Hoarding Dragon

Creature — Dragon

Flying

When Hoarding Dragon enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an artifact card, exile it, then shuffle your library.

When Hoarding Dragon is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may put the exiled card into its owner's hand.

McToters Thank you for all the suggestions!

Melee looks like such an utter bomb, oh my god. Definitely adding that in. Can't wait to make what looks like a really really bad attack, and then drop Melee and be like "psych!"

Mogg Infestation and Disrupt Decorum look super fun and like the kind of wacky board wipe I love, so I'll definitely consider those!

I'd tried using Hoarding Dragon and Goblin Matron for a while, but honestly, tutoring so much kinda made me feel like the deck lost its freshness after a few games, so I took out Hoarding Dragon , and I'll probably skip out on the rest of the tutors. (I kept Goblin Matron and Moggcatcher because they're fun and way more interesting play-wise).

Trove of Temptation never feels worth it, tbh. I like swinging out with Stromgald, et al. and having to leave back blockers for a single extra mana (especially in a multiplayer game) feels really awkward play wise.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor seems flavorfully fun, yeah, and actually might be fun to work with. Varchild's War-Riders seems utterly AMAZING and is an instant include, honestly. Especially with Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor 's leaves the battlefield ability. That's some spicy synergy there. Honestly will probably try out both just for that synergy. Unfortunately, however, I don't think Brand grabs tokens put into play under the control of opponents.

Kindred Charge seems fun... except I have so many legendary creatures that I'm not sure it's worth it. For a finisher, it's great, I think. I'll consider it.

Thank you so much for all your suggestions, this was super duper helpful!

Sweet commander!

Melee may be right up your alley.

Mogg Infestation and Disrupt Decorum for pseudo-boardwipes—Mogg to unload more tokens with Purph or Tremors out.

Godo, Bandit Warlord , Inventors' Fair , Tamiyo's Journal , Hoarding Dragon for tutors if interested.

Trove of Temptation for some ramp.

I dont think this helps you at all but Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be interesting flavor for you. Varchild's War-Riders could also supply your opponents with creatures to encourage attacking you so you can block with your creatures. Kinda an odd way to pump your blockers. And if your worried about opponent’s boards getting out of hand with that there is always Brand but that may end up being A dead card in your hand unless if you decide to go that route even more.

Kindred Charge may also be of use.

+1

Love this deck—and what matters most is if you have fun with it!

I’m not sure if I saw some of these in your maybeboard but I would definitely think about running them.

Mana Flare as cheap mana doubler, plus added politics to help keep you alive if you aren’t the threat.

Kill Switch could be a dope board control with Mycosynth Lattice as long as you can untap your own stuff still, so in that regard I would put in Unwinding Clock to handle that. If in budget for you, Paradox Engine . More untap utility: Magewright's Stone , Sword of the Paruns , Thousand-Year Elixir .

I would def run Hoarding Dragon and Godo, Bandit Warlord for extra artifact tutors. But that’s just me.

How has this played in your meta?

+1 for jank and the uniqueness

Hoarding Dragon and Conjurer's Closet is a bad idea. When the dragon leaves the battlefield, the card it originally exiled ends up stuck in limbo. Once it re-enters the battlefield, it's technically a new instance of the card. So when it finally dies, you'll only get back the artifact it most recently exiled.

Also, tokens don't come back from the graveyard or exile. Once they change zones, they disappear.

Glad you like it :)

Lying in bed last night I had the realization that you already have a version of the combo I was talking about with Skullclamp + The Locust God + Ashnod's Altar for infinite creatures, card draw, and mana. I wonder if some trinket mage kinds of effects might be worth putting in? Inventors' Fair Artificer's Intuition Hoarding Dragon etc.

Recommended Cards to Add

This of course does not take into accountmana curve considerations or anything similar. It is merely cards to consider

Creatures

Captivating Crew - Repeated steal effect to have ammunition to throw at people

Evra, Halcyon Witness - Large creature that can be as big as your lifetotal when thrown if wanted.

Serra Avatar - Large creature that is as big as your life total to potentially one shot someone and double your lifetotal

Zealous Conscripts - Can steal an opposing creature to throw, opposing walker to ult or any other problematic permenent. Also incidentaly goes infinite with Kiki Jiki.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker - Can tap to make copies of your big creatures to throw. Goes infinite with Zealous conscripts.

Malignus - Large creature that scales with life total of opponent

Molten Primordial - Mass threaten on a stick

Feldon of the Third Path - makes copies of your already dead creatures

Emeria Shepherd - Recursion that can also be reanimation

Hoarding Dragon - A way to search out our game winning artifacts. Easy enough to throw at someone to get our artifact.

Karmic Guide - Reanimation

Neheb, the Eternal - lots of mana if you throw things pre combat

Yosei, the Morning Star - Very good thing to be able to recur. Can lock people out of the game with enough setup.

War Elemental - Scales as we throw things

Bloodshot Cyclops - Backup Brion?

Bearer of the Heavens - Dont make me do this!

Godo, Bandit Warlord - Can tutor up our powerful equipment. Would prefer Stoneforge Mystic but one is a lot more money than the other.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - Double our damage, half theirs? Yes please

Instants

The usual goes here of making sure that we have interaction for people trying to stop us or making sure we can stop people. Though of specific mention

Faith's Reward - Recover from a wrath or just rebuy a couple of good creatures after a combat and throw.

Orim's Thunder - Hadn't actually seen this before but it seems to be a good potential 2 for 1 while also being a good answer to artifacts and enchantments.

Sorceries

Here there are a lot of potential threaten effects that i could recommend. But we know that we need them so i won't list them all. Other effects we could need do include one or two wraths as even though we are the creature deck, sometimes they just have more or better creatures. However other things to note.

Open the Armory - Tutors equipment or Auras.

Chandra's Ignition - Targetting some of our big creatures might just end the game with this.

Insurrection - You usually just win if this resolves on a decent board state.

Artifacts

Usual list of mana ramp. Sol Ring Boros Signet Commander's Sphere Mind Stone Boros Cluestone Hedron Archive Gilded Lotus Thran Dynamo etc

Other than that, the fun things include

Phyrexian Processor - Yeh this card is rather good. Just Make big tokens and start throwing them

Well of Lost Dreams - With the triggers from Brion we should be able to restock our hand quite easily with this

Illusionist's Bracers - Copy the fling. As sacrificing a creature is part of the cost it will effectively be two triggers from flinging the same creature.

Thornbite Staff - Untaps brion when a creature dies. This includes sacrificing the creature to brion, so effectively tapping him causes him to untap....

Thousand-Year Elixir - Gives Brion haste and an untap.

Aetherflux Reservoir - 50cal Sniper Rifle to the face anyone?

Enchantments

Damage doublers can be recommended but i usually avoid the symettrical ones from personal preference. One or two effects that give Haste might be good too. Other effects however

Flameshadow Conjuring - Copy up our faties for good ETB triggers, effective haste or extra copies to throw with Brion.

Sigil of the New Dawn - Recur everything!

Marshal's Anthem - Decent mass resurrect in white. Though a little mana intensive

Angelic Renewal - One time use recursion of a creature

Goblin Bombardment - Backup sacrifice effects for all our threatens. WE don't want to have to give their toys back do we?
