Ranging Raptors

Creature — Dinosaur

Enrage — Whenever Ranging Raptors is dealt damage, you may search your library for a basic land card, put it into the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

I'd add 6 or so lands. There's just not near enough there. It also seems you're expecting a really long game with cards to reshuffle stuff into your library and gain life. You start at 40 health. If you're taking that much damage, the extra 5 here or there aren't saving you. And reshuffling cards from the graveyard into the library is only going to be useful if you're playing against a mill deck or you somehow draw your entire deck. Both somewhat uncommon situations.

Cards under $3 that you might consider:
Nature's Lore
Rishkar's Expertise
Rampant Growth
Kodama's Reach
Colossal Majesty
Return of the Wildspeaker
Beast Within
Nature's Claim
Thunderfoot Baloth
Rootweaver Druid
Reclamation Sage
Cathar Commando
Knight of Autumn
Qasali Pridemage
Thrashing Brontodon
Ranging Raptors
Regisaur Alpha
Shifting Ceratops
Territorial Hammerskull
Territorial Allosaurus
Topiary Stomper
Atzocan Seer
Tribal Forcemage
Naya Charm
Road of Return
Boros Charm

Cards that I would call easily expendable:
Looming Altisaur
Imperial Ceratops
Wilderness Reclamation
Verdant Haven
Gift of Paradise
Fertile Ground
Oketra's Last Mercy
Rolling Thunder
Serene Remembrance
Elixir of Immortality
Oketra's Monument
Alhammarret's Archive
Sanguine Sacrament
Slice in Twain
Enter the Unknown
Boros Signet
Gruul Signet
Selesnya Signet

lhetrick13 on Possible to List Multiple Categories …

2 months ago

Hello All,

This may be a foolish question but is there a way when making a decklist to have the same card populate multiple categories but only be counted a single time?

For example, I am new to the Commander format and want to show that Ranging Raptors is part of the General Tribal Dinosaurs category of the deck but is also a key element of the deck as it is also part of my Ramp and Enraged Categories. When I add Ranging Raptors to those categories, it is inevitably counted three times when I only want it counted once. Is there anyway around this?

NonetheWeisser - I love the dinos. The Enrage is a really fun mechanic that is seriously underrated in my opinion.

You are not wrong that lowering the mana curve would be ideal but it is hard to. Dinos are just so BIG and EXPENSIVE! The amount of creatures that drop the cost of dinos mixed with the addition of 4xUtopia Sprawl does help get things out fast. An example of an ideal hand I have played would be:

T1. Play something like Temple Garden and cast Kinjalli's Caller.

T2. Play a land that produces and cast Marauding Raptor then cast Ranging Raptors and reap the benefit of enraging Ranging Raptors.

T3. Play another land and cast Regisaur Alpha pumping Marauding Raptor and perhaps dropping Reckless Rage or Savage Stomp on Ranging Raptors to clear the way to swing for damage.

I am pretty excited for the The Lost Caverns of Ixalan set to drop in 2023 to get some more dinos. Not to many in the tribe to choose from but very fun somewhat janky deck to play!

DinoBoyBen - Really like the deck list and the concept. I know you are going for a quick as possible Ghalta, Primal Hunger drop so this may be a mute point but looking at the deck, it looks very similar to my dino deck Spared No Expense!!! in terms of trying to accelerate to drop big dinos early. It may not be as good of a fit for your deck but I have had tons of success with Ranging Raptors in terms of adding extra lands. Might be worth a look instead of running some of the dorks but would also likely require you to tweak the deck a bit to hit Enrage consistently.

Anyways, cool idea and happy brewing!

Chain Reaction may be a slightly better boardwipe than Vanquish the Horde. There are a few enrage creatures that I can't see benefiting from it, like Siegehorn Ceratops or probably Bellowing Aegisaur, but some others definitely would like Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor. Just not sure if it's worth the higher (usually) cost.

Starstorm is another option that is really interesting, too, since you can A) use it at instant speed and B) possibly leave some of your giant creatures alive while getting rid of all your opponents' stuff. And cycling is always nice.

I'm guessing you usually kill creatures with Lighting Bolt, right? Flame Slash is a heavier hitter, but only hits creatures. I'm not sure what you should replace it with, but Frenzied Raptor doesn't look like a very good card, 4/2s don't last very long and 3 mana is a bunch to invest in something that won't be sticking around. Maybe you could try Ranging Raptors? it's Green, but it's also possibly going to ramp you, and 3 toughness can handle 2 power First Strikers. It would benefit from one of those ping effects obviously, as would your Mutant/Hatchling to make extra 3/3s. If you want a nice ping effect, I saw a deck using Forerunner of the Empire and Reckless Rage to help hit their own dinosaurs to trigger abilities. Now that I check, Rage is pretty expensive, probably outside your budget, so probably disregard that.

You might try a 1 or 2 of Return of the Wildspeaker, it can either buff your dinosaurs nicely or offer a nice new hand if you've played out a big Dino.

Mirrorweave on the sideboard for boardwipes with the Peddler/Staticaster combo? Also works pretty well with Primordial Hydra to make everything else 0/0 on resolve.

Also, is there a reason you don't have Polyraptor in here? Seems like a great addition. Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor also give you options.

I doubt it would be reliable or worth it in the mainboard, but a possible sideboard addition for longer games or hexproof/indestructible enemies would be Silverclad Ferocidons.
