    Re: Zoo

    Good thoughts, thanks for the response. I do agree that Lava Dart can be problematic; I'm not sure if something like Mutagenic Growth would be beneficial to combat that or not. In a Shadow version...

    Re: Zoo

    I think it's a symptom of the metagame. I've been checking mtgtop8 to see what the popular decks are currently making waves. Shadow and Jund are both fairly popular, so having ways of dealing with...

    Re: Zoo

    The whole point of revisiting the thread was to include 8x Steppe Lynx (Akoum Hellhound.) Guide Beast isn't good on turn 1 because it sets us back a land drop (twice if we attack turns 1-2) and we...

    Re: Zoo

    Yeah, no Atarka's Command was definitely a mistake. I also think Narnam Renegade is definitely an upgrade to Loam Lion (thank you jethstriker!) Not having been involved in Modern in quite some time...

    Re: Zoo

    I wouldn't play Mountain, I would play Forest first (enables all 3 'land matters' 1-drops Nacatl/Ape/Lion) and then a Plains if I could fit it in. However, drawing a basic land in the opener is...

    Re: Zoo

    Saw a mtggoldfish video where SaffronOlive put together a landfall deck but used a bunch of (what I consider) sub-par card choices (Plated Geopede, Brushfire Elemental) but one thing I think he got...

    RANCOR!!! I think you're right, it feels like a 2-of.

    Re: Zoo

    This guy looks interesting by enabling repeatable landfall triggers for Steppe Lynx/Akoum Hellhound. With shocklands it might be too much unless it's our third land and we just bounce/replay it...

    Re: Zoo

    Thanks for the tidbit, being weak to Lava Dart would be very bad. Losing 2 creatures at instant speed for only R would be devastating. Mutagenic Growth could be an option alongside sandbagging...

    Re: Zoo

    I will get the ACommands in there, I can easily cut some number of Rancor/Helix.

    Narnam Renegade is ok, I might replace Loam Lion with that. The deathtouch is fine, but it will enter as a 1/2 a...

    Re: Zoo

    Uber-necro here, I haven't played Modern in 2020 yet...

    Looking at this dude and thinking it might be time to rebuild Zoo with possibly 8 Steppe Lynx. Being red is a pretty big upgrade, which...

    Zoo

    There's a modern 1K coming up, not sure if I want to go or not. The format doesn't interest me nearly as much as legacy, but I see an opportunity to take advantage of a shifting metagame with zoo....
