Dragon Throne of Tarkir Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Xenagos, God of Combat

1 day ago

Aggravated Assault interacts nicely with Savage Ventmaw due to infinite combat phases, if you're willing to dish out the money for it.

One janky combo I ran in my Xenagos EDH was Dragon Throne of Tarkir + some big creature like Heroes' Bane or Primordial Hydra (You don't have to run either of these two, any heavy hitter will do). Sure, it turns into a doorstop, but that's the least of your opponents' concerns.

Malignus is a really, really punishing hitter (despite the lack of trample), especially in Xenagod EDH.

Deus of Calamity can be used as a heavy hitter and as land destruction.

Domri Rade is one of the best heavy hitter support planeswalkers in Gruul due to his emblem.

I do like the idea of Command Beacon, and I've been considering going up to 36 lands for a while. Probably in the next update I'll cut something for that, since it seems like a great effect to have, especially on a land.


Currently I'm running Hornet Queen over Avenger of Zendikar because I don't have all that many fliers, so getting 5 flying blockers could be very relevant. However, I haven't been seeing as many dragon decks in my meta lately, so I could see making the swap.

I'm not a huge fan of Wild Beastmaster, since it doesn't give trample, and honestly I don't actually have that many creatures out most of the time. I could see running Pathbreaker Ibex because it gives trample, but for now I'm sticking with Dragon Throne of Tarkir because it can pump your team the turn you play it (although it takes a ton of mana).

I like the idea of Sekki, Seasons' Guide in theory, but I feel like in practice it would just leave too many decisions up to my opponents, and after they durdle around not letting it make that many tokens, just die to a board wipe. If anything, I think I would run Pentavus as another expensive token generator.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest was in a previous version of the deck, and didn't do enough in my opinion. Since then, I have cut even more token generators, so I think it isn't quite good enough.

Unfortunately, Sakashima the Impostor is a bit out of my price range, and even if it was, I feel like developing an extra Ezuri would just be a huge overextension. If anything, I might consider running Vizier of Many Faces as my clone effect, simply because I have it on hand.

I really like your suggestions on things to cut. Praetor's Counsel feels like it just costs too much mana for what it does, and Magus of the Library definitely is clunky a lot of the time. Maybe if the magus had a slightly easier cost I would consider keeping it in. Those two will definitely be coming out of the deck in a future update. I do, however, think that Tezzeret's Gambit is worth it. The card draw is helpful, and I feel that proliferating is very powerful. Until I find another decent piece of card draw or two, I think it will stay in to help with that aspect of the deck.

DrukenReaps on Who are you most excited ...

3 of them kinda have my attention:

I've started theorizing on hallar with One Hallar Of A Kicker.

I'm not sure about it yet. It seems really cool but I think I'm going to need more kicker cards that feel good in commander. A bunch of them just feel like over costed garbage...

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame (https://scryfall.com/card/dom/XVKOF)- Interesting to me at least but what I really want before building this is more equipment like Dragon Throne of Tarkir. If anyone has suggestions for things like that I'm all eyes.

Torgaar, Famine Incarnate (https://scryfall.com/card/dom/XTFI)- He feels really cool. Black tokens, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Grave Pact. My goal would be to always pay for him. I do like the idea of being a little political with him too if someone is below half life I can bring them back up.

dude you need Curiosity for niv-mizzet it creates a controlled infinite loop. also think about Dragon Throne of Tarkir combined with Empyrial Plate if you put them on your commander and tap for dragon thrones ability all your tokens will be as big as your hand with haste, flying and trample.

The biggest weakness of the Red-White decks in commander is card draw, those are the colours who draw the least. Commander (assuming you play multiplayer) isn't a sprint race, it's a marathon, If you run out of cards or you're the guy that's only geting one card each turn, you are going to lose.
You have to get several artifacts that can help you with that. Ghirapur Orrery is a good and cheap one, Staff of Nin another budget option, Culling Dais because sacrifice outlets are also good, The Immortal Sun is a bit more expensive but really good, Loreseeker's Stone, Oracle's Vault.
Some equipments Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Skullclamp, Infiltration Lens.
In red you have access to "impulsive draw", you exile the top cad of your library and then you may use it until end of turn. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Stromkirk Occultist, Outpost Siege, Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip Etali, Primal Storm.
And also Wheel of Fortune effects: cheaper options are Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Reforge the Soul, Runehorn Hellkite, Dragon Mage and Knollspine Dragon.
About 8 to 12 of the lower cost ones is a good number to have in you deck so you consistently refill your hand.

You may also want to power up your guys, otherwise they will be hitting like a wet noodle. More options for your deck are Cathars' Crusade, Dictate of Heliod, Call for Unity and if you end up with many artifacts in your deck you can also have Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer. Dragon Throne of Tarkir is a bit bad because it's quite expensive to use (nine mana until you finally use it for the first time and your bigger creature wont be attacking) but maybe is worth giving it a try.

Now you decided to go wide with you creatures, some tokens may help you: Assemble the Legion is a no brainer, Huatli, Warrior Poet is quite affordable at the moment (for a Planeswalker), she pops dinosaurs and can help your guys get though.

Some instants to save your guys from board wipes: Boros Charm definitely a must, other options are Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses. If you have many "When enters the battlefield" creatures or your opponents usually play board wipes that don't just destroy or deal damage to the creatures, then Ghostway and Eerie Interlude may be what you need.

elgosu1337 on Noyan Dar - Budget Commander

Yeah green would be perfect for Noyan Dar with all the land synergies and Sylvan Advocate.

For what it's worth this deck inspired me to brew a Noyan Dar deck as well, featuring Dovescape and Guile and Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Do take a look if that sounds interesting.

golgariizzet on Locust God - Draw their death

you need Curiosity in there it makes niv-mizzet firemind go infinite another thing to think about is Dragon Throne of Tarkir with Empyrial Plate on your commander then pay the 2 and tap your commander and all your 1/1's with haste are now as big as your hand.

elgosu1337 on Jarad, Lord of Lichtenstein

3 weeks ago

Looks good, would you consider Sheoldred, Whispering One and/or Meren of Clan Nel Toth? Cauldron of Souls could provide redundancy for Mikaeus and combo with him as well. Since Jarad gets quite big you could also go more voltron with Nylea, God of the Hunt, Loxodon Warhammer, or Dragon Throne of Tarkir for trample.
