Utvara Hellkite Discussion
4 days ago
Thanks for the suggestions.
I actually ran Verdant Force in the early days of the deck, but found it EXTREMELY slow. For 8 mana, I was very happy to swap it out for Utvara Hellkite. Unfortunately, Verdant Embrace is just as slow.
I've gone back and forth on Second Harvest, but have never actually tired it out. I'll give it a relook.
I really enjoy Goblin Bombardment (especially when paired with Goblin Sharpshooter) and it's been on Rith's maybeboard for ages now. But I think it's probably just a better fit in my Hazezon Tamar deck than in this one.

Goblins and Dragons, I like it.
Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Goblin Piledriver all came to mind first for this. The first two work wonders with Krenko, and the Piledriver could be absolutely massive if you can get his damage through. A Fling or similar card could just end the game for one or more opponents. Panharmonicon becomes a real problem for everyone if you have Tremors or Purphoros but also works with the ETB effects you have. Furnace of Rath can be another option, though dangerous since it works for your opponent's as well.
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is always good for decks like this that run a lot of mountains for added damage. I also recommend some room for Seismic Assault and Crucible of Worlds to give you a way to ditch extra land to keep smaller creatures under control or deal face damage but then play them anyway, and for the Monument that makes you discard/draw you can make sure you don't lose any land that you discard.
An upgrade for Heat Shimmer that's always fun for EDH is Blade of Selves. Gives you up to two more ETB triggers and is repeatable every time you attack.
Utvara Hellkite seems good, much better than Volcanic Dragon.
Just some thoughts for you. I've spent a lot of time on and off with a lot of the cards you've got going on in both Modern and Standard but haven't tried them in EDH before. Seems like a solid mono red build, and as it stands it's one of the least expensive Commander decks at less than $100. If you go for some of the cards I proposed that'll change quickly lol. I like how it starts as a Goblin deck and becomes a Dragon deck at the finish line. Good luck, seems like a lot of fun!

Ah Scalelord Reckoner is from the new cmdr set and Marshal's Anthem is perfect recursion! Will definitely look into those. Can't let my dragon deck become too predictable/dull (My play groups have gotten used to my 2 main dragons: NICOL BOLAS & DRAGON TYRANT). I haven't modified this deck in awhile but I picked up Utvara Hellkite recently. I hope to do a V2 of this in the future and shift the focus to different colours to keep things interesting. Thanks for the recommendations!

Since your dragons have high CMC your other spells should be much cheaper. Than i would suggest more removal:Lightning Bolt, Lightning Strike, Abradeinstead of Banefire i would play Red Sun's Zenith, cause you get it back into your library.
Some Ramp with Desperate Ritual.
Than Glorybringer can be a big threat and is like a removal. 5 Mana with 4/4 Flying, Haste and with Extert you can shoot 4 damage to target non-dragon creature, like another removal.
Then Atarka's Command is more usefull than your big Enchantments.
Than i would only Splash green only for dragons and Atarka's Command and play more creature removal.
And your Deck will be Modern not Standard.
I would play like this:

You have Nissa Revane and not Nissa's Chosen? You should have 4 of him if you have Nissa Revane. Here is another dump of cards that are cool too. Necromaster Dragon, Taigam, Ojutai Master, Catacomb Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Siege Dragon, Rith, the Awakener, Crosis, the Purger, Utvara Hellkite (He is one of my favorites!), Mana-Charged Dragon, Vampiric Dragon, Death by Dragons, Dragonmaster Outcast, Knight of New Alara, Conflux, Kilnmouth Dragon (Drop him first and then you have never ending burn spells), Two-Headed Dragon, Flameblast Dragon. I have time on the bus ride home by the way. lol

Thus far my strategy is to get a critical threshold of dragons in the deck (27 right now) so that I can keep drawing and casting dragons instead of needing to reanimate them. I have considered Unburial Ritesbefore, but just don't know what to cut for it right now (maybe Serum Visions?). My current recursion suite either gives me repeated uses (Palace Siege and Volrath's Stronghold) or gives blowouts (Patriarch's Bidding with Dragonlord Kolaghan or Scourge of Valkas in the GY). Bladewing the Risen was included mainly for nostalgia, but is actually quite useful in Pod chains. Pod away a 6-drop to get Bladewing the Risen, which reanimates a dragon. Next turn you can pod away Bladewing to get Utvara Hellkite!

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons
