Blue is the second-best flicker color, and you're hard-pressed to find something better in Commander than Deadeye Navigator and Parallax Tide for flickering permanents out (Which is important if you're planning on playing Boardwipes that double as LD). As for Indestructible, Soul of New Phyrexia is probably the best you'll get asides That Which Was Taken .

I am looking for sources of indestructible that can be played in UR. I already know of Soul of New Phyrexia but I wonder if here's more. Maybe also a way to flicker my permanents so my own Apocalypse like effects won't destroy them.

Vlasiax : Not a bad idea, but I don't own a Mana Crypt at the moment. That will have to be a long-term goal.

Played this deck a few times yesterday and had some trouble dealing with "Indestructible" creatures (specifically, Soul of New Phyrexia and Spearbreaker Behemoth ). Thinking about adding Bonds of Mortality and maybe Hour of Devastation and/or Dismember . Any other ideas?

Also thinking about cutting down some of the more expensive dragons for cheaper ones (as painful as that will be). Going to try to include Damnation as well.

You are putting upon yourself a very dangerous restriction, so u need A LOT OF card advantage.

Here some suggestions:

Courser of Kruphix - Garruk's Horde - Vizier of the Menagerie - Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip

Need some kind of protection too:

Whisperwood Elemental - Soul of New Phyrexia

And to finish the game a one card combo

Wolfbriar Elemental

Thanks for the tips! You're making me very tempted to pick up some additional upgrades... If only I had the funds!


Thanks for your suggestions! First of all, I'd like to mention that your comment prompted me to update my deck's intro! That said...

I've never heard of Fated Return , Soul of New Phyrexia , or Hammer of Purphoros . I think I will pick up a copy of them, especially since they're so affordable! Will need to think of what to cut, however.

I didn't put in Dragon's Hoard , because I was concerned about having too many mana rocks. Is that something you'd be concerned about too? If not, how many mana rocks would be considered too many?

You're right, Bring to Light was an artifact of my The Ur-Dragon Deck before it evolved into a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. I've been able to play this deck <5 times, and Bring to Light has come in clutch once where I used it to tutor for a Curiosity that closed out a game. It really is just a financially cheap (and mana-expensive) tutor though, and I would be happy to replace it with a Demonic Tutor if I could afford one. While I don't have enough games to say with certainty, I am hoping that Bring to Light has the potential to be slightly more useful flexible as a means of indirectly stockpiling mana before a combo-turn.

I recently added the combo cards you mentioned, but I haven't played enough games to comment on their consistency (this deck is slightly too expensive for my playgroup at the moment). If they end up being too clunky or situational then... you're right: I should cut them. Is that how they performed in your experience?

I haven't considered Niv-Mizzet, Parun , but it does look interesting. It looks like it would serve the same purpose as Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , however, and the deck seems packed as is. Do you have any strong opinions on the matter?

I am considering cutting Ojutai, Soul of Winter and Scalelord Reckoner , because I haven't really gotten much use out of them so far. What do you think about those cuts?

Not quite sure what your budget is, but a reanimation package usually works well in a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. I always liked Fated Return for instant speed tricks or indestructible.

Speaking of indestructible Soul of New Phyrexia is a good card to make sure your board of scary dragons doesn't get wrath'ed away.

Another option to give you haste is Hammer of Purphoros

Mana rocks are good, drawing cards is good. I think the Dragon's Hoard should be in this to solve both issues.

I'm intrigued by Bring to Light in this deck. I guess it is a cheap tutor, but is seems limited. I would love you hear how you use it.

There are some fun combos pieces that work with different dragons Bear Umbra , Curiosity (are you planning to add Niv-Mizzet, Parun ?), and Tainted Strike ; are you able to get them to work that often? If not, they may be the cards to cut.
