I've always had a passion for two colossal unstoppable forces clashing.

Just the climax of disaster. The exact second that all hell is unleashed.

Hiya folks, just gunna drop this here for awhile... As much as I don't need new projects I've me up with another idea while being bored to death at work. That idea though needs your ideas, examples, and input. If you haven't guessed from the title...

Redless Dragons.

That leave the 4 other colors to work with. Commander options are in short supply for these colors being:

I guess we have to ask what do we lose with red, and it's a lot. Fire breathing, most tribal bluffs, cost reduction, and dragon tokens. Could be replaced sort of, but that leans heavy on green for ramp which is the least shiny of the dragon colors I think. So much so that I am on the fence about dropping to 3 colors.

Esper dragons offer control as most esper decks do, but can it go fast enough like a typical dragon deck or will it stall for the long game? Or keep green and drop another color? White seems like the next best choice except I like Taigam, Ojutai Master and Scalelord Reckoner alot for this. Sans black would lose alot of removal options like both Silumgars, Crux of Fate, and Deathbringer Reagent. Blue too also loses the Silumgars, Taigam and control options like counterspells.

So now that my thoughts are out of the way, what are yours? Have any of you done this before and care to share examples/ideas?

So basically let's say that my opponent has an Void Winnower on the field, and it just so happens that the majority of my deck has low cost even spells. We're talking 2 drops and 4 drops. My Commander also is an even-cost spell, so I am effectively shut out of the game.

What makes this particular Void Winnower especially frustrating is that it is run in a Golgari deck, so recursion isn't an issue.

I can pay X (X = 3 for this example) to put a Bounty Emblem out that effectively says: "Hey, if someone EXILES Void Winnower , you get 3x Treasure tokens."

Now, when another opponent casts Path to Exile on Void Winnower , that player gets 3x Treasure tokens?

What happens if Void Winnower is dealt with beforehand, such as someone casting a Crux of Fate naming non-Dragons?

theartision, ahh okay mate!

Well, here's a list of cheap wraths for ya!

I'm not sure on cheap tutors. Maybe other users can chime in on that one :)

Hi there.

I'm working on a Sultai or Golgari version of Seasons Past myself. It was a blast to play back in Standard. A few suggestions:

Good luck!

Might be worth replacing one of your board wipes with Crux of Fate for a one sided board wipe.

You could also run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , then when you use the already mentioned Crux of Fate / Damnation / Ritual of Soot it gives you board protection.

I think Yawgmoth is a good choice against big creature/ramp decks.

Having Damnation is a good start to beating these types of decks. Dead of Winter with Snow-Covered Swamp and Crux of Fate are underrated board wipes in Commander. Yawgmoth's -1/-1 ability can kill little creatures and then make your opponents sacrifice big creatures ( Plaguecrafter , Fleshbag Marauder , Dictate of Erebos ). Ravenous Chupacabra and Shriekmaw can really ruin an opponent who ramps into a big creature to then have it killed. Since Ravenous and Shriekmaw are creatures that makes reanimation and recursion good with them. Ob Nixilis Reignited is another way to kill big creatures which is nice with proliferate from Yawgmoth.

With black you can go completely over the top of ramp decks with reanimation ( Buried Alive , Animate Dead , Victimize ). Use it on flying creatures such as Vilis, Broker of Blood and Rune-Scarred Demon . You can play cards that create tokens ( Nest of Scarabs , Dreadhorde Invasion , Pawn of Ulamog ) which can be good blockers against big creatures who don't have trample or flying.
