You know your opponents can also manipulate the counter on Walking Archive to maximize their card draw befor their turn starts. I'd say that's also a negative

I have Well of Ideas in my group hug EDH deck, but I am contemplating replacing it with Walking Archive , so I wish to ask for advice from the others users here before I make a decision.

I shall compare the cards, below, listing their advantages and disadvantages.

Well of Ideas

+controller receives the benefit before their opponents do, and receives a greater benefit

-has a higher mana cost

Walking Archive

+has a lower mana cost

+provides a creature for blocking

+is a mana sink, and can potentially draw a significant number cards over the course of the game

-opponents shall receive the benefit before the controller, and all players receive the same benefit

What does everyone else say about this? Which card should I use in my deck?

Alternatively, I could replace Dictate of Kruphix with Walking Archive , although the flash mechanic on the dictate is very appealing. What does everyone say about that idea?

Hey KibaAlpha!

No, the idea is benched. I was trying to phase out white for Sakashima but instead discovered the potential of Basri's Lieutenant with e.g. Good-Fortune Unicorn . Tayam, Luminous Enigma and Luminous Broodmoth caught my attention and suddenly with all these new white sources Sakashima just couldn't take the helm.. And I couldn't take it in my heart either to bench Walking Archive .

Instead I've been cutting the CMC and made more room for combo potential. The list is a bit outdated as right now Mazirek and Spark double made room for Double Major (fun with doubling season) and Tanazir Quandrix (I have about 30 creatures that have base power 2 or less, which makes this thing so good!).

And man, in it's current setup this deck is running so incredibly well now. I see you've caught the Orzhov fever lately, you still play with Reyhan?
