    I'm having a hell of a time making that zoo deck work.

    I just can't seem to make zoo work anymore now that Darkshire Councilman is gone. I put little guys out, those guys die easily, I lose. Repeat.

    Are there any typeless creatures in MTG? I can't think of any.

    also hey if art changes are a thing now can we finally correct Stampeding Kodo into an actual Kodo and not a Clefthoof :T

    or change the damn name to Stampeding Clefthoof that'd honestly be better at this point

    i mean look

    It could be that the clefthoof was raised by kodos and therefore identifies as one.

    Which might explain why it is so angry in these modern times.

    Mountain Giants becoming Elementals is a buff to Kibler's Elemental (hand-ish) mage list.

    Edit: Actually it's going to be stupid good. If you get the good book of specters turns and get an early Mountain Giant it can be a pain to get the Elemental train rolling again, this totally remedies that and makes your super strong early Mountain Giant plays even stronger.

    They should change Velen to a demon and then when they get lore corrected by fans they can say 'whoops, forgot the dranei origin again, sorry!'

    no, i'm not saying they should remove the beast tag from Arfus, i'm saying they should update his art in a similar way to Witchwood Grizzly

    I just don't know how you even start having the conversation about whether the Grizzly should be a beast or not

    I don't believe that there's someone out there who says to themselves "Gosh, I didn't realize that growling ghost bear would count as a Beast, this mistake has cost me the game!"

    It sounds like one of those conversations people have inside corporations that are completely removed from the actual reality of any user experience, like every change YouTube makes that it thinks will be good for viewers

    Nope, got my last event quest yesterday, a 60g/d one. I rerolled it to another 60g/d one. I then completed it and the 80g/d one I had left. Today was the day the event ended.

    Kibler's stream is pretty much 50% healing Zoo opponents.

    As I type this, he queues into another.

    I think that it's going to take over the meta. I wonder what the counter is.

    probably just killing their dudes

    You'd think that.

    I first encountered the deck while I was on my Recruit Warrior, and I ran out of removal. It survived a Brawl, a Warpath, two Bloodrazors, and Scourgelord Garrosh. In the end, I was throwing Devilsaurs at the other board to try to slow it down, and failing. Since I started playing it I went up against the likes of Big Spell Mage, Taunt Warrior, and Spell Hunter, all of which died horribly. Maybe the meta hasn't adjusted yet and people didn't mulligan appropriately, but they were absolute beatdowns. I think that I literally lost only one game between rank 9 and rank 5 on my EU profile, against an Even Warlock that Defiled my board on turn 3, dropped an activated Hooked Reaver on turn 4, and a Mountain Giant on turn 5. And I still almost won - there were a few turns where if I drew a Leeroy or a Void Ripper or a Spellbreaker I could have won.

    It can literally put 11 power on the board on turn 1. The God draw gives it a turn 3 lethal. The life gain of the deck means that it can basically tap every turn without putting itself in danger. The super-low mana curve makes it extremely consistent. It's a simply ridiculous deck. I honestly haven't felt this dirty playing an Aggro deck since I was plugging along on pre-Un'Goro Pirate Warrior at rank 17.

    Mulligan would definitely be a large part of it. If I queued into a Warlock I'd toss all my board clears and early removal to look for my own Mountains or something to remove Mountains.

    Also only one type per card. Arfus and Haunted Creeper tokens and such should be Undead + Beast.

    if i had to hazard a guess, they probably don't want to put in new tags until they're actually doing something with them. cause otherwise what's the point of a tribal if there's literally nothing that interacts with it?

    i mean, i agree with you, there should be more tribals, but at the same time, adding something for the sake of it doesn't really make sense. if at some point they add a card that plays off of giants then sure, shit yeah, add in that giant tag.

    but for now it kinda makes sense not to have them

    Well they can't add a new tribe now! They'd have to change the text on Nightmare Amalgam in 20 different languages, which will take hundreds of man hours.

    so there's two lines of thought that cross my mind for Amalgam

    either change the card text to read something like "this card counts as all tribals" or whatever. whatever HS equivalent of tribal since that's not actually part of the official HS lexicon

    or just remove the "All" tag and have it literally only be those listed on the card text nothing more nothing less

    cause either way that's gonna cause problems going forward, in terms of consistency. is it really "All" if it doesn't include future tribals? if it does, then what about the actual card text? if it doesn't, then why is it "All"?

    changing the card text and keeping "All" sounds like the better plan, but i also wouldn't be surprised if they just removed the "All" tag (or, uh, did nothing. they'll probably just do nothing).

    either way Amalgam's card text is like one of the most inelegant card texts in the game. like holy shit there's a million better ways to do that instead of what they chose to do. keep it simple, stupid!


    edit: shit dude yknow what i'd do, i'd literally remove the card text entirely and just keep the "All" tag. EASY. that's like the most straightforward shit in the world. can't be confused by that shit, BRODE. look at a card like that you see it's a vanilla 3 mana 3/4. okay sure. you see it has a tag that says "All". what's that mean, you ask? i don't understand, i am the confuse. i tell you, friend, listen. lissen. what do you think it means. you say, uh, all.... so.... everything???? i say yes, friend. you say even totems?? i lean in close and say my friend if a card has a tribal tag this card counts as it. you say, oh so it really is all. i say yes now you understand.
