Atroxreaper , agreed, RDW is very scary but aggro will usually beat midrange (based on that triangle right? Aggro > Midrange > Control) But if luck is on our side, we got big butts and a sideboard to try and help (its that damn cant block clause that worries me!)

Titanco , I like Raptors because its a creature count towards the dinosaurs needed to make it a tribal deck, can attack if needed and deters attackers (by letting me ramp numerous times) , though grabbing any two lands is tempting, i dont think dinosaur decks want a big 5cmc sorcery. Thanks for suggesting it though! I will test it still.

xoorath Thats a great point if we do end up running Hour of Promise! I wonder what other lands we could grab as a pseudo sideboard sort of..

As for Snapping Sailback ... Thats actually a really neat trick, i worry if its good for limited or can run as a singleton in here, a 4/4 flash for 4 that gets bigger is damn nice. Im thinking maybe 3 Regisaur Alpha and 1 Snapping Sailback but i still think its just a really good limited bomb, but hey! this is what testing is for! thank you for suggesting :)

newly spoiled Snapping Sailback looks like a contender for the Regisaur Alpha slot. If you're already dropping hasty dinos because of Otepec Huntmaster, being able to respond same-turn to a wrath effect, or throw it in-front as a blocker it could be very strong.

Represents almost always less damage on board though, so I'm not sure. At least it survives a lot of spot removal, whereas regisaur dodges less and it's token doesn't dodge any.

Food for thought.
