Dragonshift Discussion

I’m not too familiar with this precon but I’ll try to give some advice.

There are a few cards that are a bit weak, like Expedition Diviner and Unsummon . I’m also not a big fan of Rousing Refrain , but that really depends on how long your games are lasting.

Cards you could add, Aminatou's Augury is sweet and super fun to copy. Culmination of Studies could be good here. Melek, Izzet Paragon is pretty good and can be your commander if you wanna switch it up. Solve the Equation is a good tutor that’s not too expensive.

There’s also some sub-par cards you could swap out for better versions. Gadwick, the Wizened would be better as Blue Sun's Zenith , Pull from Tomorrow , or Expansion / Explosion since they can be copied and trigger your commander.

Spectacle Mage would be better as Baral, Chief of Compliance since it can make any spell cheaper plus the other ability can come in handy.

Also I don’t think the two Storm cards are very good here since your trying to cast big spells and not multiple spells in a turn.

If you wanna make more tokens you could include Murmuring Mystic . And if you added that I would suggest one of my favorite cards, even though it’s not that good, Dragonshift .

Clone Legion is fun to copy as well.

Either way, I like the deck, good luck with it!

Thanks! Actually I have wanted to build a Dragonshift Deck before, but forgot about it lol. Zirda IS a ton of fun and currently running in 2 of my decks right now, particularly with cycling. Thanks for the list; I'm sure I'll refer to it when I'm looking for something. Off to work on a Dragonshift deck and check out some from FormOverFunction

I think there is a lot of fun to be had with Zirda, the Dawnwaker, there are a lot of cards that are affected by his ability.

Also maybe something with the processor cards from BFZ? Cryptic Cruiser and the likes.


Dismiss into Dream

Fevered Visions

Nivmagus Elemental


Evolution Vat

I hate being that kinda guy, but maybe you want to look at this list i made some time ago listing older cards with interesting or unique effects that go mostly unnoticed: List of Interesting cards some may have forgotten

MonkeySit on Transforming creatures into Dragons

8 months ago

I had this idea for a deck where I constantly cast Frogify effects on my opponents whilst casting similarly weak creatures myself. But then what I wanted to do was transform them into dragons. I am purposely limiting myself to dragons for flavour but if there aren't many more cards that can do this, then I'll have to rethink my strategy - probably just hard cast dragons to stay on theme or just other big creature token generators.

So far in my list of cards that I've found are:

Atarka Monument Dance of the Skywise Day of the Dragons Descent of the Dragons Dragonshift Dromoka Monument Kolaghan Monument Ojutai Monument Sarkhan the Mad Silumgar Monument

If there are any others people can think of, it would be HUGELY appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

enpc do you have any win con ideas? Aside from the Niv/Draw/Lab Man combo I was thinking Dragonshift could have been one but the longer it has sat there it seems better suited to a go wide strategy or 1v1. I considered infect but seemed cheap. I have thought about Riku, being able to copy pokers and spells could be useful. Regarding Niv would you say run the one or both for redundancy?. Torbran seems like a nice touch, though I feel it'd be another portion to build around with damage doublers like Gratuitous Violence . Choosing one path (deathtouch/stealstuff) is difficult. Death touch focus would mean less dedication to removal spells and cool synergy with Goblin Sharpshooter . Steal stuff route would require alot of spots devoted to it I think, like sac outlets to use the stolen goods.

GhostChieftain while that does sound tempting I think that would further complicate things and increase costs. I had debated dropping green but it's giving me Ramp, haste enablers, untap effects, and a bit of recursion I can't get from just UR.

I did but I may swap it back. I like flexibility of Dragonshift .

Since you've got a token theme going on here, would Release the Gremlins be a better fit than By Force ? also, Vandalize is a good artifact removal spell regardless.

I think Dragonshift will be amazing for turning all those wizards into flying 4/4 dragons and could potentially be a big game-winner.

Great deck! +1

Free_Iona on Izzet Valuetown - Multicolored Goodstuff

Am I right in thinking you want this to be only and going for only gold/multicoloured bordered cards? Thats cool I like that :)

Would Dragonshift fit your game plan as a bit of a finisher??

Dunno if you run enough sorceries or instants for Melek, Izzet Paragon and Mizzix of the Izmagnus respectably. But they would both be on flavour as Izzet Cards. Also Cloven Casting will be fun also :)
