Moonveil Dragon Discussion
3 days ago
For the time being the deck doesn't have a focus. But as I play with it more I will begin to focus it towards a specific playstyle. Also I have put in abd taken out Moonveil Dragon repeatedly.

Hey, I'm back again.
As for your Dragons, I think it's best you go for 4 Utvara Hellkite since I think you're going for the token gimmick with Parallel Lives. I would also add more Dragonmaster Outcast. Another suggestion for tokens would be Dragon Broodmother, for ya know, token making speed.
So you need creature space now huh? I would remove the other dragons, that don't fit quite well with the token gimmick. This includes: Dragonlord Atarka,Glorybringer,Mirrorwing Dragon,Moonveil Dragon,Rimescale Dragon, and Skyship Stalker.
I hope I didn't distance too far from your original mechanic in this deck, and I hope it wasn't too much to digest. If I had the cash, I too would play a dope dragon deck.

Thanks smiffdemon for the suggestions! I have looked over the deck and made some substitutions based on your advice. I will list the changes here so people know what I swapped out. Furyborn Hellkite for Kilnmouth Dragon, Drumhunter for Dragon Mage, Overwhelming Stampede for Xenagos, God of Revels, Moonveil Dragon for Moltensteel Dragon, Ryusei, the Falling Star for Stormbreath Dragon, and Sight of the Scalelords for Harmonize.

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.
Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense
Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Hello Valengeta first of all, your deck isnt modern legal because of Skullclamp.Then, you have 0 removals and 0 protection so a simple Pyroclasm can end your entire gameplan, i think you have too much noncreature spells and they cost maybe too much and you have no turn 1 mana ramp like Birds of Paradise.
Anyway with some changes this idea is not Bad :)

Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! You are completely right; it won't work! D': I'll have to update with another card that will work; thanks for catching that for me!
-- went with Renegade Tactics for now.
So many suggestions, thank you! :D
Because of the card draw combo with Mirrorwing I'm going to keep it in the mainboard, which works against the Avaricious / Rakdos combo. It's a good idea for later if I decided the Mirrorwing isn't working out for me, though.
Kiln is going to be super slow, even for a dragon, and I'm certainly considering the Moonveil Dragon in its place, but losing Crash Through makes it a bit less appealing, since my creatures can still end up blocked and Kiln simply doesn't care about that. Actually, no, you know what, yes, yes Moonveil is going in, because I don't have to rely on having other cards in my hand for it do its job like I do with Kiln. Reliability > power. Thank you. >: D
I considered the Stormbreath Dragon, but I don't have a really good place for it in the deck, sadly. I could fit it into the sideboard, but I'm not sure what to replace there, other than Burn from Within.
Predator Dragon has the ability to swoop in for a lot of damage, and possibly eat up dragons that are tied up by opponent effects and auras, but I generally don't think I'll have a lot of good targets for that in this deck -- it'd have to eat two creatures to make up for just the Regent. That said, the idea of the dragon eating a steel wall is just hiiiiiiiiiiilarious to me, I want you to know that.
Scourge of Valkas is awesome, and it really should make the core of this deck, but it is a bit on the pricey side for me if I want to pick up multiple copies and I don't know what to replace with it yet. This will be an easy upgrade to the deck later on, though. :D
I added Burn from Within to my sideboard for those people I know playing various Gods in their deck, but I'll have to think about the others a bit more -- it is 3 am and I need to head off to bed. :p
Thanks again for the suggestions, and for catching that mistake, Match. o_ o /

You have some solid picks but i'm going to suggest some stuff that i used when i had a mono red dragon deck, i hope they are worth to you.
If Semblance Anvil is being a bother to you in terms of exiling your good cards, why not Generator Servant? Sure, it's ramp instead of cost reduction, but it's an early creature, it functions as ramp and it gives haste to any dragons that don't have it. Oh yeah, if you wish to go a bit more hardcore: Seething Song is also good.
Crucible of Fire is a win more card imo. You already have Tempest dealing damage and dragons to eat your enemies, giving them +3/+3 is a waste of slots. i would put another Tempest and another Servant in place. Swiftspear could be replaced for something like Steel Wall for a big-ass defender in the early game and a helper for the Hellkite's alternate win condition in case you're playing against a friend with a lot of artifacts. I would take out Kilnmouth Dragon and put the Mirrorwing Dragons into the sideboard. Kiln is just too slow (believe me, i tried to use him a lot ever since i got 2 during Onslaught block and when i came back to the game years later) and Mirrorwing is best as a surprise for game 2 imo. Here are some suggestions of dragons for you:
- Moonveil Dragon: a 5/5 with a anthem-pump that is surprisingly strong.
- Stormbreath Dragon: You know what's annoying? That friend's Angel deck with Pacifism. This one gives the middle finger to white's dangerous enchantments and removal.
- Predator Dragon: My favorite modern dragon. It was my final beater most of the time. He wolfs down your tired monsters like tic tacs, gets a massive power boost and attacks on the turn it came out.
- Scourge of Valkas: Dragon Tempest's Father.
- Avaricious Dragon together with Rakdos Pit Dragon can be interesting. You get card draw and also a double striker that pumps.
Whew, that was a lot of stuff eh? Don't worry,i shall finish now with the last support cards that i would suggest:
- Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker: Guy who has a dragon boner and can become an indestructible dragon with haste.
- Banefire: Can be useful as a final burn spell and it has Sarkhan transforming his hands into a dragon.
- Sarkhan's Triumph: Dragon Tutor.
- Carbonize: Burn that stops regeneration and it exiles the victim.
- Burn from Within: I would put this one on the sideboard. Indestructible creatures deserve death too.
