Shivan Dragon Discussion

diamond_diesel on Kaalia of the Vast

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.

Well... I would definetly try to tinker a Little around,to be honest I don't think the deck will work out like this,you have way to few lands as most decks run around 35-37 normally and with a manaintensive tribe like Dragons it could also go up to 39.

so I will give some cut suggestions:

Coordinated Assault +Thunderstrike not really neccesary you almost always have the biggest creatures on board so attacking/blocking shouldn't be that much of a problem

Dragon Fodder + Krenko's Command the early blocker aren't worth that much,most of the time,I would advice to get additional ramp to get your Dragons out faster so maybe try out Cultivate + Kodama's Reach with some added basiclands

Now to the heartbraking part to cut some Dragons(40+ creatures is already extreme) if you want to keep some for your flavour it isn't wrong I just want to help to improve your expirience with the deck.

Dragon Hatchling + Dragon Egg + Furnace Whelp these cards have really low Impact on the game so it would be better to cast any kind of ramp to these cards to get your big bad Dragons out earlier.

Freejam Regent not enough artifact's to utilize the improvise mechanic so kinda overcosted

Knollspine Dragon drawing Cards is nice but if I'm not wrong Kindred Discovery was in this precon and it will probably help more then this,as you would Need a boardpresence before casting it to deal dmg

Progenitus it's really hard to cast and not even a Dragon...

Shivan Dragon one of the most iconic cards of magic...but it's kinda bad in this time,where creatures can be way more powerful then this

Tyrant of Valakut just seems underwhelming it's an average Body for a Dragon but if you want additional removal maybe something like Swords to Plowshares would simply be better

Vampiric Dragon overcosted and not that strong in itself

Volcanic Dragon underwhelming…

I know that it seems harsh to Judge some of your decisions but bear with me.

What would I add:

Many lands already said what was normal for most EDH decks also rampspells to get your big beaters out a couple of turns earlier

Removal would also help greatly.

Protection like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to get through with your best creatures.

Last but not least Urza's Incubator , Temur Ascendancy are both cards that i really enjoy to draw with my Ur-Dragon deck.

Hope my critique helped a Little to let the lizards fly higher then ever befor

Deck Edit 1:

Rishkar's Expertise out -> Ruric Thar, the Unbowed in

Shivan Dragon out -> Iona, Shield of Emeria in

Song of Freyalise out -> Worldly Tutor in

Celestial Purge out -> Teferi's Protection in

I have in my collection an Avenger of Zendikar , a Baneslayer Angel and a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger . Not sure if these are upgrades for anything already in the deck, so would love some feedback on what people think??

I'm pretty sure the bad Shivan Dragon is legal. I'm no scientist, but I'm going to put the blame for that one on TappedOut.

-1 for the basic name

-1 for not including Shivan Dragon

1/10 too competitive

DemonDragonJ on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

I definitely like the new Gruul mechanic, riot; again, as with the Simic, it is the least interesting of the three mechanics that that guild has had, but it is an improvement upon unleash in the same way that adapt is an improvement upon monstrous.

However, why is frenzied arynx's ability so expensive to activate? Using both Shivan Dragon and Two-Headed Dragon as examples, the arynx's ability should have cost only 3 mana to activate.
