Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Got it. Well, in that case:

Up your amount of threats. 4 (8 if you count Trading Post) is not really enough. You need at least 6, maybe 7. Another Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, another Wurmcoil Engine. Maybe add Emrakul, the Promised End or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

Add 4 Remand, and some more removal, with at least two board wipes, and 3-4 spot removal (Spatial Contortion/Dismember). Go to 4 Thirst for Knowledge.

I think that should help.

Edit: Spellskite is really good too. Just another suggestion.

Thanks entheogeneral. Atraxa definitely can cause some great rage quits. That is a nice pull off of Jace, Architect of Thought. My favorite "combo" in this deck is when I can ult either Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Tamiyo, Field Researcher into the other. I have had a couple rage quits with those two walkers helping each other to the board.

I feel like the real issue is that your reach is limited. I understand the reasoning behind people favoring IoK over Seize but truthfully I've always found Thoughtseize to be the better card. It has more value when you draw it outside your opening hand and hits things that you actually care about; High end Eldrazi, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Scapeshift, Gurmag Angler, etc.

Fatal Push is an amazing card but you only have 2 Terminate and 3 Lilly to take care of the things it can't hit. Liliana of the Veil is also amazing but if you're facing threats who come into play bringing Eldrazi scions with them she becomes nullified quick.

I understand the reliance of Damnation but I think the underlying problem is that you need better discard and more MB removal.

If it's working for you, I'm glad. If however you're not winning as much as you could be consider swapping things around.

Another suggestion I have is how about some Ensnaring Bridge on your SB?

Haven of the Spirit Dragon is a must include with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Especially since you're running Doubling Season.

Personally I like the PWs that have a wrath effect, Chandra, Flamecaller, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are all worth a slot imo.

TheDevicer on Do you have any "pet" ...

1 week ago

I'm too Spikey to have real pet cards. Even if I'm building a "bad" edh deck to fit some edh meta, I still try to make it as good as it can be under the circumstances. I guess if I really had to name one, it would be Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. He's one of the only true control win-cons that almost all decks struggle against and acts as an amazing way to stabilize the board. When I play true control in EDH, he's always the first card I slot in.

With a commander with such a unique ability, I would consider looking for some more niche cards that work with him. I can't really see the strategy (except for the obvious swords) that you are going for, since there is a lack of description, but maybe you should consider cards like these: Painter's ServantPsychic AllergyShifting SkyCards like Swirl the Mists.Even cards that have abilities like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Obviously Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would be easy to add here, since he is colorless and you are in mono-blue.

Looks good. I would cut Setessan Tactics and 1 Nameless Inversion for 2 more MB Fatal Pushes.

I'd cut 1-2 more Nameless Inversion for 1-2 Bile Blight. Yes you're loosing the tribal keyword but you're extending your reach quite a bit.

You could swap 1 or both Vault Skirge for some Bitterblossom. Especially until you can get your hands on 2 more Dark Confidant. This will give you the tribal keyword again and low cost aggression.

I realize it's personal preference but I prefer Thoughtseize to Inquisition of Kozilek. Thoughtseize gets more value later in the game and it hits things like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Scapeshift that IoK is useless against.
