ClockworkSwordfish on Uril, the Miststalker

While it's true that you can share Dragon Fangs around, I think it's much more important that you be able to enchant Uril. For this reason, Talons of Wildwood is probably a better choice - it can come back just as easily as your commander can. Setessan Training is also intriguing for replacing itself.

Speaking of cantrips, I would also recommend Psychotic Fury over something like Rush of Blood or Assault Strobe. Shielded by Faith is likewise probably preferable over Indestructibility - how often do you expect you'll be enchanted something other than Uril? None too often, I'd wager.

SwiftDeath Open the Armory is a great tutor, especially for this deck. I was going to put it in but I just haven't found the room. I feel like keeping tutors to a minimum because, while I have the Shielded by Faith combo in my deck, I'm not looking to combo out super fast every game. Most of the time I don't even tutor for the combo. It's mostly there for when games are going on a bit too long. Might swap out Heliod's Pilgrim for Open the Armory

Hey, consider enchantment tutors? Enlightened Tutor, Sterling Grove, Idyllic Tutor, even Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim for auras. Consider Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and Shielded by Faith? This combo would give you an alternative win condition that has synergy with the rest of your deck since Faith is fine with Rafiq. Sovereigns of Lost Alara + Eldrazi Conscription is good late game interaction with Rafiq.

I think lots of spells that only pump Rafiq once is wasting a lot of spots in your deck. Other than Berserk as well as Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense which are also protection, the other spells could be cut especially the sorceries for cards that give repeatable pump/abilities, more draw, protection/opponent disruption.

Other cards to consider adding:

Farseek and Nature's Lore can get dual lands making them land ramp spell upgrades for Rampant Growth and Kodama's Reach.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Stealth Mission
  • Phytoburst
  • Larger Than Life
  • Artful Dodge
  • Arrester's Zeal
  • Giant Growth
  • Groundswell
  • Infiltrate
  • Might of Old Krosa
  • Mutagenic Growth
  • Crypsis
  • Veil of Secrecy
  • Might of Oaks
  • Emerald Medallion
  • Sapphire Medallion

Good luck with your deck.

Ravenrose on They See My Auras, and Tokens

Karametra, God of Harvests is a good addition to this deck. You should perhaps also consider one of the Nylea cards as well. Managorger Hydra, Polukranos, World Eater are two worthy considerations; Greek mythology plus Renata's counter ability. Archon of Sun's Grace should also be in this deck. Daxos, Blessed by the Sun works well with your tokens. Season of Growth may also be of use to you. Destiny Spinner should also be considered. The First Iroan Games may also be worthy to consider. Sol Ring is a must in Commander (unfortunately). Setessan Champion is must. Bronzehide Lion is a creature and eventually an Aura. Staggering Insight is useful here too.

Shielded by Faith can make Siona go infinite. Hydra's Growth and Ethereal Armor are also worthy Auras.

Hope this helps! You're welcome to check out some of my decks too. I do need some help with Cthulu Mythos and Keep Out of my Castle.

GoldenGolgari on Uril, the Monster of the Mists ( $50-ish Budget )

Hey, just wanted to say thanks, you're the reason I brought this deck in real life and I'm quite liking it in my current playgroup. Also, I wanted to offer some suggestions from the new set, Sentinel's Eyes seems really good for 1 mana attach from hand or graveyard and Destiny Spinner works like a poor mans Grand Abolisher/Vexing Shusher for this type of deck. Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is also pretty good as it goes infinite with Shielded by Faith for a backup win-con, not to mention that 3 mana for a 2/2 body that digs 7 cards deep for an aura when it ETBs isn't bad either. Thanks again and let me know what you think!
