Emry, Lurker of the Loch 2U

Legendary Creature — Merfolk Wizard

This spell costs {1} less to cast for each artifact you control.

When Emry, Lurker of the Loch enters the battlefield, put the top four cards of your library into your graveyard.

Tap: Choose target artifact card in your graveyard. You may cast that card this turn.

A lot of people’s heads will be ticking trying to break this card, that’s for sure! It reminds us a lot of Kethis, the Hidden Hand in a way. We definitely think with this card, a viable artifact deck is possible in Historic, especially with cards like Mox Amber.

Cards like Renowned Weaponsmith, Ugin, the Ineffable can make some artifacts much cheaper to cast – it’s a matter of how to make the artfacts into good use! Here’s an example artifact deck used by Matt Nass in a recent Fandom Legends tournament – but a lot of the core cards are rotating out, so we’ll have to see what else we can do.
