It costs zero mana to walk in on yer grandma gettin' dressed. That's a cheap traumatize. Just sayin'.

This is a solid card for mil, but despite my best efforts, it never makes the final cut for my deck. Probably the high cost compared to a lot of little guys who can combo faster for the same effect.
Here's an example of how my mill deck plays:

Turn one: Island, Hedron Crab
Turn two: Drowned Catacomb, Breaking or Glimpse the Unthinkable
Turn three: Swamp, Mind Funeral
Turn four: Demonic Tutor for another Hedron Crab. Then, which works surprisingly well, drop Terramorphic Expanse, sac it, get another land into play. That combo'd with the two Hedron Crabs gives you some good mill.
Turn five: Swamp, Haunting Echoes
Now it's possible you took a beating, so I always hold on to something like Damnation... (see all)

Truly obnoxious in EDH, mostly because counting 40+ cards takes forever.

On no, Traumatize is back...

This card is broken, WotC.
Face it, you are addicted to making broken mill cards. YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.

Can this card be cancelled by using 'Pay no Heed'?

Most players forget that the fastest way to figure out how many cards are being milled is to:
First, count cards in hand.
Add the number of cards in play (owned by that player)
Add the cards in the graveyard and in exile.

Subtract this total from 60 (100 if you're in commander).
Divide the remaining number by 2, and round appropriately.

Easy example
Player being milled has 7 cards in play, 3 in hand, 5 in grave, 2 in exile - that's 17 total. Their library should then have 43 cards left in it, so you mill by 21.

Of course, this only works in formatted games and assumes no wishes were made, but it's a lot faster than scooping up their library and counting the cards off one by one, ESPECIALLY in EDH.

The quickest way I've found to count eschews mathematics entirely for a simpler method: just take the top bit off their deck, set it next to the bottom half, and keep taking cards off the top until they don't 'slide' (the tops are flush and cards can't slide from one pile to the other). Takes a flat surface, of course, but it takes seconds and requires zero thought beyond remembering not to accidentally shuffle.

Of course, I don't see anyone list Consuming Aberration! No no...

Or, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind!

Or, goodness me, Living Death!

The possibilities!
