The deck draft for Scion of the Ur-Dragon's next update. The current goal is to squeeze in a Flash-Hulk combo variant that allows the deck to Hermit Druid safely.

Lines of Play:

Druid-Hulk:

Hermit Druid:

This line of play is largely the same as above except it starts with Druid going off on its own after being hard-cast. There are some differences, however:

  • After activating Druid, unearth Fatestitcher as you might not have a third creature for Dread Return 's Flashback cost.
  • Reanimate Necrotic Ooze for the win.

Niv-Mizzet:

  • Have either Scion of the Ur-Dragon in play, or either Niv-Mizzet, Parun .
  • Cast either Curiosity , Keen Sense , or Ophidian Eye on the active dragon (If it's on Scion, you'll want to transform him into Niv-Mizzet).
  • Draw a card somehow (This can be done either by attacking, tapping Niv Mizzet the Firemind, or casting an instant or sorcery spell if you're using Parin).
  • Draw most of the deck and kill one to two players.

From there, it should be possible to just transition straight into a manual Necrotic Ooze combo.

Worldgorger:

This combo involves generating infinite mana using Worldgorger repeatedly blinking permanents (and especially lands or rocks) in and out of the battlefield and tapping for mana with each iteration. The exact line of play depends on the board state and what cards are in your graveyard.

With Scion in play:

Scion is not in play:

  • End the loop by reanimating a different creature.
  • If Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is in graveyard, reanimate that.
  • If not, reanimate another creature and cast Scion.
  • Transform into Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius and deal infinite damage.

Additional Notes:

The rest of the deck is largely made up of cards that are designed to either assist in getting the combos off, or interactions that disrupt opponents. Reanimation effects can work with either the Worldgorger combo (in case of Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , and Necromancy ), while Reanimate and Exhume will let you get creatures like Necrotic Ooze and Niv-Mizzet, Parun out of the graveyard after being Entomb ed or Buried Alive which are alternative ways of going off.

Survival of the Fittest is also a great card that just allows you to turn any creature into your hand into a straight Necrotic Ooze infinite mana combo for . With the infinite mana, you can cast Scion then just transform into Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius and use the infinite mana from Ooze to ping everyone.

A reminder that the draw effect from Dracogenius is optional.

Cut Cards:

These cards are ones that were removed to get the current iteration of this deck from the previous version .

Updates Add

Cut out Exhume from the deck and replaced it with Apprentice Necromancer so that there'd be room to keep Dragon Tyrant in. While it's usually an edge case where Scion needs to actually do the single-player execute, being able to play around a Birds of Paradise or just be able to kill someone with Skittles is in-hand can be a godsend.
