Shrieking Affliction Discussion
3 days ago
Thanks, it means a lot to me especially because I started this deck from scratch.
I'll consider the introduction of Quest for the Nihil Stone and/or Shrieking Affliction to take advantage of the pretty common situation in which my opponents remain without any cards in hand and I basically stop doing damage. Those two cards were in a previous unrefined version of the list but didn't make the cut. Now with a few games played I am starting to see this issue.
Thanks again for the feedback!

A few possible additions that would be good in this deck are:
- Cao Cao, Lord of Wei
- Fell Specter
- Nezumi Shortfang
- Mind Slash
- Raiders' Wake
- Bloodchief Ascension
- Quest for the Nihil Stone
- Shrieking Affliction
- Words of Waste
I know you don’t have much for creatures to feed mind slash if you like it but there are plenty of token producing enchantments in esper colors that can be Zured out that do make lots of tokens to feed it.
There’s a lot more I could suggest but won’t for now. I absolutely do love the direction you’re taking this Zur deck though. Very original. +1 from me.

Have you considered a deck like 8-rack? It seems pretty similar to what you're trying to do here; you might want to take a look at a decklist for ideas. Especially good on a budget are Raven's Crime, Wrench Mind, The Rack, and Shrieking Affliction.

Maybe I'll continue working on Nath then. Outside of Nath himself, like let's say his tokens get removed somehow and everyone's hands are too empty to make more, what are the best alternate win cons? Grinding it out with Shrieking Affliction? Or do we just do something cliche like Protean Hulk?

ok, a couple of updates!
10-08-18 Played a super set against big affinity.
Game 1 - Held off my opponent with Fatal Push until i could drop an Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil. Bontu's Last Reckoning cleared all leftover creatures and The Rack coupled with Shrieking Affliction killed him.
Game 1 - My opponent emptied his hand fast making The Rack seem like a good turn 3 play. Ensnaring Bridge kept his creatures from swinging in until he dropped a huge Walking Ballista and shot me dead.
Game 2 - Emptied my opponent's hand and Surgical Extraction all his ballistas. all was going according to plan until he swung in under my bridge with Inkmoth Nexus and added counters to me with an animation module or something like that. I was holding a card i couldn't get rid of. Moved on to next set.
Game 3. Everything was going right. All cards were locked down by Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil until Walking Ballista came out and pinged me for my last 3 life. that was the set. Went 1-2 but was extremely fun and learned alot. This was good practice for the tournament happening the next day. Will post details of that tomorrow.

So it's easier to post updates in comments rather than post in updates.
Played against Abzan midrange 2 nights ago and went 2-1. Was stoked!
Game 2 - My opponent got so many creatures out that I could not keep up. Once I found a bridge he dropped Flickerwisp and swung in for lethal which was 24 I think?
Game 3 - God hand for me. Turn 1 IoK into Turn 2 Thoughtseize into Turns 3 & 4 Raven's Crime dropping a Liliana of the Veil turn 5 followed up in this order Ensnaring Bridge, Shrieking Affliction x2 and then The Rack. Was awesome.
May go to the local tournament this Tuesday, itching to take the deck out. Will see. Take care all.

I'd like to suggest replacing Phyrexian Arena with cards like Skeletal Scrying or Sign in Blood, that'll give you the option to choose when you're low on health. With the Arena you have no way of ridding yourself of it. Creature's like Tombstalker and Gurmag Angler are pretty good since you'll be filling your GY pretty fast.
