Fountain of Youth Discussion

TheMazter13 on Urza EDH

There are quite a few 0 Mana equipment cards that do more than Paradise Mantle .

Accorder's Shield , Cathar's Shield , Spidersilk Net , and Bone Saw all cost 0 to play while also having the possibility to help out Urza. Especially with the shields; if we want Urza to be efficient, he's gotta stay on the board.

Also, these artifacts can tap for mana while equipped and they do a lot more than the other 0 mana artifacts you have. Darksteel Relic does literal nothing, Fountain of Youth is awful in any format I'd say, and cards like Spellbook cost 0 but don't expect them to do much else.

Tormod's Crypt is probably fine, especially with some kind of recursion, same with Herbal Poultice and Mishra's Bauble . The only recursion I see is Emry though, so maybe add some. Also with recursion, you get access to Mindslaver which, with just 1 activation, can be back-breaking for your opponent. Getting to loop Mind Slaver also just wins the game because if your opponent can't stop it, they can't play anymore

Winter Orb and Static Orb is interesting. I'm trying to think of a way to make it so it only affects your opponents. Maybe I don't see it, but the only way I can think is to tap it on the previous player's end-step, then, at the end of your turn, untap it with something. That something, from what I see, is Unwinding Clock . That's only one card, maybe add Voltaic Key because even outside of this synergy it's pretty good.

Apart from Urza's ability, you don't have much payoff for turning everything into a Mox Sapphire. The top of your curve has so few cards, and some of them don't just win on the spot. Time Stretch is a good one, but Darksteel Forge , while good, isn't something we want to pay 9 for and it just keeps the game going, not actually winning on its own. I do see Arcum Dagsson , but, again, 1 in 99 cards and blue has 0 creature tutors. Blightsteel Colossus is the only easy win card, but it still has to get through and attack and it could get exiled

Maybe Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to draw into more spells. A part of dumping your hand of 0 mana artifacts is that you need to draw more cards to play off all these supposed Mox Sapphires. Bunch of mana and nothing to do with it. Jin-Gitaxias helps this by drawing 7 every turn

You could even play Eldrazi. All the Titans, or even It That Betrays or Desolation Twin , can win games easily. Getting to Mindslaver someone with a 13/13 in play, drawing cards just for fun, exiling and destroying permanents, or just stealing your opponent's board can all win games very easily. Annihilator is also just a busted mechanic on its own.

Cool deck!

Some suggestions(though the deck looks fun already!:D)

Fountain of Youth is a free drop, Braidwood Cup (also see Marble Chalice for a colored version) is the opposite- costs 3 to drop, but guarantees you trigger at least a counter on Karlov every turn. Skullmead Cauldron does the same but with an extra buff.

Alternatively, Pristine Talisman gives you the same thing for a few more cents and doubles as a mana rock :D

High Market got reprinted so it's super cheap now, Pious Kitsune gives you another white tap-to-gain-life. Druidic Satchel is good stuff that gets you life as well.Filigree Familiar is Solemn Simulacrum's cheaper pet.

I could suggest, instead of playing those expensive artifacts, Astral Cornucopia, Briber's Purse, Chimeric Mass, Everflowing Chalice, Fountain of Youth, or even Orochi Hatchery.

Doesn't life gain make it harder to lose? Fountain of Youth and Claws of Gix still seem too powerful.
