Halls of Mist is fun, Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze, Labyrinth of Skophos all deal with attackers. Another way to deal with creatures is with removal: enter Quicksand and Mouth of Ronom. When protecting your own creatures Yavimaya Hollow is the best. With your general being a 6/6 Arena will kill quite a few unfortunate souls.

Petrified Field is great for recursion of valuable lands, Tolaria West will find the valuable lands and when paired with the field you get two tutors.

Soldevi Excavations is good filtering on a land, Search for Azcanta  Flip is great for finding noncreature spells; however, note that it also cannot get lands. Halimar Depths is a one time top deck filter, you have to decide whether entering tapped is small enough to ignore. Castle Vantress is going to be the best land for this, four mana plus a tap is expensive though.

All creature lands are great, but given enough mana Urza's Factory is even better, just pumping out creatures. Hostile Desert takes advantage of all the lands that will undoubtedly be entering your graveyard. Of course the aforementioned Field of the Dead is the best at generating blockers and possibly attackers.

why not running Mindcrank with Bloodchief Ascension ? and Maze of Ith with Crawlspace. I like your list, I wanted to build a Mogis that way .

Hey Matrixxx999, it has been a while since I've updated this page, but now that I have I wanted to respond. First, thank you for the suggestion on an "offensive" way in which the Maze can be used when paired with the Elder!

Second, Manglehorn didn't exist when I put this deck together originally. Over time, as the deck has shifted, I've somehow always held on to the Uktabi Orangutan, whether it was a way to safeguard against an elf-lockdown, or maybe it was just because of the art :).

1) ok, i switched it from Arbor Elf to Chrome Mox. my biggest issue rn is that a lot of the mana dorks produce green and it has slowd me down a turn.

2) i really only have 34 lands as 3 of them arnt actually used as lands Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, Malakir Rebirth  Flip.

3) i do need better tutors, Diabolic Tutor cost way 2 much, even though this deck produces a stupid amount of mana.

4) regarding cards like Tectonic Reformation id rather have more tutors.

5) i have enough haste providers, when i do cast my commander i wouldn't have enough mana to activate his ability anyways, i have enough haste providers where it might help if the game lasts longer.

smilodex on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

Thanks for your comment, but the list is for multiplayer commanders, not 1vs1 Duel Commander.

The way you portray it, you seem to be playing him as a Voltron Commander, but Zilortha, Strength Incarnate unfortunately has 0 value, 0 protection and 0 evasion printed on itself and is in principle "only" a 5 mana 7/3 with trample and with a small upside if you build your deck around ...

I would spontaneously think of 5+ stronger Voltron commanders (Sigarda, Host of Herons, Geist of Saint Traft, Uril, the Miststalker, Rafiq of the Many...), who are better suited for the voltron plan than Zilo. I have no doubt that he is quick to box players out, but even 7 games say very little. It also depends on what and who you have played against and whether it is 1vs1 games or multiplayer games. Voltron is a valid strategy in 1vs1 matches (frenchban / duel commander), but voltron decks have the problem that they often run out of gas. You can easily kill 1-2 opponents and are then often stopped because you are extremely susceptible to removal, counterspells, bounce effects, mass ench/artifact removal, boardwipes, sac effects, deathtouch and cards like Moat, Peacekeeper & Maze of Ith (which is why Volotron commander should preferably have either Hexproof or Indestructible). But you can convince me of the opposite by sending me your deck list, although as I said, I can't think of anything relevant that Zilo does better than the commanders mentioned above.

I'd say all of the lands you listed except for Maze of Ith. Fetchlands and shocklands are the best thing you can do your for landbase outside of the original duals (which are hundreds each). In a 5-colour deck you're already limited on how many types of lands you can have, and Maze of Ith doesn't do much notable for a deck like this IMO. If you're going this deep into expensive lands and tutors, I highly recommend picking up a Mana Confluence, City of Brass, and Forbidden Orchard. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is an auto-include in any 2+ colour deck that features Black and can be tapped for Black itself. Ancient Tomb is amazing in decks with lots of colourless requirements like this. Prismatic Vista is very good too though less on the priority list for its price.

If you're going to be investing a lot into lands, make sure you make a faux list before buying anything since you don't want to get excess that you won't use. My personal general priority for 5-colour (ignoring OG duals) goes:

Rainbow (Command Tower/City of Brass/Mana Confluence/Forbidden Orchard), fetchlands (Arid Mesa/Prismatic Vista), shocklands (Hallowed Fountain), bondlands (Spire Garden), basics.

Assuming you take just what I listed there that puts you at 30 lands (minus basics). That gives you room for cards like Cavern of Souls, Reflecting Pool, Exotic Orchard, etc. Of course it totally comes down to how much you want to sink into your landbase, but it's a good place to start before tweaking things to your preference. You should keep at least one of each basic, or at least your main colours' basics for backup fetching. Battlelands like Sunken Hollow lose value the more you optimized your landbase due to lack of backs but are still good to take over say, bondlands. Since you already have them they'll do fine while also having the bonus of being tutored out by fetchlands.

Now that the wall of land-related text is over, time for the other cards you listed. Demonic Tutor is top tier, definitely get it if you have the money. Also look at Vampiric Tutor and Worldly Tutor. I personally like Dromoka, the Eternal, Kaalia of the Vast you already know how I recommend it, and Nesting Dragon is decent as a card but I don't think it'd work well here since you don't have a way to easily pop the eggs yourself. Future Sight is okay but I personally wouldn't run it in Ur-Dragon. Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator I personally just take more mana rocks over but in your slower meta they could be decent picks. Mirari's Wake is amazing, and Nature's Lore you already know.

Since you're going this much into the deep end, once you get everything else set up first there's always the $$$$$ rocks like Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Chrome Mox, and god forbid Mox Diamond waiting for you. Just, you know, they're worth entire decks alone so only go for them once you're fully satisfied on the rest of the deck lmfao

As for Force of Vigor I'd personally just cut Kilnmouth Dragon for it. Kilnmouth costs way too much mana for its effect when it'll generally have no counters, or at most 1-2 batches on it.
