Skirsdag High Priest Discussion

Hey, you asked for my advice on your Zur deck. You've put a lot of time and effort into it and the deck description is easy to read and understand very nice work. I've never seen Zur used with Alarm as a win condition combo. Very creative idea, well done, upvoted. For a first deck with combo you've gone combo crazy!

The idea is great the problem is the combos need to be streamlined, too many combo cards not enough synergy between all cards in the deck and not enough universal good Commander cards. You don't need to jam all the possible combos into a deck it's overkill. Consider trimming Combo #1, Combo #2 and cutting Combo #3? A lot of combo cards you're playing are only good with other combo pieces as part of a combo. These cards are not good by themselves or have synergy with the rest of the cards in the deck other than the combo they go with. Because of all the combo cards I see problems with playing a normal game of Commander.


Your deck is very creative as a first deck with combo, you have a good grasp on the archetype. But you're going combo crazy which in my opinion will hinter gameplay much more than help it. It's more practical to pick a few combos that include cards that have overall good synergy with the entire deck not to use so many cards just because they're part of a combo.

Good luck with your deck.

RazortoothMtg Thanks for your help! Zur the Enchanter is the commander. I know I'm missing out on Red and Green, great colors for Alarm combos, but I don't mind.

I'm still running some mana dorks, and Silver Myr could make Puppet Conjurer but that's it I think.

Altar of the Brood is perfect! Thank you!

Marrow-Gnawer seems to clunky but Skirsdag High Priest might work!

I like those tap outlets... especially Hair-Strung Koto which becomes another mill win-con.

Thanks again! If you have any more ideas hit me!

Gidgetimer Yes perfect!! I can't believe I didn't think of that! That enables Puppet Conjurer cards too! Thanks!

RazortoothMtg any other cards like puppet conjurer?

Who's the commander? Is there a specific reason we need to be Esper? Because Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Earthcraft, Glare of Subdual, Kyren Negotiations, and Llanowar Behemoth could all be good. It would also allow you to add Voyaging Satyr/Kiora's Follower + Intruder Alarm + Forbidden Orchard for another infinite, and allow you to add Birds of Paradise type cards so Puppet Conjurer type cards could be infinite.

For the Impact Tremors, you have Altar of the Brood kind of.

Tap for Token: Marrow-Gnawer (requires another rat to start), Skirsdag High Priest (requires Morbid and 2 other creatures to start)

Tap outlets: Galecaster Colossus, Hair-Strung Koto, Mothdust Changeling, Patron Wizard, Opposition,

Other cards that could be good: Wake Thrasher,

nice it turn's out Desecration Demon is very effective in the deck folks rather sac then have a 6/6 flyer hit them head on I'm thinking about putting in Skirsdag High Priest in this deck

Yes they sure are, though I think the current 2 Elixir of Immortality are plenty (have always been enough for me so far). Chalice of Life  Flip and the talisman are fun, but I think the Bubbling Cauldron is already, more or less, doing the same thing when using the newts.

Skirsdag High Priest sounds great and the throne might help me pay the activation cost, Im definitly going to try running the priest, thanks!

Elixir of Immortality is a great fun way to put those newts up so you can go fetch them again. Chalice of Life  Flip is good for a kill clock, especially with the cauldron... And it's even better if you run the elixir. Pristine Talisman works well with the witch and cauldron and gives you life. Skirsdag High Priest is pretty cheap, and is amazing with the witch.

Nice. That could be abused by Skullclamp so much. As long as your creature has 2 toughness it'll give you 1 more zombie, plus you'd get to draw 2. Skirsdag High Priest would be nice too, as you could tap the zombies to put a 5/5 demon out, which you could clamp and kill the next turn for even more zombies

Skirsdag High Priest does seem a bit clunky, and I do have Mikaeus, the Lunarch for bringing the religious theme, so I don't have too much problem with cutting them. I used their spot to put in a couple of Utter Ends, per your advice.

I also took out 1 of the Raise the Alarms so that I could fit in a Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. I think the emblem could be really nice, and the extra tokens are always a benefit. As far as flavor, I'm still thinking on it, but I'm possibly gonna portray him and his vampires as some sort of Elite Guard for the High Priestess. I'll figure out some way to make the whole vampire thing work once I have the deck finalized.

The other suggestions weren't bad, just not quite where I want to go with the deck. How's it looking now though? Getting close to a good list?
