Sideboard (6 cards)

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

So, I had an idea about an alternative way to abuse Fraying Sanity, ie not a direct mill idea. The idea came after reading Wheel of Fate for the umpteenth time shortly after Fraying Sanity was spoiled. The idea is to get Fraying Sanity out, then play targeted and mass loot effects.

The problem I'm having is deciding on which loot effects to use. Spell based ones can be copied with cards like Twincast and Izzet Guildmage, as well as recast with Goblin Dark-Dwellers and Snapcaster Mage, but they're all once off effects. Permanent based looting is usable every turn, and can be copied with Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers, but the cards are susceptible to removal.

Should I use spell based, permanent based, or a mix?
Should I even bother with the copy effects?
Should I include Sphinx's Tutelage, or rely solely on Fraying Sanity?

Deck discussion for Ideas about Sanity

Archive Trap seems fun, 26 cards for a fetch land, also Traumatize would make them discard there entire deck. Working on a mill myself with Fraying Sanity (I know jumping on the band wagon). But, Forced Fruition maybe a nice addition for this deck.

I was trying to avoid the standard mill interactions with Fraying in favour of the mass / targeted looting, just to be different. Forced Fruition is a great card, I've played against it a few times, but I feel 6 mana for the card is too slow for a mill deck (of any kind).
