    That is a weird mill card…

    • TomGalonska

      it’s worse sphinx’s tutelage, but maybe with pull from tomorrow and some other mill cards it could work.

      • > a worse Sphinx’s Tutelage
        Not to a deck that runs Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Archive Trap, etc .

  • Kitnz

    Whenever a new mill card is printed, I started chanting “Mill! Mill! Mill!” (think Bill Nye intro of old).

  • Schaf

    The translation should be: At the beginning of each end step enchanted player puts the top X card of his or her library into his or her graveyard, where X is the total number of cards put into his or her graveyard from anywhere this turn.

    • galen150

      you sure about that last part? it says above that X is cards drawn.

      • Murilo Mazza

        Yes, it is not correctly translated

      • ShammySham

        Yeah, you don’t need to know spanish to know what this says. Prior to ‘X’, the text references ‘cemiterio’ for graveyard (Cemetery). After the ‘X’ it references ‘cemiterio’ again. This means the last clause has to relate to the graveyard. The translation above does not, which means the translation has to be incorrect.

        Edit – In many languages, there are words that are easily picked out as close to english. You just have to know the english word it is related to.

    • This is correct, and now I’m hoping for a Traumatize reprint.

    a blue red wheel mill deck might be a thing now considering the locust god?

    • Sciguy27

      I don’t really see the Locust God getting a ton of play in formats other than Commander. Red/blue wants to hold up mana fpr responses, and six mana is a lot

  • Shagoth

    Wheel effects.
    Effectively removes sixteen cards from their deck every time you play one, and you get card advantage. (First card drawn, the seven cards they drew, then they mill the 7+1)

    • name moniker

      wait let me double check:
      your draw step (+1)
      play wheel effect while this is in play both palyers discard their hand and draw 7 (+ 14)
      end of turn they mill 15
      …15 milled plus the 7 they drew is 22 cards out of their deck … seems legit

  • Kaiser

    This with consuming aberration…oh my god. Milling kill is real.

  • ChaosEngineer

    My Nin EDH deck is about to explode! This plus to Locus God is like Christmas!

  • Fred “Deakon” Rebhun

    Translation doesn’t say this, but its also sub-type Curse!!!

    • name moniker

      underneath the “Color: Blue” it says “Type: Enchantment – Aura, Curse”

      • Fred “Deakon” Rebhun

        hmmm…. not on my screen….

  • Nanya

    Nekusaur want?

    • MTG Deck Guru

      me too

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    No! Bad Nekusar! Stay away! Don’t make me bring out the Spirit of the Labyrinth again!

    • Ultramegalord

      Nekusar just wants to give out hugs man ;p only question is what do i cut……

  • Chaospyke

    And Mill is back in standard.

    • Zombie

      Mill is never back.

      • Happy The Cat

        inb4 sphinx’s tutalage comes back in the Core set

        • Zombie

          God help us all

        • sansmyhands

          Please don’t get my hopes up like that.

        • DasIsFuck

          funny thing is, if Magic duels wasn’t doomed, this card should be the first card after the fever visiom what is directly support that deck:D

      • Shawn Michael Diaz

        There’s a mill 13 card and a land that copies spells. Why wouldn’t mill be back

        • Zombie

          Because mill is complete and utter garbage.

          It’s like “fetch”. Stop trying to make it happen. It’s never going to happen.

          Mill is only playable when its cards are completely pushed beyond reason, see: Glimpse the Unthinkable.

          • Shawn Michael Diaz

            You can mill 52 cards on turn 7 in a mono-blue mill deck pretty reliably.

  • Eli Eyal Broide

    So… I’m guessing the Scarab God is a mill god?

    • Rœkja

      Please no… anything but mill.

      • Happy The Cat

        well, so far both of them have had interactive effects with triggers, so it might be when you mill X you do something.
        or they will complete the loop and he’ll have “whenever a creature you enters the battlefield(hopefully under your control) put -1/-1 counters on target creature.”

  • Edward

    Please don’t let this mean the UB god will be mil. We have Phenax. That is the only mil God we need. I want something more interesting

    • Shawn Michael Diaz

      None of the HOU gods have much synergy with the rest of the set so far. I’d be surprised if it was another mill god

      • Edward

        Well considering there is only 3 gods and 1 of them has one of the major themes in the set(-1/-1 counters) it is difficult to say what the third will be like. I am hoping for a cycle/ discard theme for the third god. It will be either 5 or 6 mana so they have room to do a lot with it

        • Shawn Michael Diaz

          I could definitely see cycling synergy on the last God

          • Edward

            I’ve seen some people say they want it to be “whenever a creature enters the battlefield put a -1/-1 counter on target creature” so all 3 gods work together in some way since The Scorpion God draws whenever a creature with a -1/-1 counter dies and The Locust God creates 1/1 tokens when you draw so it would create an infinite loop drawing you infinite cards.

          • Nikolai Anzuoni

            The U/R god already has cycling synergy. It’s card draw.

    • Gareth Martin

      Speak for yourself.

  • Fred Weasley

    Yes please! This is probably a 1 or 2 of in my existing modern mill deck.

  • ME

    Oh hello Traumatize

  • Happy The Cat

    To the one on the flamboyant tempo
    Just toss that hand to the Fraying San
    crack that land, mill it when I come and slam
    Damn, I feel like the Son of the J-man(Jace btw)
    Don’t try to Ring flick, I’ll Hex six
    end phase got cards turning like cars in a grand prix
    Aaaand, Pestermites are blinking, I’m thinking
    nobody breaking a combo with the mana I’m sinking
    Ohh,no need to crack my mind stone
    A deck like this shouldn’t have the big 4-0
    Bro, skip my main phase
    Cause a milla like me can just mill the whole game

  • Ethan Firebringer

    In multiples, this card is bonkers. I believe X is decided at resolution, so if the original number is three…
    3(original)+3(first one)+6(second one)+12(third one)+24(fourth one)=48 cards. Sounds good to me.

    • Daniel Kaine Allen

      Not quite sure that’s how that works, otherwise this will get an instaban for being way too easy to abuse if it can’t immediately be answered. We’ll just have to wait for official ruling.

      • Ethan Firebringer

        I don’t think it would result in an instaban if that is how it works. Unless the U/B god IS mill and IS able to pretty much verify a proper mill deck, I don’t think the other mill cards are good enough to make a worthy deck. There’s a lot of graveyard exile being spoiled, though, so they may be going in on mill. Plus, getting every copy of the card is very difficult in a 60 card deck in standard, and it’s not OP if 1 or 2 hit the field. The only real mill card that’s great out there right now is Startled Awake, but that’s going away in a few months. And although curving this into Startled awake to mill 26 cards turn 4 sounds like fun, I don’t know if it will be a viable strategy. This is all pertaining to standard, though. Modern mill decks would have a super field day, but in modern there are just so many ways to stop mill.
        I agree to waiting for the official ruling, but just the possibility is entertaining.

        • Daniel Kaine Allen

          Just don’t forget that it says “each end step” not just the enchanted player’s end step.

        • Shawn Michael Diaz

          Mirrorpool + Fraying Sanity + Startled Awake OR Mirrorpool, double Fraying Sanity, and Compelling Argument are both pretty strong finishers if Fraying Sanity stacks they we want it to. The first one will always kill and there’s actually mana acceleration in blue right now with Abstruse Interference and Vizier of the Tumbling Sands so I could see this being pretty good if you can consistently bounce and counter your opponents threats while still finding the pieces to win. I’m 100% building this.

    …how to push the locust god control

    • galen150

      you mean the scarab one, right?

  • galen150

    so basically it just doubles up any cards that get milled, in addition to milling a few extra for any they discard or spells they burn. does this card care about tokens going to the grave? i know that they do count as going to the graveyard, but i dont know if they count as ‘cards going to the graveyard’

    • Jalais

      Unfortunately not. “108.2b Tokens aren’t considered cards—even a card-sized game
      supplement that represents a token isn’t considered a card for rules
