Whenever a Dragon you control dies while Boneyard Scourge is in your graveyard, you may pay . If you do, return Boneyard Scourge from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Boneyard Scourge Discussion
1 week ago
You want cards with discard triggers / abilities and cards that work from the graveyard.
- Scourge of Nel Toth
- Boneyard Scourge
- Bladewing the Risen
- Whip of Erebos
Things like that. Consider your graveyard as an extension of your hand. Play it like Dredge.

I asked a similar question a year or two ago involving Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and being copied. The consensus was that for the brief time the copy was on the battlefield, both -2/-2 abilities would stack and all of my opponent's creatures would get -4/-4 and die to state based actions before the second Norn was moved to the graveyard.
Well, flash forward to today. I am in the refining process for a new EDH deck, and I got wondering:
Now, I understand this gets a bit more complicated with respect to Silumgar's actual ruling as it needs to be specified just how many Dragons are attacking each individual player.
So let's set the scene, to better walk through what's going on here:
- There are three opponents left
- I have out Silumgar, the Drifting Death , Boneyard Scourge , Phantasmal Dragon , and Necromaster Dragon .
- Silumgar, the Drifting Death has Blade of Selves equipped onto him.
- I attack in the following way:
What would the total -X/-X be that each opponent would receive? At face value, it appears to be -2/-2, right? After all, 2x Dragons are attacking each. But There are three Silumgar, the Drifting Death s on the battlefield. So, does each Dragon individually hit with -3/-3? So does this mean since I attack with two Dragons each, all creatures that each of my three opponent's control get -6/-6?
And it's honestly not just with this. I have a Helm of the Host in my deck, too. So, this is sort of a very real occurrence I can run into here.

RyuSama1990 I understand how the cards work, but I'm failing to see how they’re more valuable here than other dragons that fit his theme better like Boneyard Scourge , Malfegor , and Scourge of Nel Toth ; non dragons that fit his theme better, like Dragonmaster Outcast , Corpse Connoisseur , Balthor the Defiled , Flayer of the Hatebound , Dragonspeaker Shaman , and Anger ; or dragons that are just better in general, like Skyline Despot and Thunderbreak Regent .

Wow you were not kidding when you said you had massive changes for this deck. Most of cards that you added and cut seem to make sense as a whole, but there are a few changes I found surprising. As you said, you wanted to cut cards that only helped you cast creatures, so taking out cards like Urza's Incubator makes sense, but I was a little bit surprised that you took out Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. This card is insanely powerful in creature decks like this one, and gets even better with cards like Paradox Engine. I personally am also not a fan of having most of your removal only dealing with creatures, other than the Cyclonic Rift and Vandalblast, which means you only have one card that deal with enchantments, but it doesn't destroy it, just bounces it to hand. I feel like one of either Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile could be something like a Beast Within or Anguished Unmaking. The lack of basics was surprising, but if your meta doesn't run anything like Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, then it really isn't that big of a deal. I also feel like Homeward Path and Dragonlord Silumgar are kind of a non-bo, and I think that the dragonlord could be swapped for something else for this reason. I do like the addition of Lotus Cobra as it works insanely well with fetch lands, as being able to produce up to three mana off of one land is insane. I also like Boneyard Scourge and Thunderbreak Regent. They are definitely some of the weaker dragons, but having recursion or punishment for your opponents hitting your stuff, as well as being early game beaters is really good. Chromium, the Mutable was an interesting addition that I didn't expect, but flash, uncounterable, built-in protection, AND a 7/7 for six mana is pretty powerful. Overall, I think the new decklist is insanely powerful, just a little lacking in more versatile removal.

Hey guys! This is my first post. I only recently have gotten in to mtg and i have been playing commander for the past 2 months. I must say, awesome game! im totally in to it.
Now on to the topic, zombie dragons. I want to make a modern deck, my friends have one so I want one aswell. I wanted to make a zombie or dragon deck and thought, why not combine the idea?
The question im asking is, is this a viable idea and/or a fun idea? The games I play with my friends are really casual, so cards like Duress I wont be playing. Maybe something with Boneyard Scourge and Bladewing's Thrall would be cool.
My friends have decks like mono green elves, burn etc. I dont have the highest budget (I recently packed Azusa, Lost but Seeking and made a mono green commander deck with her) but I can make exceptions.
So if you have any cool ideas and maybe some tips, let me know!

It could allow you to bring back Boneyard Scourge if it kills any of your dragons, which is nice. But you need the mana to do it - and this beast costs 7. If you had a way to haste the regent when it comes in to play, you might be able to swing for a finishing blow. Possibly a sideboard card?
If you are looking for something to help even the playing field while you build up, maybe consider Anger of the Gods?
