Samut, the Tested Discussion
15 hours ago
Samut's ultimate can also find Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Village Bell-Ringer to end games. If the Bell-Ringer is too bad, add: Eager Beaver (if silver-borders); or Great Oak Guardian; or Sparring Mummy; or tried-and-true Zealous Conscripts.

I took a look! I love the inclusion of Samut, the Tested and Drover of the Mighty is more flexible than Otepec, and my choice between the two boiled down to whether it was better to get a cheaper finisher or not - and since Ghishath has haste already, it's more obvious which one is better. Replacing the red dino drop with a lower-cost white one like Kinjalli's Sunwing also seems better if the reliance on red is being reduced anyway to make the deck more early-to-midgame reliable - that's a strong inclusion that I've considered and am considering again now.
I was a bit surprised you didn't include more Cast Outs, since my experience has been that I cycle at least one per game, but I also don't have much experience with the card draw combo yet. I also would recommend at least one Wakening Sun's Avatar in the sideboard, expensive or not, since it can totally blow out some decks and your White base is strong enough to get away with it. But other than that, you've given me a lot to think about, thanks!

Warchief Giant is pretty great too. Send one of the token copies at the chosen enemy (for Saskia). He has to block or take 10 damage, and 5/3 is some killing power.
Also some good aggressive planeswalkers include Arlinn Kord Flip (good budget), maybe Domri Rade, Nahiri, the Harbinger, Samut, the Tested, Sarkhan Vol, and seriously consider Sorin, Solemn Visitor. His lifelink ability could be simply insane, and he's real cheap for a walker.
Keeping those fresh ideas coming.

Jimmy_Chinchila, how's this instead? I had dropped one of each of my removals (Savage Stomp and Abrade) for two Samut, the Tested because I'm sure the first one will attract removal like a moth to a light because Planeswalkers are rather uncommon in Standard. I really really like Rile just because of the double draw ability. Then, Abrade is just about needed for that artifact hate in game 1. I also really like the Ranging Raptors because if a card like Rile or Samut, the Tested gets shoved to the bottom because of Commune with Dinosaurs, I'm able to reshuffle them back into the deck. Though,I really do appreciate the suggestions! I probably won't do Sheltered Thicket for a while because it's $4-$5 a card.

Looks pretty solid, you could maybe go down 2 Abrade main board and add a Samut, the Tested and maybe a Sheltered Thicket. Samut makes Riles trample even more potent and basically forces a block to double the Enrage triggers. The Ultimate grabs 2 Tyrants and basically wins the game. I like Thicket to cycle if drawn later and its a nice T1 play with no 1-drops that turns on Rootbound T2 if no basics in opening hand.
Ive been experimenting with Lightning Strike, nice for final points of damage, and can even target your own Ranging if youve already used Stomp on it to get a counter, if you miss a land drop. Could maybe go down 1 Stomp and 1 Rile for a pair.
Keep up the Dino fight! +1

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.
As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.
As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.
As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.
And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.
Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.
