Xipe Tuatec, Hope of Sun Empire

Legendary Artifact Creature - Egg

When Xipe Tuatec, Hope of Sun Empire dies, search your library for a Dinosaur creature and put it onto the battlefield.

Whenever a Dinosaur you control dies, return Xipe Tuatec, Hope of Sun Empire from the graveyard to the battlefield.

, , Sacrifice Xipe Tuatec, Hope of Sun Empire: Dinosaurs you control gain haste, trample, and indestructible until end of turn.


Inspired by Atla Palani, Nest Tender. The third ability works to make the dinosaur you search for gain haste, to be clear, as the death trigger would resolve first, as the sacrifice is part of the cost of the ability, making the Dinosaur enter the battlefield first.

I'd like a better version of Sevinne, the Chronoclasm

Sounds like a job for Insurrection.

It also kinda looks like you're trying to build a combo deck, what with the Congregation at Dawn and specific 3 creatures you want out, in which case Genesis Wave, Genesis Hydra, Lurking Predators, Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, See the Unwritten, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, Aid from the Cowl, Warp World, Divergent Transformations, Indomitable Creativity, Reality Scramble, and Genesis Storm are your options for cheating out multiple creatures off the top of your deck. You'd then want to shore up your tutors (not having blue hurts here, but black is king) to be able to consistently grab Congregation at Dawn.

The other option (or perhaps in addition to) is to go reanimator. Buried Alive+Balthor the Defiled, Champion of Stray Souls, All Hallow's Eve, Immortal Servitude, Pyrrhic Revival, or Rise of the Dark Realms.

Tutors can serve each plan equally, and it keeps the deck from doing the same thing every time, which is good for casual play. Also, if you throw in Footbottom Feast, Gravepurge, Forever Young, and/or Bone Harvest, Buried Alive interacts with Genesis Wave and friends.

Why no auras like Hyena Umbra or Spider Umbra to buff and protect Atla Palani, Nest Tender? Maybe not playable at instant speed. But cheap and effective to protect in combination with the X=0 triggers from Mirror Entity. Not only the +1/+1 protection but also the Totem Armor is nice.

Knightblood on Wait, Dinosaurs Cost Mana?

Have you considered Atla Palani, Nest Tender? I know that she is neither a Dino nor Dino adjacent, but she can get more Dinosaurs out for free, and the eggs hatching into Dinos gives her flavor points.

Hey, you're welcome :)

What's the max budget you have to make card upgrades? When you finish making upgrades what price range can you have for total deck cost? The precon for example at $60 is low and I would hope you could afford at least $50 for upgrades. If you can afford more expensive price cards then my card suggestions will be different then if you can't. Smothering Tithe and Birds of Paradise for example are very good cards for ramp, but they might be too expensive for the budget.

What advice about upgrades would you like?

Some cards from the precon that can be cut since they're not as good as others or don't have good enough synergy with Ghired:

Sometimes this deck just goes off. Won two 3-player games today (vs Atla Palani, Nest Tender and Tasigur, the Golden Fang) in 25 minutes.

First game was fueled by turn 1 Exploration, followed by Nissa's Pilgrimage, Titania, Protector of Argoth and Fortitude.

Second game was turn 1 Sol Ring, turn 2 Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, turn 3 Skyshroud Claim and Oracle of Mul Daya, and before anybody could do anything I ultimated Freyalise, played Hornet Queen and followed up with Craterhoof Behemoth.

Green Rawr!! before any coherent defense could be mustered. Nuts.

I considered Thousand-Year Elixir and have Aurelia, the Warleader, but I ended up not going with the Elixir because it only benefited Atla Palani, Nest Tender and I cut it for another beefy monster space. I didn't think about Patron of the Orochi. It fits the theme and looks like a phenomenal addition. :)
