Step 1: Play Rite of Replication and choose to pay the kicker on Archaeomancer

Step 7: Activate Ursapine's special ability five times on your original Archaenomancer (the one without summoning sickness, making him a 6/7)

Step 8: Attack with Archaenomancer to win

    Considering the when you copy the forests with rite of replication and then are unable to use them as lands until you destroy nature's revolt is confusing and stupid. Either they are copied as lands that you can use as such without destroying nature's revolt or they are just creatures and when you destroy nature's revolt they stay on there as creatures. Not turn into lands. WTF!

    Unless summoning sickness somehow makes it so you can't use their land abilities but all it says is you can't use abilities with the tap symbol. NO TAP SYMBOL ON LAND ABILITIES.

    here's an easier way (though it doesn't work on the computer cuz it's flawed apparently): Volition reins on ursapine and rite of replication with kicker on forest

    So natures revolt is out and the lands are no longer lands? Just creatures? Because if they were lands too they should tap as lands, its these little detail rules that make it nearly impossible to figure out. Unless your the creator

    I'm not really sure where you're getting that since the five forests you summon, which would be subject to summoning sickness, are turned back into just regular forests when Nature's Revolt is destroyed in step 6. Once they're regular forests they should no longer be subject to summoning sickness and then be usable to pump up Archaeomancer in Step 7. Or was there another area this comes into play?

    Specifically this part: 8/1/2008

    A noncreature permanent that turns into a creature is subject to the "summoning sickness" rule: It can only attack, and its {T} abilities can only be activated, if its controller has continuously controlled that permanent since the beginning of his or her most recent turn.

    Meaning this game fucking cheats. And I'm quite happy to point it out.

    That was my first play, and I didn't bother trying to activate ursine's ability because i was thinking NEAT, 5 DRYAD ARBORS, LOL SS.... etc. 40 minutes later I have to come here, and question myself. And then find out that the game itself is flawed, fun fun fun.
