"Huatli , Dinosaur Knight:Adding Aggression to the Aggressive."
Virgilio F.De leon Jr.MD
Before you continue please consider the following questions:
1) Do you love planeswalkers?
2) Are you playing a dino deck?
3) Are you playing an aggressive dino deck?
4) What the heck are you waiting for , buy the Huatli , Dinosaur Knight and add her to your Dino deck now.
All I can say is that you if you said yes to the first 3 questions then there should be no hindrance in adding this other version of Huatli in your decks. The fastest way to acquire her is to by the Ixalan planeswalker deck.
Granted that Huatli , Dinosaur Knight can only be valuable in dino decks or Changeling decks(which are also Dinosaurs) so I don't really expect her to raise in value as time goes on so if you are "willing to wait" then you can get her for a much cheaper price but if you are like me who is already running a Gishath EDH deck and still have a lot of dinos to spare to make another Dino deck then you might want to buy her now to complete your dino aggro EDH deck.
The great thing about Huatli is that she can be fetched by Sun-Blessed Mount and be cast on the following turn. Sun-blessed Mount is 5 mana and Huatli , Dinosaur Knight cost 6. All you need to do is not to miss a land drop and you will be able to play her.
So why play Huatli , Dinosaur Knight?
Her first ability makes a Dinosaur you control bigger by giving it 2 +1/+1 counters like on Huatli's Snubhorn for example which is also included in her planeswalker deck. So what would happen if you do not have a dino in play? That is ok too as you can target up to one dino , if you don't have anything to put the counters on you could still activate it.
Her second ability also comes in handy in a pinch as removal. All you need to do is have a dino handy to target. Let us say that your 8/8 Sun-blessed Mount can't attack due to another creature blocking the way? Use this -3 ability and it deals its power to a creature you do not control. The path is clear. Attack!
And the ultimate skill is the final attack skill which gives all dinos you control a 4/4 stat pump! All it needs now is trample and you are set but Huatli , Dinosaur Knight is just missing that green mana to pull that off. Who knows she might become a Naya aligned planeswalker in Rivals of Ixalan. Interesting.
So go and buy Huatli , Dinosaur Knight for that added aggression value. Thank you for reading and keep on brewing.
