Run with Ghost Quarter and Path to Exile to thin out their lands? Then make them sad by playing Archive Trap?

New Gatecrash spoilers show Consuming Aberration which is a kind of Mind Funeral and a part of Sewer Nemesis rolled into one, and to think, I used to play with those cards separately.

This is to Mind Grind what Shock is to Fireball.

I run this with Ghost Quarter and Archive Trap. Don't search your deck for a replacement land? My Ghost Quarter is as effective as a Strip Mine. You do search for another land? I get to Archive Trap you and later my Mind Funeral will be more potent.

"Mind Funeral" sounds like an awesome name for a metal band. The card's pretty good too.

I haven't seen any rock-solid math for this card on here yet, so I programmed a simple simulation to see how many cards on average this spell would mill. I used a deck size of 60 cards, casting this spell after the opponent had drawn their starting hand of 7, plus 3 cards, which seems reasonable given that this is a 3-mana spell. I varied the lands between 19 (hyper-aggressive) and 26 (hyper-control) to show the effectiveness spectrum. The simulation was run one million times for each scenario. Here we go:

Average cards milled from deck with 19 land cards: 12.2
Average cards milled from deck with 20 land cards: 11.62
Average cards milled from deck with 21 land cards: 11.09
Average cards milled from deck with 22 land cards: 10.61
Average cards milled from deck with 23 land cards: 10.17
Average cards milled from deck with 24 land cards: 9.76
Average cards milled from deck with 25 land cards: 9.38
Average cards milled from deck with 26 land cards: 9.04

We can conclude from these results... (see all)

my experience with this card has been that it mills between 15-26 on average, but even if you mill only 4 and they are all lands early in the game that can be devastating.

Guest, I love the statistical approach. Glimpse the Unthinkable is generally the more efficient card. However, the great thing about this is that so many people thin their decks of lands disproportionately. So as they get more lands out, this will probably be more effective than Glimpse. I'd stick it in against decks using harrow and the like.

One of my favorite cards. Got a play set of these babies along with 18 other cards signed today by rk post at GP Manila. Totally worth the four hour commute to and from home.
