Azdranax on For Whom The Belle Tolls - An Enchanted Tale

Thanks for the upvote Nerdytimesorwhatever, your timing was perfect in asking that question, as I got to play the deck for the first time in months the day before. I cut a couple cards - Crop Rotation and Land Tax , as they didn't have much impact when drawn, as I found myself wanting more auras or answers to threats instead. I also removed Daybreak Coronet for now, as it just feels like a win-more aura rather than a game-breaker. In those card slots, I added Mark of Fury , Kithkin Armor and Flickering Ward , which I'm not sure why I didn't have in the deck previously, as 1-cmc options that provide solid evasion or haste and two that can recur themselves to help cantrip my enchatresses were immediate upgrades.

As far as top performers go, Spirit Mantle , Spirit en-Dal and Seize the Day are always welcome sights, as they result in a very high win probability once Uril hits the board. As fun as the deck is though, it's very difficult to play in my meta with more than one opponent, as I play a lot of cEDH, and this deck will draw all the hate from others even as the combo decks prepare to end the game. 1v1 is where it shines most, and then it's a real handful.

Not bad! May want to change to EDH type and you have to add your landbase. I'd suggest 36 lands, so you'll need to cut a few others.

I'd also suggest some extra support cards, specifically Retether and Three Dreams.

3 or less CMC value cards to consider ( not auto-includes, just value to consider )

Blessing of Leeches lose 1 life on your upkeep, unlimited regenerate creature. Too powerful not to include.

Asha's Favor Vigilance, First Strike

Aspect of Gorgon +1/+3 and Deathtouch

Cartouche of Ambition Lifelink and a -1/-1 counter on a creature of your choice.

Awesome Presence Offensive version of Propaganda.

Cho-Manno's Blessing Protection from colour of choice. Good for preventing damage and becoming unblockable.

Chromatic Armor Protection from colours of choice on the fly for mana.

Cloak of Mists Unblockable

Crab Umbra Pay 3 mana to untap Zur and it has totem armor.

Curiosity Draw cards when Zur deals any damage.

Daily Regimen 2 mana to put a permanent +1/+1 counter on creature as many times as you want.

Daybreak Coronet Bit more expensive, but 2 mana, +3/+3 first strike, vigilance and lifelink.

False Demise Cheat death once.

Glistening Oil infect for 2 mana.

Infinite Authority punishes opponents and rewards you with +1/+1 counters if they attack or block you.

Invisibility unblockable

Kithkin Armor 1 mana unblockable by power 3 or greater and sac the aura for prevention of damage to zur from one source

Pemmin's Aura On demand 1 mana shroud for turn and 1 mana to untap zur

Pretender's Claim tap down all lands defending player controlls

The 5 scarabs Red Scarab Blue Scarab Black Scarab Green Scarab White Scarab

Sadistic Glee +1/+1 counter every time any creature dies.

Shade's Form Pay 1 black as many times as you want to give creature +1/+1 until end of turn and when creature dies, return it to the battlefield under your control.

Skeletal Grimace +1/+1 and pay 1 black to regenerate this creature.

Sleeper's Robe Fear and draw a card when you deal combat damage

Strange Augmentation +1/+1 base, potentially +3/+3 for one mana if you have a few different types of cards in your graveyard.

Sultai Runemark +2/+2 deathtouch

Traveler's Cloak Draw a card and Zur gets landwalk for a land type of your choice.

Triclopean Sight Untaps Zur, gives him +1/+1 and vigilance.

Unholy Strength 1 mana +2/+1

auto-includes:Pariah Save's your ass. Pair with indestructability to ignore damage.

Auramancer's Guise +2/+2 for each enchantment. Very overpowered.

Entangler Zur can block all the creatures.

Righteous Authority Esper has +1/+1 buff problems. This will buff Zur significantly and give you additional card draw. With blue and black in your arsenal, card draw shouldn't be a problem.

Sage's Reverie Big +1/+1 buff and big card draw. Play late to mid game to turn Zur from a wimp into one shot killer.

PlayingWithPowerMTG on uril smash

Since you are going Voltron, go all in. It's already a glass cannon anyway, so you might as well embrace it.

You need a lot more draw. You may be able to get better draw from auras like Keen Sense, Sixth Sense, Angelic Gift, etc. White and Red are terrible at draw, so you'll have to rely on green and artifacts for better draw. Sylvan Library, Harmonize, Hunter's Insight, and Soul's Majesty will work for your deck. Also using the enchantress package your using now will work great. Shoot for around 10 Draw spells.

Next, you need a lot more ramp. You have a few spells, but you need more. Shoot either for creatures that can be used as chump blockers, or auras. Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Wood Elves, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Farhaven Elf and One with Nature. Shoot for around 10 designated ramp spells.

Next, lower your mana curve. Right now, your average CMC is around 3. Meaning on average, it will cost around 8 mana to cast and enchant him in one turn. So that gives your opponents 8 turns to win before you, or find an answer to him. Try to stick to mostly 1 and 2 CMC auras as much as possible, especially since Uril already gets a buff from enchanting him. If you have any sort of higher cost aura, make sure it is a blowout aura (like Ancestral Mask or Angelic Destiny).

Also, if you lower your curve, adding Genesis Wave can become an absolute devastator.

Next, since it's voltron, use evasion as much as possible. Menace, Flying, Unblockable, Trample,etc. Auras can get you there. Flickering Ward, Gryff's Boon, Kithkin Armor, Alpha Authority, Angelic Gift, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Fists of Ironwood, Giant Spectacle, etc.

Deck is coming along great! Can't wait to play against it!

erendil on Shu Yun, the Irresistible Force

2 years ago

Looking good! I've built a Shu Yun deck similar to this in the past, and he's fun to play. One thing I can say for certain is that 3+ drop mana rocks (with the possible exception of coalition relic.... okay, okay MAYBE the lantern) are too slow. I highly recommend slimming down to all two drop rocks. Also protection should be a bigger factor. Once your enemies realize that you're running "One-punch-man" you'll be getting ALL the hate. no one wants to let him swing when it means someone's leaving the game. He'll wind up costing 9 mana before you realize it unless you invest in some protection. The absolute best protection in the game is Vanishing. worth the two mana to be able to say Shu yun doesn't exist till your next turn if need be. also Apostle's Blessing and the hoard of cards with similar cost/ effect. Kithkin Armor is good too. at least all the cantrips that give protection. also unblockable is a MUST. as much as you can fit in. Aqueous Form needs to be mainboarded for sure. You NEED unblockable reliably every game. Can't overstate that. It sucks when one punch man hits a bird token (he's a monk, it makes him sad ;P) or just gets blocked and killed. (yes I see you have some, but they are mostly instants so he's only unblockable for a turn or two). Taigams Strike is expensive the first turn but free the next so I think it's worth it. Keep rocking man! Love for the silent tempest always! Oh also, almost forgot, since you have a Sword of Feast and Famine why not round out the win condition with Aggravated Assault for infinite attack phases? (I would swap for World at War)
