If I have tokens in play when I Day of the Dragons or Worldgorger Dragon, do they get doubled by Doubling Season when they return after DotD leaves play or is it just cards that are returned and tokens are just removed?

MonkeySit on Transforming creatures into Dragons

11 months ago

I had this idea for a deck where I constantly cast Frogify effects on my opponents whilst casting similarly weak creatures myself. But then what I wanted to do was transform them into dragons. I am purposely limiting myself to dragons for flavour but if there aren't many more cards that can do this, then I'll have to rethink my strategy - probably just hard cast dragons to stay on theme or just other big creature token generators.

So far in my list of cards that I've found are:

Atarka Monument Dance of the Skywise Day of the Dragons Descent of the Dragons Dragonshift Dromoka Monument Kolaghan Monument Ojutai Monument Sarkhan the Mad Silumgar Monument

If there are any others people can think of, it would be HUGELY appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

Flagellum on Siani and Eligeth *budget*

As mentioned above, the high cmc is a concern given the amount of ramp available. Since Siani only cares about the number of creatures with flying in order to scry I would suggest going for a swarm strategy with low cmc fliers. Add some anthem effects/Lords and then your attackers fuel themselves by netting you cards. Cheap token spells could benefit you as well. Bident of Thassa can be acquired on tcg for under a dollar :p that would reeeeeally help the swarm strat. But luckily there’s Reconnaissance Mission which does the same thing for under a buck.

Possible wincons:

Day of the Dragons: perfect wincon in swarm type deck.

Tempest Djinn just gets better and better

Budget anthems: Sprite Noble Paragon of Gathering Mists Sunken City Probably others I can’t recall

Lastly, where is Crystal Ball?? :)

This deck looks really fun! Have you considered Psychosis Crawler? Its a little mini Purphoros.

Metallurgic Summonings can also give you a little more value for your instants and sorceries. And with how high the CMC is for many of those the tokens would be big.

This deck seems like it can produce an INSANE amount of Mana. How do you spend it? I didnt see any Mana dump cards.

Have you also considered Day of the Dragons? Ya it will kill your commander but it will still trigger tons of ETB effects and use your tribal buffs.

And cards like Anger or Hammer of Purphoros will make your swarm super quick!

This is my favorite deck of the month, for sure! I love pillow fort decks :3

Here's a few suggestions. Some are kinda weird, so bear with me here...

I remember back in a time, long ago, when no flying theme deck was complete without Radiant, Archangel. Alas, those days are probably passed.

There is still plenty of color less tribal support like Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator so I don't think cost reduction will be much of an issue for the deck. Without green you will need to rely on artifacts more for ramping though.

As for powerful creatures you will have both Silumgars one Ojutais as well as the smaller dragons from their respective Tarkir broods.

Outside of that block you have good old "Skittles" Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon as well as Scalelord Reckoner and Sunscorch Regent from Tarkir. Boneyard Scourge is a nice repeatable dragon so you always have a body. Some oldie but could see come use are Catacomb Dragon.

You have the three star dragons with Keiga, Kokusho, and Yosei who all have really good death triggers.

You will also have access to blue so going with some clones like Spark Double and Clever Impersonator. Mirror Mockery will have some interesting interactions with each of the star dragons and Dragonlord Silumgar

Day of the Dragons could also be a fairly interesting 'meme' card for the deck if you are trying to have some fun.

Assuming we start with Day of the Dragons on the battlefield and Noxious Gearhulk in exile, this is what happens:

  • You activate Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1, targeting Day of the Dragons. It resolves as one single object on the stack. This means it exiles Day, triggering Day's LTB, and then immediately returns Day, triggering Day's ETB. Neither trigger goes on the stack until the loyalty ability is done resolving.

  • Both abilities will go on the stack at the same time. Since you control both abilities, you get to order them however you choose. The LTB will return your Gearhulk, while the ETB will exile all creatures you control.

  • If you choose to have the LTB resolve first, you will sacrifice any Dragons you currently have, then the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield and its ETB will trigger, going on the top of the stack. That will resolve next, then the Day's ETB, which will exile your Gearhulk and create a dragon token. You will end with a Gearhulk in exile and a dragon token on the battlefield.

  • If you choose to have the ETB resolve first, you will exile any creatures you have (if your dragon tokens are still around), then create that many dragon tokens. Then the LTB will resolve, forcing you to sacrifice your Dragons (if any), the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield, and its ETB will trigger, going on the now-empty stack. You will end with a Gearhulk on the battlefield and no dragon tokens.
