Quote from toctheyounger77 »Sure, but how easy is it to get five artifacts on the field by the time you cast this? Even if you somehow miraculously don't its front side has some pros before it flips.
The only thing that warns me off saying it'll definitely get banned is that its two colours. If it were blue only, it'd be a slam dunk. As it is, there is only one known deck archetype that will definitely want it, and that's Breya or a partner artifact build. Maybe a marchesa artifact build, but that's pretty bespoke.
I think we can expect that there will be a UR Artificer printed *eventually*, given how much it's been clamored for. I've also built several iterations of Grixis Artifacts (Mishra Stax, Marchesa Arcbound), as well as a Shu-Yun Jeskai Artifacts list. So there's definitely places it'd shine.
Heck, I think the ability to tap for multiple blue mana on a single land makes this worth building a little towards in most UR builds.
