This decklist is a continuation from two different threads located here and here (the former being the most recently updated). Since I do actually have a working list, I figured it would be behooving of me post it on this board.

I do have a bit to say about this deck, especially history (similar to my other deck), but, for now I'll post the basic rubric and come to update later.

The basic concept of this deck is to force my opponents to draw excessive cards either from spells like Prosperity, Skyscribing, Urza's Guilt, etc., and with permanents such as Kami of the Crescent Moon, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, etc. while making those draws seriously hurt with cards like Psychosis Crawler, Phyrexian Tyranny, Underworld Dreams, etc.

I am running what I feel are some of the better options for milling as a backdrop to the excessive draws. My rationale is if I am making a player potentially draw a decent portion of their deck, why not supplement that with milling effects that finish off the rest of their library. I am not running Tunnel Vision, however, because I feel it requires too many cards to make it effective.

I am running two pseudo draw engines. Those being Teferi's Puzzle Box + Moonring Mirror (which is basically playing two hands at once), and Teferi's Puzzle Box + Uba Mask which is my way of giving the other players their second "hand" even it if is ephemeral. The second combo does effect and potentially hurt me, so I am running a few card draw replacement cards via Words of War, Psychic Possession, Obstinate Familiar

I am running into a few issues, but in the spirit of brevity, I won't copy+paste from here. So, if you are to post a suggestion, either area is fine.

Whoops, forgot the rest of the card tags. Everything has been tagged now.

I've also made a few small changes.

- Tormod's Crypt .:. + Nihil Spellbomb
- Zhuge Jin, Wu Strategist
- Barbed Shocker
- Shocker
- Chandra Ablaze
- Grimoire Thief
- Empyrial Plate

+ Mind's Eye
+ Whirlpool Rider
+ See Beyond
+ Laquatus's Creativity
+ Wistful Thinking
+ Scroll Rack

For now, these are temporary changes. I'm still trying to work the kinks out. My motive for adding these cards are because I wanted to bank more on forced discard effects and throw in a few shuffle effects.
