Arcane Signet Discussion
1 day ago
TolarianScientist, sorry to keep singling you out, but you're the only one commenting on this deck...
Alright, so I just removed Terminate, Merfolk Skydiver and Rise of the Hobgoblins in favor of Maraleaf Pixie, Gyre Engineer and Lotus Field. However, I really can't figure out what I would remove for Arcane Signet. It just seems like that would put me at too many spells that aren't mana pairs, and I like the mana rocks I already have in there better. I already added Faeburrow Elder, and had forgotten to mention Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle as a mana dork in my previous comment. Do you think that's enough?

If you're trying to win with a big enough board of creatures, you'll reach critical mass faster if you sac them to Plunge into Darkness or Reprocess. Planar Portal is awfully inefficient. You're not cheating Eldrazi into play, so tutoring for the piece directly seems way faster. Crystal Ball is cute, but this doesn't feel like the deck for it. Black is loaded up on ways to tutor, reanimate, scry, draw, etc. On the whole, I would examine how many artifacts you're playing. Of what's there, I'd look for upgrades, as well. Arcane Signet is strictly better than Charcoal Diamond, because that is the world we live in.

Hey hey dawg!
There are just so many ways you could go about this! I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing here but here are a few ideas
Return of the Wildspeaker --> out -- I just dont think this card is very good in general. You dont have a ton of big creatures and +3/+3 isn't that exciting. Would rather play Harmonize which is unconditional.
Austere Command --> maybeboard -- This could be wrong, but I was looking for cards to cut and felt like an expensive wrath wasn't exactly where your deck wanted to be.
Keeper of Fables --> maybeboard -- I mean I get it that you can potentially draw up to 3 cards a turn, but its just so meh.
Greater Auramancy --> Maybeboard -- I was considering this cuz I think there's potential for a strong enchantments theme. Opted for Sterling Grove instead because it also tutors but this is here just as a consideration.
Archon of Absolution --> maybeboard -- Its on theme but I don't think its taxing enough right? maybe I'm crazy and this is exactly what you want cuz you can trigger goad with your commander?? but its 4 mana as well idk I just took it out cuz its floor is very low.
Kinjalli's Sunwing --> out -- Not sure why this card was in here to begin with, I mean you aren't granting mass haste or anything and the whole idea is you're goading people so few people are gonna have blockers, plus plenty of your is evasive. I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar feels this role very well already.
Urabrask the Hidden --> maybeboard -- This card is sweet but its 5 mana.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion --> maybeboard -- Elspeth feels a little out of place.
Beast Whisperer --> maybeboard -- Not into this as a reliable form of card draw.
Soltari Champion --> out -- I get the idea, you're trying to trigger goad, but isn't this card just bad? a 3 mana unblockable with battlecry doesn't seem particularly playable.
Gruul War Chant --> out -- This card is just way too low impact for 4 mana.
Sunblast Angel --> Maybeboard -- I get the idea cuz everyone is attacking and tapped but meh.
Dryad Sophisticate --> out -- I don't think unblockable 2/1 are good enough even if they do trigger marisi. I like the idea of playing evasive hatebears or something. Maybe I'm just way off base with this deck haha
The Great Henge --> maybeboard -- this card is sweet and super pwoerful but you got a bunch of dorky 2/2s and stuff this thing is gonna routinely cost you like 7 mana and at that point wouldn't you just play Zendikar Resurgent? (I didn't put zendikar resurgent in though but if you want an effect like henge, I think I'd go with resurgent)
Druids' Repository --> main -- Idk! this seems cool and fun!! All your creatures become mana dorks cuz they'll be attacking anyway! Seems p good! Also if you make a bunch of 1/1 tokens with Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering you make a bunch of mana when they attack!
Skullclamp --> main -- I think because stuff like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor plus having a bunch of stuff that might end up dying this'll draw you a lot of cards. Plus if you play Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering its bonkers!!
Insurrection --> main -- Its a sweet win condition!!
Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor --> main -- in my view this exactly what you want to be doing!
ok wow this comment is getting long so I'm just gonna list the rest of the cards that I think should go in/out:
War's Toll -- in
Sterling Grove -- in
Sphere of Safety - in
Sylvan Offering - in
Enlightened Tutor - in
Harmonize - in
Goblin Spymaster - in
Tahngarth, First Mate - in (this one just seems fun :D totally get it if you decide not to)
Tempt with Vengeance - in
Teferi's Protection - in
Rishkar's Expertise - out
Grand Melee - maybe, for now I decided to just play war's toll but maybe neither are good enough
Whew!! Can't wait to play against this in any shape or form! Hope at least some of these suggestions help!

Don't forget to swap a rock for Arcane Signet, and maybe Talisman of Hierarchy too. I've been testing with Wishclaw Talisman also, could be worth a shot as there's no downside if you go off same turn. Rest in Peace seems like an easy include by itself, ever considered Helm of Obedience? Cool list!

TolarianScientist, I can totally get down with Faeburrow Elder. What do you think about Arcane Signet? I had thought briefly about Darksteel Ingot, and had decided against it only because it's not a color pair. However, the Signet costs 1 less, and still gives me any color, so it seems worth it. Especially with what you're saying about EDH trends.

Also may I ask what purpose Brand serves in the deck? Does your meta have a lot of permanent stealing going on or is it there for the cycle effect?
