I mean those are valid points, but Karn would serve as more of a distraction/enabler in my opinion. It would also give you access to "silver bullets" in game one.

I know 4 CMC is a bit high, especially considering it wouldn't help you until the turn after in most cases. I didn't actually notice how low your land count is, so I see how he wouldn't help you much currently.

Phyrexian Metamorph may be a solid option as a replacement for missing combo pieces, as it can basically act as a few different ones depending on what you are copying, since it also makes itself an artifact.

My only other thought would be to potentially splash green for cards to find your artifacts easier, since your combo relies on having 2. Ancient Stirrings would help with that a lot (also finds lands worst case). It would also help find artifacts you side in, if you decide to change up your sideboard a bit more.

Last_Laugh on Animar, Soul of Combo's

Spellseeker and Neoform are both good on their own but they also enable the most efficient combo line in Animar. It only requires , 4 life, Imperial Recruiter in hand, and Animar only needs 2 counters. Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph. Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker. Spellseeker looks up Neoform. Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue. Self bounce the Statue until Animar is double all of your opponents life totals and use the Statue's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Weird Harvest is another effect to look up Statue/Ballista for the win.

Just pointing out 2 of the best combo lines in Animar. The best isn't cheap but something to work towards over time.

Combo #1: Needs Imperial Recruiter in hand, 2 counters on Animar, 4 life, and only .

Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph . Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter to look up Spellseeker . Spellseeker looks up Neoform . Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue . Statue self bounce until Animar is double your opponents life total then use it's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Combo #2: This combos requirements change depending on which card you start with. Imperial Recruiter finds Spellseeker . Spellseeker finds Weird Harvest . Weird Harvest for 2 looks up Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista.

Land untap etb's are worth their weight in gold here. Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake are reasonably priced... Great Whale and Palinchron not so much. Stadium Vendors also falls into this category and can net infinite mana in Cloudstone loops.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

oo7x7oo or Coumie

I was needing some clarity on the Sharuum the Hegemon + Phyrexian Metamorph combo. Is it possible to use Altar of Dementia with this?

You can't respond to the Legend rule being in effect correct? Like, would I be able to sacrifice Sharuum to the Altar at any point during the interaction?

Like, I have Metamorph in the graveyard. I cast Sharuum. I target Metamorph. Use metamorph's ability to make a copy of Sharuum.

At this point, the legend rules takes precedence over everything else, correct? So I have to choose which sharuum I wish to keep, correct? I would want to keep the copy because the next ability to go on the stack would be the new "sharuum" ability?

I would use the ability to target Sharuum and the chain would start over. I understand how I can bomberman people with Reckless Fireweaver , Disciple of the Vault , Marionette Master or even mill with Altar of the Brood but, I am wondering if it is possible to use this loop with Altar of Dementia ?

Also, you had mentioned earlier in the thread that it could be infinite mill/mana? How does tha mana part play into this combo? Would it not be the same issue if you were trying to use Ashnod's Altar or KCI?

Also, Coumie thank you so much for the primer! I love it and it has inspired me to try and write my own guide for Breya.

Rhadamanthus on Does a clone copy temporary …

4 months ago

The Clone will just be a regular (non-artifact) Birds of Paradise .

The simple version of the explanation for copy effects is that they only copy what's written on the original. If you're copying a spell, it also takes into account choices made while casting the spell (modes, targets, whether it was kicked, etc.). If you're copying another copy of something, it will take into account any special effects of the other copy effect (for example, if you make a copy of Birds with Phyrexian Metamorph , then Clone the Metamorph copy, the Clone copy will also be an artifact).

Pikobyte I didn't think about that interaction with Hedron Crab and tutors, thanks for pointing that out! Just one thing, if I'm not playing LED, would running Phyrexian Metamorph be better?

What do you think of swapping out Clever Impersonator for Phyrexian Metamorph ? Is there any particular reason why you prefer using Impersonator?
