Just make sure you're playing Cosi's Trickster so you can have a plan B if you aren't drawing your traps.

Path to Exile is a good way to go, though they could choose not to get the land.

Here's a list of them which may or may not be playable, assuming a Legacy banlist.

Acquire
Bribery
Grinning Totem
Head Games
Hide//Seek
Jester's mask
Life's Finale
Mimeofacture
Praetor's Grasp
Slaughter Games


This list is pretty obviously incomplete, but should give you some idea of what direction to look in.

Cards like Bribery and Slaughter Games actually don't turn on the alternate cost of Archive Trap since that requires that the opponent search his or her library, while those cards say that you search the library. They do trigger Cosi's Trickster, though.

as pg8 rightly said. All the cards suggested by xJudicatorx cause YOU to search their library and so don't impact Archive Trap.

The only examples I can find are Malaren, Collective Voyage and Fertilid which have already been mentioned and then the more creative options such as Hive Mind and search effects of your own.

Lol, if you can get a hive mind in play, why in the world would you be using search effects to turn on Archive trap? Razz

You aren't right about path. It's about cards that force a player to search their library. Path gives them a choices


Well, can you think of a better spell to play than a 1cc instant exile with no drawbacks?
