Whirlwind_2100 on The Ur-Dragon

Uh... Im not sure you know what your commander does based on your creature pool. On a scale of 1-10, i would rate this a 1.5, but i'll help you with that. You might as well be running Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. You have a small number of Dragons in the deck, and I noticed a bunch of useless non-dragon creatures in the deck.

32 lands is wayyyy to few, and you have an awful mana base, even on a budget, having only 1 tri-land and a random af arrangement of shock and gain lands.

You have little ramp, if any, which will slow you down greatly in a format such as commander Another concern is your lack of mana rocks. Why only one signet?

Your removal is pathetic, to be honest, with only one murder. Removal is IMPORTANT in commander, being used at both utility and a rich bargaining tool in the political side of the format.

But enough with flaming the deck, here is what I would put it.

First off, let's talk about your commander. It supports a heavy dragon tribal theme, and you want nearly all of your creatures creatures that either add to this theme or ramp you to get him out earlier. If you are to be running a non dragon creature, make sure it is a utility creature such as Reclamation Sage that can either ramp you or get rid of problems on the board.

Here is what I would cut if i was building him:

Creatures:

Ajani's Pridemate - No lifegain synergy and bad creature in EDH

Brineborn Cutthroat - A 2/2 with flash wont cut it in Ur

Corpse Knight - No sacrifice theme

Dreadmalkin - cmon, really?

Empyrean Eagle - Other cards do this a lot more efficiently

Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch - No madness or counter theme

Faerie Vandal - just no

Garenbrig Carver - bad in general

Gravedigger - not a dragon

Grumgully, the Generous - not efficent

Hackrobat

Kronch Wrangler

Artifact:

Utvara Hellkite

Silumgar, the Drifting Death

Scalelord Reckoner

Scourge of Valkas

Dragonspeaker Shaman - cuts down mana cost drastically

This is just a few thing I think the deck could need, obviously it needs ore board wipes and wincons, however this is a good place to start. I want to be clear, I dont hate the deck, but I Think it needs improvements to become and 8. For your first commander deck, it's just fine. Thanks for reading. Cheers

I'm not totally sure if this would work, but maybe add a couple of persist creatures? That would be a way to trigger your Desecrated Tomb multiple times. Also, I feel like this deck could really benefit from some sac outlets. Like on the turns where you don't want to do anything else, or you are flooding out, you can cast Gravecrawler, make a bat, sac Gravecrawler, cast it again, make a bat. I don't think that Nether Spirit would be at it's best in this deck, as it triggers on your upkeep and you will probably have other creatures in the yard. I would add a fourth Squee, Goblin Nabob in the place of one of them, and then maybe a sac outlet. Really cool deck though!

Corpsapult

Artifact

, exile a creature card from your graveyard: Corpsapult deals damage equal to the exiled creature's power to any target


My current favorite deck to play is my Fling Squee deck. Maybe the most fun deck I've ever built. Didn't even mean for it to be good, but it totally is. Don't know if Corpsapult would make it better, but then again, neither does Stone Giant or Airdrop Condor, but I use them anyway because they're funny. Corpsapult wouldn't work with Squee, Goblin Nabob, but it would with Squee, the Immortal.

Same challenge.

Thank you for the input!

I've wanted to find room for Elvish Reclaimer, yet I never could ablate a card. I enjoy Grapple with the Past, but I see reason for its exclusion.

I'll consider Squee, Goblin Nabob. It goes well with Survival of the Fittest, Faithless Looting, and Geier Reach Sanitarium, yet, save for those, it may be lacking for the rest of the deck.

Genesis is one I've loved in profuse, as with Vivien Reid, so I don't really wish to cut it.

As for Ajani Unyielding, farewell to it. The list already has World Shaper and I don't trow that it needs another effect like it.

Much obliged, and new changes loom.

Peacekeeper + Sun Titan my favorite white synergy :)

Grapple with the Past can go. Elvish Reclaimer seems worthy of a spot.

Squee, Goblin Nabob since this is not a reanimation list you need gas for Survival of the Fittest. Vivien Reid doesn't do enough for the strategy. Doesnt fit under Sun Titan.

Glory is awesome alongside Survival and brings versatile protection. Genesis used to be but with Eternal Witness and Sun Titan it now is lackluster.

Ajani Unyielding does nothing for this list. World Shaper and/or Splendid Reclamation

Genesis would be good, too, and maybe Squee, Goblin Nabob? Gamble for him (or some other tutor) and you can repeatedly top deck and dump your hand, knowing you'll get two cards a turn.

I love this start! A few things I've thrown together in a similar deck: Genesis Chamber , Panharmonicon , Heartless Hidetsugu , Squee, Goblin Nabob , Squee, the Immortal , Confusion in the Ranks , Furnace of Rath , Impact Tremors , Pandemonium , and Purphoros, God of the Forge . Purphoros may be too much for your low-cost but I love anything that does things upon ETB!

Hey altec thank you for taking the time to critique the deck. I like the suggestions you gave and it is really nice to have some prospective. The deck does need more ramp you are right there.

+1/+1 Counters: I do own Winding Constrictor and I like that it has a cheap cmc. I was also thinking about Corpsejack Menace for the same result. Also thought Solidarity of Heroes would be a fun trick too.

Tutors: I only thought Diabolic Intent because of the sacrifice trigger. If going cheaper I could add my Demonic Tutor

Sac Triggers: I like your idea of Squee, Goblin Nabob ...what about Squee, the Immortal ? Kind of the same deal but it would be harder for anyone to get rid of him.

Other: Altar of the Brood seems pretty good. I'll have to give that one a shot.

I'll do some more research and see how to implement these changes and go from there.
