Carnage Tyrant Discussion

I'm not the biggest standard player, but a couple things I can see is that Golgari tend to want to use the graveyard to the fullest extent. Cards you may be missing here are Stitcher's Supplier to help get things into the graveyard, Glowspore Shaman (which can help you get a land back), and more I'm sure. Cards that aren't in here that you should consider is Carnage Tyrant, Molderhulk, Lotleth Giant, and potentially Underrealm Lich. These are powerful creatures that can help you accomplish many things you deck wants to do. Carnage Tyrant is also EXTREMELY hard to deal with in standard.

First off, take out the Gateway lands with some Swamps and Forests to add in 4 Overgrown Tombs and 4 Woodland Cemeterys as this will help your color fixing. That is if you want to stay . You could just go Mono- and go beatdown seeing as you're already playing Nullhide Ferox and Steel Leaf Champion.

Second, if you have the time and a computer (my laptop hasn't had any problems) you could download Magic: Arena (its free at the moment as it is in open beta) to try and start your deck and playtest it there for free before taking it to a tournament. Since the next set is about to be released in January, this will be a good way for you to learn some of the rules and find cards for your decks before buying them.

Find a way to get Dinosaur Hunter (or any creature with deathtouch) first strike and it will be a Carnage Tyrant killing bada**, and you won't take trample damage!

CrimsonKing so I did have 2 Settle the Wreckage in the sideboard, but found that there was almost no matchup that I want to bring them in. My original thought was that it would be good against Izzet Pheonix, but between Seal Away, Vraska's Contempt, Profane Procession  Flip and even Thaumatic Compass  Flip, the only problem that I have against them are their sideboard cards (Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Firemind's Research, Ral, Izzet Viceroy and sometimes Sarkhan, Fireblood) and I usually leave Settle in the sideboard. Even against aggro decks I tend to not need Settle with all the maindeck removal/sweepers. I haven't played against a Carnage Tyrant deck yet and I will definitely try to find room for 2 Cleansing Nova in the sideboard, but right now my worst matchup that I absolutely need to improve is Jeskai.

Ty for your Feedback Ouroboros_47, appreciate it. The Reason why I run is Carnage Tyrant, he is one of the best options against control, being uncounterable and hexproof. He is also out of reach of all the mass removals, except Cleansing Nova and Phyrexian Scriptures. And of course a The Eldest Reborn hits him too,... But in this Deck you don’t usually cast him on T6 with no open mana, and there are a few counterspells in the Deck, to protect him. Vraska, Relic Seeker is a nice removal/wincon too, so the greensplash makes sense. Whisperer and Dreameater are good cards for sure, but not resilient enough against control/Midrange builds. Lava coil is great, but sorcery speed, and i really don’t want to add red, would force me to play niv mizzet explosion, ionize, drakes and stuff, I want to build something off the popular lists,... finally Bolas,... yes he is a body with fine ETB ability, his planeswalker side is great, but resilience is the problem with him too, since my 4 Teferis are a must Bolas would force me to play 5 Colors,... It may well be, that I go for other colors, will keep your suggestions in mind!

You should add atleast a Settle the Wreckage or some other answer for Carnage Tyrant,The Eldest Reborn isn't good enough. Good deck Chromie homie.

If a Dinosaur Hunter blocks a Carnage Tyrant does it succeed in destroying the Tyrant?

What would you think about switching out the green for red? This would let you play Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Lava Coil, and maybe Deafening Clarion. If you take out the green you could swap Carnage Tyrant for Doom Whisperer or Dream Eater. Also a The Eldest Reborn in the mainboard might be nice.

I'm curious how this is doing at FNM for you. I run Golgari Midrange but this looks more fun, and since my current "cards missing" are Carnage Tyrant and some additional Vraska's Contempt, this is a very achievable option to shoot toward if it is performing well.
