Kor Firewalker Discussion
4 hours ago
I disagree with Yosif, Thalia for example is hard to deal with for combo decks. Against aggro decks Path to Exile is great and you can bring in some sideboard cards with lifegain like Kor Firewalker, Pride Guardian, Phyrexian Unlife and Fiendslayer Paladin.

I know Sphere of Safety is potentially a bigger barrier with all of the enchantments you run, but the fact that Ghostly Prison comes down much earlier and is better without other enchantments on the field seems very relevant. Ajani Goldmane seems like he could be an absolute house in this deck as maybe a 2 of in place of Felidar Sovereign. Secure the Wastes or good old Raise the Alarm could be nice siebaord cards against aggro strategies and work with your token theme as well as having excellent synergy with Ajani's Welcome. Mana Tithe could be hilarious sideboard tech game two when opponents board in enchantment hate. Mirran Crusader and Kor Firewalker are strong sideboard options as well.

Seems a nice deck, but I would like to make some sugestions.
First of all I'd change the format (divide cards for type: land, creatures, ecc, instead of white and non-white)
Then, why not things like Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Martyr of Sands, Serra Ascendant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Oblivion Ring, Ranger of Eos, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Worship, Flickerwisp, Aven Mindcensor, Squadron Hawk
Last thing, you definitely need a sideboard. Some suggestions could be: Stony Silence, Leyline of Sanctity, Rest in Peace, Kataki, War's Wage, Kor Firewalker, Brave the Elements, Disenchant, Proclamation of Rebirth

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.
I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.
Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.

What's your thoughts on Phyrexian Unlife as a sideboard card against the mirror match? There's a particular ruling I came across when looking it up:
"Phyrexian Unlife won’t affect damage that reduces your life total from a positive number to 0 or less. For example, if you’re at 3 life and are dealt 5 damage, you’ll end up at -2 life. The next time you’re dealt damage, it will be dealt as though its source had infect." -Gatherer
This means for 3 mana you can effectively gain 10 or more life without getting wrecked by a Skullcrack. Also if you're up against Ad Nauseum decks they'd have to resolve a second Lightning Storm just to deal lethal damage as the first Lightning Storm wouldn't be able to apply poison counters.
Arguably I could see why Kor Firewalker would make a better substitute over the Phyrexian Unlife, yet the Unlife would likely net you more life gain than the Walker. Also the walker is dependent on red spells being cast whereas the Unlife's benefits aren't as conditional.

For humans, you really need to know how to play the matchup (I have been playing this deck for 5 months), and although they have ETBs, Eldrazi Displacer is one of your best cards in this matchup. You just have to be careful about your timing, and flicker everything before flickering a Champion of the Parish, or flicker everything after flickering Thalia's Lieutenant.
I might also advise a pair of Auriok Champion instead of the Kor Firewalker and Kataki, War's Wage. I also think that you could use another Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Gideon is just a powerhouse in almost all midrange and control matchups, and Kambal makes burn a good matchup.

Koth of the Hammer would be a great mana ramp, however if you're going to go that route (including Simian Spirit Guides) then you're closing in on traditional Skred. There's nothing wrong with traditional Skred, but you said you wanted to specifically stay dragons Julesreddragon. Also, be careful with Simian Spirit Guides. In decks that want to be explosive, it's great. Dragons, however, are not. Simian Spirit Guide operate in three ways, mana ability early (great), a 2/2 vanilla creature for three mana (bad), or be a dead card in your hand (or topdecked) later in the game (bad). For this particular deck it isn't great 2/3 of the time. Decks that want to be more explosive early to control the game like mono-red prison can make use of the "bad" factors better as their control of the board doesn't take them out of the game for one bad topdeck. I would not recommend Simian Spirit Guide in this build. I would argue that another creature removal spell would be better to control the board more until you can get your threats.
furrycombatwombat - In playing traditional Skred as long as I have, I can say that Scrying Sheets has been a factor very often. I also play big spells similar to dragons, so even then I can say that trying to filter further for an answer is helpful. We seem to disagree on this card, which is fine. Julesreddragon you haven't seemed to care for it, so by all means playtest something different. A late game land that has helped me (occasionally) is Mouth of Ronom. It is colorless damage for Etched Champions and pro-red creatures (Kor Firewalker, Burrenton Forge-Tender). You can see if that is something that helps you more.
I would not take the Relic of Progenitus out of your mainboard unless they have done nothing to help. Graveyard hate is very relevant in modern, even in a blind matchup. At worst, it is a two mana cantrip which can be helpful. However, if they're not helpful, then upping your Blood Moon, Mind Stone, and Skred count would be what I would recommend.

Lingering Souls is too good not to be played. You may need chump blockers vs. big dragons or other aerial attacks and you lack that capability otherwise.
Worship is a funny way to win. You might want to have one.
Blade Splicer seems pretty good.
