KayneMarco I'm kind of happy where the brew is at now but thanks for the suggestions! Neheb, the Eternal was in the original draft with Savage Ventmaw but after some goldfishing they really were just win more cards. I had actually never heard of Sakiko, Mother of Summer what a neat card its basically a snake Old Gnawbone. I love elves but I feel as though Grand Warlord Radha falls a tad short here; she's probably better at the helm of her own deck with low to the ground aggro creatures and big splashy pay offs. Omnath, Locus of Mana is in the same boat - I love angry little green koolaid man but he's better at the helm of his own deck. I had high hopes for Leyline Tyrant I thought the ability is really cool but it's just not impactful enough unless you're already ahead. Also, I noticed most of the suggestions were like Horizon Stone; while storing mana for a spell is great and all this deck cannot really do it in a sneaky way like kurphix, we swing and cast our pay off if we have to bank we've already lost.

Hi! thanks for checking this deck out. Hard agree on Curse of Opulence, and I'll slot that in for Braid of Fire. No idea how that ended up in this decklist it was only in there originally because this list used to have a Leyline Tyrant . In general I agree this deck needs more ramp, been goldfishing quite a bit and the current situation is a little slow. I'll see what else can be slotted in.

Hello again Minousmancer,

Sorry about that, I figured since I was just talking of adding 1-off's you would see them as placeholders more than else, like the Fabled Passage . Otherwise there's nothing too exciting that's rotation proof. Cosmos Elixir or Lithoform Engine could do when it comes to artifacts because they're nice to have in play but annoying to cast, even though they're not amazing in this deck. With dragons, Leyline Tyrant could be interesting to leverage all the extra mana from treasures but it's a bit awkward to use up 5 of those to put it into play, and you have nothing worth casting with Velomachus Lorehold which makes it underwhelming too.

At least there's 2 more expansions to look forward to before worrying about the sets that rotate out, you'll most likely get some more toys by then!

Good luck with all the fathers looking to eat btw! haha!

Ok so firstly, you're sitting at 101 cards so you'll need to cut something. Personally I would drop Territorial Hellkite as I don't find it that exceptional for its cmc, and the drawbacks that you can't 100% control who it targets for attacks.

Personally, there are just some differences in dragon choices. I would include Skittles ( Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon ), Terror of the Peaks (It's in your description, but not on your list), and Leyline Tyrant just thinking about it.

Also I would consider running some mana rocks like Arcane Signet or Chromatic Lantern , and maybe Sarkhan, Fireblood .

I would put your power level as probably a 5 or so, as your first few turns are going to be really uneventful since you don't have much in the way of low CMC spells (perfectly fine for a battlecruiser meta, but if you want spice out of the gate, it will take some retooling). In terms of interaction, I would run some more spot removal using black for some cheap and effective kill spells.

Leyline Tyrant can work here. Just tap all your red mana sources at the end of each of your opponent's turns and you build up mana quite quickly.

I don't feel like Expressive Iteration is doing its best work here. It really works best when you can find something you can cast that turn with it, instead of in a deck with a bunch of big spells. I feel like you need more early things or more controlling things to last you through the early game. Storm's Wrath would do that, as would like Brazen Borrower to slow down your opponents.

i have a couple of recommendations

Leyline Tyrant is really solid and an easy turn 3 with some ramp

secound i would stick strombreath, thundermaw in the sb as they are good againts some decks, and only so-so against others,

id up mu number of terror of the peaks (its really the best one at that cmc)

i would seriously consider Draconic Roar in the 75 and some copies of Dragonlord's Servant (means you can stick a 5 drop turn 3)

also if you what to go all in on goldspan it combos really well with Magda, Brazen Outlaw and to a lesser extent Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge and MindStone
