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.

Since you're already played Snow-Mountains to support Rimescale Dragon, might I suggest Scrying Sheets ? It's a land that helps generate some extra value!

I think you could consider cutting one or two of the underwhelming higher costed dragons that you've found underwhelming for lower cost options such as Hoarding Dragon , who can also grab a Dragon's Hoard for flavor! It could also be worth trying Seething Song and Geosurge , which help you play big dragons sooner!

Happy brewing!

Hi McToters, thanks for great suggestions!

First of all, I really like Goblin Engineer . Don't know how have I missed that one. Recursion and tutor on one card seems great. I'm going to have to squeeze that in the deck.

Final Fortune looks fun and great for our casual meta. I'm gonna consider it.

I have considered both Daretti and Scrap Mastery , they are both in my private maybeboard and may come back later depending on what the deck struggles with.

Hoarding Dragon is 5 mana and the deck is already a bit more expensive than I'd like.

Glad you liked my list!

Regards, Sheld

Hey great list! Final Fortune is a personal favorite, and you’re already running Sundial of the Infinite so you wont lose the game on the extra turn when you activate it ;) Definitely not for every deck but something janky and fun to pull off in a casual atmosphere. Glorious End also contributes to keeping some tokens as well but not as good as Sundial. Hoarding Dragon is a not as good artifact tutor, but a great option for casual play. Maybe worth trying. The new Goblin Engineer could be nifty for this deck as well. Not sure if you struggle with card draw but Daretti, Scrap Savant could help in this regard and would contribute to Goblin Engineer ’s handiness. Same with Scrap Mastery . It would add some graveyard recursion overall which I’m not sure you would want to bring the deck that way. It does add artifact synergy though since you are running so many.

Anyway, love me some Valduk! The Sundial combo is one of the coolest ones in Magic IMO. +1

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.

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.
