Golden Urn Discussion

Generally, its a set of 1CMC sideboard answers as 1-ofs (in the maindeck), things like Nihil Spellbomb, Pithing Needle or Golden Urn alongside Artificer's Intuition and Trash for Treasure. It lets you reliably throw out relevant speedbump cards and put big stuff (and dead cards) in the graveyard. Used to run it back with Sundering Titan a long while ago- might be some old primers around for the more casual mirrodin lists that people were tweaking.

Budget sideboard reccomendations- 1 duress, four Despise, four Cry of Contrition, three Wrench Mind and three Languish/Mutilate. Just update your hate to match your opponent. In burn metas, you might want Golden Urn or w/e.
Looking to even out your manabase without breaking the bank? Grixis Panorama is almost playable, and there are various taplands with upsides.

I'm not a fan of mindcrank without Bloodchief Ascension. It almost never pays off, and so many decks want cards in their graveyard you can get punished pretty hard. Jamming Rakdos Charm maindeck can offset some of that, but giving your opponent card advantage is a real risk. Burning inquiry carries similar problems, and without you running lots of cards that want to be in your graveyard, will likely help your opponent more than you.
I'm guessing this started as a delayed damage Emberwilde Augur Insult Rift Bolt list, possibly including Flame of Keld, which then morphed into a Waste Not variant. Its a fun idea- I've never made it work without it becoming a different deck.
First things first, if you want a damage/discard hybrid deck, you need to decide- how important is the discard? Is the this the rack, or is it a burn deck with blightnings?
If your meta has aggro decks that typically only have 1 card in hand turn four, a lot of discard is wasted. If its all control, then you'll want to be jamming as much as you possibly can just to keep from being locked out of the game. The big thing is that with fifteen cards sideboard, you can pack in 11 copies of duress variants and 4 shrieking afflictions. The sideboard is there to adapt you to your meta- whether that be by jamming silver bullet answers or completely changing your strategy in response. Just by swapping Lightning Bolt alikes for Duress you completely change the pace and playstyle of your deck.
I have a big list of mono black cards I use for brews here Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox, in particular Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper- both net you more cards in a way that red struggles with, and in a pinch can finish off someone on five life with lighting bolt.
Elixir of immortality is cute. Personally, I prefer Sun Droplet or the new Fountain of Renewal, and sometimes Golden Urn. Shuffling the graveyard back in is usually a disadvantage outside of 'draw your deck' combos.
Finally, remember to build something that is fun to play. Its all well and good knowing the 'best' option, but if it ain't fun, it ain't worth it. So always keep that in mind when choosing cards.
(edit- also just maindeck angrath. He locks a player out of the game like lilana and doesn't break the bank)

Ok, so, it's been a while, sorry
Dominaria replaced my commander and with that a number of the cards changed as well, not a lot, but a few:
In: Muldrotha, the Gravetide *CMDR - Crown of Ascension - Dark Sphere - Font of Fertility - Garruk, Caller of Beasts - Golden Urn - Kiora, Master of the Depths - Pernicious Deed - Warped Landscape (and I also found extra copies of Herald's Horn and Solemn Simulacrum to add to the deck.

Blue Wizards: Crafty Pathmage, Frontline Sage, Grixis Illusionist, Stream of Unconsciousness. Tideshaper Mystic, Prodigal Sorcerer, Trinket Mage could search for the "holy hand-grenade":Explosive Apparatus or any of the spell bombs. Trinket Mage could also search for the "holy grail": Golden Urn!

Im thinking Im going to replace the Droplet with Golden Urn, Implement of Improvement, or one of the gain 1 life when a player casts a [color] spell artifacts. Any suggestions for which of those is better?

First off thank you for the upvotes!
Really like what you did here. My playgroup is starting to get into PEDH and this is a fantastic starting point for me. I haven't played any PEDH yet so I am not sure how heavy spot removal is available in these kinds of decks. Would something like Icatian Moneychanger, Martyr of Sands, Augur il-Vec, Lone Missionary, Qarsi Sadist, Shu Farmer, Vault Skirge, Scholar of Athreos, Silent Attendant, Benediction of Moons, Death Watch, Golden Urn, Scent of Jasmine and a number of White "Gain X Life" spells fit?
I'm guessing card draw eventually becomes the main problem for this deck and you go into top-deck mode.
Any advice would be great, really looking forward to giving this a try.
