Lantern of Insight Discussion

legendofa on A few questions about Dominaria

4 days ago

I'm not sure if this goes in Rules Questions or Spoilers, Rumors, and Speculation, but I had to choose one.

Are all artifacts equally historic? Do Lantern of Insight or Etherium Sculptor count as historic? More than anything else, this seems like a question of odd flavor if they do. I think they do, but I want to confirm before I start messing around.

If the words "mana pool" are taken out, will that affect cards like Kruphix, God of Horizons?

Again, I'm sure the answer is yes, but I want to confirm this. Sagas count as permanents with counters for cards like Ferropede and Vampire Hexmage, right?

xyr0s on Grindclock Prison Deck Suggestions?

It's a really inefficient way to remove creatures, puttingthem on top of library, and then milling them. First, most of the cards then send a creature to top of library have higher casting cost than removal spells. I guess it's to avoid prison decks, that keep making you draw the same, useless card over and over.

Second, if you don't leave the card on top of the library, you might as well just have killed it from the start.

Third, it's a pretty poor lock, since you can't stop your opponent drawing and playing a new creature. Unless you play Lantern of Insight... and a few more mill artifacts like Codex Shredder to get rid of really dangerous cards from the top of library... and maybe Ensnaring Bridge to stop attackers.

Lantern of Insight, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Pyxis of Pandemonium, Anchor to the Aether, and Guiding Spirit to manipulate the top card. Actually, that's really only a few. Pretty much my whole is about making sure Daxos gets something good. I'll just include a link in case you want to check out the list.

Cool build!

Maybe also a Courser of Kruphix, Sylvan Library, Lantern of Insight, and/or a Sensei's Divining Top to manipulate your library?

Happy brewing!

Lantern of Insight works well with your Codex Shredder not to mention it allows you to control more of what the opponent is drawing.

Do you think Dakra Mystic could fit? It is pretty similar to Lantern of Insight, and could be a decent backup.

Lantern of Insight is my go to suggestion, but also you could look into manipulating the libraries of your opponents through cards like Ghoulcaller's Bell or Codex Shredder.

Or, you can go whole hog on stealing and play Mindclaw Shaman-esque cards too?

Thank you for the suggestions!

So yeah mill should be the main play, with that I should be able to cut down on artifacts alot and make more room. Also I had an odd idea if you didn't see it in the description: should I make this deck like lantern control with cards such as Lantern of Insight? Or is that to gimmicky?
