Lotus Ramp Example List:
4x Elvish Reclaimer as repeatable Lotus tutor
4x Sylvan Scrying as single-use Lotus tutor
4x Pelakka Wurm
Lotus and lands. You'd be winning with either Nissa or Pelakka Wurm.
t1 land, Elvish Reclaimer
t2 land, sylvan scrying
t3 land, Kiora
t4 use Reclaimer to jam Lotus, untap lotus with Kiora, Pore over the pages and Vizer to sift through your deck a bunch of times until you can jam Pelakka wurm.
That is, of course, a rough draft.
Wishclaw Blink exmaple deck:
4x Wishclaw Talisman
4x Oath of Kaya
1x Nine Lives
4x Fatal Push
Plus some stuff, get to 80 cards, add Yorion in SB as companion, eventually win with token flood.
I want you to look at those too first-draft fairly optimized decks. Take a really good look. I want you to count the number of cards that are in both decks.
Now, I want you to do this exercise: guess how many cards in the lotus ramp deck can go in the wishclaw deck, and how many cards from the wishclaw deck can go in the lotus ramp deck.
Tell me your answer, and we'll see if you're right.

Hey, really well done on a budget. I presume you're Luiz Felipe Santarem?
Some budget upgrades to consider:
- Court of Bounty --> Colossal Majesty
- Faeburrow Elder --> Wayfarer's Bauble
- Jodah, Archmage Eternal --> Crucible of Fire
- Teneb, the Harvester --> Darigaaz Reincarnated
- Dragonlord Ojutai --> Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius
- Savage Ventmaw --> Broodmate Dragon
- Fierce Empath --> Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge
- Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner --> Dragonlord's Servant
- Haunting Voyage --> Fearsome Awakening
- Beast Within --> Despark
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start on a budget.
Elemental Bond and Garruk's Packleader draw a card when each 3/3 Serpent is created. Maskwood Nexus has already been suggested and it can make cards that create tokens much better since then those tokens are Serpents. Nexus can also be repeatable protection for Koma for three mana to create a Changeling. Nadir Kraken creates tokens and cares about +1/+1 counters. Nadir + Bond + Koma can create a Tentacle and grow Nadir on each player's turn for one mana. Chord of Calling can get Packleader and Whir of Invention can get Nexus.
Koma is a Commander who you want to cast as fast as possible because of her ability to create a Serpent on each player's turn. For this reason ramp should be priority because even if you all you draw is ramp that's fine because you can use it to ramp into Koma. You have the right idea with Kinnan, consider expanding on nonland ramp that taps?
- Incubation Druid
- Devoted Druid
- Gyre Sage
- Kiora's Follower
- Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
- Simic Signet
- Talisman of Curiosity
Incubation, Sage, Devoted care about +1/+1 counters to make more ramp. If you control a land that can make blue mana then Incubation can make blue mana making her the best option.

Hey, with what you have so far well done on a budget. Nice Omniscience Amonkhet invocation :)
Some budget cards to help with ramp:
Elder can potentially tap to make five mana, all five colors. It can make more mana when you have different colored permanents in your control making it busted when you control Scion of the Ur-Dragon . By itself it can make two mana (green and white), that alone is good for ramp/color fixing. Jodah's effect lets you cheat the casting cost of cards especially Ur-Dragon; cast him for five instead of nine. He's is excellent with Omniscience as casting cost will be difficult with this manabase.
Kiora can be repeatable draw when Dragons ETB and she can also be ramp. You can use her for seven turns for ramp before she dies and being able to untap any permanent means you can untap a mana rock or a mana dork. Crop Rotation is helpful to get any land by sacing a basic land to then tutor and put it onto the battlefield. Sylvan Scrying can tutor for any land.
Repeatable draw when Dragons ETB, being able to cheat creatures onto the battlefield and more haste are helpful effects with Dragons.
Some budget tutors to search for Dragon(s). Creature tutors can replace some draw spells since you want to draw Dragons anyway, might as well search for the one you want.
Some budget versatile instant removal or counterspells.
The manabase can be improved on a budget; 32 lands is low. I wouldn't go below 35 and I would play as much as 38 since you don't want to miss land drops when high CMC Dragons are the cards you want to be casting.
- Exotic Orchard
- Path of Ancestry
- Unclaimed Territory
- Cinder Glade
- Canopy Vista
- Prairie Stream
- Sunken Hollow
- Smoldering Marsh
- Yavimaya Coast
- Llanowar Wastes
- Savage Lands
- Jungle Shrine
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Ash Barrens
More five color lands help with color fixing. On a budget I recommend more basic Forests and the five Battle lands since Battle lands such as Cinder Glade have interaction with basic lands. You only need to control two basic lands of any type to activate a Battle land to ETB untaped. If you control a basic Forest and a basic Mountain then Sunken Hollow will ETB untapped.
Farseek is a land ramp spell that can search for any Battle land and put it onto the battlefield. It's helpful for color fixing to be able to ramp with a dual land. The green budget Pain lands such as Yavimaya Coast are nice since they can ETB untapped turn two or three to make green to cast a ramp spell. If you're going to play lands that always ETB tapped then Tri lands such as Savage Lands give you more color fixing from three different color choices. In five colors the Tri lands give you more than the Scry lands.
In the manabase you want at least 12 sources of each color and you want more green and red sources then the rest. Tri lands help with color fixing to give you more sources of colors. Red and green are the two most important colors for Dragons. Green for early game ramp and red for Dragons. Green is for ramp that also gets the other colors that's why it should have the most basic lands to give you more chances of drawing a green source early to cast ramp.
Good luck with your deck.

Phyrexian Metamorph, Spark Double and Clever Impersonator would both be good additions here. I don’t know what you would cut for either but they’re awesome. Especially clever since it could hit one of your enchantments to double those effects. Spark double is sick because it hits your commander.
I have been really enjoying Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner her passive ability is great and she comes in with 7 loyalty for 3 mana.
Emergent Ultimatum is a cool one but I don’t know what you could cast for free off that with so many X cards...
Thats all I have. This is a very solid list.

Hey! I have a pretty similar deck that I am building and looking at your deck has given me ideas for changing up my own. Cool list! Here are some suggestions of mine:
I would like to say that Glorybringer is an amazing card that doubles as removal as well as being a hasty dragon for Sword of Feast and Famine, Bear Umbra, or any other attack triggering cards you may have.
Also, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is an amazing addition to a deck like this because it ramps and draws cards at the same time! Untapping artifacts is fun.
Morophon, the Boundless is an interesting card to look at too if you want cheaper and stronger dragons (not to mention 4 mana Ur-Dragon). It also counts as a dragon itself!
If you want to see what I have. here is a link to mine: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ur-dragon-competitive-midrange/
Again, really cool deck. Ur-Dragon is fun to play!

Cards to remove: Altered Ego, Horizon Chimera, Vastwood Hydra, Elixir of Immortality, Otherworld Atlas, Fog, Haze of Pollen, Respite, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, Prosperity, Wildest Dreams, Thryx, the Sudden Storm
Be carful with cards like Prosperity because you give your opponents a lot of cards. You pay a lot of mana for them to draw a lot of cards.
Your lands suck. I can help you find better lands to use if you would like. You will be fine if you don't change them, but better lands go a long way.
Thryx, the Sudden Storm is a decent card, but look at your mana curve. You don't have many cards over 5 cmc. In other words, he doesn't reduce the cost of many spells.
Cards like Fog don't work well in commander. When life totals are so high, you don't care about one individual combat, but gaining large long term value. This is a single use card. It will also likely sit in your hand as a dead card most of the game. Compare Fog to a card like Propaganda

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait and Soul of the Harvest are good for card draw. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy seems pretty broken. and Ilysian Caryatid or Bloom Tender combined with Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real can make infinite mana. also Basalt Monolith + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy does infinite mana aswell.
You might want to think about running more Clone like creatures to capitalize on sakashima's legend breaking. having multiple copies of Tatyova, Benthic Druid means you should have no issue drawing your entire library and casting your highest cmc card to dump your entire library onto the field
