Hey, well done with your budget upgrade of Ghired precon, nice Purphoros.

Quartzwood Crasher is a very good budget creature with Ghired since it can create huge Dino tokens who have trample and Rhinos have trample. Pair Quartzwood and creating Rhinos with Garruk's Uprising for repeatable draw and giving all creatures you control trample.

Dragonmaster Outcast can create a 5/5 Dragon at your upkeep if you control at least six lands which is not difficult to do when playing green with land ramp. Court of Grace at your upkeep can create a 4/4 Angel if you have the monarch or a 1/1 Spirit if you don't. Having the monarch is also repeatable draw at your end step and only one player can be the monarch at one time.


Loyal Apprentice and Loyal Unicorn are budget creatures who care about when you control Ghired. You want to attack with Ghired since then you get his populate trigger, but sometimes you can't attack because it's not safe since Ghired will not survive the attack. Unicorn lets Ghired safely attack because he will not take damage in combat. Creatures you control also gain vigilance which is helpful for defense.

When you control Ghired Apprentice creates a 1/1 flying Thopter with haste at combat before you attack. Enchant a 1/1 flying Thopter with Breath of Fury for a combo of infinite attacks or infinite damage to opponents with Purphoros. As long as the Thopter does combat damage to an opponent then you sac it and attach Breath to the newly created 1/1 Thopter and repeat. Breath can also be used with Ghired by enchanting a Rhino, but you would first need a haste enabler for creature tokens such as Fires of Yavimaya. Then as long as Ghired can safely keep attacking and the Rhino can attack/do combat damage to an opponent you get infinite attacks.

Tyrite Sanctum is a nice support land since for two mana it can repeatedly make Ghired bigger with a +1/+1 counter then sac it to give Ghired indestructible to protect him in combat and from most board wipes as well as from most other opponent removal.

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.

Hey, nice version so far with a high budget. Cutting Garruk's Uprising was a mistake, the card is really good in creature decks.

Apex Altisaur and Thorn Mammoth are upgrades for Ravager Wurm and Foe-Razer Regent for repeatable fight. You don't really need Regent since you have Vigor which has a much better ability to put counters on creatures you control. Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients from the new Draconic Rage Commander precon is a target for fight and good with Vigor. He can also be a repeatable source of big tokens to abuse Greater Good, Terror of the Peaks and Garruk's Uprising.

Quartzwood Crasher is a five drop to pair with Garruk's Uprising, another repeatable source of big tokens and it's combat damage trigger goes well when you can double the power of a creature with trample. Garruk, Primal Hunter and Garruk, Unleashed can be repeatable sources of tokens for attacking and fighting. With fight it's easier to protect them to get to their ultimates.

Arcane Signet is a ramp upgrade for Rampant Growth. Harrow is an upgrade for Kodama's Reach. Karplusan Forest, Grove of the Burnwillows, Cragcrown Pathway  Flip are three more Gruul dual lands that always ETB untapped to consider adding. Cinder Glade is an upgrade for Temple of Abandon.

Hey, nice version. I've never seen Baton of Morale in a game of Commander.

Garruk's Uprising and Quartzwood Crasher is a really good Dino interaction. Uprising can do a lot for three mana and Crasher is one of the better Dinos. Because you have Glade, Vista, Stomping then Skyshroud Claim is an upgrade for land ramp spell.

Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Spectator Seating are some land upgrades to consider.

Quartzwood Crasher , Rhythm of the Wild , and Heroic Intervention are some of my recommendations for the deck. If you find a way to give more of your creatures trample, the Crasher basically generates more fatties the more you attack with your existing fatties, creating one big fatty snowball to kill your opponent with the next turn.

Rhythm of the Wild protects your fatties from getting countered while providing haste or a +1/+1 counter depending on what you want.

Heroic Intervention protects your fatties from getting wiped or targeted.

Teferi's Protection is also highly recommended if you can stomach spending that much money on a single card.

Howdy! Gishath is a fun choice for dinosaur tribal, can't go too wrong!

In terms of general advice for cuts, I'd try to evaluate the cards in terms of if it wins the game or furthers your gameplan for the deck. For example, in your current decklist, Slayer's Cleaver doesn't seem to gel with either your ramp or dino matters themes, and it strikes me as a dead draw.

Also, while cool, Morophon, the Boundless unfortunately has the color identity of all 5 colors, so you can't "legally" run it with your current commander.

All in all though, I'd recommend focusing on cards that you enjoy playing, even if it's not "optimal!"

So with that out of the way, here are some cards I'd recommend cutting hahaha XD Frilled Deathspitter Thrash of Raptors Territorial Hammerskull Ravenous Daggertooth Frenzied Raptor Bonded Horncrest Rallying Roar Huatli's Spurring Slayer's Cleaver Overgrowth (There are cheaper cmc options that will both ramp AND color fix for you), Strength of the Pack .

Those are all cards that strike me as cool, but maybe worth cutting.

As for suggestions, Ikoria brought about a LOT of cool dinosaurs! Quartzwood Crasher can put in some work! I'd play Titanoth Rex over Ancient Brontodon as you can still cycle it for less mana, both are just big dumb creatures! It would take some cuts, but I've seen some people run Kaheera, the Orphanguard as a companion for your commander, so that could help you make some cuts as well? And for flavor Zilortha, Strength Incarnate is a flavor win!

I'd also recommend Kinjalli's Sunwing . It's a "hate dinosaur" that has evasion and can stall opponents enough that you can summon your big boy dinosaur! Speaking of, Apex Altisaur and Zacama, Primal Calamity are the biggest.

The thing I'd probably recommend adding over anything is Pyrohemia . It's a board wipe in a pinch (something that is needed to get to late game) and allows for some cheeky interactions that can be frustrating to deal with. It turns Siegehorn Ceratops Snapping Sailback and Bellowing Aegisaur into creatures that keep getting bigger or pump your entire team all while clearing the board for bigger attacks. Not to mention it also is a handy source for one ping damage for enrage triggers.

Hope these suggestions help! Happy hunting!

Anax, Hardened in the Forge , Archetype of Aggression , Garruk's Packleader , Nylea's Forerunner , Quartzwood Crasher and Warmonger Hellkite might be some cards of interest. My Strength Incarnate deck might have some other useful cards, but those are the best I can think of.

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 .

Good luck with your deck.
