Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

Consider creating tokens to sac with Asmadi as well: Dragonlair Spider and Grave Titan

Asmadi is always a huge threat so you'll have to keep him safe with cards like Sylvan Safekeeper Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak.

Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.

Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.

Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.

Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.

This looks fun, good job. One suggestion: Maybe replace Aid from the Cowl? It just feels really slow, and you don't even have many ways to trigger it continuously. Vivien's Arkbow or Call of the Wild would both be great replacements. I'm also not too big of a fan of both Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse here. If I see it correctly, you have one landfall ability, and besides that, it'd only help you triggering Aid. Maybe just play two Forest instead?

Heaven / Earth / earth - choice to deal with pesky flyers or kill all eggs for 3 Downdraft - dont try to fly over the egg wall Call of the Wild - topdeck a creature Ghired's Belligerence - good burn with the option of sacing an egg as well plus you get a populate Reinforcements - put three dinos on top of deck yummy Aura Shards - sideboard for when you face Mario. each egg naturalizes. Not Forgotten - top of library a dinosaur and get a populate target Mwonvuli Beast Tracker - literally every dinosaur has trample. top of the library. Forerunner of the Empire - same deal. costs more but you can wipe your eggs all out at once when a dinosaur comes into play

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

Thanks bushido_man96 and lifemtg.

Mayael the Anima was included as an homage to my original deck and I thought she might be a decent back up plan if Atla Palani, Nest Tender was shut down. However, I agree that her activation cost is probably too costly, and I haven't built the deck with enough 5+ power creatures to make her hit consistently.

Call of the Wild is an interesting card, but I think it runs into consistency issues without the addition of more top deck manipulation. Plus I've been noticing with some early testing that I don't need much more than Atla to get things going.

I'd love to add Sylvan Library into the deck, but alas, I only own one copy and that is already being put to use in my Lord Windgrace deck.

Evolutionary Leap and High Market are definitely solid suggestions that I'll have to consider for this deck. Right now I think I'll replace Mayael with one of Selfless Spirit , Riftsweeper , or Remorseful Cleric . They are all good early creatures with powerful utility abilities.

Defense of the Heart is something else that I am considering since I own a copy and it can go find the 2 raptors, or Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Archetype of Endurance .

bushido_man96 yet Mayael has more of a chance of hitting a creature, kinda a scry. Call of the Wild has one chance of hitting a creature, and if it isn't one, then dump it in your graveyard. I feel like if you want a fast game, you should probably take Mayael out, but definitely is not worth switching it out with Call of the Wild . Just my opinion, others opinions may vary

I'd cut Mayael the Anima and consider running Call of the Wild . Mayael is too Mana intensive for a chance at missing. A sac outlet to go along with this deck would be Evolutionary Leap and/or Birthing Pod .

For more library manipulation, Sylvan Library and Scroll Rack , if you can afford them.

+1 my friend!

Stacking the top of your library with Mayael is great. Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , and Sensei's Divining Top are great for this. Illusionist's Bracers is a solid piece of equipment for Mayael, allowing you to perhaps get two creatures out. She's mana-intensive, too, so you need ramp: Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent are worth considering.

I see the appeal of playing with Mayael, but I've found her to be way to slow and too mana-intensive to be worth playing. A great card that fits the same theme is Call of the Wild , which has a cheaper activation that is repeatable. Zoologist is better, than Mayeal, even though she has to tap, too. Both are great to run for some redundancy.
