I'm seeing that people are hating on grindclock for some reason, I play a mill deck myself and was happy to add 2 of these, they work perfectly with a thrummingbird. Send out grindclock and tap for 1 counter, then proliferate with thrummingbird, just landfall with hedron crab and tome scour. I dont even use traumatize or archive trap, I mill just fine. Work with what you got.

So sick in a proliferate deck. It gets out of control real fast. :D 5/5

After much playtesting, definitely best in a proliferate control deck rather than any kind of mill deck. Though having that Thrummingbird pick up a Sword of Body and Mind isn't a bad idea either.

This card is preeeetty much sick. In my "Factory" deck, charge counters and porliferate, this thing gets huge. My friend plays a crazy 132 card deck and have milled it all down to nothing in less than four turns on many an occasion.

Maybe it could make an appearance in a proliferate deck after the eldrazis rotate out allowing mill to not be annihilated (no pun inteded) after sideboarding.

I'm working on a deck built around Phyrexian Rebirth and Bonehoard, and this works pretty great with the latter. If you're at a stalemate with no one attacking, get the advantage by milling a few of your opponent's creatures and boosting up the Bonehoard.

Clock of Omens + Unwinding Clock

My casual artifact deck is going to have some fun! :D

I was really, really excited about grindclock. Ordered 4 of them. Put a lot of work into a standard UB control proliferate deck with this as the main win con...

...all of which, I know, was pretty stupid, and competitively it works about as well as you'd think. But man oh man is it ever fun to play.

Nobody's mentioned Energy Chamber or Coretapper?

I'm a huge fan of Millstone, but I have to admit than Grindclock has rendered the old Millstone obsolete. Grindclock's primary advantage is that it doesn't take mana to activate. Yes, Grindclock can take advantage of proliferate, yes Grindclock tends to grind a tad faster, but I would still make an argument for Millstone as viable competition in many cases were it not for the activation cost. Grindclock is the new Millstone.
