Creature — Dinosaur

Whenever this or another creature enters the battlefield under your control, you gain life equal to that creature's toughness.

Hi Everyone,

I finally put the deck together and took it out for a test run! Only played 1 game with it at my local game store but it turned out to be hilarious.

I could have assembled the Polyraptor and [card:Marauding Raptor] combo but took a different route with a hasty Ghalta and Mavren making a token copy of itself and having a Zilortha, Apex of Ikoria  Flip enabling me to hit through for a solid 30 damage!

I also got in an unblocked Gishath, Sun's Avatar hit which spewed out another 5 dinosaurs including Verdant Sun's Avatar to gain tasty 28 life.

Had fun and got to do my thing!

If anyone else puts this kind of list together let me know how it goes.

Hey. I was just scrolling around to get some ideas to improve my PreCon as well. Because you are open for some suggestions here are my 2 cents on this:

  1. Panharmonicon and all other cards which will copy an effect wont work with Pantlaza. I would cut all cards which double ETBs. A good replacement could be Teleportation Circle. Ur Commander would be a new instance, therefore it works.

  2. In my opinion a CMC of 4.5 is way to high. I would definitely cut some expensive cards like Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Verdant Sun's Avatar, Earthshaker Dreadmaw or Annoyed Altisaur. The impact of those cards are very low in comparison to their cost.

  3. With Vedalken Orrery u need open Mana at ur Opponents turn. Beside most of ur Dinos cost 5+ Mana u will skip ur entire turn or dont use Vedalken Orrey. One suggestion are Mana Doubler like Mirari's Wake or cards to untap like Seedborn Muse/Wilderness Reclamation

I love dinosaurs but there's alot of hype since they just printed a bunch of new ones. Your deck has to many 1 of and 2 ofs. You are going to need more 3-4 copies of less different dinos for more consistent game play. Since your deck is based around the enrage ability that is what I will focus on. For starters I'm going to suggest taking these cards out.

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn - too expensive and has no relevance other than being a dinosaur

Wakening Sun's Avatar - too expensive and there's much cheaper board wipes than an 8 Mana dinosaur. This guy is extremely good in commander but not very good for 1v1 60 card decks.

Verdant Sun's Avatar - again he's a good card but there's no relevance to the strategy other than he's a dinosaur and he's a 7 Mana drop.

Rampaging Ferocidon - you are running a creature heavy deck so his ability will hurt you way more than it will your opponent. If you are adding him for the lifefain there's another dinosaur that cost the same but doesn't have that same drawback.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar - extremely good card but he's very expensive for what your trying to build. He will go back down in price eventually but for now I'd suggest taking him out.

Gigantosaurus - he's to Mana expensive. In a 3 color deck trying to get 5 green is going to be more of a challenge than he's worth. If you were running mono green he'd be a great add but for right now I'd take him out.

Bellowing Aegisaur - for 6 Mana the game would gave to continue to go on for a few more turns to get any real value out of him.

Cards you should add more of

Marauding Raptor - one of the best cards in an enrage deck for an immediate activation and makes your dinos cheaper

Ranging Raptors - great for early game and consistent Mana ramp throughout the game.

Raging Regisaur - great for enrage triggers and offers you some removal

Ripjaw Raptor offers consistent card draw which cannot be understated.

Forerunner of the Empire he offers consisten board enrage triggers and you get to search for whichever dino you want

Cards I'd add you don't have listed Drover of the Mighty - offers cheap Mana ramp and is a 3/3

Raptor Hatchling - not very good by himself but when you put him with Forerunner of the Empire he gives you 2 separate counts of enrage.

Last thing is with a deck like this your running too few lands. You need at minimum 23-24 lands for running large creatures that you are hard casting. I know this is alot but I hope this helps.

Hey, there! This looks really fun :)

As far as making things a little more competitive, one thing I can offer is: As someone who runs an Esper combo deck, one of the biggest things you can do for a combo deck is to make your combos synergize better with everything else in your deck, and not just each other.

Right now, I see Lurking Roper/Famished Paladin, Presence of Gond, and Healer of the Pride as an infinite combo where each piece is 1) hard to tutor, and 2) doesn't synergize with your overall gameplan of massive creatures dishing out damage.

An alternative infinite combo that synergizes better is Savage Ventmaw and Aggravated Assault, since both those cards do things with the rest of the deck without each other.

So, if I did the switch over to a more synergistic set of cards, I recommend replacing:

Ageless Entity -> Lathiel, the Bounteous Dawn

Colossal Dreadmaw -> Blossoming Bogbeast

Enduring Angel  Flip -> Archivist of Oghma - enduring angel looks dope, but your life total shouldn't hit zero.

Famished Paladin -> Faeburrow Elder

Healer of the Pride -> Serra Ascendant (just broken in EDH).

Verdant Sun's Avatar -> Old Gnawbone

Wall of Reverence -> Smothering Tithe

Presence of Gond -> Armadillo Cloak

Elemental Mastery -> Kenrith's Transformation

Alhammarret's Archive -> Aggravated Assault

The idea behind some of the picks is to get lifegain ability out a bit more consistently, and create fuel to power your giant creatures. I also don't know what your budget looks like, so full disclaimer there: some of the cards I recommended are expensive.

Happy building!

Without info on a budget it is a bit hard to suggest upgrades. However; as said before you need to lower your mana curve and focus the deck on either landfall or beaters. I would also cut 6 of the lands to go down to 38 and add in much more ramp. Cutting:

6 lands

Terastodon

Elder Deep-Fiend

Verdant Sun's Avatar

Meteor Golem

Sphinx of Uthuun

Scourge of Fleets

Tromokratis

would give you 13 free spots. If you filled those spots with 1 and 2 CMC ramp and cheap removal your games would go much smoother. Personally I'd go with 8 ramp and 5 removal, and here is where what your budget is will matter for choices.

Ramp

Birds of Paradise

Elvish Visionary

Exploration

Fyndhorn Elves

Llanowar Elves

Burgeoning

Wild Growth

Arcane Signet

Devoted Druid

Lotus Cobra

Talisman of Curiosity

Removal

Beast Within

Pongify

Cyclonic Rift

Rapid Hybridization

Negate

Disperse

Brazen Borrower

Boomerang

Divide by Zero
