Pygmy Allosaurus Discussion
4 months ago
The following dinosaurs have appeared on Dominaria--each received errata to Dinosaur was it was added as a subtype.
That said, while they have appeared, I highly doubt we will see dinosaurs in this set. And that's fine--Dominaria should have Beasts and Kavu. Dinosaurs are not really right for the plane (or really most planes).

You could add Fungusaur and Magmasaur, maybe Pygmy Allosaurus, as they've been errata'd to be dinos (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/card-preview/royal-recipe-dinosaur-tribal-2017-09-06). Fungusaur actually has an enrage trigger too, and since most of your dinos are large, you could get a board wipe or enrage triggers from magmasaur.

Consider the dinosaurs that were errata'd to be dinos:
Old Fogey (depending how causal you are)
and finally Tyrranax

how about taking out a Ravenous Daggertooth and Pygmy Allosaurus for a Priest of the Wakening Sun (he is an early drop that gains you life and can tutor for dinos) and for an Animist's Awakening (ramps you more the more ramped up you are - good for a lategame hugeramp and then surprise them with your commander).

Thanks Antwaan33, I am currently running Pygmy Allosaurus as I believe that to be the best due to Swampwalk (but that is specific playgroup) and of course it is the original dinosaur. Putrid Raptor is black. Alpha Tyrranax is a vanilla creature and I want cards that impact the board state more at its cost. Deathmist Raptor does not synergize with this deck. Imperiosaur doesn't do much for the deck and will be pretty hard to cast. Tyrranax's ability doesn't do much for the deck, especially at its cmc. Dromosaur and Pangosaur are quite frankly terrible. Ridgetop Raptor, Ripscale Predator, and Shivan Raptor are decent but not standout spectacular. That leaves: Frenetic Raptor, which is fairly niche; Magmasaur, which fits quite well in my deck Enrage Enabled but not great in this list as here I am not focousing on Enrage that much; and Fungusaur, which I am currently looking for a place for.

We got the list of Creatures that are being errata'd to Dinosaur (source):

I've thought about Triassic Egg and honestly, what do I need it for in the deck? I don't have any expensive dinosaurs or any that I really want to keep on the battlefield at any cost. I can already return the deathtoucher. Also, it's really slow, I'd rather drop the Dingus Egg at 4 and then use the mana not for laying counters on my egg but instead destroying the enemies lands.
Another thing is the Pygmy Allosaurus, why would I "waste" space in the sideboard for a card that only has a use against black decks? Also I think the Pangosaur is more important as it works really well against stompy decks that don't run that many lands, while stompy decks are also more of a threat to this deck due to their faster aggro than black ones. I think I have enough of an answer to black with Lava Runner.
