Ancient Grudge in the board, though I may be able to take that out. I'd have to test my Affinity match up.

I never liked Stomping Ground as the green land in the Ancient Grudge version, and I disagree with Sacred Foundry here as well. Hallowed Fountain is what I would play, but I'd love to hear your reasoning.

I see most lists play Spell Snare in the main, and I think it's a good choice moving forward as BGx will be a big deck and countering Tarmogoyf or Scavenging Ooze is a big deal.

No Remands and/or Mana leak if your on a budget is just wrong, The tempo advantage is invaluable letting you capatilise tempo.

I recommend you run 23 land with a basic split of 5-1, Adding a small green splash for Ancient Grudge is a popular and effective choice in this deck, Desolate Lighthouse and Sulfur Falls help round out the mana.

No Lightning Bolt seems reallybad. It is simply the best removal-esque spell in the format.

If budget is not an issue 2-3 Cryptic Command and 1-2 Vendilion Clique are solid options.

Genesis94 on I has Zoo too?

First of all, yay Zoo -Second of all, it all depends whether you wanna run Little/Aggro Zoo, or Big Zoo.

Manabase wise, in 3-colour zoo I prefer not having the basic mountain as Blood Moon is still pretty prevalent in a lot of decks and so the basic mountain isn't needed all that much, I prefer a second Forest, but that's just me.

Big Zoo tends to have an emphasis on Knight of the Reliquary, Stormbreath Dragon occasionally, Domri Rade etc. in which case I'd run 1-2 Horizon Canopy just to facilitate her, and if you do run her, 1 Raging Ravine or Stirring Wildwood are usually the manland of choice.

Spell wise, if you're running Ghor-Clan as you are here I'd stick with Boros Charm, but if you end up orientating towards Big Zoo, I'd swap some of them for Lightning Helix.

Other than that, it's all down to personal choice really as to whether you stick with 3 colours, move to 4 and get access to Anafenza, the Foremost and Dr. Siegeman (Siege Rhino), or move to 5 and get access to Tribal Flames, but that's down to you!

Personally I adore 4-colour, as Siege Rhino adds an amazing threat no matter how early or late he turns up.

The most frequent sideboard cards are usually:

1-2 Ancient Grudge

1-2 Blood Moon

1-2 Combust

1-2 Grafdigger's Cage

1 Shatterstorm

2 Stony Silence

1-2 Wear / Tear

But even then, people fluctuate between Destructive Revelry, Choke (which is fantastic against a lot of the modern field until everyone moves to start playing Junk/Abzan/G-W-X decks now Pod's banned.)

And in Bigger Zoo some number of Chandra, Pyromaster, Ajani Vengeant, and Ajani, Mentor of Heroes sometimes find their way into sideboards just to provide sustained value and threat.

Sorry for the massive comment, but I hope some of it helps!

I already have Grafdigger's Cage for graveyards, Ancient Grudge for artifacts, and I don't think the third mode would be great in this deck. Thanks for the suggestions and I will try and jig the manabase to accommodate a few man lands.

Guttural Response and Ancient Grudge in the board. Lightning Bolt in the main? Combust against twin. Pyroclasm or Anger of the Gods against zoo.
