Semblance Anvil Discussion

Cloud Key / Semblance Anvil (naming artifacts) + Top + Mystic Forge = Draw your entire deck. Key/Anvil are both useful regardless of the combo.

Not of This World - Free counterspell, while limited, proves useful

Voltaic Key > Manifold Key - How often do you use the "can't be blocked?" If you can't find cuts like you said, consider swapping manifold key for voltaic. The main reason below is as follows...

Adding Rings of Brighthearth allows you extra activations of MOST of your activated abilities. Rings + Key + Everflowing chalice (4 mana) nets you infinite colorless mana. Tap chalice for 4, key for 1 targeting chalice (3 mana floating). Hold priority, activate rings to copy the untap ability of key (note this only works for voltaic and not manifold due to the "other" artifact clause) targetting key to be untapped (1 mana floating). End result is 1 mana more than you started with

Also, if I'm not mistaken, adding Top to the above will allow you to draw your entire deck (could be wrong on the math on that one, but I believe once you have infinite mana, it should work)

Lmk what you think of each suggestion. Looking forward to your response

KayneMarco on help me with my morophon eldrazis please!

First off. I would consider using Jodah, Archmage Eternal as the commander for this deck. If you’re set on using Morophon I’ll make these suggestions:

Those suggestions will help get your big fatties into play faster if you haven’t been able to get Jodah or fist of the suns into play. Now onto your mana base. I would consider adding these lands:

If you do use any of these possible additions and if you want any help figuring out what to remove just let me know.

Monomanamaniac on Another Words of wind interaction

Ok, so in this instance I have Words of Wind, Alhammarret's Archive, Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, Semblance Anvil, and Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain all on the battlefield (it's a lot I know but it sets up an interesting situation, and just know that any x card besides words of wind can be swapped with other cards that do the same thing). So in this case i cast the thought vessel, then jhoira's ability goes on the stack, then alhammarret's archive's ability goes on the stack, then I tap sol ring to pay 1 with words of wind. Words of wind's ability goes on the stack and I return the sol ring to my hand and draw the second card from jhoira and archive's combined 2. Are all of those actions legal actions? Am I allowed to wait until alhammarret's archive's ability modifies jhoira's ability before activating words of wind? Can I activate words of wind first, then cast the artifact and still have alhammarret's archive's ability modify that draw and let me draw a card and return a permanent

I don't think you'd need 3 copies of each, since just one does what you need it to do (multiple copies of Mystic Forge is kind of redundant and multiple copies of Semblance Anvil is overkill). I'd try replacing Witching Well since it affects your game plan the least.

Apologize in advance if you've already answered this/considered this.

The previous version of this deck utilized Mystic Forge/Sensei's Divining Top. You cut this since you have to cut Etherium Sculptor to enable the Tidespout Tyrant line.

Have you considered doing the Mystic Forge line with a noncreature cost reducer, like Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil? You could do this while keeping the Tidespout Tyrant line. I realize at 3cmc they are more costly than Etherium Sculptor, but not by that much. And while you risk getting two for oned with Semblance Anvil a cost reduction is powerful (though maybe not necessary for your deck).

Is this too expensive/clunky/slow for cEDH? Thoughts?

I would suggest putting in more lands because 18 is really low, especially if you're playing X spells. I would push it up to 23/24 with Seat of the Synod (since you're playing casually) and Castle Vantress for filtering. You could also try Semblance Anvil to reduce the cost of all your creatures and/or artifacts. Hope this helps.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Scarecrows combo/aggro

This might be a bit expensive considering the average CMC of your deck is pretty low, but have you tried Mystic Forge? It can allow you to consistently filter the top of your deck for a little bit of life and effectively extends your hand by 1. It can also pair together nicely with Semblance Anvil (most scarecrows cost 1 =) ). Hope this helps.
