xcver on Sylvia & Khorvath - Mother of Dragons

So, landwise I do not like the Valakut, and would recommend either Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Flamekin Village or an Utility land like Buried Ruin. Also not a fan of Brave the Sands and Dowsing Dagger. just too cute for me. Still a fan of Scroll Rack when you play Land Tax though :)

Creaturewise I think Dragonmaster Outcast is just too low impact, also Moonveil Dragon and Skyship Stalker are a bit weak. Even though Dragonspeaker Outcast provides great ramp I am struggling with that one. There are a few dragons which merit further exploration I think, but can depend on what you are facing.

Thunderbreak Regent (A rattlesnake and nicely costed)

Thundermaw Hellkite (can clear the way for your non-trampling attack)

Scourge of the Throne (it is perfectly easy to get an additional attack out of this at least once)

Rimescale Dragon (would require moving to snow lands, a bit clunky manawise)

Kilnmouth Dragon (good utility dragon, but with the nr. of dragons you are running may be awkward)

Hellkite Charger (additional attacks? would pair nicely with neheb :)

Flameblast Dragon (no need to hit a player to dish out damage)

Wardscale Dragon (defense during your attack)

Nesting Dragon (The egg tokens are a good thing against board wipes)

Some Card Draw Dragons

Hoarding Dragon (Without the ability to misuse the ability may be a bit weak)

Eternal Dragon (more slow moving)

Dream Pillager (good effect, setup to high maybe)

Skyline Despot (well draws at least one cards and monarch makes stuff move)

Runehorn Hellkite (this one I really like. Usable EOT before you have your turn makes this really good)

I like what you've doing here. I was thinking of trying a similar version of Xantcha that eschewed the standard fare of quasi-aikido/punisher effects.

A few suggestions: Words of Waste is in some other Xantcha lists, but it seems particularly on point here, especially paired with Waste Not or Geth's Grimoire to recoup the loss of the draw.

Drownyard Temple becomes discard fodder into mid-game ramp.

Runehorn Hellkite becomes discard fodder into a late-game wheel effect.

That's all I've got for now. I'll likely reference your list for what I'll end up brewing. Thanks for putting it together.

Cheers!

Yo looks like you're having fun with this, I like it! +1 mate! I count 7.5 draw (though less, really, because some discard), but what you have doesn't give you many options. -This is commander! Draw like crazy so you can actually play!

What about Avaricious Dragon, Dragon Mage, Knollspine Dragon, and Runehorn Hellkite?

Reforge the Soul, Land Tax, Magus of the Wheel, and Runehorn Hellkite will help get cards in hand; but these are just the ones I went with in my deck:

Hi! I came here from the MTG EDH COMMANDER Facebook group.

First thoughts: You have far, far too few lands, and it's marked as a Standard deck. Luckily, you have 11 slots left, which hopefully go to lands :)

As others said, I'd cut Izzet Keyrune and Izzet Cluestone. As a general principle, I would not run 3-drop mana rocks that only tap for a single mana, because they deny you the ability to make other early plays. The one exception I would make to that is Coalition Relic, because it gives you the ability to get a T4 Locust God.

I find that Coat of Arms is too much mana:if you want to cast a Wheel, then power boost, then swing for lethal out of nowhere - 8 mana is a LOT.

Similarly, I found Runehorn Hellkite and Psychosis Crawler to be too much mana for their effects.

Generally speaking, I'd focus more on "everyone discard, draw 7" effects than "discard, draw that many". The one big problem this deck has is, oddly enough, running out of cards in hand. If you lower your curve, and run chaining effects like Dream Halls or Paradox Engine (if you add more rocks), you can easily wheel 4-5 times in a single turn.

I know it's a bit expensive, but I really would suggest picking up a Wheel of Fortune for the deck. There's nothing like the original.

Also, you're missing the Kindred Discovery combo :)

And as I said in the FB post, this is my list if you want to compare notes:

DoritosPerkin,

This is quite a spectacle! I think we both agree that Neheb can combo off in fun and often ridiculous ways. I really like your card draw which is really hard to achieve in mono-red haha. If you want my two cents, I prefer Chandra's Ignition over Rolling Earthquake due to monetary cost and also card value. Also, I might recommend you replace Runehorn Hellkite with Sin Prodder.

I have a more budget-oriented build (Neheb, the Eternal Manamaker) that you can check out if you'd like.

Cheers!

Sweet list.

Have you tested with Runehorn Hellkite, Wheel and Deal, Fascination, or Prosperity?

Also, Words of Waste can loop with Waste Not and any card draw (even your draw step) really well.

Have fun!

Runehorn Hellkite can be a nice companion to Dragon Mage.
