Archmage Ascension


At the beginning of each end step, if you drew two or more cards this turn, you may put a quest counter on Archmage Ascension.

As long as Archmage Ascension has six or more quest counters on it, if you would draw a card, you may instead search your library for a card, put that card into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Don't get put down by the fact that everything has to be historic. Here are some useful draw engines and cards that go well with them:

This deck needs a lot more ways to draw cards. Fathom Mage , Give / Take , and Archmage Ascension go great in this deck for starters.

Neat concept! Not sure if Muldrotha, the Gravetide merits the spot of commander, though, given the amount of non-permanents you have. I would've chosen the partner combo of Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept (putting in some more artifacts like Psychosis Crawler and Hedron Archive ).

Here's some cards that'll boost your drawing power:

Hey KayneMarco thanks so much for your suggestions! (sorry I took so long to reply!)

I love Deadeye Navigator as a card but my concern is that it only synergizes with Deepglow Skate and Djeru, With Eyes Open and isn't very useful other than that. What do you think?

I can't argue with Captain Sisay I'll try and get a hold of her!

Archmage Ascension is interesting. I'll see what I can do!

Circle of Despair is incredible! I had no idea! That's exactly the kind of effect I've been looking for, I'll make fit it in somehow!

Do you have any suggestions on what I could remove?

Deadeye Navigator is great in here when paired with your deepglow skate. Captain Sisay can find any walker you want. Archmage Ascension is great with Atraxa’s ability. Also look at the possibility of using more walkers that produce token creatures for blockers or fodder for Circle of Despair which will protect the walkers. Current errata for the card says any target.

I’m truly surprised I don’t see Archmage Ascension in most atraxa decks on this site. I run it in my supertroopers deck and it is awesome in it. Surprised I ain’t seeing Oath of Gideon in here. Despite a suggestion I saw further up the thread I think you should keep at least your Pir, Imaginative Rascal in the deck. Toothy could go though. For protecting your walkers, think bout these fog effect cards:

And Circle of Despair is a good protection card as well. It does work for walkers. You can check gatherer on that one.
