Hawk Red/Black Tribal Dragon Deck

So earlier I was playing Commander with a friend of mine and I found out that I need card draw in my deck! I need suggestions for them!

We played 2 games, I got mana flooded in my first game and in the second game I was top-decking early game!

I only have 2 cards that are card draw in my deck, they are Dragon Mage which the downside is that I have to be able to do damage to my opponent, and the other one is Skyline Despot and the downside of Skyline Despot is that I have to be the Monarch to get the draw which is at my end step!

I need Red Card Draw, Black Card Draw, both Red & Black Card Draw, or Colorless Card as I'm not changing the colors of this deck.

Spell_Slam on Rakdos, Lord of riots Budget build

Great choice for a budget!

Piranha Marsh is a suprisingly effective land. I'm often very happy to play this on turn 5 to get Rakdos out.

Insolent Neonate is also surprisngly effective as an enabler with Menace. Being able to use him as card draw later is a big bonus.

Duplicant is .75 cents. That should be cheap enough to make your budget, right? It's removal and potentially another fatty that can be very cheap with Rakdos.

Knollspine Dragon is 1.28, but being able to draw tons of cards after an attack is brutal.

Steel Hellkite is .99 cents. Definitely worth an include.

Increasing Ambition is 1.26, which is pretty cheap for a good tutor.

Dragon Mage hits hard and wheels you into more fatties. .20 cents.

Demonlord Belzenlok is 1$ can has a pretty good chance of drawing you a lot of cards.

Pestilence Demon is freakin' awesome. .48 cents.

When Sire Of Insanity gets out early, the game usually ends. .67 cents.

Gorgon's Head doesn't make much sense here since most of your pingers don't hit creatures.

Staff of Nin is cool, but just way too expensive on mana to be worth it.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance seems pretty weak. You don't want your enablers at 4 mana, usually.

Morgue Burst is really expensive. It just doesn't seem worth it.

Tectonic Giant could easily be cut.

Since a lot of the budget mana rocks are 3 mana, maybe you should look into more 2 mana or less pingers, so that you can get to your Rakdos on turn 4 more often.

Two words: Dragon Mage.

Wheel on a creature. Let's you fill your yard better while giving you a fresh hand. Literally zero reason to not have it in here.

lupin5th on Zurzoth, Devil Commander

Runehorn Hellkite, Dragon Mage, Stalking Vengeance are some good non-devil creatures that work well with him. You'd also want Temple Bell in the deck if you're going to be sacrificing creatures Mass Mutiny, Mob Rule are good options, enchantment burn options that aren't the god of the forge, Impact Tremors, Warstorm Surge, Vicious Shadows.

Kravv, Lord of Immolation

Legendary Creature - Giant Dragon

Kravv can't be countered if you control three or more other Dragons.

Kravv costs less for each Dragon you control.

: Red Creatures you control get +1/+0 and haste until end of turn.

Exile three red cards from your hand: Untap all creatures you control. After this combat phase, there is an additional combat phase.

TypicalTimmy on Brainstorm: best sets of Custom ...

I try to find cards that fulfill multiple functions. Some are very easy to spot, for example Arterial Flow by itself is a powerful discard effect. In EDH, it is one of the most powerful.

It costs you 1 card to get 6 cards, (2 from each opponent) into the graveyards.

Then it can also hit for 2 life on each opponent if you have a Vampire. So, it functions as a "burn" spell, too. But it also gives you +2 life, meaning it gives you a 4-point spread between each opponent. That is to say, the gap between you and your opponent is widened by 4 life, and that's to all three of them.

In my Lathliss deck, I run a gambit of Dragons who deal non-combat damage in some capacity, such as Glorybringer and Balefire Dragon.

These are not just big creatures with evasion, they are also the equivalent of burn spells.

Another example is Dragon Mage, who effectively is a draw engine.

My new deck is run by Oros, the Avenger, who with Deathtouch becomes a wrath on a stick.

So I prefer cards with multiple functions, even if they aren't directly noticable. I try for at least 2 functions per card, if at ever able.
