Hellkite Tyrant Discussion

BoozyBlastoise on F**k yo mirrors and shit

Sweet looking deck. Personally I'm a huge fan of Liquimetal Coating with Kiki; seems like it'd be pretty good in your deck with Goblin Welder, Vandalblast, Manic Vandal, etc. It's especially nice with Hellkite Tyrant. Krark-Clan Ironworks and Trading Post are also cheeky with the coating. Awesome deck though, love the idea of Stigma Lasher.

P.S. although it's pricey, Sneak Attack is amazing!

For the all-in sac artifacts theme:

  • Overseer of the Damned -> Herald of Anguish - You can probably discount Herald to a 2BB easily. The removal isn't quite as good, but the discard triggers are painful.
  • Executioner's Capsule -> Quicksmith Genius - The whole deck is centered around Daretti's -1, so you really don't need a lot of removal. You have 14 targeted removal spells. I'm big on Quicksmith Genius, as he triggers on tokens and vastly improves card quality.
  • Murderous Cut -> Chaos Warp - You actually only have 1 card in here that can kill a Pithing Needle (that names Daretti). A few more anti-artifact cards might be warranted.
  • Pentavus -> Hellkite Igniter/Hellkite Tyrant - was never a fan of Pentavus, as he's so dang slow. Also there doesn't seem to be any proliferate support so he is basically 12 mana for 5 artifacts.

I definitely think Pia's Revolution deserves a spot, although I haven't had a chance to actually play it yet to be sure.

Disciple of the Vault and Underhanded Designs are both pretty good too, but would be main-deck material if you were sacrificing things in waves with Krark-Clan Ironworks and such.

I do love dragons. Dragons are my second fave tribe next to rats.

You have a lot of great cards in here, but I notice some things are lacking.

Tutors: Since you run all five colors, why not run some tutors. You already have Sarkhan's Triumph, but why not run a few others. Your commander works as a tutor, but you have to get him out first, and hope that no one messes with your graveyard. I would add at least four more to your deck: Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition are some of my faves that let you add a card right to your hand. The last two are pretty cheap, while Demonic is a bit pricey.

Recursion: I see that reusing your dragons is a theme, but you only have a few cards that do it and they are all one offs. Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Volrath's Stronghold all stay on the field and let you use their effect over and over again. In tribal decks, I find Patriarch's Bidding to be great.

MORE Dragons: Utvara Hellkite, Hellkite Tyrant, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of Valkas, and Tyrant's Familiar are some of the better Dragons I've noticed you are missing.

Other helpful cards: Dragonspeaker Shaman and Urza's Incubator will help lower the cost of your dragons, making it easier to summon them. Dragon Tempest is just like Scourge of Valkas only it's an enchantment.

I have a LOT of other card suggestions, but I don't want to overwhelm you. I hope these suggestions help you out and if you want more help let me know. EDHREC is a great place to go to get ideas. I go there when first constructing my decks for ideas on what to put in the deck.

New combo added;

Mycosynth Lattice + Urabrask the Hidden wait for your opponent to tap out his defense then play Hellkite Tyrant with haste.

The result is you gain control of all your opponents permanents currently on the battlefield!!

Spirits on Kaalia, The Mardu Queen

Nice to see another Kaalia of the Vast player, fellow player Kaalia, the Purifier

Rune-Scarred Demon would be really good, he can ETB and replace himself with another creature or find a solution that you need. I generally pull a Master of Cruelties if I'm in aggro mode, he's a 1-hit kill when dropped with Kaalia of the Vast and unblocked, eliminates a player.

Angel of Despair or Iona, Shield of Emeria are good if you find you need a bit more control.

Hellkite Tyrant is great for commander, lots of artifacts. Demonic Tutor also helps find what you need when you need it.

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are good creature control, or Anguished Unmaking if you need non-creature control.

Blood Crypt, Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry are good commander lands.

Nice build. +1. Love the Abyssal Persecutor a Path to Exile would really help when you no longer need him.

Not sure you need the Ankle Shanker most of your guys are pretty tough without the deathtouch, and at CMC 5 for 2/2 not needed imho. Boltwing Marauder isn't bad, but his ability isn't quite as strong as the rest of the crew.

I spent a lot of time on my own deck Skycaptain Kari Zev Captain of the Sky! (which actually has a decent amount of tech I've been discovered) and I think you're really missing out by not upgrading your dragons/phoenix to possible wincons. You can take out these whatever dragons for Hellkite Igniter, Hellkite Tyrant, Hoarding Dragon, and Tyrant's Familiar.

If you still wanted auras you can run Bestial Fury to basically make her unblockable or they suicide that replaces itself. Latulla's Orders is cute but auras in general depend on the local meta's ratio of wipe and spot removal. More than enough Gauntlet effects to consider an always threatening Fiery Mantle.

You'll probably get more plays out of Five-Alarm Fire than Surge.

Nemesis Mask might help a lot.

Not sure about how your group feels about this but for a single player, suprise kill...Tainted Strike.

I think Hellkite Tyrant would be pretty amazing here as well.

If Zurgo is getting killed when he's not indestructible, Blessing of Leeches or Cho-Manno's Blessing. They both basically counter something like an instant but stick around as an enchantment.

I have a deck built around an indestructible boss (Dey's all daid Paw!) but its mostly green so a lot of the cards won't work here. (and the link's not working. Maybe i have an extra space in the title or something)

Hydrax on Naya Dragonlords (5-0 FNM)

Magic45, I would say the strength of this deck is in the sideboard. Even against its worst matchups it can adapt and dominate games 2 and 3 of every match.

As far as wishlist goes, I wish I had made some room for Boros Charm. Boardwipes do hurt a lot, and sometimes I just don't have an Asceticism on the board to regenerate my creatures. Boros Charm could save them.

Hellkite Tyrant is a card I forgot about, it would have been hilarious in the Affinity matchup.

Remember when you're playing the deck: your sideboard is your best friend! Good luck!
