lagotripha on Bringer of Victory

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

Call to the Kindred , Preeminent Captain , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Incandescent Soulstoke , Summoner's Egg , Quest for Ula's Temple , Descendants' Path / Leaf-Crowned Elder , AEthermage's Touch , Fold into AEther , Braids, Conjurer Adept , Reason / Believe also works as topdeck control, Call of the Wild / Impromptu Raid , Thran Temporal Gateway Champion of Rhonas , Dubious Challenge , Neoform / Allosaurus Rider , Deathrender , Unexpected Results

Scroll Rack is not modern legal, just like Ponder or Preordain.

TypicalTimmy has some wisdom...
You can easily choose to build RG dragons, with descendant's path & some mana dorks - and if you go the Descendants' Path route, then the "shitty dragons" like Slumbering Dragon will be pretty viable for you. (and on the top end you can cheat in all kind of nonsense with your Guild Feud)

However if you want to build around this due to the playstyle (and not as a deckbuilding challenge), then i would encourage you to foresake it.
And play UG instead.
It has pretty much the same effect, and it has redundant copies of the effect in multiple modern legal cards.
Reason / Believe being one - that even has enabler attached to it. Of course there is also Impromptu Raid (extra value with cards like Woodfall Primus), or Call of the Wild if you want to keep the creature.
Both effects are enchantments - hence expecting them to survive is reasonable.
You have support cards like Summoning Trap, See the Unwritten, Sifter Wurm and the like that can be upside in certain situations. And of course you must play the mandatory U(g) scry effects like Serum Visions, Mystic Speculation, Nissa, Steward of Elements...etc.
If you add some mana dorks you have a deck.

Darth_Savage on infect U/Gb

You have a low curve, so you don't need 23 land, at the same time you have 62 cards in the deck, I'd suggest you cut the two Yavimaya Coast to bring you down to 60 cards. Still on the subject of lands, I'd add 2x Cathedral of War, unless you want to pay for Noble Hierarch, cut 2x of Windswept Heath to make the space. An infect deck isn't normally interested in interaction, it wants to deliver its 10 damage as quickly as possible, so Duress, Thoughtseize, and Dismember wouldn't normally be here. I'd also say Apostle's Blessing, is overkill, you already have 4x Blossoming Defense, that opens 5 slots. I'd suggest +1 Spellskite +2 Ichorclaw Myr and your choice of +2 Serum Visions, Mystic Speculation or Reason / Believe, they all fill a similar role, or Mission Briefing.

I wouldn't recommend Silent Gravestone when Grafdigger's Cage or Relic of Progenitus exist. I'm not sure you need to go 3 colours, but black would give you access to Plague Stinger. Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

First problem I see here is that you only have 42 cards. If you bring that to a tournament, you won't be able to play it because the minimum card count for your deck is 60 cards. I would add:

Merfolk Mistbinder, Forerunner of the Heralds, Deeproot Elite, Deeproot Waters, Strength of the Pack, Reason // Believe, Mist-Cloaked Herald and Seafloor Oracle.

Nahiri, the Harbinger can dump Reason // Believe in the grave if you need to, and she is another way to get emmy into play

Shane on Is this viable?

Reason / Believe, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Jace, the Mind Sculptor

Could a competitive deck be built around this?

SereneTsunami - Sword is not what the deck wants. We already have more than enough draw synergies.

Reason / Believe is really sweet. Nevertheless it's a filler here. Something else that can impact the board state or keep the synergy alive without dying is so vital. Reason / Believe just won't cut it in a ramp deck with 6 creatures to target.
