Dragonlord Silumgar Discussion

Sorry man, I wasn't trying to be condescending. Definitely came off that way though.
Yes, it becomes a 2 mana Counterspell , which is unheard of in modern. It requires a dragon in your hand, true, but you probably would have mulliganed into a threat in hand anyway.
With a deck of top end threats, you're going to want 1) to be playing on curve and 2) to be reactive the first 5-6 turns or so. You can play threats earlier, but you run the risk of passing with shields down, having your threat killed, and then spending the rest of the game on the back heel.
As a final thought, I see why you like Glorybringer. A 4/4 flying haster is good, but I would hesitate to include it here. It is best in decks playing other haste threats because it is good at massive damage, but has no staying power. I would instead recommend Silumgar, the Drifting Death or Dragonlord Silumgar , as both of those have a most lasting effect on the battlefield, which is optimal for a game of attrition.

Wild Pair is a must for this deck. Living Death and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth are good recurrsion cards. Seek the Horizon is also good ramp. Dromoka, the Eternal and Dragonlord Dromoka are some important dragons. Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Dragonlord Silumgar are also considerations. Verix Bladewing should also be considered. Where Ancients Tread is better than some of the curses. Diabolic Tutor can search up anything you need.
I hope this helps!

Gonti, Lord of Luxury would be a great asset to the etb triggers. His triggers will be of great use in this deck to steal form opponents decks. This is also not limited to cards like Hostage Taker , Dragonlord Silumgar and many more steal cards.
Rune-Scarred Demon , Shriekmaw , Farhaven Elf , God-Eternal Rhonas and Wood Elves be a nice addition. Add Conjurer's Closet and you can have more etb triggers added to the arsenal with your Deadeye Navigator .
I noticed that there is a distinct lack of enchantment triggers for Agent of Erebos and Eidolon of Blossoms . I would recommend avoiding those cards for now until you decide to have the deck become more enchantment heavy.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Pretty much looking for help and suggestions on this U/B theft deck I am currently building. It is a conversion of a Oona combo deck I had, but I am taking it apart because winning with combo leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Anyway, the deck pretty much just wants to steal my opponents stuff. If they are playing it, I want to play it!
Thank you for reading and have a good day... unless I steal it >:D
Edit: Oh, and I am on somewhat of a budget. That was a pretty silly thing to forget...

@Vlasiax: Yeah, normally when I move cards in and out, I generally go over a good explanation of why I do so. The last time I did though, was basically a huge revamp of the deck and so it wasn't just 5 or so cards. it was more like 20 or more lol and Selvala just happened to be one of them that I wanted for another deck (which was originally a Ghalta, Primal Hunger storm deck, then it become Selvala storm). I might try Glorybringer , he does seem decent and would reduce cmc a bit. Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury is one I have always loved and would love to throw back in, but its very possible that I might just do so. Have to contemplate it. My group plays seems pretty big bomb cards. We are constantly ending games by turn 5 or 6 with our standard edh decks and then turn 3 or less with our competitive decks. So generally Dragonlord Silumgar grabs something really great. Again, it all depends on playgroup, but we will see what I decide to shift around. As I said, might decide to build a Ramos deck to try and play with niv-mizzet or niv as commander.
