How useful would Hellbent be as an ability be here? I'd assume that w/ so much discarding, effects requiring 0 card hands should be useful here somehow...

I wonder which ones though... Demonfire is a must here, & that Hellbent Tutor is Amazing here... What about Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker?

3/5 seem creature based, so why not have W/U more spell focused? So maybe a mix of Stax, taxes, pillow fort, possibly a touch of group hug. If you want Walker creatures I would think you would have to do it like Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker or Gideon of the Trials, where one of the abilities turn them into a critter for a turn.

Eminence on walkers... could work in place of Ultimate Abilities I suppose. Wolves and Minotaurs could be an anthem or on combat thing, exalted could be "If a creature attacks alone it gains Doublestrike". The cycling/discard could be something like "whenever you discard, each opponent does as well (possibly limited to once/turn?). And the last, maybe a Norn's Annex effect.

Interestingly enough, Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker tokens will actually die if you +1 them.

Sneak Attack reasonable cost and pretty cheap to cheat dragons from hand, i never tried because i don't like so much the idea of losing them, but it is something that caught my attention.

God-Pharaoh's Gift Don't like the cost, but the ability is interesting, i didn't even knew this card, thanks for showing, but i think the problem is losing it for the discard hand mechanics or not having the mana for casting it once it is exiled.

Etali, Primal Storm Pretty good, but not a dragon lol, i'm going to get all the non dragons out as soon as they get better dragons.

Warp World Know the effect well, avoiding this kind of cost.

Archwing Dragon For many times i get him in and out, because i hate when i loose him to the discard mechanics.

Cathartic Reunion, Sunbird's Invocation and many options for "draw" in red i already used, the thing is i made the deck low costa dragons exactly for Grafted Skullcap, Avaricious Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

going to see your deck right now, thanks for the tips.

You will create a token that's a copy of what was printed on the original card, minus the word "Legendary." It will be a planeswalker, not a creature, with 3 loyalty counters. It will then gain haste, but as you are already in combat and loyalty abilities are restricted to sorcery speed, it's unlikely that the token will get to attack. As the token is always a planeswalker, the questions of what happen when it becomes a planewalker are somewhat moot.

Also worth noting, Gideon of the Trials is always a planeswalker, it's ability that turns it into a creature specifies that it's still a planeswalker. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker is the only planeswalker that stops being a planeswalker when it becomes a creature, but when you make a copy the copy is still going to be a planeswalker, as the animating ability is not a copiable characteristic.
