This spell costs 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.
3 Manifold Key (M20) 230 4 Traveler's Amulet (RIX) 184 4 Renowned Weaponsmith (M20) 72 4 Guild Globe (WAR) 239 2 Treasure Map (XLN) 250 3 Sai, Master Thopterist (M19) 69 4 Mana Geode (WAR) 241 4 Powerstone Shard (DAR) 227 3 Karn, the Great Creator (WAR) 1 2 Gilded Lotus (DAR) 215 4 Flood of Tears (M20) 59 4 Ugin, the Ineffable (WAR) 2 10 Island (XLN) 265 4 Arch of Orazca (RIX) 185 1 Blast Zone (WAR) 244 4 Zhalfirin Void (DAR) 249 1 Mox Amber (DAR) 224 1 Manifold Key (M20) 230 2 Navigator's Compass (DAR) 225 1 Sentinel Totem (XLN) 245 3 Negate (RIX) 44 3 Sorcerous Spyglass (XLN) 248 1 Magistrate's Scepter (M19) 238 1 Mystic Forge (M20) 233 1 God-Pharaoh's Statue (WAR) 238 1 Meteor Golem (M19) 241
