Arcane Spyglass Discussion

ersatz_olorin on Does This Have Potential

That makes sense, there are several ways I could go with this.

  1. If I wanted to be cute I could take advantage of Landfall triggers from two lands re-entering the battlefield every turn, if I did that I would have to include some land sacrifice like Aggressive Mining (this particular card would add a color but you get the idea). Arcane Spyglass would interact with Power Conduit, so that may be a possibility. Aura Fracture would make sure no one was taking advantage of enchantments but me. This could also combo with Glacial Chasm, saccing it every turn then bringing it and another land back from the yard, so you never have to pay the life. Lots of fun options there.

  2. The Gitrog Monster would provide some value, but that's also adding a color.

  3. There's synergy with cards like Constant Mists as well.

btw griffstick this is just an idea that occured to me that I thought might interest some people, I hate land destruction and would probably throttle myself before the other people at the table could get to me :)

vance's blasting cannons , Recycle, Null Profusion, Arch of Orazca, Zameck Guildmage, Sage of Fables, Mindless Automaton, Arcane Spyglass, Etched Oracle, Sphinx of Magosi

Since you're not including repeatable land tutors, why are you including repeatable explore effects? They only ever filter your draws or draw lands. If you are including them, Path of Discovery is another repeatable explore.

I'm not sure what your feelings on the monarch mechanic are, but it could be considered a repeatable form of draw.

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.

Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.

BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!

You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,

Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!
