Shake the Foundations Discussion

I have Shake the Foundations in my sideboard already. I guess I just forgot to update on here. I use it against decks that are heavy on tokens, like merfolk and saprolings.

Shake the Foundations = literal free enrage trigger at instant speed, since it replaces itself.

Ok I feel I should mention that the deck isn't strictly a "combo" deck, I don't appreciate super uninteractive games where either I win by getting my deck to go off before you kill me or I don't and lose. And yes, Fiery Cannonade is likely a strictly better early sweeper, but the draw on Shake the Foundations means that it will never be a dead draw, plus it will never kill anything on my side which is nice. That said, Fiery Cannonade will be a great sideboard card once I get around to actually making one lol.

ok ive done this deck before but definately drop Grazing Whiptail to at least sideboard, if not cut completely and run 4 Circuitous Route. drop Polyraptor to a two of, since you are gonna tutor it up anyway with the forerunner.

with no indestructible, best you going to get is 8 raptors per 1 forerunner. adding in assure/assemble gives you an indestructive outlet to target your forerunner to make many many dinos. I alsp reccomend filling those two empty spots with Regisaur Alpha so those polyraptors can swing asap! do be careful of Settle the Wreckage though.

over Shake the Foundations how about 2 Cosmotronic Wave? clears tokens and allows alpha striking! the other 2 slots could be 2 Drover of the Mighty and if you dropped 1 forerunner and 1 otepec huntmaster to then complete the set.

i think this will allpw you to ramp well into polyraptor this way.

hope the comments help! here is my polyraptor combo deck for reference

Polyraptor Squared

Standard* Kizmetto


you could also look into a Fog based strat.

It's not a terrible thought.

The Instant speed and draw of Shake the Foundations tips it over the edge for me.

I'll keep Chainwhirler in mind.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Hey Argy! Nice to see you making decks again! Have you considered Goblin Chainwhirler in place of Shake the Foundations?

Have you tried Protean Raider and Shake the Foundations? Maybe sideboard some graveyard recursion such as Ghitu Chronicler.

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.
