Legendary Creature — Human Wizard


Whenever Zur the Enchanter attacks, you may search your library for an enchantment card with converted mana cost/mana value 3 or less, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

DreadKhan on Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

Have you thought about adding Ancestral Mask and All That Glitters, possibly Ethereal Armor, to allow voltron off of one card and what your deck is already trying to do? Zur the Enchanter can be found via Sisay and can find these pieces. Zur can also find Freed from the Real or Pemmin's Aura to make infinite mana off of Sanctum Weaver, which I feel is a card you might look at even if you don't bother with Zur. Zur in general is good with Shrines or Backgrounds, I feel like with both he's a great fit.

Really love this deck!

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a reference link. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on with your question: Zur the Enchanter, Oubliette

For cards like Oubliette, no, this won't work the way you want it to. You're right that Zur's ability has a way to get around hexproof and shroud, but that's just for Auras, specifically. An Aura spell has a target when it's cast, but Zur skips the spell casting part and just puts it directly onto the battlefield (the Aura doesn't continue to target the object it's attached to). However, Oubliette (or Banishing Light, etc.) doesn't work that way. When it enters the battlefield it has a triggered ability (starts with "when/whenever/at") that targets something. Hexproof/shroud will stop that.

"Unplayable chaff Brainstone"

Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Sharuum the Hegemon, Zur the Enchanter, mid-power affinity decks... it's not going to be winning any tournaments anytime soon but it is certainly not unplayable.

To be fair, EDH is also a weird and out-of-place change to Magic, and all it did was accidentally make Zur the Enchanter slightly too good. It's not inconceivable that minor alterations to the Magic ruleset could vastly improve gameplay

If that's the budget, why Zur? There's so little synergy with Zur the Enchanter, that you could just cut him and use a stronger commander, one that synergizes with the artifacts, for example.

Reminds me of my old Commander deck, which I revived: a Child of the Gods

Do you still play/update this deck?

I would highly suggest these options, which have great enchantment synergy:

dragonstryke58 on Deflecting Swat against Zur the …

Unfortunately, you won't be able to use Deflecting Swat on the ability of Zur the Enchanter as the ability does not have any targets.

Zur the Enchanter simply allows its controller (not target player) to search their library for an enchantment card (not a target enchantment card) and put it to the battlefield. Nowhere does it explicitly say target which is what Deflecting Swat requires.

Also, since the enchantment enters the battlefield directly, it is not cast as a spell and does not target either. It is simply attached to a permanent it could enchant. This is one of the ways to bypass shroud as well.

Let's say that Zur the Enchanter attacks an opponent, triggering his ability to search for an enchantment. Zur's controller grabs an enchantment aura such as Hyena Umbra . Would you be able to Deflecting Swat the enchantment aura, choosing a new creature to enchant?

Or, if you chose to deflecting swat Zur's ability, would you be able to target yourself, and then search for an enchantment of your own?
