Sarkhan's Triumph Discussion

Hey, your Commanders care about two types of creatures, Dragons and Knights. This is the simplest approach to consider is add more Dragons and some Knights? A higher amount of Dragons than Knights seems better with your two Commanders because double strike with Dragons who already fly is more powerful then Knights with flying.

Dragons are high mana cost creatures therefore consider more ramp? More ramp so you can cast Dragons especially Khorvath faster. Sylvia doesn't do much until you have a Dragon on the battlefield which ramp can help with.

You can't play Gruul Locket and Orzhov Locket in a Boros Commander deck. Can only play cards that are red, white or red/white because these are the color identities of your Commanders. Cards with black and green even though they also have red or white aren't legal with Boros.

What's the budget for your deck? Cards $1 or less each to consider adding:

Lands

Mana Rocks/Other Ramp

Dragons/Cards that support Dragons

Dragons who can pump their own power which is called "firebreathing" are good with double strike.

Knights

Draw

  • Mask of Memory: an equipped creature with double strike who isn't blocked does combat damage twice to an opponent meaning you draw four cards.
  • Rogue's Gloves: with flying it's easier to do combat damage.

The nice thing about these equipment is the interaction with double strike. These equipment can also be repeatable draw and if the equipped creature dies, the equipment isn't destroyed, can equip another creature.

Removal

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you haven't done much upgrading; this is basically the precon list. Nice upgrades of Ascendancy, Unbroken, Fireblood, Dragonlord Dromoka. The Ur Dragon is the Commander, but the deck list doesn't show that because you forgot to put the CMDR tag after The Ur Dragon text in the deck editor.

The Ur Dragon *F* *CMDR*

Consider further upgrading the manabase with more dual lands and dual land upgrades? With 17 basic lands then budget dual lands that have interaction with basic lands are good options. The Vivid lands are not good, not reliable enough color fixing from lands for five colors. Consider budget Rainbow lands?

In the place of the other Vivid lands and one basic land consider the budget Battle lands?

A Battle land can be searched for with Farseek which makes Farseek a much better card for ramp and color fixing when it can put a dual land onto the battlefield. Consider cutting a few of the least good Dragons: Ryusei, Niv-Mizzet, Intet, Crosis? Cut them for budget creature tutors?

Dragon's Hoard and Fellwar Stone are mana rock upgrades to consider. Faeburrow Elder can be very good budget ramp for five colors. It already can tap for two mana white and green. Add any red, black or blue permanent and it can tap for up to five mana of five different colors. You could cut Ingot, Dreamstone, Sphere for these.

Multiplayer Commander decks need instant removal options and since you're playing five colors then you have access to the best budget removal.

Decimate is good when you have multiple opponents. Could cut Condemn, Fortunate, Fractured, Rain for these.

Good luck with your deck.

One suggestion comes immediately: Wild Pair. The card is perfect for tribal decks. Explosive Vegetation is more vital ramp. Plus, Sarkhan's Triumph; a tutor for a dragon? Surely that is one of the first things to go into a deck? Where Ancients Tread could also be of use to you but is not a must.

Hey, interesting version of Wildborn.

Consider some creature tutors?

You could expand on the interaction of being able to play more lands a turn.

Crucible/Excavator have good interaction with Reformation and Loam is the enabler for these cards. Reformation and Horn can be consistent sources of repeatable draw with only lands.

Aggravated Assault is a combo with Savage Ventmaw for infinite combats. Nature's Lore is upgrade for a land ramp spell because you have Taiga, Stomping and Glade.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Crucible of Fire: Dragons are already big with lots of power as well as flying they don't also need anthems.
  • Return of the Wildspeaker
  • Vanquisher's Banner
  • Explosive Vegetation
  • Jugan, the Rising Star
  • Ryusei, the Falling Star
  • Foe-Razer Regent
  • Siege Dragon
  • Kilnmouth Dragon

Good luck with your deck.

There are some other "targets" for discard, but I don't think all of these are the best for you. I'll list each of them instead of loads of paragraphs.

  1. Punishing Fire - Could be a replacement for Spit Flame but honestly that's up to you. Punishing Fire is technically more versatile since it hits any target and depending on the matchup it can be easier to retrieve. However, Spit Flame has an easier time removing creatures. This one more to just let you know exists.

  2. Flamewake Phoenix - Again, a card that I'm mentioning just to let you know exists. Since most of your dragons have 4 or more power, you could easily get this card back from your graveyard but you would also deviate a bit from the draconic theme.

  3. Ore-Scale Guardian - This one isn't a target himself, but he makes it more profitable for you to discard lands, specially if you end up being mana flooded.

  4. Runehorn Hellkite - Can be used to refill your hand late game(?) and as he's no diffenrent from other dragons, there's no downside letting him rest in your grave until you active it's effect.

  5. Fiery Temper - Basically adds 3 damage for one mana to all of your discard spells.

These are the monored option. I also have options that would actually require you to splash for black. These are, of course, not mandatory for you to run, but it's always good to get to know more cards.

  1. Bladewing the Risen -A giant dragon that reanimates another one when it comes into play and also has the ability to pump all your dragons. Obviously he's not a target for discard himself. However, he can make other dragons more interesting to discard.

  2. Boneyard Scourge - Pretty simple. Dump him into the graveyard and when one of your dragons die, you get him back for a really cheap cost.

  3. Bone Dragon - A recurrable dragon that can be left in the grave until the late game when it can come back multiple times, assuming you have enough cards in the grave.

  4. Dread Return - By sacrificing 3 Bladewing's Thrall you could get a free reanimation spell since when you get the dragon back from the graveyard you'll also get the Thralls back.

In case you consider any of these black cards or you just don't feel confortable not bein able to cast the Thralls, there are a few budget lands that can help you with the mana. Also, the Haven of the Spirit Dragon could help you cast the black dragons but not activate their abilities.

About the cuts for the Thralls, you are still above 60 cards. There are some other cuts you can also make.

  1. Dragonspeaker Shaman - They're quite expensive and you already have a pretty decent amount of "ramp" and cost discounts. Even more, they're really easy to kill.

  2. Slumbering Dragon - He seems quite tempting to play as he can grow a lot. However, that's the problem, he CAN grow but nothing guarantees he will. Also, only one in the deck won't help at all.

  3. Sarkhan's Triumph - Since you now have more card draw, you could maybe cut one of these.

  4. For the Thralls I'd cut one Spinerock Knoll , Mudslide and the two Dragon Egg s.

A general rule to live by when playing modern is that it's okay to be slow as long as you can slow the game down with you.

I don't feel you're able to slow the game down to the pace where this kind of deck can keep up. Let's be honest here, this list is extremely slow, even for a dragon deck. And you don't have much interaction to support it a slow playstyle.

You have a few good ramp cards to help you speed up a tad, and that's pretty dang nice. Dragonlord's Servant seems good, and Everflowing Chalice ain't bad either. But you have so many, big, clunky cards that are going to clog up your hand while your opponent is preparing to kill you on turn 3.

As for as big clunky cards goes, Berserkers' Onslaught and Crucible of Worlds even seem like a bit of a missmatch here. They are cards that ask you to have commited a powerful battlefield before you apply them, as to maximize their effect. In this list, not only will they often come into play before your creatures, but they will help you even less than a creature when you're struggling to survive the early game.

Sarkhan's Triumph , despite being one of your cheaper cards, is not that great either, but that's mostly just due to the nature of dragons. There aren't many disruptive dragons that can suit a particular situation greatly. They mostly just hit hard. There aren't any draconic Meddling Mage s or Deputy of Detention s that you can tutor for to counter what's going on, so it's probably just better to play more dragons instead.

You can of course play the way you want to, but in essence, if you wish for the deck to be more competitive, you should lower your curve (Cutting some 7+ drops), get a bit of ramp, and get some more interaction to slow the game down.


I think someone already mentioned Glorybringer , but the powerflevel of that card is through the roof as far as dragons go. One of, if not the best mono-colored dragon in modern. Stormbreath Dragon is also nice. Anger of the Gods or Sweltering Suns are ncie to fight aggro decks. Chalice of the Void and Blood Moon are some great disrupts. Abrade is a great piece of basic inetraction. Mind Stone and potentially Dragon's Hoard are cool options for ramp.

Not sure what your budget is, but here are a few affordable cards that make the deck significantly better :)

hey FoxLGV,

You got a nice deck and here are my suggestions :

I like the way you keep it flavor. You could take a look at my deck (The dragUr), it's more a recursion oriented deck but it could give you some idea.
