conthogib987 Thanks for the suggestions! While I like Archaeomancer I’m looking to keep the number of creatures generally low. Will add to the maybeboard!

Archaeomancer would add a few combos between the mana rocks and being able to blink a rock, Jin, Archaeomancer and a land. Works with almost all of the rocks on the list (other than Mind Stone, Jeweled Lotus and Mox Opal).

Gives infinite ETB, LTB, blue mana, storm, plus locking all opponents out casting instants, sorceries, and artifacts for the most part.

Love the deck!

enpc, thanks for the suggestions. Ghostly Flicker looks like a good idea. I'll have to think a bit more on the Eternal Witness vs Archaeomancer though; the cost difference matters if I don't have a spare Witness sitting around.

I usually just make token copies/clones of Archaeomancer - type cards if I want to recur the heck out of instants/sorceries. Add any red and blue fork effects that duplicate spells like Reiterate and green for all the mana ever and you got it. Jodah lets you drop things like Nyxbloom Ancient faster, but I think Kenrith, the Returned King also gets a nod as a way to do something with your mana in absence of your 'secret commander'. He even draws cards to find it!

I found maybe some sort of jank. Morophon, the Boundless, Archaeomancer, Omnispell Adept, Tradewind Rider, and Intruder Alarm.

Use Jodah and morophon to free cast Archaeomancer and omnispell. use omnispell to cheat cast Curse of the Cabal or Vona's Hunger. If you have something that makes your bois into mana dorks, you can use tradewind and intruder alarm to return archaeomancer to hand and something else then then recast them for free. when you play them, you can untap your board with the intruder alert and recast your spells again.

Sadly, you cant do recasts with Fraying Omnipotence as you lose your creatures. if there was a card similar to the mirror that can allow you to recast it, that would be chill but this combo seems like it has the right idea.

MillerBrewing,

Thanks for the reply. I'm confused though. There is quite a bit of card draw and tutoring in the deck. Granted, this is an older build that hasn't underwent any changes since Commander Legends. This was a contest deck built solely for that purpose with what I believed to be at the time the best cards for this deck in specific.

When you note, "I don't see a lot of draw in this". I'm wondering if you really looked the deck over. I noted in early playtesting that it was lacking draw so I added as much as I could without concentrating solely on drawing cards. Examples below.

Bonder's Ornament

Cartouche of Knowledge

Fall from Favor

Ophidian Eye

Pentarch Ward

Anticipate

Dizzy Spell

Impulse

Muddle the Mixture

Merchant Scroll

Ponder

Preordain

Azure Fleet Admiral

Drift of Phantasms

Mulldrifter

Pondering Mage

Sea Gate Oracle

Staunch Throneguard

And on top of these, Flicker effects can blink Archaeomancer or Mnemonic Wall to get you back your Ghostly Flicker plus an Anticipate, Impulse, Ponder, Preordain etc over and over.

So I mean, There's plenty of draw and pseudo "draw" with transmute and tutor effects. There have been some other cards printed since that should probably be reviewed but I didn't intend on this being a deck I would really spend a lot of my time on. It was built primarily to showcase partner commanders. Especially those being newly released.

I'd be more than happy to hear out any changes that you think should be made. As far as I can tell the best pauper draw spells that are in this deck's color pie are already included in the deck. (Providing they were available for use when CMDR Legends was released).

multimedia on Runo, Vampire of the Seas

Hey, nice version, but you forgot Whelming Wave?

Frantic Search is a really good enabler for Runo, by discarding a 6 CMC creature and then use the three lands you untap to cast Runo. Lim-Dul's Vault is another excellent enabler since you have a lot of life in Commander.

Reanimation helps when playing so many high CMC creatures and a low amount of lands. With Apprentice Necromancer the creature you reanimate has haste letting it attack to be copied by Krothuss the same turn you reanimate. Obsessive Stitcher is a repeatable looter and can reanimate even at instant speed on your last opponent's turn to then attack with that creature and Krothuss on your turn. Both these reanimation sources are creatures which can be helpful with Krothuss, if the battlefield is clear to attack to copy. Victimize is sac a creature, most likely a token copy, to reanimate any two creatures.

Victimize and Time Warp, etc. here go well with Archaeomancer to recur them to cast again because Archaeomancer is a creature who Krothuss can copy. Can be infinite extra turns for repeatable five mana as long as Krothuss can keep attacking and copying Archaeomancer. Baleful Strix is great to mutate with Sea-Dasher Octopus, making a 2/2 Octopus with flying, deathtouch, draw a card when it ETB and when it does combat damage to a player.

Attacking creature you want to copy with Krothuss, Spawning Kraken, 9/9 Krakens, etc. can really benefit from evasion. Wonder is nice because you can discard it and you have a lot of Islands. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC creature who also makes your creatures nearly unblockable and pairs with Stormtide Leviathan. Junk Winder is a Serpent who pairs well with Spawning to tap down opponent blockers.

If interested I offer suggestions of cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.
