Alhammarret's Archive

Legendary Artifact

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

Alhammarret's Archive works really well in my Oloro, maybe it will in yours? Also Beacon of Immortality

It's a good start, but I see some room for improvement. Some suggestions:

Erebos, God of the Dead : for card draw, life gain denial and a beefy indestructible blocker.

Tree of Perdition : Beefy blocker, could be a win-con and become a much bigger blocker.

Test of Endurance : Straight up win-con.

Archangel of Thune: Pumps up all your creatures when you gain life and has lifelink. Almost a win-con by itself.

Serra Ascendant: Immediately a 6/6 Lifelink flyer when you put em down, and can be a win-con early enough in the game.

Ordeal of Heliod: Puts counters on your creatures, gains you 10 life and since you're already running Sun Titan, has recursion.

True Conviction : Doublestrike and lifelink to all your creatures. Nuff Said.

Approach of the Second Sun: Gains you life and is an looming win-con that will have your opponents counting cards.

Treasury Thrull: Extort and has the ability to recur from your graveyard.

Righteous Confluence : A versatile options card, bare minimum, you gain 15 life for 5 mana.

Alhammarret's Archive : Double life gain and card draw...why not?

Elixir of Immortality : Your backup panic button if things go south. 5 life and rescue your graveyard.

Chalice of Life  Flip : Gain life on one side, 5 to opponents on the other.

Vault of the Archangel : A backup means to gain life and possibly gain control of board state. Also shows if your opponents are paying attention to all of your board state.

As far as swaps go:

Fumigate to replace Day of Reckoning it may be benefit you more to have a clean slate and gain life. Necromantic Selection may also be a good choice here too.

Gift of Immortality to replace Indestructibility -- I like Gift better as it works really well with ETB triggers, especially if it's life gain related and works great with...

Panharmonicon : A card I have really been enjoying since it's release. Works great with stuff like your Sun Titan, and Ashen Rider, or Angel of Despair. Also pairs really nicely with Mimic Vat if you got room.

Just some ideas from my experience play ultra life gain. Have fun!

I'm actually thinking of replacing Haunted Cloak, but the Haste / Trample are generally very useful. I might replace it with Trailblazer's Boots to add to my Prowler's Helm, which works amazing because literally nobody plays walls (with the exception of that blasted Mutavault). Whispersilk Cloak is very nice but I don't like the Shroud on it which blocks my Chandra's Ignition, Arcbond, or Shelter for example.

Rhox Faithmender is difficult. On the one hand he looks great because double life yay! The thing is, I really don't need more Life. I could use it more often maybe, but double the life only makes me more of a target. Alhammarret's Archive does the same, but I can easily get ~100+ Life without it. I will see how things go with Ad Nauseam in play, perhaps adding Rhox will be more practical then.

Don't underestimate Killing Wave haha! I usually cast it for 10+ and it works really well, if they do pay the life to keep a creature you can just swing with Licia (which we can keep because Life doesn't matter as I tend to keep between 50-100 Life and Licia gets it back for me anyway). So far, it's done everything I wanted it to do.

Grasp of Fate looks pretty good. Death Grasp would be amazing if it hit all opponents, but I recently re-added Lightning Helix and Warleader's Helix and this might fit in as well.

Any thoughts on using Alhammarret's Archive as a wincon? I have a lot more card draw in my deck but casting a Thirst for Knowledge and drawing 6 cards and discarding an artifact usually wins games.

Thanks blargin for the recommendation! Im going to try replacing Teferi's Puzzle Box with Alhammarret's Archive and maybe sideboard Laboratory Maniac as a secondary wincon against leylines.

Card-draw is vital in EDH and nearly impossible in Boros colors. Reforge the Soul is one of the best red card-draw spells that isn't Wheel of Fortune. I like Outpost Siege a lot. Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, Faithless Looting, and Wild Guess are decent. Better with graveyard recursion or extra draw Alhammarret's Archive) but that's Red for ya.

Pursuit of Knowledge isn't too good. Neither is Armistice. I can't think of or find any others but trust me, White is barren for card draw.

Mind's Eye is one of the best colorless options but it's expensive. Staff of Nin isn't too bad. I love Farsight Mask. Perhaps Infiltration Lens and Rogue's Gloves? Most of the rest help you opponents, like Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Font of Mythos, etc.

What about Alhammarret's Archive? If all your legends are cantrips with Reki then why not double it?

It'd make it twice as fast to find your non legend combo pieces.
