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.

Maybe something like Volrath's Laboratory or Arcane Adaptation? I'm guessing changeling anyway, since flavor isn't a problem. (Also, universal tribal payoffs like Shared Animosity.)

Since Avenger of Zendikar counts as a (Forest) land when Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is in play, it can be returned with Gruul Turf.

The only zone that has permanents "you control" is the battlefield. Compare Ashaya's wording to Arcane Adaptation, for example.

Hahah thanks. Yea, the key for my group was to have a Zedruu deck that doesn't revolve around giving my opponents shit that hinders their game plan. The only classically evil card to donate here is Bronze Bombshell, but even that is just generally a fireball to the face. Donating Arcane Adaptation isn't often seen as cruel and that's the next most harmful one against me. The easily accessible donate ability simply allows us to do ridiculous shenanigans most decks could not. And zedruu just gives us some incidental card draw.

Ramses is definitely one of the coolest reimagined legends from DMU. LOVE the flavor text.

I feel like I recommend this card a lot, but Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is fantastic for getting creatures through. Combine this with a card like Arcane Adaptation or Conspiracy and you're all set!

Thank you both for your suggestions.

CoarselyRefined I couldn't find room for Maskwood Nexus, Arcane Adaptation, and Turntimber Ranger, but I'll likely use that idea in another deck.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I added Cryptic Gateway and Warden of Evos Isle. Warden of Evos Isle also led me to find and add Curiosity Crafter, which flavor wise works nicely with Arcane Flight

Welcome (back) to the club, insideus!

For a couple of suggestions, I think Geth, Lord of the Vault complements Captain N'ghathrod well, with a similar mill-to-steal approach. Arcane Adaptation can turn all your creatures into Horrors for the tribal benefits.

If you want to max out the mill options and are okay with instant win combos, Mindcrank and either Duskmantle Guildmage or Bloodchief Ascension can hand you the game on the spot.

If you like the theft aspect, check out Thieving Amalgam as well.

I like it, seems strong and on point and is probably better than mine.

Personally I think Scute Swarm / Scute Mob / Rampaging Baloths and Zendikar's Roil are actually pretty decent and can explode quickly if you like going wide and big. Also, Bane of Progress might be better or equivalent to Structural Assault because it gets enchantments and counters. You already have that wipe in addition to Blasphemous Act, having two might be better, but Star of Extinction is stupid with Vigor. Tilonalli's Summoner is more on theme than the beast or insect tokens and is better with Locus of Rage but you could theoretically use Arcane Adaptation if you really want to commit.

Eh just some thoughts, its obviously strong, but you have an easy chance to go wide for a few changes.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Futuremonk. Totally, but I find it's best in 1v1 rather than big games.

CoarselyRefined. I'll definitely reconsider Illusionist's Bracers. At the time, I cut it because I felt the equip cost was too expensive. I'll experiment with it though some more!

seshiro_of_the_orochi. Oooh Ashes of the Fallen. Hadn't seen that one. How do you feel that stacks up against Arcane Adaptation?

OLucas. TOTALLY agree Goatnapper I REALLY wanted to fit in, but is just really bad in this deck. I think I'd rather run something like Thrull Champion if it's for the memes. Then again, what would you cut for it? Definitely tempting... I had Mercenary Informer originally alongside Rebel Informer but decided to cut one. Haven't seen the goblin stealing one though! Which is that?
