  • As cards such as Hell Slash, Slash Charger and Nariel, the Oracle were not restricted or banned in any way (There are no ban or restriction lists in this game), as well as the multiple unique options for Mill decks, running a mill deck is very efficient in this game.
  • The AI player prioritizes creatures with high power, so it is possible to get around it with the Mill strategies listed above as they only involve little or no high-power creatures.
