Information

Several years back I put together a deck called Killer Krag which abused Trumpeting Warhowler and Zuberi, Outlands Warlord to make gauntlet bosses cry.

This deck is an updated version that makes use of the absurdly powerful Patrice, Your New Home to alleviate all card draw issues in the old deck, adds in some highly useful Time-based cards since Mark of the Grove and Trail Maker the TTPPFF influence requirements here and some minor dinosaur synergy for cheaper Killer access. Cirso, the Great Glutton still gives the AI fits and will often 3-for-1 ,Ila & Mizo can outright win you a game if it gets both Killer and Double Damage, Pteriax Mount can help give our fatties flying, and Howling Peak as always is fantastic in a deadlock.

I've gone back and forth on a fire-based versus primal-based market and I think there's an argument to be made for either. Ixtun Merchant is better if all the inspire effects hit it, but Jennev Merchant has a highly useful aegis and means we can run an anti-aggro hedge that Time Etchings can also pull in an emergency.

Open Way Supplier is interesting and I'll try it as a 2-3 of in my next run; a combination of killer support and power dork seems very useful here.

Not a fan of Jennev Cargo with so few sigils in the deck and I'm lukewarm on Xultan Conclave, but I like Praxis Painting - that's a good addition to the power base.

I've gone back n forth on Permafrost - I feel like Equivocate is generally more helpful in the gauntlet since it can really mess with the heavy synergy in the decks, especially against bosses. Plus since I'm running Kairos' Choice and Saber-Tooth Prideleader the list currently benefits more from fast spells. I think Prideleader is still worth keeping too fwiw, it really helps versus aggro and the AI does a bad job of playing around ambush.

Sodi's Spellshaper in market is an excellent call, I like it a lot!
