I've long known that playing Form of the Dragon is a good way to get yourself killed in a game of magic so it came as no surprise to me that, upon evaluation, Form of the Dinosaur falls into the same camp.

Well I was talking about how unfortunate it was that I couldn't put Form of the Dinosaur in my Gishath deck for practicality reasons when I remembered Tamanoa. Of course now my brain won't let the idea go so here we are.

Considering I don't think that one copy of each of those three critical cards strewn throughout a 99 card deck is a good way to spell consistency, I'm making this version a 60 card cocktail.

Card Synergy Thoughts

As I look through things I think the best way to approach this is sort of as a Naya Enchantress Ramp deck.

Let's see how we look:
Creatures (18)
4 x Argothian Enchantress
3 x Herald of the Pantheon
3 x Voyaging Satyr

4 x Tamanoa
3 x Verduran Enchantress

1 x Elderscale Wurm

Non-Creatures (20)
3 x Fertile Ground

2 x Trace of Abundance
2 x Journey to Nowhere

1 x Convalescent Care
4 x Ghostly Prison
1 x Searing Meditation

2 x Cast Out

2 x Form of the Dinosaur

2 x Form of the Dragon

1 x Sandwurm Convergence

Land (22)
2 x Serra's Sanctum

3 x Arid Mesa
3 x Wooded Foothills
4 x Windswept Heath

1 x Sacred Foundry
2 x Stomping Ground
2 x Temple Garden

2 x Forest
1 x Plains
2 x Mountain


Curve: Creatures/Non-Creatures/Total
1-0/3/3
2-10/4/14
3-7/6/13
4-0/2/2
5-0/0/0
6-0/2/2
7-1/2/3
8-0/1/1

Average-2.67/3.55/3.13

Considering how much of that is ramp it should be just fine.

And just for fun:
Draw: 10
Ramp: 11
Removal: 9 (granted 4 of that is from titanic enchantments...XD)

Edit: Doh!!! Wrong Satyr! Satyr Wayfinder now swapped out for the appropriate Voyaging Satyr

Wow, Tamanoa makes quite the combo. As long as you never hit something with 15 power, you'll recover. With multiple Tamanoas, you become an untouchable god.

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play
