Mtg: The Top 10 Mill Cards
An Effective Mill Deck should never be without these cards! The 10 strongest millers in the game!
Its Miller Time! (haha). Milling is one of the most annoying, obnoxious and unstoppable ways of defeating your opponent! This list will recall the best ways to defeat your opponent without dealing any damage! (For those of you newer players, a player looses the game if they cannot draw a card). Watch out, this list is grounds for building an awesome mill deck!…
#10 Tome Scour – Magic 2010 – Common
This cheap first turn cast gets the game going rather quickly for your deck. For only one mana, this card effectively mills the first five cards from your opponents deck. Even later in the game it can make a difference and at common, its easy to get your hands on one! (unlike several of the cards on this list)
#9 Drowner of Secrets – Lorwyn – Uncommon
This card falls in at number 9 because of its restricted ability. When used in its element, it can prove to be one of the most deadly cards in the game! A lorwyn merfolk deck is hands down one of the most powerful ways to go mill, and the most unique! (Thanks Elpfan18 for reminding me that over and over again!)
#8 – Nemesis of Reason - Alara Reborn – Rare
For a converted 5 mana this guy is the poster child for “not too shabby”. With a solid 10 card mill each declared attack, more than one in a deck can really begin to hurt your opponents! Plus, with its being black, its slightly harder to kill!
#7 – Traumatize – M10 – Rare
Upon first glance, many newer players immediately think this is the greatest card in the milling game! At times, it can be, but more often than not there is a cheaper alternative. If you’re already milling, half the deck might not actually be that much…and the worst part is, this card cannot end the game. I will admit is combos very nicely with a little card called Haunting Echoes though…
#6 – Archive Trap – Zendikar – Rare
