Do people play decks based around Figure of Destiny ? Is it a real, viable deck in modern? If so, what is the usual decklist?

It'd be a Boros or Zoo/Big Zoo kind of deck.

They don't build deck around Figure of Destiny , but decks like Boros or Zoo use it as part of their strategy.

I've used Figure of Destiny to mild success with Ranger of Eos and Proclamation of Rebirth , but generally Modern is too fast for FoD to be very good. Don't count on him ever being larger than 4/4.

Figure of Destiny is a playable card in Modern. That, in itself, is a very high honor for a Kithkin.

Definitely usable in modern... though not necessarily a staple. cards without as much required input such as Kird Ape , Loam Lion and Tarmogoyf tend to be higher on the priority list for modern deckbuilders
