Let me just add: Shivan Wumpus has never seen play in a deck at Competitive REL in any format. Idk why ... maybe it's because win-more cards are generally bad? Maybe it's because there are at least 25 other 4-drops that are demonstrably better in a Ponza deck?

Or maybe it's just because DragonKing90 hasn't had a chance to play it at Competitive REL yet ... ;-)

DragonKing90 & clayperce, I'm of two minds about Shivan Wumpus - I like it more than most people do, but its drawbacks are worth noting, including the fact that it dies to pretty much any removal there is and doesn't do anything upon coming into play, which would be a plus for this deck. I could definitely see including one in the deck as an option to fetch out with Primal Command, but that makes the chances of getting it in that opening draw that much less likely.

I have made significant changes tot he deck based on more research, sound advice and a very successful evening of play last night. Please check it out.

FWIW, I'm not a fan of Shivan Wumpus at all. Like you say, it's pretty amazing when we're ahead, but it's an absolutely horrible topdeck when we're behind on board. At that point, our opponents are more than happy to sac' a land and keep beating us to death ... happily knowing that our next draw is going to be just as bad as this one.

one card that i would highly recommend in ponza that i usually don't see, is Shivan Wumpus. with turn 1 Arbor Elf and turn 2 Utopia Sprawl, you can play Shivan Wumpus while still on turn 2.

Few possible suggestions:

Using the ability of the Avenger of Zendikar:

And since you have land recursion, you could even look into more things that require you to sac lands, or destroy everyone's lands!

Or maybe stuff to get lands back in your hand, but still ramp you at the same time?

you definitely need to add green. with turn 1 ramp you can start playing land destruction spells turn 2. a turn 1 Arbor Elf followed by Utopia Sprawl turn 2 will let you drop a Shivan Wumpus while STILL on turn 2. and then of course theres Beast Within that can destroy lands as well.

Sorry for the double post, but some not-so-good-but-funny options are cards like Akki Blizzard-Herder, Custody Battle, Hurloon Shaman, and Shivan Wumpus. That way you can say to your opponents: "well you chose to destroy your own lands".

Some other actually useful symmetrical options could be Destructive Flow, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Keldon Firebombers, Wildfire, or Wave of Vitriol.

Woodenshovel in modern, Carnage Tyrant helps a lot more than Terra Stomper

but if you add red you get access to Molten Rain, Stone Rain, Avalanche Riders, Goblin Dark-Dwellers, and Shivan Wumpus.
