This is my baby, my pride and joy, my go to in a new EDH group. It is centered around my favorite mechanic, and houses some of my most favorite cards from the entire MTG catalog. This is Szadek, Lord of Secrets and the Dimir special: MIll. I love the mechanic, but I love watching my opponent’s face as they see countless cards and strategies pile up in their graveyards.
People always ask why I do not run Lazav as my commander, and my response is always the same: I want to win. Over time I found out that to win by Mill you have to really dedicate to it, which is why I went with Szadek. He wont come out until mid or late game, but once he ddoes he can really start mowing through a deck. Lazav is a bomb, and very very good, but he does not to further the Mill aspect of this deck, which is the win condition. It is possible to get a commander damage win, but the them main point is to mill them out. I have considered taking a great deal of the creatures out and running counter spells, but have not been able to play test that combo.
