Semblance Anvil Discussion

Cai_Zer on Heartless Glimpse

That would be great. I would suggest to add Shimmer Myr and use Lifecrafter's Bestiary instead of Beck. Then add some Semblance Anvil To get more option aside from Heartless Summoning. I would also suggest Filigree Familiar for sideboards.

Gotcha gotcha.

I may be very biased for Neheb, the Eternal, but I still thing he could have a place here. Attack, sack a huge artifact, get tons of mana, recur/pay for a new artifact, sack again. Additionally, Neheb is insane with Nim Deathmantle, allowing you to recur your entire board after sacking if you have enough mana. Also if you add some red card advantage like Commune with Lava he gets very good. Just my thoughts.

I'd cut Mycosynth Wellspring and Semblance Anvil first for sure. Wellspring doesn't do enough and the card disadvantage of the Anvil is not what you want in mono-red, which has problems with that as it is.

Also have you considered stuff like Illusionist's Bracers and damage doublers?

Thanks for the input on the deck! I like having Primeval Protector in the deck because it's a 10/10 for usually less than 11 mana. On its own, it enables me to cast Ghalta for 2 mana, and my opponents almost always have creatures to reduce its cost. I'll still consider Hooded Hydra though, although I think I've got enough recursion that a boardwipe isn't crippling.

You're right that I should have some more removal. Titania's Song and Semblance Anvil haven't impressed me so far, so I'll swap them out for Elf Replica and Beast Within (both of which have some utility if my opponents aren't running many enchantments.) I'll see if I can work a couple more removal pieces into the deck, though.

I love Zur - nice list!

Have you thought about tightening your mana base to align the sources and spells you're likely to draw?

I have a similar list over at Guay the Enchanter, if it's of any help to compare the lists. I'd love your suggestions. I have a lot to improve; for example, people have recommended Replenish over Open the Vaults. Semblance Anvil, Choice of Damnations, and Torment of Hailfire have turned out to be a lot of fun.

Happy playing!

In a five-color deck, you may want to add either Prismatic Omen or Chromatic Lantern (or both) in order to always have the right types of mana available. Also I recommend you switch out your obelisks/banners for land tutoring spells (like Rampant Growth, Farseek, Cultivate and/or Kodama's Reach). These will allow you to filter through your deck faster. I'd also recommend adding Urza's Incubator, Semblance Anvil, Dragonspeaker Shaman and/or Dragonlord's Servant to make your dragon spells much cheaper. Last thing I'd recommend: Scalelord Reckoner; makes people very reluctant to destroy your dragons.

KingOfWhales on Scarab God

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.

If you are going for a lifedrain deck look at Bontu's Monument, Whip of Erebos is good.

Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.

There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat

Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.

Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.

I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

colton815 on Reduce ability cost of artifiacts

you're probably better off mana ramping and reducing the cost of the artifacts themselves so you have mana enough to both cast stuff and activate abilities. off the top of my head i know of Etherium Sculptor, Cloud Key, and Semblance Anvil.

I'm sensing a Sphinx Tribal/Artifacts Matter theme. Here are my ideas to help things along:

Most people are familiar with the slew of black tutor cards available so I won't list those here.

Instead, here are some alternative tutors that would benefit your deck:

. Fabricate

. Reshape

. Steelshaper's Gift

. Personal Tutor

. Mystical Tutor

. Tezzeret the Seeker

Sphinx Tribal Enhancement Suggestions:

. Semblance Anvil

. Riddleform
