Marauding Raptor

Creature — Dinosaur

Creature spells you cast cost less to cast.

Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, Marauding Raptor eals 2 damage to it. If a Dinosaur is dealt damage this way, Marauding Raptor gets +2/+0 until end of turn.

Wirmy - I had to check out your dino deck after you liked mine. I see a lot of similarities between this deck and mine with the use of Otepec Huntmaster and Marauding Raptor to lower the mana curve of the bigger dinos. The 8 cards I am surprised to see are Windswept Heath and Embercleave. I am guess you do not own a copy of Wooded Foothills or you would be running four copies of that instead of Windswept Heath. For Embercleave, do not get me wrong, I love this card but you usually see if in decks where you can capitalize on its ability to come in cheap by attacking with lots of smaller creatures constantly such as goblins who will always have the numbers and could use the power increase.

Personally, I dropped Otepec Huntmaster from my deck as its toughness of 2 makes it so there is not much synergy with Marauding Raptor since the raptor kills the huntmaster if it comes out first. The ability to grant Haste is pretty sweet but to many games where I had to sit on casting him due to Marauding Raptor. Kinjalli's Caller fit in this role better for me but I am running .

Happy Brewing!

NonetheWeisser - I love the dinos. The Enrage is a really fun mechanic that is seriously underrated in my opinion.

You are not wrong that lowering the mana curve would be ideal but it is hard to. Dinos are just so BIG and EXPENSIVE! The amount of creatures that drop the cost of dinos mixed with the addition of 4xUtopia Sprawl does help get things out fast. An example of an ideal hand I have played would be:

T1. Play something like Temple Garden and cast Kinjalli's Caller.

T2. Play a land that produces and cast Marauding Raptor then cast Ranging Raptors and reap the benefit of enraging Ranging Raptors.

T3. Play another land and cast Regisaur Alpha pumping Marauding Raptor and perhaps dropping Reckless Rage or Savage Stomp on Ranging Raptors to clear the way to swing for damage.

I am pretty excited for the The Lost Caverns of Ixalan set to drop in 2023 to get some more dinos. Not to many in the tribe to choose from but very fun somewhat janky deck to play!

There are several cards that seem like odd inclusions are Urabrask, Heretic Praetor, Rukh Egg, Roc Egg, Marauding Raptor. Urabrask because you don't want to be playing cards, the plan is to cheat them right? If you exile a creature card then hopefully you have the mana to play, eliminate the risk. You could put in the other urabrask, Urabrask the Hidden. The eggs cards do look like a good idea, especially since you also get a token from them, but Atla makes eggs already and maskwood nexus would help make all creatures eggs anyways. There are better options to include than eggs that you could get Atla. For Marauding Raptor, you play a good amount of dinos, but does it get big enough to warrant a slot? If you were able to get all your dinos out (not thinking of maxwood nexus) it would be a 22/3. That's big, but not a slot in the deck big. I would be interested in hearing your reasoning for it's inclusion. Other creatures you could replace it with is Godsire, Hornet Queen, Worldspine Wurm. Let me know what your thoughts are!

thefiresoflurve oof that's disappointing, thanks for pointing that out! I might have to swap Marauding Raptor for Impact Tremors. granted all of the other dinos with enrage benefit from Marauding Raptor

Impact Tremors allows you to repeatedly ping Polyraptor (and clones) filling your board. Marauding Raptor does the same but on a dino body.

I like Concordant Crossroads and Mass Hysteria to sneak in after I establish board state.

Possibly Savage Beating or World at War to finish a game out.

Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor goes infinite and both parts of the combo are good in your deck! ^u^

Marauding Raptor has good synergy with Atla, plus it fits your Dinosaur sub theme. AEther Flash does the same thing essentially but at a higher cost, and Pyroclasm does it on a spell.
