Scion of the Ur-Dragon Discussion

i'd use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as the commander to toolbox whatever effects you need at the time while loading up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding. use it to bring back Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund to give everything haste and attack for game.

You should consider Quicksilver Dragon, it's amazing for protection against targeted removal.

Mistveil Plains is amazing when it's online aswell, to shuffle dragons back into the library for reuse with Scion of the Ur-Dragon, Time Spiral can be a huge help aswell to get more gas for Scion of the Ur-Dragon

I find that Dragon Mage can be amazing to refill your hand.

I decided to try my hand at making a competitive Horde of Notions deck, and I believe it could potentially be moved up a half step.

I had recently discovered the Hermit Druid combo is actually pretty good in the deck (there are a few elementals that sac themselves for damage like Magmaw and Blazing Hellhound) and then midway through building the deck, it had the same initial combo as in the Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck featured. I then based it off the shell of that deck and created a deck that I believe is a great way to use Horde of Notions.

Here's the deck, the name is kind of a working title but that doesn't matter too much:

Horde? More Like a Mess!

One of the downsides of the deck is that it's a one-trick pony, so once people know what the deck does, they know how to stop the main combo.

Let me know what you all think!

use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander to copy whatever effect you need at the time while loading up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding to bring back Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund and a bunch of other dragons for a big haste attack to end the game. it'd also provide a bunch of big Dragon Tempest triggers.

darkvoidz: don't listen to cvarena21989. keep Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander and use it to load up the graveyard for a Patriarch's Bidding. use that combo with Dragonlord Kolaghan, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, or Dragon Tempest to attack for game the same turn with haste. that is, if the damage from Dragon Tempest doesn't kill them first. for example, lets assume you have 0 creatures on the field when you cast Patriarch's Bidding and it puts 5 dragons into play under your control. Dragon Tempest triggers 5 times, for 5 damage per trigger. 25 damage.

if you really want to do dragon tribal in edh, i would highly recommend making it 5 color with Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander. use it to search dragons to copy whatever effects can help you at the time, then reanimate all those dragons with Patriarch's Bidding.

Always love dragons.

For some win-cons I would try Kindred Summons and Genesis Wave.

For stuff like this where everything is huge (both mana and toughness) I like Heartless Summoning as well as Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent. That last one will also help with some draw.

I also like running some good ol' necromancy tricks with some hand cycle. I'd consider running Scion of the Ur-Dragon instead, so you can tutor out and load up your graveyard, then drop some stuff like Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, Rise of the Dark Realms, and a favorite Living Death.

If you like the last idea, run some Ancient Excavation, Jace's Archivist, Collective Defiance, Windfall, Dragon Mage, Incendiary Command, Tolarian Winds, Magus of the Wheel, and Wheel of Fate to fuel that graveyard. And if you are feeling cheeky Traumatize yourself and confuse everybody.

Also, try out some cluestones, keyrunes, obelisks and such to help with that mana ramp. I'd recommend around 8 or so to balance out the pace, unless you wanna fork out for Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Oracle of Mul Daya

my favorite combo is Scourge of the Throne + Dragon Tempest + Utvara Hellkite. Add Scourge of Valkas to double the etb damage triggers and double the lols.

Breath of Fury is a good budget replacement for Scourge of the Throne.

also, if you end up running Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander, Moltensteel Dragon + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is another awesome dragon combo and Dragon Tyrant is a good budget/back-up replacement for skittles.
