Fires of Yavimaya Discussion

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

Good looking first deck! I'll offer some suggestions to help out :)

You may want more cheap ramping with Dinos being so expensive, in order to lower your average CMC. Rampant Growth, Farseek, the applicable signets: Gruul Signet, Boros Signet, and Selesnya Signet, Darksteel Ingot, and even the higher-cost Explosive Vegetation and Skyshroud Claim make a lot of sense here. Birds of Paradise might be worthy of honorary Dino status here too.

As far as enchantments go, Elemental Bond can easily provide draw, while both Fervor and Fires of Yavimaya are worth considering for haste, the latter being the better of the two if you only add one. Steely Resolve offers some really nice, cheap protection for tribal decks. Beyond any of these, you shouldn't really be running a lot of enchantments in this deck, so don't worry too much.

Speaking of protection and haste at cheap costs, you can't go wrong with Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots.

To make room for any changes you might want to make, I suggest mostly, if not totally, dropping the Enrage-trigger strategy. I played a Gishath deck for a little while on Cockatrice and discovered quickly it's not really viable. Enrage already makes your opponents apprehensive to attack by virtue of it existing on your creatures. So, when they do choose to attack or block your dudes, you'll still be able to reap the benefits without any effort. Instead, my advice is focus on ramping, getting your dudes out there (especially Gishath), and using good removal spells and world effects to reset the board when needed.

Tested in the wild at the store and had the combo multiple times but could not execute as Creatures were summoning sick. I am putting in more haste enablers

  1. Entomb replacing Vitalize
  2. Lightning Greaves replacing Isochron Scepter
  3. Fires of Yavimaya replacing Instill Energy

Also the following changes:

  1. Olivia Voldaren replacing Blasphemous Act
  2. Tranquil Domain replacing Lifecrafter's Bestiary
  3. Swift Warkite replacing Hellkite Charger

Rant on Grand Warlord Radha Elfball

I would recommend not using Concordant Crossroads and use Fires of Yavimaya, Shared Animosity is great as well! You kinda have to choose which way you wanna go with this Radha though. You can either go Combat buffs, or do big Fireballs! I recommend running Banefire and Comet Storm if you want the most bang for your buck.

Looks good! Here's some suggestions:

Boros Charm - saves your guys from board wipes or damage/destroy removal, can go to an opponents face for 4 damage for a random kill at instant speed, and is the nuts with Gishath because it makes him even harder to block, triggers his ability twice even through a blocker or two, and makes a commander damage kill easier.

Walking Ballista/Triskelion - amazing with all the enrage creatures, particularly Bellowing Aegisaur, which let's you put 5 ±1/±1 counters on each creature you control each turn (or just put infinite counters on everything if you happen to make Aegisaur indestructible somehow...)

Tooth and Nail - just a great card, can search for whatever two guys you need and can get both parts of a combo right away.

Xenagos, God of Revels - amazing in a deck with this many big creatures. Makes a Gishath commander damage kill easier but also is just great with big dinosaurs. Also it's big and hard to kill if you turn it into a creature.

Fires of Yavimaya - another great card with Gishath and the rest of your deck. Giving a bunch of giant Dino's haste is awesome and the +2/+2 is very relevant, digging 2 cards deeper with Gishath, protecting one of your guys from damage based removal or a close combat situation, or letting you trigger enrage 2 more times. Also works well with double strike and Xenagos's +X/+X.

Earthquake, Magmaquake, Pyromatics, etc. - works great with enrage, let's you wipe the board but not necessarily kill all of your creatures. Not as unconditional as [Blasphemous Act], but more flexible depending on the version.

Relic of Progenitus, Rest in Peace, Scavenging Ooze etc. - graveyard hate is almost necessary in most games and groups, not that fun but can win the game or at least give you time against graveyard decks.

Eternal Witness, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Aura Shards, Vandalblast, Fracturing Gust, Naya Charm, Solemn Simulacrum - staple commander cards in Naya colors.

Just some ideas, no clue what to cut though. Hope this helps!

I'd remove the Raptor Hatchling as long as you you have no way to stack damage triggers or something. It just doesn't have real impact in EDH.

Same goes for Arlinn Kord  Flip. I'd rather play other, more consistent ways of giving your commander (and other creatures) haste like Fires of Yavimaya or other enchantments that give your creatures haste and trample.

I'd also remove the monuments, they won't help you so much. For example Oketra's Monuments second effect won't impact the game much, and you have like 10 white creatures that can profit from the cost reduction. You'd have to play all of them after the monument to save like 7 mana. If you just play Kodama's Reach you will profit a lot more of it. Instead of Hazoret's I'd play anything that lets you draw a card whenever you play a creature, something like Elemental Bond. Rhona's is fine, you have enough green creatures, I personally would prefer something like Primal Rage or Nylea, God of the Hunt to keep the trample even without casting creatures.

Also I recommend Caltrops for the enrage trigger, if the lack of flavor doesn't matter to you.
