Creature (1)


Description

I'm trying to tweak the lists I've seen between the R/G Dinosaurs and the Jund Energy that have been floating around on the Star City Games and TCG Player sites. I'm sure dinosaurs can be played, just not as a soul dinosaur deck. It's been slightly confirmed that breaking them up and placing some of the dinosaurs in various decks would be better until the next set comes out, so that's what I'm trying to do for now. Through play testing this list seems pretty smooth in gaining energy, removing threats, and putting out hefty creatures to keep pressure.

I didn't realize how good Glint-Sleeve Siphoner was in this format as a menace card drawer. It's got some good synergy with Greenbelt Rampager which is just nuts if you can stick that turn two from a turn one Attune with Aether . With the life we lose off the Siphoner and Arguel's Blood Fast (which is another great card to have at any point in the game) we can gain right back with Deathgorge Scavenger triggers and Vraska's Contempt casts. So really this deck just puts out all the best G/R/B spells in the format for now. So I guess, enjoy. Haha.

I like your Jund build with energy. I am trying a similar concept by taking the shell from the BG Winding Constrictor lists, and splashing blue which gives access to The Scarab God, Hostage Taker, and Rogue Refiner. But since I don't currently own any Hostage Taker, your dino list might be a better build for me. So much versatile removal in your colors!!

I like having access to Regisaur Alpha and Glorybringer provided by going with red.

Would appreciate your thoughts on my Sultai Energy Elves build if you have a moment.

djnewellmit Thank you for the view and up-vote bro. I'm still looking at what can and can't be better for this build but for the most part, yea, it's not completely guided by the Winding Constrictor builds cause it would take away from it's raw power and removal slots.

I'll certainly look at your list and test it against mine considering Sultai Energy took the latest SCG Standard Open last week and is becoming quite looked at by the pros.

I been testing against Pirates, Control, and other Dino decks and so far this deck list doesn't disappoint most the time. Lol. Curves naturally well with Attune with Aether and my one and two drops...the removal is spot on time and life gain both pre and post sideboard is just enough to get by to the late game. I did have the Ripjaw Raptor in place of the Bristling Hydra but figured the "Energy" idea would be lost a bit, plus the hexproof comes in handy during the control match ups where they're fishing for mass removal for it.

it may or may not be great in this deck, but I've been playing around with Ripjaw Raptor and find it very powerful. At worst, it trades with a removal spell, but normally its a decent sized beater or ground blocker that can give you huge card advantage over time.

it could replace other cards.

ThompsonB3ast21 Thanks for the suggestion, I tested with the card a lot and though its a sick creature with a great P/T and ability, I find the hexproof ability a little more needed...for now. I very well will probably cycle Ripjaw Raptor back into this build but right now the energy theme is asking for Bristling Hydra.
