Thanks for your answer !

I'm not sure why you're saying that making Urza an artifact would make it a good source of commander damage, but yes the gameplan is mostly straightforward beatdown with the construct token, in a very casual fashion.

I know Urza, Lord High Artificer is a very good combo piece, but I rather intend to use it as an extra source of mana and value engine, in a very vanilla way. I know to some it might be sacrilegious, but I'm keeping it casual and I just like the construct theme. I'm not too fond of having boring infinite combos and extra turns in a fun format, at least on the kitchen table with friends. But also I don't really want to go for full aggro with only cheap creatures to get Urza out early and counterspells to keep it, even though that would probably be better.

Now the thing with Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is that I can't tutor it and it's relatively fragile as a planeswalker, so Mycosynth Golem still isn't a bad addition, in my opinion, especially with Fabricate and Sphinx Summoner.

Then, 35 lands is not nearly enough if I want to consistently have 3-4 lands on turn 3-4, I know commander player are the constant desire to remove lands but 35% chances of lands isn't enough, especially with lots of 3+ drops. Regarding what lands, I am not new to the game and I know that taplands sure aren't as good as ravlands, checklands and others, but they are also much cheaper. I have some left from past competitive decks, but I don't really wanna buy more right now, maybe later.

Hey, good upgrades to the precon, what you've done so far.

How do you want to win? Determining the main strategy you want to play can help to keep good cards for that strategy and cut unnecessary cards. If you're wanting to keep precon level budget then doing combat damage with Constructs and Commander damage with Urza are directions to consider. Research Thief and Bident of Thassa are excellent budget cards if you want to be attacking with Constructs. Making Urza an artifact makes him a reliable source of Commander damage, but this means including effects to make Urza an artifact.

You have Urza, Lord High Artificer, he's a combo wincon, but to use him as a wincon you'll want to add other cards and more ways to assemble the combo. Drawing cards from Constructs doing combat damage to opponents is a good alternative to playing expensive price tutors to get combo pieces in your hand.

You have Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, you don't really need Mycosynth Golem especially not for it's price tag. You don't need this Tezzeret either, but if you have it might as well play it. The first cuts to consider are lands since 41 lands is a lot when the strategy here are artifacts. Consider cutting 6 lands? Lands that always ETB tapped and are worse then others that also do this. If you feel you need more mana then add mana sources (rocks, dorks) not lands.

The Bounce lands and Scry lands are worse always ETB tapped lands then Tri lands, Bridges, etc.


Some advice for more cuts is choose the top 20 creatures here, top 10 artifacts and top 10 other nonland cards. By choosing the best cards then you can cut a huge chunk away of lesser cards.

Creatures:

Artifacts:

Others:

For upgrading it's easier to get an established list that's not 99 cards then have a list that's way over 99 cards. Really any 0-3 drop artifact creature who can make some value to take advantage of Urza artifact creature affinity or any 0-2 drop mana rock for more ramp can fill unfilled deck spots.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you're welcome.

If you wanted to a couple of lesser lands here could be upgraded within the budget?

Other options are to replace them for some less expensive utility lands?

These land options are lower priced ones, there's many others that are higher price that are better such as Inventors' Fair and City of Brass.

The Talismans in the sideboard could replace some of the Signets?


You're light here with low mana cost ramp and have a pretty high mana curve. More ramp could help gameplay. These are better ramp options specifically with Urza as Commander than the other Signets/mana rocks. The 2 drop artifact creature mana dorks can be helpful to cast Urza quicker since they count towards his artifact creature affinity and can make colored mana.

This is a ramp package to consider? It's 16 sources, most important 14 sources of low mana cost ramp with Urza, Monument and Tezz at high end. Thought Vessel is a good card, but it turns off discarding hand down to 7 cards which can fuel artifact reanimation. Solemn Simulacrum is another good card, but I think it's too much mana here since there's better 4 drops for power and/or help more Urza and Constructs. Sculpting Steel is excellent in multiplayer Commander and it can count towards ramp because it can become an artifact ramp source.

Good question lol.

I did forget about Top, but I’m not someone that ever really plays top, but it could be a good addition.

Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge - I’m not running a heavy amount of creatures and planeswalkers, so giving them affinity seems like it’s a bit so so, because there’s a lot of ramp anyway, the expensive cards are also some of the non-creature artifacts. His abilities are good but he is quite a lot of mana.

Jhoira's Familiar is 4 mana, Etherium Sculptor, Enthusiastic Mechanaut and Cloud Key are cheaper.

In one of the first drafts I was running Contraband Kingpin which is similar to artificers assistant but I cut it because i often found id rather cast other things in hand in the play tests.

Mystic Forge always struck me as a combo card but could be useful I suppose.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is similar to the answer I gave for the Koi, Skyswimmer Koi draws off etb not cast so draws from Mishra’s tokens entering. The other 2 don’t really fit the deck I don’t think?

What would you cut for any of the suggestions?

This looks like a total blast to play! In my artifact experiences, I have found Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge to be absolutely brutal. His MV is six, but it looks your mana-base can handle that. His +2 ability simply destroys.

Changes, 02Nov2021 continued:

In:

Improved mana rocks!: (Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Chromatic Orrery, Mox Opal, Voltaic Key). Little explanation needed here. The key can do more than be a mana rock, but considering how many of my rocks can now make 2+ mana per tapping, that's gonna be a lot of its purpose.

More turns: (Time Sieve, Expropriate). Seems like a better theme to splash in than pillow fort, and both of these cards are also about my main themes: artifact love and theft. Speaking of which...

Artifact love/recursion: (Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Sai, Master Thopterist, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Dakkon, Shadow Slayer). This deck loves artifacts. It kinda has to love Tezzeret too as a result.

Your stuff is mine now: (Thief of Sanity, Nightveil Specter, Opposition Agent, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, Empress Galina). I wanna take your stuff. All of your stuff. And not "until this card leaves the battlefield", either. Once I take it, it's mine. Bonus points for denying you access to them in the first place before making them mine.

Improved Lands: (Urza's Saga, Exotic Orchard, Glimmervoid). Urza's Saga is pretty much the card that made me realize I needed to update this deck.

Other: Fabricate is better than Diabolic Tutor by just about every measure. The only drawback being that it can only get artifacts is practically a moot point in this deck. Lithoform Engine just seems really good in here. I can't wait til I can copy an Expropriate with it... Finally, Paradox Haze cuz I love the way it can interact with not only The Ladies themselves but with Xanathar as well.

Ensoul Artifact can be a decent early game. Memnite and Ornithopter can be pretty useful too if you want to dump artifacts. Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge can get you a bunch of damage in if you have a bunch of artifacts to use too!
