do you like FREE STUFF? (2 CMC avg Aluren combo) is my version of this deck! We have different builds - I focused on more of a toolbox creature build. But I will say that I'm running 1x Fairgrounds Warden for hate pieces and I love it; I'm also really liking Winds of Rebuke and Silence as protection cards. Winds of Rebuke especially has impressed me, for such an unassuming card. Sometimes you just need to get Spirit of the Labyrinth off the table to combo, and with all the top-of-deck tutors (Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor) it has random value as well.
Also, Containment Priest. Soooo good against so many strategies.
Finally, I recommend Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies as a backup combo (into draw-deck with Thrasios and infinitely large Ballista) instead of Aetherflux Reservoir because it doesn't require Aluren to go off and goes off through ETB hate, too.
Glad other people are playing Aluren combo in EDH! It's so fun.

Navigator's Ruin is kind of pointless to run in a control shell. Also, if you're staying mono blue I would just embrace the control and drop Sailor of Means. Like use Spell Swindle if you really have your heart set on ramping in blue lol.
Alternatively I guess Prosperous Pirates could help if you don't hit all your Sailor of Means's. Depths of Desire could tempo your opponent, and Pirate's Prize could draw you into your pieces. All are on curve and help you ramp. If you were feeling real froggy you could try and play Baral, Chief of Compliance. He'd be a lightning rod, but it may draw the hate out so the giant fish doesn't get it later.
I also wouldn't even bother with Opt.. it doesn't dig very far.. Supreme Will would probably be better and it pulls double duty cuz it could be a pretty solid counter spell. Glimmer of Genius is the all time digger still tho. Search for Azcanta Flip I guess would be pretty nice at the lower drops.
How has this deck done at FNM or wherever?

Ok in this kind of deck you need options to slow your opponent and more mill options, I recommend putting in at least 2 Abandoned Sarcophagus to recast your cycling mill spells, with that I would replace Cancel with Countervailing Winds as you would have a fair amount of cards in your graveyard and you can recast it from the sarcophagus. I would put 4 Ipnu Rivulet and 4 Desert of the Mindful to avoid flooding and add extra mill from the rivulet. To add stall to the deck Id add 4 Winds of Rebuke and if you have the money a pair of River's Rebuke if you dont then run the budget alternative Floodwaters which also has cycling. Also consider some Essence Scatters and Censors as some better counter magic.

Hello, and thank you for the kind words!
Nath's pros lie in that his ability can be used as a combo piece with discard (especially Sadistic Hypnotist and Possessed Portal) which supports his staxy game plan, but Gitrog has potential as a staxy deck with Strip Mine recursion and Death Cloud effects paired with land recursion, followed by pure Gitrog beats or something like Helm of Obedience as the wincon. A brew with some combo routes was made a couple months back if you're interested: Frog Stax.
As far as you Zur list is concerned, I honestly have nothing too big to add. Mox Diamond and Mana Vault are both rocks that you should definitely run for their massive tempo gain in the early turns though. Lotus Petal is great too, but not too compulsory in a deck like this. Sensei's Divining Top of course is also a super good add, but I can see if you prefer not running it. For some extra enchantment toolbox synergy, Flash + Academy Rector for Omniscience is always pretty damn good, and Rector is fine in that you can use it to find other chants as well if you feel like it and it can also be reanimated with all the reanimation spells. Speaking of reanimating Rector, I also recommend bounce spells like Cyclonic Rift or Winds of Rebuke to do tons of things whenever you need to (such as bouncing an Animate Dead off of Rector).

I added Winds of Rebuke as another tempo card with a little bit of mill/self-mill attached to it. I suppose if you wanted to go with actual removal for creatures you could go with Lightning Strike, Magma Spray, or Shock. Essence Scatter is probably a good choice as well. I'm playing against more Combo and Control than straight Aggro so I don't need those cards as much, but to each his own when it comes to sideboards.

How budget no more than $200?
If you can I would run a playset of Archive Traps since that is your most efficient mill (everyone fetches turn 1).
I would also suggest you set up a sideboard. Profane Memento seems like a card that should go in the sideboard: it is good for creature heavy matches but not every deck runs tons of creatures. You could also include cards like Mana Leak, Winds of Rebuke, and/or Tormod's Crypt.
