Awesome suggestions Apollo_Paladin, I really want to add 2x Pounce and 2x Thrive. Now for the part of deck building I struggle with the most...figuring out what to replace to keep it at a 60 card deck.

Neat, good synergies at work here. Only thing I can suggest is maybe look into some more general-use cards (you've already got a few in here, capitalize on that). Perhaps some creature-fighting options like Hunt the Weak or Pounce to give yourself a couple of outs against linchpins in an opponent's defenses. Seems like this deck just needs to get counters on creatures as fast as possible. Thrive is a must too in my opinion.

Trinidad868 only the latter 2 are legal in Standard currently, but if wanting more fight effects you could increase Stomp and add Prey Upon. Pounce is an instant version and is budget, but adding in Lightning Strike probably more useful. If adding more removal, I’d probably trim the top end stuff. A lot of the tweaking depends on what people playing at your LGS, there are Dinos for every situation!

Maybe use Pounce instead of prey upon. The instant speed makes a big difference. Less creature dependent possibilities would be Rapid Hybridization, Pongify or Beast Within.

Y3llowMustang, I can see the concern, although I included Pounce instead of Prey Upon so I can use it outside of my main phase. It doesn't matter to me that it costs more, since this deck doesn't exactly struggle with mana.

Hey, nice deck!

The advice I have is to play 4-ofs of both Adventurous Impulse and Grow from the Ashes. You have a very top-ended top end, and I think Chainwhirler will still be good enough to punish you for playing 4 Llanowar Elves. I'd personally take out the two Pounce, citing the fact that you don't care about playing answers because you're a stompy style deck, as well as 1 of each Aggressive Mammoth and Carnage Tyrant, since playing 6 5-CMC> game ending cards is a lot (I'm also throwing Vivien Reid in the game ender category, because, well let's be honest, she's nuts).

You talked about your worry about price in another comment, but it might be worth it to buy a playset of Hinterland Harbor to flex into UG Stompy, with Negate/Spell Pierce disruption and possibly Nezahal out of the board. Anyways, that's all, so good luck on your build!

Thanks again! Yeah, I definitely have a ton of fun playing this deck. I think a big part of it is playing stuff at instant speed, at the most annoying time for your opponent :D If you're gonna be fighting stuff (which is also super fun), I'll put in a good word for instants like Pit Fight Pounce or Mutant's Prey. Enjoy the brewing and good luck with the little one!

AjaniTheGreat I prefer that Pounce is Instant speed, while Rabid Bite is Sorcery speed.
