Dragonlord Atarka

Legendary Creature — Elder Dragon

Flying, trample

When Dragonlord Atarka enters the battlefield, it deals 5 damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures and/or planeswalkers your opponents control.

Terror of the Peaks is awe-inspiring in Miirym. Pretty pricey though.

Other than that, Dragonlord's Servant, Atarka, World Render, Dragonlord Atarka, Tanazir Quandrix, and Rapacious Dragon seem like good fits as well.


As far as tips for dealing with Queza, what's the goal of the deck? What is it doing efficiently that you want to be able to combat?

Ok I guess our decks have slightly different attitudes then. For my deck bringing a dragon onto the field with haste is crucial which is why Sneak Attack is fantastic and I will play it over Monster Manual.

I get why you don't want to play small creatures. I've had a similar deck with Atla Palani, Nest Tender as a commander, it can be fun.

I assume you mean't Atarka, World Render and not Dragonlord Atarka?

Another idea would be Elemental Bond over Mystic Remora because it synergises better with your deck.

Have you played around with Mutavault? I have considered it for my deck and am not yet sure wether to include it or not.

Last question from my part would be if Temple of the Dragon Queen is really good enough to make the cut. Reading the card makes me doubt it but i haven't tried it out yet.

I have played around with Sneak Attack it’s a very cool card and can help but I ended up removing it for Monster Manual. I’m trying to let my dragons stick around so this is more on theme with the list. It might make it back in sometime but I’m not sure when.

Im currently not running cards like Dragonborn Looter and Scaled Nurturer as I’d rather be able to play big dragons. And they have anti synergy with cards like The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, Monster Manual and most of my etb draw triggers. In a different build I would play these cards but not in this one, they are definitely good cards tho. Im also not running any mana dorks for this reason.

I have also toyed around with Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy but her ability is sadly a cast trigger and I’m trying to cheat cards in play without casting them. Instead I ended up playing Purphoros, God of the Forge as he triggers on etb’s which has great synergy with all my token makers especially Ancient Gold Dragon as rolling a nat 20 can kill the entire table. It does less damage in some cases but it’s more consistent and it helps that its a god that can be found with The World Tree

For now I’m still playing Manaform Hellkite as the tokens she creates have haste and if my commander is out they generate extra card draw. Or she creates extra etb effects to Ping people to death with my ping bois. She is probably the next one to go tho.

As for the dragon count, I’m trying to keep it at a minimum of 30 dragons which is where I’m at right now. Which might sound a bit low but there are plenty of dragons that create dragon tokens. Right now I have Ancient Gold Dragon which creates on average 11 dragons per combat or over 20 if she has double strike. Dragon Broodmother, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Manaform Hellkite, Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and Utvara Hellkite. And ofcourse my reanimation stuff. I’m currently testing a few more dragons that might bumb me up to 31/32 but they have to be better than cards that are already in here which can be quite hard. But Dragonlord Atarka might be coming back soon as he has great synergy with the D20 dragons

The biggest problem is the 100 card limit as I also need to play some more protection spells. Heroic Intervention and Teferi's Protection as my playgroup is playing more board wipes. Counterspells can also be the way to go but I rather not play those as a personal preference

Remember a while ago where I made Zaren, Silverback Ironfist? The Ape Berserker who revolved around the Fight mechanic? So I built a deck and he was way to powerful. Every single creature spell becoems removal. Even when I nerf him, dropping it from two +1/+1 counters when the creature survives down to just a single +1/+1 until end of turn, everything just decimates the boardstate. Dropping a Hornet Queen just wrecked a game I was playing in. Because he is a custom commander, I have the deck here on Tappedout and I have the browser tab open. My current boardstate (after winning the game) looks like this:

Oh, right. I also have 5x Forest in play, 4x Mountain, Gruul Signet, Mox Amber, Mana Crypt and Arcane Signet. Das a lotta mana, man!

  • It's my Turn 9.

Game ended with me at 24 life.

Took down The Ur-Dragon, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Maelstrom Wanderer.

Poor Ur-Dragon died twice to my fights; Once to Akroma, Angel of Fury after she triggered a second time since The Ur-Dragon is both white and blue, she couldn't deal damage back. So when Akroma dealt 6, she got +1/+1 until end of turn and I had her fight again with Hunt the Hunter, since The Ur-Dragon is green. Later, Hornet Queen made short work of it, again.

I think I vastly underestimated the power of the Fight mechanic, and now I understand why we do not have a Fight Commander. T-T


Challenge Dominance

Enchantment

At the beginning of combat on your turn, you and target opponent may each reveal cards from the top of your library until you both reveal a creature card. If you do, they enter the battlefield tapped and fight each other. Put the rest of the revealed cards on the bottom of their libraries in a random order. If one creature survives, it remains on the battlefield. If both creatures survive, their owners shuffle them back into their library.

Dragonlord Atarka and Hellkite Tyrant both seem like good top-end in this deck, or at least as sideboard tech against creature based/artifact decks.

I'm guessing Dragonlord Atarka is here for flavor? Feels like it's be worse than something like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames the vast majority of the time.

Thrumming Stone would we really good. I would also cut the creatures down to just a few dragons. I did a quick playtest with my version and I liked 2 Dragon Broodmother, 1 Dragonlord Atarka, 1 Dragonlord Kolaghan, and 1 Velomachus Lorehold. Also, Lightning Bolt is just better than Lightning Strike and Shock. Awesome deck!
