Any sort of ETB effect will be perfect.

Also Flameshadow Conjuring would be perfect to get double triggers off of your creatures, and it gives the token haste so you can swing without losing much since it'd be exiled at your end step anyway. This way you get twice the value off of the ETB and you can swing for some boardstate pressure.

HERE is a list of creatures in Rakdos that have Madness.

Strategic Anticipation

Instant - Trap

Counter target spell. If the spell being targeted was cast with an alternative casting cost, this spell costs to cast.

I was hoping you'd do something foolish.

Thank you Naksu!

I basically took my Nikya of the Old Ways deck and upgraded it via Ilharg, who lets you cast non-creature spells as well as ramping you into your big finishers. I like Domri, Anarch of Bolas for the sideboard against control once I know being countered often is a possibility.

The reasoning for Druid of the Cowl over Paradise Druid is to avoid early removal such as Goblin Chainwhirler . It's regularly used where I play. Incubation Druid is a thought, but ultimately I chose to go with old reliable a little while longer. I will definitely be looking at Incubation Druid once rotation happens!

Nissa, Who Shakes the World is completely insane in this deck and often creates massive amounts of . 5 mana is all you really need to go off in this deck.

Demanding Dragon has been an all-star so far and I highly recommend it!

I can definitely see Vivien's Arkbow having a home in this deck as well, I'm not sure what I'd cut just yet to make that happen, but I'll try to update it after I take it to FNM this weekend for sure.

Thanks for your insight!

I'm a gruul at heart and I like this draft. Obviously alot to move around at this point. couple remarks at this point, Carnage Tyrant and Rekindling Phoenix are the best options (imo) at their respective CMC spots, so run 4of both in main. Ravager Wurm is a SB card. 4 Ilharg s are too many, cause it's bad to pull another one with it. 3 should be enough with 3 Arkbow s. I also think you should run a few End-Raze Forerunners in place of Demanding Dragon s.

TypicalTimmy, I made room for Utvara Hellkite and Scourge of Valkas . I don't like the increase in mana curve, but the combo there-in is pretty devastating. I dropped Stormbreath Dragon and Demanding Dragon to make room.

I started with Modern as my first format. My deck list was a lot like yours, huge CMC creatures and tons of 1 ofs.

So a good place to start is to ask yourself, how do I want my deck to win? Once you figure out what the main way(s) your deck will win, then you can focus your game plan on making that happen.

You really want consistency in your deck. Try picking cards as 4 ofs instead of singletons. If you wouldn't want 4 copies of a card in your deck then it probably isn't worth running at all. (Please note this is only a beginner strategy to get you started and later in your career of magic this logic will no longer imply.) So to give yo a real world example: because you have a lot of big converted cost dinos, a card like Llanowar Elves is a card you would want 4 of. It helps your strategy by enabling ramp for big Dinos to come into play earlier.

So lets start there.

Pick your wincon. In your case Charging Monstrosaur or Demanding Dragon might be a good choice. I could see Aggressive Mammoth working as well.

So once you have how you're going to win, you need to pick cards that will help you enact that game plan. So if you picked Charging Monstrosaur then a play set of Otepec Huntmaster could be in order.

Lastly you'll need some form of interaction. Almost every deck in modern will have some form of interaction. You don't have to completely stop the opponent, just slow their plans enough for your plan to happen. A good choice for your deck would be Lightning Bolt but in your case Lightning Strike could work as a budget replacement. At high levels the difference in mana cost is huge but as someone new, it'll do just fine.
