Arcanist's Owl Discussion

ShiltonCDXX on It's So Shriney!

In thinking less shrines themselves as the legendary nature makes additional in hand dead cards. Arcanist's Owl, Narset, Parter of Veils and other ways to dig for the shrines.

Archon of Sun's Grace is a must I think. It feels like this deck would work best in a control shell.

I am very curious about this myself and will probably try a few iterations.

Thank you for commenting!

  1. I am using Plains so I can cast Arcanist's Owl

  2. I am a bit out of my comfort zone here. I am used to desgining EDH decks, and am just trying to get into Standard. I will see what I can do about the lands.

  3. I am running Mana Geode s to provide card selection, mana earlier in the game, and to turn into a 3/3 later with Karn.

  4. What artifacts and creatures do you recommend?

Again, thank you for the comment, Minousmancer

Pharika, Gift of Death

Legendary Enchantment Creature - God


As long as your devotion to green and black is less than seven, Pharika isn't a creature.

As long as you devotion to green and black is seven or more, other creatures you control have hexproof and deathtouch.

5 / 5

Notice that Throne of Eldraine has Esper-colored artifacts & enchantments matter cards ( All That Glitters , Arcanist's Owl , Shambling Suit , Mirrormade , etc.). They're building a light foundation for the enchantment themes of Theros Beyond Death. Create a new mechanic for Theros Beyond Death that is aware of the enchantment meta that's coming.

I have been tinkering with a similar deck. have you tried All That Glitters or Arcanist's Owl ? the owl is a flying body that gets cards and all that glitters shuts out games when you can get it down on any big beater. would recommend dropping the shambling suit for the enchantment as it can effectively double the power any win-con, that and shambling suit doesn't have haste.
