Wild Nacatl is Back in Legacy Naya Zoo!


Legacy Naya Zoo by Byvci



Do you miss Naya Zoo? The old days of when Wild Nacatl was so good it needed to be banned in Modern? Well, they may have a revival soon in 2022 thanks to Byvci, who got Top 4 in Saturday’s Legacy Challenge with Naya Zoo!

The aggression on Goblin Guide and Eidolon of the Great Revel is paired with the prison elements of Esper Sentinel, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Wasteland. It also has some excellent interaction pieces like Lightning Bolt, Prismatic Ending and Swords to Plowshares.

This deck really looks like a Modern deck, except without Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, which is banned in Legacy, and the addition of Once Upon a Time (banned in Modern) and Wasteland.

The mana base is also kind of crazy and worth highlighting. There’s 13 fetches and only five duals to get. The deck doesn’t really need that many lands, so it loves to deck thin here, plus by splashing that Wild Nacatl, you really want your mana base to be perfectly fixed every game!

I love the three Kataki, War’s Wage in the sideboard. In a world of Kappa Cannoneer and Mono-Blue Affinity, you really need to come prepared to hose those artifact decks!
