Dragonlord Kolaghan Discussion

WhichKing on Help me make the cut ...

3 days ago

I would replace Tyrant's Familiar. It's frankly lackluster without your commander out, and you are quite unlikely to have both out. I would also recommend you make space for Dragonlord Kolaghan and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. One is a aggressively costed haste outlet and the other pumps your dragons up. You can cut both Dragonlord Silumgar and probably Boneyard Scourge.

The bulk of your dragons are 5 drops with the Ur-dragon cost reduction. In that sense I would cut Dreamstone Hedron, Gilded Lotus, Mirrari's Wake. You can replace them with cheaper ramp spells like signets and talismans to get you casting your dragons more quickly.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions and the upvotes!

@Atuva: Yeah, Enter the Infinite + Omniscience would be an instant win in the deck. I won't include it while testing, but it should be in a final version, I think.

@Atuva and SirSh4ggy: Ramos, Dragon Engine has high upside if its ability gets going, but he will be too slow in the deck without further support, I expect. That's because there are relatively few multicolored spells and the cmc of the deck is rather high (even with the alternative cost from Jodah). And I don't want to put cards like Doubling Season in the deck only for Ramos. It would be great if somebody pointed out a way to include Ramos, Dragon Engine into the Grozoth combo (searching him out with Dragonstorm wouldn't do much yet).

@SirSh4ggy: Maelstrom Wanderer doesn't hit most of the powerhouses in the deck, so I didn't include it, but Unexpected Results seems cool because it either ramps or has a chance on hitting the powerhouses (and I play few counterspells) - cool addition!

Quicksilver Amulet and company won't let me use the cast triggers of my creatures, so they're not optimal. But Defense of the Heart is a tutor at least and can search something like Dragonlord Kolaghan + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre which is nice. And Elvish Piper could maybe replace Myojin of Life's Web.

@Spoosky: Akroma's Memorial is a good idea! A lot of my creatures have no evasion at all and this will give them all kinds of evasion. If testing shows that my threat density is more than enough, then I'll try to find room for the memorial.

If casting Dragonstorm is on the table, Dragonlord Kolaghan should be considered. You have plenty of ways to grant haste, but one that can be tutored for exactly when you need it is always nice.

Looking good so far!

I agree with ButterMyBiscuit that Vandalblast and Merciless Eviction are excellent upgrades for this deck. I like the idea of Land Tax and Lurking Predators. I might just borrow those.

Some things I would potentially take away:

  • Ramos, Dragon Engine is a good card, but has more synergy in other decks than here.
  • O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami because it is very conditional to go off.
  • Scourge of Valkas has potential but is also pretty situational. My play group is very board wipe heavy so I never seemed to get much use out of this, though your situation may be different.

Potential adds:

colton815 on 5 color Dragons?

1 month ago

use scion as your commander so that you can toolbox while also loading up the grave for Patriarch's Bidding. make sure Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund or Dragonlord Kolaghan are among the dragons you revive to swing with haste.

magicsheep on Bypass the Mana Cost & Skip to the Fun Part

Might want to look at replacing Master of Cruelties because it can only attack alone. Not sure if that would cause problems?

To replace it, Dragonlord Kolaghan gives all your creatures haste, as suggested by Suns_Champion. It's also a powerful dragon that fits your color scheme.

Great deck KINGofORESKOS!

Jaysterbaby on Need help structuring a Dragon ...

I don't have a format in mind as me and my friends just play for fun. If I have to tweak it for formats I can do that on my own time. I just need help tweaking this deck, as I believe 80 cards to be alot even with great mana ramps, I will be going up against Merfolk with unblockable and buffs, and vampires with lifedrain, life link and deathtouch, with some flying

Suggestions and opinions welcome. Thank you
