Nevinyrral's Disk out for Harambe.

Depending on your side of the argument you could include Goblin Sharpshooter to have a greater chance of saving the kids life or Stun Sniper to add more risk to the kid but save the ape's life. Up to you.

But seriously, where was the kids Mother of Runes at the time? Lock her up in a Monkey Cage.

Ok that's all I got for now.

Some options to consider to fit the monkey theme: Monkey Cage - Starts with M and can make many Ape tokens. Zodiac Monkey - Has Monkey in title. Name Dropping- can use ""gotcha" to get back cards from graveyard with Moneky in title. Urza's Hot Tub - can tutor for your favorite monkey. Pack's Disdain - for removal. Riptide Replicator or Volrath's Laboratory - make monkey tokens. Urza's Incubator - monkeys/apes cost 2 less.

These don't start with M and technically are Apes but there aren't many "monkey" cards. Uktabi Kong, Uktabi Orangutan, Gorilla Berserkers, Gorilla Chieftain, Hidden Gibbons, Treetop Village, Side to Side. You can also try Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, Door of Destinies or Obelisk of Urd for a Monkey / Ape "Anthem effects". Belbe's Portal to cheat monkeys into play.

Good luck with your monkey deck

I have draco to blow up the table with Monkey Cage. Or dump my hand except for him and discard him with Pyromancy for a 3 mana 16-point+ zot.

Also adding Daretti soon and with him can sac any artifact to get draco onto the field. with or without Monkey Cage, that's pretty beefy.

That... that's a lot of comments :P

Maybe working in Descent of the Dragons or Monkey Cage might help?

I would second the suggestion of Firecat Blitz.
