Looming Altisaur Discussion

Dreamweav3r on Nissa, Nature's Artisan + Dinosaurs

I played Red Green Dinos in Standard for 4-5 FNM's and Drover of the Mighty helps that deck a lot with ramping, plus it had a good body after you get a Dino out. Llanowar Elves is another mana dork to consider. I'd start with adding 4x Drover of the Mighty and cutting some of the Dinos that don't really end the game too well on their own, (Looking at Looming Altisaur here.) Its a fun deck though, hope you find that helpful.

In all honesty there are a number of underperforming cards in the deck, even though it's pretty strong in my very casual playgroup. I could easily cut out cards like Voyaging Satyr (the deck only has 2 lands it does much with) and some of the other mana dorks and land-grabbing cards. On one hand, I can very consistently avoid mana issues, but on the other hand, it takes up a lot of deck space. It might have too much of a good thing.

Fortified Rampart, Grizzled Leotau, and Looming Altisaur are cheap options for high toughness, but they don't do much else. Of course, I like them because they become threats with Assault Formation or Belligerent Brontodon out, but that doesn't mean they can't be replaced by more powerful cards.

Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Suture Priest are redundant, and could be good targets for replacement. You may notice that this deck has a ton of support for ETB lifegain, but not much for token generation. I could definitely stand to have more tokens and populate, which is why Phyrexian Processor or Soul Foundry (along with other token creators) could stand to take the place of some of the weaker or redundant lifegain cards. As it stands, Shanna, Sisay’s Legacy is consistently pretty weak because she doesn't have the token support she wants, and Trostani's populate doesn't always have a target, which isn't what I usually want from my commander.

Thank you so much for your advice. You are totally right with Sun crowned hunter - he is not worth it and I used his slot to put in Needletooth Raptor.

Also Mayael the Anima was in the list for a while already. However, I only have 13 Cards with which she could interact - and I think my mana is to valiable for such a gamble (For an average, 20 creatures should have a power of 5 or more to give each ability activation at least one card to pick).

Why is Looming Altisaur a thing?!

  1. Traverse the Outlands and Rishkar's Expertise are goodTry and make room for both
  2. Definitely add Needletooth Raptor and Looming Altisaur
  3. You might want to consider Mayael the Anima
  4. If any of this was helpful could you please look at my Zur deck Zur Voltron, To win against five. +1 from me

Limo I think your mixing Looming Altisaur and Temple Altisaur. but I like what you've got there, don't really know how I missed that combo.

jakeelephant006 on Gishath is cool

Cards to pull:

Creatures- Belligerent Brontodon, Bonded Horncrest, Generator Servant, Looming Altisaur. Opaline Unicorn, Zhur-Taa Druid

Instants + Sorceries:Fateful Showdown ?, Enter the Unknown, Explore

There are some other cards that aren't that great, but currently you don't have the resources to replace them.

Cards to add from Sideboard:Commune with Dinosaurs, Kinjalli's Caller, Obelisk of Urd, Otepec Huntmaster

Other Recomendations:

Pick up the Huatli Planeswalker deck. It has Huatli, Dinosaur Knight who has great synergy with all dinos along with Burning Sun's Avatar, Sun-Blessed Mount, and Goring Ceratops which are all good dinosaurs themselves. And who knows, maybe you'll draw some of the dinosaurs from Ixalan that you don't have from the booster packs. Also, I'd recommend getting the Feline Ferocity commander deck from C17. It's the cheapest of the set, it's in your colors, and you can break it apart and use at least a third of the cards in there. Not many of the creatures would be of use but there are great commander staples and powerful cards in the the lands, instants, sorceries, arifacts, and enchantments in that deck. These two decks would be good options to help enhance your deck if you don't want to just go out and buy the singles you actually need.

This is pretty cool.

Couple things I was thinking while going through it -

Probably don't want to have Crushing Canopy and Slice in Twain in the main board since lots of decks don't play enchantments but they're excellent sideboard cards.

Definitely think Verdant Sun's Avatar would go naturally in here since you gain life equal to toughness so if you play Looming Altisaur you get seven life which is pretty insane.

I'd reccomend Cast Out or Ixalan's Binding since you almost always need an exile source for big threats like The Scarab God which everyone and their mother plays nowadays.

Also think Blossoming Defense would serve you well here since people will probably try to target your Belligerent Brontodon the moment you put him out.
