Fires of Yavimaya Discussion

shwanerz88 thanks for your comment. I originally had Rhythm of the Wild , but decided I like the ability of Fires of Yavimaya a bit better. Maybe I'll reconsider it again. Thank you!! Guardian Project is another one that keeps coming up in conversation and suggestions. I think what makes Soul of the Harvest is that he lands with Mayael, but maybe I should find room for both. I may replace Benefactor's Draught . Ilharg is already on my list of cards to acquire :P

All in all, terrific suggestions!!

Good evening everyone, looks like a few more comments have come in and life has kept me busy again. Studies with the school semester and the like lol. Anyway, I will do my best to answer some of the questions that people might have.

@davidzedd: You are correct, Blood Moon is a problem, and Prismatic Omen can fix that problem, just as Chromatic Lantern does as well. I would love the run the omen if I can. It just comes down to finding the room for it, but if one can find a spot for it, I would definitely run the card just because of its ability to fix any mana issues we might have as a 5 color deck.

@Vlasiax: I do like haste on my dragons and it is important having that haste, it just comes down to finding the room for it within the 99 card space (again with this space issue lol). Sarkhan Vol I feel isn't exactly the best haste enabler as he will just get shot down pretty quickly to prevent the haste dragons. Fires of Yavimaya is great and was trying to fit it in the deck, but then something happened. That something is the wonderful printing of Rhythm of the Wild and that will be going in the deck somehow. Can't counter my creatures and they get haste (or a +1/+1 counter if a haste enabler is already on field), I am sold. I have thought about Mana Drain and ultimately have left it out for a couple of reasons. 1: I only have one mana drain and it is being used somewhere else lol (though it might return for a future deck, unsure at the moment). 2: The fact it costs BB is rough at times, but getting the extra mana for an early Ur-dragon is incredibly tempting, so I have considered it very much. Though, I have currently opted for a removal package instead of a counter spell package at the moment. Though, maybe I should add more counter spells?

Then here is a last thing, sort of an update. With the War of the Spark on the horizon, what are everyones thought's on some of the cool new stuff we are getting. Specifically the new Nicol Bolas. Seems fantastic to me and I would love a foil please lol. Though, something caught my eye much more than he did, and that is the new WUBRG Niv-Mizzet Reborn card (need a foil). I want to see what we can do with that thing so bad. Do we run it as a commander, or maybe a Ramos, Dragon Engine deck? I could see him being played in many places (Not here in The Ur-Dragon sadly) and I want to commence experiments on him ASAP. With that being said, if a ramos, or niv-mizzet reborn deck is on the way, the mana base and other cards will probably be taken from this deck in order to build that new one. Also, all of artifact cards (like Mana Crypt would probably run better in the ramos deck. Anyway, let me know your thoughts about recent cards. The recent sets that have come are really sweet and can't wait to see the rest of "War of the Spark".

Looks really fun. I'd recommend swapping out that Fires of Yavimaya with the newer Rhythm of the Wild :)

Also, it's not a Dino or a Dragon, but Spellbreaker Behemoth may be a good idea if you are going up against an unusually high amount of counter spells. Including your Commander, there are 17 creatures Spellbreaker will help protect from being countered. Might be worth looking into, just for that alone.

+1 because I started reading the description and comments in Hulks Voice and it was great. Sadly I couldn't come up with any suggestions to go with it.

On second thought... Perhaps Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread could fit in for some extra removal. Fervor , Fires of Yavimaya , and Rhythm of the Wild are all haste enablers, or if you want to keep it more creature based there's Anger and Surrak, the Hunt Caller . Then you can smash face faster.

And in the spirit of keeping The Hulk angry... Azorius has my vote. Sorry, not sorry.

Recommended Cuts


Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan


Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?


Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild


Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough


Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

TypicalTimmy Great suggestions! I have a deep love for Coat of Arms, and when I acquire another that's the plan! :)

I might pass on Kindred Summons and Aid from the Cowl , but I really like the synergy between Fires of Yavimaya / Rhythm of the Wild & Descendants' Path . Definitely adding that one!

I've never seen Flameshadow Conjuring before, but I think I'll try that too! Free triggers for Omnath's second ability feels really good! I have a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck that would love this card!

Fires of Yavimaya , Fervor , Hammer of Purphoros , Thousand-Year Elixir , etc. Are all really good haste enablers and at least one should probably be included to get more value from tap creatures.
