Arlinn Kord Discussion
1 day ago
Alright i'll give our decks a test run! I'll post it on your deck when im done.
I cannot agree more, these Savage Stomps are amazing, I too want to find room for 1 more in my list, just tweaking stages now.
Sideboard talk tho, its so hard to predict, and i guess it iwll always change based on our own personal metas but i think its a good call to not run Solemnity since you do have a bit of a counter theme going on with the +1/+1s, the planeswalkers (is that something solemnity stops?) and the energy production. And to hose one strat feels a bit bad, its why i dropped Ashes of the Abhorrent to a 1 of.
These dino decks can recover so quickly!! So long as you dont completely commit to the board i think, we're good. Also casting that Carnage Tyrant really provokes a board wipe anyway if the opponent is able heheh. Im glad you're still tweaking too and sharing your thoughts!

I see a few cards in your list that will rotate out when Ixalan rotates in. Cinder Glade and Game Trail rotate out, so you will probably want to switch them out with Sheltered Thicket and Rootbound Crag. Aim High is also rotating out, Gift of Strength might be a suitable replacement. Avacyn's Judgment also leaves, so you could replace it with Shock since it domes your opponent the same. Arlinn Kord is going to be hard to replace, but maybe Samut, the Tested would work.
I like the deck, but I think a few of your cards are working against your burn theme.I don't think you'll be able to flip Growing Rites of Itlimoc with only 9 creatures in your deck, and Makeshift Munitions doesn't have enough creatures/artifacts to consistently be of use, and even when you have it and creatures, you lose out on damage by sacrificing your creatures. I think adding in Rampaging Ferocidon and filling out your Ranging Raptors would be a better use of those 6 slots. And while Bonded Horncrest seems good as a 5/5 for 4, Ripjaw Raptor will probably be of more use to your deck.

Xenagos, God of Revels is in my gruul dragons deck, and he's quite amazing, letting you swing in very powerfully with say, your Dragonlord Atarka the turn you drop her. I'm surprised that Atarka, World Render isn't in the list, as she lets you hit even harder with your dragons.
I know this might sound strange, but I run 2 Arlinn Kord in my dragon deck, as her front side +1 give utility. Vigilance and haste again allows for you to swing your big meaty dragons the turn you play them, while still being able to retain their defensive capabilities.
Domri Rade is also very good for getting your creatures, as removal, and as buffing the hell out of your creatures with his emblem.
I see you have one Sarkhan in your deck, but why not the Gruul Sarkhan Vol? Once more, another way to let your dragons swing the turn they come out.
I don't know if you could tell, but I'm a sucker for Gruul walkers.
Thank you for reading my comment and considering my suggestions. Have a good day.

You make solid points. Yet as a male I would argue women can be relatable as well for either gender as a male character can be for either gender. I say this because for the longest time I related with Sarkhan Vol with a mutual love for dragons, but then the Innistrad Block presented Werewolves which transform. I fell in love with them because Werewolves are my favorite movies, comics, books, and video games.
So I held onto hope for some planeswalkers which would support Werewolves and we gained Arlinn Kord. Because of my love for werewolf lore and creatures. I honestly relate with her the most now...sorry Sarkhan.
Plus it may just be me but I feel one who enjoys the game of Magic the Gathering should have favorites or cards they personally enjoy the most regardless of how old they are. I say this based on my mutual passion for DC Comics. When they introduced Batgirl, my joy for Bateman never decreased.
I will round this response out by going back to what you pointed about you bringing up good points because it is how you feel. Though I will personal state I do not feel WotC is alienating men by introducing more women characters.

Domri Rade would work as a planeswalker with this deck as well, but you would need to have Raging Ravine or any other card that adds red as well as green to your playing field. Same can be said for Arlinn Kord Flip

Yo, Samut, the Tested would be super cool. Giving plated crusher doublestrike would be OP. Now that you suggest it tho, do you think Arlinn Kord Flip would be better cause she could give a creature haste? I'll have to test it, but if i got a plated crusher out turn 3, then Samut would make more sense on turn 4 than giving haste with arlinn to something that doesn't need haste. I'll swap bane with samut and see what happens. Thanks again for suggestion!

Thank you so much Monduck I definitely agree on the Chandra, Torch of Defiance I cut the Arlinn Kord and one Ob Nixilis Reignited to make room. Fixed up the mana base a bit as well as i found there were not enough basics for Attune with Aether and Nissa's Renewal and i was wondering if I should cut some other cards for more deserts to really get full use out of Hour of Promise
