Dragon Broodmother Discussion

This looks far better; we have a defined theme now and I see some more staples in (dorks). However I'd like to address few likely weak spots.

First thing that got my attention was the relatively high average cmc. This is a casual deck and higher-than-usual avg cmc is to be expected of course. But in my suggestions I'll keep in mind fostering a healthy curve and prioritize low-cmc cards.

  • Dragon Broodmother- this is a neat, but a very slow engine. If the deck works perfectly as intended, there are still cooler options. Plus 6cmc for such slow effect is a lot.

  • Ghoulcaller Gisa - again, neat but slow. At 5cmc there might be better options available to you. First similar thing that comes to mind is Open the Graves which would give you tokens more reliably (being a triggered rather than an activated ability stapled to an enchantment rather than a creature) and that doesn't have summoning sickness.

  • Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip - I'd ask how many Linas do you need per deck but I'm afraid of the answer. Nevertheless, Selvala is covering that field nicely IMHO and this one doesn't cut it in here.

  • Sheoldred, Whispering One - probably the best expensive creature you have. My concern is that in order to get to 7 mana and stay alive long enough for Sheoldred to matter, you must have game in a state where, frankly, SHeoldred isn't much of a factor.

  • Stalking Vengeance seems awfully expensive TBH. That ceiling is something, but IMO it's too greedy.

  • Asceticism - you want your creatures to die, right? YOu just need to keep several important ones alive. At 5 mana you could do better with Autumn's Veil or something along those lines.

  • Vicious Shadows - 7 mana to do something in case you have a removal and an opponent has significant number of cards in hand? You can comfortably throw in a blue moon somewhere in that chain of events...

  • Essence Harvest - goes well with the theme, but ultimately doesn't do much

  • Fungal Sprouting - cute, but the fact that it's useless when you're down makes it a no no in my eyes.

Now some suggestions;

Dragon Broodmother key word each upkeep so if you play a multiplayer game that is each opponents up keep as while

An artifact that can help a dragon deck Urza's Incubator

Cheap helpful one for early casting Dragon Egg Also look at Dragonmaster Outcast I think @SynergyBuild listed most the ones i could think off

Play cards that say "When x happens, make a token" rathar than cards that say "Make x tokens" Examples of what to play: Dragon Broodmother, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, that dude that makes thrulls, and that spider that makes more when your opponents cast spells. Obviosly some of these are not in your colors but they show what I mean.

Also conduit of storms is bad and you should play more of the "Whenever a creature dies, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life."

And where is Nightscape Familiar and Altar of Dementia. Chandra's Ignition is a real game ender

Cool deck! Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper was one of my first EDH decks and its a lot of fun. One of my favorite combos in the deck was Dragon Broodmother and any gravepact effect. On every upkeep you put a dragon into play and sac the one that came in last turn. After one round of the table most people didn't have a board left.

Looking for cards that can help me bring out Dragons for free. So any card that does this sort of thing, really.

I know a small list already, but I was wondering what else there is so I can try to narrow and hone in on the best cards.

Here's what I already know of that do this sort of thing, in one way or another. In no particular order, because I'm lazy.

I'm trying to stay away from graveyard tricks, so please keep those suggestions to a minimum. Thank you.

Cards I know of Show

As I said, I'm trying to stay away from Graveyard tricks but if it is cheap enough and easy to pull off, I guess it works. I'm looking to constantly grow my boardstate every turn, not try and rebuild it from scratch.

Yes I know Dragon Broodmother and Utvara Hellkite will grow the boardstate as well. I plan on including them. I just wanted to know what else I might be missing :)

Thanks! :D
