ToxicMCTV on Land Destruction - $40 Budget Build

i understand you're trying to do budget but lands like Stomping Ground are powerful especially with cards that you have like Kird Ape

Icbrgr on Dryad of the Ilysian Grove ...

Another thought that just came to me would maybe be Naya Zoo? Particularly the 1-drop variations using Wild Nacatl , Kird Ape , and Loam Lion with Rancor .

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove might be a nice body and help grow the zoo and perhaps putting in Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle could be easy late game Lightning Bolt to go upstairs/the opponent to finish off that last bit of needed damage?

@abbatromebone Your very first sentence kinda says it all for me right now... I'm supposed to be "Turbofog" and the aggro matchup is supposed to be easy/what my deck is made to beat and currently Im playtesting against Naya Zoo (small zoo with Kird Ape / Loam Lion / Wild Nacatl & Rancor ) and it's far from an easy win...the deck gets me under 8 life by T4 pretty consistently and as soon I "stabilize" the combat damage they go upstairs with Lightning Bolt /similar and close out the game before i can usually..... grrrrrrr!

I need to firm up my deck in general I think and then revisit this sideboard talk..... really starting to see the importance of Negate / Dispel ... starting to think maybe that should just be mainboarded.

Kird Ape ... kinda lame at a glance.. until you realize that T1 Stomping Ground results in a 2/3 for 1cmc.

Have you considered ramp? I believe this could help: Wild Growth with other art style, Pillar of Origins , Myriad Landscape , and maybe Rhonas's Monument .

Soul's Majesty or Colossal Majesty may help to draw more if you judge it necessary. And if you like the draw idea, this may enhance it Summit Apes .

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 .

Also, one Gorilla Titan and a few Hooting Mandrills forms a good team.

Why 3x Grunn, the Lonely King when you can use some variety, like Ancient Silverback ?

I dont know if you would like to mix apes with equipments, like with O-Naginata , or high tech things like Infiltration Lens , and Skullclamp . It would be nice and funny.

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.

Love the tribal theme!

Of course, there are some great tribal and gruul lands you can add, but then it starts getting expensive. I would consider tagging this as a "budget deck"; imo, budget tribal (espically more obsecure creature types) are the best! Really forces for some creative deck building.

I would check out your mana base and decide if Gruul Turf is a really needed. Personally, i'm not a big fan of these cards due to the risk/slow speed, but if you like them, play them!!

I did a few playtests and it plays a bit slower than expected. I would certainly recommend adding a 4th Kird Ape . Are you open to adding mana accelleration? I'm sure there are a few solid ones that won't be too far outside of theme. Oh, have you considered using an Emerald Medallion ?! Monkeys like to steal shiny things!! I think it would create a lot of value. Urza lands would work nice, but I feel it may be too far from the theme.

I think Alpha Status is a "win more" card in this sorta mana heavy/bigger critter deck, where by the time you play it to have value (e.g. 3 or more creatures on the board, for +4/+4), it may be too late or not as rewarding. Now that I look at some of the oracle wording, some apes are now considered a monkey, so they won't help each other out... boo.

For Monkey Cage , maybe cut 1 because I think you will need a lot of mana to guarantee it to give you value e.g. a creature with mana cost 3 or greater.

Man... I so many ideas!

How about Summit Apes !! Those with your Gorilla Berserkers with first strike and/or lure equipment. Viridian Claw , Nemesis Mask <--maybe too slow?? Spells, Roar of Challenge or Declare Dominance <--bonus gorilla art!!

If you go with the Emerald Medallion , maybe swap out Ravenous Baboons for a bigger green one?

Play around with it and I'll check back!

I would also cut Colossal Might for Collision / Colossus is it's just the same card but with an extra option.

I would cut Shock for Lightning Bolt for obvious reasons.

I would cut Domri Rade for Domri, Anarch of Bolas , not because it's better, per se, but because it supports aggro much better. Old Domri asks for the game to get relatively long, Anarch just wants you to smash face.

I would also like to see some more 1-drops in an aggro deck. I suggest Kird Ape .
