If you would gain life, you gain twice that much life instead.
If you would draw a card except the first one you draw in each of your draw steps, draw two cards instead.
Alhammarret's Archive Discussion

I've never before considered Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he will get added.
I'll try out Skullclamp .
I see your point on Dictate of Heliod . While it's fun, it doesn't really do much.
I'll try taking out Dreamstone Hedron for some cheaper ramp.
I like Staff of the Sun Magus , but with the cards you have suggested to me, I'll take it out.
I like Archangel of Tithes because it's an Angel and it has high Devotion, so I won't be taking that out.
I'm not sure about my LGS's current meta, so I'll be keeping Angel of Jubilation for now.
Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.
I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.
Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.
Emancipation Angel is going in.
I don't like Mind's Eye because I think it's too expensive for what it does.
I'm not a big fan of Dusk because it will kill most of my guys.

The 'when' was a holdover that I forgot to change. It's the rest of the example that matters. So,
- "If a player searches their library, they can only find cards from the top four cards of that library."
The confusion is because Aven Mindcensor uses standard replacement effect wording that state you replace the regular search with searching a different selection of cards. It outright says that you're replacing searching your library with a different action.
Some replacement effects do replace an action with something else that includes that action ( Alhammarret's Archive , Mox Diamond ), but it's clear on those cards because they say exactly that on the card.
You are still searching, yes, but searching isn't unique to libraries, which is why this is so unclear to me. We've been able to search hands and graveyards with spells like Cranial Extraction which have existed since before Aven Mindcensor was first printed.

I'd highly suggest to remove Bontu's Monument , as for 3 mana you get only half the effect, highly inefficient.

DragonLordJippy 3 mana into the first card definitely feels pretty bad, it feels like a card you want to play first main phase/the turn before you go off, which I know in the video you counted against Alhammarret's Archive . Hopefully for 2 mana investment we get a better return here. Let me know how the testing goes!

multimedia dude thanks so much, you've given me so much to work with.
I'll definitely be finding a spot for alot of these cards.
I'm curious about your opinion on cutting Utter End . Is it because of the CMC or do you see removal as not super important in this build because it should be more concerned about what it's trying to do instead of my opponents?
And is Zombie Apocalypse CMC too high? Even though it most likely only benefits us?
Thank you so much for all this insight man, I appreciate it so much!

Couple boring admin stuff:
First, if you have questions about how rules, cards, or card interactions work, please use the Rules Q&A section--that section has some added functionalities, such as the ability to "Mark as Answer" a post to indicate your question has been resolved. I have gone ahead and moved the thread for you.
Also, please remember to link all cards in your question using double brackets, like so:
[[Celestial Mantle]], [[Alhammarret's Archive]]
Joe_Ken_ is correct, but I wanted to clear up a bit why this is the correct answer.
Celestial Mantle has a triggered ability. Triggered abilities involve a certain events happening (indicated by "when", "whenever", or "at), and that event bringing about a certain action. Here, the event is the enchanted creature dealing combat damage to a player, and the action is doubling the controller's life.
Alhammarret's Archive is a replacement effect--this means if you are going to do something, "instead" you do something else.
So, Celestial Mantle would normally double your life, causing you to gain life = your life total. So, if you have 20 life, you would gain 20 life. Alhammarret's Archive has a replacement effect, modifying how you gain life--the replacement effect would cause you to gain 40 life instead. As such, you would end with 60 life.

Creature deals damage with celestial mantle on it while you are at 20 life. You would gain 20 from the mantle, but with archive out it doubles what you gain so you really get 40 life instead.
Pretty much it isn’t a double then double again, it just double what you would always add on.
