Monomanamaniac on Dinosaur Tribal

Hey, saw your post and figured I'd give you my ¢2. Great deck overall and I get budget and not updating, I have many decks that haven't changed in years.

So "budget" suggestions are: Etali, Primal Storm, Marauding Raptor, Garruk's Uprising, Kodama's Reach looks like a well put together deck but a few extra tools are always fun.

Not so budget suggestions are: Runic Armasaur, Wayward Swordtooth, Rhythm of the Wild honestly could think of a few more and suggest lands, but I find that non-budget suggestions aren't as helpful. Let me know if you want a bigger list of suggestions though

As for cards to think about cutting, without calling out anything in particular I'd suggest you look at the top of your curve and try to make your 6+ value cards the most impactful cards in your deck. Anyways it's a fun looking deck

Cisab on Vrondiss' mean Dragons

Yeah, there are quite some ways to create infinite combos with indestructible on Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients, could throw out the Strionic Resonator for the Blazing Sunsteel if you want more infinite combos.

Theres also an infinite combo with Polyraptor + Marauding Raptor/AEther Flash and Warstorm Surge/Terror of the Peaks etc and since dinos are nearly dragons... Anyways, if you dont have or lose the pinger there you just have an unstoppable infinite combo which will result in a draw and I did not really like that idea.

Drover of the Mighty and Sudden Spinnerets work. Drover's ability is a static effect, so if you control a Dinosaur it will enter as a 3/3 and be a 3/3 the entire time (it wouldn't actually trigger things like Mentor of the Meek because it doesn't enter as a 1/1). Sudden Spinnerets can be used in response to Marauding Raptor's trigger as you said, and will keep the creature alive.

Basri's Solidarity won't because it's a sorcery, so you can't cast it until after Marauding Raptor's ability resolves.

Hello, i've got some problems in understanding Marauding Raptors second ability, especially its interactions with other abilities or spells. To simplify it: Is it possible to prevent an entering creature with toughness 2 or less to be killed by Marauding Raptor?

For example, does Drover of the Mightys first ability give it the additional stats before it gets killed by the dino?

Or can i cast something like Sudden Spinnerets or put a counter with Basri's Solidarity on a creature to save it?

RSVP at your own risk - Thank you very much :)

Hey, you're welcome, nice changes.

Vigor prevents enrage from happening since it prevents damage dealt to Vron. It's a replacement effect which replaces the damage that is dealt with +1/+1 counters since damage isn't dealt enrage doesn't trigger. Rite of Passage works how you want with Vron because it doesn't prevent damage, but also puts a +1/+1 counter when damage is dealt.

Goblin Bombardment could replace many different cards simply because it's a win condition with Vron that's only two mana. Bombardment is also another card to infinite combo with Polyraptor and it can prevent ending the game in a draw with Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor. Anara, Wolvid Familiar could replace Cacophodon. Is Cacophodon part of a combo that I'm not seeing? Crop Rotation could replace Steel Wall.

Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker are in the precon and they can draw a lot of cards because Vron starts at 5 power. Return being an instant can be cast not on your turn to fill your hand of cards to choose from to cast on your next turn. These spells are excellent with Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient and Old Gnawbone who can make a ton of mana to cast all the cards you draw.

Expertise and Return are actually better spells here than Kindred Summons because with Vron no matter what you're drawing at least 5 cards. Summons requires that you control many Dragons to get the same amount of value. One advantage of Summons is instant speed to potentially reveal both Gnawbone + Charger, cheating them onto the battlefield, but without a way to arrange these Dragons to the top of your library that will be rare.

Sword of Hours is in the precon and it does a lot with Vron since it's a source of repeatable die roll and a way to make Vron bigger with +1/+1 counters. Some budget lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands: Naya Panorama, Jund Panorama, Bonders' Enclave, Rogue's Passage.

If you're looking for Bant, that would exclude the Marauding Raptor.

Stuffy Doll, choose yourself, attach Pariah or Pariah's Shield.

BrassLord on Mandatory Loop combos (for game …

Hello! I'm trying to brew a bant deck that either contains infinite mandatory loops for the game to end in a draw, or combos that end in everyone losing the game at the same time! Any color combos are welcome! So far I've come across 3 Oblivion Rings (with nothing else to target), Ajani's Chosen + Enchanted Evening, Polyraptor and Marauding Raptor, and Life and Limb + Sporemound. First time posting! All suggestions welcome!

Hey, there's not much to say yet as this is just a list of cards you want to play, nice Swordtooth. Most of what you have so far on the low budget is good, but Decree of Savagery is not playable and Sun-Crested Pterodon, Elfhame Palace, Stone Quarry are really lackluster.

Do you own Gishath? I don't see him here, but I do see Atla. If you don't own Gishath then he's really not worth getting for $20 if you're on such a low budget. Atla is a fine Commander for Dinos and you have her. For $20 you could get many budget cards that are good with Atla rather than just Gishath.

Atla and Gishath will play very differently. Gishath is more straight forward, ramp and Dinos. Atla is more complex since you want ramp, sac outlets for Eggs and Dinos. Marauding Raptor is a combo Dino with Atla to kill an Egg right when it ETB. It also triggers enrage when a Dino ETB.


Some budget Dinos to consider adding:

Some budget cards that have good interactions with Atla and/or Dinos or are ramp:

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.
