Enchantment — Aura
Enchant creature with another Aura attached to it
Enchanted creature gets +3/+3 and has first strike, vigilance and lifelink. (Whenever it deals damage, its controller gains that much life.)

If you are going for a Voltron style of Zur there are a few auras that are often seen in those sorts of lists:
- Diplomatic Immunity protects Zur and itself from targeted removal. Zur's ability can put more auras on himself even if he has Shroud because auras that are put into play by a spell or ability don't target.
- Shielded by Faith is better than Gift of Immortality because you don't want Zur to actually die and lose his auras.
- Steel of the Godhead
- Daybreak Coronet
Darksteel Mutation and Oubliette complement Imprisoned in the Moon as ways that neutralize commanders. They make it difficult for your opponents to immediately get their commanders back to recast if they don't have enchantment removal. Darksteel Mutation is much better than Kasmina's Transmutation because the indestructible that the Mutation gives means that the enchanted commander will live through a board wipe and not go back to its owner's command zone. Oubliette could replace Pendrell Flux.
There's a bit of a call to make between Flaming Fist and Battle Mastery. Flaming Fist won't trigger the turn Zur puts it into play because Zur will have already been declared as attacking at that point. However, Flaming Fist does stick around if Zur happens to die since it's not an aura. Battle Mastery will let Zur hit with double strike the turn it enters but dies with Zur. It's a call to make depending on how aggressive you want to be. Duelist's Heritage is also generally better than Flaming Fist but not if Zur has shroud from a card like Diplomatic Immunity, so that depends on what auras you choose to run in the end.
If you aren't running Stony Silence as a silver bullet to shut down opponents' artifacts then it could be worth considering Nettlecyst as another creature/pump effect in the deck, even if Zur can't tutor it up. It could potentially replace Gray Merchant of Asphodel since the current list doesn't look that geared to reliably get a big hit off the Merchant's ability.
One of Zur's biggest strengths though is that he can tutor up Necropotence, so that's a card you should aim to add as soon as you can get your hands on one.
Rest in Peace is a strong card for messing with decks that utilize the graveyard.
Back to Basics can punish decks with greedy mana bases.

Tonight I placed 3rd out of 10 players at FNM..... I replaced Spell Pierce with Force of Negation in the sideboard (It never came up). I have been attending my LGS for the passed few weeks and have been placing last or tied for last with some of my beloved homebrews; but tonight i wanted to take the gloves off and bring my "more competitive" deck.
Lost Game 1 Vs Ponza: (0-2)
This was a nightmare... game one and early Karn, the Great Creator came down and I scooped looking to change me wincon to Felidar Guardian.... game 2 I kept a 2 lander (A fetchland and a shockland not quite realizing/understanding i was facing Ponza)... Utopia Sprawl shenanigans into an early Blood Moon and I conceded rather than giving him the satisfaction of watching me squirm lol..... yikes... I was feeling really bad after this one.
Won Game 2 Vs Bogles (2-0)
Basically for both games i was just able to combo off before the Gladecover Scout was able to do me in... I was lucky and opened both Rip Aparts for game 2 which made Daybreak Coronet into a brick and it was G.G.s
Won Game 3 Vs Goblins (2-0)
I recognized this player and as soon as i saw the Mountain and the first Goblin I knew what I was up against and was holding onto my Lightning Bolts for the combo enabling goblins.... I drew swiftly into my own Mill combo winning game one and opted for some trickery for game 2 expecting a lot more artifact hate/removal in a mostly Goblin deck; so i took out my sorcery speed removal and put in additional Felidar Guardians. They made for life saving blockers and on the follow up Saheeli Rai was able to make all of the Cats for the win.
So tonight I had what I consider to be great success and am feeling like a winner and thought id share! I did not face the Crashing Footfalls/Living End players this evening and affinity was nowhere to be found tonight...Those decks and Ponza seem to be the decks to beat at this LGS.

Zobi on RaH's Bogle
1 year ago
Hi Rahrune, I am actually building this deck! I didn't already ordered all the cards I need but here is how I made it;
I have a bunch of hexproof creatures, like Slippery Bogle, on which I try to put as much auras as I can. I have cards like Kor Spiritdancer and Season of Growth to draw a lot of cards and refill my hand. I added 4 Path to Exile to my sideboard, just in case other players have too big creatures like Lord of Extinction.
For the auras, I am relying on these;
Rancor to trample over my opponent's creatures
Sixth Sense to draw more cards
Ethereal Armor to make my creatures bigger
Daybreak Coronet to pump and give lifelink to my creatures
I understand your choice on Sigarda, Host of Herons to prevent your creatures to be sacrificed but I prefer being more aggressive. I don't know if you are really focused on auras but maybe you should try voltron strategy. If you have any tips for me I will appreciate it.
I hope this will help you Rahrune!

As you're playing on a budget, I'd recommend building the deck in 2 or 3 main colors (including green) while using specific ramp & lands like the 'vivid' cycle to hit all five colors for your commander.
You seem to be wanting to play an aura voltron deck, did I get that right? If so, I'd recommend looking at selesnya enchantress decks for a solid basis for card draw & some value enchantments. Many also got a lot cheaper since modern horizons 2! Those won't interrupt with your plan for The Prismatic Bridge and help count towards powerful enchantments like Ethereal Armor.
With your 'slower' gameplan (I don't know how your playgroup is, but this deck seems to want to play the prismatic bridge before it's able to become a threat) it might be valuable to use cards like Ghostly Prison to help protect you.
I understand you're passionate about using Evershrike as your 'actual commander', but with your current decklist The Prismatic Bridge will only do one thing, once. That seems a little tough. In addition to 'always having protection for it in hand for exile' as you mentioned, you'd also need protection from edict effects like Plaguecrafter. Because of this, I'd strongly recommend running not just one, but a few creatures that all support the aura voltron strategy as strong as evershrike does. A few suggestions for those, with reasoning:
Uril, the Miststalker has hexproof and gets bigger fast, helping speed up the voltron aura strategy
Sigarda, Host of Herons has hexproof and completely protects you from edict effects.
Bruna, Light of Alabaster is in itself an amazing recursion engine for all auras that could end up in your graveyard.
Of these, I'd definitely recommend Sigarda and Light-paws. With a selesnya manabase, those two and Evershrike can easily be cast if they ever end up in your hand, and really support the aura voltron strategy, while still making sure you have Evershrike in at most three turns after resolving The Prismatic Bridge.
Other cards that would help you survive, give time for you to deploy your game plan and help control the board would be boardwipes. There are several that allow you to save 1 creature from it, and even if you destroy all creatures your Evershrike can be easily returned to the battlefield.
I also see you have a lot of low mana value auras. Those are nice and cost efficient, but I don't think they fit very well with a deck that has at least WUBRG mana available before it has it's first aura target on the board. I'd advise to lean into the more 'effective' cards, that either allow you to draw (Unquestioned Authority, Keen Sense, Snake Umbra) or provide significant benefits (Bear Umbra, Daybreak Coronet).
I understand that some of these suggestions may be a bit high in the budget range, but you could ask your playgroup if they're fine with you proxying a few cards.

Cool concept! It's clear you're telling a story with your deck and I think you've done really well in representing it through your card choices. I'm not to familiar with the Power Rangers myself, so I'll give some advice but I'll also expect you to only listen to what makes sense to you! ;)
Your plan seems to be to get Siona on the table and start playing big auras to suit up several creatures and make them scary threats - fitting the theme you're going for. That's gonna be pretty hard and costly in many games since you will need to spend a lot of mana to play these auras and won't have much resources (mana, cards, protective spells) to keep your rangers alive, while those rangers dying to a kill spell will cost you several cards if you've played the auras on them. I'd look on a few options to give your rangers more chances to shine.
- Cheaper auras that you can play earlier. They will not have as much of an impact, but they will give you everything you need most of the time and will do so many turns earlier. (Angelic Gift, Alpha Authority, Daybreak Coronet, Gryff's Boon, Bonds of Faith etc.)
- Auras that don't lose you resources. By drawing a card on entering the battlefield, letting your creature draw cards or returning from the graveyard you can keep your momentum goingeven if a ranger bites it (this also makes it less attractive to kill them in the first place). (Rune of Might, Rancor, Conviction, Keen Sense etc.)
- Introducing more interaction, mainly in the form of protection. (Veil of Summer, Heroic Intervention, Rootborn Defenses etc.)
Perhaps losing the bigger spells would feel like the deck loses its identity - and then they should stay in. But if it feels like they arrive too late or get stuck in your hand, then maybe the card in your hand should be some other card that does more for you when you need it? Try things out and see what sticks, perhaps something I said has caught your eye! :D
