Uril is Heavy Weapons Guy, and This Deck is his Weapon of Combos

This deck has been a labor of love since 2010 and was one of my first EDH decks. It has evolved through innumerable revisions to its present state.

Uril is the Miststalker so I feel like he should have had some evasion. Not only is he hard to see (Hexproof), but he should be able to sneak up on you with an ability like Intimidate. Not really relevant, just my thoughts on flavor.

This deck starts with the basic Voltron build but extends into the Maverick + Lands + Enchantress game plan longterm. There are tons of enchantress effects to fuel multiple cantrips off of each enchantment spell I cast.

Favorite combos:

1.Cloudstone Curio Combos:

2.Amulet of Vigor + Thawing Glaciers + Stone-Seeder Hierophant to get all the basics out of the deck by untapping the Glaciers with every trigger from SSH. Add in Emeria Shepherd and that's why there's no Replenish currently in the deck.

3.Defense of the Heart + Emeria Shepherd + Karametra, God of Harvests. Sac the DoH to get the two creatures and then cast any other creature to get DoH back to play by fetching a plains with the Karametra trigger. Repeat every turn to get all creatures out of the deck.

4.Wheel of Sun and Moon can be used to screw opponents with graveyard strategies out of their plans but more interestingly it can be used to keep putting lands or other cards on the bottom of the library in case the library gets too small because of the cantripping.

5.Sun Titan + Seal of Primordium or Aura of Silence to keep destroying artifacts or enchantments.

I am not personally interested in making the most expensive deck possible; I much prefer making interesting and novel decks (which I think this is in many respects). This deck has been a personal art project really from 2011-present and was one of my first decks ever. The cards in it are chosen as much for their beauty and art as they are for the themes and functions. Also, the price of the deck is hilariously incorrect by several $1000s as it doesn't take the right price for the specific printing in most cases or just has no price at all for paper (e.g. Gaea's Cradle , Mountain . and Forest ).

Note on why there's no Primal Surge in this deck

Many people have suggested Primal Surge since I named this deck Oops! All Permanents. If I had it then this deck wouldn't be all permanents would it? And playing Primal Surge just makes all the hard work of doing all the combos kind of moot. A better explanation even is that if I cast the Surge, then I wouldn't get all the cast triggers for Sigil of the Empty Throne to make angels and I would be committed to win somehow that turn because I would have nothing left in my library so I would lose on my next draw step and wouldn't be able to cast any more enchantments from my hand because all my enchantress effects would be in play. So please don't suggest Primal Surge or any other non-permanents.

Straight dope.

I've got a buddy who cobbled an Uril deck together from his bulk boxes when he was a poor masters student. This list will be some serious inspiration for him now that he's got a job!

Your Plateau alter is fucking incredible too. Cheers!

Thanks for the kind words. This deck has been a labor of love so I really appreciate it. The Plateau and other two ABU dials are actually a panorama of a single scene when placed next to each other. I had the artist, Marta Molina, add Uril to the middle, standing in the mist and it was incredible because I'd never imagined him being as big as the mountain range but if you look at his art there's really no familiar object for reference. He could actually be that big! Best of luck to your friend.

Truly a thing of beauty! And yes, even as demonstrated less capable decks, Uril can certainly get BIG!

I was expecting a Primal Surge

January 18, 2017 8:19 p.m.

lil_cheez that has been mentioned in the past and as I said to those people, Primal Surge is the definition of easy mode and is a waste of a slot in what is otherwise a very fun deck to play. I'll make a note in the description that it has been deliberately excluded.

EternalBrewmaster Got it. I agree, it's an unfun card. But strong, anyway

January 19, 2017 10:21 a.m.

No doubt lil_cheez, but if I had it then this deck wouldn't be all permanents would it? And playing Primal Surge just makes all the hard work of doing all the combos kind of moot. A better explanation even is that if I cast the Surge, then I wouldn't get all the cast triggers for Sigil of the Empty Throne to make angels and I would be committed to win somehow that turn because I would have nothing left in my library so I would lose on my next draw step and wouldn't be able to cast any more enchantments from my hand because all my enchantress effects would be in play.

  • Hello Sensei !
  • I play Uril for 1 year now and i like your deck, i had karametra and never used it but thanks to you i realize how good it is with Emeria Sheperd and so i took off karmic guide for Emeria Sheperd !
  • I see in comments that you already talk about Primal Surge and reasons why you don't want to play it.
  • But if you change your mind there are some replacements what do you think ?
  • take off :
  • Seal of primordius ( i think aura shard and aura of silence is enough since you have Stony silence too)
  • emblem of Warmind
  • 1x forest
  • Iroas (seems kinda funny card but Menace is not the strongest evasion and it protects your creatures only during your combat phase so..)
  • Add :
    • Boseiju : no counterspell on primal surge and you can tutor it with knight of Reliquary
    • Starfield of Nyx : Recursion and turn all your non-aura enchantements into overwhelming creatures with primal surge
  • I think you don't need triggers from Sigil to actually blow your opponent and you can choose to stop the primal surge before your deck is empty (watch out for Eidolon of blossoms trigger )
  • You don't have any way to tutor Primal Surge so in my opinion its fair :)
  • Thanks to share your decklist !

And so you can name this deck "Enchantress Oops almost all permanents !

I hope you are not pissed off by another tread of primal surge ;(

I'm done with it.

Now about Sigarda Aid i think you need Seedborn muse so you will be able to cycle your deck even if you don't draw your mana's combos and i would take off Iroas for it.

You have already so much card draw with your enchantress but have you try Femeref Enchantress ? It works great with Auratog and Auratog himself + Sigill + Rancor is nice synergy.

January 24, 2017 10:17 p.m.

I'm glad you like the deck and thanks for the suggestions! I like the way it plays now and I like having redundant forms of spot removal in different colors, thus the Seal of Primordium. Many of the card choices in this deck, including the lands, and even every Forest and Plains was chosen because I'm playing one of each of my favorite arts of those lands. This deck is an art project as much as it is just a magic deck. I don't play Starfield of Nyx because it makes Karmic Justice worthless, and it makes my other enchantments too vulnerable to removal. Good luck with you Uril deck, and go ahead and share my deck with all your friends!

January 25, 2017 12:32 a.m.

If you run so many land-based effects (Knight of the Reliquary, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Lotus Cobra, etc), why do you only run 35 lands? Like I've said before, I love the deck, just confused about that one thing.

January 29, 2017 3:30 p.m.

nomoreeightbit because with a sufficiently high amount of card draw/selection like this deck has, I have very little trouble getting them all out as I need them. I can't imagine why I'd want more lands if I'm already able to steadily get them into play until the god turn where I play the whole deck. Then all the leftover lands are just in my hand doing nothing.

Concordant Crossroads would be useful for when you decide to play your whole deck in one turn, and then win :)

Lilbrudder says... #14

Emblem of the Warmind already fills that role and is a better fit with the deck overall.

February 13, 2017 8:07 p.m.

Yeah like Lilbrudder said, Emblem takes care of that. Also there's no foil crossroads and it gives your opponents' creatures haste which is baaaaad. Play Mass Hysteria over it for the foil goodness unless you're already playing emblem. Thanks for the look at both of my decks! Hope you liked this one too.

My only question is on one of your combos: Karametra's trigger is based on casting a creature, correct? I'm not entirely sure but I think Defense of the Heart is: "search & put creature into play" I don't think it is: "cast for free" so I believe Karametra's "cast creature spell" prerequisite is not being met in that combo...

I've been wrong before but if I am I've been cheated out of an awful lot of combos, might be something to take an extra look at.

May 24, 2017 3:30 p.m.

Thanks for the upvote and the comment Gleeock! I'm sorry that you're confused by the Karametra + Emeria Angel combo. Maybe read it again and see if it passes the smell test. You're absolutely correct that the creatures are not cast as part of Defense of the Hearts trigger. That has nothing to do with the combo. The combo is just getting them both out and then casting literally any other creature.

May 24, 2017 5:11 p.m.

Gleeock says... #18

Yeah I looked harder at the combo now, & it reads; every turn you cast a creature. So the combo is to cast a critter from your hand & start freecasting DoTH from the graveyard... Makes sense.

I'm a huge Emeria Shepherd fan so you'll get no argument from me. Actually all the landfall angels are a blast with Karametra

May 24, 2017 9:21 p.m.

Yeah I totally agree. Admonition Angel was in this deck for five years until emeria shepherd came out. It was an easy replacement to make since I had quarantine field which was an even better replacement for admo angel.

Hello sir,

Sweet list!

You might want to consider Mesa Enchantress and Words of War. The additional enchantress effect improves your carddraw and the words add some spot removal, aswell as another win condition.

I personally like Femeref Enchantress. It adds up well with the triad Rancor, Brilliant Halo and Undying Rage. Just add some Auratog or Thaumatog to spice things up :) besides your Auramancer you could even play Monk Idealist.

This gameplan could be supplemented by Endless Wurm, Faith Healer and a Crystal Chimes.

Maybe I was able to give you some new ideas, if you want to try something new :)

Best regards, Friedrich

Thanks for taking a look and offering suggestions! Words of War is kind of cool because I can stop my self from drawing out my deck with it. I need to update this list with my most recent changes. Cheers!
