Appreciate the well thought out response, I know that took some time. Many of your suggestions were added, the ones on the "Maybe Board" are cards I don't own currently so they would likely be upgrades if I bought.

You make valid points for Castle Locthwain and Westvale Abbey  Flip, I was just thinking late game card draw or a surprise late game flying, lifelink, indestructible, haste; removed the castle as card draw really doesn't seem to be too much of an issue. The same for benching Anticipate.

I didn't have most of the cards for the extra land ramp you suggested but added what I could and others to the Maybe Board. Can't believe I missed Command Tower lol.

The justification for keeping Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is he is a dragon (theme deck for casual friends) and if he flips it is a distraction that needs to be addressed. Commit / Memory was for mill protection and since been added to the sideboard. Shadowspear was mainly there for the (1) remove hexproof and indestructible, which could be more of a sideboard item. Ramos, Dragon Engine is there for yet another mana source as my mana base is a little on the low side. Deathbringer Regent has moved to sideboard as well, he was added for opponents who crap out tokens and board whipe was needed. Amareth, the Lustrous is in currently for card draw until I purchase something from my maybe board.

One of my main decks to compete against is a Yarok, the Desecrated that uses Agent of Treachery and another is a goblin deck.

Hey, good start. Overall you have good sense with the high budget you have.

Consider revisiting the manabase, you forgot Command Tower and also expand on ramp? 31 lands with only seven 0-3 CMC ramp sources is a risky amount when you need a lot of mana to cast Dragons and Ur-Dragon is nine mana. You really want a ramp source in your opening hand and consistently to get this you want more ramp. Not playing one basic land is an interesting choice, not a choice I would make, but if it's working for you than nice. I would include at least one of each basic.

The Pathways are not good lands for five colors since can only choose one color, they don't give you enough color fixing. With your high budget you can do better than the Pathways especially since a few of them cost more price than much better lands. Castle Locthwain and Westvale Abbey  Flip look out of place and are not powerful enough only able to make one black or one colorless mana in a five color deck. Some Rainbow lands are helpful when playing five colors or with Dragons:


More land ramp that can search for a Triome or Shock land:

Lore and Visits are two drops, similar to Farseek, but the land you search for can ETB untapped if you search for a Forest Shock land. Skyshroud can search for two Forest Triomes or Forest Shock lands. Adding Overgrown Tomb would help with these land ramp spells. Some good ramp sources for five colors to consider:


There's a few other nonDragon cards here that you don't need because they're not as good as other cards here:

Nyx Lotus is not a good ramp source here since it's a four drop that ETB tapped and then it doesn't make mana unless you control another colored permanent. Cover of Darkness is an expensive price card that's not doing much here because Dragons don't really need fear since they already have flying evasion.

Because you have Tiamat then you could cut some of the lesser Dragons such as Deathbringer Regent, Amareth, the Lustrous and Ramos, Dragon Engine. You have Old Gnawbone, if you add Hellkite Charger then you have an infinite attack combo that Tiamat can tutor for.

There's several expensive price cards in the maybeboard that would be good upgrades, but there's also some budget cards that would be upgrades for any of the above cards I mentioned to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Any reason you are running Skullwinder over Eternal Witness ? Is it for politics or mana related reasons? Maybe swap Hypothia out for Deathbringer Regent if it isn't too against theme. It seems like a lot of mana for a type based wipe. This deck is hella cool though. Deathtouch as a theme is glorious as a theme. Too bad there is no way to get mass First Strike in these colors.

Ryan got the short end of the stick with this deck last night, getting stuck without white mana till turn seven or so. Because I'd warned that this was a combo deck that could take out any player the turn after the commander comes out, Jeremy relentlessly attacked him for the first several turns, bringing his life total down to a point where the Moltensteel Dragon combo was no longer tenable. While the deck does have some mass/repeatable removal like Deathbringer Regent and Frontier Siege , neither of these work with Scion of the Ur-Dragon 's ability, probably making for a frustrating situation. I could have slowed Jeremy down if I'd drawn any black mana whatsoever, but then I probably would have just lost to Ryan's massive flyers. I think I'll add in Siege Dragon as a way for this deck to deal with small creatures on demand.

NVM, already cut Kilnmouth Dragon for Force of Vigor lol. I'll probably take out Deathbringer Regent for Hunting Grounds when I receive it.

Hey, very good budget version of Meren.

For the manabase my advice is play an equal amount of Forests and Swamps because you have one drop green mana dorks who you want to be able to consistently play turn one which a Forest is the best land option for the manabase to do that. Having double the amount of Swamps than Forests is problematic when playing one drop mana dorks.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buried Alive is excellent to tutor for any three creatures and put them into your graveyard, one of the best cards with Meren. Jarad's Orders and Final Parting are nice budget tutors with Meren. Tutoring for two cards, one goes into your hand and the other being a creature into your graveyard to reanimate/recur with Meren. Elves of Deep Shadow and Talisman of Resilience are low CMC budget ramp upgrades.

Midnight Reaper and Deathreap Ritual are more repeatable draw sources when creatures you control die. Deathreap can draw a lot of cards in multiplayer Commander since morbid can trigger on any players turn as long as any creature died during the turn. Butcher of Malakir is a upgrade for a budget big creature to reanimate with Meren since it's a repeatable source of opponents having to sac a creature they control when any creature you control dies. Demon's Disciple is an upgrade for Merciless Executioner since if an opponent doesn't have a creature, but has a Planeswalker they have to sac a Planeswalker.


Some cards to consider cutting:

The Vivid lands are not good lands and even on a budget there's better options. They aren't reliable enough to warrant ETB tapped and even if you have a way to put more counters on them with proliferate I still think they're not worth playing even over more basic lands. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is not worth the trouble of casting it or reanimating it. It's just a beater, but you want more than that with high CMC creatures in Commander.

Good luck with your deck.

The life penalty for using them is next to nonexistent really. Usually the mana fixing from them is more than enough of a reason to slot them in, and if somehow their life drain causes you to lose, there most likely was something earlier in the game you did that led to that point anyways.

IMO I'd cut something like Broodmate Dragon, Deathbringer Regent, or Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury for Hunting Grounds so really just cut whatever you think is a weak link.

As for Mystical Tutor I wouldn't really recommend it personally. Its use is very limited in what it gets you in this deck, and it can't be used to fetch something like Teferi's Protection on demand since it only tutors to the top of your library.
