5/25/2021 Update - completed Glen Elendra Pranksters (Klefki) and Drover of the Mighty (Onix).

Klefki was the best choice for the Pranksters because Klefki is fairy type, has the Prankster ability, has moves which protect allies similar to Pranksters' effect, and Pranksters' flavor text is about a "faerie ring". So yeah I will fight you if you try to tell me I picked the wrong poke for this one.

Drover of the Mighty's mtg art reminded me of Brock and Onix, so that's why I chose Onix for this one. I may foil-peel a Brock card and stick him on there. Thoughts?

Hey, good start on a low budget.

Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Command Tower are three staples cards for Commander. Dinos and Gishath can benefit from ramp since Gishath is 8 mana and the better Dinos are also high CMC. Ramp can come from mana rocks such as Sol Ring, but you're playing green thus you also have access to lots of other ramp options (land ramp spells, mana dorks, land auras). Land ramp spells can search for and put a dual land or basic land onto the battlefield. Mana dorks are creatures who can tap for mana and land auras are enchantments that can enchant a land to tap that land for more mana then you can normally make.


Some budget Dinos to consider adding:

Creature tutors, repeatable draw sources and other ways to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield are all helpful effects to have.

If you would like I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Interesting article - thanks for that!

It's always tricky adjusting decks so that your main plan happens.

Getting Ghalta, Primal Hunger on the field ASAP is the main goal, and that happens faster with other big Dinos, than it does with Knight of the Stampede

Bigger Dinos also let this deck hold on, before Ghalta hits the field.

StuBi hates decks that are more than one colour, so splashing isn't going to happen.

It would also lead to more expensive cards and/or a slower deck. Since the meta is fast at the moment, that isn't going to work.

I have incorporated Drover of the Mighty , which is a great suggestion, from the article.

It's worth noting that when transitioning from standard to modern, a lot of cards that seem like powerful contributors to a tribe end up being worse than non-tribal counterparts. For instance, Thunderherd Migration is probably better than the standard alternative Beneath the Sands , but it's probably worse than Rampant Growth , Cultivate , or maybe Sylvan Scrying with the right nonbasic to fetch. Drover of the Mighty is another that seems strong as a 3/3, but if you're tapping it for mana most of the time anyway, something like Birds of Paradise , Arbor Elf , Joraga Treespeaker , Incubation Druid , Whisperer of the Wilds , or Ilysian Caryatid might be more efficient. The only other suggestion I have is to consider adding ways to recurrently trigger enrage. Forerunner of the Empire is a pretty common option, but I can also see Pyrohemia , Harbinger of the Hunt , Raging Regisaur , Spikeshot Elder , or Power of Fire being used with varying pros and cons. Some enrage lists I see also make use of damage trigger shenanigans on cards like Arcbond and Rite of Passage . A possible cut could be Shifting Ceratops since it's generally more of a sideboard card. Otherwise, I'd cut any enrage trigger that isn't either repeatable or very cheap. Reckless Rage is great, but Tilonalli's Crown could just as easily be Dual Shot or something to that effect. A final note I'd make is that you may be able to take advantage of some of the bigger enrage dinos like Snapping Sailback and Silverclad Ferocidons . I wouldn't normally recommend them, however, Etali and a lot of ramp go a long way toward making them viable.

I don’t believe Drover of the Mighty dies to Marauding Raptor. The plus 2 ability is a ETB effect, which means Drover already has the +3/+3.

Hmmmm ... perhaps you could lean a little more on green and use Drover of the Mighty / Channeler Initiate / Paradise Druid and/or Song of Freyalise / Cryptolith Rite to go with Sylvan Caryatid for mana fixing/ramp. If you're not playing against Slivers, Manaweft Sliver also works like another mana dork. As for reaching devotion, have you considered some of the new multicolored nights from standard? Knights such as: Oakhame Ranger , Fireborn Knight , or Truefire Captain . Considering your commander I think Hero of Precinct One would net a lot of value here. Hope this helps.
