YES this works with Overload (alternate cost), just like it would with flashback, or miracle.
YES this works with Replicate (additional cost) but NOT in the way you would expect. Replicate, like Kicker, Buyback, and Entwine, is an additional cost added on top of the normal cost. This means that no matter how many times you Replicate a spell, Electromancer only shaves 1 off the total cost. This seems meaningless at first glance, because it's only a discount of 1, but multiple Electromancers stack.

Say for example you control two Electromancers and cast Pyromatics, Replicating it once. The cost increase of Replicate is applied first, resulting in a cost of 2RedRed - you are not casting two spells for 1Red each, you are casting the one spell for 2RedRed. The Electromancer's ability kicks in afterwards, reducing it by 2 (one for each Electromancer) meaning you pay ... (see all)

@ Ferlord

I have to agree with Ezuna, especially since the Electromancer's ability would only affect the cost of casting the spell, not the replicate cost. Sure, Train of Thought now only costs Blue, but it still costs 1Blue to replicate.

@ Ezuna

Do you mean that the deck doesn't have much Replicate stuff, or if this card doesn't go well with Replicate?

BECAUSE IF YOU MEANT THE LATTER, I dunno what you're smoking.

I find this card underwhelming in the duel deck due to lack of synergy with replicate.

@Ferlord

Yes Replicate have no interaction with this card's ability and that's a fact. I guess you're the one smoking.

If you get 2 Goblin Electromancers on the field.
Get Djinn Illuminatus on the field.

Does Seismic Spike destroy all lands?

enchant with Dual Casting and use that saved red mana to effectively cast two of a spell for the same cost, spread the burn around nicely, for example double Arc Trail for just two red mana, especially useful when paired with Wee Dragonauts equipped with a Leering Emblem

I would have to assume that the Electromancer, Djinn, Spike combo wouldn't work.

While copies of replicated spells have replicate themselves the copies replicate abilities cannot be triggered. That is because once it replicates it goes directly on the stack. *You aren't "playing" the copies.

So what you get is

Copy
Copy
Spike

Once the spike resolves you get the 2 mana replacing what you spent, but the other copies are already on the stack and can't be re-replicated.

If however you were playing in a multi-player match, had multiple copies of the spell in your hand, and 10 mana you COULD destroy 5 of your opponenets lands for each of the spikes in your hands since after the resolution of each stack you'd be floating enough mana to start another one.

I personally like it. Turns Cancels into Counterspells. Any ideas on what the rulings for Overload are?
