Goldspan Dragon Discussion

I feel like you may be a bit too all in on cards like Poison-Tip Archer. It really feels like you're trying to play aristocrats, but Jund just isn't the best combo for it. Your deck can make decent amount of tokens, but most of these death triggers require actual creatures to be dying and you only run 26, most of which are cards you don't actually want to sacrifice. You also aren't even running nearly enough sacrifice outlets, certainly your commander makes a good sacrifice outlet, but 3 mana is a lot to pay if you plan to do so repeatedly across the course of the game, and this commander is fragile to removal and will get costly quickly.
I'd likely cut down on cards like Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith, Anax, Hardened in the Forge, and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper. Then focus more on value generation, cheap cards that generate more resources. Such as Mycosynth Wellspring, Ichor Wellspring, Goldspan Dragon, Tireless Tracker, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, and Courser of Kruphix.

In a Modern setting, this just seems a little too fair... Vessel of Volatility or Generator Servant might help accelerate you to a threat, though I actually think splashing Green for Goblin Anarchomancer might be the best answer, rather than Dragonlord's Servant. Green would also give you access to Realmwalker
The issue is dragons are expensive, so you need to either ramp (green) or cheat them into play (reanimate or polymorth style), maybe both... The other issue is the best (recent) dragons Terror of the Peaks and Goldspan Dragon are expensive in terms of money.

viewtifulstyle Hails fellow Dwarf Appreciator! There are not many of us. I totally understand what you mean, but with the treasure mechanic being so important, I felt that the playset of Goldspan Dragons was the least I could include. Since they aren't legendary either, Magda's final ability was the final straw.
I don't think I will include any more Dragons. The Hellkite Tyrant & Replicating Ring win condition is a little slow, and I will consider removing them if I can think of some cards worth replacing them with. Thanks for your input!

Cool. My first advice is finding a card or two that's a strong 1-drop. Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer I believe is the best choice for your deck as it gives card advantage + some ramp. You can also go with the hard ramp route by using Arbor Elf+Utopia Sprawl
For dragons to capitalize on, I would recommend guys like Goldspan Dragon or Terror of the Peaks or Obsidian Charmaw or Demanding Dragon. Dragonlord Kolaghan could be a fun 1-of card in the deck that serves as a game-closer. Smoldering Egg Flip seems like a really good 2-drop in this deck. Manamorphose would compliment Smoldering Egg Flip very well & give you card draw + mana fixing
Dragon Hatchling, Enduring Scalelord, and Orb of Dragonkind are terrible for modern & should be removed. Doomskar isnt that good for this deck and Earthquake is only good when we have lots of mana & dragons which we're probably in a winning position anyways.
This deck may actually be better in & use a similar shell to the delver decks that use Murktide Regent but you obviously splash in more dragons to get your desired flavor.

Sweet deck! Old Gnawbone works really well with Goldspan Dragon, which in turn works well with EDH staple Dockside Extortionist. Have you considered either of those two cards? They are pretty good value regardless. Carpet of Flowers and Deathrite Shaman are good too if you want to include those. Commander's Sphere might be better than Chromatic Lantern, but if you run into fixing issues often enough than maybe not!

Thanks for the suggestions Soulus101. I have an Isochron Scepter around, and might've had it in an early maybe list of this deck.
I'll admit, Magda was kind of a cutesy inclusion on my part. I have a couple of copies and wanted to play-test it. I think I envisioned it as either an early attacker that would produce a treasure each time it attacked, or it could be like a mid game pseudo-tutor if I had banked up 5+ treasures to help me grab out Bolas's Citadel, Uba Mask, or Goldspan Dragon to the battlefield. I haven't had the chance to play Magda irl, so I haven't updated the deck with new games played.
I think Magda's spot could either get swapped out for Isochron Scepter, Forsworn Paladin, or maaaaybe a Dockside Extortionist if I wanted to do the obvious. I also recently picked up a Grim Tutor, but wasn't sure which of my decks I'd put it in yet.

LandoLRodriguez Yeah so Goldspan Dragon is way too good haha! Hadn't read correctly the last sentence of text on him, him having hasting and conveniently dropping you 2 extra mana is way too good!! Also doubled up on Rowen because that emblem is insalely good in our deck, and at 3 mana he is easy to drop and bring back with Blood on the Snow. Testing going great, this deck is fun stuff! I am still hunting some wild cards to complete my mana base, but it is going good!

Aside from those 2, the treasures are generally helpful for playing interaction & removal when I need to, and playing stolen spells. I can also sac a bunch of treasures to Magda, Brazen Outlaw to tutor out Bolas's Citadel, Uba Mask, or Goldspan Dragon.
