Ranging Raptors Discussion
6 days ago
Okay so I played a Zacama, Primal Calamity with a Forerunner of the Empire and Ranging Raptors on the table. Zacama enters, forerunner triggers, raptor triggers for a tapped land. If all these things happen at the same time does the land from raptor untap after being placed because of zacama?

Thanks for all the suggestions! I did origionally have Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker included but took him out as I couldn't justify having him in if not for the infinite combos lol. Will definitely take a look at fitting in Ranging Raptors and Nightshade Peddler as I can see them going really well with this list. I'm at least sideboarding Stoneforge Mystic as well!

One card I love with Marath is Nightshade Peddler, as giving Marath deathtouch turns his ability into "Remove one counter from Marath, Destroy target creature" (as you no doubt know given Basilisk Collar's inclusion). I also like to run the Birthing Pod line with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make infinite tokens, but as you mentioned preferring to play a bit more casually that infinite combo may be a bit much for your playgroup (depending). Ranging Raptors is another card I like with Marath, ping it and ramp into next week. Stoneforge Mystic can be good to fetch up you equipment cards.

And you could really use some Savage Stomp

I'm just going to point our a few things that seem a little off to me.
1) Producing white mana for Zacama, Primal Calamity's life gain ability won't happen without Drover of the Mighty. Unclaimed Territory only produces colored mana for creature SPELLS of the chosen type, not abilities.
The solution to my first problem looks rather simple. Cut some number of Forests and mountains (probably one of each, maybe two mountains) and replace them with Plains. You have several cards that search for basic lands and adding white mana to the list of possible targets those can hit ensures you'll have it if and when you need it.
For my second problem I haven't looked enough at what cards are available to you to know an easy solution. Perhaps you adjust the creatures you're running so that you have more with Enrage and up the number of targets for Rile. On the other hand maybe you drop Rile altogether and replace it with something else, maybe Dinosaur Stampede.

Okay, so this deck looks like it has potential. If I were you, I'd take out Gift of Paradise and move the Haze of Pollens to the sideboard. I'd put in another Polyraptor and two more Forerunner of the Empire to make your combo more prominent.
Then I'd recommend making the mana-base more efficient by taking out all the Stone Quarrys and Tranquil Expanses and replacing them with Inspiring Vantages and/or Scattered Groves and/or Sunpetal Grove. The Rootbound Crag is good. Maybe take the Evolving Wildss out and put in another and maybe two Sheltered Thickets.
Renegade Map and Luxa River Shrine can go. If you're looking for mana-fetching or life-gain, look no further than Ranging Raptors and Deathgorge Scavenger. Carnage Tyrant is good, too, if you have the money.
As far as sideboarding, Dinosaur Stampede is good, I'm not a dino guy so you'd have to make your own, but I'd suggest some more removal in your sideboard.
I hope some of these suggestions are useful. Good luck. Try to sleeve this up and play tonight or next week at your LGS. You got dis.

So I just got the rest of the cards in the mail Tuesday and have now played one round against a typical Naya Dino deck today. The only round I've ever played with the deck. I outpaced him in the first game, and thinned his creatures down enough to just brutally keep swinging. I Supernatural Staminad my German Scrapheap Scrounger twice, both times to kill Ranging Raptors, it was a good call. Anyway, I lost the other two games. I ran out of steam and adding a Walk the Plank and three Ammit Eternals and taking out a Swamp and something else didn't help, though I was able to perform with only 21 lands. Anyway, I look forward to mastering my deck tomorrow and winning the tournament.
P.S.I got revenge immediately afterward by playing a round of EDH with my Zur the Enchanter deck. Got a Necropotence out on turn 4, paid 20 life immediately (had a Thought Vessel out), took three extra turns with Expropriate (using a shitton of mana-rocks), had Authority of the Consuls, Propaganda, Ghostly Prison out, and Nevermored his Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Then I promptly swung game with a Blightsteel Colossus and Whispersilk Cloak. Revenge is sweet when Zur is involved.
