Quick Hit: Premier IQ Spotlighting

Share Button

I was looking through the StarCity Games Premier Invitational Qualifier decklists from the Richmond Open and I came across a Zoo list played by Jeff Szablak to an eighth-place finish that looks really interesting to me.

The reason I want to bring this deck up is because it uses Collected Company as a powerful card advantage engine that adds directly to the board. This is definitely something I want to test out because it looks like a blast to play. I love the use of hatebears in the sideboard like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and I’m curious to try some other cards like Aven Mindcensor, Gaddock Teeg, or even something like Magus of the Moon to try to attack people off of Collected Company.

As a Zoo enthusiast, I just wanted to bring this build to everyone’s attention. I plan on trying out Collective Company Zoo in some of my next few local Modern events. I’ll let you know how it goes!

I am a competitive Magic player located in Philadelphia. I specialize in the Modern format and play aggressive strategies for the most part in constructed. In limited I have an affinity for awful tempo decks and the durdliest control decks (RIP FKK Sultai Control). I hope through my writing I can help us all improve as people and as players in the Magic community.
