Moltensteel Dragon Discussion

Wurmlover on DragonQuest

I would definitely pick up Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, and Moltensteel Dragon. it is a turn 6 instant kill combo in 1v1. you pay 4 to activate scion twice, let the first one resolve, turn it into moltensteel dragon. Then you pay 6 times, giveing it +6/+0. Then let the other one resolve, turn into a 10/4 skytherix, hit for 10 infect. the best mart is that this can all be done at instant speed, so you can do it after no blocks are declared.

I suggest playing Moltensteel Dragon and Purphoros, God of the Forge, both work extremely well with Neheb in play.

Honestly this seems like a pretty good deck right now. There's some fat that you can trim from the deck so I'll list some of those cards. Beyond that, I would try to make some more room for more dragons if you want to stick to a dragon theme. Right now, you only have 17 dragons. Though since you can tutor them out with your commander, maybe that's enough!

Zombify: Use Unburial Rites instead. Basically the same thing, but you get two uses out of it.

Dragonstorm: I personally don't think this card is worth it, but it's up to you. Seems too expensive for the effect you're getting, and I doubt you'll be able to reliably storm for any more than just one dragon in this deck.

Dragon Shadow: Too low power, doesn't do enough in my opinion.

Thought Vessel: You're not drawing too many cards in this deck, I doubt you'll be getting use out of its secondary effect any time soon. It's better if you run ramp that can fix your colors.

Ryusei, the Falling Star: Dragon that is too narrow / too low-impact in my opinion.

Kilnmouth Dragon: Takes too many things going correctly for you for this card to be useful at all in your deck. Also does not really have strong synergy with your commander.

Steel Hellkite: Dragon that removes problem cards for you. Great utility card, can go in many decks.

Animate Dead: Classic reanimation spell, very good at getting stuff out of any graveyard.

Living Death: Pricy card, but it's absurd. Especially when you can craft your graveyard so carefully like you can with your deck! Will outright win you the game if you play accordingly with this card.

Moltensteel Dragon: Looks like you took this card out of your deck? I would put it back in, it can surprise kill someone out of nowhere.

Dragon Tyrant: Another card that can surprise kill people

Dragon Mage: Draws you cards when you're running low on gas.

i would suggest the following:

these cards are really slow, Burning-Tree Emissary, Flameblast Dragon, Myojin of Infinite Rage, Savage Ventmaw, Infernal Plunge, Banefire, Kodama's Reach,

try adding Slumbering Dragon,Dragonmaster Outcast, Dragon Egg, Dragon Tempest, Thunderbreak Regent, Metallic Mimic, Blessings of Nature, Moltensteel Dragon,

you also need 23+ lands, try looking for dual lands it is really good.. get check/pain lands they are relatively cheap as well. =)Birds of Paradise best ramp in your deck. if you can't afford it try

So if you want to be a GR Dragons deck you are better off being some sort of midrange deck that leans on mana dorks to power out stuff like Thunderbreak Regent. Not a sort of ramp deck like this as the dragons you ramp into are generally lackluster? Right now any kind of disruption, like a counterspell or the basic removal you see in Modern breaks your deck and you will struggle to ramp into your 6-7-10 drops.

I would suggest cribbing some notes from R/G Ponza. They run Arbor Elf and Birds of Paradise as their 6 mana dorks to synergise with Utopia Sprawl as a way to power stuff out, as opposed to this 2 card make 4 mana combo that dies to Remand.

For dragons, the ones you should be playing in my opinion are Thunderbreak Regent, Stormbreath Dragon / Thundermaw Hellkite, maybe even Moltensteel Dragon.

You also need some way to interact with the board besides Mizz. I would personally suggest either Mizz and Lightning Bolt or Anger of the Gods in place of Mizz.

Kokusho, the Evening Star is extremely cheap right now, and within your price range at least where I get my cards online,due to a reprint. If youre using recursion effects I would strongly recommend purchasing him before he goes up again.

Also, dont forget about the Worldgorger Dragon and Animate Dead combo. Im guessing you do know about it as both are in your deck, but I wasnt sure. Overall it looks great!

Also im not sure if your wincons in your description work if youre using Scion for them. After you change him the first time he loses the change ability for the end of the turn. Which is unfortunately why the Moltensteel Dragon and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon dont work.

my favorite combo is Scourge of the Throne + Dragon Tempest + Utvara Hellkite. Add Scourge of Valkas to double the etb damage triggers and double the lols.

Breath of Fury is a good budget replacement for Scourge of the Throne.

also, if you end up running Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander, Moltensteel Dragon + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is another awesome dragon combo and Dragon Tyrant is a good budget/back-up replacement for skittles.
