AmbientCrepes on 1v1 Zurgo Bellstriker

6 days ago

I play Zurgo a lot in 20 life, and I know that the format is very different, but in general we want to be doing the same things. In 20 life you can very reliably go for a heavy burn plan and have it work out well. This strategy is in my opinion very sub-optimal at 30 life. I think you basically want to be as heavy on the beatdown plan as possible. 30-life zurgo was basically a meta-gaming deck, if you see a lot of control decks, this is were you want to be, Green meta-game = not so much. From what I understand of the format for 1v1 commander online, it is heavily slanted to control(vial smasher etc), and somewhat combo (baral). This means that Zurgo is in a good spot, however if the Nissa/Azusa decks get very popular, or more hate bear style decks come up Zurgo will get much worse.

Here are my suggestions for your deck, cut the following:

  • Bomat Courier
  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
  • Countryside Crusher
  • Grenzo Havoc Raiser
  • Hazorent the Fervent
  • Jaya Ballard Task Mage
  • Legion Loyalist
  • Sin Proder
  • Thermo-Alchemist
  • Dangerous Wager
  • Skullclamp
  • Faithless Looting
  • Kari-Zev's Expertise
  • Lava Spike
  • Molten Rain
  • Wheel of Fortune

Some of these are too slow(Wheel of Fortune, Skullclamp), some of there just aren't efficient enough for 30 life(Lava Spike), and some are just outright bad (Bomat Courier, Sin Proder etc.).

What you want to look for in your cards is the following; repeatable sources damage (mostly in the form of creatures though artifacts and enchantments are great sources as well) or the ability for your instants/sorceruies to kill creatures as well as deal damage to players.

Here is what I would add to the deck:

The deck's best hands are turn one zurgo, turn two 2-cmc creature (preferable hasty) so I've tried to maximize the number of 2-cmc creature to ensure this happens as often as possible. If you end up wanting more 2-cmc creatures I suggest looking towards Ember Hauler or Goblin Bushwhacker

Next lets add a little beef to your threats:

Hero is essentially, Hellrider # 2 so it is great. Heelcutter is great at allowing you to spend you mana every turn, and also Superb against single blockers. Koth is just an outstanding card that allows you to diversify your threats in the face of wraths and can win games single handedly.

Instants and sorceries you should add:

These are efficent and you are already playing effective copies of 3 of the cards. If you find yourself running into more blockers, or the meta game is more green, I would look to the following cards: Flametongue Kavu, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Flame Slash, Mizzium Mortars, Roast. These are great at clearing paths for your creatures to get through uncontested.

Personally I am not a fan of either Chandra, Pyromaster or Outpost Siege as they feel tough to maneuver around counterspells and are very slow against combo. As a result I would cut them and play Flame Slash and Forked Bolt (which feels great against many of the x/1 of the format).

In terms of your mana base, if you are playing grim Lavamancer, you should be to play all the red fetches. Encroaching wastes should be wasteland (I'm sure budget is a big concern here but even still I would just cut it), Rishadan Port is another great land you aren't playing. Mutavault is excellent to help with flooding. Hellion Cruicible seems a little underwhelming, and honestly most of the creatures in the deck have hast so Hanweir Battlements seems like a pipe dream to try to meld, however I think it is mostly a free roll if you are dead set on playing it. Barbarian ring is another card you could be playing, and so is teetering peaks. I also tend to play 37 lands as it is roughly equivalent to 22 lands in 60 card decks, and you are trying to cast 4 drops in this deck but 36 should theoretically work.

Best of luck!

Yeah if you're using Bloodrage Brawler and Neheb, the Worthy, you've really got to go full Minotaur.

Even now this deck is a bit all over the shop.

4x Hazoret the Fervent is 1 too many, I feel.

Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran would work better than Cultivator's Caravan, imo.

You have two few lands for a midrange deck, which is what this is.


The problem you keep having with this deck is lack of synergy.

Speedway Fanatic is GREAT with Vehicles ... but you only have six Vehicles. On her own the Fanatic is fairly rubbish.

Have a look at Speedway Champions, which is a Vehicle deck I built that works well.

Then choose something for this deck to be, and get rid of everything that it isn't.

Is it a Vehicles deck?

Is it a deck focused around getting the most from Discard? (if so, you WOULD have four Hazoret the Fervent, but you would then need 4x Supernatural Stamina to protect her)

Is it something else entirely?

I had to change the structure completely. My favorite Neheb, the Worthy became unworthy. And so i cut Bloodrage Brawler and Olivia, Mobilized for War. I filled the slot with vehicles Cultivator's Caravan and Renegade Freighter. So i put in Forerunner of Slaughter again and Speedway Fanatic and Glorybringer. => Now it is quiet good a.k.a playable.>= But the card loss with brawler was too hard. Brawler is beast with neheb. Without him not so much and overall the deck was too slow + the minotaurs get killed very easy and then the deck is really out of gas and cardless.

I'm in love with this deck. I played it for the first time with Selvala (grouphug), Depala (never saw that one, it was a very aggressive Vehicle deck) and Erebos.

Selvala made a deal with Depala, who was attacking Erebos early, to finish me off after Erebos and before her. And so she helped her out with Archangel of Strife, Selvala, Explorer Returned, and so on. The Vehicle deck got so much fuel it eliminated Erebos around turn 6 with a Speedway Fanatic and Heart of Kiran, buffed by the Archangel, then Depala turned to attack me.

Fortunately, on my turn 6, I attacked Depala (who was tapped out) with Narset and was that a great trigger. I put Indestructibility on Narset, as well as Steel of the Godhead, I put Strionic Resonator onto the battlefield and cast Temporal Mastery.

Next turn, I cast Oblivion Ring from my hand and copy it with Strionic Resonator, exiling two potential blockers of Depala. Then, I use my Scroll Rack (which helped me immensely after being cast turn 5... thankfully it survived a full circle), and put very good spells on top. And Narset allows me to cast them for free as she swings for lethal commander damage - I cast Expropriate, stealing the biggest creature of Depala and the Archangel of Strife, then I cast Waves of Aggression followed by Izzet Signet and Beacon of Tomorrows. In the next combat, I put Elspeth, Knight-Errant onto the battlefield and cast Fury of the Horde as I attack, allowing me to buff Narset and kill Selvala with commander damage next combat.

I'm certain I will face a lot more hate the next time I play, but this deck can have such explosive turns it's ridiculous. Even if you attack just once, you can win the game off of that one attack. And I love it. I really do.

Anything special from Amonkhet you're considering for this deck?

You should definately conaider thraben inspector and inventors apprentice running this many vehicles would ve fine if you had creatures to wipe off the board also Siege Modification wouldn't be a bad addition. Scrapheap is great so is motorist but depala and renegade wheelsmith slow the tempo down. Maybe Speedway Fanatic? And last but not least a full playset of start your engines fatal push and cultivators caravan

Cool Deck!

I personally would take out Master Trinketeer. It is a good card, but I do not think that you have enough servos or thopters to really make it useful. I would replace it with Veteran Motorist or Speedway Fanatic if you are more budget.
