Debtors' Knell Discussion

DukeSteele on Shadowkeep (Enchantment/Tokens)

This incarnation of the deck is having fairly regular FNM wins against fairly competitive opponents!

This week I won a three-man pod by casting Plea for Guidance to grab Debtors' Knell and True Conviction to make my Doomwake Giant and Thoughtrender Lamia more formidable, and while hitting one opponent, draining the other as I had Sanguine Bond in play.

Derpsofdoom on The Ur-Dragon Initiative

@DrkNinja: Good evening my friend. I thank you for your suggestions and leaving your opinion on making a Scion of the Ur-Dragon over The Ur-Dragon but I will have to decline I am afraid. As Rabid_Wombat has said, this deck is designed to be a competitive The Ur-Dragon deck because The Ur-Dragon is exactly what I want. He is a proper tribal commander that plays for swarms of dragons. Is it tough to make something like this super competitive, yeah it is, but I wouldn't say impossible. I am learning and trying to make a deck that is competitive.

I agree with some of your suggestions like O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami and Ramos, Dragon Engine is not worth running upon my tests today. Ramos is strong but will probably shine much better in his own deck. Works well with the bolster mechanic from Dromoka, the Eternal but that is one other card to combo with it. I am also half tempted to remove Herald’s Horn for maybe an actual rock but these are all things I am thinking about. You are also very right about Dragonlord's Servant and possibly even Dragonspeaker Shaman. Probably will go for some mana dorks to run instead of those so that there is more speed for this deck and mana that is use able for other spells other than just dragons.

I will tell you that you are not ignored and if I ever consider making a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck, then I will gladly consider many of these cards, but for now and for as long as I can try, this deck will one for The Ur-Dragon. I will also mention that some of the cards that you have mentioned are now some that I am considering for this deck. Debtors' Knell looks awesome and is amazing recursion for any deck.

Thank you for all your time and I hope you did at least enjoy the deck that I made for The Ur-Dragon. Please have a great day and I wish you the best of luck in all your future magic endeavors.

So... I just built this deck for my best friend, and I have a lot of knowledge if you are willing to listen.

The first thing I want to say, don't play The Ur-Dragon as your commander. I get why you did but less on your dragons isn't worth, having to pay 9 CMC for your commander. With Sion as your commander you get to play it turn 5, and put the Ur-Dragon on the table the next turn for , then you just reanimate it with Teneb, the Harvester or any reanimation tool.

Cards To Add Or Look At:

Cards to take out:

  • Ramos, Dragon Engine: When you play dragons you are under constant bombardment of Wraths because your creatures hit hard and do so much. Ramos will never make it to 5 +1/+1 counters which means he's just a flying body. He needs to be in a deck based around him or using +1/+1 counters.

  • Dragonlord's Servant: I get why it's in here, but again you can cheat dragons out with reanimation and this isn't good enough. Plus Heartless Summoning is harder to deal with because enchantment, and then it gives off so...

  • O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami: the card is WAY too situational, it assumes that you are playing against a deck that wants to attack you and not by other means. My play group is Omnath, Daretti, Mizzix, and Superfriends none of which this card works to help defeat.

  • Dragon Tempest: So you already have Temur Ascendancy which is better than the haste on this card, and Warstorm Surge does more damage per dragon. Ultimately this card relies on you keeping a huge board state which just isn't a reality when you sit down at the table with this deck.

  • Herald’s Horn: Descendants' Path is just better.

If you want some good ideas for the deck just come look at the deck I built for my friend. Its super competitive and honestly has been a threat to our play group.

DrkNinja on The Ur-Dragon - There can be only one

So... I just built this deck for my best friend, and I have a lot of knowledge if you are willing to listen.

With Sion as your commander you get to play it turn 5, and put the Ur-Dragon on the table the next turn for , then you just reanimate it with Teneb, the Harvester or any reanimation tool.

Cards to take out:

  • Boneyard Scourge: it's just not that good, I'd rather run Reanimate or Dread Return in its place to bring back a dragon that does something and isn't just a body.

  • Ramos, Dragon Engine: When you play dragons you are under constant bombardment of Wraths because your creatures hit hard and do so much. Ramos will never make it to 5 +1/+1 counters which means he's just a flying body. He needs to be in a deck based around him or using +1/+1 counters.

  • Territorial Hellkite: Its too RNG based it's not always gonna do what you want it to do; there are just better dragons to take this slot.

  • Dragon Tempest: So you already have Temur Ascendancy which is better than the haste on this card, and Warstorm Surge does more damage per dragon. Ultimately this card relies on you keeping a huge board state which just isn't a reality when you sit down at the table with this deck.

  • Consecrated Sphinx: The card is way too expensive and it doesn't get any cost reduction because you are playing a dragon deck. There are dragons that are just better to take it's place.

  • Dragonlord's Servant: I get why it's in here, but again you can cheat dragons out with reanimation and this isn't good enough.

  • O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami: the card is WAY too situational, it assumes that you are playing against a deck that wants to attack you and not by other means. My play group is Omnath, Daretti, Mizzix, and Superfriends none of which this card works to help defeat.

  • Spellbound Dragon: this is only good if you discard dragons to reanimate them.

  • Sunscorch Regent: lets imagine you get this card to become a 20/20 before it gets back to your turn then, I can now Unsummon/Doomblade/Path to Exile/etc. and all it's hard work was for nothing. It's too big a target and takes too long to matter.

  • Fractured Identity: it helps the people you are eventually trying to kill too much to be competitive.

  • True Conviction: It's good but its too expensive when you could play akroma's memorial for the same CMC that doesn't require THREE white.

  • Moat: Dawg... I think you have somethings mixed up here... You are playing DRAGONS, you dare a mothafucker to swing into you! You need to feed your dragons man! Honestly you are the one on offense in this deck you shouldn't care about anyone attacking you; even if they are playing something as annoying as elves, Balefire Dragon just wipes the table with their boardstate. There's just a better card for this slot.

  • Mirror of the Forebears: Mirage Mirror is just better in all ways.

  • Herald’s Horn: Descendants' Path is just better.

Since I can't figure out how else to display them, here is my "acquire" list that will replace other cards in the deck:

Akroma's Memorial - Debtors' Knell - Massacre Wurm - Path to Exile - Phyrexian Arena - The Scorpion God

dbpunk on Best third color for 3 ...

I run WB enchantments and I gotta say, B works out great in those colors. I vote Abzan honestly, especially considering some of the really strong effects for enchantments like Doomwake Giant, and enchantments like Debtors' Knell, Lethal Vapors, Dictate of Erebos and Deadbridge Chant.
