Crosis, the Purger

Legendary Creature — Dragon

Flying

Whenever this deals combat damage to a player, you may pay . If you do, choose a colour. That player reveals their hand and discards all cards of that colour.

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?

I don't love Crosis, the Purger - this is just kind of a waaaay worse Nicol Bolas, which I don't think you need. Gem of Becoming - I think this is literal trash. Forbidden Alchemy - I think there are better cards that do this. I don't think you're basically ever going to want to spend 7 on the flashback.

Try: Moonveil Regent, Savage Ventmaw, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Scion of Draco, Rishkar's Expertise

Swords to Plowshares is the biggest omission in this, imo

HorseTribalLord on Dragons Galore

Okay, so budget isn't a huge deal then, and I do agree with all of multimedia's suggestions. I believe that Temur Ascendancy is a better option over Elemental Bond due to the fact that both do draw cards when creatures enter the battlefield and the difference between having 4 and 3 power doesn't affect you since most dragons are power 4 or up anyways, but ascendancy also gives creatures haste which is a big thing.

Now for upgrades

So Morophon, the Boundless is just a fantastic card especially in a five color tribal such as this, most dragon cards have only a single pip of each color in their cost, so when you combine Morophon's reduction with the Ur-dragon you can be casting dragons for a single mana... and boneyard scourge just isn't really worth all the mana in the long run. Next Balefire Dragon is just an all around great card that can keep your opponent's boards under control, and Intet, the Dreamer again isn't really worth it having to pay that three to get the card, its a neat card advantage trick, but it think there are enough ways in this deck to just straight up draw that card instead of having to pay three for it. Then the five Ikoria triomes just provide more versatility over their corresponding tri-lands just because they can not only be cycled late game, but they can also be fetched with Farseek or Skyshroud Claim which was my next suggestion specifically because of the triomes. then Dragon Broodmother is just a dragon all star giving you lots of tokens to get all of your attack triggers and to create lots of chump blockers and maybe a big guy eventually, and Crosis, the Purger again isn't really cutting it with the amount of value he gives, against a mono-colored deck it can be alright, but every color you add on to an enemy deck it gets significantly worse. and finally Thunderbreak Regent over Dragonlord's Servant because the servant is very vulnerable and doesn't provide much value in the long run while the regent is an efficient early drop dragon that helps to protect your board from targeted removal or any other targeted ability.
