Also I've noticed you did not include Warriors' Lesson and Hunter's Insight - these two provide card draw and trigger Gargos' fight so I think that they deserve a spot here

How about Elemental Bond and Colossal Majesty for card draw? Also a friend of mine suggested for me Mouth / Feed since it's aftermath mode can draw us a ton of cards here.

And since I'm not going to buy Gaea's Cradle then I might as well swap this artifact for Noxious Revival . Thanks again for help!

I understand, I've been fan of Dragons since I've bought my very first Intro pack with Ancient Hellkite in it and since that time I've tried to build powerful Dragon deck in modern but all in all it ended up being in EDH when The Ur-Dragon was spoiled. So I'll try to save as much as possible to get all the fancy spells eventually.

In your decklist I didn't see an Expedition Map - isn't it quite good tutor for Cavern of Souls or rainbow lands?

So it might be correct to swap these ramp cards out and my CMC will go down a little.

Yeah, "If you fear the dragon's fire, you are unworthy to wield it." - but that being said I probably won't be able to afford ABUR duals besides maybe Taiga and Savannah , also Mox Diamond seems to be expensive as hell too. But for the rest of the cards I'll try to get them sooner or later, recently I've bought foil Assassin's Trophy and next on the list are probably missing fetchlands or Sylvan Library .

Moxen are definitely better than Signet/Lantern, however there's also a huge price tag to them as a limitng factor for me. But I wonder if I really need Chromatic Lantern with mana base like this - it might be used to fight opposing Blood Moon but probably that's it.

Also important question - do you miss Skyshroud Claim in your build? Or are we better off with additional removal like Abrupt Decay or Fire Covenant ?

July 2, 2019 1:28 p.m.

Yeah, I've just noticed a few new artifacts in your build - can't wait to hear out the results!

For Cultivate I'd personally love to see some 2 CMC ramp+draw spells but the best we have for now is Explore or Growth Spiral so for now I'm thinking about Worldly Tutor or Mystical Tutor - which one is more important in your opinion?

So overall - it's better to look for some cheaper and maybe one-time card draw rather than using Greater Good ? Here we don't have many "death matters" cards like other decks would and I don't like the idea of "draw 4, discard 3". A friend of mine recommended me Faithless Looting but it's more or less the same thing as we don't have much payoff off of graveyards.

Good point about board presence, however, I'm not too sure if it's worth it to cut 5-6 CMC dragons with powerful effects for 3-4 CMC vanillas or with weaker effects just for the sake of casting them early. Recently I focused my time on Edgar Markov deck so it'll take me a while to come back and remember every thought path that I had while I chose these cards.

That's why I kept Glorybringer in - there are so many enablers and actual commanders that can be shot down with this that it's worth giving a shot. Especially after I recovered from Aven Mindcensor preventing me to color fix during one game.

Scourge of the Throne is a Dragon I completely forgot about but you're right, there are times when it's just vanilla and Dragonlord Kolaghan might be better option for the same CMC. I used to think about it as a staple while waiting for something better to show up.

With Thunderbreak Regent I'm not sure if I want to get him back his place but its' role as a removal bait looks promising. Maybe after few games I'll change my mind. For now I wonder if I need Cultivate here since it used to be here since I bought the precon and I think of it as a some kind of "core". However, the deck evolved since that time and now I wonder if switching it for Abrupt Decay or one of the missing tutors might be actually better. What do you think?

And another random thought: as ridiculous as it might sound, Morophon, the Boundless could be actually compared to... Mirari's Wake since both give that little +1/+1 boost and technically allow us to cast more Dragons per turn, the former by cost reduction and the latter by mana doubling. The only difference is that Morophon has a 6/6 body that counts towards Dragon Tempest / Dromoka, the Eternal effects while Wake is an enchantment which might be a little harder to remove. However, since we don't have a need to run Wake then do we need to run this ultimate changeling lord?

July 2, 2019 1:34 a.m.

Hmm... I'm not sure about that, it's technically a "Dragon" that might cut 2-3 mana but this time colored from our Dragons and make it way easier to cast The Ur-Dragon . However 6 CMC slot is pretty tight since we want not ramp/cost reduction cards but something that might win games or give huge advantage immediately, like Atarka, World Render - her double strike basically translates to Overrun effects in some decks.

Another slot is Balefire Dragon , which we completely omitted last time but check this out. It's:

  • 6 CMC
  • 6/6
  • Dragon with Flying
  • that COULD be considered a boardwipe IF he connects.
And here we are Drakuseth, Maw of Flames , which is:

  • 6 CMC
  • 7/7
  • Dragon with Flying
  • DOES NOT need to connect to spread damage across the board
I think that we were looking at the wrong spot all this time - he actually IS upgraded removal but not for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire . What do you think about this? Balefire Dragon actually is better in Kaalia of the Vast since he needs to connect, while here we could squeeze a little more off of simple attack trigger.
