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.

I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

cdkime on double life gain

1 week ago

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]]

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.

No since with Alhammarret's Archive you double the life you gain from when you gain it would make it happen second. And Celestial mantle doubles your life total so it would work like this.

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.

Pretty much every wheel deck needs Notion Thief . From War of the spark you can also consider Narset, Parter of Veils ! I think Alhammarret's Archive and Teferi's Puzzle Box both are pretty nice too, depending on the powerlevel you're going for. Another nice creature is Chasm Skulker , and seeing as you're going to fill your graveyard up pretty fast, maybe consider Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time or Visions of Beyond ? And also Magus of the Wheel is a card similar to Jace's Archivist

Oh, and I almost forgot! Mizzix's Mastery to cast all those nice and juicy instants/sorceries you discarded for free

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.

Cards to cut:

- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan

A few cards to think about adding:

- Herald of War - (one of) Aegis Angel / Deathless Angel / Angelic Arbiter - Blood Baron of Vizkopa - Greed - Commander's Sphere - Alhammarret's Archive - Comeuppance

Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.
