Form of the Dragon Discussion

Liquidbeaver on Healer's Revenge

Discovered a different route I could take with the deck, so I am working on rebuilding and rebalancing it. Initial playtesting was a lot more promising than before, and has the ability to win a lot faster than a traditional Enduring Ideal/Form of the Dragon deck.

Cutting a few more cards from the MB and SB, then should be ready to go again!

Boza on Rivals of Ixalan Spoilers

I got to play Sunday in the prerelease. Opened a sweet foil Deeproot Elite, but only 3 other merfolk. So I went Grixis pirates and I got the nuttiest pool ever.

1 Ravenous Chupacabra, 1 Dire Fleet Ravager, 1 Dire Fleet Poisoner, 1 Captain Lannery Storm, 1 Warkite Marauder were my rares and mythics.

Everything in the deck besides Chupacabra and Raveger and 1 Impale was 3 or less mana.

I got to tempo out people hard. T5-6 kills were plenty. T2 Wanted Scoundrels into t3 Fathom Fleet Boarder into turn 4 Dire Fleet Poisoner + Buccaneer's Bravado left the opponent at 1 life.

Went 3-1 with the deck, losing only to mono-bombs that went t5 Trapjaw Tyrant 2 games and the third went Sunbird's Invocation into next turn Form of the Dragon that fetched and playeda Tyrant for free.

A few deadly suggestions, some recursion and a bit of library search.

Illusions of Grandeur for giving away, getting 20 hp and then having the opponent lose 20.

Form of the Dragon for bringing down high hp guys.

Starfield of Nyx recursion with illusions of grandeur

So in your version,Timesifter would not count the horde as a player, but after every 2 non-horde player turns the Horde gets one?

Also, at a casual glance I did not see any flying so Form of the Dragon OP

ThermalMeerkat on Stranger Things Halloween Zombie Horde

I've been looking for a good horde deck for months now and I love this. Of course, I'm always looking to break the game rules so I have to ask how would chaos decks work against the horde?

How would you rule card interactions with the horde deck of the following i.e. would they be adjusted for this gamemode or perhaps even banned?

Timesifter, Confusion in the Ranks, Donate a Steel Golem to the horde or simply using Form of the Dragon against the horde as I don't see any flying at a first glance.

I suppose you could just rule that they do not affect the horde and only affect the other players.

Citridon on Triple Epic - Becoming a GOD!

It's worked very well so far. I've played half a dozen games.

2 games, I got to stack all 3 Epics.
1 game, I assembled a ton of mana and Helix Pinnacled.
2 games, I put together Form of the Dragon + Phyrexian Unlife + Sandwurm Convergence. I lost one of these, but it was close1 game I lost by decking out, but I was interacting, drawing, ramping and functioning.

Ixalan also brought several vig upgrades. Axis of Mortality + Form of the Dragon is another combo (and increased density makes finding a combo more likely). Like the other pieces related to Form of the Dragon, Axis also has a defensibmve benefit alone.
Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip is more card velocity, and flips into a small mana sinc when T triple-epic occurs.
Search for Azcanta  Flip is filtering, an enchantment, and then flips for land and better filtering. It's also a powerful two-drop, which is a weaker cost in the deck
