Icbrgr on Naya Zoo/Christmas Snow

1 week ago

I think your comment on the whole is pretty on point lagotripha. This deck was originally just splashed snow effects/spells for the sake of having some perks using a budget mana base; and was a lot more midrange-like with having Higher CMC threats to ramp into.

Going harder into "snow-matters" is what got me here now and Im not sure this is where I wanna keep taking this deck. I put Glacial Revelation in here thinking it would act like Lead the Stampede ... but it doesnt... the snow creatures available arent really that great ( Boreal Druid seemed appealing though) and I opted for other snow permanents like Arcum's Astrolabe / On Thin Ice ... there not bad but they just arent performing well for what this deck needs to do.

I like your idea with the artifact mana fixing and the use of Domain/ Shrapnel Blast ... ill play with the list with that in mind thank you.

I was thinking about On Thin Ice before and decided to rule it out because I thought the Instant speed of Path to Exile would probably be more handy... but stuffing in additional snow permanents make the idea of having Glacial Revelation almost seem like a variation of Lead the Stampede /mass draw... might really be worth it ill look into those!

On Thin Ice , Collector Ouphe , Glacial Revelation and Arcum's Astrolabe .

Just thought that these cards would be good ideas.

My Flavor of the Month:

So I'm currently a little bit giddy over Naya Zoo. Its a deck that's been around for a long time/the inception of Modern (even prior) but until recently I have never taken the time to build with or play with the deck.

The shell of the deck is fairly affordable for anyone looking to break away from standard/Commander to dip their toes into the Modern format with some of the more expensive pieces like Tarmogoyf being fairly easy to find budget alternatives for; and because its an older deck there are tons of Primers and resources to help build the deck.

Im also finding there is an interesting amount of play/room for expression with a basic Naya Zoo shell as well and still have a deck that can hold its own at a typical FNM level of competition... I didn't have Goyf and I didn't have a mana base to support Knight of the Reliquary and opted for a budget mana base using snow lands/duals with Into the North / Skred alongside Path to Exile and I have been pretty satisfied with my games...might even entertain the idea of using On Thin Ice .

How about you?:

So how about you Tappedout? What Deck/decks have you grown to appreciate/enjoy and wanna Gush about and why?

There's not really much in the way of mana ramp for white outside Tron lands or Mox stuff, so I do suggest running a full set of Ballyrush Banneret . Typically, as tempting as 4+ CMC mono-white spells are, they're pretty much unplayable in Modern. Try to get your AVG CMC to 2 or less and only include maybe 4 spells at 4-5CMC, and those should preferably be creatures so you can take advantage of Ballyrush.

Great all-around mono-white spells: Brave the Elements , Path to Exile , Return to the Ranks / Immortal Servitude , Oblivion Ring / Journey to Nowhere , Oppressive Rays , Honor of the Pure , Thraben Inspector , Knight of the White Orchid .

Sideboard Spells: Leyline of Sanctity , Stony Silence , Runed Halo , Disenchant , Celestial Purge , Blessed Alliance , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality .

I'm not seeing any reason to run Snow-Covered Plains. On Thin Ice would take advantage of them.

Since lands are colorless, you'll want to run the best lands you can afford, which usually means the fastest lands you can afford. Budget 3 color is difficult because the lands that are consistently the fastest also cost the most. A really handy resource for finding lands is All the lands in a sorted list. Just make sure what you find is use modern-legal. Typically, Scry lands like Temple of Silence are fairly affordable with a decent ability, but land prices vary depending on what colors they produce, so sometimes pain lands like Caves of Koilos or check lands like Dragonskull Summit are better priced. Another thing to consider regarding lands: either On Thin Ice or Chained to the Rocks - either could work with your colors, and both are powerful tools for only 1CMC. For example if Chained to Rocks were included, the best lands might be battle lands like Smoldering Marsh (because they have dual basic land types, ie: Swamp Mountain)

I also suggest Deflecting Palm in the sideboard - both as a defensive and offensive tool.

I'm not sure what your goals are here, but right now, you could add "Budget" to the decks hubs, which will increase the visibility a bit.

If you swap your basics for Snow-Covered, On Thin Ice might be better than Path.
