Hellkite Tyrant Discussion

Maybe Hellkite Tyrant , Treasure Nabber and/or Vanquisher's Banner would help here. Add a Krark-Clan Ironworks to get more mana out of your treasure tokens or to sacrifice the manarocks you stole with Treasure Nabber after you tapped the for mana to get even more mana out of them and slow down your opponents.

I was thinking about my Reveillark alternative win-con's,
Hatred is CMC5 () and just needs Kaalia of the Vast but also likes guys like Baneslayer Angel , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Gisela, the Broken Blade , Lyra Dawnbringer , Serra Ascendant or Whip of Erebos .
Was thinking, it's a different win-con (only 1 player too in some cases), but other than being high CMC, would allow me to cheat in an A/D/D and Commander Damage kill a player if left unblocked as well (Instant speed).
Combat Celebrant is enticing because of his CMC3 (), other than his obvious Exert ability which can land 2 A/D/D in 1 turn, do some mass damage with someone like Balefire Dragon or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , but his real power is that he doesn't need the sac outlet.
Potentially a win-con with someone like, Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Demonlord Belzenlok , Doom Whisperer , Hellkite Tyrant , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Etc. unless there is something large enough to block the Trample indefinitely. Doesn't matter if Combat Celebrant is blocked, just making the copy, allows for the next attack to occur. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker never gets in harms way.
I'm sure there are more ways to abuse him, Splinter Twin obviously, which doesn't work with Buried Alive but can replace Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in most/all? combos too. could tutor Splinter Twin pretty easily. Idyllic Tutor for example could also pull me an Animate Dead etc, feel there could be some good build out around Combat Celebrant for combos, and just his natural talent when attacking with large A/D/D.
Adarkar Valkyrie also gave me:
I just found neither Adarkar Valkyrie or Aurelia, the Warleader properly ETB triggered with Kaalia of the Vast , and I was never tutoring either of them because they aren't that impactful, so ended up removing Adarkar Valkyrie and then later Aurelia, the Warleader to focus more on the primary win-con with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel .
Crucible of Worlds more inline with a classic Kaalia of the Vast , which the Infinite Combat phases + Land Destruction is part of the reason (as well to a degree the amount of hate Kaalia of the Vast receives as a commander), is why she fell to Tier 3, from Tier 2.5 previously. If I have a Grand Abolisher I don't care, but if I don't, sometimes there is surprise when they have 40 life and think they are unkillable by Kaalia of the Vast and leave themselves open and I can swoop in on T4 with the Restoration Angel horde!
It's been a long time since I needed to resort to Reveillark , either I've won, or someone else has combo'd before I really get to a point of attempting a Reveillark win. Combat Celebrant , I feel like I could also use, Entomb / Gamble , example:
Entomb > Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mausoleum Secrets > Reanimate . With a Combat Celebrant and anything to attack with, I'm good to go. ( Entomb makes Mausoleum Secrets more valuable to me too). He also doesn't get haste from Dragon Tempest either, so that's another negative.
He can't really Turn 1 so that's kinda why I was thinking more along the lines of Hatred even without augmenting the Lifelink. Life also fuels my speed, Draw/Mana/Tutor, so not sure of the impact to my game post Hatred .
Dark Ritual , Simian Spirit Guide , Mox Diamond all increase T1 potential, but I always worry about, outside of T1 do they have much value. Dark Ritual can cast a Necropotence so it has some benefit and with other cards Buried Alive + Reanimate .
My current challenge is Faithless Looting , I think it needs to go back in, have to decide what to remove. In games where I draw my Karmic Guide or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker I'm usually like T9 because I have to actually cast them and at CMC5, it's just not realistic with the other costs ( Buried Alive CMC3 and Reanimate CMC1) thats, CMC9, never going to happen. A Faithless Looting makes it CMC5 only. Faithless Looting also has some nice synergies if I don't have an A/D/D in my hand and Kaalia of the Vast is ready to go.
I agree, when is a deck every truly complete. Ever time I play I learn something new about my deck, or a Razaketh, the Foulblooded comes a long and takes over top dog spot in my decklist, and makes Griselbrand being Griselbanned a little easier to take.

Might have went overboard with the signets... but a little short on cheap CC dragons, so:
Trying a dragon-based removal solution (which also ends up lower cc after the discount):
Real talk... Sarkhan isn't great. Moltensteel wins games sometimes:
Triple red (and red activation is tough); I like stealing artifacts though:
A few tapped lands aren't gonna kill anyone (plus I realized later I didn't have a couple of these):

triproberts12 Thank you for you input I do appreciate you taking time to help me. Its true that having a second win con is nice and i was thinking on how needed I really more than just Revel in Riches and beating the opponent through life loss as that just doesn't fit the flavor of my deck.triproberts12 Thank you for you input I do appreciate you taking time to help me.

I was also thinking of adding Hellkite Tyrant as a second win con (third) if i have Mechanized Production

Mana rocks are a balancing act depending on your casting cost. I think this deck can handle a few more.
If you are going to stick with the Curiosity package having another Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind in Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a good idea. I like the Parun better because it just lets you draw cards when other people do stuff and it gets through Counterspell . It is harder to cast, but you may not always be casting it directly.
If you are looking for cuts Bring to Light should probably go first, based on what you said. As for other cuts, your creatures all seem to serve a purpose, but the weakest ones for a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck are the ones with ETB triggers and cast triggers. I think Scalelord Reckoner is weaker because you can't respond to your creature being targeted by getting this card. Scourge of Valkas is also kinda in this category. Ojutai, Soul of Winter has the potential to be Yosei, the Morning Star 2.0 for nonlands, but I don't think it is anywhere near the Time Walk . You may also think about turning the Birds of Paradise into a non creature; you don't really need the mana that early and it just dies to the Wrath of Gods that will be happening in a longer game. As you figure out your playgroup silver bullet style dragons like Hellkite Tyrant may be cut for more relevant effects. The combo pieces that I mentioned before can also go, but I think that you can easily assemble the other half of any dragon based combo you find so I wouldn't cut too many of them.
Keep me in the loop as to how this deck comes together. A friend of mine has a dragons build like this that he is slowly upgrading as well. He is kinda new to the game, so I suggested he look over this deck list.
