Sunscorch Regent + Archangel of Thune. Your opponents can't cast things without you gaining life and getting huge creatures.

This hurts my eyes....I'm not a competitive player by any means, but this is soooo all over the place I think most wins/interactions would be pure luck.

I have to give you major props for putting these to Partners together... they lack synergy so much, that's why there's no frame of reference. On the other hand if you force them to have synergy you could have a very unique and fun deck on your hands. I think the only way to do this is with (mostly) artifact creatures that etb with/benefit from +1/+1 counters. Even going this route feels weird without access to blue.

Anyways...suggestions for the card pool....

Arcbound Crusher, Arcbound Reclaimer, Arcbound Stinger, Etched Oracle, Flowstone Sculpture, Lunar Avenger, Mindless Automaton, Spincrusher, Suncrusher, Triskelion, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Dark Impostor, Death's Presence (stacks with Reyhan), Then for any other idea's I'd start looking at the 3 billion Atraxa Decklists that have popped up this month for stuff like Contagion Engine, Sunscorch Regent or Renegade Krasis or whatever.

Anyways +1 Upvote for bravery on mixing these Partners

I feel like somewhere with Dragonlord Ojutai, Sunscorch Regent, and Orator of Ojutai is way more powerful, with Silumgar's Scorn being another payout. Maybe there is just a 4 color Dragon control deck. Ultimate Price, and Sinister Concoction are better removal than Unlicensed Disintegration alone, and the synergy with Torrential Gearhulk isn't good enough compared to the cost reduction.

sry my fault its Exquisite Blood for the combo. i would cut Pillory of the Sleepless for Path to Exile or Smite as budget, Divinity of Pride and add more Cliffhaven Vampire or Sunscorch Regent.

Major issues detected if too many players (6 players during the playtest) :

Sunscorch Regent --> too powerful ?

Phyrexian Gargantua+Tempt with Reflections --> drawing 10+ cards leads to a 20 minutes turn for the player who has to make his choices.

Fervent Denial --> too much question about "priority" : it seems that instant cards with flashback are not a great idea here.

You can comment in english of in french ;)

*** in english :p

After a first playtest with this deck, yesterday (6 players), here are some of the major issues :- life gaining cards must be limited-massive drawing cards is a major issue (because it slows the game)- flashback instants cards should'nt be included

*** en franais :

Sur la premire partie avec cette liste, voici les dsquilibres remonts :- Sunscorch Regent est peut tre trop fort, mme s'il reste ciblable et doit reconstituer ses marqueurs s'il est ranim depuis le cimetire. Sa capacit d'vasion associe aux gains de vie et sa force croissante en font une carte probablement trop forte dans ce format. Cela dpend cependant beaucoup du nombre de joueurs. Nous tions 6 joueurs, cela a aid en faire LA grosse menace de la partie.- Tempt with Reflections associ une crature permettant de piocher comme Phyrexian Gargantua a pos un rel problme en permettant un joueur de remplir sa main ds le premier tour. Au final, ce n'est pas tant une question de dsquilibre (car le joueur avait sacrifi bon nombre de points de vie dans l'opration, et restait sensible une destruction de masse) qu'une question de rythme qui s'est pos, avec un tour qui a dur plus de 20 minutes. La pioche massive est un rel soucis qu'il faut viter.- Je pense galement supprimer les phmres avec le flashback pour viter les questions de rgles sur la "priorit" sur ces cartes. Il n'y en a que deux dans le deck actuel donc a ne posera pas de gros soucis.

I would cut down dramatically on your big expensive dragons. I know that is what you really like but this deck is just so expensive at the moment. I would go for instance Sunscorch Regent is awful and I would get rid of all the cards that cut down on the price of you dragons and add more removal. I would try and go down to one copy of each of your big dragons (Dragonlord Atarka, Dragonlord Dromoka, Dromoka, the Eternal and Atarka, World Render (I would add 2x Stormbreath Dragon as well)) and then play Thalia's Lancers plus Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light like legendary Anya from old standard.
