Deck looks like it could easily ramp into Dragonlord Atarka or Thundermaw Hellkite. Add Dragonmaster Outcast because it shares Shaman with Wolf-Skull Shaman and can be a real nuisance out of early game.

hi Boza! cool deck you have there :D

helm of the host seems like a cool equipment to try out, a bit costly on the mana maybe. Traxos, on the other hand, i really dislike, since he is just a big beater and doesnt bring any good effects. always watching is something i had in, then switched out for Brave the Sands because it was cheaper cmc wise. then i switched that out for Reconnaissance because its busted as all hell, you can activate it after damage, so al your creatures have vigilance and it protects you from combat tricks or stupid attacks.

when looking at your deck, the first thing i notice is your low amount of lands. do you ever run into mana problems? (maybve its because you still use partial paris mulligans, which we dont). should you run more duals with basic land types like Canopy Vista or Sheltered Thicket you could consider Farseek over rampant growth. also if you run those, Skyshroud Claim will be waaaay better than explosive vegetation.

now if you look at my creatures, you'll notice i dont run any dumb beaters without some sort of valuable ability. in your deck Zurgo Helmsmasher, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Gahiji, Honored One and Dragonlord Atarka come awfully close to that. personaly i would prefer something like Anafenza, the Foremost or Queen Marchesa over them since they bring valuable abilities to the table as well as respectable stats. your creatures being a bit smaller doesnt really matter once you drop saskia and a damage doubler, since they will do tons of damage anyway.

also Urabrask the Hidden is just a straight up upgrade to dragonlord kolaghan. same could be said for Sheoldred, Whispering One and mogis, since i find him really underwhelming. Horn of Greed tends to help my opponents more since this isnt a landfall deck. also if you can afford it, Chromatic Lantern is bonkers.

as for dominaria cards, Urza's Ruinous Blast is a 100% must have. one-sided boardwipes are ridiculous. Marwyn, the Nurturer also seems strong in your deck, since you have quite a few ways of pumping him.

thanks for the comment :D hope i could be of help!

Hi Jacka2813,

Thanks a bunch for your comments and upvote.

Hamletback Goliath is a great idea. What I like most about him, is that he also grows whenever a creature appears on an opponents' side. His most important drawback, is that unless he has support from some sort of trample-enabler, he can be blocked by a 1/1 chump. The deck does contain some of these enablers though. I could even replace a basic land with a Rogue's Passage and make him unblockable that way (as well as a host of other creatures). I'm going to think on this for a bit; also on what I would cut should I decide to add him.

Dragonlord Atarka and Bogardan Hellkite are cool as they sort of double as damage-sorceries. However, I believe the deck currently contains more powerful nukers atm that I'd rather use (Angel of Serenity, Balefire Dragon and the eldrazi's). Still, I'll keep this in mind though in case the deck somehow needs to become more nuke-heavy.

Thanks again.

Cool looking deck, I have a similar style deck but not in commander format, but it runs in a similar style with Elvish Piper

A few creatures you could consider are Hamletback Goliath as he gets bigger with every other creature you play and with the guys in here he could get or retry massive.

My last two suggestions as creatures would be Dragonlord Atarka and Bogardan Hellkite as theyre pretty big and do some decent damage or removal when entering the battlefield.

Thanksl I like the look of the wurm, snapcaster om the other hand is just far to exile endive if I decide to buy the deck.

I get what youre saying about mindcrusher, Ive been thinking about Dragonlord Atarka instead. What do you think?

Gotcha. That makes more sense! Rite of Replication seems amazing. Maybe these would make more sense in your deck:

No problem! I'm good with cuts!

First off, Prophet of Kruphix from the maybeboard is banned. jsyk

So here's 15 cuts!

I'd start with those personally. Good luck!

GeoFromz I like the addition of Dragonlord Dromoka and Dragonlord Atarka I would recommend throwing in the other dragonlords as well, just for pure value. Land base, all of my decks use as few basic lands as possible. Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, with some shock lands and fetch lands will 100% help the color fixing. If you ever want to playtest a deck against one of mine just let me know!
