Old Gnawbone

Legendary Creature — Dragon

Flying

Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, create that many Treasure tokens. (They're colourless artifact tokens with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any colour.)

I love the deck. The treasure sub theme is always fun to play with. I would recommend a couple of cards to improve the theme. Ziatora, the Incinerator is a great use for soon to b dead blitzed creatures, can b used as creature removal or burning players lives as well as ramping you. Grim Hireling is a great ramp card in creature based strategies. Lastly if budget is not an issue, Old Gnawbone is another great creature for treasure based decks. Your deck looks like a ton of fun to play. Great to see people brewing Henzie. Come take a look at my deck and tell me what I could improve.

Atarka's Command, Tibalt, Rakish Instigator, and Leyline of Punishment are all good ways to keep your friend from gaining life from pinging you, then you can bonk him with dragons to the dome.

Orbs of Warding and Witchbane Orb are both excellent for giving you hexproof, making him unable to target you with his Commander's ability.

Three Visits and Farseek are great ramp spells that are pretty cheap that can replace some of your more expensive ramp. I'd also definitely advise picking up the Talisman of Unity in your maybe board.

You have a good density of creatures, in particular your dragons. I'd consider cutting some of the higher cost ones that have no immediate impact on the board to sub out for things like Old Gnawbone, Dragon Tempest, Dragonlord's Servant, Utvara Hellkite and Goldspan Dragon, though. These are things that help your gameplan (Dragon storm) and have immediate impact on the board. Some of those are kinda spensive, but #longtermgoals. Shared Animosity is also a nuts card in tribal decks.

Love,

Old Gnawbone, Mox Tantalite, Rampant Growth, and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove all seem like solid inclusions. You could also take Garruk, Primal Hunter out for a spin, its triple green mana pips are a bit scary though. Greater Good might be a better option.

Also, See the Unwritten.

plakjekaas yeah i’m not sure how they ever justified printing Urabrask the Hidden, that thing is a massive break.

Feed the Swarm is in-pie for black now, as they’ve added enchantment destruction to the list of things that colour is able to do (i guess expect to see more of this effect going forwards).

I agree that Old Gnawbone feels really out of place, and not necessarily something green shouldn’t be able to do, but definitely something no respectable green player wants to be doing for that much mana-investment.

Urabrask the Hidden tapping down opposing creatures like Authority of the Consuls or Blind Obedience is a post-modern-printed white effect on a card with only red pips in the cost. We all know about Feed the Swarm. I think it's a bold statement to say they haven't broken the color pie in years. I personally think Old Gnawbone is horrible as a green card, and only has merit in flavor. They just have gotten better at breaking it without looking broken.

Some thoughts:

  • any deck running Asmo should be playing the full playset of both it and The Underworld Cookbook. I would suggest against stuff like Goblin Engineer to assemble these pieces as it’s slow and easy to disrupt. Same goes for the cat-cauldron combo, run a playset of both or none at all.

  • It definately feels like you’re doing waay too much here, and it’s going to cause your deck to function very clumsily. I would suggest ditching all of Old Gnawbone, Shimmer Dragon, Goldspan Dragon and Hellkite Tyrant (they’re all painfully expensive mana-wise, and none of them really do enough. Imo you need your payoffs to capitalise on what your deck is doing, like Sieve and Troll-King do… just run more of those), as well as Goblin Engineer (adds more moving parts to an already complicated archetype), Magda, Brazen Outlaw (again, adds more unnecessary clutter), Ignoble Hierarch (if you need more mana after the Goose, then your curve is too high. Also, your curve is too high), and Tireless Tracker (it’s not helping your gameplan in any way that’s meaningful).

  • i would also suggest ditching Chord of Calling - if you’re running mostly playsets, as you should be, this card becomes more clumsy in this deck than helpful. Something like Unearth will prove to be much more useful at keeping stuff on-board.

  • assuming you’re wanting Asmo to perform her best, you really need a playset of Ovalchase Daredevil to help profit from the discard triggers.

  • have you considered Chatterfang, Squirrel General? Might be useful seeing as you’re leaning quite heavily into green.

Update:

I went ahead and made a non-budget version of this deck, Placidusax Who? (Shoutout to Elden Ring) I still plan on fixing both versions of the deck. It looks like they both may need more ways to cheat out The Ur-Dragon along with the other big dragons, so I'm looking at more ramp outlets and cards like Geode Golem.The non-budget version has the potential to pump out dragons with cascade and myriad and generate tons of tokens. I looked at cards like Rain of Riches, Revel in Riches, Legion Loyalty, Smothering Tithe, along with Old Gnawbone and Goldspan Dragon and decided to try them out in Placidusax Who?

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
