Sanctum Plowbeast Discussion

Looks like a fun build! I have a similar deck, and here's some things I would suggest adding:

Dimir Infiltrator/Drift of Phantasms/Dimir House Guard: These guys can all be discarded in order to get important cards to your game plan. I notice you have a lot of spells at CMC's 2, 3, and 4, so they should be a great fit!

Compulsion: You can now cycle any of your cards!

Cast Out: Cycles, and is a versatile removal spell.

Tortured Existence: All you need is one creature in your graveyard and one creature in your hand to get an insane amount of discard triggers with this card. It's a lot of fun!

Phyrexian Reclamation: This can get back a good creature, or at the very least allow you to cycle something again in a pinch.

Spirit Cairn: Another good token maker on discard in case you feel you need more benefits when you do cycle.

I've suggested 8 cards to add. If I was going to suggest as many to cut, here's what I would say:

Unburden: One player having to discard two is not very helpful in a multiplayer game. This will mostly just make one person your enemy.

Lurching Rotbeast/Sanctum Plowbeast/Winged Shepherd/Djeru's Renunciation: These will mostly end up being part of the deck simply because you can cycle them, which is a good sign that there are better options.

Absorb Vis: Same problem as Unburden. If you want to make one opponent your enemy, great. Otherwise, it exists because you can cycle it.

New Perspectives: When cycling, you typically do not end up ahead on cards. This means that you will rarely end up at max hand size, so this is an expensive draw spell.

Plea for Guidance: You have 4 enchantments, 3 of which your commander can go get you. It is not very helpful here.

Regardless of what you end up doing, this looks like a fun deck. Good luck!

BlueScope on Can I use Grand Architect ...

You cannot.

While Plainscycling and Islandcycling are abilities of Sanctum Plowbeast, even though you can activate those abilities from outside the battlefield, Sanctum Plowbeast itself is merely an artifact card when it's not on the battlefield, and Grand Architect's restriction on artifacts means it's restricted to permanents with the artifact type and therefore doesn't allow you to spend the mana on abilities of artifact cards.

It's not as simple as providing a single rule quote here, but the entirety of 110.4 will back this answer.

Does Fluctuator work with other cycling types, like Basic landcycling, Slivercycling, Swampcycling etc?

Unfortunately there isn't any rulings in Fluctuator's Gatherer page, so, does it?
