Deathbringer Regent Discussion

It does mostly feel like a finisher. It's amazing after getting blown out by a boardwipe, especially if said boardwipe is your own Deathbringer Regent! I've never really fought any other tribal decks and played it, but even if I was in a situation like that, I imagine the combination of Flying and potentially Haste can get the job done. It's definitely worth a slot, if you can afford it.

Derpsofdoom: Sorry for the delayed response! I just got back from a trip. I really appreciate your feedback! Most of the changes I made were aided by your feedback, thank you for that! I have been mainly playing this list on Xmage because I has been hard to go to my LGS. I am looking forward to giving these changes a try!

superluke1, ephemeralAubade, SLP_500, irongills, somedumbjerk, and Macharius5622 let me know what you think about the changes!

I am hoping that Bloom Tender is reprinted, it is not worth $30 if you ask me.

I would take out Reiver Demon for Deathbringer Regent it hits more creatures and leaves you with a dragon.

add Bojuka Bog and Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

i would take out Quicksilver Amulet and [virtue's ruin] because you have the mana to hard cast things and ruin only hits 1/5 the creatures all your other removal does. replace them with Leyline of the Void & Helm of Obedience which is an infinite mill a player combo.

take out [heartless summoning, again, because you have so much ramp anyways. i think Isochron Scepter would be a good add because it you have instant kill spells like Go for the Throat also Victim of Night hits alot of creatures for a 2 mana instant, another good option for scepter could be Darkness.

i think you should take out Languish and add Toxic Deluge because it gets around indestructible creatures

replace Visara the Dreadful with Avatar of Woe you can get it out easier and it does the same thing.

Gravepurge can clutter your top deck if you have more than 1 targets and you have to wait to draw it. i think Animate Dead would be a better choice

take out Rag Dealer since he can die so easily and you will put in leyline anyway so you get your value. add in Exsanguinate it can get you your life back and it most cases due to your mana be able to kill your opponents.

Price of Knowledge can be kind of clunky, instead, i think Mindslicer would be better beacause it puts everyone in a top deck situation especially after youve been killing all their resources on field

other neat synergies you could try to find room for is Contamination with either [reassembling skeleton] or Bitterblossom to lock out the filthy nonblack players

another triskellion kill is Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer. if devourer and skellion is in the gy ooze can use the devourer affect to be huge af, then use triskelions effect to remove its counters to kill someone while the devourer ability is on the stack. its kind of a last ditch sort of thing but it works

Magus of the Coffers works with your Umbral Mantle for infinite mana. also if magus and pila-pala are in the graveyard then [necrotic ooze] becomes infinite mana by itself so you can you that Exsanguinate mentioned earlier to kill your opposition

I run a Scion of the Ur-Dragon tribal deck, and I really like yours evolution of the deck using the Ur-Dragon himself. From my experience playing dragon tribal, I'd recommend Austere Command as a multi-purpose board wipe. Can hit small creatures while leaving your dragons unmolested, while also getting troublesome enchantments and/or artifacts in one card. Merciless Eviction is also a must run, I think for when you need to exile creatures, artifacts or planeswalkers. I'd also recommend a Boros Charm as either protection from board wipes or a surprise finisher by giving your commander double strike. I also like Heroic Intervention both as a response to a board wipe or as a way to make my boardwipes one-sided for only 1G.

I also agree with many of the earlier commentors. Swapping Temur Ascendancy for Elemental Bond is a good upgrade; you still get the draw when a creature enters, but it also gives all your creatures haste. Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury turns each attacking dragon into an anthem boost. I don't think I'd run city of brass though. The damage still applies even if you are using it with Chromatic Lantern or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Reflecting Pool is a good substitute. I'd also consider Bojuka Bog to help with graveyards and Krosan Verge as ramp/color fixing. Regarding graveyard recursion, I like Whip of Erebos. Giving your creatures lifelink is a nice bonus, and throwing a huge dragon at your opponent with lifelink is even better.

I find my favorite targets for Scion of the Ur-Dragonare two dragons in your maybeboard - Hellkite Tyrant and Steel Hellkite . I'd want those three dragons main board. I've found Intet, the Dreamer and Deathbringer Regent to be underwhelming, so they may be good potential replacements. I also tend to favor the OG Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker over Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh.

Good luck with the deck!

Rabid_Wombat: Thanks for the comment and suggestions. I do want to fit in Dragon Arch and Belbe's Portal but I do have a hard time getting rid of Palace Siege because of the recursion it does bring. Grabbing back the Deathbringer Regent for another round of field clearing is nice. I do have an extra board wipe style card in mind and that is Balefire Dragon.

Salmonman1064: Yeah, I like the haste that Dragonlord Kolaghan brings, but you are probably right in the fact that other stuff can do it better and the regular Kolaghan is awesome with a dragon army. Thinking of getting Temur Ascendancy to replace the lost haste giver.

MegaMatt13: Glad you enjoyed the deck and yes, I love Hellkite Tyrant, Balefire Dragon, and Scourge of the Throne. I just don't own a scourge. Selvala's Stampede looks awesome and I have seen it before and was really thinking about adding it. Though another card I was thinking that could fight for its spot is Kindred Summons, which looks like it could do work and for one mana more, it is instant. I am already considering replacing Elemental Bond with Temur Ascendancy, I just didn't own the Temur Ascendancy.

Thank you for all your comments, guess it is time to go back to the drawing board and see what I can configure. Might cut Harmonize, but could also add Soul's Majesty or the mentioned Selvala's Stampede.

Yeah, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth helps you balance out your mana by making sure you have Black. It doesn't replace the effects of the Lands, just gives them an extra one. It'll make all of your Forests tap for either of your colors, not just one. I find it really helpful in all of my Black decks (not all of my stuff is on here yet), even mono black.

For the Cytoplast Root-Kin , if you can find a way to keep both, I would. Especially if it's a card you enjoy using. I was just offering the Tusker as an alternative if you were looking to replace him.

I do still highly recommend Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet however. He's stellar cards on his own and becomes even better with the right synergy. He loves removal and board wipes, for example. To me, he just seemed like obvious fits here.

Also consider finding a copy of Whip of Erebos . It may not be a Reanimatir deck, but giving everything you control Lifelink and being able to grab a Creature from your Graveyard in a pinch is always valuable. Recycling your Deathbringer Regent or Nylea, God of the Hunt for a quick one-turn benefit, for example?

Oloro_Magic on Drag-on more creatures

Cut Crucible of Fire, Dragon Tempest, Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, 5 lands, Rampant Growth, Deathbringer Regent, and I guess Explosive Vegetation, that would put you at 60. If you find you don't have enough ramp put the ramp cards back in. I would also cut an Utvara Hellkite for another Thunderbreak Regent, if you can play three of those then I would try it's a really good card.
