9-lives on Manabase: Urzatron and Filter Lands …

1 month ago

wallisface I intended to include the bare minimum. Generally, yes, Sylvan Scrying and Arboreal Grazer are all useful for both manabases.

The problem with Lotus fields that urzatron doesn't have is that you have to start out with nominal lands and then use them to make Lotus Field. This is quite difficult compared to running a few filter lands or even urza with filter. Also, I don't have to untap anything. The worst thing that can happen with Urzatron is that I have to pay for 2 mana colors on one card. Other problems are that I don't have enough urza's lands to build up my colorless mana amount, or don't draw enough filter lands. However, I think it's quite balanced enough for this issue in the very ratios of cards there are.

So, assuming you’re wanting a lot or coloured mana, these are some thoughts:

Urzatron:

  • Urza lands are great at making loads of colourless mana, but terrible for providing colours. There’s good odds you’re going to create something really clunky.

  • Your current package only includes one playset of land-fectching cards (Expedition Map), which is woefully inadequate. Normally tron also needs to include playsets of both Ancient Stirrings and Sylvan Scrying (as well as 8-10 cantrip-artifacts) to reliably get tron online in any kind if timely matter.

  • Added to the stresses of getting Tron online, you’ve compounded the issue by needing coloured mana, meaning you’ll still need to fetch up the lands that provide that. You’ve created a LOT of unnecessary hoops to jump through, imo.

Lotus Field:

  • Like the tron package, i’m not sure you’re running enough ways to get the Lotus Field. Without that card in play, it really feels like your deck will be doing a lot of nothing. It might be instead that you just need to go less all-in on assuming you’ll draw that land early, however (i.e ditch the gimicky untap effects).

  • Your package really should be including a playset of Blood Sun, so that you can benefit from not having to deal with Lotus Field’s sacrifice trigger.

I'm wondering if Lotus Field combo works better or worse than using Urzatron with filter lands? Here's my manabase with Urzatron:

28 cards total

Here's the minimum manabase and cards to make Lotus Fields work:

36 cards total

Also, I can use filter lands themselves to make more colored mana. Urzatron with filter is even better. Lotus Fields requires that they are untapped artificially, which seems to giv the urzatron an advantage.

cool deck!!
if you want to make your commander unblockable, Silent Arbiter and Trailblazer's Boots are options.
either double strike or copying triggered abilities can give you two triggers Fireshrieker, Strionic Resonator.
getting lands, Tempt with Discovery, Reshape the Earth, Sylvan Scrying are options.
cheers and have fun!

I just updated it. The last iteration had a slightly higher average CMC and lacked Sylvan Scrying. Even then, it's a bit of a glass cannon. If I can get the combo set-up, it's game over. All the protection is to keep the pieces on the board.

In my playgroup it's run about a 50% win rate.

Interesting take using mutate creatures. That could be a fun time with this beautiful elemental! Upon fast read of those list the best suggestions I could give you are to ditch Sol Ring and Arcane Signet (your gunna want your ramp to come from lands and these artifacts are gonna feel underwhelming in this deck compared to a card like Sylvan Scrying to get any utility land you'd want! Or any other generic land tutor Skyshroud Claim would work wonderfully! All and all cool concept that looks fun to play!

Bannable in standard? A Sylvan Scrying that costs you your land drop? That enters tapped unless you're two lands behind? What actual lands are you scared of to be found?

It is very powerful to be able to tutor any land. This is great with Exploration-effects, but in any turn-5-or-less-format without reliable extra land drops, this is just skipping a turn/land for your ideal next land drop. Skipping your turn is a terrible price for practically any effect in Magic, this card is not bannable.
