Arc Trail Discussion

Hi! Thanks for your deck, I am a big fan of non-UG madness myself.
Cards to consider, espcially if you feel mana-confident:Violent Eruption as it helps wipe out several smaller creatures and can be nice against aggro decks. Arc Trail works similarly and you can cast it from your hand.
I tried to put together a GR spellshaper madness and even though I have a weak spot for Bola Warrior, it is not very mana-efficient and you cannot use it outside combat, which is the main hinderance of most of your discard outlets. I would suggest Kris Mage who is cheaper to cast and more versatile, especially against aggros. Or you can use her to finish off a bigger creature. Or in the worst Undertaker.
If you are not playing against black and you feel you can muster toghether BB, Gorgon Recluse could be nice.
Any particular reason for not running the Twins of Maurer Estate since you feature them on the deck description?

It has been a long while since my last update. Four cards were target banned at Zurgo since the last update, Sulfuric Vortex, Price of Progress, Fireblast and Eidolon of the Great Revel were all banned. I won't say too much on the justifications of the bans, other than some of the Rules Committee's reasons were very poorly stated, something about the singleton nature of the format and the inability to play around a few of the cards that were legitimately powerful in the deck. In general I think that the Zurgo deck is, or should I say say was very beatable with some deck building changes, "losing to Price too much?", play a less greedy deck, "can't beat Vortex?", play a catch all answer, "Fireblast killing you too often?" play some more lifegain, "Eidolon too painful?", play more removal. However the Rules Committee felt otherwise, and added some of Zurgo's most powerful tools to the ban list.
As far as personal changes are concerned, I have cut Brazen Scourge and Flame Rift for the time being. In their places, I have added Rampaging Ferocidon as an anti-lifegain card, as well as some hate for the twin style combo's, of which have recently become popular locally. Nest Robber, which is yet another 2/1 haste for 2, which is the exact type of card I look for. I have also added Lava Dart, Arc Trail and Seal of Fire as there are an uptick in tiny creature decks as well as dork decks. Finally Smuggler's Copter is back in as it is a fantastic card, it play around wraths and is some flood insurance, also it flies which is useful in a blocker heavy metagame. Copter was cut originially because it feels best when you use a summoning sick creature to crew it and effectively give a creature "haste" for the turn, seeing as most of my creatures already had haste, I decided to cut it, however that was a mistake because the cards is just too powerful to have sitting on the sidelines.
I don't really play this deck nearly as much as I used to, however I will try to keep up with it and maybe I will take it out for a spin when my meta has all but forgotten about it.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I totally forgot about Burst Lightning, as well as Wild Slash, Electrickery, and Tarfire. I'm really only looking for 1-mana cards, as my 2-slot is pretty full, but thanks for the other suggestions like Arc Trail and Searing Blaze. Which cards mentioned above do you guys think are the best?

Arc Trail is one of my pet cards. Divides damage and passes out three.
