The manabase is probably way off. Its pretty hard to play five colors and still be able to get either white or red untapped on turn one. Maybe Battlefield Forge would be the answer, but seems clunky in a five color deck. Trying to play five colors will still probably destroy this whole thing. I’ve emphasized getting white mana on turn one, because Zurgo’s dash is very good in the later turns as well.
