Omniscience_is_life Thanks, good call on both of those! Gatherer had a real hard time returning any results when I tried searching for this effect; even the cards I knew about wouldn't come up when I basically re-wrote the rules text verbatim. Anyway, obviously Leyline Tyrant is not applicable in this deck, and Mana Omnath just won't do quite enough to merit inclusion. Usually any deck I make that includes green winds up being mostly green, but not in this case. Omnath would only retain about 25% of my mana on average. I'll probably be fine with just the 2 cards I'm gonna be running, especially once I get some tutors going. Thanks again though!

Technically, Omnath, Locus of Mana can hold your mana as well--just not for all of it ;) (Leyline Tyrant does the same effect in red, should you ever need something of the sort there!)

Thanks for the comment, DragonWolf420!

This deck was more just for fun, and was a challenge deck I built with a friend to see what the other could come up with given the combo of Leyline Tyrant and Braid of Fire. I'm sure with some tweaking it could be more competitive, but that wasn't my intention with this deck.

It wouldn't let me edit my last post for some reason...

Trying out Atarka as commander wouldn't require any additional changes, so I'd recommend doing that first. Just switch Atarka and Radha's places and see if Atarka helps the deck run smoother or if you enjoy being able to have double-strike dragons more often. If so, great! If not... that's fine, too!

I'd definitely recommend checking out Klauth, though. He's a big dragon, has haste and can ramp out stupid amounts of mana depending on the power of your other creatures, which, since you have a lot of big dragons, should be easy! If you do like the idea of Klauth as commander, I'd also recommend checking out Horizon Stone as another way to keep any leftover mana that Klauth generated (like Leyline Tyrant, which is already in the deck).

Thanks for the response!

I'd love Phyrexian Altar for a handful of my decks but the high price point has kept me from getting one. Hopefully it gets a reprint sometime soon. Su-Chi is on the Reserved List, so the price for that one will probably never come down. Cathodion is as close as we will probably get to it. Ashnod's Altar is a card that I should have a handful of, but have somehow never gotten. Might need to fix that sometime soon because it's a great card.

Bloodfire Colossus is pretty similar in effect to Ryusei, the Falling Star. Ryusei's effect is slightly cheaper, though, as it doesn't require an activation cost and just has to die. Leyline Tyrant, Altar of Dementia and Impulsive Pilferer are also great, but all of mine are in other decks at the moment.

I'm not terribly interested in infinite/game-winning combos as a whole, so I'll have to pass on Thornbite Staff related stuff.

Thornbite Staff

Phyrexian Altar

Ghired's Belligerence

Impulsive Pilferer

Ashnod's Altar

Leyline Tyrant

Scuttling Doom Engine


Altar of Dementia

Bloodfire Colossus

Aww dude you forgot the old school king of dragons Rorix Bladewing

He's not as flashy as he used to be, but always a fun dragon to run.

Also since you have the Braid of Fire + Leyline Tyrant you could consider Kumano, Master Yamabushi

He single handedly shuts down green ramp and other small utility creatures while also becoming a mana sink for your Braid of Fire + Leyline Tyrant combo. He's like $1 on TCG Player so he's super budget friendly.
