Archetype of Imagination Discussion

TKDbeast on The Birds (1963)

3 days ago

Nice deck! I like the Storm Crow include there, and I love the movie The Birds.

I was wondering why you didn't include Magus of the Moat or Archetype of Imagination. They're really great for decks built around flying.

I'd also like to recommend trying on Coveted Peacock and Messenger Jays if you're into political play, or your playgroup doesn't have a grouphug deck.

In addition, I'd highly recommend getting some card draw and counterspells in there. Blue and White has a lot of control cards in it, so take advantage of those too. I'm not saying to go full-on Stax, but a little bit of removal and whatnot is always healthy for any deck.

Thanks for posting!

DudelRok on This Infinite Turns? Worth it ...

5 days ago

1) Cast Wanderwine Prophets leaving a way to make 2 mana (but not at once).

2) Wanderwine Prophets ETB, Champion trigger a different merfolk.

3) Commander trigger, pay one, make token copy of Wanderwine Prophets.

4) Token copy ETB trigger, champion, exiling the original non-token.

5) Swing with token, assuming it has some variation of unblockable. (Archetype of Imagination as an example.)

6) EoT trigger, Token exiles itself, non-token Wanderwine Prophets etb.

7) Champion and pay 1, creating a token that doesn't get exiled until the -beginning- of your next end step (your extra turn).

8) Repeat

Perpetual on Arcades Games *$50 Budget Enchantress*

When I see an 8CMC card like Sandwurm Convergence, my first thoughts are to compare it to borderline win cons like Insurrection or an overloaded Cyclonic Rift. The Convergence is not going to give you that kind of power, so I would cut it. There are plenty of cards in your maybeboard you could swap in, or maybe you could go for Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Imagination, or (following the advice of gonki regarding Vigilance) Oathsworn Giant.

Findlesticks on Atraxa infect EDH

Looks pretty neat! My friend used to run Steady Progress in his infect deck, didn't git his too well but might be worth considering. Contagion Engine and Contagion Clasp are great in my Atraxa EDH.

You might have some problems getting damage in, especially late-game, since your creatures are mostly quite small. Maybe something like Archetype of Imagination or Venser, the Sojourner could solve that?

I dont fink you have enough instinies for deh Pristine Skywise flap flap, but consideer it. Alshow, I fink dat Judge's Familiar is a gud flap flap for deh counties. Another counties flaper is Spell Queller and despite areythang, its counties are usually unmatched. Lyev Skyknight is gud for all deh flap flap haters who can get a time out in der prisons and yer dont has to pay alot for im either. For ULTIMATE flapitude, consid-er deh Archetype of Imagination because you know wat deh say, "live by the flap flap but dont die by the flap flap because we love them too much for dat".

GoodLuckGuy on [Kaseto, Orochi Archmage] Snake Tribal / Voltron

1 month ago

Every Kaseto deck should be running Berserk, it lets you kill an opponent out of nowhere and can double as removal.

Stoneforge Masterwork can end games quickly when equipped to your commander, but is also amazing on anything when your field is big. Illusionist's Bracers is similarly amazing with Kaseto. Lightning Greaves let's you surprise your opponents while protecting your most important threats.

Here are some snakes I recommend: Sakura-Tribe Scout (good T1 ramp option), Skullwinder (amazing politics card), Nemesis of Mortals (cheap value snake in the late game).

I'd suggest getting rid of: Archetype of Imagination (I don't see a point to this card when Kaseto is your commander), Patron of the Orochi (it's slow and only makes green mana), Time of Need (I don't think tutoring your legends is necessary in this deck).

faultypuppy on Yisan the Library Nerd

soulwarden11 Well there's another card that will have to go in. I also just built my younger brother his first EDH deck running Titania, Protector of Argoth, since he enjoyed playing Yisan so much, and that would kill in his as well. Plus its about 50$ cheaper than Crucible of Worlds which is super nice.Yeah I don't know why I didn't think of low cost legendary creatures... duh. I usually flip stuff into sphinxes, a Tidespout Tyrant, Platinum Angel, or the Stormtide Leviathan and Archetype of Imagination combo. I thought about doing Eldrazis but I know I'll be targeted by everyone the rest of the game. And no kidding haha we seem to have VERY similar playstyles!
