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.

I played 3 of these on turn 4 once, Spine of Ish Sah is hilarious for one mana.

@MyrBattlecube

That wouldn't work because Praetor's Grasp doesn't put the card in your hand. This card explicit states "exile a nonland card from your hand."

So I was just thinking. Make a Planeswalker heavy deck with four of these and four copies of Praetor's Grasp. Use the Grasp to snag one of their Planeswalkers, imprint it onto the Anvil, and bust out Mind Sculptor for UU, or Ajani for WW, or whatever. Terribly ineffective, but the thought of Planeswalkers costing significantly less is a bit funny to me.

Playing this in a myr deck is completely hilarious. What's that? Dumb my whole hand for free? Don't mind if I do.

So, if I'm understanding the rules for this card correctly, and I think I am I've read them several dozen times, this turns Everflowing Chalice into a colorless MOX. Being that it includes the costs of such things as kickers and "x" costs, you play the Everflowing Chalice kicked once, which would amount to a cost of 2, so because of the effect of Everflowing Chalice it becomes 0... Am I seeing this right? I believe I am.

Use in an artifact deck, exile a cheap, relatively weak artifact creature like Memnite, then stash something like Candles Of Leng in for all the extra mana you have.

@RowanKeltizar This doesn't work. You'd have to play a second Semblance Anvil, exiling another artifact creature, to get an additional 2 reduction on your artifact creatures. It says in the rulings that the reduction doesn't stack because of multiple type matches.

As for a second copy of Semblance Anvil with an exiled with another Ornithopter reducing your artifact creature costs by 4. It seems overpowerd, but I don't see why not. The rulings don't mention this scenario.

Exile an Ornithopter for a Steel Hellkite costing 2.

this card, or a card like it, was inevitable. A super-bombtastic exciting ability on an Imprint card, that finally finds the weak spot of Imprint but is still just so cool that people will still try to break it.
Then they get 2-for-1'd when someone Shatters it. This perfectly balances risk and reward like no other Imprint card. The ones you see people playing in the big games are heavy loaded with rewards that neutralize the risk. In the end, its mana ramp. But it costs 3 mana and a card to activate. And it doesn't scale unless you spend more cards. Mana ramp has so much faster. No, the Chalice isnt as 'good', but its safer. Spending a card on mana ramp better give you at least a Mox Diamond.

This isn't for straight-up combo. This is for 'Im top decking this *** combo I made up out of nowhere because Im screwed if I dont'. Its too fragile for aggro-combo, and control-combo has better options.
If you think the Heart of the Cards will guide you, by all means play this. I... (see all)
