You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.

Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.

4 Hedron Crab 4 Stitcher's Supplier, 4 Satyr Wayfinder Wayfinder is better. You want that land in your hand or on the battlefield. You don't want a dead draw into a land. You need to draw fuel.

Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...

4 Artisan Fiend 4 Splinterfright (your trampler) 3-4 Nighthowler, 4 Unearth

If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.

You've got all these cheap creatures in your deck. 2 Lazav, the Multifarious. Need answers? Eldritch Evolution, 2 Neoform

What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments. 1 Plague Engineer 2 Plaguecrafter 1 Reclamation Sage 1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion Thrashing Brontodon
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?

4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.

Late game shenanigans: Sidisi, Brood Tyrant or you could Neoform/Eldritch sooner. Genesis because that's awesome. Alt win: Laboratory Maniac

I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

Side note - You can Collected Company these creatures. Imagine that. Not so good idea Nightmare Shepherd. Eh idea Creeping Chill Maybe out of the side? Burn is real.

Regarding the suggested cards...

(I want to pause here and say that all your suggestions and the time you took to make them are absolutely appreciated... far too often I see people ask for advice and then, when they get it, immediately respond defensively, even at times antagonistically, as if the requested advice had somehow been a personal attack. I genuinely wanted advice, and my comments below are made in an effort to better understand the advice given, not to defend or prove the original decision correct.)

Regarding the suggested cards, I'm looking at them and comparing them to some of the other options - I might need a little better understanding of the more subtle reasons why one might be a better option than the others.

Heroic Intervention vs. Inspiring Call Obviously Intervention is cheaper and can protect individual creatures from being targeted, so on a case-by-case basis there will definitely be times when it is superior. Really like that card-draw advantage though...

Reclamation Sage vs. Thrashing Brontodon Honestly, I much prefer Bontodon's larger size for the same casting cost, but unfortunately you can't use his ability until he is on the field, giving your opponent a better chance to remove or circumvent it.

Scavenging Ooze vs. Tormod's Crypt or Soul-Guide Lantern Other than requiring mana to activate (and the issue mentioned above, with Thrashing Brontodon), I don't see how ScOoze isn't the better option in this particular deck.

Mistcutter Hydra vs. Stonecoil Serpent and Endless One While the other two are definitely superior for the artifact version of Scales, I'm not certain either is the better choice for this deck. While the Serpent is certainly better situationally, it seems like the addition of Haste makes the Hydra a superior all-around option - so much so that I strongly considered it for the main deck. Is there such a density of multi-color threats in Pioneer that I should reconsider that?

Damping Sphere and Vivien Reid are admittedly intriguing options that I had overlooked for potential inclusion into this deck. With no legitimate ramp, would Vivien generally be considered too expensive? She would certainly help with any mirror matches...

Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

You can only have one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx on the field at any one time, as it is a Legendary land.

So there is no "doubling up".

I have tested against this deck quite a few times now and it has one fatal flaw.

Due to a lot of your creatures having the ability to gain counters when other creatures enter the field, but not actually give themselves counters, you can be left with a field of very low P/T creatures.

Then these just get board wiped.

This can also occur if your Opponent just destroys or exiles one of your key creatures.

You could overcome this by adding some copies of things like Stonecoil Serpent or Endless One or Hangarback Walker


My biggest suggestions for your Sideboard are Heroic Intervention Return to Nature Damping Sphere Thrashing Brontodon and maybe Vivien Reid

Tormod's Crypt or Soul-Guide Lantern are also worth thinking about if you have trouble with Opponent recurring creatures.

Hope that helps.

@40601 - as much as Shriekmaw is useful to cast since it has low cmc to evoke, and i can recur it from the yard, but the nonartifact and nonblack creature only option is not as useful as Ravenous Chupacabra imo.. although i might put either Thrashing Brontodon or Caustic Caterpillar as additional artifact or enchantment removal.. thanks!

@FeJex - whoa! thanks for the suggestions! I'm definitely going to add a couple of those.. Since when I'm playtesting this deck, graveyard hate is not uncommon to put on some edh decks, and my graveyard got exiled quite a few times, and some of those cards can be a deterrent that they can't exile my graveyard that easily..

Shriekmaw, Thrashing Brontodon and Caustic Caterpillar are good removal creatures for jarad

Meteor Golem Crashing Drawbridge Return of the Wildspeaker Thrashing Brontodon while not elves can be excellent additions to the deck End-Raze Forerunners is one of the best overrun wincons possible for the deck in my opinion. thanks for the tech

I could whip something up if you wanted to just send me a list of all the Dino stuff you have access to? Otherwise,

If it’s various Dinos in the sideboard, keep in mind Commune or Forerunner of the Empire. Both of those help to see those Dinos sideboarded in as 1-2 of.

I’d maybe start with 2 Thrashing Brontodon in the main and maybe 2 more in the sideboard just in case. It’s my favourite answer for artifacts and enchantments. It doesn’t really hurt the game plan either to have something like 2 in the main to start I feel.

I think definitely some amount of Rampaging Ferocidon. It seems various forms of Mono-white life gain are popular right now. Especially with new Heliod. It’s an easy card when deciding to board in or out. “They have lifegain or many creatures/tokens? ITS IN!” :)

Flame Sweep would probably be good in the Main even, to help against some of the Mono and clear out any mana dorks etc. I almost always use 4, whether sideboard or main. I’ve found it generally useful at most points.

Shifting Ceratops is quite important in the 75 for obvious reasons. It definitely another good choice for the sideboard or main. I like a split of 2 Carnage and 2 Shifting but I could see 4 Shifting if facing lots of Teferi and Blue. I’d rather have more than one Shifting out VS the decks they are good against simply because they are so resilient. Also the fact they cost less than Carnage really helps to keep things going fast.

Deathgorge Scavenger could certainly be in the Sideboard. Some to consider if you anticipate needing graveyard hate.
