mudkipdude on Uh, is Chromium Lukka?

1 year ago

I don't think he is, but I'm making a deck of cards that I want to get, purely on how much I like the cards (what is a synergy is the entire premise), and I go into subtype because WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY ARTIFACTS, I DIDN'T PUT 30 ARTIFACTS IN THIS, and I look at my elder dragon list, and there's Ancient Bronze Dragon, Ancient Bronze Dragon, Dragonlord Dromoka, Dragonlord Kolaghan, and Dragonlord Ojutai, but no Chromium, the Mutable. I go to find it, and it's under... Lukka? Also, might I add that I do not have a Lukka planeswalker in the deck. is it a glitch or... deck here:

Dragonlord Kolaghan isn't overall good in commander due to its inability to use its main ability, seeing as you can only have one of each card in commander

Commander_JAR on Nicol Bolas Reanimation Deck

I was about to say!

I built a Dragonstorm deck around Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip but since took it apart for Mizzix of the Izmagnus. I miss running it in Grixis because Dragonlord Kolaghan is key to winning. Now I have to run multiple haste enablers to make Dragonstorm work in Izzet. I kept my original deck build on this site though in case I want to switch back.

Stylez121 after playing some games with Sarkhan Vol I have found that I like Dragonlord Kolaghan more as this particular list cares a lot about playing creatures

Stylez121 In my group there are a few copy effects so I can't play Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as I will lose all my dragons. I'll play some games with Sarkhan Vol but I'm not sure if I think he is better than Dragonlord Kolaghan as he gives my entire team haste, is a dragon and costs only 1 more mana

I appreciate the creativity, and there are certainly a few suggestions I could present. But first, I think it is most important to address your choice of Commander.

Niv-Mizzet Reborn is absolutely not the right Commander for this deck. And I don't mean to say that all 5-color Dragon tribal decks should have The Ur-Dragon at the helm (though, that would be a great choice, just sayin'). My reason is simple: you don't have enough color pair cards on the list for 'Ol Nivvy to be useful. Like, at all. Even as part of the 99.

Now, you could fix that by adding spells such as Terminate, Abrupt Decay, Diabolic Vision, Faeburrow Elder, Render Silent, Anguished Unmaking, etc etc etc... Not to mention that you only have 8 color pair dragons in the deck, and 5 of them are Gruul (meaning, first of all, that the most amount of dragons you could snatch with Niv would be 3 and the chances of doing so are astronomical, and secondly that if you revealed 3 or more dragons by some dumb luck they're more likely to all be Gruul than any other combination, meaning you'd only get to keep one).

The thing is, you'd have to add a helluva lot of cards to make Niv palatable for this deck, and that would mean basically overhauling the entire deck. A much easier task would be to just simply change the commander.

As for general suggestions, I think you can use some Haste enablers. Dragon Tempest, Temur Ascendancy, Dragonlord Kolaghan and Sarkhan Vol come readily to mind, but there are a ton of other choices, such as Rhythm of the Wild, Fires of Yavimaya and Samut, Tyrant Smasher.

As for your question about better low-mana dragons, understand that there really aren't many good ones below MV4. I mean, they're dragons. What do you expect? However, here's a few of the better ones that aren't an arm and a leg:

Again, if you're going for a genuinely low curve dragon deck, you're going to be disappointed. It just really can't be done.

And finally, Lathliss, Dragon Queen is quite upset that she wasn't included.

That's all I got.

I suggest removing Dragonlord Kolaghan. The card has very little use in EDH, as a singleton. Even when I played in a modern deck with him, I couldn't ever get his ability to proc for the life of me. Given, our decks weren't very good, but still. Definently still a good deck! +1
