Thrashing Brontodon Discussion

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.

Thanks for the reply, I'm glad I could help. As for the green splash I don't like the idea but for a super weird reason. The "problem" that I'd have is that Llanowar Elves and Drover of the Mighty are almost entirely better than Skirk Prospector and Wily Goblin for what you're using them for. Sure together they can turn 3 Etali, Primal Storm but the downside is they are the one-time-use version of their green counterparts. The thing is it makes using them probably correct despite diluting the spirit of what you're doing. Now if you follow that logic to its logical conclusion you end up just playing whatever net-deck is winning at the moment so maybe that's just me. Anyway if you're splashing a color just for enchantment hate maybe Thrashing Brontodon isn't correct as you'd need to have the manna base able to support the double green. Alternative options off the top of my head include Ixalan's Binding, Cast Out, Forsake the Worldly, Naturalize, Broken Bond, Crushing Canopy, Kefnet's Last Word, Negate or Spell Swindle. I must admit Carnage Tyrant is almost a good enough reason to go into green itself if you don't mind the hefty price tag.

Dr_Pleco You are correct about Kessig Prowler Flip being better in certain metas, and you could even run a split between those and Dryad Militant if you felt like it was better suited. Now for the breakdown of everything else: Reverent Hunter could pack a lot of power, but when you look at it, its max potential in this deck for turn three is a 5/5. Just looking at its turn three play potential, Steel Leaf Champion is much better, as it provides a form of evasion that matters more often than you might think, and provides better devotion for your Aspect of Hydra. Reverent Hunter can come down on turn four being huge, but than it has to survive to your next turn with no protection (you may have Vines of Vastwood, but I mean on the creature itself.) without getting killed by Fatal Push or Path to Exile or other various removal spells. Could be very strong, could be mediocre. Thrashing Brontodon seems alright, but it doesn't perform to much above curve. Power matters more than toughness for this deck, so it doesn't check well there, and if you want to use it as an artifact/enchantment removal spell you have to either wait till you get four mana, or risk having it killed before you untap. Prowling Serpopard could be good, but counterspells aren't excessive in the current meta, and the other available three drops perform much better. Thanks for the suggestions!

I've been looking at building stompy for a while and there are a few "out there" cards I've seen that seem fringe playable. Curious what you guys think about them: Reverent Hunter is huge when you curve into a decent board. Also synergizes with Avatar of the Resolute. Maybe as a one-of? Thrashing Brontodon is artifact/enchantment removal on an above-the-curve (if only slightly) creature. Prowling Serpopard is similar, but for control matchups. Lastly, I think in a creature-heavy meta Kessig Prowler Flip can be better than Dryad Militant. Curious what some veterans of the deck think.

Hey, only Standard post rotation here? I ask because 4x Scattered Groves can really help the manabase. If don't want to add Groves than consider 4x Tranquil Expanse in it's place? 9x Plains is a lot of Plains when you want to play Steel Leaf Champion.
For midrange 22x lands is a low amount even with 4x Llanowar. I suggest 24 lands since four drop Shalai and five drop Lyra are some of the most important cards you want to be able to play. You're going to want more lands to consistently be able to play these Angels.
Consider 3x Shanna, Sisay's Legacy and 2-3 Thrashing Brontodon. Knight of Grace is more of a sideboard card for matchups where you're expecting black removal. Same with Settle the Wreckage better here in the sideboard since you're tapping out each turn to play something not wanting to leave up four mana for Settle. In some matchups however Settle is really good, but that's why you have a sideboard :)
Good luck with your deck.

@stensiagamekeeper Hey there! To be honest, that Reckless Fireweaver actually seems really cool with all the other tech going around!Seems like a better payoff for making treasures in a void/stagnant boardstate :) Pinging can be so fun. I'll defenitely try to work it into the deck or sideboard as some sort of ping combo, I'm debating Fireweaver mainboard as of now. Seems quite lethal with the Brass's Bounty. As for Fight with Fire, that's a card I actually missed. Good call!
As for the deck in general: in my testing, I've been running into enchantments that kind of hate out the flying creatures of the deck, like Sandwurm Convergence. Red has no actual way of dealing with enchantments at all in the current standard format. Debating on adding Green to the deck for some additional enchantment hate in the form of Thrashing Brontodon, perhaps even a Carnage Tyrantfor additional beatings and a great creature to stomp through the enemy defences. Any thoughts on this? I think the better cards would be the ones that either hate on enchantments, provide some extra ramp or add payoff to collecting treasures.

multimedia Thank you so much for your suggestions! I'll definitely include Thrashing Brontodon and Ravenous Chupacabra in my sideboard/deck. Ravenous Chupacabra really is better than Walk the Plank as my deck focuses on creatures. Nevertheless, I really like having Longtusk Cub in combination with Winding Constrictor. This can easily get out of hand quickly.. :D But I'll consider including Adventurous Impulse somehow into the deck as well.Thanks again for your suggestions! :)
