@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.

It would take at least two land cards to make up the virtual mana this is giving you. The only way you suffer any card disadvantage is if someone removes it.

This has so many great uses, but another part i like and which wasn't mentioned yet is that it can also reduce the casting cost of your Morphs to 1.
So it might also be fun with or even instead of Dream Chisel.
Add some flicker effects to get your big winged dudes and dudettes like Akroma, Angel of Fury, Exalted Angel, Quicksilver Dragon and Maelstrom Djinn for a cheap amount. The djinn also works and even has a synergy with flicker if you turned him face up normally.
If you flicker Brine Elemental, you can start soft lock shenanigans with Vesuvan Shapeshifter.
Gathan Raiders also seems pretty cool as a potential 5/5 for 1 if you have hellbent (which, might be the case since you also had to pitch something for the Anvil).

Hello? Hello?

Xenograft is calling to say he actually found something to combo with in the block..

well i think at least that these two cards could be pretty friendly with one another.

This card can get pretty ridiculous. Reduces the cost of Corpse Cur or Core Prowler to two if you exile an artifact creature. Free infect artifacts? My heart is swimming.

*Edit had to fix the cost. It says in the rulings section it cannot be reduced more than two.
