Blightsteel Colossus

Artifact Creature — Phyrexian Golem

Trample, infect

Blightsteel Colossus is indestructible.

If Blightsteel Colossus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Blightsteel Colossus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

Tidespout Tyrant is the original Hullbreaker Horror? It reads cantrip: Boomerang. It hits lands! Still good even by modern day power creep standards. This deck plays like a prowess strategy and they are value engines.

I have no intention of ever hard casting either. They round out the playset of Show and Tell targets after Blightsteel Colossus and before The Temporal Anchor/Shark Typhoon

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets very interesting. Scry draw and counter magic is useful but not as useful as OG Jace. I need to add more planeswalkers for Hurkyl digging. Will definitely consider if I can find 3 more planeswalkers.

Lands are currently in limbo as I shave spells. Everything is even tempo right now. This is a low curve deck with 8 mana rocks. I will at least start testing and will know to add lands at the first sign of trouble (I usually try to run 33 to 35)

Portent wow. Own it. Completely overlooked it. The slow cantrip is some neat tech for this list.

Artificer's Assistant you are right. I threw it in for the cheap scrying but Proteus Staff is spicy.

Cryptic Command for obvious reasons I'm avoiding counter magic but this is a powerful swiss army knife. Good eye!

Archmage Ascension seen this in a few of your lists. Your pet card. Hard to argue with instead of drawing a card Demonic Tutor it's just without a proliferate strategy to add counters it's a big requirement to meet.

Ward of Bones this is one of my pet card. Works best in planeswalker/instant/sorcery heavy strategies.

Dispersing Orb You are determined to not play with creatures haha I'm going to seriously consider this if I end up cutting Hullbreaker Horror and Tidespout Tyrant but the cantrip removal they grant is too powerful. Show and Tell fodder in absence of Blightsteel Colossus. Awesome suggestion.

It's not really a great card, but Shivan Gorge can deal some damage to each opponent, which can let you shave mana off of spells for a turn. There is also stuff like Spear Spewer that pings each player, that's a much better way to achieve that goal I suppose. There are also Kessig Flamebreather and Firebrand Archer that can turn any non-creature spell into damage, not sure you have enough stuff to justify them, but felt they were worth a mention. There is also good old Pyrohemia/Pestilence, which can ping each opponent (and it clears out x/1s if tokens are an issue in your area). Not sure if you will be able to get in for damage consistently, but Rite of the Raging Storm tokens usually suck to block, so you might get 5 damage per turn in some metas.

I feel like it's worth throwing in something like Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer if you want a sac outlet that can clear out lots of bodies and derive value from it, Feeder even works with Pitiless Plunderer (or another 'mana from dead creature' card, Pawn of Ulamog and Bog Initiate will work on a budget) and Gravecrawler to go infinite.

Final point, maybe a few Annihilator creatures that have high MV as their drawback, they tend to be colourless anyways, so can give a full discount and be free sometimes. Artisan of Kozilek and Pathrazer of Ulamog are good examples that aren't too pricey, but Titans are obviously more expensive/powerful, it's worth noting you'll always get cast triggers, even if you're casting them for nothing/very little. Some of these can also let you run cards that care about high MV, like Protection Racket and Timesifter, both are very strong in some metas. Heck, I think I'd just run Protection Racket either way now that I think about it, I'm not sure there is a drawback to that card in this deck, it's big drawback is that it's bad in combo decks because people won't give you combo pieces, but in a deck that isn't attached to any one card you can run it safely. There is also Meteor Golem, Platinum Emperion and even Platinum Angel to offer some value if stuff like Darksteel Colossus or Blightsteel Colossus are over the budget, and there are big old utility beaters like Tsabo Tavoc that are worth a look, you can shave 5 mana off still.

Rakdos is a pretty nifty Commander, hope you're having fun with him!

Oh whoops, I forgot about that last part of Blightsteel Colossus but ya, great as a side board option.

I guess I can see the value of using Sundering Titan, especially if the meta is geared towards 3+ color decks at the moment, but personally I'd just be too afraid it would backfire on me to use it in the main board.

That said, I really enjoy your version of the deck so far and I look forward to seeing how you improve it further.

I really like your version of a Mishra, Tamer of Mak Fawa deck, it seems like a blast to play!

I do have one question though, is Sundering Titan actually good? I feel like it’s a card that can way too easily backfire on you if you decide to put it out. Maybe I just haven’t watched enough competitive games to know how good it can really be, but I feel like Blightsteel Colossus would be the safer and more practical option.

ultimentra on Urza Deck- Looking for feedback

Hello, I'm putting together my Urza, Chief Artificer deck and I am concerned that I may not have enough colored mana sources, lands, and instants. My win conditions focus on Blightsteel Colossus, Mirrodin Besieged, and Mechanized Production. Some combos are built in with Sidri to give me unlimited colored or colorless mana. Am I spreading myself too thin, not including some really important cards, etc? Thank you!

Trophy Mage is in there solely to get Scroll of Fate. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling's end of turn trigger will blink a permanent and blinking a manifested card will return it face up. So in doing so I can get high costed things like Blightsteel Colossus or Omniscience in pretty quickly.

Hellkite Tyrant and Blightsteel Colossus seem like good additions if you want big finishers.
