Kinjalli's Sunwing Discussion

Hey, looks good for a budget Dino deck.

Deck building is about establishing a core for consistency. A core of cards that you always want to draw in games. These cards are the best cards for your strategy. The core cards are played in the deck as 4 ofs (4x of the card). Currently you have zero 4 ofs this will hurt being able to consistency draw certain cards.

Here's an example of a possible core using the cards you have here:

I've made two different two drops (cards with a mana cost of two) as 4 ofs I've done this because you want to consistently draw one of them to play turn two. Monstrosaur is the best Dino here for your strategy it can win you games you want to draw one every game.

Strike and Shock are the best removal spells because they can target a creature or a player. The strategy here is doing damage to your opponent with Dinos. Strike or Shock can give you that last bit damage you need to do to kill your opponent and win the game. I consider these burn spells core cards because they're cheap mana costs once you get a Dino into play you can use these spells to clear the way for your Dino to attack for very little mana cost.

Because they can hit a player they're also not dead cards at anytime of the game because if you have to just use them to damage a player.


I suggest you use Wonderine's advice and add Otepec Huntmaster. Huntmaster is another good example of a core card, you want to play him turn two because any other Dino that's played after gets a mana cost reduction and Huntmaster can give it haste. Giving Monstrosaur or Zetalpa a mana cost reduction makes it even better.

If choosing to add Huntmaster this is what the core could change into:

  • 4x Relentless
  • 4x Huntmaster
  • 3x Terror
  • 4x Monstrosaur
  • 4x Strike
  • 4x Shock

Adding Huntmaster as a core card gives you another two drop that's more important than Terror thus I have reduced Terror to a 3 of instead of a 4 of. The thought is that you want to draw either Huntmaster or Relentless and play them turn two before you play a Terror. Terror is less good then the other two.

Cards that are not in the core are not played as 4 ofs, but as 3 ofs, 2 ofs or 1 ofs. These cards are meant to support the core of cards. Here's an example seeing both using cards you have here and Huntmaster:

    Core
  • 4x Relentless
  • 4x Huntmaster
  • 4x Monstrosaur
  • 4x Strike
  • 4x Shock

  • Supporting
  • 3x Terror
  • 2x Zetalpa
  • 3x Cast
  • 2x Abrade
  • 2x Gideon

I haven't included all the cards currently here this is because these are the best cards of the current cards in the deck. The others that are not in this list I don't think are they're good enough and can be cut for other options.


Regisaur Alpha is a powerful card one of the best Dinos, but he doesn't fit with the deck because he costs green mana. Because of the budget here and not having many dual lands consider cutting green and just playing white and red?

Aether Hub is great mana fixing, but only when you're making additional energy from other sources. Playing Hub as the only green source of mana in the manabase is not worth disrupting all the other cards in the deck.

Cards like Relentless Raptor and Sky Terror have challenging mana costs if playing three colors. These two drop Dinos are more important than Alpha for the strategy here. Huntmaster can give Dinos haste to make up for the loss of Alpha.

Cards to consider adding:

I suggest consider cutting Hub and replacing it 4x Stone Quarry. This white and red dual land does ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped, but it has no restrictions of making colored mana. If you can get 2x more Vantage then great it's the best dual land for this deck.

Sunwing is a very good Dino his ability lets you attack with other Dinos and get through with more damage because creatures your opponent plays ETB tapped meaning opponent's creatures can't block your creatures the turn they're played. Sunwing also gives the deck a three drop Dino which I think is important to have at least one three drop Dino. You have Hammerskull in the sideboard which is good, but I think if you don't have any Sunwing then move it to the main deck. It's ability is also good and it's just what you want when attacking with Dinos.

Of the budget option four drop Dinos Aerosaur is a good one because it has flying and can pump another Dino as well as give it flying when it ETB. As a four drop Dino it's ability is better for the strategy here then Needletooth Raptor who's not going to be attacking.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 3x Hatchling
  • 2x Alpha
  • 2x Needletooth
  • 3x Rest
  • 2x Hold
  • 2x Axis
  • 3x Map
  • 4x Hub
  • 2x Plains

Consider cutting these cards to add more copies of the better cards in the deck? For example cut 3x Hatchling for 2x more Monstrosaur and 1x more Relentless. Another example cut 2x Needletooth for 2x Aerosaur or 3x Rest for 3x Sunwing or Hammerskull, etc.


Here's an example combining some of my suggestions of a possible Dino base to consider:

  • 4x Relentless
  • 4x Huntmaster
  • 3x Terror
  • 4x Sunwing or 3x Hammerskull
  • 2x Aerosaur
  • 4x Monstrosaur
  • 2x Zetalpa

If this advice was helpful to you I can continue with other suggestions and more advice. Let me know.

Good luck with your deck.

Kinjalli's Caller might be a nice addition to this deck, as it gets your big dinosaurs out 1 turn earlier. I feel like Kinjalli's Sunwing should replace Relentless Raptor, and you might want to add Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, as it proves a solid finisher. Great deck!

BlaineTog yea, im probably just going to put Fumigate in sideboard against Anointed Procession and other token decks, but im not too sure where I could put Settle the Wreckage, as I need to still have some early game against aggro and some of their smaller creatures I might not be able to counter. Besides, I already have 6 sideboard cards for aggro (Authority of the Consuls and Kinjalli's Sunwing)

Hello! You were looking for some help so i'm here to give some suggestions for your build.

Did you want to remain strictly mono-red? I think you should run some Needletooth Raptor and maybe 2 copies of Forerunner of the Empire which allows you to tutor and also ping everything on the board which can deal with wide strategies or make combat more favorable for you as it also triggers enrage. And maybe Reckless Rage for some higher reach whilst also triggering the enrage.

though if you added red, you could run Sky Terror and Relentless Raptor and Radiant Destiny and Baffling End and Kinjalli's Sunwing and Path of Mettle  Flip perhaps.

(Sorry for writing an essay, I'm studiously avoiding writing a paper for school)

You do indeed have a lot of creatures, but you also have a lot of good cards. Try to think about what your deck wants to do. To me, it looks like it wants to 1) play a lot of dinos, 2) trigger a lot of enrages, 3) attack with a bunch of dudes for lots of damage, so here's some suggestions based on that.

Cards I'd recommend you take out:

My overall suggestions would be to keep aware of your mana curve and your color distribution. Take a look at your creatures and take out the ones that seem too mana-expensive for what they achieve. Keep track of what problems you encounter when you play. Do you struggle with mana, do you need more draw power, are you unable to deal with a particular matchup repeatedly? Then use that to make adjustments based on what you feel is working and what you enjoying playing.

Jeez, this curve is so steep... If I were you, I would do one of two things: Lower the curve, or include more lands and ramp.

If you want to play a deck that reliably gets to 5 mana, you should include ramp like Merfolk Branchwalker, Druid of the Cowl, Servant of the Conduit, Atzocan Seer etc. And like FlabbyAbs said, 24-25 lands seem like the way to go. You could also try to add some draw to get more lands into your hand.

Enter the Unknown is kinda bad without cards like Deeproot Champion, Winding Constrictor or simply a lot of small creatures. You have neither the combos or the general deck to make proper use of it, and it does not replace Attune with Aether. If you are looking a replacement, consider Commune with Dinosaurs instead.

You could make this deck way lower on curve. Use cards like Blossoming Defense to be able to rely on your Myriarch sticking. Verdurous Gearhulk and Angel of Invention are great cards, but running 8 5-drops is to much man. Seeing as myriarch is actually a buildaround, you shouldn't need any more to finish the game. GW is the best colors for protecting permanents, so you should be able to keep it alive if you need to. Watch out for board wipes though, Heroic Intervention should do the job.

Vizier of the Menagerie is awesome, but you kinda ruin it with this high of a curve. Casting a couple of minion from your deck is awesome. Include Merfolk Branchwalker for even more synergy, since it avoids lands on top of your deck. And maybe even Lifecrafter's Bestiary for grindy matchups. But Vizier+Myriarch should get the job done if you need fuel. The rest of the deck should 2-, 3-, and 1-drops, in that order of importance. Narnarm is bad without a revolt-shell, but you could try to make a revolt deck to get Renegade Rallier. Other cards i would recomend for a GW weenie deck:

Adorned Pouncer, Sacred Cat, Prowling Serpopard, Fairgrounds Warden, Appeal, Siegehorn Ceratops, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Tocatli Honor Guard, Huatli, Radiant Champion, Skymarcher Aspirant, Adanto Vanguard, Territorial Hammerskull and maybe Savage Stomp if you feel like playing some dinos.

I'll look forward to seeing where you take this deck

I think I definitely need removal mainboard and explore mechanics to hit lands (for swordtooth). Jadelight Ranger is a bit out of my price range atm so I might go with

-3 Resilient Khenra+3 Merfolk Branchwalker

-2 Kinjalli's Sunwing -1 Aethersphere Harvester+3 Baffling End or Cast Out or even some Ixalan's Binding

Hey, interesting version of tokens.

No main deck removal? That's risky, Cast Out is a good reason to play white as a main deck answer to Glorybringer. I suggest adding 2-3x Cast main deck. Consider cutting Resilient Khenra for Cast? Kinjalli's Sunwing, Aethersphere Harvester and Sunscourge Champion seems like a nice sideboard plan in red matchups, but I don't think you need Sunwing or Harvester main deck as it's not really helping the token plan.

Currently the deck is lacking card advantage I suggest adding Jadelight Ranger for it's explore can help to find Tendershoot, Procession or lands to be played with Swordtooth. Consider cutting 2x Sunwing or Harvester, 1x Huatli and 1x Oketra replacing them with 4x Ranger?
