Carpet of Flowers Discussion

Hi! Great deck! Tough one for me!
What I like:
Your love of Ad Nauseam.
Good lord that curve is beauuuutiful.
Some suggestions to put in:
Noble Hierarch I'm sure you know about. Just an expensive upgrade :)
Protean Hulk could help fetch some of your combo creatures. Wacks your curve though.
Chromatic Lantern is necessary I feel for extra consistency.
And some to take out:
Avacyn's Pilgrim if you put in the Hierarch.
Carpet of Flowers may be here because you have a lot of blue player in the meta, but it seems like more of a sideboard card.
Otherwise... looks sweet. Hope some of this helps!

Suggestions on delaying a win until turn 6? So I can basically drop her and go off.
I made a few changes to my version to help with that..
Lifeforce to deal with black removal (use is little too narrow..)
Asceticism is sweet, but kinda pricy CMC wise to get out quickly
Another option, assuming I have the cards in hand, is dropping her early, and doing the old destroy everyone's permanents with the Staff of Domination Beast Within, Somberwald Stag, Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth combo - then just wait until turn 6 (not very nice, but hey)
Any other thoughts?

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon could be pretty useful. It can potentially dome someone for 11 after the Vial trigger. My only concern is the -X will typically hit our own pieces, which are mostly CMC 4 or less, but I could give it a try.
Carpet of Flowers is something I've considered for a while, but my meta is kinda hit or miss with blue players. Its either a dead card or ramps quite a bit. I'd need to pick one up before I can try it. Probably replace a mana dork with it.

I would also take out Carpet of Flowers and a lot of your random counterspells that aren't very good like Cancel and Dissolve. The thing with counterspells in this deck is that you're gonna want to tap out a lot which will be awkward with counterspells. Also since you're 100% gonna be hitting your land drops, Impulse seems worse than something like Pull from Tomorrow or even Compulsive Research which can turn excess lands into card draw.

Hey everybody, it has been a little while since my last post, but I am here to answer everybody's questions and clear up any confusion. So without further ado, lets start another dissertation.
@MadDogLai: I am well aware of the worldgorger combo, and have been considering it for a while. If combined with something like the Elemental Bond and Temur Ascendancy, then that also means you have infinite draw to go with that infinite mana. You would essentially win the game right there at that point so I have been really considered putting that combo in.
@Rabid_Wombat: Yeah, more rocks the better. decided to not go with paradox engine, but have been considering getting some new cards, in fact, I already have some on the way. Sadly, the Mana Crypt that I really want is not in said package. I also wouldn't mind owning a Mox Diamond as well. Those two are great cards. I am a little hesitant on Lion's Eye Diamond because it is a sac affect and well price. Those three all together are over $200. think I will start with just getting my Mana Crypt as a start and keep building up from there.
@potatopotatopotato: Yeah, I know that top tier competitive commander decks all have a low average cmc and are generally not built around attacking. I get that, but, I still feel there is a way to do it. I believe any deck can be competitive if build correctly. Maybe cards don't exist for said competitive version yet, maybe they do and nobody has built it yet. Doesn't mean I can't stop trying. So while your opinion is valid, I will continue with how I want to play and make my damn best attempt at this deck for competitive. Thank you for your advice, and if you have any insights on the deck, I will be more than happy to hear about it.
@Forkbeard: I am glad you enjoyed the deck, it has been a labor of love for quite sometime and I am happy to see how far it has come. So on the thought of Sarkhan's Triumph, I like it, but it is a 3 mana specific tutor. We run Demonic Tutor for the reason that it searches for any card. Which with that in mind, I would think of running another card that adds any card to hand like Demonic tutor does. Cards that come to mind are Beseech the Queen, Diabolic Tutor, Grim Tutor, or even Enlightened Tutor. There also the tutors that put cards on top of the deck, like Vampiric Tutor. I think the ability to search for any card is just arguably more powerful than going for a dragon. The deck also might need more draw power, so I think adding something like Fact or Fiction or Treasure Cruise could be happening. I am also having a hard time fitting any more tutor like cards into the deck right now.
@BrettonTheKid: I personally like Dragonlord Kolaghan. She is great, and it is fine even if the last ability is dead in the water. She is cheaper than Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, and does the same thing as him without stealing dragons, which if your opponents don't play dragons, is also a dead in the water ability. My playgroups also play a lot of clone affects, so I would end up losing all of my dragons and would die right there on the spot. I do run Homeward Path in the event my stuff does get stolen, but that is one card out of 99. I will not deny though, that Karrthus is a great dragon and was something I did consider. So on to the next part, how is Deathrite Shaman out of place. We get a mana dork that comes out turn 1, can use any of the 10 fetch lands that I have used, or any of the ones that an opponent uses (remember, he can target any graveyard), and he can screw with graveyard decks. Gotten stuck in an infinite loop with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed's undying affect? Guess what, Deathrite Shaman just exiled the creature that was going infinite with the undying affect from Mikaeus. In the words of a friend of mine, Deathrite Shaman is a 1 mana planeswalker essentially.
@Dragonstompy: I am very glad that you enjoy the decklist. It has been fun, but improvements can always be made. In my testing for Rhystic Study, It never comes out. This card stays in the deck and should probably never be removed. It is just so good for drawing. Most competitive decks aren't going to let a rhystic study slow down there progress towards winning so you will be drawing off of that. Some of the time, it will be a lot of cards. If they pay for the study, then they are slowing down their progress which is also something you want. People don't want the dragons to explode, but they also don't want to slow down. Rhystic Study contains only downsides for the opponents and we spent 3 mana for it. I have also considered adding Phyrexian Arena as an extra draw source for the deck along with Rhystic Study. Would certainly never cut the study though. As for Broodmate Dragon, for 6 mana (5 with The Ur-Dragon commander), I just don't think he does enough for the deck. He does give a total power of 8 across two creatures, but I think I would rather spend that mana someplace else. To me, something like Hellkite Tyrant is just so much better. It is a matter of personal opinion, but I can see his appeal for the double enter battlefield triggers with say Scourge of Valkas or Dragon Tempest.
Alright people, that is my lengthy explanations. There will be another update coming here soon. As I mentioned earlier, got new cards coming in, and hopefully they speed up the deck further. One of the new cards being Carpet of Flowers and with most generals using blue in some way, this means only straight profit/value out of this card. Anyway, have a great day everyone and stay safe.

I will submit my competitive deck for The Ur-Dragon as it looks like you need one. The Ur-Dragon Initiative. I have been working on this deck for a while and have been trying to make it as competitive as I can. I am also trying to get a Mana Crypt and Carpet of Flowers to increase the speed of it dramatically. Also thinking of doing the Worldgorger Dragon combo. Anyway let me know what you guys think and maybe we can move The Ur-Dragon out of tier 3 and at least tier 2. I think he is better than what a lot of people think.
