Firesnort Broodling

Creature - Dragon


When Firesnort Broodling enters the battlefield, each player that controls an artifact loses 3 life.

3 / 3

I seem to recall we have Jund dragons (Darigaaz and Broodmate Dragon ) but besides Crosis, the Purger and Nicol Bolas we don't have many Grixis dragons. Make me one... nonlegendary plz

: My Center Color; it's raw emotion is at its most Volatile, & can trigger aginst my own wishes.

: Secondary Color, & the source of my Austistic/Aspergian Status; as well as an intelligence that is incredibly high, but has never been tapped. #SunsetShimmeristheOnlyPonyforme.

: Ambition; Unending Doing; for Trying is the same as failing. The Source behind my Ego, Superego, & Id (ESPECIALLY ID! DID YOU EVEN PLAY XENOGEARS?! NO!)

These 3 Colors make up for what I am; or rather, what I think I am. But I wantd to challenge my own theory. Overtime, I'll mention personaliy traits about me in which all are true. Overtime, The list will get larger, but I wonder if I'm worthy of even Crosis, the Purger . Right now, the list is bare; but bear with be on this, there is going to be a lot of traits. However, I actually don't advise anyone else to do the same; I'm merely doing this for the sake of what I really am; something so few should ever do in the first place. Before I begin with a WIP, A Word Of Caution:

Never try to do what I'm trying to do at this time; it will seriously expose your Real Life Properties to Cyberspace. I'm just doing this so nobody else should.


Now for the Tick...

(Fear of Gags regardless of Media Form/Real Life)phobia (I can't even breathe in my nose; & ears don't work as breathing appendages; I don't even have Trachea...), Hyperactivity, Vivid Imagination, Esoteric, Non-Conformist (Does it look like I hate SUICIDE SQUAD?! I love that movie, & James Gunn rebooting it is a big mistake.) Individualist (NOBODY is allowed to redesign my own creations; especially a 2D Fighter I want to make for PS5 in the near future...), Brash (Uh, Yeah?), Arrogant (What? I'm part Hinedere you know...), Supreme Ojousama Hatred (Go ahead, you laughing W----. I DARE YOU. I DARE YOU W/ A HYDRA W/ INFINITE HEADS, M-----F---ER!!!), (Fear of Commitment)phobia (Yes; I actually have a fear of this.), Aloofness, (Fear of Canine Life)phobia (Uh, they trample down? They Bite? (sigh...) OK, It only applies to a dog that isn't a Toy Breed...), Incurable Sexual Desire for JP Erotica & nothing else (That's primarily why I have in me, Fan Service, Cute Anime Girls, I wish I could say more, but I might already have surpassed Rakdos, the Showstopper in terms of being an MF... DX), Opposition of Higher Order (I seriously LOATHE those higher class than me, & treat me like a (Swab the Deck.).), Teenage Wangst (Even at my current age; it's almost as if I never matured at all.), (Fear of the Hymenoptera Order of Insects)phobia (This was developed; & even morphed from the fact my Mother & Sister have this gene. I'd rather die by Bee Venom for myself; but I'm running out of time to do that this year...), Highest-Level of Misguided Feminist Hatred (I threw this in here as even Cassie Jaye; who made the Documentary "The Red Pill" after several other Docs of her exploring other things. "The Red Pill" explores the exact opposite of her previous Works; with so many being misguided lies about the MRM, & why Cassie herself wanted to explore this whole thing, only to realize even the guys are getting less than ever. Just sit down on the table & actually talk about true equality; which can't be achieved through individual gender rights or whatnot, but actually working together; why do we not do this from the start of evolution even?!), Defeatist (Never expect any optimistic result; thus why this makes the cut.), Supreme Hatred of Sadists (The opposite of Rakdos. So far, the only exception to the rules are Izel Hellgaia (She actually breaks the rule of cute, & actually looks rather sexy in a good way. Not Playable in Wonderful World yet though...) Kurumi Tokisaki (Cute, & affectionate looks, but she is a monster in battle; using Time on her side.), & "Dark Heart" (When the protagonist has the first name of "Heart", & Petra left the Drexler Institite's antithesis to die, she wants revenge; time to kill Hato-chan.), Opposes Drug use of any kind (Yeah, that's right you crackheads! Smoke that garbage so you realize recreational "MaRoWaNa" should've stayed ILLEGAL! (Actually, that sounds like a decent episodic Visual Novel: Ma-Ro-Wa-Na; Each Story follows a JP Junior High School Girl w/ a wish they want granted by you; the protagonist. They would be all Deathwishs. Oh, & don't confuse it for Weed, or Sa-Na-Ra-Na.)), Self-Awareness, Care through Guilt, Inner Sorrow imploded into Hate, Recollective-Flawed (IRL, I do something, the next moment; I seriously forget; Short Term is worse, but Long Term is only slightly better.), Nature Hater (I grew up in a Tow that became a city. Then was forced to Rural garbage against my will. Now I have to deal w/ this crap.), Tsundere Hatred Fiesta (Every form of JP media I watch, there's at least one Tsundere! What the ACTUAL F---! Do you even care about any other Anime Stereotypes?! You should know by no these gals suck as they OVERSATURATE more than JP Media now, & The Protagonist always ends up with this being anyway. "Go home & die."), Anyone who opposes my obsessive cussing ANYWHERE; even when censored "A Christmas Story" Styled. (This Clip is why I like this Holiday Flick better than your Rankin Bass S---.)

I love tribal. I have a really hard time building anything that doesn't at least have a tribe as a sub-theme so I wouldn't be opposed to seeing some tribal love even if its not the focus of the decks, much like Animatou had a zombie sub-theme.

If they do I for sure would love some new cards for underrepresented tribes like Dwarves, Orcs (who just got new cards in m20) or Skeletons Etc.

DemonDragonJ I agree I think all the invasion dragons and Planar Chaos dragons should not only be reprinted but get a new art treatment. The updated arts on Crosis, the Purger , and Rith, the Awakener were awesome and I would love if the rest got that treatment. The cards aren't as strong as commanders as they might have once been but when I see a card with awesome art im gonna find a way to build it anyway.

Fist of Suns doesn't cheat out creatures for 0. Fist of Suns replaces what you can pay, not the CMC. Morophos effects the CMC.

28 land is way too little. Bane of Progress , Planar Cleansing and cards that remove artifacts destroy your game. Reliquary Tower , Ash Barrens , Unclaimed Territory , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Path of Ancestry are all land that should be in the deck.

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma fits the theme, and gives all the dragons that don't have it trample

Sarkhan Unbroken , Sarkhan, Dragonsoul , Sarkhan, Fireblood , and Sarkhan the Masterless to protect them are some planeswalkers who help dragons.

Hypersonic Dragon ... if you had any sorceries like Wrath of God , and Crux of Fate instants and adds a haste creature

You need removal. Vindicate removes the Propaganda that destroys your swinging. Crackling Doom removes the opponents biggest creature. Assassin's Trophy and/or Putrefy removes a endless-combo piece. Swords to Plowshares removes indestructible. Removal is crucial to advancing your own game.

Crosis, the Purger , and Ramos, Dragon Engine are 2 dragons I play

Temur Ascendancy is a card that helps you draw more, and the haste on dragons is amazing

Taigam, Ojutai Master is my last consideration. Makes sure your dragons hit the battlefield.

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.
