Surrak Dragonclaw Discussion

1) I'm not at all surprised but I appreciate that commander players are so quick to gush about their favorites- and in this case, try to help other people find their guy.

2) I will throw in some suggestions myself, though I will stress once again that Magic, and especially the commander format is incredibly individual.

Ghired, Conclave Exile is an excellent example of lenticular design- a card that new players can appreciate at face value but more experienced players can break in clever ways.

Prime Speaker Zegana, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, and Surrak Dragonclaw can all head up a mean beefy bois deck.

Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen can head up a cool elf deck. Tribal is cool for newer players, and they also tend to place a lot of value in gaining life.

For a stronger and sexier tribal deck, maybe take a look at Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale. I know you said it should probably be 1-2 colors but hear me out, she's got a lot going for her. New players, in general, like to feel like they're doing stuff all the time. They also like being able to attack with strong creatures and make huge plays. I think the Gwyn is an excellent mix of the two, combining low-to-the-ground knights with long game card draw and strong equipment. Beyond that, knights have a strong, established flavor and it feels cool to be at the helm of an army of knights. She'd be my pick.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer could also be a fun equipment general. I would normally suggest Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, but new players tend not to think ahead to what they want to tutor up and that is not so good for gameplay.

And finally, if your kid is more into enchantments, I would personally suggest Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. Auras are fun to use and GW are the best colors with which to use them.

You can mix most of those into one good Surrak Dragonclaw goodstuff deck. Flash shinanegans, uncounterable eldrazi and other big things, ramp hard for X spells and or unlimited combat steps, Have Rashmi as a secret commander.

Having played Animar, it sucks having to tap 3 lands to play a 4 mana spell. Avoid pips and low Pip:Generic Ratios if possible . Every pip is mana you have to pay and we don't want to pay much. But cards like Surrak Dragonclaw and Maelstrom Wanderer are both good even though they have a full RUG in their cost

Also, you have a lot of value engines that work off creatures ETBing. However, Animar is your value engine. Why play Rhystic Study for 2U with a chance to draw cards when you can play Mulldrifter for U to get a 2/2 Flyer and 2 cards? Noncreature spells have to paid for in full, so they should probably interact with your creatures more. Mana doublers like Zendikar Resurgent are way too big to be worth much. Why double your mana when everything is basically free on turn 7 anyway.

Maybe more artifact creatures? X spells? Hangarback Walker ? Wurmcoil Engine ? More valuable Single Pip cards like Mulldrifter or Peregrine Drake . I know your degenerate self loves 2-3 card combos well Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake = Infinite Mana and Infinite ETB if something cares about other creatures. Also, probably should play Deadeye Navigator if you're playing Panharmonicon and maybe add some value ETB like Eternal Witness or Mulldrifter and Navigator can flicker Prime Speaker Zegana or Tishana, Voice of Thunder and get some insane card draw

Tuvasa's Codex of The Enticing of Endless Murder

Chainer's Codex of Oneirokinetic Neruotic Murder

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


(NOTE/LAST REGRET: When I'm done with a list, I'll proceed to update this one at a time, all without going all out like last time... Though I don't get why the Competitive Meter is basically Nonexistent on my decks when we're supposed to be able to turn back on now...)

(I can only do three decks at a time; & none of them are at 100 now. Please understand this is all I can do, even if I'm shunned.)

( Tuvasa, who hates Artifice, but loves Charms of Death )

Q1: This Deck is at 111 Cards. As this is an Enchantress Deck with some versatility, what 11 cards would you suggest for cuts, or even some for replacing the 99?

Q2: This deck also can count as a Voltron Deck. But I'd rather trade my Swords for High-Level Magecraft. (Where's our Guns? Goblin Sharpshooter had a friggen Minigun, which IS, in fact, a Real-World Firearm. X/). Any ideas for some Auras?

Q3 FINAL: Versatility is important in Enchantress; even if you want to swing BIG as a GoLion-Type CMDR. Outside of Stat Increase/Decrease, what other effects would seal the deal that aren't in/Are in, but could be better?

( Morophon, the Bountless: If Humans have no conflict, they are extinct. Let them bicker like an elderly couple already divorced.

Q1: After checking out some Modern Top8 Lists for Human Decks, I am sorry to say this 100 got pounded up 11 notches. So now I ask: What 11 Cards to cut for this deck? Is there any that can replace these, Human, or not?

Q2: Considering what Humans were shown on an Avg. 2 Month Old Human Tribal Modern Deck, which ones to keep, or return to this deck? Any from the Maybeboard deserving of the Second Chance?

Q3 FINAL: Do you think changing the topic of a whole Deck Help Thread is a good thing? If not, explain why; oh & please be as civil as you can; I'm still trying to have my wounds to heal.

( Chainer, Nightmare Adept, discards your schtuff; yours & mine, & I go Madhouse. )

Q1: Another deck over 100 at 111, As I still need cuts for this, was adding Razaketh, the Foulblooded , & even Vilis, Broker of Blood even worth the add? Is adding a Worldgorge Win combo that risky? I have many kinds of reanimation, but should there be any balance, or can there be a way to even recur the Recursion Spells? (Ponders...)

Q2 FINAL: in colors, do you think this deck has enough resources for the long run, or is the amount too miniscule?

NOTE: Some actually want me to use Anje Falkenrath instead, but she works like an ally to Chainer, Nightmare Adept . They collaborate Hand-in-Hand.

BATTLE REPORT: I'm truly sorry for doing something I know I've already done once before, & got shunned. Why do it yet again? Well, One was finished, but the other 2; originally 100, got more on the deck. I'd like to make them THEROS: BEYOND DEATH-friendly if need be; not just because of my decks being up to date all the time, but also that I can keep up w/ 2020; the Year of CMDR after the fall of Planeswalker decks. If you want, Maybe you could help with one deck, & call it a day if you want; I'm not urging you to do all three at once, honest.

Thank you for the help though, & I apologize for this motive yet again in advance; I just wanted to be more compact; even though I think I added more than before... DX

With Vexing Shusher having a guaranteed spot on this List, I still ask:

A: Prowling Serpopard

B: Surrak Dragonclaw ?

C: Some Non-Artifact Creature that can help wonders here too?

I wonder if you guys want to respond if you wish. One card left to add is all it takes.

BMHKain on

Back. But no decision. What would be the better of the two for this deck?

A: Prowling Serpopard

B: Surrak Dragonclaw

C: Some other card to replace both?

One cut remains, & I'm making more decks right now. I wanted to prove I can make decks on my own. Someone's going to have to allow me to use the Competitive Meter again...

Any suggestions?

BMHKain on

Well, I've now one card to add, but what to choose between the following?:

A: Prowling Serpopard

B: Surrak Dragonclaw

Once the decision is made one over the other, I'll confirm this as done; Vexing Shusher & Rescuer Sphinx included over Ancestral Statue (Thank you, WAR! Thank you!) & all.

Your opinions & answers on this?

Here's the ones I had a lot of fun with. I changed each of these into tricolor decks, so it's the dual color paired with the tricolor it corresponds with. I think any of the 20 are pretty fun and unique in their own way.

Dragonlord Ojutai / Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest extra turns/control

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born /Muldrotha the Graveside mill/grave control

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury / Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire goblin/dragon tribal

Mina and Denn, Wildborn / Surrak Dragonclaw cheating creatures/creature combo

Selvala, Explorer Returned / Mayael the Anima elf tribal/super ramp into creatures

Daxos the Returned / Ertai, the Corrupted enchantments and sacrifices

Meren of Clan Nel Toth / Anafenza, the Foremost sacrifices and +1/+1 counters

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter / Roon of the Hidden Realm bounce and etb abuse

Arjun, the Shifting Flame / Kess, Dissident Mage spell slinging and mass draw

Brion Stoutarm / Mathas, Fiend Seeker burn and destroy
