DuTogira on Are there any cards you …

Winter Orb is amazingly flavorful and explains the whole cold-snap set, but that effect should never have been printed

I have replaced Dovin Baan with Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset, because, while Dovin is certainly not the worst planeswalker who has ever been printed, he is fairly mediocre overall. His first ability is highly situational, his second ability is very nice, but nothing spectacular, and his third ability is very powerful, but cannot be used immediately, even when he is summoned with a Doubling Season present, so he simply is not sufficiently powerful for this deck. Also, having played in too many games in which another player cast a Winter Orb, I know how unpleasant that effect can be, so I do not wish to subject my opponents to it, either (Narset’s emblem is also very annoying, but she, like Teferi, provides amazing overall value, so I shall risk drawing the ire of other players when I summon her).

By contrast, the new Teferi provides amazing value, regardless of which of his abilities his controller activates, and, very significantly, his third ability can be used immediately if a player controllers a Doubling Season when they summon him, so I feel that this was an excellent decision for this deck.

Blightsteel Colossus seems great here, and id recommend Preordain, also maybe some stax pieces like Winter Orb or Ensnaring Bridge if you want your friends to really hate you. Darksteel Forge could be nice too.

Hey! This is a really fun looking deck! I'd like to make a few suggestions if that is cool:

Stoic Rebuttal: there is no reason to run this over Counterspell or really any other counter spell

AEtherize. Aetherspouts, Propaganda, and Dissipation Field are great for protection.

Strixhaven Stadium: can act as an alternate win con

Lotus Field, Lotus Vale, and Manascape Refractor can help if you are unable to keep Winter Orb untapped for your turn so you can play what you need to.

Maybe add some big bois like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Blightsteel Colossus as other win cons and utilize the large amounts of mana you generate.

Metalworker: I know he is pricey but it is hilarious to Turn 2 a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

In a stereotypical condescending Comic book guy voice

Umm, excuse me, this isn't below 100 and is therefore not "budget."

All jokes aside, anyone could put this together cheaply, most people have some of the more "expensive" cards anyways.

It is fairly solid, I have been thinking of building something similar (Birb Goes Brrrrrrrrrrrr)

You could probably fit in some Winter Orb Like cards like Hokori, Dust Drinker and Rising Waters

I wish I had seen this deck sooner as I could have used it as a spring board for the Derevi list I have been wanting to build. I really like this list.

I've got an Urza deck of my own, and I prefer having something like Thassa's Oracle or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries in order to win on the spot once you exile your entire library with infinite mana. Monoblue has no lack of card draw spells so this is more nitpicky than anything, but Jace or the Oracle can win with just themselves once you've emptied your library instead of having to cast Lab Man then cast a draw spell. I also enjoy Karn, the Great Creator to slow your opponents' ramp down or lock them out of the game with Mycosynth Lattice, kill their 0-drop rocks by animating them into 0/0s, or return a vital artifact combo piece from exile if needed. And since you're running Rings of Brighthearth already, you might like the Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth combo to generate infinite colorless mana, then you can use that colorless to generate infinite blue by tapping the Monolith for U instead of CCC if you need to cast stuff from your hand.

I also couldn't help but notice that you aren't running anything particularly cruel like Tsabo's Web (which doesn't care if it's tapped or untapped), Static Orb or Winter Orb which you can tap for mana on the end step before your turn to be unaffected by them, or Back to Basics. And you seem to be lacking some removal spells for on-board problems - some good ones to possibly consider are Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Ravenform, Reality Shift, and Imprisoned in the Moon.

I built an Oloro deck that was mono black discard, though not sure it that fits off-theme enough. Also, Oloro is popular, I just choose a theme not associated with him.

You could go super janky and go ball/sphere tribal. Anything with a ball in the art like Doomsday or Winter Orb.

Commanders like Zendru and Blim could also be good choices. You would be on theme with gift giving but your gifts could be just odd world enchantments like Concordant Crossroads or Price of Glory. They could be good just based on their range since you could gift anything.

Not sure if I hit any nails on the head but those are my first thoughts.

Gidgetimer on Can I tap Squirrel Nest …

4 months ago

I'm not trying to be pedantic (and thus this is going to be super pedantic). You tap the land enchanted with Squirrel Nest to create the squirrel, not the nest itself. This may matter for stuff like Winter Orb or even just how much mana you can tap for and still be able to tap that specific land for a squirrel instead of mana.
