Really shuts down those mono-color decks.
Good luck, i love tribal decks. The more unusually the better.

It doesn't actually, as theres no black mana symbols. Urborg is technically colorless and usable for any and every deck.

Building out my deck and the walk abilities (swampwalk, islandwalk, etc) were very nice, if you are leaning into those might want to think about adding Magical Hack or Whim of Volrath . That way no matter what deck your friends are playing, you should be able to swing in unopposed.

Hey thanks for the detailed comment! I see what you're saying with some of those cards, the main reason I'm not running Whim of Volrath and similar cards is because, while they're great for making my hate cards more generic, they only change the text, which doesn't affect cards in the same way as the Blind Seer. They were in the deck at some point but were cut to raise the power level, replaced for things like Consecrated Sphinx.
Vodalian Mystic was unfortunately cut for similar reasons.
Paradox Engine is a huge target that might save my staxy artifacts from being targeted but I personally dislike it for this deck, mostly because the lack of infinite combos make it only "alright" in my mind. If I play it and win, it's a wincon but if I play it and nothing much happens except the deck stax harder, which I fear will happen frequently, it will feel dead or unwanted while in hand. Meanwhile, I could use that slot for more silly colour shenanigans. So personal preference but, again, thank you for your well thought out and interesting comment!

Whim of Volrath, Alter Reality, Glamerdye or Swirl the Mists or the like for some of those enchantments - love the green / red hate being put to good use. Wrath of Marit Lage might also work well with them, and Llawan, Cephalid Empress as well.
Since you are running Telepathy, Planeswalker's Mischief might be up your alley. It's slow, and it's random, but it can massively f*ck up an opponent's plan, and it draws hate away from other permanents you might wish to keep.
Vodalian Mystic and Painter's Servant (not sure painter's servant is still banned, need to check that out after this post) will help with the activation costs of your general, as will Training Grounds
Scrying Sheets. If you are running all snow islands, run this to smooth out your draws. that, and Extraplanar Lens will allow you to net extra without giving any to your opponents. I see you're already running it, so props there.

Also I'll see what I can swap in to focus more on Wrexial. I know equipment for sure, how about card draw like Night's Whisper?
Thanks for the suggestions and input!
