Woehrlebird, I delete decks often, so you should copy it if you are interested.

Ramp the is good with Lumra: Lotus Field Harrow Roiling Regrowth Springbloom Druid

Support for Lumra: Panharmonicon Amulet of Vigor

To help shuffle your graveyard back into your deck after you milled too much: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

The rest is optimized good stuff: landfall and cheating cards in with Apex Devastator, Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant and Last March of the Ents.

Also, Monogreen mass haste: Surrak and Goreclaw Concordant Crossroads

TheRoaringRegisaur you're absolutely right, I haven't updated my list to reflect my current iteration. It includes more copies of both Tyrranax Rex and Tyrranax Atrocity, and a few copies of Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant. Thanks for pointing that out though, I'm due for an update.

Real fun combo I've run into with my Gishath deck is to be able to cheat out Earthshaker Dreadmaw and Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant in the same turn. Draw a card for each dino you control, then drop Ghalta to put all creature cards from your hand onto the battlefield.

Couple goodies you may like:

Berserkers' Onslaught is a redundant way to give double strike that's usually harder to remove than Goring Ceratops, though I personally run both.

The Skullspore Nexus lets you double a creature's power in a deck that wants to turn creatures sideways. May as well, right? Could also do Xenagos, God of Revels for the same reason as Nexus.

The ability is more or less single use, and it depletes your hand. It's not unreasonable to use it to try to win the game that turn, but 1. That comes with the territory of being a high-mana mythic, and 2. It doesn't really win the game by itself. It doesn't grant haste, and it doesn't directly deal damage or mill. If you use it incorrectly, it becomes worse than useless, as you over extend into a board wipe or something, losing both your board and your hand.

Of course, it's easy enough to say "if you play wrong, you're going to lose." Looking at whether the ability is actually overpowered, Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant has an effect comparable to Myojin of Life's Web (which has an option for indestructibility) or Rise of the Dark Realms (a black deck's graveyard can easily be on par with a green deck's hand), and less efficient than Primal Surge (play everything in hand vs. play everything in your deck). So the ability exists in this mana range, trading heavier color weight for a slightly lower cost.

For the mana value/stats ratio, creatures have been generally trending better, especially in green. When Ghalta and Mavren team up, the result is even more mana-efficient. Yargle and Multani has 24 total P/T for just six mana and no restrictions. So Ghalta's mana value/stats ratio is notable, but not extreme or unprecendented.

Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant provides a lot of value for a high cost, and when used intelligently can win the game on the spot. The same can be said for almost every other high-mana mythic rare card, many of which are on the same or higher power level.

I know that I ask this question every time that a powerful new creature is printed, but I believe that it is justified, each time, so how is the new Ghalta, Stampede Tyrant balanced? It is a 12/12 creature for 8 mana, which is already an insanely good bargain, but it even has a powerful triggered ability, with no downside, so I fail to see how it is at all balanced.

What does everyone else say about this? How is the new Ghalta remotely balanced?
