The Antiquities War

Enchantment — Saga

(As this Saga enters and after your draw step, add a lore counter. Sacrifice after III.)

, — Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal an artifact card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

— Artifacts you control become artifact creatures with base power and toughness 5/5 until end of turn.

My deck:

Urza, Lord High Artificer - Critical Mass (v1.0)

Commander / EDH KBK7101


Looking for feedback on my Urza deck. Main gameplan is to build a board of artifacts and then transform/animate them using effects like The Antiquities War, Rise and Shine and Masterful Replication. Please keep any recommendations reasonable as Urza has a track record for being broken and I'm not trying to make this deck cEDH.

IHATENAMES, Forsaken Monument would work better in a Myrtron deck that isn't white in my opinion. Tempered Steel is cheaper and can stack as it is not Legendary.

Myr Reservoir and Myr Retriever do what Return to the Ranks can and are artifacts. I think the goal LeechBoy is doing is sticking with somewhat mainly Myr and artifact creatures as the base of creatures which capitalizes on Tempered Steel.

The Antiquities War Would probably work better with an Esper or Azorius control deck as you can have tons more of noncreature artifacts in that type of deck.

With White Tempered artifact decks, you want to go massive pump so the bots can teabag with their big nuts and bolts.

Just realized the inf combo but it is difficult at best to pull off. Even if you do untapping a ton won't win the game a few more ideas. Some better then others.

Forsaken Monument might be a better tempered steel price allowing.

Eldrazi Displacera cook card not sure it fits here

Return to the Ranks mana sink +can win the long game.

The Antiquities War budget beef up artifacts. You only need a few blue sources as you can play the blue myr

Blacksmith's Skill protection +buff

Nice! Love seeing the "less powerful" CMR partners. I have an Urza deck that is pretty similar in concept. The Antiquities War and Sakashima's Will are more effects like your win-cons you might wanna check out. Rites of Replication would be great, too!

I recommend cutting some wincons (7 is a lot).

Not sure what should go in its place. Foundry Inspector can help make the combo cheaper (6+2 = 8 mana is pretty expensive). I tried to think of more tutors/dig like maybe The Antiquities War or Tezzeret the Seeker but they didn't seem to fit the deck.

Very cool! New Phyrexian legends really interest me and this list has a similar gameplan to the Urza deck I'm currently working on. Some highlights from that deck that I'd recommend are Rise and Shine, The Antiquities War, Masterful Replication and Sakashima's Will. Rise and Shine dumps lots of +1/+1 counters on your artifacts and animates them, while the other three imitate Brudiclad by changing things into other things on a board wide scale.

My biggest recommendation is Academy Manufactor, though. It triples your treasure output!
