VelvetVendetta on Zur, the Enchanter Reanimator

Depends on your meta, bojuka bog is solid since you're using Expedition Map AND Tolaria West.

On my meta tho things are way too freaking fast, so I was in craving some sort of hyper efficient artifact hate, with that came the decision of including Engineered Explosives and its tutor (aside from Tolaria West) Trinket Mage, and once using Trinket Mage I felt it was worth adding Tormod's Crypt. (being tutorable by both Tolaria West and Triket Mage, like Engineered Explosives)

But if in your meta there's no need for Engineered Explosives, you just need grave hate, then Angel of Serenity and Bojuka Bog are the best options. Serenity seems stronger to me than Finality because it can be used to recur your creatures back to the hand, to exile graveyard combos on the angel and finally to clear the board of threats against aggros or other reanimators, depending on your meta I would take our either Resolute Archangel (and add some land that helps protecting against aggro decks like Maze of Ith or Kor Haven) or Elesh Norn (Its a nice creature against some strats, but I just don't think its needed).

You could also take out Pact of Negation since it is unable to help you when casting Armageddon, Ravages of War and Cataclysm, your most powerful spells, so while strong, is a bit underwhelming on this deck.

If you got any more questions fell free to ask.

@Profet93 and basically everbody that would like to comment on this deck, here is what I feel is the weak part of this deck and try to improve.

The deck plays a bit like a goldfish and does not have a lot of flexibility in terms of having access to your deck through tutors like you have in blue or black decks (Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor ect.). So the opening hand pretty much determines how the game will play out for you by either having a fast combo hand or a rather slow staxy hand (and with luck you have both aspects in your hand). And there is little you can do about this during the game, it's not like you can Timetwister, draw a new hand, put some 0 mana artifacts into play and combo off. So in that regard I was thinking about putting in more tutors like Survival of the Fittest, Open the Armory, Heliod's Pilgrim, Chord of Calling, Recruiter of the Guard, Eldritch Evolution.

But then again this will lower my enchantment count drastically and thus will have negative impact on my draw-engine. Also those tutors are not super fast and often you cannot afford to waste a turn and would rather go with an immediate threat/answer. Therefore I am considering to put more hate into the deck instead like Ravages of War, Thorn of Amethyst and so on.

So what I am looking for would be cheap mass draw cards or nice tutor cards that I have not yet listed in this comment or am playing already. If you know of any other enchantment (or non-artifact) ramp that can make this deck faster, please let me know.

Cheers, Noc

I assume the lack of Academy Rector and Heliod's Pilgrim is intentional? What about redundancy for Rule of Law, like Eidolon of Rhetoric? And redundancy for Armageddon in the form of Ravages of War?

As for cuts, I think Tangle Wire loses out on effectiveness quite quickly. I would rather run Linvala, Keeper of Silence to hate on dorks. Also missing Fellwar Stone here, seems faster than Coalition Relic in most cases.

And this has nothing to do with magic but in the line

"Intuition for Snapcaster Mage+Reanimate+Any Spell (probably Cataclysm/Ravages of War/Armageddon/Replenish) will make sure that the spell will be casted, one way or another."

It should just say Cast not Casted. English is weird and cast is the same for the past and future tense. So you say I am going to cast the spell. Or I have cast the spell. The only time the word cast changes is for the present tense. So you would say I am casting the spell but you never say casted for this word specifically. I hope that makes sense.

Repeatable removal against x/1s: Liliana, the Last Hope and Izzet Staticaster.

Stubborn Denial and Countersquall are better Negates in some lists.

Nihil Spellbomb can wipe graveyard one sidedly like Tormod's Crypt and it cycles like Relic of Progenitus. Also leaving a mana open is only needed for drawing a card and it can be used just to exile the grave, if needed when tappedout.

Ceremonious Rejection is great against, affinity, eldrazi and tron.

Zealous Persecution, is great in wide strategies against x/1s. It's not as flexible as Golgari Charm, but it does thas one mode better and is on different colours.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet fits in some black midrange decks sideboars to fight aggressive decks. Everything that applies to Rhox War Monk applies here and in addition, it stops some graveyard synergies like Kitchen Finks and Voice of Resurgence and 2/2 zombies are quite helpful for blocking.

My last suggestion to the list is Ajani Vengeant. It is good against most of the mid-rangey lists. Keeping manland, Tarmo or DS tapped down is useful, helix is not bad either and one sided Ravages of War wins game.

...aaaaand I just now realize you run Armageddon. Promo Ravages of War could still be added for that oppressive redundancy?

Sphere of Resistance and Trinisphere both fit the theme and are particularly good. The latter pairs well with Sanctum Prelate.

Also, let me say that I have no clue how this deck is "100% casual"...

Lastly, if you add more artifact ramp (which I know is not the easiest in DC, let alone blue-white) you might try out some MLD. Run Ravages of War / Armageddon, possibly?

Anyway, solid deck my friend!
