You may have Estrid's Invocation enter the battlefield as a copy of any enchantment you control, except it gains "At the beginning of your upkeep, you may exile this enchantment. If you do, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control."

Estrid's Invocation Discussion
1 week ago
Dance of Many is a cool card, which can duplicate the best thing out usually, which is nice. The other duplication enchantments, Copy Enchantment and Mirrormade are both useful with All That Glitters , IIRC it's about the fastest Voltron you can generate with Zur. Estrid's Invocation works nicely with Detention Sphere , allowing you to wipe a token type per turn at no cost, handy in some matchups.
Web of Inertia and Rest in Peace is a nice way to be safe from enemy attackers, and to halt anyone else trying to use their graveyard. It has no ongoing cost like Solitary Confinement , and works vs attack triggers (like an enemy Zur or Eldrazi).

Court Of Grace: It works well actually. It's never a dead card and I normally have a flying blocker ready to do the job if needed. At worst, the 1/1 spirit will most likely ends up being a 3-2 or 4-3 due to the high amount of power/toughness enhancer in the deck.
Umezawa's Jitte is always a dangerous threat. I tend to play this deck a lot when it comes to 1vs1 performance and in this perticular case, Umezawa's is a star.
Spellskite: Useful tool I would't trade it for anything.
Rankle, on the other end, is on the watchlist. I would prefer another useful goodstuff enchantement or artifact instead. He is at his bests in multiplayer games tho. Maybe I should give a try to Estrid's evocation? Maybe. I didn't liked Mirrormade very much but this seems more powerful a bit.
And finally, I have played Inkshield 3 times now on spelltable but it ended up being a dead card un 1 game and it didn't showed up in the other twos. It's too early to pronounce myself on that one.
Thanks for the constructive comment there and have a good one. Will definitely check Estrid's Invocation out.

Did you have a chance to test Inkshield yet?
I'd also like to know how the following cards perform in your deck:
- Court of Grace (is it worth the extra pressure you get from your opponents after playing it?)
- Rankle, Master of Pranks
- Umezawa's Jitte
What do you think about Estrid's Invocation in your deck? I don' play it myself since it can be a dead card and i don't have too many great targets but for you it might be a good way to regain the Monarch by targeting Court of Grace (would you get a 4/4 instead of a 1/1 if you stack it correctly?). Also, if you target a commander when you copy Seal Away / Grasp of Fate / Oubliette / Conclave Tribunal it works like repeatable removal since they will most likely choose to put their commanders in the command zone.

I like all all of the suggestions in fact I'll definitely try out Sevinne's Reclamation and Jeskai Ascendancy I was already searching for a "card draw enchantment" so it's between Jeskai Ascendancy , Mystic Remora or Whirlwind of Thought . the last one is great cause it combos with Omniscience but can potentialy deck me unless I donate a Naset to the opponent I guess :D But Jeskai Ascendancy goes better with Sevinne's Reclamation so I lean more towards it.
As for the others:
- Copy Enchantment I've run it and it's really good but decided to replace it for Mirrormade but MAYBE i'd expand max to two cards that copy enchantments - the effect is definitely powerful combined with the other enchatments
- Cast Out very good flash Oblivion Ring now i'm looking for a creak to include it
- Estrid's Invocation good card, have it in my other enchantment focused EDH, but does not really make the cut. The versatility of reentering the battlefield as something else you have does not offset the ability to target your donated oblivion ring if the timing asks for it IMO. Also can't abuse any enter the battlefield effects.
- Thought Vessel good stone but I'm not sure I can slot it in just for the no maximum handsize it brings
Again, thanks for the suggestions, this is just my thought process behind it :D

I am playing a Zedruu deck too. I have to put my altered commander up there, but its extended and not even close to your version.
Did you consider these cards:
- Copy Enchantment
- Estrid's Invocation
- Jeskai Ascendancy
- Thought Vessel
- Cast Out
- Sevinne's Reclamation
+1 from a fellow Zedruu player.

All That Glitters is a really nice voltron card, and it is really great combined with Copy Enchantment or Mirrormade or Estrid's Invocation . Since you'll usually have artifacts on board, Glitters is usually a great finisher for Voltron Zur. These are very competitive in terms of damage output with Battle Mastery , while offering you considerably more versatility.

maybe Estrid's Invocation , i think its an auto include in ranar.

All That Glitters and Mirrormade are good cards to consider, and Glitters works really well with Copy Enchantment effects. It's often bigger than Ethereal Armor, for what that's worth. Estrid's Invocation has a nifty interaction with Detention Sphere , but I don't know if you can get a foil of it, but it can clear the whole board of any one token type per turn if you've got both out, for no additional resources.
Have you thought about Mox Opal ? It's a dead card early, but like the Diamond, it's a bomb with the Myr I'd wager.
Opposition Agent is really good, both in and against Zur, to the point that I've heavily retooled my own Zur deck to deal with it as an eventuality, because a lot of Black decks ought to run it (your meta obviously may vary). I've added several instant speed removal options specifically to deal with it (and am loath to cast them), because it so utterly borks my deck if it's out.
Similarly, but less hostile to Zur is Hullbreacher , which is pretty toxic. I run a wheel win con in Zur, so I can't fault people for using the card (at all), but it also warrants removal, probably instant speed or counter.
Really cool deck! +1
