Draconic Roar deals 3 damage to target creature. If you revealed a Dragon card or controlled a Dragon as you cast Draconic Roar, Draconic Roar deals 3 damage to that creature's controller.

Draconic Roar Discussion
4 weeks ago
ellie-is, my thinking on Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge is that with all the removal from instants, board wipes, and Dragon Tempest (which I'm really running 8 of with Scourge of Valkas), I should end up with a ton of artifacts off of Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge's removal trigger. I'm actually running Anger of the Gods over Pyroclasm specifically to wipe my little support creatures. I figure by the time I can cast anger of the gods with dragons on the table, I'll have enough mana to cast dragons without the servants. In the meantime Gadrak is a good blocker.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is also at a all time low and may be worth looking at (spell book version sitting at same price as sarkan)

Although the deck accelerates pretty quickly once it gets going, you may want to play some copies of Draconic Roar to deal with early game threats. I also prefer something like Scourge of Valkas over Demanding Dragon because you would essentially be getting the ability of the latter each turn. Stormbreath Dragon is good too. I remember playing a dragons deck in Tarkir standard that splashed black for cards like Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, Foul-Tongue Invocation, and Crux of Fate. Doing something like that will always be another possibility to consider.

Even though cycling is important to ditch bricks in your hand, it's also good to have targets that incentivise you to discard, like Bladewing's Thrall .
I know it may look like without being able to cast it that's an uselees card. However, since you're adding discard spells to the deck, it becomes possible to effectively use it. Also, you'd never want to cast it anyway. Four mana por a "vanilla" 3/3 is never a good deal.
Another good discard target would be Anger . By having it in your graveyard all of your creatures automatically have haste, regardless of their types, while also not requiring any mana investiment. Just to provide an example:
- Turn 2 and you have two mana. Instead of spending two mana to cast Dragon Tempest and "losing" the turn, by discarding Anger through Faithless Looting or Cathartic Reunion you'll have simultaneously set up your creatures to have haste while also getting card advantage.
Still on the discard topic, there is a card that can also help you cycle through your deck while cheapening the cost of your dragons, and that is Hazoret's Monument . It's more resilient than Dragonspeaker Shaman and reduces the cost of all of red creatures instead of just dragons.
A great card for any dragon deck is Thunderbreak Regent as it's cheap and gives amazing protection to your dragons.

Silverdrake thanks again for helping me with my decks.
The initial version had both Lathliss, Dragon Queen and Draconic Roar . I took Lathliss out because i could never really cast it and gain value out of her because of either mana issues or just if i was losing she wasn't saving me and if i was winning she wasn't doing anything that really mattered anyways. Draconic roar felt very bad against mono green stompy and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip so i took it out in favor of Dreadbore that also hits random Nissas and Okos. I didn't get to try Demanding Dragon , what is it good against? I imagine it being good against 0 creatures decks.
Let me know what you think about my reasonings :)

Looks fun! Surprised to not see a 1-2 of Lathliss, Dragon Queen though. Demanding Dragon could find a home in here, too. Probably Draconic Roar as well, if you're looking for more removal to help you survive
