Scion of the Ur-Dragon Discussion

MoJoMiXuP on How to make room for ...

Hey all,

I'm too attached to the cards in my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck There Be Dragons! and can't decide what to cut for the Conqueror's Flail I recently traded into. I'm fishing for suggestions from someone with fresh eyes to ease the transition.

Thanks in advance!

i think you're lookin at it the wrong way. ask yourself WHY you're at 5 life. do you run enough removal in the deck? if you're running all 5 colors the world is your oyster when it comes to possible removal. a lot of those cards you're considering are really high cost, and for that much mana you could just play another huge dragon to block with.

now since you're running dragons, my final bit of advice is to actually use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander, using it to copy whatever effects are useful in the current situation while filling up the graveyard for Patriarch's Bidding. use Dragon Tempest, or revive a Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund or Dragonlord Kolaghan to give them all haste and attack for lethal.

Hi MegaMatt13, have you ever considered Savage Beating? With just 2 5/5 dragons you can swing for a lethal 40 damage in a single turn. I think it deserves a spot as a surprise win card. Also, Scion of the Ur-Dragon is an excellent card and tutor in this deck, when you attack you can search and copy a dragon for a specific situation. Balefire Dragon to wipe a board, Hellkite Tyrant to steal all artifacts and equipment of an artifact heavy deck, etc. There's also a silly combo with Savage Ventmaw and Hellkite Charger in which you can take a bunch of extra combat phases. If you have Scion out, you can search and copy Atarka, World Render to swing for lethal and win. Hope this helps :)

Thank you Crav96! Beast Within definitely is back in. I put it back in before Commander last night at my LGS, and I'm glad I did. A player hit me with Overwhelming Splendor and Beast Within saved the day.

I am working on my Scion of the Ur-Dragon on my off time. I should have it up this weekend if you're interested in providing feedback there as well.

To be honest, this deck could be much better as a commander deck, using The Ur-Dragon or Scion of the Ur-Dragon. This is pretty slow for modern and EDH gives you so many more options.

shadow63 on Is 5 color reanimator viable?

I want to build a dragon reanimator deck with Scion of the Ur-Dragon at the helm. Is building the deck a good idea? Or should I just keep with my agro/ ramp list?

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.

Huh... Hunting Grounds, never seen that card before. thanks for making me aware of it. I'll have to give it a try in my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck.

Not to make it too much of a debate, but I'd second the suggestion of Defense of the Heart. Yes it is conditional, but also reliable to trigger in all but the most cut throat of metas. I would second the suggestion to play test with it, maybe with the inclusion of Forbidden Orchard for consistency. Worse case scenario, it draws out the enchantment hate from your opponents before you try to land Lurking Predators or Sneak Attack in the following turns.
