Edit: Removed Sin Prodder and replaced with Vithian Stinger. Reason: Vithian Stinger is a more reliable way to get Rakdos, Lord of Riots out. Also, I don't like my opponents being able to just send my big guys to my graveyard. Even if it does a bunch of damage to them, my creatures will be more effective if they actually hit the battlefield, especially since I'm not running any reanimation spells.

The problem with the new Gaea's Blessing breakfast hulk combo is that the package moves at instant speed so they can just do everything in response to the damage tigger. Plus they don't have to fetch Viscera Seer (you can use the damage trigger to kill Narcomoeba) so you can get Grand Abolisher. But other than that situation, it craps on traditional breakfast hulk, yes.

Your other option could be the inclusion of a ping creature. There are four that are worth mention:

  1. Cunning Sparkmage - Fairly basic but has haste, so he can do his thing the turn he drops.

  2. Gelectrode - No haste but is a powerhouse and does work with Curiosity/Keen Sense.

  3. Vithian Stinger - No haste but can be unearthed on combo turn, giving him more resilience.

  4. Izzet Staticaster - doesn't double as a combo piece but is a house as far as killing off dorks.

I'm not sure if they're good enough for the deck, however they feel anti-meta since there is such a reliance on aman dorks and in general 1 toughness creatures. And the fact that other than Staticaster, they can all be coupled with Keen Sense/Curiosity for CA and with Dramatic Scepter to act as a win condition.

i'd say remove:4x Veinfire Borderpost2x Vithian Stinger1x Mountain1x Swamp2x Hellfire Mongrel

also, Lightning Bolt is a staple in modern, I'd definitely run 4 if you can, removing 3x Deathbringer Thoctar and 1x Howling Mine

good luck!

So we have confirmed both Basilisk Collar and Vithian Stinger, so does this mean we could have a pingers sub-archetype? They don't seem to really be great with the archetypes, other than Stinger kills tokens and Collar makes tokens not uselss
