Minamo Scrollkeeper Discussion

Tyrant-Thanatos on Do you have a hand …

Seven. The default "Maximum Hand Size" is seven. What this means is, at the end of your turn, if you have more than seven cards in your hand, you have to discard down to seven.

There are quite a few cards that modify hand size in some way or another. Locust Miser, Minamo Scrollkeeper, Spellbook, etc.

402.2. Each player has a maximum hand size, which is normally seven cards. A player may have any number of cards in his or her hand, but as part of his or her cleanup step, the player must discard excess cards down to the maximum hand size.

I put the followed cards into the sideboard and removed -1 Angelic Renewal and the playset of Auramancer (Feldon's Cane is enough). Afterwards I also removed -1 Bonesplitter now it seems worthless have one at all. Minamo Scrollkeeper have to be added! Thanks Tardigrade_Cain!

I really like the idea of this deck, and I think this deck could be really powerful in pauper (I myself being a huge fan of pauper) I think you should mainboard Library of Leng and add Minamo Scrollkeeper maybe sideboard Echoing Truth Lifelink Bonesplitter and Angelic Renewal I would increase Empyrial Armor by one considering its the focus of your deck. Otherwise I think its a pretty good deck, with a focus thats hard to sideboard against.

Glad to hear you like the deck!

I actually had Arcanis the Omnipotent in an earlier iteration but the 6 mana was too much to reasonably play. After Azami comes out, we need to be using mana for protection as much as possible and tapping out multiple turns in a row is really scary.

Diviner's Wand serves a similar purpose to Docent of Perfection  Flip in that it creates a backup win condition in the event that my combos fail. The reason I prefer the insect is that I don't have to draw the cards on MY turn in order to do use it effectively. Also he makes all my things cantrip super hard. The fact that the wand gets reduced by Stonybrook Banneret and can also tap for a card is definitely a plus though.

Graceful Adept seems decent, though I have to be careful I don't stack too many hand limit removers because they become redundant after you get one. I'd be more likely to consider Minamo Scrollkeeper since it's cheaper with a better body, and with my goal of reducing the curve as much as possible it ought to be possible to play out anything you need to.
