Seems super solid. Dungrove Elder is really nutty in these Mono-Green Aggro decks. It can easily be a 5/5 for three and carries Rancor really well. Large stupid stuff, i.e. Khalni Hydra and Primalcrux are just too slow. Seems like a solid decklist!
Seems interesting. Definitely worth a try at the kitchen table. I think a pair of Rancor would be prefect in here.
Thanks btw :) I completely forgot about Terra Stomper , having the 6 mana 8/8 will be nice, and having some Rancor s or another mana elf to replace those stupid Vineweft s would be awesome. There aren't really any other 1 mana (good) green cards.
at least one set of creatures which are safe against Lightning Bolt ... your damn right! Jotun Grunt ? with a land base like 19 lands i cant really afford to play 3 CMC creatures with out hurting my Curve...
It normally goes T1 Wild Nacatl , or Experiment One , or Kird Ape , (rarely want to play Goblin Guide T1) Lands T1 I'm always fetching a Stomping Ground .T2 Goblin Guide and Rancor .. or just Burning-Tree Emissary into Flinthoof Boar , or a combination of both... Lands T2 I'm always fetching a Temple Garden (Rarely fetch up Sacred Foundry ).T3 another two drop and 1 drop or flint hoof boar with haste... some times i play games where i never see 3land... but i dont mind because it means I am just drawing really aggressive cards...
I play Mutagenic Growth in hopes to play it in response to Lightning bolts. It saves all my 2 and 3 toughness creatures.
Rancor does wonders for an infect deck, since it doesn't matter if your infect creatures die, and you can just use that Rancor on the next attacker. Dig the deck for being fairly budget for a Modern deck. Upvote from me!
I also want to point out that Wes Hovanec's list from GP Boston was pretty horrible. BUG Infect is very poorly positioned right now, as Plague Stinger is actually worse than both Viridian Corrupter and Ichorclaw Myr in the format right now, as almost every deck has a flyer anyway. Sideboarding Iok with four Gitaxian Probe in the maindeck seems pretty silly to me, as taking one out for the other is pretty worthless when you could just have the discard spell in the maindeck anyway. No Mutagenic Growth , Wild Defiance or Distortion Strike in the maindeck is pretty bad, and having Rancor is fine but worse in the format right now and is also bad against Affinity and Junk.
The other list is pretty solid, and I'm thinking of maindecking some number of Viridian Corrupter while still having Ichorclaw Myr because I find it to be very hard to block. The sideboard is exactly Tom Ross' sideboard from an article a little while ago, and I've switched that around to include cards I think are better. I may play more Spell Pierce in the future.
To Help your matchup vs control make sure to use Boros Charm . I would also recommend fitting in Woolly Thoctar over Scavenging Ooze and maybe as I don't see a whole lot of ways for you to reliably fill the grave and that will give you some staying power vs. Anger of the Gods . If you are going to run 4 Rancor I would switch out Mutagenic Growth for 2 more lands that tap for white to maybe give you more reach and prevent mana screwing and once you do that maybe you can consider more creatures like Loam Lion that use a white mana base. Things like Lingering Souls and Spellskite are just things your going to have to accept to be against with that deck. Overall though i like your deck it is a nice change up from the meta and with a few tweaks i could see it doing well in FNM.
