Icbrgr on Zoo: Is Obosh, the Preypiercer …

3 weeks ago

Is Obosh, the Preypiercer worth it/viable in Drop focused Zoo Decks?

Been looking through my old decks and found the core to my zoo deck and was looking to see how I could make it more Up-to-Date now that things like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Collector Ouphe exist now.

Obosh, the Preypiercer caught my attention for seemingly HUGE payoff but im wondering if it is actually castable in Zoo... I dont have a whole lot of expirience with running or even interacting with companions... but paying to get it into hand then paying the nesessary doenst seem reachable. I know things like Utopia Sprawl and Arbor Elf can help but I have concerns that it would hurt more than help the hyper=agressive strategy.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this matter?

wallisface I guess i was with the GB Frog that plays with Heartless Summoning in mind i played some time but now its look to go to another line. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen in that list i have like more then 5 land drops per turn, was fun. Ramp decks was never my style, but i want something new hehe.

Now .. i like Titania, Protector of Argoth idea, oh yea. Arboreal Grazer looks good cause blocks that stupid monkey, and Arbor Elf + Utopia makes a good now rampage

No love on Willow Geist?

i'm not sure how you can say ramp made the deck slower unless you were just using really bad ramp. 30 lands makes you drastically more likely to mana flood, and thats what will make the deck slower is when you're not casting spells because you're drawing lands. instead of relying on normal land drops for 5 turns, you should play ramp in the early turns so you can play your bigger spells on turn 3 or 4. good examples of ramp include things like Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. in fact a turn 1 Arbor Elf followed by a turn 2 Utopia Sprawl will still leave you with 4 additional mana on turn 2. also, you NEED removal if you deck cannot win on or before turn 4, which yours can't.

Champion of Lambholt is a good example of a really slow card in this deck. it's meant to be played in decks that can drop multiple creatures in a single turn, or even better from a single spell such as Spectral Procession. tapping out for a 1/1 on turn 3 is not what you want to be doing in modern. modern is a format where Karn Liberated can hit the field turn 3. Primeval Titan could be attacking you with haste turn 3. they could cascade into Living End turn 3 and then wipe you out turn 4.

Winding Constrictor would be an upgrade over Corpsejack Menace in this deck. Hardened Scales would be even better still.

Well, as far as I can see, you don't really rely on landfall too much here, and instead want the extra land plays to ramp or sac for value.

To me, Arbor Elf or Sakura-Tribe Scout would fit better than Arboreal Grazer in the list, but I do agree a few more 1 drops that get you closer to the lategame would be nice, along with a higher land count.

you don't really have enough mana for your high-cost spells. a good rule of thumb i use is you can use 20 lands if your mana curve tops at 3, 24 if it tops at 4, and if you have spells that cost 5+ then you want 24 lands plus some mana ramp. this can be something like Arbor Elf or Rampant Growth as a couple examples, but of course it depends on which format you're playing.

removal is crucial if the deck can't win by turn 4, but unfortunately this is somewhat difficult in just red/green. cheap burn spells don't deal enough damage to kill big creatures, and green spells are basically limited to the "fight" mechanic such as Pit Fight. outside of that your best bet is to just ramp up to bigger creatures than the opponent can.

you can use mtg arena to get some practice games online to get a feel for the game. the primary format there is standard.

if budget is a concern when playing in paper, ask your friends/playgroup if they could make some pauper decks for when you join them. pauper is a format that allows any card from mtg's history that has been printed at common rarity at least once.

I'd consider running more elves that tap for mana and have low cmc. Arbor Elf, Devoted Druid, Boreal Druid, Circle of Dreams Druid, and Wirewood Channeler standout. You should also look into more card draw with Guardian Project and Beast Whisperer to help you start storming off. Also ways to untapped your mana elves so you can keep the train rolling and take absurdly long turns. Love elves they're my favorite tribe so im here for it. I've got an elf deck that performs pretty well if you wanna check it out on my page

Hi, nice deck! As you use basic forests and Squirrel Nest you could exchange some of the mana elves for Arbor Elf to get more tokens from the nest...

Balinor5 that is a really great observation! I did intentionally keep the deck colorless as a core theme, but this is the first time I've considered using green due to how explosive that value is-- it simply can't be understated, using Arbor Elf to untap for value would be a fast (and better) way to pull this off.

I would most definitely be a player to use Ancient Stirrings, Once Upon a Time, and the pivotal Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. So, I tip my hat for the suggestion for sure.

Another player in my group runs mono G tron-post, and we've been incredible rivals for many years; this deck is kind of a "anything you can do, I can do better... without colors." But all in good fun. I appreciate your feedback and I'm going to consider using green in the future! And maybe just a thought.. Yavimaya Hollow?
