Atla Palani, Nest Tender

I would include cards like Nesting Dragon , Dragon Egg and Roc Egg so you can get some triggers without the tokens she makes. Changeling cards will work as well.

Worldspine Wurm is good unrelated but there is a combo with Ashnod's Altar and Runed Stalactite That will let you just go through you your entire deck of creatures till you get the one you want. Then if possible use a card like Faith's Reward or Brought Back to get some creatures you sacrificed that turn while you were cycling through your deck.

Curious what your thoughts on the new card Atla Palani, Nest Tender are. Does she have a place in a dino tribal deck?

Atla Palani, Nest Tender

5 cmc for a polymorph on a stick in naya colors. No haste, cheesy combo requires 3 cards with weak quality outside combo usage. Not for cEDH.

Elsha of the Infinite

5 cmc for bad Future Sight . Too expensive for a card advantage engine when Tymna is available, another pass for cEDH.

Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero

"Egg" commander that suffers due to singleton nature of the format and color restrictions. Not enough card density to run an actual egg build, maybe potential with future egg prints.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth

Possible Doomsday builds, but the lack of good pile crackers means your best bet is a Chromatic Star on turn 1. If you want to DD just play Grenzo.

Anje Falkenrath

Serious potential here. As stated above, reanimator to win with B/R tutors and using free cycles on madness cards to run an effectively 70 card deck.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept

Potential combo lines are shot in the foot by having to pay the hard cost for the creatures. Doesn't generate tutor or card advantage from the command zone. Pass

Dockside Extortionist

This card is money. It will have a similar effect to Smothering Tithe in cEDH, strong card value on its own for decks that can slot it, a nightmare with effects that can milk it for value. Coming to a Godo deck near you!

Thanks bushido_man96 and lifemtg.

Mayael the Anima was included as an homage to my original deck and I thought she might be a decent back up plan if Atla Palani, Nest Tender was shut down. However, I agree that her activation cost is probably too costly, and I haven't built the deck with enough 5+ power creatures to make her hit consistently.

Call of the Wild is an interesting card, but I think it runs into consistency issues without the addition of more top deck manipulation. Plus I've been noticing with some early testing that I don't need much more than Atla to get things going.

I'd love to add Sylvan Library into the deck, but alas, I only own one copy and that is already being put to use in my Lord Windgrace deck.

Evolutionary Leap and High Market are definitely solid suggestions that I'll have to consider for this deck. Right now I think I'll replace Mayael with one of Selfless Spirit , Riftsweeper , or Remorseful Cleric . They are all good early creatures with powerful utility abilities.

Defense of the Heart is something else that I am considering since I own a copy and it can go find the 2 raptors, or Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Archetype of Endurance .

Ok so if you're interested in building Dino's, there are plenty of good options! Gishath, Sun's Avatar is probably your best bet, but if you're looking for a more combo based route Atla Palani, Nest Tender also works out well.

As for the +1/+1 counter deck, it depends on what the colors are.

It even works out perfectly as an opening hand.

Opening hand: Forest, Mountains, Plains, Llanowar Elves , Sol Ring , Ashnod's Altar , Thornbite Staff and Concordant Crossroads as the first card drawn.

T1: Forest, Concordant Crossroads

T2: Draw a Forest, play the Plains, Sol Ring , Llanowar Elves , tap the ring and the elf for Ashnod's Altar

T3: Draw a Mountain, play the Mountain, use the Sol Ring to cast Thornbite Staff , use the lands and Llanowar Elves to cast Atla Palani, Nest Tender from your command zone, sacrifice the elf to Ashnod's Altar , use the to activate Atla, then rinse and repeat and get out every creature card in your deck.

So I heard you like fast games? Here's how you play your entire library in a single turn. You need three cards to set this up: Your General and two artifacts.

Here's what you do:

  • Play Atla
  • Equip Thornbite Staff
  • Pay and create an Egg
  • Sac Egg to Ashnod's Altar
  • Bring creature into play from library
  • Float
  • Atla untaps thanks to Thornbite Staff
  • Spend to create another Egg
  • Repeat until you have played every single creature in your deck

Happy brewing <3

Atla Palani, Nest Tender would be a thematic include. Not sure you need the card advantage but all the Enrage stuff would guarantee eggs breaking. Certainly a potential side-grade.
