I also mainboard 4x Thrashing Brontodon although i'm not sure that is correct. Ensnaring Bridge is running around in a lot of decks. I realized if you are budget then unfortunately Once Upon a Time is not feasible which is ok. I don't think it makes the deck much better. I use Birds of Paradise as another mainboard Ensnaring Bridge hate card with Aspect of Hydra . Also 3 Yorvo seems kinda sketch. I think balloth can be an upgrade to yorvo in some cases as well. Treetop Village seems bad mainboard. You need your mana in the early turns and it will be too small late game to do a ton. I don't use Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for the same reason.

I'd be tempted to go with more than 1 Ghalta in a deck like this (probably 2). I'd also be tempted to add Hardened Scales, although I don't think it's really needed, heh. One thing I definitely would add to the deck, though, is at least 1 Nylea, God of the Hunt . That card is so great for making sure all your beaters get through.

Right now I'm just working on porting my modern mono-green stompy list over to pioneer (Mono-Green Stompy (Pioneer)), and my biggest issue is the loss of Rancor :(... That deck is too low to the ground to consider Nylea, but once I build a slightly higher curve version (like this one) I'll most likely have 1 Nylea in the 75 (probably the 60).

Also, this site needs to fix Aspect of Hydra . Keeps sayin' it's not Pioneer legal, lol.

It will really depend on how much cheap removal is floating around in the new meta. In Modern, I ran this deck with the same 12 spells (just with Vines of Vastwood in place of Blossoming Defense ) and it wasn't often that I would whiff on a CoCo. Without Lightning Bolt and likely less Fatal Push , Pioneer already looks more friendly towards this sort of deck, so I might be able to trim down on the Blossoming Defense and Aspect of Hydra totals if that's the case.

Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl Wild Beastmaster will only ever give your creatures +1/+1 unless you get Aspect of Hydra .

I personally really like Deathmist Raptor . I use it in conjunction with Eldritch Evolution to get Gigantosaurus out. But I also have Den Protector in my deck to recur the Raptor.

Also, Aspect of Hydra is a cheap staple in mono-G devotion style decks.

jesmister: Aspect of Hydra is certainly worse when you find yourself facing off against decks playing large amounts of instant speed removal, but if your meta is not heavy with these types of decks, it has incredible potential. In general it is a way to give a creature anywhere from +3+3 (weak) to +6+6 (ridiculously strong). Also, the decks that play large amounts of instant speed removal can suffer at the hands of Prowling Serpopard , making it a worthy addition in fighting control style decks. As far as Wistful Selkie goes, it simply lacks the stats to help close out games the way the three drops played in most mono green stompy lists a

I've never been a fan of Aspect of Hydra and I do think Prowling Serpopard is insane for this deck.

Mono green stompy is competitive (in some metas). Aspect of Hydra or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx etc. Similarly, there are a bunch of ramp decks that look to play 4/5 drops, with Leyline of Abundance offering a lot to that.

Carnage Tyrant is a solid anti-control card. Deathmist Raptor is likely consigned to weird morph/cloudshift/reanimator brews. Imperiosaur is the most solid of the modern dinos- and underwhelming. Territorial Allosaurus is flat better and still not great. Runic Armasaur or shaper's sanctuary might be sideboard-worthy.

I could see a Wayward Swordtooth/Ranging Raptors setup existing, but I doubt it would be budget by any means.
