Haven of the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Feiryn on Here there be DRAGONS!

3 weeks ago

Assuming you still would like help, here are my thoughts just going off what you already have (so your mainboard and sideboard).

First of all your land situation needs to be sorted out. You have an insanely high average cmc (4.74) so you're going to be looking at about 40 lands without the very pricy ramp cards. 30 lands is in the range that decks with an average of about 2cmc or lower run. Here's a quickly made list of your lands that I'd use:

You almost always want to prioritise lands that can come in untapped over ones that always enter tapped. This is because auto-tapped lands basically set you back a turn, so it's often better to just run a basic over something like Sheltered Thicket. The exception here goes to the Triomes because they offer three colours and more importantly can be picked up by your fetchlands.

As for the rest of your cards, here's what I recommend cutting:

And add in their places, assuming you're running 40 lands:

Hopefully that helps, and let me know if you have any questions! These are just suggestions after a brief runthrough of course, so feel free to take them or leave them!

Hey, for less than $150 you've done well with your version. You clearly know how to build a Commander deck with a low budget.

Cards that are $3 or less each to consider adding:

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a very good Dragon as a repeatable Dragon tutor and it combos with Teneb, the Harvester + Bladewing the Risen to reanimate the Dragons you tutor for. Consider cutting some of the least good Dragons for a few creature tutors that can search for the better Dragons?

Temur Ascendancy does a lot for a three drop, haste for all creatures you control and repeatable draw when most Dragons ETB including Dragon tokens with 4 or more power. These land suggestions would add five more lands that can ETB untapped meaning they could replace five lands that always ETB tapped. Cascading Cataracts is helpful with Jodah/Fist letting you for five mana of any colors plus tapping Cataracts to cast any card.

Cards to consider cutting:

Even on a budget the Vivid lands are not good unless you have proliferate to put more counters on them and I don't recommend adding proliferate just for the Vivids.

Good luck with your deck.

I like the suggestion! I don't think it will be better than Fire Prophecy though, which is the card that it would replace. Red struggles with card draw as it is, I'm worried that switching this in would slow the entire deck down/make it more inconsistent.

However, it does combo nicely with Haven of the Spirit Dragon. And having extra graveyard play does open up options in the late game - which is when Haven of the Spirit Dragon get used. I'm very skeptical but I will give it a playtest and see what happens.

Hey, good start.

Sol Ring, Command Tower and Arcane Signet are three staples in Commander that are within the budget here. Scion of the Ur-Dragon, Utvara Hellkite and Lathliss, Dragon Queen are Dragon upgrades. Dragon Tempest has powerful effects with Dragons. Elemental Bond is good repeatable draw with Dragons.

Ketria Triome and Raugrin Triome are the other two Triomes and Ketria is good in combination with Indatha Triome with Skyshroud Claim which can give you all five colors from two Triomes. Nature's Lore is another land ramp spell that can search for a Forest Triome or Forest Shock land. Crop Rotation is a land tutor for any land and puts the land onto the battlefield. Haven of the Spirit Dragon is another Rainbow land for Dragons.

Uh... Im not sure you know what your commander does based on your creature pool. On a scale of 1-10, i would rate this a 1.5, but i'll help you with that. You might as well be running Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. You have a small number of Dragons in the deck, and I noticed a bunch of useless non-dragon creatures in the deck.

32 lands is wayyyy to few, and you have an awful mana base, even on a budget, having only 1 tri-land and a random af arrangement of shock and gain lands.

You have little ramp, if any, which will slow you down greatly in a format such as commander Another concern is your lack of mana rocks. Why only one signet?

Your removal is pathetic, to be honest, with only one murder. Removal is IMPORTANT in commander, being used at both utility and a rich bargaining tool in the political side of the format.

But enough with flaming the deck, here is what I would put it.

First off, let's talk about your commander. It supports a heavy dragon tribal theme, and you want nearly all of your creatures creatures that either add to this theme or ramp you to get him out earlier. If you are to be running a non dragon creature, make sure it is a utility creature such as Reclamation Sage that can either ramp you or get rid of problems on the board.

Here is what I would cut if i was building him:

Creatures:

Ajani's Pridemate - No lifegain synergy and bad creature in EDH

Brineborn Cutthroat - A 2/2 with flash wont cut it in Ur

Corpse Knight - No sacrifice theme

Dreadmalkin - cmon, really?

Empyrean Eagle - Other cards do this a lot more efficiently

Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch - No madness or counter theme

Faerie Vandal - just no

Garenbrig Carver - bad in general

Gravedigger - not a dragon

Grumgully, the Generous - not efficent

Hackrobat

Kronch Wrangler

Law-Rune Enforcer

Leafkin Druid

Lightning Stormkin

Loxodon Sergeant

Meddling Mage

Artifact:

This is just a few thing I think the deck could need, obviously it needs ore board wipes and wincons, however this is a good place to start. I want to be clear, I dont hate the deck, but I Think it needs improvements to become and 8. For your first commander deck, it's just fine. Thanks for reading. Cheers

There are some other "targets" for discard, but I don't think all of these are the best for you. I'll list each of them instead of loads of paragraphs.

  1. Punishing Fire - Could be a replacement for Spit Flame but honestly that's up to you. Punishing Fire is technically more versatile since it hits any target and depending on the matchup it can be easier to retrieve. However, Spit Flame has an easier time removing creatures. This one more to just let you know exists.

  2. Flamewake Phoenix - Again, a card that I'm mentioning just to let you know exists. Since most of your dragons have 4 or more power, you could easily get this card back from your graveyard but you would also deviate a bit from the draconic theme.

  3. Ore-Scale Guardian - This one isn't a target himself, but he makes it more profitable for you to discard lands, specially if you end up being mana flooded.

  4. Runehorn Hellkite - Can be used to refill your hand late game(?) and as he's no diffenrent from other dragons, there's no downside letting him rest in your grave until you active it's effect.

  5. Fiery Temper - Basically adds 3 damage for one mana to all of your discard spells.

These are the monored option. I also have options that would actually require you to splash for black. These are, of course, not mandatory for you to run, but it's always good to get to know more cards.

  1. Bladewing the Risen -A giant dragon that reanimates another one when it comes into play and also has the ability to pump all your dragons. Obviously he's not a target for discard himself. However, he can make other dragons more interesting to discard.

  2. Boneyard Scourge - Pretty simple. Dump him into the graveyard and when one of your dragons die, you get him back for a really cheap cost.

  3. Bone Dragon - A recurrable dragon that can be left in the grave until the late game when it can come back multiple times, assuming you have enough cards in the grave.

  4. Dread Return - By sacrificing 3 Bladewing's Thrall you could get a free reanimation spell since when you get the dragon back from the graveyard you'll also get the Thralls back.

In case you consider any of these black cards or you just don't feel confortable not bein able to cast the Thralls, there are a few budget lands that can help you with the mana. Also, the Haven of the Spirit Dragon could help you cast the black dragons but not activate their abilities.

About the cuts for the Thralls, you are still above 60 cards. There are some other cuts you can also make.

  1. Dragonspeaker Shaman - They're quite expensive and you already have a pretty decent amount of "ramp" and cost discounts. Even more, they're really easy to kill.

  2. Slumbering Dragon - He seems quite tempting to play as he can grow a lot. However, that's the problem, he CAN grow but nothing guarantees he will. Also, only one in the deck won't help at all.

  3. Sarkhan's Triumph - Since you now have more card draw, you could maybe cut one of these.

  4. For the Thralls I'd cut one Spinerock Knoll , Mudslide and the two Dragon Egg s.

Some extra tribal lands you may want to look at could be Ally Encampment , Flamekin Village , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Mutavault , Sliver Hive , and Unholy Grotto .

All have some juicy flavor for the "every tribe" theme, you're running.

For starters, 33 lands is low. I like to start with 36 land, 8 ramp/rocks and go from there increasing or lowering as needed. To speed it up after increasing it would be to eliminate as many tap lands/rocks as possible. Ditch the vivids for basics, City of Brass , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , and Mana Confluence are multicolor lands that enter untapped that can replace some tap lands... sure they pain, and one's limited to dragons but no pain no gain. Other than that just try to balance it for your colors... for instance if you are RG heavy, then you'd want to keep the Naya, Jund, and Temur tri lands above the others.

As for the dragons they seem all over the place. I found an interesting deck page for scion combos you could check out if you want to go that route. Hasn't been update in 3yrs but it's a start.

Ur dragon is probably best to focus on combat synergies (when dragon attacks, extra combats, etc, and tokens (i.e. Utvara HellKite). You could try a control route I suppose but idk, honestly I've been trying to piece it together for awhile but still seems weird and all over with what's in the list. I think there are a few dragons you could do without: Chromium, Niv, and Okagachi. I feel they require more dedication than you can afford for a tribal deck. I'm on the fence about a bunch: DL Ojutai could be replaced with some good card draw, Dromoka jr and Vorosh I'm not sure counters are necessary with tribal bluffs and all, and Karthus because he can be copied and well... its bad times.

Sorry it took so long, tried looking at it at work but didn't give me enough time to really focus on it. Hopefully it helps some at least.
