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.

Imprint a mana myr and not only are the rest free, every artifact AND every creature you play is now dirt cheap.

I super love the idea I read in the one column of using this to power through a deck loaded with 2 cost draw a card artifacts. See Prophetic Prism, Ichor Wellspring. Giving a ton of artifacts for a Time Sieve, or something like a Darksteel Juggernaut

I thought this would be a game changer in general with my artifact decks, but too often it ends up in hand with artifacts that I would not want to take out of the game. Or worse, ends up getting bounced destroyed leading to its removal as well as the exiled card. In the end I would of just rather tried to play the card itself.


Somewhere I find this more curious is in a well balanced control deck with a lot of enchantments. Exiling an enchantment like Pacifism can seem unassuming enough. However when you get to play a Drake Umbraor Mind Control in the same turn, your opponent may ques... (see all)

So, using this and exiling any artifact creature can really power up a tribal deck. Tribal equipment will cost {2} less, and all of your creatures will cost {2} less. Amazing for extended.

Why not just use Everflowing Chalice? For just 1 more mana, it works for every single card type, abilities, can be cast to reduce the cost more, and doesn't suffer from probable card disadvantage.

@Razbot- but the thing is, chalice works on all types of cards, not just sorceries or creatures or whatever. Chalice is a much better card realistically because it's more flexible, not prone to having to make only certain spells cost less. I mean, if you have 3 Time Warps in your hand, sure the anvil is amazing. But if I have a Naturalize in my hand, it means I just 2 for 1'ed you.

@Gomorrah Because you can only use Everflowing chalice once per turn? Semblance Anvil a sorcery, blast off 1 mana act of treasons, 3 mana Time Reversal, rinse/repeat?

How about using it with Yawgmoth's Will? Yawg's Will is pretty much game anyways, bu if you choose sorcery, Yawg's Will costs a measly Black!
