So yeah, he played out a ton of threats with his near infinite mana, got all his creatures killed but forced me and the wrathing player to tap out with Vorinclex, then killed both of us on his next turn. He lost due to being a moron, and took 30 more minutes to do it.

Vampires is the best of the four. Tons of removal, free vampire tokens, and a commander that is pretty good at beating down.

Dragons is Durdle.dec . It doesn't have enough ramp or a reliable enough mana base to really beat down. Cute, but bad.

Don't have the other two. But, looking at deck lists, Wizards has a ton of good cards and UR staples. (Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Mercurial Chemister, Nev Disc, etc.). I imagine it's pretty good and probably right underneath Vampires.

This is what I've ended up with after about a month of playtesting and tuning. I'd say it's very conditional on your meta; some people have gotten pretty salty about quilspike + devoted druid going infinite. Even without that, the triggers can get out of hand fast when you start putting counters on more than a few creatures at a time. If your meta is creature-heavy enough to support her I would definitely recommend. She snowballs harder than almost any deck I've played

the wizards has a bunch of good cards but the deck itself is kinda garbo. inalla's eminence ability is so niche that it doesn't really do much in the precon. the best part of the wizard deck is Kess, Dissident Mage and maybe a few other cards like Shifting Shadow and so on, but they don't fit in the precon at all.

Dragons probably needs like 20 ramp cards, like 10 2-drop ramps and 10 4-drop ramps to consistently get to that 6 mana to actually be able to cast your stuff. and even then you mostly want to cheat your stuff out with stuff like selvala's stampede and lurking predators whenever possible

the vamps seem to be the best out of the box yeah

I was considering an energy subtheme, but I'm afraid it would eat up too many slots. Then again, with Energy, I could use Contagion Engine and Proliferate (which also works with Charge Counters).

I tried Edgar as a hardcore aggressive deck, but it didn't work out so well in my meta. I built him into an aristocrats-style deck that generates value off the tokens and either goes for a purphoros/blood artist win or transitions into an aggressive deck after controlling the board, but I'm having some issues with that. When I played Teysa, she was a 3-drop and most of the good cards she interacts with cost 2 or 3 mana, but the curve for a similar Edgar deck is so much higher that I'm usually not doing anything until I get to 6 or 7 mana.

What can I do to make Edgar aristocrats better?

On the other hand unless you have some sort of life gain it makes your infinites finite. With Wanderwine Turns, for instance, you'll be losing 4 each go, which is the same that the wanderwine will be dealing to one opponent. True, that gives you 9 turns (from a fresh start) to find a win or out. Bloodline Necro spam will cost you two life per token -- with just Inalla to kill you get (about; the math gets more complicated with trigger stacking) 7 damage per 5 vampires, technically per turn but really you want everyone to get dead before you have to untap your shit. That's not going to happen at 7 to them for 10 to your dome though you can at least reach parity with Goblin Bombardment and maybe win with Pandemonium

If you want to ignore the cost of Inalla's ability, and even profit, take Mana Echoes instead.

I guess my one hold over with the wizards is I'm not sure how to win outside of infinite combo, which I'm trying to avoid I guess. I've wanted to build Wizard tribal for a long time though.

Dragons is 'easier' and while I'm worried about getting blown out harder I do like the fact that it comes with a full set of the basic lands which I think look kind of pretty.

The dragons precon did it right

Ramos is preety good, but the best Dragon Tribal commander will always be Scion. The Ur-Dragon is good for casual gayming but will never be more than a Timmy's wet dream

I like this year set's decks. We have a deck for Timmies(Dragons), a deck for Johnny/Spikes in Wizards and Timmy/Spikes with Vamps, and a deck for fucking retards with Cats

Last year were great, but what they printed was far more powerful than anything outside there for the colors. People have no reason to not play Breya, Atraxa, Yidris or the Partners if they want to 4 color. This year, none of the decks are THE BEST EVER at something, which is nice

You need a lock of some description. This is Zur we're talking about so I think you could manifest a Stasis-based hard lock fairly easily. At that point you can pull out good old chronatog and just let your opponents draw themselves to death one card at a time.

It's difficult to make control work without being at least a little mean. If you don't lock or Stax, there's only so long you can suppress a whole board before you run dry, even given Zur's advantages, so you generally want to combo in order to win. If your commander is a legit wincon, this is less true -- I run The Scarab God as a bounce/discard control shell but Scarab God does global life-loss and alchemizes anything I kill into another 4/4 on the board for me, making my resources psuedo-infinite.

Zur doesn't do anything like that: Instead, he tutors. Being able to snag specific cards from your deck lends itself to (given what subser Zur can fetch) either Combo (Grab Necropotence or a compo piece that fits the bill) or Voltron (Grab Battle Mastery/Daybreak Coronet and shit).

If you really want to play Zur Control, you might consider Voltron on Zur as your wincon. He can make himself this big, shroud, double-strike monster that can chew through players pretty fast. If you use your control elements mostly to protect him, you'll have a chance in a casual fun group.

This is my currently undefeated (19-0 matches, 38-2 in games) 1v1 list.
I even won a game vs Nissa with one land.

For multi I played the same list with the following changes:
>Drop: Lightning Greaves, Smuggler's Copter, Liliana of the Veil, Daretti Ingenious Iconoclast, Cracling Doom, Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix,
>Add: Purphoros God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Cursed Totem, Damping Matrix, Rest in peace, Stony Silence, Vampiric Tutor, Teferi's Protection
It's not 4c Hermit Druid, but it's been beating or at least doing massive damage in non-100% tables.

And Abobo is shit, literally "dies to removal" the commander, my bro bought it and built it for 1v1 and it's been losing to others in our playgroup like Zurgo, Karlov, Baral, Tymna-Kondo and Tymna-Kraum While I've only had a bit of trouble vs Titania and Meren.
