Iymrith, Desert Doom

Iymrith, Desert Doom

Legendary Creature — Dragon

Flying

This has ward as long as this is untapped. (Whenever this becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays .)

Whenever this deals combat damage to a player, draw a card. Then if you have fewer than three cards in hand, draw cards equal to the difference.

What are some of the most difficult card names to pronounce? (And let me get the obvious Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar out of the way)

A few I have: War Oracle, Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom, and Iymrith, Desert Doom.

Go crazy!

Commander Updates Since July 2021

I added new commanders to the roster of options under the Player Profiles. They include:

Several new commanders work with tokens:

As a theme, tokens have felt well supported in the cube so far, even though I did not do so intentionally. As a result, I don't anticipate making changes, but it could be that I work to support this theme more fully or concentrate it in BGU, in case the new +1/+1 counters theme does not work out.

Some commanders moved out of the "high power" tier. Most dropped to "mid power," but a couple are now deemed "fringe competitive."

Unfortunately, most of the partner commanders I'd included were moved, so you're stuck with one of the handful of 4- or 5-color commanders if you're looking to maximize the flexibility of your deck's color identity.

I'd first swap out 4x Duress for 4x Inquisition of Kozilek. It is a little more expensive but it's so much better and the upgrade is definitely worth it.

Spell Pierce isn't a great four of counterspell. I'd replace it with Counterspell. Silumgar's Scorn is a fun Dragon-themed counterspell as well.

Iymrith, Desert Doom is a little pricey but it's a dragon and a very powerful control finisher.

TheRoaringRegisaur Iymrith, Desert Doom, Hall of Storm Giants, Emeria's Call  Flip, and Mordenkainen. My friend and I built this deck akin to traditional control for the Standard 2022 queue and it has performed very stellar against the format. Excited to play this through into new rotation with ACTUAL sideboard now. Bo1 was the only thing we hated.

What do you think of Murktide Regent? I think he is a lot faster than Iymrith, Desert Doom and costs only two Mana in the best case. He also profits from any Card leaving your Graveyard from Demilich.

I think he could speed everything a little bit up.

Hey, nice version of Ur-Dragon, but this is not aggro, it's midrange. That's fine because you don't really want aggro in multiplayer Commander since it doesn't do enough when you have three or more opponents who each start with 40 life.

Four mana even with Ur-Dragon cost reduction for Dragons is the average amount of mana you'll spend to cast your first spell which is high. You also really want a ramp mana source in your opening hand and 10 ramp sources is not enough to consistently have one. You have lots of powerful tutors here as well as Tiamat which means you could reduce the Dragons to the best ones and cut the subpar ones which will speed up gameplay. Old Gnawbone + Hellkite Charger is a Dragon win condition combo for infinite attacks.

The better Dragons:

In the place of other Dragons because of the high budget consider adding more lower CMC support cards?

Cultivate, Kodama's Reach and Rampant Growth could also be replaced with better/quicker ramp and since only playing 6 basic lands.

Good luck with your deck.

Okay. I'm convinced and have found my new religion. Consider me henceforth a Cleric of the Card and Dice Gods.

My buddy and I cracked a bundle each to draft with. Sure it's not a proper draft but it's cheaper and you get a much larger pool of cards to pick from.

Of the ten packs.

Four mythics.

NoviceDeckBuilderHere on Too Much Mana

Update! Pulling too many high cmc cards early game. Also, the deck played like it needed a 1-3 cmc creature that had a 5 in power, that could lower the cost of The Great Henge enough to be an optional play turn 4. So, ADDED Jaspera Sentinel +1 Lovestruck Beast +4 REPLACED Iymrith, Desert Doom -2 Ilysian Caryatid -3.

Went 10-1 in mtg arena platinum 3 hrs before posting this.
