Hi, Profet93,

I agree with you that drawing is better than scrying, but scrying is just a lot cheaper to do. From the scry cards I currently play, I would not drop Jace, Mirror Mage, because I enjoy playing it, and I would not drop Behold the Multiverse, because its a nice instant draw spell.

That only leaves Retreat to Coralhelm, if Im not overlooking something. I might consider removing Retreat to Coralhelm at some point because it doesnt have that much synergy with the rest of the deck. Earlier, I played both Arcanis the Omnipotent and Walking Atlas, which were really good with it, but now I only have Azami, Lady of Scrolls left.

However, it does give me a free scry per round for three mana, which is pretty nice. And it does synergize with Azami, Lady of Scrolls as well as potentially being usefull for tapping annoying blockers. Maybe in a situation where I have a big Sturmgeist on the table and my opponent has a single flying blocker it could do some work.

So.. Keeping the scrying cards for now I think.

You mention more "card draw" -cards, did you have any spesific ones in mind? Any card suggestions?

beastmenwarrior Yeah, Gadwick is entirely a card draw piece for me, and replaced Arcanis the Omnipotent from the original deck. The tapping ability is mostly extra and does provide a bit of extra value, so I find that the card does what I need it to do even if it isn't the most brilliant piece. The Mirror Box idea is interesting and I may think about it. It is a bit niche as you say, but it does seem like fun!

Mike has an infinite combo with either Intruder Alarm or Village Bell-Ringer, a sac outlet (ideally Ashnod's Altar) to create an untap loop. you can use Faeburrow Elder or Bloom Tender for infinite mana, Arcanis the Omnipotent or Shorikai, Genesis Engine to draw your deck, I am sure there is a tap and ping a target as well.

You can use Rise and Shine and Cyberdrive Awakener to also beat down your opponents with artifact tokens.

I am running a Stranger Things list too! The Mind Flayer, The Demogorgon, & The Upside Down, It is a Mike and Will Abzan Combo/midrange list that has been pretty fun.

I am debating what to do with Eleven, I would like to run a spellslinger list with her. Hopper went in my Isshin, Two Heavens as One list. Max has potential. Dustin and Lucas got shafted, I wish Dustin was a sort of Grand Architect-like card and Lucas just sac'd an artifact to ping any target, I am sure the cEDH players wanting to run Mike Lucas, ft Lurrus would love that for a win con.

To piggy back off of the Mind Over Matter i thought id share a fun combo (though not efficient).

Arcanis the Omnipotent + Mind Over Matter + Mystic Redaction + Rise of the Dark Realms

I second Arcanis the Omnipotent, which furthermore goes infinite with Mind Over Matter. But I also like to suggest wipeout as a card that's underappreciated. Also, Omniscience is a cool trick once you have half of your library in your hand.

CamraMaan on Does Dress Down affect creatures …

The scenario is that my opponent just cast Cackling Counterpart to make a copy of his Arcanis the Omnipotent, to which I respond by casting Dress Down... does Cackling Counterpart still copy all of Arcanis the Omnipotent, it just will be a vanilla 3/4 creature until end of turn? Or will it be prevented from copying Arcanis' card text because of Dress Down, and remain a vanilla 3/4 creature after the turn ends...?

Thanks in advance! :)

Lanzo493: you have a very good point Kaya's Ghostform does not work with Soulherder, or Teleportation Circle
But i still support them because Kaya's Ghostform will work with all the other untap effects, while Soulherder & Teleportation Circle will work with all the other wonderfull etb creatures like Agent of Treachery & Sun Titan
so i am going to surrender this debate to "dealers choice" feeling both points are valid

On another note i can understand hesitation on cutting Arcanis the Omnipotent becouse the value of draw three, , draw three more
May i suggest cut Arcanis the Omnipotent & Baleful Strix then put in Jace's Archivist ?
