I'm glad you like the deck NV_1980 :)

Thank you for the suggestion as well. I've been thinking about including Hellkite Charger before, but have decided against it since the on-attack ability won't trigger if it's cheated out by Ilharg, the Raze-Boar 's ability. It is also quite a big blowout to throw out the Avatar of Slaughter on the board temporarily, since I get the full benefits of its attack-doubling power and my opponents get none of it, since it gets returned to my hand at end of turn :)

I do appreciate the suggestions though!

Hi there,

We like your deck; looks like fun to play which is what this wonderful game is all about. We would probably swap Avatar of Slaughter for Hellkite Charger though. Let us know how your brew functions when it's operational :)

Drakorya Thanks so much for the feedback, these are all my paper decks and funnily enough, Dragon Mage and Hellkite Tyrant are in my Kaalia of the Vast deck. Balefire Dragon has been on my buy list for ages, so not available. Hellkite Charger unfortunately I wouldn't get to use the ability because It's already declared as attacking if I cheat it in off Ilharg's attack. I know, Its a bit weird, but its the same reason there are no annihilator Eldrazi in the deck. Thanks for your feedback though because Dragon Tyrant is EXACTLY the type of stupidity I want to drop out with the spicy pork chop! Thanks for your input!

I think some of the mono-red beaters usually found in Kaalia of the Vast decks could fit in here. Cards like:

Balefire Dragon - Wrath opponents board

Dragon Mage - Refuel your hand (and possibly disrupt opponents hands)

Dragon Tyrant - Big beatstick

Hellkite Tyrant - Only if your opponents tend to play artifacts

Hellkite Charger - Extra attack steps (and can combo with Sword of Feast and Famine )

You might be able to use more protection for Ilharg too, so maybe Darksteel Plate and Lightning Greaves , and Godo, Bandit Warlord to tutor for them?

Thanks! I'm considering adding Aggravated Assault , and Hellkite Charger too, for maximum effect. Though I think that might be a separate deck. Thanks for the suggestion!

Savage Ventmaw is always nice, especially with Hellkite Charger . They don't give an infinite loop, since you're one mana shy, but they certainly work well together.

Also, I might reconsider cutting Path of Ancestry , especially when you have Descendants' Path .

The deck obviously needs it's mana-ramp. That said, I don't think it matters how you ramp. Each method has pros/cons that can exploited/relegated. I'm not arguing for or against any ramp system, only stating viability and pros/cons.

But to answer your question, a full set of Overgrown Battlement is a sufficient number of defenders to make them well worth including, if so inclined. After all, most mana dorks only tap for 1 mana. Having a 0/4 that taps for at least one mana and up to 4 isn't shabby. In this deck, Sylvan Caryatid is probably better because it mana-fixes in addition to ramping. It's also more expensive. With Dragon Egg , you could swap all your other dorks for defenders. Or not. Up to you. Defenders pros: massive ramp very possible, some toughness for blocking | Cons: can't block when tapped for mana, can't swing, still die to deathtouch, medium/large creatures, removal etc, higher CMCs

If Utopia Sprawl is too expensive, Fertile Ground is an option. Pros to enchantment ramp: rarely removed, combos well with Arbor Elf | Cons: no body, risk of making a land a target for removal, CMC/speed

I've tried multiple times to build a Dragon tribal, but I've never managed to get something that "checked enough boxes." The two combos I like best with Dragons: Dragonmaster Outcast + Harvest Season and Savage Ventmaw + Hellkite Charger .

There's discord in Modern, it seems, as to whether a fast enough deck needs disruption or if it can play threats fast enough to essentially ignore whatever opponents are doing. Your deck here is going for the latter, but I don't have confidence in it's speed. Therefore, I wonder if utility staples like Vines of Vastwood , Blossoming Defense , and Heroic Intervention for deflection and surprising swings as well as Beast Within and Lightning Bolt for spot-removal might be worth considering.

In terms of sideboards, Beast Within , Return to Nature , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Scavenging Ooze , are usually safe bets.
