Hey LordKunai,

Unfortunately none of those dragons work, because they don't have "Flash".

When WGD combo starts, and generates "infinite mana" flickering your lands, you'll either a) need a way to insert a piece ((Bogardan Hellkite) without stoping the loop, also if there are no other targets, you won't be able to stop the loop, b) Stop the loop and then restart it if it's a flicker ability, if your relying on an spell then no need to restart, but any of those dragons you would have to restart.

Omen of the Forge would work, but feels it's utlitiy outside of the WGD combo is just as bad or worse than the Bogardan Hellkite. Need something that can come in during the WGD combo, that can win the game by itself, but not be 9 mana and useless outside the combo.

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.

Hey man I like the look of the deck and was just wondering if Omen of the Forge might fit here, maybe over Seal of Fire? +1 regardless.

Twist35 Thanks for all the suggestions! I think the reason I liked Vessel of Ephemera over Omen of the Sun was because I can essentially cycle it to my graveyard with 5 mana rather than 6 so I can use it again. Plus, it makes evasive tokens as well. But I can definitely see the case for the flash on Omen of the Sun and that scry might come in handy.

The fonts are there because they can be recurred once for a decent sized effect. Later in the game, recursion becomes more difficult. So those cards are there for the late game stall when nothing else can get through. They will typically not be played early in the game, especially Font of Ire. They are also kind of my favorite flavor cards in the deck. So I think I'll keep them in my build, but feel free to switch them out in yours.

I agree on Oblivion Ring. I originally had them in the mainboard, but they aren't really able to be recurred so I switched them out for Omen of the Forge. I think it's definitely a meta call.

I agree on the sideboard. I was kind of going for a Heliod's Pilgrim sandbox. I think I definitely need to reevaluate the cards I've included there.

Appreciate the support, I'll test out some changes soon!

Titus7007 I will send you a request and hope to get some games in as well!
I feel like Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is a GREAT suggestion. Self sacrificing 1/1's are HILARIOUS to think about, her abilityto recast some of my sorceries are HUGE, and if I do opt for royal scions over narset her 0 ability will actually be pretty strong in the list! Thanks for that bro.

Aslo, after hearing what you and pistolpete said, I have decided to add Omen of the Forge into the sideboard, replacing some cards I never pull with karn anyway, to add in just that much more interaction game 2-3 while still keeping the enchantment card type. Again thanks so much!

Thanks for checking out the list and giving some feedback, means a lot bro!
Do you think that shatter the sky is just better than time wipe in the board or do you think I should run a 2/2 split end of day? You are def onto something there with it being a 4 drop over a 5 drop. One turn can make all the difference.
As for Big chandra, I wanted to include her but wouldn't know what to drop! Karn's ability to grab stuff from the board (also the fact he shuts down cat oven) make up for the fact I run zero artifacts main board. She is def gonna make me think going forward. Also if I go with titus7007's advice and run royal scions and baby chandra, she could be that much more potent. Def something to consider.

As for castle ardenvale, I know it belongs in the list, but mana pools are the hardest thing for me as a deck builder to get around. Do you think that it is just better in the list than castle vantress? I play on arena and have all the shocks so I could always drop the temples, but the scry from them and vantress has proven to be relatively worth inclusion.

Again, thank you so much for the feedback. Also pete, if you play on arena send me your tag so we can play some games too!!
