Dragon Tempest Discussion
1 day ago
Thats why majority of my dragons are low and weak. Makes the Dragon Tempest more useful. Multiples makes the one or 2 dragons per turn more effective. The Koth of the Hammer makes Utvara Hellkite possible as soon as turn 5... I pulled it off a couple of times. Crucible of Fire makes all my weak (and lowcost) into power houses for good defence and offense. I get alot of doubt on it until someone plays me. But thanks for the input i will keep your advice in mind.

Modern does not rotate. So all your cards are still modern legal. That being said, I would personally be tempted to cut Dragon Tempest, and Scourge of Valkas -- or at least greatly reduce the numbers. Effects like that are good for tribes that can spam the board... and dragons just have too high a mana cost to spam. I think 2 of those effects would be fine. Crucible of Fire also seems like overkill. Dragons are bigger than like 85% of creatures you will find in modern. Making them taller when your creatures are already tall just feels win-more. Aspiring to cast Utvara Hellkite also seems optimistic with 24 lands and no real ramp.

i think you should cut 2 nykthos for 2 more cavern of souls. you don't have any low cost cards that require double red to boost your devotion. i would also take out the artifacts for Draconic Roar and Dragon Tempest to give you more removal and speed up the deck. i'd also highly recommend taking out Anger of the Gods if you're running little guys. Crucible of Fire looks good on paper, but in actual practice, you're better off just playing a dragon with that 4 mana. thats mana that could have been spent on Skyship Stalker

You should include a secondary win-con into the deck, the standard Kaalia of the Vast is Crucible of Worlds + Armageddon + Ravages of War + Command Beacon + Strip Mine + Wasteland. Others are Worldgorger Dragon and/or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which is the one I play. It's too hard to deal 40 damage to all 3 players, especially with your board position, it pulls attention of the other decks, even though the others may be driving toward their win-con combos.
Mother of Runes is a nice cheap re-usable protection as well.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is awesome, miss Phyrexia/Innistrad, but she isn't an A/D/D so tough to cast her. She will be too slow, albeit very controlling.
You have Brave the Sands use Angelic Field Marshal spot for something else. Maybe an Exquisite Archangel to hit the reset life button, or a Baneslayer Angel to lifelink who can be cast without Kaalia of the Vast, maybe Angelic Arbiter/Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you like the control aspect, or a Grand Abolisher which protect Kaalia of the Vast during your turn, which especially combos nice with the Haste.
I think Sheoldred, Whispering One again is someone that's not working with your overall game plan. The Praetors are way too awesome, but they are going to be far too slow for what you need to accomplish with Kaalia of the Vasts bar-brawl style of aggro play.
Citadel Siege is a little slow, your guys are already pretty big, not sure it's worth the 1 blocker tap-down.
Really cool, love Kaalia of the Vast, the mana will take a while but slowly work on it. Cheers.

Boogan, thanks for the quick reply! Xenagos, God of Revels has it's uses, but thematically it doesn't fit. On top of that, Sarkhan Vol can steal creatures and create Dragon tokens, so that would give him extra synergy with Dragon Tempest. So overall, he'll be a better fit for the deck. The reasons for including Atarka Monument are 1. It's a Mana rock, and 2. It fits the theme of the deck. That's pretty much it. I can see why targeted removal would be more useful here, but i'd sooner remove Sarkhan's Triumph instead.

Looks pretty good just a few suggestions.
With respect to your mana curve, you don't have much to do turn 1. I'd consider additional mana accelerants. Things like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise can help you get an earlier start on the ramp. Dragonmaster Outcast is also pretty good value
You're a bit light on interaction with your opponents board state. Other than Dragon Tempest if your opponent plays a creature you need to kill you're out of luck. Since tempest requires both the card and a creature to trigger it, you might not be able to kill creatures as efficiently as you would like. Scourge of Valkas works similarly to tempest and might be worth a spot in the deck but also has the same problem of not being able to kill creatures reliably (It definitely pulls its own weight if you have it out alongside Dragon Broodmother though). Lightning Bolt is good at picking off smaller creatures and can even provide the last few points of damage to finish off an opponent.
I think Bow of Nylea can probably come out. The dragons only have deathtouch when attacking. Sine you get a dragon on both your upkeep and your opponent's, you can either spit out a lot quickly or create one big one. Also the bow is legendary so you can only have 1 out at a time. As a 4 of, extra copies will just end up sitting in your hand.

Dragon Tempest is really really good. Gives you haste and the ability to ping tiny flyers, great against tokens, also allows you to get those last few points of damage
