Description of deck by its author (quoted):
This is a classic mill deck with allot of artifact mana and Aphetto alchemists to replace voltaic keys which can be better than voltaic key, as they do not require mana to use.  Scalpelexis is also dangerous and retraced image has SO many uses it's not even funny ie. mana acceleration.

COMMENTS:  Not exactly the most original deck in the world, but I like the retraced image and Aphetto Alchemist card additions.  Your deck is focuses and very balanced and that is what brought you to second place.  You have a nice mana base with the Thran Dynamos and Basalt Monolith, although I would have replaced Basalt Monolith with Thran Dynamo or Sapphire Medallion.  I would use the Aphetto Alchemist to untap the millstone or grindstone.  All of the cards in your deck work very well together.  An excellent submission.  Thank you for your entry to this month's contest and congratulations on winning second place.
