Dragonspeaker Shaman Discussion

X-Factor11105 I've actually been seriously considering Kolaghan's Command lately, but I dunno if I'd remove Bedevil for it (Bedevil is just so so good). Dragonspeaker Shaman was in here for a while a long time ago, but I swapped him out for Dragonlord's Servant for the easier mana cost, then swapped the servant out for Nightscape Familiar because familiar applies to more of my cards. Cost reducers are only really worth it if you get their benefit multiple times in a turn, and I cast multiple red cards way more often than I cast multiple dragons.
Ugin, the Ineffable isn't quite as important as he used to be, but he's still good. Prior to Feed the Swarm being printed he was arguably the best targeted enchantment removal Rakdos had to offer (compared to stuff like Spine of Ish Sah and Scour from Existence). I wish he was at least one mana cheaper, but the removal+card advantage package he offers is still really nice

FWIW, Knollspine Dragon has been much easier to setup for 4+ cards than I thought it'd be. That might be the next one to try for possible ramp options!
You're right about Mutavault unfortunately. Instead I'm gonna try Malakir Rebirth Flip to see if I can more mileage out of that utility land spot. Valakut Awakening Flip and Agadeem's Awakening Flip are next on the list for testing.
FWIW I'm going to test Kolaghan's Command in favor of Bedevil to get some more flexibility in that removal spot. Same for Soul Shatter - it feels like so much value for 3 mana, I have no idea why it's a $0.25 card!
Have you ever tested Dragonspeaker Shaman? I'm wondering about it - that 2-mana cost reduction on a 3 CMC body just screams efficiency.
Also - how valuable has Ugin, the Ineffable been for you? I've been seriously considering it for the spot removal and draw but that six CMC is scaring me a bit.

Dragonspeaker Shaman seems good here Dragon Arch is only working for one of your dragons so maybe swap it out? if this is casual and you can run anything Sol Ring seems like a bomb. Also some card draw would be nice, Painful Truths might suit you well being cheap to cast

You do realize that Dragonspeaker Shaman isn't legal in modern. It is from 7th edition or earlier which is not allowed in modern.

Jator Seems good! I've always thought about throwing it in because it's easy to trigger. Guess the main thing to figure out is what do you want to prioritize looking for to either gain some more card advantage or alpha strike someone. I'll definitely see if I can squeeze it into the list!
Granum Original duals are obviously the best pick. However, I don't own any OG Duals nor do I like proxying stuff like that. If you own OG Duals, go for it but not required.
EmperorPenguin I'll go fast. Lurking Predators 32 creatures in the deck, which is low for this effect, and you're forced to cast them otherwise why would you playing this card. Opens yourself up to field wipes and getting rid of a lot of your threats in the deck. Dragonspeaker Shaman Non land ramp based card that's on a small body that easy to remove that's really only good on Turn 3. Sunbird's Invocation Win more enchantment that does nothing casting it on Turn 7, which isn't guaranteed to make it back to you when you play it, where you can cast potentially two dragons instead. Descendants' Path Same thing as Predators. Low hit rate that does nothing when you play it. Granted it's only 3 mana but list is already tight so the hit rate just doesn't make it worth it. O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami Great political card in that it deters people from swinging out of fear of blowing up their permanents. Flying and trample also really great. Dragonmaster Outcast Rather would just pay mana for a Dragon that has equivalent stats for the 5/5 that comes in rather than risk this on a small body and can actually be aggressive. Taigam, Ojutai Master Counter spells ain't a big deal and paying 4 mana to have only a Cavern of Souls that pretty much has no other lines of text that are really relevant most of the time ain't worth it. Bident of Thassa Relies on having creatures to get the card draw and the ability to make opponents attack will just make them attack you. If they have a large amount of creatures, sure you pick off importants ones, but you end up taking a lot of damage. Fiery Emancipation Win more card that relies on having creatures. With a small amount of dragons, you can usually halve someones health so relying on one effect in the deck to do more damage isn't worth. Chromatic Orrery Big 7 mana artifact that sometimes you might not be able to cast and can't easily be protected. Lot of scenarios of you getting blown out.

Pestie89 depends, the latest major update as mentioned above is from July 27th. I'm not surprised for Kaalia, tho personally I'm not a fan of the card and won't run it. I strongly dislike Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman. They're not bad cards but they're far less efficient than straightforward ramp. First of all it's a discount on a body, which I don't run except for Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, because obviously it's susceptible for removal, and the colorless mana cost really is not a problem. Plus, The Ur-Dragon's discount with colorless is sufficient enough, you don't want to risk having too much of these cards while you'd never have enough lands. I'd rather run a 2 and 3CMC ramp spell instead because lands are less susceptible to removal and you're colour fixing which is extremely important.

The main things I can suggest are as many cost reducers as you can put in. These are the ones I run in my Ur Dragon deck:
