Brago, Count of Paliano

Legendary Creature - Human Noble

Whenever ~ or a Noble Creature enters the battlefield, you may draw a card.

Whenever a Human Creature you control becomes tapped, if it is not your Combat step, create a 1/1 Human Noble Token.


"If there is to be an arrangement made, let it be not by force of steel, but by the gentleness of humility."

It not only works for his lore as a prequel to his known card, Brago, King Eternal, but with this iteration as well. I could def see him working in 60 and 100 card formats, no problem. Pretty solid card all around, and some more help in the Noble tribe!

We have Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip, but not any others. How sad. So, for the Next Challenge, create your favorite Transformer!

Maybe cards like Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip, that care about vehicles would be a better option?

Deadpoo111, thanks for the comment and +1 - each point gets me closer and closer to that fabled ~500 upvotes. Currently, that's the upvote count to beat, with the only other tribal deck I have to compete with is the Professor's introductory sliver build. I referenced it in my deck description, but I just need to fix it up as I need to strip out all the javascript. Speaking of the Professor of Tolarian Community College, he'll be a guest at the upcoming CommandFest in D.C. we'll be meeting up at. And yes, i'll be bringing this monstrosity along with me. As a reminder you'll be cosplaying Ral Zarek, yes? To identify me, i'll be carrying around a large Grimlock Transformer in box. To clarify, I also pilot Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip - as he is insanely cool for a Dino commander. That decklist is The Predator of Predators, in case you were curious. what decks are you bringing along?

Mortlocke on Do you switch between Commanders …

Question - how many of you have EDH decks where you swap between different commanders based on the meta? I just came to the conclusion that for one of my decks, I definitely need to have two different commanders (that aren't partner commanders) because they're both awesome and represent everything I love about Dinosaurs.

Currently, i'm suggesting that tappedout give players the ability to tag an additional card as an "Alternate" commander - to better represent their builds and how they operate. I made a feature request thread (linked here) and want to see how many other players would be interested in such a feature. Please comment on the thread so that it'll gain traction - and hopefully the attention of one of the devs!

Additionally, which separate commanders do you have for your decks? I'll go first: For my Dinosaur tribal deck The Predator of Predators I normally go with Zacama, Primal Calamity . But for more casual fun metas I use Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip. Real story - I pulled out Grimlock at an LGS, and a little kid (around 12, I think) said "That a transformer? Huh, shame that they're so lame now". That hurt my soul - kids these days don't know nothin' about nothin.

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Story of Saheeli and Huatli

I have to admit: I didn't read a lot of the Ixalan Storyline, but one thing caught my attention: It ended with Saheeli Rai and Huatli, Radiant Champion teaming up and talking about how awesome dinosaurs are. And as Saheeli is known for robofying cats or dinosaurs, this propably means we'll get some robo-dinos in the future.

As there are several storylines we don't usually attend to, I hope we'll get to see something of this after War of the Spark.

Wizards propably won't go back to Kaladesh for a while considering how mechanic E annihilated standard. Ixalan will return at some point as the sun empire is heading to Torrezon so it can grow its power. It's hard to imagine having Huatli help the empire after realizing how winners write the history in Ixalan storyline. But still, it would make sense if the two walkers show up in the set. An appearance in another world would be awesome as well, though.

What's your thoughts on this? Are you expecting Robodinos as well? Where? How? Looking at you, Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip.

Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip

He's not technically legal, so I would ask your playgroup, as he is a silver-bordered card.

That's what I think too.

In other news, Huatli and Saheeli making friends sounds so awesome. I can't help but imagine Saheeli making a new gearhulk combined with a regisaur and then we get an amazing canon version of Grimlock, Dinobot Leader  Flip.
