Academy Rector

Creature — Human Cleric

When Academy Rector is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may exile it. If you do, search your library for an enchantment card, put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

I really like how there is now a white equivalent of Morphling, Torchling, and Thornling: brightling. Hopefully, there shall eventually be a black equivalent, to complete the cycle.

With the printing of arena rector, a reference to Academy Rector, will there eventually be equivalents that search for artifacts, creatures, and lands?

How is fan favorite black? Black is the least cooperative and most selfish of all the colors, so I believe that it should be either red, white, or green, the colors of community and cooperation.

needs some more mana rocks: Coalition Relic, Worn Powerstone, Commander's Sphere and Fellwar Stone should do the trick.

Should be running Past in Flames and Braid of Fire.

might want Humble Defector for card draw, and if you are going the "i win cuz i have high life total kek" route, I might add Academy Rector and Test of Endurance.

spicy idea: could run Galvanoth.

Love the stuffy doll idea.

Some more spoilers:

Virtaz's Vritue

Virtaz's Virtue


For each player, choose friend or foe. Each friend returns a creature card from their graveyard to their hand. Each foe sacrifices a creature.

This card is funny, but I don't think it's all that playable:

Arena Rector

You're more limited by there not being any really obscene planeswalkers (vs. Academy Rector which grabs Omniscience or Yawgmoth's Bargain). About the most broken thing you can get is Garruk, Apex Predator or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

This is also interesting:

Game Plan

It's a solid EDH card because players that are behind will help you cast it. It's not completely unplayable in 2HG, either, since you and your teammate can each play 3 mana to help cast it, meaning you can cast it early on. It's especially powerful if your team was able to dump most of the cards out of their hands first and letting the other team only draw 3 or 4 cards.

It also feels like there's better reprints than Iconic Masters lol:

I've been trying to make a Flash deck with both Protean Hulk and Academy Rector.. like a cross between 5 color omni and 5 color protean decks.

This adds a whole new element with many different lines!

I am not merrowMania, but I am not dead either (I have been off quite a bit, I was finishing my studies, now I am back my dudes), here is a spoiler from today I find quite interesting:

Mmmmmm... I wonder which decks this could go in. I mean... It could tutor something like a Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Jace, the Mind Sculptor or any planeswalker that can be included in a W/x deck, even if there are not a lot. For sure, this is a tad less strong than Academy Rector, but getting a planeswalker out from the deck so easily... I am leaning towards Ugin, the Spirit Dragon since I have won a lot of games where I was able to get him -> exile the board. I am not sure about the shell that would like to do this, maybe in somehting like Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, but I am pretty sure this could find a home.

** EDIT **

What about a nice Flash deck that aims to either go Flash -> Academy Rector -> Omniscience or Flash -> Arena Rector -> Ugin, the Spirit Dragon? I would totally play this in a stax/control shell with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV at the helm. What are your thoughts?

griffstick thanks for the upvote and kind words! :)

Daedalus19876 thanks for coming! Cute and unusual was exactly what I was going for here haha! Just a fun jank brew.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Ones I want to mention: Academy Rector is $80... but this is just s theoretical deck so maybe... xD

Forgot about Pia's Revolution! Sweet! Semblance Anvil seems really good too!

Didn't want this to become a Paradox Engine deck. I don't even know what I want this deck to become haha! Thanks for the help!

budlaorf Glad to see you added Replenish. I really think Academy Rector needs a spot especially if your going for the Combo Wombo. I also still think maybe a 1 off of Privileged Position(since you're mainly white).

I also forgot about Opalescence. Seems like it would be really good here just to finish them off. And if you get hit with a Back to Nature or the likes, you just replenish and call it a day lol

LuxCannonator- Thank you for the suggestions. I have added Replenish to the sideboard and may consider adding Academy Rector in the future.

I don't really want to add another color to this deck, but if I did, I would try and create some play between Enchanted Evening and Calming Verse. You'd create a one sided permanent wipe for all of your opponents.

I have decided to remove Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and test out a possible endless turn loop with Second Chance+Sun Titan. When you are at 5 or less life, you can keep sacrificing Second Chance for extra turns and attacking with Sun Titan to bring it right back again.
