Charging Monstrosaur Discussion

W4W4 on $25 red ramp sorta rush

1 week ago

I took a similar version of this deck (adding 2x Verix Bladewing and 2x Lathliss, Dragon Queen while removing 2x Captain Lannery Storm and 2x draw cards) to my local FNM and finished 2-2. It's a fun deck and being able to swing with Charging Monstrosaur or Skizzik on turn 3 always caught my opponents by surprise.

That being said, there were times I felt I needed more burn, more draw power, or more mana.

  1. For wide/aggro decks, I think I will need to have Shock and Fiery Cannonade side-boarded. This extra burn can help keep the field clean until turn 5-6 when I have more large creatures summoned.

  2. I am too cheap to buy Risk Factor and used 2x Tormenting Voice instead. Probably not as good, but it works well enough. I will run 3-4x Tormenting Voice in the future.

  3. I was using 22 lands which was admittedly too low. 23-24 lands seem to be a necessity for this deck.

The other problem I encountered involved Goblin Instigator. I understand his synergy with Skirk Prospector, but it felt I was more often playing Goblin Instigator for two 1/1 blockers, rather than a mana source. Because it only matches with one other card in the deck, I may remove Goblin Instigator entirely.

Thanks for the great deck idea!

Depending on how you picture your goblins... I have a lot of fun with vehicles.

I can really see a screaming goblinn behind the wheel of an Ovalchase Dragster and goblins-in-tanks is not only funny but a Mobile Garrison gives you an extra untap with Krenko. I'm thinking about downgrading my Goblin deck a bit to add pet dinosaurs as well. If Krenko is dead nobody is worried when I play goblin, pass turn, goblin, pass turn, Charging Monstrosaur AAAAAAAARGH!

I would recommend, if you want to keep green, use it more for ramp than you are atm. I would also recomend replacing Slash of Talons with Lightning Bolt, Crested Herdcaller with Regisaur Alpha, Two Huatli's Snubhorn with Temple Altisaur's, Everdawn Champion with Atzocan Seer, balance the land a little more, maybe some Dual Shots and Ranging Raptors for ramp and enrage triggers, maybe one Ravenous Daggertooth instead of an Imperial Ceratops so you can get enrage lifegain earlier, it's also more of an earlier bait target for removal which will benefit you. Also Regrowth, Destructive Revelry for your sideboard. Otherwise removing green, adding in more red like Silverclad Ferocidons, Raptor Hatchling and Charging Monstrosaur and the white and red Ixalan Avatars, if you cut out the green you could also lean into more of the lifegain aspect with some give lifelink spells on your fliers then you can chump block small boys with either face or enrage dinos.

I would suggest cutting some of the one offs and focusing on a few key dinos. Frenzied Raptor might be a good cut, along with Raptor Companion and Orazca Frillback. I also noticed a lack of ramp, if you are going to go very agro, especially with big threats like Colossal Dreadmaw and Charging Monstrosaur you are going to want to bring those down ahead of the curve. Grow from the Ashes would be a great addition.

if you want to pursue the idea of a more dino-based zacama, a few cards you might want to try are Charging Monstrosaur, Bellowing Aegisaur, Cherished Hatchling, Etali, Primal Storm, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Goring Ceratops , Kinjalli's Sunwing, Polyraptor, Raging Swordtooth, Regisaur Alpha, Temple Altisaur, Wakening Sun's Avatar, and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn. I didn't actually check how expensive these are but i assume they're not too hard on the wallet (?)

So as a heads up, I don't really keep up on standard but i will give suggestions that I think fit your theme and combo nicely with ideas you already have. I also don't know your budget so I'm just gonna put whatever cards I think fit the bill.

  • I would drop Captain Lannery Storm and Hallar, the Firefletcher. You have no other way of creating treasure tokens and only 3 total spells with kicker costs and nothing else that gives +1/+1 counters, so these 2 just don't do much. I would add in 2 copies of Combat Celebrant, the extra attack phases can be very helpful and it combos with Grand Warlord Radha for big mana gains for your 2nd main phase
  • I'm not a big fan of Charging Monstrosaur or Skizzik. Your mana curve tops out at 5, so you want those 5cmc creatures to do a little more to win you the game. Maybe run 2 Carnage Tyrant. It's 6cmc, but it's gonna do some damage and with it being uncounterable and having hexproof, it's worth the extra mana to cast. For cheaper big hitters money wise, Neheb, the Eternal is a solid card and will net you mana from all the damage you deal. Overall, you got a great start from what I see, I really like it. Keep up the good work.

One thing I think you need to think about when building a mono-red deck is will your cards be good when top-decked late game with a clear board? Bonded Horncrest and Frenzied Raptor aren't. If I were you, I would replace them with 4 copies of Charging Monstrosaur. It's a great late game finisher and good budget replacement for glorybringer.

Also, I would sideboard those scavenger grounds, and add in either more mountains or Sunscorched Deserts.Same thing for abrade. Shock is always useful?

Last thing, my favorite mono-red combo that I use in my standard RDW deck is Hijack + Fling. No one ever expects the fling.

Lame_Duck on Multiple "when attacks" triggers

No. When they attack, both abilities will trigger at the same time and you need to choose legal targets for them as you put them on the stack. The Tilonalli's Skinshifter ability won't have resolved yet and it'll still be a Human Shaman, so the only legal target for the Majestic Heliopterus' ability will be the Charging Monstrosaur.
