Quartzwood Crasher

Creature — Dinosaur Beast


Whenever one or more creatures you control with trample deals combat damage to a player, create an X/X green Dinosaur Beast creature token with trample, where X is the amount of damage those creatures dealt to that player.

Wow. This is the most non-interactive green deck I've ever seen. It doesn't really matter whether you block or not because you will never be able to overcome two Unleash Fury's on a Quartzwood Crasher.

I've pitted this deck against a bunch of my own decks and the only ones that can beat it are super hardline control decks that mainboard ridiculous amounts of counterspells and creature removal. Eventually, your deck runs out of big dumb creatures before I run out of counterspells and I can slowly chip you to death. Anyone that plays this deck loses any right to complain about control :P

Hey m4rs, I got some cheap cards that can pull some weight on your deck:

Hi eliakimras,

I was now able to do some playtests with the current set. I still changed some more cards.


Feedback to new or rarely played cards:

  • Quartzwood Crasher is insane good. Thematically, and also its easy to get like a 10 or 15/15 Token, which you can copy with ghired, after that its gonna be snowball. Surely one of the best cards in this deck. Similar with Elder Gargaroth
  • Selesnya Eulogist: Surprisingly good card, I rarely drew it beside the fact thats it a day 1 card of this deck. But targeting creatures from other graveyards (or the own) to prevent reanimate or similiar, and getting blockers is very good!

Cards I am uncertain:

Still the deck has a lot of protection, and I am not sure if it too much, but as Ghired is quite expensive, I will right now, not cut a indestructible spell.

About your utility Lands. yeah Gavony Township might be a cool manasink. But Right now I dont have it, as I put it in another deck. also i have a lot of utility lands right now. Kessig wolf run I removed, as having Trample seems no problem in my last plays.

Hey, m4rs, I'm back with some spicy tech for your deck, this time regarding the big tokens themselves:

My suggestion, whenever possible, is to run creatures over other spell types for the same effect: they synergize better with your deck, despite being more vulnerable to boardwipes. (It makes you more explosive, which is better the higher you go on power level).

Now, as always, I want to suggest some removals:

  • I love Mimic Vat in battlecruiser games, but it doesn't pull the same weight on quick games. (It hurts to write it, but my beloved Soul Foundry might also only belong to Christmasland, since, if you don't have the mana to cast AND copy the creature right away, your opponents might see the danger incoming and remove the artifact before you get any value off it.)

  • Flamerush Rider requiring an attacking creature target right away means that your options are too limited. In my opinion, Delina, Wild Mage and Rionya, Fire Dancer are better cards for the effect.

  • Tendershoot Dryad might not belong here, since Ghired cares about quality, not exactly quantity of the tokens.

  • Esika's Chariot. I understand it already comes with its tokens for crewing, but getting a token copy of TOKEN creatures AFTER combat is too narrow for my taste (and you don't have noncreature tokens). Again, Rionya and Delina are better suited for this job.

  • Sword of Hearth and Home is good protection stapled to decent blink and ramp effects, but the ramp comes too late for Ghired to care, the blink is unreliable and the protection can be better executed by Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Saryth, the Viper's Fang (trample + deathtouch is nasty), Privileged Position or Asceticism.

  • Response / Resurgence is single-use. Aurelia, the Warleader's effect is repeatable.

  • What are your experiences with Warstorm Surge? I usually leave it out of my deck if I have access to Terror of the Peaks, since 6 mana is a lot in my games and the Terror is tutorable by cards you already run.

Hey, good start, nice Atla Dino version.

When you start to make modifications consider adding more low CMC noncreature ramp? Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Farseek. The Farseek suggestion goes with some budget land upgrade suggestions: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista and Alpine Meadow. These lands have two different basic land types which can be searched for by Farseek. When land ramp can get a dual land instead of basic land(s), that helps color fixing.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the best Dinos since it can create an army of Dinos with trample by itself because it has trample and it's $2. Of course if you have more creatures who have trample then Quartzwood becomes much better esepcially with Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Garruk's Uprising gives all creatures you control trample and it also can be repeatable draw since each time a Dino ETB or Dino token that's created that's 4 or more power you draw a card. Uprising is just plain good with Dinos because most of them have 4 or more power.

With Mirror Entity more effects to give Atla a +1/+1 counter are helpful and you can get more just from budget lands: Tyrite Sanctum, Opal Palace, Forge of Heroes. Sanctum is best of these three because it can be repeatable and you don't have to cast Atla with it. When Sanctum has made Atla a God it can be saced to make Atla indestructible which is really helpful against the majority of board wipes and targeted removal. High Market is a land sac outlet. Crop Rotation can instant tutor for one of these lands, put it onto the battlefield or sac a basic land to get Command Tower.

Fanatical Devotion is more protection for Atla and it's a sac outlet for Eggs.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice first Dino deck on a low budget, but this isn't Standard. In the deck editor if you change the format of your deck to casual then all the cards will not show up red. I don't think you need white since on low budget all white is doing is making the manabase worse. Two color Gruul (red and green) will simplify your overall deck especially the manabase with mostly basic Forests and basic Mountains.

Some advice for when deck building for a 60 card deck is increase the consistently of drawing the good cards you want to draw more than others. This is done by playing more 4 ofs (4x of a card) then 1 ofs or 2 ofs (1x or 2x of card). Build a core of cards that if you got the perfect hand could be cast one after another which is called a curve. Here's an example on a low budget:

The idea with this curve is to cast Dinos quicker such as 4 CMC 5/4 Shifting Ceratops turn three or 5 CMC 6/6 Quartzwood Crasher turn four. Quartzwood is a powerful Dino who creates just as powerful Dino tokens and this effect is repeatable as long as creatures you control with trample do combat damage to your opponent. Shifting can give itself trample for one mana.

With Dinos ramp is important to cast early therefore make a couple of 1-2 CMC cards that ramp 4 ofs such as Otepec Huntmaster and Drover of the Mighty to have a better chance of having one of these in your opening hand. Huntmaster has the advantage especially with Quartzwood of giving a Dino haste while also reducing the Dino's mana cost.

Good luck with your deck.
