Scourge of the Throne Discussion

Really cool deck +1 from me bro!
Scourge of the Throne is pricey but having those 5/5 Dragon tokens attack the turn they enter play would be fully sick.

Hey there, I really like Rapacious One in my Xenagos deck, curves out of Xenagos, and sets you up to cast the real big stuff/multiple threats ( Worldspine, Giant Adephage, Balefire Dragon) after the table realises your going to kill them all.
I found that as my playgroup got used to getting hit for 30+ damage they began to lean heavily on wraths to try and stem the flow, so I began to shift to annoying, value beaters and recursion. Genesis regrows a creature at the low cost of 3 mana every turn, Vorapede is a fine beatstick without Xenagos, Feldon of the Third Path is an excellent way to get value out of your graveyard, too. Deadwood Treefolk was also surprisingly good, though it’s maybe outclassed by Greenwarden of Murasa, it still mashes in for 6 w/‘Gos out and blocks well. Eternal Witness is another option.
And Atarka, World Render, the “you take 24” cannon that gets better if you throw even a few extra dragons in ( Scourge of the Throne, Balefire, Dragon Broodmother produces a steady stream of chumps so you can swing freely each turn.

elgosu1337: They go infinite if you can make a token, because you can throw an expendable token copy into combat - who cares if they die? ;) Scourge of the Throne definitely requires a certain amount of clever planning, but that's not a huge issue.
You're right re:Jace, Cunning Castaway, though (although he's not a horrible draw effect himself, and he can make creature tokens). Dammit, I thought I was being clever XD he'll probably get cut for Bident of Thassa, then.
I'm running "payoff creatures" in mine as well (Hellrider, Sharding Sphinx, Utvara Hellkite, etc), but I prefer that my payoff creatures aren't completely useless when they're not repeatedly cloned (for example, Borderland Behemoth is terrible except under the circumstance where you successfully have it AND a copy effect AND Brudiclad).
Sorta the same thing re: Windreader Sphinx vs Consecrated Sphinx (though to be fair I could definitely run both). Consecrated Sphinx is ALWAYS amazingly good, while Windreader Sphinx requires me to have a board state and clone effects to do anything significant. Also, Windreader Sphinx is really overcosted :/ didn't even make the cut into my The Locust God list.
Thanks for your thoughts!

Hey Daedalus19876, I'm not sure if the extra combat creatures like Combat Celebrant and Lightning Runner will work well because they are small so most of them will die after one combat. Scourge of the Throne is tricky to use as well because to get the extra combats you have to attack with one the first combat, then the first one and another one the next combat, then the first two and another one and so on. Jace, Cunning Castaway doesn't work with Brudiclad because the tokens that get turned into Jace have 0 loyalty counters and die immediately.
You should try the payoff creatures in my Brudiclad deck like Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth, since they can win in a single combat with ridiculous amounts of damage. Stalking Vengeance is also good if you can boardwipe right away. Coat of Arms is also good because it turns even small tokens into big ones.
I would also suggest Windreader Sphinx over Consecrated Sphinx since you get to draw cards without waiting for opponents to draw, and you draw more cards with Windreader than Consecrated (6 Windreaders draw 36 cards right away whereas 6 Consecrated will draw 12 cards when your opponent draws next turn).

Looking good so far I'll just add a few notes if thats ok. Probably replace one of those Acquire with Bribery. Coalition Relic is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis. While Dragon Blood isn't the worst I think Unspeakable Symbol is most likely better (6 mana for the first +1 counter is rough) especially since you need kinda low life to trigger dethrone. Feast on the Fallen is a card that seems good but that I don't super like since to get max value out of it relies on your opponents attacking each other instead of you. Finally Fork or Twincast are always better than Doublecast.
I did not know this until today, not only does Marchesa's ability effect herself but it still triggers if she herself isn't on the battlefield so wrath effects like Damnation,Toxic Deluge and Blasphemous Act will basically only effect your opponents.
Soul Channeling is some sweet old school tech but I'd rather get haste so you can get those counters on asap since once they're on your team is safe, Fervor and Lightning Greaves are classics, Bloodsworn Steward, Urabrask the Hidden, and Dragonlord Kolaghan are also fair options.
On the creature front I won't say too much more other than maybe cosider a few cards that just get +1/+1 counters in other ways like Scourge of the Throne, Markov Blademaster, and Taurean Mauler. Although none of those are compulsory inclusions by any means.
ps. you might like Wild Ricochet

You should definitely cut some lands and add more Dragons/Knights. Try Utvara Hellkite, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Thunderbreak Regent, Scourge of Valkas, Hellkite Tyrant, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of the Throne.
You may also consider cards like Sarkhan, Fireblood, Dragon's Hoard, Crucible of Fire, Dragon Tempest, Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant. I'm no expert on knights, so I can't make any suggestions on that.

I have had a lot of luck with my God Save the Dragon Queen deck. Cards that have worked well for me that aren't on your list Heartstone, Skyship Stalker, Helm of the Host and Lightning Shrieker. If commander damage is how you wanna win Whispersilk Cloak, Nemesis Mask and Trailblazer's Boots are all great cards. Balefire Dragon and Scourge of the Throne are high end dragons that I wanna upgrade into.
