So recently I've been trying to make a deck with the main focus being Aerodactyl and getting it into play. To do this, I need to play Old Amber Aerodactyl, which puts any Aerodactyl found in the bottom 7 cards of your deck onto your bench. The problem is, in Standard, there is no consistent way to put Aerodactyl at the bottom of your deck, as far as I'm aware of. In Expanded there is Caitlin, but I don't want to be forced to Expanded because of one card. Is there any Standard card that I'm missing that can put cards at the bottom of your deck?

What you could do is use Ultra Ball to discard the Aerodactyl to your discard pile.
Than you could use the Resources Management Oranguru to help shuffle them to the bottom of your deck.
You could also use Looker + Looker Whistle in the Deck.

Most people use the above strategy in Discard/Mill out decks or Shock Lock decks.
You could try a weird hybrid version.
Start off Discarding Energy.
Than mid way go offensive with Aerodactyl.

I don’t know.
Fruit for Thought.

It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

You know who's worked a lot on some really solid Aerodactyl builds?  Theotherguytm.  Unfortunately, he hasn't been on here in over six months...


There's no easy way to put things on the bottom.  However, if you run enough Fossil Excavation Kit, you can find the aerodactyl pretty efficiently.  It's also often good to run Talonflame from StS, because it gets you very nice starting draws.  However, as I don't play the deck actively, I couldn't tell you what build is best at the moment.

The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.
