Shamen3mill on Competitive Uril: Just Let Me Win!

3 days ago

Swapping the three signets for the 3 other <=2 cost auras that attach onto lands (Trace of Abundance Utopia Sprawl and Fertile Ground) Makes you more dependent on green, but triggers more enchantress and gives you the full allotment of 3 colors as opposed to the 2 that the signets offer.Unless you've got people that are running enchantment wipes specifically for some reason, I don't see a reason not to. Most boardwipes that hit enchantments hit artifacts too.

In case you're wondering those four(including wild growth) are just about the only enchantments that do this to low enough standards ( <=2 mana and any color generation.). The only one I can suggest otherwise is Overgrowth which is a little deep at 3 mana, and only gives green.

Canopy Cover is also useful in an Uril deck where the playgroup is more used to Uril's presence. psuedo flying with redundant totally not hexproof to counter any Arcane Lighthouse or Glaring Spotlight that might've crept into your playgroup.

Herrosix on Boom, Crack, the Sound of Your Heart.

as for "crack fodder" these are the things I came up with as options

Memnite might be good doubles as blocker.

Tormod's Crypt is great graveyard hate that fills that role.

Altar of the Brood mills a bit

Avarice Totem might get them to play around itself.

Bomat Courier can fill hand back up if it survives or just sit as sac option.

Codex Shredder mill can help you or get something back later if need be.

Flayer Husk gives you 2 objects to sac from 1 mana.

Glaring Spotlight for help against boggles.

Locket of Yesterdays seems interesting.

Staff of Nin was too high of a mana cost for what it was worth to me at the time, but I'll think about it. What would you cut for it?

I have a Squee's Toy, and I'm considering adding it in place of Desert. Despite being a EDHrec mainstay of the deck, I just hate how restrictive desert is.

Instead of using Glaring Spotlight, which will be regularly targeted by the opponents that care about it, I decided to just play more boardwipes. I have very few problems dealing with creatures, no matter how many keywords you strap onto them.

I'm not sure why I haven't been playing tooth... instant speed AND repeatable, two of my favorite things. Will change this.

I previously played Dauthi Embrace, but BB for the target was a little too much for me since horobi will almost never live to see an untap phase. Mana is limited for that turn.

Staff of Nin provides great card advantage while at the same time providing a targeting ability. Might be a little expensive to cast, but it is often a 2-for-1 that keeps giving.

Squee's Toy is cheap and hilarious. Kill off your opponent's stuff with a squeeze doll.

Glaring Spotlight is another tool so that you can target your opponent's stuff. Also can be sacrificed when you need to get in that alpha strike or just protect your board.

Tooth of Chiss-Goria can be played at instant speed and sometimes for free for a truly nasty surprise.

Dauthi Embrace is another repeatable tool that combos with Horobi.

Great decklist! Always love seeing janky or less popular commanders given opportunity.

legendofa, does Crystalline Sliver + an additional Xenograft (or just name Changeling on xenograft) be able to stop Archetype of Endurance and/or Glaring Spotlight?

Instead of the sliver, you could also use Hanna's Custody, Fountain Watch, or Indomitable Archangel. The custody has the advantage of not dying to boardwipes.

chaosumbreon87 you can't kill your Aura Theif with those cards because they are activated abilities (Stony Silence). Even if you did, Rest in Peace would stop the trigger.

Oh okay, I guess I tunnel visioned on the ultimate of Dovin Baan. The +1 and -1 are both awesome in their own right, as you said. The unblockable thing makes sense, the only qualm I have with that is that I dont have too many commander's, but I do plan on putting some money into this deck. I think I just need some hexproofing to be honest. But im going to try to get better value out of it, like with Archetype of Endurance or Glaring Spotlight. Anything just to stop simple control spells from scrapping mu commander.

As you're running alot of Angels, i'd recommend Defy Death,

Ashnod's Altar and Evolutionary Leap are a few extra sacrifice outlets for you, using them in conjunction with an equipped Thornbite Staff can allow for some ridiculous shenanigans. There's also Glaring Spotlight, Bonds of Mortality and Arcane Lighthouse if you have trouble with hexproof and shroud blocking Rubina's effect :)

Good luck with the building! (I kinda want to make this myself now :P )
