Territorial Allosaurus Discussion
1 week ago
For the two drop you may want to consider Elfhame Druid as it still serves to ramp green for you, and can help with the kicker of Territorial Allosaurus. I would suggest making some room for Ripjaw Raptor somewhere (even if its just in the SB to swap out Allosaurus) because this deck will let you drop him early, he is a big blocker against agro, and can give you cards quickly. Territorial Allosaurus can be good but I often find people hold it in hand to try and kick it, and that leads to slowing yourself down and falling behind

Very true, though after doing a little testing, Ancient Animus seems to be that card that I would either put into sideboard or not put in at all. I was thinking that placing three of Nature's Way into sideboard instead would be wise and worth a shot, and into a mainboard we can put Territorial Allosaurus making this deck a little more creature intensive. Let me know what you think about that, since my way of thinking is that Rhonas the Indomitable and Rhonas's Monument is enough of trample.
For the other remarks, I have 3 Thrashing Brontodon in the sideboard, I might be able to move them mainboard, but that would mean they would take a spot of Steel Leaf Champion (which is very bad) or Rhonas's Monument (which is more tolerable). I want to do more testing against current top decks to see how this turns out when its sideboarded.
I hate for some reason how Merfolk Branchwalker comes out in this deck. I am afraid to put Drover of the Mighty since if it is put in the mainboard I will have it constantly out on turn 2 and, thus, if opponent goes first (and most probably plays red) will land Goblin Chainwhirler and wipe my Drover of the Mighty. It is not that sad if they wipe my Llanowar Elves since I will have my Steel Leaf Champion on turn two before the Red Beast can come in. Yet I need replacement for Merfolk Branchwalker and since I dropped 3 Ancient Animus and put in only 2 Territorial Allosaurus, I will 4 spots open in the 2 drop spot.
Either way I will post my updates now and I will be grateful to hear your feedback.

Thanks for the info Boza, im going to take out Spore Swarm, but im going to keep Saproling Migration just because its handy to have to defend when I dont want to sacrifice more valuable cards like Elfhame Druid. I think ill head for more of a tall deck, so ill look into getting 4x Territorial Allosaurus as well as Untamed Kavu. I also removed the land and Elvish Visionary to go ahead and make it legal, I'm still yet to test this with my friends as most of them are out of state, but ill be sure to update with how it plays.
Boza on Kicker Deck

Your deck is like 96% standard legal, might as well go all the way. Otherwise, I like it - kicker is a great mechanic. 26 lands with 9 creatures that grant you mana are way too much. Go down 2 of each basic and add 4 Untamed Kavu.
Additionally kicker has two variants - wide or tall. Kavu goes well with either, but for example, Gruun is good in a "tall" deck (few strong creatures), while Saproling Migration is good in a "wide" deck (numerous small creatures you buff).
I would advise to choose one avenue or the other as going down both dilutes the focus of your deck. If you go wide, Wild Onslaught is a must-have. If you go tall, get some cards that large and in charge like Territorial Allosaurus.

True that. For the best decks, you gotta pony up. Oh, the eternal struggle of a magic player.
I took a look at all the Green/White creatures in Standard atm, and this is the list of creatures I would consider for a Dinosaur deck in these colors:
Priest of the Wakening Sun
Drover of the Mighty
Rhonas the Indomitable
Knight of the Stampede
Wakening Sun's Avatar
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
Ghalta, Primal Hunger
I would consider maybe focusing on the lower CMC Dinos to populate the majority of the deck and have Wakening Sun's Avatar as a finisher. Your curve is a little wonky, and you'll want to smooth it out a tad.

Looking pretty decent.
I might not maindeck Carnage Tyrant. It's obviously good against control, but it's very slow to come down. Since Ghalta, Primal Hunger is accelerated, Verdurous Gearhulk is usually the slowest creature you have after Tyrant, but it can drop 4 counters on someone else and affect the board immediately, so it's really 2 whole turns faster than Tyrant.
I moved away from Territorial Allosaurus eventually, but you should never be too sad with just a 5/5/ for 4. Real removal is hard to come by in Green.

Jimmy you still playing this deck? Have you thought about adding Llanowar Elves replacing Drover? Llanowar can be a turn faster. Elfhame Druid with Territorial Allosaurus and Grow from the Ashes also seems interesting. I know you like Elfhame this could a place for her. Due to the current Standard meta Thrashing Brontodon is a much better three drop Dino than Raptors. Great defense against aggro, can destroy one of Heart, History, Seal, Binding or Ballista. Playing Dinos, 4x Brontodon main deck seems very good.
