Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Discussion

You might try the Commander Deck Help forums rather than the Rules Q&A forums, but what I can offer is that infect/proliferate wants to run green/blue/black, which doesn't have any commanders that synergize particularly well (The Mimeoplasm and Vorosh, the Hunter at least use counters, though the wrong kind). Alternatively, good commanders would be Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, or The Scorpion God, but none of them will give you access to all the colors you want. It's about give and take and what aspects of the deck are most important to you.

RagedLuka Quicksilver Amulet looks nice, like Dragon Arch. I threw in Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon because I liked the possibility of killing people much faster with infect but also because, as you said he will get a lot of hate, my logic there was that it might distract people from larger threats. If I find a better card I will replace him though.

Also you should remove The Ur-Dragon from your main board.

Thanks for the comment, JoaoWockeez. Do you think it's worth it to play Balan anywhere in the deck? I just really like the artwork and the flavor, and his activated ability is pretty cool.
I'm not too worried about answers to flying... I've got some pretty versatile spot removal, but overall the deck is focused on ensuring that only one creature can ever attack me, so unless I'm getting one-shotted by Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or something, I'm not really concerned with blocking. That being said, what would you use if flying did end up being a problem? Just an equipment that gives flying?

The deck looks interesting and fun as hell to play.
On first look at your deck list I would recommend dropping Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. While he is a very powerful card you have almost $20 of your $300 tied up in a creature with no other infect for support. Your land count also seems a bit low i would recommend adding at least 2 if not 3 more lands.
Hope this helps +1!

Consider waiting as wizards is releasing 5-color dragon deck in their next batch of edh decks.. Consider replacing current dragons that you use with any of the following from this list: Utvara Hellkite, Scourge of Valkas, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Dragon Tyrant (this w/ haste or on scion = game over), Balefire Dragon (player targeted Plague Wind), Scourge of the Throne. Patriarch's Bidding is the card that makes scion tribal disgusting. Moltensteel Dragon on scion making it a 10/4 and then turning scion into Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon for lethal infect is an easy quick way to win. Most of your dragons cmc<6 are quite weak, consider not using them (ever).

Good call prosshrules. I had already begun to move in that direction because the land search both thins the deck and provides a way to shuffle things off the top once you've put them there with Scroll Rack. The five signets will definitely be next to go, but the rest of the rocks are probably good enough to keep.
