Dragon Broodmother

Creature — Dragon

Flying

Dragon Broodmother Discussion

Gadianten on Thromok Commander

Hornet Queen , Dragon Broodmother and Avenger of Zendikar for when you need your creatures to creature more creatures. But creatures need lots of room to roam so I would add Kodama's Reach and Cultivate while putting in around four more lands to ensure you have enough space for the horde of screaming, gnashing and clawing gribblies. If someone wants to get rid of a 25 or larger power Thromok the Insatiable just give it to them with a Fling . If you have a large menagerie you could also try Burn at the Stake .

NeonEndymion on The Ur-Dragon

-Good point in re Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner /the 3 CMC clump. This is primarily the reason, even though I'm considering moving up to the full suite of fetchlands this week (to help make Deathrite Shaman 's mana production more reliable and to maximize the impact of Nesting Dragon , as well as to help be able to cast Dragon Broodmother more reliably/fix mana more or less perfectly), I still can't justify the inclusion of Crucible of Worlds , esp with the more aggressive draw package.

-Good point also about Dragonlord Kolaghan being tutorable also w/ Worldly Tutor ; I'll do some more testing and see if my being flooded with haste effects was more a corner case in 2x games.

-Agreed about Sarkhan the Mad ; if anything, that gives your build a 1x flex slot. If you're having trouble punching through pillowfort effects but not being punished for a large board state with tons of wipes/spot removal, then he's great; maybe slot in your sideboard Surrak Dragonclaw in control-heavy metas.

I might be able to slam about 3-5 more games this week in paper, but aside from some manabase tweaking and adding in one more card (what do you think I'm particularly missing at this point, if indeed I should go back down to 36 lands), hoping to leave this locked for a little bit, especially since War of the Spark didn't give us too many new shiny toys to play around with.

Vlasiax on Bow before Draconic King!!! | *M20* Update

3 months ago

NeonEndymion,

  • Conqueror's Flail seems to work quite nice for me since it often gives 3-5 power boost, which is more than enough to win with Atarka, World Render + The Ur-Dragon . I once equipped it onto Dragonlord Dromoka because I didn't have any better target and it gave me so much life that I didn't care about lack of blockers later. Also if it draws hate it's great because I have waaay better things to come in terms of Artifacts/Enchantments. Also giving 3-5 power means that Bloom Tender will give 3-5 mana.
  • Kindred Discovery has been on my mind for about 2-3 weeks now. It sometimes gets in a way of actually casting a Dragon so after I've listened to a few podcasts I'm starting to thinking about one-shot draw effects like Night's Whisper or Painful Truths in it's place. Don't like the idea of having another conditional draw especially after someone blows my board but if I'd swap something right now I'd probably do Kindred Discovery for Elemental Bond
  • How's been Greater Good performing for you? I wish I had some sort of sac outlet for Dragon Egg tokens but I think Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Devour babies from Dragon Broodmother should be enough.
  • Planeswalker removal shouldn't be too much of a concern since I review planeswalkers by their abilities and if it actually impacts my board when they "do the thing" and immediately after hit the bin. So Sarkhan Vol 's haste or Act of Treason is good enough and Sarkhan the Mad after dropping of The Ur-Dragon 's trigger (done it a few times already, feels great) is just knock-out spell (best used for pillowfort players) and later I don't care if it stays. Sarkhan, Fireblood is so small and on the surface seems to be weak that other players don't care about killing it unless it's unblocked and can easily die. But it's actually a ramp/fixing planeswalker. All of them also have token spawning options, which helps win with Scourge of Valkas / Dragon Tempest .
  • Also you've mentioned some cheap interaction or ramp spells - do you have anything specific in mind? I'm thinking recently about Mystic Remora .
Also I'll respond to your other thread later, this one seemed to be shorter :D

Jack-Frost on Xenagos' Dragon Swarm

4 months ago

Check out my Xenagos Dragon deck, Xenagos, God of Revels . It used to be completely dragon tribal but i've shifted a bit away from that and found that it works excellently. I've been playing and tuning it for the better part of 6 years now, and I think it's in an excellent state. It's not the most powerful because i'm trying to keep it fun for everyone else to play against, but I still think you might pull a few good ideas from there.

As for any suggestions off the top of my head, you might want to look into speeding things up a bit. It won't overpower the deck at all, but it'll allow you to play your own game a bit more and have more control. Cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman are nice, but rather than playing that why not instead play a ramp spell that'll accelerate every card you play and can't be removed as easily. Look into Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , and Explosive Vegetation . The first two can grab lands like Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket , while the last allows you to grab multiple basics. Another great one is Tempt with Discovery .

Cards like Dragon Broodmother are nice, but Balefire Dragon and Skyline Despot are significantly better imo.

Asceticism and Archetype of Endurance provide excellent protection from more casting based decks, and Heroic Intervention will give it to you at instant speed.

Regal Behemoth will give you access to another double mana source

Chromatic Lantern will also give you both mana fixing and further ramp.

Finally, check out Exploration and Burgeoning . Exploration is a little more expensive but Burgeoning is a little cheaper and fantastic.

There are a ton of other things you might like if you check out my deck list.

Good luck Gaming!

Vlasiax on Shiny MTG The Ur Dragon, LOTS OF FOILS!

Hello, have you considered adding some low-curve Dragons like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Glorybringer or Thunderbreak Regent ? I just feel that lowering the average CMC would feel amazing to play.

Also since you have some token strategies how about Nesting Dragon and Dragon Broodmother ? They can really flood the board and Devouring Egg tokens actually upgrades them so you don't lose anything.

urchinpriests on The Ur-Dragon

Removing the following, some I may re-add when I get them, others would just be better as legit mana sources

High CMC, non-dragon

Zirilan of the Claw -> Boros Signet

Low impact, non-dragon

Dragon Whisperer -> Golgari Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonspeaker Shaman -> Gruul Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonlord's Servant -> Izzet Signet

A little pricey ($), might be more durable as a signet anyway

Sarkhan, Fireblood -> Rakdos Signet

Need colored mana

Homeward Path -> Mountain

Just forgot to order him

Dragonlord Kolaghan -> Dragon Broodmother

BenniPe on ETB Dragons

4 months ago

Thanks for the suggstions Spairut . Hornet Nest and Frontier Siege are no options for me as they are green and no dragons. The only reason I included some Forest in my Manabase is Cindervines , which is currently my only idea to handle opponents enchantments. Surely not my definite solution.. I donĀ“t need forests for the Dragon Broodmother as there are 6 lands who can produce any kind of mana for dragon spells and 4x Dragon's Hoard .

I know there are a few nice green dragon related cards, but there are more downsides than upsides in switching from a basically red manabase to R/G, when focusing on the ETB effects. In contrast, I thought about switching a bit more to B/R and replace Draconic Roar with Thoughtseize ... For ramp I tried Dragonspeaker Shaman , Dragonlord's Servant or the universal Urza's Incubator . But in the end I replaced them one after another with Dragon's Hoard , as it is a manaramp for all kinds of spells, and an additional card draw for every dragon entering the battlefield. Dragon Egg is just much more effective in this deck then Hornet Nest , as it allows to trigger etb effects two times.

My current Idea is to replace one Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip main and one Chandra, Torch of Defiance main with Metallic Mimic each. This is because I often find myself in situations were I would rather draw a dragon than a Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip was often underwhelming. Metallic Mimic would be a great 2 drop dragon with benefits for all other creatures in the deck, as there are no non-dragons.
