Shivan Dragon Discussion

TearOpenTheVault on Rage of the Inferno

I would recommend taking out Shivan Dragon and adding cards like Monastery Swiftspear. You also need more direct damage spells, like Lightning Bolt. Whilst you have some elements that would be good in a madness deck, cards like Fiery Temper and Bloodmad Vampire need to be part of decks that can discard them reliably- and you don't have enough cards that can do that.

Also, I would recommend having more full playsets (the maximum of 4 cards allowed,) inside the deck. That way, you can draw the cards you really need more reliably at the time. Overall though, this seems to be a reasonable deck.

KnightSolaire on U/B/R Aggro Deck? Help LOL

if you dislike the deck you might as well dismantle it and make it into a black red hate deck; however removing low impact high cost cards such as Shivan Dragon and Air Elemental; dual lands are extremely cheap right now so dropping cinder barrens and etc bad tap lands for Dragonskull Summit and the cycle red black land would work well. Dropping Final Reward for a card such as Fatal Push or even Walk the Plank would be better as well

Shivan Dragon. Gotta get some classics in here.

hmm. those be good cards. here's what i think:

2 Mana Flare + 4 Shivan Dragon ---> 1 Ball Lightning + 3 Mountain (or Chain Lightning ) + 2 Enrage

Ball Lightning is cheap, is strong, has both trample and haste. downside is it's good for only one turn. but i do see your reason for Blood Lust. the Ball Lightning becomes a 10/1 with Trample and Haste and with it being an instant you can trigger it anytime you want. however a better instant, if you can find one, is Enrage. with that card you can choose how strong to make Ball Lightning. and with 21 mountains each producing triple mana you can pour a ton of mana into Enrage to make the Ball Lightning even more powerful.

hmm. here's what i suggest:

-2 Mana Flare (overkill for mana ramp. you only need 2 to have lands triple mana production. any higher and it's a flood.)

-2 Shivan Dragon (they guzzle up your mana which could be spent on better burns)

-4 Blood Lust (they aren't helping you out with burns)

+3 Chain Lightning (excellent burn card that can bounce)

+3 Mountain (extra mana)

SteelSentry on First deck you Built

6 months ago

My first deck was an 80-card pile of mostly Goblins, but included all the hard hitters that were in my dad's collection, like Shivan Dragon and Ball Lightning, with 4 copies of Firebreathing as my finisher (to enchant my Goblin Balloon Brigade or make someone unblockable with my Goblin Tunneler). I still remember when I came back to Magic and saw Krenko, Mob Boss in the case at my LGS.

My first Commander deck was also a Mono-R Goblins deck, headed by my boy Krenko, and later Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

TheSnackThatSmilesBack on Grixis Control (Help)

8 months ago

Shivan Dragon, Sphinx of Magosi and Stealer of Secrets aren't standard legal. Otherwise you've got most of the Grixis good-stuff that's in standard. Some of the one of's don't seem very useful unless you wanna build around them like Mirage Mirror and Riddleform. I have a build of it if you'd like to gather an idea from that. But most all of these cards are in there. Glad you're playing Magic again.
