This is the deck list and primer for mono-blue's most powerful commander, Urza, Lord High Artificer, This is a combo deck which aims to slow down our opponents using stax pieces, create infinite mana by cheating Hullbreaker Horror into play, and dump infinite mana into Urza, Lord High Artificer's third ability to play the entire library.

Hullbreaker Horror + 2 artifacts which together are mana positive = Infinite mana

Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter + 3+ mana from artifacts = Infinite mana

Grim Monolith + Power Artifact = Infinite mana

Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter + Sensei's Divining Top = Infinite draw

Hullbreaker Horror + Arcum's Astrolabe + Mana positive artifact = Infinite draw

Counterbalance: Stax piece that benefits from our low mana curve.

Winds of Rebuke: Safe creature removal, top-deck tutor hate, and a versatile combo piece.

Pithing Needle: Easily tutored, cheap stax piece that shuts down many strategies.

Dig Through Time/Impulse: Dig spells that don’t reveal information.

Mystic Remora/Rhystic Study: Continuous draw engines.

War Room/Eye of Vecna: Repeatable draw engines.

Recurring Insight/Sea Gate Restoration  : Mass card draw.

Timetwister/Windfall: Refill our hand. Versatile wheel spells.

Ponder/Brainstorm: Provide cheap card selection and draw cards off the top of our library.

Cephalid Coliseum: Provides late game card selection and shuts down Thassa's Oracle.

Resculpt/Pongify: Spot removal.

An Offer You Can't Refuse: Ramps our opponents.

Chain of Vapor: Losing Urza, Lord High Artificer, a Construct token, or a stax piece hurts us a lot.

Preordain: Does not dig deep enough.

Urza's Bauble: Looking at a random card in an opponent’s hand is irrelevant.

Memory Deluge: Prioritizes card advantage over card selection.

When assembling Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combos from exile, first move Dramatic Reversal into your hand by casting it, then targeting it with Narset's Reversal

Cast multiple wheels with Narset, Parter of Veils in play to reduce your opponents's hands to 0
