KayneMarco on Nath the Discard King

Here’s a few ideas for you to kick around that would really add to the strong discard theme:

KayneMarco on Nath, Gilt-Leaf Discard

Here’s a few cards to consider:

These two cards are iffy but something to think about.

Since you went full discard theme got a few possible additions for ya.

The mind slash would work great because of the token production you have.

KayneMarco on Zur Discard Enchantments

5 months ago

A few possible additions that would be good in this deck are:

I know you don’t have much for creatures to feed mind slash if you like it but there are plenty of token producing enchantments in esper colors that can be Zured out that do make lots of tokens to feed it.

There’s a lot more I could suggest but won’t for now. I absolutely do love the direction you’re taking this Zur deck though. Very original. +1 from me.

Haha, I actually meant to mention Oloro to you as he seemed like something I thought you would like, I just forgot to. This will be a super slow, grindy deck. Many people will not enjoy playing against it. I'd love it, but it will be difficult to make friends as a newer player. :p

Cards like Caress and Megrim really require you to have ways to refill your opponents hand. Cards like, but not limited to Font of Mythos and Dictate of Kruphix will be your friend here. Also, look for as many recurring discard effects as you can. Look for creatures, enchantments, artifacts, and planeswalkers if at all possible. I recommend some of these:

Nezumi Shortfang

Hypnotic Specter

Siren of the Silent Song

Words of Waste

Creeping Dread

Cunning Advisor

Raiders' Wake

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei

painful quandry

Myojin of Night's Reach

Ramp is also important look for mana rocks such as Mana Vault or Thran Dynamo. Ramp on creatures can also be awesome. Talking about Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast. Both of which combo exceedingly well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

The Rack and Shrieking Affliction will be good tools to help you ping your opponents to death.

KayneMarco on Zur, Look mom! No hands!

Big +1 from me. Love seeing original Zur decks. Seems like half the Zur decks Ive seen here are doomsday/labman/ad nauseum decks. A discard theme to a Zur deck is just awesome. Only card I could think of that would really add to the discard theme is Cao Cao, Lord of Wei
