Shake the Foundations Discussion

This is a good start! Here are a few suggestions.

  1. Make sure you run 38 lands. You mana curve is pretty high and your commander is expensive so you want to be playing lands every turn.

  2. Cards to remove: Altar of Dementia , Arcum's Astrolabe , Prying Blade , Ephemerate , Huatli's Spurring , Shake the Foundations , Fight with Fire , Strength of the Pack , Form of the Dinosaur , any of the weaker dinosaurs or non-dinosaur creatures.

  3. Consider adding removal/boardwipes like Fumigate , Swords to Plowshares , Oblivion Ring .

  4. More card draw Shamanic Revelation , Guardian Project are a couple off the top of my head.

Hey, nice version of Atla.

Mirror Entity is busted with Atla; it's a Dino and an Egg. Regal Behemoth is a very good Dino/mana doubler. It's Lizard creature type was errata to Dinosaur. In multiplayer Commander Runic Armasaur can be a repeatable source of draw.

Cards to consider cutting:

Are you using Heartstone in a combo that I don't see? I ask because it only works with two creatures (Atla and Zacama) in the entire deck. You have many repeatable sources to trigger enrage that these one time effect spells are not needed.

Upgrades within the budget to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Instead of Dual Shot maybe Shake the Foundations would work better to help control hexproof merfolk.

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.
