Samut, Tyrant Smasher Discussion
1 week ago
Actually, I will give a few thoughts.
The Immortal Sun - What does this do for your deck or game plan? It tries to do a lot but instead only does a little of a bunch of things for too high of a cost.
Decimate - Zacama, Primal Calamity should take care of most of your artifact and enchantment destruction on his own, making this redundant, but this card also comes with the unfortunate problem that you can ONLY cast it if you have viable creature, artifact, enchantment, AND land targets. If you are missing any one of the 4 it's a dead card, and if one of those 4 is your own then you're forced to destroy that. Now, if you find that you really need more artifact and enchantment hate look into cards like Krosan Grip or Force of Vigor .
Savage Stomp - Why would you risk your creatures with this? If you are able to target them then you already have removal in the form of Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares , not to mention Zacama, Primal Calamity ability to deal damage to creatures. If your opponent has a combat trick then you just lost your creature. It's a gimmicky card and I think there are better things you can do with the card slot in your deck. For example, Aggravated Assault or Reckless Assault will give you multiple combats which will really let you bring the full power of your dinosaurs to bear without giving your opponents time to recover.
Priest of the Wakening Sun - Why? If you need a fetch then run cards like Worldly Tutor , Finale of Devastation or Chord of Calling . If you need lifegain there are plenty of better sources. This just reveals cards in your hand to your opponents, gains a tiny bit of life, and kills an entire turn with your expensive fetch.
Atzocan Seer - Skip the returning Dinosaurs. You're a creature deck, and a big one at that. Just focus on constantly dropping big creatures and hitting your opponent, putting so much pressure on them that they don't have time to worry about strategy. Aggro decks don't really worry about their graveyard. As for the mana, you'd be far better served with Birds of Paradise or Sylvan Caryatid , or if you go non-budget then Bloom Tender .
Gigantosaurus - I'm honestly really not a fan of anything that costs 5 of the same color. This pretty much kills anything else you were planning on doing on your turn, which is absolutely not what you want to have happen. Sure it's a 10/10, but it's really not worth that downside, especially without trample. Look at Carnage Tyrant for a fantastic alternative.
Kinjalli's Sunwing - This draws unnecessary hate and really doesn't help your game out that much. You have a deck of giant dinosaurs. This shouldn't be an issue. If you really feel you need it then look into Authority of the Consuls or Urabrask the Hidden instead.
Runic Armasaur - Too specific and unreliable. There are better uses for the card slot.
Sakura-Tribe Elder - While a good card, your deck can't take full advantage of this and would be better off running land fetches like Tempt with Discovery , Nature's Lore , or Skyshroud Claim , all of which are better and come out untapped.
Samut, Voice of Dissent - Why in heaven's name are you running this? This card is awful? If it's for the haste then there are tons of better cards. Look at Fervor , Rhythm of the Wild , or Fires of Yavimaya . Even Urabrask the Hidden would be a better way to spend 5 mana. Is it for the untap effect? There are still much better options such as Seedborn Muse . This card burns 5 mana for no good reason. No. Just no.
Shalai, Voice of Plenty - Meh. I'd run Leyline of Sanctity or Privileged Position instead. Asceticism , Archetype of Endurance , and Sterling Grove are other good options. All are harder to hit and kill. It's nice but overall i'd run the alternatives instead.
Shifting Ceratops - Doesn't do enough. It's nice but not good enough overall.
Territorial Hammerskull - While not inherently bad, it's also just "meh". It's okay. I'd rather have cards that give your creatures trample and just march your dinosaurs through your opponents, and/or bigger and better creatures.
Jaya, Venerated Firemage - Why? This is a waste of a good slot. Run Warstorm Surge and get a far better effect than her. If you want more damage then run Dictate of the Twin Gods . She's really not worth it.
Samut, Tyrant Smasher - This card is awful. Run any, and I mean any haste enabler instead. Her negative is awful and her passive is better on any other card. Honestly, run Xenagos, God of Revels . He's amazing, gives haste, doubles a creature's power, and add's their power to their toughness.
Temple of the False God - I've taken this out of most, if not all, of my decks by now. It's not great honestly. It seems really good, but if you get it early game then it's a dead land that stares up into you and slowly seeps the joy out of your soul, and if you get it late game then it's just an extra mana that really doesn't matter to you.

Hey man I've been playing around more with this deck concept the last couple days & thought I'd share a few ideas I've come across:
If you want to go with a more combo-oriented route, Siren Stormtamer fits in really nicely, giving you more one-drops & protecting the combo pieces. Also, adding haste to the equation really helps make the combo faster & harder to stop since you can play Vannifar, pod into Timestream, and activate all in one turn, plus you can still go infinite even if Vannifar can't bring Timestream back on the turn it activates. Samut, Tyrant Smasher is the only real enabler in these colors, but it was actually pretty nutty when I was playtesting with it since it also makes the dorks pay for themselves.
For the less combo-oriented approach, I actually took your idea on Muldrotha in my deck but without Timestream, just because it's really good with the rest of the deck. One particular interaction that's pretty insane is with Gruesome Scourger . With Vannifar & Yarok out alongside just a couple dorks, you can play/tutor Scourger for a double-digit hit, then pod it into Muldrotha & play it again from the yard for a total of 20+ damage in 1-2 turns depending on your mana. I was already really liking Scourger as a finisher before adding in Muldrotha but the ability to quickly recur it makes it so much better. Also won a couple grindier playtest games thanks to Muldrotha + Plaguecrafter forcing a sac every turn.

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).
I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.
Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:
2x New Horizons
2x Mana Geode
The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

Samut, Tyrant Smasher might be a good 4 drop that allows you to not spend Mana to cast the haste spells. Also there may be some other better haste spells that cost 1 red, but besides that, deck looks really cool!

Samut, Tyrant Smasher isn't legal in your deck... still counts as a red card even with hybrid mana.

vinny01 Samut, Tyrant Smasher seems a little slow at 4 mana, this deck can't really afford to take a turn off to play it. also its -1 turns off calamity for one of your creatures. i have Samut's Sprint so that you can sneak in some extra damage at instant speed after calamity triggers and more importantly scry 1

Hero of Precinct One just gets rekt by a single shock and Heroic Reinforcements is pretty much a dead draw when behind on the board while Samut, Tyrant Smasher + Swiftblade Vindicator and the haste is pretty gg
