Just a guy with a silly name who plays a lot of Legacy and Commander.

Perhaps try out Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth over something like Chromatic Lantern and some other ramp.

Reasons: 1) They're cheaper, so they come down faster than some of the other ramp in the deck, and in the case of Lantern your mana base is already pretty baller.

2) They have hilariously explosive benefits with some select cards, such as Earthcraft and various other dorks like Arbor Elf . On a game over the weekend I went from 6 mana on turn 4 to 16 and won that same turn, mostly because the ability to pay 1 into Ghave to rebate 2 mana immediately is hilarious.

3) The auras have the benefit of, while being worse against Aura Shards, et al, they're better against creature board wipes which usually set even this deck behind a turn or so. Most people won't spend 1:1 removal like Nature's Claim on the auras, either, whereas I've seen some people cast early wipes like Toxic Deluge just to rid me of a couple mana dorks, banking on me keeping a low-land hand.

4) The final benefit is that on turns before you combo off, unlike dorks, these are essentially mana-neutral. Without Earthcraft, you can't tap Birds or something the turn you play it, but with Wild Growth/Utopia Sprawl, that isn't the case.

Just some food for thought. I made the change over a month ago and have greatly enjoyed the change.

Also, thanks for the shoutout in the deck description, bro ;)

No Battle Mastery seems like a weird exclusion. +2/+2 and double strike is huge- taking Uril from a 5 damage dealing chump to 14 in one spell. It's $.15 so it's great for the budget too.

Tilonalli's Crown and Madcap Skills are other ones I recommend. They're very cheap, and only 1R to give Uril +5 power and evasion is pretty great.

These seem better than Iona's Blessing and Scourge of the Nobilis, as they provide higher and more damage boosts. I would run them over Eternal Warrior as well, as I don't value Vigilance highly since it typically doesn't come down to face-beating contests when you have the creature that can kill in 1 hit vs your opponent's (and if all 3 opponents control more creatures, each player losing 1 creature a combat to ensure you don't get another turn will happen whether Uril has vigilance or not if you're the largest threat at the table and all three players decide that you need to be dealt with at once).
