Moltensteel Dragon Discussion

KrimsonWolf on Dragon Commander

I added Moltensteel Dragon and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon which allow for an even faster win combo with less random fluctuation:

  1. any fast land + Sol Ring
  2. any fast "red" land + Dragon Tempest
  3. any fast land + Chromatic Lantern (this is why color didn't matter for the lands you played, except the 1 red) tap Chromatic Lantern immediately for Training Grounds
  4. any fast land + Scion of the Ur-Dragon + use 4 lands + Chromatic lantern for scion, this leaves 2 mana to activate Scion's ability twice thanks to Training Grounds reducing the cost. Since you cast Dragon Tempest you now have haste, so first transform into Moltensteel Dragon and sac 6 life to become +6/+0 then become Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon to add infect...10 infect damage, game over. If they happen to block you can revert to the Hellkite Charger Savage Ventmaw combo for infinite attacks, and bring your dragons back from the grave, or use Utvara Hellkite to produce tokens.

Well I think this as broken as I can make it with out adding Hermit Druid. I have the Moltensteel Dragon Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon combo AKA Molter Skittles. Hellkite Charger Bear Umbra combo AKA Hover Bear. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Curiosity combo AKA Curios Mind.And last but not least... The Big Sho!! Kokusho, the Evening Star Splinter Twin Intruder AlarmAlso in raw bruit strength its just awesome

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.
