Dragonspeaker Shaman 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.

ThePerilousRealm on Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund

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.

Jack-Frost on Xenagos' Dragon Swarm

Check out my Xenagos Dragon deck, Xenagos, God of Revels . It used to be completely dragon tribal but i've shifted a bit away from that and found that it works excellently. I've been playing and tuning it for the better part of 6 years now, and I think it's in an excellent state. It's not the most powerful because i'm trying to keep it fun for everyone else to play against, but I still think you might pull a few good ideas from there.

As for any suggestions off the top of my head, you might want to look into speeding things up a bit. It won't overpower the deck at all, but it'll allow you to play your own game a bit more and have more control. Cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman are nice, but rather than playing that why not instead play a ramp spell that'll accelerate every card you play and can't be removed as easily. Look into Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , and Explosive Vegetation . The first two can grab lands like Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket , while the last allows you to grab multiple basics. Another great one is Tempt with Discovery .

Cards like Dragon Broodmother are nice, but Balefire Dragon and Skyline Despot are significantly better imo.

Asceticism and Archetype of Endurance provide excellent protection from more casting based decks, and Heroic Intervention will give it to you at instant speed.

Regal Behemoth will give you access to another double mana source

Chromatic Lantern will also give you both mana fixing and further ramp.

Finally, check out Exploration and Burgeoning . Exploration is a little more expensive but Burgeoning is a little cheaper and fantastic.

There are a ton of other things you might like if you check out my deck list.

Good luck Gaming!

heimdallion on The Skies Belong to the Dragons

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.

urchinpriests on The Ur-Dragon

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
