If you control one swamp and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Scion of Draco will count is as being all basic land types and cost .

The easiest way to explain why is that Dryad says "Lands you control are every basic land type in addition to their other types", and Scion only checks to see how many basic land types your lands have.

So if I have Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Scion of Draco how would they interact? Say for example I have a mountain, forest and swamp, would draco only count what they are or count that plus the other types?

I'm totally on-board for this idea! My 5 color Scion of Draco deck would utilize that for sure.

This would also be a good hub for folks who use custom commanders could use as well. As it stands, it's very difficult to find other users/decks that run more 'rule-bent' lists.

Hey Cyclonious24, good question!

Essentially I value the extra 4 cmc of Draco more than the cheaper cost and extra abilities of Scion of Draco . A 4/4 creature that gives our other creatures hexproof and/or lifelink is just not powerful enough for an 8 mana spell. Our mana is much better used to ninjutsu another ninja, hold up counter magic, or take an extra turn. On the other hand, tutoring up Draco and dealing 4 extra damage can be extremely relevant, possibly the difference between winning or losing the game. Hope that answers your question :)

There is no 2-drop thats comparable to a 4/4 flyer. The most played 2 drops in modern right now are: Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger , Dauthi Voidwalker , Tarmogoyf Snapcaster Mage , and that one chick who exiles cards. Boros Charm takes away a lot of backbone the deck holds when GFR isn't on the board as you're turning it from midrange to removal.deck. And it leaves a big hole in us getting stomped vs control in G1. Scion of Draco applies far more pressure than Boros Charm or any of the sideboard cards if that's our goal in G1 as it deals 4 dmg itself & makes it more difficult for the opponent to chomp block out other creatures. Going wide is irrelevant.

X3 Bloodbraid Elf and x4 Shardless Agent are already in the deck to increase the likelihood of us casting removal thru cascade along with card draw from Manamorphose & Territorial Kavu . This deck doesn't need 14+ pieces of removal like cause we have a far greater natural board presence due to GFR and access to monstrous 2-drops such as Scion of Draco and Territorial Kavu .

Boros Charm is far superior to Tribal Flames in this deck however it's another removal piece that only hits creatures which limits its flexibility to purely being aggressive or good vs creature decks. or I could use the double-strike but that requires going through the loop of having one of my creatures on board. It could be used as a sideboard piece but it honestly doesnt do anything against archetypes we would struggle against which would be control decks & aggro. I cant recall any 2 drop in modern that's superior to a 4/4 flyer with a board-boosting effect. And the boosting effect isnt a +1/+1 athnem so going wide is irrelevant. What he does is stop your opponents from chop blocking or trading blocks. Scion of Draco simply turns up the pressure far more than casting a single Boros Charm for 4mdg & removing creatures isnt a issue with having 10 cards of removal + card draw from our Manamorphose and Territorial Kavu .

For example, the most played 2 drops in modern as of right are: Dauthi Voidwalker , Sanctifier en-Vec , Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger , Kataki, War's Wage , and Snapcaster Mage . The most played beater of the 2-drops is the classic Tarmogoyf who needs 5+ different card types to surpass Scion of Draco in power & doesnt have flying. So I have no idea what 2-drop creature you would compare SoD to.

I gave Kolaghan's Command a thought but it's inferior to Prismari Command unless you like the return creature to hand choice that much.

I dont see the purpose of comparing Tribal Flames vs Scion of Draco .

Scion of Draco is a 2 drop 4/4 flyer which is EXTREMELY above curve if compared to other 4/4 flyers in MtG. It also improves the combat effectiveness of our creatures, giving General Ferrous Rokiric and his Golem tokens the vigilance you'd be seeking for along with giving them 1st strike. This is not mentioning how it'd give Bloodbraid Elf trample+1st strike, Shardless Agent with trample+hexproof, and Territorial Kavu with 1st strike+trample. Omnath, Locus of Creation will end up having vigilance+trample+hexproof+1st strike.

Tribal Flames is simply an upgraded lightning bolt but our lack of creatures would hurt us in grindy games where we need consistent threats. Tribal Flames is more for an aggro deck than midrange. Plus Tribal Flames is inferior to Abrupt Decay as it can only target creatures meanwhile Lightning Helix provides us with lifegain so we can sustain until we get our real gameplan going. Vindicate is to destroy anything that the earlier 2 cant defeat & then have access to more efficent removal such as Assassin's Trophy in those rare match-ups. Plus Tribal Flames does not trigger General Ferrous Rokiric so the only value it would provides is what's on the card.

I'm not sure I'd pick Scion of Draco over Tribal Flames - this feels like the kind of deck where reach really matters. That said, the deck feels light on 2 drops creatures otherwise. I'd feel better about it if it protected itself like Naya Hushblade . Something to be tinkered with.
