Idk this deck is just brutal... Gob guide rancor is such a beating.. You dump all these early drops and rancor them.. force out all their removal then go Confidant Confidant it's so unfair... Try it, it's fun.

1x elspeth - usually when i drop her i win the game, or if not, just gives me incredible reach
4x rancor - originally ran 3... but this card is just too sick. it's like having recurring 2 damage card in your hand all the time,.... hmmm... reminds me of something else..

what would you take out?

::shrug:: You got 4 mana dorks. I get flooded more often than not, in my testing, cuz i curve out at 3... so flooded is drawing a 4th land, lol. It's not slow if it's a one of. Getting to 4 isn't that hard with 4 dorks. The +3+3 flying is usually just really devastating, especially with exalted triggers and rancor... Im keeping her

Birds over Noble can't be right, if you have issues with the manabase that would require that you build your manabase wrong.

I'm also doubtful if Rancor does what the deck wants, because it don't gets any damage trough on its own. Especially in 5C Zoo it ssems worse than other options like Tribal Flames. It seems like a card that really hurts you when its bad, while it is a winmore card when its good.

the only black card in here is BOB...=/ BOB is hand advantage, the same thing alot of non-black spells could do for u anyway.

Obviously youve never played with rancor. It's so amazing. It's SHOCK, recurring. I always have a target for it, always.
