I might consider Ajani Unyielding in this deck, along with the aforementioned Huatli, Radiant Champion. His +2 ability can pull creatures and enchantments from your deck, so it pairs nicely with what your deck is trying to do.

Just wanted to pop in, give you some pointers i've learned from playing Naya dino midrange (my list is here:

Standard Kizmetto


You mention lacking card draw, may i suggest; Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Rishkar's Expertise and Ajani Unyielding perhaps. I see the bestiary is in your sideboard, but its pretty good main too, I dont run it by my other friend who is running a similar list swears by it. I've used the latter two in my builds but i dont seem to lack a hand. You could also go the enrage route and ping off your own Ripjaw Raptor with Forerunner of the Empire not only tutors for it or other saurs, but wipes the field of tokens and triggers enrage.

Happy Brewing!

Oh snap, Ajani Unyielding is a really good idea! I haven't looked at walkers in some time I forgot they sometimes get really good stuff printed on their -2 abilities.

Lock is a neat idea, but I dunno if I need it because once this deck hits surge I win. I do want to see the deck when you upload it though, I haven't seen many other surge decks.

Nice deck, great presentation.
I'm working on a Karametra Enchantress Surge myself with all permanents but the Primal Surge (I haven't uploaded the deck yet to Tapped Out). When I happen to draw the Surge I lock the game with Possessed Portal and Teferi's Puzzle Box and I protect them with Darksteel Forge.
I also run Ajani Unyielding because it feels it was made just for decks with this gimmick.

Fumigate also seems counterproductive. This deck doesn't struggle too much against Ramunap, with all the lifelinkers, and having it and Settle is just too many wraths.
Definitely Forsake the Worldly over Appetite, since it doesn't let them get their GPGs back with another refurbish.

I'm not sure about Skysoverign. No popular decks have that many fliers - Energy has Whirler to make thopters, but I don't think that sideboarding it in would be much advantage since you're killing a token. The only other popular flier is Glorybringer, but the ETB bolt doesn't kill it, so you have to leave it back to block and lose out on the attack trigger.
I don't think Huatli, Radiant Champion is as good as most people think. If you don't already have a board state then she does literally nothing, doesn't protect herself, and doesn't even get you into more real cards like Ajani Unyielding. Either way, the planeswalkers are probably better off in the sideboard.
Shyvana_, why is Initiate Companion in the SB? It probably would be better as 2 Cast Outs or an Ixalan's Binding and a Cast Out. Either that or some planeswalkers. Huatli, Radiant Champion, Ajani Unyielding, Gideon of the Trials, or Nissa, Vital Force.

Thanks for taking the time to give me suggestions, Kizmetto.

The following Creatures aren't Dinosaurs, so won't get a boost from Radiant Destiny, and don't provide a good enough benefit for me to play. Mostly because their Power or Toughness isn't as high as I need it to be:

This deck needs to be Creature heavy in order to cast Ghalta, Primal Hunger by Turn 5, and to hold on until Zetalpa, Primal Dawn hits the field, so the following spells aren't very useful:

I would have to remove certain cards to replace them with these, and the cards I already have give better value:

I already have the following cards either in the build, or in the Sideboard:

Shefet Dunes is an excellent suggestion. Adding that now.

oooh! I like this different approach. Would Ajani Unyielding have a place here perhaps, to serve as removal and a digger? Maybe 2 copies?

And Trapjaw Tyrant as a more utility dino to remove some potential threats, or any fliers perhaps since you can enrage it with Savage Stomp. oh oh and in that vein, maybe Shapers' Sanctuary since it looks like this is more defensive shell, or a few copies of Blossoming Defense might work here. OH and since you have turns to spare, perhaps Thaumatic Compass  Flip could be useful here, as a land fixer of sorts, but flips into a sort of Maze of Ith, which sounds useful to have here maybe.

Im looking at that Raptor Companion and i dont think it belongs here, why not Drover of the Mighty since it'll almost always be a 3/3 in this deck AND ramps a little?

Maybe some Cast Out Baffling End or Ixalan's Binding as some removal? I just noticed you're not running Savage Stomp instead of Settle the Wreckage and move that to the sideboard (Oh i just saw it in the Considered section, whoops.)

Kinjalli's Sunwing will slow them down and be a flier, which the deck is susceptible to but maybe thats not what you're looking for.

Looking outside of Ixalan block,What about Skysovereign, Consul Flagship ? Gives you some reach and some "burn" and can be crewed easily, also with a big toughness which is in theme. or is 5cmc is too high maybe Aethersphere Harvester which can give you a little bit of life? But also big toughness and flying!

perhaps 1 Uncage the Menagerie for some spice? ;)

Feral Prowler instead of Raptor Companion maybe a consideration.

and finally some copies of Shefet Dunes might be nice to have.

Sorry for so many suggestions, i just got excited thinking about this build and the avenues you could take with it! Best of luck!!

  1. Instead of Angel of Condemnation, Ambuscade and Nature's Way consider more Cast Outs or more Ixalan's Binding as removal. If you like having access to combat tricks, Blossoming Defense is the way to go as it can be a pump spell for the last two damage or to counteract a kill spell.
  2. Why use Cartouche of Strength? It seems as if you have too many fight effects. While green has poor removal such as those, white has some of the better removal in the aforementioned enchantments.
  3. Sunpetal Grove for mana fixing, and if you want to add some energy cards Aether Hub with Attune with Aether (though wait until the 15th for the B&R announcement, energy might be getting some bans) improve the fixing further. Attune can replace lands somewhat as well, instead of 24 with Attunes you can run 21ish.
  4. Filling out the sideboard to improve bad matchups is key to doing well. Crook of Condemnation for matchups against reanimation decks such as GPG, more Ixalan's Binding or Cast Outs, Gideon's Intervention to prevent Approach of the Second Sun from being cast, Authority of the Consuls for lifegain against Ramunap or other aggro decks, and depending on local meta a single Ajani Unyielding for bonus catwalker and also a powerful late game card.
