Thank you for the suggestions ClockworkSwordfish. I had considered Gempalm Incinerator but I'm focusing on burning the opponent's life totals only. I used to have Voracious Dragon in when I first built it, I'll have to try him out again. Now Battlemage's Bracers is something I haven't tooled with yet, thank you for bringing that to my attention.

I recognize Basalt Ravager is a nice way to blast stuff based on all the goblins you're stockpiling, but it might be worth it to bump him up to Voracious Dragon - the one extra mana is worth it to double the damage output. I find that in a Krenko deck, the Dragon can often blow an opponent's head off post-combat, though it also swings in the air if you have a card that provides Haste in play! If you mostly run him to take out creatures, Gempalm Incinerator would also be worthwhile as a cheaper, more efficient version of the same.

Speaking of haste, it might be worth considering Battlemage's Bracers over Illusionist's Bracers. Having to pay one mana every time is indeed a drag, but getting haste on some of your guys (including Krenko!) is so important that I think it will usually be worth the tradeoff.

Hey, there's not much to say yet as this is just a list of cards you want to play, nice Swordtooth. Most of what you have so far on the low budget is good, but Decree of Savagery is not playable and Sun-Crested Pterodon, Elfhame Palace, Stone Quarry are really lackluster.

Do you own Gishath? I don't see him here, but I do see Atla. If you don't own Gishath then he's really not worth getting for $20 if you're on such a low budget. Atla is a fine Commander for Dinos and you have her. For $20 you could get many budget cards that are good with Atla rather than just Gishath.

Atla and Gishath will play very differently. Gishath is more straight forward, ramp and Dinos. Atla is more complex since you want ramp, sac outlets for Eggs and Dinos. Marauding Raptor is a combo Dino with Atla to kill an Egg right when it ETB. It also triggers enrage when a Dino ETB.


Some budget Dinos to consider adding:

Some budget cards that have good interactions with Atla and/or Dinos or are ramp:

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

RNR_Gaming you skipped over several of my points ;) ​

I'd also point out the majority of commanders do the same things every game to some extent. Atraxa decks are all walkers or generic counter decks, Meren decks all reanimate the same handful of things, Lathril is just elfball, Kozilek is just eldrazi tribal, Yuriko is either ninja tribal or big cmc, Edgar goes high cmc control vampires or low cmc aggro vampires. Very rarely do people have obscure decks without predictable strategies. The details can change as they have in my Mairsil deck from time to time. Sometimes I use Oona as my win con, other times tree of perdition, or even just turning Mairsil sideways after hex parasite eats a few planeswalkers. There's more to if you want me to go into it. People that look at Mairsil often limit themselves rather than be creative with him.

"Since release I would say the only thing that 100% goes into almost every list is Asmodious." This is just false and no one ever backs it up when they say it because they can't. Asmodeus the Archfiend, Unmarked Grave, The Deck of Many Things, Endling, Oriq Loremage, Pendant of Prosperity, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Spark Double, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Doom Whisperer, Ormos, Archive Keeper, Teferi's Time Twist, Notion Rain, Shenanigans, Battlemage's Bracers, Netherborn Altar, Lithoform Engine, Sanctum of Eternity, Wizard's Spellbook, and more. These all easily fit into Mairsil lists and make for difficult choices on what to keep and what to cut. Again though if you wanted to only build as optimally as possible there are only 2 or 3 things that lead to victories. Although even one of those didn't exist until after Mairsil was printed, Thassa's Oracle. He gets plenty of toys, people are just unimaginative imo.

Maybe consider Aspect of Mongoose over Canopy Cover. Both have their advantages of course. Rings of Brighthearth work with Shroud, but Battlemage's Bracers wouldn't unless they were equipped first.

Hi there,

I don't think Battlemage's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth work with Delina because she has a triggered ability not an activated ability.

I quite like the idea of stealing stuff with Molten Primordial and sacrificing them to Tooth and Claw . But it is kinda unfortunate that the stolen creatures can't attack (when copying the Primordial with Delina). Goblin Bombardment and Spawning Pit might be a good inclusion if you wanna lean more into that.

I also like Bloodthirsty Blade and Shiny Impetus to create safe attack opportunities. Disrupt Decorum might fit here too (as it is being reprinted in the AFR Commander Decks).
