With all of the new cycling cards we got from Amonkhet, I wanted to make a deck build around the mechanic. All in all I have 10 cards that trigger when a card is cycled (or discarded, as you must do to cycle). The most important cards of this type is; Astral Slide, Drake Haven, Faith of the Devoted, and Archfiend of Ifnir. The first three of these can each be tutored with my commander Zur the Enchanter. Then all I've got to do is cycle my cards at the right time and have some fun while looting new cards. There are 24 cyclable cards in the deck (I might need some additional) to activate them.

I dont have some of the good cycling cards like Decree of Justice and Decree of Silence because they are too expensive to cycle. I like cheap cyclers more than these.

If you like it, please leave an upvote, and all suggestions are welcome, thanks.

First off I love that this is a Zur deck that isn't hardcore voltron. As for suggestions there's some older cycling lands that you could use, if you don't mind having land that enters tapped: Barren Moor, Drifting Meadow, Lonely Sandbar, Polluted Mire, Remote Isle, Secluded Steppe.

One of my favorite cards in all of Magic is Jace's Archivist. I think he would be good to have here after you've gotten your enchantments out to trigger multiple discard triggers at a time and get you a fresh hand whenever you might need it. There is also Whispering Madness, which has the same effect but is a little trickier to trigger when you need.

Oh and if group discard is something you like, you should also include Liliana's Caress since it can win games and it's easily tutorable with your commander.

This is a thing i also want to do with the new cards and your idea, to tutor and than cycle, seems pretty sweet.

Maybe Landcycling is something for you : Twisted Abomination, Krosan Tusker, Wirewood Guardian, Shoreline Ranger

Just wanted to say I absolutely Love this Idea! I play the typical Voltron Zur so its extremely cool to see a different take rather than Doomsday and Voltron and such! So +1 for a great deck!
