This deck was built to use Zacama, Primal Calamity as a hidden Commander and bust Blood Sun. Over time it has evolved into a sort of secret partners Commander deck with Zacama, Primal Calamity and Zur the Enchanter. Zur the Enchanter helps put out Blood Sun and bunch of other utility enchantments and Zacama, Primal Calamity is the big finisher.

In order to make sure this happens, there are a lot of tutor or tutor effects (ETB tutors and Transmute). The idea is to get out Blood Sun early to make the bounce lands and shock lands come into play untapped (bounce) with no drawbacks (shock). To add extra oomph to this, I have added Mana Reflection. Now your Bounce Lands tap for 4 mana each.

Next get out Zacama, Primal Calamity and start abusing him. To this end, I have included a few return to hand effects such as Cloudstone Curio, Equilibrium, Temporal Adept, Temur Sabertooth, and Vedalken Mastermind.

With all this mana, you now abuse Zacama, Primal Calamity's activated abilities, or use all that mana to power a big X-spell such as Villainous Wealth or Torment of Hailfire.

There is a secondary win condition of bouncing Zacama, Primal Calamity and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger to exile everyone's stuff.

I have had a chance to play this a few times and tweak the deck. Added Shielded by Faith to better protect Zur the Enchanter. Also added Seasons Past for a little more recursion.

Let me know what you think.
