Well, with the announcement of the Tribal dragon EDH precon, I'd suggest going with one of those generals over Scion for a 5 color tribal deck since most people will look at Scion and assume "Combo player"!
If you wanna stick with Scion, I'd recommend going the grave recursion route (as I can see you've already got bit of). Some things that can go well into that are Living Death, Altar of Dementia, Leyline of the Void, Wheel Effects (Wheel of Fortune, Windfall, Dark Deal) and if you do Waste Not goes well in conjunction to them.
I salute you for not wanting to go with the "generic" Scion build, and it looks like you're going a bit themey which is always a win in my book. If you want to commit to that though, take out Skittles (Skithiryx). I love the card, but you don't need him, especially since you're not running Molten combo anyway. BUT if you do want a dirty af combo, you could consider Worldgorger Dragon w/ Animate Dead and a Comet Storm. It takes a bit more work to pull off and could be an emergancy win button, but still... I think what you're striving for will be awesome with just Dragon Beatface. Good Luck!

On a side note Grim Guardian is a cool card for those who haven't looked into it before. It kills the table if it's on the board when you do Worldgorger Dragon combo for one thing. Just something to consider.

I spent days looking at way to improve Kaalia, this list is what I currently have (Kaalia, Combo Stax), and I'm curious what your take is on it. This is a stax/hatebear list, and I'm trying to work with many things, such as a steep mana curve, low land count, and less noncreatures. I generally feel the anticipation of Kaalia of the Vast in casual metas makes her more susceptible to removal, making it more difficult to cast from the command zone. It's why it's preferable to cast her once she's ready to attack with Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Hellcarver Demon.
Regarding Razaketh, Kaalia as I could see serves as two roles. When Razaketh enters the field due to Kaalia's ability, Kaalia and another creature can be sacrificed to set up infinite mana strategies, whether be Bomberman (Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond ) or Worldgorger combo (Animate Dead + Entomb ).
With 3W, you float an arbitrary amount of mana using Salvager's ability to recur Lion's Eye Diamond, then sacrifice Salvagers to Razaketh and fetch Walking Ballista.
With BB1, you Entomb and Animate Dead Worldgorger Dragon. After floating that arbitrary amount of mana from the combo, you Animate Dead a different creature from the graveyard. Sacrifice that creature to fetch Walking Ballista.
These are each cost-effective strategies, and there are many others I've added to try deviating from the tribal aggro approach like Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace .

@sonnet666: Hey! Thanks for all the recent hard work you've committed to this list along with gigibeast and narejED. I just found out now Razaketh, the Foulblooded ability enables BR and RBX decks (esp. Kaalia of the Vast) to win via Worldgorger Dragon combo. The setup demands Razaketh, two other creatures, and BB1. I want to know if this discovery will warrant a massive update to the Kaalia deck primer, and whether or not it'll bump her and other BR and RBX decks up a tier.

Hey everyone, as the title suggests, I'm looking to improve my list for The Scorpion God before Hour of Devastation is officially released. I'm relatively new to the idea of cEDH, and so I have tried making a list that I would classify as tier 2, or so. There aren't a lot of cEDH environments where I live, so I don't really have an established meta.
Background aside, the goal of my deck is to try and make infinite mana using Worldgorger Dragon with Dance of the Dead or Animate Dead. With the mana, my current mana dump win-con is Torment of Hailfire (flavor win?). I chose The Scorpion God as my commander due to his mass-draw potential, which you don't usually see in Rakdos colors. To set up the combo, I play a lot of hate effects. What could I or should I change about my list? The only thing I'd prefer to stick to no matter what is keeping Scorpy as the commander, but I'm delighted to see what else we can think of.
He's the deck list in question :
Commander / EDH*
SCORE: 1 | 136 VIEWS
But most importantly, I need a better name for this deck, so suggestions for those are also appreciated. Thanks!

In more competitive EDH decks, reanimator strategies generally use cards like Entomb, Buried Alive, and Hermit Druid to dump combo pieces into the graveyard quickly to be reanimated, as opposed to focusing on just trying to get big creatures onto the board early in the game like in other formats. Getting a huge creature out on turn 1 or 2 just doesn't have the same impact in EDH due to the large life totals and often having multiple opponents (although getting out an early Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and having it survive through to your next turn will often win the game for you).
Some of the graveyard-based combos you may see at a tournament are: Hermit Druid combo; Boonweaver Giant combo; some variations of Necrotic Ooze combo; Worldgorger Dragon combo; variations of Protean Hulk combo; Angel of Glory's Rise bomberman combo; and various infinite loops that use cards like Reveillark, Karmic Guide, and Saffi Eriksdotter.
Even if combo isn't the route you want to take with your deck, it's worth googling the chains for the combos listed above so that you have an idea regarding what other reanimator decks you come across might be up to.
