I originally thought you were affectionately calling Gishath, Sun's Avatar 'Grimlock' like myself, but no they really made a Grimlock card haha.

CrazedPorcupine: Crucible of Worlds is absent mainly because $20 is the absolute maximum I am willing to spend on individual magic cards. All of the cards over that price I have acquired via trading, drafts, or buying beat up versions of the card. However, if I manage to get one it's going straight in the deck!

Ryjo - He will likely show up in Rivals of Ixalan as we already have our 3 planeswalkers in Jace, Vraska, and Huatli.

However, today's magic story gives us an idea of what he looks like and he is indeed a Minotaur.

More Dino-ramp:

Going by the flavor text, does this mean we get a green one as well (maybe at rare)? We already have Otepec Huntmaster in red at uncommon. I think it is pretty great that they are spreading out the dino-cost reduction over multiple creatures so each dino-archetype gets supported.

Wow, Field of Ruin is a fantastic EDH political card. Not only does it Ghost Quarter an oppressive land, but it provides a bonus for everyone else, making them more likely to help you in the future. Plus you don't short yourself on mana like you do with Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, etc.

Also...the land enters the battlefield UNTAPPED, which is big IMO. You could even use it to ramp another player who is 1 mana short of playing a response (i.e. removal spell) to a board-wide threat. I am a big fan of this card.

The traditional land destruction lands are still better, but this is an interesting alternative.

Oh boy, a new toy for my Sygg deck!

LOL, the name of that W/R dino on mtgsalvation right now is "Russian Pterodactyl".

The "bat-god" referenced in the flavor text of Temple of Aclazotz could very well be a demon that we haven't been introduced to yet.

True, but now that we know he is a Bolas agent (as of the last HOU chapter), I think there is more to it.

Interesting theory, but that doesn't really sound like Ugin me. I feel like he would more than likely just rally the denizens of his home plane of Tarkir. Plus we already know that Bolas sent Vraska to Ixalan for the specific reason of finding the Immortal Sun. I doubt Ugin had a role in this plane.

Unless...Ugin created the magic binding Jace, Angarath, and Vraska to the plane as a trap for Bolas knowing he would pursue the Immortal Sun, but that is just wild speculation at this point with no basis.

Here is some more wild-conjecture for ya though. What if the Immortal Sun is a PW who still has special spark closer to the pre-mending walkers whom Ugin is trying to conceal from Bolas? The title "Immortal Sun" sorta fits and that has always been Bolas' goal, to regain his pre-mending power. Plus isn't Vraska some crazy good PW tracker and assassin? That would be a neat twist to the story.

I am also curious as to what Ral Zarek is doing now that we know he is also working for Bolas even though he was "helping" Jace stop the lightning bug project.

I'll stop ranting/throwing wild speculation out there now haha.

Idk, I think it is real. Both mythicspoiler and mtgsalvation have it up as confirmed. She looks pretty darn powerful, but will she find a home?

Also, it appears we might be getting a cycle of legendary flip lands. We now have a blue one to go with our black and green ones.

Some more dino tech:

Seems good for mono red?

Reads Pay one R draw two cards with Ripjaw Raptor (3 if you opponent blocks).

Thanks for the suggestions dbpunk. I originally had Meren of Clan Nel Toth in here but she is surprisingly difficult to find so I gave up haha. Adun Oakenshield actually plays a very good impersonation of her, though not quite as good.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest doesn't really fit the what the deck is trying to do though. Yes I plan to be sac'ing numerous creatures, but in most cases when I start sac'ing creatures it is to combo out or in response to a board wipe so his ability doesn't really do much in this deck.

Ambush Commander is an interesting idea, though I would probably use something like Rude Awakening in stead. I have found at times that I have a TON of lands with not too much action in my hand, so a card like that might be helpful. I'll see how it plays in the deck.

windlnk: Thanks for the clarification.

AgentGreen: I mean we do now have Drover of the Mighty, Servant of the Conduit, Otepec Huntmaster and Attune with Aether in standard. Plus cards like Raptor Hatchling and Ranging Raptors are great stalls/ramp that trade well with Mono-red's creatures and burn spells.

Something like Rampant Growth or my reprint prediction: Exploration would go a long way to helping Dinos ramp though.

Ooo another Dino-lord:

Thundering Spineback 5GGUncommon

Other dinosaurs you control get +1/+1

5G: Create a 3/3 green dinosaur creature token with trample

Not the best, but still not bad for an uncommon

So we are getting a new Gaea's Cradle, a Dragonlord's Servant for Dinos that also grants haste, a pirate lord in the form of a vehicle, and a card that sifts for Dinos....this set is fantastic!

Sorry to burst your bubble windlnk, but last thing I heard was that Wizards is pretty much against printing anymore 1 drop mana dorks with no drawbacks/hoops to jump through....though I too wish for the glory days when I was dropping Dragonlord Atarka T4-T5.
