Urza, Lord High Artificer cEDH *Primer*

Commander / EDH Artifact Combo Competitive Mono-Blue Primer Stax



Artifact (1)

Hey there!! Here to bring you cEDH Urza!!

Our primary goal is to assemble infinite mana for Urza's activated ability to exile our library and cast all our non land spells. From here we can find any number of ways to close the game out with access to cast our deck for free.

How we will get there is with a suite of both stax elements that can be abused with Urza's mana ability to tap certain artifacts to make the asymmetrical for our advantage and put us ahead while we use our second suite of artifact/instant and sorcery tutors to assemble a way to generate infinite mana or to draw our deck.

Once you have achieved infinite mana/draw, you can then use your Scepter engine as an outlet for endgame options:

So we say infinite spellcasting a few times but how does that achieve a win when we dont really have storm cards in the deck? Well by looping certain cards we can create infinite swans with Swan Song targeting a spell of ours and then Time Twisting the Swan Song and spell we countered with it back to deck to draw it again with a draw engine, Codex Shredding the Timetwister , and the rinse and repeat for infinite Swans to beat down after a turn cycle.

If you're on a budget and cant afford the higher end cards like Timetwister or The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale then here are a few budget list for you to stay in the cEDH powerlevel without the excessive high cost. Now be forewarned: these are still relatively expensive...but nowhere near the $10k range that this list is at. We are going for cEDH in terms of power level.


Updates Add

Finally updated my budget list to accommodate for the loss of Paradox Engine. Not much really changed but the decks are still very powerful and have been performing quite well at their respective power levels as far as budget lists goes for cedh.

Check them out as well as the primer to learn how to play the deck!
