Dragon's Approach

Sorcery

This deals 3 damage to each opponent. You may exile This and four cards named Dragon's Approach from your graveyard. If you do, search your library for a Dragon creature card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

A deck can have any number of cards named Dragon's Approach.

The thing is, it's harder to compare decks without hubs. Dragon's Approach, Shadowborn Apostle, Slime Against Humanity etc. are all themes on EDHREC, which encourages me to think that they should have their own hubs.

I know this is something of an open question, but which hub should a Slime Against Humanity deck go into? I know there's a Dragon's Approach hub, just wondering if there should be one for Slime Against Humanity.

Hi Gidgetimer, I have a follow-up question if you don’t mind.

In a four-player game, when I cast Dragon's Approach, Virtue of Courage puts three triggers on the stack, right? Because it says “an opponent”, so it triggers for each opponent separately if I’m not mistaken. Since it is a may-ability, for each trigger I get to choose whether I want to exile the top three cards of my library. Do I have to choose that when those triggers go on the stack, or can I choose while they resolve? I’m asking because usually I won’t be able to make use of nine cards exiled. So I’m hoping that I can exile three cards for the first trigger and then decide for each following trigger if I want to continue exiling or not. Thanks

Made_Compleat Thank you for all the feedback! Those are awesome suggestions! I did not even realize how potent Thrumming Stone could be in combination with Dragon's Approach. It also helps with the second ability of getting out more dragons. I will definitely update this deck with those suggestions. I was trying to make a off theme of dragons and wanting to try and use Daleks/Cyberman/Doctor Who theme work. But looking back I think the deck would work more compleatly (MTG pun intended) with more synergies. Thank you again for all the support and help!

Nice deck! I always love seeing more creature-based Dragon's Approach decks.

I have a similar one, Daleks & Dragons [[Davros EDH]]. One card I can't recommend strongly enough is Thrumming Stone. It turns all of your Dragon's Approaches into a high chance of an instant win. You can even tutor it up with Hoarding Broodlord for a fairly consistent wincon. Since it looks like you're trying to win with combat damage, I would also recommend Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, who can make a fairly swole army of dragons. A cut I would consider would be Dalek Squadron, as it doesn't make any impact on most boards. I also think that The Cyber-Controller, for all of its power, could be cut for a more synergistic card.

Again, I love the deck!

sergiodelrio I'm also avoiding loose and vague hubs names. They get used incorrectly or are broad to the point of all-inclusive.

Vague hub names have caused problems in the past. One hub in particular (Team America, now inactive) was being used for the wrong decks entirely. It's a Legacy tempo shell from 2008-2009, but was being treated as a synonym for any Jeskai deck, which is about as far away from the intended definition as you can get. I understand the source of the confusion, but a confusing hub is not a good hub, in my opinion. If it can't be understood at a glance, it's going to get reworked.

"Reduced variance" or "low variance" also already exists, kind of, as the "competitive" hub. The whole intent of competitive decks is to reduce variance as much as possible, so that the deck is as streamlined and consistent as possible. This is achieved through tutors, redundancy, deck manipulation, using playsets of cards, and so on. So what would be the criteria for inclusion in a "low variance" hub? I expect that a "low variance" hub would be highly subjective, used for any deck that its creator thinks is unusually consistent, whether or not it actually is.

I have also declined to put in a real tutor hub so far for similar reasons. How many tutors do you need to have to be a "tutor" deck? Is four enough, with Imperial Seal, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, and Diabolic Intent? What about Eladamri's Call, Green Sun's Zenith, Natural Order, Buried Alive, Terramorphic Expanse, Misty Rainforest, Mystical Tutor... What would be a short and solid description of a "tutor" deck? "A deck that regularly searches its library" would include landfall decks, almost every competitive EDH deck, "silver bullet" decks, and hatebear decks, all of which already have their own hub, and probably more. "A deck with seven or more card that search its owner's library" is arbitrary, as is any other number for inclusion. "A deck that regularly searches its library for specific cards that help it advance its win condition"--nah, I'm going to search for this useless card that doesn't help me at all.

Incidentally, "scry" is already available as a hub in the keyword/subtype checklist.

If a hub includes a $300 Dragon's Approach Pioneer deck, a $80 Elrond, Master of Healing casual Commander deck, and a $50,000 Vintage Beseech the Mirror deck, that hub becomes even broader than the aggro/combo/control archetypes, and as such becomes almost meaningless. I've added Dragon's Approach, Rat Colony, and Shadowborn Apostle to the short list for consideration, so they might be coming soon; I didn't see as many decks or as much diversity for Persistent Petitioners. And don't worry about a long post, as long as it's meaningful. It shows the idea has people willing to defend it and fight for it, which makes it more likely to be included one way or another.

Felipix The problem with "unlimited copies" is that there's no real mechanical similarities between the cards that have that ability. A Rat Colony deck is different from a Shadowborn Apostle deck is different from a Dragon's Approach deck, aside from one deckbuilding rule change.

I'm not trying to shut down your ideas, I promise. And I might just add a separate hub for each of those cards anyway; I'll add them to the short list for review. I'm just wary of setting too strong of a precedent.

Felipix I generally don't like adding hubs based around single cards, but I agree that there's a good amount of diversity in the Rat Colony decks here. My big concern is that the next hub suggestions will be for Dragon's Approach, Shadowborn Apostle, Persistent Petitioners, and whatever else comes down the line. Is it worth it to have separate hubs for all these cards?

By the way, there's a thread to suggest new hubs here.
