Rhonas the Indomitable Discussion
14 hours ago
I would probably go with 1 Kopala, Warden of Waves, 1 Herald of Secret Streams, and 1 or 2 Shapers of Nature in your mainboard if you are wanting to go the unblockable route. You are going to have to protect your creatures, which Kopala does decently well, and then get counters on everyone, which Shapers is excellent at doing. There's a lot of artifact hate and Metallic Mimic may not last very long once it gets on to the battlefield.
I've been playing a very aggro merfolk deck since Ixalan dropped. The biggest difference is that my deck is BUG. As they were in Ixalan, merfolk were on the cusp of great but needed help. I added black to have access to Winding Constrictor, Fatal Push, & Vraska's Contempt. I also don't run straight fish. I include Rhonas the Indomitable, Nissa, Steward of Elements, Prowling Serpopard, Narnam Renegade, and Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage. Nissa & Jace do a great job of filtering the top of your deck when you have them both on the field. I had better luck with them than I did with Search for Azcanta Flip.
Good luck with your build! I can't wait to see how Standard shakes out over the next few months.

If you're on a budget, try using Cultivator's Caravan since it's a 5/5 and a mana rock! Potentially decreasing the cost of Ghalta, Primal Hunger by 5 and paying for 1 green. This allows you to dodge board wipes while having an easily accessible creature.
Although your deck is cool in concept, is it fast enough to be able to hold on its own without going on the defensive?(such as against mono red and red/black pirates or even Merfolk since I would expect those to show up)

Mind checking it out? :D Ghalta, Primal Fling

This deck looks sweet. After playing with Golden Guardian Flip at prerelease I decided I wanted to build a deck around him. I too thought about using small deathtouch creatures along with Rhonas the Indomitable to easily flip the guardian. My only suggestion would be to maybe go down on the 4x Inventors' Fair due to it being legendary. I would highly recommend going down to 2 Fairs and 2 Field of Ruin. Ghalta, Primal Hunger might also be a good addition due to having so many high toughness creatures. I'm definitely going to sleeve this up and give it a try. +1 from me!

Firstly, thank you for your comment it has resulted in some well needed changes. I have included Sheltered Thicket and Pounce as I love the option to cycle and the instant speed. I am debating splashing white as you said as it opens up so many options. I like your deck very much, the energy still works well in it. I like the idea of Rhonas the Indomitable however I wouldn't benefit as much from Commune with Dinosaurs or Otepec Huntmaster, and I am not sure what to remove. I feel like 23 lands is borderline too much, but I will not know till playtesting.

I think it works well with Mana Dorks and Rhonas himself. For example:
In this scenario, if you don't miss land drops, you still have 2 mana available because of the mana dork.
The problem is what to put in the rest of the deck and consistency.

Nice build. I really like the inclusion of Samut, the Tested. I'm tinkering with a similar build, Dino Gruel, where I've also splashed black so I can include Cartouche of Ambition; lifelink works great with the fighting dinosaurs. I've also found that I could just as easily splash white for Squire's Devotion for the same effect, plus access to additional side board options.
For fighting, have you considered Pounce? It's not going to be as cheap as Savage Stomp with your dinosaurs, but I've found the instant speed to be very unexpected. In my build I am also running Rhonas the Indomitable, who doesn't get the discount with Savage Stomp. A particularly nasty combo is Pounce + Rhonas the Indomitable + Squire's Devotion . Cartouche of Strength also provides another fighting activation, plus trample.

I think that Greenbelt Rampager is necessary if you are the beatdown in the game, is cheap, hard to remove (also immune to Abrade/Shock/Lightning Strike). BUT since is not so easy to play ,i'v put only 2x in the main deck.
1 or 2 copy of Rhonas the Indomitable,paired with Prowling Serpopardcould be highly effective. Prowling Serpopard protects Rhonas from counterspells , meanwhile Rhonas is immediately able to attack or block since the Serpopard is a 4/3 and this on turn 3-4. Same if paired with Bristling Hydra.
I don't think that Hadana's Climb with "the mini-pummeler effect" is useful to the deck, the Pummeler is a win condition, but not the only one. You can win without the combo. (however is also hard to play Hadana's Climb in an aggro deck like this).
Verdurous Gearhulk can have some space in the Sidedeck probably,but i'm not sure.
