     DawnsRayofLight: Thank you, great suggestions!

     I am running Counterspell, so I'm not quite sure what you mean about running Stoic Rebuttal over it. I've considered cutting SR a few times for Negate, but I always end up deciding against it, as it's nearly always another Counterspell. This slot is more likely to become Disallow and eventually Force of Will. =)

     Absolutely love AEtherize! Used it a lot in standard back in the RTR block; I should definitely find a home for it here! I think I'll definitely consider Aetherspouts as well. Propaganda is really good with the land control, but I always feel like without running a whole Pillow Fort package, it's an enchantment I can't tap for mana. Same kind of feelings for Dissipation Field, despite the strength of the card.

     Manascape Refractor is an awesome suggestion that I hadn't considered! Definitely going to look to make room for it. Field and Vale, though, I feel would just slow me down more than they would be beneficial in the face of some of my stax effects. I'd be more inclined to add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx back into the deck, I think.

     This deck honestly doesn't need more win-more cards. I used to have it very full of big value creatures like Darksteel Colossus and Sphinx of the Second Sun that I could turn up with Urza's active, which was fine - but I'd frequently find myself stuck with too many in my early hand, and was way more susceptible to being mana-screwed. At this point I'm down to one big fatty in Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. All that being said, I am planning to eventually cut God-Pharaoh's Statue for Blightsteel Colossus haha. =P

     Metalworker would be a great pickup too, but I'd definitely be more inclined to trade for than buy, and finding someone willing to trade one is easier said than done lol

     Thanks again! =)

Hey! This is a really fun looking deck! I'd like to make a few suggestions if that is cool:

Stoic Rebuttal: there is no reason to run this over Counterspell or really any other counter spell

AEtherize. Aetherspouts, Propaganda, and Dissipation Field are great for protection.

Strixhaven Stadium: can act as an alternate win con

Lotus Field, Lotus Vale, and Manascape Refractor can help if you are unable to keep Winter Orb untapped for your turn so you can play what you need to.

Maybe add some big bois like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Blightsteel Colossus as other win cons and utilize the large amounts of mana you generate.

Metalworker: I know he is pricey but it is hilarious to Turn 2 a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

DawnsRayofLight on you don't need mana to play magic!!!!

I have been toying around with this deck idea and I have some suggestions now!

Lotus Vale and Lotus Field are invaluable with Hokori

I would drop howling mine for Endless Atlas, other card draw are War Room, Alms Collector, Esper Sentinel, Mangara, the Diplomat, I have been having a lot of games where the deck just grinded to a halt without something to refill it. Symmetrical card draw can work against you here so Howling Mine May not be good unless you have plenty of ways of tapping artifacts down.

Manascape Refractor is really good with the right lands (like the lotus lands)

Archaeomancer's Map helps with ramp

Archon of Emeria is super good, a better eidolon or can be run in addition

Sanctum Prelate to stop any annoying board wipes.

Solemnity isn't really needed unless you plan on playing Phyrexian Unlife as well.

This is what I have been working on using yours a blueprint: No One Wants to Play EDH With Me Now...

so i guess the big question is can Manascape Refractor use activated abilities of plane walkers if the planes walker is a creature / land
and if it can use them is it restricted to 1 activation per turn since it is not a planeswalker itself......
but then if i mutate the planeswalker is it going to now permentily stay a planes walker , creature, land ?
and if it does what happens if i start cloneing it????
my head hurts now i need a nap
