Resilient Khenra Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, consider Resilient Khenra? He's not a Cat, but he's shown that he's very good with both Sacred and Adorned especially Adorned. Consider 4x Serpopard and 2x Pouncing, switch them? Serpopard is a much better Cat; Pouncing is very lackluster.
4x Sunpetal Grove will really help the manabase. If you can't afford Sunpetal then consider 4x Tranquil Expanse? Oath of Ajani I think is putting too much stress on the current manabase. Adding more Selesnya dual lands will help. Canopy Vista is not Standard legal if you're playing the deck in Standard have to replace it with another land.
Consider cutting Oath for some more two drop creature removal? Gideon's Reproach is an option it's better than Impeccable Timing as is Seal Away or more Compulsory Rest is also fine. Consider Prepare // Fight or Synchronized Strike? These cards are good with Pride Sovereign because they can untap it after it's exerted and give it a pump. Initiate's Companion has nice synergy with Pride, but it's weak and has to do combat damage to a player to get to untap Pride. Can't count on using it's ability to untap Pride want other cards that can.
Good luck with your deck.

Jimmy_Chinchila These are some great suggestions! I'm going to stray away from using Carnage Tyrant because I'd prefer the deck be less expensive, and with Rhonas the Indomitable skyrocketing, It is a lot more challenging. I don't want to go the Multani/land route that you're taking, but Territorial Allosaurus is likely going to make it into my sideboard as a 3 or 4 of. I am thinking of putting the Rhonas's Monument's in the mainboard and going a faster ramp deck with pumping power. I may also throw Resilient Khenra into my sideboard for counterspell/discard matchups.

Carnage Tyrant is the best stomper around, but its pricey. Youd also need to go up a few lands, probably should anyways. Arch of Orazca 1x is nice for late game gas. Scavenger Grounds would also be good since you dont use your graveyard but lots of other popular decks do.
I dont care much at all for Natuarlize mainboard, it does nothing against a lot of decks. Plus you can use Thrashing Brontodon since its also attached to an oversized body.
Keep up the Stompin! +1

rpie4444 You are totally right about that one, indeed sir. Since I forgot it is sorcery speed, it will not be able to react to Resilient Khenra at all and buff it. That might slide some people's opinion towards Merfolk Branchwalker as a point of fact.

Because you only have maybe 10 creatures it affects that are <4 cost, none which are 1 cost. Even a single tribal enchantment is enough to make a deck's creatures 90% tribal, so I would think that even a single enchantment which affects everything except dorks is enough to make you want 90% non-dorks. Yet, you only have 60% non-dorks, or 50% non-dorks with <4 cost.
The counters are good. I don't think they have much synergy with Rishkar since he generally makes enough counters to put on everyone but himself. And I think it's too slow to be better than other options. It's like a suspend 2 honor of the pure with downside, namely that it doesn't apply to creatures that enter the battlefield after it applies.
Some other options: Resilient Khenra, Merfolk Branchwalker, Heart of Kiran like the current stompy decks are using. Or Saproling Migration, Broken Bond if you want to try something new (neither are especially synergistic, just especially strong).

Fun Resilient Khenra trick: Cast the Khenra, target it with a power boosting mechanic IN RESPONSE like Blossoming Defense or Hashep Oasis and you'll get even MORE of a boost to whatever the Resilient Khenra's target is. That means its potential to boost something already on the board by +4/+4 or more for three mana.

@x12721 I did factor in Rhonas's Monument, but the Song of Freyalise beefs up your ramp faster, and adds on a powerful punch at the end after playtesting it. You can choose to swap out the monument for the song, or go with the song. I will add the Rhonas's Monument to the Maybeboard bc I did play through those HEAVILY in testing against several decks. The Merfolk Branchwalker was a very, very, strong consideration as well over the Resilient Khenra but I went with the khenras simply because of the burst potential. The branchwalkers are near and dear to my heart, and a great two drop in most all situations, but I was shooting for more firepower out of the gate. Turn one, play a Llanowar Elves and turn two can be a Resilient Khenra on your elves to swing for three if you're lacking a Steel Leaf Champion. If you do hit a champion you can use the Blossoming Defense and Resilient Khenra at in combination to smash your opponent for 10 damage turn three.
