Iím not really a mill guy but this seems like the perfect shell to abuse my favorite card in standard, so I present: Song of Crabation

4 Crab
4 Innkeeper
4 Secret Keeper
4 Cobra
4 Borrower
4 Bonecrusher
4 Beanstalk
4 Tutelage
4 Song of Creation
1 Seagate Restoration

4 Fabled Passage
4 Triome
4 Riverglide
4 Cragcrown
3 Island
3 Forest
1 Mountain

Easy game, easy life. Just play adventure creatures, play Song, Crab & Tute your opponents away

I genuinely believe that the interaction between Song and Adventures was always extremely powerful, crab allows you to play under your opponent rather than trying to go over the top with wish boards and so on.

Had to craft 4 Cobras to make this work (seemed like a worthy investment) but I'm back to having fun with my good unscrupulous Innkeeper buddy.

Yeah, I went 4-2 with the colourless deck. It's too slow to compete against any real decks, but its endgame is much stronger than all the other ones and they're too slow to win before the endgame.

No offense to the colorless players because I think itís a cool deck, but it really just speaks to how OP Ugin is that you can just build your entire deck around them and have it pay off.

Mill is so much fun. It's a style of play I've never used before. I'm amazed at how much thought can go into it. I had a Triple Tutelege / Into the story (24 cards) and then double Crab with a Passage (12 cards). I milled off 36 cards in one round. I got a snap concede. It was so much fun.

I agree, but recently I'm being matched only against other mill decks. The games tend to be short and most of the time end up on turn 5/6 - most of the time first person who puts Ruin Crab on the field wins. So, on one hand daily is super quick, on another - game is becoming ultra monotonous. Still, there are some fun cases - for example, today won when I had no cards in my library and still managed to mill my opponent out; also lost when my opponent drew 2 Bloodthirsts to counter my Crabs and 3 Cancels to counter my Teferi Tutelages

I hate when you feel like you had a slam dunk drafting success with your lane wide open just to brick 0/3. Such an awful feeling. I ended up in R/B with Relic Robber, Scourge of the Skyclaves, Zagras, Deadly Alliances, Roil Eruptions, Spike field Hazard, Pelakka Predation, goblin rogues, warriors and wizards including three bug wranglers and two of the sneaks to help Robber get in, Fireblade Charger, Shatter Skull Minotaur, Ravager's Mace, etc. I could curve out with warriors, rogues, wizards and clerics with a nice efficient removal pile, nasty finishers, fun synergies, and then,

A short, terse fart of a run as I flood and get smashed by Drana three times in a row.

I was gonna play it then do the crying emote but he killed me before I could. I never saw him play it but I'm sure with the white mana he must have been packing them too so he could Plague Wind me.

My mind was boggled when I came here and saw people saying that the colorless event deck is good. I've been playing it all day because it seems cool, and I reckon I'm rocking maybe a 10% winrate with it. Most games consist of me piddling around with incredibly weak creatures and super slow mana-producing artifacts while my opponent, who actually has good cards that cost less than 6 mana, develops a board and kills me. Am I missing something?

I got mana screwed with it about half the time. But getting Forsaken Monument out kicks it into high gear.

Was playing it in Mythic, confirmed fun...and beautiful too I guess?

Also I only lost 10% of games with the colorless deck. Aggressively trade and semi-aggressively sac artifacts for cards. Because once you have the monument out, itís game over usually.

Mulligan so you can ramp to four on three and have one of the karns and enjoy brown.

As far as I can tell, success in the deck is wholly dependent on whether or not you get Forsaken Monument out.

I was playing the selesnya counters deck and I have no idea why Stormwild Capridor is in there. It's like someone just searched +1/+1 counters in standard and put that in there for some reason. Like loving Gnarlid Colony is more useful.

The truth of the matter is that in my very first game with the deck I ramped perfectly into turn 4 monument turn 5 WAR Ugin turn 6 M21 Ugin and Iíve been chasing that high ever since.
