I have a correction to Boza’s number four:

The copy created by Primal Wellspring is not cast, so any abilities triggered on the cast will not activate. This includes Storm. You will only end up with seven instances of Grapeshot - the original, the copy from Primal Wellspring, and the five copies from Storm.

Rule 702.39a:

Storm is a triggered ability that functions on the stack. “Storm” means “When you cast this spell, copy it for each other spell that was cast before it this turn. If the spell has any targets, you may choose new targets for any of the copies.” (Emphasis added).

Gatherer Ruling for Primal Wellspring dated 9/29/2017:

If a copy is created, you control the copy. That copy is created on the stack, so it’s not “cast.” Abilities that trigger when a player casts a spell won’t trigger. (Emphasis added).

  1. No, splicing a spell just adds its text to the existing spell on the stack.

  2. No, because the copies with storm are simply created on the stack, they are not cast, so neither artifact will trigger.

  3. No, you will get 5 instances of grapeshot (the original + 4 more). If Grapeshot is your next spell, you will get the orginal + 5 more, since your storm count is now 5.

  4. Just original. Primal Wellspring copies spells and storm is a triggered ability. If you cast Grapeshot with Primal Wellspring with storm count 5, you will first get the copy of the original spell with 5 more , then the original spell will resolve and create 5 more copies for a total of 12 grapeshots. Note that copy created by Wellspring is not cast, so it will not increase your storm count.

  5. No, as explained in 1, it simply adds to the text of an existing spell.

Thoughts on Vizier of Tumbling Sands able to untap a permanent for example your Primal Wellspring? And if with Paradox Engine most likely, you would have double wheel effects almost indefinitely as long as you draw a wheel card. Also, I think Leyline of Anticipation would favor this deck to combo faster taking advantage of your opponent's end of turn like casting punish cards at end of your opponent's turn then wheel effects on your turn.

seems pretty obvious to me. both Primal Wellspring have their trigger conditions met, and will resolve unless countered.

Does using 2x Primal Wellspring for a spell, stack? Will I get 2 copies?

Out of the top of my head these are the ones I know Gilded Lotus, Doubling Cube, Lost Vale and Primal Wellspring can help aswell. And because you are playing mono-blue you can always have Clever Impersonator to copy any of the artifacts.

Lrya Dawnbringer (legendary creature 5/5, 5 drop(2 white +3), good if running angels) (good alt: Angel of invention, 5 drop(2 white +3) 2/1 flying, vigilance, lifelink, creates 2 1/1 servo creature tokens, AOI gets 2 +1/+1 counters when it enters, other creatures get +1/+1 )

Song of Freyalise (saga, good if running green aggro and want to summon heavy hitters like Ghalta, and when combined with the Angel of Invention AND/OR Lanowar Elves, bringing out heavy hitters in green would be easy.)

Forebear's Blade (equipment, 3 drop. Equiped creature gets +3/+0 and has vigilance and Trample. when creature dies, attach to target creature you control. Equip 3, good to put on token creatures that get generated.)

Jaya's Immolating Inferno (X+2 red drop, Legendary Sourcery, deals x damage to each of up to three targets, good with Chandra by turn 4-5 to kill 2 creatures and do 7 damage to opponent. Combine with Primal Wellspring  Flip to DOUBLE this effect, so potentially 14 damage or even 16 damage by turn 4-5)

Jaya Ballard (legendary Planeswalker, 5 drop (3 red +2,), +1 add 3 red, spend mana on instant or sourcery spells; Great with Jaya's Immolating Inferno, +1 discard up to 3 cards and draw that many, -8 get emblem with cast instant and sorcery cards from graceyard, if a card is used this way, it gets exiled after graveyard use)

Mox Amber (0 drop add 1 mana of any color among legendary creatures or planeswalkers u control, great with Nissa, Oveya,)

Caligo Skin-Witch (Creature, human wizard, 1/3, 2drop (1 black +1) kick 3+1black, when it enters and is kicked, each opponent discards 2 cards (might be good with Raiders Wake to have them lose a total of 4 life.))

Cabal Paladin (4/2 Human Knight Creature (4 drop, 1 black +3) whenever ya cast a historic spell, this card deals 2 damage to each opponent, artifacts, legendary and sagas are historic, might be a great card in Pauper)

Powerstone shard (3 drop) tap add uncolored mana for each artifact you control named Power Stone Shard and combine it with Mirage Mirror for greater mana generation)

Danitha Capashen, Paragon (Legendary Human Knight Creature 2/2, 3 drop (1 white +2) First Strike, Vigilance, Lifelink, aura and equipment spells you cast cost 1 less to cast (might be good with Forebear's Blade, Pirates Hook, other equipment spells, goes well with blue white potentially)
