Dragonlord Silumgar Discussion

Bloodchief Ascension is a strong card to consider. In multiplayer, it is fairly easy to get the required number of counters. On its own, it helps keep you afloat if you have aggressive opponents. It also has the added advantage of going infinite with Mindcrank.
I think this deck is a bit heavy on large, powerful creatures. That's not really what Phenax wants. Dragonlord Silumgar, Hostage Taker, Sire of Stagnation do not really fit with your general strategy. Kami of the Crescent Moon is a bad card--it provides your opponents cards before you get any extra, and, even then, you're giving away 3+ cards for each 1 you draw.
For creatures, i'd definitely consider Hover Barrier, since it provides a large, flying body for an insignificant cost. Wall of Frost is another great option, as it can survive most combats and hinder an enemy creature.
Sol Ring makes almost every deck better.
Graveyard antics provide a solid backup for mill. Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Reanimate provide options for taking your opponents' now-milled creatures. The Scarab God is another solid option, depending on budget.

I think you're splitting your focus between ETB/Evasion creatures and setting up the top of your library for Yuriko's triggered ability a bit too much.
Cuts I recommend: Metallic Mimic - Is a ninja, buffs ninjas, but no evasion built in so will be harder to trigger Yuriko. You've got enough creature type fixing to gain more benefit off Yuriko triggers than an extra counter.
Kathari Remnant - I feel like most of your cuts are going to come from your 1-3 drops since you want a higher average CMC for Yuriko's triggers, so the cascade will be lackluster.
Amoeboid Changeling - Once one of your board-wide subtype changers hits the board (especially since you're tutoring for them), since this doesn't have evasion, I don't think it'll see much use.
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive - Besides herself, you only have 4 creatures in your list with power/toughness 1 that don't already have evasion built in, 3 of which are ninjutsu creatures that will likely be unblocked anyways.
Dragonlord Silumgar - Good CMC for Yuriko's trigger, and a nice ETB effect. But they get the creature back when you ninjutsu him away, and he's a little pricey to tack onto a ninjutsu cost to regain the same target.

Arcades, Shield of the People
Legendary Planeswalker - Arcades
+1 Target creature you control gets +0/+2 and gains reach until your next turn.
-2 You draw 2 cards and gain 2 life
-9 You get an emblem with "Creatures you control get +0/+2 and can attack as though they didn't have defender. Creatures you control assign combat damage equal to their toughness rather than their power."
Let's keep this going. Challenge: Turn another elder dragon except for Palladia-Mors, Arcades, or Nicol Bolas into a Planeswalker. Tarkir Dragons can be done as well (Dragonlord Dromoka, Dragonlord Ojutai, Dragonlord Silumgar, Dragonlord Kolaghan, and Dragonlord Atarka).

I thoroughly enjoy the thematic innovation of this deck. While I do think Dragonlord Silumgar may be the better commander choice for this deck, I feel like there's a missed opportunity with Taigam, Sidisi's Hand. Either way, +1 from me!

I even named my self after Dragonlord Silumgar. I need to revise my Tarkir, clearly.

Hi. I have seen your list and I dont think it will work quite just yet. Let me explain.
You are playing a lot of blink stuff. While that is good, only bolas gets a little bit of value off of it. And since you're already playing so few creatures that can also benefit from blinking, it is not worth it.
You play some creature cards that are simply not working together with what the deck wants to do. Talrand, neheb, kazuul, erebos, fog bank are all cards that need to compliment some strategy. Making 3/3 centaurs, 2/2 drakes or a couple of mana just doesnt feel like they have jobs that your deck wants fulfilled. I'd rather see cards like Deathbringer Regent, Hostage Taker, Dragonlord Silumgar who can actively do something about the board. Cards like Deepglow Skate can let you go off if bolas is in his planeswalker form. The Locust God can net you far more tokens then talrand can, and is practically unremovable.
I hope this helps! HF building
