Explorer's Scope

Artifact — Equipment

Whenever equipped creature attacks, look at the top card of your library. If it's a land card, you may put it onto the battlefield tapped.

Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)

Explorer's Scope Discussion

Mj3913 on What CMDR do you think ...

Viscera Seer : if perhaps you include a recursion/token package.

Darksteel Pendant : Indestructible is handy.

Shadows of the Past : mana sink, scry each death.

Bontu the Glorified : again, requires things to sac, and a mana sink.

Catacomb Sifter : death triggers.

Crystal Ball : digs 2 deep.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary : still works for casting as it doesn't say 'from hand'.

Reaper of the Wilds : returns attacks via deathtouch, and on death scry triggers.

Nissa's Revelation : could be fun depending on how many critters you have in it.

Price of Fame : Cheap commander removal.

Doom Whisperer : Flample, pay to see cards.

Explorer's Scope : ramp, and land off the top. Combined with other things you can plan around it.

Mirri's Guile : rearranges top 3. Might be outside your budget though.

Sensei's Divining Top : Guile in artifact form, again pricey.

Cream of the Crop : could be interesting, creature dependant.

Grim Flayer : not sure if good, you'll have to decide.

Scroll Rack : another pricey card but it sets things up.

Gilt-Leaf Seer : rearrange top 2.

Vizier of the Menagerie : Pretty handy if you've got a fair bit of critters.

Galvanoth : While not top manipulation, it can be pretty spicy with other top deck stuff.

Riddle of Lightning : depending on how high your curve goes it could work.

Explorer's Scope or Adventuring Gear could work really well here. Great deck!

Please check out my new deck, Sandstorm: A New Tier 1 Possibility. I would really appreciate it.

I noticed you don't have any library manipulation. Not trying to line up your draws?

Ronin Warclub is another auto equip. just thought it sounded fun summon your commander and boom here comes all the auto equip attach and then burn for good dammage. It's just hard to find the room.

Looter il-Kor is a good creature I don't see in your deck.

Cavern Harpy Is really good I cant recommend her more. Can keep her safe for 1 life and keeps returning a ninja to your hand

Have you tried Explorer's Scope before? decent cheap card that helps you not hit land. I'm going to test it.

Thank you usaDiabetic, I appreciate both your honesty and humor!

If you browse my decks, you will notice I never play any signets, and also that ramping seems to be the one aspect of decks that I always neglect in favor of aggression and control. I guess I'm greedy that way. It does sound like a good idea to have a bit of a booster, I'll ponder and see if it is signets or something else.

I hate playing against Skullclamp, it is another card I never played myself. I may try it if only to surprise my friends, it would be really funny.

You are correct about Mathas, I wanted to give him a chance to shine but he never really did anything. Twilight's Call is going to give way to Patriarch's Bidding as soon as I get one (soon). Also to be acquired and added is Reconnaissance, which is just ridiculous in here.

As for Vampire Nocturnus, 73% of my spells have black in them, it has been working well so far. He would be better with a Top or a Scroll Rack, I used to play Explorer's Scope in Vampires that works too, but I can't find room here for one of those.

Feel free to comment some more, I have started looking at your other deck too, I like your style.

I like what I see so far. The land count seems right. I see many staples that I'd like to see. I'd like to see Path of Ancestry, Darksteel Pendant, Reclaim, Entourage of Trest, Mutant's Prey, Hunt the Weak, the two green cycle lands, Explorer's Scope, Village Elder, Crown-Hunter Hireling.

To make room I would look at the following to take out: Sizzle, Welder Automaton, Wrap in Vigor, Withstand Death, Blinding Fog, Jolrael's Favor, Nature's Panoply, Might Beyond Reason, Saddleback Lagac, Dragonscale Boon.

It's always nice to see new faces in our community :) Welcome!

drop Explorer's Scope and Herald's Horn for Sword of the Animist

drop Revitalize and maybe Entreat the Angels since it isn't super reliable to miracle unless you control your topdeck.

Serra's Blessing can be Angelic Field Marshal or Brave the Sands or dropped completely

Gleam of Battle is a little too expensive for what it does imo.

Indomitable Archangel doesn't seem on theme, usually used in decks to protect wombo artifice pieces
