First of all, I love your deck choices!

But I believe that Ancient Gold Dragon would be a very good card to add even if he doesn't have haste. First of all he’s a 7/10 good blocker for the turn he comes in unlike Ancient Copper Dragon (6/5) but I understand that it’s slow if you don’t have a way to give him haste. Love Copper Dragon treasures thought <3

Imagine having Dragon Tempest /Scourge of Valkas /Terror of the Peaks out when up to 20 x blue faerie dragons enters the battlefield. The amount of damage each trigger would do.

Also very good with all attack triggers or other cool dragons you have in the deck (Dromoka, the Eternal, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, Old Gnawbone, Silumgar, the Drifting Death,Utvara Hellkite, Wrathful Red Dragon, Defiant Thundermaw  Flip).

You could also potentially draw up to 20 cards if Kindred Discovery or Greater Good is on the battlefield. Puts a good number of counters on Dragon's Hoard also.

I’d love to hear your opinion on why you didn’t include him in your list with all the good synergies!

I think I would probably have to switch Balefire Dragon for Ancient Gold Dragon. Most big problematic creatures have more than 6 toughness so Balefire doesn’t get rid of them it’s only good against Tokens stacking strategies early on. I’d rather get many blockers each turn recurring and like explained you only need 1 of those 3 pieces (Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas/Terror of the Peaks) to do almost the same effect as Balefire but targeting anything.

Took a look at your list. The maybeboard is a whole other deck! I will comment over there with some ideas.

Answers to your questions:

  1. As soon as this was spoiled I saw potential. It really needs haste but a one drop Kaalia is pure value. It usually is dealt with but for a single even if I'm only able to cheat a single dragon it is worth it.

  2. Welder is an absurdly underappreciated EDH card. Great Furnace trickery is one of those simple yet elegant MTG synergies. It's in the list to recycle trinkets in the graveyard from Wheel effects.

  3. Thornbite Staff auto attaches and grants an easy untap trigger. Thousand-Year Elixir haste is crucial. Rings of Brighthearth for an additional dragon? Worth it! Plus it works with other artifacts, creatures and lands in the list.

  4. Madblind Mountain a like effect that has synergy with Sensei's Divining Top. Plus it triggers Valakut.

  5. Lotus Vale = 1 Zirilan activation. Crucible of Worlds "fixes" the tax along with salvaging lands that get Wheeled.

Dragon's Hoard really does belong in this list. I'll find a spot for it.

Hi! Fellow Zirilan of the claw enjoyer here.

I like your version, it's pretty different from mine. Love that Mudslide and Blazing Shoal :)

I was looking at your version and I have a couple questions:

1) Does Minion of the Mighty trigger often? I feel it would be pinged immediately.

2) What is Goblin Welder for exactly? What do you send to the graveyard in the best scenarios?

3) Do you get much juice out of Thornbite Staff, Rings of Brighthearth and Thousand-Year Elixir?? I've playtested them but paying for Zirilan's ability twice is rarely optimal/possible for me.

4) I'm confused by Madblind Mountain... What's the shuffle for? And is Lotus Vale also worth it? I feel like a regular snow mountain would be better for synergy effects.

5) How often can you use Crucible of Worlds without fetchlands?

That's it for the questions... But I have a recommendation too.

Try changing Mind's Eye for Dragon's Hoard. It worked for me since it's cheaper and more flexible, despite not drawing as much.

I'll check your angel and demon decks too. Super cool tribes and decks :)

Just a short list of other suggestions or swaps

  • Elemental Bond ------> Garruk's Uprising (Worth noting that it requires 4 power instead of 3. That said, your dragons will have an equally easy time triggering either one since they all have at least 4 power so I think uprising is slighlty better here. Elemental bond is actually an extremely good card that is actually the better option of the two in other decks.)
  • Nihil Spellbomb ------> Bojuka Bog (I know you're aware of this but this is just to remind you.) The best part of this swap is now you have a free deck slot which is always exciting. Note that if/when you make this swap, you'll actually delete nihil spellbomb, then add bojuka bog, then cut a black mana source because of adding bog.
  • Darksteel Ingot ------> Skyclave Relic (strictly better upgrade, although as a Child of Alara player I am a fan of both rocks since they are indestructible.)
  • Mana Geode ------> Honored Heirloom, Lantern of Revealing, Coalition Relic, Darksteel Ingot (assuming you cut it for skyclave relic), or Dragon's Hoard. I listed other mana rocks to let you see other useful options in that mana range, but quite frankly I'd go with dragon's hoard for obvious reasons. Coalition relic does double ramp you tho.)

    I think Shadow in the Warp would make a good addition to this deck, as would Dragon's Hoard, and Sarkhan's Triumph.

    why yes, Memoricide is for a specific card, but also others in case it's not in play, like Dragonlord's Servant, Thunderbreak Regent (especially), Dragon's Hoard, Dragon Tempest, and that one dragon card that has in its text "spread out you idiots!" - (name) last words.

    I have found that Pestilence Rats are a little bit more expensive but tankier Rat Colony that might or might not have more attack (or whatever you call it, I forgot).

    Well. Looking at the deck, I'd be trying to find ways to reduce your average mana-cost and make sure your higher mana-cost cards have the impact you're looking for.

    For example, comparing a card like Temur Ascendancy and Crucible of Fire. Your average dragon has 5 power. Temur Ascendancy allows your to hit with that dragon one turn earlier, while crucible makes it such that your dragon hits for 3 more damage when it does. In a damage comparison, say you play a 5 power dragon. Turn 1: 5 damage with Temur Ascendancy, 0 damage with Crucible of Fire

    Turn 2: 10 damage with Temur Ascendancy, 8 damage with Crucible of Fire

    Turn 3: 15 damage with Temur Ascendancy, 16 damage with Crucible of Fire

    It takes 3 turns of unblocked damage for your dragon to be more effective with a Crucible, than it would have been with just a haste outlet like Temur Ascendancy. And that doesn't even take into account the Ascendancy card draw. And it's a mana cheaper.

    So I'd get rid of cards like City on Fire (you don't want to use your dragons to make mana, you want to use them to attack), Crucible of Fire (your dragons are big, this is a good card if you have a bunch of dragons in play, but if you have a bunch of dragons in play, you also don't really need it to win), Fiery Emancipation (Same argument as city on fire), Omniscience (I know, FREE dragons, but ideally, you have enough mana not to worry. Omniscience is great for decks where you have a lot of card acceleration), Doubling Season (You don't actually have that many cards that make tokens, if you want that kinds of effect, Reflections of Littjara will serve you better).

    You might consider Mind_Blower3's dragon cheapener suggestions. Another really good one for your deck would be Dragon's Hoard

    Good evening~

    Dragon's Hoard is missing the Secret Lair ALT art from your database. It's the one with the parchment style and foil.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day.
