Description

Early game control with white/boros instants followed up by an onslaught of Dragons who control the board and leave nothing alive. Best described as a boros midrange with early control.

Early game: Against aggro control the enemy's board with Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix, Magma Jet.. Against control run Ethersworn Canonist, Guttural Response, and Blood Moon. For draw/scry we have Wall of Omens, Magma Jet, and Manamorphose.

Mid/lateGame: If your opponent is getting a little out of control as you enter mid game feel free to drop a Wrath of God or Anger of the Gods just to clear the field for the dragons arrival. Use Legion's Initiative for counter control or to gain another ETB affect on most of the creatures in the deck. Then start releasing dragons into the skies, with dragons airborne now its time to end this game.


The Dragons

Thundermaw Hellkite: 5/5 with haste that taps all your enemies fliers for 5... need I say more?

Stormbreath Dragon: Prowhite 4/4 with haste for only 5 and later he becomes a monster.

Combos


Legion's Initiative + Wall of Omens

Legion's Initiative + Kitchen Finks

Legion's Initiative + Thundermaw Hellkite

Curious what People's opinion would be if I put in some Dragonmaster Outcast . I like the card but I am wondering if it would even help my deck at all.

Mizzium Mortars is solid good spot removal and a board wipe Planar Cleansing can be better then Wrath of God deepening on the match up and Scourge of Valkas is a good dragon and works well with legions initiative

Any suggestions are welcome. I haven't been keeping with the newest sets so I may be able to put some better cards in this deck.

Because of blood moon I would try running more basic plains than basic mountains.

Have you seen the new Thunderbreak Regent he could be good in here.

Doesn't Stormbreath Dragon lose it's counter and monstruous if blinked? Maybe Thunderbreak Regent, he is cheaper, come with some kind of protection, though does not have haste.

Scourge of Valkas could be interesting too, and combo with Legion's Initiative.

Nice deck, +1

A friend of mine did this R/G Dragons, only two cards are not allowed in modern but take a look for the dragons

Is Utvara Hellkite Modern legal? Might be worth looking at for Legion's.
