This guy's not a defender. Slap a Sword of Body and Mind on him and get in there!

I own a mill deck, and boy is it fun. You find your opponents frustrated at what was put into their graveyards after casting a mind funeral. I use a card called Kathari Remnant. Cascading into a Mind Funeral is a whole bunch of fun, and it creates a staller than can continuously block. I've got four of those, and two Odious Trows. Deny reality is also a nice cascade card. With a bunch of tome scours, and a few drowner initiates. Oona Queen of the Fae as my trump... Couple Zombie Outlanders, Slave of Bolas, Deny Reality and Sedraxis Alchemists... You got yourself a nice affordable mill deck. What some people fail to understand about mill decks is that regeneratable creatures are a pain in the ass when you're getting the everliving shit milled out of you. It's a beautiful thing to... (see all)

If you have 2 of these guys out, does it double the effect? 6 cards milled for each land you have enter?

Probably the best piece of flavor text ever printed.

This little guy doesn't LOOK like much, but trust me, you will be sorry if you don't remove him because his ability adds up. Especially if you have several of them on you.

@Eonsofevil: I don't think you need more than one Tsunami, really.

The only useful Crab creature ever printed in the history of Magic.

I'm not a fan of mill, but the excuse that it doesn't let you play things is so stupid. How is getting milled any different than just plain killed? Instead of dealing 20 damage, they mill 50 cards. It's certainly harder to combat, but that isn't the fault of the people playing the mill decks.

That said, while I have a mill deck, I don't play it much. While in multiplayer it can all but instantly take someone out, it seems a bit unsporting. Yes, Traumatize + Mind Funeral + Tome Scour is pretty nice, getting a 40 card deck down to about 5 cards, it isn't fun to get hit with. It's a legitimate tactic, but it just isn't that fun to play against.

And as for 4x Archive Trap in the first hand, for a 60 card deck, they are dead second turn. They already drew 7, and you milled them for 52. A 1 card library doesn't last long.
