Drakorya on Is Urza's Blueprints a Good ...

8 months ago

I feel like there's probably two types of deck that Urza's Blueprints could be good in: big mana decks that lack alot of good card draw (like mono-green Azusa, Lost but Seeking ), or decks that look to use/abuse activated abilities of artifacts with cards like Rings of Brighthearth and Voltaic Key .

I think the card could really shine if you can take advantage of not having to pay mana into it's activation cost, by either untapping it repeatedly or copying the ability. But it would lead to alot of feel-bad moments when you devote 12 mana into it just for it to eat a removal spell. You could try to cheat on the costs with cards like Mairsil, the Pretender or Myr Welder .

@Yesterday: Huh. Well, another idea for a cut I guess; & yes, I did reconsider Mirror of Fate & it's back onto the deck. I suppose Myr Welder does deserve a cut, huh... Plotting to set a Doomsday package; w/ the Obligitory Laboratory Maniac , but I'll decide myself on this; sometimes Just Decking out is a better risk than... well, you know. I'd add Door to Nothingness , but that's maybe too much. Regardless, The Myr gets kicked.

Oh. One minor thing about Myr Welder and linked abilities. Maybe you know this already.

When a card refers to 'the exiled card' or something similar, it usually is part of an ability linked with that one. So if you have a Legacy Weapon exiled under your Myr Welder and resolve the WUBRG ability, though the targeted permanent is exiled with the Welder, the Welder's second ability won't grant it the activated abilities of the newly exiled permanent because it wasn't exiled with the Welder's linked first ability. Similarly, if you have a Bag of Holding exiled with the Welder, using the self-sacrifice ability granted from the bag won't actually return any cards to your hand, because none of the cards exiled with the Welder have been exiled with the bag's linked triggered ability.

I found this very disappointing when I first found out.

I'm afraid there's nothing that causes only your opponents' ETBs not to trigger. At least that I know of. If you wanted, you could use some effects like Roon or Eerie Interlude that exile your Hushwing Gryff until end of turn. There are somewhat fewer of these effects for non-creatures though.

Recurring from exile isn't super common. I'm not sure I have much to help you with there, sorry. I can suggest a few cards that otherwise fit the theme and are decent value.

The new Apostle of Purifying Light is kinda basically a better Withered Wretch.

Myr Welder plays with exile a bit and can help recur some abilities from your graveyard while exiling them. It can also grab pieces that help it combo from opponents' graveyards if the stars align. There's also Mairsil, the Pretender .

It's not exile-related, but Phyrexian Dreadnought is one of the best classic examples of amazing value except for ETB.

I don't... know exacty what you're planning on doing with Mirror of Fate, but you might want to consider Doomsday too.

A few other cards that do things with exile include Mana Severance for thinning out your deck, and Yawgmoth's Will and Magus of the Will because I am seeing a decent bit of graveyard recursion in here too. You probably already know Necropotence exists. Bag of Holding just loots and plays with exile... sort of, but you can put the cards you discard under it even if Necropotence is on the battlefield. Worldgorger Dragon is... a card. But I'm probably just delving into territory you already know about from searches now.

Also, it doesn't really do anything especially for the deck, and it's silver-bordered but I feel obliged to mention AWOL .

I love the idea for the deck. How has it been performing for you?

God, cloning is such a fun mechanic, and I think you're onto something with this one! Still, some advice:

  • Did you choose to add white in order to use Feather, the Redeemed ? I feel like I don't see too much in white for your theme, and your own deck doesn't feature too much white at the moment either. As has been mentioned, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is sort of a more interesting commander for a copy theme, though your current deck includes a lot of instant/sorcery copies, which isn't quite Brudiclad's deal. I like red/blue/black for a token situation as well, with black including a lot of cool copy effects (and a lot of them can be purchased with the dimir guildkit.)

  • There are some really bizarre pseudo-copy cards I like a lot as well. Myr Welder is a personal favorite; it doesn't create copy tokens, but it does give you a sort of "copy of another creature" sort of card.

  • Have you looked into the myriad cards? Myriad is a fun way to create copies. Blade of Selves is the least effort involving one, and can be pretty amazing.

I feel like Ashnod's Altar could be Krark-Clan Ironworks instead. Every creature is already an artifact and it opens up some infinite mana combos too.

Krark-Clan Ironworks + Scrap Trawler + Myr Retriever + Everflowing Chalice/Tormod's Crypt/Sol Ring/Basalt Monolith/Thran Dynamo

I love Myr Welder btw, not enough people realize how awesome that dude is.

I'm loving the Myr Welder combos, now I have an excuse to run Staff of Domination in my Colourless EDH deck, Cheers bro.

Cleared out the sideboard (it had the cards I had previously removed from the deck in it) and turned the sideboard into the short list of things I want to add. Currently thinking of removing:

Hellraiser Goblin, Myr Welder, Disciple of Bolas, Corpse Connoisseur, Carrion Feeder, Diabolic Tutor, Doomsday, Increasing Ambition, Skullclamp
