I don't know what kind of theme or way of winning you are trying to go for. you don't really have a way to win with this deck. You need to get some kind of combo. Zur is very powerful because he can tutor an enchantment out of your deck so use that to your advantage and try to put in cards that are 3 or less so that your commander can have a greater effect. Try to go find an infinite combo or you can also build stax. You won't win consistently if you don't have an infinite combo. You might find other versions of zur on this site that are good (probably not). CEDH Reddit can probably help you out... though some of the things might be expensive. The things I suggested are just a couple relatively cheap cards that make a big impact. Try to have a theme in your deck whether it is control/combo or voltron or pillowfort.

I would change the format to modern as this isnt standard. Secondly, go all in on elves. Elvish Champion Imperious Perfect Masked Admirers Sylvan Messenger Lys Alana Huntmaster Reclamation Sage Gilt-Leaf Ambush. If you can afford to get good green/black lands you can open up a world of good carda like Thornbow Archer Shaman of the Pack Prowess of the Fair Elves of Deep Shadow Eyeblight's Ending Nameless Inversion

Wow I'm really stupid. I'm running Unmake in my EDH deck and didn't even realize it was common-level. Still though, it IS triple-B so I might only run one copy...
The current phase I'm in for decktesting is diversifying my portfolio of removal. Murder was kind of a placeholder but it worked surprisingly well so I just left it in so I could deal with other pressing issues this deck had (probably should have put that in the description lol). The issue I have with Eyeblight's Ending is minor and it's just a flavor gripe since it does have the elf subtype. Right now, thanks to your suggestions, here's the list I'm considering:
3x Agony Warp
I might cut Dewdrop Spy for Ninja of the Deep Hours because you're right that it doesn't help me as much. I always kinda thought that Latchkey Faerie was like Ninja of the Deep Hours if it were a faerie. At the time I thought that having to return something to your hand was kind of a bad trade for the NOTDH trigger but now I realize that with all the ETB effects these faeries have it could actually be a good thing.
Thanks for the suggestion, though! I really appreciate anyone who takes some time to help me make this deck better.

Just an FYI Sol Ring is not Modern Legal!
Delirium is all about having multiple card types in the graveyard, which is why Grapple with the Past is pretty good in this deck since it mills over different card types straight into the graveyard while still getting cards back that you'd rather have in hand to cast. I suggest going up on the numbers you have for that card.
some card types are more difficult to get in the graveyard than others. Sorceries simply need to be played but it can be difficult sometimes to get enchantments or artifacts in the graveyard. Here are some cards to help that.
Here are some cards that can help get more cards into your graveyard

Scavenging Ooze definitely needs to be included somewhere. I'm just unsure yet what to cut, a Courser? Garruk? Maybe in the sideboard instead of Kalitas or the Siphoners.
Thanks for the feedback!

I know you said you were only using cards you have, but these would be strong for the deck and are both cheap/easy to pick up. Another card that is more borderline would be Tireless Tracker, just to add some extra value for your limited creatures slot. Has some exceptional synergy with Courser of Kruphix also!

Welcome to EDH! How's this format treating you so far? How is it in comparison to other formats? And I love that commander too, even the art is beautiful. And besides my suggestions to make the deck stronger, you should look at "https://edhrec.com" to check out all the orzhov commanders and what cards are good for this commander. Check out "http://www.smileylich.com/mtg/magocracy/Magocracy_G1.html" as well for anything you can't find in the gatherer database. And look at "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im1VuV7-qSI", I thought that was a fun theory but that could just be my interest in math.
Anyway, onto my arguments for a better deck. Like Mortify or Hero's Downfall instead of Murder? Or Unmake/ Ruthless Disposal v Eyeblight's Ending/ Bone Splinters? Gotta love that removal. Forsake the Worldly has become a favorite of mine, I was so happy to see that in your deck. There's also some other cards like Utter End, Pontiff of Blight, etc that fits your theme well. I also love non-combat victories, so I would add more cards like Zulaport Cutthroat and Debt to the Deathless.
Now onto the hard decisions. Like High Priest of Penance v Angel of Deliverance. Each has it's own pros and cons, but I thought I should argue for it. I would also replace Unraveling Mummy as it only supports Khenra Eternal and Gravedigger. I'd argue for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk instead. I like where you were going with Gravedigger though, everyone needs some recursion. I'd argue for Phyrexian Reclamation or Ravos, Soultender to keep with the recursion, or load up some reanimation with Dread Return, Stitch Together, or Phyrexian Delver to keep with the ETB (enter the battlefield) effects. And if you want another general theme for the deck, consider Panharmonicon or Skybind. Lastly, you could include an infinite combo to make it more competitive, like Emeria Shepherd + Kor Cartographer to ramp all your Plains out.
So yah. I still love the deck and upvoted it, I just wanted to argue some cards and be devil's advocate. Also, EDH is my favorite format and I'm always here, so text me if you've any questions or need more help. Hope this helps

Great deck, man. +1
The only suggestions I'd have for this thing would definitely take it out of budget range :) but if you're willing to spend the extra dough Aether Vial would take this thing to the next level. Being able to flash in e-wit or your wayfinder/tribe elder would be sweet for some chump block/sac combos. Also may want to consider Collected Company to help speed up your ramp as well.
I do think you're light in two areas: land base and removal. Again, not really budget, but if you can afford some fetches, you'll be able to thin your deck out much quicker and get to your wincon... also contributes to delirium. Regarding removal, I definitely think you should check out Go for the Throat, Smother, Fatal Push and Tragic Slip instead of Eyeblight's Ending.
Love the brewiness
