Numot, the Devastator Discussion

In: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - Out: Despark Moving the deck balance more towards asymetrical boardwipes instead of single target removals. Ugin and Primeval moved the average CMC to 4.0 which is quite high. I'll decide after some playtesting if Ugin should stay or not, maybe in favour of ramp like Skyshroud Claim
I left Niv-Mizzet Reborn in the deck for now, in goldfishing he usually draws me 1-3 cards which is not bad for a 5 colored mana dragon that can be cast with a simple Jegantha tap.
Down to 25 dragons, which is the lowest I want to go. I'd like to make room for Skyshroud Claim due to the higher average CMC and also still planning on adding Fire Covenant whenever I get my hands on it.

Here are my thoughts on your suggestions:
Numot, the Devastator As you said in your previous message, his trigger is conditional+mana. Are you suggesting that in this case the effect is worth it? For some poor soul, two blown up lands can be devastating.
Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is not in my deck since my meta is Control Magic heavy. One player runs a Merieke Ri Berit deck and another runs Braids, Conjurer Adept. Braids will be awesome for me to drop dragons for free but he has alot of clone effects in his deck, making Karrthus a big liability.
Sarkhan Unbroken was in my initial draft but I ended up cutting him.. a mistake on my part? Are you usually happy to draw him vs a dragon or a more interactive card?
Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is an awesome card.. already on my short list to add if I can find room for it.
I blew by Sarkhan the Mad during my research, not being overly impressed by his first two abilities. I usually don't put too much value on the ultimate since they are rarely attained... however this madman can ult on turn 1, which I missed. I suppose it can be a kill blow with a large board presence, is that why you are recommending him? It's kind of a win-more card isn't it? Worth the slot?
Jegantha's mana can only be used to pay for colored mana, therefore only reducing Dragonstorm down to 8 CMC, however I can see that even with a storm count of 1 or 2 this can be a powerhouse finisher. What's your experience with it?
I see Maelstrom Wanderer often in various decklists.. I fail to see the appeal. He's not a dragon, and there are already many haste enablers in the deck for much cheaper, so it must be the cascade, cascade. I'm not a fan of the variability here, with my luck it will hit a couple of 2-3 CMC ramp/removal.
I have been on the receiving end of Xenagos, God of Revels enough to know that it would be a true powerhouse in this deck. Added to shortlist.
My meta is not control heavy, pass on Surrak Dragonclaw for now.
I am forever grateful for all the help you have provided so far! Having said that... what I am most likely in need of next is more discussion on what cards I could cut.

And in the course of sticking my foot in my mouth w/r/t your companion restrictions at least a few times over, I thought of a few suggestions that do meet the restrictions and that your companion could help you ramp out more reliably:

Have you considered putting Numot, the Devastator in this deck, or would you prefer to avoid angering your opponents by destroying their lands?

If your meta is very slow, Azor, the Lawbringer is consistent card advantage.

This deck doesn't have boardwipes for people to hate you. Also doesn't have enough BS creatures that survive, which is critical for max hatred. Also, I'm assuming this is 1v1, which significantly decreases the amount of hate. It's cute, but it's WAYYYYYYYY too nice. If you really want people to suffer, I would recommend building around Avacyn, Angel of Hope in EDH for your opponents to hate you and have a "symmetrical" effect each time, or Mageta the Lion if you don't really care about your opponents complaining about your board and are willing to just make the world suffer. For a similarly infuriating deck, I'd recommend Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Numot, the Devastator stax in which case your opponents just don't play magic instead of getting to not have their stuff matter.

As for Niv Mizzet, I need to know the ruling on cards that contain (for example) UW, but are Numot, the Devastator , so aren't just UW, and if I could take that as the Azorius card in the pack. If so it is a 9/10, if not it is only a 5/10.
