Sweet Oblivion strengthens Dimir self-mill Theros: Beyond Death

Self-mill strategies in Magic: The Gathering continue to expand with Theros: Beyond Death spoilers like Sweet Oblivion. 

Blue Dredge was the self-mill deck of choice following the release of the Throne of Eldraine set. But as Theros: Beyond Death (THB) spoilers continue to drop daily, the possibility of a Dimir self-mill archetype is becoming a reality. 

Here’s a full English translation of Sweet Oblivion: 

  • CMC: 1U.
  • Sorcery.
  • Target player puts the top 4 cards of their library into their graveyard.
  • Escape – 3U, Exile four other cards from your graveyard.

Upon first glance, Sweet Oblivion seems slow. And it is when compared to ELD Merfolk Secretkeeper. But the addition of the Escape mechanic changes how self-mill strategies have been crafted in the past. Sweet Oblivion provides its Escape cost in exiled cards via the four cards it self-milled.
