Scourge of the Throne Discussion

stagnantcelerity on The Commanders' Guide to Havoc and Pillaging

Thanks for the feedback October_Scream! Eldrazi are too mana intensive for my taste, though I find that approach fresh and interesting in comparison to the usual weenies. Boldwyr Intimidator and Briber's Purse and the new Earthshaker Khenra are also very flavorfull and could be a fine starting point when beginning to build a Grenzo deck before working the way for cheaper alternatives with higher levels of repeatableness.

Berserkers' Onslaught on the other hand seems like a great addition for almost any level of tuning, and I'll be trying it out once I'm finished testing Scourge of the Throne or find another slot for trying out things. Key to the City is also actually quite nice when considering how little card selection is available for mono red.

Mana Geyser is a bit of a sometimes-do-nothing card, but It can still do heavy lifting when your board is empty and opponents always have plenty of tapped lands. I've never had to do it for less than ten for a net of 5 and usually goes towards 20. Very fun card :) I'd love to try out Neheb too if I ever get one.

The well thought out part of this deck in my mind is the efficient mana curve and stable amount of enablers (the ceatures and evasion) that come out early so that the deck consistently does what it's made for. I Wish there were more board wipes and removal that fit a token deck in red! It's harsh to wipe your own board and not have much mana to rebuild that turn, luckily Blasphemous act is so good in that regard and I wouldn't even run any of the others. There's also so few ways to beat Elesh Norn without playing 7+ mana cards. Those kinds of things the Unstable Obelisk is here for. I'm lucky to not see her often in my group!

Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and Staff of Domination because you want to be able to use the commander's ability as much as possible. Also, those are going to be huge targets once people realize what is happening. You'll want as much redundancy as possible.

For extra ramp, you could play Extraplanar Lens. To be a cuckhold and not give the benefit to anyone else you could play Snow covered mountains instead of regular ones.

Also, I think you could play some different big red stuff. Avatar of Slaughter could be hugely beneficial for you. Since you have to sacrifice him, you are the only one that gets the double strike benefit. Excruciator just to bypass any Fogs in your meta. Utvara Hellkite seems extremely beneficial because it will give you a dragon just for attacking. Plus, you already play multiple dragons. Spitebellows just seems funny here. It will always deal 6 damage to something! Furyborn Hellkite I feel like you could use if you made the deck a little different. Anything to deal one damage, to get a 12/12 flying for three mana. Hellkite Igniter seems good here, since you play an artifact subtheme. Hellkite Charger for the win. Scourge of the Throne for the same reason as Hellkite Igniter. Ryusei, the Falling Star for board wipes. Thundermaw Hellkite to tap all flying creatures so your attacks can get through. Akroma, Angel of Fury because she can just be a powerhouse. Combustible Gearhulk actually seems like a win-win for your deck. Neheb, the Eternal seems like he could benefit you with extra mana mainphase two. Conquering Manticore and Zealous Conscripts for similar reasons. Dragon Mage if you need a new hand. Combat Celebrant seems good here. Goblin Dark-Dwellers could be a possibility. Heartless Hidetsugu, dude yes!

I mainly searched for power, so I'm sure there are other creatures to look up with good ETB effects. After doing that search for you I realized that I like Feldon as a commander. Hope you don't mind if I make him based on your deck XD.

Looks like an aggressive deck :) It could benefit from Aggravated Assault, Scourge of the Throne (which fits especially well with your theme) and maybe Sword of Feast and Famine?

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense

Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka, World Render + your commander is an instant kill with commander damage.

Play a few multicolored spells with Ramos, Dragon Engine on the field and then produce some mana with him and throw down Dragonstorm. Whats better than playing cool dragons for FREE?

Scourge of the Throne would be a good board control card. Utvara Hellkite would quickly get you dozens of dragon tokens and so would Dragonmaster Outcast

I enjoy your in-depth description of the Scourge of the Throne.

Nice upgrades but you are missing card draw- Harmonize, Fact or Fiction etc.. A couple of boardwipes too, a singleton Wrath of God maybe? Ditch the Nihil Spellbomb for a tutor...even Diabolic Tutor is better than nothing! Oh yeah, and you're missing the best dragon - Scourge of the Throne is the bomb! I got mine for ten bucks last week but I think it's spiked since then :/

@Rabid_Wombat: Holy crap, did not see that Scourge of the Throne went that much in price. It was originally like $13 from cardkingdom when I was building this deck. This thing shot in price solely because of this new commander deck?! So glad that my friend traded me his for the Hour of Devastation I had. He didn't care and I asked him if he was ok with the value difference and he said it was fine. He wasn't use the Scourge of the Throne so hey, guess it is my gain. Yeah I am looking forward to playing this because of the fact it is dragons. In just about every card game that I could play, I would always build a dragon deck of some sort. Back when I use to play yu-gi-oh, I always had my main deck as a dragon deck or something that had a dragon as its all star card. Magic it was harder but with this new commander, the dream can be lived and I can't wait to play it. Some of my pretesting might show that a few more ramp cards might be nice. Also thinking of cutting Temple of the False God for Reflecting Pool or something along those lines. The two colorless is really situational and only usable for spells like Selvala's Stampede or Rishkar's Expertise. Most of the time my dragon spells get cost reduced so much that temple just doesn't shine.
