Dragon Broodmother Discussion

Jack-Frost on Thantis, the Warweaver

PlatinumShadow It's a matter of spacing and priorities. Dragon Broodmother is a good card but it's just not good enough. Compared to the other options it just doesn't compare. Dragonlair Spider is similar. While they are good cards, i've found that the little tokens don't actually get any value and there are better cards to put into those slots. Giant Adephage is another great card, but I just don't have anything i'd want to cut from the deck for it.

Sandwurm Convergence honestly isn't as good as it seems. It looks like a fantastic card but i've found that it just draws a lot of hate and doesn't get the value I would hope for. It's takes up an entire turn to cast and very rarely does it last more than a round, if at all.

Regarding Rhythm of the Wild, I purposely didn't add any haste cards in the deck. Since Thantis already forces you to attack each turn, you often end up with few blockers. This gives me the time and options so I won't be forced to attack with creatures I don't want to. I very rarely want to attack immediately with Thantis. He just wants to exist and keep everyone at each others throats, killing their threatening cards and their weak guys they want to protect, while he keeps the life totals balanced and then swoops in for the kill. I just don't really want the haste and if I'm just using it for the +1/+1 counters it's just not worth it to me.

I hope you enjoy the deck and your games go well!

Devour is a super fun mechanic with Atla Palani, Nest Tender. Amplify... not so much. Also, I find it very cool that there's a card that makes devouring tokens (Dragon Broodmother), which can then be buffed by whatever token synergies you might already have in the deck... very cool mechanic overall, glad you saw fit to make an article about it :)

Dragon Broodmother 4$ for the mystery booster one. Best way to go wide with dragons. Get all your on attack and etb triggers to the max! I Love this card!

Rzepkanut on What are the most abusive ...

Syphon Mind and Midnight Clock are far better in multiplayer but not particularly "abusive". Ward of Bones and Land Equilibrium can be crazy harsh in a big game vs a small one and they tend to feel a bit more "abusive". Edric, Spymaster of Trest also really shoots up in power level with multiple opponents. Unwinding Clock is basically a colorless Seedborn Muse, its super busted. Disrupt Decorum is a hell of a party that doesn't even work in 1v1. A known Constant Mists can do wonders in hand, as nobody will want to waste an attack on you. Arachnogenesis and Comeuppance are similar, if they are suspected responses to attacks you may start being left alone in the game until someone has a counterspell for you. Dragon Broodmother, and a few other cards trigger token making on each player's turn, maybe not super abusive but still much better in multi than in a 1v1 game. Mind's Eye can be quite strong as well, especially with Smothering Tithe!!

Thank you so much for the input! I was definitely wondering about ramp and card-draw, but I supposed I was a bit distracted by using artifacts to cheat a bit. Perhaps maybe too risky, since they're susceptible to removal? Definitely going to add Dragon Broodmother--I didn't quite recognize its synergy with the rest of the deck.

Dragon Broodmother is just insane. You get so many attack triggers and Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas triggers. The mystery booster version is like 4$. Definitely worth a pickup. Also Living Death can be a game-winning card. Blow up your enemies and revive a dragon army! I also recommend some land ramp, Cultivate, Farseek,Rampant Growth, and Wayfarer's Bauble can provide ramp and fixing. You seem to be running heavy removal with fewer ramp cards. Ramp is vital in a dragon deck as is card-draw. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner,Elemental Bond, and Knollspine Dragon are pretty budget. Dragons are scary and expensive, so safe ramp (land ramp) and card draw are really helpful to keep your board presence.

Dragon Broodmother for flavor and power (the mystery booster version is 4$ for budget concerns)
