The artwork reminds me a lot of Our Market Research Shows That Players Like Really Long Card Names So We Made this Card to Have the Absolute Longest Card Name Ever Elemental

Defender? If I'm not mistaken, it is a WALKING archive. Still cool though.

I was once in a four player free for all where a guy had a deck built around this. He used a single contagion clasp (this was before scars so its all he had) to pump his archive giving us all sorts options that we could only look at thanks to his lodestone golems, and whenever we did get something rolling he would just All is Dust. He never lost tempo or decked out thanks to Elixir of Immortality; the life gain did help him, and he would always re-draw an All is Dust. He also used Obelisk of Alara just for the life boost.

Earlier in the game I had ***ed him off, so when I went to attack a different opponent he used Fate Transfer on my pumped Kazandu Bladmaster to give his counters to one of my opponents creatures.

@Daikoru, Wakestone Gargoyle says Hi.

Walking Archive is a funny card. My friends laugh at me for playing it. Beefing him up and everybody draws a ton of cards. Everybody is happy! ...Then... Jaces Erasure comes out... suddenly everybody is feeling squeamish about my Walking Archive. Before my friends know it, they're drawing 4 to 6 cards on their turn and their milling 4 to 6 cards on my turn. Can't play a deck if there is no deck to play with. MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Too bad it's defender, attacking with him and seeing if your opponent will decide to kill it would be awesome to watch. Maybe play him along with something that allows him to attack?

Also note that this card makes you draw in the upkeep step, you can combo it with Paradox Haze to increase the advantage to yourself.

Love this card.
I run a white and blue artifact deck.
And noone objects to me speeding the game up. Until I have all the cards I need to play almost my entire deck in 1 turn.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
