scottbaker91 on Zur the Enchanter Stax

2 months ago

Some of my favorite Zur Combos are: Teferi, Hero of Dominaria + Stasis // Solitary Confinement + Necropotence // Rest in Peace + Energy Field // Stasis + Azor's Elocutors // Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact // Winter Orb + Mind Over Matter

Sunder, Armageddon, Death Cloud will send your opponents back to the stone age while you fish out more enchants and punch them to death with Zur

Mana Breach, Mana Vortex, Oppression, Overburden are must have stax cards for Zur. The enchantments / creatures that keep your opponents from drawing or casting more than 1 spell per turn are really solid for stax ex: Arcane Laboratory, Spirit of the Labyrinth. Notion Thief + wheels will leave your opponent with 0 cards

Spellskite, Vanishing, Diplomatic Immunity, Steel of the Godhead, Mind Over Matter are all S tier for Zur

Approach of the Second Sun for another easy win con

Have fun crushing your opponents soul

It's a great fit for Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, but most people would look the same at this as Armageddon. It resets the board for almost every resource available to play the game further, so if you have no creatures, no lands and no hand remaining and so does nobody else, the game is just slow to continue and even slower to end. If you aren't trying to break that symmetry, you're just wasting the time of all players involved, which most players will not thank you for.

A (kind of) quick explanation:

Commander tends to encourage and support large creatures, fast combos, and accumulating resources (life totals, board presence, cards in hand, mana) to survive and defeat three opponents at once. 's strengths are rapid massed attacks and technical combat, defensive structure, and restricting opponents' options. Its long-term weaknesses include smaller than average creatures and reduced ability to generate resources quickly. This made it very poorly suited for EDH (now know as Commander). It was seen as a fairly viable support color for slower control decks, but unable to support a deck on its own and generally "unfun," with effects like Rule of Law, Armageddon, and Ghostly Prison only serving to stall and draw out the game. could set up a lock, but not provide many threats of its own to actually end a match. This meant that -centric decks were slow themselves and made everybody else slower, shutting down a match without providing closure.

Commander's increasing popularity and the strong advantages that , , and had over and in that format meant that these colors were often seen as weak and underpowered, even when presenting powerful options in Standard, Modern, and other formats more suited to their strengths. WotC responded by experimenting with ways to increase the viability of and in Commander without making them too strong in other formats.

I think they've done a reasonably good job overall, although the Legacy initiative decks probably represent a misstep, along with Smothering Tithe. Standard, Modern, and Pioneer have not seen an influx of cards drawing multiple cards each turn, while -centric decks are increasingly viable in Commander, although still need support at the highest tiers. Commander has always been a casual, highly variable format above all, where personal expression is encouraged as much as any mechanical balance. Still, the process is still very much in its experimental phases, and trial and error is the most cost- and production-efficient method of expanding 's (and every other color's) area of expertise.

Imagine if the fan-made format catered to 's and 's strengths. In this hypothetical, instead of trying to use all their old weird cards, the creators simply wanted to play as many different games as possible. Call it Rapidfire format. Life points start at 15, and the decks are singleton 45-card piles that use the colors of their commanders. Here, and are powerful, while and would need a lot of help--mill might be acceptable, but that's it. This little thought experiment is just trying to show that the apparent weakness of is simply residue of a single popular format that reduces its strengths and amplify its shortcomings.

This post was a lot shorter and less rambly when I started writing, I swear.

I think some players are misled by the belief that the only true form of card advantage are by direct card drawing. Cards like Wrath of God, Balance, Armageddon, and Land Tax can create card advantage if rightfully used or abused. And they all exist almost right from the beginning of the game. You just have to widen your perspective that card advantage comes in different forms, not just card drawing.

To limit power, increase difficult decisions, and impose an additional cost. It opens them up to sorcery speed removal on opponents' turns and makes you commit your resources. It allows your opponents to act upon both the land and the retransformed creature before you get a chance to fully utilize them. That is the dynamic they wanted, not "Dodge the Wrath of God. Unless it is an Armageddon, then dodge that instead. Also, be able to be the first one who can act at sorcery speed with all resources available."

Cataclysm can work against you based on opponents' picks and though Enter the Infinite is impressive & works with Omniscience, I don't see Thassa's Oracle or Laboratory Maniac, nor do I see Grapeshot. Consider instead Boros Charm + Armageddon which most people will hate & sometimes outright scoop after.

Mana Vault is more of a risk than you might think without untap mechanics (See Derevi, last paragraph). Consider Thought Vessel or even Library of Leng.

Replace Lion's Eye Diamond with Land Tax. The latter also helps offset the pain from Need for Speed, which is a cool find.

Consider Smothering Tithe instead of Mystic Remora: Remora usually only nets a few cards at beginning, and will often slow you down more than it helps. The former performs MUCH more consistently, and will net you more mana to focus on spells and counters.

Concerning your SB: If you want to go maximum lock-stax, I'd recommend Derevi, Empyrial Tactician. Use Winter Orb, Static Orb & Stasis, use Kismet and Loxodon Gatekeeper, maybe even Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines. Use fetches + basic lands, huge ramp, and Back to Basics just to spite opponents. NB: Mana Vault smacks with Derevi.

I think I want to slowly begin leaning more on the Angelic theme but Armageddon might be taking it a bit too far lok
