I can finally say that Ugin, the Ineffable is not bad and after painstakingly beating my head against the wall to build a customized deck I am pretty confident that I am on to something here. Eledain thanks for your feedback on Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma as well as Awakening Zone . Thursday night I ran those and you were right and having them in the deck slowed it down way too much and was pointless. thanks for the heads-up!

As a real-time player I still love the feel of the actual cards in my hands and it is very hard for me to transition over to the "virtual" MTG world so I have yet to make that leap. I realize this site is great in introducing builds at the click of the button or copy & paste. I use it for the play test feature and it helps a great deal.

Tonight I came in 4th place in tournament and that was huge with what I had come up against. The first round was with a young lady running a blue Merfolk deck. I have played against her several times before messing around with different builds and she is pretty tough. the first bout she nailed me like usual and I added a sideboard just for her and shut her down. She likes to get Sea's Claim out immediately so I brought Choke to this particular event just for her. It was hilarious and the expression on her face was every bit worth the play. "Sorry dear you just got choked.. Next!" That session I was 2-0

The next match I was up against Tron and this guy was running Once Upon a Time . The only reason he got me in two rounds was his hands were one step ahead of mine and bout two I was forced to mulligan down to four cards. he took the game with a 2-0.

The third and final match was another Tron with Karn, the Great Creator and it was definitely close all three rounds. He got Karn Liberated out turn three on the first bout and I popped creator. I couldn't come back so I gave him that win. In the second game we were neck-in-neck but I side-boarded in and dropped Pithing Needle shutting down Creator came out with two Wurmcoil Engine and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for the win. Again the final match we were neck-in-neck and it was a race to the finish and laughing like champs the both of us all the way through. It was a really close game but I again came through with another choice sideboard Thought-Knot Seer and ended the match with Spirit Dragon again. I did get to pull Ineffable a few times through out the game and it proved to bare it's weight in gold and I am pretty happy with this custom build and encourage others to try it out if you ever get the chance. I might eventually add two more Karn Liberated later on to strengthen the brutality of it but Tron is so much fun to play and this build is sealed~

Thanks for stopping by my page here, have fun and see you all on the battlefield!

Awakening Zone and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma seem really out of place here.

Cool deck. There isn't a single eldrazi in there so I would replace From Beyond with Awakening Zone . I don't think the one damage from the scion makes that much difference and you can play Awakening Zone earlier.

One of my favorite commandants actually are the Shattergang Brothers , and I think that you can add somthing in this deck:

  • Savvy Hunter : I like this one so much in decks like that, because she offers artifacts to sacrifice with the Bros, but also she can offers some card-draw.

  • Servo Schematic : I think that is one ob the bests atrifacts to sacrifice,because it gives a total of 2 servos (that can be more with things like Doubling Season .

  • Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist : the classic aristocrats finishers, probably can do something here.

  • From Beyond : The big brother of Awakening Zone , the tutor ability is useless, but works well to generate tokens.

  • Taste of Death : Sometimes, this will be devastating to your opponents (but not for you, thanks to your tokens), and also creates Food that you can sacrifice for the Brothers or some life.

  • Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast : Gives tokens, destroys artifacts, and can copy artifacts that you sacrificed. This is pure value in this deck!

  • Korvold, Fae-Cursed King : This can be a finisher, but the most useful that it has is tha amount of cards that we can draw with it. The control player will be sad with that.

I hope I helped you, I liked so much this deck+1!

Hey, you're welcome.

With Korvold, Fae-Cursed King you may want more lands (36) because a land can be the permanent you sac to grow, attack and draw with Korvold. Fetch lands even budget ones: Evolving Wilds , Jund Panorama , Naya Panorama , Blighted Woodland are good if you add Nesting Dragon as these lands give you for more landfall. High Market is a sac outlet that's a land.

There doesn't have to be a big Dragon change with Korvold. Prossh should definitely be included in the 99. Dragon Broodmother and Nesting make a good Dragon team to fuel Korvold's sac. Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire can sac, but Prossh is also a six drop Dragon and it's much better with Korvold than Vaevictis.

There's already several Dragons here that will be good with Korvold such as Broodmother (repeatable source of tokens and sac), Prossh (sac outlet and source of tokens), Utvara (repeatable source of tokens), Lathliss (repeatable source of tokens), Boneyard (good sac target since it can reanimate itself), Bladewing (reanimate another Dragon you saced).

The biggest change will be the support that Korvold wants. Korvold as General for Dragons needs more support than Prossh, but the trade-off is an increase in power level. However, an increase in power level isn't cheap. Many support cards you want with Korvold have expensive prices especially Dockside Extortionist , but even Nesting is expensive price. If this is a problem then Korvold might not be the change you want to make, but Korvold can do more than Prossh if you have the support.

If you choose to switch then these are cards to consider cutting:

  • Explosive Vegetation
  • Kodama's Reach
  • Rampant Growth
  • Overrun
  • Furyborn Hellkite
  • Fiery Confluence
  • Door of Destinies
  • Dowsing Dagger
  • Dragonlord's Servant
  • Moldervine Reclamation
  • Descent of the Dragons
  • Fearsome Awakening
  • Hellkite Overlord

The support you want with Korvold are repeatable sources of permanents to sac, some sac outlets and different recursion.

The ramp sources could be changed and the reason to change them is if you draw them after getting Korvold onto the battlefield then they will give you more value then just ramp. Examples of potential ramp changes:

Hey, nice version of Dragon tribal.

I see Korvold, Fae-Cursed King in the sideboard. You should consider using Korvold as General instead of Prossh? Prossh can be a great General when you can utilize the Kobolds with combos to win, but that's not the strategy here. As a Dragon tribal General I think there's better options.

Korvold is also Jund colors and he's a Dragon who can grow, but the difference is when Korvold grows he stays that big which means he can get really big and be a huge threat to repeatedly kill with Commander damage. Prossh can also kill with Commander damage, but here he's more of a one shot wonder where as Korvold isn't. Korvold has another ability that makes him a better overall outside of combos General than Prossh and that's card draw. When a General has a built in card draw ability then this just about automatically makes it a better choice than others that don't have one.

Prossh is excellent with Korvold as General because then each Kobolds you sac grows both Korvold and Prossh, but also draws you cards, a lot of cards. Prossh is a sac outlet for Korvold. Using Korvold instead of Prossh will require some changes, but honestly not that many. Ramp sources can change to give you more options of sacing a permanent.

I see Birthing Pod and it's another good reason to switch to using Korvold as General because Pod's ability to repeatedly sac a creature is busted value with Korvold. Greater Good and Genesis is a nice interaction with Korvold. Good is a sac outlet which triggers Korvold and Genesis lets you recur a creature from your graveyard at your upkeep including a creature you discarded to Good. This interaction is excellent with Extortionist since it's a card you want to get repeatable value from. Being able to recur any Dragon/creature that died is also very helpful when you want to sac creatures. Eternal Witness is also good since it can recur any card.

Nesting Dragon can be a repeatable source of Dragon tokens that can be sac fodder which then becomes a Dragon. Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire is a Dragon who has a repeatable sac ability. This Dragon also can really disrupt your opponents since you choose which permanent each opponent sacs. Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator are good with Korvold because then lands can be sac fodder. Tireless Tracker can be another repeatable source of tokens that sac.

If you like any of these suggestions then I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

I should! I threw this together 100% from what was laying in my binders. I could use Awakening Zone too I think, thank you for the suggestions.
