Confirm Suspicions Discussion
3 months ago
I've been 5hinking, since this deck is heavily token based, what are you usually tutoring and/or recuring from the graveyard? There's great utility with daretti and co, but there's no artifact that ends the game right there or is a huge threat all by itself. I guess what I mean is, how do you approach the game when you got tutors and/or recur engines available?
Also, for the control aspect, while there's a bunch of staples, a lot of them don't synergise all that. Have you concidered gettin control stuff that also adds tokens like Bake into a Pie, Spell Swindle, Confirm Suspicions, and others? And/or, using artifact based blinks like Voyager Staff or Tawnos's Coffin, or more artifact based control like Spine of Ish Sah, Duplicant, or a bunch of others.
Gosh, so many options, it'll take a while for me to decide how to actually build my version.

Hey man this is a sweet deck! I just made an Urza deck too, looking for suggestions to improve it without breaking the bank.

Do you have Sai in there twice?

How has Confirm Suspicions been performing for you? Wouldnt you rather have a cheaper counterspell? Or is its ramp/draw later utility so great it doesn't matter if its a dead card early?

One of the regulars at my local game store has a brudiclad deck and I was hoping to get some new tech for him but it seems his is a little farther down the tuning road than yours, not to be rude or anything. I'd like to suggest some amazing hits in his deck like Inferno Titan and Frost Titan . And making a token copy of Timestream Navigator apparently just wins the game for you. He also runs counterspell that help his game plan like Confirm Suspicions and Spell Swindle . Finally, on a note that doesn't have anything to do with improving your deck, as for bling, this is my favorite art of Negate , it looks really good in foil

The deck would probably be better with a budget check/tango land base rather than mono-blue, but Polymorph is better, as it can be used to replace (sometimes) the removal spells lost when moving to this mono-blue list.
That is still a problem though, as you need token generators. Creature tokens in blue aren't impossible, thopters exist, but the cheaper ones might not be the best, as you can't flip a creature, which is commonly what the thopter is tacked onto.
You could go Shape Anew, which is a cheaper card, and run a more mono-blue control feel to the deck, with Confirm Suspicions and Press for Answers as good cards that make tokens, which also can be used for card advantage need be. The issue there is removal, which might be able to be dealt with using bounce/counter, but is more probably dealt with by toying around with stalling/counter, using tap effects or a little bounce to back it up.
Up to you though!

This is a really cool idea for a deck.
May I suggest Mechanized Production and Faerie Artisans for extra creation of artifact tokens. Personally, I find Faerie Artisans fun because you get your opponent's stuff and if you can duplicate the tokens you get to keep them. I bet you have already considered this, but Saheeli Rai could be good even for just her -2. Rootborn Defenses could be good since it can protect your big artifact creatures from board wipes and removal. You could also play Curse of Opulence, Confirm Suspicions, Brass's Bounty, Revel in Riches and/or Spell Swindle as cards that make tokens that are already artifacts.
I hope my suggestions are helpful and sorry if I suggest any cards that are already in the deck I tried to double check them. :)
