Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion
1 week ago
Have you considered Boros Signet, Worn Powerstone and Gilded Lotus? Heartless Hidetsugu is game over if Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is out. Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and True Conviction are great for beatdown. Boros Charm is really versatile in this deck. You can swap Take Vengeance for Swords to Plowshares. Sunforger is the greatest card in Boros and can grab any instant at 4 CMC or less. // It's good to run Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Boros Guildgate are good for mana fixing. Slayers' Stronghold, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion and Rogue's Passage are good for combat tricks; Mistveil Plains brings recursion; Spinerock Knoll is great at cheating costs; Secluded Steppe and Forgotten Cave for card selection. // Revitalize, Lightning Helix, Demystify, Fountain of Renewal are subpar in this deck.

Zurgo is definitely a fun commander to play, I would recommend going for the aggro/voltron route. Cards that give Zurgo himself double strike or extra combats for set up. Here might be some cards that can be considered: Seize the Day, Sigarda's Aid, Combat Celebrant, Silverblade Paladin, Arashin Foremost, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, World at War, Duelist's Heritage, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Ajani, Caller of the Pride
Cards I would recommend cutting would be: Resolute Archangel, Plaguecrafter, Opaline Unicorn, Howling Golem, Fleshbag Marauder, Miraculous Recovery, Risk Factor, Smelt, Hazoret's Undying Fury, Impale, Mind Rot, Repeating Barrage, Rise from the Grave, Shadow Slice, Walk the Plank, Arcane Encyclopedia...oh man there is actually quite a bit...
The most important thing to see when deck building is what is your main goal of your deck? After that it's how to achieve you goal or gameplan. Than add cards to support your game plan. For your Zurgo deck, I would recommend adding in more cheap ramp, removal spells, card draw, than protection. The cards I suggested earlier should be under $5 at most and should be affordable to get.
Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

Thank you for the reply scumbling1! I have considered a few of those cards, mainly Heartless Hidetsugu. Considering that Hidetsugu + Dictate of the Twin Gods or any other damage doubler card such as Insult / Injury draws the game for everyone at the table if there is no interaction, (and honestly if everyone loses you still pretty much win in a casual game in my opinion), it is a potent option since there are multiple ways to set up the combo and if you have a card like angel's grace you still "legitimately" win. I'd say that if your meta is more combo/blue deck heavy and there aren't many token decks in your play group, chuck the Ghostly Prison type effects for Hidetsugu and damage doublers, which are potent on their on. I do not like Dire Fleet Ravager in this deck because there aren't many options to abuse its etb over and over. Bond of agony is ok, however since we don't have access to ramp in Mardu, I decided against it. Finally, I am on the fence about Havoc Festival. It stops enemy life gain, but also yours, which is sometimes needed. A better card might be Tainted Remedy Which you could combine with Beacon of Immortality to kill someone. However, I feel that Hidetsugu is a better option in general since it pretty much ignores your opponent's life totals.

griffstick I didn't even think about tossing in infect...good call. I may opt for Gratuitous Violence over Dictate of the Twin Gods just because it targets my opponents and not me....but who knows right.

Damage Doubling all day long Dictate of the Twin Gods and Wound Reflection double damage for the quick win. Second infect, Grafted Exoskeleton,Glistening Oil, and Phyresis put infect on your cmdr or Psychosis Crawler for the quick competitive win and maybe add one more tutor

You have Iroas as Commander yet you do not play Hero of Iroas or Dictate of the Twin Gods? They would fit quite well in this deck. You may also wish to consider Anax and Cymede. Perhaps Sigil of the Empty Throne may help also.
