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.

You need discard outlet, if you want to really use Drake Haven/Astral Slide/Faith of the Devoted effectively, you need ways to easily enable draw, discard, or cycle, and enable you to save your cards. You can either use Cycling with Abandoned Sarcophagus or you can use Forgotten Creation/Library of Leng to constantly sift your hand, while triggering discard effects. You can then toss in Alhammarret's Archive to help the draw.

Basically, if you want to run Astral Slide, you need to be able to reliably trigger its effects, and that means you need ways to be able to draw/discard/cycle on command. Also, think about Archmage Ascension since then you can tutor for ANYTHING once you've drawn enough.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa let's you draw a card whenever you play a planeswalker. Just to be funny I have it and Archmage Ascension, so whenever I have Tamiyo, Field Researcher's emblem, I freecast all of my planeswalkers, oaths and The Chain Veil

Archmage Ascension has tested too slowly for me - do you like it? Or maybe Price of Knowledge?

Seeing as Your stuff responds to having cards in hand rather than the act of drawing, I'd add Archmage Ascension since you'll be able to bring it online with relative ease

Swapped out Trophy Mage for Chromatic Lantern. Also swapped out Archmage Ascension for Burnished Hart. I need more ramp and I don't think Archmage Ascension will ever produce anything valuable. Blighted Cataract and all three deserts are swapped out for 4 islands and Tolaria West. Eventually I'll have more utility lands so I want tolaria in there ahead of time.
