Hey, great start really well made deck :)

Cards to consider adding:

Gamble and Chaos Warp are fantastic cards because their effects are outside red's color pie. Their staples for red because they're unique and powerful. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing being either ramp, draw or removal. Tectonic Reformation and Endless Atlas can be sources of repeatable draw.

Feldon of the Third Path can be repeatable reanimation with haste of Dragons which is a helpful effect to have since Dragons are going to die. He'll make a token copy of a Dragon which doesn't trigger Lathliss, but that's fine because the tokens trigger any ETB abilities or attack triggers the creature has. Feldon is good to take some advantage of Avaricious Dragon and Dragon Mage . He's also very good with Solemn Simulacrum to create a mini land ramp and draw engine for red.

i love marath he was my commander forever for my beast tribal deck but then i decided to go with Samut, Voice of Dissent because it functions a little better for me. i see you have Where Ancients Tread why not Warstorm Surge instead or both but if you only want to run one i would go with warstorm it does not limit you on size. instead of planar cleansing how about Phyrexian Rebirth it's a good wipe and a little cheaper also there is Wrath of God which is great Decimate is good also and Nevinyrral's Disk . A good tutor would be Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith i think chord is a little better though. i see you have primal vigor but what about Parallel Lives and Doubling Season and Anointed Procession are super good but doubling season is a little costly. just some thoughts like the deck here is mine even though i don't run marath anymore Beastiality (beast tribal)

Under “ETB Abuse”, we gotsta put at least Guardian Project , Impact Tremors , Purphoros, God of the Forge , and Warstorm Surge . A really cool, crazy underrated/unknown/janky blink payoff is Isareth the Awakener . The trick is if you exile the creature, it gets exiled, but returns to the battlefield.

Thanks for suggestions. Did not put Wild Pair because it costs lots of mana and that slows the deck down. Dragon Tempest , Where Ancients Tread , Warstorm Surge , Spit Flame and Crucible of Fire seemed unnecessary to me because I won't have more than a few dragons on the battlefield. If you have more than 3 or 4 dragons out at the same time, you have practically already won. Living Death is very nice, but I put it in another deck so Primevals' Glorious Rebirth kinda replaces it. It's full of flavor if nothing else. Did not include Grow from the Ashes because i needed ramp that searches for gate lands because of my alternate win condition. Fist of Suns also seems too slow for me. You can't use it at all untill you have 5 different mana, so simple mana rocks have greater potential, I think (you can turn 5 ur dragon with mana rocks AND you can use them before that turn for other things). But thanks for ideas anyway, some cool cards i didn't know about.

This deck needs Wild Pair , Dragon Tempest and Crucible of Fire . You may also want to consider Where Ancients Tread and Warstorm Surge . Living Death is good recursion and Grow from the Ashes is pretty decent ramp. You may also wish to consider Fist of Suns . Turn 5 Ur-Dragon sounds pretty fair to me. Spit Flame is a flavour win if you want to consider it.

If you want to see my take, have a look at Dracarys: Vorthos Dragons

I hope I have been of some help!

Hi aarnok! I'm not familiar with how to reply to you on my deck thread, or if you'd be notified, so I figured I'd try sending you a comment this way to see if it works.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions! Here's some insight as to my process:

Sword of the Animist is definitely a bit of a corner case inclusion, but I've gotten plenty of value from it. If my Feldon is on the field and has no targets in graveyard, at least he can get me some lands by swinging away. Plus I've got plenty of low CMC creatures that can be equipped and ramp me some land. It's performed well in all the games I've seen it!

Liquimetal Coating is bonkers with things like Ingot Chewer and Manic Vandal . It turns Feldon activations into "destroy any permanent". I've used it to take out Gaea's Cradle , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and even planeswalkers. It's fantastic.

Chandra, Flamecaller is used exclusively for the 0 effect. Dumping my hand and drawing a new one plus one is fantastic and desirable since I'm often dumping a ton of threats for Feldon to activate or a bunch of cards I don't need. Yeah, she costs 6 but it's not a huge problem most games.

Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is absolutely a bad card. I run it for the fun of it. I'd definitely say Sarkhan is better in all cases and may consider adding him in addition, but Tibalt is just a fun pet card that I enjoy. :)

Nahiri's Wrath is a newer inclusion but I have it in the deck as an alternate way to pitch big dragons and other buff creatures to the graveyard. It's removal and a discard outlet in one. It's tested adequately thus far, but it's definitely closer to the "gonna get replaced soon" side of things at the moment.

Rowdy Crew is a sleeper hit. Discard effects on creatures is great as Feldon can recur them to keep fueling the graveyard more and more!

I used to run Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun but removed them to tone the deck back a bit as it was getting a little too powerful. I tone a lot of my decks to match my meta which is pretty casual, so sometimes I sacrifice some super-powerful cards for the betterment of the group. GoP was why I had so many basics, but you're right - I could do to add a few more nonbasics.

Goblin Engineer and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames are both on my "to buy" list. Hazoret's Monument is a great idea and I'm not sure why I'm not running it already, thanks! Endless Atlas seems cool too! Warstorm Surge is definitely powerful but it's another card that was sacrificed for playgroup purposes. The deck is already quite strong, and Surge is a bit "win-more" in my opinion. Godo, Bandit Warlord isn't a bad idea either but I only have four legal targets in the deck. Sure, grabbing Illusionist's Bracers would be slick but getting Boots or Greaves would feel underwhelming for the cost.

Worldgorger Dragon seems super interesting as some insurance to protect against board wipes (though the delayed trigger getting Stifle 'd would feel really bad), but I'm not sure how much else we could really abuse him since all my creatures would get summoning sickness again. It would untap my lands so if I had something like Hanweir Battlements in play I could give Feldon haste and use his effect again, but I just don't know that I run enough instants / flash stuff to warrant it. I'll have to consider trying him out.

Thanks a ton! I'll take a look at your list and let you know any feedback there!

aarnok on Feldon's Alzheimer's is Flaring Up Again

Hey man, always love to see another fellow Feldon fan out there. Few questions and comments though:

I am not sold on the following cards: Sword of the Animist , Liquimetal Coating and Chandra, Flamecaller Sure we want to ramp up fast, but most of the time I don't have a creature or the mana to attack with the equipped Sword of the Animist . How is that for you? For Liquimetal Coating I don't see the potential, except to combo with Hellkite Tyrant . But the impact and chances seems to small to get them. For Chandra, she seems to cost to much for me. 6 mana is a lot to spend for. Are you using that for her +1 mainly? Is that 6 damage so much of a difference? Her +0 is oke, but also to much for 6 mana. Please tell me what your experiences are.

I would remove Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and replace it for Sarkhan, Fireblood Cost a bit more, but you have the same effect with control over it. Plus you run a lot of dragons, so his other +1 seems to add up to that. Also I would drop Nahiri's Wrath . I think there are better removals that also don't cost two cards to play.

I like your inclusion of Rowdy Crew . Seems a lot of fun and not so bad when I think more about it.

You seem to run just a few non-basic land cards. Why is that? Cards like Spinerock Knoll , Buried Ruin and Arcane Lighthouse are really good and came with the preconstructed deck as well.

Last are some cards I really think you should add: Goblin Engineer Drakuseth, Maw of Flames (new cards) Hazoret's Monument Endless Atlas and Warstorm Surge . Perhaps also Godo, Bandit Warlord , to get the specific equipments really helps a lot some times.

Overall it seems like a fun deck as well. Lot of looting, but maybe that is what I am missing.
