Thanks so much for the kind words, Sentri! I'm glad you enjoy the deck! Hoarding Ogre Is definitely a good card to replace, as it's pretty inconsequential more often than not. As for what other cards to replace it depends on how you prefer to win. If you find yourself going infinite relatively often, the anthem effects that don't give trample like Crucible of Fire, Gratuitous Violence, or Atarka, World Render wind up being irrelevant, and could definitely be replaced. In general though, I would say that the relatively slow ramp of Wood Elves and the fairly situational Sarkhan the Masterless are among the weaker cards and would probably be the best to replace.

P.S. Yeah my Grist deck is definitely a bit lower power level than this one, but one of my favorites to pilot, very fun.

Hey, for a first Commander deck well done. You have some interesting card choices and nice Ur-Dragon, Gnawbone, Utvara and Sarkhan.

An area to consider improving on is repeatable draw. When you can get draw from simply having a Dragon ETB then this can help gameplay. Some budget repeatable draw sources to consider adding:

Most of these cards give you more than one effect: Temur Ascendancy is also haste enabler, Dragon's Hoard and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is also ramp, Court of Bounty can also be cheat a Dragon from your hand onto the battlefield as well as land ramp, Garruk's Uprising also gives all creatures you control trample to break through an opponent's annoying flying Spirit or Angel tokens.

You have Dragon Arch and Quicksilver Amulet which are nice effects to cheat Dragons onto the battlefield, but Court of Bounty is a step above these because it provides other effects. It can be repeatable draw with monarch or lets you play a land from your hand at your upkeep. The monarch is you draw a card at your end step, but only one player in the game can be the monarch. Any player who does combat damage to you or plays a card that makes them the monarch then becomes the monarch and you lose the monarch. You can get it back though and flying Dragons help a lot at attacking as well as blocking for an opponent not to be able to do combat damage to you.


Hellkite Charger is a combo with Old Gnawbone for infinite attacks with Dragons, but if you're playing casual then you might want to avoid a combo like this. I would include it as a win condition with Dragons. There's some budget creature/Dragon upgrades to consider:


You have the three staple budget Rainbow lands already: Tower, Orchard and Ancestry which is great, but you could improve the manabase other ways. If you have a low budget for lands then my advice is replace lands that always ETB tapped with a Tri land. A Tri land such as Jungle Shrine also always ETB tapped, but the color fixing it provides, three colors, is worth it. A land such as Swiftwater Cliffs isn't worth it instead consider Frontier Bivouac?

Archway Commons, Gateway Plaza and other lands like this are not good even though they can potentially make one of five colors. You can't play one of them unless you control an untapped land to pay 1 mana and that's a big requirement just be able to play a land.

Some budget land changes to consider:

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

NTakamura on Help with Gruul dragon tribal

Feisty Gruul Mother Atarka, World Render is a deck with dragon doing what they do best. Burn, fly and hit hard. The deck focus on using ramp in the early game so mid to late game I can bring out dragons to apply more pressure. I added more instant and Sorcery in this deck to make sure that I can have plenty of interaction and keep Gruul children(dragons) safe.

So what are everyone thoughts on the deck, I like that it has one focus but can still interact. But I feel like there is always room for improve for all deck. So what would make Fiesty Gruul Mother more of a high level casual that can hold it own?

Hey, welcome to TappedOut and Commander. Nice collection of cards for your first deck, but you've kind of just added cards to add them to make a deck not because they belong with Dragons.

Some advice is to consider getting the new Draconic Rage Commander precon? It's a preconstructed 100 card Commander deck that's focused on a Dragon theme. In the precon are several cards that would be upgrades for your deck.


More advice is consider doing some research at EDHRec Top Cards in Commander? These cards are the most played cards in Commander, called staples and most are budget. EDHRec is a great site to see examples of deck building for Commander. Several of these cards are in the Draconic Rage precon.

You can also look at the budget cards that most people playing five color Dragons use EDHRec Dragons.

The main reason that most of these cards are the most played is because they provide high synergy, effects for Dragons, Dragon tribal effects. Atarka, World Render gives itself and all other attacking Dragons you control double strike which makes each Dragon do more combat damage either to the opponent blockers or to the opponent who they attacked. Crux of Fate can destroy all nonDragon creatures leaving just you with an army of Dragons to attack your opponents unblocked and not have to worry as much about the opponents attacking you after.

Another reason most of these cards are most played is because they have more than one effect such as Dragon's Hoard. It can be ramp, making any one color, as well as repeatable draw making this one card a source of ramp and a source of draw. Temur Ascendancy is a haste enabler letting Dragons attack the same turn they ETB and it's also a repeatable draw source each time any 4 or more power creature you control ETB including creature tokens.


What EDHRec lacks is casual deck building structure advice, basic guidelines to follow to structure a casual Commander deck. Good ratios for a starting basic structure:

When you have a basic structure in place then you can of course add other cards that do other things. When playing five colors ramp is important because ramp also provides mana color fixing from getting lands that can make different colors of mana (Farseek) or from mana rocks (Arcane Signet)/mana dorks (Faeburrow Elder) that can make different colors of mana. Ramp is also just as important when your Commander, in this case Tiamat, has a high converted mana cost (CMC). Tiamat is 7 CMC which ramp can help to cast him and then that same ramp can help to cast other Dragons.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, because you have Old Gnawbone then Hellkite Charger is one of the best Dragons to add. These two Dragons combo for infinite attacks as long as you can at least do combat damage with Gnawbone. Charger could replace Flying Crane Technique because you don't really need this effect because Dragons already fly and Atarka, World Render is a better source of double strike.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, there's a new Commander product that just released called Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander and Draconic Rage is one of the four precons. It's two color Gruul with Dragon theme and in the precon are several cards that are upgrades for your deck.


If you want to be more competitive than the number one area for improvements to consider is the manabase. Due to budget I don't expect to see Shock lands and Fetch lands, but you could improve the manabase a lot even without them. On a budget rely more on basic lands, more Forests than others and some dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. The reason for this is basic lands always ETB untapped to make mana.

Play more Forests than others because green mana helps the most to get the other colors with land ramp spells. Mountains should be next because red is the most important color to cast Dragons. Those two colors are overall the two most important with Dragons.

Currently there's 26 of the 37 lands that always ETB tapped which makes the manabase really slow. In my opinion you're better off having the land ETB untapped and make less colors then ETB tapped and make more colors. On a budget a don't expect you to play all lands that always ETB untapped, but limit the amount of lands that don't to much less than 26. If you're going to play lands that always ETB tapped then choose Rainbow lands ( Path of Ancestry ) or the Tri lands ( Savage Lands ) since these lands can make one of five colors or one of three colors which on a budget is worth it ETB tapped.


Example of a budget five color manabase:

Tango lands can ETB tapped, but more basic lands help for them not to. By adding more Tango lands then Farseek could also be added as a land upgrade for Grow from the Ashes since Farseek can search for a Tango land.

If interested I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Hi, MattN7498. First of all, Sorry, I've accidentally posted the same message as below on your wall, but I didn't want to( How can I remove it?

Your Ur-Dragon deck is fantastic! I've been here for up to 3 years and created this account only to thank You. I was created Ur-Drgagon deck too, and your deck showed me, that all of my driends, who said that Ur-Dragon couldn't be enough powerfull, where wrong. Now my deck becoming a complete copy(I didn't have fetch-lands and triomes yet, but I'm working out of that ^-^). Can I ask you for some help? I saw that you tried to put on Whip of Erebos , but finalu cut it out. Should I use a Shadowspear in my Ur-Dragon? I've got some opponents with indistructible creatures like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Ormendahl, Profane Prince and some others. Furthermore, with dragons like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames , Terror of the Peaks , Atarka, World Render and some others it may help you to gain tones of life! ...But did you test it? How your Ur-Dragon may smash, for ecample, opponents with God-tribal decks? Thank you, have a good day! Best wishes, Ur-Fan.
