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.

Vettedog677 on Talrand's refusal

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.

LeaPlath 1. Standstill works for me to, and I'm completely willing to wait and not play cards until the opponent plays cards, and if he doesn't then I can wait. 2. Not trying to be rude, but how is Necromancer unfocused, it's just more flexible, because at best its a 1/1 who can recur my magus, and at worst it's a creature that still could recur my magus. Yeah it could be exiled or it could lose it ability for some reason, but that's just the opponent using removal on something that not even a key part of my deck. 3. I tried Megrim in an earlier build of the deck, but I didn't like it so I just removed it. 4. The only thing i'm unsure about is the Archmage Ascension and Blustersquall but they are temporary

Ok, my comment got destroyed, sorry. Lemme try that again. You should run Archive Trap no matter what, maybe splash back for Glimpse the Unthinkable , Dimir Doppelganger , Nemesis of Reason , Oona, Queen of the Fae . Mind Funeral

Also maybe: Drowner Initiate Archmage Ascension Forced Fruition Howling Mine treasure hunt

Cards to take out:

Indentured Djinn while the logic is solid behind choosing him, he's each opponent "May" draw, allows them to opt out of the 3+ damage

Duskmantle Seer fit's the flavor, but isn't actually a draw which could easily net you less damage across the board.

Returned Phalanx this card takes up space for no real good reason

Trade Secrets is illegal in the commander/edh format

Swamp/Island/Mountain you have way too many lands in this deck you could probably run 10 less land and still be A-okay, obviously you should playtest it and tweak it accordingly.

Cards to consider:

Arjun, the Shifting Flame my friend runs this guy in a red/blue locust god EDH it forces all sorts of draw on everyone.

Graceful Adept living Spellbook/Reliquary Tower

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Later game nets you heavy amounts of draw and makes your opponents lose any card advantage you might give them.

Stormbreath Dragon with the amount of cards you should be forcing your opponents to draw his monstrous will be devastating

Sturmgeist you're going to have a fair deal of cards yourself

The Locust God tokens for days.

Viseling hand sizes will easily be 4+ damage will be dealt.

Howling Mine forces draw

Font of Mythos forces more draw

Archmage Ascension why draw cards like a plebeian when you could tutor all the cards?

Fevered Visions essentially 2 damage a turn every turn.

Forced Fruition easy 7+ damage

Price of Knowledge Damage for days

Underworld Dreams it's like have 2 nekusar

Well of Ideas All the draw.

Thanks, somewhatclever! Rhystic Study didn't cross my mind. That would be a great addition. Archmage Ascension is one of my favorite cards, though I'm not sure it will be so effective here. I will definitely have to give it a shot though. Thanks!
