Basalt Monolith Discussion

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

I’m a rather big fan of Urza, Lord High Artificer as a win condition, since he both turns your non-rock Artifacts into coloured mana rocks, and serves as an outlet for infinite mana. He makes for a relatively easy Lab Man win that mitigates your concerns with that line. You can exile your entire library, including your counterspells, cast lab man with counterspells to protect it, then fire off a draw one (still with protection) for the win.

Im going to go ahead and not assume that you have anything quite yet and go through the common inf mana lines as well as infinite The Chain Veil . Sorry if these are redundant, but I feel like I shouldn't assume.
With inf mana, anything that has forced draw x or mill x wins the game.
With inf mana Deadeye Navigator combos, you can add in Deceiver Exarch to any of them and tap down your opponents at upkeep or better yet Riftwing Cloudskate / Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all of their permanents.
Hopefully at least something here helps!

- Basalt Monolith produces , and we have a hard time dumping that mana. Our curve is very low, and the only spells we run that include generic are Armageddon and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , as well as arguably the X cost creature tutors.
- Basalt Monolith will be taxed by Kataki, War's Wage
- Basalt doesn't untap itself after we use it outside of combo
- Seeker of Skybreak has a body, which means it can be pumped via Anafenza, the other Anafenza, or Elesh Norn
- Seeker is an elf, relevant for Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania
Basalt does have a few benefits over Seeker though
- Harder to remove permanent type
- No summoning sickness, you can engage the combo right away
- No colored mana cost requirement (this has never been an issue in this deck, but still worth noting)
If you want to play this deck, you could choose to run Basalt Monolith in place of Seeker, or you could run them both. I have opted to run just one, as the two piece library flipper combo is still going to be slower and harder to assemble than Hermit Druid by himself.

Hey! I got a few suggestions... feel free to ignore any/all of them.
There're some good mana rocks I think you missed. Mana Vault is awesome, although it can be ~$30 these days. Basalt Monolith is Grim Monolith 's little brother, and if you end up running either of them Voltaic Key or Manifold Key become their own Sol Ring s. Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph are very powerful when they copy something like your Sol Ring or Thran Dynamo .
If you have access to it, you should run Cyclonic Rift . Blue doesn't have many options for universal boardwipes, but the Rift is certainly a good one. It's especially good if you pair it with Windfall , which I think you should also be running. If you want to take this all the way, you can run Narset, Parter of Veils , too.
Liquimetal Coating is good, since you can use it instead of Memnarch 's first ability. If you choose to run Karn, the Great Creator , you can turn off/nuke lands with the coating, too. Also Mycosynth Lattice .
Depending on how many artifacts you end up with in your final list, you may find Lodestone Golem to be helpful.
I love that you're running Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm . You should consider some mass-draw spells in addition to the cantrips: things like Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time and Fact or Fiction are all good at refilling your hand. In terms of permanent-based card-advantage, Staff of Nin is a card I've always really liked.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck!
