What's your thoughts on the exert mecanic from HOU/AKH bloc?
Whouldn't be Nice create a bunch of tokens from Steward of Solidarity or even Pride Sovereign? And what about some benefits from atacking with Ahn-Crop Champion or swing a 4/4 Life link on turn 3 with Glory-Bound Initiate?

If I have Steward of Solidarity (or Thraben Doomsayer) out while I have Oketra's Monument in play.. Can I use their abilities to create tokens and also create a second token because of Otekra's "If creature is cast, then create 1/1 token" ability?
I know that the term "cast" is used here, but changes to the term cast/put into play were made in m10. Any official word?

Well, for me Obzedat reanimator is the true esper midrange.

Hi! Cool deck!
You could try adding a neat combo I've been working on in Esper colors that I think will work here too.
Intruder Alarm + Thraben Doomsayer or Steward of Solidarity or Presence of Gond on any creature. Enabled by Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard or a million other creature tutors from green. Just a fun idea you could try that seems to go with the commander really well.

So many combos! How to you keep them all straight? haha
Perhaps add a wish-board of situation cards for your Mastermind's Acquisition.

Oh, and Steward of Solidarity is also missing her AKH and HOU warrior token.

The deck in question is IntruZur Alarm | Zur EDH.
Zur the Enchanter helps a ton in the tutor department, but he can't grab everything.
The tutors I have so far are: Diabolic Tutor, Razaketh's Rite, Recruiter of the Guard, Open the Armory, Demonic Collusion, Enlightened Tutor. Please note that I'm only running the handful of $10 tutors because I already had them.
Now, this seems like a decent tutor package to me. But I wanted to know if there are any other budget tutors that might be slightly better. Also I suppose a good question would be: How many tutors should I run? Is 6 enough? Too many? Hopefully looking at the decklist and my beginnings of a primer will help you determine that.
Additionally, I've come across the Transmute ability and wanted to know what you all thought of it. Sub-optimal of course, but budget. Clutch of the Undercity, Dimir House Guard, Dimir Infiltrator, Dimir Machinations, Drift of Phantasms, Muddle the Mixture, Perplex, and Shred Memory all get one or two of my pieces, and have the added flexibility of being normal spells. Are any of these worth running over, say, Demonic Collusion or Razaketh's Rite?
Would love to hear any thoughts/opinions! Thanks in advance!

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words, advice, and upvote! I'm glad you like what I have so far for the description. I always get those up before asking for help on decks because if there's no description it's near impossible to help. Anyway, I wanted to make a Intruder Alarm combo deck and a Zur deck, so putting them together seem perfect! I wanted a really unique deck since my last deck was heavily based on someone else's.
I see your point about streamlining the combos. I've been worrying I was going a little too far in some places(especially with #2) and I agree with your assesment.
Yeah those two creatures, Steward of Solidarity, and Necrotic Ooze(with them in the 'yard) is the main game plan. All others are secondary and may be cut. I know the Steward isn't as good and is near useless alone but I needed some consistency without having to cash out for Demonic Tutor haha
Sun Titan is great. He hits half my deck :)
Standstill seems okay. It looks kinda easy to play around and doesn't help me if my opponent's board presence is greater. Still, I'll consider it.
Yeah, the lack of haste in the colors is killer. Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves and their tutors, and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all I have atm. The pillowfort strategy how I live the extra turn to win and I'm glad you noticed and appreciated that!
Yeah, honestly... someone telling me I'm overcommiting on #2 is exactly what I needed. You're right haha
I'll probably end up shuffling this part around a bit. I like the schoolmaster and I like how he can also combo with Sunstrike Legionnaire. I'll leave them, Hermetic Study, and Psionic Gift, then probably toss the rest.
Vedalken AEthermage is good. I'll pick one up!
Gray Merchant of Asphodel will probably be cut but Hell's Caretaker has a lot of synergy with my recursion package of Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Sun Titan, Fiend Hunter, and Auramancer. He's just generally very good and near infinite with Alarm out. I'll ditch the combo but I think he can slide into another category.
While all that's going on.
I like Trinket Mage because he's a cheap tutor, but I don't have many other targets for him.
Martyr's Cause is one I have actually! I haven't tested it out yet but we'll see!
After streamlining Combo #1 and Combo #2 here's what they could look like:
Thanks for laying everything out for my like that! Extremely helpful!
I like that way of looking at it. Pillowfort first, combo second. Thanks for that advice!
Again, thanks for laying all the suggestions out like this! It's especially helpful when you've already talked about the deck a ton and now you're giving the suggestions to go off of what you've already said. I'm finding this extremely helpful and will try to do it like this when I help people!
Ethereal Armor is an easy addition. I already have one so I'll throw it in there!
Once again, loving the summarized lists. It's nice to see what the deck could look like in this way. You are good at what you do friend. You deserve that top helper rank.
I'm glad you recognize some creativity and uniqueness in the deck. I'll gladly take all of your advise into consideration.
I'm going to be updating the deck soon, perhaps this weekend. I'd love it if you'd look at it again once I do... though I know you've definitely spent a lot of time on it haha! Let me know if it'd be okay to tag you or something :)
My sincerest thanks!
