In decks that generate token artifact creatures this is useful, in most other artifact decks it is useless.

Combos well with Puppet Conjurer as a card draw engine. Drawing a card for one Blue mana and one Black mana ain't too bad.

Flash lets you keep mana open for counterspells, and play this at the end of your opponent's turn.

What do you gain from artifacts in your graveyard? Salvage Slasher gets bigger (but still can be pinged away) and you might be able to get Salvage Titan back to your hand.
Immortal Coil definitely wants cards in the graveyard.

I've not seen it played yet, and it's not really my kind of deck, so I don't know how useful it is.

The card is kind of lame, at least in constructed, because it's too expensive. But the idea is really cool – I like how it has Flash – and the art is just _gorgeous_.

I think the plan is to sac an artifact that would be killed anyway, and/or to mill cards. The only thing I see preventing this from being a must have in all U/B artifact decks is that it can only cycle one card at a time.

In some decks it could be useful, but blue has much more efficient draw spells

Silentbobus, I sincerely and respectfully disagree. Your artifacts will be going to the graveyard too infrequently and inconsistently for this to be effective. Seems like most games it'll be a 2-for-1 card draw for 5 mana. May as well play divination. (Or, you know, good cards).

I don't get it. what is the point of this card?
Posted By: Tearthesky (8/10/2011 3:53:34 AM)


I'd like to see it not get tapped.

with spine of ish sah
it's almost like a transmuter. Sac, Draw, play land, recast, repeat, destroy!
Also, in Sharuum EDH, it's got about a million other possible combos

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
