Description

INTRODUCTION

When the spoilers for Ixalan were "released" early, and I saw the dinosaurs, I knew I just had to make a dinosaur deck. I have always been a fanboy of dinosaurs since I was a child. Growing up I actually wanted to be paleontologist (but I grew out of that and now I am trying to become a security/police officer). As more and more spoilers were released for Ixalan, my inner child just grew out of control. The dinosaurs are a very powerful tribe that I think will be fun to play.

My only complaint about dinosaurs is that they weren't Jund. Naya colors are good, but I like black with all the tutors, but I can make Naya colors work. A friend of mine is a Naya commander, and he has helped me out greatly in learning the philosophy behind Naya and how works great together.

Great tribe! +1

Maybe Drumhunter is a better draw engine than Garruk's Packleader? Because he ramps, is a draw engine and 1 mana cheaper.

And from my personal view he is also great for your deck flavor wise.

Mike94, I think you are right on about that. I think it has better drawing power, because once you get a fatty on the table, its drawing cards for you every turn, which is easier than playing a fatty every turn. Great call. I'm adding it to my decklist now.

I am actually thinking of dropping Garruk's Packleader, but he works well with Gishath's ability, because it's when the creature enters the battlefield. Not when casted. So even the tokens count. Drawing power isn't too bad so far in all my test plays. It's mostly an issue with protecting the dinosaurs. :/

CardTyrant, that's always a problem if you play fun value decks, I had the same problem with my Odric, Lunarch Marshall EDH deck and decided to make protection a sub theme.

You could run Flickering Ward for recurring protection and Eldrazi Monument could also be a strong include if you can sacrifice a token in your upkeep. Your deck would also benefit from Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves. Mother of Runes is also great for early game protection.

If you have the mana then Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is a great addition and can protect several dino's at once (he is completely of flavor though). Glory is also a great option if you can get it into your graveyard.

Spectra Ward combined with Concerted Effort is a great shield for your creatures, when you combine these with Eldrazi Monument it's almost impossible to remove them.

Hope you can do some tinkering with these suggestions!
