Zacama, Primal Calamity Discussion

Bxbx on Jodah, Archmage Eternal

@Spoosky: It would require a bit of a setup. You'd have to be able to produce 10 mana with 7 lands for this combo to generate infinite mana (for example 7 lands, one of them a bounce-land, and one land enchanted with Market Festival). With 10 Mana you could pay 4 for Jodah, Archmage Eternal, pay WURBG for Palinchron, untap everything, pay 4 to return Palinchron. Then you can play Palinchron again and net 1 mana with each iteration. Regardless of that infinite combo, I might include Palinchron simply because it ramps when you play it for WURBG.

@Atuva: Yeah, that would be a nice engine. Phyrexian Reclamation would also be useful on its own. The problem I see is, that Master Transmuter would only be useful in the combo, because I don't have any artifact fatties like Blightsteel Colossus to cheat out. So I'll shelve this idea for now. Doubling Cube could be nice. I already thought about Mirari's Wake and the like (they also synergize with Garruk Wildspeaker, Zacama, Primal Calamity and with Palinchron if I choose to include it).

Hmm.... actually that sounds like quite a great idea. I have already thought of Odric, Lunarch Marshal, but I thought that most of my creatures are too "blank" for him, even though he would of course go insane with Zetalpa, Primal Dawn - however, most creatures would "only" spread trample. The only creatures worth playing this Odric are Xenagos, God of Revels, Zacama, Primal Calamity, Carnage Tyrant, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn and of course my commander Gishath, Sun's Avatar. For five creatures (that also each of them has a hate mark on it) I think Odric, Lunarch Marshal is too often a dead card.

Odric, Master Tactician has never been on my wish list. Thinking of him, however, he might be great to let Gishath, Sun's Avatar, while also letting my opponent's creatures block as efficient as possible to either kill them and/or trigger my enrage abilities. First, he will be added into my maybe list - I have no idea what to cut for him.

Updates: So, Golden Guardian  Flip is fun with I thought it would be. Golden Guardian + Ripjaw Raptor --isn't it funny how the raptor has a 5 butt? That's just neat or as Forrest would say, "They go together like peas and carrots."

Zacama, Primal Calamity NEEDS to lead this deck, but in my humblest opinion Gishath, Sun's Avatar is superior in every way. Most notably, Gishath wants you to have a dino deck, but Zacama could go into any naya build and not even remotely need dinos.

Mana base plays fine, even without costly duals and extra special land fixing.

Spells are fine, as long as you enjoy the creature style of decks. This is a creature deck. Getting an Elemental Bond is great, because you constantly refuel until someone realizes your are crushing them with draws and removes said enchantment. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is equally efficient.

Both Gideon, Martial Paragon and Huatli, Radiant Champion seem right at home here. I thought of other walkers, but no one else seemed to match the subtheme. And I promise if you hit Gideon's ultimate, you should win hands down. But his +2 ability really made me wanna play exert; I just couldn't comfortably fit it into the deck...

The rest is all fun. Queue Jurassic Park music!

Ah, true.

Ok, let me think...Zacama, Primal Calamity? Idk, we're brainstorming here.

Oh, it's 100% Dino tribal. I did have Gishath, Sun's Avatar as the commander at first and as much as I love the ability it has the control that Zacama, Primal Calamity brings to the board is just something I can't ignore. Thank you for the +1!

finnegang on Rivals Updated Dinosaur Tribal

Seems like very straightforward dino deck. I have a similar one, but I'm struggling to create some sort of synergy. I'm not sure there is enough enrage to cover it.

I try to draw more with Drumhunter and Garruk's Packleader. Also Harmonize (autoinclude in all my green decks). Also Staff of Nin is good for drawing and enabling enrage.

I don't think Savage Stomp or Commune with Dinosaurs are good enough for Commander.

Personally, I'm not sure dinos need the extra boost of Coat of Arms or Vanquisher's Banner (although the last one allows some card advantage. Most of them might get chumpblocked anyway.

I'm trying to play Zacama, Primal Calamity as my commander. He gives great late control and usually come into play relatively fast because of all the shamans and ramp. Maybe that means I'm going a different route. Hope it helps anyway.

sachmet on Zacama banned in EDH?!?

I just tried to update my EDH deck with Zacama, Primal Calamity as my commander and was told Zacama is banned in EDH. Can someone explain where this info came from and how to get it fixed?

How could you honestly keep Zacama, Primal Calamity and Ghalta, Primal Hunger it's really just not a real elder dino party without them!

also consider Kinjalli's Caller Knight of the Stampede and Otepec Huntmaster to keep your dinos cheap
