Scalelord Reckoner Discussion

Zotmaster on Oros the Revenger

Some thoughts:

Not having Sunforger in any Mardu deck should be a crime. This also allows for more hateful answers like Utter End and Anguished Unmaking. I'd probably cut the discard spells since you're only running three and they get exponentially worse over time. You could also run Chaos Warp and/or Oblation.

You can't get it with Sunforger, but Vindicate also works well: that's a nice permanent you have over there. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it.

Scalelord Reckoner also helps make the person you hate sad.

A deathtouch effect like Basilisk Collar makes connecting with Oros hilarious. Running Stuffy Doll is also a thought. You could also try Repercussion since you're light on creatures.

Hope this helps :)

Are you still willing to discuss about this deck? I'm also playing with the Scion as my command, I really like the concept, but I think that a few cards could be even threatening in your deck. Cards such as Decimate which is really deadly in early game, even if there is no creature nor enchant to destroy, you're still able to destroy a land + an eventual Sol Ring.

Render Silent is also pretty strong in my opinion since it kinda finishes the ennemy's turn.

I like Scalelord Reckoner, every time I play it, it seems very annoying for the opponants to deal with it.

The main problem I see with the deck is that you have no way of interacting with artifacts or enchantments other than Steel Hellkite which needs to connect or O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami which needs to connect and have been dealt damage, and Scalelord Reckoner which needs to be targeted, all of which are conditional. Perhaps a Vandalblast? If your enemy plays a Crawlspace or a Ensnaring Bridge for example your chances are highly diminished. Or worse .. a Sandwurm Convergence can effectively read "You can't win the game". I personally like Merciless Eviction as it covers everything you need to get rid of based on board, and Austere Command since all your dragons can be safe, and get rid of any pesky artifact/enchantment heavy deck.Expropriate Can help you take them away I guess? Still seems limited in that sense.

An Urza's Incubator can help reducing the cost a lot combined with the commander.

Other than that .. Quite solid! I don't know much about competitive play as I generally only play with my casual playgroup for fun where games last up to 2 hours, so something like this seems pretty great, Cheers!

@StigIt2me Hi, thanks for the comment. I am aware of the Scalelord Reckoner, somehow my meta has given up on trying to kill Scion since the spell either fizzles or they get punished by Yosei, the Morning Star. I might add Dragonlord Ojutai if I need more protection, though cards like Quicksilver Dragon and Scalelord Reckoner lead to hilarious effects. If you have time, please read through the summary section mentioning possible cuts and exclusions and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Interesting deck, and hopefully quite successful. I profess I am a fan because I like Dragons, but I've never gone with Scion of the Ur-Dragon because I'd rather not build combo out of Dragon Tribal. There isn't honestly much that I can suggest for this deck--all of the right elements are already here as far as I can tell. I might draw your attention to Scalelord Reckoner as a protection card, though. It's fairly new (having just come out in C17) and is a strong deterrant for targeting your Dragons. If Silumgar is already in your grave, you can use Reckoner for revenge on a spot removal spell or ability.

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.
