Atla Palani, Nest Tender

Legendary Creature — Human Shaman

, : Create a 0/1 green Egg creature token with defender.

Whenever an Egg you control dies, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

eliakimras on Dinosaurs go Rawr!

Great build! Dinosaurs are such a fun experience for newcomers.

Some points you might want to consider regarding your ramp package:

1: Ramping with creatures or artifacts is riskier than with lands (boardwipes usually leave lands alone). Also, has many mana doublers that benefit from land ramp:

2: If you're willing to include Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista (or their expensive siblings Stomping Ground, Temple Garden and Sacred Foundry), you open up some more options for you:

3: Then you might want to increase your land count. 33 is too few for Temple of the False God to realiably function.

I recommend swapping out your mana dorks for lands that ramp you (you can never have too much mana with kill-on-sight Gishath, Sun's Avatar):

4: Some card draw:

5: Better combat tricks

6: Broader utility

I'd suggest removing Reliquary Tower. If you have more than seven cards in hand as Gishath, you're already winning hard. In its place, consider one or more of the following:

I live for these kind of commanders. I made an Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck years ago and it was so much fun. I'm shocked by how many of these I don't recognise and excited by the prospect of making an EDH deck around a few of them. A mutlicolored phoenix? That's the second one!

probably up your land count to atleast 37-38, and I'll highly commend a card, Forerunner of the Empire as it can heavily combo with cards such as Ranging Raptors + Ripjaw Raptor + Silverclad Ferocidons , and has an infinite loop to wipe all other creatures and give you infinite 5/5s with Polyraptor

polyraptor etb, forerunner stack, polyraptor copy etb, forerunner stack

hits others.

I will also add that I do in fact play a dino deck as my main deck, Atla Palani, Nest Tender to be specific.

DrukenReaps that is a playstyle (which I love) that only certain people win with, takes a very different look at tempo & life totals as a resource. Very midrangy (which I also love). It is really fun to force players to make different decisions than they normally would because you have been chiseling at life totals on a non-lifegain control deck for example.

If you build it the non-cEDH/combo way Atla Palani, Nest Tender is chaotic in a fun way. Atla with Tobasco Sauce plays with high variance. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is one of my favorite egg-hatches, which probably fits the bill for this topic.

Polymorphing probably fits this bill too, you can build however much variance you want then Reality Scramble tokens.

Fun variance cards: Oath of Druids is a staple for me, you can make the game very lopsided against a miserly opponent with this. Creative Technique is powerful but has variance, Protection Racket is amazing in a fun Timmy deck that doesn't care that much if you lose a card here and there. None of those really stall things, they just keep the foot on the gas. I know there are more that I will think up.

Baumrinde on priority of activated abilities

1 year ago

Hi there, for example: when Atla Palani, Nest Tender enters the battlefield (and has haste from somewhere) you can use her ability. Even if someone removes her in responce of the activated ability the egg will still be made because the ability was on the stack.

So when thats the case then if Zopandrel, Hunger Dominus hits the field and you use the ability, you pay the price of 4 life and sac 2 creatures. Then the ability is on stack. If a opponent reacts to this activated ability and destroys Zopandrel then the activated ability will place no indestructable counters because Zopandrel is no longer there. Or will Zopandrel get the counter before the spell that was meant to destroy her sesolve?

LandoLRodriguez, as much as I ask people to engage with me on these deck pages I don't check the comments section often enough. Sorry for leaving you hanging so long! Thanks for the compliment on the deck page formatting - I honestly thought that people either didn't care for it and that I was the only one enjoying it. Seedborn Muse is a curious card to me - truly a green staple but is only good in decks that can regularly play on other player's turns using cards like Flash. In the case of my own deck, it's great when Zacama, Primal Calamity is on the field but wouldn't make much of an impact otherwise. Previously I had Atla Palani, Nest Tender in the deck but after a few games I quickly determined it's not a great fit. With Atla on the field the Eggs serve as a great deterrent but don't do anything else without Zacama or maybe Pyrohemia on the field. Currently i'm thinking of focusing on an ETB subtheme in this deck with the upcoming inclusion of Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip and Sword of Hearth and Home as the focus of this sub-theme. Of course this year also holds a new Ixalan set so there will be even more Enrage Dinos to consider in the future. Thanks for bringing suggestions though, please feel free to comment on any proposed swaps I have planned for the deck and thanks again for swinging by.

Atla Palani, Nest Tender just keep dissapointing me in this deck. I wanted it for board wipe protection, but I'd rather just ramp/cheat out threats.
