Dear WotC,

PLEASE STOP forcing Blue/Black mill.
I know players like milling someone out but its getting old.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy mill but this is starting to get ridiculous.
Please go back to cards like Recoil, Undermine, Agony Warp, Diabolic Vision.

Out of the 20 U/B legendary creatures: 5 are mill, 2 are mill dependent, 8 are unplayable (all the old bordered ones are bad), the other 5 have various degrees of playability.
I'm not saying get rid of mill forever just give it a break for a while, please.

As one not prone to much Standard play, I'm looking forward to doing sadistic things with Undead Alchemist.

2. tap grimgrin have opponent mill 6. as long as they hit atleast one creature u get one zombie from undead alchemist
3. sac the new zombie to untap grimgrin
4. tap grimgrin to have opponent mill 7.
5. rinse and repeat as an opponent looses their deck and creatures ^_^

Gcrudaplaneswalker: This card would have been broken if the cards were exiled instead of going to the graveyard. Imagine the power of Nightveil Specter equipped with Accorder's Shield if the milled cards were exiled. It may have originally been exiled during the design phase but there is no way they would have allowed it to pass if they play tested it first that way.

On the one hand, it'd be nice to see some more wacky tutoring and stealing effects for {U}{B}, but on the other, this is a vital piece of an awesome mill deck that people have been wanting for a while. Hello my Doorkeeper/Defender deck, DADDY'S HOME.

From what they've said, the pendulum's about to swing away from mill for a while, so I'm glad this guy is there to plant the flag for it over the next year.

I don't have a problem with mill. And this looks very powerful. But Blue or Black isn't my favorite color pair for its power. It's for all the flavorful, varied, elegant and downright insanely cool cards that result when blue and black intersect.

Given that Lazav was a straight-up love letter to everything blue and black does, ideal for mill but also good with countering, sacrifices, discard and kill spells, and cipher was an awesome mechanic (even if it had to be understandably weak), yes I am disappointed that our patron god is "Just an insanely powerful manaless repeatable mill effect attached to a huge cheap indestructible creature." It's *very* good, but it doesn't have that blue-black swagger.
