Balefire Dragon

Creature — Dragon


Whenever Balefire Dragon deals combat damage to a player, it deals that much damage to each creature that player controls.

Exoida- Yeah it is steep but I really didn't know what to with him while keeping the spirit of his yugi card. It was 10 permanents at one point but I felt that 10 over 5 turns was to easy to pull off in Golgari as token gen is a real thing in those colors. And while having an alt win con is nice I hated how useless each card was so I made the main body a beatstick at the very least, it maybe too cheap mana wise but I refuse to lower it stats it's exodia, it deserves thicc stats.

As for Blue-Eyes it actually an incomplete card I just couldn't think of anything to it proper justice. I made the Protection from small creatures a thing beacuse I didn't feel like OG highest ATK stat monster should be cump blocked but other than that I'm at a loss.

Dark Magician- Everyone is complaining on how wordy it is it really isn't than wordy at all there way more mtg and yugi cards that way more wordy this. But since no is commenting on the effect itself i guess it's good. As for why X is 3 no particular reason just a good solid number in magic. Side note I want to make Dark Magician Girl as well (we need the yugi Wifu) but I don't how to translate her effect it magic, I may have totally change her effect which ruins her any Ideas are welcome

Red-eyes- It's just a Balefire Dragon with an extra effect tacked on, and you do need 5 or more creatures or walkers to die for it's effect to proc. While technically it is repeatable each turn, it'll be hard for an opponent to continually create 5 creatures or walkers each turn after red-eyes attacks particularly since they lost 2 cards in process to keep the engine running and it has no protection by itself so simple Murder will take care of it.

Pot of Greed- Yeah its busted but I didn't want to make balanced as it balancing it I feel ruins the spirit of what pot of greed is. It banned for reason the best I'll consider is adding an additional blue mana but doing anything eles to balance it would ruin it.

Very nice deck! Well balanced. I think I would choose Chromatic Lantern over Commander's Sphere though, as your land-count for a three-color deck isn't that high and it mana-fixes all of them. Also, if you have the budget for them, I'd really recommend Balefire Dragon and Utvara Hellkite.

V1.1 - Cannibalizing other decks to flesh mine out


Ashenmoor Liege, Shattergang Brothers, Fell Shepherd, Walker of the Grove, Plague Boiler, Jar of Eyeballs, Vile Requiem, Empty the Pits, Rough / Tumble


Karametra's Acolyte - Green devotion mana dork. Xenagos, God of Revels - Generally great, explosive charges Balefire Dragon - Psuedo-board clear, can pump with Xenagos, God of Revels. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - Psuedo-rap, board control Bow of Nylea - Attacking death touch tokens are way more threatening, can't chunk block them. Devotion to green. Cultivate - Ramp is good. Ranger's Path - Ramp is still good. Into the Wilds - Semi draw, semi ramp, top of library manipulation. Xenagos, the Reveler - Ramp, tokens, whats not to like? Death's Presence - A bit win more, but re-using the stats from stacked tokens can be great.

As another user said, Dragonmaster Outcast is a must have in a dragon deck. It offers insane value and is too hard to ignore.

Some good dragons that would be awesome here include Dragonlord Dromoka,Ramos, Dragon Engine (combos off of fist of suns), and Balefire Dragon.

I would also include a Helm of the Host

I have a lot of ideas for you, but it depends how much budget you want to allow for this upgrade. I see you are contemplating Old Gnawbone, so I will assume you are ok with some suggestions being on the pricey side.

As dragons go, Scourge of the Throne would be a nice addition. I also like Balefire Dragon.

Dragonmaster Outcast is a good value for the low cost.

Every good tribal deck in red needs Shared Animosity.

Other pieces I would contemplate for ramp and draw are The Great Henge and Frontier Siege.

Hope this helps!

You do choose the order that the triggers are put onto the stack, but you can't get what you want out of that specific example. If a triggered ability has targets, they have to be chosen at the time the trigger is put onto the stack. In your example, Balefire Dragon isn't on the battlefield yet at the time you need to choose a target for Halana and Alena, Partners' ability.

Thank you for the clarify, Rhadamanthus.

I got your point, but just to be sure: Since I can stack my own triggers as I want, the following works, correct?

  1. At the Beginning of combat on my turn, I use Fight Rigging to put a +1/+1 counter on Halana and Alena, Partners. Then, if I meet the conditions, I play the hidden card - e.g. I cast Balefire Dragon and put it onto the battlefield.
  2. I use Halana and Alena, Partners to put counters on Balefire Dragon and give it haste.
  3. I attack with Balefire Dragon.
