Opaline Unicorn Discussion
2 weeks ago
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!

You probably replace the Witches' Eye with a Lifecrafter's Bestiary since it provides an upkeep auto scry and some card advantage without having to either equip, or tap a creature. The Guilds of Ravnica set made a reprint of Chromatic Lantern so it may not too costly an alternative for the Opaline Unicorn!

Personally, looking a bit closer, I would go with Karametra, God of Harvests as a commander. I did a gatherer search including Antelope, Elk, Horse, Unicorn.
Crested Sunmare is a horse that makes other horses.

Some suggestions to consider: take out Manalith, Opaline Unicorn, Embodiment of Spring, and Gruul Keyrune, replace with Gruul Signet, Simic Signet, and Izzet Signet, and Sol Ring. For flying, Wonder provides a similar effect to Archetype of Imagination, and is a little harder to deal with. You will want to add more lands to this deck in order to cast your big creatures on time. I would say 35-38 lands, and cut some of your sorceries for ramp spells like Rampant Growth, Farseek,Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, or Skyshroud Claim. Thassa, God of the Sea is a more reliable way to make creatures unblockable than Invisibility or Way of the Thief. I always include a copy of Decimate in any deck that can play it. The same goes for Cyclonic Rift and Chaos Warp. Lastly, a few creatures that you could upgrade your deck with: Sakura-Tribe Elder, Joraga Treespeaker, Sylvan Caryatid, Courser of Kruphix, Genesis, Avenger of Zendikar, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Progenitor Mimic.

this looks like a whole lot of fun already :D Since you have a good deal of things with counters on them, proliferate would be of great help :) you could go for counterspells, burn, or creatures to give you that - so plenty of options there.
Hellkite Igniter is ADORABLE - look at how happy it is :D
Opaline Unicorn is beautiful and very practical.
Ever since I started doing artifact decks Broodstar has held a very special place in my heart :D
Solemn Simulacrum is always a win.
Bosh, Iron Golem can put in a lot of work :)
if you end up with a lot of golem tokens, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon could be very useful.
If you are serious about having angels be part of the deck - there's good old Platinum Angel :)
Those are my 2 cents. Stay frosty!

What are you taking out for your win condition and how do you stay alive until you draw it? Maybee some "faster" Card advantage would help, even a Harmonize.
If you are looking to ramp as fast as possible I would suggest Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl especially since you are already playing Voyaging Satyr for Nykthos. Maybee take out Opaline Unicorn... Birds of Paradise is an auto-include as well, you could take out Golden Hind imho it's not worth the extra mana.
With all the Ramp 32 Lands looks a bit too much as well, you could probably go down to 24, probably even lower and still easily cast everything you draw.

Have you considered Torrential Gearhulk ? You can use it and other cards like it to recast an instant from your graveyard, which can reduce the amount of instants you need.
For mana ramp, I see you have Sol Ring and some fetch cards, but consider using Opaline Unicorn, Manalith, Prophetic Prism, and Cultivator's Caravan. You can reduce both your fetch cards and some land cards with the con of having removable permanents. With the same mana idea in mind, other great cards for coloured mana are Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Satyr Hedonist, Voyaging Satyr, Zhur-Taa Druid, Cabal Coffers, and other cards along those lines.
Great looking deck regardless of anything I've said. I actually had a hard time coming up with suggestions.
