Allosaurus Rider

Creature — Elf Warrior

You may exile two green cards from your hand rather than pay Allosaurus Rider's mana cost.

Allosaurus Rider's power and toughness are each equal to 1 plus the number of lands you control.

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

Hey! I'm interested in the Allosaurus Rider and Walking Ballista you have listed. To preface I am in Canada so for shipping, to be clear, I would cover costs seeing how the cards are not worth much and shipping will be slightly higher.

I play 4 color (no green) midrange. Usually I play Grixis, but can't play without path to exile right now.

I want to see Manamorphose and Hogaak banned. Manamorphose is how we see Arclight Phoenix in play turn 2. and losing manamorphose wouldn't actually kill archetypes besides storm. It would bring looting decks into check, in my opinion. I do NOT want to see Ancient Stirrings , Allosaurus Rider , or Lotus Field banned. Ancient Stirrings decks have not caused problems recently. Yes, I see that Stirrings decks COULD take over the meta post-Hogaak, but out of fairness, we need to let them sin before punishing them. Neobrand and Twiddle Storm need to become tier 1 before you consider banning them. If they're not tier 1 then they're bad decks and don't matter.

I want to see stoneforge mystic unbanned. I certainly wouldn't mind Preordain, but hadn't considered it until OP suggested it. I don't think it will happen, but I want Splinter Twin back.

I predict Hogaak will be banned with no other changes. I give stoneforge 40/60, and will be shocked if something else is banned or unbanned. But someone from wizards (I think it was Maro) said Hogaak was a mistake. It's 100% getting banned.

hungry000 on Neoform "reanimator" potential targets

Since you're playing Eldritch Evolution it's probably worth playing 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria for noncreature decks. Can't search it out with Neoform, but I'd say 4 Evolutions and Lootings is enough to allow you to get it when you need it.

To tack on to the Allosaurus Rider post, here's an idea for that: UG Neoform Stompy (WAR)

I’d go with Allosaurus Rider it has a huge CMC and can be free casted. Sooo turn two Griselbrand

1vI on Greenshoalbrand (WAR Spoiler, New Deck Breakdown)

ANemoAcids Simian Spirit Guide is super important because it allows us to cast Seismic Assault or Lightning Storm , but Manamorphose is definitely something we've considered! The issue I've found is it's a little awkward cantripping when you would like it to be in your hand to Exile to Allosaurus Rider .

stensiagamekeeper on Interesting Budget Legacy Combo

Oops for some reason assumed Natural Order would be $200 apiece. Still at $20 it's at least cheap enough that I can imagine a world where 4 order + 1 Progenitus + 35 forests and elves could be both cheaper and more competitive that something that was trying to make Allosaurus Rider happen seeing as it requires multiples of so many parts. Kinda defeats the purpose of the thread tho lol.

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.

Eldrich Evolution decks are usually good at getting out a turn 2 Magus of the Moon / Eidolon of Rhetoric off a mana dork for the occasional free win.

Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).

Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.

Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".

I might add more suggestions if I think about them.
