I much prefer big daddy Ur-Dragon's "I just put 30 CMC of bullshit into play" way of doing things. It's a very slightly more honest (and thus much less likely to win, admittedly) approach.

I don't like using Teneb as it's a bit mana intensive and you can't res something scion is copying.

Ur Dragon does sound more thematic to a dragon deck as scion ends up distorting the deck around abusing him

These are my choices as well, but in the opposite order.

I'll go with this, then:

Magic: the Gathering |OT13| Ixalan - Port to Sideboard (warning: feathered dinosaurs)

Unless you guys want to leave off the warning.

This may have been covered since it was posted, but Jace's illusion token only cares about spells, not abilities, so no matter what, someone will have to spend a card to get rid of the illusion

I really don't see the point to the warning, but since it's you who puts in the work to make these threads it's obviously up to you.

I feel like the title should mention the dinosaurs, and GAF has an infamous hatred of feathered dinosaurs.

At least per Maro the back-side land frame was indeed derived from a possible Masterpiece treatment.

Imaginary shortlist for hypothetical Ixalan masterpieces:

Exploration
Expedition Map
Pirate Ship
...

Jungle Barrier?

Blossoming Defense is also a bad example, because it only targets your own creatures.

I would prefer Walk the Dinosaur but Ixalan - Way from Home would be my second choice.

If we go with Port to Sideboard keep it that and don't add the warning. Nice and simple is good and important.

Hmm, if no one's a fan of the warning, and I still think it's important to mention dinosaurs in the title, then perhaps this would be better.

Or maybe Saphron Olive will stream it.

EDIT: I didn't catch when the new rules will take effect on MTGO.

Do you think going super PW heavy with Jace AoT and JVP could work?

Excellent. "Oops, All Gideons" is finally ready to shine.
