Hey hkhssweiss, if you're still looking for a good janky Monored Commander, I recommend Feldon of the Third Path . Use his ability in order to spam creatures with high power and solid ETB abilities, without worrying about a Counterspell. Typical picks are Molten Primordial , Bogardan Hellkite , Tyrant of Discord , Dragon Tyrant , Rapacious One , Pathrazer of Ulamog , and It That Betrays .

Instants and Sorceries like Faithless Looting , Cathartic Reunion , Dangerous Wager , Khorvath's Fury , Collective Defiance , Pirate's Pillage , and Shattered Perception let you put these biggies into your graveyard for early game Feldon recursion. Orbs of Warding can help protect your graveyard from removal.

Other notables are Petradon (exile your tapped lands, return them untapped at end step) and Avaricious Dragon (use when you want to dump your hand into the grave, activate Feldon at upkeep to draw an extra card). There are lots of fun tricks you can do with Feldon.

How about something like Dragons Budget there is a rather nice synergy between Avaricious Dragon and Rakdos Pit Dragon, there may be better ideas, I threw this together rather quickly...

I guess it would depend on how much time you spend in topdeck mode. Sarkhan doesn't seem all that good, his first 2 abilities aren't great and his ult seems decent in a deck like this but you can't count on getting to it. If you want an effect similar to his ult you could try Avaricious Dragon.

Yo looks like you're having fun with this, I like it! +1 mate! I count 7.5 draw (though less, really, because some discard), but what you have doesn't give you many options. -This is commander! Draw like crazy so you can actually play!

What about Avaricious Dragon, Dragon Mage, Knollspine Dragon, and Runehorn Hellkite?

Sneak Attack reasonable cost and pretty cheap to cheat dragons from hand, i never tried because i don't like so much the idea of losing them, but it is something that caught my attention.

God-Pharaoh's Gift Don't like the cost, but the ability is interesting, i didn't even knew this card, thanks for showing, but i think the problem is losing it for the discard hand mechanics or not having the mana for casting it once it is exiled.

Etali, Primal Storm Pretty good, but not a dragon lol, i'm going to get all the non dragons out as soon as they get better dragons.

Warp World Know the effect well, avoiding this kind of cost.

Archwing Dragon For many times i get him in and out, because i hate when i loose him to the discard mechanics.

Cathartic Reunion, Sunbird's Invocation and many options for "draw" in red i already used, the thing is i made the deck low costa dragons exactly for Grafted Skullcap, Avaricious Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

going to see your deck right now, thanks for the tips.

The question I have about the deck is one of card advantage. It looks to do a great job slamming a 5 drop dragon, but against anything that can trade with or race that threat it looks a little awkward, as there are aren't the big hand refilling/card filtering tools I'd expect to see. A gemstone caverns/ssg/ritual doubling down on the card disadvantage, and when it takes a few turns for stormbreath to close things out I worry.

I'd take a look at Hoarding Dragon+draw engine (Dragon's Hoardis on theme, even if I'd prefer Ghirapur Orrery), Avaricious Dragon or replacing SSG with some Mind Stone.

There are some interesting 'game start' interactions with Gemstone Caverns - If you want some rogue, surprise deck-tech, try Providence- in a starting hand you can exile it with caverns and still get the effect.

Thanks dbpunk for the great suggestions! I switched Nihilistic Glee in and cut Mastermind's Acquisition out for now. I don't see any use for Body Snatcher for this deck since I don't play high-CMC-creatures and the card itself brings nothing to the table. But maybe I'm missing some aspect of the card. Brink of Madness is an awesome card for 1vs1-games but since I'm playing 3+ opponents I'm not going to include it. I put it to the Maybeboard though. Demonic Collusion looks like a decent card but the high CMC is quite a letdown since mostly you need to wait for another turn to get the use of it meaning you are going to miss on the hellbent-effects. Furthermore cards like Avaricious Dragon reduce its worth. Malfegor looks decent but not quite good enough since at the time you can afford it your hard will contain maybe 1-2 cards left. Sire Of Insanity needs a spot in this deck but I don't quite know what to cut out for it. Anyway thanks a lot for the great ideas!

Avaricious Dragon for some more reach? You can stack the archwing triggers so that you discard then get archwing back.
