How about Marauding Raptor? I've had a lot of fun with that recently.

Saccox, it's more of a Flameshadow Conjuring deck + giants, but I get your idea. Mana ramp is the most important part of getting this deck to work and it doesn't help that red is such a weird 'ramp' color. I might drop Crystalline Giant,Marauding Raptor, or Stinkdrinker Daredevil if I get better alternatives for ramp. Maybe in Kaldheim?

I'm also mostly limiting my search to find mana sources built on creatures, since Flameshadow Conjuring. I may prefer a great tribal mana rock if it were cmc 2, since it would get my 3rd turn up to my key cards of cmc 4.

This is a great starting point!

I have found this, my Dinosaur Hub/Primer to work best for me. I would heavily suggest putting Marauding Raptor back in. Its better than Knight of the Stampede in most ways and allows for an early Ghlata, sometimes on Turn 3 with Raptor Hatchling for a total reduction of 10 all costing a single !

I have moved away from that line of play right now but its still on the back burner and definitely hard to deal with/recover from.

With all the pinging you've got, try 4 Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor. That has been my bread and butter ramp/draw for years now and I'm sure it would serve you well, especially with Forerunner of the Empire.

Rampaging Ferocidon Has been fantastic and goes along well with a great agressive game plan. Great to shut down various decks and good in multiples.

I don’t see Marauding Raptor anywhere. Am I missing something?

[email protected]_only: Thank you for the suggestions! Definitely some neat stuff there. I had already been thinking about a few of them, like Corrupted Grafstone, but not having a reliable way to make sure it'll generate mana kept me from adding it. Some of the others area lready in my maybeboard or were just not very budget friendly. But there are some I'm definitely gonna throw in the maybeboard for when I can afford them! And I'll be sure to post updates :)

Peoyogon: Thank you!! The Orrery seems a bit too risky for me, I think, especially if I end up playing all my lands and then it's just the opponents getting the benefit. Kyren Toy sure is a weird card! Being able to produce additional mana is definitely something I'd want out of a 3-drop mana rock. Earthquake is pretty great, but I'm struggling to find room for more interaction, plus it kills all my mana dorks. I guess that's not as much of a problem if I'm using it late game, but it's still some thing to keep in mind.

Honestly, the mana dorks do come with some annoying restrictions haha. Like not using Earthquake effects and not being able to run Marauding Raptor. I think I can see myself replacing them with 2-cost rocks in the future once I can afford to get all the pricier ones.

Hey, nice first budget version of Gishath. Good job on the win.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Several of these cards are in Commander Legends, the new Magic set just released. The prices of these cards will be decreasing.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

TriusMalarky on Any advice for a dino …

Ranging Raptors and Forerunner of the Empire are a great combo. You'll be able to get more ramp every single time you play a dino.

Also, Marauding Raptor is GREAT, especially with Ranging Raptors.

Pyrohemia + Ranging Raptors is an ABSURD ramp engine.

With Ranging Raptors, you can easily be ramping 1-2 lands every turn for incredibly small investments. Probably the best dinosaur engine out there.

Also, the best win con for Dinos is Polyraptor. with Pyrohemia or Forerunner it goes infinite. Just provide an outlet like Impact Tremors or Goblin Bombardment and you'll win.
