yo! So to start, I can trade Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Eldrazi Temple, Birds of Paradise, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Day's Undoing, which adds up to about $40. Looks like uro is $45 on tcg mid. I'd like to hold onto eldrazi conscription, c sphinx and breeding pool if possible because they are in decks right now. Anything else in the $5 range work for you?

TriusMalarky on Why Have There Been So ...

The thing is it's repeatable. Arcanis the Omnipotent is a solid card in EDH(too high CMC for anything else) because it's repeatable Ancestral Recall.

Now, Recall's good on it's own -- but look at effects like Firebreathing(: this creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn). The fact that you can do it over and over again makes it absolutely amazing.

Anything that can be repeated multiple times per turn at only a cost of mana is really good. I mean, imagine Circle of Protection: Red against Burn. You play it t2 and then t3 forward you can prevent damage from 3 sources each turn, eventually growing to the point where Burn just can't ever kill you. The problem is it's only good against red cards. You'd have to run Enlightened Tutor in a mono-white prison deck in a format without FoN or FoW to be able to make Circles halfway good, and even then you can just run Runed Halo and not have to be worried about extra mana or specific colors.

Dark Ritual, Sinkhole, Snuff Out, Bojuka Bog, and Songs of the Damned immediately strike me as more powerful or game-warping.

Pestilence is a strong engine, which hates on creature-based strategies, while that is okay, it is so slow and useless against non-creature-based decks that only Pauper lets it see play, with obviously some players running any card in commander.

Modern and Legacy have used singleton, tutorable copies of Bojuka Bog in many lists, Snuff Out is better in Legacy and Commander, Sinkhole is better and more Iconic, while Dark Ritual is much, much better, sees consistent Pauper, Legacy, and Vintage play in Ad Nauseam, Doomsday, and a plurality of other storm/combo decks, and is one of the most famous cards to date.

While yes, it doesn't last long, nor does Black Lotus, or Ancestral Recall, but that doesn't make Gilded Lotus or Arcanis the Omnipotent any better as cards. They are much, much worse in the vast majority of circumstances.

If you want a powerful janky pauper black engine, Songs of the Damned is another card that you may like, being a card used in the mono-black cycling storm decks going around.

I like it.

My only comment is that Arcanis the Omnipotent goes infinite with Mind Over Matter, which with Thassa's Oracle is a wincon.

Ok, I've read it now.

I'd choose Treachery over Control Magic. It costs one more, but allows for extra casting, especially when you have activate conditions that cause your lands to produce extra mana (which you have a few of).

For the same reason, I would try to include Snap and Frantic Search, though I'm not sure what you'd cut for them.

And as goblinguiderevealpls noted, Temple Bell goes infinite with Mind Over Matter. So Does Arcanis the Omnipotent.

That's all I got.
