I bet it was those damn imperials. They think they can change everything.

OpenFire, Anger of the Gods kills all my mana ramp, and as stated above in the description, I like the overload on Mizzium Mortars . I can easily get to 6 mana on turn 3(also included in description), so I'm not really worried about that. I am running Flame Slash in the sideboard for turn 1 and 3 drops.At best its a turn 2 and later 4 damage which isn't terrible. At best it's a turn 3 wipe for those aggro decks.

HungryWampa Teeka's Dragon isn't legal in modern. And as I said in the description above, while Utvara Hellkite is good, it's not what I'm doing. I want my dragons to encorporate board control. And I like all my cards to have synergy.

If you start the match by scream OH DA VING do you get to start with Dragon in play?

Damn, me and my friend Kyaale were going to make a Skyrim deck but with all five colors and have Avenging Arrow in it for the arrow in the knee thing but awesome deck man! +1

RabidCatigi lol that would be awesome! You should make it. It'd be hilarious to drop that if your opponent knows what you're doing with your deck.
TehCoopeh Now I need a dragon's soul!!!
xlebec I have tried Lightning Bolt and the deck works better with Mizzium Mortars . There's a lot more things with 4 toughness than 3 toughness that I'm worried are going to kill me before I get a dragon. And if for some reason I am having trouble getting a dragon out or am playing some elf deck or something of the same nature, I can overload it. I have tried it, I was for Lightning Bolt at one point. Mizzium Mortars .
Think of the weaknesses this deck has. Swarm and decks that get a small guy fast to beat me down(slumbering dragon wouldn't help there). Mizzium Mortars takes care of bigger guys alone and destroys swarm. I also need to make sure that the skies are clear so I can get through. A lot of popular flyers are sturdy.
The only advantage Lightning Bolt has is it can hit a player, but when there's nothing on the board I don't have to burn.
Anger of the Gods would be an automatic in if it didn't kill my ramp. I can't do anything without my ramp. It's very important in this deck.

If you get mad scream, FUS, RO DAH! And flip the table over

You don't have an arcane enchanter for utopia sprawl or leyline of lifeforce!
June 26, 2014 10:32 p.m.
rhyptherock lol, I carry arcane enchanter in my pocket at all times. I keep it next to my portable forge and grinding stone.
June 26, 2014 10:42 p.m.
Make sure to give those hellkites some daedric armor and a warhammer that is fiery so you can kill the trolls for good

Scourges first activated ability kills your rampers, and the 2nd ability kills your other dragons...both things im assuming you dont want to happen since youve said so; perhaps balefire dragon better? Stormbreath dragon in sb against control as well?
June 28, 2014 3:15 p.m.
Bsaf by the time I get to use Scourge of Kher Ridges I don't have to worry about my ramp, I probably already have the game. I actually am thinking of taking hin out though. Balefire Dragon is better, that's why I'm playing more of him.
I have thought about Stormbreath Dragon in the sideboard. Just haven't done it yet. It will happen though.

kleinar it's a 3 mana combo(that I pay once) that gives me four mana so I have at least 7 mana on turn 3 to play a dragon. It's a tempo thing.
It's a combo that made Arbor Elf so big.
I have Birds of Paradise for a one drop any mana thing.
Not to seem arrogant or ignorant, but when i'm swinging for 5 and unblockable on turn 3 or 6 on turn 4 with any other creature, I don't really need exalted.

When I was first introduced into Magic, it was to casual play with theme-based decks. At the time Season 2 of Game of Thrones was starting, and being an avid Charizard fan I decided my first deck would be dragons as well!
This is what I came up with: Dance with Dragons
Check it out when you got a chance on my page!

Haha yeah, Tspyrom. I assume you saw that above either in the comments or description?
For one more mana it has a lot more of an upside in a lot quicker time frame. Besides, I really do need more red than green in this deck. I just run more forest than mountains because of the low costing mana ramps. Arbor Elf and Birds of Paradise take care of any green I need.

_Xenagos_ You're not making any sense at all. First of all you have to start with another 1 mana, mana dork and then t 2 you have to have Voyaging Satyr and Utopia Sprawl and even if you have that "combo" what do you have left on your hand. if you are on the play, then you have 4 cards in your hand( if you didn't mulligan) and even if you all that you still need to have somthing relavant in your hand and if you do. so what. in the modern meta today you are most likely to be against a twin deck and they could just counter your game winning dragon or they just combo you out turn 4. or you are against any aggro deck and you lose so hard against them
July 2, 2014 11:07 a.m.
Actually kleinar, I beat twin consistently. My dragons that control what's on the board doesn't allow them to have a creature to copy. I also play it against a lot of aggro deck and it wins...I get dragons out on turn 3. I play this deck a lot in competitive modern games and it performs well. If you don't believe so then I suggest you try it out for yourself. I put a lot of thought into this deck and being an aggro player myself, I would not have it be inferior to decks like that. Even if enough decks do bomb rush me with swarm and are too fast somehow, I have Slumbering Dragon in the sideboard for a reason.
I don't know what doesn't make sense to you but I'll play it out. Turn 1, forest and Utopia Sprawl
. Turn 2 Voyaging Satyr
just from the forest with Utopia Sprawl
and lay another land. Turn 3, depending if i layer a land this turn, I now have 6 mana. 4 mana from the one forest with utopia sprawl on it since I get to untap it with Voyaging Satyr
and tap it again. And then 2 more from the lands I played. I also run Arbor Elf
so there's a greater chance of the combo.
I have 12 dragons, I'm going to find a dragon and if not, or if they counter it, I also have Harmonize .
You are trying to suggest a mana ramp, Noble Hierarch , that provides one semi useful mana for this deck and that dies to all those spells that give -1/-1(which I already have in Arbor Elf and Birds of Paradise ). For one more mana (not saying I don't understand the importance of one mana as I do I just have multiple one drops that I can play first) I can get a 1/2 creature that gives me both green or red, and has a lot more of an upside if i manage to get Utopia Sprawl out. Who doesn't die to -1/-1 mass token kill.
To say i don't understand the competitive modern format is extremely insulting and ignorant. It is my stomping ground. And to say that simply because of a mana dork is even worse. If anything you should call me out as a Timmy player and not a Johhny player (not that either are bad). I feel as if I am pretty proven, both by experience and clearly by what others think on this site(see upvotes on pretty much all of my decks). In trying my best to not be arrogant, but I am experienced.
