Dragonlord's Servant Discussion

KenBirby on Sarkhan Oathbroken

Thank you! I was originally going to run Dragonspeaker Shaman , but the mana cost was a little restrictive in a three-color deck without fetchlands. Utvara Hellkite is a great suggestion, and much better within my budget. I ended up replacing Scourge of the Throne with it. I already actually run a Dragonlord's Servant . It's such a good card in this kind of deck.

Thank you, excellent suggestions.

I will probably end up swapping Kilnmouth Dragon for Night's Whisper , but it will be painful to do so. If you've ever pulled off revealing 3 dragons from your hand and then dropping in the Kilnmouth Dragon , it's a pretty awesome feeling.

As far as Crucible of Fire goes, I hear you. I know it's a total Timmy/"Win More" card, but I'm a Timmy. Also, I feel like it's one of the few options for "Dragon Tribal"-- if you're not utilizing tribal interactions, why bother?; it also makes all of the tokens absolute beasts. The 2/2s become 5/5 terrors of the skies, etc., etc. With Nesting Dragon in the mix, I felt like this was a card I wanted to include. I think I'm going to play-test a bit after my next update and see how it goes.

I was thinking something a little bit similar with Spit Flame -- the best part there was that it fits the dragon triblal theme and lets me re-use it from the GY for only .

Instead of The Immortal Sun , I'll probably swap in Chromatic Lantern instead of the Signets

Also, my "Flying Matters" theme is just about toast now, so I'll probably be adding in the Dragonspeaker Shaman and the Dragonlord's Servant instead of the group-hug mana doublers I'm currently including. While I'm at it, I'll probably be adding Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma too (which was an early suggestion from you).

The point re: Temple of the False God is fair and I'll be swapping it out. I also checked out the Evolving Wilds article you linked. Given the benefit of landfall from Nesting Dragon , do you think I should roll with the "slow taplands" or TM/EW?

I'll work on posting a major update this weekend. Thanks again for your thoughts and feedback, I really appreciate it.

If your main issue is you're getting beat down before you can get your mid/late game rolling then you might want to consider some mass removal. Something like Anger of the Gods could work.

Think about what each card in your deck does and how it helps your over-all plan. Kargan Dragonrider is kind of a flavour win but as a 2/2 it most likely trades or chumps against other early game creatures. You're not generating any card advantage that way.

You might also look at cards like Dragonlord's Servant to fill that roll. It blocks better than Dragon Rider and it accelerates your dragon plan by 1 turn. Dragonspeaker Shaman is also helpful but being a 3 drop it's competing with Sarkhan and Dragon's horde.

Removing the following, some I may re-add when I get them, others would just be better as legit mana sources

High CMC, non-dragon

Zirilan of the Claw -> Boros Signet

Low impact, non-dragon

Dragon Whisperer -> Golgari Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonspeaker Shaman -> Gruul Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonlord's Servant -> Izzet Signet

A little pricey ($), might be more durable as a signet anyway

Sarkhan, Fireblood -> Rakdos Signet

Need colored mana

Homeward Path -> Mountain

Just forgot to order him

Dragonlord Kolaghan -> Dragon Broodmother

Thanks for the suggstions Spairut . Hornet Nest and Frontier Siege are no options for me as they are green and no dragons. The only reason I included some Forest in my Manabase is Cindervines , which is currently my only idea to handle opponents enchantments. Surely not my definite solution.. I don´t need forests for the Dragon Broodmother as there are 6 lands who can produce any kind of mana for dragon spells and 4x Dragon's Hoard .

I know there are a few nice green dragon related cards, but there are more downsides than upsides in switching from a basically red manabase to R/G, when focusing on the ETB effects. In contrast, I thought about switching a bit more to B/R and replace Draconic Roar with Thoughtseize ... For ramp I tried Dragonspeaker Shaman , Dragonlord's Servant or the universal Urza's Incubator . But in the end I replaced them one after another with Dragon's Hoard , as it is a manaramp for all kinds of spells, and an additional card draw for every dragon entering the battlefield. Dragon Egg is just much more effective in this deck then Hornet Nest , as it allows to trigger etb effects two times.

My current Idea is to replace one Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip main and one Chandra, Torch of Defiance main with Metallic Mimic each. This is because I often find myself in situations were I would rather draw a dragon than a Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip was often underwhelming. Metallic Mimic would be a great 2 drop dragon with benefits for all other creatures in the deck, as there are no non-dragons.

Hornet Nest is good for surviving , a great defender and all the damage it gets you put that many 1/1 hornet tokens with deathtouch and flying (you can use a lightning bolt on it for 3 free hornets) and i would replace the dragon egg with the hornet nest.

Atarka's Command may be good. For ramp Frontier Siege Dragonlord's Servant , Savage Ventmaw
