Solitary Confinement would be an excellent addition alongside your pretty little Necropotence and Greater Auramancy

For the forced combat theme you could go with Siren's Call

If you are going for turtling, you could look at Statecraft or Peacekeeper

If you have enough draw power, maybe Solitary Confinement or Island Sanctuary? Super well-protected but you have to skip your draw step and discard cards. Might be able to buy you a couple turns. Could combine it with Pitchstone Wall to keep that up longer.

Have you considered Darksteel Reactor for another "you win" option?

Some of your "you win" cards use counters. You could add some proliferate cards like Clockspinning or Karn's Bastion.

Look up a legacy enchantress deck. The main thrust is to have Solitary Confinement out with Argothian Enchantress style effects and just play enchantments to draw cards and upkeep the Confinement.

Zur has 2 other ways to not get killed.

Energy Field + Rest in Peace

Solitary Confinement + any enchantment that draws

So those would be great adds. You also have Pariah + Shielded by Faith. Zur is good at assembling any of these, especiall

I recently came across this deck, and love it! I was wondering if you recon there is space for the new Fiery Emancipation (although might be a little heavy), and Smothering Tithe (perhaps instead of Land Tax?). Also, how would you deal with things like Solitary Confinement in decks that are counters heavy (e.g. Zur's prison) or anything preventing the opponent to die/lose the game?

Yarok You could copy it card for card if you wanted to, it's a very fun deck to play! If you are going for a more budget version, I can recommend a more Zur-focused version with cards like Solitary Confinement and Empyrial Armor, both of which are amazing with Necropotence. Also, there's a new combo coming out with Solemnity + Nine Lives that looks cool.

I have decided to remove Primordial Hydra from the deck. I have replaced this card with Privileged Position.

The are a few reasons why I removed Primordial Hydra the first being that far too often I would pull it off of the top of my library when activating Golos, Tireless Pilgrim which means I cast him for 0 on "X".

The second reason I removed Primordial Hydra is because it cannot interact with cards like Debtors' Knell and Reya Dawnbringer once again due to the "X" in it's cost.

Lastly, I feel like the deck does not interact with Primordial Hydra as well as other decks that abuse "X" costs do. It felt like I was trying to keep the hydra in the deck to stay on upkeep theme.

Now that I have Privileged Position in the deck, I can now better protect cards like Solitary Confinement, Form of the Dragon, and Paradox Haze which are all very big targets for removal for my opponents.

idk what your thoughts on listing prevention are but Crawlspace, Ensnaring Bridge, Solitary Confinement all see pretty heavy play in their niche.

I'll probably update as I come up with more of my favorites.
