"Nothing You Have Ever Witnessed Before Has Prepared You for Such Sheer Stabbing Shock! The Birds is coming! ... And remember, the next scream you hear could be your own!"-Alfred Hitchcock

Companion: Jegantha, the Wellspring
The goal of this deck is to use Mindshrieker to win! You can do this in two ways- The first way is to mill your opponent to death with Mindshrieker after establishing infinite mana with Bloom Tender/Sanctum Weaver and Freed from the Real. The other way is to make Mindshrieker big through Mindshrieker's milling ability, this could give Mindshrieker +15/15 if Emrakul is on top of your library.

Mindshrieker-Bird on Roids

Mindshrieker, an unassuming 1/1 creature, can quickly become a house. With assistance of cards like Training Grounds, It'll be 20/20 in no time.
The deck is loaded with high mana value cards like the Emrakul to make Mindshrieker big. The deck has plenty of top deck manipulation, thanks to cards like Reason / Believe, which is a high mana value in itself.
Mindshrieker-Master of Mill

Obtain infinite mana with the 2 card combo of Freed from the Real plus Bloom Tender or Sanctum Weaver, then Mindshrieker can mill out your opponent's entire library. You can also use the mana to hard cast Emrakul.
Even if you don't have a mana sink in your hand like Mindshrieker or Emrakul, you can always utilize the infinite mana to cast your companion, Jegantha, the Wellspring, a 5/5 creature, from your sideboard. Also be sure to check your graveyard for casting cards like Reason / Believe.

Insect Swarm

Defend yourself with Hornet Nest, then cast Charge of the Forever-Beast onto it, revealing a high mana value card to summon an insect army. With Emrakul in hand, you could net yourself 15 flying deathtouch creatures, but with Jegantha, the Wellspring in your sideboard, you should always get at least five bugs.

Mana Base

Choose a mana base that best fits your play style, keep in mind that fetchlands will affect scrying value from cards like Reason / Believe.

Sideboard Considerations

Mindshrieker can mill cards placed on top of the library from Aether Gust. The life gain from Living Destiny can be useful against certain burn decks.
