On a Budget? —May 30, 2019
So alot of people are saying the price of the deck is too high and unrealistic. This is just a budgetless list for optimal cEDH gameplay where price isnt a deciding factor.
I AM however planning on making 2 budget list for the same cEDH level of gameplay. 1 around $2500 mark and the other around the $1500.
Let me know If this is what you guys are interested in and I'll make it happen!
KailDaemon i can see how uuuu is tough for most decks, but the fact that we're in mono blue and urza generates strictly blue makes me feel a little more comfortable with the high devotion. But i guess thinking about it we dont need another enabler anyways. Should be fine. I agree stroke is a much better card for the twister slot. If only i had a million dollars i could just buy a twister lol.
How about Teferi's Puzzle Box ? Correct me if im wrong but that locks opponents from having a hand with Narset, Parter of Veils ? And 4 isnt terrible with the density of mana acceleration in the deck.
Ive been goldfishing and 30 lands is feeling like a tad bit too much. Probably wouldnt hurt to take out an island and main the Expedition Map .
Idk just some more thoughts lol

I've never actually seen a use for Gilded Drake. Any particular reason over Preordain?

@fL4txxEaR7h3R yes the puzzle box with narset does lock opponents hands out, but it's not terribly necessary. It's a fine add in and would work. But I've already got an Opus Thief deck and if i wanted to do hand shenanigans I'd play that personally. But I see no reason to not run it if you needed another piece of stax. I've been debating on if I needed to run the map or not in my games. I havent found to tutor up my non basics quite just yet but I'll probably end up giving it a shot for more utility.
@Forkbeard thanks man! Been working hard on it with what little time I've had given some personal stuff I've got going on. Appreciate the upvote!
@Penthoplayer it's just a card I find very very useful in my meta. 2 mana steal whatever creature i need is darn handy. Steals gitrogs, blood pod stax pieces, zurs, etc... in any deck where i plan to have a longer than usual game, I like having it to help turn the tide in the late game. As for my reasoning to cut preordain, it was my weakest draw spell, and I needed to make room for some other much needed interaction. It was tough to cut tbh

So someone just suggested Mana Severance on my deck [Primer] Urza's Mox Factory!, thoughts? I'm kinda thinking it might be worth it... one of the things that can stop you from going off is hitting too many lands with that urza ability

@DrkNinja I thought about it originally but decided it was a "win more" card and was excessive. Once you have infinite mana/draw then it wont matter, because you're already winning at that point.

this seems like the correct build for this deck, nice work
