PepsiAddicted what's your take on Mystic Forge ?

@ zero2581 When it comes to Mystic Forge for Urza decks I don't think it really provides enough value to be utilized over something like Future Sight which would have less narrow restrictions on what can be played from the top of the library. The tap ability would be interesting as a means of setting up the top card of the library for Urza to avoid, say, a land, but unfortunately Urza requires a library shuffle for his second ability activation. Ultimately Mystic Forge most likely just won't be worth the card slot due to the expected return values being negligible at best.

How has Confirm Suspicions been performing for you? Wouldnt you rather have a cheaper counterspell? Or is its ramp/draw later utility so great it doesn't matter if its a dead card early?

with urza that spell says "counter target spell, put 3 untapped islands into play". thats stronger than having another cheap counter. and even early cmc5 isnt too hard to cast. this is not a cc all draw go deck anyway
