Glasses of Urza Discussion

Dreno33 on Walker of The Wastes (Pauper EDH)

1 week ago

Some suggestions...

  • Opal Palace - does a lot more in buffing Walker of the wastes than another wastes.

  • also, another amazing land has been printed as a common since then. Cradle of the Accursed :)

  • how often do you feel you get to 9 mana? Hand of Emrakul is the other big beater you are missing. annhilator in pauper seems good enough, haha.

  • if you still wanted an additional fatty to equip with evasion, Ruin Processor is the last biggest guy you are missing.

  • Vorrac Battlehorns is great that it forces your opponent to only ever block with one creature, which greatly accels your commander damage clock. Since it gives trample, you get to do the same strategy on any of your other beaters as a 2nd option.

  • Here's a big one in my opinion. run more cantrips. you want to be consistently hitting lands drops and getting to your key enchantments. in colorless, this is hard to do. cantrips really help turn through your deck to find those pieces you need to complete your strategy. here's a start: Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Conjurer's Bauble, Relic of Progenitus, Urza's Bauble, Astrolabe, Ichor Wellspring, Orazca Relic


Things i don't like in here...

  • Frogmite - a cheap, sometimes free 2/2? i would rather just run another cantrip effect like some i listed above.

  • Lens of Clarity - its a really cool effect, but i think Glasses of Urza does a much better job at the "information advantage" then the lens does. just my opinion.

  • Phyrexian Walker - again, i don't like running 0 cost things that do nothing on there own. run a ramp spell in place of it to get to your bigger bombs quicker. a 0/3 is not where you want to be, early or late.

  • Rusted Slasher - way too vulnerable and will never get a hit in. there are so many better 4 drops you should be playing, or again, replace with a cantrip. I would much rather play a cantrip into an equipment on t4 than this guy

  • Galvanic Key - neat trick, but i don't see this combat trick come up very often and colorless decks don't "fool" anyone when they leave up mana unless it is 7+ for scour mana.

Wizened Snitches seems too expensive at 4 cmc to me. I feel like Lantern of Insight could be good though. Who doesn't like 1 cmc cards that synergize with their commander? Searching in Gatherer has yielded some good results for cards like this. Glasses of Urza and Dakra Mystic are two that would work well I think.

Bxbx on Advice for Sen Triplets EDH?

Hi, fellow sen triplets player!

Here are some suggestions for your deck:

  • Sen Triplets draw so much hate that I'd advise you to put Winding Canyons in. This way you can flash the triplets in at the end of your opponents turn, so they don't have to survive one whole turn cause they almost never do

  • I do not play Mycosynth Lattice and Celestial Dawn because they take up two card slots. Instead I built my landbase in a way that it can produce two or three mana of any color more or less reliably in the lategame (with City of Brass, Rupture Spire, etc.)

  • Baleful Strix and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV are good creatures for esper. The arbiter reduces Sen Triplets cost by 2

  • I made the experience that Telepathy draws a lot of hate, too. People hate it to play with their hands revealed for the whole time. It creates an unpleasant game experience and often makes you a target. Instead I'd recommend Glasses of Urza. It does not make all of your opponents angry at you and additionaly it can be searched with Trinket Mage which makes your deck more consistent. And it can be searched with Tezzeret the Seeker whom you should add as well

  • my own deck is more creature focused and without combos. I really like cards like Silent-Blade Oni or Doomsday Specter there, but you probably do not run enough creatures to warrant their inclusion

  • if you're willing to go the more expensive route you should add Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor. Enlightened Tutor and Diabolic Tutor could leave for them

That's all for now. Let me know what you think!

Cool idea. I like it.

Glasses of Urza would be a good addition.

MagicGALAXY on Look Mom, No Hands!

Greetings! Like the deck you have and the advice you gave me for mine. Only things I'd change are the following:

1). Psychic Strike --> Propaganda

2). Darkwater Egg --> Prophetic Prism or some other draw-mana-fixing-rock.

3). Glasses of Urza --> something else, but if you need it for the flavor win, that's all good in my book :)

Thanks again for the advice GmT! Any questions on my reasoning, let me know. Take care.

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

Telepathy could work as glasses #2

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind might be an idea. Run cards like Thoughtseize, Ostracize, Mind Twist, etc to capitalize on Lazav's ability with the knowledge you've gained from Glasses of Urza

Steelspike on Best commander for...

Isperia the Inscrutable or Nebuchadnezzar seem like the most logical commanders for Glasses of Urza.

But, those commanders not withstanding, I would say anything that says "name a card", like Pithing Needle or that Phyrexian can't think of what it's called, but "the named card can't be played".

Or, any deck that you want to make sure the blue player doesn't have counter magic in hand to squash your plays.
