Carnage Tyrant occurrence in decks from the last year

I love AEtherize - people never see it coming and it can utterly wreck a swarm or aggro deck, buying you time to set up your win con. Probably a sideboard though. Gotta figure something more direct, like Carnage Tyrant wouldn't go amiss here either. Just my two cents.

do you play mono red because you really like red or because you just really dislike all the other colors? more colors means more options. green in particular will have a lot of things that can't be countered, or has hexproof. or both like Carnage Tyrant. theres also Veil of Summer.

MagicMarc: Guttural Response still has green in its color identity, but i do think he should consider adding green at a minimum.

I'd cut pretty much all your creatures. If your trying to make this modern viable. There are just so many better options. Keep Azusa, Lost but Seeking Carnage Tyrant and Thrun, the Last Troll and Lotus Cobra. Primeval Titan is the best green creature in the game if you add in more instans and sorcery Delver of Secrets  Flip is incredible

Forgot to ask earlier, but I would love to hear your thoughts on Season of Growth, Path of Discovery, Vanquisher's Banner, and Carnage Tyrant. It seems like the deck has plenty of ramp, so the mentioned cards seem like they would get cast easily enough and add some more card advantage. Also, I just love Carnage Tyrant too much so seeing it not included in a dino deck, I just had to ask.

There are other cuts to consider as well, but I feel these are the more noteworthy ones....

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild - No direct synergy with Xenagos, you want a beater with evasion or protection

Beast Whisperer - Better in decks that are lower to the ground that can better use it's ability

Brash Taunter - "No synergy with Xenagos"

God-Eternal Rhonas - Better in decks that go wide, this gets easily chump blocked. You rarely have more than 1 creature out at a time

Klothys, God of Destiny - "No synergy with Xenagos"

Leyline Tyrant - Better in red decks, while not recomending it, glorybringer would be better IMO as it acts as removal as well

Phylath, World Sculptor - No synergy with....

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger - Not enough ramp to hard cast, no cheating effects (which wont even give you a cast trigger)

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre - See above

Shadowspear - Meta call? Better to have creatures with trample or more ramp and card draw in this slow

Triumph of the Hordes - Hit or miss. Playing a beater, hoping it survives, casting this next turn and hoping they dont have removal. Ignoring the feelbad of infect

Berserkers' Onslaught - Winmore

Vernal Bloom - Symmetrical ramp which you can't even take full advantage of

Nissa, Who Shakes the World - This is ok, I like the vigilance and getting essentially a 6/6. Rather have something more impactful.

Atarka, World Render - Beater with evasion

Balefire Dragon - Beater with evasion that also destroys decks that go wide

Carnage Tyrant - Beater with protection, evasion and anti-blue. Nice to use a mass draw spell knowing they can't remove the creature in response

Etali, Primal Storm - Not needed, but fun! Lots of value, doesn't require combat damage

Farhaven Elf - Ramp for T4 Xenagos

Fierce Empath - Tutor

Inferno Titan - Removal

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal

Malignus - GG target player

Savage Ventmaw - Beater with evasion and helps build tempo

Scourge of the Throne - Destroy people's lifetotal

Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Ramp and potential wincon

Siege Behemoth - Beater with evasion

Somberwald Sage - Ramp

Springbloom Druid - Ramp for T4 Xenagos

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - Land when you need it, beater when you don't

Dread Statuary - Manland to be used as potential beater or for draw spell

Rishkar's Expertise - Draw + Tempo. Powerful!

Life's Legacy - Draw

Momentous Fall - Similar to above, to be used in response to removal

Berserk - Use on selvala, malignus or even an opposing creature attacking one of your opponents!

Sylvan Library - Nice but not needed

First of all please put a CMDR Behind your COmmander :) I would recoment Nighthawk Scavenger its a better Vampire Nighthawk. Soulflayer as a backup would be possible. Carnage Tyrant and Nightveil Predator are also a nice cards to give Rayami Keywords. Mistcutter Hydra will protect you from blue

You and I think quite alike, it seems. Seeing how our peers have designed their decks has helped me a lot as well. :)

I've been sharing your sentiments regarding sacrifice and discard outlets. That is actually the prime reason I've added Fauna Shaman, Tortured Existence, Bontu the Glorified and Greater Good, although their effects are good on their own as well.

Targeted graveyard hate is definitely the most glaring weakness of this type of deck. I have also ruminated a lot on how to solve the Bojuka Bog problem. Like you suggest, among the most prominent inclusions are Aegis of the Gods and Leyline of Sanctity. In addition, I've also considered running Orbs of Warding, Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Sigarda, Heron's Grace. Out of these, Aegis of the Gods is the one I'm the most likely to add. I find them all a bit difficult to add to my list, however. The angels don't give you hexproof in the graveyard. They, and Leyline all cost 4 mana which is a little too pricy. Aegis has the upside of being only two mana, but I really want to try and limit the amount of creatures without keywords. I may refrain from adding it until after that time I get completely blown out by a Bojuka Bog lol.

My official Plan B is Oketra the True, either Kunoros, Hound of Athreos or Akroma, Angel of Wrath and either Sporeweb Weaver or Carnage Tyrant which add up to 7 or 8 counters.

Oh, and my favourite secret weapon is equipping Lord of Extinction with Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and place all the keyword counters on it with Kathril. Not so subtle, but very effective. People tend to hyperfocus on the fact that Kathril is in the command zone. :)
