Lupine Prototype Discussion

lagotripha on Naya Zoo/Christmas Snow

I'm not sure about glacial/scrying sheets- Into the north is slow, scrying sheets takes you off of desperately needed coloured mana and glacial refills your hand, but can't pick up gas (most creatures non-snow), so Winding Way or Once Upon a Time might be stronger. They are great cards if you want to be midrange, but this is a zoo list.

Since your creatures mostly care about forests (sorry wild nacatyl), you might look at increasing the forest count and running more artifact fixing ( Springleaf Drum , Chromatic Sphere , Navigator's Compass , Paradise Mantle ), which would also let you pick up Shrapnel Blast to finish games. While I'm mentioning burn options, I have seen Tribal Flames in non budget versions of these lists- representing ten points of burn from flames/blast will win games.

There is also the option of trying to make your creatures mostly playable with green mana (like Sunblade Elf , Lupine Prototype or Soultether Golem ), then cast Lush Growth / Nylea's Presence or get a singleton Sacred Foundry off Flower / Flourish . This is a bit more fragile.

If you want to go harder into snow-matters, Boreal Druid and Coldsteel Heart offer ramp, while Frostwalk Bastion is a decent manland, but that will look more like a midrange value list (eventually becoming another Ice-Fang Coatl list, and less like zoo, and may call for dropping to two colours on a budget.

If you do want to move up in CMC, Knight of New Alara offers multicolour-matters synergy, while the Naya Hushblade cycle isn't awful.

Lupine Prototype may be great here. swap 2 smallpox for 2 lupines maybe. also look at Lightning Skelemental . it cost 3 and because your curve is so low you could easily swap with a 1 drop. cool deck

I remember this deck. I always thought Spark Elemental would make a good push for this deck. Rancor might be another good way to milk those dies triggers while still getting value out of it. If this deck is fast at emptying the hand you might find either Lupine Prototype or Rhonas's Last Stand helpful.

First of, I love this build. I have a soft spot for Depala and her awesome driving skills. I would suggest Lupine Prototype and/or Slumbering Dragon as they are excellent low drop racecar drivers.

You have several sub optimal card choices; Succumb to Temptation rather than Night's Whisper , Murder rather than Dismember , Victim of Night or the already mentioned Fatal Push which is premium removal.

There is a certain appeal to the Morbid keyword for this deck, be it Tragic Slip , Morkrut Banshee or Reaper from the Abyss as a backup plan. Speaking of a backup plan to the combo, maybe; Myr Superion or Lupine Prototype could work. I'd also want a board wipe like Bontu's Last Reckoning , Damnation , Languish or Ritual of Soot to clear away fast aggro or token strategies. Hope this is of help, good luck brewing your deck.

@Cyb3rguerrill0, Tree of Perdition and Death's Shadow would be pretty sweet in the build. Might consider adding in the Shadow over Lupine Prototype , as it is only in there as a cheap body to fling. Thanks for the response!

Is there a reason for the 2-2 fetchland split than just 4 Wooded Foothills? Also, do you get empty-handed enough for Lupine Prototype?

Suprek on The Gall Ta Play Artifacts in Green!

This deck looks amazing, great job brewing! I have a few suggestions if you don't mind:

Geode Golem: Since it has trample, it seems like a great way to cheat out Ghalta even earlier

Lupine Prototype: Very low cmc with really high power, and is an artifact creature.
