Dream Pillager Discussion

TypicalTimmy on What are the best cards ...

3 weeks ago

I have grown an incredible fondness for red pain enchantments and red "fast draw" mechanics.

  • "Pain enchantments" being enchantments that cause non-combat damage whenever an opponent does something. For example, Burning Earth, Manabarbs and Scald. However, other enchantments that cause damage are favorites too, such as Warstorm Surge. There is an incredible synergy between Power Surge and War's Toll. Either they cast a spell / activate an ability and lose all interaction until their next untap step... Or take an ass-load of damage. When you start layering in the other enchantments, it gets really dirty.

  • "Fast draw" refers to the idea that red has where you exile the top, or several cards, and generally have that turn to cast them. It really kicked off with Outpost Siege, though it is seen on Dream Pillager. In fact in back-to-back sets we saw new fast draw cards: Furious Rise in TBD, and Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast from IKO. Really feels like a great flavor-appropriate method of card advantage

In fact, over the past year, Red has become my #1 favorite color in MTG for it's sheer aggression with strong (though few) oppressive methods.

I think overall I really enjoy Superfriends, but it's also a rather weak deck that requires a lot of interactions. It struggles the most to find synergy between everything and you are almost entirely forces into green for Doubling Season. What really helps is Proliferate, Oath of Teferi and The Chain Veil as well as Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Several Ajani place counters, there is Oath of Gideon, The Elderspell, etc as well.

But nothing in red. So here's one for red, to help assist it.


Empower Legends

Legendary Enchantment

Exile a nonland card with converted mana cost 3 or more from your hand, : Put a loyalty counter on each Planeswalker you control.


Red has been showing love for exile matters lately. Act on Impulse, Apex of Power, Commune with Lava, Dream Pillager, Etali, Primal Storm, Furious Rise Hazoret's Undying Fury, Ignite the Future, Light Up the Stage, and now the newest edition of Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast.

And it all began with Outpost Siege :)

Make another mono-red exile matters card.

Cards up for consideration: Getting carried away looking at ETB creatures! Sneak Attack, Dragon Mage, Strionic Resonator, Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Combustible Gearhulk, Dockside Extortionist, Fanatic of Mogis, Godo, Bandit Warlord Burning Sun's Avatar, Hoarding Dragon, Molten Primordial, Ox of Agonas, Terror of Mount Velus, Thunder Dragon, Dream Pillager, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Hellkite Tyrant, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker(This one goes infinite with Zealous Conscripts so that may be out...) Ricardo mentioned these ones Cavalier of Flame, Fires of Invention, Purphoros, God of the Forge

Doesn't seem like you need a ton more draw cause you get to reuse creatures, but these were mentioned too if you do. Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.

It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.

budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier

if you are interested in more dragons, Ancestor Dragon , Scalelord Reckoner , Sunscorch Regent , Dream Pillager , Moltensteel Dragon and Tyrant's Familiar may be a good starting point.

i would also consider cards like Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Gideon's Phalanx , Militant Angel , Waylay or cards like Changeling Hero

that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

ScreamingHydra I think you are right. I dont like it but right is right. I'll swap it for Dream Pillager to get a damage trick but open for suggestions lol

So, landwise I do not like the Valakut, and would recommend either Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Flamekin Village or an Utility land like Buried Ruin. Also not a fan of Brave the Sands and Dowsing Dagger. just too cute for me. Still a fan of Scroll Rack when you play Land Tax though :)

Creaturewise I think Dragonmaster Outcast is just too low impact, also Moonveil Dragon and Skyship Stalker are a bit weak. Even though Dragonspeaker Outcast provides great ramp I am struggling with that one. There are a few dragons which merit further exploration I think, but can depend on what you are facing.

Thunderbreak Regent (A rattlesnake and nicely costed)

Thundermaw Hellkite (can clear the way for your non-trampling attack)

Scourge of the Throne (it is perfectly easy to get an additional attack out of this at least once)

Rimescale Dragon (would require moving to snow lands, a bit clunky manawise)

Kilnmouth Dragon (good utility dragon, but with the nr. of dragons you are running may be awkward)

Hellkite Charger (additional attacks? would pair nicely with neheb :)

Flameblast Dragon (no need to hit a player to dish out damage)

Wardscale Dragon (defense during your attack)

Nesting Dragon (The egg tokens are a good thing against board wipes)

Some Card Draw Dragons

Hoarding Dragon (Without the ability to misuse the ability may be a bit weak)

Eternal Dragon (more slow moving)

Dream Pillager (good effect, setup to high maybe)

Skyline Despot (well draws at least one cards and monarch makes stuff move)

Runehorn Hellkite (this one I really like. Usable EOT before you have your turn makes this really good)

you could add Dragon Broodmother, Dream Pillager, Glorybringer, or Hellkite Charger

Lot of fun options for Dragons
