Monster Manual

Artifact

, : You may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield.


(You may cast Monster Manual from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)


Zoological Study

Sorcery — Adventure

Mill five cards, then return a creature card milled this way to your hand. (Then send this card on an Adventure in exile. You may cast the creature from exile.)


(You may cast Zoological Study for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast it, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Zoological Study and put it on the stack, this card is treated only as Monster Manual in whatever zone it is in.)

(When not exiled on an adventure, Adventure cards function identically to modal double faced cards when regarding to the interactions of cards that look at them or attempt to cast them.)

You're describing a nice playtest. I like your take on Miirym. Upvote!

May i suggest some (maybe) interesting cards? You're already using the Dragon Orbs... Orb of Dragonkind is a 2cmc colourfixing rock which can also dig into your library. Monster Manual can cheat your dragon into play. Sure, more cmc than Sneak Attack but your beasty-boys do not have to be sacrificed in the end. The Great Henge would cost or even just most of the time and grants enormous value. More on the flavour side is Korlessa, Scale Singer which is pseudo card advantage. Herald's Horn reduces your dragons cost and can provide card advantage (works pretty well with Lapis Orb of Dragonkind). Rishkar's Expertise is a powerhouse draw and could cast 17 creatures or almost all your artifacts/enchantments.

And finally, i like Wrathful Red Dragon as a protection piece. In addition it's a surprise "i-win" with Blasphemous Act and/or Chain Reaction

I did a take on Miirym by myself and i hope you don't mind me linking it in here to hear your opinion on it.

Housegheist on Miirym's Dragonhorde

I noticed a lack of interaction. I would recommend playing Blasphemous Act and/or Chain Reaction as they deal with opponents boardstate and are a surprise i-win-condition with Wrathful Red Dragon.

Monster Manual can cheat your Dragons into play and is (still) budget friendly.

Orb of Dragonkind fixes mana as a 2 cmc rock and can dig into your library.

Patron of the Arts is a nice on-theme ramp creature which provides 2 treasures total.

Other than that, i like it, that you stick on creatures not on specific dragons and clones :) I tried a take on Miirym by myself. Maybe you want to take a look

MEINEID on The Ur-Dragon, quest for 100%

Ok I guess our decks have slightly different attitudes then. For my deck bringing a dragon onto the field with haste is crucial which is why Sneak Attack is fantastic and I will play it over Monster Manual.

I get why you don't want to play small creatures. I've had a similar deck with Atla Palani, Nest Tender as a commander, it can be fun.

I assume you mean't Atarka, World Render and not Dragonlord Atarka?

Another idea would be Elemental Bond over Mystic Remora because it synergises better with your deck.

Have you played around with Mutavault? I have considered it for my deck and am not yet sure wether to include it or not.

Last question from my part would be if Temple of the Dragon Queen is really good enough to make the cut. Reading the card makes me doubt it but i haven't tried it out yet.

I have played around with Sneak Attack it’s a very cool card and can help but I ended up removing it for Monster Manual. I’m trying to let my dragons stick around so this is more on theme with the list. It might make it back in sometime but I’m not sure when.

Im currently not running cards like Dragonborn Looter and Scaled Nurturer as I’d rather be able to play big dragons. And they have anti synergy with cards like The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, Monster Manual and most of my etb draw triggers. In a different build I would play these cards but not in this one, they are definitely good cards tho. Im also not running any mana dorks for this reason.

I have also toyed around with Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy but her ability is sadly a cast trigger and I’m trying to cheat cards in play without casting them. Instead I ended up playing Purphoros, God of the Forge as he triggers on etb’s which has great synergy with all my token makers especially Ancient Gold Dragon as rolling a nat 20 can kill the entire table. It does less damage in some cases but it’s more consistent and it helps that its a god that can be found with The World Tree

For now I’m still playing Manaform Hellkite as the tokens she creates have haste and if my commander is out they generate extra card draw. Or she creates extra etb effects to Ping people to death with my ping bois. She is probably the next one to go tho.

As for the dragon count, I’m trying to keep it at a minimum of 30 dragons which is where I’m at right now. Which might sound a bit low but there are plenty of dragons that create dragon tokens. Right now I have Ancient Gold Dragon which creates on average 11 dragons per combat or over 20 if she has double strike. Dragon Broodmother, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Manaform Hellkite, Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and Utvara Hellkite. And ofcourse my reanimation stuff. I’m currently testing a few more dragons that might bumb me up to 31/32 but they have to be better than cards that are already in here which can be quite hard. But Dragonlord Atarka might be coming back soon as he has great synergy with the D20 dragons

The biggest problem is the 100 card limit as I also need to play some more protection spells. Heroic Intervention and Teferi's Protection as my playgroup is playing more board wipes. Counterspells can also be the way to go but I rather not play those as a personal preference

@ZXddgsw12 - Thanks for the suggestions! Atrocious Experiment and Druidic Ritual might have a place in the deck.. i'll have to see if i can replace some of the cards.. Monster Manual might be too slow though..

I have been working on this deck too. Mana is indeed the problem but once you get going, you very quickly wipe out most people.

I personally think you can work in 1 of 2 ways for this deck.
One of them is mana ramp which is what I see your trying to work with. The other way is cheat in dragons!

Alaundo the Seer is a way to help you get out some high cost dragons however is a bit slow build up.

Minion of the Mighty is perfect for this deck as it will help you at least cheat in 1 dragon and with your commander that 1 becomes 2!

Monster Manual and Quicksilver Amulet are great helpers as well.

Heirloom Blade can help keep dragons in your hand so the fun never stops.

Other notable additions are

Molten Echoes for give you an extra monster with haste which also works great with Minion of the Mighty. Thanks to your commander you will get 3 dragons for 1 turn, 1 has haste but is gone at end of turn. Alternatively just add an enchantment that provides haste so both your original cast dragon and his token can both attack right away.

Skanos Dragonheart is a crazy powerful addition that can be slightly lower cost then some dragons.

Old Gnawbone and Goldspan Dragon and absolute powerhouses if you can afford them.

To help deal with pesky commanders out there I like to always include at least one nullifying enchantment such as Lignify

Swap Cancel for Counterspell

Also Sneak Attack and Elvish Piper might be good to consider in here.

Atrocious Experiment can be another Funeral Rites if you need more card draw while adding more self milling effects

Druidic Ritual is another self mill card and can recur a land and a creature when you need it during later turns

another new card is Monster Manual that has self milling effect but can summon a creature from your hand cheap
