Guerric on [Primer] Casting the Mythal: An Inalla Guide

I'm glad you're still enjoying the deck! Its definitely my first and favorite still. I also share your love of Haunting Voyage, one of the greatest gifts to tribal strategies in recent sets. Its one of the all-stars of my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck, because there is nothing like using Scion's ability to fill the graveyard with whatever dragons I want, and then re-animating them en masse! It's also a great fallback card in my Trynn and Silvar deck and I should probably put it in Yuriko as well. I'm not sure if I can fit it in Inalla, but I'll definitely think about it and keep it in mind!


The best card in recent sets was absolutely Pyre of Heroes. Despite several sets featuring wizards recently (such as Strixhaven), there really haven't been any cards that have synergized with Inalla enough to make it. I definitely watch out for it every set though, so keep posted! (I haven't looked at Crimson Vow much yet)

Zmanz710 Flavor and I think it's more reliable. Sure Drakuseth has more upside of swinging and sticking around multiple turns but Atarka has the guaranteed damage when it ETBs and doesn't require any swinging. Obviously with wanting haste in the deck, Drakuseth would also be better but it's not something you can always rely on having. And yes that's another good point with Teneb and Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Basically an Entomb for whichever Dragon you want and then can reanimate back.

Willen Not sure if this is what he was going for but I run Teneb, the Harvester because it works wonders with Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Commander_JAR on Cruel Sumer: Tiamat Dragonstorm

Ah! A fellow dragon fan of culture! I too have attempted to build Tiamat with Dragonstorm.

Unfortunately I accidentally discovered that Tiamat works VERY well with Food Chain. I kept Dragonstorm in my deck but it's no long to be build around.

Since Food Chain is a freakin expensive card....might I recommend running Ramos, Dragon Engine, Morophon, the Boundless, and Scion of the Ur-Dragon.

When you cast Tiamat AND have Dragonstorm in your hand, you can search for the 3 dragons I mentioned, perhaps run a Fist of Suns to synergize with Morophon....and find a way to cast the 3 dragons.

Specifically have Morophon, the Boundless on the field first. Then with Ramos on the field, cast Scion for free. Ramos gets 5 counters...which you can use to cast Dragonstorm. It's complicated but it works...for the most part.

In fact, with Tiamat in my Ur-Dragon deck, I would tutor for Ramos, Dragon Engine, Scion of the Ur-Dragon,Morophon, the Boundless (and two other dragons) play the changeling, then dragon engine, then scion to give Ramos its counters

How is Dragon Arch even a card?! Haha, how amazing.

Great list! Would Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient be a more effective replacement for Savage Ventmaw ? I can't even believe I'm suggesting it - never thought I'd see the day Ventmaw was upstaged.

A friend of mine suggested Primevals' Glorious Rebirth for my own Ur-Dragon deck, and it looks like you have about 13 reasons to potentially include it as well, especially with Scion of the Ur-Dragon in play.

And I'm not sure it make sense with your build, but Minion of the Mighty is really fun.

Again, great list! Gave me some ideas for my own deck.

Hey, you're welcome.

Draconic Rage Upgraded to Scion (Budget) is a budget example I made of taking the Draconic Rage precon and adapting it to play five colors with Scion of the Ur-Dragon as Commander instead. Scion is not Ur-Dragon, but he's also a five color Dragon who cares about Dragons and he's not $40.00. The budget manabase in my version is built around a package of land ramp spells: Farseek , Nature's Lore , Three Visits , Into the North , Wood Elves and Skyshroud Claim that can search for a Tango land or Snow dual land to help with color fixing.

To further help with color fixing on a budget I've also included several 2 CMC mana sources that can make any color of mana: Arcane Signet , Paradise Druid , Ornithopter of Paradise and Fertile Ground . Because of the low budget I've dedicated quite a lot of deck spots to ramp, but I feel I need to do this for the deck to function with five colors. Low CMC ramp is what I want to be consistently casting in the early game to have mana for Dragons or Scion activations for the mid and late game.
