Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter

Legendary Artifact Creature — Thopter



You may cast colourless spells and artifact spells as though they had flash.

Whenever you cast a spell, if the amount of mana spent to cast that spell is greater than Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter's power, put a +1/+1 counter on Liberator.

Profet93 I've had good luck with Horizon Stone personally, even if it's a bit high of a casting cost it's good if you've got a hand of even more-expensive Eldrazi or simply want to save up for an explosive following turn.

Orrery was in the deck but got replaced by Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter which is the same effect (in a colorless deck) on a flash-flying creature that slowly gets bigger.

Commander's Plate was in the list and is definitely a good card, but most of the time I can protect Kozilek (or anything else) by just discarding a card, and the steep equip cost is what turned me away from it.

The Wastes are in there for mainly opponent interaction - it never feels good to get Path to Exiled and fail to find, or if I copy a ramp spell off of Wandering Archaic. Plus it provides a small buffer as someone in my group started running land destruction, since less effects can hit basics.

The tron lands were in the list, but the odds of getting all three were so low I was able to get more consistent value off of three individual utility lands (since I don't have a means to reasonably search for more than one).

Bonder's Enclave was also in the list, and got replaced with War Room. War Room doesn't anti-synergize with the Sylex, since the Sylex says you can still pay 0 life and being a colorless deck you only have to pay 0 life to activate it. I'm sure I could put the Enclave in for another land, but I don't want to get rid of too many basics.

Of course, I've got some cards that I'm thinking about cutting - I have to wait and see what the 10 new cards are in the upcoming colorless Eldrazi precon and consider what to remove for any of those.

Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter seems like a good option

I just kinda assumed you were already running Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter, Shimmer Myr, and instant speed discard outlets if you were comboing at instant speed. I'm not overly familiar with Trazyn the Infinite combos and didn't look at the deck.

Having just dictated my thoughts on what I needed, I was able to refine what I was looking for. A quick search yielded Dire Mimic and Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter as what I was looking for.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond though :)

Profet93 small confession first is that I'm likely to change over to Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter when it arrives. Still like your list of suggestions!

I've found myself avoiding Mycosynth Lattice for the same reason I avoid using Karn, Silver Golem, they create a lot of cool interactions but there's also some ...less than desired interactions for me. Like turning everyone's lands into explodable things. Though that does bring me back around to Blinkmoth Urn, it's a card I had written off a long time ago due to it's interaction with Lattice. Obviously need to revisit that.

I have to disagree with most any land being better than Rogue's Passage. That thing sneaks in enough wins that my group (other than just me) is finally running targeted land destruction lol.

I'd certainly like a Cavern of Souls, if it comes up in a trade! Though I've never met anyone willing to trade theirs. Field of the Dead though I swear I had in here. I'll have to double check. If not it's a no brainer for the list.

Huge fan of all the decks posted here! +1 for the effort and detail you put in. Can't wait to see the updates from Dominaria United and Brothers' War. Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter is a better Shimmer Myr. Cheers!
