Runic Armasaur

Creature — Dinosaur

Whenever an opponent activates an ability of a creature or land that isn't a mana ability, you may draw a card.

Hi, thefiresoflurve

True that Growing Ranks seems too slow, I removed it earlier but forgot to save the edit XD

I'm not 100% on board with Runic Armasaur because I have mostly only creatures I would be "happy" to pull almost anytime. But Wolverine Riders seems certainly interesting, because while it doesn't make eggs, I have some mechanisms to turn everything into eggs, so it wouldn't be a bad pull. Plus, I have some cards that generate some value with creature sac. On a different note: an all the deck versions that I have tested and in around 15 games, card draw only served me if I was royally screwed with my commander, if I had egg game going on I almost never played things from hand, so not super worried about card draw for now.

Idol of Oblivion and Pyrohemia seem like fire suggestions, apart from the fact that I wanted to cut artifacts and enchantments to add more removal.

Thanks!

Looks a little bit light on sac outlets:

Pyrohemia would be great as a "sac outlet" to sweep your board clear of eggs, and also do some bonus control against your opponents. It also happens to synergize really well with the Enrage mechanic (which you aren't running a lot of, but it's a bonus still).

Idol of Oblivion was made for Atla Palani, excellent draw card here.

Having played Trostani Populate as an edh deck before, in my opinion Growing Ranks is just too slow to be worth it. Depending on your table, Runic Armasaur or Shapers' Sanctuary might be good cards to up your draw power some more. Wolverine Riders is also another possibility if you want more token generation in that slot (note: each upkeep), but it can't make eggs.

Heres a list of things that went through my mind looking at the deck. They are not recommended or necessary but should bee seen as different view on your deck. Who knows maybe you'll find something interesting.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Etali, Primal Storm and Ghalta, Primal Hunger feel very odd. Those cards only "win more" and dont contribute to the deck the way constructed is playing out. If u can stick Gishath, Sun's Avatar or Carnage Tyrant the game should be over in 2-3 turns anyways. Your damage trigger will best case reduce it to 2 turns consistently. Ghalta, Primal Hunter needs a lot of power already on the board which indicates you're winning already, making it a bit redundant. And Etali, Primal Storm is fun to play with but considering cards commonly played in pioneer wont do much in a duel.

Switch Shifting Ceratops with Zetalpa, Primal Dawn because Zetalpa is the stronger game 1 threat

I would also Remove Otepec Huntmaster and add some protection or land based ramp

if you only use half the amounts of Regisaur Alpha you could include Relentless Raptor if you want more early game

It also would'nt Hurt to include some early Sweepers like Crush the Weak or Cinderclasm against aggro decks

Some very good dinosaurs to consider:

Deathgorge Scavenger;Rampaging Ferocidon;Ripjaw Raptor;Runic Armasaur

Hey, thanks for the reply! In the range of 6-7 we want to start doing unfair things; not quite the territory of combo, but you are right, we should be threatening a win by turns 6-8. It seems like you are running an aggressive on-the-board win, which means we need to target your creatures, and see where we can squeeze in more power. As a note, I'd rate your current deck construction at a 4-5 due to the fact that there could be a lot more optimization, and you seem to be missing ways to threaten a win.

Your best win condition seems to be playing Craterhoof Behemoth into a board of other creatures. Something we want to address if you want to improve the power of the deck is how do we get our win condition out of our deck. We can do this by drawing cards, tutoring from the deck, etc. A deck that is a 7 will usually have one or two ways to directly tutor their win condition, as well as powerful card draw engines that let the deck draw 2 to 3 extra cards a turn.

Cards to Add:

Something to sit on, and maybe test out: are there cards that are worth playing even though they are non-creature spells? My answer is yes! Here are a few I'd say are worth playing in your deck:

Sorry if that was a lot! I can recommend cards to take out of the deck if you want, but here is a list of my recommendations. Let me know if you want to further the conversation or have any questions

Mono green deck that’s creature focused…

Allosaurus Shepherd

Destiny Spinner

Augur of Autumn

Runic Armasaur

This is mono-green…drop the mana rocks for better mana dorks and land auras to bolster that creature count and maintain a low mana curve. This opens up the avenue to use Collector Ouphe and Null Rod to cripple most players ramp and board capabilities. Rocks with static effects like Emerald Medallion should stay as they’ll not be effected.

Sylvan Library and The Great Henge are drawing staples.

Your land count is extremely low and your using token generators that rely on land fall. Get rid of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and use Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. This will add better synergy and take up the lack of lands to create more triggers on landfall.

Tamiyo's Safekeeping works well here as a backup to Heroic Intervention.

Druid of Purification and Scavenging Ooze are also great additions for utility.

Loyal Apprentice is a stud here. Spirit Mantle/Spirit en-Dal are great ways to get any creature into the redzone. Aura Shards is amazing and at $5-6 it's the most reasonable price you'll find it for.

I also suggest more card draw options like Rites of Flourishing, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Jared Carthalion, True Heir, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Runic Armasaur, Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner, and Welcoming Vampire... they're all good budget options. Toski, Bearer of Secrets and Ohran Frostfang are at the top end of your budget but are worth their weight in gold here.

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas. It's definitely not budget overall but it has plenty of stuff under 10 bucks. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Marisi the Pimp - (Combat) Trickin' Hoes

Thanks for looking, Monomanamaniac. I like your budget suggestions, and a few of your not-so-budget suggestions. Etali is slated to go into the deck...I just need to buy or find another copy in my collection. I'd like to add Wayward Swordtooth, but that may take some time. Runic Armasaur isn't that far out of budget, though, and I think I will add it, too.

I'd considered Rhythm of the Wild as an upgrade to Fires of Yavimaya, which I had in the deck, but I removed it, mainly because if the deck is running right, creatures are entering the battlefield with Gishath's ability, and haste doesn't do much good then. Next time I go upgrading, I'm getting those cards!

Hey, saw your post and figured I'd give you my ¢2. Great deck overall and I get budget and not updating, I have many decks that haven't changed in years.

So "budget" suggestions are: Etali, Primal Storm, Marauding Raptor, Garruk's Uprising, Kodama's Reach looks like a well put together deck but a few extra tools are always fun.

Not so budget suggestions are: Runic Armasaur, Wayward Swordtooth, Rhythm of the Wild honestly could think of a few more and suggest lands, but I find that non-budget suggestions aren't as helpful. Let me know if you want a bigger list of suggestions though

As for cards to think about cutting, without calling out anything in particular I'd suggest you look at the top of your curve and try to make your 6+ value cards the most impactful cards in your deck. Anyways it's a fun looking deck
