Moltensteel Dragon Discussion

legomanalec on Scion is Dragons

4 weeks ago

I'm surprised you didn't put in the Moltensteel Dragon + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Combo. Its an instant win. You could also put in Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity for another instakill combo!Also Living Death Is a great card because you will have so many dragons in your graveyard from scions ability, why not bring them all back?Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw would give you infinite attack phases. Personally I like to put a bunch of ramp in the deck because a 5 drop Rainbow commander can be tough to get out. (sorry for so many suggestions)I also feel Thran Foundry and Elixir of Immortality are good cards because you don't want your graveyard to just be a pile of dragons.

Yeah. You can change it in to Moltensteel Dragon, activate how ever many instances of fire-breathing that you need, and then in response change to skithiryx so that the fire-breathing ability is still on the stack.

@Kevinpetsca, what wackspoetic is saying is that you can tutor and throw Moltensteel Dragon into the grave, pay life to get its power above 10, then tutor and pitch Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (it still retains the +1/+0 from moltensteel), and ultimately swing for 10 infect and gg

If you're running Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon you gotta run Moltensteel Dragon for the phyrexian firebreathing so you can one-shot someone out of nowhere.

DemonDragonJ on Iconic Masters Announced

2 months ago

Eladamri's Call and Cromat have never been reprinted, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, and Worldly Tutor also should be here, as well, since it was left out of Eternal Masters in favor of Green Sun's Zenith.

As for iconic creatures, my predictions are as follows:

Angels: it is very safe to presume that both Serra Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath shall be in this set, hopefully, with new artwork for both, and I also would like to see Angelic Arbiter, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Jubilation, Pristine Angel, Iridescent Angel, Crypt Angel, Desolation Angel, Angel of Despair, Empyrial Archangel, and Archangel of Thune.

Demons: Lord of the Pit is one of the most iconic demons in the game, but some other excellent choices are Abyssal Persecutor, Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon, Butcher of the Horde, Grinning Demon, Havoc Demon, Herald of Torment, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Kuro, Pitlord, Lord of the Void, and Xathrid Demon.

Sphinxes: it was not until recently that sphinxes started to become powerful and efficient, but, thankfully, there ave been a number of excellent sphinxes made, recently, including Consecrated Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx, Goliath Sphinx, Guardian of Tazeem, Medomai the Ageless, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, and Sphinx of Uthuun.

Hydras: as with sphinxes, hydras only recently have been well-designed creatures, so some hydras that I would like to see in this set are Apocalypse Hydra, Domesticated Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Kalonian Hydra, Khalni Hydra, Managorger Hydra, Primordial Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, and Vastwood Hydra.

Dragons: there are too many dragons for me too list all of them, but it is safe to presume that Shivan Dragon shall be in this set, hopefully with new artwork, and some of my top choices are Moonveil Dragon, Balefire Dragon, Dragon Tyrant, Ebon Dragon, Mirrorwing Dragon, Moltensteel Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Stormbreath Dragon, Two-Headed Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Vampiric Dragon, Viashivan Dragon, and Hellkite Overlord.

Wow, I certainly typed many card names in this post: I hope that I did not miss any. enter image description here

Well, if you're talking real budget then how about adding Moltensteel Dragon instead of pain lands or some shock lands to purposefully get yourself low by pumping it, then dropping a D shadow.

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
