Huatli, Dinosaur Knight Discussion

Yeah, it would be great if they printed some more dinosaurs with good etb-effects in Rivals!
For Scroll Rack you could maybe cut the Academy Rector. It's propably in there to get your pet card Call of the Wild, but apart from that I don't see that much use for it. Additionaly, you only have one card in your deck that can kill the rector. Letting it die in combat can be difficult sometimes.
Another possibilty would be to cut Archetype of Courage as it's no dinosaur and I don't consider first strike that important.
Personally I would not play Huatli, Dinosaur Knight as her abilities seem to have not enough impact for her mana cost. But Huatli, Warrior Poet is good because she can make dinosaurs, gain life and trigger enrage.

Hi,I evaluated some cards for my own Gishath EDH deck just yesterday. Maybe it will help you. You can check it out here:
The basic problem, that all Gishath-decks have in my opinion, is that they have to play a lot of big, clunky dinosaurs, which you would not include in any other EDH deck ever, because they are just weak compared to cards like Avenger of Zendikar, Godo, Bandit Warlord or Sun Titan for example. So at least your non-dinosaur-cards should be as strong and impactful as possible. You should also avoid playing too many cards that do nothing on their own, are too situational or are just "win more".
This is why I'd recommend to cut cards like:
I also do not like cards like Lurking Predators and See the Unwritten or Selvala's Stampede in here because they offer an effect that your commander already provides. I'm not sure if the redundancy is needed.

One more thing: I think some of the planeswalkers don't have to be in this deck.
Huatli, Dinosaur Knight and Huatli, Warrior Poet are cool flavorwise but they don't do much in EDH. For its six mana the abilities of Huatli, Dinosaur Knight do not have enough impact. Huatli, Warrior Poet at least makes dinosaurs without costing any loyalty, which may warrant her inclusion. Her +1 may be cool sometimes but is not what you typically need in this kind of deck.
Samut, the Tested is good because of its +1 but you already have a lot of cards that grant your creatures double strike. It's worth considering to take out one of those cards and put in Xenagos, God of Revels instead, because he also gives a big dmg boost to Gishath while at the same time comboing even further with the double strike cards. The -2 would be only good for triggering enrage.

I'm thinking about taking this and tweaking. I want to add in 2 Bellowing Aegisaur (in place of your Huatli, Dinosaur Knight and then adding in a Trove of Temptation (just one) to replace a Pillar of Origins
It will make all of your dinos even beefier, which our Planeswalker can use to ensure our life total stays on the up and up.

Drakon562 Thanks, I appreciate it! Just ordered the single cards I'm missing. Considered Huatli, Dinosaur Knight but I thought I should keep it at 2 planeswalkers and Domri Rade just fits perfectly in here!
Will update the Deck with new Dinosaurs when the Ixalan Expansion Set releases next year. If you like the precon idea check out [PreCon] Game of Thrones - Monarch and [PreCon] Brain Feast - Zombie Mill. Finished these two already and they are hella fun :)

I like the deck! I don't know if it would be possible to slot in Huatli, Dinosaur Knight, but this seems pretty balanced and at precon-level. +1
