Vara's Mill

Standard Deck By


Cost Curve




Deck I'm running in low masters atm. The idea is to deck them and stall as long as possible while you dig for deathcaps/solitudes. Varas can be used extremely situationly. Need a face aegis popped or one on a unit? Done. The board should stay clear while you dig/mill amd she also covers health gain.

So far vara had also won me games as a back up beater protocted unseal/rindras choice.

I tried with a shadow market(and every other color combo with mill) with 1 solitude in there but in the end every other color left some other aspect of the deck open to punishment.

Runs well agaisnt anything really as long you keep good hands and find your answers to the current situation.

Hope some one enjoys it and please any changes you suggest will be welcomed and tested asap! Enjoy!

Edit: swapped some cards around. Hailstorm in the market in place of unseal and the fetch spell spell for transform into piggy spell.

Nice Job Diaboloee85! I've been wanting to play a mill deck. This has been both fun and effective so far. I appreciate you sharing it.
Diablolee85 Eternal Version: 1.42.2
Aye, I'm just happy you are enjoying it!
I have recently started running 2 ermot in the main dropping 1 vara. Really funny when you deck a unitless control deck with one ermot swing >:)....I'm slightly evil

I'm experimenting with replacing the 4 sabotages for 4 messenger hawks to speed up the mill and give me the ability to duplicate any cards I need situationally.
Diablolee85 Eternal Version: 1.42.2
Sounds interesting. Ill do the same, though im going to cut 1 ermot and 2 sabs for 3 hawks. Thank you for the idea!

What do you usually look for in your first hand? When do you redraw for the first, and for the second time? Also, what do you think about manacles?
Diablolee85 Eternal Version: 1.42.2
Also, a few dark returns can be cut for something like Burglerize for the top end relics and any Avigraft youre not able to counter

Hello, thank you for the interest!
For opening hands I generally look for anything that can help me control the early game IE: Permafrost, hailstorms, rindras choice, sabotage and card draw. Don't be afraid to mull to 6 cards, won a good bit that way.
As for manacles, I tried a couple a versions with it but between needing card draw and control it was just too slow.

Biggest issue i run into is not drawing enough power/influence at the start of the match which normally ends in a loss. Thank you again for youre interest in the deck and hope this helps! Good luck on the mill train!

Finally I get to see this deck! This looks like exactly what I expect from mill! Next craft-solitude!
