Gruul Signet Discussion
1 day ago
What do you think of Beast Whisperer? I added it to my deck which is about 95% the same as this except I replaced Gaea's Cradle with Kessig Wolf Run and Mana Crypt with Gruul Signet and Whisperer is putting up pretty good results for me.

I think this deck could be improved by lowering the curve of your mana ramp spells. The goal in the first couple turns should be to make sure you get Mayael the Anima out early.
All of the shock lands will drop in price with Ravinca being in Standard again, so if you ever plan to pick those up the next year or so will be the absolute bottom for those for a very long time.

Consider dropping the following:
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior
Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.
Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend
There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

shockwavej both mana base and mana rocks are important. If you can afford one of the full cycles(enemy or ally) of check lands(Rootbound Crag) I’d use those and the slow fetches. I’d start with the signets. Maybe two or three, like Gruul Signet and Rakdos Signet. A pretty decent sorcery to ramp is Explosive Vegetation. To sinergize with your creatures, there’s Zendikar Resurgent.

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.
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.

Armed // Dangerous another CMC2 Double Strike, $0.21. Downside is it's Sorcery.
Archetype of Aggression, gives all your creatures Trample, $0.39. 6 ground + 4 flying (partial evasion) don't have trample, thats 1/2 your available hitters, including 1 infect.
Gruul Signet, CMC2 Rock, $0.30.
Farseek, CMC2 Ramp!!, $0.27.
Flameblast Dragon won't get his doubled. Timing is off.
Slagstorm scary because it wipes out the dorks, but I understand the thinking, with Cats/Snakes/Vampires.
Arbor Elf, CMC1 Dork, $0.26.
Beastcaller Savant, CMC2, But he has Haste, $0.40 though.
Heart Warden, annoying at CMC2, but can draw a card if late in the game if he's a dead draw, $0.20. Modular is sometimes nice, especially in longer games.
Explore might work pretty well with 40 lands, and it draws a card, so maintains your card-advantage and ramp advantage. I also feel you have quite a bit (too many) lands with all the additional ramp/dorks you have? Might try 38 instead.
Thunderfoot Baloth $1.69, but has trample, with Xenagos is 14 Trample, and gives all other creatures Trample. The best of the Trample enablers mentioned for sure.
Artisan of Kozilek he is 10/9 (20/19 with Xenagos), Returns a creature from your graveyard to the battlefield (not hand), and has Annihilator 2 (Opponent sacrifices 2 permanents, with haste from Xenagos) for $0.43. I have lots of this guy, I'll bring you one.
Maybe with some shuffling of mana sources you can free up cash for Malignus, but he's quite expensive. Tough for budget.
Phyrexian Hydra another Infect guy. Makes it easier to kill 3 players.
Khenra Charioteer more trample, hes a 3/3 so he's not shabby for CMC3. Probably don't need that much anyway.
Talisman of Impulse best non- non- mana source available for $0.33.
Explosive Vegetation is good, but $0.92 and CMC4, I'm not sure. Might look for another lower CMC one to ramp a little faster for that $. Go a bit faster.
I haven't seen this one work yet, See the Unwritten and at $0.82, I'd probably just draw another creature like a Artisan of Kozilek. If you get lucky and the stars align, maybe you get 2, but one might be an Elf. I'd rather just draw another key creature, instead of the randomness. If it was CMC5 or CMC4 and casting a CMC8 maybe, but it's CMC6 probably casting a CMC6 or lower (based on probability, I can calculate it when I have some more time)
Living Hive is in Main and Maybeboard.
I only like Momentous Fall (too expensive $), Deus of Calamity (enables Xenagos), Kavu Predator could be interesting in our Pod (vs cats/vamps anyway). Malignus if you can budget him in. Steel Hellkite good utility again CMC0 Snakes/Vampires for example. Thunderfoot Baloth.
Don't like anything else there.
I think, less lands -2 perhaps, cheaper ramp (and maybe 1 more), 1 more creature (infect guy preferably), reallocate some cash to make sure each creature is a finisher, like Avatar of Fury is kind of blah, if you can cast for 2 he's ok, but what you doing with the other mana that turn anyway, would rather pay the 6 for a finisher. Siege Dragon feels a little underpowered too, but can board wipe (cats/vamps/snakes), would rather use Steel Hellkite instead, better control, lower CMC.
Living Hive feels small for CMC8! Wtf, not sure what your doing with the 1/1 insects, that don't even fly.
That's about all I have for now +1.

I like the build, but it feels slow to the ramp so you can effectively drop your bombs.
Signets are better than the rocks you’re running.
These put “Forests” into play. This includes dual lands that are forests as their type such as Breeding Pool, etc. also they enter untapped.
Chump block, sac response. Block and get a basic land in tapped.
Should be a no brainer for these two.
