Crucible of the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Davidmon99 I appreciate the ideas, but I'm not going to use Haven of the Spirit Dragon because if you look in my sideboard I have Crucible of the Spirit Dragon which I would prefer and I think that your right about putting in Dragonlord's Servant and also with Temur Ascendancy. Thank you for the ideas!

assuming no duals/shocks/fetches, I'd suggest the following budget (>$2) lands to fill out your mana base. Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, Exotic Orchard, Krosan Verge, Temple of the False God, and Ash Barrens. The tri-color tap lands also find their way into alot of Scion budget decks.

Mana fixing spells that make sure you hit your land drops early game but have other late game uses are Grave Upheaval and Sylvan Reclamation. Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic are definitely your best available mana rocks, but I would also add Fellwar Stone and Wayfarer's Bauble for early ramp. Farseek, Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, and Tempt with Discovery are great sorcery ramp options as well.

If you want more ideas on a Scion reanimator build, you can check out my deck There Be Dragons!

Neither of these is the best available Dragon Tribal commander, in my opinion; Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund has that spot in my heart. However, if I had to choose between Atarka and Yidris, I'd go with Atarka. Sure, you have access to fewer dragons as a result of her color identity, but I see Atarka more directly helping the dragons you play. You can still put in useful tribal stuff, but I feel that you miss out on the recursion that you'd get by going with Jund instead of Gruul. I'll leave a list of stuff here so that you can find these cards more easily when you build the deck.

You cannot use Crucible of the Spirit Dragon to turn a face-down creature face-up because you can only use mana produced by the crucible to cast dragon spells and activate abilities from dragons, and morph is a special action, not an activated ability. You cannot use the crucible to pay for triggered abilities like that of Hellkite Charger either.

You cannot use Dragonlord's Servant to reduce the cost of casting a morphed spell because it is a creature spell with no type, not a dragon spell. You also cannot use the servant to reduce the cost to turn it face-up, because that is not a spell cost, even when paying the card's casting cost to turn it face-up with a manifest ability.

I pay (3) to cast Acid-Spewer Dragon face down. As such he is a typeless, colorless 2/2 with no abilities.

Can I tap Crucible of the Spirit Dragon to remove storage counters for black mana to morph him over? In his current state as a face down creature, he isn't technically a dragon.

Also secondary question: Does Dragonlord's Servant reduce the (3) down to (2) for casting him face down? My understanding is that yes, it'll reduce the casting cost but not the morph cost (I'll still need to pay 7 to flip him over).

If you want to stick with the mana dorks, I would suggest Sylvan Caryatid over Rattleclaw Mystic. Yes you can sometimes make 4 mana the turn you flip the Mystic, but it is so easy to kill.

I run a Temur(based) dragon deck as well. I chose the mana dorks path though I sometimes need the extra two colors produced by the birds and the caryatid to cast an offcolor dragonlord.

Also, Crucible of the Spirit Dragon is just pretty bad. If you can get Haven of the Spirit Dragon, it is just $1 and let you cast your dragon right away. Also helps you get a dragon from your grave. If budget isn't a problem Cavern of Souls is the best tribal land, but way too expensive xD

Temur and Dragons are what I like the most too. +1
