I don't know what could punish but Rampaging Ferocidon seems good.

It's funny I was looking through cards and just came across Rampaging Ferocidon and went, "Of COURSE! How could I forget THAT card?" :0)

Best I can offer is just saying no. Roiling Vortex for sideboard, Rampaging Ferocidon is probably better than Quakebringer for general use, Skullcrack or Tibalt, Rakish Instigator if there's burn or tokens involved.

What kind of life gain? Stopping lifegain is fine, but oftentimes there's far better ways to stop the deck than just saying no lifegain.
Although Ferocidon is 100% playable maindeck anyways, a 3 mana 3/3 with menace is an amazing body.

The Opponent deck was pretty much just gain life, with Fliers.
Not many Dinos who fly.

Honestly, what's the decks pay off? I've not seen any meta data for life gain decks doing well. Usually, you just play creatures that go over and just keep smacking in and removal for angels.

Idk life gain for the longest time has been a joke but I think its gotten serious support over the last few years.
Outside that do what does best and beat up up with creatures until they die from it.

One of the red leylines also prevents life gain I believe

Gabe_The_Controller unfortunately none of the Leylines do. I checked.

RNR_Gaming that's not easy for or to do if Creatures are getting +1/+1 counters from the Lifelink.

Both of the dinos I mentioned are legal in Pioneer however.

you should be up front with "all" the information you have on the life gain deck from the start, rather than waiting for people to offer advice and then revealing more informtion that negates that advice.
TriusMalarky had no way of knowing the lifegain deck had fliers.
RNR_Gaming had no way of knowing the lifegain deck used +1/+1 counters.

You could use the new Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider to mess up them getting counters.
Or maybe splash for white and go Naya for Solemnity .
