backinajiffy on Enraged Tough Dinos

This is pretty cool.

Couple things I was thinking while going through it -

Probably don't want to have Crushing Canopy and Slice in Twain in the main board since lots of decks don't play enchantments but they're excellent sideboard cards.

Definitely think Verdant Sun's Avatar would go naturally in here since you gain life equal to toughness so if you play Looming Altisaur you get seven life which is pretty insane.

I'd reccomend Cast Out or Ixalan's Binding since you almost always need an exile source for big threats like The Scarab God which everyone and their mother plays nowadays.

Also think Blossoming Defense would serve you well here since people will probably try to target your Belligerent Brontodon the moment you put him out.

kameenook on cascading into PURE VALUE(most of the time)

In the effort of critiquing, I would imagine Verdant Sun's Avatar isn't very good since it only prevents you from not dying, while it seems your deck profits very well off of killing your opponent as an effective way of not dying. Just in general then I would suggest more fast mana such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Worn Powerstone.

I also think Command Beacon is amazing with Maelstrom Wanderer, as at least when I play a maelstrom deck my favorite thing is to cast it double cascade and hope it dies so that I can cast it again.

Another card I'm just generally a huge fan of is Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, while it doesn't have an ETB ability if you cascade into it it will trigger cascade again allowing you to continue the chain at a lower converted mana cost.

Also don't like Managorger Hydra that much, generally don't like beaters even if they are efficiently costed in commander, maybe Forgotten Ancient would be better, or perhaps more cascade such as Bloodbraid Elf

Savage Stomp is amazing in a deck like this one. I ran a dinosaur deck for a little while and it was a lifesaver. Also I'd consider running a Verdant Sun's Avatar, and a Carnage Tyrant for fun and a good win con's/lifesavers. Good deck overall though!

Verdant Sun's Avatar isn't going to help you against an aggressive deck. that life gain will be comin way too late. Carnage Tyrant should be mainboard over Burning Sun's Avatar

instead of Vizier of the True, would you consider Drover of the Mighty ? also ones to consider could be Ripjaw raptor (budget concerns can come with this, could consider Grazing Whiptail if so), Imperial Aerosaur (surprise flying can close out a game), Priest of the Wakening Sun (life gain and tutoring can be super useful, in my experience with that guy), Kinjalli's Sunwing , Commune with Dinosaurs, Verdant Sun's Avatar, Ranging Raptors....

so this is a lot of suggestions,

but if you put Ranging Raptors and Drover of the Mighty , that pairs with Kinjalli's Caller to capitalize on ramping out bigger bombs. also taking advantage of the "dinos matter" would be the inclusion of Kinjalli's Sunwing , Priest of the Wakening Sun, and Commune with Dinosaurs.

Verdant Sun's Avatar is a giant bomb that is really only possible with the other ramp stuff. (could also consider Thundering Spineback if you go down the road of making lots of mana. good mana sink)

ill slap a list together and post it on here of what i think. i dig it though. is there any "lifegain matters" in standard at the moment? if so all the lifegain stuff (Ravenous Daggertooth included) could be a veritable strategy with a sort of build like this.

If your deck is centered around Verdant Sun's Avatar and kife gain. Id keep one in. No more than two though.
