Ghalta, Primal Hunger and The Great Henge are pretty good in power-matters decks.

It definitely should. With something like Ghalta, Primal Hunger it can effectively work like a fling to end games, but without the blowout potential, since you don’t have to kill the creature to do so. Playing with other mono green decks, I sometimes find that I’m one or two damage short in combat to win, but Ram Through can mean that it ultimately doesn’t matter.

Thanks again! Glad you found Indomitable Stomps -- (Fight Club/Stompy) inspiring enough to folder. I'm planning on adding Kogla, the Titan Ape and Voracious Hydra, and perhaps Thorn Mammoth for extra fight-itude. Also Ghalta, Primal Hunger cuz she's big

I just recently made decks around some of the prime dinosaurs. My favorite is Nezahal, Primal Tide and another one that I used in a deck is Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Ghata can have for really interesting and funny decks build around it, and Nezahal can be a monster. Especially with cards that make it unblock able or buff it's damage.

Here are my thoughts.

  1. You need a few more lands. Aggro decks need to reliably cast their spells quickly to overwhelm their opponents. I would suggest cutting the Khalni Hydra's and a Ghalta, Primal Hunger or 2 in favor of lands.

  2. Have you consider Gaea's Anthem?

  3. Why not 4 of the Steel Leaf Champion and 2 of the Leatherback Baloth? They both have the same level of toughness for moderns general removal options, so why not have the extra point of power and chance of being unblocked.

  4. You only have 4 permanent types in your deck and will hardly ever get the delerium for Gnarlwood Dryad. Maybe throw a couple fetch lands or cycling lands to help with that.

Lot's of play-testing and game-play has led to the following changes:

Quartzwood Crasher is in. Avenger of Zendikar is out.

Godo, Bandit Warlord is in. Chancellor of the Forge is out.

Ghalta, Primal Hunger is in. Craterhoof Behemoth is out.

Giant Adephage is in. Living Hive is out.

Malignus is in. Gaea's Cradle is out.

Momentous Fall is in. Altar of Dementia is out.

Return of the Wildspeaker is in. Comet Storm is out.

Reap the Past is in. Moldgraf Monstrosity is out.

The Great Henge is in. Temporal Aperture is out.

Skyshroud Claim is in. Thaumatic Compass  Flip is out.

Also, on a whim, I decided to swap in Etali, Primal Storm for Stalking Vengeance. Yeah, that took about one attack trigger to make this exchange permanent.

Etali, Primal Storm is in. Stalking Vengeance is out.

Observations: Godo, Bandit Warlord, The Great Henge, Etali, Primal Storm, Return of the Wildspeaker and Quartzwood Crasher were absolute all-stars in game-play and play-testing. Bonafide all-stars. I recommend adding these cards to every Xenagos, God of Revels EDH/Commander deck.

All changes have been made to the current deck list. Thank you for the feedback and comments!
