pretendingtoalright I have thought about it but never play tested with her. She has no + ability and her -2 is only mediocre in this deck. I've found that Efficient Construction is better than Saheeli's static ability as planswalkers are a bit more prone to removal/being attacked then enchantments are.

Some cards you can cut are cards that lend themselves to strategies different than what you’re trying to do. I mean strategies like going wide, Efficient Construction, or super friends, The Chain Veil, and artifacts matter, Unwinding Clock and Contraband Kingpin. The more backup strategies you have if your main one fails, the less consistent your deck will be. So look at your cards and ask if they are in there because they help your strategy or do some kind of spin off thing. Ornithopter, Raff Capashen, and Sen Triplets are all good cards but for different decks. Those are my thoughts! Hope you can keep thinning it out

marco-piatti on "Fair" Urza win cons

Hi everyone, i want to build a "fair" urza build which in my opinion basically means: no stax and no infinite combos. I would like to know some suggestions about the possible win cons i could add to the deck (i'm on a budget so no >10$ cards). The ones that i had in mind were:

1) Construct army thanks to: Masterful Replication, Deadeye Navigator (without infinite mana i can't go infinite with constructs), Panharmonicon, Conjurer's Closet, Mirrormade, Karn, Scion of Urza and Mechanized Production

2) Token army: Efficient Construction, Thopter Spy Network, Sai, Master Thopterist, Genesis Chamber+Myr Battlesphere, The Antiquities War and Mirrodin Besieged

3) Mechanized Production or Mirrodin Besieged direct win condition

4) cast many spells with low cmc + Aetherflux Reservoir

If you have any other ideas for win cons it would be great.

You didn't ask but I've some cards to offer up for consideration :-) Saheeli's Artistry -a sweet card in an artifact and a namesake spell for the commander.

As general value cards Phyrexian Metamorph Phyrexia's Core and Cyclonic Rift (unless that one is too much(?))

If you want to beef up the token theme then perhaps Sai, Master Thopterist Steel Overseer Thopter Spy Network Efficient Construction or mirrodin Beseiged

Thanks Grind! Trading Post is awesome and was in the deck but I took it out to make room to try out Efficient Construction. It might have the leg up here because it is an actual artifact. I wish that it made artifacts and not white goats though, but it is extremely versatile and provides a lot of options. Phyrexian Reclamation is one of my all-time favorite cards! I did not originally include it because it did not have direct artifact synergy but probably go great in this deck. I'll have to pick up another copy. I don't usually run tutors, but I like your suggestions! No direct combos here as I usually lean toward value and synergy. Thank you very much for taking the time to comment and for your feedback! It is very much appreciated.

I would cut out one or more of the following as an emphasis: artifacts, enchantments, faeries, or tokens. Personally, I think artifacts is the weakest theme as of right now. Cards like Cranial Plating, Trading Post, Efficient Construction, and Witching Well don't do a whole lot (possibly Thopter Spy Network too). As a result of taking artifacts largely out, Emry, Luker of the Loch becomes pretty useless.

Your planeswalkers are interesting. They all play into the token theme very well.

Some cards I find are underwhelming: Daxos's Torment, Faerie Trickery, Whitewater Naiads, Harvestguard Alseids, Grim Guardian, Doomwake Giant, Agent of Erebos (I can see why you might play him), and Windfall.

There are some cards that are really good but could be easily cut such as Anointed Procession if you wanted to bring the price down.
