Traveler's Amulet Discussion
4 days ago
Thanks for the suggestion. Sword of the Animist is dominant in this format,
As of just checking now, I'm 0.08 under budget. Sword of the Animist is $2.81, so would need to cut (if I do 1 for 1 instead of downgrading a bunch of other cards), $2.81 - $0.08 = $2.73. Graveborn Muse, Noxious Gearhulk, or Mindslaver are the only possible cuts.
I would probably cut the Scrap Trawler $1.62 or Go for the Throat $1.55 = $3.17 - $2.73 = $0.44 to replace 2 cards. Price of Fame is $0.25, leaving $0.19, which could be Costly Plunder $0.15 or Acidic Slime $0.24 (puts me a bit over).
I was also hoping to get a Hex Parasite in here, but he's $1.76 a little pricey, might need to get both these in. Also have Wanderer's Twig, Traveler's Amulet, or Golgari Keyrune could look at for cheaper ramp, but not as dominant as the Sword of the Animist.

Hey Gloomy-Butt, if you're looking for advice, you have to get your mana curve down. A one drop like Pelt Collector will help you do that and get off to more fast starts. This deck is also screaming for Steel Leaf Champion. I would cut Vigorspore Wurm and Primordial Wurm for that. If you can, Nullhide Ferox will give opponents fits, especially if you can get him out turn 3. Chromatic Lantern and Manalith are way to slow for what you are trying to do. Ghalta, Primal Hunger as a three of would be great. I'd also pull Traveler's Amulet. With no card draw, you are looking for a turn 5 or 6 win. Otherwise, your opponent is going to out-value you. Your instants and sorceries are also not helping you here. Thrashing Brontodon is going to help you curve out, and it will take the place of Naturalize, while still helping you swing. Kraul Harpooner will do the exact same for Pierce the Sky.
Overall, right now your deck will get outpaced by aggro, and waits to drop relevant creatures until control already has answers. I think that's why your deck is unplayable right now. Keep fighting and making changes though! I have a green red stompy deck that is very similar to this that wins quite a bit. And as always, have fun!

This is Owen from DoKs- I finally have time to give you a detailed response to your list so here goes!
First of all, just wanna say that with this being your very first multicolored deck I'm very impressed with your manafixing base. You've got plenty of lands that tap for multiple colors and I can see you've paid attention to your color pie on TappedOut. Your average CMC of 3.86 in the deck is also a very solid number for Dinosaur tribal- well done! My favorite cards you've got in here that I don't utilize are The Immortal Sun, Staff of Nin, and Duelist's Heritage. These are very synergistic cards for the deck and were well chosen. Staff of Nin, especially, since it gives you an extra draw (which Naya has a hard time with) plus the ability to trigger enrage on a stick. Makes me want to run it in my deck! You must have noticed the lack of draw abilities in Naya colors because I can see you're also running Elemental Bond and Commune with Dinosaurs (which is very flavorful, by the way). I would also like to praise you for running Triumph of the Hordes. If a game has gone on too long and you've got a mighty board presence, you can end it very fast this way.
I highly recommend you run Runic Armasaur as there is just too much value in the draw that it offers. Plus it's a dinosaur and only costs 3 mana.
I suggest running Fellwar Stone instead of Manalith. Playing in 4 player EDH means you will most likely be able to access all of your colors via your opponents (someone is bound to play a City of Brass or Mana Confluence which immediately causes Fellwar stone to tap for any color mana!). It only costs 2, so you can get it out a turn earlier than your Manalith.
In a similar vein, I would suggest you run Wayfarer's Bauble instead of Traveler's Amulet. Bauble puts that land directly on the field so you can "double" your land drop, whereas the Amulet merely puts it in your hand.
To avoid getting hit with counterspells you could run Prowling Serpopard.
Honestly at this point those are the only suggestions I have. This looks really, really solid and your mana curve looks brilliant. This looks like it will be a very consistent, reliable, and simultaneously fun deck.

Hey, great concept. Consider taking more advantage of Karn if you're building around him?
Consider more artifacts and Sai, Master Thopterist? Artifacts to consider are: Traveler's Amulet, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Fountain of Renewal, Sorcerous Spyglass, Sentinel Totem and Orazca Relic. More artifacts are not just good with Karn's constructs, but also Zahid and Tezzeret since you want three artifacts in play when you play Tezzeret to -0 to draw two cards. Totem is good right now in Standard because Golgari is focused on abusing the graveyard. The graveyard is essentially another hand for your Golgari opponent. Totem can stop this nonsense.
Consider this artifact base with Sai/Karn/Tezzeret/Zahid:
- 3-4x Sai
- 2x Zahid
- 4x Karn
- 2x Tezzeret
- 4x Amulet
- 3x Fountain
- 2x Totem (more in the sideboard)
- 4x Map
- 3x Compass
- 1x Spyglass (more in the sideboard)
- 2x Relic
Good luck with your deck.

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.
Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.
Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.
Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.
Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.
Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.
Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,
Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.
Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.
You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .
Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.
I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.
I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.
I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.
