Hellkite Whelp Discussion

This is a pretty good start!
The biggest thing to fix here is how many different cards you have and how often they are included in the deck. Your deck should be focused on how to win, and possible counters to other deck styles, like burn spells, and removal.
Let's start with creatures: Get rid of Fearless Halberdier , Fire Elemental , Goblin Assailant , and Hellkite Whelp . Those cards, especially the first three, can be replaced with others that cost the same and do more, such as Goblin Chainwhirler , Charging Monstrosaur , Marauding Raptor , and Verix Bladewing respectively. Try to focus on how you want to win, and what creatures will get you there, if they don't, throw them out. Use full playsets (4 of a card) as much as possible. It seems like you're going for a quick kill haste kinda vibe, which is good, but make sure then that your creatures all have haste, or can be good answers to threats.
Spells: You can't have a deck called Chandra's Fury without using a lot of burn spells. Glad to see you're running 4 Shock s. If you include 4 Verix Bladewing s, you should also have 4 Spit Flame . 4 counts of Banefire should also be included. Additionally, add one or two more Chandra's Flame Wave (to get Chandra more often) and remove Sure Strike and Engulfing Eruption . Replace Act of Treason with Hijack , because it allows you to gain control of an artifact or a creature for the same cost.
Throw in an extra Chandra, Flame's Fury and only use 20 mountains.
Try to keep your deck to 60 cards, that way you get the best cards most often, and your deck isn't drowned out by useless cards. Glad to help, let me know if you have any more questions!

As Slimefoot's hold and influence grew, the land became corrupted in it's image.

Hey! I love this deck list. I think this jund dragons archetype is the most underrated deck in standard right now.
I was playing Jund Dragons before the last rotation with a lot of success against competitive decks, including Aggro Red and Esper Control, the two dominant meta decks at the time. Then came a three-month hiatus, and now I've spent my afternoon trying to figure out how to update my list.
Aside from smashing people in the face with dragons (especially Demanding Dragon ), my deck used 4x Spit Flame as discard fuel and 4x Dragon's Hoard for consistent draws. 4x Glorybringer was amazing for tempo. I ran 2x Lathliss, Dragon Queen and 2x Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , but they were ultimately placeholders for 4x Verix Bladewing , which were not at any LGS in my area. I ran 2x Sarkhan, Fireblood , and in hindsight, I should have run at least one more. The fun thing with these core cards is that both discard fatigue and casting waste are reduced. You don't need more than one or two big dragons at any given time, and better still, Spit Flame is a gift that keeps on giving. And giving. And giving. I cannot understate how useful Spit Flame can be. This property of the deck gives the Sarkhan, Fireblood cycle ability so much value.
Rotation added: - Shock Lands, and with them, much-improved mana balancing. - Several Dragons. Skarrgan Hellkite and Hellkite Whelp are the only ones that don't require splashing blue. - Many, many possible tools that I haven't decided how I want to use.
In attempting to revamp my old take on the deck, my issues are as follows: 1. The selection of useful 1- and 2-CMC cards is extremely difficult. 2. Without Bomat Courier , I risk losing too much card advantage on discard plays. 3. I am uncertain as to what can replace the loss of Glorybringer , the best tempo card in the deck.
I'd love to hear of any changes you've made to your list. I'm going to continue working on mine. However, I have a bit of feedback: - You crushed the mana balance problem I was trying to figure out. I've been testing starting hands with your lands, and I get the mana I need every time with at most one mulligan. - I didn't realize how useful Riot could be, but it makes every dragon so much better. Do you think it should be part of the core of the deck, or just something used occasionally? - I would definitely add Risk Factor , because it can make or break your endgame, either refilling your hand or getting you closer to lethal. - I want to say, "Sideboard Rhythm of the Wild ," but I'm not sure. You won't need the counterspell-proofing in every matchup, and as useful as Riot is, you will always get more benefit from other 3-drops like Dragon's Hoard , Sarkhan, Fireblood , or even Goblin Chainwhirler . That said, it makes Incubation Druid into a powerhouse and gives your big guys haste. More on this later. - Cut Gruul Spellbreaker altogether. It's great on its own, but in this deck, there are always going to be better Turn 3 plays, and you'll want to use your mana from later turns tossing dragons onto the battlefield. - Cut Domri, Chaos Bringer . You have better ways of getting mana and card advantage. For tempo, replace with Demanding Dragon . For card advantage, replace with Risk Factor . For mana ramp, replace with Incubation Druid . On that note... - Cut Thrash/threat. If you play well, Thrash/threat is almost never going to be as good as Demanding Dragon , which also comes with a 5/5 flying body. If you're playing it in the early game, Thrash won't be dealing much damage, and once you have enough mana for dragons, Threat pales in comparison. - Unless you are getting constantly beaten by wide boards, sideboard Ritual of Soot and Cry of the Carnarium . The better of the two is likely Cry of the Carnarium , because it stops any Golgari graveyard play, Boros weenies, and any deck with a Phoenix. - Bedevil should be sideboarded and might be worth cutting. If you need artifact tech, sideboard Deface . Most giant creatures can be stopped using your Spit Flame or Banefire . Likewise, Banefire will take care of most low-CMC planeswalkers, while your dragons will almost certainly be able to manage any higher-CMC walkers later on. - Incubation Druid is a solid 2-drop, but you must either use it in conjunction with riot or lose it...
I really need to bounce ideas off people, so let me know what you are up to!
