You can also fetch Edge of the Divinity, slap it on him for PAIN.

Unfortunately, he cannot fetch Helm of the Ghastlord.

I sat down against an opponent for an EDH game, with my fairly casual Maelstrom Wanderer deck. Does well casually, fails against competitive decks.

My opponent gets out his deck. His commander - Zur.

I immediately know that unless I draw/mulligan into something like Beast Within or Hinder, I'm going to lose in short order. This made me think - I'm pretty sure that most players get this kind of feeling when they come up against Zur with a deck that isn't very high tier.

Nope. You get that feeling regardless of what deck you're using. Too many counterspells to feel comfortable - ever. I hate this card as an EDH general because, after it's cast, it's basically 3 turns of permission and then you are locked down and may as well scoop (unless you want the brutal 5 more turns where this old dude pokes you to death).

It's extremely unfun, even for a more competitive match. Basically, if you stop Zur, you have a really high chance of winning. If he lands and you don't kill him before he untaps, you may as well quit.

If you play this as your general in EDH; all of your friends hate you and say dirty things about you behind your back.

What did you say? Necropotence is restricted to one? Ok, no problem.

Totem armor auras (Hyena Umbra, Eland Umbra, Crab Umbra, Eel Umbra) just made this guy super cheater in EDH.

He reminds me of Tim, the Enchanter from Monty Python's The Holy Grail.

This artwork greatly confused me upon first sight. I thought his legs were broken off at the knees and floating around him, and his head was exploding.
