Dragon's Hoard Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hey, nice budget version of Ur-Dragon. Good job upgrading the precon by adding the Ventmaw + Assault combo.
Even if you have a higher budget to make upgrades with here's some budget cards (each $2 or less) to consider adding to replace some cards you have here:
- Temur Ascendancy > Monastery Siege
- Sarkhan's Triumph > Wardscale Dragon
- Drakuseth, Maw of Flames > Tyrant's Familiar
- Dragon's Hoard > Dreamstone Hedron
- Beast Within > Rain of Thorns
- Swords to Plowshares > Curse of Verbosity
- Dovin's Veto > Curse of Bounty
- Bala Ged Recovery Flip > Curse of Opulence
- Exotic Orchard > Orator of Ojutai
- Unclaimed Territory > Armillary Sphere
- Cinder Glade, Prairie Stream, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh, Canopy Vista > 5 Vivid lands
Understand that for most cards on this site the prices are displayed wrong and you need to do some browsing around TCGPlayer/Card Kingdom to get the best actual prices of cards. Having a creature tutor can be helpful to get Scion of the Ur-Dragon or any other Dragon. Drakuseth is a Dragon upgrade especially with the Ventmaw + Assault combo as a win condition with infinite attacks.
Hoard is a ramp upgrade since if not using it for ramp it can be a repeatable draw source. Wizards put zero instant speed removal in the precon and that's not good in Commander. You want to be able to remove a problematic card from an opponent or counter a spell that's going to wreck you.
The 5 Battle Lands could replace the 5 Vivid lands. There's lots of Tri lands here and these lands will always ETB tapped, but on a budget they're worth it for the color fixing. Vivid lands are not worth ETB tapped because you don't have a way to put more counters on them and when they run out of counters they're terrible. Battle lands have interaction with lots of basic lands and Farseek can search for one of them.
Good luck with your deck.

I would disagree 2 drop ramp with a 4 drop commander is premium especially in non-green based decks alongside just being better in general at making decks that slight bit faster. While chromatic lantern has the mana fixing ability its hardly ever relevant with a well built mana base. If you absolutely want to have 3 drop ramp in this deck I would probably add Dragon's Hoard as if you use it to cast your commander you get a counter that you can proliferate.

My bad I meant Fierce Guardianship, they're both similar in purpose and I always get their names mixed up lmfao
Since you're in 5-colour you mostly want ramp that has colours in it. Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone are the first two cards you should look at getting since they can go in any type deck, maybe Coalition Relic as well. Birds of Paradise is top tier and so is Deathrite Shaman since you own fetchlands.
I personally like Lotus Cobra in these kinds of decks especially with fetches, meaning that with Cobra on the field you get 3 mana per each fetch you play (one from playing the fetch, one from the tutored land entering, and one from tapping that land). Nature's Lore is really good and Wild Growth is fairly decent as well.
Of course this is all on top of you already having Sol Ring, Chromatic Lantern, Dragon's Hoard, and Exploration. Keep those at the very least, though I recommend keeping your Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Farseek, and maybe Skyshroud Claim and Sylvan Scrying as well. It comes down to figuring out how fast or slow your regular playgroup is and whether or not you can afford slower artifacts like Dynamo/G.Lotus, though since you're in a more casual environment they should work pretty well.
Hope that helps!

I'm not personally wild on Basalt Monolith. Whether that's something you should take out or not, I highly recommend Dragon's Hoard for any deck with this many dragons. It's a great mana rock that offers essentially free card draw. Last time I looked it was maybe $2 to pick up a copy.
You also might want to pick up Scourge of Valkas to either replace or enhance Dragon Tempest. Scourge of Valkas is on a Dragon body, which is a big plus, and as I recall it's also pretty cheap to pick up. I know that Terror of the Peaks is getting a bunch of attention since it just came out (and I like it, too), but Scourge of Valkas is (in a Dragons deck like this) almost a cheaper upgrade of the original in the right circumstances.

Alright, so after some testing I'm going to try taking out a land, a raptor and two Sarkhans to add 3x Dragon's Hoard and another Thunderbreak Regent. Most of the time I only need one additional mana from Sarkhan instead of two, and unlike Sarkhan the hoard is okay when multiples are in play, so I'll see how the deck fares with less of him. Another added benefit is that it's gonna be easier on my wallet too, lol. I'll keep testing throughout the week and see how I feel about it in the long run and against more types of decks.

MilkmanMatty: There's also Dragonlord's Servant for ramp-ish and Avaricious Dragon for draw, but your point stands. I'm definitely gonna try Dragon's Hoard, just gotta figure out what to take out for it and how many to run.
Definitely want Terror of the Peaks too, its price is just a little too much for me right now, especially in multiples. But it often deals more damage than Scourge of Valkas, triggers with the mana creatures, and has more colorless mana to have reduced by them, so it's definitely a worthy inclusion and I'm gonna add it on a future upgrade for sure.
Thanks for the help!

I would say that Dragon's Hoard is almost required. This deck suffers from poor Card Advantage as it stands; with only Sarkhan, Fireblood bringing in the worst kind of CA: discard first. Dragon's Hoard can then also be used as ramp since the only ramp-ish card in the deck currently is Marauding Raptor.

Right now I'm trying to decide whether replacing some Avaricious Dragons for Dragon's Hoard would provider a safer card draw alternative that doesn't die to removal, plus it can help with mana (that I can cast on anything unlike Sarkhan's). But I'll miss out on the 4/4 body and the tempest triggers... Tough choices!
