TheVectornaut no worries about timing. There's no rush to build a good deck. I'm just glad to hear from you. Based on your descriptions I think the second option is where I want to go with this deck, but with some added self-mill so I can really build up options for osgir quickly. Here are some cards that are on the way that I am most likely going to add soon: Phyrexian Triniform (big creature that may work better than triplicate titan), Rings of Brighthearth (4 tokens instead of two with osgir), Blinkmoth Urn(big mana), Goblin Engineer (sac and tutor in one), Zirda, the Dawnwaker(more mana help) and Leonin Abunas (protection). I also am pretty sure I will get Coveted Jewel, Basalt Monolith, Jhoira's Familiar (mana help), Grinning Totem, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Oswald Fiddlebender (tutors), Urza's Bauble (draw). I think if I get these and drop the ones in the sideboard section the deck would have increased mana efficiency, more tutors, and overall just stronger. The last piece I think would be a Mesmeric Orb, Grinding Station, or Keening Stone to fill up faster because the current GY fill cards are just lacking. Let me know if you think these are good choices out of the maybe board to snag. Ill try to playtest the deck a bit more online to see as well. Thanks!

I've got an Urza deck of my own, and I prefer having something like Thassa's Oracle or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries in order to win on the spot once you exile your entire library with infinite mana. Monoblue has no lack of card draw spells so this is more nitpicky than anything, but Jace or the Oracle can win with just themselves once you've emptied your library instead of having to cast Lab Man then cast a draw spell. I also enjoy Karn, the Great Creator to slow your opponents' ramp down or lock them out of the game with Mycosynth Lattice, kill their 0-drop rocks by animating them into 0/0s, or return a vital artifact combo piece from exile if needed. And since you're running Rings of Brighthearth already, you might like the Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth combo to generate infinite colorless mana, then you can use that colorless to generate infinite blue by tapping the Monolith for U instead of CCC if you need to cast stuff from your hand.
I also couldn't help but notice that you aren't running anything particularly cruel like Tsabo's Web (which doesn't care if it's tapped or untapped), Static Orb or Winter Orb which you can tap for mana on the end step before your turn to be unaffected by them, or Back to Basics. And you seem to be lacking some removal spells for on-board problems - some good ones to possibly consider are Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Ravenform, Reality Shift, and Imprisoned in the Moon.

Hey, nice upgrades so far.
Since you added Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth consider also adding Staff of Domination? Staff is an outlet with infinite colorless mana to draw and cast artifacts, repeatable sac and exile them with Osgir. Staff with infinite mana lets you repeatedly tap and untap Osgir. Goblin Engineer can tutor for any one of these combo artifacts, get it into your graveyard to reanimate by sacing any other artifact or exile it with Osgir.
Oswald Fiddlebender is a repeatable artifact tutor from Adventures of the Forgotten Realms who also gets artifacts into your graveyard to exile with Osgir. Lotus Bloom and Sol Talisman are mana rocks that have suspend, but they're CMC is 0. When they're in your graveyard they cost zero mana to exile with Osgir. You have cards here that make you discard and these are artifacts you want to discard. Boros Signet and Talisman of Conviction are more two drop Boros mana rocks.
Some changes to consider:
- Staff of Domination --> Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer
- Goblin Engineer --> Hellkite Igniter
- Oswald Fiddlebender --> Hoard-Smelter Dragon
- Lotus Bloom --> Rout
- Sol Talisman --> Boros Locket
- Boros Signet --> Temple of the False God
- Talisman of Conviction --> Forgotten Cave
Good luck with your deck.

- Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy goes infinite with Basalt Monolith because you end up tapping it for but you only pay to untap it. You'd need a way to turn that into something else to be used. Chromatic Orrery is one card that does this, as is Gemstone Array, Stonework Packbeast and Prismite.
Additionally, Basalt Monolith goes infinite with Rings of Brighthearth. You tap BM, and while it is on the stack you add two additional mana of any color from any source. You use two of your total 5 mana to BM's untap ability. Now what happens is the 1st untap ability resolves so BM untaps. While the stack is awaiting the second untap ability to resolve, you tap BM for 3 additional . Now that it is tapped again, the untap ability may resolve. Now you can repeat this process again, sinking into ROB to copy BM's untap ability over and over again each time you activate it. But again, you need a way to filter your mana.

If you really want to, you can pair Strionic Resonator/Lithoform Engine with Rings of Brighthearth for another activation of each. While you can't copy melee, you can copy the thing that's copying melee.
That being said though, Aggravated Assault + combat mana just seems a lot easier. Call me jaded, but if you're copying combat triggers that many times you probably should have won already :P

Drop Rings of Brighthearth . Most of your abilities are triggered not activated. ("Whenever", "when", "during"). Replace it with something else that works on "triggered" effects or "enters the battlefield".
