Hi! Wow!

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words, advice, and upvote! I'm glad you like what I have so far for the description. I always get those up before asking for help on decks because if there's no description it's near impossible to help. Anyway, I wanted to make a Intruder Alarm combo deck and a Zur deck, so putting them together seem perfect! I wanted a really unique deck since my last deck was heavily based on someone else's.

I see your point about streamlining the combos. I've been worrying I was going a little too far in some places(especially with #2) and I agree with your assesment.

Combo #1

Yeah those two creatures, Steward of Solidarity, and Necrotic Ooze(with them in the 'yard) is the main game plan. All others are secondary and may be cut. I know the Steward isn't as good and is near useless alone but I needed some consistency without having to cash out for Demonic Tutor haha

Sun Titan is great. He hits half my deck :)

Standstill seems okay. It looks kinda easy to play around and doesn't help me if my opponent's board presence is greater. Still, I'll consider it.

Yeah, the lack of haste in the colors is killer. Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves and their tutors, and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all I have atm. The pillowfort strategy how I live the extra turn to win and I'm glad you noticed and appreciated that!

Grand Abolisher, Shielded by Faith, and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir are all being considered. Great suggestions!

I agree with you about all the extra creatures, but I'll keep Steward of Solidarity for now because of the cheap cost and because Sun Titan can get her back.

Combo #2

Yeah, honestly... someone telling me I'm overcommiting on #2 is exactly what I needed. You're right haha

I'll probably end up shuffling this part around a bit. I like the schoolmaster and I like how he can also combo with Sunstrike Legionnaire. I'll leave them, Hermetic Study, and Psionic Gift, then probably toss the rest.

Vedalken AEthermage is good. I'll pick one up!

Combo #3

Gray Merchant of Asphodel will probably be cut but Hell's Caretaker has a lot of synergy with my recursion package of Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Sun Titan, Fiend Hunter, and Auramancer. He's just generally very good and near infinite with Alarm out. I'll ditch the combo but I think he can slide into another category.

While all that's going on.

I've decided Suture Priest and Soul Warden are out. Altar of the Brood and Hair-Strung Koto will stay for now.

I like Trinket Mage because he's a cheap tutor, but I don't have many other targets for him.

Martyr's Cause is one I have actually! I haven't tested it out yet but we'll see!

After streamlining Combo #1 and Combo #2 here's what they could look like:

Thanks for laying everything out for my like that! Extremely helpful!

I like that way of looking at it. Pillowfort first, combo second. Thanks for that advice!

Again, thanks for laying all the suggestions out like this! It's especially helpful when you've already talked about the deck a ton and now you're giving the suggestions to go off of what you've already said. I'm finding this extremely helpful and will try to do it like this when I help people!

Ethereal Armor is an easy addition. I already have one so I'll throw it in there!

Empyrial Armor will be good when I get my Necropotence!

Once again, loving the summarized lists. It's nice to see what the deck could look like in this way. You are good at what you do friend. You deserve that top helper rank.

I'm glad you recognize some creativity and uniqueness in the deck. I'll gladly take all of your advise into consideration.

I'm going to be updating the deck soon, perhaps this weekend. I'd love it if you'd look at it again once I do... though I know you've definitely spent a lot of time on it haha! Let me know if it'd be okay to tag you or something :)

My sincerest thanks!

Hey, you asked for my advice on your Zur deck. You've put a lot of time and effort into it and the deck description is easy to read and understand very nice work. I've never seen Zur used with Alarm as a win condition combo. Very creative idea, well done, upvoted. For a first deck with combo you've gone combo crazy!

The idea is great the problem is the combos need to be streamlined, too many combo cards not enough synergy between all cards in the deck and not enough universal good Commander cards. You don't need to jam all the possible combos into a deck it's overkill. Consider trimming Combo #1, Combo #2 and cutting Combo #3? A lot of combo cards you're playing are only good with other combo pieces as part of a combo. These cards are not good by themselves or have synergy with the rest of the cards in the deck other than the combo they go with. Because of all the combo cards I see problems with playing a normal game of Commander.


Show

Your deck is very creative as a first deck with combo, you have a good grasp on the archetype. But you're going combo crazy which in my opinion will hinter gameplay much more than help it. It's more practical to pick a few combos that include cards that have overall good synergy with the entire deck not to use so many cards just because they're part of a combo.

Good luck with your deck.


Metroid_Hybrid on Mono-color deck challenge..

1 week ago

Some guys at work are putting together Modern-legal, Mono-colored decks for some of the long downtimes at work this month.. Most of them are expecting me to go Mono-Black, however Im going a different route here.. I wanted something powerful, yet something so incredibly unique that they have never seen before.. I came up with something that fits these criteria, yet would lose HARD post-sideboard in a normal tournament environment; Mono-White Tempered Steel Infect w/ Ethereal Armor..

I originally built this a few years ago, and therefore may be neglecting some other powerful spells printed since then. I also dont actually have a sideboard built IRL yet either; Im primarily concerned with streamlining the Mainboards effectiveness first..

Hey, consider cutting lands? You don't need 45x lands that's overkill, 36-38x Plains is enough. You could cut the lands for more cheap mana cost equipment, all are budget:

These are all 0 mana cost artifacts, great with Sram and Puresteel Paladin as draw.

Here's more suggestions:

Armory and Pilgrim are great budget tutors. Warhammer and Mask is nice budget equipment. Armor and Mantle are powerful low mana cost auras. Conviction is good because you can bounce it back to your hand and play it again to draw again. Steelshaper and Shikari are good support creatures.

Some white budget Commander staples to consider adding are:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, I just wanted to point out that Enchanted Evening + Ethereal Armor + Azorius First-Wing doesn't work because Azorius First-Wing can't be enchanted by Ethereal Armor. Otherwise, this looks like a really cool deck.

What about Ethereal Armor

tetsuothecat thank you SO much for commenting!!!

Great call on Ethereal Armor, being an enchantment and costing (1) less makes it strictly better than Helm of the Gods. Pity though as I love the art on Helm.

I had Herald of the Pantheon in the deck before but opted to drop it for more Wild Growth style effects that are part of my infinite mana combo with Earthcraft. If you can see any weaker cards I am running that you would switch for Herald please let me know!

Does my mana base look ok to you? Cheers!

I think she's actually a pretty viable voltron commander. She already has deathtouch and haste just imagine her with Ethereal Armor and something that grants her either flying or trample!

swinging out with her will leave you open and someone will probably take the monarchy from you but really that just means that you get the assassin on your upkeep AND the card from monarchy as long as you take it back from them before the end of your turn.

so yea I think voltron or lots of anthems for your tokens maybe some life gain so you can take the hits when monarchy is getting exchanged back and forth.

on the other hand people like to pillowfort with her because they don't want to give the monarchy to anyone else and that seems viable too.
