Myr Superion:
Not too hard to pay {0} with mana generated by creatures!

@GeronimoMartinez: This does not affect CMC, thats a characteristic of the card. It only affects how much how much you have to pay for that card. So even if I have this out, my opponent still couldn't Smother my creature with CMC 4, even if I only paid 2.
And as far as the Everflowing Chalice debate goes, use both. Kicker is part of the casting costs (as an additional but optional cost), which means if you choose to pay the Multikicker, that becomes part of its cost to cast the spell (making its casting cost 2). Semblance Anvil clearly states it costs 2 less to cast, so you get the first kicker free.

@Kirasword001
Goblin is a creature type, and not a card type. So your goblin creature spells will not be discounted.

This card is alright. Makes for some nice redundancy in a Heartless Summoning deck that needs it.

This card works with tribal, artifact, and combo deck. Highly versatile.

@ CeremonialBathory, some clarification: It does reduce ALL Artifact AND all Creature spells by 2, but it does not reduce all Artifact Creatures by 4. As is clearly stated in the rules, it can only affect one type.

This card is basically Mana Matrix, Planar Gate, and a better version of Stone Calendar for only 3 mana.

The reason to use this over Everflowing Chalice, and the reason that this is better than an Everflowing Chalice for 4 is: this REDUCES THE COST of ALL spells you cast of the imprinted type(s). You can cast 2 mana or less artifacts for free, if you cast only one spell of the type, you may as well have just used the chalice, if you cast two, your mana savings is 100% more than using the chalice, if you cast three its 200% more. If all I wanted was two extra mana, I'd play Palladium Myr, but if I want to play a large number of spells in one turn, the Anvil is vastly superior.

If I've got two of these on the field, both exiling one type, that reduces costs by 4, correct?

@Bandswithother - An artifact creature shares a type with both creatures and artifacts. If you exile an artifact creature like a Myr with this card, it will reduce all Artifact costs by 2 and all Creature costs by 2. So, you're assumption is correct.

I guess a ruling will have to be made for this card, because I read it as only lowering a cost by {2} no matter how manner types the spell shares with the imprinted card. Otherwise I'd expect it to read "spells you cast cost {2} less to cast for each type it shares with the exiled card" and not have flavor text to make up for the extra wordiness.

Any of the Gods (Purphoros, God of the Forge, ect.) from Theros block grant you a discount on Legendary, Enchantment and Creature cards all at the same time. Any of the God weapons (Hammer of Purphoros, Bow of Nylea) grant you Legendary, Enchantment and Artifact. Makes that Anvil put in work in EDH.

To those comparing with Chalice; let me point out three things:
-This is card disadvantage
-Chalice uses charge counters (energy chamber comes to mind)
-Chalice produces mana => abilities

What this means is that they build very different decks. Chalice supports huge abilities and doesn't cost you anything but mana (and sometimes not even that!) This encourages a faster deck as you're going straight for card disadvantage to increase speed.

They both can drop fast guys, but one will probably have big spendy abilities and/or manipulate counters, the other will likely support Comes into Play effects or straight beaters.

I must admit, the idea of an anvil made of planeswalkers makes me laugh...

@Idiosyncronizer

I believe the ruling goes that, should the card no longer be exiled, the anvil no longer has an exiled card to imprint off of, and thus there is no effect.

Is it possible to remove the exiled card out from under the Semblance Anvil such as a Misthollow Griffin or any card with flashback using Runic Repetition and still retain the reduced casting cost with the associated types? I received a ruling from a L1 judge but for the sake of verification I was wondering if this works as such or if the card MUST remain exiled to the Anvil.

@Kimall - The effect from cards like Contagion Engine are abilities not spells so Semblance Anvil would not change the activation cost for the Proliferate ability or any other activated abilities.

@Ferlord: If there were an Enchantment Creature? You mean like Lucent Liminid?

I'm also pretty sure that if you exiled an Artifact Creature, Artifacts would cost 2 less and Creatures would cost 2 less.

I mean, they'd share a card type with it, and those cards have two types. If there were an Enchantment Creature, both would cost less.

If you were to play another artifact creature, it wouldn't cost 4 less, though.

My question on this card does it also count the spells cast from an artifact card. So contagion engine would it cost 2 or 4 to proliferate?
