Hmmm, this guy would work great with Innistrad block curses!

And making this into Tim would be cool, however, he doesn't remind me of Tim at all. I mean for starters Tim is obviously a red mage with all the absurd amounts of fire he shoots!

A very mean card to play against in EDH, need card draw? Pull Standstill or Phyrexian Arena need him to survive combat? Try Steel of Godhead. Need generic, dear god that has to be removed immediately removal? Try Oblivion Ring...so many possibilities and a real tough general to play against. Add on top of that that his colours are {W}{U}B} and the fact that he has toughness 4 (which puts him outside of normal bolt range, not really that important in EDH but can still be a factor) and you've got yourself a mean general.

This guy is a monster in both card form and back-story.

Yes he can bring in Auras and hit an opponents Shrouded or Hexproof creature, as Zur's ability does not Target the creature, Diplomatic Immunity does not prevent you from further buffing Zur. one of the only decks that should be able to give you any problems is the Scion of the Ur-Dragon. only if its well built, seeing as you should be ramping this with artifacts and such you should be able to get Zur on the field and be able to swing once before they can cast Scion, choosing nevermore and naming Scion will net you the game.

Ubiquitously needs a Mythic Rare reprint....frankly, preferably Oversized. Not because Wizards should be saying "Hey kiddies, Zur is a fun EDH General! Go beat people up now!" But because people hate Oversized cards, and hopefully if he's Oversized, not too many people will see the need to suddenly overnight change their Commander Strategy to making people cry.

But as with many Broken To Hell From the Vault cards, his power level, his notoriety, and his mystique do qualify him to be honored with the other cards like, say, Tinker or Balance that deserve a brief shoutout as a special unique-process-foil for going above and beyond the call of douchebaggery, to being QAA. (Quite Annoying, Actually.)

An often overlooked card to put on Zur is Sigil of Sleep. Bounce a threat every turn? Yes, please.

Zur the Enchanter is a boss in edh. He is not unbeatable believe me. He is hard to beat but not impossible. A good friend woke me up a couple of nights before this posting and asked to play a game of edh before he went to work to test out kaalia v zur. well we played and to my sleeping stupidity i swing/lay solitary confinement with BB on field no mana in hand and necropotence in hand. dont make those mistakes and zur will win most of your games depending on the level of competitiveness. i always play enchantments as follows with zur..

1. diplomatic immunity
2. necropotence/phyrexian arena (whichever you prefer to play with, necro is way better)
3. solitary confinement
4. nevermore paraselene if you think theyre running white destroy all enchantments type stuff. back to nature if green whatever the color answer with nevermore or if they havent casted their commander at this time that always works too.
5. daybreak coronet or steel of godhead if you dont wana spend 15$ on an enchantment... (see all)

Steel of the Godhead and Detention Sphere make this guy terrifying in Modern.
Instant 5/5
