Savage Ventmaw Discussion

Nice! Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw allows for infinite attacks. So does Bear Umbra + Hellkite Charger. Definitely worth considering!

I do agree that more ramp ala some mana rocks like Gilded Lotus and Darksteel Ingot, along with hard ramp spells like Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, etc. would be useful.

As far as dragons go, I think there are a lot better ones out there you could be using (although some cards may be a bit pricey).

Balefire Dragon is very good, and gets around hexproof creatures. Scourge of the Throne is also really strong. Eternal Dragon gives you some pretty dece ramp, and so does Savage Ventmaw. Steel Hellkite should definitely be an addition, you could use it to remove threats. Yosei, the Morning Star is also pretty good for stalling threats by tapping an opponents stuff. Mana-Charged Dragon is also decent and political, if everyone is complaining about a specific player, everyone else can join forces to help eliminate that player. It got nicknamed dick punch dragon in my playgroup, lol. Dragon Broodmother and Death by Dragons may help also if you want to lean towards more tokens too.

There are also some pretty good support cards for dragons like Dragonlord's Servant, Dragonrage,and Dragon Tempest. Since you're going for a tribal build you might wanna give Urza's Incubator a shot also. Aurelia, the Warleader is also fantastic, 2 combats with dragons would be nuts, and if you have a savage ventmaw out you get 12 extra mana. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is also really strong too.

I'm not a fan of Shaman of Forgotten Ways, i tried running it and it just doesn't work all that great. If it works for you, you can run it though. I'm also not a fan of dictate of heliod or collective blessing since dragons are already pretty beefy, and they don't really buff them into something gigantic like Craterhoof Behemoth or Pathbreaker Ibex can make them. I also recommend considering Titanic Ultimatum. I also think you should run Dauntless Escort or Selfless Spirit instead of Soul of New Phyrexia, soul is way more expensive than the other 2 and dragons are already pretty high cmcs, so having some cheaper indestructible cards would be good.

Sorry for the long posts lol, this is probably a lot to take in.

Combo the two above with your Hellkite Charger and Savage Ventmaw and you can get extra attacks with an increasing number of dragons for only 1 mana.

Since you already have Savage Ventmaw in the deck add Aggravated Assault for the infinite combat phases

Looks super-fun!

A few thoughts ...

  • Aggravated Assault is kind of pricey, but it's great with Dragons. And it goes infinite with Savage Ventmaw.
  • Strionic Resonator is probably my favorite Artifact ever, and might work well in your deck because you have so many 'when, whenever, and at' effects. for double damage to all Creature from Balefire Dragon, 2 Tokens per Upkeep from Dragon Broodmother, etc. Unfortunately it's a non-bo with Atarka, World Render since gaining double strike again has no additional effect.
  • If your meta is anything like mine, Homeward Path might be a good addition.
  • Watch out for Coat of Arms if you have any other Tribal in your meta, because it affects your opponents as well. Giving a huge buff to an opposing Goblin swarm? Not fun.
  • I'm personally not a fan of Akroma's Memorial, because it never seems to last long enough to do any good.
  • If you want a little more Voltron, Trailblazer's Boots is amazing in Commander.

Draw well!
