Really like your deck. I am also aiming to build an unblockable tribal deck but going to partner Ukkima, Stalking Shadow and Cazur, Ruthless Stalker Flip at the helm so I can add green for the ramp. You could look at adding in Phyresis and Grafted Exoskeleton to boost the infect which will make the unblockable hits that much more painful. Ukkima would be a natural addition to the deck too and I would also consider adding Etrata, the Silencer and the new land Access Tunnel to help the wee guys who can be blocked get through

Thank you for the very positive comment and suggestion. I had at the beginning considered Spectra Ward , however it being CMC 5 and that it locks me out of being able to add any further auras to the CMDR has me choosing to pass on the card. I am looking at other options for protecting my CMDR.
Thank you for the positive comments and suggestions. Sigarda's Aid I had at the start but wasn't getting the value from it's flash and now that I'm looking at removing Phyresis it would offer even less.
Eldrazi Conscription is just way to high CMC for this particular build. The focus is 3 CMC auras with 1 colour pip and 2 or fewer colourless mana. If Killian didn't have the 2 colourless mana reduction ability I'd have Eldrazi Conscription in the deck for sure.
Thank you for your comments and suggestions. Angelic Gift is nice but I didn't want to use up card slots for a single ability like flying for a single card draw. I'm working to maximize my gains and opted for Asha's Favor for 3 abilities I wanted. There are some auras I'm working to slot in that will draw me a card on cast.
A couple of your suggestions have me considering them. I'm still tinkering and tweaking the deck so perhaps they will find their way in. Wretched Confluence with a CMC of 5 is going outside of my current build parameters. I really do not want to exceed a CMC of 4. I'm looking at a more of a speedy Voltron build.

One more suggestion: Eldrazi Conscription is much more viable as a 6 drop with our commander out, and can also become a one hit kill with Phyresis . I disagree with the Spectra Ward suggestion, as it prevents us from dropping more auras onto the enchanted creature.

Nice Killian Deck! I’ve been working on a similar build, Killing Killian, and I think I’ve stumbled onto a few good strategies. I’d recommend Sigarda's Aid to drop your auras at instant speed. When your opponents see Phyresis they’re going to make sure they can block or remove the commander ASAP, but if you wait to drop it before the damage step you can eliminate an opponent before they know it’s coming. I like the idea of sneaky infect wins, so I’ve also included Snake Cult Initiation and Inkmoth Nexus . Nexus will lose its auras at the end of turn, but if you can buff it at instant speed you’ll potentially be able to take someone out. I’m dubious weather Killian can win through regular commander damage, as we need to buff him +19, so I’m really leaning on infect. I’m working on a primer as well, and I’ll be making updates once I have more gameplay data... I’ll probably check back in on your page to see what you’ve come up with as well. Feel free to check out my list and throw some suggestions out as well! Good luck with your Kill Box!

I would cut Howling Mine , Font of Mythos , Kami of the Crescent Moon , and any cards like that I missed (I do not include Teferi's Puzzle Box on that list since it doesn’t provide your opponents card advantage). One of Nekusar’s big problems is that you are providing your opponents extra cards they can use to stop your victory. These types of cards are not fast enough - they provide only incremental damage when you want to be hitting for huge damage with wheel effects.
Here are some other cards to consider:
Curiosity combos with Niv-Mizzet to quickly close out games. Helm of the Ghastlord also combos with Niv. Placed on Nekusar when a wheel effect is used, it locks all your opponents out of playing anything other than instants, since they’ll discard their hand to the wheel and then be forced to discard anything they drew.
On that note, Cyclonic Rift itself is an amazing card you should include.
Consecrated Sphinx is a whole lot of value here.

Tom_Shackles this is a cool take on Zur - love the stax/pillow fort theme! Have you considered adding All That Glitters or Phyresis to your voltron package? Combining those with cards in your list like Diplomatic Immunity and Daybreak Coronet (and the 31 other enchantments/artifacts) would threaten a one-shot infect kill pretty quickly.
Feel free to disregard, just wanted to show support for a fellow Zur fan. Got my list here if you're interested.
