Thunderbreak Regent Discussion

KingofDragonz on Naya Dragons

21 hours ago

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!

Since it's dragon themed, Thunderbreak Regent is probably a good idea.

Five colors without fetches is risky... Rather cut one or even two colors! Concentrate on a strategy and choose your colors accordingly. For example go with the beatdown and cut blue and white. Or go Temur and cut black and white. In any case add a play set of Birds of Paradise! And find a set of Thunderbreak Regent! Definitely worth the money in any dragon deck ;) If you want check out my take on Dragons... Also no fetches but it works pretty well most of the time! Rampaging Dragonlords

Howdy, I like what your trying to do but unfortunately Rite of Flame, Seething Song and Dragonspeaker Shaman are not modern legal, though if you don't mind and decide to make it Legacy/Vintage that's totally fine too.

About the deck itself, I'd suggest adding Thunderbreak Regent for a cheap dragon that can zap your opponent for trying to harm your dragons and Balefire Dragon to effectively wipe out any troublesome creatures your opponent might have.

Hello, I love your take, a deck playing Mana Tithe ? take my pvote sir.

On a more serious note, burn is usually based on killing your opponent as fast as possible.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is pretty much unplayable in modern, CMC is way too high.

Balefire Liege on paper sounds really good, but keep in mind that most decks use removal and since you have a really really low creature count, chances are they are going to have removal at their disposal. But I could still see it work with some effort. Thunderbreak Regent seems better overall.

while Solemn Simulacrum is great, This deck scream Aggro, so I'm not sure if it belongs here.

Since you are running soulfire granmaster, I don't see a reason to not run 4x Lightning Bolt

Path to Exile could replace oblivion ring. leaving mana open for more burn.

ALso, Skullcrack if you're running against lifegain is always nice.

hope this helps! :)
