Tectonic Rift Discussion

Allethuz on Kalemne's Giant Clan

Savage Beating, Feudkiller's Verdict, Mother of Runes, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Bastion Protector, Tectonic Rift, Crush Underfoot, Bearer of the Heavens, Quarry Colossus, Kalemne's Captain, Sigarda's Aid would be good good options to consider; but they all depend on how tribal you want your deck to be or how commander centered you want it to play as. A deck like this was the first one I made, a giant exclusive tribal deck. But that was my playstyle and likes, it all depends on how you like your game to run!

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.

Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cover of Darkness, Metallic Mimic, and Vanquisher's Banner all help out your chosen creature type well.

Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.

Dont forget Smallpox or Stone Rain or even Tectonic Rift

I feel like you probably wouldn't want to dilute your main strategy of playing huge creatures by adding too many support cards. Giving everyone trample but having no hydras to punch with is no fun. I think that between five and seven is a pretty good number, as you should draw at least one most games but not end up stuck with too many. Personally I wouldn't count Garruk Wildspeaker, though, since he has to survive an entire turn just to do it once, and can only do it once every five turns maximum, even if your opponents generously leave him alone.

With that said there's a few more ways to get damage through that you might want to consider if you find that your opponents often have too much blocking ability.

Siege Behemoth and Predatory Focus are basically super-trample. Your creatures will still take damage and you could play Dolmen Gate to mitigate this, of course, but your creatures tend to be huge anyway so it probably won't be necessary.

One fun card is Hydra Omnivore, which lets you choose the opponent with the weakest defence to attack, but deal damage to everyone regardless. It has no specific synergy with your general, but can sometimes be an instant win with Xenagos, God of Revels and a weakened opponent or something to give it trample.

There's also plenty of cards in red that just flat out prevent your enemies from blocking, like Barrage of Boulders, which also clears tokens, Destructive Tampering, which can also remove annoying artefacts, Seismic Elemental, which is also another beater, Tectonic Rift, which is probably an upgrade to your Stone Rain even with the cost increase, or Wave of Indifference, which works well with your commander.

On a different topic, Omnath, Locus of Mana is also kind of borderline for your budget, but especially if he's out early he lets you stockpile excess mana between casting fatties. Unfortunately, Rosheen's is colourless and can't be stored.

A Temur ramp deck with Rosheen and Kruphix, God of Horizons would be interesting...

Another ramp option is Animist's Awakening, which should do well with Rosheen.

Speaking of X spells, I'm very surprised not to see Genesis Hydra on the list. Enshrined Memories may also be a solid draw card.

Finally, a very good card to play with all your big tramplers is Bow of Nylea, because of how deathtouch and trample interact. Basically each enemy creature will only be able to block a single point of damage. It also has utility uses and if you are out of cards at least lets you use your mana to grow your creatures a bit each turn.

Sorry for the wall of text. Hope this is at least a little bit helpful.
