Zur the Enchanter
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
Whenever Zur the Enchanter attacks, you may search your library for an enchantment card with converted mana cost 3 or less and put it onto the battlefield. If you do, shuffle your library.

Just to clear up the text:
Vasarto's Amazing Legendary Ruksack
Legendary Artifict - Equipment
At the beginning of your upkeep, if ~ is equipped, search your library for an artifact or enchantment card and exile it. You may cast cards exiled with ~.
A lot shorter and adheres to more modern conventions of text parsing. Honestly, this is too good - this is a colorless Zur the Enchanter that is less vulnerable, has no restrictions on mana cost and can look up artifacts and enchantments.
I would restrict by adding "Search your library for an artifact or enchantment with converted mana cost equal 1 plus the number of cards exiled with ~."

Realistically I'd partner it with Hermit Druid and go for an obvious OP cEDH deck with Druid in the CZ and 4 colors to abuse it.
Outside of that easy pick, there are a few other ones that would be hilarious, such as Laboratory Maniac and just run the Tainted Pact / Demonic Consultation win or perhaps a Notion Thief in the CZ and using basically a better Leovold deck.
I mean, those three would be oppressive to the point of banning, but just imagine having any of 100 other staple powerful creatures in there, Seedborn Muse would have a million combos, think running Winter Orb and Static Orb or even Stasis while you untap your permanents every player's turn holding up for countermagic even when you tapped out the turn before!
Godo, Bandit Warlord now has all 5 colors and has the instant win in the CZ?
Urza, Lord High Artificer has access to 3 more colors? Fun!
Point is, Atarka isn't close to reasonable in terms of the busted nature of this card.

It was very useful and would love to hear more given the chance. I've got Mindswipe in there already but will get Syncopate in there swapped for something. I agree on the "hard counters" being used as opposed to the "singular" ones too (If I recall correctly I've got some common hard counters I could put in till get better ones). Having gotten back into commander I'll be posting my decks for card swaps/ideas.

I think Zur may be the best option in terms of power. Augustin just sort of slows people down and Narset could end up digging into the spells you need with her abilities.
Zur the Enchanter gives you some benefit of putting out plenty of value enchantments and gives you access to to tutor for the pieces you will want.

I'm curious what Commander do you think would have the easiest (and most consistent) time accomplishing that?
What Sort of build?
I'm torn between Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Zur the Enchanter , and I've contemplated adding red but I'm not sure who to run... Narset, Enlightened Master maybe? I consider red for things like Price of Glory / Defense Grid to help protect me on my turn between between Teferi's Protections. I also like a (s)tax/pillowfort approach.

thom-le Thank you so much for your advice. About the solutions you proposed:
- Doomsday - I agree: this is an interesting solution, and I thought it over before that. I want to make two independent, and preferably 3 strategies, to win with Doomsday within the same deck.
- Ashiok, Dream Render - Yes, this is certainly a powerful card that harms my opponents, but it does not directly benefit me. Especially under the condition that I have nothing to protect him from a simple attack by creatures.
- Talrand, Sky Summoner and Murmuring Mystic - n my opinion, these cards are too heavy and I can not afford to play them in the early game, leaving myself without mana available. And in the late game, they do not correlate with my possible winning combinations.
- Tomebound Lich and Baleful Strix - these are good cards, but not both on the same sheet. I think Baleful Strix is better, since it flies, and Tomebound Lich in any case would remain only as a blocking creature. I’m thinking about adding.

Yeah thanks for reaching out. You're talking about upgrading the brawl deck into a commander one, right? I would definitely go back and look at what Theros did with enchantments. Get a few blue/white/black enchantment creatures for bodies on the field. They also gave us an enchantment for each thing that we normally did with sorceries/instants. Check out Zur the Enchanter decks (and get yourself Zur for your deck too). Ethereal Armor is a must, plus removal like Oblivion Ring , Prison Realm , Detention Sphere , and Conclave Tribunal (there are many options). For card draw, Curiosity , Curious Obsession , and Ior Ruin Expedition if you're on a budget. The Fonts from Theros are also useful here; Font of Fortunes , Font of Return , and some of the Seal enchantments: Seal of Cleansing , Seal of Doom , Seal of Removal . You should rarely need to put an instant or sorcery in your deck since you can get all kinds of synergy with enchantments and the enchantments basically do the same thing. Blightcaster helps turn all of those enchantments also into removal spells. And look forward to all of the enchantment creatures that will be added in the next set, Theros Beyond Death!
