Appreciate the suggestions Ill switch some things out for these. The reason for cards like Radiant in my deck is for the mass army of tokens. By using Steel Overseer I give +1/+1 to Myrs, Tendershoot Dyrad for Saprolings, and Radiant for one of the other tokens depending on how my field is going so I have more power per token and reduce my opponent's chances of surviving even if they are also a creature spam deck.

As for cards like Aether, Thran Temporal, and Quicksilver, I've found in my testing my deck has a tendency to give either no mana or only two out of the three types of mana. This is a problem since several cards require 2+ devotion to a certain mana and they are there sort of as insurance to getting out cards like Archetype of Endurance and Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Though I certainely will be putting Elvish Piper in and likely take out Quicksilver Amulet

As for Leyline of Sanctity I'll likely leave it in but add Shalai to add the chance of me getting hexproof, especially since its one less dependence on getting Archetype out with it having such a high cmc.

Appreciate the feedback highly!

Evolution Sage is another great proliferate outlet for you.

You have some cards in here that I don't think really fit. Radiant Destiny doesn't really seem to be worthy of a slot. Intangible Virtue is better, but I'm not sure how important the vigilance aspect of it is for you. Aether Vial , Thran Temporal Gateway , and Quicksilver Amulet I think could be replaced by other cards that better fit what the deck wants to do. If you really want the effect, Elvish Piper does it better. I think I'd cut Leyline of Sanctity . The new Leyline of Abundance fits what you want to do better. If you still want the Leyline of Sanctity effect, Shalai, Voice of Plenty does it better for your deck, in my opinion.

Phyrexian Vault could be replaced with something better and repeatable, like Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or Greed . I'd also consider running cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to take advantage of sacrificing your creatures.

And here's some fun tech: Plaguemaw Beast + Thornbite Staff .

Hope this helps, and enjoy your Commander experience!

Hey, nice budget Dragon deck.

Games where you draw and get Utvara Hellkite onto the battlefield are going to be much better than games when you don't. Consider a few more budget tutors that can tutor for Utvara?

Cards to consider cutting for these tutors:

  • Fated Return
  • Relentless Assault
  • Yosei, the Morning Star

Consider cutting the five Vivid lands replacing them with budget Pain lands? Adding the Pains lands will reduce the number of lands that ETB tapped which can help game play.

Dragon Arch or Elvish Piper can cheat a Dragon from your hand onto the battlefield. Generous Gift and Beast Within are upgrades for a removal spells. Sarkhan Unbroken is an upgrade for a Dragon Planeswalker. Paradise Druid is a budget mana dork who can make any color of mana.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Keiga, the Tide Star
  • Mortify
  • Utter End
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Sarkhan the Mad

Good luck with your deck.

War Cadence is a card that can help you punch damage through, and Goblin War Drums can provide a similarly annoying effect.

You may benefit from more ramp and card draw. Endless Atlas doesn't seem too good. Rishkar's Expertise , Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, or even Fecundity would be better in its place (I would probably run all these in a list myself). I'd probably cut Dreamstone Hedron for a cheaper rock, and since you're running Jund, I'd probably run each of the according Signets for fixing/ramp.

With all your high CMC creatures, you could gain help from Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet , and another helpful card for you might be Sunbird's Invocation . I find it to be a very good card in any deck I run it.

Hope these suggestions help!

Would be a great idea to include an Elvish Piper in this.

Hey! I love werewolves. I converted my deck into an EDH deck but it still slays. In my experience, Immerwolf and Moonmist are key - and your opponent knows it. Protect immerwolf with something like Lightning Greaves and play your moonmist sparingly. Also, I use Elvish Piper , Call of the Wild , and Cryptic Gateway to cheat my dogs out without "playing a spell". Good luck!

The easiest way to speed up a deck is by removing ETB tapped lands. I highly suggest running Command Tower , as well as City of Brass and Mana Confluence . If you have access to it, Cavern of Souls is a good option for any tribal deck, but Unclaimed Territory is another good option. Forbidden Orchard , Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool are more interesting lands to consider.

Green dorks and two-mana rocks are also very good. I see you're running Birds of Paradise , but Elves of Deep Shadow , Llanowar Elves , Rampant Growth , Fyndhorn Elves , Orcish Lumberjack and (if you can) Noble Hierarch are also great additions. If you want to invest relatively heavily into your dork-base, Bloom Tender is REALLY good in chromatic decks. If you find yourself facing a lot of blue decks, Carpet of Flowers is a good idea, too; Joiner Adept acts as a second Chromatic Lantern .

Fellwar Stone is good. The talisman cycles ( Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Impulse , Talisman of Unity , Talisman of Progress and the new five from Modern Horizons) are all good; I suggest that most, if not all, of your mana rocks should be two or less mana. Using a land like Ancient Tomb also helps cast these turn one. Signets like Dimir Signet or Boros Signet are good too, although I think most of the time the talismans will be better. Gilded Lotus is a good exception to my CMC rule in a deck with as many fat creatures as yours.

I don't think Nissa's Renewal is very good; generally, ramp is good in the early game, but not so good by the time you reach six mana. Nature's Lore , Rampant Growth , Farseek , Cultivate and/or Kodama's Reach are all powerful ramp spells you can fire off early. I think the first three are better, if only because they can fetch non-basics like Breeding Pool or Godless Shrine . I'm not as much a fan of the other two, but experience will show if they're worth including. Finally, I think Skyshroud Claim is better than Explosive Vegetation .

If you're going in the Quicksilver Amulet direction, Elvish Piper and Thran Temporal Gateway are good ideas as well.

If at all possible, tutors are good. Demonic Tutor is the gold standard here, but Diabolic Tutor is a good, more affordable alternative. Vampiric Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Sylvan Tutor , Dark Petition and Gamble are all good cards as well, though their affordability varies tremendously.

Red comes with good counter counter magic options. Price of Glory is a good card if you want to discourage opponents playing on your turn, and Pyroblast is a good way to stop Counterspell and friends. Cards like Pyrostatic Pillar can punish decks with lower curves.

Card draw is at a premium in EDH. Staff of Nin is easy on the colored mana and gives you an extra draw each turn, and Phyrexian Arena is another good option. Harmonize , Concentrate and Painful Truths are good draw-threes.

Because your deck is running a LOT of fatties (and the best fatties, at that, 'cause they're dragons), you may find cards like Lurking Predators is be pretty good; Descendants' Path is a similar card. Depending on how fatty-heavy your meta is, Eureka effects like Show and Tell may be good. Sneak Attack is good if you want to use one-time face-smacks like Nicol Bolas or your already included Oros, the Avenger .

If you DON'T want to run dorks, and opt for artifact ramp instead, depending on your meta you may have a good time with cards like Porphyry Nodes or Night of Souls' Betrayal . Effects like Pyroclasm and Volcanic Fallout can also wipe out opponent's boards if they choose to go wide.

I think EDH decks tend to need a lot of mass removal. By Force is a favorite of mine, and Toxic Deluge , Wrath of God , Ritual of Soot and Supreme Verdict are all great if you have access to them. Back to Nature is good if you choose to cut down on the number of enchantments you're running, but Nature's Claim or Krosan Grip are also pretty good options.

If your curve is really high, things like Timesifter can be pretty brutal.

I'm not super sure Niv-Mizzet Reborn is very good. I don't know if you'll be getting very much card advantage, because you have a lot of cards that are more or less than exactly two colors. I think a card-draw spell like the ones I mentioned above would be better, like Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time .

Good luck with deck building my man!
