Phenax Mill EDH. Why do things normally?


Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank = murder people one at a time.

Eater of the Dead + Phenax, God of Deception = mill everyone as long as you can keep hitting creatures

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed + Phenax, God of Deception + Intruder Alarm = whenever anyone plays a creature, you can mill someone for 3, exile a creature (including the one that just came in), and get a gold token (treasure in disguise).

Syr Konrad, the Grim + Mindcrank = turbo-mill as long as you can hit creatures. This can be stacked with several other mill methods to jump-start it.

Undead Alchemist + Altar of the Brood and/or Intruder Alarm = mill everyone as long as you hit creatures. Intruder alarm only works if you have Phenax, God of Deception in play. This also works in a similar way with Zellix, Sanity Flayer in place of the alchemist.

Many of these shenanigans combo well with each other to be more effective as well. I am sure I have missed some too that haven’t come up in playtesting yet. Deck also functions efficiently without going off as well.

Please let me know what you think!
