+1 from me! If you were going for a gimmick deck then dinosaurs is a pretty awesome option! I wanted to build pirates; but honestly dinosaurs got so much more support wowww

Honestly, if your ultimate gameplan is to "cast commander, beat face" then many of the other dinosaurs are just going to slow you down. Gishath, Sun's Avatar is arguably better for a dedicated dino deck imo

I feel like the dream play is Zacama, Primal Calamity immediately into Akroma's Memorial/Xenagos, God of Revels and swing... or just wiping everyone of problematic enchantments/artifacts/creatures lmao

It might be smart to run 30+ creatures because how often are you really casting a 9CMC commander?! Depends on where you take the deck. Do you want beaters or rampers? Wood Elves, Solemn Simulacrum, Kor Cartographer, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc etc. I assume you don't want it to feel exactly like Darigaaz Reincarnated/Maelstrom Wanderer which is why I suggested Otepec Huntmaster&friends. Just Brainstorming

You have a bunch of mana doublers which is awesome, including the updated Regal Behemoth that's a mf dinosaur! Plus sorcery ramp. There's a decent spot removal package and some of the auto include boardwipes. A couple dinos have removal tacked on as well. Spellbreaker Behemoth is sweet. I love Samut and the haste enablers. Fervor is meh. You have a lot of really cool stuff here tho. You even snuck in Craterhoof & Avenger. There's a light token theme here which doesn't fit. Idk.

If you're trying to thin some of the fat it would be the rando 5-8 cmc spells. Crested Herdcaller, Thundering Spineback, Raging Swordtooth, Godsire, ... It's so hard. Probably lose two enchantments and two instants/sorceries and you'll only have to cut seven creatures XD

The crossroads for me is the Gishath dino aggro or Zacama goodstuff combo. It'll be cool to ultimately see what your mind imagines!

So when it works Militia Bugler is a great addition to the deck, but it seems like half the time I am either playing him and sending other important pieces to the bottom, or I have the Forerunner of the Empire already so I end up holding onto it so I don't lose those pieces and it becomes somewhat of a dead card in my hand. The more I think about it the more I realize that what you said about Otepec Huntmaster (which was true), could also be said about Militia Bugler. There's only one super important card we are looking for with him and only two other cards he could grab if he doesn't find it.

Now I am playing around with different card draw options to dig for the Forerunner of the Empire and/or Truefire Captain Currently I'm trying Rogue's Gloves (equipped to a Sky Terror) and Risk Factor.

I like Rogue's Gloves because it is repeatable and somewhat reliable. I have mixed feelings about Risk Factor. It's really good on paper, but maybe not the most reliable way to draw cards. If someone played it against me the only way I would let them draw three cards would be if I had less than 6 life or so. It is a really reliable way to deal four damage to your opponent for 3 mana, if it doesn't, oh well, at least you get three whole cards out of it.

With that in mind, I am not super worried about doing early damage to folks, since the combos we're trying to hit kind of don't care what your life total is when they fire off. So maybe Risk Factor isn't the solution I need.

My next idea would be to run Tormenting Voice. I kind of feel good about it. We'll see how it do.

I think my fear with Militia Bugler would be sending a Truefire Captain or Bellowing Aegisaur to the bottom. It's definitely worth a play test. I swapped out Lightning Strike for Otepec Huntmaster. Bugler could easily fit in that slot instead I think.

PauperPower Thanks for the suggestions :)

I'll take out Otepec Huntmaster for Skyshroud Claim

Zenidkar resurgent... ehh.. maybe. I'm trying to keep the average cmc down in the deck.

You're welcome, man! I know rotation is probably a big concern, but building a R/G dino's deck as a shell with Goreclaw and Unsealing seems super efficient as well. A lot of them are heavy hitters on there own that just get better with the few support cards there are. Regisaur Alpha, Drover of the Mighty, and Otepec Huntmaster are the best ones, but I wouldn't recommend huntmaster in anything that isn't an all-in dino strategy.

Find a spot for Helm of the Host. It could combo well in this deck.

regisaur alpha and Etali, Primal Storm are prime subjects for dawning the helm. If Regisaur wears it, you'll get it AND another trample dinosaur each turn. They'll both have haste! With a Forerunner of the Empire on the battlefield, you could either put the helm on another dragon and chip away at the opponent each turn OR, if you know you'll be playing dinosaurs, you can put the helm on Forerunner and deal more and more damage each turn.

Deathgorge Scavenger would give you consistant life gain, but that's not quiet as good. If you have a Regisaur on the battlfield, you could opt to give each new Deathgore +1/+1 and swing with haste, but... why would you not put Helm on Regisaur???

Rhonas the Indomitable would LOVE the helm! The second Rhonas will activate the first Rhonas and they can buff each other!

While equiping Otepec Huntmaster and Kinjalli's Caller would theoretically make dropping big bombs gradually easier, this is a silly idea. The helm requires almost as much mana as your bombs anyway. By the time these combos would be up and running, you would have a dinosaur on the battlefield who is a better target for the helm. These combos might do well in a commander deck though. Your commander tax wouldn't matter!

I'm thinking of getting back in standard with a Dinasaur deck :)

If I were to build upon your deck I would add some ramping with 4 Drover of the Mighty, 4 Otepec Huntmaster, 4 Thunderherd Migration and have at least 23 lands.

For removal I would choose 4 Abrade(Lightning Strike works too) and maybe a couple of Reckless Rage.

For draw Commune with Dinosaurs.

And for the rest, Dinasaurs :)
