Hey, on a budget really well done for your first Dragon tribal deck. On low budget you have good card sense and deck building skills.

There's many excellent Dragons here, but some stand out as subpar, not needed.

Scaled Nurturer is lackluster ramp because only green mana and the mana can only be used to cast a Dragon. Can do much better for two drop ramp. Fierce Empath is another budget creature tutor to get a Dragon.

There's one area of deck building that you've left out, recursion and green is the best color for it because it's recursion of any card such as Eternal Witness. In multiplayer Commander your stuff is going to be destroyed a lot having some card recursion can help to get back certain cards that are important to gameplay such as Temur Ascendancy. Witness and Empath can be blinked to be repeatable.


Sarkhan the Masterless is less impactful here for five mana then if you're playing more Planeswalkers or a Commander Planeswalker. Bower Passage can help Dragons to wreck your opponents. For two mana it makes them essentially unblockable. It can stop annoying little Spirits from being blockers against Dragons.

Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch and then repeatable cheat Dragon or cheat land from your hand. Dragons don't really need +3/+3 from Crucible of Fire for four mana since they're already high power/toughness and flying makes them good attackers.

12x basic Mountains is a lot compared to the other numbers of basic lands. Replacing some basic Mountains with more dual lands could improve color fixing from lands to help gameplay. Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef, Karplusan Forest Pain lands have just been reprinted in newest set Dominaria United, get them while they're $2 or less each.

Good luck with your deck.

Nice list and really helpful if you start with a new color combination for the first time.

Some green cards to edit:

Shard Convergence

Sprouting Vines

Kura, the Boundless Sky

Scaled Nurturer

Some Artifacts:

Cursed Mirror

Patriar's Seal

For some reasons, i like the 5 alara borderposts: Fieldmist Borderpost, Wildfield Borderpost, Mistvein Borderpost, Veinfire Borderpost and Firewild Borderpost.

You also missed the 10 Cluestones (Dimir Cluestone...) as well as the 10 Lockets (Azorius Locket...).

Maybe you have to sort the artifacts a bit more (1 color, 2 colors, etc.)

Scaled Nurturer is great, though I'm trying to stay away from creature ramp a bit because the deck gets a lot of board wipes against it and the artifacts are doing a great job. That said, if anything, I might consider replacing Caged Sun for it, which I may very likely do! Thanks.

Earthquake Dragon is already in the deck. =)

Rishkar's Expertise is great, but I'm not sure I can really take advantage of it. The pure card draw is awesome, but the expense of man is high. This is generally made up for in the fact you can drop a 5 CMC creature for free, but I only really have 8 viable targets for that, so it's not as likely that I'll have a 4-5 CMC in hand. I've been torn on adding it to the list.

Garruk's Uprising was in the deck originally but replaced with Elemental Bond. EB works a little better if I have something like Caged Sun out for +1/+1, as then I can get extra card draw when playing smaller creatures like Draconic Disciple, and I generally prefer to diversify non-essential spells, so at the moment I don't want to duplicate that kind of a card draw effect. That said, if I end up removing Caged Sun, then I may swap back to Garruk's Uprising since the cantrip on casting is nice, as is the Trample. Hmmm, yeah, really thinking about dropping Caged Sun now, lol. It's hard to do though, it's a huge mana advantage that I can get out on turn 3 or 4 sometimes, and I really, really need that mana. Ugh.

Same goes for Return of the Wildspeaker versus Hunter's Prowess, which basically does all of what RotW does that only let's you do one of for the same price.

Thanks for the great suggestions, I'll be mulling them over for a bit.

Cool list!

Have you considered Scaled Nurturer as 2cmc on theme ramp piece? Earthquake Dragon seems to be the new green “going too guy” in dragon tribal.

How about Rishkar's Expertise or Return of the Wildspeaker? I like the versatility of both. And Garruk's Uprising could do an awesome job in this list, too.

A tried a dragon deck by myself for the first time (Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm) and tried to stick as far on theme as i could. Maybe you take a look and share some thoughts :) would you mind, if i link it?

First of, cool list.

Baldur’s Gate gave a lot of on-theme dragon support… like Korlessa, Scale Singer, Scaled Nurturer, Earthquake Dragon, Draconic Muralists or Renari, Merchant of Marvels.

As a mana-rock, i would recommend Orb of Dragonkind, it ramps your dragons or can be used to dig into your library.

Carnelian Orb of Dragonkind ramps and gives haste and Jade Orb of Dragonkind provides protection… and i like, that they are on flavour :D

I tried a Miirym deck by myself and hope you dokn’t mind, if i link it. Maybe you find some Inspiration.

Thanks WoomyKing, I'll try adding more ramp. I think I have both Search for Tomorrow and Scaled Nurturer just sitting around, and I can easily get an Arcane Signet and Sol Ring. I haven't looked at their prices in years but am glad they're super cheap now.

I have played around with Sneak Attack it’s a very cool card and can help but I ended up removing it for Monster Manual. I’m trying to let my dragons stick around so this is more on theme with the list. It might make it back in sometime but I’m not sure when.

Im currently not running cards like Dragonborn Looter and Scaled Nurturer as I’d rather be able to play big dragons. And they have anti synergy with cards like The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, Monster Manual and most of my etb draw triggers. In a different build I would play these cards but not in this one, they are definitely good cards tho. Im also not running any mana dorks for this reason.

I have also toyed around with Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy but her ability is sadly a cast trigger and I’m trying to cheat cards in play without casting them. Instead I ended up playing Purphoros, God of the Forge as he triggers on etb’s which has great synergy with all my token makers especially Ancient Gold Dragon as rolling a nat 20 can kill the entire table. It does less damage in some cases but it’s more consistent and it helps that its a god that can be found with The World Tree

For now I’m still playing Manaform Hellkite as the tokens she creates have haste and if my commander is out they generate extra card draw. Or she creates extra etb effects to Ping people to death with my ping bois. She is probably the next one to go tho.

As for the dragon count, I’m trying to keep it at a minimum of 30 dragons which is where I’m at right now. Which might sound a bit low but there are plenty of dragons that create dragon tokens. Right now I have Ancient Gold Dragon which creates on average 11 dragons per combat or over 20 if she has double strike. Dragon Broodmother, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Manaform Hellkite, Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and Utvara Hellkite. And ofcourse my reanimation stuff. I’m currently testing a few more dragons that might bumb me up to 31/32 but they have to be better than cards that are already in here which can be quite hard. But Dragonlord Atarka might be coming back soon as he has great synergy with the D20 dragons

The biggest problem is the 100 card limit as I also need to play some more protection spells. Heroic Intervention and Teferi's Protection as my playgroup is playing more board wipes. Counterspells can also be the way to go but I rather not play those as a personal preference

Hello, I think Sneak Attack would be a great addition to this deck.

I am not so sure about Manaform Hellkite because this is a creature based deck. And I think a slightly higher Dragon-co would help with some of the Dragon Synergy pieces. Have you considered Scaled Nurturer and Dragonborn Looter? Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy is great as well.
