Description

"The Dromoka are a true community, dragons and desert survivors bound together by their common allegiance to their devoted dragonlord. The clan embodies the draconic aspect of endurance, and their symbol, fittingly, is the dragon's scale. The same scale is woven into the armor they wear to battle, granting them protection. They march in close ranks and fight with the support and cooperation of the dragons in Dromoka's brood." - Planeswalker's Guide to Dragons of Tarkir

The clan is as one

Having read the story about Dromoka and her clan, I thought it would be really cool to build an EDH deck that emulates the clan and their structure.

Dragonlord Dromoka as a commander works very well.

Flying and Lifelink

-Can't be countered

-Prevents players from playing spells on your turn.

The deck has fifteen dragons, Twelve Humans, Various cards pertaining to Dromoka herself such as Dromoka's Command and Dromoka Monument. I tried to balance as much as I could between ramp, card draw and protection. There are several removal spells, fetch type spells and creature buffs. Many of the cards were taken from the Feline Ferocity 2017 deck, as there were various good utilities in there.

I really like associating a theme to my decks and I feel that this one is working pretty well with that in mind. The dragons I chose are really the only dragons of the green and white color variety that are worth using as there really isn't much else. I tried to use mostly Human soldiers but, I was pretty limited there. I expanded into some of the other types of humans and the few that the deck has are good enough that it doesn't matter. Other creatures like Karametra, God of Harvests are a pretty good fit in the deck; as she has Indestructible, fetches forests/plains, and can swing for six.

I would really appreciate any feedback anybody might have for improving this deck. I am not against spending some money on a card if it fits well.

Abundance + Sylvan Library Every time you draw a card Abundance triggers. Sylvan Library lets you draw three cards.

Enlightened Tutor + Sensei's Divining Top Use Top to pull the card immediately off of the library into your hand.

Captain Sisay + Yavimaya Hollow When fetching for Legendary's Yavimaya Hollow is always a good first choice, as you can bring back many of your creatures for cheap.

Shelter This card is super underrated. It's a cantrip, can make a creature unblockable, prevent lethal combat damage, prevent targeted effects and auras.

Hallowed Burial This boardwipe can get around indestructible.

Bastion Protector Who doesn't love buffing their commander with +2/+2 and Indestructible.

Grand Abolisher Backup plan if Dromoka isn't on the field.

Selfless Squire Can stop large creatures dead in their tracks.

Teferi's Protection What can I say other than it can protect you from EVERYTHING, including your own boardwipes.

I really got to thinking that with this deck there is several mechanics at play here and I need to refine them slightly more for better utilization.

This was suggested by @Hexaflexagon (Thanks Again!), It is a slightly better card as the card's abilities are defined as two separate events and that can be taken advantage of.

-1 Banishing Light with +1 Oblivion Ring Same cost

Changing this one was more along the line of, it lets me pick what I want instead of what the library so happens to have towards the top.

-1 Kindred Summons with +1 Tooth and Nail Same cost

This one was a tough one for me. I went from Sigarda, Heron's Grace to Shalai, Voice of Plenty to Privileged Position to not being sure at all what I actually wanted. So I decided to go with Shalai, Voice of Plenty as she is more universal in her effect and is a creature with flying.

-1 Sigarda, Heron's Grace with +1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty Universal hexproof, Cheaper CMC

I will be focusing more on certain aspects like these in the future but, for now I think most of it is good. I am however considering doing some tweaking with the dragons/humans, not sure what yet but will gladly take any ideas on it.
