you running mosswort, may as well run Spinerock Knoll i mean, bory already got the 7 power. is the hammer to help sac lands? for haste, Rhythm of the Wild is amazing, just the cant be countered stuff is pretty great. Sylvan Safekeeper is a good land sac and good to keep your important pieces alive. i also thing Firewild Borderpost and Khalni Gem are cool. ><

drcatherwood I have it as my replacement fetch for uvenwald hydra while i wait for a few of my cards to get mailed in. Mosswort Bridge and Spinerock Knoll are going in, not sure what the second land to come out will be.

Suggested card replacements!

maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.

Thought Vessel --> Loxodon Warhammer

Worn Powerstone --> Gut Shot

The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.

Suture Priest --> Wall of Shards

Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.

Fireball --> Electrodominance

One more mana, and you get to cheat out Triskaidekaphobia or Axis of Mortality at instant speed.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance --> Necrologia

Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.

Marchesa's Decree --> Blood Celebrant

Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.

Syphon Mind --> Vexing Devil

I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.

Swords to Plowshares --> Snuff Out

This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.

Akroma's Vengeance --> Return to Dust

You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.

Chainer's Torment --> Restoration Specialist

not worth the life you put into it. Rootborn Defenses --> Unbreakable Formation

Just a strict upgrade IMO.

Lands:

Tainted Field Tainted Peak Spinerock Knoll Battlefield Forge Caves of Koilos Sulfurous Springs Mistveil Plains

cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

OK so the deck glitched out and it didn't work out the way I wanted it to so I will just put in a comment of what I would do/suggestions. 1. You have too many lands. 30-35 lands is what you would look for in a deck. So I would cut down to 35 lands and use those 5 that you cut out to get ramp. I would put in Sol Ring , Kodama's Reach , Zendikar Resurgent , Commander's Sphere , and Urza's Incubator . 2. I would also get rid of the things that are giving you non-dragon creatures. So I would take out Goblinslide , Devils' Playground , Dragon Fodder , Dance with Devils . This is so that you can use cards like Vanquisher's Banner and Door of Destinies so that you can pump up your dragons and do more damage! 3. You have some creatures that are there just to be there. I would replace all non-dragon creatures other than Dragonmaster Outcast . Dragons that you can use to replace are; Lathliss, Dragon Queen , Savage Ventmaw , Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Valkas , Hellkite Tyrant , Moonveil Dragon , and Thundermaw Hellkite . 4. Although your dragons can remove creatures you need to be able to deal with enchantment, artifacts, and you also have to protect your dragons as well! So I would remove Draconic Roar , Echoing Courage , Sarkhan's Rage , Savage Alliance , Stonefury , Bathe in Dragonfire , Devour in Flames , Make Mischief , Reduce to Ashes , Sarkhan's Dragonfire , Atarka Monument , Staff of the Flame Magus , Outpost Siege , and Retreat to Kazandu . You already have dragons doing damage when they Enter The Battlefield so I would take out instants or sorceries that are doing that. Plus I recommended taking out some of the ramp that you already had because there is better ramp. For removal I would suggest Beast Within , Naturalize , Decimate , Hull Breach , and Vandalblast . Now to protect your creatures I would add Heroic Intervention and Asceticism . 5. Last but CERTAINLY not least, MANA! Ok so I know I mentioned going down to 35 but even if you just take away 5 basic lands there are non-basics that I would take out that might fix you down to 35 and then I will give some recommended lands that might help. I would take out Crumbling Vestige , Gruul Turf , Looming Spires , Pinecrest Ridge , Quicksand , and Vivid Crag . I would put in Command Tower , Cinder Glade , Rootbound Crag , Mosswort Bridge , Spinerock Knoll , and Spire Garden . Ok so I know that is a LOT to take in but please take note that I am in no way a professional helper. This is all in my opinion and don't let me influence your playstyle. I am happy to answer questions if I can and I am here to help!

On face, the deck seems like a good budget deck. It conforms with the general standards for an edh deck and follows a clear strategy. However, I think that there are some problems with the deck. Although it is built on a budget, there are only 6 ramp card in total plus 2 cards which decrease the cost of soldiers. On face it looks ok, but paired with only 36 lands (one of which ( Temple of the False God ) being a half-ramp card) it is questionable. I would add another ramp (like Thran Dynamo ) and a land ( Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Spinerock Knoll ). Also, I would argue that the removal in this deck is weak. The only true removal spell is Swords to Plowshares while others with worse conditions, like Response / Resurgence and Spear of Heliod , can have some major downsides in a commander game. The other single target removal spells ( Steam Catapult , Intrepid Hero , Catapult Squad and Catapult Master ) are, quite frankly very limited and. In addition to the weakness of the removal, there are only 7 of them, which is, in my opinion, quite lacking, especially considering 4 of them are creatures and there is no enchantment or artifact removal. I would reccomend the extra investment for Path to Exile , and also consider Lightning Bolt , Vandalblast , Wear / Tear and Oppressive Rays . One final point is the colour wheel of the deck (next to the mana curve). I find that, for a 2 colour deck, there is far too little red for it to be worth playing. Because of this, there are relatively few red mana producing cards, meaning often you will not be able to play the few red spells that you will inevitably draw, they are dead cards (this is why i recommended Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds above). However, I would also like to complement the deck building, as the theme of the deck is very strong and maintained, and I hope to see it do well in play-testing.

Hey so I took a look at the deck. Your choices are very solid, not a bad card in the list. So that means that were talking about really fine tuning, and getting into some fairly knit picky choices. Some of this will depend on how fast your meta is, if its slower than its cool to go a little bigger, if your meta is a little faster either go faster or play removal to slow things down. But One of the first things I was looking at was just over all count cards. Creature count looks good, land count Id like to see you go up 1 to 37. I would like also like to see the enchantment count come down slightly, maybe subtract 2. I think the big change needs to be that your artifact needs to come up so that we can make sure that you always have metalcraft in the mid to late turns. On the same note Id like to see more mana ramp as well. Your ramp count is about 4 ish right now id like to see that closer to 8. Cards I would like to see added, Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone, are amazing sources of ramp, and Palladium Myr does a nice impression of worn powerstone plus can be an attacker late. Then Sensei's Divining Top is so good for everything that you want to be doing, metal craft and smoothing out draws. Its not out yet but Smothering Tithe looks like it will be incredible in this deck so I would add that when it comes out. Another artifact that looks very good is Shrine of Loyal Legions is an artifact that makes lot of artifact tokens, metal craft and power. Also looking at your maybe board, theres a lot of good cards in there as well. Conquerors flail is super sweet, especially if you are like me and prone to get blown out by cyclonic rift mid combat, or even just shutting off counterspells so good. A few other cards that I would add or at least think about are Windbrisk Heights, and Spinerock Knoll, also side note becareful with how many colorless mana producing lands you run it can cause problems especially early in the game. I have found myself cutting slayers stronghold of late since tapping out 3 is kind of a lot, unless its really late. Hanweir garrison is just much better IMO. Few more cards to think about White Sun's Zenith end step and hit big on your turn, and finally Gift of Estates and Boreas Charger and/or Tithe making land drops is so important, be sure not to get stuck on 4 or 5 lands. So those are the cards I would add or at least think about. Oh Cultivator's Caravan would be interesting also.

Next up cards to cut. This is generally the harder part. And as I mentioned you don't really have bad cards in the deck, so cuts will be difficult. Like I mentioned, I think enchantment count needs to come down a little. Do you find that breath of fury, and goblin assault are carrying their weight? Those might be the 2 that I would cut, though I haven't played Breath very much myself. Has curse of opulence performed well?

Lands - Do you find that you are getting value out of slayers stronghold, secluded steppe, and kher keep? Cut any that you really don't find yourself using.

Creatures - Cut 1 or 2 of your worst creatures. Has Tilonallis Summoner performed well? Firemane Avenger is sometimes awesome, sometimes not in my experience, potential cut. Are you getting value from mirror entity, I don't run it often but I feel like I never get to activate it.

Artifacts - heres my controversial picks...Do you find that sword of fire and ice and rogue's gloves are performing well? Fire and Ice is amazing but doesn't necessarily belong in every deck since 5 is a lot of mana to draw a card and shock something. Treasure Map is much cheaper and faster which may help the metal craft plan much more.

Anyway let me know what things are working and what things aren't, and about how long your games go turn wise and maybe I can help with the cuts a bit more.

Have you considered Boros Signet, Worn Powerstone and Gilded Lotus? Heartless Hidetsugu is game over if Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is out. Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and True Conviction are great for beatdown. Boros Charm is really versatile in this deck. You can swap Take Vengeance for Swords to Plowshares. Sunforger is the greatest card in Boros and can grab any instant at 4 CMC or less. // It's good to run Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Boros Guildgate are good for mana fixing. Slayers' Stronghold, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion and Rogue's Passage are good for combat tricks; Mistveil Plains brings recursion; Spinerock Knoll is great at cheating costs; Secluded Steppe and Forgotten Cave for card selection. // Revitalize, Lightning Helix, Demystify, Fountain of Renewal are subpar in this deck.
