Grazing Whiptail Discussion

mr_funk on Great Wall of dinosaurus

instead of Vizier of the True, would you consider Drover of the Mighty ? also ones to consider could be Ripjaw raptor (budget concerns can come with this, could consider Grazing Whiptail if so), Imperial Aerosaur (surprise flying can close out a game), Priest of the Wakening Sun (life gain and tutoring can be super useful, in my experience with that guy), Kinjalli's Sunwing , Commune with Dinosaurs, Verdant Sun's Avatar, Ranging Raptors....

so this is a lot of suggestions,

but if you put Ranging Raptors and Drover of the Mighty , that pairs with Kinjalli's Caller to capitalize on ramping out bigger bombs. also taking advantage of the "dinos matter" would be the inclusion of Kinjalli's Sunwing , Priest of the Wakening Sun, and Commune with Dinosaurs.

Verdant Sun's Avatar is a giant bomb that is really only possible with the other ramp stuff. (could also consider Thundering Spineback if you go down the road of making lots of mana. good mana sink)

ill slap a list together and post it on here of what i think. i dig it though. is there any "lifegain matters" in standard at the moment? if so all the lifegain stuff (Ravenous Daggertooth included) could be a veritable strategy with a sort of build like this.

Oh and there's got to be a better option than Grazing Whiptail.

Nylea171:
I feel your deck just needs more focus. You have several good Gruul cards in the deck, but due to the inconsistency of the draw and ramp, you will have inconsistency with curving out. Based on the majority of the cards in the deck, I'd say this deck is a modern deck. Based on that I would say even if your planning casually, I'd be hesitant to play cards like:

Boon Satyr, Emperor's Vanguard, Grazing Whiptail, Polis Crusher, Snapping Sailback, Charging Monstrosaur, Burning Sun's Avatar

CMC 4 or greater must be very selective, even in green. I would go with a more streamline approach to cards over 4 CMC. Here is an example of your deck:

Creatures (28):

CMC 1 (8):
4x Elvish Mystic
4x Kird Ape

CMC 2 (8):
4x Burning-Tree Emissary
2x Flinthoof Boar
2x Heir of the Wilds

CMC 3 (6):
2x Atzocan Archer
1x Combat Celebrant
2x Fanatic of Xenagos
1x Ranging Raptors

CMC 4 (5):
4x Ghor-Clan Rampager
1x Nylea, God of the Hunt

CMC 5 (0):

CMC 6 (1):
1x Ruric Thar, the Unbowed

Instants (8):
2x Heroic Intervention
4x Lightning Strike
2x Magma Jet

Planewalkers (2):
1x Nissa, Vital Force
1x Samut, the Tested

Land (22):
2x Cinder Glade
8x Forest
8x Mountain
4x Rootbound Crag

Firstly you're at 99 cards, so you're one short, it counts your commander.Wouldn't run: Bonded Horncrest, Colossal Dreadmaw, Grazing Whiptail, Shining Aerosaur, Tilonalli's Knight, Crash the Ramparts, Blinding Fog, New Horizons or Emergent GrowthWould Run Asceticism Gruul War PlowKindred Boon, kindred charge , Kindred Summons, Mirror Entity.

Basically you dont wanna run too many commons. You want permanent sources of trample or haste like the war plow.

Autumnstar Thanks for the notes! I kind of forgot about changeling haha, though I'm still trying to keep the deck as much dinosaur as I can for the flavor... Taurean Mauler looks super nice though so I'll probably put that in, especially since I tend to play commander with many people per game.

Crib Swap seems really nice as well, but the deck is pretty packed with important noncreature cards already, so I'll probably sideboard that for now. I also swapped out Shining Aerosaur for Grazing Whiptail - cheaper and still fulfills a role I need of blocking fliers.

Just have to wait for Rivals of Ixalan to release, and then I'll have some more choice of dinos to put in haha

I think your land looks pretty fixed... I think the best thing you could do is make Drover of the Mighty a 4 of because you may not be set with Otepec Huntmaster t2. Sadface for no haste-asaurus right off in that case though.May I suggest Burning Sun's Avatar or more Charging Monstrosaur? Maybe youre right though, I can see Raging Swordtooth sweeping the 1/1 goblin and vamps off the field. I just thought of Grazing Whiptail as well for some blue flying pirates?
