Skyline Despot Discussion

vibrabones on Jund dragons edh

Some suggestions: Fierce Empath and Wild Pair are inexpensive tutors that can fetch you some dragons; Skyline Despot, Balefire Dragon, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, and Tyrant's Familiar are really strong dragons that could easily find a place in this deck; you should probably run more mana ramp, like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach; and Rishkar's Expertise will give you great card draw and probably let you cast one of your dragons or other expensive cards for free.

Good luck with your deckbuilding!

How do you feel about Dragonlord Atarka?? She's great for a card that just comes in and wrecks a few weenies, or gets rid of a pesky planeswalker.

Violent Ultimatum feels grossly over costed, and could probably be replaced with a Beast Within?

Do you like cards like Ur-Golem's Eye, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Worn Powerstone? Also what are your thoughts with Grave Pact, since it doesn't seem to synergize well with the rest of the deck.

As far as other suggestions: Scourge of Kher Ridges is a great board wipe on a 6/6. Skyline Despot is great for drawing an extra card. (and I love bringing monarch into edh). Possibility Storm is an absolutely hilarious card, and ruins decks that need some sort of plan to function well. Thunderbreak Regent is good for protecting the rest of your dragons, just through fear of getting smacked. Hoarding Dragon is good for grabbing all the artifacts you're running. and the last one, Gratuitous Violence combos super well with Warstorm Surge and Crucible of Fire to just turn any one of your dragons into an etb maelstrom of death.

ok so some super cheap sugestions for you are Angel of Deliverance Ankle Shanker Banefire Marchesa's Decree Merciless Eviction Skyline Despot and my favorite Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts teysa in particular is cool because shes unblockable vigilance that if a creature takes the monarchy it gets destroyed, and you can always get it back

Acidic Slime needs to be a Bane of Progress; Eternal Witness needs to be a Greenwarden of Murasa or Paleoloth; Savageborn Hydra should be a Primordial Hydra;

The following should be switched for better shit:

Apocalypse Hydra, Myr Battlesphere, possibly Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths, Penumbra Wurm, possibly Purphoros, God of the Forge, possibly Skyline Despot (I know I suggested it but I still don't like it), Thought-Knot Seer because you only have four lands that will allow you to cast him

things to maybe put in:

Lurking Predators for like the third time, Greater Good

Skyline Despot also used to be in the deck, but once again, it only gets its ideal value when it sticks around. Dragon Mage and Knollspine Dragon are my main card draw engines, should the need for more cards arise, and they do their jobs well enough.

Here are some general recommendations to make your deck better.

Mind's Eye, Oracle's Vault, Mask of Memory, Sensei's Divining Top, Forgotten Cave, Hazoret's Monument, Runehorn Hellkite, Skyline Despot. YOU. NEED. CARD. DRAW.

Hazoret's Favor. Keeps your dragons from being exiled via sacrificing them, the sac trigger can be avoided using the same cards that avoid the exile trigger, it gives your more power on board, and gives a dragon haste if you hardcasted it or cheated it in with Belbe's Portal. Run this.

Hanweir Battlements. Replace Hall of the Bandit Lord with this. The battlements enters untapped, costs R to give a creature Haste instead of 3 life, and can produce colorless mana without having to pay life.

Thornbite Staff. Replace Puppet Strings with this. The staff costs 1 less to play, equips automatically to Zirilan when he ETBs since he's a Viashino Shaman, and the staff untaps him whenever any creature on the field dies for any reason.

Elixir of Immortality. A way to recover resources after a board wipe.

Feldon of the Third Path. "Revive" dead dragons that you sacrificed or dragons that were destroyed. Another way to recover from a board wipe.
