LeaPlath on Dragon hoard

1 match does not testing make.

My suggestion would be to go into RW, play a midrangey sort of game with Dragons as your midrange threats. Thunderbreak Regent, Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix, maybe Scourge of Valkas, Thundermaw Hellkite or Stormbreath Dragon. You don't need many dragons for a 5 mana 4/4 with a built in shock to bolt to become good, especially when it can kill walkers.

You then have better options for planeswalkers, such as Chandra, Torch of Defiance to help ramp into dragons, provide burn/removal and CA, and cards like Chalice of the Void, Blood Moon/Magus of the Moon to put you ahead.

If you are looking for a mono-red dragon deck, look at Legacy's Dragon Stompy. While the lists have changed recently to be less dragon based, the core of Chalice/Blood Moon/Chrome Mox/Sol Lands/Trinisphere is solid, and you can just play stuff like Rakdos Pit Dragon

Your mana curve is a bit heavy on five cost spells. I would try Dragonmaster Outcast or Slumbering Dragon. Maybe try a few Thunderbreak Regents. they are a 4/4 for 4 and damage enemies who use spells on dragons. I jealous of your cavern of souls!! good luck with your deck

How do you feel about Dragonlord Atarka?? She's great for a card that just comes in and wrecks a few weenies, or gets rid of a pesky planeswalker.

Violent Ultimatum feels grossly over costed, and could probably be replaced with a Beast Within?

Do you like cards like Ur-Golem's Eye, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Worn Powerstone? Also what are your thoughts with Grave Pact, since it doesn't seem to synergize well with the rest of the deck.

As far as other suggestions: Scourge of Kher Ridges is a great board wipe on a 6/6. Skyline Despot is great for drawing an extra card. (and I love bringing monarch into edh). Possibility Storm is an absolutely hilarious card, and ruins decks that need some sort of plan to function well. Thunderbreak Regent is good for protecting the rest of your dragons, just through fear of getting smacked. Hoarding Dragon is good for grabbing all the artifacts you're running. and the last one, Gratuitous Violence combos super well with Warstorm Surge and Crucible of Fire to just turn any one of your dragons into an etb maelstrom of death.

This deck is too slow, you need to cut some dragons, and go for the Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl combo, throw in some Thunderbreak Regents and Thundermaw Hellkites, who can single-handedly win game. Lastly, Balefire Dragon is a god of wrecking creature/token decks.

Howdy. Just want to comment first how I love how your deck is just so simple yet so destructive heck I'm surprised no one had thought it throughout before.

As for cards, against control, the first card to come to mind is Thunderbreak Regent as it punishes the opponent for trying to harm your big attackers, I do see why it doesn't fit all the way in a deck that tries to get to 8 mana by turn 4 but if you think about it, they're good lightning rods for early removal and if you can get 2 out on the same turn that's definitively going to leave a open wound on the opponent by ability alone. Another card that is more "flavorful" for your deck is Sarkhan Vol, who can really help you in times of a slow game, as he can cover himself with any of your dragons or your opponent's creature while giving them haste, he then also can deal an additional 24 damage to your opponent with his ultimate (with Dragon Tempest in play, of course) There's also Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker who is basically a Stormbreath/Avaricious Dragon in fusion)

Aside from that, if your getting bored from reading. Heroic Intervention/Blossoming Defense are good cheap protection spells and Prowling Serpopard or his bigger brother Spellbreaker Behemoth protects everything from counterspells.

Hope this helped somehow

KingofDragonz on The Storm's Fury

Howdy, I like what your going for, heck I even have my own deck based on it. Though if you want to focus on Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury I suggest adding either more dragons, support for your dragons, or mana rocks to get your dragons out faster. Here are some suggestions for each category in case you want to choose one over the other.

For Dragons, Dragonlord Kolaghan is a great one, it can attack as soon as it enters, it gives everything else haste, it has a neat ability that can work well against certain decks, and it works well with Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. There's also Sunscorch Regent, a dragon that gets bigger over time and gets you life as well.

For support, Crucible of Fire makes everything huge though it isn't really worth it unless everything you run is a Dragon as well. Dragon Tempest also is great as it gives all your dragons haste and it's second ability can stack quickly especially with Dragonmaster Outcast, though like I said it's specific though I think you could have a better chance with it then the former. There's also Sarkhan's Triumph for Dragon search though it costs a bit much and is specific.

For mana rocks, Dragonlord's Servant is a top pick as it makes all your dragons one less to cast and believe me, casting Thunderbreak Regent on turn 3 is so sweet. It is specific but it isn't terrible as even then it's another body on the field. For direct mana, there's Kolaghan Monument, it may cost 3, but it gives you an additional mana and can turn into a dragon itself which can be handy in the late game.

Hope this helps

The new card Glorybringer would be pretty good here, also as suggested already Thunderbreak Regent works very well for a deck like this. Awesome overall though, and hope it wins you some games!
