DRAGONLORDkolghan2 on Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Wait, once scion of the ur dragon becomes a copy of a dragon, it loses the ability to change dragons. Then that means you can't tutor up Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon in response to the Moltensteel Dragon ability.

Commander is not exactly a format in which you are looking to get rid of your 40 life as fast as possible. I think you could build aggro or something that hits your opponents symmetrically (I.e. Heartless Hidetsugu), but the style of play you are striving for is just going to leave you at a low life total with not enough resources to close out the game.

If your still set on doing this, here's my thoughts...You could use things Tree of Redemption, Moltensteel Dragon, or Shaman of Forgotten Ways to make Death's Shadow more viable and your life total lower. Your best bet at consistency for this style of play would probably be a Birthing Pod-centered deck. As for a late game plan maybe include a few big creatures along with a combo that uses Aluren.

I understand how the various Moltensteel Dragon + (something) combos work. I'm the one who explained it earlier to the people who didn't think they worked. ;)

I would also cut Vial Smasher and Scourge of Kher Ridges for Moltensteel Dragonand Dragonlord Dromoka. It's a lethal one-two punch at full/near full life: 1). Activate Scion twice; let the first activation resolve, hold priority and grab Moltensteel paying Up to 32 life and or some extra red mana boosting Scion to 21 power. 2). Let the Second activation resolve, grab Dromoka. Bam, potential lethal damage with lifelink to regain what you paid even if Scion is blocked.

Personally they way I have made my Scion of the Ur-Dragon wasnt like yours, which isnt a bad thing, just diffrent. I hardly ever found myself turning Scion into cards like Nicol Bolas or Dragon Tyrant and I didnt want to put in things like Hellkite Charger since I hardly had mana left over after casting. I have also found that my deck is ONLY multiplayer friendly, and single player takes to long to set up before my opponents. I like your land base though, I dont have any of the shock lands to put in is why im lacking.

I tried to go more for mana ramp, Tutors, and hard casting since things like the Moltensteel Dragon and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon combo doesnt work. However Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind+Curiosity goes for a limited infinite draw and damage.

I would also recommend getting cards that cheat things in like Dragon Arch, Quicksilver Amulet, and Maelstrom Archangel or Kaalia of the Vast if you have the money. Also cards like Dragonlord's Servant and Urza's Incubator help with your cmc.

Nice deck man, I'm currently play-testing it and I've found a few problems

There's no Plains so with Terramorphic Expanse and Rampant Growth I can't get a source for

The deck killed pretty fast when I 1v0 tested it, however I was having a hard time drawing creatures. I actually never drew a dragon or a spell to get a dragon until I had enough mana to play Scion.

I'll playtest it again later but I'm actually supposed to be taking a test right now. So I'll leave some suggestion cards if you want to add them in.

Dragon Arch

Moltensteel Dragon + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (Scion's ability for Moltensteel Dragon, activate ability 6 times, switch to Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, swing for 10 infect)

Chromatic Lantern if you give up on the under $35

Any other tutor cards

Mana-Charged Dragon if you like Politics.
