Belligerent Brontodon

Creature — Dinosaur

Each creature you control assigns combat damage equal to its toughness rather than its power.

TheRoaringRegisaur on New hubs to be added

I agree with TheVectornaut about a Defenders or Toughness Matters hub. WotC seems to like printing Assault Formation , Arcades, the Strategist , and High Alert , 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 , Belligerent Brontodon , and 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!

Romer on Doran's Tough Guy Posse

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.

NV_1980, I just added Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper. Honestly, I should have done this long ago. You were right!

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.

You should play copies of each High Alert , Assault Formation and Belligerent Brontodon as backups for your commander. Wakestone Gargoyle might be very useful 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.
