Scalelord Reckoner Discussion

Jonny994 on Scion of the Dragon Feast

Just done. I like Boneyard Parley and Scalelord Reckoner, but in the end I think my list is more solid, starting from the ramp (I mean, an opening hand with Farseek but no green lands is sick, way better signets in a penta imo). Still I think graveyard's recursions must be as versatile as possible and I disagree with stuff like Grim Return. Thanks for suggests howeva

In a five-color deck, you may want to add either Prismatic Omen or Chromatic Lantern (or both) in order to always have the right types of mana available. Also I recommend you switch out your obelisks/banners for land tutoring spells (like Rampant Growth, Farseek, Cultivate and/or Kodama's Reach). These will allow you to filter through your deck faster. I'd also recommend adding Urza's Incubator, Semblance Anvil, Dragonspeaker Shaman and/or Dragonlord's Servant to make your dragon spells much cheaper. Last thing I'd recommend: Scalelord Reckoner; makes people very reluctant to destroy your dragons.

Narrash, thanks for your interest in the deck! I considered Thunderbreak Regent. His casting cost is great. However, his 3 damage isn't really that much of a disincentive for opponents to target your dragons. 3 damage is a tiny price to pay in commander. I much prefer Scalelord Reckoner as opponents are much more reluctant to part with their best permanent.

having said all that, Thunderbreak Regent may still be a decent option based on low casting cost alone. you may find it worth testing :)

My favorite dragon overall is Thundermaw Hellkite. Not only is a 5/5 flying haste for 5 a solid deal, but tapping down every flying would-be-blocker is ridiculous. Skyline Despot also really powerful and has awesome art (yes it's wearing armor).

Also a fan of Scalelord Reckoner, Crucible of Fire and Haven of the Spirit Dragon. Balefire Dragon is another fat fatty you may enjoy.

RubyStrings Thank you for all these suggestions! Oracle of Mul Daya is definitely better, but my budget is running low and I want to try and keep the deck as tribal as possible.

I will look at taking out Crucible of Fire for Quicksilver Amulet and Broodmate Dragon for Scalelord Reckoner. they shouldn't affect too much except adding some more white, which I think my current mana base can handle. Would Consign to Dust and/or Primeval Light suffice for enchantment/artifact hate? I know one is slow, but I would love you thoughts on these.

Currently, I see Indestructible as a big possible threat, mostly Blightsteel Colossus so Utter End and Anguished Unmaking are great suggestions!

I feel like Steel Hellkite Siege Dragon Forgestoker Dragon Ryusei, the Falling Star Scourge of Valkas Deathbringer Regent Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Dragon Tempest give me a lot of pseudo wipes. I was looking to Merciless Eviction at some point because Indestructable is always a problem.

With all the ramp I have, Dragonstorm has been a game ender with Dragon Tempest and/or Ramos, Dragon Engine. I usually grab Scourge of Valkas, Broodmate Dragon, and whoever else I need for the situation. Usually it storms 3 times.

I would love a Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills and Verdant Catacombs. Right now I'm running Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley, and Bad River for budget reasons. I also want to put it a Cavern of Souls for Ancient Ziggurat

Into the Wilds really ramps! That is awesome, thank you for telling me!

You definitely seem more experienced then me so I hope keep bouncing ideas back and forth. This is SUPER helpful!

I would drop Into the Wilds in favor of Oracle of Mul Daya. Better ramp and more options when utilizing fetches to shuffle away unwanted stuff. I also feel Crucible of Dragons is a little lackluster, as most of your dragons aren't really wanting in the area of raw power. Most of them do want ways to get them into play easier or to protect them. I like Quicksilver Amulet personally.

Other things...would cut Broodmate Dragon for Scalelord Reckoner. Fit in Utter End/Anguished Unmaking. Gotta kill those mana doublers before a combo player goes off hard. Blasphemous Act or Supreme Verdict should replace Dragonstorm, as it will not storm very well, and cheap boardclears are very necessary against decks like Krenko, Mob Boss or other such swarmy token decks.

Would also rework the mana base to include fetches. They're very very nice. At least Bloodstained Mire and Wooded Foothills, as those are your main colors.

Hope I helped

if u want more protection Scalelord Reckoner which came in the precon is great, its like a Karmic Justice. also, i found (by playing my dragons deck) boardwipes wreck face, so Marshal's Anthem is kind of amazing if u have enough white mana.

The deck looks pretty good! Here are the cuts I would make to bring it down to 100 cards:

Monastery Siege: This card provides less card advantage than we'd like. The tax on targeting is redundant with the Asceticism and the Scalelord Reckoner in the deck.

Nihil Spellbomb: This can be brought back in if you are facing a lot of graveyard-based decks, but it can be cut for a first draft. You already have 5 other single-target removal spells, which should be sufficient anyway. If you want to bring it back in, cut another single-target removal spell.

I would also replace Armillary Sphere with another land. The sphere does not provide true mana ramp, and another land would help greatly in ensuring that you hit your land drops on time.

Other cards/upgrades I would consider include:

Swan Song, Heroic Intervention, Teferi's Protection: These can protect you against board clears, which can be devastating.

Patriarch's Bidding: Insanely strong in a deck where everything is expensive.

Dromoka, the Eternal: Bolster can get out of hand very quickly.

Hellkite Tyrant: Almost everyone uses artifacts in EDH, so this will almost always have something good to steal.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund,Dragonlord Kolaghan: More haste.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary: Very powerful and underrated card draw enabler. The scry alone is decent.

Maelstrom Wanderer: Not a dragon, but INCREDIBLY powerful in this deck, the haste is amazing, and cascading into 2 dragons is a real possibility. If you have Ur-dragon out, you'll be in a very strong position to win.

Skyshroud Claim,Nature's Lore: If you upgrade the mana base to include some lands with basic land types (shocks, BFZ lands, Amonkhet cyclers), then these become very powerful and efficient ramp cards.

Merciless Eviction,Decree of Pain,Toxic Deluge: Good board wipes.

Dragon Arch,Cryptic Gateway,Belbe's Portal: more ways to cheat dragons onto the battlefield.

Sarkhan the Mad: His -2 ability can usually take out a player.

Balefire Dragon: Acts as a mini board wipe.

City of Brass, Reflecting Pool: Good lands that can tap for any color.
