A few weeks ago @ChubbyRain played this deck. I have no clue how he did because I didn't watch, but The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale and Bojuka Bog seem like the only damn cards left that Dredge doesn't build to sidestep in a post-London world. Bonus points for stunting on anyone brewing with Mystic Gate (EDIT: Mystic Forge. Thanks unremarkable WotC card names!) a la Force of Vigor.

@anonymous that list get several points for style but I do not believe that I can pull that off like the Dragonlord

You're trying to be defeatist when in reality his list is just this deck from the week prior with changes based on what he's learned playing it. Don't put decks on a pedestal just because you don't have the pedigree of the pilot.

Does anyone have a list to share with this card? I am very interested in any competitive list.

If Myco Lattice is in play, you can any nonland card off the top, in case someone wants to try this in a colored Shop list.

That seems like an expensive card when trying "chain off" with Mystic Forge. You could bring down the CMC of the deck by running 4 Karn, the Great Creator and run the Mycosynth Lattice in the sideboard (as well as the 4th Mystic Forge).

@john-cox said in [M20] Mystic Forge:

Hey, if there is a Karn, the Great Creator out does this work on any spell? Is that a route to look at? Maybe in Eldrazi?

Your Karn? No, only artifacts and colorless nonlands. Their Karn? No, only artifacts and colorless nonlands, and you can no longer clear the top card with Mystic Forge's activated ability.

I'm interested from 2022 onward.

The "balls out" combo version of this deck sounds like the shining answer to the question "What deck would want all eight Keys?"

@craw_advantage said in Serious Vintage Ep. 42 - Heating Up Mystic Forge [free Wizards preview]:

@anonymous I don't think this works, unfortunately. Even though it's a colorless spell on the stack, the card itself needs to be either an artifact or a colorless non-land card. If it was an artifact land with morph I think it would work.

The podcast episode discussed why my interaction works.

Hot take: If you're adding Mystic Forge and Sensei's Divining Top to Ravager Shops, swap the Mishra's Factory slot for Zoetic Cavern to properly abuse the rule about morphs being colorless spells.

Honestly, I think the presence of Narset as an auto 4-of in every blue deck makes this a very playable card.

Oh sweet summer child...

Maybe you guys can hold out for them to print a judge promo with the old frame like they did with crucible. Only problem is it'll probably be foil.

Vintage for me is 0% aesthetics and 100% about being the format with the coolest toys. Manifold Key gets substituted in with the only questions being whether decks want 5-8 Keys and whether to diversify to avoid cards like Phyrexian Revoker.

@evouga said in [M20] Manifold Key:

@griselbrother Because Voltaic Key on its own is extremely narrow and not worth reprinting on its own in a Standard-legal set.

Before @Griselbrother gets one over on you, Voltaic Key was reprinted in M11. He just can't understand how the power dynamic of Magic could have possibly shifted in nine years.

Someone is also going to call the second ability useless trinket text as they add them over Voltaic Key to their Karn deck. They're playing a match and suddenly they realize they need to push through two damage against a battlefield littered with Monk tokens. They look at their Manifold Key. They look at their Grim Monolith. They look at Karn, the Great Creator's +1 ability. They scoop out of spite. Vintage.

@griselbrother said in [M20] Manifold Key:

I don't really get why they printed this card. It's just Voltaic Key with an additional benefit. Not sure what the point is.

You were the guy that got angry when they printed Ashcoat Bear.

This is not playable. "What If?" scenarios about how you'd develop the card is just Custom Magic with extra steps.

Manifold Key

Artifact
1, T: Untap another target artifact.

3, T: Target creature can't be blocked this turn.

"Locks want to be opened, and treasure wants to be free."
-Nayrex Slipfinger, master thief

I choose to call this strictly better than Voltaic Key, and the person that points at the word "another" is just being a pedant.
