Bladewing the Risen Discussion

chadsansing on Kaalia's Vengeance

Go, Kaalia!

My favorite dragons to include right now are Rimescale Dragon (+ snow-covered lands) and Kilnmouth Dragon.

There might be a few other heplful ideas over at Snow-Covered Kaalia. I do like Liliana, Death's Majesty and Liliana, the Last Hope in decks like this to help with recursion and fuel graveyards for Bladewing the Risen, Bruna, the Fading Light and Reya Dawnbringer.

Have fun!

I really dig Butcher of the Horde and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled here! Nice.

I'm working on a Kaalia list, too, over at Snow-Covered Kaalia. Feel free to compare lists to see if anything there speaks to you.

I might bump up on some rocks like Chromatic Lantern, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, and Rakdos Signet, as well as the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots mentioned above.

If you can play snow-covered basic lands, Rimescale Dragon is an all-star. A few tutors might help put your super-impactful creatures into your hand and then on to the battlefield early - like Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor. Razaketh, the Foulblooded has a great tutor effect. I also like Liliana, Death's Majesty and Liliana, the Last Hope in decks like this for extra recursion on top of creatures like Bladewing the Risen and Reya Dawnbringer. Victimize might be good for that, too.

Happy brewing!

Suggestion: lose all the red cards - LOL jk ... you know how much I just love red :/

Atarka, World Render (ensure you win every combat with this guy in play)

Bladewing the Risen (Pretty expensive as far as color cost)

Crucible of Fire (might find dragons are big enough without this)

Parallel Lives seems to cute here. Without going card by card, I am not sure how many tokens you put out. This feels like a dead card more often then not though, and could be another dragon from above or that other land ?

Phyrexian Reclamation You've got plenty of threats so my first thought is this is not worth a card slot here.

more of a personal preference, but I don't particularly care for tutor effects as much, so Sarkhan's Triumph would probably open up a spot if this were me. they could maybe lead to more games won, but winning isn't everything when we sit down to play commander - worth keeping an eye on at least, as this could potentially be another card and the deck would operate just fine.

Also you way want to try running maybe one more land, but this is just a suggestion.

decks looks like its ready for a test spin !

DRACULA150704 on Five Stars Dracomancy

I find that a better way to get the big dragons out is to use the Scion of the Ur-Dragon (as your commander) and then turn it into The Ur-Dragon use The Ur-Dragon's ability to play Bladewing the Risen and then use Bladewing the Risen's EtB effect to return The Ur-Dragon to the battlefield.

Thus far my strategy is to get a critical threshold of dragons in the deck (27 right now) so that I can keep drawing and casting dragons instead of needing to reanimate them. I have considered Unburial Ritesbefore, but just don't know what to cut for it right now (maybe Serum Visions?). My current recursion suite either gives me repeated uses (Palace Siege and Volrath's Stronghold) or gives blowouts (Patriarch's Bidding with Dragonlord Kolaghan or Scourge of Valkas in the GY). Bladewing the Risen was included mainly for nostalgia, but is actually quite useful in Pod chains. Pod away a 6-drop to get Bladewing the Risen, which reanimates a dragon. Next turn you can pod away Bladewing to get Utvara Hellkite!

Demonic Tutor and Seasons Past combo to give me a recursion engine late game (Tutor for Seasons Past, which recurs the tutor). Bring to Lightreally ties up the whole package!

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons
