Scourge of the Throne

Creature — Dragon

Flying

Dethrone (Whenever this creature attacks the player with the most life or tied for most life, put a +1/+1 counter on it.)

Whenever Scourge of the Throne attacks for the first time each turn, if it's attacking the player with the most life or tied for most life, untap all attacking creatures. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase.

Did you consider Metallic Mimic so that your dragons have counters you can proliferate with Volt Charge? Curse of Stalked Prey is also a relatively efficient way to get counters on your creatures. Ring of Valkas also has some additional utility. Of course, it's Dragon Blood that is the flavor victory.

No Sarkhan the Masterless to dissuade attacks? Slumbering Dragon seems like it would be a fun inclusion, too. Skarrgan Hellkite and Scourge of the Throne are two other rare +1/+1 counter dragons. (There are four more I remember, but they're not as useful here, IIRC. Finally, Door of Destinies works well with tribal themes AND proliferate.

Thank you! I was originally going to run Dragonspeaker Shaman , but the mana cost was a little restrictive in a three-color deck without fetchlands. Utvara Hellkite is a great suggestion, and much better within my budget. I ended up replacing Scourge of the Throne with it. I already actually run a Dragonlord's Servant . It's such a good card in this kind of deck.

Judith, the Scourge Diva interesting..I thought it was your deck, but it could've been a different Marchesa list where I said Judith seems promising and the deck creator said they don't think it's worth much in the deck. I don't remember honestly whose deck it was lol

Scourge of the Throne [ does work when you get it out, I haven't drawn it much to be honest though. But it's definitely a good include...Unless you find more powerful 6 drops for Marchesa's ability.

WOW..that is a lucky pack! Good for you man!

Ok, I made a few changes to test stuff. Not sure if these changes are permanent so cuts were moved to my maybeboard.

Cuts: Corpse Augur - I love this guy but his ability isn't a 'may'. There's times I can't play this guy or having it out already gets in the way.

Sadistic Hypnotist - Most tentative cut here. I love that discard... it seals games. 2/2 for 5 mana and a human though.

Dimir House Guard - Another tentative cut. Tutors up 4 drops like Damnation or Sneak Attack or it's an evasive free sac outlet that protects itself.

Torment of Hailfire - I don't really go big mana here, this was a bad fit.

Adds: Dreadhorde Arcanist - I'm not sure that I run enough instants/sorceries here to make this work... we'll see.

Judith, the Scourge Diva - She seems promising to push the pace of aggro, shame she's a human and not a wizard though.

Jokulhaups - I feel like a dick ending games this way but this deck needs that option. Going back in and probably never coming out either.

Scourge of the Throne - This is my most tentative addition, I'll see if this guy actually sticks and puts in any work. Seems more like walking into counterspells or targeted removal willingly though.

I'm after opinions on these additions/cuts please.

Infinite Combat + Infinite Creature copies

Helm of the Host + Combat Celebrant

Helm of the Host + Aurelia, the Warleader

Helm of the Host + Godo, Bandit Warlord

Helm of the Host + Scourge of the Throne

Like with the Combat Celebrant, just make sure you don't attack with the equipped creature.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:

Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:

  • direct damage is now at lower cmc
  • -1 Ramp
  • +1 protection/haste
  • +2 tutor
  • +5 draw
  • +1 anti-control
  • -4 Creature removal
  • -2 graveyard hate
  • -1 discard
  • -1 extra attack
  • -1 lifegain/recursion
  • +1 removal

So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.

And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!
