Dragonlord Kolaghan Discussion

colton815 on Should WotC Allow All PW ...

DrukenReaps: there are definitely planeswalkers that could be a 2-card instant win with Doubling Season. for example, Sarkhan Unbroken. use him to pull a Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund and you have a massive army of haste dragons with which to end everybody immediately.

i'd use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as the commander to toolbox whatever effects you need at the time while loading up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding. use it to bring back Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund to give everything haste and attack for game.

use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander to copy whatever effect you need at the time while loading up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding to bring back Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund and a bunch of other dragons for a big haste attack to end the game. it'd also provide a bunch of big Dragon Tempest triggers.

darkvoidz: don't listen to cvarena21989. keep Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander and use it to load up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding. use that combo with Dragonlord Kolaghan, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, or Dragon Tempest to attack for game the same turn with haste. that is, if the damage from Dragon Tempest doesn't kill them first. for example, lets assume you have 0 creatures on the field when you cast Patriarch's Bidding and it puts 5 dragons into play under your control. Dragon Tempest triggers 5 times, for 5 damage per trigger. 25 damage.

JRaynor on Dragonic Domination [UPGRADE HELP]

I'm currently doing something similar with my copy of the pre-con and though I bounce back and forth between Scion and The Ur-Dragon himself, I inevitably lean towards the battle-cruiser style in both builds.

Regarding the mana-base, I've found that focusing primarily on all the "Red" lands works pretty well for me.

Add in Naya Panorama, Grixis Panorama, and Jund Panorama + Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds.

Removing tap lands without a red mode like Arcane Sanctum, Opulent Palace, etc.

This provides numerous opportunities to grab the colors needed to cast all dragons while keeping all the great Fire Breathing dragons relevant.

I also add in all the budget 5 color lands that I can manage - Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade are great. A lot of people look down on them and refuse to use them but like you, I also don't want to spend a mortgage payment on the land base.

Forbidden Orchard is relevant since your flyers don't particularly care about 1/1 grounded tokens, but still is not as budget friendly as the others I've listed so far. Still, better than a lot of the options out there.

Unclaimed Territory is an easy include. Cascading Cataracts is a decent budget way to get your colors in a pinch.

Aside from the mana-base. Haste + Big dragons is great. I skipped Dragonlord Kolaghan for a long time but having finally slotted him into the deck for a test run, he promptly won me a game and I can confirm he's pretty much worth the slot - Being much more budget friendly than Karthas.

Temur Ascendancy is another multi-function haste enabler that's very budget friendly.

Keiga, the Tide Star and the other Kamigawa dragons all just got a reprint and are way better in Ur-Dragon than in Scion.

It's expensive but I'm personally running a Cyclonic Rift. That's an easy one, but there are lots of other great options that synergize with your dragons in the same way Earthquake does. Magmaquake and Molten Disaster are great includes here.

I've won games with Rite of Replication - which is great even in a vacuum since you can target your opponent's creatures. The more Legendary Dragons you run though, the worse it becomes and it's not exactly dirt cheap so your mileage may vary.

Mirage Mirror is a great clone ability to slot in alongside the Mirror of the Forebears.

All right, I have a couple concerns. Looks at my deck Yidris and his Sky Friends for more stuff.

1) one of the Kindred cycle?

2) literally no noncreature removal.

3) are the gods really necessary?

4) Kavu Lair and Temur Ascendancy.

5) maybe Where Ancients Tread and/or Warstorm Surge.

6) why not Ur as the commander, not his scion?

7) Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Numot, the Devastator, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami (though he's pretty cool), Ojutai, Soul of Winter, maybe Orator of Ojutai, and Thundermaw Hellkite are all subpar creatures, at least in this deck (or in general, depending).

8) your deck is very surprising; you aren't very proactive (not very active, in fact) in the early game. Then turn 5-7 you're like surprise! I have the biggest shit on the board. That's one of the things I love most about your deck, and you can capitalize on that by getting haste enablers. Dragonlord Kolaghan is a good one, though it physically hurts me to see a creature's ability go totally unused.

ZendikariWol on Dragonic Dominance

Wait wait... isn't Dragonlord Kolaghan a total dud in singleton? Also Dromoka, the Eternal is a surprisingly large threat. It really comes out of nowhere. He almost made my dragon deck white. Also the kindred cycle, or at least the good ones ( kindred charge , Kindred Summons, Kindred Discovery , and Kindred Dominance) are really good, and I guess Kindred Boon is nothing to sneeze at either. Coat of Arms is immensely powerful, as well.
