Thanks for all of the support you guys!!!! To answer some of the questions above - --Ingot Chewer should have been 4 in the SB instead of the Destructive Revelry.... my bad. --Narnam Renegade could work instead of Kird Ape, assuming we can hit the fetches consistently. --Adding black to the deck would work as well! I'm finishing up a video on an updated 4C version of the deck. It's VERRRRRY GOOD!!!!

Keep the feedback coming! :D

I really like the article. Landfall is great, but it is too dangerous. Playing lands is something you naturally do. Rewarding you for just playing the game normally has always been the most dangerous mechanic, since it can easily sour the experience.

For example, you do not see too many cards that say "whenever you draw a card" or at least not many powerful cards that reward you for drawing a card. Rewarding you for something you would do anyways has no opportunity cost - you do not give up anything to draw a card for the turn.

The same is with landfall - if you have a lot of cards with the landfall mechanic, you will not plan on skipping your land. You will play slightly more lands than normal and run a few Evolving Wilds and Orzhov Basilica to ensure you play a land every turn. But this is not really a cost - you are not giving up any deck functionallity to play such cards, except some CIPT lands.

That is why you do not see cards with large landfall bonuses. Cards that are competitively costed like Plated Geopede or Steppe Lynx have small effects, essentially becoming Kird Ape with a land.

Cards that have significant effects like Omnath, Locus of Rage and its swoll tokens are costed non-competitively at 7 mana.

Now that you mention Tireless Tracker I will mention that I hate it when wizards brings back old mechanics and keyword actions, only to not use them on cards. Why does TT not have landfall on it?

This is a pretty interesting idea! Have you thought about Kird Ape? It's a baby cat but is still solid pressure with a little bit of a but! I might try 3 if you can find some room! I like it better then guide in this build. Also how does 4 path and 4 mana leak feel?

You could probably squeeze it into some kind of zoo deck with Burning-Tree Emissary, Reckless Bushwhacker, Kird Ape, and Wild Nacatl for that price if you really tried. Zoo used to be very good so this seems like a solid place to start.

Quantuman69 Yes, I think you're right about shock/fetch being better together. I did think one advantage of including Stomping Ground alone would be to have in unison with Kird Ape (i.e., T1 2/3). I agree that the focus here is creatures, so maybe, as you suggest, I will focus the investment in the creatures rather than the manabase, at least at this stage.

I'd get a playset of Stomping grounds so you have the potential of turning on Kird Ape and Flinthoof Boar asap. If you can afford them, a playset of Wooded Foothills is great for deck thinning.

I'd round out the Boars to a playset, pick up some Experiment Ones, add a few Rancor, and Bloodbraid Elf for value.

Catalog9000 thanks for your suggestions! I'm currently on the fence about boarding Death's Shadow as I do have the possibility of leaving myself open to burn from shock lands but I'm thinking the most important part of sideboarding is figuring out the right spells like Boros Charm from what I can and maybe some one drops like Kird Ape or Loam Lions
