Crosis, the Purger Discussion

Honestly this rout of "I'm just gonna do random crap, then spit out a few dragons" seems pretty funny. It's not necessarily the best one I've built, that would probably be My Personal Trostani Tokens EDH deck. I was really depressed when I found out Rowan Kenrith wouldn't work here though.

If you feel like it yet you could take a look at my inventory and see if you see anything interesting for the deck, just keep in mind it's only halfway done.

Also, do you think I should make a Crosis, the Purger deck?

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

Crosis, the Purger would fit beautifully, cheap too.

I would suggest cutting most of the always enter tapped lands you have for basics (or even previously suggested lands) as discard tribal loses a lot of it's strength the longer the game goes on and players run out of cards in hand, always enters tapped lands hurt tempo making the deck slower.

Now that being said flavor wise Crosis, the Purger maybe the stronger "specter" elder dragon, course bolas is stronger overall, but maybe let crosis join the party in the 99?

I think it would be best to operate it like a group hug deck until it gets to one-on-one. Then you surprise them by destroying their hand and killing their dudes. Then drop a huge threat (I recommend Crosis, the Purger) and... gg.

Painful Quandary is huge for this kind of deck, as well as Oppression. Cyclonic Rift and other spells like it help bounce unwanted permanents to hands, and give fuel to the fire. Also consider cards like Lavaborn Muse and Hellfire Mongrel to make opponents suffer even when their hand is low. Torment of Hailfire is a great finisher/removal for a discard based deck. I feel this deck is similar to my commander deck based on Crosis, the Purger, so if you would like more recommendations, just let me know. :)
