Samut, Voice of Dissent Discussion
2 months ago
As for potential alternate commanders, here are what I would recommend. My goal here isn't to necessarily power up your deck, but that would likely happen if you choose someone other than Brion. The addition of other colors can add versatility as well as variety--potentially leading to more fun. I feel like being able to play any giant (or at least more giants) would make for a truer giant-tribal experience and allow the deck to grow better as new sets and new giants come out. Also, when you're on a budget the addition to other colors will allow you to play better creatures and better utility without having to scrape the bottom of the barrel in Boros colors.
Going for all five colors would allow you to play any giant across Magic's rich history and allow any utility card you could possibly want. This would be the best choice as you continue to play, as any upgrades or new giants could fit in the deck. Don't be intimidated by the mana base; five-color is easy on a budget.
Morophon, the Boundless - It's a giant! Technically. The anthem is cute and the mana discount is enormous. One of the best options for Giant Tribal. I have one for trade!! Highly highly highly recommended
Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - Truly obscene power. He ramps when you cast him (making his commander tax kind of one mana instead of two!) and his ability to play three cards off the top of the deck is nothing short of perfect for a mana-expensive deck like Giant Tribal. Cannot recommend enough.
Kenrith, the Returned King - Another incredibly strong choice. He can give you trample and haste--both things big slow giants want. He can grow your team, he can draw cards, and he can bring back the expensive giants from the graveyard. The lifegain can be good too! A top-tier choice.
The addition of alone would both power up the deck and make it run smoother without having to invest in expensive cards. There are a bunch of great Giants in green on a budget and it seems that WotC is making more and more Green giants in modern times, compared to the old days, making it a safe choice when it comes to future additions.
Mayael the Anima - A fantastic and strong choice. Naya colors and a strong mana-sink for when your hand is empty. Having expensive giants is perfect for her ability! A top-notch choice. Highly recommended. Mayael's Aria is a fun card!
Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Hatch giants out of eggs! A really great way to cheat on mana costs. A pretty good choice and a funny one. I have one for trade.
Samut, Voice of Dissent - Granting haste to your team and being able to surprise-untap a giant to block an attack is pretty good utility. A good--but not excellent--choice.
Marisi, Breaker of the Coil - A decent choice. Goading opponents' creatures would allow your own giants to swing in with impunity. I have one for trade.
Gahiji, Honored One - An all-right choice. The ability powers up our team and incentivizes your opponents to attack each other. It's a giant beast, for what it's worth.
I'm not sure why one would want to run four colors when one could easily run all five, but there are two very interesting choices for generals in the Blue-less combination. Personally I find the Blue giants better than the Black giants though. None of the options for Black-less are any good for Giant Tribal.
Saskia the Unyielding - Her ability is no joke when it comes to smashing face. A good choice, but we can probably do better.
Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - Now THIS is an interesting commander combo. Make a sort of loose lifegain theme around Giant Tribal. If you want to have a truly unique take on Giant Tribal that nobody has ever seen, this may be the way. I have Ikra Shidiqi for trade, but not Bruse.
I would highly recommend running Morophon, the Boundless or Mayael the Anima as your general, with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Kenrith, the Returned King being equally as good--if not better (mechanically). You'll get to play more giants, better giants, and ramp into them easier--all while still staying on a budget. Also, these commanders actually facilitate giant tribal and a concept.

Potential Non-Boros Commanders: Show
If you did want to use a different commander for more colors, here are the ones I would recommend:
I love the idea of being able to include any Giant that you want. Budget five-color mana bases are easy.
Morophon, the Boundless - probably the best pick? It gives a substantial discount and is technically a Giant itself. The anthem tacked on is just gravy. I have one for trade!
Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - a bit of ramp, plus his ability is just fucking nuts. Absolutely outrageous. Spewing out giants! An outstanding commander through-and-through.
Kenrith, the Returned King - Grants haste, can bring back dead giants, can grow your army, draws cards. He does everything except be a giant himself. Another outstanding general.
Jodah, Archmage Eternal - Most Jodah decks focus on extremely expensive creatures and spells, so his ability might not be too hot for Giant Tribal. He would work though. Outclassed for sure.
Jegantha, the Wellspring - A bit of ramp in the command zone. Outclassed by the rest, but it IS a giant elk...
Naya colors get you Green, which will add some very good giants and significantly improve your options for ramp, utility, and card-draw. By like, a ton.
Samut, Voice of Dissent - grants Haste, which is dope. The untapping ability can surprise opponents maybe. Not a giant though.
Gahiji, Honored One - Looks like a giant beast, for what it's worth. Boosts your attacks and may even take some heat off of you. A mediocre choice, but not awful.
Marisi, Breaker of the Coil - some good general value. Would make attacking easier due to taking away blockers. Nothing outstanding though.
Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Hatch giants out of eggs!
Other color combinations:
Saskia the Unyielding - Not sure why you'd want to run four colors when you could do all five, but her ability is no joke. Personally I prefer the Blue giants to the Black ones, but Black has some of the best utility and card-draw in the game.
Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - want to run most of the giants and have M A X I M U M life-gain? This pair would make for a profoundly distinct Giant Tribal. A truly unique take. Might be lots of fun! You could even try to squeeze in Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance for a laugh; certainly not necessary though.
Ruhan of the Fomori - No Green, but he's a giant himself and Blue utility is as good as any. A decent choice, but if you're stepping out of Boros you may as well run Green cards.
The stand-outs to me are Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - Morophon, the Boundless - Kenrith, the Returned King - Mayael the Anima - Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper. These are all extremely strong choices.
Here's some of the fantastic Utility cards that you would gain by stepping into other colors (I'll try to list budget cards):
Rhythm of the Wild - Garruk's Uprising! - Elemental Bond - Colossal Majesty - Beast Within - Temur Ascendancy - Nylea, Keen-Eyed - Nylea, God of the Hunt - Primal Rage - Brawn - Heroic Intervention - Golgari Charm - Wrap in Vigor - Return of the Wildspeaker - Soul's Majesty - Rishkar's Expertise - Sylvan Reclamation - Decimate - Genesis Ultimatum - Eerie Ultimatum - Ruinous Ultimatum - Despark - Descendants' Path - Clever Impersonator - Cyclonic Rift - Call to the Kindred - Swan Song - Greed - Casualties of War
Then there is Green's superior mana ramp. Cultivate - Kodama's Reach - Migration Path - Vastwood Surge - Ranger's Path - Nature's Lore - Rampant Growth - Deathsprout -Traverse the Outlands - Boundless Realms... the list goes on.
As you can see, there's a lot there that Red and White just can't even touch. Green is basically the best color in EDH, especially for big-creature decks. Very much worth considering, even if you're trying to keep the deck casual.

First of all you want some untappers like Seedborn Muse or Samut, Voice of Dissent to make more than 1 token each turn. Then some sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment and Ashnod's Altar to sacrifice you tokens whenever you want to get your dinos on the field and do dmg or get mana. If you add an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and 3 more cards you get the said infinite combos.
Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.
I hope this helps

ZendikariWol - mass haste is the far more important ability on Samut, Voice of Dissent, and quite a few of the important cards in this deck are red (notably Purphoros, God of the Forge). I also think Samut is just a bit more interesting than Estrid. Naya enchantress is at least little more unusual than Bant, and Estrid is great but very much built for purpose.

Hey, interesting version of Atla, that's a lot of creatures.
Consider cutting a few of the least good creatures for more early game ramp?
- Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Wild Growth could replace Gruul Ragebeast, Thromok the Insatiable, Autochthon Wurm
Could also replace a few other big creatures for some enablers.
- Mirror Entity, Imperial Recruiter, Samut, Voice of Dissent could replace God-Eternal Rhonas, Archetype of Endurance, Impervious Greatwurm.
Nature's Lore and Farseek are land ramp spell upgrades for Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate because you have Savannah/Taiga/Garden/Ground and Farseek can get Plateau/Foundry. These two drop land ramp spells can be quicker ramp and they ramp with a dual land.
I don't think I've ever seen a manabase with Savannah/Taiga/Plateau, but also Guildgates... You could improve the manabase a lot. Some changes to consider:
- City of Brass and Exotic Orchard could replace Arctic Flats and Highland Weald.
- Fire-Lit Thicket, Rugged Prairie, Wooded Bastion could replace the three Guildgates.
- Brushland, Battlefield Forge, Karplusan Forest could replace Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge, Shivan Oasis.
- Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills could replace Game Trail and Fortified Village.
Good luck with your deck.

Ok, i did just ask because you could possibly try to keep the powerlevel lower to match your playgroup.
Im playing Atla too but with some other creatures than dinosaurs. The main problem you have is to get rid of your own tokens. Sac outlets help with that a lot. Some good cards to get use out of your eggs are Ashnod's Altar, Blasting Station, High Market, Goblin Bombardment, Skullclamp and Perilous Forays. Blasting station and goblin bombardment do especially well with your enrage plan.
In addition to that you want some untappers or token doublers to produce more than 1 token per turn cycle. Good cards for that are Seedborn Muse, Samut, Voice of Dissent, Thousand-Year Elixir or cards that just double your tokens like Parallel Lives or Anointed Procession.
Thornbite Staff is an awesome piece in here since your commander is a shaman and thornbite staff untaps your commander whenever a creature dies, so you can make another token whenever an egg or any other creature on the battlefield dies as long as you have 2 mana. Combine that with Ashnod's Altar and you can put all creatures in your library on the battlefield at the same time. The moment you sac an egg for 2 mana into altar, Atla untaps with the triggered ability from thornbite staff, you spend the 2 mana to make another egg and repeat that as long as you want.
There are several more combos you could add, if you’re interested in them you can find them in my decks description

A few cards you should add here. Ashnod's Altar as a sac outlet helps you to get rid of your eggs to get dinos in play whenever you want. It also gives mana for them which helps you to cast dinos from your hand. Thornbite Staff untaps Atla whenever a creature dies, so you can make another egg for every creature dying. In combination with Ashnods Altar you can make and sacrifice infinite tokens to get all your creatures at the battlefield in one turn. Untappers like Seedborn Muse, Samut, Voice of Dissent or Thousand-Year Elixir help you to produce more tokens each turn. Also Purphoros, God of the Forge does a lot of work here. There are some other cards that combo well with Atla, feel free to take a look at my decks description if you want to add some more synergies.
