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.

Archmage Ascension Discussion

czarkingrex I am running Mystical Tutor, but I will definitely consider adding Archmage Ascension. As for the other two, while I do think I need more card draw, I don't think these fit the bill. I don't like tapping out for creatures and they are not guaranteed to get through.

My win condition is to either overrun you with cards like Docent of Perfection  Flip or to steal your win condition with Desertion or Guile. Also kicked Rite of Replication can often seal the deal on its own. I've been thinking of adding in a combo, but haven't decided on one I really like

I'm mostly curious about your wincon other than potentially raising a mini-army of drakes and constructs off of your permanents. I feel like, perhaps with something akin to Surrakar Spellblade or Jhessian Thief to put pressure on opponents, you'd have some better survivability. I'm at least surprised not to see Archmage Ascension and Mystical Tutor since it fits your theme so strongly!

If Archmage Ascension is online, it creates a replacement effect anytime you would draw. So each turn, instead of drawing three cards, you can search for three cards, and since you didn't technically draw any cards with Sylvan Library, you don't have to put 2 back or pay life to keep the cards.

I think I found an interesting and confusing synergy.. Since I want to play with these cards in a commander deck, I want to clear up some things i'm confused about.

So since Sylvan Library has you draw cards.. What happens when Archmage Ascension is online? You're technically not drawing cards with archmage online, so can you just fetch 2 cards from sylvan without the "downside"?

Archmage Ascensions first ability has an intervening if clause. It wont trigger at all unless youve already drawn two or more cards by the time the end step begins.

Basically, you go to end step, AA's 'if' clause checks if you have drawn two cards yet, and since you have not, it does not trigger. So Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis do not trigger AA

I have a ruling question about which I have a few doubts, even after reading the rulings in the Gatherer.

If I have an Archmage Ascension and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis (or another card that lets you draw at the beginning of the end step), does the ascension get a counter? or do I have to have drawn 2 cards that turn to even put the trigger on the stack?

Thanks in advance
