Maelstrom Nexus


The first spell you cast each turn has cascade. (When you cast your first spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order.)

I think Maelstrom Nexus would be a good addition to the deck.

Today I was researching a little bit and found out some interesting cards in other Ur-Dragon builds: Animar, Soul of Elements, Deathrite Shaman, Maelstrom Nexus - could you give your opinion about those cards?

My another question is - are Dromoka, the Eternal, Glorybringer and Yosei, the Morning Star worth giving a shot? Because to me they seem to be too underwhelming but maybe you have some points for them from your playing experience :)

Hope I don't spam too much with these questions, I'm just building similar deck and I'd like to know more about my favourite tribal :D

Adam_Dills: Thanks for the suggestions and the upvote! I hadn't thought about Blazing Archon, but it certainly could work and I'll do some playtesting. Fist of Suns is also probably a good idea. Maelstrom Nexus is a stretch, but mostly because it usually gets me small things. I had Maelstrom Wanderer in here for a while but it never hit big things. Also trying to keep the deck under $400.

Gotta be redundant. Play a Fist of Suns Its one mana cheaper to cast than Jodah and can be cast for 3 colorless mana. If Jodah gets killed, which he likely will, you have a backup that wont cost 6+ mana. You get my +1 for playing my favorite card being Tempt with Discovery. Might not be good but I am a big fan of Maelstrom Nexus. Also there are some decks that just cant beat a Blazing Archon

Love the old Ripper.. Have my own deck with him. I can definitely recommend Scarecrone.. It might lead you to run some additional Scarecrows, since it provides so much. Also if you're looking for more changelings you might consider adding Taurean Mauler. I also really like Maelstrom Nexus in this deck since you can cast your general for 5 mana, while he has a CMC of 10, and thus will cascade for 9 or less. Also coupled it with some of the Bringers, specifically Bringer of the Blue Dawn for draw, Bringer of the Black Dawn for tutor and Bringer of the White Dawn to recycle artifacts. If you're running 5 colors anyway, you might as well, right? ;)

Lastly, if you're here to lose friends, casting Rite of Replication on the Reaper King himself is also very good for that. You only get to keep one, but before that happens, you'll have 5 Reaper Kings seeing 4 other scarecrows enter the battlefield, and one seeing all 5 enter, so it will shoot 25 permanents right there and then. Ends up being the same number as the battlesphere, but you don't need Conspiracy in play for it.
