This is one of the nicest cards ever, but I think she doesn´t really make a good general herself, because without being able to play Vanishing on her, or to immediately play Stranglehold, she´s not really that useful.

I run her in a faerie tribal EDH deck, because that´s where she belongs to, IMO. And apart from becoming my personal tutor engine, if enchanted with Vanishing, I also use her to lock the game down with Mindlock Orb + Necropotence. With Necropotence in play you are the only one who is still able to "draw" cards, without having to lose 3 from Maralen every round. But most of the time, I also play the Ensnaring Bridge, before I use this combo, to stop others from being able to attack me, while I still can attack with my weeny faeries.

Apart from, using the AEther Vial, or Winding Canyons, it´s also good to just take an extra turn, after you played her, to be able to immediately tutor for Vanishing. I often use Notorious Throng for ... (see all)

I'm still unsure just how useful this card can be. I know it has a lot of combo potential, but it seems like it can just make stuff more complicated instead of being a real piece. *shrug* Still, art alone this girl is a solid 4.

I just saw this on the page for this card, but Wistful Thinking is brutal with her

First search for Aven Mindcensor, then get the rest of your goodies.

Turns off ALL draw engines: Skullclamp, Well of Lost Dreams, Griselbrand, Consecrated Sphinx, etc.

Also turns dredge decks into blah...since they can't activate it (they don't ever DRAW a card).

Time Spiral becomes a free "all players shuffle their hands and graveyards into their library...that's it."

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur no longer mills you to death, but still reduces opponents' hand sizes...just in case they can still tutor for cards when Maralen is out.

Combos with: Necropotence, Scroll Rack, Thawing Glaciers for mana fixing, Stoneforge Mystic, Hermit Druid, Fauna Shaman, Dark Confidant/autoca... (see all)

For EDH, try playing Discard.

Either use Greel, Mind Raker after they search, or something that can discard a card at any time (Scepter of Fugue doesn't work unfortunately).

Some cards that can also do this are Funeral Charm and Nezumi Shortfang.

It's tricky for this to work well, because discard has been made to work at sorcery speed (for good reasons).

What happen if my opponent has Laboratory Maniac and has no library because he played Leveler. Thanks to answer quickly.
