Darksteel Relic Discussion

If you're still making considerations, I would look at Ovinize instead of Turn to Frog . Both are instant speed, but one makes the creature a 0/1 while the other is a 1/1. This could make a difference if the creature you want to steal is equipped or enchanted.

If you do go this route, I would also recommend do-nothing artifacts to swap like Darksteel Relic , Sigil of Distinction , or Sphere of the Suns . Also Master of Waves will let you swap a 1/0 elemental to your opponent that will die as soon as you give it to them, and Bronze Bombshell will explode for 7 damage while you keep their creature.

Ghost-Chains of Binding

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant permanent

Enchanted permanent loses all types, colors and abilities. It is still a permanent.

After a thousand eternities of sheer and vast silence, you shall wait a thousand eternities more.

Whatever you enchant, it can be considered even more worthless than Darksteel Relic . At least that thing helps with Affinity costs and can see some use with Tezzeret the Seeker and Saheeli, the Gifted .

Shame Darksteel Ingot exists, otherwise I'd ask you to make a "Darksteel Mox". Bummer.

Make anything you'd like but it must be Darksteel in nature. So an Indestructible Artifact. Anything else is fair game.

TerminalMarch Wow, I totally forgot about Wear / Tear , thanks for that one. As for the other 3, Conjurer's Bauble is already in the deck but the other 2 were not and they're definitely strong (probably stronger than Darksteel Relic , which has absolutely no utillity).

Since you don't have affinity or artifact sinergies, might I recommend Darksteel Relic , the hockey puck that costs nothing and does even less... also only put in two of the three tron lands. Try Seraph Sanctuary as I don't see any angels in here, and Eye of Ugin because you don't have eldrazi. I'd consider Possibility Storm because that can be terrible. Other than that, keep putting in rubbish cards, I want to build a cube like this to troll my friends.

One of the cards that has been announced for core set 2020 is [translated as] "Masterful Replication". It is a 6 cost modal instant (5 + Blue). Its effects are: create two 3/3 artifact creature tokens; or every artifact you control becomes a copy of target artifact you control.

Applications include:

  • Have an interesting time with an army of Master of Etherium or Darksteel Colossus or similar tough artifact creatures.
  • Have a stack of Genesis Chamber each making a token when you next cast something.
  • You could one shot someone during their upkeep with the sudden appearance of a board full of Iron Maiden .
  • With your Urza out during your opponents draw step, you could turn all of your artifacts into copies of Mind's Eye tapping them to pay their own cost drawing a mass of cards.
  • You could also win the turn after casting Mechanized Production by making all of your artifacts, including artifact lands, into copies of the artifact you enchanted.

Shimmer Myr is also a good card.

Also since you might find yourself attracting some artifact hate some indestructible artifacts might be a good include, such as Darksteel Ingot , Darksteel Relic and Darksteel Plate .

Scheer218 on Urza, Lord High Artificer cEDH *Primer*

I was drafting a deck and when I was initially going through, I ran Darksteel Relic , I then switched it to Mishra's Bauble , both over Jeweled Amulet since each can only really only make 1 blue mana. I get that the amulet can produce mana without Urza on board, but I think bauble is a stronger fit because it can cantrip itself if needed, and with Urza it is still basically a mox.

I guess im valuing the option of the card draw over what to me is a poor mana rock, what are your opions?

Currently you have no reason to need white mana in the side so trading some BW duels for basics should be better. Running Field of Ruin / Blast Zone could add utility to your mana base that gets ramped up to 11 with the ability of Karn, the Great Creator to fetch Crucible of Worlds from the side. Your game plan seems pretty grindy so Mox Amber might be better off as a Dimir Locket / Gleaming Barrier just because only 7 cards enable it to make mana making it a Darksteel Relic most of the time.

I highly suggest Mox Opal if you have access to it. In artifacts matter decks like this, it's a powerful source of early ramp.

I'm not sure how good Seat of the Synod is. It is an artifact, but it also straight dies to Null Rod , Back to Basics , Stony Silence and Blood Moon . I don't know how big your meta is on non-basic hate, but in mine Seat might as well be a Darksteel Relic . I think a basic would be better.

I never had much luck with the Pili-Pala combo. Does it work for you? I would just as soon run more tutors like Reshape or Transmute Artifact . You might also consider Power Artifact on Basalt Monolith or Grim Monolith ... that'll depend on how much money you want to spend though.

If you're looking for control elements, consider Counterbalance . With Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack , it is a powerful card.

I agree with DonQuijote: Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is a good win condition. Once you've gotten rid of your library and have infinite mana, he wins.
