FTWinchester on Lathliss, Dragon Queen [FTWinchester]

I took out Dragonlord's Servant for Herald's Horn because it does the same thing and also has occasional card advantage. I like Coat of Arms over Door of Destinies because you can hold on to Coat and use it like an Overrun. Plus Door of Destinies has a ramp up time and has the cast problem like Sarkhan's Unsealing. I've been thinking about taking out Dragonspeaker Shaman for another dragon. Since I already have a 2 cost reducer with Urza's Incubator. I have a Blade of Selves in my paper deck (idk why it isnt on here I'll have to double check my list) so thats why I run Spawn of Thraxes.

The biggest challenge so far with this deck is the lack of card draw. I have Wheel of Fortune in another deck but I don't think I want that type of effect because I don't have graveyard recursion. But everytime I've used Dragon Mage, he has over performed. I'm thinking about testing Howling Mine and Font of Mythos.

Other cards I'm brainstorming about: Feldon of the Third Path, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Goblin Welder, Combustible Gearhulk, Spit Flame, Knollspine Dragon, Mind's Eye.

Thanks for the suggestions, OZENOZENOZEN (no worries about the card-link)

Disciple of Bolas was in a previous build, but he came out for cards like Dragon Mage and Knollspine Dragon. The problem came from having creatures I just didn’t want to sacrifice. This is also why I removed Sidisi, Undead Visier.

Endless One gets huge in this deck, but that’s all, just huge. I ended up needing more than just huge. So, Walking Ballista took its spot.

I know the combo between those two cards is massive, I just ended up happier with cards like Dragon Mage+Void Winnower or Knollspine Dragon+Walking Ballista.

@ARAMbo, p0megranates, deakmana: I think what I don't like about stuff like Orcish Lumberjack and Root Maze and Dryad Arbor is the inconsistency. Sure, they're ok sometimes, but sometimes when you draw them later they're actually terrible.

I actually had Dryad Arbor (of course, right?) but I got so mad at how it was basically a mulligan everytime it was in my opening hand I dropped it. I think it events out. If it is in your opening hand, you've mulliganed; if GSZ is in your opening hand (and dryad arbor is in the library), then you don't have to mulligan. I think on balance you can just cut it. Then I traded Green Sun's Zenith for Natural Order, since the only targets for either are Manglehorn, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. So Natural Order is cheaper, generally.

Going to try Lodestone Golem as another hate bear / sphere effect. Dropped Knollspine Dragon since it has decreasing synergy with the stax plan and was becoming a win-more card. I feel like I need more stuff that can possibly interact with combos (such as The Gitrog Monster), so I'm swapping Shamanic Revelation for Lurking Predators in an effort to just flip Ruric Thar if someone starts to go off with Dramatic Scepter or something. Also should have strong value as a Green Mystic Remora. :)

PhyrexianWombat on Bladewing Commander(THIS CATCH’S YOUR ATTENTION)

Seems fun! Bladewing is a personal favorite creature of mine. I used him as my commander for a while myself.

I have a few suggestions, if you want: (Keep in mind, I'm a pretty noncompetitive and somewhat broke player)

Dragons: I've always liked Scourge of Kher Ridges. He clears out smaller creatures nicely, his mana cost is a bit high, of course you can always cheat him out from your graveyard though.

Hellkite Tyrant can often come in handy, if you want to get greedy and start snatching artifacts. (Who wouldn't, haha)

I'd also recommend Utvara Hellkite, he's an absolute MONSTER if not eliminated immediately. Once again, high mana cost, but once again, graveyard shenanigans, haha.

Balefire Dragon, Kokusho, the Evening Star, and Knollspine Dragon are good additions if a little more expensive.

I'd also like to mention that Rorix Bladewing and Shivan Dragon, while classic and awesome, are somewhat outshined by their newer counterparts Dragonlord Kolaghan and Moonveil Dragon.

Non-dragons: Anger's awesome if you can pitch him with something like Faithless Looting. (Another personal favorite.)

Buried Alive and the more expensive Entomb are awesome too.

As far as removal goes, I like Go for the Throat and Murderous Cut. Ooh, and Chaos Warp

A few more wraths might do some good, Blasphemous Act, Decree of Pain, Kindred Dominance, etc. Or the one I always wanted but could never afford, Damnation.

I'd also say that you might not need that many mana artifacts, though I always recommend Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus.

Geez that was longer than I expected, sorry.

Hey there, thanks for sharing your list.

I really like Archwing Dragon in this deck, I will need to add it into my list. Spawn of Thraxes also seems very reasonable and I also really like Hazoret's Monument and Vanquisher's Banner. I will need to check out a few of those for my deck lists.

A few cards that I might suggest cutting since they have always underperformed for me are Door of Destinies, Adaptive Automaton doesn't seem necessary since your dragons are plenty big, and Kindred Charge is really bad with legendary creatures so I would replace that one with World at War or Savage Beating. Dragon's Claw seems like a flavor inclusion, but it probably wont have much of impact.

A few things worth adding Knollspine Dragon, Spinerock Knoll, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Conjurer's Closet.

Anyway really enjoyed the list. I like that you got 28 creatures in yours, I only got about 20 in mine, but id like to get the creature count around 22-23. Let me know if you end up adopting any of these changes.

Cryptic Gateway seems incredibly good. On top of cheating creatures into play, it lets you cheat them into play at instant speed. Allows for plenty of tricks mid-combat with Scourge of Valkas, Panharmonicon, or even Knollspine Dragon. Allows you to cast Sandstone Oracle with Panharmonicon out, draw up to an opponent's hand size, cheat all the dragons from among them into play, then draw again. Can't beat that value.

Paradox Engine seems a little slow if you're only using it to untap your dragons; you might as well play Aggravated Assault.

Why Unclaimed Territory? It's strictly worse than a Mountain if you're only using it for one color. Also, why so many haste enablers? It's a powerful effect, but many of your dragons already have haste; cards like Mass Hysteria might accidentally help your opponents more than they help you.

Lastly, many of the dragons have ETB abilities, which you've capitalized on with Panharmonicon, Minion Reflector, and Flameshadow Conjuring. Why not Conjurer's Closet? Blinking your Scourge of Valkas every turn could be a lethal firestorm of damage, and a sky full of terrifying dragons. It could blink Knollspine Dragon to draw a ton of cards, or even just untap an exerted Glorybringer to let it attack again next turn.

Cool deck! Mask of Memory and Rogue's Gloves might be good ways to draw more in here. Knollspine Dragon too. Masterwork of Ingenuity might be rad as well. Two Helms of the Host? Don't mind if I do!

I must implore you to play Stonehewer Giant most of all, for he can fetch two equipment (which enter and auto-equip for a mere 2 mana) per turn thanks to Aurelia. He also has vigilance, meaning he can swing and fetch at the same dang time what what!!!

Other considerations might be Tithe and Mistveil Plains (for use with Sunforger), Elemental Mastery, Gratuitous Violence, True Conviction, and Ogre Battledriver.
