Nesting Dragon

Creature — Dragon


Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, create a 0/2 red Dragon Egg creature token with defender and "When this creature dies, create a 2/2 red Dragon creature token with flying and ': This creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.'"

Abaques on Commander Masters Previews and Speculation

With the cost of packs I'm not sure how much the cost of cards that are expensive due to demand (like say, Heroic Intervention will actually drop, especially for mythics. I do think this will serve to crash the price of a bunch of cards that are expensive due to insufficient printings (looking at you Nesting Dragon. I'm pretty happy about the medallions and the Fierce Guardianship cycle being at rare as those are all very good cards that cost way too much.

The sealed prices are just ridiculous right now. $300 for a box of draft boosters? A single collector booster pack is $65 right now. At least the expected value won't be tied up all in a handful of mythics like in Double Masters 2.

Hello! I saw your deck help tag and I wanted to give my two cents.

First of all, beware cloning effects: a single Clone on Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund can steal your whole board.

Secondly, I would put Hellkite Tyrant, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and Crucible of Fire back. The Tyrant is greeeeeeat if you face players that rely on artifacts. Drakuseth is amazing in killing creatures or just dish out damage. Both are made even more reliable with the many haste enablers you have in the deck. Crucible is an undercosted pump effect, even better on tokens: Nesting Dragon.

Have you considered Mayhem Devil? I think this card would be a big boon for your deck.

Also, if you're looking for sacrifice engines that are creatures, creatures with Devour are a great way to build big creatures. These include, but are not limited to, Caldera Hellion, Feaster of Fools, Preyseizer Dragon, and Thunder-Thrash Elder.

Also, since you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, I think you can get away with removing a few Swamps to add in more lands you sacrifice for lands. These include, but are not limited to, Evolving Wilds, Fabled Passage, Jund Panorama and Maestros Theater.

If you choose to go this route, creatures with landfall would benefit from this. They include, but are not limited to, Bloodghast, Moraug, Fury of Akoum, Nesting Dragon, and Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out Happy Hunting!

No, she doesn't shut down shocklands. Paying life for your shockland is not a trigger. It does not use the stack, you cannot react to it, just like you can't react to the creature type being named with a Cavern of Souls. Because the oracle text says "As ... enters the battlefield" not "When ... enters the battlefield".

It looks like the people defending her never played with Tocatli Honor Guard, Hushbringer, Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff and have no idea what the oracle text actually means. And Norn is worse, since it's every permanent entering the battlefield, not just creatures. Like Strict Proctor.

TypicalTimmy I looked at your Miirym deck, here's the "occasional benefits" Elesh Norn is actually going to shut down or interfere with:

Astral Dragon

Bramble Sovereign

Ganax, Astral Hunter

Nesting Dragon

Patron of the Arts

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Rapacious Dragon

Red Dragon

Scourge of Valkas

Skyline Despot

Swashbuckler Extraordinaire

Terror of the Peaks

Dragon's Hoard

Spinerock Knoll

Dragon Tempest

Flameshadow Conjuring

Garruk's Uprising

Guardian Project

Impact Tremors

Kindred Discovery

Temur Ascendancy

Warstorm Surge

That's a lot of synergy, ramp, carddraw and wincons shut down by a commander. About 1/3rd of all your nonland cards. And that deck is going to have a hard time removing her too, by the looks of it.

Now there are a few cards that get better playing against Norn: bouncelands like Boros Garrison don't return lands to hand anymore, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger doesn't need to sacrifice itself, but effects like those are not enough to catch up with the Norn player.

What's this "no game-winning effects in white" everyone is talking about? Cathars' Crusade will end the game in a hurry, especially if you pair it up with something like Blessed Sanctuary. Double up on every O-ring effect. Stonehorn Dignitary will keep you alive, especially if you play Teleportation Circle and Conjurer's Closet, as one definitely will in this deck. Felidar Retreat and Emeria Shepherd with all your Land Tax effects will snowball into an enormous boardstate easily. Solitude will rule the table. Sun Titan is still one of the most played white creatures for a reason. For carddraw that white wasn't supposed to have, Spirited Companion, Carrier Pigeons, Combat Thresher, Farsight Adept, Inspiring Overseer, Mentor of the Meek, Priest of Ancient Lore, Resistance Squad, Roving Harper, Rumor Gatherer, Search Party Captain, Skyscanner, Thraben Inspector, Wall of Omens all double up with Norn. Because everyone memed that white is a bad colour, nobody seems to know what the color has to offer. It could already hold its own without such a saltmine of a card for the command zone, and if you need this middle finger to half the popular deck archetypes to even consider building it, you do you, but prepare to be avoided.

The decks playing great! A few people in my playgroup say it’s their favorite deck that I play. Imposing Grandeur puts in work, I’m glad you convinced me to add it. I’ve pulled out a good chunk of wins, mostly with Chandra's Ignition general flings and Reckless Fireweaver.

Nesting Dragon is mostly a playgroup specific include, my group runs a lot of edict effects. The eggs buy more time to prevent having to sac Maraxus so that I can actually fling him.

I definitely want to add the Keldon enlist card

Also how's your deck playing. Is it going off and surprising people or are you facing some problems? I built my equipment/treasure deck this deck inspired me to make on mtgo and it was a good time but I'm holding off on building it in paper unless I can play more magic irl. Work has me jailed practicly.

XD your list is pretty solid beyond Nesting Dragon (hehe) perhaps. I don't know where you would cut is maybe Imposing Grandeur working for you? Or the Heart-Piercer Manticore perhaps?

I noticed that you are playing some of the fetches, Nesting Dragon could be worth looking at as its always fun to be rewarded for playing lands. This card also gives you pseudo board wipe protection as when the eggs get destroyed they still hatch. If you are interested I’d cut Immersturm Predator for it

If you add in Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia or Phyrexian Altar, it'll give you free sac outlets that are both reliable and useful.

Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession and Primal Vigor also expand the number of egg tokens your Commander can create, helping out greatly. There's also Determined Iteration which is a very odd thing for red - as most red permanents / spells will cause the token to be exiled. In this case, it sacrifices it for you!

I wasn't sure if I saw Nesting Dragon, who will create Egg tokens. So I am suggesting that as well <3

Hope I helped! :D
