Dragon Tyrant Discussion

Fuzzlewuzzle on I Am Fire, I Am Death

I tried out Deathbringer Regent a long, long time ago and really wasn't impressed. If he was an ETB trigger instead of a cast trigger I'd like him a lot more, but as it is there's much better things the deck could be doing for 7 mana. Like you said, Necromantic Selection is a way more useful choice (I used to run that too, but ended up cutting it because IMO 7 mana is just too much mana for a boardwipe. I don't like paying more than 5 for that kind of effect.)

Flameshadow Conjuring is awesome. Doubling your ramp with sad robot feels great, doubling Scourge of Valkas, Dragon Tyrant, or Utvara Hellkite can lead to a lot of damage, and doubling Meteor Golem is fantastic spot removal, especially when you're using chainer or sheoldred to recur the golem each turn. And if nobody removes it, you can just go infinite with bladewing and kill the table outright. Admittedly, if I am tapping out to cast something, missing out on being able to pay the cost to activate Flameshadow kinda sucks, but I don't think I could ever run the deck without it.

Heres some suggestions:

Skyshroud Claim or Kodama's Reach might be better than Khalni Heart Expedition .

Also Counterspell over Disdainful Stroke .

Wrath of God , Toxic Deluge , Kindred Dominance and Crux of Fate are some good board wipes to concider.

Double strike is very powerful with Scion, so Dragon Tyrant and Rafiq of the Many will work wonders.

Hey awsome deck i have been heavily playtesting my zirilan deck as well ( Dragon Rain), ive leaned a little more into the dragon storm theme, but some cards you might consider ive had great luck with Lathliss, Dragon Queen is great to pull at your oponents end step, then pull utvara swing for at least 11 and have 3 dragons on the field, and pair that with an early Dragon Tempest and you out right win sometimes. Gratuitous Violence is almost overpowered in this deck, even more insane with Dragon Tyrant , amazing results. Ive also enjoyed , Synod Sanctum , Safe Haven , Chaos Moon , and many others feel free to look at my deck for more, this one gets a +1 from me though

. Take out Elvish Mystic for Oracle of Mul Daya . Seedborn Muse and Vedalken Orrery is a self constructed Prophet of Kruphix . Take out Farseek for Traverse the Outlands , and also add Zendikar Resurgent and take out Madcap Skills , Dragon Tyrant by itself is very powerful and practically removal. Take out Farhaven Elf for Crash of Rhino Beetles or Utvara Hellkite . I suggest cutting 2 or 3 more creatures for Artifact Ramp. Honestly there are so many good creatures with Xenagos, God of Revels it doesn’t completely matter, and you should decide how you make it, but these are just some suggestions.

Drakorya Thanks so much for the feedback, these are all my paper decks and funnily enough, Dragon Mage and Hellkite Tyrant are in my Kaalia of the Vast deck. Balefire Dragon has been on my buy list for ages, so not available. Hellkite Charger unfortunately I wouldn't get to use the ability because It's already declared as attacking if I cheat it in off Ilharg's attack. I know, Its a bit weird, but its the same reason there are no annihilator Eldrazi in the deck. Thanks for your feedback though because Dragon Tyrant is EXACTLY the type of stupidity I want to drop out with the spicy pork chop! Thanks for your input!

I think some of the mono-red beaters usually found in Kaalia of the Vast decks could fit in here. Cards like:

Balefire Dragon - Wrath opponents board

Dragon Mage - Refuel your hand (and possibly disrupt opponents hands)

Dragon Tyrant - Big beatstick

Hellkite Tyrant - Only if your opponents tend to play artifacts

Hellkite Charger - Extra attack steps (and can combo with Sword of Feast and Famine )

You might be able to use more protection for Ilharg too, so maybe Darksteel Plate and Lightning Greaves , and Godo, Bandit Warlord to tutor for them?

Have you taken a look at Dragon Tyrant ? No interesting ETB abilities, but he's got a ton of face-eating-ness, especially if you have some spare mana lying around.

This looks really sweet! Zirilian is a general who I don’t think sees enough play. Crucible of Fire seems like it plays well with your dragons, and you might want to consider Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir for extra activations. Dragon Tyrant is also sweet to cheat out, and sometimes just kills people. Can’t wait to see what you do with the deck!
