Quote from OCPunisher »If your commander is being targeted a lot, maybe you run a few more cheap counters. The easiest one not already on your list is Stubborn Denial. Once it rotates out of Standard, I'll be investing in some Siren Stormtamers. You might not get SG onto the table quite as fast, but it'll stay there a little longer.
You could also go for other ways to protect the God, like Dive Down, Undying Evil, Crystal Shard, etc.
Quote from Ken Carson »The way you have laid out your list is a bit hard to follow, but I don’t really see the hallmarks of a Mill deck. To dedicate to that you should be running Consuming Aberration and Altar of Dementia at the very least.
Plus you might consider switching to Lazav, Dimir Mastermind as a commander. Hexproof is gas, and he pays you off for milling opponents. The Scarab God would also just be fine in the 99.

I'll prod the developers to take another look.
(Also, irony: I didn't get a notification for this post. Apologies for the delay in response)
Quote from Ken Carson »If you don't mind infinite combos, you could pick up a Phyrexian Altar, which will mill everyone out with Gravecrawler+ any other zombie. I believe it's about $20 for an UMA one. You could also pick up some fetches like Polluted Delta and the less expensive ones that are half fetches in Bloodstained Mire and Flooded Strand. Those are fairly reasonably priced and they can help you with consistency. Or you could blow it all on a Vampiric Tutor.
I'm not a huge fun of Endless Ranks of the Dead or Open the Graves. They are both 5 mana do-nothing enchantments that put a target on you before you've gotten much of any value.
