There's definitely something in it, you might find it simply works better if you don't go hard on the cycling and have it more sub-theme. Either that or go less zombie-y and abuse Astral Slide some more :)

Oh, it shimmer zur, the most competitive Zur list, he was mentioning that Zur would be a more competitive commander using Astral Slide, so I was just mentioning that if they wanted the most competitive Zur list, something like Zur Ad Nauseam Storm would be the way to go.

On another note, it is nice to have you back. Morality Shift+Replenish wins the game one way or antoher, but it is really big in terms of mana cost, so I don't think it should be run.

Crucible of Worlds is another card I don't think is nessecary, unless a lot of Armageddon effects are being run in your playgroup. You could use it with Cataclysm, and with a voltron commander it might work out.

SynergyBuild I was just entertaining a different way to build Chromium, the Mutable. If you want effectiveness take out Chromium, the Mutable and instead play Zur the Enchanter. Same deck but 3 turns earlier and you play Astral Slide.

The only Zur deck I've seen focuses on Astral Slide and cycling, so I don't know if I can offer much advice but I'll try.

First, I know the point is to 'cheat' enchantments into play with Zur, but a couple more lands wouldn't hurt, especially lands that make white. The deck is 2/3 white and under 1/3 of your mana gives you white. I also suggest removing Spirit of the Labyrinth because it looks like it hurts you quite a bit (all the enchantresses, Sram, etc.). Disenchant is useful to go with your targeted creature removal. Also Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Return to Dust, and Cyclonic Rift, all pretty good staples. Lightning Greaves makes it so even you can't target Zur and that's a bad thing. Path of Ancestry doesn't do much for you since you have so few creatures and so few of them share a creature type with Zur.

landofMordor: My problem with Muldrotha is that everyone and their mother has a deck with her. The beauty with Astral Slide is that, at the very worst, is an attack deterrent. I'd add Muldrotha if I was going Atraxa colors.

I just had an epiphany after reading that second part. I think this is it:

Cycling abilities you activate cost up to less to activate.

Whenever you discard a card, scry 1.

If I got the stack rules right, you can put the triggers so the scry resolves first, then draw from the cycling ability.

I mean, if you're not trying to use Astral Slide, then Muldrotha, the Gravetide synergizes super well with cycling.

As for your custom card, I think your second try is closer. You could shift it a bit to say "whenever you discard a card from your hand, scry 1" to make it more generic, but I don't think you'd need to change anything as is.

Awesome use of Astral Slide! I've never seen a deck like this before, nicely done.

ThatGrimGuy: you can use any 5C commander... the commander is pretty irrelevant beyond color.

if you want more functionality, try using Astral Slide in a cycling deck. i don't use it here, because i don't care about the ETBs for the most part.
