    Please do, make this deck into the next "jund," the deck people see as good, and is popular for no real reason; but this one having a reason(//senses the breathe of the Jund players getting upset). And with it being on MTGO, you will face more people who play more seriously, as they are playing for tickets, and will be using more meta-decks.

    Yep. Thats the hope! I really think its a bit of a snowballing effect why its not played. I mean it doesnt have the best combo matchup... at all, lets be honest.

    Hey guys! visiting the zoo-train again - what do you think of the following list, winning a 28 person tournament. I guess the Tarmogoyf were Stormblood Berserker for budget reasons (interesting take though), but other than that it looks like a nice aggressive list with a straightforward sb-plan.
    I like the choices a lot!

    Hint: Only 59 cards - I guess one fetchland is missing.

    Its actually a really old list. Like, pre nacatl old. It makes sense it could win. Its got speed, and that can just blantently win sometimes.

    Part 1 of 2. Once I get the cards in, and practice a bit with the program I'll be doing a part 2, talking about what I bought, why I bought it, and what I can do, plus what kinda streams and future videos I'll be hosting.

    Yeah. White makes saving from wraths a lot better with boros charm. Bit gr still has the speed. You might conciter searing blood over burst. You got the mana for it. Anyways, yeah, vines rampager and molten rain to keep him off double red might be best:

    Late late tonight I'll be posting part one of my 0 to z00 video for everyone

    You can do land fall zoo. I used to use it back in the day when there was less removal. But here are some notes... and these are pretty manditory.

    1. You have to run lighting helix. You're running a fetch mana into untapped lands. Its a must.

    2. Run Boom//Bust. 3-4 boom busts, 4 flagstones. It helps you get more landfall out, wrecks your opponents. also your running fetches, so there is a cool thing you can do there. Target your fetch, the opponents land, then crack inresponce. You get a new land, theirs dies.

    3. -2 chandra +2 scapeshift. You could add a combo win in there, but even with out it, scapeshift is way better than her.

    How does Gruul beat Jund? I went 2-1 last night, winning against Storm and UWR Delver, but Jund completely killed me. The only game I won was when I topdecked a Lightning Bolt.

    Also, I think I'm going to subtract some Rancors and add some Vines of Vastwood to the mainboard. Too much removal in my meta.

    Vines are hot against removal filled junds/WUR. They can really dismantle counter game plans by being a step ahead of the removal. Whats your list again? Tarmogoyfs, 2 oozes, mutagenic growths, ghor-clan rampager vines, molten rain, those were always the keys to my success. Oh and path and chained to the rocks are good. Chained is a lot less good against G/B rock, because they run techs and ghost quarters

    I find this deck to have a great matchup against all the top tier decks. I have never lost a match to twin. I have lost a total of 2 matches to pod (1 kiki, 1 melira both top decked) i have lost once to affinity.

    If the deck is any good, why on any given week does it only 4-0 dailies once or twice at best. Most weeks it doesn't even show up.

    I think this deck is designed to beat little zoo decks, and to be honest those decks are just not out there.

    yet. give me a week ;p

    In all seriousness, its like a jund with a better aggro matchup and a worse combo matchup. and this meta is mostly combo.
