In zendicar, it was common to be milled around 6 a turn from random crabs or annoying allies, not to mention the rares that eat huge portions of libraries in one hit. Now they toned it down a lot with a minor theme of taking a few nibbles off the top. No one will notice.

Yeah! That's how we'll beat the phyrexians! The power of music!

Fetcheable by Trinket Mage.
Will help you reach metalcraft.
Works with proliferate.
Good against scry or any harbinger/tutor effect that leaves the card on top of your opponent's library.

It also works quite well with a charged Bloodchief Ascension. As soon as it's charged, if you have one Shriekhorn out, it's deal 4 damage + gain 4 life right away and the next two turns. Since you already dealed at least 6 to your opponent, that doesn't leave much life left.

I am sure there is something to do with this.

"Mill 6 for 1 mana" -
No. Tome Scour mills 5 for {U}. Shriekhorn mills 6 for {1} over the course of three turns, which might as well be a lifetime in terms of competitive play.

@tcollins: Not all cards are intended for competitive play. I personally love this card for both limited and casual.

Mill 6 for 1 mana. Works with all colours.
Yes it can be destory, also it can be recharged. Great common.

Srsly ppl this is a limited millstone for 1, it's tutorable with trinket mage, rechargable with prolif/venser/vedalkin infuser etc. with all the other mill effects in standard, tome scour, archive trap etc, this is actually quite amazing. I'm working on building a u/b infect-miller deck with this grindclock the prolif mechanic decimator web some black or artifact infecters and of course the triple threat of tome scour traumatize and archive trap

Tome Scours 5-8 maybe?

I personally like me some shriek, but only if I play Screeching silcaw as well. They're both undesirable commons, so I grab every one of them in limited. For constructed, these guys will most likely never see play.

Strictly better than millstone for three turns. Strictly worse for the rest of the game.
