Welcome!
I love mill. I like to try and diversify and streamline the effectiveness of the meta, beyond the usual UB mill.

Many are of my own design; some are inspired by others'. In either case, if you love mill, you're in the right place.

Questions and comments are welcome; and (as always) +1's preciated.

Enjoy!

GreatGoofini- That's a nice card I wasn't aware of. Cheap, Tutorable... I don't seem to have one in my collection, though. Gonna have to check around my local meta and see if anyone has a spare. It'll probably go in place of Trickbind, as that has the same purpose, but takes up real estate until I need to use it.

Thanks alot!

Lame. I play really fast homebrews, which do well at local modern constructed, but I would never dream of aging at a larger regional level. There's something to be said about wrecking a few $800 meta decks though with a silly $50 brew that is more priceless than winning a competition.

I'm aware of that combo, and I agree: it's kinda lame.

I've built this to be a bit more interactive and grindy. A real frustrator, even if it doesn't win consistently; I want it to be more fun.

casual_competitive thanks for the upvote!

Unsure why Mesmeric Orb didn't make the cut. It is, after all, one of my favorite mill cards to use. I may remove the Thrumming Stone mechanic and focus more on the static mill and counterspells. This will give me room for a few more wanted considerations:

Trophy Mage- for tutoring Isochron Scepter or Mesmeric Orb.

And perhaps a couple Jaces I have sitting in my collection unused.

Look for an update soon, and play hard, friends.

That's what I meant to say. I'm actually not big on the Traumatize win, but when in Rome...

DeinoStinkus- first, thanks for the upvote!

I don't have a Fleet Swallower. And you're right, it is a bit slow, and expensive.

I'm going to disagree with Teferi's Tutelage, though. I play a lot of multi-player commander, and Psychic Corrosion hits ALL opponents for the same cost. I find that the global mill is far more valuable than the ETB cantrip for the meta.

Mystical tutor is a nice card, but if I'm going to use it for Traumatize I could use a more budget version: Trapmaker's Snare. It's not as versatile, but it doesn't cost $15 either.

I've actually thought about putting in Fabricate and Altar of the Brood, but where to put them?

Suggestions and any other input are welcome.

Thanks!!
