Huatli, Warrior Poet Discussion

No problem, I’m glad it helped you some. It was good for me too since I think I’ll add some some of the thoughts to my lacking Sideboard section (I’ve been meaning to put one in for a while!)
I think Shadowspear would be a fantastic idea! I haven’t pick any up myself yet but it would still be pretty good having it out and an Embercleave at the same time. Being able to give two different creatures Trample would be nice.
Were you thinking of replacing Embercleave with it? I think that could still work but a split of something like 2-2 or even 3-3 would be pretty good. I’d lean more to 3-3 unless the creature count is a little low.
The Lifelink on Shadowspear would be a great addition since it’s something Dinos kinda lack. There are other ways I’ve gained life in the past (Huatli, Warrior Poet and Verdant Sun's Avatar) but the fact Trample come along with it is incredibly valuable I feel.

I know you're all about Elspeth, but you're channeling a bit of Huatli, Warrior Poet more than anything here.
Nice job, it was a fun read!

deck, I wanted to let you know that I've been making revisions.
First and foremost, I removed Hazezon Tamar because he is too much money for a single card, his ability doesn't trigger right away, you can't ramp into him appropriately (Using stones means less tokens), and the tokens leave when he does.
I also removed the "Wincons" section, because I figure I am going to be generating a ton of hate from the other three players; If my creatures are constantly dying and my board is being wiped, creature-based win conditions mean nothing. So, instead I replaced them with boardstate protection to stop my guys from being blown off the face of the mat.
Lastly, I added in four sweepers myself, in the event I just need to reset the game and rebuild. Each of the sweepers will actually generate me value, such as Hour of Reckoning as it protects my creature tokens from being blown up.
I may consider dropping a few Superfriends, perhaps down to 4. I have the following ones for the following reasons:
- Ajani, Strength of the Pride : Tons of life and exiles the entire boardstate of everyone but me
- Domri, Chaos Bringer : Mana, mana, mana. Plus filtration if needed. The emblem is cool if he lives long enough to get it, too.
- Elspeth Tirel : Tokens, life and hate.
- Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury : Mana, light control, draw engine. I am mostly interested in her ability to generate free dorks.
- Huatli, Warrior Poet : Life. That's all she is in here for. The others are useful if need be, but I want her life ability.
- Xenagos, the Reveler : Mana out the ass and freecasting.
As you can see, there is a theme here: Mana & Life. Keeps the engines going.
If I drop any, it will be Freyalise and Huatli as they feel the weakest, being only viable for one option.
Ajani and Elspeth both generate mass amounts of life and have sweepers built in that give me advantage. They can also generate tokens, if need be.
Domri and Xenagos both offer me mana, give me tokens, and allow me to either filter the top four or merely play the top seven.
Frey and Hualti just give me a dork and some life. Frey can get me some serious draw if she sticks around, but Hualti is basically a one-trick pony.

This is a pretty cool idea. But I would suggest removing some of the non-dinosaur creature cards and replace them with Huatli, Warrior Poet , , Huatli, Dinosaur Knight , Etali, Primal Storm , & Ghalta, Primal Hunger

As usual in red/white tribal brews, Mirror Entity and Taurean Mauler are good. Rampaging Ferocidon was banned in standard but is modern legal. Snubhorn Sentry is a lot simpler to turn on, and running an 'all 3 toughness' board means a single pump puts you out of bolt/anger range.
Theres probably some colour matters/keyword shenanigans you can manage with Cerodon Yearling / Relentless Raptor / Sky Terror / Swiftblade Vindicator / Truefire Paladin , but that feels like a different deck.

Mana base needs some work. Fast lands aren't great for you when your curve is so high. Also, there are planeswalkers that interact with creatures(like Samut and Ajani), but hardly any that make tokens to be interacted with. Why no Garruks or Xenagos? Elspeth Tirel , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Huatli, Warrior Poet would also be good additions.
