As far as decent 1-mana artifacts that you can add as 1-ofs for Saga, the normal go-tos are Haywire Mite and Shadowspear (both which you're already running), and then Springleaf Drum, Nihil Spellbomb, Pithing Needle, Pyrite Spellbomb. I'm not sure how many of those you'd actually want to run mainboard, as many are more useful as sideboard options - I think the combination of Haywire Mite, Shadowspear, and Mishra's Bauble is already a good mix :)

Some more details behind sergiodelrio's answer: If an effect from a resolving spell or activated/triggered ability (Shadowspear, Bonds of Mortality, etc.) changes the characteristics of objects, the set of objects it affects is "locked in" at the time it resolves. If new objects appear later on, they aren't affected. On the other hand, an effect from a static ability (Archetype of Endurance, etc.) continuously updates the set of objects it affects as new things show up.

Another note: If an effect from a resolving spell or activated/triggered ability changes the rules of the game (e.g. "creatures can't block this turn") then the set of objects it affects is not locked in on resolution and it will still apply to new objects that show up later in its duration.

Player A controls a creature with Hexproof; Uril, the Miststalker. Player B controls an ability like Shadowspear or Bonds of Mortality, where it can remove the Hexproof from player A's creature.

Since these abilities are not worded in the same way as Archetype of Endurance, if player A was to Flicker their Uril, the Miststalker, it would regain Hexproof?

Have you considered more artifacts with Reconfigure? While I think all of them would work, Lion Sash and Cloudsteel Kirin should be auto includes.

Another card to consider is Paradise Mantle since its practically a mana rock.

If you find yourself with some budget space, Shadowspear is definitely worth consideration.

Also, to make it easier to activate Puresteel Paladin's Metalcraft ability(which gives your equipment creatures with reconfigure equip as well), you may want to consider artifact lands. This includes, but is not limited to, Great Furnace, Rustvale Bridge and Scene of the Crime.

This is all I have for you for now. Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Fear, Fire, Foes!, Everlasting Torment , Shadowspear, Smite the Deathless, Sudden Spoiling, Leyline of Punishment. Good ways to get around protection, indestructible, and similarly annoying mechanics!

This deck seems pretty decent for a new-brew! Some suggestions for improving the deck:

  • You always want to aim to be only running 60 cards. While 64 might not seem like much over this, it's going to lead to a less-consistent, and weaker, deck.

  • Aether Vial seems like a weak choice here, as your deck has a range of differently-costed creatures, you'll be unlikely to get much reliable value from it. I would personally be swapping it for a range of 1-off 0-1 mana artifacts you can toolbox-find with Urza's Saga - for example, one-each of Pithing Needle, Relic of Progenitus, Shadowspear and Welding Jar

Some thoughts:

  • your land count is very low, especially when you’re running 3 copies of a legendary land. For reference, the meta hardened scales runs around 24 lands and has an average mana-cost of only 1.5 (treating cards like Walking Ballista as worth ). You’ve only got 19 lands and your average mana-cost is a much higher 1.9 (assuming Thought Monitor and Thoughtcast only ever cost ).

  • Shadowspear is generally only ever good because it can be grabbed with Urza's Saga - without Saga it’s much harder to justify.

  • 4 mana is very steep, especially considering your land count, and I don’t see either Arcbound Crusher or Vannifar, Evolved Enigma doing nearly-enough to justify their cost.

  • Fabricate feels very slow/clunky when Ancient Stirrings exists.
