Mana-Charged Dragon Discussion

sub780lime on Zirilan Dragon, Dragon, Dragon, Death Deck

2 weeks ago

Had an interesting 1v1 play-through on this against an Edgar deck. That deck would probably run all over this one 8/10 times.

I had Stormbreath Dragon (not monstrous), Glorybringer and Zirilan of the Claw out. I had Glorybringer up a few turns and had exerted to clear some of the board by pinging and had kept things locked down with AEther Flash . My opponent had just tutored for Austere Command , but couldn't cast it on their turn. They had one creature untapped on their side and they were sitting at 30 life. I was sitting on 6 mana and had Final Fortune in my hand.

I tapped 3 and Zirilan to tutor out Tyrant's Familiar and swung. Tyrant's Familiar dealt with the one blocker and allowed all three to get through for 15 (after Tyrant's Familiar added +2/+2). In my second main phase I use the Final Fortune with my remaining 3 mana. After untapping, I tutor again with Zirilan of the Claw and go get Mana-Charged Dragon . With my remaining three mana I add +2/+0 to the Mana-Charged Dragon and I am able to swing for another 15, taking my appointment out.

This is exactly what this deck is designed to do - tutor for answers and a wincon. I don't think it will work often and it will struggle even more in multiplayer, but in 1v1, it is fun. I need to play test some more.

I don't think Rhythm is worth a spot in here, seems like a redundancy that's not needed due to your commander.

As for growth spiral, I would look at maybe Roar of the Crowd or Cancel . Roar seems like it has a high CMC for what it does, especially when you're likely to chose dragons. Since they have such a high CMC you're unlikely to have enough out to make it worth running over another stronger burn card, such as Comet Storm or such.

As far as other adjustments, I would try and make the following swaps:

Cancel for Voidslime

Hedron Archive for Worn Powerstone

Spell Rupture for Negate (most things you want to counter will be noncreature spells)

Mana-Charged Dragon for Stormbreath Dragon

+1 from me, I like dragon decks.

loricatuslupus on HEAVENLY INFERNO - Kaalia of the Vast UPGRADE

Always nice to see another Kaalia deck as she was my first (shameless plug: Still Better than Dan Brown...). Firstly, is that "sideboard" in fact meant to be your wants list? If so, just make your acquireboard public to avoid any confusion! Anyway I'd recommend losing Ancient Hellkite, Mana-Charged Dragon and Victory's Herald. Consider Angelic Field Marshal/Demon of Wailing Agonies/Tyrant's Familiar as you'll usually be getting them out with Kaalia. Speaking of, if you want to stop her getting munched take a look at Dust Corona and Reconnaissance, either of which might be better than Angelic Chorus or Exquisite Blood - good cards, but 5cmc is the spot where you can start thinking about hard-casting creatures and you don't really seem to have any synergistic plays with gaining life (perhaps introduce Krav, the Unredeemed/Regna, the Redeemer combo?). If you can upgrade your package to include Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate over cards like Wrecking Ball then do: unconditional removal is never a dead draw. Finally, Helm of the Host is epic with Kaalia.

Ps, I see you run Armageddon. Depending on who you play with, I would recommend either going all-in on the land destruction by getting more mana rocks and other spells like Cataclysm or dropping it entirely. It can make you very unpopular...

Since its easier to kill creatures than anything I stay away from cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman. I'd replace it with a mana rock.

Gratuitous Violence doubles all your creature damage, even non-combat damage.

Mana-Charged Dragon should be in here (maybe instead of Spawn of Thraxes?).

You have a ton of pumpable creatures so... Braid of Fire. Pump them during upkeep with free mana. My Purphoros / dragon deck kills people with Dragon Hatchling sometimes.

@Composer2000 Just checked out some of your work...Nice job!

I really enjoyed the emotion captured in Knight Exemplar that regal preparation for battle feel and the embodiment of bolstering fellow knights in a test of bravery/courage.

Mana-Charged Dragon has a really awesome [email protected]$$ feel going on that i think totally fits the cards art as well as a growing and unstoppable force of destruction.

I look forward to seeing what else you come up with. Great work keep it coming!

Saw your comment in the deck advertiser. It did not fall on deaf ears.

This seems like a fun base. So here are a couple ways to make it fierce.

1) 2011 Vows- Vow of Lightning, Vow of Duty, Vow of Malice. All help "take down" your opponents' biggest threats.

2) Curses- more misdirection could be Curse of Vitality or Curse of the Forsaken. Overwhelming Splendor might be an okay game ender, and a lot of other curses are fun and worth checking out, but I'm not gonna bother listing all of them here. Look them up on the gatherer.

3) Join Forces and Tempting Offers- Tempt with Immortality, Tempt with Vengeance, Mana-Charged Dragon, and Alliance of Arms could be really fun. Giving people things makes them like you.

Also a fun idea: Blazing Archon. Neither competitive nor hard to remove, but if your opponent doesn't have the stuff, it is the worst/best.
