Regal Behemoth Discussion
1 week ago
Onlytruereject, I saw that Game Knights #14 video you referenced in your updates, it's a shame that Craig didn't win that game. I didn't watch the whole thing though, need to go back and do that. As for what I think of your updates? They're good. I can definitely see your deck becoming more cohesive and focused. I'd characterize it's current build as a Timmy Aggro build. Just the biggest and baddest creatures swinging their weight around on the battlefield. Scary to say the least. The primary drawback of this deck is the lack of protection, and speed...as dinos are inherently slow, but with more ramp that can definitely help lessen the blow.
All in all, I think this is good build. A different take on Zacama rather than my tribal combo based idea. Honestly, I think it's more practical than my own as you use good naya creatures while not forcing yourself to use Dinos. One mana doubler that i'll toss out as a suggestion is Regal Behemoth. It's also now officially a dino! But, it's also a viable option besides vorinclex, but it doesn't quite have the neat land tapping. I am curious about including Illusionist's Bracers as well. The synergy between those and alot of those Enrage abilities (as well as Zacama's) seems like it'd be a worthwhile inclusion.

Regal Behemoth is a nice budget addition, if you want another mana doubling source. Getting Monarch on the table always makes a game more fun as well.

Nicely done! This is one of the best Gishath decks I've seen. There are some similarities with my own Gishath deck haha. I have a few suggestions that I think could add something to yours.
Worldly Tutor is tailor made for the Gishath deck as a cheaper version of Congregation at Dawn. I like it because I can sometimes play it on the same turn as I play Gishath, unlike Congregation. Worldly Tutor and Congregation are both great cards though, and redundant here in a productive way. I usually grab Zetalpa, Primal Dawn because it's such a board presence with Indestructible. Maybe cut Zendikar Resurgent because it's expensive to cast, requires casting creatures to draw cards, and you've already got Mirari's Wake and Regal Behemoth.
I dunno what else you would cut but I gotta tell ya, Tooth and Nail for Xenagos, God of Revels and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight with Gishath, Sun's Avatar is really freaking insane. Throw in some double strike and game over. Game over.
On a cheaper note, I cut all my Signets in favor of more 2 mana ramp spells for Mirari's Wake, Zacama, Primal Calamity, and Regal Behemoth. You could still add Farseek (do it), Into the North, and Khalni Heart Expedition. Coalition Relic has been my most valuable mana rock.
Anyway, awesome job! Keep it up.

Oh yeah whoops, I don't know why I said 8. My group runs a lot of burn, so that's why the low toughness is a problem :/.
I don't run Regal Behemoth because I don't like the big, shiny, target being the monarch puts on me, and after I've been beat up a little, I'm just left with a 5/5 trample. And yeah, the ramp does synergize with a few of the cards, I hadn't really noticed that. I used to run Explosive Vegetation, but I felt like I didn't really need it, though it might find it's way back in the list. Sakura-Tribe Elder is also a pretty good option, I'll look into that

If flyers aren't a problem then they're probably an opportunity :) Just saying. Aurelia, the Warleader is 6 mana, not 8, but I see your meaning. For Aurelia and Gisela, I wouldn't consider their toughness a liability though. Just don't block with them or attack someone who can block and kill them. Usually it's pretty easy to find someone to attack with Aurelia because she's Flying.
OH! I just realized that you don't have Regal Behemoth on your list! It's been errata'd as a dinosaur! I opted for land ramp instead of the Signets in order to maximize the potential for Regal Behemoth, Mirari's Wake, Temple of the False God, Khalni Heart Expedition, and Zacama, Primal Calamity. You could still add Sakura-Tribe Elder, Nature's Lore, and Into the North if you want more 2 mana land ramp. Explosive Vegetation is also a great option for 4 mana.

Nice work. I appreciate your curve especially. For my Gishath deck I dropped all the Signets for land ramp to maximize Zacama, Primal Calamity, Mirari's Wake, and Regal Behemoth. I still have some mana rocks but they're focused on higher impact such as Coalition Relic (card is bonkers), Thran Dynamo, and Mana Vault. I would definitely add Worldly Tutor to your deck list as another version of Congregation at Dawn.

Sick dinos dude definitely got that enrage going on here. Only suggestions would probably be to fit Pyrohemia in there and find space for Regal Behemoth (it became a dinosaur after Rivals came out) since it's card draw and a color fixing Mirari's Wake just for you. Also suggest switching out Soul's Majesty for Rishkar's Expertise, its one green more but has way more value with the free 5 cmc spell.
