Can Mycosynth Lattices effect affect your graveyard?

hkhssweiss on Uril ramp/control

sriah001 Hmm I know you said that a few goals of yours are to control the board through Wraths, but what about just making Uril a huge enough threat where that doesn't matter.

Some card draws I can think right off the bat for Uril are Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Commune with Lava, Hunter's Insight, Sage's Reverie, Sixth Sense, and Keen Sense.

If your going for more of an enchantress type build there are other card drawing options in terms of Enchantress's Presence, Sram, Senior Edificer, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress.

Some general cards I would recommend for Uril as well would be: Rancor, Shielded by Faith, Messenger's Speed, Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, and Spirit Mantle.

Hope that helps!

Shielded by Faith is a straight upgrade of Indestructibility.

Some cards I find very valuable in my Uril build are:

Cartouche of Strength, which doubles as removal and a solid +3/+3 trample buff to Uril. If there's an annoying creature that's less than 8 toughness, it's dying, lol.

Another card to not sleep on is Tilonalli's Crown, which gives Uril a whopping +5/+2 and trample for only 1R. Similarly, Madcap Skills gives Uril +5/+2 and menace which is pretty reasonable evasion (turning him into a 10 powered beast is pretty huge).

Shielded by Faith is one of my favorites. You can slap it down on something silly before you get to 5 mana in order to cast Uril (I've put it on Birds of Paradise on turn 2, then t3'd Uril and moved the aura to him). It's not as powerful as Shield of the Oversoul but it is still pretty powerful and flexible due to the fact that once Uril becomes hexproof and indestructible, the number of cards that can answer him drops dramatically (requiring things like Cyclonic Rift, Merciless Eviction, Hallowed Burial, etc., instead of just any old Wrath of God clone).

Chandra's Ignition is a card I've found fairly amusing and it may be very powerful in your meta. Dealing 12 to all opponents and their creatures is a fantastic way to open up the field to swing in and attack.

Impending Disaster- this card seems janky, and it probably is a little bit, but it's a great card to windmill slam the turn after casting Uril. This + an aura typically makes opponents scramble, and it either does one of two things: It forces them to spend removal on it, instead of the aura on Uril (or Uril himself by casting a Wrath or something), or it causes all lands to go to the graveyard. Either way, you wind up with a big creature on board and happiness in your heart.

Burgeoning or Exploration- I run both, but one of these would probably be huge as either one could enable t3 Uril which is typically where you want to be.

I recommend removing:

Spectra Ward. I originally ran this too, but it causes a problem: It has to be the last aura you put on Uril, or else you can't target him to put any more auras on him. It's more than a little problematic considering Uril already has reasonable protection with his inherent hexproof, and there's plenty more auras that give evasion for a lower cost.

Serra's Embrace is pretty much worse than Tilonalli's Crown.

Entangler- You want Uril to be attacking, not held back to be a blocker. Unless you give him vigilance, this card isn't worth it as it doesn't help his offensive capabilities as much as other cards (and all you really want to do is smack someone in the face with him until they exit the game lol).

Avacyn, Angel of Hope- She just costs way too much. By the time you can cast her, you should have a couple of dead opponents already.

Faith's Reward- you already run Replenish and Retether. This one is a little bit too much. If you're afraid of board wipes, Boros Charm is substantially more flexible, can be used through graveyard hate, etc., and is much cheaper to boot.

Mayael's Aria- if you have a 20 power creature, you should have won the game already anyway. I find this card incredibly redundant and its first two abilities aren't worth spending the 3 mana for.

Anyway, hope this helps. Uril's one of my favorites.

Here's my list, for reference: Uril: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti

I understand what you mean for protecting your setup; the most efficient way is probably with Teferi's Protection, especially if you happen to already own one. I would replace Fanatical Devotion with Shielded by Faith. I would also consider Darksteel Plate and Hammer of Nazahn.

I had missed the interaction of Gift of Immortality with Fertilid, good call.

I understand the point about "instant win", but in my opinion this one isn't abusive. I hope your group will agree!

Shielded by Faith? Love that card, and is incredibly on theme with the deck. Sun Titan isn't here either. I mean it just always earns its deck slot in a white EDH deck, its value can't be denied. The former fits under the latter exquisitely too :)

ghostfire86 on Uril, Stalker of Mists

This build is definitely a nice one. Things I think you should add:

Creatures:

Sigarda, Host of Herons-Prevent force sac. If this is out of budget for the moment, then use Tajuru Preserver.

Auras:

Shielded by Faith-Indestructible is better protection than Totem Armor and can be moved from Enchantress creature to Uril later when ETB.

Draw:

Sram, Senior Edificer-Better than Eidolon of Blossoms and works well with equips you've added to your list.

Tutors:

Sterling Grove-Secondary function is shroud for your enchantments

Eladamri's Call-Instant tutor to hand for creature needed like an enchantress creature.

Things that I question:

Greater Good-Draw potential is definitely there, but due to commander tax and inability to haste Uril, other than Xenagos, on next play followed up with Replenish or Retether, I don't see this being overtly useful. The massive card draw potential this deck has also has me question the ability to drop multiple spells per turn with constraints to hand size limit of 7 cards. Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel would solve that issue for you.

Runes of the Deus-Don't get me wrong, this is a great card for Uril, but I question it in any competitive build for him. At 5 cmc it seems to much to create an overwhelming play without proper openings. Great for 1 shot, too much for clean sweep after proper set up has been gained, if you understand what I'm speaking of. It's kind of like how Eldrazi Conscription is a great 1 shot, but afterwards the remaining players in the group will cast global effects to prevent use on them. Keep in mind that sac effects get past totem armor, protection, and indestructible.
