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.

Looks great! Personally, I'm still on the fence about the whole DnD crossover thing, but there are a few commanders from the set that look really interesting (Kalain being one of them). A few suggestions, though...

Goldspan Dragon is a great addition to treasure themed decks. Sadly, his price has skyrocketed since Kaldheim's release... Other than than, what about Bladewing the Risen as a means of recursion? Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge is a another dragon that might be worth a look. Inspiring Statuary would also let your treasures stick around with the downside of making them (essentially) tap for colorless.

Thanks Ravenrose! Dragons are just SO GOOD. I love them.

Where Ancients Tread is a really amazing enchantment. I think I have it in three of my decks! Though it would do well in here, I don't want to include it in all my stompy decks, lest it become a staple (I've got a thing against auto-includes LOL). Wild Pair on the other hand would be even better! So many dragons are 4/4, so it fits really well. I don't anticipate it remaining on the board long, but hot dang is it going in the deck.

I took out Bladewing the Risen for some lesser dragon and felt bad about it, so he may go back in. Lathliss, Dragon Queen is also a great suggestion. She'll have to watch her butt calling herself "queen" when Tiamat is on the field though.

I really do like Primevals' Glorious Rebirth - especially with Scion of the Ur-Dragon in play, trashing all my legendaries.

Thanks a lot for all the tips! Much appreciated!

Yaaaay!! Another dragon deck! I have a couple of suggestions you might like for the deck: Where Ancients Tread and Wild Pair . As for dragons, Bladewing the Risen and Lathliss, Dragon Queen could be decent. Primevals' Glorious Rebirth and Living Death are decent recursion spells.
