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

nayaman - I did run Bladewing the Risen once upon a time, but even with Buried Alive there weren't enough dragons for it to stay in.

Winterblast - I've added Chrome Mox. Not concerned about T1 Kaalia though!

MrXilas, there are however 5 creatures in red and black that have Changeling. Still not nearly enough to make full use of Bladewing the Risen's tribal archetype, but it could still be doable if you reeeeeeeeeaaally wanted to use him.

The complete card list of this set has been revealed!

I am displeased that the majority of this set is newer cards, but there are some very nice reprints; in particular, I like the reprints of Archangel of Thune and Sheoldred, Whispering One, both of whom I need for EDH decks that I am buildings. The new artwork on the Kamigawa dragons as well as Bladewing the Risen is very nice, but I do not understand why Bladewing was demoted to an uncommon.

The reprints of the dual lands from Future Sight are very nice, but I dislike how only Horizon Canopy has new artwork, since I have four copies of Nimbus Maze in my blue/white deck,and would like to be able to have a variety of artwork for them. Hopefully, at some point in the future, the other filter lands shall be reprinted at some point and there shall be a complete cycle for Nimbus Maze.

I dearly wish that both Serra Angel and Swords to Plowshares had been given new artwork, but all the other awesome new art makes up for that, especially Disenchant and Condescend, both of which I have in various decks of mine.

It will not be easy to wait until November for this product, but I am very excited to know that it contains so many great cards. Is anyone else excited for this product?

I was pretty excited to see Bladewing the Risen reprinted as uncommon and then I looked it up. There are no common black or black/red dragons.
