Bogardan Hellkite Discussion

ellie-is on Lathliss, Ramp Queen

Okay, so having cheaper dragons to cast does make a difference! I've cut Hunted Dragon and Bogardan Hellkite to make room for Dragon Hatchling and Dragon Egg. There are plenty of situations where having those two + a 4-mana dragon (of which there are a bunch and I want to have more in the future as I upgrade the deck) allows me to cast two dragons the turn after Lathliss comes into play, which means getting an extra token.

Pretty happy with these changes, and honestly, I think I might be close to calling the deck done and ordering the cards!!!

ellie-is on Lathliss, Ramp Queen

So, more testing and I'm really happy with how consistent the deck is thanks to the infinitude of mana rocks. I think the only question I need to answer now is if I'm happy with my dragons or if I want some cheap "dragons" (Universal Automaton, Fire-Belly Changeling, Taurean Mauler) instead. They're cheap enough that I can cast multiple of them the turn after casting Lathliss, getting twice the tokens, but they're also pretty useless in combat and don't even get haste from Dragon Tempest (not that they'd be hitting for any real damage anyway). But the 5/5 token might make up for that. Though then there's also the flavor issue. A nice compromise would be Dragon Hatchling, Dragon Egg and Sarkhan's Whelp. But they're still tiny and useless. But whe Lathliss is giving out mass buffs, they're additional bodies to get those buffs. Gah. Decisions, decisions!

I'm gonna give a try to playtesting with a few cheaper dragons and see how much of a difference it makes. Maybe take out Bogardan Hellkite and other expensive dragons to lower the mana curve a little.

(also I'd of course love to have Slumbering Dragon but $$$)

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker cEDH

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.

Topherito on Kaalia The Killer

Hey Bad_Dog, I had a question regarding a recent combo I stumbled upon with Sarcomancy and wanted to see your thoughts. Given if you are running Worldgorger Dragon in the decklist still and if you are limited on mana. I think you could use Sarcomancy with Razaketh, the Foulblooded to create an infinite tutor loop similar to the Rune-Scarred Demon and Worldgorger Dragon but in a quicker sense just using the Kuldotha Rebirth token sac loop, wherein you would only need the 3 tokens to set everything up, searching for Entomb, Dance of the Dead, and a mana outlet or Sarcomancy pending on having one of the other 3 in hand already, and flash in Bogardan Hellkite to finish things up, once the infinite loop starts.

Hey, well done for your first deck from scratch.

Some cards within the current budget to consider adding:

Could add all these cards for about $26.

Cards to consider cutting:


Worldgorger Dragon is a tricky combo to assemble because Worldgorger needs to be in your graveyard to reanimate it with Animate Dead. You don't want to ever cast it from hand or cheat it onto the battlefield with Kaalia. Sneak Attack cheating it on the battlefield is fine because then it will end up in your graveyard and you get your permanents back. You want to get Worldgorger into your graveyard and the best budget card that can do that is Buried Alive.

Currently here Angel of Despair is the easy win condition with the Worldgorger combo by destroying all your opponents permanents. But what happens if Despair is disrupted or exiled? Kaalia, Zenith Seeker can be a more complex enabler with the combo needing haste for all the creatures you put into your hand and get onto the battlefield. Bogardan Hellkite can be another easy, even truer, win condition with the combo because it does damage to each player each time it ETB which will be infinite damage with the combo.

Good luck with your deck.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Dragons on Purpose

Sweet deck, reminds me of one I used to run (+1). Have you considered Ilharg, the Raze-Boar? Even though it's not on theme (unless he part of whatever Dragonlord's Servant is serving), it's still a pretty good way to cheat out the more expensive dragons (particularly nice with Bogardan Hellkite). Hope this helps.
