Bxbx : Very useful inputs, thanks a lot :D You are absolutely right, i am going with the enrage theme and hopefully we will get a big load of new dinos with enrage in January when we return to Ixalan :)

Shaman en-Kor: Seems to have potential, but i am a bit concerned that it wont stay on board long enough before its removed or has given any use, with the number of enrage dinosaurs yet. But will definetely get a place on my maybeboard and be playtested.

Breath of Darigaaz: Also a possibility, but i kinda prefer Tremor & Volcanic Spray myself.

Warstorm Surge: Will definetly find my old copy in my box, didnt even consider it being able to trigger enrage :)

Fungusaur: I decided to switch it out with Rite of Passage, for me it seems like an enchantment that gives the exact same ability to every dinosaur is better, and it costs less and harder to remove :)

Desert & Arena : How did i not think of Desert? Its an easy enrage enabler, once they are strong enough, sadly its in the end of combat, but still a good utility land. Arena

I agree with cutting Dinosaur Stampede was actually an add from looking up most used cards for this deck from EDHREC.com :) I think you are right with the Haste enablers, its not really needed when it is Gishath job to put dinosaurs in when attackers have already been declared. So Samut, Voice of Dissent might get kicked out as well.

Mayael's Aria is really a card most would kick out, but for some reason i want to keep it in, even though in my own testing with a 80 card build it has never been useful. so it might get the kick soon, sadly :p.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, you Rock Bxbx

Hi,

if you're going for the enrage-theme I can recommend Shaman en-Kor to you. It lets you redirect any damage that is dealt to creatures to another creature you control. And the best part is that it splits the damage in several instances of one damage each. Credits go to TheDeckMaker2300 for mentioning this card on another deck page!

Another card would be Breath of Darigaaz because you can either use it as a simple enrage-trigger or as a medium-scale boardwipe.

Warstorm Surge lets you kill the opponents' creatures but also trigger your own creatures' enrage.

By the way, you missed the first dinosaur to be printed with a semi-enrage-ability: Fungusaur. It got an erratum to be a dinosaur just like Magmasaur who is a good enrage-enabler.

Last but not least, you can add Desert and/or Arena for enabling enrage.

You culd cut Dinosaur Stampede (maybe not strong enough for EDH), Mayael's Aria (unrelated to the deck theme), Fires of Yavimaya (I consider giving all creatures haste to be rather unimportant in this deck. you already have Regisaur Alpha and Otepec Huntmaster. maybe add Xenagos, God of Revels as well). Some of the smaller dinosaurs could also be cut as you are playing more as enough dinosaurs, but I know that this is really tough :(

That's all for now. I hope my comment will be useful.

Oh, and I'll link my own version so you can check it out:

Bxbx I really like Mercadia's Downfall in commander. Everyone has so many nonbasic lands, it's almost guaranteed to be a massive number when Gishath swings.

Pyrohemia is a card I have and believe it has been included in my updated list. I will be updating this afternoon (time permitting of course) to have the current deck list as it sits. Great minds ping alike. Desert is a nice ability as well. Not only is it good for enrage, but it's a good card that can be used multiple times throughout the game and against opponents when needed. Very versatile.

I believe I had Urza's Incubator on my list before but can't really remember why I removed it. Probably had to do with the fact I had Oketra's Monument and it did similar things. I will add to the maybe board anyways just because it should be tested.

I don't beleve I have ever seen Selvala's Stampede. That is one nifty card and I do believe I will look into getting a copy for this deck. It could definitely help cheat the cards out of my hand that I drew before Gishath could attack.

Thanks for checking out my deck!

Hi,

even for a budget version your deck is already going in the right direction, I think!

Haven't thought of Cathars' Crusade for this kind of deck before, but letting Gishath grow bigger, each time his trigger reveals a dinosaur, is just a really great combo! Will definitely think about that for my own deck. Mercadia's Downfall could be a blowout-card in this deck, too (imagine how big Gishath's trigger can grow this way!).

If you're looking for more enrage enablers, take a look at Breath of Darigaaz, Pyrohemia and Desert.

For ramp you could consider Urza's Incubator instead of one of the monuments.

A fun multiplayer card that either cheats out creatures from your hand or from the library is Selvala's Stampede.

That's all for now. You might also take a look at my own attempt on Gishath. I evaluated some of my card choices in the deck description:

A card I came across lately is Desert. If you plan to put in more enrage creatures in the future and if your manabase can handle it this is perfect for triggering enrage now and then without wasting a slot - plus the ability to ping tokens and the like.

Boros Reckoner + Rush of Vitality + Desert = Infinite Life Gain

If you need more copies of Reckoner I'd suggest Spitemare may be useful.

Cool deck! I'm not sure about some of the utility lands though. Haunted Fengraf doesn't seem to be any better than anything else here. Quicksand is good, but both lands sac to themselves. Maybe you could add some form of recursion? In addition, here are a few colorless utility land you might consider: Desert and Glimmerpost.

Actually, I just looked at common utility lands as I was writing this and realized that there are basically none. Now I see why you use the lands you do.
