Worldgorger Dragon Discussion

Yeah, haha. It is as competitive as can be.
I have considered Worldgorger Dragon, I know some other people who run it in their competitive lists. The combo is really good, and if I need to add in another win condition, that might be the card I will add in. I'm trying to limit the number of dead cards to almost 0.

Yep, this is a lot more competitive than mine!
Have you considered Worldgorger Dragon? It might be a bit finicky because there needs to be another creature card in a graveyard, or you need an instant speed way to stop the loop and win. But it's a pretty easy way to make infinite mana since you already run the Animate Dead enchantments. I feel like if you can support kederekt leviathan than you could support WGD. I also feel like it could be easier to pull off than dualcaster mage. Is the appeal of dualcaster mage that it doesn't need to involve your graveyard?

Hey @hotshot14 thanks for your comment.
I have had Dark Petition in my IRL list for a bit but hadn't updated this page yet.
Buried alive would definitely be strong here but I don't know what I'd cut for it. I prefer graveyard-filling options that are cheaper or instant speed because it makes it easier to avoid graveyard hate like bojuka bog.
Wanderwine and Paradox engine, along with Bloodline Necromancer and Worldgorger Dragon, are cards I just personally dislike because they make it too easy to win the game outright. Similarly, I'm not interested in building a list that storms off as fast and consistently as possible. Most people I play EDH have decent decks, but nothing that's consistently winning through disruption on or before turn 5. More often they struggle to keep up with this deck as-is.
If you play in an especially high-powered meta this list would look a lot different. As you noted, it's a "fun list" first and foremost. I try to maintain a mix of busted powerful stuff and silly-synergy type stuff. I try to win the game, but not in a way that feels super easy to me personally.

Thanks for the suggestions JuQ, Thalakos Deceiver would be a handy and dangerous tool for this deck, as well as Timestream Navigator for my sideboard (or deck). I want this deck to be nimble and adaptable, especially for points-based Commander Nights, so they go to my Acquire Board!
I've had Worldgorger Dragon backfire just as you described! I hope anyone who uses my decklist reads your comment. It's a neat trick to pull off but knowledgeable Commander players clock many of my deck's combos because the ubiquitous nature of the pre-cons. If that dragon goes into my graveyard, it's all eyes on me. Often, I only allow my infinite combos to fire twice unless it's a casual no-holds barred game or non-point tourney.

Be careful with the Worldgorger Dragon combo. If someone in your game happens to have an instant removal while you are doing it, and really knows how the dragon works, you will end up with all your permanents permanently exiled.

Hey G0ht, I'm glad you like the list! I have an irrational hate for green myself which is why I went this route over blood pod myself.
So first off Mana Drain costing 2 blue is why it doesn't work great here imo. The deck might be able to cast it T1-2 in about half the games(something like Delay would be more reliable) as it is mana wise. Force of Will is kind of the same, just not enough blue cards in the deck to be able to cast it reliably.
I considered Shimmer Myr to help break parity with a T1 Rule of Law effect. I think it's worth trying, there have been a few games where being able to drop a rock/silas on other players turns would have been really nice.
The Aetherbombs are really great in my opinion. I've been able to frustrate more than few people by repeatedly casting either one. They can counter/delay some of the most popular combos/decks in cEDH.
Herald of Anguish might be worth trying, Sun Titan is also one I keep thinking should find a spot too. There are some decks where the discard could hurt though, you definitely don't want someone discarding a Worldgorger Dragon and combining off next turn for instance. Basicly it's no Sire Of Insanity unfortunately but it might work in the right meta.
I'll check out your deck for sure, thanks for the comment!

How does this work? How do Worldgorger Dragon's triggers help you? This looks very interesting.
