Silumgar's Scorn Discussion

sylvannos on Need Help - Reworking Modern ...

I've been toying around with a Dragon Control list myself. What I've been thinking of is:

2x Cavern of Souls
9x Forest
1x Kessig Wolf Run
3x Mountain
4x Stomping Ground
4x Wooded Foothills
-------------------------------------------
Land (23)

4x Stormbreath Dragon
4x Thunderbreak Regent
4x Thundermaw Hellkite
-------------------------------------------
Creatures (12)

4x Anger of the Gods
3x Blood Moon
4x Lightning Bolt
2x Planeswalkers (likely Chandra, Flamecaller and/or Garruk Wildspeaker)
4x Pyroclasm
4x Search for Tomorrow
4x Utopia Sprawl
-------------------------------------------
Other Spells (25)

Sideboard:
-------------------------------------------
1x Blood Moon
2x Choke
1x Crumble to Dust
3x Destructive Revelry
1x Molten Rain
3x Obstinate Baloth
1x Shatterstorm
2x Thragtusk
1x Thrun, the Last Troll

The idea is to just sit on removal, toss out ramp spells, then curve into large dragon after large dragon. If you add blue in your list, I'd prioritize Serum Visions, Sarkhan Unbroken, and Silumgar's Scorn. Courser of Kruphix is also a good option, and you have those in your list.

Blood Moon and a planeswalker could come out for 4 copies of Glorybringer.

If you're not going to use Anger of the Gods and Pyroclasm maindeck, I'd strongly recommend Birds of Paradise over the other mana dorks in your list. Even then, I'd play Search for Tomorrow alongside it. That way, you set yourself up for consistent turn 3 dragons into more dragons on turn 4.

Hey I really like Temur Ascendancy and Silumgar's Scorn I'll definitely add those to my deck. I think maybe adding a Stubborn Denial could be cool and I agree more mana acquiring cards!! Good luck

Hey there! I saw your Reddit post asking for help, so I decided to leave a comment here because I like T/O comment syntax better. In any case, I would probably focus more on your control and voltron themes, and cut out cards that don't help either of those plans (mainly the Wizard subtheme, I'd stick to just 2 plans).

Hope this helps!

This Reddit thread has a lot of good answers. Mainly, it's the fact that you can't expect to always be able to cast it. If it was something along the lines of Silumgar's Scorn (i.e. Force Spike if you don't bounce a creature, Counterspell if you do), I would like it a lot more.

How bad the "ritual-to-dragon" thing is, depends mainly on rituals, for example Chandra, Torch of Defiance, or Koth of the Hammer are both real fine rituals.

Dragons are not that bad.
I would argue that Stormbreath Dragon is one of (if not "THE") best beatstick in modern, because most decks have no way to remove it, it gets huge, and has good chance to sweep small creatures from the board.

And the are some less awesome but "ok" dragons like Thunderbreak Regent. (maybe Mirrorwing Dragon?????)

And more importantly there are really great cards that require you to have dragons, like Silumgar's Scorn - its a modern legal Counterspell (!!!), or a better Logic Knot, but that probably doesn't say much to most people, who don't play (draw-go) control.


The main problem with dragons is the sheer number of tempting cards that "were good in standard" Crucible of Fire, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Bogardan Hellkite to give some examples.

And that doing more viable things seems like giving up on the idea, since they are not named for dragons.

Still dragons are a perfectly good endgame plan for skred.
(And they could probably be fit into the hollow one shell as big payoffs, that would also be nice imho)

Here's a few ideas:

Temple of the False God for extra ramp

Shrine of the Forsaken Gods since you have so much artifact ramp.

Thespian's Stage to copy your value lands

Silumgar's Scorn for all the wraths and other hate

Card like Strip Mine or Dust Bowl to get rid of problem lands

Draconic Roar and Silumgar's Scorn work well with this deck as long as Arcane Adaptation is online

Thnak you Icbrgr, but if I would play Silumgar's Scorn, it would be only because its more dragon flavored. I mean, Counterspell is just better and I happen to have a few copies, but for now I prefer Dissolve because of the scry it gives.
