Hey, good budget version of Gishath.

Congregation at Dawn ($2 at CardKingdom) and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can search for Dinos/Dino and put them/it on top of your library before you attack with Gishath making sure that you cheat a Dino/Dinos onto the battlefield with the attack. Tracker can get any Dino who has trample and there's quite a few including Quartzwood. Shared Summons can get any two creatures into your hand which includes Forerunner and an enrage Dino.

Garruk's Uprising is a good repeatable draw and trample source with Dinos. Getting both these abilities from a three drop enchantment is helpful especially with Quartzwood. Rhythm of the Wild makes Gishath uncounterable as well as a haste enabler for other Dinos or a +1/+1 counter source to help against Marauding/Forerunner's damage to a creature. Jeska's Will can make ramp to cast a fast Gishath for as low as five mana. Make seven or more red mana with Will then add any one white mana and any one green mana.

Otepec Huntmaster as a ramp source is better than Kinjalli's Caller because Huntmaster is also a haste enabler for a Dino and rarely will you have white mana turn one to cast Caller. Apex Altisaur is a big Dino who's an upgrade for Burning Sun's Avatar repeatable fight with enrage and it fights an opponent's creature when it ETB.

Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista would help color fixing because then Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Mountain Valley can search for a dual land and Battle lands have interaction with lots of basic lands. Path of Ancestry is a good budget Rainbow land for tribal since repeatable scry is helpful. Mosswort Bridge's hideaway can easily be triggered with Dinos. Some other budget lands are Battlefield Forge, Naya Panorama, Ash Barrens.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I’ve been thinking about putting back Garruk's Uprising, but was hesitant because of the 4 power requirement. I totally forgot about it being able to give trample to all my creatures. Cutting Vanquisher's Banner makes a lot of sense now, I thought it was an auto-include because of the dino’s +1/+1. I’m definitely switching them.

I’ve been looking for an Apex Altisaur since I started building this deck, along with a Bellowing Aegisaur. Don’t want to pay for shipping for just those two, but I’ll include them in the deck once available. Replacing Burning Sun's Avatar and Thundering Spineback for them sounds like a good choice.

I need to get a Rhythm of the Wild and an Exotic Orchard.

I also opened a Commander Legends draft box 2 days ago and was lucky enough to pull a Jeweled Lotus. I’m thinking of adding it here too for a possible turn 2 Gishath. :) I also got a Command Tower, Arcane Signet, Three Visits and Path of Ancestry. I’ve been meaning to remove as much tap lands as I can. I will also get some check lands and pain lands in a few days through a trade. I’ll update this deck over the weekend.

What bothers me most is how much ramp spells and how many mana rocks should I have? Am I running enough lands at 36?

Thank you!

Hey, nice first budget version of Gishath. Good job on the win.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Several of these cards are in Commander Legends, the new Magic set just released. The prices of these cards will be decreasing.

Good luck with your deck.

Thank you for outlining those other combos Pikobyte! You are exactly right. I actually didn't even realize one of those combos is thing. Great suggestions! While I want to stay away from eldrazi titans, I have included Burning Sun's Avatar, because that is right on theme for what I am looking for in this.

Great suggestion all around! :D

You could add 4 different infinite combos here that win you the game on the spot by abusing atlas ability. All you need is either Purphoros, God of the Forge or Burning Sun's Avatar in the deck, an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and these combos.

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with purphoros triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.

DeinoStinkus and Pikobyte

I've made a few edits today and have decided on a few others to make the next time I am at my local card shop, thanks for the help.

However, I have one other question: I can see where all the suggested cards are good for the deck except Burning Sun's Avatar, where is the value in his ability? From what I see, his effect only triggers when he enters, so great I ping an opponent and destroy another egg for free, but it literally doesn't matter if I already have one of my sac-outlets available. Can one of you help me see the value?

Thanks.

Ok, you got all the combo parts already but actually did only explain 1 out of 4 infinite’s in your deck. I’ll list them in case you don’t know of them. If you add a Purphoros or Burning Sun's Avatar, and any eldrazi titans to reshuffle your grave to your deck, each of them instantly wins the game:

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with purphoros/burning suns triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with purphoros/burning suns triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with purphoros/burning suns triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.

Pretty similar to my deck. Add in Runed Stalactite and Mirror Entity and you got 3 more infinite combos in addition to your altar and thornbite combo. Add in Burning Sun's Avatar or Purphoros, God of the Forge and you got 4 instant-win combos in total.
