Dragonlord's Servant Discussion
1 day ago
I like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund over Wasitora, Nekoru Queen.
I put a lot of stock in Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Dragonlord's Servant, and Dragonspeaker Shaman too. Pumping all of your guys and making your expensive creatures cost less is paramount in a Tribe like Dragons or Angels.
Taigam, Ojutai Master may not seem too important at a glance, but he's amazing against Control decks when you're going to need every Creature on-board that you can manage. I find that he also makes great Removal bait.
If it were my deck, I'd drop the majority of the Curses ( Curse of Opulence would be the only one I keep) for things like Descendants' Path, Call to the Kindred, Cryptic Gateway, Konda's Banner, and/or Stoneforge Masterwork.
Another quick look through the deck reveals a surprising lack of Crucible of Fire? Unacceptable.
For things to remove, I would drop all of the Curses except Opulence, the Bolas Planeswalkers, Wasitora, Mirrorwing Dragon, Slave of Bolas, Territorial Hellkite, Crosis, Dracogenius, and O-Kagachi. They're all "good" cards, but I don't think this is their proper home.

Another thing to note is that Dragonmaster Outcast probably won't be that great, as if you have >5 lands then you are at the stage where you are enlarging your creatures and/or casting Hellkite Chargers. With this in mind, Dragonspeaker Shaman or Dragonlord's Servant might be better for bringing out big dragons.

Can't build a dragon tribal without Crucible of Fire. To make the casting of dragons cheaper, I'd also recommend Dragonlord's Servant, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Urza's Incubator or Belbe's Portal. My dragon deck also uses Flameshadow Conjuring. Hope this helps; have fun!

I like the card Combustible Gearhulk in combination with your high-mana-cost Dragons a lot! But in my playgroup the guys are always playing less mana creature spells with ugly synergies (example: Allys). So I would say the only problem that you could have is to get a few Dragonlord's Servants in your opening hand or at least on top of your library to can cast your high mana dragon's asap. Therefore I would suggest to add more deck manipulation cards like Ponder etc. and maybe also spells that can reduce the mana cost of red spells. This deck seems to be powerful but maybe a bit slow too. Did you playtest it?

IMHO Sakura-Tribe Elder is better than rampant growth, since it can also block before being sacrificed per the land. Also, Rattleclaw Mystic is probably better than Dragonlord's Servant because you won't probably play more than one dragon per turn, so having access to one additional specific mana is better than having virtual access to one generic mana.

Agreed... When you are talking about near-gods (I'm thinking the prefix "Ur" means "God" in MTG universe linguo), or avatars of non-humans taking a non-human form (Arahbo), an even slightly grounded/relatable storyline is difficult. Most stories can be brought down to a sortof humanized scale by following whatever legendary - (Nazahn, Balan, etc...)and nodding to the demigod throughout. Sometimes filling in the commander's story from the underling's point of view makes for a better story anyway... Let's be honest, would it not be great to hear Ur-Dragon's story from the collected works of thousands of generations of Dragonlord's Servant ? :)

It's probably a safe bet that anything that is currently in standard won't be included in these sets, since they usually have different design teams and are made around the same time, so yes, you should probably pick up a copy of Pride Sovereign and Regal Caracal since I can almost guarantee you that they're not going to be in there. In the same line, commander products rarely contain planeswalkers, so picking up copies of nearly any of the Sorin or Ajani walkers is possibly a safe hit. I suspect if they were to put any one planeswalker in this set it would be Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, as he was printed far back enough to warrant a reprint and best fits his tribe out of any of the other candidates.
As far as Captivating Vampire goes, I have absolutely no clue. Since The Ur-Dragon already gives you a cost reduction on dragons, I suspect Dragonspeaker Shaman may not be included, but I feel that Dragonlord's Servant will be taking its place, due to most of the dragons only being 2/3 generic mana in addition to the colored mana. Just a hunch though. I also have a rather large itch in my side telling me that they won't be including Utvara Hellkite, as it may be a little too much for a pre-con environment. That thing with the already spoiled Scourge of Valkas closes out games very quickly if they aren't answered. Speaking of Scourge, since it was spoiled, it probably means they aren't going to be putting Dragon Tempest in the deck, as a redundant Scourge also ends games very quickly.
Super speculations glasses off, what we really need to be stocking up on is Chaospheres and Mystic Decrees, thar be dragons and vampires heading this way! (And I guess Maze of Ith for the cats with shiny things tapped to their backs...) You distract them while I'm over here shoving nonsense into this cage of mine...
