Arcane Adaptation

Arcane Adaptation


As Arcane Adaptation enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creatures you control are the chosen type in addition to their other types. The same is true for creature spells you control and creature cards you own that aren't on the battlefield.

If you find a way to turn it into a Griffin you could smack someone with a rock the size of the universe. (That was a fun sentence to write.) Ensoul Artifact and Arcane Adaptation ?

To back up GhostChieftain's The First Sliver idea, you could also run a few cards like Conspiracy and Arcane Adaptation .

Both Arcane Adaptation and Maskwood Nexus have cheaper cmc than Conspiracy. Might be worth including or replacing. Captain's hook might be a card to replace with Arcane Adaptation.

This is a really interesting deck idea and a funny way to use a somewhat niche commander.

If you really want to make someone lord of the salamanders, you could Donate an Arcane Adaptation or Xenograft . Even better, you could use something like Puca's Mischief or Daring Thief to swap it for something nice of theirs.

Arcane Adaptation? Seeing lots of potential "Serpents" here in the form of token fodder.

As Polaris said, Hivestone won't make creature spells slivers, so they won't have cascade. Another small point of clarification, if cast The First Sliver and cascade into another sliver, that sliver will not cascade, as The First Sliver needs to be on the battlefield in order to grant cascade. Once it's in play, future slivers you cast can cascade into smaller slivers, cascading again.

6/14/2019 The First Sliver's last ability only applies while it's on the battlefield. If The First Sliver's own cascade ability lets you cast another Sliver card, that Sliver won't have cascade.

If you did want to make your creature spells into sliver spells, so that The First Sliver let's them cascade, you can grant creature types to creature spells with Conspiracy, Arcane Adaptation, or Maskwood Nexus.

I think Maskwood Nexus is a mistake. Card restrictions for tribal decks are exactly what makes building a tribal deck fun, removing restrictions from a deck type that's shaped by them feels like a wrong turn to me.

We already had Conspiracy, Arcane Adaptation and Xenograft to help tribal decks of a specific tribe to fit in creatures from outside it. If Maskwood Nexus was that, but colorless, I'd be all for it, but the next step, the "Screw it, everything is all tribes now" breaks the game a little bit.
