I just looked at the Golgari cycle: Golgari Guildmage, Korozda Guildmage, and Swarm Guildmage. Looking at them I feel they support your original point that the Guildmages have weakened over time with this most recent Guildmage being the weakest in the pseudo-cycle.

I found one by happenstance just now. The new Plaguecrafter from Guilds.
"Plaguecrafter can be the creature its controller sacrifices for its own ability. Don’t be like Plaguecrafter; always wear personal protective equipment when performing dangerous work."
Somebody making these rulings has a good sense of humor!

One thing we can look at exploiting is Zacama, Primal Calamity's high CMC. Unless your opponent is somehow cheating him out, they've got to have nine mana. You can go two ways with that, land destruction (not my forte) or cheap removal.
With Black in both of your existing decks, a few cheap removal cards could quickly make Zacama much too expensive for repeated castings e.g. Go for the Throat. A couple more interesting Black options are Deathgrip for some serious Green hate and the always unexpected Withering Boon.
In Mairsil, Blue gives you access to the best answer of all: counterspells. While the argument is overused that counters are the answer to everything, I think this is a case where they are a very good option to consider.

I think it would be best if you tried retooling your current decks to fit the new threat instead of creating a new deck designed specifically to counter Zacama. Silver-bullet decks usually hose one opponent only to lose to another. What are you currently running when you play against him?

SynergyBuild: Unfortunately, everything is politicized here in the United States lately. There is no such thing as non-political in the current climate. It seeps into all aspects of American life: media, education, and even Magic.

It's pretty good in casual, creature-based strategies; however, its not going to see the play of something like Cultivate or even Rampant Growth just due to its attacking requirement. Add in the relatively high supply and that's a recipe for a couple dollar or so price ceiling unless a serious deck archetype picks it up and runs with it.
