this was probably already given. But given the way magic is handled in the world (www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0040.html) and the fact that multiple people assume that the arkentools are all aligned along the fate axis (predict, doll, change, think, sign, croak, carny, heal -/a/o/mancy, respectively) and the theory that vinny has about the tools canceling one another (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0022.html) is it possible that they can specifically cancel one another due to alignment along the life/motion/matter axis? for example the Arkendish which is Thinkamancy(allegedly) aligned, which is an Eyemancy, being life/motion aligned being directly opposed by the matter/motion axis one (Croakamancy in Naughtymancy)? or the arguably Stagemancy/ Carnymancy '-hammer being opposed by the Clevermancy/ Healomancy tool (stagemancy uses all three, clevermancy uses none). which means that the '-pliers may either be the counter to the archons or the dwagons due to what people extrapolate from in comic evidence. Feel free to blast me as much as you like on it.
