Utvara Hellkite Discussion

I may be retreading old suggestions here, so sorry about that.

Atarka, World Render lets big dragons hit twice. Balefire Dragon can (theoretically) sweep an army of anything equal to or less than X/6 if there are no flying enemies. Dragonspeaker Shaman makes big dragons cost less to cast. Hunted Dragon provides a little buffer of an army in case he's getting swamped early game, Savage Ventmaw provides a total of 6 mana every time he attacks. Utvara Hellkite creates a new 6/6 dragon every time a dragon attacks. And Zirilan of the Claw can be used to pull out big dragons or even something like Utvara (to attack and generate a free 6/6 that actually sticks around) for a turn, and only costs 3 mana. It could be used to pull out Draco for a turn, skipping the whole mana cost and upkeep and getting to swing with a 9/9 for a turn. Plus Dragon Appeasement would let him hinder an enemy by making them skip their draw-phase and only let them draw cards through sacrifice, or he could play it on himself once he gets a steady inflow of tokens from Utvara in order to draw cards when needed (including drawing extra cards if desired)

It's helpful for others if you link cards involved in your question.
The ability in question on Utvara Hellkite is a triggered ability. The rules only mention simultaneous triggers here:
"603.3b If multiple abilities have triggered since the last time a player received priority, each player, in APNAP order, puts triggered abilities he or she controls on the stack in any order he or she chooses. (See rule 101.4.) Then the game once again checks for and resolves state-based actions until none are performed, then abilities that triggered during this process go on the stack. This process repeats until no new state-based actions are performed and no abilities trigger. Then the appropriate player gets priority."
Notice that there is no mention of triggers with identical effects interfering with each other. Therefore, attacking with Scion of the Ur-Dragon (copying an Utvara Hellkite) and with Utvara Hellkite himself will generate 4 dragon tokens. Two of the trigger events will come from Scion of the Ur-Dragon seeing 2 dragons attack and the other two will come from Utvara Hellkite seeing 2 dragons attack.

Let's say you have Utvara Hellkite and one other dragon out at the start of your turn, not a very insane board state. You play Scourge of Valkas and get 3 damage. You attack with your 2 dragons and you get 2 dragons, 4 damage, then 5 damage. 1 card, 1st turn it's out it deals 12 damage.
Let's even assume Scourge of Valkas is the only dragon on the field and every other one you play gets removed. You still do 2 damage a turn off 1 card from just his ability. That's value enough that it needs to be removed, which means it's going to eat a removal spell.
Scourge of Valkas is VALUE and you should give it higher consideration.
I also suggest Descent of the Dragons which is a sick 13 mana combo with your commander.

Utvara Hellkite pairs nicely with Doubling Season as well.
