Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. I don't think adding Woodfall Primus and Greater Good will help to bring consistency. It's adding more CMC which is what you should cut from your deck not add.

Primus has potential as high end creature with an aristocrat theme with Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat , but you're not playing that theme. Melira, Sylvok Outcast can prevent -1/-1 counter from stopping persist thus you can loop Primus with a sac outlet destroying all your opponents noncreature permanents. Adding an aristocrat to this loop makes it infinite life loss for opponents.

There's also an infinite persist combo that Protean Hulk can tutor for: Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Lesser Masticore + Disciple of the Vault + Viscera Seer . This combo is looping Masticore with Seer resulting in infinite life loss of opponents from Disciple since Masticore is an artifact.

You have part of a game winning combo that Hulk can tutor for already Mikaeus and Seer. Adding Walking Ballista who's CMC is 0 finishes the combo by doing infinite damage to your opponents with Ballista. Cards that can reanimate and sac Hulk are powerful especially at instant speed: Necromancy , Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead and Footsteps of the Goryo .

I love playing more "static" cards like the one looks like Marilyn Manson, Ondu Cleric and Zulaport Cutthroat and a lot of bounce. And for budget playing i love Cryptolith Rite but with your version of deck may be bad because better attack. For now i don't have ally deck but you inspired me to make one :)

I like the idea of a quasi- Zulaport Cutthroat in the Command zone..

Ayara synergizes with the passive token generators used in the classic Contamination -lock ( Bitterblossom , Dreadhorde Invasion , Ophiomancer , etc.), even if you don’t run the dreaded Contamination itself..

Also, I see your Greaves, but a pair of Swiftfoot Boots is usually a good idea too..

Lastly, although the strategy of my deck is ultimately different, you should consider some of the Undying synergies in my deck (Undying Phyrexian Aristocracy) for some inspiration..

Of the X creature spells in Modern, Stonecoil Serpent fits this deck's strategy the best since it has relevant abilities and recurs as an artifact. I don't really want to be playing 0 CMC creatures just for death triggers.

There are other/cheaper drain effects, but they all have downsides that make them less relevant in this strategy than Falkenrath Noble (it has > 1 toughness, flying, and drains when any creature dies):

  • As you mentioned, 1 toughness creatures like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat don't work.
  • Vindictive Vampire doesn't have flying and only drains when our creatures die.
  • Cruel Celebrant requires a white splash, only drains when our creatures die, and its mana cost isn't improved with Heartless Summoning . This deck could be modified to be BW or BG, but I refuse to pay ridiculous money for fetch lands, so I stick to mono-colored builds.
  • I'm thinking Bontu the Glorified may be the best option since it drains, provides a sac outlet, and can be a difficult to deal with threat.

I've looked at Fecundity lists, but most of them are GR token aggro lists.

Here are some suggestions:

I hope that this hepled you, and I want to mention that I'm heppy to see Wasitora with her cat-dragons in at least one deck :)

Alright so a few suggestions I would make for this deck:

Get some more mana rocks and mana fixing into this deck it will help your games be more consistent and you can get some really cheap rocks that aren't as efficient but will still help you a lot.

Manalith , Talisman of Dominance , Mind Stone , Evolving Wilds .

I am not a huge fan of Wight of Precinct Six I dislike cards that rely so much on other player's graveyards if I am not actively milling them.

I would recommend getting some removal in this deck to help you protect yourself better and maybe disrupt your opponents plans. You have murder which works well, maybe throw in a Bone Splinters ?

Additionally this depends on how much you want to play aristocrat or swing wide. But if you are working toward killing zombies to bring down your opponent maybe a Zulaport Cutthroat or a Falkenrath Noble would help?

Anyway, I hope these suggestions help and enjoy your deck. It looks fun!

I would also recommend some targeted removal if you can get them.
