. 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!

Thanks to everyone that commented for the great feedback.

There are a number of cards mentioned that are already on my acquire list that I want for the deck that I just didn't have handy because they are already in my Scion/Ur-Dragon deck or others. This includes Illusionist's Bracers , Flameshadow Conjuring , Dragonmaster Outcast , Thousand-Year Elixir , Dragon Tyrant , High Market and Tel-Jilad Stylus . I should have included a 'too acquire' list.

There are some cards I cut from my first draft simply do to overall mana curve. I always build my decks too high and so I deliberately go back and reassess everything 6 CMC and up. I found this to be the case when I cut Dragon Mage , Utvara Hellkite , and Scourge of Valkas (avoiding 3 colored in the casting cost...I know, I know, it's a mono deck, but I still find away to get locked there somehow). I also did find Scourge of Valkas meeting my 'answers' need when it was tutored, but I can see @TypicalTimmy's combo as fun shenanigans, so I might need to make room for them.

As for rocks, I had trimmed both Fellwar Stone and Ruby Medallion because I went more on utility in other areas. The same sort of went for Dragon's Hoard . i'd be interested in suggestion on what to cut for any of these. I did leave both Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower deliberately out as the deck just never puts you in that position to need them.

The honest answer on the City of Brass , Command Tower , Mana Confluence , Path of Ancestry , and Reflecting Pool is I ran out of the unhinged mountains I wanted to use and need to get more :). The command tower was an easy add as it doesn't lose much aside from being affected by anything that targets non-basic lands. The Path of Ancestry was because I wanted the advantage of the scry and then the ping lands were because I need more unhinged mountains.

I had Gamble in the deck, but cut it in favor of others. Suggestions on what to pull out for it?

Chaos Warp is in the deck.

Hey, Dragon Tempest , Utvara Hellkite and Dragonmaster Outcast are among the best Dragon themed cards to play. Tempest is more ways to give Dragons haste including Zirilan as well do some damage to opponent or creature when you cheat Dragons into play. Utvara should always be your first Dragon to search for with Zirilan since haste means she will create a 6/6 Dragon when she attacks. Dragonmaster is good in multiplayer Commander because he's a possible repeatable source of Dragons. Utvrara and Dragonmaster are busted with Tempest.

Consider Gamble and Chaos Warp ? They're staple red cards since their effects are not something that traditionally red has access to (unconditional tutor and enchantment removal). More two drop mana rocks are helpful for ramp since Kirilan requires a lot of mana to get going. The two drop mana rocks you play don't have to make red mana since making red mana will not be a problem with so many Mountains. The mana rocks just need to create mana for ramp and in my opinion consider a lot of mana rocks? Mind Stone , Fellwar Stone , Thought Vessel , Ruby Medallion , Dragon's Hoard , Everflowing Chalice , Prismatic Lens ? Ashnod's Altar lets you make mana by sacing a Dragon or token copy before your end step, if it's going to die anyway might as well make some mana.

Thousand-Year Elixir can also give Zirilan haste as well as untap him to potentially use his ability another time during your turn or during an opponents turn. Tel-Jilad Stylus is helpful to put a Dragon back into your library after it attacks so it's not saced EOT. Dragon Mage is a very good Dragon when it has haste because red lacks many draw options and Mage is repeatable draw each time it hits an opponent. Dragon Tyrant is good when it has haste, hitting for 12 flying/trample damage.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey hkhssweiss, if you're still looking for a good janky Monored Commander, I recommend Feldon of the Third Path . Use his ability in order to spam creatures with high power and solid ETB abilities, without worrying about a Counterspell. Typical picks are Molten Primordial , Bogardan Hellkite , Tyrant of Discord , Dragon Tyrant , Rapacious One , Pathrazer of Ulamog , and It That Betrays .

Instants and Sorceries like Faithless Looting , Cathartic Reunion , Dangerous Wager , Khorvath's Fury , Collective Defiance , Pirate's Pillage , and Shattered Perception let you put these biggies into your graveyard for early game Feldon recursion. Orbs of Warding can help protect your graveyard from removal.

Other notables are Petradon (exile your tapped lands, return them untapped at end step) and Avaricious Dragon (use when you want to dump your hand into the grave, activate Feldon at upkeep to draw an extra card). There are lots of fun tricks you can do with Feldon.
