Stormbreath Dragon Discussion
6 days ago
The deck features several early removal options Abrade, Lightning Bolt, Incinerate and Anger of the Gods to try and maintain us in game in the early turns. Lightning Bolt and Incinerate are also an option to close the game at a late stage.
Goblin Chainwhirler serves a double function: he is a good blocker and a nice board wipe from early small creatures.
This deck is meant to be a budget deck below $250.
Please give your feedback.

Looks like alot of fun! Coat of Arms would go well in this deck, as would Dragonlord's Servant. Coat of arms is a must have for tribal, as it makes your board very difficult to deal with and can lead to a quick victory. Dragonlord's Servant lets you cast dragons quicker. I'd also recommend Stormbreath Dragon.

The one you missed is Glorybringer.
Yes, you can very much play that deck. No idea why you want it to be Rakdos though.
Here is a list of decks within the site on this idea:

You'll definitely want to go up to at the very least 24 lands. You could run Stomping Ground or Cinder Glade. You could also splash black for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire since s/he's really cool. To do this, Blood Crypt or Smoldering Marsh are available.
I would cut the Spit Flame and Banefire for Lightning Bolt and the 4th Draconic Roar, even though it hurts the dragon flavor. This is mostly because Bolt can go to face and as it stands, you don't have the mana to get a big Banefire going. The 3 damage from bolt will let you deal with most planeswalkers and provide any extra reach you need. I would also a 3-1 split of Glorybringer and Stormbreath Dragon since Stormbreath can't get hit with Path to Exile, which is pretty big.
I'd recommend going down to 1 Lathliss, Dragon Queen as she is very expensive, mana wise, and replace those two with Verix Bladewing, since he comes down much faster and can get you two dragons later in the game.
Cards like Adventurous Impulse and Vanquisher's Banner can always be helpful since one lets you sift through your deck to find what you need and the other buffs your team and rewards you for landing more dragons.

I think you should not build around Rakdos' ability too much. If you put in too many high casting cost creatures you'll be dead in the water if Rakdos gets answered (and he will get answered). Putting too much stock in Rakdos' ability is a mistake, and that is what is making your deck clunky (resulting in you feeling like you have issues balancing your deck, when the actual issue is that you are placing your eggs in a fragile basket)
Instead, build a solid BR midrange deck with a normal mana curve. Treat Rakdos as a undercosted beater that gives you mana discounts when you deal damage. Put in the efficient 5-mana dragons and demons and make them the mainstay of your force. Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon(helps you trigger Rakdos), Indulgent Tormentor...Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite.. these will not rot in your hand when Rakdos gets answered, and are credible threats on their own. They are still good with Rakdos - swinging with Rakdos and playing two 5-drops for 4 mana is still an explosive play.

Haha you're welcome! Honestly I ran your deck through some playtests and really enjoyed it. Really feels more like a dragon tribal deck than my own Ur-dragon tribal deck! If you can, you may want to test some of the following changes:
- (2) Dragon Hatchling
- (4) Furnace Whelp
- (5) Hunted Dragon
- (5) Lightning Shrieker
- (6) Shivan Dragon (though I understand if you leave this in cause its the OG dragon)
- (6) Shockmaw Dragon
- (6) Freejam Regent
- (7) Dream Pillager (Draw is important but I feel that the body is not good enough, especially since it has to connect)
- (8) Bogardan Hellkite (the effect is underwhelming imo, though it does get better with the Conjurer's Closet)
- (Technically 3) Moltensteel Dragon (can be played for cheap and has a free pump your opponents have to play around)
- (4) Thunderbreak Regent (efficient and good ability)
- (5) Hoarding Dragon (one of the few red tutors, if people waste an exile effect on this its fine)
- (5) Thundermaw Hellkite (gives the ability to alpha strike!)
- (5) Stormbreath Dragon (can blast people with big hands)
- (6) Warmonger Hellkite (forces everyone to attack!)
- (6) Flameblast Dragon (lets you burn out utility creatures, blockers, players. Late game it can burn out someone on its own!)
- (7) Spawn of Thraxes (great with the Conjurer's closet, has an even higher ceiling than Bogardan)
- (7) Skyline Despot (Here's your draw! Not sure who's going to attack into the guy with a board full of DRAGONS. Also brings the monarch subgame that promotes combat!)

i can certainly see how that can be awesome M_Malcom. I like the synergy Boros Reckoner has with Skred as well as all the 2 damage burn spells like Magma Jet/Pyroclasm with the added bonus of a battlefield presence. Im gonna playtest it with replacing Molten Rain/Stormbreath Dragon and see how it pans out. Thanks!

Also, I feel that you don't really need to go all in on huge casting costs in order to benefit from your commander. There are great 5-drop dragons and demons that really help you gain board presence in the early game, but still provide great value when cast with the Rakdos discount. Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon(helps you trigger Rakdos), Indulgent Tormentor...Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite.. These creatures make it such that your deck doesn't fall flat on its face when Rakdos gets answered, which is a mistake I see often with Rakdos Lord of Riots. Casting two five drops for four mana is still backbreaking.
