The Ur-Dragon

Legendary Creature — Dragon Avatar

Eminence - As long as The Ur-Dragon is in the command zone or on the battlefield, other Dragon spells you cast cost 1 less to cast.


Whenever one or more Dragons you control attack, draw that many cards, then you may put a permanent card from your hand onto the battlefield.

So i have The Ur-Dragon and Steely Resolve choosing Dragons to have shroud on the battlefield, then i attack. Its triggered ability triggers, drawing card/s then putting a permanent on the battlefield. I choose to put Runes of the Deus/Phyresis. Can I enchant it for the killing blow?

TheVectornaut on Eminence and morphing

"702.36c To cast a card using its morph ability, turn it face down. It becomes a 2/2 face-down creature card with no text, no name, no subtypes, and no mana cost. Any effects or prohibitions that would apply to casting a card with these characteristics (and not the face-up cards characteristics) are applied to casting this card."

Eminence on The Ur-Dragon applies only to dragon spells. Casting a dragon face down with megamorph means you'll actually be casting a 2/2 with no types. Therefore, it won't be a dragon and won't be affected by eminence. But based on the rule, it seems that effects that could apply to a typeless creature (like maybe Heartless Summoning) would successfully reduce the cost.

Does the eminence ability of The Ur-Dragon reduce the cost of morphing a Dragon creature such as Herdchaser Dragon?

I like the deck, Ramos has been a great way to get out The Ur-Dragon then hit for a 9 damage minimum is fun. I am a little disappointed that there is not Door to Nothingness in here for giggles.

The Ur-Dragon and lands

I'm not sure what more draw power i need:

The Ur-Dragon is one
Elemental Bond
Kindred Discovery
Phyrexian Arena
Rhystic Study
Temur Ascendancy
Sylvan Library
Skyline Despot
Sarkhan the Mad
Bident of Thassa

Exploration would be a great add considering i have 4 sorceries that can search lands. If there's any more draw power that I can add please feel free to share!

I love how not a single person here has recommended everyone's good friend, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund! Not only is he a haste enabler for your scary dragons, but if anyone steals your dragons or plays any dragons, you take THEM ALL! Another good dragon to use would have to be Dragon Broodmother, especially if you have Dragon Tempest and Scourge of Valkas out, since you will be throwing so much damage around it's actually stupid. People also discredit how good Sarkhan Unbroken can be in a deck that has his colours, so definitely think about him. Other than that, some card draw like Rhystic Study and Temur Ascendancy are good to have, and of course you have to have your removal package and ramp package, especially if you want to get The Ur-Dragon out any time soon. Scourge of Kher Ridges can be an amazing board wipe when you're in a bad spot, as can Balefire Dragon. I have my own Ur-Dragon deck that I play a fair amount, and I have a bunch of fun.

First of all, thank youyeaGO. Now here's the problem ; some cards, like The Ur-Dragon and The Locust God link to decks instead of card images and that's annoying. Weird too... Thank you for your superb work on this marvellous site!
