Wayward Swordtooth Discussion

i think Wayward Swordtooth would work great in place of the weaver of currents and i really would like to see a twilight bob( Twilight Prophet ) in here somewhere as a one or two of the life swings alone would make it worth it

I find it to be very cool that this decklist runs no artifacts- but it's kind of a crime not to put Sol Ring in here. I think Quicksilver Amulet would find this to be a comfortable home, as well.

In terms of lands you should also at least throw some of the cheap nonbasics in here to get more colors like Frontier Bivouac, Rootbound Crag, Cinder Glade, Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef, etc. Also Command Tower definitely deserves to be here.

Other suggestions I have are to maybe add Wayward Swordtooth for that extra Exploration effect. Also for cool fun times with Maelstrom Wanderer put some bounce effects in here like Peel from Reality, Force Away, Boomerang, and Wipe Away to give Maelstrom Wanderer not only protection but the ability to replay him and get those sweet, sweet cascade triggers without having to worry about Commander tax.

Neat list! Hope my suggestions help!

Wayward Swordtooth wants to be in this hand! In 10 turns, you may be able to draw extra cards!

Since dinosaurs tend to be expensive, Kinjalli's Caller is a great card to add. It will help you get the city's blessing, which allows you Wayward Swordtooth to become active. If you have a lucky draw and get 2 of them in your opening hand, it's almost a good game. Drover of the Mighty will let you ramp up while helping you ascend, and you almost always control a dinosaur, making it a 3/3 instead of a 1/1. The biggest problem with your deck is DEFENSE AGAINST FLYING. I would add dinosaurs with reach to your sideboard, such as Grazing Whiptail and maybe a Plummet or 2. Great deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help!

So, a few more notes over the deck now that I look over it again.

First, Dragon Arch is only useful if you have more multicolored creatures than the 2 you have at the moment.

Second, here is some more dinos and stuff I think you may want: Wayward Swordtooth, Silverclad Ferocidons, Regisaur Alpha, Ripjaw Raptor, Wakening Sun's Avatar, Goring Ceratops, Thrashing Brontodon, Rampaging Baloths Rampaging Ferocidon, Raptor Hatchling, Sky Terror, Selvala's Stampede, Elemental Bond, Huatli, Warrior Poet

Heldt honestly, I might sub Wayward Swordtooth for Leatherback Baloth myself, even if the low land count means I don't always get the full benefit of its Explore effect. Cryptolith Rite versus Emerald Medallion is intriguing as well, and certainly warrants testing. Depending on the decks you expect to face, I might recommend removing Avatar of Might instead of Beastmaster Ascension, but it really depends.

As for Boots and Greaves, I'm not sure I have a good answer. Primal Bellow, maybe? I really like having one or both of them, but I'm not sure where to find room. I'm glad I was able to inspire you to tackle the deck yourself!

I forgot to mention Thrashing Brontodon for the sideboard, and Wayward Swordtooth seems GREAT for Ghalta. Against control, you might also want to consider the way of the Carnage Tyrant.

So far I'm thinking of these subs:
Wayward Swordtooth for Leatherback Baloth
Cryptolith Rite for Emerald Medallion
Vedalken Orrery for Beastmaster Ascension

I don't really want to take out Beastmaster Ascension but I don't see where else to make room. I think being able to cast Ghalta on my opponent's end step is invaluable. I would like some other haste enablers like Lightning Greaves, or Swiftfoot Boots, but I don't really see room for those. Might be able to squeeze in one of my favorites, Hall of the Bandit Lord.
