Glorybringer Discussion

Feiryn on Here there be DRAGONS!

3 weeks ago

Ah okay, I assumed the maybeboard were cards you were only looking at, my bad!

In that case you have a bunch of stuff that definitely could fit in the deck. For those three you mentioned Exploration is very good and can be slotted in over Rampant Growth, Canopy Vista/Smoldering Marsh can just be replaced by a Forest/Mountain, and definitely take a Sol Ring if you have a spare one.

As for others, here's the most notable you have on your maybeboard:

  • Asceticism
  • - If it resolves your dragons are almost invulnerable outside of stuff like deathtouch/boardwipes
  • Smothering Tithe
  • - Could help with ramp
  • Dragonlord Ojutai
  • - Great card advantage with hexproof half of the time
  • Glorybringer
  • - Might not be as strong as some other options but that exert can effectively be a removal spell every other turn
  • Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip
  • - Great value all around and if you manage to transform him you basically win
  • Rishkar's Expertise
  • - Pricy but casting it will probably mean refilling your hand and getting a free dragon which covers its cost
  • Cyclonic Rift
  • - EDH staple and one of the best boardwipes in the format, wipes all of your opponents' creatures, artifacts, walkers, etc
  • Force of Vigor
  • - Pretty good removal that can be manaless
  • Teferi's Protection
  • - Protects your entire side from boardwipes

For boardwipes you already have Crux of Fate and Balefire Dragon. Throwing in Cyclonic Rift would definitely be a good choice. The issue with boardwipes in decks like these is that you don't want to reset your own boardstate, but that's why the three I mentioned are so good because they only affect the opponents. Cyclonic Rift also dodges indestructable as it's a bounce effect rather than a destroy.

In my opinion, counters are generally not very effective in decks like these. It's generally more effective to run cards like Rhythm of the Wild and Asceticism as they're not one-shots, while also having the side-benefit of opponents using their counters on your other opponents instead. If you wanted to pick up additional effects like those if counters/removal are rampant in your group, I personally like Steely Resolve and Conqueror's Flail.

I actually recommending cutting Deflecting Swat as you'll only rarely have your commander out. If you want one-shot defensive utility, Veil of Summer and Autumn's Veil are amazing for that.

If you want more spot removal, I definitely recommend picking up a Path to Exile. With it, Swords to Plowshares, and Anguished Unmaking you should be good for spot removal unless you wanted to splurge on an Assassin's Trophy.

I'm unsure about Ramos, Dragon Engine. Since you're in a more casual environment they might be okay, but unless you have something like Descendants' Path down they're not really worthwhile. If you're wanting to go out and buy a fairly expensive creature, by far the best purchase you could make is Kaalia of the Vast IMO.

Hey. That is cool that you are new to magic and have friends to play with. I have some suggestions for your deck.

I want you to notice that on Crackling Drake and Pteramander that some of the power in these cards come from the amount of instants or sorceries in your graveyard. I would say that you aren't getting the most out of these cards because you aren't running enough non-creature spells and therefore I would replace them. Fortunately, there are plenty of affordable dragons that I think you should consider. One in particular is Glorybringer.

Additionally, I would say that this deck should probably run 2 or 3 more lands. So maybe take out some of your less effective cards like Pteramander or Divination for more mana.

I actually have a Blue/Red Dragon deck that maybe you could get some ideas from Budget Midrange Izzet Dragons.

P.S - I think this deck is actually Pioneer legal besides Serum Visions which you could just replace with Opt but I am not sure if format matters to you or not since you're just playing casually.

Hey, you're welcome.

Draknoz already said anthem effects, Crucible and Door, that pump Dragons are not really needed because Dragons are already have big power and flying. An exception could be if you add Dragon Broodmother, Mystery Booster version. These types of anthem effects could be cut for draw sources such as Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner since draw would be overall more helpful. Dragonlord Ojutai, Mystery Booster version, can be repeatable Anticipate, card advantage. Being able to choose one from three cards can be nice on a budget and she's also a 4 drop 5/4 Dragon.

If a mana dork can't make more than one color than I don't think on a budget it's good enough to play with five colors. To consistently be able to take advantage of one drop mana dorks you need lots of lands that can ETB untapped to make green mana turn one. This manabase because on a budget doesn't have that. If you ever upgrade the manabase with Shocks, Fetches and some Pains then some one drop mana dorks could be added.

Faeburrow Elder and Paradise Druid are fine budget mana dork options for five colors. Either one could replace Pillar of Origins. Mana Geode is the worst three drop mana rock here and there's quite a few of them. It could be cut for Idyllic Tutor to get Tempest or Ascendancy.

If having trouble with opponent board states of little creatures attacking you then consider some budget damage spells and more lower mana cost Dragons? Earthquake and Rolling Earthquake, Double Masters version, for damage spells and Earthquake doesn't hurt Dragons. Thunderbreak Regent is a three drop 4/4 Dragon, Glorybringer is a four drop 4/4 Dragon who can potentially kill a creature the turn you play it with exert and Kiora has interaction with exert. These Dragons could replace Numot, the Devastator and Mana-Charged Dragon.

Normally 5 drops in seems like a sin but the Skred Red shells can run them well. With 22x Lands, 4x Mind Stones and other mana accelerators like Koths -2 it is not uncommon to run other 5 drop finishers like Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite or Glorybringer.

I’d add Crucible of Fire since it’ll pump up your dragons a lot on the attack.

Territorial Hellkite and Glorybringer are great low mana dragons that can get in there for attacks sooner.

I’d remove Dragon Breath since it really doesn’t do all that much and another mana rock would just be better. Maybe Dragonlord's Servant could be a good swap for more cost reduction.

In terms of the cards, I assume you're going for a dragon tribal controlly deck. Silumgar's Scorn and Foul-Tongue Invocation are good and also dirt cheap. Grixis also gives you access to a lot of good non-dragon-themed cards like Lightning Bolt and Terminate. Since your dragons have high power, Stubborn Denial should do well in your deck. Fatal Push also got cheaper with the reprints.

For the dragons themselves, Stormbreath Dragon is pretty good. Same with Glorybringer and Dragonlord Silumgar. Dragonlord's Servant and Dragon's Hoard both ramp.

Eh, I've never found a 5-drop other than Glorybringer worth running in aggro. Even Chandra's Incinerator is a 2-drop.

PhotogenicParasympathetic on What was your favorite play …

3 months ago

The Simic player popped off, spitting out loads of creatures with loads of +1/+1 counters, and swung out at me. I took 38 square on the jaw, dropped to 2. All I had in play was a Repercussion and a Glorybringer.

On my turn, I cast Insult, then a Dualcaster Mage on the Insult, then attacked with my Glorybringer and exerted. Glorybringer dealt 4 to one of the Simic player's creatures, which doubles to 8 then doubles to 16 - then Repercussion triggered, and shot the player for 16, which doubled to 32, which doubled to 64.

And that's how I killed someone from 40 with Glorybringer's attack trigger, while also 16'ing another player with the Glorybringer itself.

Let's just say my commander, Neheb, the Eternal, lived up to his flavor text.

This is what glory looks like.
