Mr. Q. .... I've played this card before... And I've found blue control with a splash of white was the best way to play this card... Windborn Muse (not Dreamborn Muse) with other key artifacts like Sculpting Steel can make this deck mill your opponent completely the round the first orb comes out.... I even threw in 4x Darksteel Colossus just in case it was close... (the whole indestructible shuffle in rule...) 4.5/5.... Very tricky card to play, that's why the -.5 ... Really good tho...

Well I am personally in love with this card.

Ive come up with a few decks using this, and a friend of mine has a couple.

Gaia's Blessing is a MUST, at a minimum of two, if you're worried about decking at all.
My favorite combo personally is with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. my deck is black green, in conjunction with Alluren, and many two and three cost knights (IE: Black Knight, Phyrexian Crusader, and Stillmoon Cavalier). Bloodbond March is also a good combo for such a deck. though i personally only use it as a 1 of.

another WONDERFUL combo with mesmeric Orb is using Aphetto Alchemist and Future Sight. now toss in Snap and Rewind. Keep in mind you must be usin atleast one, but preferabbly two, Gaia's Blessing. narcomeba is great in here as well. You're al... (see all)

Fastest way to mill a deck. but does is the effect cumulative when there are multiples in play? and what about Auras and Equipment- does a creature that untaps with an Aura or an Equipment attached count as two permanents untapping?

@Kryptnyt: it doesn't actually work that way. It creates the triggers during the untap phase, but they won't go on the stack until the beginning of the upkeep. Only after all the triggers are put on the stack does anyone get priority.

I have it in my self-mill deck, alongside stuff like Boneyard Wurm, Sewer Nemesis, Splinterfright and co.

Things got a bit silly very quickly. Most of my side of the board was bigger than Marit Lage.

Great flavor text. Really matches the theme and flow of this card.

That's a nice Seedborn Muse you've got there.

I've built an Ichorid Skaab Ruinator deck around this. It works pretty well actually. The idea is that you get fuel for yourself to get efficient creatures, while having a side-win-con of milling.

If I have multiple Orbs on the field does the milling multiply for each card going into the graveyard?
