Etali, Primal Storm

Legendary Creature — Dinosaur

Whenever Etali, Primal Storm attacks, exile the top card of each player's library, then you may cast any number of nonland cards exiled this way without paying their mana costs.

Looks fun!

Workhorse goes infinite with Emiel. Infinite ETB triggers. Infinite mana with Heartstone out.

Charming Prince is a neat card. You don't go infinite with it, but if you're against decks that permanently steals cards (Etali, Primal Storm, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, etc) this can get them back. And if you have enough mana, you can bounce it repeatedly to save creatures from boardwipes.

Be careful with Yisharn, its ability prevents you from going infinite with Brood Monitor, since you have to sacrifice the eldrazi for mana.

You may want to consider adding some low mana ETB creatures for tempo. Right now Emiel is cheaper than most of your pay off creatures, so you're going Ramp -> Turn 3 Emiel -> Turn 4 Creature (4/5/6 drop) -> Turn 5 actually getting to activate Emiel for extra value. Wall of Blossoms, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Omens, etc are good chump blockers, replace themselves, and can accelerate you earlier than the big creatures that are targets for removal.

One thing I don't get is why Polyraptor is there, it's a good card but I don't see much synergy with Emiel?

DawnsRayofLight - I was thinking about your suggestions a lot over the past couple of days. They made me bring up the topic with one of my good friends in my play group, "Do you ever feel like you have to undo the 'contemporary EDH' mindset of omitting 6+ CMC bomb-y permanents because they'll be removal bait?" We talked about it for a while, and he made the important point that although we aim for optimization where we can, a lot of our most memorable moments came from people slamming down something splashy.

TL;DR - Thought a lot about your feedback and talked to a friend about it. Made another round of edits and swapped out some situational value and passive defensive effects in my 4 cmc slots for Etali, Primal Storm, Elder Brain, Fervent Charge, and a couple instants.

This deck hit surprisingly hard for its budget! I usually play Etali, Primal Storm and found this to be a more fair, watered-down version of it.

Keeping in line with the budget theme, I think that this deck would do well with a few more ways to generate tokens en masse, through cards like Secure the Wastes and Mercy Killing. Mirror Entity and Strionic Resonator can help buff tokens up further. Moraug, Fury of Akoum and Relentless Assault can also help in getting multiple buffs and swinging multiple times. Something like Make a Stand can also be a budget option that helps keep creatures around.

Glad you you're getting a better sense of direction with your deck mr5cientific. I think my deck started out trying to do a little bit of everything that Isshin is capable of, and over time I've started leaning more and more into the aggro elements.

For what it's worth, I think if you keep any Vigilance anthem, Brave the Sands might be the best one, since it gives your creatures extra blocking capabilities. Def makes your board "bigger", especially after boardwipe rebuilds.

The extra combat step stuff seemed so tricky to set up and pull off consistently when I play tested it. If there is any other "sub-variant" for Isshin that I was thinking of recently, is a list centered around Party, and incorporating Burakos, Party Leader and other Party support in the 99. Red has a lot of Wizards and Warriors which kinda makes up for some of the more lack luster ones in Black and White.

Thank you, I'm glad you like my list! I've been updating a lot, and try to keep the primer as up to date as possible. I haven't had a chance to play Elder Brain yet, but it seems like it could pack a punch. I'm also considering swapping out Hellrider for Etali, Primal Storm to have another top end threat/value piece. I had Etali in earlier versions of the deck, but removed her due to being big removal bait. I'll be updating the list at least once every couple months with new, never-ending set releases, and after any games played.

Radiant_Draconis - I need to try out Etali, Primal Storm. He has been in the back of my mind for a while now as his ability is pretty cool.

Some pretty significant changes! I am surpirsed you are dropping Savage Stomp, I love that card and it is so effective in a dino deck for removal and triggering enrage. I like the adding of Etali, Primal Storm he is a great cheating card to play some stuff for free. I also like that you added in some acceleration with Otepec Huntmaster. His ability to provide haste to a fresh cast dino can really hurt...Etali, Primal Storm is a good candidate for that combo.

Did Atzocan Seer not work well for you? I feel like for his cost, it is a little underwhelming; hence why it has not made it into my deck.

BTW, just look for me in MTGO for a prehistoric rumble! I would love to play against this deck!
