Adding to what plakjekaas mentioned, the following cards also create a lock preventing players from casting spells from their hands:

Possibility Storm + Rule of Law or Archon of Emeria or Drannith Magistrate . The Magistrate is the best option because it only locks down opponents and costs 1 less mana than the other two options.

Don't forget Notion Thief / Hullbreacher / Narset, Parter of Veils in combination with Reforge the Soul / Windfall / Winds of Change and the like. It's a one-time effect, but usually stops all opponents right in their tracks, as much as any lock would.

Not sure if that counts for your criteria, but it's worth a mention.

Also Possibility Storm + Rule of Law to forbid all spells cast from hand.

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .

At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

Yeah, still I tried not to make it too broken. Only three cards get exiled, instead of the whole graveyard which was my original idea. The third ability costs mana as well, where Rule of Law has no activation cost. Finally adding that he has to tap makes it so you can't use the abilities multiple times per turn.

Envoc Koss, Priest of Silence is an Orzhov stax commander I created. It was an idea by combining a few cards like Glasses of Urza , the +1 on Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , and Rule of Law . The result is pretty interesting with the many options of abilities.

DreadKhan I used to have Rule of Law in, but ended cutting it for Arcane Laboratory so it can be pitched to Force of Will more regularly. It can absolutely get in the way of the consultation win, but I play with Ad Nauseam players and it hurts them far more often. I dont know why I never thought of copying Helm of Obedience . Maybe ill put Mirrormade back in.

I dont think I've ever even seen Web of Inertia . Worth considering for sure.

In my playgroup, I have a hard time winning through voltron. I took All That Glitters out, but with more copy enchantment/artifact effects, it would be worth including again

Thank you for your suggestions!

Rule of Law is another 1 spell per turn enchantment, as is Eidolon of Rhetoric , both fetchable, and Archon of Emeria is great but not an enchantment. I run a Rule of Law based Zur deck, but I set it up so my win cons don't require 2 spells in the same turn. Does Consultation play nice with Laboratory for you, it seems like you are at risk of blocking your own win con sometimes.

Speaking of win cons, if you set up Helm of Obedience you might want to fetch a Mirrormade next, so you can kill the remaining 2 players in 1 turn, 1 the first turn you set up, then the remaining two the next turn. The versatile copy effect has lots of niche uses, so it's not a dead card (even if all you do is copy Sol Ring when you fetch it up, it's doing work I'd argue).

Web of Inertia is sometimes a lot better than Energy Field if being attacked period matters, IE vs Najeela or Eldrazi. If you just want the damage prevention I like Solitary Confinement , so I can't be targeted.

All That Glitters is, I find anyways, the best Zur Voltron card you'll find, often providing enough buff to win on it's own in slower match ups, IE if your hate cards do work. Any Copy Enchantment type effects (I run 3) synergize really well with Glitters.

Thanks XinZhao, Archon of Emeria is an excellent suggestion! How did I miss that?? I’ll definitely swap Rule of Law for it as soon as I get a copy. Its flying body and nonbasic land-tapping ability is a great fit for this deck.
