Draknoz on The Ur-Dragon (Commander 2017 Upgrade)

I recommend some board wipes and spot removal. You need to have answers for creature hate enchantments and artifacts. Also if a board goes wide like elves, a wipe will help.Here are some cards:

Nevinyrral's Disk

Anguished Unmaking

Beast Within

Utter End


Merciless Eviction

I also know Dragons get a lot of value from recursion engines. One dragon costs more than one recursion spell so they are high value cards. This is more preference but the precon has some you might want to put in.

Unburial Rites

Ever After

Living Death

Fearsome Awakening

dlamars Did I hear Impact Tremors!? I think it's perfect for the deck (and a pet card of mine), I'll add it in asap!

I just traded my Living Death away, agh. I'll add in Phyrexian Reclamation, however. I agree that the deck feels a little too light on recursion.

I know I can maybe trade for an Anointed Procession, if not I may just get it later. Same goes with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

shaftdiggity I was thinking of adding Blood Seeker for more life drain too. I have Throne of the God-Pharaoh in another deck of mine, so probably not gonna add it in since I like variety in my decks haha.

I'm personally against French vanilla creatures in EDH as they're low-impact (that's why no Nighthawk) imo. However, Edgar's ability triggers whenever you cast a vampire, so I may reconsider the cheaper vampires to maximize his ability.

LVL_666 Lmao I completely blanked over that. I was more of thinking of the title as a twist to "Who's your daddy now?" Since my friends joke about that sorta stuff. Quite a bit of my deck titles are like that, actually haha. Hope you enjoy watching this deck grow as much as I will!

Hey, the deck looks good here's a few suggestions:

Gatekeeper of Malakir would probably be better than Go for the Throat. Innocent Blood and Small Pox aren't bad options either.

I think Impact Tremors and/or Purphoros, God of the Forge is good here especially paired with Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. Gets really crazy if you can splurge on a Cloudstone Curio.

You could probably use more resurrection effects like Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding and/or the budget friendly Phyrexian Reclamation.

Hope these help!

Casey4321: Throne of the God-Pharaoh seems like a good idea! Living Death seems like I can't bias it enough in my favor...Whip of Erebos is great, and I already have Patriarch's Bidding :)

Lythia: Malakir Cullblade is just bad tho...

Oh and a small suggestion for a resurrection suite.

Living Death

Patriarch's Bidding

Whip of Erebos

I made your deck, with a couple substitutions where I didn't have the cards. I found while playing that I was missing some of my favourite cards for the colour combo, such as Necropotence, Living Death, Cyclonic Rift, Notion Thief, Consecrated Sphinx, Polluted Delta, Rhystic Study, Dictate of Erebos, Nightveil Specter, Butcher of Malakir, Lightning Greaves and Grave Pact.

Do you see any way to put some of these in? What would you remove?

lilgiantrobot on Erebos, God of Discard

The thing about discard is that even if you're only hitting one person with it, everyone knows after that target you'll have to find another. Especially if you're basically running discard tribal. Thats just the drawback of the strategy, you're going to be archenemy (well, graveyard decks will love you). Its part of why mono-B isn't discard focused as much as multiple colors, where you get effects like Nath of the Gilt-Leaf.

Make everyone discard, have lots of ways to kill things they land and aim at you, and add in Living Death/Rise of the Dark Realms as a wincon. That seems to be the winning plan for mono-B discard.

xSKINCOLLECTORx haha no bullshit, I literally just cut him for Living Death....but before that, I would hit maybe 35% of the time, so not great, he was high on the chopping block...I also just cut Hanweir Battlements for Blood Crypt

Side note, I also just bought a Stoneforge Mystic and Blade of Selves for the deck.

Second side note...along with editing my decks, I should also not drink and online shop...
