Utvara Hellkite Discussion
1 day ago
Nocturnus is high risk high reward. When he's active your board is nuts. I also run all 9 fetches I can which gives me a free shuffle and a second chance to activate him frequently.
I don't own New Blood but I'm actively seeking a copy (I want to live the dream and steal an Utvara Hellkite lol). No Purph as I'm trying to keep the deck slightly underpowered but I advocate running it.
Drana's Emissary is lackluster, the others you listed I like here but Blood Baron might get replaced with Vona... I might keep both though.
Yes and yes. Good repeated removal here.
No idea which 3 honestly.
Sanctum Seeker is a card I'd like to try but I was likewise hasty in my response (and tired).
Kept combos out intentionally.

Really like your deck! :)
I have 2 dragons to suggest that both put in a lot of work in my version:
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury: The power boost he gives to each dragon for each dragon attacking is insane. The dash ability is nice when using him and his anthem effect as a finisher.
Dragon Broodmother: Similar to Scourge of Valkas, the triple red casting cost is a bit gross, but she performs really well. Her dragon tokens during every player's upkeep combos well with Dragon Tempest, Scourge of Valkas, Kindred Discovery, Utvara Hellkite, and all the Fate Reforged "whenever a dragon attacks". She also just provides chump blockers to help buffer against retaliation strikes.
In terms of what to cut...perhaps Skyline Despot? You're running enough other card draw and giving yourself the monarchy just gives people an extra reason to attack you. Is it worth the 7 drop spot? Also , maybe Karrthus as others have suggested. I'd be scared of some black deck killing him and then reanimating him stealing all your dragons! That may be more of a concern depending on meta. My meta loves graveyard shenanigans like that.
My version if you're interested: The Ur Dragon's Raging Rainbow Friends

Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and Staff of Domination because you want to be able to use the commander's ability as much as possible. Also, those are going to be huge targets once people realize what is happening. You'll want as much redundancy as possible.
Also, I think you could play some different big red stuff. Avatar of Slaughter could be hugely beneficial for you. Since you have to sacrifice him, you are the only one that gets the double strike benefit. Excruciator just to bypass any Fogs in your meta. Utvara Hellkite seems extremely beneficial because it will give you a dragon just for attacking. Plus, you already play multiple dragons. Spitebellows just seems funny here. It will always deal 6 damage to something! Furyborn Hellkite I feel like you could use if you made the deck a little different. Anything to deal one damage, to get a 12/12 flying for three mana. Hellkite Igniter seems good here, since you play an artifact subtheme. Hellkite Charger for the win. Scourge of the Throne for the same reason as Hellkite Igniter. Ryusei, the Falling Star for board wipes. Thundermaw Hellkite to tap all flying creatures so your attacks can get through. Akroma, Angel of Fury because she can just be a powerhouse. Combustible Gearhulk actually seems like a win-win for your deck. Neheb, the Eternal seems like he could benefit you with extra mana mainphase two. Conquering Manticore and Zealous Conscripts for similar reasons. Dragon Mage if you need a new hand. Combat Celebrant seems good here. Goblin Dark-Dwellers could be a possibility. Heartless Hidetsugu, dude yes!
I mainly searched for power, so I'm sure there are other creatures to look up with good ETB effects. After doing that search for you I realized that I like Feldon as a commander. Hope you don't mind if I make him based on your deck XD.

Is love, and leaves me deeply desiring more dragons with the trigger "Whenever a dragon you control attacks"

Hey, I'm back again.
As for your Dragons, I think it's best you go for 4 Utvara Hellkite since I think you're going for the token gimmick with Parallel Lives. I would also add more Dragonmaster Outcast. Another suggestion for tokens would be Dragon Broodmother, for ya know, token making speed.
So you need creature space now huh? I would remove the other dragons, that don't fit quite well with the token gimmick. This includes: Dragonlord Atarka,Glorybringer,Mirrorwing Dragon,Moonveil Dragon,Rimescale Dragon, and Skyship Stalker.
I hope I didn't distance too far from your original mechanic in this deck, and I hope it wasn't too much to digest. If I had the cash, I too would play a dope dragon deck.

Hi GoldenDiggle (nice alias!),
Thanks for the suggestions. Avenger of Zendikar was actually in this deck at some point, when it was still more of a token-generating deck. Some of the token generators of that period are still in here, but I decided to remove most of them. Mostly, because I don't like using tokens unless they're either strong by themselves OR I include cards to make them strong. That last bit was detrimental to my deck's overall strategy as I had to make room for buffs by removing strong creatures; giving Mayael less of a creature pool to work with.
Gruul Ragebeast is a great idea; it adds some more control to the deck. I'll have a look at which other creature should make room for it (it'll be a hard decision).
Giant Adephage is great too except for one minor detail; I have to damage an opponent in order to generate a copy. There are several scenario's imaginable in which this isn't much of an issue, but still I prefer cards like Godsire and Utvara Hellkite which both don't have that restriction. Still, I'll give this card some more thought.
Again, thanks a lot!
