Ryusei, the Falling Star Discussion
5 days ago
With C17 being spoiled in full today, we can add quite a lot of cards to the list.
Ovsiously all 5 of the reprinted FRF dragons (i.e Ojutai, Soul of Winter) are from Tarkir. So are both Taigams.
Marchesa, the Black Rose is from Fiora.
Not positive but I believe both the Ur-Dragon and his scion are from Dominaria.
You already have the 5 wedge dragons from dominaria, now their shard colored counterparts (i.e Crosis, the Purger) can join them.
Edgar Markov is innistrad.
Raksha Golden Cub is from Mirrodin.
Nazahn is unknown but Im gonna guess he's from Mirrodin.
Both niv-mizzets are from Ravnica.
Arahbo, Balan, Kess, Licia, Mathas, Vela, and Inalla are unknown.

Awesome deck. I have a mono red dragon deck with Zirilan as well (not fully updated on this site though).
Some cards you def need:
Braid of Fire - a growing pool of red mana.
Conjurer's Closet - Use this on a dragon you've tutored for with Zirilan and poof, you don't lose the dragon.
Hoarding Dragon - Finds conjurer's closet or other Artifacts
Mirrorpool - Can also be used to copy a creature that you've tutored for with Zirilan, a copy that you get to keep.
Mudslide - All your stuff flies...
Hellkite Tyrant - An alternate wincon
Good Luck +1

There is a tl;dr section at the bottom, I did not have enough time to shorten this
Taking this off the forums to save everybody else (and you) the trouble
1:I am accused of being too much of a spike ("That's because stuff like Stasis are 'spikier' cards"). The cause of this accusation was directed at my answer ("but there are better ways of achieving Stasis hint hint", the answer provided an improved card whilst not making any concrete specifications. This was interpreted that I am competitive.
This accusation is easily falsified by pointing out lack of specificity I used and the fact that I mentioned a less-than-competitive reason (in the form of Brine Elemental).
Typical EDH is brought up ("in typical EDH, decks that want to play big creatures without big combos or locks are pretty common"). You have defined typical EDH as, "is not the weird mix of casual-competitive that you play. It's just casual". First: what weird mix of casual-competitive do I play? Please expand accurately on that. How would normal casual-competitive be defined? Please expand accurately on that. Lastly, please define casual, accurately of course.
*If you want any information as to who I play with, what decks we play, and how long games last (turn and/or minutes), ask and you shall receive.
I am accused that I play weird casual-competitive. To say that I play casual-competitive, coming from another person, is one of the most cretinous, inane, and ineffectual statements to make.
Who are you to say that I play weird casual-competitive?
"I'll also point out your explicit mentions of 'meta' and 'competitive'". Congratulations, you read what I write. If you could please be so kind as to assimilate it. The usage of the word "meta" is as follows: a term used to characterize something that is characteristically self-referential. Please do not confuse this with the abbreviation "meta" (most effective tactically available) as that would make no sense within that context. You pointed out that I used the word competitive. I freely admit that I mention (and more) the word competitive, explicitly and clearly.
Do you admit the same.
You appear to view this as a bad thing (troubling, however, your point does not prove anything, leaving another open-ended notion that you bring up).
The original point is that Kokusho, the Evening Star is used more than Yosei, the Morning Star, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Jugan, the Rising Star, and/or Keiga, the Tide Star (damn, i got them all correct!). I gave my reason, when you argued, I gave another reason, you then argued by accusing the way I play, the way others play (attacking my playgroups), and then proceeded to ignore my second reason.
You expect that if you--passively or passive-aggressively or aggressively-- accuse a person (seemingly without any basis), that you can get away with it? With this in mind, let's review some notes you might have forgotten:
you create open-ended and empty points, you create terms that are vague and voided, and it appears that if it is not casual (oh sorry: typical edh) it is immediately discounted.
1:I want to use the way that you write and show you how ridiculous it is, but one would hope that is already clear by what is on this message.
The amount of definite things that you (appear to) believe I said that are not true and create serious flaws: I like yosei as a card, I use yosei in my kaalia deck (Rakdos the Defiler + Yosei, the Morning Star + Twilight Shepherd is fun on turn 5...), and Yosei is not a bad card. Remember, because there is a "better" card does not necessarily mean that the original card is bad. Redundancy is key in edh. Plague Wind is strictly worse than In Garruk's Wake, is Plague Wind a bad card? No(!) both cards are both good. Would I rather play In Garruk's Wake, in most situations, yes. I shall forestall your comment (you talk about meta (the abbreviation)!) and note that both plague and garruk's wake are good and played.
It is important to note your comment, "Yosei is listed in around 2000 decks out of the 150,000-ish decks". You do not list where, how, or what parameters you used in coming up with this. It should be disqualified from the internet. However, since you bring up that numbers, I viewed this search and applied Kokusho, Yosei, Keiga, Ryusei, and Jugan. Each page is 20 decks, i got the following numbers: Kokusho is in 6160 decks, Yosei is in 3480(?!) decks, Keiga is in 2820 decks, Ryusei is in 1880 decks, and Jugan is in 1260 decks (all of these numbers are within 20 minus). I do not see the point in continuing to write this line of thought.
1:In conclusion. It has been a delightful fifteen minutes thinking about this, but for now I shall break.
2:The following has been noted and gone over: you accused me of being a spike, of not playing typical edh, and playing weird casual-competitve edh. You offer no grounds, clarifications, definitions, and minimal basis for them. You have been quoted. You are asked a question that is a cause for some abeyance. I rehash the original point and show your flaws. I stem future accusations. I clarify misconceptions you seem to hold (apologies if you did not hold them, your comments were indicative). I debase a claim you fought for. I reiterate message in conclusion.

Descendants' Path is fun with dragons.
Ryusei, the Falling Star is another good dragon.

As long as Ryusei, the Falling Star goes to the graveyard, it will trigger it's when it dies ability. This includes going to the graveyard due to the legend rule. If it does not go to the graveyard do to something like Wheel of Sun and Moon or Rest in Peace it will not trigger.

If I cast Dragonstorm and got two Ryusei, the Falling Star I would have to "choose one of them, and the rest are put into their owners' graveyards" as per the legendary rule. Would this trigger Ryusei's death ability? The rule doesn't say the creature is destroyed.

Since you're in red and have a lot of damage, Thornbite Staff might be good to trigger Zirilian an extra time or two. Dangerous Wager is actually great card draw once you empty the rest of your hand(something not hard to do in EDH). Temple of the False God is pretty good too, and Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang gives you an equip and a way to spawn a dragon blocker at instant speed. I'm surprised at no Ryusei, the Falling Star- it might kill your general if you sac it but it's a cheap way to wipe an enemy field.
Exuberant Firestoker is a cheap mana rock that shocks people.
If you have dragons in your hand you'll enjoy Cryptic Gateway to cheat them out as well.
Dragonstorm might be too expensive considering the other ways you have to cheat out dragons but it's worth considering.
You don't have a lot of Instants/Sorceries which seems odd when you're in red but having more dragons is always worthwhile I suppose.
Either way looks like a fun deck to play!

Nice suggestions. I'll look into some of them, though Ryusei, the Falling Star is one that I probably won't put back in. If it did damage to all creatures, then I'd be all for it. There's so much destruction in the deck right now that it's a bit lackluster. Same for Dragonmaster Outcast, it gets killed off too easily by my own spells that something like Utvara Hellkite is way better.
