Congregation at Dawn Discussion

I forgot a couple cards for putting creatures on top of your library. Congregation at Dawn works well with Sunforger, and Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is cheap reanimation.

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.

Good luck with your deck.

TriusMalarky on NOT Tribal

Sounds plausible. IMO, there's not much in elemental tribal that's all that great for edh. So it'd effectively be a 5-color interactive deck with a handful of ways to tutor out the entire combo.

Buried Alive, Congregation at Dawn, Hermit Druid with no basics(easy in a 5 color deck), and a couple other tools can help it out.

You should also go super heavy on green, and mana dorks. You'll also want a good number of 2-mana rocks, mostly talismans, Fellwar Stone and Arcane Signet.

Then, add some random high power draw engines. Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Verity Circle are great. Just draw, draw, draw off them. Ramp, and hold up high power interaction.

I would like to see both Congregation at Dawn and Signal the Clans (preferably downgraded to an uncommon) reprinted in this set, since they are both quite useful cards that have never been reprinted.

Apex devastator is the first chimera hydra in this game, and I see that it is as powerful as one would expect from such a creature.

Cuombajj Witches is a most unexpected reprint, but the new artwork is very nice.

psionictemplar on GW REANIMATOR

That's basically what I was doing. I ran the same 1 drops in max copies and used Time of Need to tutor iona up if I needed to. I also tried Congregation at Dawn to stack the deck for Fa'adiyah Seer. I never felt great about the build and scrapped it after a couple days of goldfishing. I may proxy your version up to see how I like it as well.

Trample enablers:

These two are good bombs... Aggressive Mammoth Thunderfoot Baloth

These cards are just valuable cheap trample enablers... Primal Rage, Ferocity of the Wilds, Archetype of Aggression, Khenra Charioteer

Garruk's Uprising is a good draw source when you populate 5/5 dragon tokens.

Brawn is a good creature to sacrifice early. It is more annoying for your opponents to deal with. The effect works from the graveyard, and draws out graveyard removal.

Additional Suggestions:

Also, there's an interaction with Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero + Mirror Entity + Atla Palani, Nest Tender that might interest you.

Reinforcements is a card that acts the same as Congregation at Dawn but in the late game, after board wipes and spot removal.

Also consider Kogla, the Titan Ape as he is opponent creature removal, artifact and enchantment removal, and can protect Atla Palani, Nest Tender from removal and board wipes with his last ability.

AEther Flash will kill all your eggs instantly, and make sure your opponents are punished for Avenger of Zendikar, tokens, weenies, etc.

Both Scapegoat and Fanatical Devotion are extremely valuable sacrifice outlets which can save select creatures from removal and board wipes.

Hey, nice Scroll Rack Invention :)

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staple budget cards in Commander. At TCGPlayer you can find Sol for less than $3 and Tower for less than $1. Congregation at Dawn is a good budget creature tutor with Gishath. Cast it the same turn you want play Gishath or the turn before to tutor for and arrange the top of your library with any three Dinos to cheat onto the battlefield. Forerunner of the Empire is a Dino tutor (puts the Dino on top of your library) and a repeatable enrage enabler when a Dino you control ETB.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the better budget Dinos since it can be a repeatable source of Dino tokens since many other Dinos have trample especially with Ghalta. Crasher combines well with Garruk's Uprising which can be a repeatable draw source and can give all creatures you control trample. Ripjaw Raptor has a powerful enrage ability to draw a card when it takes damage. Rhythm of the Wild makes all creatures you cast uncounterable and it gives nontoken creatures when they ETB the option of haste or make it bigger with a +1/+1 counter.

With Orcish Lumberjack sacing a Forest you control can make four mana since you can tap the Forest for mana before you sac it which can be a quick way to ramp into Gishath or other Dinos. Farseek is two drop land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Stomping Ground, Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. At TCGPlayer can get Vista and Glade for less than $2 each.

Hey, you've done well overall with card selection on a current $300 budget. The good parts of your deck are the robust Dragon base and the nice selection of Planeswalkers. What can be improved is the manabase, more ramp/color fixing for five colors and more repeatable draw/tutors.

The manabase is slow with the Thriving lands and the Vivid lands which all ETB tapped. My advice is keep five Thriving lands, cut the Vivid lands and one Thriving land? Replace them with lands that have interaction with basic lands because there's 21 basic lands here. The five budget Battle lands can help the manabase since they have interaction with lots of basic lands to ETB untapped and Farseek can search for one of them.

Cascading Cataracts is a helpful land to cast Ur-Dragon and Crop Rotation can tutor for it. Rotation can be sac a basic land to tutor for any land and put it onto the battlefield. The five Triomes especially Forest ones would be upgrades for Thriving lands: Indatha Triome ($5), Ketria Triome ($6) and Zagoth Triome ($7). The prices of Triomes are displayed wrong here, they're all much less price. Land ramp that can interact with Triomes can really help with color fixing. Skyshroud Claim, Nature's Lore, Wood Elves can search for a Forest Triome and Farseek can search for any Triome.

8 additional mana sources that are 3 CMC or lower is a low amount for a 4.7 avg CMC deck with only 36 lands. Consider a few more sources of ramp/color fixing? The most important cards to want to cast in the early game is ramp or a repeatable draw source.


Some more budget tutors could replace some of the lesser Dragons. More low CMC tutors can get the better Dragons/other cards while also lowering the mana curve.

Low CMC repeatable draw sources when Dragons ETB are very good especially ones that trigger when a Dragon token is created. Ascendancy and Kiora are here, but consider more? The more of these enchantments you have the better chance you have of getting one onto the battlefield before you start casting Dragons.

Dragonlord Ojutai is a four drop Dragon thanks to the Ur-Dragon. It can potentially be repeatable Anticipate card advantage. The selection of what card you put into your hand is what makes it good on a budget.

Good luck with your deck.
