Gishath, Sun's Avatar

Legendary Creature — Dinosaur

Trample, vigilance, haste

When Gishath, Sun's Avatar deals combat damage to a player, reveal that many cards from the top of your library. Put any number of Dinosaur creature cards from among them onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Catpocolypse on The Most Backwards Deck You'll Ever See

@ihazpie Thanks a bunch for clearing up the situation about Roc Egg . I do like the idea of changelings in this deck, even if I wasn't 100% on board with Mirror Entity . In response to your thought about Gishath, Sun's Avatar , im probably going to keep him. Not only is he very large, but he is basically a massive, walking, talking egg. Unless I exile something of my own, I dont actually get a changeling off Crib Swap so i don't think that i am going to include that.

I think they errata'd the roc egg to be an bird egg creature type so it still works. (https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=roc+egg) This card is in the naya c19 precon and the creature type is changed. Irregular Cohort is a good card, i think, because it gives you two changelings. Crib Swap seems like a good removal spell and it gives you changeling as well. IMO, I would take out the dinosaur creature ramp like Knight of the Stampede and the others because you have 12 dinosaurs excluding the changelings. I am not so sure about keeping Gishath, Sun's Avatar either. Here is my deck that I've been working on; I changed the commander from Gishath to the egg lady, Dinosaur eggs are better than Dragons. Maybe, it will give you some ideas. Any suggestions are welcome as well.

Ok so if you're interested in building Dino's, there are plenty of good options! Gishath, Sun's Avatar is probably your best bet, but if you're looking for a more combo based route Atla Palani, Nest Tender also works out well.

As for the +1/+1 counter deck, it depends on what the colors are.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar is an absolute must in any dino deck! he makes an amazing commander too! whenever he deals combat damag to a player you reveal cards from the top of your deck equal to the damage dealt and play any number of dinos from them for free!

This seems to be true for a lot of bigh ranking decks, however. If you search Gishath, Sun's Avatar , and rank it score descending, Ixalan Park by CardTyrant does not appear, despite it having 210 votes. Is it purely a prototype or legality issue, or are there any other reasons top decks wouldnt appear in these situations? it makes it hard to compare our decks to others if the best ones dont appear

Sunbird's Invocation is a great way to cheat in dinos as it gives you a pseudo cascade effect akin to Gishath, Sun's Avatar . Kindred Summons is a decent way to cheat in Dinos as well, though it is much more effective the more dinos you already have on the board.

For card draw Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a great add in creature-heavy decks. Rishkar's Expertise provides nice card draw as well as helps you cheat in some creatures.

Pyrohemia is probably the single best and most consistent way to trigger your Enrage mechanics, as you can do it whenever you want as long as you have a red mana up.

Hi!! Really love your deck so far, as you mentioned, it's still a work in progress, but I think you've got a great shell to build on so far. Many improvements I would suggest to "improve" the Dinosaur package are creatures that you've mentioned so far in your maybe board, which is good. I am also pleased to see you playing Smothering Tithe which is one of the best cards in the EDH format to be introduced in ages.

I strongly recommend Exploration if you have it. This is another great tool for ramping early on, as well as Wilderness Reclamation , which I think is great as well. The only tricky thing with running Gishath, Sun's Avatar as your commander, is that while he does dump a lot of dinosaurs onto the field, they have to survive until your next turn in order to be used for an attack. For this reason, effect like Faith's Reward or Leave / Chance can save you from wipe, or indestructible effects like rootborn defences, running a slew of spells doing either would increase the decks potency, I think.

Overall, great deck! +1 and I wish you luck with it in the future! If you want any other ideas, here's my Mayael the Anima deck, which might contain some other ideas to help you out.
