Hands down best combo here is Contamination and Bitterblossom. Don't worry about all that other garbage. The only reason there is anything else in your deck is so that you have a plan B for when more removal gets pointed at your stuff than you have counters, or when you're facing a mono-black opponent.

And when you do this, make sure to pack your deck with things like Gilded Lotus so that you can still cast your spells. Easy-mode EDH.

I'm currently doing an art edit for this card. I'm changing his name to "Tim, the Enchanter" and changing his art to Tim from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I'm going to give him to a friend for his birthday.

Missed the "CMC 3 or less" the first time I read this guy. Drew up a deck for him and then realized that I couldn't pull big enchantments XD. I was writing Eldrazi Con***ion in the deck list and then went "wait, that can't work" >.<
Still a cool card, though.

Zur is really, really good in EDH. He was the second deck I ever built for that format, back when I knew zilch about what was good. I went through my collection, threw in a ton of random enchantments that cost three or less, and some black kill spells and about 5 counters, and I brought it to my local game store one fateful Saturday.
It just so happens that on that day, there was an EDH tournament. I signed up for the heck of it. I proceeded to roflstomp my first two opponents, even though I was running cards like Arcanum Wings (for the more expensive cards like Auramancer's Guise, of course). I lost to the resident jerk who played a finely tuned Erayo deck, and he won 80 bucks.
Later games showed that I had simply gotten lucky that day, but the power of Zur was fully revealed to me. Tutoring up a solution to a problem every turn is backbreaking for the opponent. Zur is a card advantage machine, and you are a jerk for playing it.

Well, it works nicely with Con***ion and Arcanum Wings. Or as a tutor for combo pieces (like Reality Acid and Vedalken Mastermind, Triskelion and Daily Regimen, or Torture and Grim Poppet). Oh, and it tutors for Declaration of Naught. :)

Using him as a Commander. No surprise there. The big surprise is it's a Merfolk deck. There are alot of badass Merfolk (there's 6 pages of Merfolk related cards on Gatherer). You can pull so many cool combos, using Zur to get to the key enchantments.

Intruder Alarm
Psionic Gift/Hermetic Study
Pemmin's Aura/Freed From the Real
Mark of Asylum/Inviolability
Diplomatic Immunity

Cards like these quickly enable multiple infinite combos (Damage, Damage Prevention, Milling, Card Draw, Token Production) and other just plain mean combos (Reusable Countering, so on) with my Merfolk cards, (like Lullmage Mentor, Stonybrook Schoolmaster, Drowner of Secrets, etc) and a couple other handy cards (like Paradise Mantle)...
