Been running Naya when a friend pointed out that with Kalonian Hydra out i could replace my Legion Loyalist with Experiment One and my Ash Zealot with Gyre Sage and have a pretty nasty naya counters deck going on. I know jund (due to golgari) or bug (due to simic) would be the two popular choices.. but i didnt want to HAVE to rely on counters. I could still use my beaters like reckoner hellrider or smiter to kill. but my lower end cards can get bigger in the late game. I beleive that by adding white and red it makes the deck much more resilient. here is the decklist:
For rotation i'd replace hellrider with Rubblebelt Raiders and rancor with Savage Summoning. Summoning becomes really good not only because i can flash in an uncounterable creature, but it gives thing like burning tree or reckoner the ability to get +1/+1 counters that the hydra can double.
Let me know what you all think! I'd be interested in hearing some feedback.
P.s. dont know what i'd do about the buddy lands for rotation, but rumor is some sort of dual land is coming out.
