Argy on Jeskai Dragon Control

This seems as though it is Izzet, not Jeskai.

It also feels slightly more like an Artifact deck, than a Dragon deck.

Although a lot of the spells reference Dragons, you only have six Dragons in the Mainboard.

This makes me think that there would be a lot of times where you don't have any in hand, to take advantage of some of your spells.

26 lands feels a little too many. I would ditch an Island or a Mountain

How do you want this deck to win? Through beat down?

If so, moving Glorybringer to the Mainboard might be a good idea.

Or other spells that can help you draw better, like Search for Azcanta  Flip (which also assists Dig Through Time )

Try to work out what exactly you want this deck to do. It feels a little unfocused, right now.

At this stage it is:

  • Artifacts matter

  • Scry and draw

  • Play Dragons or show from hand

  • Board wipe the Opponent

These are all good things but, they are pulling this deck in all different directions.

You can't be sure you will be able to do any one thing, when you most need to.

Hello Hachendis,

Dragons & Dragon Support:

Dragonlord's Servant reduces the cost of your dragon spells by {1}.

Dream Devourer reduces the cost of your dragons by {2} by foretelling them with Dream Devourer , meaning, you could potentially play Dragonlord Kolaghan on turn 4.

Haven of the Spirit Dragon acts as a mana confluence with the ability to recur a dragon from the graveyard to your hand.

Crucible of Fire is the ultimate +3/+3 anthem effect.

Crucible of the Spirit Dragon : builds up mana to cast your dragons.

Draconic Roar costs the same as a Lightning Strike and if you reveal a dragon you get to Lightning Bolt your opponent's face for free - talk about value!

Crux of Fate a one sided board wipe.

Glorybringer : repeated Flame Slash on a flying and haste dragon.

Surviving the early game:

Frost Bite or Wild Slash are good 1 drop removal spells, with Frost Bite acting as a Lightning Bolt is you have a snow covered mountain in play.

Bloodchief's Thirst is better than Bedevil because for it is more useful in the early game and is worth the cost of having to pay the extra mana to remove a MV 3 or greater creature or planeswalker later in the game.

Remaining thoughts:

Thoughtseize and Duress is good in the sideboard vs control decks because you will want to remove their sweepers like Supreme Verdict .

Sign in Blood should be removed for early game removal or to keep in some Thoughtseize s in as Sign in Blood is less valuable in surviving the early game.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

Philosopher

In modern the 5 cmc dragon threat is really only going to make it you need to have all 4 copies of Sarkhan, Fireblood , he even has the means to reduce the effects of his own redundancy so why not increase the chances you get a 5 cmc dragon out faster?

now your current choice of 5 cmc dragon maybe the new hotness, but what does it really do for your deck synergy wise? Glorybringer and Demanding Dragon both fit the scary dragon top end threat while being removal. Stormbreath Dragon represents a lot of damage and is harder for white decks to remove with path. Terror of the Peaks though is probably the dragon with the most synergy, you get bonus damage from your dragons, though Hunted Dragon does give the opponent some creatures to trigger the slumbering dragon.

Now your sprite really wants free spells or ones that are cheap and cantrip, for consideration Gut Shot and Dismember are both cheap/free removal, Mutagenic Growth also free, these cards also synergize with another suggestion lower down. Manamorphose is probably the most free spell. Opt is just strong cantrip.

Now for possibly the best dragon for this shell that seems to like to target it's own creatures with spells Orvar, the All-Form will get out of hand pretty easily giving all your buff spells a Clone tagged on it.

other considerations are the above mentioned bolts, cheaper spell and doesn't require hoops for it to dome someone. Mutavault is a dragon man land, extra worth considering if you go heavier into a dragon tribal. the full 4 on copter, it is just the best vehicle for it's cmc, well there is the The Omenkeel ... I'd almost suggest having just 4x of these two as your full vehicle detachment the god side would even provide late game options. Spell Pierce is also likely a strong choice over the dragon counterspell, double blue can be tricky to pull off and also have double red.

Aside from Outcast tokens and the Mimic, you only have 4 dragons to top out at. Most Gruul dragon packages I've seen run in the 8-12 range. Some popular inclusions are Thunderbreak Regent , Glorybringer , Harbinger of the Hunt , Scourge of Valkas , Mirrorwing Dragon , Terror of the Peaks , Lathliss, Dragon Queen , and the odd Steel Hellkite . Personally, I'm a fan of going for multiple attacks with Hellkite Charger and Savage Ventmaw . The new Leyline Tyrant might have some role in such a strategy, but I haven't had the chance to test it. The first two cards I'd cut would probably be Wolfir Silverheart and Grim Lavamancer . The former is undeniably powerful soulbonded to a double-striking dragon, but for 5 mana, it may as well just be another double-striking dragon itself. As for the wizard, I get the impression its ability will act like a 1 mana tax that distracts from casting your bombs. Even if you can afford to activate it often, a lack of fetchlands (even if they're budget alternatives) will limit its potency.

Otherwise, you have a couple of cards that have stronger replacements in modern. Titanic Growth is worse than Phytoburst at least some of the time, although I'd prefer 1 cost versions like Might of Old Krosa , Groundswell , Blossoming Defense , or Vines of Vastwood anyway. Similarly, Run Amok could probably be Rancor if the trample is important. As long as you're still interested in playing around with the graveyard, Traverse the Ulvenwald could be a neat replacement for Track Down that lets you literally track down your singleton dragons. Adventurous Impulse and Oath of Nissa are less powerful but less demanding options. Shackles of Treachery likely represents a mechanic you don't even need in the deck, but if you want an Act of Treason , I've had pretty decent success with Kari Zev's Expertise . The last cards I'll suggest are just some other dragon synergy tools. Draconic Roar is an amped Lightning Strike , Dragon Tempest can be a much cheaper Warstorm Surge if you're pumping out enough reptiles, and Frontier Siege offers flexibility between ramp and control. Finally, there are the spirit dragon lands if you think those would be useful.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your build!

Hi SnakeByte77 I think it depends on what you want from the curve topper. Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and Glorybringer deal with creatures our opponents control and would therefore have my preference. But if you want a more resilient threat, Goldspan Dragon might be nice to have access too.

Would Goldspan Dragon be a good upgrade to Glorybringer ?

Going to try the following additions + cuts:

  • In: Thought Vessel ; Out: Skyshroud Claim - SC is decent ramp, but this swap makes sense due to minimal forest targets + a general effort to reduce the average CMC. The no max hand size redundancy is just gravy.
  • In: Bonders' Enclave + Castle Garenbrig ; Out: Copperline Gorge + Detection Tower - The probability of Copperline being an ETB tapped land is too great & I've still got Arcane Lighthouse in here if need be. Making room for these 2 superior utility lands feels like a good trade.
  • In: Bala Ged Recovery ; Out: Forest - A bit controversial as this takes my land count down to 35, but I've got a woeful lack of recursion in here and I suspect this will come in handy more often than not. Worst case, I have to use it as an ETB tapped Forest. Best case, a mega threat gets a 2nd shot at life.
  • In: Glorybringer ; Out: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker - A tough cut to make as good 'ol KJ has been in here since day 1, but as pointed out, he's a big target and not pivotal the game plan. Glorybringer joins the dragon crew and the additional removal option is a welcomed bonus.
  • In: Harmonize + Rishkar's Expertise ; Out: Feldon of the Third Path + Surge of Strength - A few have pointed out the lack of card draw in here and it's a compeltely valid point. These 2 additional options should add value, even if they are a little on the casting cost steep side. Feldon was a cute idea as a recursion engine, but he's also fragile, conditional and Bala Ged Recovery is going to be preferable in most cases anyway. Surge is a sneaky combat trick, but the discard downside was sometimes annoying.

  • Those are my trades for now. I'll need to give it a few plays to see how it feels, but I'm hopeful these card swap choices are fun ones and help to smooth things out a little.
