Whats up,

While I think this is a very interesting build and a creative take on Zoo, I playtested the deck and found often that it had a hard time keeping up.

The deck has 20 creatures which makes it very hard to go on the beatdown plan. Even if you manage to play a creature, it may get killed by removal, and at that point it's unlikely you have another creature in your hand to play with the 20 creatures in the deck. This low creature count also causes the problems of Blossoming Defense and Unflinching Courage often being dead draws for they will not be able to target anything. This is what happened when I playtested this deck.

In addition, only 12 creatures of those 20 are 2 CMC or under. This makes it very unlikely to stick even one of them for a long amount of time, and in a deck where your plan is to go wide FAST, this is also a problem. The other 8 creatures of which are 4 ofs (or in the case of the Ghor Clan, a pump, which is a dead draw if you don't have creatures or less than 4 lands) are tough to cast in a 20 land deck. It is very likely to miss a land drop in the first 3-5 turns, which will make the 4 drops a turn 5 or 6 play usually; too slow for an aggro deck.

What I did like about the deck was the Manamorphose. Essentially cuts down the size of the deck and makes it easier to find your threats.

My suggestions: Definitely up the creature count to 30 or 32. I would not go the full 4 of of Qasali Pridemage, at least main deck. Maybe if you still want all 4, a 2-2 split or even a 1-3 split in the main and side would be a lot better and give you room for creatures like Voice of Resurgence (should be a 4 of in this deck). Scavenging Ooze would also play very nicely in this deck. Maybe a Shalai in the sideboard for matchups heavy in removal. A Gavony Township in the main would be nice for late game. Having some mana ramp with Birds of Paradise and/or Noble Hierarch would help you flood the board super quick.

I'd also go up on the full 4 of each fetchland (Wooded Foothills and Windswept Heath).

Hope I helped man, and feel free to message me if you want any more advice!

I agree with most of evilclown5609's suggestions. However in my experience Gavony Township is a little slow compared to what I feel like this deck is wanting to do; which is beat face and beat face fast.

I'd run instant pump spells like: Phytoburst for pure pump, Vines of Vastwood for protection and pump, Predator's Strike for trample, Larger Than Life for trample and pump, Berserk to stack on top of other pumps, Might of Old Krosa for cheap pump, Mutagenic Growth for cheap pump.

I of course wouldn't run all of those, but rather some variation of one or two of them at least on the sideboard if nothing else. Definitely sideboard a couple copies of Become Immense if I thought I might be going against a mill deck because of that extra 6 damage I could get in on one swing. The main thing I'd go for is trample and try to get my opponent to waste a spell dealing with my pump spell or risk being hit for extra damage, especially if I had Voice of Resurgence out on the field. Also sideboard Dryad Militant. It's good answer for instant and sorcery recursion decks.

@ sonalexander

Yes, Alchemist's Refuge is indeed a great card for this build. This being said, I always seems to draw all my colorless mana land early game and I end up mana color screwed. For this reason I stay at 3 or less in the deck.

I cannot cut Homeward Path or High Market ( I wish I could run 4 of each in the deck )

And Gavony Township usually give me the game with seedborn on the field.

- 3x Gavony Township
- 4x Dauntless Escort

Gavony Township is a pretty good 1-of, as a lategame manasink.

Coiling Oracle can be good with anything "landfall". I think a full set of those would be good, and a single copy of Courser of Kruphix - a bit of lifegain and not drawing lands can be a lategame advantage.

Fetchlands would be great with Tireless Tracker. And if you add fetches, you could use Lotus Cobra rather than Sylvan Caryatid for extra mana.

If you plan on using +1/+1 counters for growing your creatures, Hardened Scales is good too.

Mirari's Wake and Beastmaster Ascension are good ways to buff your whole board.

Garruk Wildspeaker and Overrun get you that big burst of damage from otherwise little creatures.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Gavony Township buff your board with +1/+1 counters and give you an outlet for that mana ramp.

Maybe Juniper Order Ranger.

Green Sun's Zenith be decent to get some low cost creatures out quickly. Especially if you're doing a bunch of ramping.

I'd also make sure to include some graveyard recovery like Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin since this is sounding super vulnerable to board wipes.

Also identifying expensive cards you could cut based on their importance/relative value to the deck:

Potential cuts for budget

  • Path to Exile - Swords to plowshares is the better option anyway in the casual format. Lifegain is less useful than ramp for most decks.
  • Mirari's Wake - Certainly a good card, but not essential for the deck to function. Maybe a future upgrade instead?
  • Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip - Good, but this deck doesn't go so wide or run big X spells that this is essential. Use the slot for a budget ramp piece instead?
  • Gavony Township Another good card, but you're not going so wide that this becomes a game winner
