First of all, I love your deck choices!

But I believe that Ancient Gold Dragon would be a very good card to add even if he doesn't have haste. First of all he’s a 7/10 good blocker for the turn he comes in unlike Ancient Copper Dragon (6/5) but I understand that it’s slow if you don’t have a way to give him haste. Love Copper Dragon treasures thought <3

Imagine having Dragon Tempest /Scourge of Valkas /Terror of the Peaks out when up to 20 x blue faerie dragons enters the battlefield. The amount of damage each trigger would do.

Also very good with all attack triggers or other cool dragons you have in the deck (Dromoka, the Eternal, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, Old Gnawbone, Silumgar, the Drifting Death,Utvara Hellkite, Wrathful Red Dragon, Defiant Thundermaw  Flip).

You could also potentially draw up to 20 cards if Kindred Discovery or Greater Good is on the battlefield. Puts a good number of counters on Dragon's Hoard also.

I’d love to hear your opinion on why you didn’t include him in your list with all the good synergies!

I think I would probably have to switch Balefire Dragon for Ancient Gold Dragon. Most big problematic creatures have more than 6 toughness so Balefire doesn’t get rid of them it’s only good against Tokens stacking strategies early on. I’d rather get many blockers each turn recurring and like explained you only need 1 of those 3 pieces (Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas/Terror of the Peaks) to do almost the same effect as Balefire but targeting anything.

Because of all the creatures that like attacking, I recommend Aggravated Assault. You have some effects in here that can even "go infinite" with it (Old Gnawbone and Ancient Copper Dragon being the main ones).

Profet93 You would think I would need to add more mana rocks, but honestly it has not been much of a problem getting The Ur-Dragon in to the battlefield. Ancient Copper Dragon, Cavern-Hoard Dragon, Decadent Dragon, Goldspan Dragon, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Morophon, the Boundless, Old Gnawbone, Rivaz of the Claw and Sarkhan, Soul Aflame all work very well as mana ramp in this deck.

phatkattz7 on Xenegos, God of Revels 2000 …

So I was playing Xenagos, God of Revels the other day, when things got out of hand VERY VERY fast. I am interested to hear any experiences others may have had with a non Cedh, power 9/10 deck without an infinite loop, that got out of hand quickly. Secondly, if I am wrong about my damage somewhere, let me know, I am doing this off the top of my head and during the game, I was shaking with excitement and was struggling to think lol.

T1) Mana Crypt, Taiga, Combat Celebrant.

T2) Mountain, Jeweled Lotus, Sneak Attack.

T3) Mountain, Sacrifice Jeweled Lotus, Cast Xenagos, God of Revels, Leaving Mana Crypt and a Mountain untapped to cast Wheel of Fortune.

T4) Play Kessig Wolf Run.

DreadKhan on Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest

I've always loved Mazirek, such a cool Commander! I think Make an Example would probably do some work in here, and it's little brother Do or Die would probably be decent as well.

Mitotic Slime is a good source of creatures-from-a-creature, the only ones that can compete are cards like Underworld Hermit, which makes an army of squirrels equal to your devotion to Black. There are things like Grismold, the Dreadsower that can make a lot of bodies (it gives them to opponents as well, but if you can force them to sacrifice those tokens both Grismold and Mazirek go nuts), Grismold even offers a backup Commander of a sort for long games when you might not be able to recast Mazirek.

I'm not sure if you're interested in reanimation effects, but Hell's Caretaker is a free sac each upkeep, and he can bring back your best creature in exchange for your worst. Coffin Queen can reanimate from any graveyard, but it's especially useful to reanimate your opponent's stuff because it gets exiled when it dies. If you want a repeatable reanimation effect there is Demon of Dark Schemes, this offers a small wipe and it works very well with Pitiless Plunderer and something like the aforementioned Mitotic Slime.

Since your Commander cares about sacrifice effects, have you thought about using Diligent Farmhand and Dawntreader Elk in here? There is also Burnished Hart, all of these ramp you and can trigger Mazirek if he's out. There is also Ordeal of Nylea that would work with Mazirek later game (or anything that can get in early). I'm not sure if it comes up very much, but I put Forsworn Paladin in my Golgari deck because it had Haakon, but what I noticed was that it's also a useful way to ramp in Black, which importantly can fix your mana (to let you cast Green ramp), it's very low to the ground and can generate triggers for Mazirek or help recast Mazirek later.

Have you ever tried Sadistic Hypnotist? This offers a free and infinite sac outlet, and the effect can be pretty strong if you've got a bunch of creatures to burn through. Another really versatile sac outlet is Infernal Tribute, this lets you sacrifice any non-token permanent (it has to be an actual card) to draw a new card. I'm not 100% on it being a fit, but Savra, Queen of the Golgari is a pretty impressive payoff if you regularly have creatures being sacrificed, it can put a lot of pressure on an opponent's board.

It can get very out of hand with Mazirek, but I feel like I have to mention One with the Kami, it's very good on Mazirek with a free sac outlet. Similarly any creatures you can find with Persist will work very well with Mazirek and sac outlets, though again, this might be more pushed than what you're looking for. I took a gander and Aerie Ouphes might be interesting, and there is always Woodfall Primus, these might help support your Puppeteers!

If you ever want to throw in something pricier, I think Old Gnawbone would be absolutely hilarious in here.

Legendary beatdown? It should be easy to get her out on turn three for a turn 4 attack. Load up on cheap legends like Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, Syr Faren, the Hengehammer, maybe Wilson, Refined Grizzly, and you have the start of a stompy deck.

Blackblade Reforged feels like a natural fit, too.

You could also ramp into bigger legendary creatures like Old Gnawbone or The Tarrasque and go for a big creature beatdown. Add some protection like Wrap in Vigor, Heroic Intervention, or Asceticism, depending on budget, and there's a deck.

I would say those are Doric's clearest strengths, ramping and face smashing, with a side of lands matter. I can't come up with anything too tricky or subtle to do with her as the centerpiece, so my suggestion is to dig into the aggro and swing hard.

Rhadamanthus on Commander format : Is scion …

8 months ago

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a reference link: Scion of the Ur-Dragon, Savage Ventmaw, Old Gnawbone. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in the question.

No, it won't work that way. Scion of the Ur-Dragon's ability doesn't create an extra copy of the dragon you choose, rather it makes Scion become a copy of that dragon until end of turn. When Scion becomes a copy, it will just be that dragon and won't have its normal printed abilities or the printed abilities from something else it may have been a copy of earlier in the turn.

You can use Scion's ability in a way that makes it become multiple other dragons in sequence, but in the end it will just be one of them, not all of them. Sometimes this can be useful, like in a combo where you activate Scion, immediately respond by activating it again, get Moltensteel Dragon with the first activation that resolves, respond by pumping up its power before the other Scion activation resolves, and then for the other Scion activation get Dragon Tyrant/Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and the +X/+0 effect you created will carry over. In your example, there's nothing that will carry over between Savage Ventmaw and Old Gnawbone.

  1. "Depends on opponents" so already probably not. If I'm not getting Old Gnawbone or Ancient Copper Dragon numbers of treasure out every point I don't want it if I have to pay 6+ mana. Sure it can be reduced but if an opponent has that many artifacts, you're probably not in a good spot anyway to where this dragon would change that.

  2. Rhystic Study is just a better draw spell. Card suffers the same problem as Rishkar's Expertise. If they kill the big dragon, you draw so few cards. Spending 8 mana to draw a few cards and put a few creatures into play with this deck is basically almost the same thing as casting them normally unless you get the expensive dragons.

  3. Thrakkus is good because he can make having few dragons very threatening. Klauth is cool but I've never had a spot for him. Greater Good is one of the best cards for drawing/fueling reanimator.

  4. If Birds of Paradise is bad, adding uncounterable to only legends which isn't a good majority of the dragons, doesn't move the needle for me with this card.
