Quartzwood Crasher Discussion

Hey, well done on a budget.
Command Tower , Exotic Orchard and Path of Ancestry are staple budget rainbow lands in Commander. Currently Farseek and Three Visits can't search for a white dual land only Cinder Glade . The new Snow dual lands Alpine Meadow and Arctic Treeline are two different land types one being Plains.
Court of Bounty is a good card with Dinos since it can potentially cheat them from your hand onto the battlefield or it lets you put a land. The monarch can be repeatable draw and Dinos can be good blockers to keep the monarch. Berserkers' Onslaught can give Gishath double strike and if he does combat damage to a player then you trigger his ability twice. Double strike makes all other Dinos more powerful and has bonkers interaction with Quartzwood Crasher .
Some changes to consider:
- Command Tower --> 1x Forest
- Exotic Orchard --> 1x Mountain
- Path of Ancestry --> 1x Plains
- Alpine Meadow --> Wind-Scarred Crag
- Arctic Treeline --> Graypelt Refuge
- Court of Bounty --> Colossal Majesty
- Berserkers' Onslaught --> Thundering Spineback
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start on a low budget.
Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Command Tower are three staples cards for Commander. Dinos and Gishath can benefit from ramp since Gishath is 8 mana and the better Dinos are also high CMC. Ramp can come from mana rocks such as Sol Ring, but you're playing green thus you also have access to lots of other ramp options (land ramp spells, mana dorks, land auras). Land ramp spells can search for and put a dual land or basic land onto the battlefield. Mana dorks are creatures who can tap for mana and land auras are enchantments that can enchant a land to tap that land for more mana then you can normally make.
- Sol Ring
- Arcane Signet
- Drover of the Mighty
- Faeburrow Elder
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Farseek : can search for a dual land such as Cinder Glade or Alpine Meadow
- Fertile Ground
Some budget Dinos to consider adding:
- Quartzwood Crasher : can create Dino tokens with trample.
- Etali, Primal Storm : attack ability gives you a lot of value in multiplayer Commander.
- Regisaur Alpha
- Annoyed Altisaur
- Realmwalker : Changelings are Dinos.
- Silverclad Ferocidons
Creature tutors, repeatable draw sources and other ways to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield are all helpful effects to have.
If you would like I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good budget version of Gishath. Nice Regal Behemoth :)
Mentioned above, double strike with Gishath gives you two triggers, but Gishath is nine mana and you want to take advantage of it's haste. You want to get the double strike effect the turn you play Gishath, but if you have to also cast a card to give double strike you need even more than nine mana. Duelist's Heritage can give Gishath double strike for no mana and turns before Gishath it can give other Dinos double strike.
You have a few repeatable draw effects, but consider Court of Bounty ? It can be repeatable draw as well as land ramp or cheat a Dino onto the battlefield. Bounty helps Regal as another way for you to become the monarch.
Consider budget creature tutors Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and Fierce Empath ? Empath can get Regal or any other 6 CMC or higher Dino. Tracker can get Quartzwood Crasher or any other Dino who has trample. Either of these tutors can get Regal and that's helpful because it's the best Dino for ramp into Gishath. Tracker also puts the creature you tutor for on top of your library thus if you have the mana you could tutor for a Dino before you attack with Gishath.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Rally the Ranks
- Blackblade Reforged
- Vanquisher's Banner
- Snapping Sailback
- Siegehorn Ceratops
- Commander's Sphere
A small amount of additional p/t for Dinos from anthems is not worth taking up card spots since Dinos are already big. Getting draw from casting a Dino is not as good as draw from a Dino ETB since most Dinos are high CMC and you don't cast Dinos you cheat onto the battlefield with Gishath.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Atla. Your deck name gave me a laugh :)
Fanatical Devotion is another no mana cost sac outlet that can sac an Egg at instant speed. Fanatical can save Atla from most board wipes or removal spells. High Market is a land that's a sac outlet and Crop Rotation can tutor for it.
Open the Armory can tutor for Greaves of Staff, two important equipment to have more access too. Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can tutor for a creature with trample and put it on top of your library to then cheat it onto the battlefield with an Egg.
Quartzwood Crasher and Giant Adephage are two budget big creature upgrades. Both of them have trample, can create their own armies of trampling creatures, create a token to copy or populate and have excellent interaction. Angel of Sanctions is nonpermanent removal on a flying creature and if you get to embalm then the Angel token is very good to copy or populate.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Blossoming Sands
- Graypelt Refuge
- Kazandu Refuge
- Rugged Highlands
- Desolation Twin
- Maelstrom Colossus
- Enlisted Wurm
- Scute Mob
- Ageless Entity
- Bull Cerodon
- Woolly Thoctar
- Colossal Majesty
Desolation, Maelstrom and Enlisted abilities only trigger if you cast them not when you cheat them onto the battlefield. Without their triggers they're very lackluster.
Good luck with your deck.

Soul of the Harvest is fantastic for Xenagos. It smooths out draws and tramples.
Quartzwood Crasher does nasty stuff, making bigger and bigger tokens.
You've got a couple of X spells, so I'll suggest running Reap the Past. Put enough into the X and you'll recover nicely from a boardwipe.
Hunter's Insight is fantastic draw and got reprinted recently.

Hey, consider Eldrazi Displacer with Ghired? Repeatable blink at instant speed, more Rhino tokens, protects Ghired in combat after he attacks, can tap down an opponent's blocker or remove an attacker, can protect Ghired from targeted removal, blink another creature who has an ETB trigger, etc. You will have to build the manabase around and use mana rocks for colorless mana sources for Displacer, but in my opinion it's worth it because you're not adding bad cards just for Displacer. Crop Rotation is helpful to tutor for a land that can make colorless.
- Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, 3 Talismans
- 3 Pain lands, 3 Filter lands
- Gavony Township, Rogue's Passage, Kessig Wolf Run
- Gargoyle Castle, Naya Panorama
Zealous Conscripts combos with Kiki to attack with infinite Conscript tokens. Quartzwood Crasher and Court of Grace are excellent repeatable token sources. Open the Armory, Idyllic Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Chord of Calling are tutors with prices that are within the budget.
Nature's Lore and Three Visits are two drop land ramp for a Forest dual land. Swords to Plowshares, Beast Within, Heliod's Intervention are helpful instant removal spells. Austere Command is a versatile board wipe.
Eternal Witness is good card recursion especially with Displacer. Feldon of the Third Path can create a token of any creature in your graveyard to then populate that token with Ghired. If you control Ghired Akroma's Will can wreck your opponents with your token army.
If interested I offer more advice in another comment including suggestions of cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.
