Well, it isn't a traditional Zoo card, but Voltaic Brawler deserves a mention. If you want to go that way, you can find a lot of budget zoo primers in this and other sites.

Ahahah, i know, i feel the same about Rigging Runner!

Yes, thanks. To be fair, i would play it over Goblin Arsonist which i don't like as much as Mogg Fanatic. But i understand its different utility, so i won't say that the Arsonist is an inferior or wrong choice. :)

A nice deck for Familiar's Ruse is Faeries, because it has a lot of cheap creatures with EtB effects like Spellstutter Sprite.

Hi, my friend! I'm building something similar and i was considering Rigging Runner as a one drop with upsides. Have you tried it?

Hello guys, thanks for the video and decklist! I have some questions about the deck for you:

1) have you playtested the list? If yes, at the kitchen table or at an FNM's level?

2) isn't Golgari Charm better than Wrap in Vigor in the sideboard or the in its cost makes it too hard too cast reliably?

3) desn't Decimator of the Provinces risk to become akward more time than not? It gives a good Craterhoof Behemoth impression, but in a deck without Elvish Archdruid or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx we need to tap out with all our lands and mana dorks, thus reducing or even negating its anthem effect. Am i wrong? That said, it is still a 7/7 hasty trampler: nothing to scoff at.

GUYS! GUYS! It's been months since i started my lovestory with Smuggler's Copter and i just realized how good it can be here!It can be cheated into play with the Architect or hardcast, unlike Wurmcoil Engine and its budget replacement. It is not as much backbreaking, but its ability to filter your draws is really useful and provides sort of card advantage.

Hello, my friend! I started playing modern with a very similar deck, the main difference being 4x Grand Architect in the maindeck over Adaptive Automaton. I used to play big artifact (budget) creatures like Steel Hellkite with GA's help, but nowaday i feel that Smuggler's Copter would fit in very nicely. It is a fast, flying clock and can be cheated into play with GA or be hardcast because it's cheap. Crewing it is also rarely a problem and its ability is useful to filter and smooth your draw.

Hello, my friend. First i have to say that this is not a particularly good moment for tempo strategies like Delver. I say so because i read in your thread that you want to change your deck in order to win more. Anyway, FNM isn't the world Championship and if you like it, go for it.

Now, talking about the deck, part of its success is traditionally due to the low land count combined with the high density of cantrips. Cantrips help you hitting your land drop in the early game and make you find action in the mid-game. So, i would cut your lands to nineteen (some player opts for eighteen, but i am dubious) in order to play the full four of Serum Visions and Opt/Thought Scour. In your build Opt is probably better because you have no graveyard synergy. For example, this is my Bicolour Delver - Izzet Delver and i use TS to fuel big stuff like Cryptic Serpent/Bedlam Reveler/Enigma Drake/Bloodwater Entity.

As somebody else suggested, Chart A Course is a bomb and almost always a "pay two, draw two" spell: try it.

I am also wondering if Monastery Swiftspear is still worth four slots in a world of turn two Thought-Knot Seer...

I like this no-lord build a lot, great job!

I must ask: what do you think about Rigging Runner? It fits your deck being a Goblin which costs just with upsides, but i had the impression that Raid countersynergizes with FSD.

Hey, Thundermaw, thanks for your comment! Onestly, i haven't really thought about other five CMC creatures. Demigod of Revenge is what i usually play in that spot and it happens to synergize well with Pack Rat, which i love. Also, reading this primer (http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/deck-creation-modern/601240-blitzkrieg-b-r-control-shock-and-awesome) i got the impression that a single Demigod is still a solid wincon as a sort of flying Reality Smasher even when it doesn't bring back another one of its kind. Considering other similar creatures (big, hasty and evasive) my thoughts are:

-Thundermaw Hellkite is usually similar to the Demigod, better against Tokens (which isn't very played atm), but always without discard synergy.

-Charging Monstrosaur is an inferior version imho, but it's a nice budget alternative.

-Stormbreath Dragon, again, it's usually like the Demigod, better against control/white decks.

-Glorybringer is an unknown, but i like it and its ability, while less relevant than it is in standard, still kills everything up to Thought-Knot Seer.

So, why do you value Thundermaw that high compared to the Demigod?
