Banned in Modern, not necessarily for being overpowered or for showing up in all the decks, but because its specific land requirements wound up making most of the decks the same. Yes Tarmogoyf is overpowered and sees play everywhere, but that 'everywhere' is a wide range of different builds and play styles. Wild Nacatl fits into only one build, being just good enough at what it does to force all the Modern aggro decks into RedGreenWhite Naya "Zoo", killing all hope for aggro diversity, and ironically making a drawback with no conceivable upside the root cause of the card's ban.

I was thinking something like:
Turn 1: Temple Garden, this
Turn 2: Stomping Ground, Groundswell, Invigorate, Assault Strobe, swing for 22, opponent at 1 life

If you're really lucky and draw Revenge of the Hunted, you can play that instead of Groundswell and swing for 26 lethal

Finally back in Modern! Can't say I'm surprised, honestly.

this fancy catgirl is one of the best naya creatures, bar none. once you get your domain down, she becomes a one drop 3/3. thats insane. she is ALWAYS useful in naya, and maybe even bant as well.

I always think of the dual lands when I look at this card, like Sacred Foundry and Plateau (which I will - unfortunately - probably never own). That can make a turn two 3/3, which is certainly powerful, but for only one cmc is amazing.

In casual, often a 3/3 by T3, but not much more than that. Not too impressive.

The reason this is so good is that Ravnica Shocklands like Temple Garden have two basic land types, making it incredibly easy to swing for 3 on T2.

I think it's great for Wizards to promote disabled representation with this card. Wild Nacatl hasn't let the loss of her legs below the knees slow her down at all!

I think the modern ban was a bit excessive. In a format with path, bolt, smother, slaughter pact, threads, maelstrom pulse, etc. etc., if dealing with a 3/3 on turn 2 was too much for some people, that's their problem. I hope zoo will still do well; it needs to be a modern staple.

Wild Nacatl is sexy. Therefore, Ajani is bringing sexy back.

I like how they put this, Kird Ape, and Loam Lion all into the deck. Nice symmetry.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
