    Good ol’ tomb raiding. ;)

  • Jay Kilian

    This would be decent in a draw go deck.

  • CMK

    Oh this is good.. reversing the dynamic of the brick counters. Additionally, a colorless draw effect like this has almost never been this affordable before.

    • ymmij X

      and this is the uncommon one. what will the rare brick card for this set be?

  • Hedronal

    Ha, this one I find mechanically funny.

  • Shagoth

    Two mana per turn to draw in any color is really good for three turns, and it’s not useful after as you can scry. I am happy that this will probably replace J Tome.

    I just realized that wizards have never printed a Sun Set… baddum tsh

  • Caleb Martin

    I love the flavor in reversing the brick counter mechanic.

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Huh… Looks like each brick counter you put on an artifact takes about 10 years to place. Wait…. does that mean – ATRAXA IS A TIME TRAVELLER! *back to the future music plays*

    • Caleb Martin

      Phyrexian time travellers? Please no

  • Murilo Mazza

    Control decks will hate this haha

  • kmk888

    I like the design a lot, and there are always matchups where slow card draw is wanted. However I suspect you really want a way to abuse having it around in order to rationalize its inclusion in the main deck. Speaking of, I do think this is good enough to make the cut in Metalwork Colossus decks.

    • Jay Kilian

      Yeah, it wants to be bounced when empty. In Crush of tentacles decks?

      • kmk888

        If you draw all 3 cards you have already gained a huge advantage and likely don’t need the added bonus of bouncing it, but I encourage you to follow your dreams anyways.

    it’s no Serum Tank, but it’s not bad.
    way better than Trigon of Thought though.

    • ymmij X

      it works in more decks than serum tank since it doesn’t need other artifacts. i’d sidedeck it for grindy matchups

  • Davey Desjarlais

    I’m always trying my hardest to make Standard UB Tezzeret a thing and I’m hoping this helps my efforts.

    • Random Guy

      Really? 8 mana to draw 3 is not good.

      • Davey Desjarlais

        It’s basically paying 2 mana to get a clue a turn, is fetchable with Inventors’ Fair, can be found with Glint-Nest Crane and scries later on in the game after you use up your counters.

      • Leotamer

        You can’t see it as 8 mana to draw 3, because you aren’t using all of that mana in the same turn. The simple fact that you are paying for it over time. Though, I think it may be to slow for standard or modern, it might see play, but I think it will really shine in commander.

    I actually think that the two mana Jayemade Tome might be solid enough to see play in the Atraxa decks. It draws each turn in Atraxa!

    • Friedrich

      Still costs 2 mana though…

      • Shagoth

        Which is a good deal. I’d rather pay two per turn to draw than to pay four a turn to draw. It’s a very cheap consistent draw spell in that deck.

        • Friedrich

          I as a chronical black player compare this instantly to something like Phyrexian Arena and that feels really weak. I know Atraxa stacks the counters, but there are simply more efficient ways to draw a bonus card per turn.

          • Shagoth

            Redundancy can be good, also this can be used in a red or white deck, which doesn’t have Phyrexian arena. Also, arena is relatively mana intensive for four colors.

          • Friedrich

            Even white and red have better ways, red most of the time just loots a whole lot and white can draw cards in a multitude of situations (Mentor of the Meek, Mesa Enchantress etc.).
            Yes this card synergizes with Atraxa, but even that does not make it better than most blue draw spells or pretty much anything Atraxa already plays :/
