Bogardan Hellkite Discussion

DrunkManSquakin666 on Kaalia

Simple, but effective. I like it.

'Far as kill spells go, I'd recommend Anguished Unmaking and Dreadbore, considering what you're going for, here. There's also Swords to Plowshares, if you can get your hands on it, Hero's Downfall, and Condemn.

I'd also recommend Thundermaw Hellkite over Bogardan Hellkite, but that's just me. Baneslayer Angel and Bloodgift Demon would also be nice additions to the deck.

Pretty solid deck, though. There isn't much I'd change, to be honest, and your mana curve is wonderfully low to the ground. May you proceed to slaughter all who lie within your path! >=3

DrunkManSquakin666 on Kaalia, Destroyer of Metagames

Interesting... Not usually a fan of Malfegor in a Kaalia deck, but it seems like he'd work, here, lol.

Pestilence Demon and Bogardan Hellkite seem like the only critters I'd take out. What for? Good question... Hmmm...

Platinum Angel, Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Thundermaw Hellkite, and Archfiend of Depravity are all solid suggestions. If you find yourself needing some grave hate, Angel of Finality also helps. Depends on what you're looking for.

Also, this one's a bit odd, but Oni of Wild Places is potentially hilarious with Rakdos the Defiler and Master of Cruelties, lol. Worth experimenting with, if nothing else. :)

hyperlocke on Scion of Ur Dragon x ...

BUT: If Scion of the Ur-Dragon is you commander and you put it into the command zone instead of the graveyard, the ability will NOT trigger, because it didn't die.

And because it kinda sounds like you read Destructor Dragon as an enter-the-battlefield ability: If you make Scion of the Ur-Dragon into a copy of dragon with an etb ability (eg Bogardan Hellkite), this ability will not trigger, because the Ur-Dragon never changed zones.

Welcome to commander! Info dump incoming. Take or leave anything you see here, because some of it is my personal opinion.

For mana base, you can go for the expensive "shocklands" (Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt), which are some of the best options around. Transguild Promenade, Nomad Outpost, and Terramorphic Expanse are more cheap options to fix your mana, even if they're a bit slow. Commander's Sphere can be used to fix mana, accelerate, and can be turned into a card later on, while Chromatic Lantern makes your mana base issues irrelevant. Burnished Hart ramps and fixes mana by getting basics. Really, once you have a decent spread of multi-mana producers, you should be fine on mana. I've rarely had issues, and I play four-color.

For utility, I'll always recommend Solemn Simulacrum, because it's just so good. I'd also advise Phyrexian Arena, Bloodgift Demon, and Underworld Connections for sheer card advantage, as well as Erebos, God of the Dead. Beacon of Unrest is just good and versatile. Karmic Guide isn't super splashy, but she can bring back anything you need to, giving you a bit of resilience. (I also endorse Reveillark because I love recursion, but that's just me.)

As for dragons and other big boys, Utvara Hellkite is splashy and hilarious, as is Bogardan Hellkite. Balefire Dragon punishes big boards, Hellkite Tyrant steals good stuff, and Scourge of the Throne can help you make mincemeat of a table. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is also a goodie, as well as Angel of Serenity and Aurelia, the Warleader. Razia, Boros Archangel and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight can both be good. For demons, Rakdos the Defiler can nuke someone's board. He enters the battlefield attacking, so you can dodge the first cost and make someone else pay the price. Demon of Dark Schemes might kill Kaalia, but the energy you get can often fuel bringing her back, as well as some other nasty goodies from your graveyard.

Plus, general EDH tips, you're gonna want to wipe the board. Someone's gonna get out of hand, and there'll be tons of stuff with some sort of protection. Things like Blasphemous Act, Fumigate, Wrath of God can help even the odds if you slip behind. For spot removal, exiling stuff is amazing. Oblivion Ring is cheap, but if you have a bit of money, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Utter End, and suchlike can save your biscuits. Pack a bit of enchantment/artifact removal, like Orim's Thunder and Wear so that you can take out problem spots.

...that's a lot of suggestions, but you can take or leave them. Any of them can help improve the deck, but they're not needed. Build for your playstyle, and if something's powerful but not fun, make it fun. Personally, I like to check out when building a deck, because you can use a bunch of toggles for advanced search (or even type them straight into the search bar if you learn the commands), and it also shows the expected price.

Always happy to help a new EDH player. Welcome to the format.

epajula on The Dragon's Nest

For this deck I don't like Zendikar Resurgence, Keiga, and Dragon Broodmother. Resurgence is too expensive IMO. Keiga is too situational, and sucks in wrath. Broodmother isn't awful, but value is hard to find.

I also feel you need more creatures. Bogardan Hellkite, Surrak, the Hunt Caller, Urabrask the Hidden and additional draw would really help you out.

Oloro_Magic on Kaalia Aggro

I didn't even notice you weren't at 100, you have to have 100 cards you can't have more in commander it needs to be exact. Razia's Purification, Razia, Boros Archangel, Archangel of Thune (you don't have tons of lifegain), Bogardan Hellkite, Dragon Mage, Rakdos the Defiler, Winter Orb (if Kaalia isn't out this just hurts you), Ghostway and Dolmen Gate can all be removed to make space (that is 9 so 4 of those can stay or you can address other needs with those slots). Good luck!

Honestly I'd just play Bogardan Hellkite over Dragonlord. Let's you actually hit the player.
