Any ideas would be helpful


// Lands
4 [ISD] Nephalia Drownyard-mills 3 each use
4 [M12] Drowned Catacomb
4 [SOM] Darkslick Shores
6 [ISD] Island (2)

// Creatures
4 [ISD] Invisible Stalker-unblockable,untargetable by opponents, and great to put a sword or curiosity on

// Spells
4 [ISD] Dream Twist- mills 6
4 [ISD] Curiosity-great with stalker for definite card draw
4 [M12] Ponder-good setup card
4 [ISD] Think Twice-kinda iffy on this one
4 [ISD] Dissipate-Counters the good stuff so they cant get it back
4 [M12] Mana Leak-self explanatory
2 [M12] Jace, Memory Adept- mainly just for his 0 ability
4 [ISD] Curse of the Bloody Tome-they mill 2 each upkeep per
4 [M12] Jace's Erasure-iffy on.. but with all the draw it seems good
4 [SOM] Sword of Body and Mind-great on stalker since unless they can deal with the sword they mill 10 each attack

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [MBS] Go for the Throat
SB: 3 [SOM] Grasp of Darkness
SB: 4 [M12] Doom Blade
SB: 4 [NPH] Dismember


I put all the needed removal in the board. The deck could work and should be fast enough to both control the board and mill them. Any suggestions?

i think you need to add white here for day of judgments. Ditch black and play orings? I don't have accept to a card database so Idk what other removal is good in white.
you need some kind of mass removal. Birthing pod and tempered steal are the two #1 decks atm.

I don't really like the stalker sword combo here. You need to dedicate 8 card slots, and all they need to do is kill the sword to break both cards having any effect.

You also need some way of dealing with birthing pod decks as it is the most popular deck atm. I don't see any artifact destruction.

They would have to get around the control for pod to reach play. As far as killing the swords... If they are able to get rid of them that is fine.. Stalker is still getting in there and drawing me cards with curiosity. I suppose I could switch the board to white, but that would kill off the milling land.

Edit: It would open up some options.. but it would get away from the point of the deck.

I ended up also making a creatureless version which is basically just UB disruption/mill control


// Lands
4 [ISD] Nephalia Drownyard
4 [M12] Drowned Catacomb
4 [SOM] Darkslick Shores
6 [ISD] Island (2)

// Spells
4 [ISD] Dream Twist
4 [M12] Ponder
4 [ISD] Dissipate
4 [M12] Mana Leak
2 [M12] Jace, Memory Adept
4 [ISD] Curse of the Bloody Tome
4 [SOM] Memoricide- tempered steel deck? not anymore its not! lol
4 [NPH] Surgical Extraction- gets rid of up to 4 cards for 1 mana
4 [MBS] Horrifying Revelation- discard/mill in 1 card.. need i say more?
4 [M12] Distress-early disruption and possible setup for extraction
4 [MBS] Black Sun's Zenith-reoccuring creature control

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [MBS] Go for the Throat
SB: 4 [M12] Doom Blade
SB: 3 [NPH] Dismember
SB: 4 [NPH] Praetor's Grasp


wouldn't mind comments on this one too.

Kane! No no no no no no no...... you get some aspects wrong.
Memoricide against Steel?
Distress for early Disruption?
4 Zenith?

You should be more versatile in your build!
Ive been testing a normal UB Controll version with 2 Jaces and 2 Nephalia Downyards and I win with Mill a lot just because my late game is good.
Memoricide is a SB card! It has no impact on the board and since u have no creatures thats very bad!

If you really want to go for the Mill try Shriekhorn, Jaces Erase and Tezzerets Gambit with Lifes Finale and some Jace Protection.
Jace is just sooo good for Milling plz play 4!

I actually didn't even think about Shriekhorn. As for the Erasure's... I think they might be a bit slow unless I am running alot of draw spells.

Memorocide doesnt have to be a SB card. You name the card and then search their deck and remove all copies of named card, and if they aren't running any then you still get to see their deck and figure what the best stuff is to deal with.
