Bolsheviktory Deckling

I pick things up and put them down competitively. Sometimes those things are magic cards.

Hello Bolsheviktory! I'm looking around tapped/out for Zur players to look at my Zur combo deck, IntruZur Alarm | Zur EDH!

Your Zur deck is dissimilar to mine, but I figured you'd still be able to help out!

Just looking for some general thoughts/opinions! Thanks in advance!

I'd replace the weaker versions of the cards for the stronger version.

So LED -> Blacker lotus, Necropotence -> Necro-impotence, and so on

Hulk typically plays druid as the secondary line, so I think nihil still makes sense. I haven't gotten around to making the changes for that meta, but played a couple games in the meta where the current list works very well.

I will make some swaps when I do some more testing, though. Opt is a good include for sure.

Hey, so I thought a little about the deck. Instead of efficient combos let's stick to the sillier ones, focusing on intruder alarm.

You are in very bad colors for tapping dorks, and the stonybrook/drowner combo is only tutorable by black. I'd suggest more artifact and instant focused combos that still require several pieces to set up, and are pretty cheesy.

So one would be Isochron Scepter + Ensoul Artifact + Some creatures which tap for mana + some pretty spicy spells such as:

To Arms! to draw your deck

Intruder Alarm with token generation, such as

Warping Wail for infinite scions/mana (and some other useful modes)

Raise the Alarm, Reality Shift to deck opponents, Pongify/Rapid Hybridization to replace fatties with 3/3s, etc.

This is all pretty janky, so a cheesy but more efficient method would be some of the above, but with Paradox Engine and artifact mana in place of Ensoul Artifact and tapping dorks.

A very fun combo sometimes used in Cedh is to have an Isochron Scepter imprinted with Dramatic Reversal, then playing a Copy Artifact imprinting a Swan Song, then playing some spell and infinitely countering it with swan song while it's on the stack to generate infinite 2/2 birds. Phyrexian Metamorph is a backup copier.

It looks like you are intentionally avoiding them, but I'd still look into the cheaper artifact and spell tutors to help assemble your combos easier. You are playing a tutor in the command zone, after all.

Regardless of the combos you choose to use, I'd include some cheap interaction and card advantage like the above comment suggests. The land count is also very high, I would cut down to 33 max. You can use some cheaper artifacts. Without mentioning the broken ones, you could stand to add Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Dominance, and Fellwar Stone. The 3cmc ones are typically pretty bad, but you could add Coalition Relic.

Hope that helps, good luck!

Hey Suns_Champion I can try to help, but what exactly are you looking for? What deck power do you want to achieve and what is your current meta? Is the goal more gimmicky combo? Are you opposed to stax pieces/ mass land destruction / winning in the very early game (T2-3)?
