Ah... a necropotence-based stax/control list for this Zur. Interesting. Do you ever find the Empyrial Armor / Steel of the Godhead line to be a little too clunky/cute?

Also, would Copy Enchantment be too cute? It copies a Greater Auramancy , allowing you to get shroud on all enchantments you control, or doubling a Rhystic Study / Empyrial Armor / Aura of Silence effect, making it a worse Estrid's Invocation , but it may have enough utility as a 3rd of an enchantment to see use here.

I'm just curious what your thoughts are on Humility since it's such an oppressive effect that you have immediate access to with Zur. You wouldn't necessarily lose your Voltron win con either if you drop a Humility before Empyrial Armor and Cartouche of Ambition because the earlier timestamp of Humility would allow Zur to retain the effects from Empyrial and Cartouche, but it would remove these effects if it came out afterward instead for example.

Something to think about. I think your deck can work around a timely Humility really well and cause most decks in the current cEDH metagame to struggle until they can find an answer. It feels incredibly viable and seems like your deck isn't even hit as hard as HEMAN lists that are constructed around the card.

Maybe an Empyrial Armor or two, for when your opponent sides all their removal out

I've spent some time switching between the two. I'm currently running Empyrial Armor as you can get a lot of damage in quickly with Necropotence. Ethereal Armor is more consistent but is more tricky to set up. Both are fine choices and if you want to go more in on voltron you could even run both.

@AquaticAce26, yeah, Luminarch Ascension is a fine win con - it definitely has synergy with the deck and the plan. The win cons in the deck can be a little fragile - like if you have Rest in Peace and someone destroys your Helm of Obedience, you have to shift to the other win. So in that sense, a third one-card win con is ok. On the other hand, having a very few dead cards for combo slots or wincons is one of the strengths of the deck. You could drop the voltron cards (Empyrial Armor and Cartouche of Ambition) and add Luminarch Ascension and maybe Replenish, if you want to stay at 2 wincons. Or you can just add it and go up to 3.

I'd probably try another board wipe against those decks instead of Illness in the Ranks. Massacre or Yahenni's Expertise. They're both vulnerable from their creature mana. I'd probably want to play another GY hoser, maybe leyline or Planar Void, which should help against blood pod and tasigur. Yeah.

I hear you on card prices... even 2 years ago Tabernacle was 400$. Should have bought a playset then. :/

wouldnt Ethereal Armor be more effective than Empyrial Armor

Looks like when things are going right, you'll have a lot of mana, maybe some x based draw spells would be great finishers. Prosperity is fun for politics, Braingeyser is busted, Stroke of Genius is the middle ground, but draw is great and has synergies with your Empyrial Armor cards.

I love the deck, definitely one of my favorite commanders from the set. Any commander that has its own built in card draw advantage engine built in for 3 mana should not be underestimated. My only suggestion is to add in some auras that can beef up Tuvasa, maybe Battle Mastery or Empyrial Armor
