Have you heard of the Worldgorger Dragon combo? It is useful in a deck like this, as it can provide you with infinite mana. I found that the easiest way to do this was by using Animate Dead. All the combo requires is two creatures in your graveyard, one of them being worldgorger, and you use Animate Dead on the dragon. It will cause all of your permanents to bounce, and then since Animate Dead also leaves, the dragon is sacrificed, returning all of your permanents. When Animate Dead comes back, it can reanimate the dragon, again. You can do this as much as you want, but you need another creature in the graveyard in order for it to be finite. I found this to also be useful in a The Ur-Dragon deck because you get so much card draw from the Ur-Dragon, and with all those cards you can cast all the dragons you have in your hand at the time, and with Scourge of Valkas or Dragon Tempest you can ping (or obliterate) your opponents because all those dragons enter the battlefield multiple times.

On another note, thank you for your comment on my The Ur-Dragon build. I did not know that Temur Ascendancy gives your creatures haste, and it really has great synergy with the Ur-Dragon, and is a far better version of the pre-made deck's enchantment, Elemental Bond, in a dragons deck.

I am curious as to why you aren't running Scourge of Valkas? It has fantastic synergy with Utvara Hellkite, Dragon Broodmother, and Dragon Tempest. Personally I would have it replaceNiv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, because it offers far more ability damage, and it's cheaper. The only drawback(get it?:P)is you don't get the card advantage he offers, but you still have several other options available to you for that already, so its not hurting you very much in that regard.

I don't think Keen Sense + Scourge of Valkas works the way you think it does. Scourge makes each individual dragon deal the damage.

It's probably a safe bet that anything that is currently in standard won't be included in these sets, since they usually have different design teams and are made around the same time, so yes, you should probably pick up a copy of Pride Sovereign and Regal Caracal since I can almost guarantee you that they're not going to be in there. In the same line, commander products rarely contain planeswalkers, so picking up copies of nearly any of the Sorin or Ajani walkers is possibly a safe hit. I suspect if they were to put any one planeswalker in this set it would be Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, as he was printed far back enough to warrant a reprint and best fits his tribe out of any of the other candidates.

As far as Captivating Vampire goes, I have absolutely no clue. Since The Ur-Dragon already gives you a cost reduction on dragons, I suspect Dragonspeaker Shaman may not be included, but I feel that Dragonlord's Servant will be taking its place, due to most of the dragons only being 2/3 generic mana in addition to the colored mana. Just a hunch though. I also have a rather large itch in my side telling me that they won't be including Utvara Hellkite, as it may be a little too much for a pre-con environment. That thing with the already spoiled Scourge of Valkas closes out games very quickly if they aren't answered. Speaking of Scourge, since it was spoiled, it probably means they aren't going to be putting Dragon Tempest in the deck, as a redundant Scourge also ends games very quickly.

Super speculations glasses off, what we really need to be stocking up on is Chaospheres and Mystic Decrees, thar be dragons and vampires heading this way! (And I guess Maze of Ith for the cats with shiny things tapped to their backs...) You distract them while I'm over here shoving nonsense into this cage of mine...

Thanks for the mention, Janiwimbo! I hope the Twinflame works out for you as well! It might be considered overkill, but here's a cool line of play:

that's 30 damage by t5 with room to have removed creatures!Scourge of Valkas + Twinflame is just nasty!

DarkLaw be thankful New Blood is for vampires and not dragons. Otherwise, you'd just see way more Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas shit going down.

Bloodsworn Steward seems pretty stupid. It's another way to give Krenko, Mob Boss, The Ur-dragon, etc. haste.

Speaking of which, I'm upset that it'll be in the vampire deck and not the dragon deck. But I guess they can't hog all the good stuff.

Also, if nobody already mentioned it, we got a Scourge of Valkas reprint.
