The Ur-Dragon Discussion

LuciferDarkstar on Atraxa Amazeballs

zerowner, I forgot to update that card. I did switch out Call the Gatewatch for Deploy the Gatewatch when I went from my Walker/Infect version of this deck. I'll update the deck list in a sec.

And no Oath of Jace because I completely forgot about it when making this a true superfriends deck. So thanks for the reminder on that!!!

I don't have any flip walkers because I don't currently own any. I built this deck with cards from decks I no longer use. I plan on selling my Urzatron cause Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are crazy right now, so I'll look into getting a bunch of cards for this and my The Ur-Dragon deck.

I've never really had a game where I haven't gotten color spread by turn 3 or 4, so color fixing has never been an issue thus far. Though it could use the mana ramp for speeding it up a little bit. I thought about running the moxes like Mox Sapphire etc but apparently they are banned, which makes no sense since they are legal in Tiny Leaders.

I do have Teferi's Protection in right now which is the best fog effect out right now, especially for multiplayer games.

I just don't have much space left. If I pull out the 4 Praetors' and Toothy, Imaginary Friend that gives me 5 spots that I'm comfortable changing. Oath of Jace, Cultivate and Kodama's Reach take up 3 so far. So I could add an actual Fog and something like Tangle would work great.

And I agree that Zur the Enchanter could be a great pick. So I'll have to mull that one over.

Thanks for your input, I definitely appreciate it.

Sadly some Commanders just draw disproportionate hate regardless of what else is on the table. My old The Ur-Dragon deck never made any head way because everyone would just target me regardless of how good or bad of a position I was in. I ended up pulling the whole deck apart and made a Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund deck that is WAAAYYYY scarier and incredibly more effective, in no small part because everyone no longer smashes my face in from turn 1 on.

TypicalTimmy on 5C Dragon Help - Looking ...

Looking for cards that can help me bring out Dragons for free. So any card that does this sort of thing, really.

I know a small list already, but I was wondering what else there is so I can try to narrow and hone in on the best cards.

Here's what I already know of that do this sort of thing, in one way or another. In no particular order, because I'm lazy.

I'm trying to stay away from graveyard tricks, so please keep those suggestions to a minimum. Thank you.

Cards I know of Show

As I said, I'm trying to stay away from Graveyard tricks but if it is cheap enough and easy to pull off, I guess it works. I'm looking to constantly grow my boardstate every turn, not try and rebuild it from scratch.

Yes I know Dragon Broodmother and Utvara Hellkite will grow the boardstate as well. I plan on including them. I just wanted to know what else I might be missing :)

Thanks! :D

Yeah, Scion of the Ur-Dragon can be tough to win with because everyone knows the deck can possibly insta-kill someone with the right combination. I like The Ur-Dragon better, but I'm also not a combo player.

hideandseeknl on Atraxa counters high

1 month ago

Hallo everybody,

This is my current commander deck, it is based around putting counters on things like Champion of Lambholt and swinging in for lots of damage. In my group I play against a The Ur-Dragon deck, a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck, a Mizzix of the Izmagnus. I have had alot of problems with having to play to much into a board whipe to keep up with the pressure from the The Ur-Dragon but if I do I get blasted by the Muldrotha, the Gravetide or Mizzix of the Izmagnus. If anyone knows anything or just a general upgrade than I would be really greatfull.

Thanks in advance

I think you have a few too Belbe's Portal effects in this deck. I understand that they have their advantages (instant speed drags, reduced cost) but when you're spending 5 mana to cast them you usually have enough to cast the dragons you want to play, especially with the discount from The Ur-Dragon itself. A lot of issues this archetype has is card advantage, and portal effects can be blanks in games where you need more resources.

_Delta_ on The Song of Phyresis

I will take another look at this list again when I have more time but its looking good so far.

In case you were wondering this is my current Atraxa decklist that I have been slowly upgrading over time, it could have been finished if I didn't now have so many other edh decks still in need of cards lol. I have the following 10-12 as commanders:

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

Sliver Overlord

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Kruphix, God of Horizons

Brago, King Eternal

Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

Talrand, Sky Summoner

Edgar Markov

The Ur-Dragon

And soon to be a playable Lord Windgrace decklist once I order the commander and a few other singles from the precon (which btw was built poorly), and even a Tuvasa, the Sunlit decklist! I think 12 is my absolute max I have to say and if there's ever any other generals that get my attention then I will have to just take apart an existing deck.

Atraxa Praetor's Voice (Current Decklist)

Commander / EDH Delta-117


Maybe take a look at this one, and or my other version mentioned in the description for more ideas. In the end I don't know if i'm going to really go with a full out superfriends decklist like that one shows, as there's some things I really want to include once I can get my hands on them such as Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon among others.

Kogarashi on The Ur-Dragon

This applies to things besides The Ur-Dragon's casting discount, as well. A simple example:

Kaysa says "Green creatures you control get +1/+1"

Boartusk Liege says "Other green creatures you control get +1/+1"

This is almost the same effect, except for the word "other." Kaysa's ability will give itself +1/+1. Boartusk Liege's will not.
