"I could have gone combo or control, but I decided to go for the crazy instead." Haha awesome quote!
So how are you liking EDH so far? Scion of the Ur-Dragon was on my short list of generals to build around. I did Savra, I Hardly Knew Ya first, while I trade for some more dragons... Scion is great because you can use all colors in the deck. And -mtg-card:-hellkite-overlord is AWESOME.
I see you are loving [[card:Disaster Radius...and nice work using Hex , and I love it's flavor text :)
Well, just like how I learned to play with Gifts Ungiven , the key is to set up a situation where you always get what you want.
If you need to fix, one good way to do it is to go find either 4 fetch lands or 4 shock duals (or a combination of such).
If you're looking for a specific card because of its abilities, always have in mind another one you wouldn't be sad to get in its place. Then, add Petrified Field and something else powerful enough that an opponent should be reluctant to give it to you, like maybe Thawing Glaciers or Maze of Ith . You're going to get something good, regardless.
For several months, this deck has been half taken apart because it was actually borrowing many cards from existing casual decks. I just finished the last in a long series of updates to make it completely stand-alone, and I look forward to finally playing it again.
I find that the land i use in my Horde of Notions deck works brilliantly so you may want to borrow that land base mate. ALWAYS tutor for Primeval Titan and play him that will truly fix the mana base lol especially if he has haste :-) Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet should surely be here? and surely you need some Wrath of God for early game?
That's a pretty cool combo. Unfortunately, since I only play EDH in games of 3+ players, trying to come out of the gate with that will leave me pretty well screwed. However, it could be a useful "finish the game" button for killing the last opponent still alive, so I'll put it in the Maybeboard and think about how to get it in the next time I have an opportunity to sit down and tweak the deck.

@maiden77: That base is a bit heavier on Green than what I need, but I see what you're saying. Actually, my plan is to rebuild the land base using Duals and Fetches, as I've been collecting them slowly over the past year. Another thing I'm thinking of is to add more fast artifact mana, so effects like the Piper and Amulet won't really be necessary. I agree about adding Wrath effects though. Right now the only effects I have only sort of do that (Disaster Radius , Living Death , Comet Storm , Void ), so some straight-up "everyone dies" would probably help a lot.
