Hey fellow sky swarmer,

I feel it is necessary for you to upgrade your dragon arsenal. Some of your dragons are pretty weak (Immirsturn and Steel Hellkite ). Also, no need for Esika, God of the Tree  Flip and probably no need for Niv-Mizzet Reborn . It’s cool to play them, but they don’t help your strategy.

You should be focusing on creating value by ramping as much as possible, then playing sky swellers AKA dragons, hopefully doubling up on permanents in the process. Consider Traverse the Outlands as a major improvement, or even something big like Boundless Realms . If nothing else you can always cast your commander.

Dragon's Hoard < Commander's Sphere . No doubt about that.

I’d drop that irrelevant Aurelia instant spell for a Boros Charm to protect your investments or maybe give doublestrike.

Awesome! Baleful Strix is an oldie and a goodie, it acts like a psychological wall that no one really wants to attack into! It's a fine line with Niv-Mizzet Reborn and multicolor things, don't let it discourage you TOO much from running solid mono color cards. Drawing the needed cards consistently is just as good as drawing ALL the cards!

Good luck finding your fairytale happy ending (of your opponents)! XD

Morophon, the Boundless can work for multiple tribes. Just pick whichever you need when you cast it. Kaalia of the Vast for dragons, demons, angels. Alternatively you could find something that is dual typed like Niv-Mizzet Reborn and play off those 2 types.

Some hubs can be removed. Many archetypes we don't use the terms anymore as they were standard decks.

Cruel Control, Energy, Loam, Solar Flare, Team America and Vehicles. Mutate will eventually go on this list too.

However there are a number of archetypes made ever since Eldraine in many formats, and many of old archetypes.

  • Canadian Threshold: A legacy temur tempo deck that uses Dreadhorde Arcanist, oko and sometimes uro. Does not actually have any threshold cards.
  • Fires of Invention: The card from Throne of Eldraine has its own deck in pioneer.
  • Goblin Charbelcher: The card Goblin Charbelcher has had its own deck in many formats for years.
  • Gruul Utopia: A gruul, land destruction, enchanting lands for ramp, aggro deck in modern.
  • Hogaak: Even though the card is banned in modern its still a powerhouse in other formats. Not dredge really has it has no dredge cards.
  • Jeskai Xerox: A vintage jeskai tempo deck that uses the new Lavinia that shuts down all the vintage power nine mana pieces with Dreadhorde Arcanist as value generation.
  • Lotus Field: The card from M20 has its own deck in pioneer.
  • MUD: A colourless artifact and land lock deck in vintage. It's been around for a while.
  • Niv-Mizzet Reborn: The card from War of the Spark has its own deck in pioneer.
  • Oath of Druids: A vintage 4 colour (mostly simic) combo deck.
  • Omnath Ramp: Omnath, Locus of the Roil has its own deck in historic and pioneer.
  • Paradoxical Storm: A vintage combo deck? Not too sure how this works but it uses Paradoxical Outcome and one copy of Monastery Mentor to win.
  • Underworld Breach: The card from Theros beyond death has its own deck in ... a lot of places.
  • Urza: The card from modern horizons has its own deck in modern and legacy.

I'm also wary about the number of tribal stuff we have ... eventually the list will be mostly just creature types.

If yeago didn't tell you about the DragonShield hubs as far as I'm aware there are a special event promotion that goes on with DragonShield that uses our site for deck cataloguing.

LeaPlathTo be fair, TKS is pretty good.....

But yeah, they're not gonna learn. I have friends like this. I mean, I used to be the same way.... but I learn fast. It's kind of my superpower.

And my friends who've been playing longer still maindeck Shatter in their 'aggro' decks that can maybe win on turn 7 if they nut draw.

I know his type. He might as well be running Battle of Wits Bring to Light Niv-Mizzet Reborn Yorion, Sky Nomad with what he's trying to mash together.

I wish people like him would learn -- they have so many ideas and they could really shake up the world of mtg. But instead of learning, they take people telling them 'this idea can't work' as an insult and ignore 90% of what people advise them.

Looks.. mesmerising, I can't even.. think. I upvoted because the bringer of the dawns are straight out of my early magic days:)

Anyways Pillar of the Paruns is a land that fits the "theme", if you like crazy WURBG theme, Niv-Mizzet Reborn is also a powerhouse, it's stronger than Jegantha because it does something as soon as it touches the battlefield, Jegantha instead has to wait a turn cycle.

Lanzo493 on Ramp to Progenitus, What About …

Niv-Mizzet Reborn is hard to play right without lots of money for cards like Assassin's Trophy, Vindicate, Teferi, Time Raveler, etc. He's not that great otherwise.

I'd just suggest to have more card draw. It's essential in commander to draw cards, mostly because of the prevelance of boardwipes and the fact that 3 people are killing off your stuff at most points in the game. You've got to get enough cards out to overwhelm several people around the same time. Card advantage is half of it. The other half is mana ramp.

Lanzo493 on Ramp, Draw, Treasure, Ultimatum, PROGENITUS

Cool deck. Progenitus is a difficult card to handle. Since you're new to the commander format, I'll just give some general tips before saying more specific stuff.

The kings of EDH are card advantage and mana ramp. If you can do both, you'll probably win. Because a large portion of decks go towards these two categories, as well as spot removal and boardwipes and other interaction, commander decks don't have as many creatures as other formats do. Yes, your deck is creature light, but not terribly light either.

I would get rid of the curse cards altogether. They're only able to affect one opponent, which is an inefficient way to hurt people in a multiplayer format. The way I build my decks is with the intent to face off multiple people at once. Sometimes, I build my decks knowing that I'll be targeted by several opponents, so I just make my deck explosive enough to kill 1 opponent out of nowhere. Dealing with 2 enemies is easier than 3, anyway. But with a less cutthroat build, you'll be looking towards your opponents for help with a common enemy, so politics are important. Curses don't mesh well with that.

Niv-Mizzet Reborn just won't get you many cards. You don't have many 2 color cards, so he'll almost always get you nothing.

Bearer of the Heavens will hurt you as much as everybody else. It'll still kill your commander. It's no fun to restart a game from scratch like that.

Some great cards on a budget I would recommend are Faeburrow Elder, Firemind Vessel, Hedron Archive, Painful Truths, and probably some more creatures. Since you're running 5 colors, you can run whatever you want as long as it doesn't have too many pips of a single color. Unless it's Fiery Emancipation. That card's busted. One hit kill with your commander.
