Scion of the Ur-Dragon Discussion

Commander_JAR on Cruel Sumer: Tiamat Dragonstorm

2 weeks ago

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.

Thanks Ravenrose! Dragons are just SO GOOD. I love them.

Where Ancients Tread is a really amazing enchantment. I think I have it in three of my decks! Though it would do well in here, I don't want to include it in all my stompy decks, lest it become a staple (I've got a thing against auto-includes LOL). Wild Pair on the other hand would be even better! So many dragons are 4/4, so it fits really well. I don't anticipate it remaining on the board long, but hot dang is it going in the deck.

I took out Bladewing the Risen for some lesser dragon and felt bad about it, so he may go back in. Lathliss, Dragon Queen is also a great suggestion. She'll have to watch her butt calling herself "queen" when Tiamat is on the field though.

I really do like Primevals' Glorious Rebirth - especially with Scion of the Ur-Dragon in play, trashing all my legendaries.

Thanks a lot for all the tips! Much appreciated!

Thanks so much for you kind words betomindslav! Cover of Darkness used to be in my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck, but it was too flavorful not to go in ninjas. Solve the Equation is a great tutor that I've slowly been slipping into most of my blue decks. I'm surprised more people aren't running it. I might slide it in here if I can. Bolas's Citadel is mostly a pet card here- it's certainly not essential to ninjas or anything. That being said, it does work well at what ot does, and I have had it work out where I can abuse the heck out of it the turn its played and put a bunch of ninjas on the board so that I could win by swinging with then the following turn. Its a fun card that always makes memories for better or worse, but is by no means essential to the deck.

Building a Scion of the Ur-Dragon reanimator deck but I wanna do an artifact sub theme. That being said I'm reaching out for ideas and hopefully deck lists for some ideas.

I would like to get a few months head start and lobby Tiamat for "Fringe Competitive." LOL

Seriously though,in a deck that's fast in ramp and mana fixing, her tutoring for key dragons can definitely result in a win. Not as consistent as say Scion of the Ur-Dragon but far more potential than The Ur-Dragon .
