Descent of the Dragons Discussion

Should definitely run an urborg for the cheese morph flip on liege and also can help you just cast it. That said casting it in modern isnt really an option and neither is casting Descent of the Dragons

How exactly can you use Drana's Chosen ability without other allies but another Drana's Chosen? Makes triggering it's ability more trouble than it's worth. My recommendation is to add some token summoning cards, like Lingering Souls or maybe even Dragon Fodder, abuse the creature summoning ability of Purphoros and the Soul sisters and then when you have a nice field full of little chumps drop a Descent of the Dragons lategame and watch your opponent squirm.

I would recommend scrapping two cards, specifically:

  • Hostility because there are only three direct damage spells in your deck (not including copy spells). It's also pretty hefty on the CMC.
  • Since you are also running a looser tribal shell (with the inclusions of elementals, dragons, hellions, etc), I think that Kindred Charge isn't quite strong enough for its CMC. I would probably recommend scrapping that because it optimistically will only deal around 20 damage (I know, that's still not bad, but it isn't lethal and it's still fairly optimistic). I would either scrap that, or scrap Descent of the Dragons and Hellion Eruption, but those two I think are more powerful cards.

I would definitely recommend adding these:

  • Moggcatcher for more tutor power and protecting your creatures by not "casting" them. Even if you aren't in a super controlling meta, it's always good to make your creatures harder to deal with.
  • Quest for Pure Flame because it is essentially a Gratuitous Violence for 1 mana. It's super easy to set up, and you can pop it out of nowhere. Right before a big Descent of the Dragons or a Krenko, Mob Boss activation seems nice to me.
  • Goblin Bombardment is also really nice. It can sometimes give you the last bit of damage you need to seal out a victory, or it can be crucial in response to an opponent's board wipe/wrath. I don't know if that is a common thing in your play group or not, but it could be worth considering!

Really, there isn't anything bad with this deck at all! Those are just some things you might want to consider, but if not then the deck will still be fine! The last thing that I would suggest is just trimming down the fat (the avg. CMC). The lower your curve, the more you get to play. If you want a hyper aggro build, I would try to trim the CMC down to around >3.0.

As always, feel free to ask me any questions you have! I love helping out fellow red mages! :)

Looks fun for sure!

I'm not sure though about running Black just for Broodmate Dragon.
Descent of the Dragons or Dragon Whisperer seem better. Or maybe Sarkhan Vol.

Or there's always Garruk Wildspeaker.

cwalters14, it's a good spell for that. If you want to run it, by all means go for it.

The way I got around that issue was to always use things like Hallowed Burial/Cyclonic Rift (sweeper that don't kill). Descent of the Dragons is also a lot of fun.

If you use Willbreaker + Descent of the Dragons, you can target all of your opponent(s)' creatures, gain control of them, destroy them, and get a whole brood of dragons. It can be liable to removal, so maybe sideboard Willbreaker
