Creature — Ape
Delve (Each creature you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for .)
Hooting Mandrills Discussion
3 weeks ago
Sheltered Thicket has two types, mountain and forest, so it helps with Kird Ape . Maybe you can focus on your lands to surprise your adversary with Primal Bellow , you may try Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds . Or, following the shout style: Roar of the Crowd .
In fact this deck can use a lot of cards ideas. So I believe you will maintain it opened for new ideas you may have for quite a while.

The "problem" with Nemesis of Mortals is that it lacks evasion and if I was using a card which cared about creatures in the graveyard it would probably be Skaab Ruinator and I'd go back to 3 colours. By all means test it, but I suspect it will just be chump blocked and that it isn't really better than Gurmag Angler Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Hooting Mandrills which don't care about card type...

With Faithless Looting (alongside Hogaak) banned, a Golgari shell might well be the best way to approach graveyard decks. However as someone who played Hogaak and before that Hollow One (with the Vengevines) in modern I'd say your missing a payoff creature. The problem with Vengevine is it dies and is exiled to Anger of the Gods which is a pretty common sweeper. You really want one of the bigger delve beaters here; Tombstalker Hooting Mandrills Gurmag Angler Necropolis Fiend Tasigur, the Golden Fang Become Immense or with perhaps a little work Soulflayer
My plan has been to try Tombstalker, I'm not sure it's good enough and unlike Hogaak can't be recurred, the other option that might work in a Vengevine shell, if you want the blue splash is Skaab Ruinator which is both a zombie and a horror, which might still be relevant... The deck list I'm working on is Ode to Hogaak if you fancy a look.

Very spicy, +1. One small suggestion, however: for a more consistent win-con, how about Hooting Mandrills . It’ll be pretty easy to cast given the number of cards discarded early-game, and the amount of lands sacrificed.

running gurmag and nimble mongoose in the same deck seems bad they are so counter intuitive together. I think if you want another threat it should be the set of gurmag angler's or just a couple of Hooting Mandrills as they both dodge the most common removal in modern, and work in the same way with the graveyard. Also if you are running a delver deck it feels bad but you probably need to swap the opts for Serum Visions as you need more looks at cards to consistently set up the delver flips. The other card you could test, i'm personally not convinced it's good enough but it might work is Scour All Possibilities

Tribal flames is definitely something to consider. It's bad when I get Botanical Sanctum . And there isn't much in modern with 4 toughness. Botanical Sanctum and Lightning Helix help my burn matchup a lot more along with any other aggro matchup.
Geist of Saint Traft is so tiny. He hits hard but is too easy to invalidate by blockers, especially in modern. I am unhappy with Hooting Mandrills but I don't think geist is the solution. He's good in spirits because they can make him bigger, keep him alive with Selfless Spirit , or tempo with fliers so that it doesn't matter if he's blocked because you're dead next turn anyway.

This looks loads of fun, but you might be playing it at the wrong time. It's almost guaranteed that your opponent has graveyard hate, given decks which use; Stinkweed Imp , Bloodghast , Living End , Vengevine , Hooting Mandrills , Arclight Phoenix , Flamewake Phoenix , Bedlam Reveler , Striped Riverwinder and more all exist.
Rest in Peace and Leyline of the Void are the big hate cards, but Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , Tormod's Crypt or Ravenous Trap are all options people use too. Basically the graveyard is being hated on...
You might be better playing like the spirits aggro list with; Supreme Phantom Selfless Spirit and Spell Queller and switch to the Mortal Combat / Iname, Death Aspect plan from the sideboard, if you did that I'd also stick Nether Traitor in for either, free hits or removal bait. On its own Nether Traitor won't warrant the grave hate so hopefully your opponent sides it out. Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.
