Austere Command Discussion

Falkenbach1, if you are not going to use card tags, can you at least spell the cards correctly?

Last_Laugh, I talked with a fellow Markov player who said Propaganda, Ghostly Prison and similar enchantments were being utilized to shut the deck down. Have you had an issue with this tactic? I cut Cover of Darkness to get Vindicate back into the deck. Anguished Unmaking and WearTear are in the deck. Austere Command could go in for Vindicate but I worry that it will also hit us. Has that been an issue for you?

Sweet build so far!!

I'm honestly not a huge fan of Rachet Bomb. Maybe go with Austere Command over it. That's or Nevinyrral's Disk. I say this mostly because when you need a sweeper, you are usually behind, and need the board cleared fast and indiscriminately. Ratchet Bomb seems too conditional to me.

Also for lands Rogue's Passage for your Voltron sub theme, Path of Ancestry for fixing. Same idea with Temple Garden, Windswept Heath, Canopy Vista, Sunpetal Grove,Temple of Plenty and Scattered Groves

Well besides Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile, maybe Austere Command for removals.

Kind of risky but maybe Hot Soup

Also Teferi's Protection to prevent an artifact sweep.

Either way I really like the idea behind this.

Sweet build, the way the ur-dragon deck played out of the box for me, I would suggest utility sweepers like Merciless Eviction or Austere Command to make sure you can avoid getting out advantaged in the early game.

Also I noticed you took out Lightning Greaves, I would definitely recommend putting them back in, and even also add in Swiftfoot Boots, you really can't beat cheap haste and protection. Finally, maybe sneak in Darksteel Plate? An indestructible Ur-Dragon sounds awesome.

As far as goes, you could always add in Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots for protection and haste. Also, Akroma's Memorial for haste and a ton of other stuff haha.

As far as cuts go, I would cut Pyramid, Dahgotar, Cloudfin, the modual, the sentinels of arashin, and stuff like that. Your creature count could easily come down to 37 or less.

I would also suggest utility sweepers like Austere Command and Merciless Eviction

I know cuts are always hard, but one thing I always look at in my edh decks is, if im in top deck mode, will this 0/1 flyer save me? probably not? then its cut time

I would suggest getting Austere Command in there as sort of a catch all utility sweeper for emergency situations.

Maybe Sram, Senior Edificer for more card draw. Eternal Witness for some recursion. Sigarda's Aid for flash.

Also maybe Teferi's Protection to stop toxic deluge like effects from wiping your board.

Either way, sweet build friend!

I would suggest getting utility sweepers like Austere Command or Merciless Eviction in there as semi catch alls.

Also maybe Vedalken Orrery so you can have end of turn shenanigans

Harsh Mercy is an option in a non-tribal meta, Toxic Deluge, Consume the Meek, Gaze of Granite, Austere Command are other options that should let your dragons survive.
