Dragonlord Atarka and Bogardan Hellkite instead of Dragon Egg and Dragon Whelp maybe

miracleHat on Commander 2017 - Spoilers

I don't know if this has been brought up or not, if it has, my apologies for beating a dead horse.

Think of this imagery. You are on the battlefield, the 2 armies have converged bodies of mythical creatures are strewn without care as spells are thrown around with disregard, carnage and death permeate the air. To the northeast, coming from the jungles of [place], are the fiercesome cat warriors. Their homeland has been attacked and decimated thrice too often. Their opposing enemy is converging: the fearsome dragons. Their leader: The UR-Dragon. The cats send their champion Arahbo, Roar of the World to fight the Dragon Champion as a means to end the bloody conflict. The dragons... well... I guess they can send any dragon (Bogardan Hellkite seems good?). Arahbo, Roars a Mighty Roar and charges as the beast approaches. Arahbo pounces, wielding the Bloodforged War Axe (blutgeschmiedete kriegsaxt), splicing himself into two copies. The hellkite becomes wreathed in Warstorm Surge as it flies to meet it's foe.

You can see why this is just slightly ridiculous right?

Yes Arahbo comes out earlier turn 2-3 right?. But, if you have The UR Dragon as the general, Bogardan Hellkite can come up the turn after (with flash) and burn all of the kitties. And this is chosing a sub-optimal dragon, let's not talk about what happens when [insert 10 other dragons that do really bad things to people] hits the field.

Assuming you want to keep this deck Rakdos your first auto include is Dragonlord's Servant just to make the dragons cheaper; in the vein you may also want to include Urza's Incubator. The dragons you are running are largely okay but I would suggest Scourge of Valkas, Bogardan Hellkite, Deathbringer Regent, and possibly replacing the non-dragon creatures with other goblins to play Predator Dragon and Voracious Dragon. The goblin support would give you more presence in the early game and allow the dragons to be much more impactful.

As for your removal I would play Terminate over Dreadbore and then if you can afford it Fatal Push is probably the best removal out there, if not Victim of Night is a solid alternative.

I would also drop all the other instant and sorceries you have in the deck, Torment of Hailfire is a punisher card which I find to always be just bad, and the rest aren't necessary as dragons have evasion. Instead I would up the goblin support and most importantly add discard effects, Inquisition of Kozilek and if you can afford it Thoughtseize (That card is crazy expensive I know) will help you slow down your opponent while you accumulate a board presence, and it will also rob them of some potentially vital cards.

You should also consider running Crux of Fate at least in the sideboard as a board wipe which will not really harm you.

Let me know which way you want to go and I am happy to continue to help you refine the deck, it has a lot of potential and I'm excited to see where it goes.

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

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.
