Whoomp! Zur It Is - Zur $40 Budget Enchantments

Commander / EDH Enchantment Voltron WUB (Esper)



By request from Karma-, here is my take on Zur the Enchanter. Karma- asked for a non-prison voltron version of Zur and I think this delivers.

In my ongoing endeavor to bring frugality to Commander, each card in this deck is under $2 and the whole deck is under $40 (not including the commander). If you like what you see, UPVOTE! or you can check out all my other $40 budget decks. If you see some areas of improvement, let me know what you'd change. Just make sure all suggested cards are under $2.

1) Get Zur the Enchanter out as quickly as possible

2) Start outfitting him with protection first, as well as unblockable if the board state necessitates it, and then start pumping him up

3) Arm yourself with counters and removal as necessary to insure the victory

1) Commander damage

2) Angels from Sigil of the Empty Throne

While making Zur a lockdown deck is the best way to spend your upgrade dollars, in the spirit of the deck request, these upgrades are voltron-related. Feel free to suggest your favorite upgrade cards to add:
