Shivan Dragon Discussion

Lordeh on First Fire Deck

Howdy, when it comes to making a deck the first thing you need to pick is a theme and/or win condition. If you have no idea what kind of theme you are going for you can just look up other archetypes that people have already created.

From what I can see you are going for a kind of Red/White Knight/Dragon aggressive creature theme using what cards you have on hand. That is perfectly fine but what your main goal should be is to find out what are the most efficient creatures/cards available in those colours and work towards getting them.

Having 4 Inspiring Veteran is a good choice as you try to max out the cards you want to see in your hand.

I suggest getting your hands on some Embercleave as the double strike and trample can give you the extra damage you need to close out a game. Consider swapping out your Shivan Dragon for a couple if you can afford them.

Although not a knight Bonecrusher Giant is a solid red card which can act as removal for small creatures and/or a 2 damage to your opponent as well as coming down as a creature afterwards.

Instead of Jaya's Greeting have a look at Lava Coil . Although it is at sorcery speed instead of instant the extra 1 damage and exile can be hand against a range of creatures.

I would also try to include some turn 1 plays such as Fervent Champion or Weaselback Redcap for early damage.

Just check the MTG gatherer website and look for cards you find interesting within a theme and see what else pops up at you.

Good luck.

Cut Skewer the Critics add Lightning Bolt . if your not trying to keep it budget, cut Diabolic Tutor add Demonic Tutor . cut Shivan Dragon , there are so many better creatures out there. if your not trying to keep it budget, cut Evolving Wilds add Prismatic Vista . if your not trying to keep it budget, cut Rakdos Guildgate add Blackcleave Cliffs .

Kogarashi on Does Scion Retain Hexproof and ...

The Scion's copy ability overwrites its own abilities, though, as most copy abilities do. So if you activate the Scion to copy first a Shivan Dragon and then Chromium, the Mutable , then activate Chromium's ability once that copy effect resolves but before the other, the effect copying Shivan Dragon should still replace the Scion's traits with whatever's on Shivan Dragon , not just add to them. Shivan Dragon doesn't have hexproof or unblockable, so the Scion would not retain those from the Chromium ability.

Basing this off the ruling on Scion of the Ur-Dragon where it loses its copy ability when it copies:

  • When Scion of the Ur-Dragon becomes a copy of another Dragon, it loses its copy ability for the rest of the turn. (2006-09-25)

It's not copying the other dragons' traits in addition to whatever it has.

Izzet generally doesn't struggle against aggro. Especially right now. My advice is that if you want to give this deck flavor, you're looking at Arclight Phoenix , Crackling Drake , Erratic Cyclops , and Guttersnipe .

What I'm curious about is where your removal is. I suggest flipping into midrange. It's flexible and what Izzet does best. For your instants and sorceries I suggest 2x Lava Coil , 3x Jaya's Greeting , 3x Sinister Sabotage , 4x Opt , 2-3x Mission Briefing , and 2x Ral's Outburst over your current noncreature spells. Why aren't you playing at least one copy of Chemister's Insight ?

Your curve is too saturated to be an "aggro" deck, which is best defined by keeping your curve low to outpace your opponent through damage. What you should consider is changing into midrange, as it's more of what this deck is seeking to perform as.

My last note is that you are playing some bad cards. Dreadhorde Twins , Invading Manticore , Bone to Ash , Goblin Gathering , No Escape , Nahiri, Storm of Stone , Sleep Paralysis , and Slimebind . Cards (not already mentioned) that are bad in an aggro deck are Murmuring Mystic , Shivan Dragon (seriously not a good card), your whole counterspell suite, the Chandras, and Izzet Guildgate will slow you down behind your opponents.

AndyM: That's incorrect. Just as Shivan Dragon does not buff all creatures named Shivan Dragon, and only itself, Aurelia's use of name only refers to that particular object, not any other objects with that name.

Again,

  • 201.4. Text that refers to the object it’s on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of any name changes caused by game effects.

Replace: Gray Merchant of Asphodel for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

Herald of War for Liliana's Contract (Card Draw!)

Shivan Dragon For Sephara, Sky's Blade (Cooler creature)

More card draw and mana ramp would do this deck really well. Make the tough choice to get rid of some of the expensive creatures. You can favor creatures and cards that change the board state the turn they come in rather than later.

Boros Battleshaper for Angel of Serenity (Targeted Removal)

Disciple of Bolas for Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice (Duh)

Assemble the Legion for True Conviction

I would also try to decrease the average converted mana cost. This deck feels slow and bulky. Add in the appropriate mana ramp. Some artifacts that cost 2 or less that give you mana. Like the Talisman of Hierarchy , Wayfarer's Bauble or Talisman of Conviction .

If you rebuild it: 10 Ramp Spells 5+ Removal (This includes creatures that remove, i.e. Angel of Serenity . 10+ Draw Spells 30ish leftover for the cool stuff.

If you are new to Magic first things first, congrats on joining the game hopefully you enjoy it.

On to some deck advice, you need to cut Bonethorn Valesk , Goblin Hero , Rock Jockey , Goblin War Strike , Chaos Charm , and Seething Song . These cards aren't legal in the modern format, which I'm assuming is what you are building for. Cutting these also makes your deck a 60 card deck, which is the correct size.

I don't know how familiar you are with Magic so far, but there are a couple different formats. I would suggest asking the friend who gave you cards more about it, or read up on them.

You have quite a few cards, but mostly goblins. A popular goblin deck you could play might be 8 Whack. Look into it if you ever have a desire to play competitive magic.

If you are just looking to play casual Magic however, here is my advice.

Swap out 2x Tremor , 1x Volcanic Hammer , and 1x Lava Axe , for 4x Skewer the Critics .

I would also swap 1x Sokenzan Bruiser , 1x Endbringer , 1x Shivan Dragon , and 1x Guardian of the Ages , for 4x Goblin Grenade .

Swap 2x Mountain for 2x Devastating Summons

Lastly I would swap 1x Myr Moonvessel , 1x Chainwhip Cyclops , 1x Vulshok Berserker , 1x Canyon Wildcat , for 4x Bomat Courier .

This is what that deck would look like,Ahivian red Updated, hopefully this is helpful.

I think that is a good place to start, if you would like any more help other than that, just ask.
