Jace's Erasure + Memory Lapse on their turn = 80% Counterspell. 80% is just a rough estimate... unless the opponent is able to draw again.

If you're doing a standard mill deck, this is essential. Combo it with cards like Preordain and Sphinx of Magosi for a lot of draw speed. I run four and it actually helps.

However, if you don't care about standard and are going vintage, there are much better cards and you can skip this one.

I agree with blueRock, I play a reanimate deck, and a lot of times people with a few milly cards decide to throw them at me, I wonder why because it really just gives me access to more of my deck.

people have hit me with tomb scour on turn one, and not milled me at all for the rest of the game! other times they play cards with mill tacked on, and I always tell them "you know your supposed to target yourself with that right?" they just look at me funny like "why the hell would I do that?"

Everything goes well with Consecrated Sphinx.

Milling is as blue as it gets. Red does not have the foresight to attack what it doesn't know about. Red thinks only of the present, attacking and destroying the threats that it can see. Blue is methodical. It realizes that not all threats are obvious, and fights a war of attrition, preventing the threats from ever coming into existence. Really, milling is just a super-counter. Rather than waiting to know what's coming, blue counters what its opponent is doing before its opponent KNOWS what its doing.

I played this with Teferi's Puzzle Box and psychic possession. It was pretty much ridiculous.

Edit: Remembered exsistance of Psychic Vortex. Deck should scream.

i always memoracide the eldrazi titans, then use a brainstorm with an echomage... oops. hay mister, you droped your deck!

Your coment is very well composed and you make an excellent point. This card only serves any purpose if you have a deck very specifically designed to mill as fast as possible, but I've actually found it to be pretty effective. I run a mono blue mill/control deck where this combos VERY nicely with Consecrated Sphinx and Temple Bell, and it's nice to have this out next to my Hedron Crab(s) while I counter and unsummon until turn six when I can drop the Sphinx. After he's out, Jace's Erasure is my win condition.

@ BlueRock

You are right, there are tons of better mill cards out there, but this card lets you mill your opponent simply by drawing cards yourself. If you manage to get four of these out,

Font of Mythos
Pursuit of Knowledge
Mind Spring
Consecrated Sphinx

turns into, even more, devilish cards. This might be the best card to enable milling as an aternate win condition. If this card would mill for just one more card, it would be insane.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
