Cycling (, Discard this card: Draw a card.)

interesting deck idea however it definitely needs some big help
you are running WAY too many mana rocks.. you should have maybe 15 max. all you are doing is diluting your deck with bad topdecks. coldsteel heart , charcoal diamond, marble diamond, firemind vessel are far too slow for competitive
You should consider adding a counterspell suite in lieu of the removed mana rocks. how are you running a blue 'competitive' deck with no counterspells? You should at least run swan song , dispel, and negate at minimum.
consulate crackdown is a slow and bad card (and cant be fetched by zur) and should be removed for Chain of Vapor . if you really want to remove all the artifacts you should play Rebuild ( also why you shouldnt have so many mana rocks). I get that crackdown is one sided however someone will just Nature's Claim it or similar and you will have wasted a whole turn
aether gale is a bad card and should be Cyclonic Rift
if you want to make mana without lands than i suggest you run Smothering Tithe which is a much better enabler for your shenanigans than anything else youre running

@ Tanukiboi I'm rethinking my approach to Urza with the PE ban and I'd already started some preliminary testing on a more storm oriented variant, so my list is firmly in the "work in progress" stage. Especially since almost 100 games of playtesting is out the window with the PE ban. That being said, I don't necessarily think Urza is a deck that one absolutely has to shell out multiple thousands of dollars to turn into something moderately competitive. There's no real need for things like Candelabra in it as those types of lines are usually already back up lines and High Tide isn't the most effective way to generate lots of mana with Urza (he just needs any random artifacts). It's totally possible to run a bunch of janky cards (like Ichor Wellspring ) that actually help Urza do it's thing using lines with Rebuild , Retract and the like. Even a budgeted, tuned down list with a well crafted gameplan and efficient synergistic card choices is going to be fairly potent. I will say that with PE out of the picture for no budget lists the Mystic Forge or Future Sight combo with Sensei's Divining Top is very likely to be the best option for a backup primary game plan to go along side Dramatic/Scepter combo.

Added to New Set Considerations:
Having troubles updating the updates section at the moment (technical) otherwise I'd have more to tell. To sum it up; Maybe board has been removed to save space, made a copy of OG list and made changes here to reflect what has been working in the test version. Those change have not been made yet to the primer though.

I'm not sure what kind of budget you're looking at, so I'm going to try to keep from suggesting anything too up there.
I'd swap out Purphoros for Reckless Fireweaver . You'll probably end up doing the same amount of damage, but I've found it paints less of a target on you. And Riddlesmith can give you an effect that's similar to Jhoira's, if you want the redundancy.
Stoic Rebuttal is at best Counterspell , and at worst no better than Cancel , so I would just run Counterspell. I know you'll have the Metalcraft 99% of the time, but other than flavor there's no reason to use it instead.
One of the nice things about this deck is how little color mana you need, so I'd upgrade your lands. Since you're running two artifact lands you may as well add in Darksteel Citadel too. Buried Ruin is great for any artifact heavy deck. And Ash Barrens , Grixis Panorama , and Shivan Reef can help color fix for you without slowing you down or hurting you too much. You only have four potential triggers (plus I guess two more for the X spells you have) for Sanctum of Ugin , so I would run another tutor over it, but that's a personal preference. I would also swap out more Mountains for Islands, since your deck is blue heavy, but if you don't have any problems with the ratio then don't worry about it.
Hope some of this was helpful!

Nice choice, Brutal_B! I'll definitely check out the deck. I'm also wondering about some kind of mill- and graveyard-flavored 0- and 1-drop artifact/egg deck with Rebuild and the like to build up the storm count late game.

legacys allure seems weak here, its a horrible topdeck when you need an answer. I get why it is good if you get it say turn 1 or 2 but after that its pretty bad. You should probably replace it with something more useful like Hurkyl's Recall or even Rebuild
