Dragon Broodmother

Creature — Dragon


At the beginning of each upkeep, put a 1/1 red and green Dragon creature token with flying and devour 2 onto the battlefield. (As the token enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. It enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)

Dragon Broodmother Discussion

MegaMatt13 on Who needs a Scion, when Ur-the Dragon?!

Really like your deck! :)

I have 2 dragons to suggest that both put in a lot of work in my version:

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury: The power boost he gives to each dragon for each dragon attacking is insane. The dash ability is nice when using him and his anthem effect as a finisher.

Dragon Broodmother: Similar to Scourge of Valkas, the triple red casting cost is a bit gross, but she performs really well. Her dragon tokens during every player's upkeep combos well with Dragon Tempest, Scourge of Valkas, Kindred Discovery, Utvara Hellkite, and all the Fate Reforged "whenever a dragon attacks". She also just provides chump blockers to help buffer against retaliation strikes.

In terms of what to cut...perhaps Skyline Despot? You're running enough other card draw and giving yourself the monarchy just gives people an extra reason to attack you. Is it worth the 7 drop spot? Also , maybe Karrthus as others have suggested. I'd be scared of some black deck killing him and then reanimating him stealing all your dragons! That may be more of a concern depending on meta. My meta loves graveyard shenanigans like that.

My version if you're interested: The Ur Dragon's Raging Rainbow Friends

@MegaMatt13: Hey there Matt. Glad you enjoy reading my dissertations. I am also glad that you agree with the servants removal. I just think for what he does, it just seems lackluster and having a dork that can make mana for any spell is much more relevant. Selvala's Stampede is game winning when played on turn 3. Also yes, I played Selvala's Stampede on turn 3 in a game. It got me my Deathrite Shaman, Hellkite Tyrant(who proceeded to steal my opponents Chromatic Lantern), and a Savage Ventmaw. The ramp that game was so good. Nobody caught up and my dragons just ate everything.

One reason why I didn't add Dragon Broodmother is because I don't own her and the fact that she costs 3 red and 1 green as a requirement scares me a little, but I understand why one puts her in. She is good, however, another card I have considered was Skyline Despot. Become the monarch and make tokens if you keep the monarch, seem pretty decent.

I have also consider Phyrexian Arena, which when combined with Sunscorch Regent, basically kills off the negative side effect of the arena. I also really want to add back in Herald’s Horn. The discount and potential card draw is nice, have there been times it has whiffed, yes it has, but it still does its job well. No clue where to put it right now. I personally like Herald’s Horn over Dragonspeaker Shaman but I can understand the dispute that is coming from this. I really think I prefer cost reduction spells to be in form of enchantments and artifacts instead of creatures.

Looks fun! +1 from me

I like the Tooth and Claw combos; that's not something you see every day. Evolutionary Leap is a neat idea too.

Greater Good, Life's Legacy and Momentous Fall could go with the sac theme and help refill your hand. Five cards for 2-4 mana is very strong

I tried Dragon Broodmother and a few others, but they came out to better streamline the deck. It's hard to choose what number of fatties to run with so much ramp. I hate getting stuck early game with a high cmc hand when I just want omnath out asap

Keep up the good work! Kill everything not gruul! Hopefully you'll swing by my deck and give it a look too. (LINK) Cheers!

Hey, I'm back again.

I'd remove Temur Runemark and add more Crucible of Fire since it gives greater benefit. Also better trample include - Rancor and Archetype of Aggression.

I'd remove the Sword of Light and Shadow and Domri Rade, again just to make space for copies of better key cards.

Add more removal, because it will save you while you set-up your army. Maybe change Flame Slash to Abrade to also remove artifacts, and weaker early game creatures. Add more Draconic Roar ;)

As for your Dragons, I think it's best you go for 4 Utvara Hellkite since I think you're going for the token gimmick with Parallel Lives. I would also add more Dragonmaster Outcast. Another suggestion for tokens would be Dragon Broodmother, for ya know, token making speed.

So you need creature space now huh? I would remove the other dragons, that don't fit quite well with the token gimmick. This includes: Dragonlord Atarka,Glorybringer,Mirrorwing Dragon,Moonveil Dragon,Rimescale Dragon, and Skyship Stalker.

I hope I didn't distance too far from your original mechanic in this deck, and I hope it wasn't too much to digest. If I had the cash, I too would play a dope dragon deck.

Dragon Broodmother should fit well in the deck.

The dragon lords.. Dragonlord Dromoka, etc

@MegaMatt13: Hey MegaMatt13. I am actually also very curious how it fully runs and in my play testing, it seems to do really well and I do really like that cost reduction for the dragons. I just wish that I could play it right now, but I should be able to play it soon. I currently live in Texas and so hurricane Harvey has put a damper on my play time for this deck. All of my commander 2017 stuff came the day before the mail was cancelled from the storm. Also, on another note, no my house has not flooded and my family is alright. On another note, I do not own a Dragon Broodmother so I can't add that one just yet but it looks like it might be good for getting those Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas triggers. I love how Wasitora, Nekoru Queen looks and just haven't put her in. I feel that O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami is a huge deterrent, especially if you can give it double strike so that you can remove two permanents. The Hellkite Charger has been looking towards my cut line just because of the fact it costs lots of mana to use its extra battle effect. Especially since I already have Scourge of the Throne and Aggravated Assault.

Just curious about how your experience playing the deck has been?

My experience is that I've been pleasantly surprised with how quickly it can function. The Ur-Dragon's mana reduction helps out A LOT. It's also been very synergistic as a lot of dragons have abilities that benefit each other. On that note...I'd like to advocate for including Wasitora, Nekoru Queen and Dragon Broodmother. The Fate Reforged dragons as well as Scourge of Valkas, Utvara Hellkite, and Dragon Tempest all benefit from having more dragons on the field. I've found the tokens that Wasitora and Broodmother produce to be very helpful with these effects.

How have Hellkite Charger and O-Kagachi been working for you? They are dragons that (so far) haven't made the cut for me, but I'm curious how they perform for you.
