I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite , Aria of Flame , Ash Zealot , Bomb Squad , Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter , Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite , Karplusan Minotaur , Leyline of Lightning , Mindsparker , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance , Tephraderm , Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus , Warstorm Surge

So I've played a bit more, so far

3-0 Izzet Phoenix

3-1 4c Saheeli

1-2 Pyro Prison

1-1 Mardu Pyro

My current creature package is:

4x Monastery Swiftspear

4x Bomat Courier

3x Soul-Scar Mage

2x Ash Zealot

2x Harsh Mentor

4x Eidolon of the Great Revel

3x Rampaging Ferocidon

2x Goblin Chainwhirler

With the rest of the list mostly same as yours (although, I accidentally played a few games with my sideboard searing blood's in my mainboard, and kind of liked it a lot?)

Some thoughts (still very new to modern so there's a lot of interactions I might just be completely un-aware of):

I see why we'd have Relic over Ravenous Trap now, didn't really want to bring in ravenous trap vs mardu pyro but Relic would be sweat, so I'll probably make that change too. Also saves me the hazzle of finding non-proxy ravenous traps, which are completely impossible to buy where I live.

I was thinking if we could replace ratchet bomb with mainboard Blast Zone , until I realized that it 1) Gets blanked by Blood Moon 2) Starts with a counter on it so we can't even hit chalice 3) Probably screws up our RR on turn two too badly.

Oh well, it sounded good in my head before I remembered about those minor details.

What do you think about Pillage vs Molten Rain for the sideboard? Doubling as artifact removal is nice, one of the main decks we'd bring land destruction in against is Tron right? Which makes it pull double duty.

The new canopy cycle of lands, I almost want to go UP in lands a little bit if we include them? Flooding is less bad since we can sac it to draw, more lands -> more reliable mana for our 3 drops. Not sure if it opens up any interesting sideboard options at all on its own, but with some RW fetches maybe?

Speaking of 3 drops, tried Scab-Clan Berserker at all?

multimedia on need help building zurgo

Hey, consider Warriors with Zurgo as Commander and Aurelia, the Warleader at the top of the mana curve?

There's many budget Warriors. Some that stand out are Mindblade Render , Rushblade Commander , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , Ash Zealot , Bloodsoaked Champion , Blood-Chin Rager , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Brutal Hordechief , Azra Oddsmaker ,etc. Aurelia is not a Warrior, but she can come into play after Zurgo for big double combat phases swings. Some budget pay offs for being tribal are: Raiders' Spoils , Shared Animosity , Obsidian Battle-Axe , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Metallic Mimic , etc.

Zurgo benefits a lot from repeatable double strike being able to potentially do 14 or more points of Commander damage with one Zurgo attack. Arashin Foremost , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Duelist's Heritage , Fireshrieker , Ajani, Caller of the Pride . Boros Charm is also an excellent card in Commander.

If I ask this about Ash Zealot , it's because my mate and most regular opponent is building a mono black zombie/discard deck. And I'd like to have some answers to it, already got Tormod's Crypt ... I know it is supposed to be a terrible match up for him, don't worry.

Lathnu Hellion looks good, but I'd like to keep Ahn-Crop Crasher for its ability to tap defenders. Not quite sure about that, I need to playtest this.

Ash Zealot will stop anything that is cast from the graveyard so it will not stop most zombies, but it stops Lingering Souls , and Faithless Looting which are two of the best cards in the format. and anyway, zombies aren't super powerful or common anyway

Zarathoustra on Reduced to Ashes

Does Ash Zealot work against a zombie deck (this would but nuts), or is it just countering sorcery/instant spells ? About Spark Elemental there is not much to say, this would fit perfectly in there. I'll probably remove the Monstrosaur at some point, to expensive, no fast enough. Great suggestion mate, and yeah this is supposed to be budget. I try to avoid any unecessary cost.

also Ash Zealot is good right now, it hurts people if they play Snapcaster Mage and Faithless Looting

goldlion on A Semi-Comprehensive List of All Hatebears (RAV)

It's great you started putting together this resource, SynergyBuild! Thanks.

I was wondering, I have Deathgorge Scavenger but I always wonder if he's worth a slot in EDH. Is he good enough? I am building a mid-level STAX Grand Warlord Radha , maybe there?

Also - I thought hatebears are meant to take down effectiveness of other decks? I'm confused about some cards on this list; I'm wondering why Growth-Chamber Guardian , Jadelight Ranger , or Llanowar Elves made it on here? Wouldn't Scavenging Ooze (while technically not a "bear"), Leonin Arbiter , Ash Zealot be examples of hatebears, but not those guys?
