This is my attempt at upgrading a Commander 2017 Draconic Domination deck into a pseudo-budget Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck based off information I've scrounged up around the internet. While there are much more powerful Scion of the Ur-Dragon decklists out there (check out my References section), they are also quite expensive [1-4]; and some budget lists I've found aren't as potent as I would like [5]. I hope this decklist can fill it's own niche as slightly more budget-friendly, yet terrifyingly potent, alternative.

Because I was upgrading the deck from a Pre-con that I purchased for ~$100, I began by trying to keep the deck under $150. I pushed the goalpost to $200, however, because I couldn't resist including some of the many excellent cards I discovered. $200 must be the limit, unfortunately, because the deck is slightly too powerful for my playgroup as is. I cannot in good conscious play this deck against my playgroup at the moment. That said, I suspect that the power level of my playgroup will eventually creep high enough to justify this deck's presence, and I enjoy being able to pull this deck out of my back pocket when justice calls for retribution (which is why I appreciate all the help!). Suggestions are very welcome!
