It also would appear that card linking to Crested Sunmare at least here in the forum is broken as well, as both this post and my previous had links to the Horse Spawner. Curiously it is searchable in the decklist card search and adds to the deck with no issues.

And to make sure it is not just me, I am linking to my favorite card Prodigal Sorcerer, which worked just fine.

Maybe you'd also like Trophy Mage.

I don't think you should run Aphetto Alchemist. He really just wants to combo with Illusionist's Bracers, Mind Over Matter, and things that tap, like Prodigal Sorcerer, Codex Shredder, and Temple Bell

You cannot activate abilities requiring a creature to tap or attack with a creature unless it has haste.

Let's look at Prodigal Sorcerer.

The turn he enters the battlefield, you cannot attack with him.

The turn he enters the battlefield, you cannot use his ability, since it would require you to tap him.

Now, let's compare with Oona, Queen of the Fae. Her ability does not require you to tap her--as such, you can activate the ability the turn she enters the battlefield.

Regarding vehicles and Kumena--yes, you can tap a summoning sick creature to crew a vehicle. Think of it this way--summoning sickness only affects a creature's ability to tap itself. Vehicles or cards like Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca are the ones causing the creature to become tapped--not the sick creature.

Rule 302.6:

A creatures activated ability with the tap symbol or the untap symbol in its activation cost cant be activated unless the creature has been under its controllers control continuously since his or her most recent turn began. A creature cant attack unless it has been under its controllers control continuously since his or her most recent turn began. This rule is informally called the summoning sickness rule.

Blue Wizards: Crafty Pathmage, Frontline Sage, Grixis Illusionist, Stream of Unconsciousness. Tideshaper Mystic, Prodigal Sorcerer, Trinket Mage could search for the "holy hand-grenade":Explosive Apparatus or any of the spell bombs. Trinket Mage could also search for the "holy grail": Golden Urn!

How do you win?

Prodigal Sorcerer, Codex Shredder, and Temple Bell are a few ways to nab victory if Laboratory Maniac does not come through.

Banding only affects combat, it doesn't make two creatures one creature. The interaction you mentioned between Prodigal Sorcerer, Royal Assassin, and Sengir Vampire will not work. Same with the Cockatrice/Sengir Vampire interaction (Lure works the way you want it to, but the Vampire can only deal damage equal to its power, Cockatrice's damage doesn't count for its ability). Banded creatures remain completely separate except during combat, and even then, they are only joined in the sense that they can be blocked together.

I like what you're doing here. But I have a picky detail to point out. Yes, Tidewater Minion goes infinite with Illusionists Bracers. BUT it is an ineffectual without a third piece (permanent that taps for mana for infinite mana, Prodigal Sorcerer for the win, etc.) Small detail, I realize, and the 'combo' is technically infinite without it.

On that note, Minion is not the only combo like that with Bracers

Aphetto Alchemist works similarly, but he only targets creatures and artifacts, so you'll need a Tim or Rock to make anything cool happen.
