Arcane Adaptation

Arcane Adaptation


As Arcane Adaptation enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creatures you control are the chosen type in addition to their other types. The same is true for creature spells you control and creature cards you own that aren't on the battlefield.

Nice brew! A combo to think about Bishop of Wings + Arcane Adaptation (naming angels) + Kykar, Wind's Fury.

At six mana, you’re looking for a deck that has ramp, card draw to get the Storm, and all the biggest baddest zombies in the game. Moreover, you can combo it with Arcane Adaptation to spit out the biggest creatures regardless of type, namely big Eldrazi. I wanted to build a true zombie tribal deck that highlighted the creature type rather than abuse type changing for non-zombie combos.

Annexus hey! Yeah determining what should be cut is tough.

My last thought (I promise) is Arcane Adaptation... where you can change all creatures in your deck to Moonfolk. So scrap the changeling idea and just put that in and all your other non-moonfolk will change accordingly!

i'm relying on just Arcane Adaptation for now, so hard to fit it all in

Although you do have access to Conspiracy, Xenograft and Arcane Adaptation as long as Dimir is within your color pallet.

It's not the best, but it's something.

What do you guys think about Mythos of Brokkos?

I'm thinking of substitute Bring to Light for it, both of then have issues, bring don't get Arcane Adaptation neither a kicked Rite of Replication and Mythos of Brokkos don't get Rite of Replication.

The two of then works really well alone and have utility for the deck.

Another addition to the list is the Eerie Ultimatum replacing March from the Tomb, the problem is that it costs 2 dollars.

I need you to get to a conclusion.

Yesterday, nice! I was thinking about Inky, but worried about losing my board to a target removal spell. The same might be for the Golem... But, maybe some target hexproof spells would solve that? hmmm I'm liking this.

Good call on Xenograft. I also got the slightly newer Arcane Adaptation in here.
