Kird Ape Discussion

StuccoHardly on Naya Pelt Zoo

EDIT- Have adjusted the sideboard a bit against burn, as well as cutting a Loxodon Smiter, a Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Tarmagoyf, and the main Qasali Pridemage in favor of 2 Kird Ape, another Experiment One and another Bloodbraid Elf. I'm thinking I could lose a single Path to Exile for a Lightning Helix and if need be, 3 cmc for 3 damage and 3 life gained might not be so bad... Gonna give it a run at fnm and then I'll be attempting my first SCG Open this weekend, so more updates to come I'm sure.

JKRice Thanks for the feedback!! I've been toying with this for a while and it's starting to take shape. I pulled the goyf in a UMA pack and felt like I needed to play it, but I see what you mean about the consistency. Maybe flip that for a helix? Also the Thalia, Heretic Cathar is fresh and untested, but the Thalia, Guardian of Thraben seemed to keep my creatures on board a lot longer and prevented a few combos last fnm... would it be worth it to run 1 each in side and main? The Smiter has helped me in so many matches that I'm afraid to pull it, but maybe I'll cut one to make room for another Experiment One, or possibly Kird Ape? Another Bloodbraid would maybe not be awful but it's not uncommon for me to not even get to 4 lands (not always to my detriment thankfully!) so I'm hesitant there also... but I'll be scoping out some helix's for sure!! Thanks again!

I think Kird Ape would be better then Skyshroud Ridgeback; It's a little weaker at the start but with a good mix of lands (that you have) you can swing turn 2 with a 2/3 just the same but it sticks around if you have to keep going after 2 swings.

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.
