Belligerent Brontodon occurrence in decks from the last year
Belligerent Brontodon Discussion
2 months ago
I agree with TheVectornaut about a Defenders or Toughness Matters hub. WotC seems to like printing
Arcades, the Strategist
, so Defenders is a good choice (though I wouldn’t call it Walls because not all defenders are walls). But I’ve also seen a lot of Toughness Matters with
Doran, the Siege Tower
Huatli, the Sun's Heart
I’m here to throw out Chroma/Devotion. Even before Theros Beyond Death, there’s been a lot of modern decks using Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Green likes to print cards like Khalni Hydra , Primalcrux , and Llanowar Tribe , but there’s plenty of devotion with other colors, too.
Anyway, thanks for reading!

Two years later and you're both right - I've finally implemented those suggestions.
bobanderson, I did take out Belligerent Brontodon. I liked the redundancy in case I lose Doran or he's prohibitively expensive to cast, but the brontodon is just way too expensive to cast. Still keeping Assault Formation as a backup for Doran though.

You probably don't need Belligerent Brontodon, as in averaging out P/T of your creatures you don't gain much if anything with it. You'll also probably want to switch out Strength of the Pack with an Overrun variant, perhaps End-Raze Forerunners on a budget. And, finally, seconding the others--fewer lands, more ramp. That means Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Nature's Lore, Farseek, etc. Sol Ring and Command Tower are automatic includes in a Commander deck, as well. Good luck! Looks like a fun deck!

Angler Turtle, Meandering Towershell and Mistford River Turtle. The first one is an insane finisher/control-card, the second one is a flavour-bomb with a surprising lot of utility, and the third is actually a pseudo turtle-lord.
A card I havent used yet that I'd love to is Belligerent Brontodon. Maybe I should build Bant Butt Strike soon...

The landbase seems a little too simple for a 3-colour-deck. May I suggest du add at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse ? They aren't expensive and help a lot. Primal Druid and Wild-Field Scarecrow are fitting ramp/fixing options, and Scaretiller might be worth a look, as well.
Two more interesting options are Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Mistford River Turtle to make your walls unblockable. Oh, and a way to give your creatures vigilance seems importan as well ( Always Watching is fine for that). Three more nifty cards for toughness-decks are Bident of Thassa , Angler Turtle and Profaner of the Dead .
Keep up the work, you definitely are on a good way.
