This is my beatstick brew for some of my more competitive matches. This deck is centered around Zurgo Helmsmasher because he is the ultimate commander for solo face smashing. Not only is he a big, hasty body, but he can survive any boardwipe you cast on your turn. The majority of this deck is about control; spot removal, boardwipes, oppression enchantments/artifacts and even a few counters. It has an element of Voltron in it with all the equipments, but the main flavor is to control the board presence so make sure Zurgo is the biggest stick around.

: Chandra's Ignition + Zurgo Helmsmasher + Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault

Honestly any boardwipe will work for this combo, but I like Ignition the best because it has Zurgo himself deal the damage, which will add a ridiculous amount of +1/+1 counters on him (especially if your opponent is playing tokens) and then you just get to keep beating face with him to every single opponent until you win!

Please let me know what you think, feel free to leave any suggestions you might have in the comments (I am always trying to make my decks better) and DON'T FORGET TO +1 IF YOU LIKE THE BREW!!!

also Darksteel Plate survives those and Darksteel Forge would make a Jokulhaups usually end with only zurgo and his equipment, usually wins you the game too and doesnt hit your enchantments :)

and if you can afford it Crucible of Worlds lets you replay the lands you blew up, and also avoids them with forge out!

All good suggestions but they are pretty high up on the curve. The most success I've had with this deck comes from wiping the board the turn before you drop Zurgo. Those are good wipes but they are a dead draw T1-6.
