Moltensteel Dragon Discussion

Yes, I'm aware of the Moltensteel-Skithyrix interaction. I've even had to explain it multiple times in the comments here to people who didn't understand how it works. ;)
The main reason I don't play Moltensteel Dragon is because I think it's too cheesy, but maybe I should have it in here just in case. I haven't played Commander in several months, and it's been even longer since I last shuffled up this deck, so I haven't put much thought into it recently.

I noticed that you don't run with Moltensteel Dragon and it is in your side board. I used to run Scion but I got bored and molten steel can be absolutely devastating. Just an exampleLet's say you attack with scion and he's flying so your opponent couldn't block. Before damage is assigned use scion's ability and turn him into moltensteel dragon. Use molten's ability by paying 12 life to get +6/+0 until end of turn. Then once more use scion's ability and have it become skithiryx and even though it transformed you still have the counters and now you just hit them for 10 infect

No I don't think that is right. Commander Damage depends on the name of you Commander. If Scion of the Ur-Dragon deals 21 damage as a Moltensteel Dragon your Opponent won't die. So this is like we played the whole time.

That works because Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is still the same card. For example, Scion of the Ur-Dragon is my Commander regardless of what name he takes. So, if I make him Moltensteel Dragon, pay life to pump him to 21 attack and he swings, my opponent dies to Commander Damage because Scion is my Commander. Being Commander is a trait of the actual card, not the name of the card.

Card draw is always a good thing, and any deck with can run my most hated card, Rhystic Study. Other draw I'm fond of includes Mystic Remora, Elemental Bond, Lifecrafter's Bestiary and with Surak going for creatures Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest might work ok. Some Artifact ramp (The Signets, Commander's Sphere, stuff like that) is always good, same with Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, and Explosive Vegetation would go nice given the number of basics you wont run out of targets, ramp away to cast the fatties. With the access comes the oh so lovely counters. Stuff like Negate, Counterspell, Faerie Trickery, Arcane Denial work well and don't cost a ton of $$. As for creatures, I'm not much of a Dragon guy but I've always like Archwing Dragon for some reason, and Moltensteel Dragon can smash face for a LOT of damage and Utvara Hellkite can get NUTS in a dragon tribal deck. Some non-dragons for your consideration are Acidic Slime, Somberwald Sage, Trygon Predator, and a personal favorite Conduit of Ruin. Might suggest cutting down on the lands a bit, usually EDH decks have around 36-38 lands, 40 is a bit much (unless its an Azusa or Omnomnom deck, then its a tad too few) here.

That sounds good, I'll go ahead and initiate this trade.
I also saw some other cards in your binder that I was interested in. For simplicity's sake, we could treat them as two separate deals, but ship them out together?
Would you do...
- 4x Leonin Arbiter ($1.50) = $6.00
- 2x Molten Rain ($0.50) = $1.00
- 1x Sunken Hollow ($2.00)
- 1x Cinder Glade ($2.00)
- 1x High Market ($0.50)
- 1x Moltensteel Dragon F ($0.50)
- 1x Zuran Orb ($0.50)
- 1x Blossoming Sands F ($0.25)
- 1x Cranial Plating ($0.25)

MrAwesomeSocks: Those suggestions are hilarious and I might just have to make room for one or both. I took a look at your deck and I love it. I'm super jealous you have the original duals and such. I wanted to take this to a more competitive level but at the time no one in my playgroup had anything seriously competitive. I might make some improvements to it now though. Thanks for the feedback!
Squirrel_of_War: I know it's such a shame!!! This deck was a long time coming. I looked at the fetches for weeks but finally decided since all 10 foils would've run me over $700 at the time (this was before the expeditions were spoiled) I just couldn't bring myself to do it. surprisingly the deck didn't cost nearly what it's worth now when first putting it together especially Cavern of Souls. Maybe I'll pull foil fetches in the new Modern Masters then I'll feel obligated to get then all.
waffledevouror: Normally activating Scion's ability is a one time thing since he loses his ability to change again. However, If you activate it then, while it's still on the stack, you activate it again, you search for Moltensteel Dragon when the first one resolves and pump scion then the second ability resolves turning him into a 10/4 Skittles.
