Dragonlord's Servant Discussion
6 days ago

My #1 favorite set in the entire history of Magic was the Tarkir block, specifically Dragons of Tarkir. I know most people went for Khans of Tarkir because of the fetch lands, but I'm not a very competitive player. I like flavorful decks, big flashy cards, stupid combos, and awesome finishers.
- Your typical Timmy / Johnny Modern player
So when I saw the plethora of Dragons in M19 my inner fanboy freaked!
I currently have like four or five Dragon decks. Gruul, Jund, Rakdos, Azorius (That one sucks but is fun to play), and I had an older Jund deck that I quit using because it was making problems with my group.
I gotta say, Sarkhan, Fireblood pairs especially nicely with Sarkhan Vol. Their +1 abilities line up rather nicely. Draw a card and give your bois +1/+1 and Haste or pop out a Dragon and give it +1/+1 and Haste. Very nice.
Sure, Fireblood is two turns slower to ult but you also now have 8 cards in your deck that do the same thing (If you so choose). Dragon decks centered around Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest will have far too much fun with these.
Which leads me into Sarkhan, Dragonsoul. I currently have a Mono-red Dragon deck that actually ramps via Dragonlord's Servant and Infernal Plunge. I'm definitely able to make room for at least two of these guys, which is going to be awesome.
Stepping aside from Dragons now, I'm also super excited for Apex of Power as I routinely run decks that can very easily achieve those levels of mana, though I may just run a single copy in a deck as Genesis Wave is strictly better. For 10 mana, you get X=8 and they hit the battlefield. Though what's interesting is if you cast an Apex of Power, you can filter the top seven and Genesis Wave the next 8. I'm not 100% certain if this is a good idea or not, but it could be worth looking at.
I'd also like to say that I'm super excited for the new Gruulfriends deck I can build around Vivien Reid and Domri Rade. If you get both emblems, which should be rather easy to do in Gruul, everybody now gets the following:
- +2/+2, Indestructible, Double Strike, Haste, Hexproof, Trample, and Vigilance. That's a TON of anthem!
Also, can I just say that Resplendent Angel alongside Nyx-Fleece Ram + Inventors' Fair + Venser's Journal + Fountain of Renewal + Radiant Fountain is dangerously potent when you consider Angelic Accord and Archangel of Thune are a thing.
It's also nice to finally have a new Hydra addition that doesn't completely suck.
I also run a Mono-Black Demon Tribal centered around the following:
- Soulcage Fiend
- Abyssal Persecutor
- Master of the Feast
- Archfiend of Depravity
- Desecration Demon
- Indulgent Tormentor
So, naturally Liliana's Contract is a nice addition. Worth noting: Grixis Arcane Contract will be fun.

How about Mind Stone instead of Dragonlord's Servant? Sure, it can't block, but on the other hand it's not in Lightning Bolt-range. Dragonlord's Servant does give you a cut on every dragon you play, but unless you plan to play 2+ dragons pr. turn, a mana rock is the same amount of mana. And the real advantage is, of course, that Mind Stone is a better late-game card, since you can cycle it.

I suggest playing 4 Heartless Summoning. It'll ramp you 2 mana instead of 1, and the downside isn't bad at all when you can play 5 mana dragons on turn 3. I'd replace the Pillar of Origins or Dragonlord's Servant with it. If you go that route, you'd also be able to go down a couple lands, which would let you play more creatures such as Thundermaw Hellkite or Stormbreath Dragon (both of which are good dragons you should try out).

Simian Spirit Guide is interesting, but it would require a lot of playtesting to see if it deserves spots in the deck. Is Guide being a one shot deal worth it? The problem is what do you cut for it?
I can't see cutting any Dragons for it. You could cut Anger of the Gods, but this is risky since Jaysterbaby said he's expecting Merfolk or Vampire matchups; Anger is very good in these matchups.
Another option is cutting Dragonlord's Servant, relying more on Guide giving you that extra mana to cast Dragonspeaker Shaman a turn earlier. This is risky because Servant can consistently without help from Guide make a turn three Thunderbreak which is good in aggro matchups. Shaman can however with help from Guide give you a turn three Glorybringer or Thunderbreak which is amazing.

I don't have a format in mind as me and my friends just play for fun. If I have to tweak it for formats I can do that on my own time. I just need help tweaking this deck, as I believe 80 cards to be alot even with great mana ramps, I will be going up against Merfolk with unblockable and buffs, and vampires with lifedrain, life link and deathtouch, with some flying
Suggestions and opinions welcome. Thank you

Without knowing your Dragon deck, my first thought is to avoid Reflecting Pool in favor of dual lands like, depending on budget, Wind-Scarred Crag or Stomping Ground. Also, if you don't have them, check out Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman.
