BrassLord on Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs

Howdy! Gishath is a fun choice for dinosaur tribal, can't go too wrong!

In terms of general advice for cuts, I'd try to evaluate the cards in terms of if it wins the game or furthers your gameplan for the deck. For example, in your current decklist, Slayer's Cleaver doesn't seem to gel with either your ramp or dino matters themes, and it strikes me as a dead draw.

Also, while cool, Morophon, the Boundless unfortunately has the color identity of all 5 colors, so you can't "legally" run it with your current commander.

All in all though, I'd recommend focusing on cards that you enjoy playing, even if it's not "optimal!"

So with that out of the way, here are some cards I'd recommend cutting hahaha XD Frilled Deathspitter Thrash of Raptors Territorial Hammerskull Ravenous Daggertooth Frenzied Raptor Bonded Horncrest Rallying Roar Huatli's Spurring Slayer's Cleaver Overgrowth (There are cheaper cmc options that will both ramp AND color fix for you), Strength of the Pack .

Those are all cards that strike me as cool, but maybe worth cutting.

As for suggestions, Ikoria brought about a LOT of cool dinosaurs! Quartzwood Crasher can put in some work! I'd play Titanoth Rex over Ancient Brontodon as you can still cycle it for less mana, both are just big dumb creatures! It would take some cuts, but I've seen some people run Kaheera, the Orphanguard as a companion for your commander, so that could help you make some cuts as well? And for flavor Zilortha, Strength Incarnate is a flavor win!

I'd also recommend Kinjalli's Sunwing . It's a "hate dinosaur" that has evasion and can stall opponents enough that you can summon your big boy dinosaur! Speaking of, Apex Altisaur and Zacama, Primal Calamity are the biggest.

The thing I'd probably recommend adding over anything is Pyrohemia . It's a board wipe in a pinch (something that is needed to get to late game) and allows for some cheeky interactions that can be frustrating to deal with. It turns Siegehorn Ceratops Snapping Sailback and Bellowing Aegisaur into creatures that keep getting bigger or pump your entire team all while clearing the board for bigger attacks. Not to mention it also is a handy source for one ping damage for enrage triggers.

Hope these suggestions help! Happy hunting!

@DuTogira Personally, I disagree about Splinter Twin stifling diversity in the Modern meta. Before its ban I was running a homebrew Mardu deck that had an incredibly favorable win-rate against Twin. The deck's win-rates also varied amongst the other decks in the format with its worst matchup being burn. Ever since Twin's ban aggro has swarmed the format outpacing my deck harder than before.

My homebrew deck's most defining piece was utilizing an Evershrike in the graveyard and using a Spirit Loop or Rancor to make it a constant presence in the late game. Graveyard strategies weren't as common back then either as I believe Living Death was the only significant graveyard strat at the time, so most decks wouldn't dedicate too much room to graveyard hate. With Twin gone other faster and more efficient graveyard strategies arose and graveyard hate out of sideboard became all the more frequent which made winning games 2 and 3 much more difficult for my deck. Not only that but those graveyard strategies that couldn't exist with Splinter Twin around ended up getting Faithless Looting banned. As a non-blue deck Faithless Looting was the glue that kept my deck together as getting a certain 5-CMC creature in the grave and an aura in hand is difficult and slow enough as it is. My deck could handle Jund/Abzan's hand disruption and their Scavenging Ooze 's, but with much more graveyard hate, more aggressive aggro decks and no Faithless Looting I would argue banning Splinter Twin killed my deck even though I never used that card in the first place.

I feel the banning has only diversified aggro and phased out slower decks like mine that had better win rates against Twin and BGx. I also think it's a false positive as there have been a huge slew of new modern-viable cards that have been printed since Twin's banning. The format was going to grow regardless of if Twin were to be banned or not, the real question was by how much? I also feel like there have been many more cards printed during this time that could be made excellent sideboard cards against Twin than there have been new cards printed to help with Twin's strategies. I remember the times when Combust was one of the answers used at stopping Splinter Twin and then they printed Rending Volley which took countering the strategy even further. Since then I've seen more and more cards printed in Standard that I feel could further help in keeping Twin in check today more than it ever was before. These are cards printed after it's banning that could be used against it now if it were ever unbanned: Sinister Concoction , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Unsubstantiate , Spell Queller , Authority of the Consuls , Lost Legacy , Fatal Push , Harsh Mentor , Trespasser's Curse , Tocatli Honor Guard , Rampaging Ferocidon , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Kitesail Freebooter , Cast Down , Assassin's Trophy , Unmoored Ego , Dovin's Veto , Force of Negation , Force of Vigor , Veil of Summer , Fry , Aether Gust , Brazen Borrower , Hushbringer , Deafening Silence , Mystical Dispute , Drown in the Loch , Wilt and Necromentia . I've likely missed a couple more due to how many sets have been released since and there will always be more cards that will be printed in future that can disrupt the strategy too. Since there have been many new deck archetypes that have emerged and been developed and improved upon over the many years in a non-Twin environment I'd like to see how they'd stack against Twin now just to see if it really is still an obstacle.

Hey, well done on a budget.

Athreos and Plaguecrafter are good, but I don't think the rest of the aristocrat strategy is doing enough. Consider cutting most of it for more pillowfort and hatebears?

An advantage of having more flying hatebears is they can more easily get you back the monarch if an opponent gains control of it.

There's some budget manabase upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I would like to suggest Tocatli Honor Guard and Kinjalli's Sunwing.

amicdeep on Bant Stoic Control [Budget/Casual/Primer]

a couple of cards i would run as 1/2 ofs

Winds of Abandon:solid removal for combo creatures but also a board wipe late game

i would also consider one of the (creatures your opponent control etb tapped) cards, like Authority of the ConsulsKinjalli's SunwingImposing SovereignBlind ObedienceThalia, Heretic Cathar

Wall of Blossoms may be worth running over harmonize and/or explore, as it still provides card draw, but its also a solid blocker and can be flickered with soulhearder for extra card advantage.

Kinjalli's Sunwing for the mainboard and Wispmare for the sideboard. Good budget cards that fit within Kaheera, the Orphanguard's companion requirements.

Hey, you don't have 100 cards, don't need to make cuts just yet ;)

Your deck is missing Marisi as Commander. In the deck editor add the CMDR tag after Marisi text.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil *CMDR*

Doing this will make Marisi the official Commander and show the card image.


Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Eladamri's Call are some staple cards within the budget here.

Goblin Spymaster is another repeatable way to give your opponents creatures. Bedlam makes it so your opponents kill each other with unblockable creatures since they're not going to be attacking you. Mass Hysteria gives all creatures haste. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser and Agitator Ant can be repeatable goad.

The shadow ability is good with Marisi since opponents are not going to have creatures with shadow thus shadow creatures will consistently do combat damage to a player and trigger Marisi.

More flying creatures will also consistently do combat damage to a player to trigger Marisi.


Land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.
