Cards that benefit from Solemnity

I am working on a Zur the Enchanter deck which is centered around Solemnity. I don’t want it to be a stax deck so I am looking for abilities that benefit from not gaining counters. So far I have come across cumulative upkeep, vanishing, undying, and persist.

You could run Phyrexian Unlife.

Here's a good resource,

Shows all of the possible combos. Glancing through, Nine Lives would also slot well into zur. Outside lockout combos/infinite a good card is Mystic Remora and/or Dystopia. Just be careful with your own white permanents and dystopia.

I'm assuming the vanishing cards you've found to use are Out of Time, Chronozoa, and Lost Auramancers?

Persist/Undying creatures definitely come to mind. Something like Flayer of the Hatebound (I know, not in your colors but it's what immediately comes to mind) will go infinite with a free sac outlet.

Run Phyrexian Unlife like RiotRunner789 said, and pair it with Axis of Mortality as an unexpected wincon.
