19/01/2023 changes: There have been a few rounds of changes. Removed counterspells to attempt to make the deck to make more fun to play against, sold the Mox Diamond because it's become worth a mint in the last 7 years, added more draw and refocused the deck on creature ETB based interaction instead of something like Oblivion Ring. It's a good card but I don't get the value that I could get out of a Fiend Hunter. You know where I'm going with this. I've also added more mana fixing to the land base and adjusted colours for the new balance.

I think I might favor Tocasia's Welcome over Collected Company here, though Welcome would be even better if your bounce effects could happen on your opponent's turns. Ephemerate isn't quite as repeatable as Soulherder, but it is cheaper to cast, though not a creature spell itself. There's also the classic Restoration Angel, but that seems too high MV and only a one time use. Saltskitter seems interesting, but not particularly reliable. Eldrazi Displacer would be great if it didn't require 3 mana to activate. Thraben Doomsayer doesn't give the all the benefits of a bounce, but token generation is still a powerful trigger with Soul Sisters. If any of those made the cut, then I'd say you didn't need Blue spells at all, which would make your mana base faster, cheaper, and more reliable.

I think Speaker of the Heavens is a pretty perfect fit with Soul Sisters.

While on principle, I like protecting permanents, I think Patch Up might be strong enough that removing your creatures could prove more helpful to you than to your opponents - something that usually frustrates the hell out of me.

I'm not convinced shock and fetch are the best lands. While the lifeloss is less painful when counterbalanced with Soul Sisters' lifegain, it also negates some of the advantage of gaining life. Equally efficient lands that don't cost life would be better. Pathways and fast lands seem, at least to me, just as good if not better: Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Branchloft Pathway  Flip, Hengegate Pathway  Flip, Seachrome Coast, Razorverge Thicket, Botanical Sanctum

Hmmm... is there something especially crafty I'm missing with Barkchannel Pathway  Flip? As far as I can tell, you have zero use for green mana.

Hey, interesting start/WIP for five color Dragons in Standard.

You have too many cards, 63 is three cards too much consider cutting 2x Commune with Spirits and Bloodfell Caves to make 60 cards? You have too many creatures to play Commune since it can only reveal a land or enchantment not a creature. 27 lands is high, cutting some for ramp would help.

For Dragons in Standard Magda, Brazen Outlaw is great because she can create ramp for treasures or sac treasures to tutor for and put a Dragon of your choice onto the battlefield.

This is a core for ramp and to tutor for Dragons. Jaspera is the tap enabler for Magda that makes mana two ways by tapping Magda and creating a treasure. Innkeeper is the best two drop in Standard for ramp, play 4x if you're playing high CMC creatures. After Innkeeper makes it's treasure it can be tapped to make mana with Jaspera.

Showdown is powerful draw in Standard since it lets you potentially play any of the cards you exiled for two turns meaning you get a turn with all your lands and mana dorks untapped to play the exiled cards including a land from them. Ramping into Showdown turn three, four or five gives you potential to exile a Dragon, The Kami War  Flip or even another Showdown to then play those cards with your ramp on your next turn. There's no restriction of what cards you can exile on the top of your library with Showdown which is great.

Another good draw option is Unexpected Windfall which also creates treasures, but to play it you would want to add more red sources in the manabase because of it's double red mana cost.

These a good numbers for these cards.

If you choose to add Jaspera Sentinel and more Prosperous Innkeeper then you'll want more Forests because being able to cast Jaspera turn one can give you an advantage. Consistently casting Innkeeper turn two is also important which more Forests can help with. Another option rather than more Forests is add Pathways that can be green on one side: Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, Branchloft Pathway  Flip, Barkchannel Pathway  Flip. Cragcrown would be best because one side of it can be red to cast Magda, Brazen Outlaw if you don't need a green source.

If you go for the more treasure route and you have to play lands that always ETB tapped then I think Uncharted is the best option since it gives you a lot of choice in game of what color to choose that you need.


Dragon's Disciple would be better as ramp. Path to the World Tree would also be better as ramp since it only puts the land into your hand and rarely are you going to use your mana to activate it. Boseiju Reaches Skyward  Flip isn't worth four mana. The Dragon-Kami Reborn  Flip has powerful saga levels, but is really too slow to get any value from it since it has to flip, you have to have a creature among the two exiled cards and then you have to a Dragon die to be able to cast that creature. I think it's more of a sideboard card for very slow matchups.

Jaspera Sentinel with Magda, Brazen Outlaw is better than Shambling Ghast and Reclusive Taxidermist. Ghast could be a sideboard card for aggro matchups, but consistently in those matchups you would want to cast it turn one which requires a lot of Swamps. I don't think it's worth negatively affecting the other colors in the manabase for Ghast.

Good luck with your deck.

Most of my favorite art comes from the lands from certain planes. Lands usually give the best representation of what the plane is supposed to be, in my opinion. Case in point, see the Amonkhet plains that was posted above.

I have a lot of cards that I love the art for, but I'll try and narrow it down to my favorite planes and a few assorted others. Sadly, I don't have hyperlink privileges, so you'll just have to suffer with card links. lol

I also LOVE the art/designs for the five Amonkhet gods, but I feel like I've posted too many as it is. lol

Ok, here's a landbase to try out (tried not to change too much and make it work a little better life-wise while still maintaining the ability to get most any color combination by the turn you need it):

1x Reflecting Pool
1x Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth
1x Ketria Triome
1x Zagoth Triome
1x Breeding Pool
1x Stomping Ground
1x Temple Garden
3x Windswept Heath
3x Wooded Foothills
1x Misty Rainforest
2x Forest
1x Plains
1x Island

Below can be 4 of anything from fast lands like you have now to vivid lands etc. I'll just list a few + lesser options in case you like any, but the core is above. You should concentrate on having access to then / then then lastly (couple exceptions which I explained). I tried to put them in order of relevance.

Vivid Grove (there's other vivid lands, this is the green one though, and you don't want many tapped lands)
Fire-Lit Thicket (there's other of this cycle, but this is first choice because it will help with your costs)
Barkchannel Pathway  Flip
Branchloft Pathway  Flip
Temple of Mystery (lots of temple options, sometimes the scry is worth the tapped land)
Wooded Bastion
Flooded Grove
Hengegate Pathway  Flip
Cragcrown Pathway  Flip
Grove of the Burnwillows
Lair of the Hydra (manland that you could transform at low cost, or large beater for endgame)
Nimbus Maze
Simic Growth Chamber (maybe it is worth waiting a turn to reuse a land, but probably not in most cases)
River of Tears
Exotic Orchard
Pillar of the Paruns

Thanks depthcharge2, I appreciate it. Glad to hear you were able to budgetize this in a way that works for you. Misty Rainforest can be approximated easily enough; Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Hinterland Harbor or Botanical Sanctum should all be fine, or else Thornwood Falls if you’re looking for the cheapest option available.

Surgical Extraction is harder to replace; there’s the financially cheaper Extirpate, but then you’d need to splash black. I’d probably opt for a different card entirely.
