flapjackwars on The Jeremy Renner App Experience

Cool deck! I love the concept and some of the more niche cards here.

Mogg Salvage is a slam dunk here. Free spells in general will enable you to tap out for Jeremy Renner more often and still be able to use him in a pinch. Maybe Snuff Out and Thunderclap are worth considering too. I'm not sure I'd go as far as Gut Shot and Pyrokinesis but you could think about it. Corpse Dance and Slaughter give you as many Tor triggers as you can pay for with the buyback. You Are Already Dead can be like a one-time Bladebrand and it cantrips which I feel like is pretty important for your deck. On that note, you might want some more card draw

wallisface Thanks for your valuable input. Unfortunately I can't buy Ledger Shredder, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer or Murktide Regent yet, they're too expensive. Gonna brew some decks with Manamorphose. I thought about using creature cards like Monastery Swiftspear, Sprite Dragon and Dreadhorde Butcher with Mutagenic Growth, Gut Shot and Manamorphose for explosive damage.

Or even Grapeshot or Gut Shot

Grapeshot won’t trigger prowess but it could be the bullet to get lethal in the right sequence

Some thoughts:

  • i think your current creature selection require far too much mana to be useful. Ideally in a prowess deck you want to be as-low-to-the-ground as possible, so you can apply pressure early and secure a fast win. I’d suggest ditching all your creatures that cost 3-or-more mana. Replacements to consider include Monastery Swiftspear, Soul-Scar Mage and Sprite Dragon. If you’re able to afford Manamorphose, then Stormwing Entity becomes a good pick also. You probably only want your creature count to be around 18-19.

  • I don’t know why Unstable Mutation is here.

  • For some more useful spells, i’d suggest Gut Shot, Lava Dart, Lightning Bolt, and Mutagenic Growth. I’d advise on not using cards like Counterspell, as they generally don’t help your creatures get anywhere useful (its a potential sideboard card).

I hate to bring you the bad news, but norin will exile himself when you try to attack with him. For the deck, an idea you could try if you are interested, is using a small artifact package with Goblin Engineer to tutor/put helix into play. I almost suggested Gut Shot as a alternate kill spell since you could pay life for it, but you would die first paying the life.

I think you could still benefit from Kiln Fiend in this deck. I would definitely play it over Jhessian Thief, since the mana cost and the "prowess" potential is more powerful. It would also make Of One Mind much easier to cast.

Free spell are great in these builds. Mutagenic Growth is probably the best for this deck. There's also Gut Shot. Manamorphose can help fix your mana, cantrips and is mana neutral.

While not free, Lava Dart triggers prowess twice and deals damage anywhere.

Faithless Looting is an excellent card draw spell that will be much more reliable than Of One Mind.

Temur Battle Rage will definitely speed up your clock massively.

I would think about cutting back to 2 copies of Izzet Charm, Removing all the Flame Slashes and Of One Minds as well as the Cartouches and Clouts. If you bring your mana curve down, you could also shave 1-2 lands.

If you do cut lands, you might want to replace Boilerworks with basics or something like Volatile Fjord. This will make opening hands with 1 land easier to keep.

lhetrick13 on Dinosaurs Tribal

This deck looks like it plays very similar to my dino tribal (Spared No Expense!!!) in the main theme is to trigger the Enrage ability of the many dinosaurs. Main difference is yours focuses on pumping the dinos with +1/+1 counters with either Bellowing Aegisaur or their own ability and then multiplying the effect with Hardened Scales.

The main thing I would suggest is this deck needs some speed...Your average creature cost is roughly 3.5 CMC and you are only running 20 lands. You do have 3xOtepec Huntmaster to lower the cost of those dinos but generally, I feel like you are consistently going to be hurting for land to cast dinosaurs if you do not start with or draw Siegehorn Ceratops or Otepec Huntmaster.

You are also running a lot of great instants/sorceries/enchantments for your theme but I think you are going to have to sacrifice some of those to make room for some extra lands and maybe even some more cards to lower the cost of the dinos. Right now, it just seems like the deck will take until like turn 4-5 to start hitting a stride and you do not have any interactions besides Savage Stomp or some spells that deal a targeted 1 damage or a general 1 damage to really slow down an opponent.

I love the idea of the deck as a you can make Siegehorn Ceratops a monster on turn 3 with a Rile followed by a Savage Stomp when Hardened Scales is in play but that is an ideal hand...I am trying to make suggestions for when you do not get that hand.

A card you might consider instead of Gut Shot would be Marrow Shards. Both share the no cost ability and instant speed but Marrow Shards can be used for defense or a mass enrage trigger when your dinos attack. The loss is you can not hit a player for 1 damage any longer...pros and cons.
