Welcome to the club, Amazonian_Girl!

My first thought on seeing this deck is that you have too many lands. With half your deck as lands, and no particular land-centric mechanics, this deck is going to mana flood pretty often. I would cut and replace 10-12 lands and see how that feels.

Parnesse, the Subtle Brush's second ability is going almost entirely unused. Cards like Meletis Charlatan and Double Vision can help you distribute spell copies, if you want to got that direction. Parnesse's biggest strength is her ability to direct opponents' attention away from you and towards each other, while giving them the means to fight each other. If you're mostly using your commander for protection, maybe consider a different commander, like Crosis, the Purger.

Akki Battle Squad is also pretty soft, with fewer than ten equipments, auras, and ways to grant counters.

Because of the symbol in the text box, Coastline Chimera can't be used with this commander. Color identity for Commander looks at all mana symbols in the casting cost and text box.

I see a couple of subthemes of Vampires/Blood tokens and sacrifice effects. If you enjoy those, try leaning harder into them.

Expanding on that, my biggest suggestion for this deck is to pick a theme and focus hard on it. Do you want to create and direct conflict between your opponents while keeping yourself safe? Do you want to sacrifice your own creatures and resources for bigger and better things? Do you want to go in with a crafty, manipulative Vampire army? All of these are viable strategies. If you want to, it's even possible to make a usable art/painting theme deck. Pick a central concept and look for cards that support, supplement, or reinforce that concept.

Building from a smaller collection can be tough. The trick is to find card synergies and effects that work well together, and get as much mileage as you can out of those. The Commander preconstructed decks, while fairly weak, usually have a good number of general-use "staple" cards like Sol Ring that can help any deck in the right colors.

Above all, have fun!

In terms of EDH, Sen Triplets seems good. Esper has a lot of options for turning yourself into the archenemy without even using the Triplets which also make everyone hate your deck. Other mean EDH decks I have experience are helmed by Crosis, the Purger, Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant (rated #1 for least fun among my play group), and Ephara, God of the Polis. Hope this helps. I have decks for all of these and will link them below.

kingc0rn on Karona [PREMODERN EDH]

Appreciate it! PREMODERN is simply a deck with the restriction of ONLY using cards available prior to 8th Edition (old bordered cards).

I've been on a mission to build a premodern EDH deck for a while now. I always love trying to make things I haven't seen done before. I wanted to make an Invasion Legendary Dragon deck but just couldn't choose between Rith, the Awakener (the best), Crosis, the Purger, or Darigaaz, the Igniter (best art IMO). So what went from a Saproling Tribal, to a Reanimator, to a Dragonstorm deck, is now a reanimator deck with ALL of the Invasion dragons; Karona, False God leading the charge.

I've got it to 124 but could really use some help tuning/chopping it a bit more. Any and all help would be appreciated. Spiritmonger is the only card I can see that is pretty out of place, but he's the only pet card from my childhood I can think of that isn't in a deck I own so I think he'll stay!

I fully acknowledge this deck will probably be a train wreck. Every other deck I have is pretty highly tuned, to the point I don't have any options for playing new players or underpowered decks. I'd like this to be that deck.

I've got a few decks that may be of interest. Seek and Destroy is a Dragon Tribal deck that wants to try and cheat Drgons in with the Commander's attack trigger. FUS RO DAH across the multiverse is, admittedly, more of a dice rolling deck, rather than a purely Dragon Tribal deck, but I'd still say it counts, since it wants to play a ton of dragons to hit face with. Or pull off an infinite combo and deal infinite damage to all opponents. U.S.A.F. is half Dragon Tribal, half Angel Tribal (you can ignore the Iona, Shield of Emeria. My playgroup lets me play her, but she is technically banned in commander). It still has a bunch of the tribal staples, though, and is one of my favorite decks to play. Just a bunch of Angels and Dragons, hitting people for a bunch. Armata Strigoi, Werewolves of ArmeNaya, Night of the Werewolves, In a Skyforged Dream and Killing Ground are all tribal decks, but not Dragon Tribal. They are Vampires, Werewolves, Werewolves, Angels and Knights, respectively.

As for the three you added, assuming that they are Crosis, the Purger, Dragonlord Dromoka and Darigaaz Reincarnated, you could run all 3 of them. I personally wouldn't run Darigaaz (unless he was the commander), but if you are in a removal-heavy playgroup, or you just really like that ability, go for it. I can give advice, but the choice (and deck) is ultimately yours. For cuts, I'd recommend replacing Enduring Scalelord with Dragonlord Dromoka.

As for the help, you are welcome! I hope what I say is helpful.

Blink spells, I'm not sure if you need them. Your commander triggers on ETB, but only if cast. I guess you have the AFR dragons, but I would not recommend running something just for them.

I'm still not sure what kind of value you are getting from Niv-Mizzet Reborn. By my count (before making any cuts or changes) you have 8 cards that you could find with him, as Dragonlord Silumgar goes into your hand. Yes, it is 5 counters on Ramos, but I don't think it's worth it just for that.

Crosis, the Purger seems decent. If you want to run him, no one is going to think twice, but I personally don't really like discard effects. I'll leave it up to you. Dragonlord Dromoka. Yes. I hate counterspells, and a deck that wants to drop dragons is really prone to them. Darigaaz Reincarnated is a maybe. I do like the fact that he is hard to take out, but he's just a 7/7 body, in this deck.

ok, thanks. for the help some of the cards you mentioned in my deck like Blackblade Reforged. but one card like Backdraft Hellkite it helps me get some more instance if i need any. My pet card is Ramos, Dragon Engine.

so here is how my deck works i get Tiamat out right look for 5 dragon cards the cards i look for are Ramos, Dragon Engine, Niv-Mizzet Reborn, Terror of the Peaks, Dragonlord Silumgar, and Atarka, World Render. Then put Terror of the Peaks first then atarke, then ramos then niv-mizzet. then the dragon lord. then just obliterate my opponent because they have no chance if i get all of them out and survive when tiamat comes out so yea.

and really quick what is you opinion about blink cards if you think that might help, what kind of blink cards would you prefer? speaking of cards-sorry for the long message- what is your opinion about Crosis, the Purger, Dragonlord Dromoka, and Darigaaz Reincarnated?

and what are some more instant or Sorcery spells i should put in?
