Urza's Bauble Discussion

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!

For draw, I'd add Ichor Wellspring . Drawing two cards and being a good two-mana stepping stone towards your combo pieces is pretty great. Other cards that come to mind for a combo deck like this are Mind Stone , Lightning Greaves , Illusionist's Bracers , Phyrexian Revoker , Crashing Drawbridge . Treasure Vault can give you infinite sac tokens/colored mana. You also might want to add Urza's Bauble and Mishra's Bauble .

Thanks for the upvote! I just finished my Osgir deck earlier and this looks like a much more tuned version of mine :o
Few cards that might be worth lookin into are the bauble cycle ( Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble ). Not super powerful, but getting a few more draws for free can't ever hurt, right? I slid in an Ashnod's Coupon in mine as a proxy for Urza's Bauble, but like cmon, you just gotta! That's 3 drinks!! You def are lookin more to be fun, but if you wanna be degenerate sometimes, Osgir is a great place for Zirda, the Dawnwaker and Basalt Monolith to play :D You already got the zirda, chuckin in the monolith and Staff of Domination plus a good ol Mycosynth Lattice means you just get to cast your whole deck and copy every artifact in it! I'm always a fan of all in strategies like that, but whackin somebody with big meaty golems never feels bad..
Keep up the good work!

You could go with what they call eggs
Mazemind Tome gives you some extra draw or scry
When i used eggs in my mono red I went with ones I could get extra benefit from
There are more but you get the idea

Hey Broviticus, thanks for stopping by. Really appreciate the comment, question, and upvote.
Also thanks for catching the fact that Alibou, Ancient Witness is in fact an artifact. I put that update together pretty late last night, and was quite tired. Being an artifact does make it more appealing, but as you mention, I'm not exactly sure what to cut to add it.
The original thought behind not including Coveted Jewel / Hedron Archive is the high CMC. When adding ramp cards and specifically mana rocks, I was looking for 2CMC rocks in order to help get the commander out a turn early. I was also concerned about opponents stealing Coveted Jewel , but you make an excellent point it could just be scarified in response. I may be looking to add this in the future since it does have some serious late game potential. Mind Stone was in the original draft, but seems to be missing from the maybeboard for some reason. I decided to cut this for more efficient card draw options such as Ichor Wellspring / Mishra's Bauble / Urza's Bauble .
Glad someone finally noticed the FMA theme. Just recently finished watching it all the way through for the first time, and I have to say, it's definitely in my top 5 now. Thanks again for the upvote. Cheers.

Some instant/sorcery possibilities for you:
Kefnet's Last Word since you can uniquely avoid the downside of not untapping your lands
Sea Gate Restoration Flip
You could also run take-extra-turn spells to pretty good effect, but that's up to you.
I might swap in "eggs" for artifacts rather than ones that need to go to the GY to draw you cards, since you want them on the field for your commander's ability:
And some ideas for cuts, just based on being overall weaker cards:
Storm the Vault Flip
Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp
Call the Skybreaker
Pull from Tomorrow
Finally, and I hate to suggest it since it means more cuts, but I think you should eventually be at 35 or 36 lands even with all of the ramp. 33 is pretty low unless you're running the full Mana Vault / Mana Crypt etc. cEDH manabase. I hope this gives you a good place to start!
