Nesting Dragon Discussion

Hc_Clan on Discarding Dragon Specters

I'm a fan of Nesting Dragon, I like how the tokens become stronger after a boardwipe. You've also reminded me that I need to put Dream Salvage in my deck. I do agree with some of the other comments about Nekusar. If you purely want to win with wheels, Nekusar is the best commander for it. But I'm a big fan of Crosis and like to see him taking the helm.

As far as suggestions, I'd highly recommend Geth's Grimoire. You can never have too much card draw.

Hc_Clan My meta sounds pretty similar to yours, and that one of the issues I was trying to solve, how to get value out of cards before they get removed. I do play against a Hivelord sliver deck, a narset, an alesha stax combo, and other similar either lockdown decks or exile all your fun stuff decks. However our meta has enough different decks where no one deck is the most powerful.

I'll share my deck link, but also I'll give some of my favorite dragons.( Discarding Dragon Specters )Dragon Mage + Nesting Dragon + Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Thunderbreak Regent are probably my favorite dragon cards. I run a large amount of wheels in my deck to try to get reoccurring value from Megrim + Liliana's Caress and the like. Most of my other dragons are the token creator ones for more value if they can stay on the field. Usually the token creating ones receive the most hate--which allows me to plop down a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and wheel 5 times and close the game out.

Hopefully this help!

Well, to be honest I haven't actually built the deck in paper, yet! (General info) But I have been testing it in an app called Forge, basically 1v1 anything. While this doesn't give me multiplayer results as to win percentages, it does let me know that the deck works on a basic level. That being said my playgroup consistently has 4-6 players as well.

As for having the very few basics I've kinda wanted to add more, I just kinda haven't, but under certain conditions I find the Fetchlands useful even if I run out. I'm not sure if I really NEED all the off color fetches however so that can be adjusted later.

If I can bring the fetchlands back from the graveyard with Crucible of Worlds effects after use I can always play a Chromatic Lantern or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so they tap for mana. BUT along with that, even if they don't tap for mana Landfall triggers from Nesting Dragon, Avenger of Zendikar, and others are amazing even at the expense of 1 damage.

I still think I may add a few more basics just in case (two triggers are better than one) but being able to fetch shocklands and bicycling lands helps as well so I technically have about 13 (I think) targets.

Avenger of Zendikar, Splendid Reclamation, Scapeshift are really good for omnath and i agree take advantage of the land ramp Traverse the Outlands, World Shaper and Nesting Dragon are really good too. good luck to you my red green deck is one of my favorite to play and focuses a lot on land also check it out you might get some ideas on a lot of other cards to think about BAD LANDS

Nesting Dragon should really be in the deck since each land gives you two Eggs which become four Dragons, or if you have both Parallel Lives and Doubling Season, four Eggs which become sixteen Dragons.

Some stuff to sacrifice the tokens like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Viscera Seer, Altar of Dementia, Greater Good, Attrition, Emrakul's Evangel, or Descent of the Dragons could be pretty good. Pitiless Plunderer also gives more mana whenever your creatures or tokens die.

If you're running Doubling Season, Realm Seekers becomes even bigger (and is already useful to find important lands). Path of Discovery will also make your creatures even bigger or draw you more lands. Eternity Vessel would also double your life and make you very hard to kill. You could try planeswalkers like Liliana Vess, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Nissa, Genesis Mage, Nissa, Vital Force, Xenagos, the Reveler, and Chandra, Flamecaller for their abilities and ultimates.

Jdrawer Not a lot. Other than Lord Windgrace, he only keeps 27 cards from the precon. 3 creatures (Avenger of Zendikar, Nesting Dragon, and Rampaging Baloths), 1 artifact (Sol Ring obviously), 2 instants (Harrow and Windgrace's Judgment), 2 sorceries (Decimate and Worm Harvest), and 19 lands (10 of which are basic).

Phaetion on Gone with the Windgrace *Primer*

2 months ago

KongMing: I'm surprised as well, and yes, that name and art was perfect. I never read the book, so it was fun picking out quotes online and using them for the primer. Thank you so much again. :D

DaMaster545: You raise a good point. I never drew into the Amulet though, but I can slot a 1-drop instead and test it.

BaceJeleren: As much as I can see the error in adding Aggressive Mining, I'm hesitant on removing 4-drops outside of another one because it messes up my curve. Horn of Greed has been great. We'll get more out of it than our opponents will and now Nissa, Vital Force is gone, it has to stay there. Seismic Assault works with Borborygmos Enraged (who also works with The Gitrog Monster. Fun fact) but in a pinch, it can act as removal.

Gaea's Blessing, I agree with. It's arguably the weakest card in the deck. I might remove it if it does screw me over. Nesting Dragon has been ok. It's nice wrath insurance should the eggs kick the bucket, and a good way to recover.
