This combo caught my eye as well ... glad to see you're taking a swing at it!
A few thoughts:
- We get 3 triggers before Forerunner of the Empire dies, so we can get up to 8 (or 2 to the 3rd) Polyraptors.
- Champion of Rhonas can cheat Polyraptor out early. And even earlier with Bloodlust Inciter or some ramp.
- In case you haven't already seen them, there's a thread discussing this here on T/O and a couple over on reddit.
Good luck with the brew!

Thank you for the links! I'll definately be checking it out.
Ive added more ramps into the deck and its so much fun to playtest aha.. T6 T7 is often when it happens but i'd like to try and finetune it more. Let me know if you learn of anything super cool! And i cant wait to see your version too!

Awesomely awesomeness of awesomnity. Dang, that's a cool combo. How about Bellowing Aegisaur just to say "fuck you a little more"?

seshiro_of_the_orochi Lmao yes that is definately one of those kinds of cards! I just dont want to mess with the consistency to find a white source, though, maybe Unclaimed Territory would work , and with Drover of the Mighty..... oooh. Maybe it would work!

My take on the deck
January 8, 2018 2:47 p.m.
jparker-sartori21 yep i checked it out when my friend tagged me in it, i like that we have the same idea but different executions of it.
Do you like anything from my list or suggestions or are you just advertising your deck?

My playtesting made me feel like Trove of Temptation and Rishkar's Expertise are a bit weak, the former is too slow and the latter feels clunky when a big dino would just be stronger. I would add a forerunner and a polyraptor, sorry for the blind post earlier, i was low on time.

Why focus only on Polyraptor when you can go infinite with a range of dinosaurs? I borrowed an idea from jparker-sartori21 but developed it further into Raptor Forerunner, which is what I feel you are all aiming for.

Mave I've definately thought about it, just not sure what i could drop without losing consistency for it. Also adding Frilled Deathspitter as an alternate win perhaps..? (instead of polyraptor and incase no haste from Regisaur Alpha ) ((maybe this is a different deck altogether))
Murphy77 I really enjoy the jank aspect of the polyraptor and didnt want to deviate too much from that idea :)

You're right that is a different approach with Forerunner of the Empire. I wonder if the Frilled Deathspitter, Raptor Hatchling Version would be faster or if the Hatchling is too easy to kill.I wonder if one could just make the sideboard so that one "switch decks" after the first Match. Mostly you opponent will put cards into their deck to stop your big creatures and Polyraptor if they lost the first match. If it appeared that they have a hard time using their Fatal Push in the first Match they most certainly will sideboard them out which helps the Hatchling strategy.I once saw a guy using a full graveyard cycling strategie similar to living End in Modern and his sideboard was just like: Let's take out our whole strategie and switch to aggro cycling discard triggers. Worked well because the opponent sideboarded about 5 (then) useless cards in XD

I like your list, havent seen any others yet. Looks really solid, especially as a way to transition my Naya deck with the new set.
Raging Regisaur is a nice way to trigger Enrage you might consider over Wayward, good to reliably trigger Ranging Raptors. I do miss Carnage Tyrant, if you make a Sideboard a couple could be good to bring in against Control. Otepec Huntmaster even as a 2x over Wayward can almost more reliably ramp as the cost reduction can let you get a couple casts per turn later game vs an extra land that only gives 1 towards cost total. It dies to combo but at that point youve won. I guess it comes down to how much you want to rely on the combo to win vs going up curve steadily.
