Dragonmaster Outcast Discussion
4 days ago
Hoo boy... List time!
CreaturesYou have a lot of high impact creatures that, without a doubt can take the game on their own, but I see that you have no late game big creature removal. I would suggest taking out the high cmc cards like Angelic Skirmisher and Aurelia, the Warleader and replace them with Figure of Destiny or Dragonmaster Outcast. I would also suggest taking out Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and replacing it with a better one: Gisela, the Broken Blade because the broken blade is much cheaper, has first strike, and lifelink. If you are going to run that, I would also suggest Bruna, the Fading Light because, you know, meld. The purpose of aggro decks, which you labeled this as, is to overwhelm opponents early before you run out of gas, so you need lower cmc creatures, haste preferred. Goblin Guide is a perfect example.
ManabaseAlthough aggro decks aren't as mana demanding as control decks, they still need more dual lands. I would suggest taking out Boros Garrison and replacing it with Sacred Foundry. Shock lands are great because of the potential mana advantage that you can get with this card. Manlands are also great, and I think that Looming Spires would be a perfect fit in this deck. A few mountains and plains are great, but fetchlands are better.
Wincons:Your deck does have many cards that take the game, but I think that it needs a sold wincon. Most decks have 2 parts to it, the wincon, and the supporting cards. If you are running blue, your wincon might be Thing in the Ice Flip and you supporting cards may be bounce and counter sells. If you are going to run Gisela and Bruna, their melded versions can quite easily win you the game. I think that for a wincon, Transcendent Master would be a great add to your deck. Lightning Bolt is a great card and so is Path to Exile. Deflecting Palm can also be a great instant if you use it properly.
SuggestionsI think that overall, you should use cheaper cmc creatures, and maybe some planeswalkers like Ajani Vengeant and more enchantments. I see that you are lacking in sideboards, so for a start, I would suggest putting in Revoke Existence and Leyline of Sanctity.
ps. take out Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas. once you play with her, you'll feel her underwhelmingnessess
Sorry if I sound condescending but I just needed to get these points across. Good deck tho +1

ArcticJohn, I play it all the time on MTGO. It isn't fast enough for Marvel and I think you'd need more hand disruption in sideboard to have any chance, I haven't figured this one out yet. Dispossess and Lost Legacy need to turn up early and resolve to have a chance. I added 2 Collective Brutality last week and they are a tough card for this deck, so versatile and with discard as well.
I have recently mainboarded Sweltering Suns because of the invasion of zombies and aggressive humans and have reasonable success, it all depends on the draw/mulligan. I'm back at 24 lands again as well because I need it, I thought I could get away with less but math doesn't lie! I agree on your suggestion about Yahenni's Expertise
Against control it can be a bit tough. Resolving a Midnight Oil is actually quite crucial here for overwhelming the counters. The other tough match up is decks with lifegain and it becomes a grind.
The sideboard is still a work in progress, I had this idea of stacking creatures in sideboard for the surprise round 2 like Glorybringer, Dragonmaster Outcast etc but I'm not sure this would work that well. I've even thrown in some Dynavolt Tower but not sure if it fits.
One thing is for sure, this is a deck suited to Hazoret the Fervent!!
Any suggestions welcome

That's part of my point - Dragonmaster Outcast isn't a good card. You can come up with a pseudo-Burn, pseudo-Infect, or pseudo-Death's Shadow deck that would probably perform pretty well in this type of environment. I'm skeptical of this deck's chances.

The reason this deck is going to exist is because friends and I are doing a 1 CMC deck tournament. There's no Reason to worry about Chalice of the Void in the tournament.

Your mana curve is a bit heavy on five cost spells. I would try Dragonmaster Outcast or Slumbering Dragon. Maybe try a few Thunderbreak Regents. they are a 4/4 for 4 and damage enemies who use spells on dragons. I jealous of your cavern of souls!! good luck with your deck

Looks pretty good just a few suggestions.
With respect to your mana curve, you don't have much to do turn 1. I'd consider additional mana accelerants. Things like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise can help you get an earlier start on the ramp. Dragonmaster Outcast is also pretty good value
You're a bit light on interaction with your opponents board state. Other than Dragon Tempest if your opponent plays a creature you need to kill you're out of luck. Since tempest requires both the card and a creature to trigger it, you might not be able to kill creatures as efficiently as you would like. Scourge of Valkas works similarly to tempest and might be worth a spot in the deck but also has the same problem of not being able to kill creatures reliably (It definitely pulls its own weight if you have it out alongside Dragon Broodmother though). Lightning Bolt is good at picking off smaller creatures and can even provide the last few points of damage to finish off an opponent.
I think Bow of Nylea can probably come out. The dragons only have deathtouch when attacking. Sine you get a dragon on both your upkeep and your opponent's, you can either spit out a lot quickly or create one big one. Also the bow is legendary so you can only have 1 out at a time. As a 4 of, extra copies will just end up sitting in your hand.

Hey, I came here looking for ideals to steal for my w/g human deck and after a few playtest i must say the Interaction from Odric, Lunarch Marshal+Glorybringer plays out way better then is sounds. That said (please keep in mind all my word are to help not hurt) your mana base was very awkward and slow, too many out of place cards like Eldritch Evolution, Fumigate and Dragonmaster Outcast, Odric by himself is 3/3 for drop the does nothing by himself, Thalia's Lieutenant+Hanweir Militia Captain Flip feed each other yes but, on their own; Hanweir is little more then a bear and Thalia's Lieutenant is even less. All in all I would say you need focus, build off of Odric, Lunarch Marshal+Glorybringer.
Building with that mix in mind I would add Always Watching as you can exert each turn then, I would add 4 Traverse the Ulvenwald cutting 4 land too add them so; cut all Needle Spires(Traverse lets you tutor for Samut, Voice of Dissent) one Plains and Sheltered Thicket for 2 Mountain so when traverse is used as basic land tutor you can get your missing double red or white mana. Cut Thalia's Lieutenant for Honored Crop-Captain and lose Dragonmaster Outcast and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip for Flameblade Adept
GL hope I had some ideals for ya.
