Make a Stand

Instant

Creatures you control get +1/+0 and become indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them.)

Make a Stand Discussion

Streamside on R/W/G Dinosaur EDH

1 week ago

Specific Recommendations:

Creatures:

Cut:

Ancient Brontodon

Cacophodon

Gigantosaurus

Knotvine Mystic

Krosan Drover

Llanowar Elves

Needletooth Raptor

Ravenous Daggertooth

Territorial Hammerskull

Thrash of Raptors

We want to make room for some cards to help you get more dinosaurs onto the battlefield faster, and to interact with your opponents threats and spells. If you increase your card draw, you'll still draw into enough creatures to overwhelm your opponent.

Add:

Forerunner of the Empire

This tutors for a dinosaur and can trigger your engrage abilities. Sick combo with Polyraptor.

Colossal Majesty

This is going to serve as persistent card draw for keeping creatures on board, which you aim to do anyway.

Guardian Project and/or Elemental Bond

Both of these cards allow you to draw a card when a creature enters play.

Unbreakable Formation and/or Make a Stand

These can have two uses: the first use is on attack, but it also can be cast to safeguard your board from effects like Wrath of God .

Eerie Interlude

Like above, this protects your creatures from board wipes, but also works against exile and -x/-x effects like Toxic Deluge .

Resurrection and/or Breath of Life and/or Brought Back

Losing an expensive creature feels bad. Bringing it back to the battlefield for less than its casting cost helps take the sting away.

Replacements

Cut Naturalize , add Krosan Grip

Cut Fires of Yavimaya , add Rhythm of the Wild

Cut Worn Powerstone , add Sol Ring

Consider

Adding Board Wipes:

Star of Extinction and Starstorm are flavorful possibilities.

Adding a tutor or two:

Finale of Devastation is flavorful and rewards you for going big on mana.

Upgrading the mana base: I would start by replacing the "gain 1 life" lands with the "scry" lands in Core 2020, which can be had for about $2 each. From there I might look at getting a Krosan Verge and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and gradually upgrading over time.

What else to cut / Replace

I might nix Explore and Lay of the Land , and replace them with Domri, Chaos Bringer or Domri, Anarch of Bolas (which can provide mana and either card draw or removal), or Zacama, Primal Calamity , which you essentially cast for free (or gain mana from, if you're using Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun )), since it untaps your lands if you cast it from your hand.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful. I tried to stay on the lower end of prices on this stuff.

GL;HF! :D

Nice list! Have you considered using cards like Unbreakable Formation , Make a Stand and Heroic Intervention to protect yourself from board wipes? My Huatli deck is somewhat similar to yours and I have found the said cards to be quite effective.

Since you are in the colors, I think your best bet would be to make your board actually boardwipe-proof, with cards like Teferi's Protection , Rootborn Defenses , Make a Stand , Inspiring Call , Unbreakable Formation , Heroic Intervention .

Hey man!

Before we get into this, I just want to say that if I sound like a know-it-all and a dick, it's toatally unintentional and I apologize for it. Also, I have never played Jeskai in EDH, so please take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

It's kind of hard to find a good Jeskai Commander that is based around creatures, so I think you have two options:

Of course, you could have both in your deck, and switch them around as the meta/playgroup changes, but it's best to choose one now. I'll provide options for both.


The ramp and land package wil be roughly the same, so I'll start with that. I use TCC's manabase template, but feel free to change it.

Ramp

Lands

TCC's template for a manabase is this, but feel free to change it to fit your budget etc.

  • 3 OG Duals (Can be replaced by Check, Scry or Man lands)

  • 3 Shock

  • 3 Zend-Onslought Fetch (Can be replaced by Panoramas)

  • 15 total basics and utility (9/6 split)

  • 3 Filter Lands

  • 3 Pain Lands

  • 4 Any Colour Lands

  • 1 Tri Land

  • 3 Other Lands(more utility, duals, Lairs, etc)


Here's a deck that I drafted if you want Shu Yun, Silent Tempest as your commander. I left three slots for the cards already in your deck


Here's the draft deck if you want Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as your commanders


That ends my very long post. Feel free the change anything you want about the decks I made, as they are only a first draft.

Good Luck,

Hex

you need to consider if you want some of the spells you have included or not. like Make a Stand or Rootborn Defenses . they are great cards, but they are a 1 time use, since they sdon't target anything, so they are a one and done deal. the spell needs to say "target creature or creatures" on it or it's no good unless you don't mind the one time use of course.

I would suggest dropping Silence for a playset of Path to Exile . You could also look at Dromoka's Command instead of Prey Upon . Heroic Intervention / Blossoming Defense could offer gc good protection. If would put one of those in instead of Make a Stand . Collected Company Is always a win in these kind of decks. Not sure what you would take out tho.

Even though this is probably bylbyiluilt with cards you have, I'd a card is a placeholder for something while you obtain it, it is better just to put in the card you want into the Tappedout deck. It makes it easier for people to give yu you advice.

Cool deck! What do you think about replacing Join Shields with Make a Stand ? It's cheaper and still gives your creatures indestructible. Also, Knight of Grace might be a cool knight to consider.
