Silumgar, the Drifting Death Discussion

Icbrgr on Interplanar Grudge Match?

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius vs any of the 5 legendary dragons from Tarkir... Ojutai, Soul of Winter/Silumgar, the Drifting Death/Atarka, World Render/Dromoka, the Eternal/Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury...

I would be curious to know how the Dragon guild leader from Ravinca would fair against any of the future/would-be Dragonlords of Tarkir.

From the Hip... Despite the large following of Niv-Mizzet; I don't think he has what it takes to best any of them 1-on-1 battle to the death.... Anyone think otherwise?

Honestly, Mkltgd vs Oglor vs Fblthp for best homunculus. Fblthp wins, Oglor comes in second.

More seriously, Tasigur, the Golden Fang fights Silumgar, the Drifting Death rather than joining him in hopes of... something? Why'd he do it again? THAT would be a good backstory for Silumgar's person necklace

Utvara Hellkite + Silumgar, the Drifting Death

Is love, and leaves me deeply desiring more dragons with the trigger "Whenever a dragon you control attacks"

You're welcome. You deserve it.

Also, a little doubt: how good is Vorosh? I always thought a 6-drop without hexproof would be a little silly, since it gets hit by Path to Exile and Terminate, and even Murderous Cut in a super hipothetic scenario.

Have you tried Silumgar, the Drifting Death? I play it in a stupid esper list as a finisher, and he is pretty amazing.

Neotrup on Magnetic Web vs hex proof

Neither of the first two abilities of Magnetic Web target, so both of them will apply to Silumgar, the Drifting Death if it somehow has a magnet counter on it. The third ability does target, so it cannot target a hexproof creature an opponent controls.

In one of my newest decks i have the card Magnetic Web. My question is that can i use it against a hex proof creature like Silumgar, the Drifting Death and will the magnet counter stick to it?

TheRedGoat, thanks for those fixing options. I had forgotten about Celestial Dawn and had never heard of Joiner Adept! I'll look into them. In terms of the fate reforged dragons, I believe I'm only missing Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Ojutai, Soul of Winter. I've considered Silumgar as he effectively counts as a removal spell. I'm not sure about Ojutai though. Is 7 mana for a creature that taps things down worth it? I already have more 7-drops than I really want. What are your thoughts on Silumgar and Ojutai?

Etoilebane, I could see Cryptic Gateway being a great tribal card in a "go-wide" strategy. I'm not sure about it in here though. How often will I have two dragons I want to tap down (as opposed to attacking)? Appreciate the suggestion.

Just watched your video and really enjoyed it. Just some general feedback for your deck:

You may want to reduce your average CMC considerably. The Scarab God's ability is mana-hungry. Some possible cuts: Platinum Angel, God-Pharoah's Gift, Grave Betrayal, Orbs of Warding, Ever After, and Silumgar, the Drifting Death. Replacing a few of those with cheaper cards could make your deck more nimble and able to do more per turn cycle.

Possible replacements that are working great in my deck: Animate Dead, Necromancy, Entomb, Shriekmaw, Fact or Fiction, and Epiphany at the Drownyard.
