I wouldn't run Whispersilk Cloak because it is too expensive of an equip. Also, I wouldn't run Approach of the Second Sun because it is way too overcosted and gives your opponents seven turns to prepare for it. You're missing an Enlightened Tutor to go fetch your win cons and/or stax pieces. You're only missing two mana rocks - Mana Vault and Sol Ring . I also run Static Orb and tanglewire. I run Reflector Mage instead of Man-o'-War . I would also run Unquestioned Authority to give Brago unblockable and an extra draw off of combat. I run Preordain over Ponder . You can also board wipe you opponent by exiling all creatures with Parallax Wave , all lands with Parallax Tide , and all nonland permanents with Oblivion Ring . Another way to reach your win con would be to run Tezzeret the Seeker , who makes excellent artifact tutoring.

Hey hkhssweiss, thanks for the suggestion. While I do like enchantments for their low costs I think the high cost of equipments is justified in commander. In my playgroup board wipes happen at least every 3 turns and the possibility of reattaching equipments comes in handy. Furthermore getting out Hammer of Nazahn pretty much solves the problem of the equipmentcost (unless it gets removed). I do however like Shield of the Oversoul and Unquestioned Authority . I'm thinking about putting those in the deck but I just don't see a reason to go an all enchantment route. The problem I see with both enchantments and equipments is the fact that Arahbo, Roar of the World is quite predictable. I'm still thinking about adding more of pump spells because of that. Anyway thanks for the great suggestions again!

I think in a Gishath deck Gods Willing is a much stronger card than Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots . Haste is wasted on Gishath and giving her protection makes her unblockable to the chosen color. So not only can you protect her a turn, you almost guarantee to connect and go off, plus you get to filter a card to get your dinos on your field. It's not as permanent as an equipment card, but artifacts are easy to destroy anyway. I also use Unquestioned Authority .

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is really good. Also, I love a good Rancor . Your opponents will have a hard time getting rid of it. Hammer of Nazahn , Darksteel Plate , and Bastion Protector let you attack without fear. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great card for EDH. If you want commander damage, Whispersilk Cloak , Rogue's Passage , Spirit Mantle , Aqueous Form , Aether Tunnel , Unquestioned Authority , and Holy Mantle are options. Also Spectra Ward . These are good options for voltron if you go that way.

Thanks for the suggestions, I agree that Fertilid is expensive in mana for what it does and should be cut. Noxious Revival & Reinforcements look hella fun and it's cool that it works with Gishath's trigger if she dies. I don't really see too much wrong with Wakening Sun's Avatar , if it gets placed due to Gishath, then it's a 7/7 vanilla and that's not horrible. If I get it out by casting it, then it's a board wipe that almost exclusively hits my opponents. Gods Willing and Unquestioned Authority look pretty nice. I'll do some play testing before making any final decisions of course.

Grow from the Ashes is not as bad as Fertilid but is still too slow. Since you have plenty of ramp and discounters, I would add Reinforcements . If you are dealt a board wipe, Gishath will let you get 3 of your best dinosaurs back out of the graveyard.

Harmonize is expensive mana-wise, and really we don't want to draw so much once Gishath is out, since she's gonna be getting stuff onto the field for us. I think you'd much rather have Gods Willing , which will make Gishath unblockable from the color of your choice, and you can even Scry 1 to potentially get a non-dinosaur out of the way for when Gishath goes off. Unquestioned Authority is great for similar reasons. I would cut Wakening Sun's Avatar . Not only is it eating your budget, it really wants to be cast out of your hand, which isn't what Gishath does, and it's very expensive so cast if you manage to get it in your hand.
