Trainyaj on Dimir Artifact-walkers

You should build a full sideboard of 1-off artifacts if you plan to use Karn, the Great Creator and you should sub out some shocks and swamps to play 4 Interplanar Beacon as the only black you run are planeswalkers. A list of sideboard artifacts are as follows Arcane Encyclopedia – card draw for control, Explosive Apparatus – Bad removal, Navigator's Compass – life gain, Damping Sphere – Anti Izzet phoenix, Fountain of Renewal – Burn, Sorcerous Spyglass – Walkers, Helm of the Host – maybe ok? Magistrate's Scepter – control beater, Meteor Golem – good but expensive removal, Orazca Relic – versatile, Sentinel Totem – graveyard hate, Silent Gravestone – graveyard hate, Skyscanner – replaceable blocker, The Immortal Sun – win-con, Transmogrifying Wand – repeatable removal, Treasure Map  Flip card advantage. Please look at and comment my deck when you have time.

No removal = win

-2 Mountain -1 Arcane Encyclopedia -4 Trumpet Blast +3 Skirk Prospector +4 The Flame of Keld . Reasons Skirk Prospector are just Mountain that ramp. Arcane Encyclopedia is just bad. 6 mana draw a card and 9 mana draw 2 cards are both unplayable. Use The Flame of Keld as a combo Trumpet Blast and Arcane Encyclopedia . Please comment on my mono-green stompy list.

Velverthex on Need advice on card draw ...

Hello, I am also trying to make a deck with Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Raff. So far I have been looking into some drawing options. I think instants that draw you cards are usually best suited to the playstile of the deck, kind of like Pull from Tomorrow , Sphinx's Revelation , Frantic Search and Catalog . You can cast them before your turn if your opponents did not make you cast anything or you can play them earlier in the game to improve your options.

I think that Urza’s Tome could be a better substitute than Treasure Trove since you can flash it in with Raff and it costs less to activate the effect. The only drawback is you have to tap it. Arcane Encyclopedia works pretty much the same way but costs more to play

I like the deck concept really cool looking deck here are some cards that could help I run a few of these in some of my decks

Lifecrafter's Bestiary , The Immortal Sun is nice but it has doubled in price to $20 I was lucky got mine for $8 then pulled one on a random pack i bought to support the store I play FNM.

Land fetch sword when you attack can help Sword of the Animist or cheaper option at upkeep Into the Wilds

Arcane Encyclopedia if you want somethign to go with your kicker theme Illuminate

Land that you can draw with Arch of Orazca then there is one that lets you shuffle your library Madblind Mountain

Fungal Plots if you do not care about graveyard everyone gets extra Rites of Flourishing

There are some other ones but that is the major ones i can think off

What do you find yourself wanting to return most of the time with Recollect ? You may want to consider The Mirari Conjecture if it's mainly instants/sorceries. You might also consider dropping Arcane Encyclopedia for more copies of Search for Azcanta  Flip since it's such a clutch early game play, and scales even better into lategame.
