Ripjaw Raptor Discussion

ArfiGames on Firesale Ghalta

This is a great starting point!

I have found this, my Dinosaur Hub/Primer to work best for me. I would heavily suggest putting Marauding Raptor back in. Its better than Knight of the Stampede in most ways and allows for an early Ghlata, sometimes on Turn 3 with Raptor Hatchling for a total reduction of 10 all costing a single !

I have moved away from that line of play right now but its still on the back burner and definitely hard to deal with/recover from.

With all the pinging you've got, try 4 Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor. That has been my bread and butter ramp/draw for years now and I'm sure it would serve you well, especially with Forerunner of the Empire.

Rampaging Ferocidon Has been fantastic and goes along well with a great agressive game plan. Great to shut down various decks and good in multiples.

The list looks ok. I'm pretty sure you meant Rootbound Crag instead of Sunpetal Grove. Thrash of Raptors is ok, but Ripjaw Raptor is just so much better.

Ripjaw Raptor should really be added. It's a great draw engine in a fight deck. Also, Colossification? Also, Gigantosaurus and Ghalta, Primal Hunger seem like great additions.

you have very few card draws in your deck for my liking i suggest Ohran Viper Disciple of Bolas Elder Gargaroth Ripjaw Raptor and Treeshaker Chimera as card draw on creatures. i love your addition of Clackbridge Troll as conditional card draw on a creature that can be used as fodder for jarad too.

Hi there! I sifted through your list and chose 9 cards from amongst the higher price tags that I thought you could live without, then came up with 9 cheaper cards that seem to fit with what you have going here. I hope it's helpful

Hey, nice Scroll Rack Invention :)

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staple budget cards in Commander. At TCGPlayer you can find Sol for less than $3 and Tower for less than $1. Congregation at Dawn is a good budget creature tutor with Gishath. Cast it the same turn you want play Gishath or the turn before to tutor for and arrange the top of your library with any three Dinos to cheat onto the battlefield. Forerunner of the Empire is a Dino tutor (puts the Dino on top of your library) and a repeatable enrage enabler when a Dino you control ETB.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the better budget Dinos since it can be a repeatable source of Dino tokens since many other Dinos have trample especially with Ghalta. Crasher combines well with Garruk's Uprising which can be a repeatable draw source and can give all creatures you control trample. Ripjaw Raptor has a powerful enrage ability to draw a card when it takes damage. Rhythm of the Wild makes all creatures you cast uncounterable and it gives nontoken creatures when they ETB the option of haste or make it bigger with a +1/+1 counter.

With Orcish Lumberjack sacing a Forest you control can make four mana since you can tap the Forest for mana before you sac it which can be a quick way to ramp into Gishath or other Dinos. Farseek is two drop land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Stomping Ground, Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. At TCGPlayer can get Vista and Glade for less than $2 each.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Skull Prophet would diversify your mana base slightly more than Llanowar Dead. It would help you play a Ripjaw Raptor if you only had one green land.

Sporeweb Weaver is interesting, too. It works well with Rite of Passage. Even without it, you can make a single chump blocker every turn. Reach is a nice bonus.
