Gishath, Sun's Avatar occurrence in decks from the last year

My friend has a Gishath, Sun's Avatar deck. I HATE whenever he just throws out a 12/12 trample for two mana. I'd be terrified if it was his commander. I have always wanted a mono green deck, so I may consider this.......

That could be an easy fix seeing how Catastrophe was what I cut out of Gishath, Sun's Avatar to slot back in that Ravages of War. With Heroic Intervention on the stack, I’d assume everyone would scoop at that point. Great suggestion!

unwucht, oh no, I’m sorry about Ravages of War. I just slotted mine back in my Gishath, Sun's Avatar deck. I’m going to hold onto Armageddon in the deck, at least a little longer to apply major pressure. Maelstrom Wanderer will be replaced with Temur Ascendancy. The two times I’ve cast Maelstrom in testing, I have whiff pretty bad. As for the addition to Teferi, Time Raveler, it is to prevent interaction while we are trying to blow up on a turn, since we don’t run any counter. Hopefully it’s useful and not a waste of a slot since he doesn’t really have synergy with the build.

That said, raw power isn't always what you want or even necessarily more fun. For instance, the building decisions from Grand Warlord Radha's mana ability are really fun to play around with and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed's and Nikya of the Old Ways's restrictions make for fun playlines and deck-building.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar definitely qualifies as stompy. Mayael the Anima can be fun for the guessing game, Gahiji, Honored One has the politics angle. Atla Palani, Nest Tender is a house. Marisi, Breaker of the Coil is also great at building stompy, with the added political edge to make games more interactive.

Lots of excellent choices.

Oh, and another vote for Animar, Soul of Elements for raw power. Homeboy is a BEAST

So how do you plan on casting Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Zacama, Primal Calamity? Or is the plan to exclusively cheating them out with Natural Order?

and which one is your commander? Gishath, Sun's Avatar ?

KIRK77 on Life, uh...Well, you know...

Pretty sweet dino deck! Something I might suggest would be that the colors you are in are the best at protecting creatures and Gishath, Sun's Avatar is a pretty penny to cast more than once. Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver just came out and can protect your commander from being removed when you're all tapped out

I'm personally a big fan on Rishkar's Expertise or Return of the Wildspeaker in decks that are using big smashy creatures

Pyrohemia might be a pretty cool enchantment too since it gets all those enrage triggers for you and can get rid of the small chump blockers your opponents might try to throw in your way

Happy brewing!

Hey, nice deck! I'm also brewing on Gishath, Sun's Avatar, my actual thoughts are on board whipes before playing the commander. Nevinyrral's Disk, Magus of the Disk, Oblivion Stone can make a clean battlefield, which makes an attack with Gishath, Sun's Avatar (maybe) more effective. Also by playing mana ramp sorceries your lands wouldn't be affected..

If you are playing mana artifacts consider Arcane Signet and/ or Talisman of Impulse. And is there a specific reason playing Huatli, Warrior Poet?
