i had a intresting thought recently wat if you tryed to made a sort a domain zoo for t2 and i came up with the following :

Domain Zoo :

// Lands
3 [RAV] Sacred Foundry
3 [GP] Stomping Ground
3 [RAV] Temple Garden
1 [GP] Godless Shrine
1 [DIS] Hallowed Fountain
4 [TSP] Flagstones of Trokair
2 [OV] Plains
2 [MI] Forest (1)
1 [OD] Mountain (2)

// Creatures
3 [RAV] Watchwolf
3 [B] Savannah Lions
4 [RAV] Boros Swiftblade
3 [FUT] Tarmogoyf
3 [BD] Kird Ape
2 [CS] Jotun Grunt

// Spells
4 [RAV] Lightning Helix
4 [NE] Seal of Fire
4 [TSP] Might of Old Krosa
4 [TSB] Tribal Flames
1 [RAV] Moldervine Cloak
1 [PLC] Brute Force
4 [FUT] Edge of Autumn

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [FUT] Riftsweeper
SB: 4 [GP] Giant Solifuge
SB: 4 [B] Stone Rain
SB: 4 [GP] Leyline of the Void

ok i have only done 1 real testing sesion with this deck but it seems realy powerfull . the 14-1 testing sesion indicated to me that the deck was pretty damm powerfull oh and befor evry1 starts ranting about he prob dint testvs good decks well i did i faced 3x dralnu 1times dredge 2 dragonstorm and 3 gruul and a couple of other random decksmy only loss was to dragonstorm witch is basicly a race

now ill explain some of my choises that vary from your normal zoo list

1 : boros swiftblade: this thing is insane he regularly swings for 8+damage doulble stikes a bitch

2 : tarmogoyf :thanx to the edge of autum+flagstones combo hes often a 4/5 on turn 3

3 : jotun grunt : a 4/4 for 2mana that hoses dredge and controll alikei know hes kinda conflicting with thetarmogoyf thats why theire is only 2

4 : tribal flames : its almost always 4 damage for 2 mana in this deck

5 : might of old krosa : pumps theevrything but playing this on swiftblade turn 3 is absolutely ridiculous

4: brute force see above

6:seal of fire : 1 mana 2 damage helps tarmogoyf

7 : edge of autumm : this makes your deck essentialy 56 cards and with flagstone it smooths your mana perfectly

cards im not running and why

1: char : i take enough pain from my lands i dont want to auto lose to gruul besides tribalflames is better in this deck

2 : demonfire : i want to win before turn 5 and im only runnig 20 lands

3: call of the herd i really wanted to fit this into thedeck but i just dint have room
4: the gruul brothers bruning tree and rumbeling slum: way to clunky in the curent inviroment

any constuctive input is welcome

worst manabase ever.
If u came up with this yourself consider netdecking.
Ur stretching into 5 basic land types just for the tribal flames, basically fucking urself in so many games cuz ur land won 't come out right. For one card, that is far from a game winner.
U run only 3 watchwolfs
Why the hell run a basic mountain? Seems like a great blood moon game plan.
Leyline of the void while u can't suport it, use crypt.
This is not extended. THe deck works there cuz of the fetchlands.
Boros swiftblade dies to about any removal as well.
I have to addmit tho, edge of autumn in an aggro deck is tech

Here is the list that I have been working on... I really had the same though as you.

I like to draw a lot of cards and I find that Bob and Perilous Research are good in the deck... One of the main issues with the deck is Dragonstorm so I added 3 Azorius Guildmage to help with that matchup. So if he is on the board you can't get Giga'ed out of the game. Also I moved the land search to Flagstones/Perilous Research. Perilous Research is also great vs targeted creature removal spells Lightning Helix and Seize the Soul. Not that Seize the Soul does much vs this build anyway. I would build this if I could afford the mana base!

If you're going to make a domain (4-5 color) zoo, you should be playing 100% definitely be playing Remand.

There was a pretty cool version on brainburst of 4c zoo with tribal flames a couple of days ago.
