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 looks like a good card, but very mana intensive to make a big impact. Vona's Hunger is pretty great and instant speed, and you almost always get up to ascend in commander, especially if you are making treasures and things. Or Arterial Flow if you want to hit the discards specifically.

I'd think Death Cloud would either synergize with discard strategy or land destruction, or a very ramp heavy deck. Otherwise, I'd pick what part of it you want, creatures or lands or discard, and find a lower to the ground card to go for that.

plakjekaas, I do not have Tergrid in any of my decks, so I definitely should not keep Death Cloud in them, either.

I have replaced Darigaaz, the Igniter, Dread, and Death Cloud with Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Ziatora, the Incinerator, and Fraying Omnipotence, because the newer cards are vastly superior to the older cards, and that did, unfortunately, increase the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.92 to 3.95, but those numbers are deceptive, since I would have needed to spend at least 2 mana on the in Death Cloud's mana cost to receive good value from it.

I have replaced Death Cloud with Fraying Omnipotence, because the newer card does affect lands, which, unfortunately, increased this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.77 to 3.81, but those numbers are actually deceptive, since Death Cloud has a variable mana cost, and I would need to spend at least 2 mana on to receive good value from it.

DemonDragonJ on Diabolical Machinations

I have replaced Death Cloud with Dark Intimations, because the newer card does not hurt me, which did, unfortunately, increase this deck's average converted mana cost from 4.37 to 4.40, but those numbers are actually deceptive, since Death Cloud has a variable mana cost, and I would need to spend at least 2 mana on to receive good value from it. Also, that replacement improved the color balance of this deck, since black is by far the most prominent color among casting costs in it.

wallisface, at the time that I built those decks, I was nowhere near as experienced of a deckbuilder as I am, now, and I thought that that card was so awesome, but, now, I am seeing that that card is good only if a deck is specifically built to use it properly, so I definitely shall replace it with another card.

DarkKiridon, I completely forgot about that card, so I thank you, very much, and I most certainly shall put it into my decks in place of Death Cloud; thank you, very much.

I have Death Cloud in several of my EDH decks, but I am reconsidering that decision, since that card hurts its caster, and I am not certain that those decks have sufficient resources to endure that card, so I may replace it with similar cards.

What does everyone else say about this? Is Death Cloud worth its high price, or is it simply too risky for its caster?
