Some thoughts:

  • i’m surprised Ripjaw Raptor isn’t in the deck, as it’s one of the best dinos out there, especially backed-up by cards that can let it fight. Similarly, Ranging Raptors is better than most of the other dinos you’re currently running.

  • you should defo be running the full playset of Savage Stomp.

  • your mana curve is waaay too high. Look to run some lower-cmc cards.

  • you’re currently running what i would consider to be a bunch of “trash dinos”. I’d suggest removing the following: Snapping Sailback, Thrash of Raptors, Raging Swordtooth, Cherished Hatchling, Crested Herdcaller. I’d also consider Raging Regisaur pretty “meh”.

  • other cards to consider adding are Drover of the Mighty and Rile, though you’ll get your biggest upgrade by adding a third colour to the deck (white) - there are loads of strong dino effects in that third colour.

Hey Man! Cool deck idea, perhaps I can help a bit.

First off, both Pyrohemia and Scourge of Kher Ridges as well as any way to recur them (in case they are destroyed or the board is wiped) are probably best here.

Obviously Firespout , Pyroclasm , Crush the Weak , Fiery Confluence and Anger of the Gods are good options for you to ping or clear boards. Some of the odd ones are Hail Storm and Magma Vein . Chaos Maw and Cinder Giant are cool options here as well.

Fights are great if you pick on smaller creatures, Gruul Ragebeast and Magus of the Arena come to mind here. As far as other creatures go, Raging Swordtooth is cool too.

Devastate is pricey but lets you build a board first. I'm not sure if Sporeweb Weaver is on your radar or not, but I hope it is now!

AkaAkuma I've been trying to get my hands on a Wilderness Reclamation , as it falls within the budget a bit better than other options.

TheoryCrafter I put Raging Swordtooth in and out of the deck around times, but it falls flat usually overall. I'll probably order a Marauding Raptor soon enough as it doesn't kill too many of my creatures and has good synergy. Rite of Passage is a maybe at this point.

Have you considered Marauding Raptor or Raging Swordtooth ? With Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor already in your deck, the damage getting dished out will trigger their enrage abilities. Playing Polyraptor with Marauding Raptor already on the battlefield will force a mandatory draw if you're gonna lose no matter what else you do. Also, you could also add Rite of Passage .

Good deck! I'd swap in Savage Stomp for Prey Upon. Raging Swordtooth is also good for triggering enrage.

Hi CardTyrant

Awesome list, i have taken some notes for when i start retooling my own gishath deck.

But there are some inclusions I myself have experienced to be underwhelming and was wondering what you thought about them.

  • Bellowing Aegisaur: Does he work as occasional +1/+1 counter placements or do you have multiple activations when you use him. I myself find the occasional trigger to be underwhelming, and not doing much for 6 mana. And when i can use something like Pyrohemia he does not protect himself.

  • Burning Sun's Avatar: Have been very disappointed with this one, tough to cast due to its cmc and triple red. Bolting a creature and a player seems very limited for 6 mana, and even when its cheated into play it seems underwhelming for a card slot when something like Apex Altisaur could remove multiple threats. And a 6/6 without trample is underwhelming as well in my opinion :/.

  • Deathgorge Scavenger: How often do you meet graveyard decks, because without that interaction it seems very limited in its use.

  • Raging Regisaur: I have been on the fence with this, it is a very nice trigger on a dinosaur body. But the amount of enrage targets are limited and - at least in my meta, a 4/4 will rarely be able to attack anyone without dying to one of their larger blockers. Killing an X/1 is nice, but the difficulty of having it attack without dying is a bit tough.

  • Raging Swordtooth: Same case as above, but i like this less. It triggers only once, which means it needs a lot of setup for getting a lot of enrage triggers. An army of 1/1 seems uncommon, most token decks will have something to buff them. A possible swap could be Staff of Nin it gives card draw and a nice way to trigger enrage, although at a higher cmc and no way of cheating it into play.

  • Siegehorn Ceratops: How has this performed for you? I find it very hard to trigger it the first time with only 1 damage. And even if it gets buffed it is just a big beater without trample. I really like the card and want to include it, but its hard to justify.

  • Territorial Allosaurus: Is a 5/5 for 4 with a possible fight ability really worth it, feels there are better options available.

  • Trapjaw Tyrant: Have shown to be very risky. Some setup is required to trigger the enrage, and even if the problems are removed, they will come right back when the board is cleared. And then one have to take care of those problems again with an empty board.

And what do you think about some of these cards?
