No, you can only fetch lands that have "Forest" or "Island" in the type line (the bit directly below the illustration), so things like Forest, Island, Breeding Pool, Dryad Arbor etc.

I really don't think Mirror Gallery is worth the slot; to combat the problem of having multiple Kruphixes be dead draws, you're introducing a card that will be a dead draw if you don't draw at least 2 Kruphixes. You'd be much better off just adding some cheap card filtering like Serum Visions or Opt so you're less likely to have too many Kruphix in the first place, which will also improve the deck's overall consistency.

fixing the manabase is probably the most important part of this deck. You're going to want to get rid of anything that enters the battlefield tapped, then you're going to want to add Inkmoth Nexus. After that, you'll want a Dryad Arbor, 1-2 Pendelhaven and ~8-11 fetches (Misty Rainforest, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Wooded Foothills... cards that can fetch either Breeding Pool or dryad arbor or basic forest)

Wouldn't a singleton Dryad Arbor give you an alternate way to go infinite?

lordjaraxxus64 - I Agree with your comment about the Phyrexian Crusader. Even as I was typing it I was kinda iffy, but figured I'd bring it up anyway. I do still feel like you want 3 max on Spell Pierce maindeck, with the forth copy in the side. I also understand if getting cards is difficult, but instead of Illness in the Ranks eventually getting a copy or 2 of Engineered Explosives is more versatile and does the same thing (albeit, a little more costly of mana).

As for the Jace Vs. Search - Your deck is so focused on protecting creatures, that JVP seems way better than Search. Jace also fuels himself, and his flip is much more powerful than the flip side of Search.

I also wanted to touch on Shapers' Sanctuary. If it's good enough to be played as one in the main, (which I feel like it may not be, seeing as according to MTGgoldfish 4 of the top 6 decks which control roughly 25% of the meta, have little or no interaction.) then you should probably have more in the sideboard. Again this might be an actually owning the card issue, whcih is fine, but I feel if you want it, it's in the sideboard as 2 or 3 copies, and not in the maindeck, because it won't be relevant enough.

The last comment after re looking is that you probably can shave a land. Your curve is low, and honestly I played 19 lands with 1 being Dryad Arbor and the deck still functioned well. 21 without a mainboard arbor may be excessive. Also a card to think about is Thought Scour. One cast and you're Become Immense is almost guaranteed to be 1 mana.

Again I do love this list, and might even make the transition myself into this version, I'm just trying to work out out loud with you what my deck might look like. :)

since you're running BOPs, maybe Gavony Township as a 1-of (i know you dont want many non-colored mana sources, but it could be another mana dump if youre stuck with some jank hand). Here's the changes i'd make:

-4 Rancor (love it, but begs to get 2-for-1'd, when most of your creatures are bolt-able and have no evasion or protection, otherwise and it makes BOP into an actual real creature late game), -1 Forest, +1 CoCo, +1 Kird Ape, +1 Gavony Township, +1 Dryad Arbor, +1 Loam Lion.

For SB options, i like Stony Silence, Ancient Grudge, and Smash to Smithereens (in that order) better than Nature's Claim. hell, i even like Naturalize or Disenchant better, tbh. i dont think 2 mana is out of the question. since you are playing a zoo variation, you arent likely to slam a bunch of 5+ power creatures at the opponent at once, so the 4 life gain might actually matter. idk. personal preference, i suppose. it is nice to have some enchantment removal as well in case of bogles, but that kind of depends on the meta.

With CoCo in your deck, your sideboard could be open to more tech creatures, instead of some of the spells/enchantments. like Spellskite for bogles, Vithian Renegades, War Priest of Thune, Reclamation Sage, and Viridian Shaman for artifact/enchantment hate, Lantern Scout, Kor Firewalker, or Lone Missionary for burn hate. or generally a bunch of random hatebears and miscellaneous stuff to cover your bases like Harsh Mentor, Loxodon Smiter, Tunnel Ignus, Aegis of the Gods, Hushwing Gryff, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Qasali Pridemage, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Gaddock Teeg... Basically whatever your meta has a ton of going on, theres a creature version to hate on it. I'm a big fan of Rest in Peace because it totally bones a handful of decks, but if you're firing off Collected Companys, with your SB hate lost in your deck somewhere, you stand a much better chance of pulling it out, than if it were an enchantment.

Just some suggestions. love zoo. like the idea youve got with the dino and god in there. seems cool. +1

cool deck

Sargeras on It's s pronounced bOgle!

Having played with and against Bogles many times, I have some suggestions.

  1. Cut Snake Umbra in favor of Spider Umbra, the umbras are critical to the early game, especially if you plan on playing Kor Spiritdancer. (Also, 3 cmc should be winning you the game, not drawing you cards in this type of deck)

  2. Get a Dryad Arbor if you want to upgrade, as it serves as both an additional creature and land, and is tutorable if you decide to get fetches.

  3. The sideboard needs tuning, Leyline of Sanctity is amazing at defeating things like this decks worst enemy, Thoughtseize, it also works against Lilli, and and many other fringe cards like Blessed Alliance, that can destroy most of this deck's gameplan. If you decide that is too much $$, good budget options to look into are Torpor Orb and Suppression Field. Also, Seal of Primordium is the best artifct disruption you can have, since you can play it and destroy something like a Chalice of the Void on one.

  4. You need Stony Silence, decks like Tron are great at destroying this deck since cards like Oblivion Stone set you back to square one. Stony silence will also allow you to get past cards like Ratchet Bomb and Engineered Explosives and will slow down decks like Ad Nauseeum that you cant interact with.

  5. You might ant to look into getting Temple Garden over Brushland, because since Bant Eldrazi took all the painlands and jumped the price, the shocks can actually be cheaper to buy and will be more beneficial for you in the long run.

These are my suggestions, feel free to take them as you please.
