foyle99 on Silumgar the drifting board control

I'm curious as to why you chose Silumgar, the Drifting Death as your commander. Yes, it's a great card, but for the most part you won't have enough dragons to really make it worth him being your commander. If you like Silumgar, I'd recommend switching to Dragonlord Silumgar. He just works better with your deck theme in my mind.

Also, I find that Doom Blade and Go for the Throat are black EDH staples.

You need to upgrade a lot :)

Dragon deck is a slow deck.

You need to handle early game threat. Add more removal/mass removal. Preferably permanent removal than specific type removal. You are in 5 color deck, have all access the best permanent removal such as Anguished Unmaking Utter End Vindicate Song of the Dryads Merciless Eviction they are pretty cheap in price. Rather than inserting Swords to Plowshares

Ramp mana fast and efficiently, you're in 5 color deck. Add more creature that boost your mana and can help you survive early game by chump block with it. Add more mana rocks that can fix colors.

Take out all dragon that don't have immediate effect. Dragonlord are good but not all worth it. Dragonlord Silumgar n Dragonlord Dromoka is the best. Take out Crucible of Fire. Really? your creature is huge and flying, better give the slot to another card.

Cheat some dragon out, not to manually cast it. Quicksilver Amulet Dragon Arch Pattern of Rebirth etc

Add more drawer for card advantage.

Add some combo to stealing game :)

Dakra Mystic and Hedron Crab would be good turn 1 plays to get the mill ball rolling. Jace's Erasure and Sphinx's Tutelage are also good cards to fill up opponent's graveyards.

I love the deck idea! I have been flirting with a similar idea with Dragonlord Silumgar at the helm.

Cool theme - I love milkshake decks.

Have you tested with something like Pull from Tomorrow to complement Sphinx's Revelation?

Beacon of Unrest might be fun to include here, and I wonder if Keiga, the Tide Star might be helpful, too. This list also makes me think of Dragonlord Silumgar, Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Hostage Taker.

Have fun playing!

PG7m on Frontier BUG suggestions

With all the free to play online Frontier leagues going on I really want to build a Sultai(BUG) list. My problem is that there seems to be too many ways to go with it and I need some smarter people than me to help me out with a direction and some card recommendations.

I like card advantage; Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Champion of Wits, etc.

I like car-jacking; Hostage Taker, The Scarab God, Dragonlord Silumgar, etc.

Toolbox; Chord of Calling, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Eldritch Evolution.

Delirium is always sweet; Grim Flayer, Emrakul, the Promised End, etc.

Dredge, Control, Emerge, Energy, there are so many ways to go with so many great cards/options I get lost.

Permission and removal seem great in these colors plus BUG has possibly most of the best cards in the format. I think the mana base might be holding it back a bit.

I was thinking of some sort of aggressive midrange-y base that could transform to more of a controlling list post board.

Would love any help you can offer from cards to packages to entire lists.

Thanks in advance fam.


After some playing and testing I've sort of landed in this deck that is sort of aggressive and somewhat combo-y. I would love to hear any/all suggestions. Thanks.

vbfabled on What Tribe/Creature Type Should Be ...

I'm actually going to post an answer this time around, I haven't done that in quite some time.

I would try to find a new angle to incorporate Hydras with. They may be able to do something similar to what they did with dragons where there are your vicious monstrous dragons (Hellkite Igniter, Scourge of Valkas, etc.), but there are also intelligent, sentient dragons (Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Dragonlord Ojutai, Dragonlord Silumgar, etc.), and have a single hydra or group of hydras that are intelligent or sentient. This could be harder, as dragons throughout literature have had this sort of rendition for a good long while (see Smaug), but hydras have always been seen as giant unthinking monsters.

Another possibility is to have a group of humanoid or otherwise sentient characters that use hydras to fight their enemies.

Example: A small kingdom of highly intelligent Sphinxes learn to use mind magic to tame and command Hydras and use their unmatched power to conquer a plane.

What do you guys think?

Wait I made a mistake, I was thinking about Sultai and not Temur when I suggested Dragonlord Silumgar. I'm sorry.
