You might want to see Win with Self Mill.

It isn't modern legal, but I use Mana Severance, and then Undercity Informer to mill myself with 3 mana.

using Dread Return, Narcomoeba, and Lingering Souls, Laboratory Maniac gets onto the battlefield one way or another.

Lim-Dul's Vault is really helpful in my deck, and is probably one of my favorite tutors.

Memphismaymagic5 I feel you.

  1. My old version of this deck had 4X mainboard Lingering Souls, 8X mana dorks, and 3X Gavony Township. Souls was the hardest thing to move to the sideboard. Every time I played it the bad guy said, "ugh." That's my favorite! This will be one of those things to evaluate in play testing.

  2. Mana Tithe is an experiment and may end up going for Dryad Militant, Noble Hierarch, Lingering Souls, or Collective Brutality. It is my brother-in-laws idea. Duke Reid explains MTG as a combination of Chess and Poker. This is adding a little Poker into my deck. The hope is that sometime in game 1 I show it. The bad guy says, "What?! What kind of janky #@?! is that?" I smile. We go to game 2 and I quietly board it out. Now, according to my plan for the next two games every time he goes to curve out he hesitates "Should I play Goyf on turn 2? No. I need to wait until I have an open mana for that janky counter card!" We will see how it plays...

christ4like2l0ve thanks for your help with my deck!

  1. Don't speak ill of Lightning Bolt. God is listening.

  2. I've never played this deck so I'm honestly not sure. I'm gathering comments in preparation for Tuesday night Modern at the LGS. My old version of this deck had 8 mana dorks and it feels a little weird without them. You can read phdaemon's posts; we've been debating the same idea. If play testing is rough I can add in Noble Hierarch or if I don't need the ramp but miss the turn 1 play I might try Dryad Militant.

  3. My old version also had 4 MB Lingering Souls. This plus my dorks made Gavony Township a must include. This is the hardest thing I had moving to the sideboard. Every time I played it the bad guy said, "ugh." That's my favorite! This will be one of those things to evaluate in play testing.

phdaemon thanks for hanging in there with me in this conversation! I really appreciate the feedback.

  1. Yes, the thing this deck needs most is play testing. I will bust it out at the LGS Tuesday night and give a full report. I think we will be able to make some more well informed decision then.

  2. Collective Brutality looks like it deserves a MB slot. It does a lot and then I can SB it out for what I need once I see what I am up against. Great catch.

  3. My wife thanks you for showing me

  4. Thank you for the link to the primer!

  5. Midrange plays more creatures then people think. 14 creatures, 4 Lingering Souls, and 4 Planeswalkers is 22 persistent threats (the meta definition of a creature). Just thought I would throw that out there for my contribution to MTG thought leadership.

Memphismaymagic5 I'd be curious to hear how you like Rest in Peace. I used it before, it was hell on the bad guy, but it also was rough on my Kitchen Finks, Voice of Resurgence, and Lingering Souls. I ended up going to Relic of Progenitus and now am trying Scavenging Ooze.

Cool deck! Only thing I would change is Lingering Souls in the mainboard and Mana Tithe in the sideboard. Lingering Souls is such a useful card and I think you can even play it 4x mainboard.

As someone who played Zoo for a very long time, I love this deck. It is very reminiscent of the old "Big Zoo" deck I used to play some time ago. I love the creature beatdown strategy and I think Disruption such as discard is an excellent way to supplement that. I played Naya and Lightning Bolt was one of the main answers in our arsenal. I am starting to believe it better to never let the card see play.

Do you ever have issues casting anything with no ramp?

I would recommend some number of Lingering Souls be added to the mainboard. Maybe cutting down to three of some of the more expensive to cast cards.

This build looks really solid. I am impressed. It looks like it would be lots of fun to play. Way to really break the mold. I would love to see it in action.

So MB Lingering Souls, SB Thrun, the Last Troll, and cut... Loxodon Smiter? Man, these are tough choices!
