Scalelord Reckoner Discussion
2 weeks ago
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.

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).

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.
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!
