Stormbreath Dragon Discussion

I've considered Molten Rain, actually! I am also considering Peak Eruption because it has a less intensive CMC and it deals 3 damage.

SuperLicorice, Bonfire and Anger are necessary boar dwipes for the decks that have a ton of dorks like Elves and Affinity, or who can operate on very few lands like Burn, and who can go wide with tokens. That being said I rely on Birds and especially Arbor Elf to ramp. The elf untaps a Forest that I have Utopia Sprawl enchanted to, allowing for a turn two Blood Moon or Stone Rain, which wrecks most decks.

Since I'm not playing Zoo, I'm not going to play their creatures, rather I play very efficient threats that have an immediate impact when they hit the board. Stormbreath Dragon is a 4/4 Flying Haste with protection from , which is very relevant. Inferno Titan serves a form of removal and can close the game quickly. Thragtusk gains life, which is very relevant, has a fantastic body, and gives me a 3/3 when it dies.

This deck has Stormbreath Dragon in it, in modern. I approve thus I gave it an upvote.

First of all: nice idea! I like the tribal theme and I like dragons as well.

Are you playing competitive with this deck or is it more casual play?

For competitive, I would focus more on dragons with cmc4 or cmc5 with haste, like your allready featuring Archwing Dragon.

  1. Glorybringer (this one may also get rid of some nasty creature your opponent controls)

  2. Hunted Dragon

  3. Stormbreath Dragon (which is safe from one of the most used white single-creature removal in Legacy, Swords to Plowshares, along with Path to Exile)

  4. Thundermaw Hellkite

Running four copies of Seething Song should provide you constantly with some pretty nice blows to your opponent's life points per turn three.

Maybe add some burn spells. I'll suggest Lightning Bolt as the alltime classic in mono red, along with Price of Progress (Legacy is most likely full of multicolored decks with lots of nonbasic lands to support them).

Thinking about archetypes, I wonder what you ought to do against control decks. You could try Cavern of Souls in your sideboard to exchange for an equal amount of Mountains when you face an opponent who keeps countering your dragons. Another archetype which is probably a lot faster than your dragons would be combo decks, like ANT and stuff. These decks struggle with an (off-flavour) Eidolon of the Great Revel from your board, because they need a lot of cards with cmc3 or less to get their combo runnning.

So long, thank you for reading ;)

Seizan, Perverter of Truth is a really nice addition to Nekusar EDH, since he burns, and allows Nekusar to burn your opponents some more.

Bloodchief Ascension synergizes well with Mindcrank, so there's that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell, I can only see two wheels in this deck (Time Reversal and Whispering Madness). In my opinion, you cannot have a Nekusar EDH without a decent number of wheels. I would suggest Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Molten Psyche, Windfall, Winds of Change, and Magus of the Wheel.

You also can try out Price of Knowledge and Dark Suspicions. You also can consider Gaze of Adamaro, Sudden Impact, Runeflare Trap, and Stormbreath Dragon.

Cards to take out:

Indentured Djinn while the logic is solid behind choosing him, he's each opponent "May" draw, allows them to opt out of the 3+ damage

Duskmantle Seer fit's the flavor, but isn't actually a draw which could easily net you less damage across the board.

Returned Phalanx this card takes up space for no real good reason

Trade Secrets is illegal in the commander/edh format

Swamp/Island/Mountain you have way too many lands in this deck you could probably run 10 less land and still be A-okay, obviously you should playtest it and tweak it accordingly.

Cards to consider:

Arjun, the Shifting Flame my friend runs this guy in a red/blue locust god EDH it forces all sorts of draw on everyone.

Graceful Adept living Spellbook/Reliquary Tower

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Later game nets you heavy amounts of draw and makes your opponents lose any card advantage you might give them.

Stormbreath Dragon with the amount of cards you should be forcing your opponents to draw his monstrous will be devastating

Sturmgeist you're going to have a fair deal of cards yourself

The Locust God tokens for days.

Viseling hand sizes will easily be 4+ damage will be dealt.

Howling Mine forces draw

Font of Mythos forces more draw

Archmage Ascension why draw cards like a plebeian when you could tutor all the cards?

Fevered Visions essentially 2 damage a turn every turn.

Forced Fruition easy 7+ damage

Price of Knowledge Damage for days

Underworld Dreams it's like have 2 nekusar

Well of Ideas All the draw.

Thanks smiffdemon for the suggestions! I have looked over the deck and made some substitutions based on your advice. I will list the changes here so people know what I swapped out. Furyborn Hellkite for Kilnmouth Dragon, Drumhunter for Dragon Mage, Overwhelming Stampede for Xenagos, God of Revels, Moonveil Dragon for Moltensteel Dragon, Ryusei, the Falling Star for Stormbreath Dragon, and Sight of the Scalelords for Harmonize.

Nice budget build! I'll try to stay away from really expensive upgrades.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka herself is an instant commander damage kill. Xenagos, the Reveler is also good for ramping.

Stormbreath Dragon is only a few dollars and can wreck those high draw spell control decks that you see at commander tables when it turns monstrous. I also like Moltensteel Dragon because you can power it up without any mana investment. Kilnmouth Dragon is a beast especially with double strike. Dragon Mage is awesome hand disruption for you opponents and a wheel effect for you when you dont have the right cards in hand. Knollspine Dragon fills a similar role, allowing you to often draw a massive amount of cards with the damage you're gonna be shelling out. Always good in Gruul colors. Speaking of, I'd definitely pick up a Harmonize and throw it in there. That card is reliable in any deck with green.

Ramp super hard and you can probably even consider Dragonstorm. Alternatively, if you find yourself struggling to get enough mana to play multiple spells Quicksilver Amulet, Belbe's Portal, and Dragon Arch are winners.

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense

Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka, World Render + your commander is an instant kill with commander damage.

Play a few multicolored spells with Ramos, Dragon Engine on the field and then produce some mana with him and throw down Dragonstorm. Whats better than playing cool dragons for FREE?
