I'm not convinced mill as an archetype is viable now. CU/be games are fast and it requires more than a few cards that mill 1-3 cards on average to deck your opponent.

I think you're way off base on your evaluation of the whale here. It's value comes in its versatility. It's self discarding in the reanimation deck. It's decent early even outside of that deck to help filter your draws. It's a really annoying finisher for control and ramp decks. I honestly haven't had a chance to even play any M21 cards in my C/U cube, but Waker of Waves is at the very least one of the top three blue finishers we have access to.
Quote from HaccyZ »Haha, I must say all these different ways to boost Alena make me like the card more. I wouldn't cube the card now, but I like the idea. Trumpeting Herd gives +3 mana on the Rebound. Bonesplitter ramps any creature +1. Ephemerate rituals hard.

And how's the update going? :-D
Quote from Purplemurasaki »Waker of Waves is in the same "can't die while this lives" category and it got a pretty lukewarm response since we actually have good blue high end.
