Drover of the Mighty Discussion

SirArevacoso thanks for the tips! I already have tested Naya with both cards Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Huatli, Warrior Poet and i love them. But with 3 colors even with Ranging Raptors and Drover of the Mighty it's difficult to not have problems, only if i put Thunderherd Migration and instead of Savage Stomp or Lightning Strike, but i like to be aggressive. Or just spent money on check lands like Rootbound Crag and Sunpetal Grove, but this is a budget deck now. Maybe works with Evolving Wilds. Beyond that, i think Gishath take so long to enter on battlefield, if i put it i have to modify this deck to ramp, 8 CMC is very expensive to play. I prefer Ghalta, Primal Hunger instead, i don't have to worry to ramp :p

Hey, Sarkhan's Unsealing has a lot of potential with Dinos. Five of the better Dinos triggers Unsealing: Ripjaw, Carnage Tyrant, Gigantosaurus, Regisaur Alpha and Ghalta. Ghalta, Tyrant and Giganto are very good because they trigger Unsealing second ability which can potentially board wipe only your opponent's side of the battlefield as well as do 4 damage to your opponent and all Planeswalkers he/she controls.

Unsealing triggers on cast this gets around counterspells and removal. Even if the Dino you cast is countered if it's power is 4 or more then it still does 4 damage to any target. Any target is a reason to play Unsealing it means you can target a creature, your opponent or any Planeswalker your opponent controls. Because it can target both creatures and Planeswalkers makes it a great main deck card since it's good in both aggro/midrange and control matchups.

For the manabase consider 4x Timber Gorge? I suggest Gorge over Sheltered Thicket because it looks like other than Abrade you're building Dinos for post rotation. You need more than only 4 sources of red mana in the manabase. I suggest 4x Crag, 4x Gorge and 4x Mountains to be able to consistently play Huntmaster turn two.

Consider 4x Llanowar Elves? Dino's like ramp and there's no better ramp card in Standard then Llanowar. 15-16 Forests is good reason to play Llanowar because consistently you'll have a Forest to play him turn one. I like Drover as a two drop mana dork more than Huntmaster because mana created by Drover can be used to cast nonDino spells. I also like Thrashing Brontodon instead of Raging Raptors. Raptors are lackluster without having an enrage enabler so you can take advantage of the land ramp. The four toughness of Brontodon is good for a three drop as well as it's abilty to sac itself to remove an artifact/enchantment which is handy to have for lots of matchups.

Consider this Dino creature base:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 4x Drover of the Mighty
  • 3x Brontodon
  • 4x Ripjaw
  • 3x Alpha
  • 2x Giganto
  • 2x Tyrant
  • 2x Ghalta

Consider this other spells base:

  • 4x Unsealing

  • 4x Commune
  • 4x Abrade

There's some Dinos that go well with a sideboard plan. Runic Armasaur and Deathgorge Scavenger. Both have narrow effects which makes them better as sideboard cards than main deck cards. Other sideboard cards to consider are Banefire, Magma Spray, Savage Stomp and Vivien Reid.

Good luck with your deck.


Kingtalk on First Deck, Dinosaur Commander

I'm a pretty big fan of dinosaurs, this deck overall looks good, could use a little work though. As far as lands go, I'd add in Jungle Shrine, Path of Ancestry, Rogue's Passage, and Kessig Wolf Run. If you want to splurge and ensure you can color fix more reliably, maybe throw in City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Forbidden Orchard too. One of my favorite cards in this deck is Congregation at Dawn because it can either set up your commander to do crazy work, or just set you up for a combo, or even just grab a few mana dorks. Defense of the Heart is also a fantastic card in this deck. I like to run Return to Dust in any deck that can run it because it's stellar removal. I see you have a couple Huatli planeswalkers, and they're good, but I'd also consider Domri Rade and Samut, the Tested. As for creatures, I see you have a few that can trigger the 'Enrage' keyword, but only two creatures that have the keyword. I built my dino deck around that keyword becuase I think it's really powerful. Consider adding in Bellowing Aegisaur, Ripjaw Raptor, Siegehorn Ceratops, Silverclad Ferocidons, and Trapjaw Tyrant. I'd also consider adding in Zacama, Primal Calamity, Temple Altisaur, and Territorial Hammerskull. For creatures to support your dinos, Drover of the Mighty, Druid of the Anima, and Priest of the Wakening Sun and all pretty good. Odric, Lunarch Marshal is an include in this deck because of all the keywords flying around, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is a reason enough to include him. They're not dinos, but there are two gods from Theros block that are great in here (and in general) Xenagos, God of Revels and Iroas, God of Victory are worthy includes in my opinion. For artifacts I like Door of Destinies and Caltrops to trigger your enrage abilities. Those are just a few suggestions, if you want to check out my dinosaur tech I'll link it here.

Daarkest Advent of the Wurm sounds like a good replacement for Armada Wurm since I get two flashed Wurms over three sorcery speed Wurms. Second Harvest feels a bit excessive though since he already have a lot of protection for our board and Parallel Lives and Growing Ranks will pull a lot of weight. I feel like Song of Freyalise wouldn't do too much since the aim of this deck is to have a lot of BIG tokens rather than a LOT of small tokens. This deck falls behind in terms of card advantage so that's why I considered Harmonize and tutors.

seshiro_of_the_orochi, I didn't even realise Drover of the Mighty was even a card since I didn't play while Ixalan was in rotation. Its only benefit when compared to Druid of the Anima though is if I keep in Polyraptor and I might switch between it and Nacatl War-Pride. Cream of the Crop however, is the perfect card tyty.

Looks pretty fun. Drover of the Mighty is propably better than druid of the anima. You might also like Cryptolith Rite and Cream of the Crop.

Really good for a first deck! The only thing I'd recommend is some activators for your Zahid and Tezzeret, or consider cutting them to run more of your lower to the ground creatures like Merfolk Branchwalker, or Llanowar Elves for extra ramp. If you didn't want to cut them, though, you could consider potentially Treasure Map  Flip (which is great for drawing the right lands, and those bigger creatures), or maybe Hornswoggle instead of a couple Essence Scatter. Only other comment I could have is that you have a lot of creatures which require many types of a singular mana, which in a two-colour deck can be pretty tough to play; maybe Navigator's Compass or Evolving Wilds would be a good pick, or running a couple fewer Thrashing Brontodons for more ramp like Drover of the Mighty or Llanowar Elves, or more explore creatures to make sure you hit those lands. Great stuff though!

I'm thinking of getting back in standard with a Dinasaur deck :)

If I were to build upon your deck I would add some ramping with 4 Drover of the Mighty, 4 Otepec Huntmaster, 4 Thunderherd Migration and have at least 23 lands.

For removal I would choose 4 Abrade(Lightning Strike works too) and maybe a couple of Reckless Rage.

For draw Commune with Dinosaurs.

And for the rest, Dinasaurs :)

I like it, but your turn 2 is a lacking a play, unless I am not noticing something. Try something like Druid of the Cowl or maybe Drover of the Mighty. Take a look at my deck, which runs at a similar idea - Vivien's Majesty
