If you want cat tokens, how about Brimaz, King of Oreskos ? Purrfect aggro and tokens in one cat bro!

Wanna go voltron? How about protection equipment like Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , and Mask of Avacyn ? Or something more aggro like Loxodon Warhammer ?

Also I don't think Farseek really works in this deck. You don't have any non-basics to bring out with it, so I would just run Rampant Growth instead so you can get a forest too.

VexenX and GeminiSpartanX, has any consideration been given to Sylvan Safekeeper ? I am cutting Lightning Greaves as my opponents tend to wait for Omnath to etb and then use instant speed removal.

GeminiSpartanX, what are you cutting for Springbloom Druid ?

I also noticed you are still playing Shaman of the Forgotten Way. Will this be the cut for Springbloom Druid?

Hey VexenX, I really wouldn’t consider cutting Chord of Calling . I’ve been running Green Sun's Zenith almost solidly in this deck since it's inception right when Omnath, Locus of Rage came out and I would not underestimate our only instant speed to the battlefield tutor. I personally cut Sylvan Scrying for Elvish Reclaimer , still waiting to see if this was the correct choice but I think I value to the battlefield higher than to the hand in general even it's a little slow etc. I’d also agree with GeminiSpartanX regarding non-basic tutors. For me Traverse the Outlands is only a recent addition to the deck, I did not run it for the longest time as it was dependant on boardstate so isn't always relevant, however, that said it has been consistently strong since its inclusion in my deck. My meta's full of blue players so for me tutoring out Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Cavern of Souls is very important. If you inlcude Green Sun's Zenith then you may want to prioritise creature versions of our cards as we can tutor them into play, I for example run Sylvan Safekeeper over Lightning Greaves and had been running World Shaper too for that reason.

@draaien Thanks for the suggestions. I will be sure to swap some things out for these amazing cards. But, what would I take out? I feel like I should swap Creeping Trailblazer with Incandescent Soulstoke .
Omnath, Locus of Mana for Budoka Gardener
Lightning Greaves for Trade Routes ?
Scale Up for Retreat to Coralhelm
But other than that, I have no idea what else to change. Also, what would I remove, and add to get in more lands?

Razamatazz on Brago :sweats:

Kiyomei - The best hate cards to shut down Brago are Aven Mindcensor and Torpor Orb . Brago searches the library constantly. Usually multiple times a turn. And obviously etb triggers is the name of the game. Brago also struggles against Ensnaring Bridge , Maze of Ith , Spore Frog , Constant Mists or anything else that prevents him from dealing damage. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite making him a 0/2 for example. Anything that prevents him from triggering is the most relevant hate. Often that is simply targeted removal or a board wipe. An early Aura of Silence can also be painful to fight through because of the tax and built-in removal. Vandalblast overload can hose Brago as well.

Sanctum Prelate on 2 would stop Strionic Resonator , Lightning Greaves , most counterspells, many mana rocks, Power Artifact , Cyclonic Rift , etc. I think 2 would be best against Brago. However, 3 does stop Fabricate , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth ; and 1 stops Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , some counterspells, some mana rocks, Sensei's Divining Top , Silence , etc. If I was playing against Brago I would choose 2. Next best is 1 in my opinion, then 3.

jaymc1130 I doubt you understand magic at all with your imaginary playgroup and fantasy pro play nonsense xD but I wish you the best of luck with your delusional view of yourself being actually relevant but go troll elsewhere if you feel the need to waste peoples time and try not to make up stuff and think you are a big shot it's pretty low and useless xD !!!

I would suggest EDHREC for people like you as funmander strategies and low-quality cards fit your crystal shard Urza deck but please try not to go and ruin other lists with your Crystal shard BS ;)...

You're a very bad joke to Urza though in general and it's laughable at best to think I'd be upset by some nonsense and delusional talk, But let us be very blunt here you'll never add anything to Urza anywhere relevant anyway just stating the facts here so you Gucci???? ;) ...

But Thank you for understanding and Best of luck with your lower power Urza list and casual playgroup/meta... Nothing wrong with that...

your list contains :

Elixir of Immortality

Riptide Laboratory

Seat of the Synod

Artificer's Intuition

Counterbalance

mages

Lightning Greaves

And you want me to take you serious? get out of here kid...

Sylvanrush on Rhys, Lord of Squirrels

1 week ago

Likely going to put Lightning Greaves in the deck, a hasty non-target-able Rhys is a nice option. One of my issues is protecting Rhys.. I really don't want to go down the slippery slope of loading the deck with things like Asceticism and Steely Resolve - Greaves are a good start though - just need to figure out what to pull for it - anyone make any suggestions?
