multimedia if I put Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner in the deck I could put Sarkhan the Masterless back in as well as I can use his ability to transform Kiora into a dragon

Hellkite Charger could replace Skanos Dragonheart? Both these Dragons want to attack to trigger abilities, but Skanos needs other Dragons to make it good, Charger doesn't. Skanos can't pump itself and doesn't have evasion, Charger can be part of a combo Skanos can't. Thrakkus the Butcher is a better five drop Dragon with trample who pumps itself as well as all other Dragons you control.

There's another combo you could add that creates infinite Dragons with Astral Dragon and the enabler Cursed Mirror provides a wincon, haste to attack. Could of course have other wincons: Scourge of Valkas, Dragon Tempest or Warstorm Surge. Mirror is a good card, you wouldn't just be adding it for the combo, it's a mana rock that if it becomes a Dragon when it enters then Miirym can copy it.

When you control Cursed Mirror that's not a creature have Astral Dragon enter and copy Mirror. The Mirror tokens then enter as Astral and copy original Mirror that's not a creature and repeat. This creates a loop of Astral and Mirror making copies of each other, each copy of Mirror is a 4/4 Astral Dragon with haste. To break the loop stop copying Mirror with Astral, copy something else.


Sarkhan Unbroken would be another fine upgrade, but not when on a budget. $25 for a nonDragon creature card when on a budget seems not a good use of funds. For $25 you could improve the manabase with many land upgrades Reflecting Pool, more Pain lands (Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef), some Bond lands (Spire Garden), some Filter lands (Flooded Grove) or some Check lands (Sulfur Falls, Rootbound Crag). In my opinion when on a budget allocating some of the budget for good lands is more important than adding flashy cards such as Sarkhan.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is less powerful than Sarkhan, but it's also less than $2. Kiora can still do much work as another Temur Ascendancy draw effect as well as give you 7 turns of ramp that can untap any permanent including Sol Ring or an Orb.

Shamanic Revelation could be a cut for some lower mana cost draw since you're more likely to have a higher power Dragon then that same number of Dragon creatures. That's what makes Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise good draw with Dragons is they have high power. Revelation is better when playing little tribal creatures such as Elves which tend to have quantity of creatures rather than single creature with high power.

Appreciate you've already covered this in the discussion above, but I have to insist on clone creatures for Mirrym :-D

The dead card thing is not as much of an issue as you may think; your main target isn't one of the dragons in your deck, it's Miirym herself. Even though many of the clones will cause you to legend-rule away Miirym, she just ends up in the command zone ready to go again, and you end up with two copies of Miirym. You could potentially recast Miirym then for two more copies, and any future clones can target the non-legendary version. Any creature clone (i.e. not spells that create tokens) will do, but Spark Double and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces are the stars.

I don't own a Kindred Discovery, but I found Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner does much the same job for only 3 mana, and the temp ramp is a nice extra.

It's based on the fact that Karn, the Great Creator can both return Pestilent Cauldron  Flip from the side and return it from exile once it's cast as Restorative Burst  Flip.

The preparation of the combo is having Nykthos in play with enough devotion, two copies of Karn and two copies of Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner spread across your hand, the battlefield, and your graveyard.

You tap Nykthos for at least 14 mana.
Cast Karn2 for 4 mana, Karn1 is legendary rule-d in the yard.
Karn2 gets Pestilent Cauldron from the side.
Cast Kiora2 for 3 mana, Kiora1 is legendary rule-d in the yard.
Kiora2 untaps Nykthos.
You cast Restorative Burst for 5 mana and it gets exiled, get back Karn1 and Kiora1 from the yard, and gain 4 life.
You spend the last 2 mana for Nykthos and add at least 14 mana.

It's infinite life and infinite mana, the latter of whom lets you cast the front side of Pestilent Cauldron with one of the few black sources in your deck and mill your opponent.

Now this is Pod Racing! Ledger Shredder is an odd choice though... Have you considered Temur Ascendancy or Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner as better card draw options?

Apart from that this deck looks strong! Glad someone else has seen the value clones bring to this deck over straight up dragons (Once you clone Miirym it's all but game over), hope you flood out many a board!

BronzeArrow on Return Of The Ur-Dragon: A Budget Dragon Primer

Hey! Cool primer! I run a relatively interaction-based version of UR-Dragon for playing in groups that run competitively, so hopefully I can make some decent suggestions!

Arcane Signet, Orb of Dragonkind, and Fellwar Stone make for some super cool early artifact ramp, since this deck needs tons of mana to function.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner and Sarkhan, Fireblood are two planeswalkers I would seriously look at including as well. Kiora lets you untap artifacts (or a land if you have none) and Sarkhan straight up gives you mana for casting dragons.

Finally, Mystic Reflection is huge for either getting a copy of a dragon you want to play or for screwing over you opponent's played commander.

I have tons of other cards I included, so please check out what I have if you are looking for stuff to slot in!

bushido_man96 on Atraxa Invites Us To a Friendly Match To The Death

I like seeing more casual builds with Atraxa. I've got one that focuses on spore counters and making fungi.

I'm not sure Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is very good here. With only 17 creatures to cast in the deck, and not half of them meeting the requirements to trigger a draw, you'd be better off with some more consistent card draw effects. If you want to replace her with another cheap planeswalker that would draw cards, Jace Beleren would be more consistent. Return of the Wildspeaker is another good one that would work well with the few sizable creatures you could have on the board.

I disagree
surrak is one of the best commanders for dragon tribal
1st the only thing better then a 5/5 flying dragon is a 5/5 flying dragon with trample!
2nd flash speed middle finger to blue (you cant counter my dragons)
although the deck will mostly be gruul colors dabing into blue gives access to massive card advantage like Shaman of the Great Hunt, Temur Ascendancy, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
and last but not least there is Surrak Dragonclaw+Ohran Frostfang wich results in one of the most terrifying board states a dragon tribal deck can have.

EDIT: If you dont know why that board state is terrifying Click Here, the only thing that can block that board state is banding creatures with flying
