Runic Armasaur Discussion

Hi! Came here from FB.

This is very good for a budget deck! You definitely get a +1 from me :)

Some minor suggestions, however: If you want a cheap power boost, there's very little better than O-Naginata. Unless your meta is VERY heavy on artifact destruction, I'd rather have Coalition Relic or Chromatic Lantern over Darksteel Ingot. I do feel you need more sources of draw; Heartwood Storyteller, Sylvan Library, and the new Runic Armasaur can help you keep up with more card-advantage-heavy decks. Heroic Intervention is a great way to protect against board wipes. Beast Within is something I'd run over Chaos Warp, personally. For cuts, I'd recommend against Bounty of the Luxa (takes too long to do anything substantive) and Runechanter's Pike (I don't feel you have enough instants/sorceries to justify it).

Hope this helps! :)

Experiment: Sylvan Caryatid out for Runic Armasaur. This was a suggestion from the guy I go to FNM Modern events with.

Initially I thought "I can't get rid of Caryatid, how am I gonna cast X?!". Well it turns out I don't actually use Caryatid that often, especially now that I added Eldritch Evolution and cut Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive down to a one-of.

Getting some extra draw would be great, but having another 5/5 on the field is amazing. Whenever I had to block with Caryatid it was almost always a chump block where I lost the Caryatid after. With the Armasaur I can deal that 2 damage regardless of my boardstate, block even bigger creatures, and still be doing 5 damage whenever Doran, the Siege Tower or Assault Formation comes out.

Let me know what you think!

I'd definitely add some more dinosaurs if I were you, so you have a higher chance of getting some off Gishath.

Etali, Primal Storm and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn maybe?

Don't forget Regal Behemoth is technically a dinosaur now and is a lot of fun. Thrashing Brontodon and the new Runic Armasaur are solid too.

Oh I like Runic Armasaur! I'll have to pick that one up from core 19. Thanks, Kingtalk!

If you're looking to trigger 'Enrage' I think you'll appreciate what Caltrops has to offer ;). One of my favorite cards in my Dino Deck, I'll link to the deck tech if you want to peek at it. I built it with 'Enrage' in mind

Life Finds a Way

I've since added in Runic Armasaur from Core 19

BlackyMTG, there actually isn't.

Sadly, there is almost nothing in M19 that is good enough for the deck. Runic Armasaur comes the closest to being usable here if you need to put -1/-1 counters on one of your own creatures.

Got a promo Vivien Reid, which was sweet. Ended up R/G with a slight black splash. I decided blue and black weren’t deep enough as a main color, and red was deepest. Green beat out white mainly because of Vivien and Runic Armasaur.

Went 2-2. Deck was strong, but slow. Could easily go over the top of other slower decks, but stugled against faster clocks.

Nothing special in the 2 prize packs.

Wasn’t super hyped for the set because of all the constructed hate cards. So naturally, they were half my rares (Infernal Reckoning, Amulet of Safekeeping, Detection Tower). If I’m going to get an unplayable rare for limited, at least make it something I might actually use, like Scapeshift or Crucible of Worlds

I really like the deck. Dinosaurs are by far my top fave tribe. Zacama was someone I thought about making my commander, but I just never did.

Ask for spells; some good enrage enablers are Pyrohemia, Raging Regisaur, and Raging Swordtooth. Some other spells would be Desert Sandstorm, Fiery Confluence, Hurly-Burly, Rain of Embers, Rain of Blades, Shake the Foundations, Seismic Shudder, Volcanic Spray, or Tremor.

If you want to have a lot of fun with enrage, give your creatures indestructable and go to town. Vivien Reid, Dauntless Escort, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon's Phalanx, Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, Heroic Intervention, and Soul of New Phyrexia.

Some other good dinosaurs you might want to think about running are Runic Armasaur and Gigantosaurus from M19. Territorial Allosaurus is okay if you are having issues with getting on the field.

I personally have a Gishath deck: Ixalan Park (#1 Gishath Commander) V.2.0

I didn't go the full blown enrage mode, but I might give that a try. Hope my suggestions helped.
