Thurbajen on Gishath Gonna Dump His Boyos

triproberts12 Hey Bud. Yeah, all the cards in the main board I own, and most in the Maybeboard. Just read the article and that was really interesting. Guess I should probably run Sakura-Tribe Elder over Explosive Vegetation !

Would you say that Territorial Allosaurus should be ran over Domri Rade then? As it can be hit off of Gishath, Sun's Avatar ? I just find that he comes down, makes something fight and then dies, and even if he survives he then has a 30% chance of drawing you a card.

I agree with you on Huatli, Warrior Poet , and I think that does probably mean that Charging Monstrosaur is better, but I'd still put in things like Sunforger above it. I still don't even think that Vanquisher's Banner is that good in this deck, and adding something like Crush Contraband a long with Sunforger would be a better include.

Scattered Groves and Sheltered Thicket should probably be in the lad base anyway. I don't know about going all the way up to 40 lands as that's how many I have in my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck! Average on EDHREC is now at 38, so I should go up one or maybe even two.

It has occurred to me that there is a sweet combo with one of the indestructible spells like Make a Stand and a combination of Raptor Hatchling or Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor . In combination with Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge this would make a quick win. Would you say that this is worth going for and building in? Or am I convoluting the strategy!

Once again if there's anything I can do on your tappedout let me know and I would be happy to oblige.

triproberts12 Hey bud! So do you not like Kindred Boon ? I'm going to swap it out for an Asceticism whenever I acquire one but I ended up liking the solid protection it brings. It may well be a tad expensive though. Thank you for pointing out Duelist's Heritage and its politicking ability! I haven't seen the card before. I agree that Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is a little iffy, as I find it usually only flips when I have loads of big Dinos on the board anyway, and the land tutoring ability of Hour of Promise may well be worth it instead. I think I'll cut Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for Hour of Promise and cut Onward / Victory for Blood Mist until I acquire a Duelist's Heritage (or I could include Blood Mist also and cut something else?). I'm not sure about cutting the Bellowing Aegisaur for Sakura-Tribe Elder only because of its combo potential with Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor . Is there any other Dinos that you think are weaker? What are your opinions about my exclusion of Atzocan Seer and Drover of the Mighty or the other cards in the Maybeboard? I really appreciate the help thanks awfully :)

triproberts12 Hi man, really appreciate the help as this is the first comment I've had on tapped out after using it for a couple of days! The point you make about Nature's Lore being in over Selesnya Signet I think is probably correct so when I acquire one I'll swap that in. I'm already running Farseek so I guess the decision would be weather to cut Bellowing Aegisaur or Onward / Victory for Sakura-Tribe Elder . Do you not think I have enough ramp (this may be the case)? Bellowing Aegisaur combos well with Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor and I think that Onward / Victory seemed very good at getting almost two double strike triggers for Gishath, Sun's Avatar . Perhaps I don't need this though as I have may enough effects like True Conviction , Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion , Boros Charm (if needed) and Goring Ceratops . Perhaps Blood Mist is better than Onward / Victory anyway.

Seems pretty much all over the place. If you want to play Dinosaurs, there a e few possible ways to go about it. Play a Ramp-deck that cheats out giant dinosaurs early. Play the Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor infinity combo. Or play an midrange enrage list. There are many ways to build a dinosaur deck. Also for consistency sake, play 3-offs or 4-offs of those cards, that execute your game plan best and cut the 1-off and 2-off cards that don't.
