Deck Description

Milling for you, milling for you, and milling for me!
Yay, equality!

This is a Budget Deck (BD for short). It is meant primarily for casual play, and its estimated mid value is aimed to land between 10 and 20 US dollars at most. Take this detail into consideration when browsing the deck!

I mostly use MTG Vault for my own private projects nowadays, but feel free to comment or request a deck of your choice. I've loved the Vault so far, and I like that they are still improving on it, as well as I am improving on my English language skills.

So, if you like what you see, consider checking out some of my other budget-y work from the link below.

How to Play

This deck is yet again something completely different:
attempting to combine milling and self-milling into a singular package!

I don't mean that you should attempt to win by milling every single time, but since Cut Your Losses is such an AMAZING card, you should consider it. With even the most simple of milling-effects, a single usage of Cut Your Losses (with a successful casualty-usage) can enable you to mill for the win, since it mills 75% of your opponent's deck! The other option is to mill YOURSELF (or both you and your opponent) by using Cut Your Losses, enabling you to greatly enhance your arsenal of usable cards (since many of them can be utilized from your graveyard).

Besides milling, this deck's win con is to grind your opponent's life total to 0 by constantly assaulting them with flying creatures, both big and small. Foul Watcher can begin your early onslaught, while filling up your graveyard and becoming an useful 'casualty' for your Cut Your Losses later on, while Vantress Gargoyle is a really good (and cheap) card as well! Later on Screaming Swarm and Geralf's Masterpiece, along with Body Double, can provide you with the resources needed to bring down your foe!

Use the sideboard when needed to overcome the more peskier opponents!

Deck discussion for BD: Sepulchral Secrets

Trepanation Blade would buff a creature when attacking as well as mill your opponent a little bit. Drawback is that you can only mill your opponent and not yourself.

Yea, I included it in my 'BD: Burn and... Mill?' deck.

I'll put two in the sideboard!
