You might like Fallen Shinobi in place of Dragonlord Silumgar. It is not a perfect substitution, but I think your deck can easily get some unblocked creatures and ninjutsu it, and the cards you steal can be cast without paying the manacost, so avoids any problem with colored mana. Agent of Treachery is also very cool, but might have the same problem with manacosts as Dragonlord Silumgar, but has the upside of having an effect that is repeated through the turns and also you keep the permanents even if Agent of Treachery leaves the battlefield.

Also, I see the idea behind preferring Bloodchief's Thirst, but instant speed removal can be very helpful, and even though Fatal Push cannot hit creatures as big as Bloodchief's Thirst can, the instant speed makes for it definitely. You can always run something like Infernal Grasp, but for 2 mana you will always have a downside.

Also love the Dragonlords.... Dragonlord Ojutai is my favorite! *by the way did you ever notice the "decoration" around Dragonlord Silumgars neck? lol i love it!) nobody liked Tasigur, the Golden Fang anyway :p

If memory serves me right there was a gathering of the kahns at a mountaintop and there is a moment here/there which determined the future of the plane of Tarkir.... led by dragons or led by the humans.... In the future where dragons rule i believe it was Ojutai who tipped the scales in the dragons favor and the "fall of the humans"... granted it comes off as a bad thing but overall was the better future for the plane.

Dragonlord timeline Ojutai is connected to Narset Transcendent having her spark ignite by the discovery of Ojutai's role in the alternate timeline of Tarkir.

Kahns timeline Narset, Enlightened Master was leader of the Jeskai clan.... I believe there was some sort of major battle and due to timeline/magic/distraction she was felled in combat by Zurgo Helmsmasher.

and that pretty much everything i remember storywise regarding Tarkir/Ojuatai/Silumgar

multimedia on Sivitri - Custom Precon for Dominaria United

Hey, well done, nice reprint choices of Crux, Restraint, Crawlspace, Voyage, Iymrith, Astral, Propaganda, Sea Gate, but you forgot Command Tower. Tower could replace Gateway Plaza which is a terrible land. Interesting clone sub theme, not sure it's needed here, but Reflections of Littjara is a good budget tribal card for cloning.

Consider choosing only one of Collective Restraint or Koskun Falls? Both have high prices for a precon, they're similar cards and either one hasn't been reprinted before. Quicksilver Amulet needs a reprint and it goes with the idea of tutoring for Dragons then cheating mana costs.

Kindred Discovery is another option, it's an excellent tribal card and Dragons can consistently do combat damage to players. Maskwood Nexus lets Sivitri tutor for any creature and all your creatures survive Crux. Revenge of Ravens can be a good budget prison card.

Dragon's Hoard is good mana rock for Dragons. Talisman of Dominance has been reprinted in many current Dimir precons, might as well add it here too. Dark Ritual is more ramp to potentially get a quick Sivitri. Dragonlord Silumgar, Juvenile Mist Dragon, Steel Hellkite are some Dragon upgrades especially Silumgar and Hellkite can destroy nonland permanents which is helpful in Dimir.

Brainstorm, Night's Whisper and Read the Bones are nice budget draw spells. Nameless Inversion is a removal spell that Sivitri can tutor for. Hero's Downfall is now only $0.25. Swiftfoot Boots is haste and protection for Dragon you tutor for.

Thrummingbird, Flux Channeler, Tezzeret's Gambit, Sivitri is a Planeswalker, proliferate can give more chances to tutor and Crux. Sunken Hollow is missing, so is Tainted Isle and Sunken enables Isle.

Good luck with your deck.

Absolutely LOVE it... I have a Jeskai variant and some tools I use that I really like are Mission Briefing to be used as as a Snapcaster Mage value effect and Consider along side it... because im in I use Dragonlord Ojutai for my finisher but I think Iymrith, Desert Doom could be really good to maybe split with your Dragonlord Silumgar.

some juicy Sideboard tech you can consider is Sweltering Suns for a sweeper that cycles if its dead and Narset, Parter of Veils...Alpine Moon/Cleansing Wildfire I guess?

Overall i really love the bones of this build... i wish you success and happy brewing!

Blink spells, I'm not sure if you need them. Your commander triggers on ETB, but only if cast. I guess you have the AFR dragons, but I would not recommend running something just for them.

I'm still not sure what kind of value you are getting from Niv-Mizzet Reborn. By my count (before making any cuts or changes) you have 8 cards that you could find with him, as Dragonlord Silumgar goes into your hand. Yes, it is 5 counters on Ramos, but I don't think it's worth it just for that.

Crosis, the Purger seems decent. If you want to run him, no one is going to think twice, but I personally don't really like discard effects. I'll leave it up to you. Dragonlord Dromoka. Yes. I hate counterspells, and a deck that wants to drop dragons is really prone to them. Darigaaz Reincarnated is a maybe. I do like the fact that he is hard to take out, but he's just a 7/7 body, in this deck.

ok, thanks. for the help some of the cards you mentioned in my deck like Blackblade Reforged. but one card like Backdraft Hellkite it helps me get some more instance if i need any. My pet card is Ramos, Dragon Engine.

so here is how my deck works i get Tiamat out right look for 5 dragon cards the cards i look for are Ramos, Dragon Engine, Niv-Mizzet Reborn, Terror of the Peaks, Dragonlord Silumgar, and Atarka, World Render. Then put Terror of the Peaks first then atarke, then ramos then niv-mizzet. then the dragon lord. then just obliterate my opponent because they have no chance if i get all of them out and survive when tiamat comes out so yea.

and really quick what is you opinion about blink cards if you think that might help, what kind of blink cards would you prefer? speaking of cards-sorry for the long message- what is your opinion about Crosis, the Purger, Dragonlord Dromoka, and Darigaaz Reincarnated?

and what are some more instant or Sorcery spells i should put in?

Great deck!

Helm of the Ghastlord would be a great addition to beef up all your blue/black creatures. Also, Oona's Gatewarden is an easy fit in here. Some more dimir fundamentals would be Baleful Strix, Cemetery Puca, Dimir Guildmage, or Dimir Guildmage.

In terms of finisher cards, you could add: Gyruda, Doom of Depths, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Dragonlord Silumgar, Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Ghastlord of Fugue, Blizzard Specter, Dire Undercurrents,

A version of the deck will a mill wincon could also make use of Ashiok, Dream Render, Phenax, God of Deception, Lurking Informant, Nemesis of Reason, Psychic Drain, Mind Grind, Nightveil Specter, and the many more mill focused cards from across blue and black.

A deck that leans more into flash could use Slitherwisp.

Overall, I quite like and want to see it down the line!

That is my bad, I thought it was in your haves, sorry. How about Swan Song, Leyline of Anticipation, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Duskmantle Seer, and Exhume.

for: Crux of Fate, Dragonlord Silumgar, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and Dreadbore
