sexy_microwave on The Ur-Dragon, quest for 100%

faustodemambo Since Descendants' Path only cost it can come out pretty early. compare to Lurking Predators it will only trigger once but I personally think his small cost make it better. Like always, anything could removed but a 3 mana enchantment hurt less than a 6 mana enchantment. If left uncheck it could bring a huge value early-mid game if you have the appropriate board state. On the other side, keep in mind you will need a dragon on the board and have the chance to reveal a dragon from your library which the odd could be a little low since you have only 27 dragons for a edh creature deck. It's a gamble to make but payoff can be worth it. If you would like to try it I suggest to cut Phyrexian Arena for it since cheat creatures > draw cards in my opinion.

Hi, may I suggest Descendants' Path ? it's often a card underlooked for tribal deck. I'm in a similar situation that I want to build the most competitive Ur dragon deck. My playgroup got pretty high power cedh deck.

Hey man I like the idea of popping back the thriving lands to be able to mana fix as you go. Add in Exploration and you’ll be able to play triple the land per turn.

That Breath of Fury combo is wicked!

I already have a lot of things that give everybody haste in my deck so I took out Karthus. For a 5 drop, I like having things be a bit wild with The Prismatic Bridge rather than hoping to have a multi color dragon in my hand to use Dragon Arch .

If you like Heralds Horn and Realmwalker, then check out Descendants' Path ! Another 3 drop that cheats out dragons.

And Polymorphist's Jest is just hilarious. I used to play Curse of the Swine for multiplayer and everyone hated it XD

That makes sense to me and i think you´re right.

I´ve seen Descendants' Path in a similar deck to yours, would this fit here?

I'm still new here and still trying myself at the deck structure, forgive me if the suggestions are not well thought out.

I applaud you for sticking to the elemental/plant theme even with your sorceries and instants. Very cool.

I realize this is a budget build, but if you ever feel like splurging a lot on one card, a card like The Ozolith would be really great for keeping all your +1/+1 counters around. Something like Descendants' Path can get you a free creature on your upkeep (likely an elemental with the build you have going).

You have the potential to generate a BUNCH of mana with this deck, and I feel like it might need an outlet. Hurricane or Squall Line gives you a chance to hit your enemies really hard, if you can find a way to prevent doing the damage to yourself ( Glacial Chasm maybe?).

There's nothing wrong with swarming your enemies with giant elementals either! Cool deck +1 for strong theme.

TheMeadiator on Chorus of Wurms

Oh I definitely like Sundering Growth and Rootborn Defenses - those are great includes. I also like Second Harvest and Wurmweaver Coil . Definitely something to consider...

As much as I love Roar of the Wurm it does feel redundant with Crush of Wurms . Yes, it's cheaper, but if I'm spending all that mana on a sorcery, I may as well get 3 for 1, right?

The vanilla wurms are in there for curve and for things like Descendants' Path , and just so I don't get knocked around before I can come online. Wurms are not fast lol. Ideally, there would be better cheaper wurms, but most good wurms start at 6 cmc.

Thanks a bunch for the suggestions! I will definitely pick some of those up on my next order.
