Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Discussion

Moltensteel Dragon is an artifact, and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon was from Scars of Mirrodin which is an artifact heavy block, so there's that.

When you say "artifact sub theme", can you provide a little more clarity on that? Do you want graveyard artifact combo? Big artifact creatures? Stax? Know this will greatly help streamline suggestions from people.

Thanks for your suggestions! I somehow missed Phyrexian Swarmlord when I was looking at topend threats, and it's extremely interesting. I think I might add it as a on-off, reason being that I really like Phyrexian Hydra because of all the ways we can it unblockable. Thats the reason I took the hydra over Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Skittles as well- we don't need to pay the extra mana for evasion since we have so many ways to do it ourself, so better to spend the mana on raw P/T. Thanks for the suggestion of Viridian Corrupter , that'll do nicely in the side (:. If you have any other suggestions for sideboard I'd be glad to hear them, I'm pretty out of date with new sets and the current modern meta.

I know Phyrexian Swarmlord is 6 cmc, but I think it might be better than Phyrexian Hydra . It synergizes great with both of Hand of the Praetors 's abilities and also works well with Driven / Despair .

Also there's Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , the cool infect creature no one uses outside of EDH. This might be the one good modern deck for it.

I also see you don't have a sideboard yet. Viridian Corrupter should be good there.

Unlife on State of Mono-Colored Decks in …

3 weeks ago

Personal experience within my own playgroup? Mono-colored decks, any of them, can all be built very well even outside of cEDH. But, it may take some time to tune and refine them to that point. I've got Omnath, Locus of Mana , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Radiant, Archangel , Thada Adel, Acquisitor , and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , and they all play well with a variety of card draw, removal, ramp, etc. But, one of the best decks I play against is a God-Eternal Oketra deck. It can turn out an army of creatures incredibly quickly, almost always has a few cards in hands plus a nice suite of removal. I think that like any other EDH deck, mono-colored decks can almost always be adjusted and optimized and fiddled with to get a great end result, but it just take the time of playing with the deck to figure out what you need.

Ok so firstly, you're sitting at 101 cards so you'll need to cut something. Personally I would drop Territorial Hellkite as I don't find it that exceptional for its cmc, and the drawbacks that you can't 100% control who it targets for attacks.

Personally, there are just some differences in dragon choices. I would include Skittles ( Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon ), Terror of the Peaks (It's in your description, but not on your list), and Leyline Tyrant just thinking about it.

Also I would consider running some mana rocks like Arcane Signet or Chromatic Lantern , and maybe Sarkhan, Fireblood .

I would put your power level as probably a 5 or so, as your first few turns are going to be really uneventful since you don't have much in the way of low CMC spells (perfectly fine for a battlecruiser meta, but if you want spice out of the gate, it will take some retooling). In terms of interaction, I would run some more spot removal using black for some cheap and effective kill spells.

Here is some cards that i think are must have: Insidious Dreams , It That Betrays , Emrakul, the Promised End , Void Winnower , Krosan Cloudscraper , Consuming Aberration , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , Frantic Search , Lim-Dul's Vault , Putrefax , Dark Ritual , Bane of Progress , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (great alternative wincon with Lord of Extinction [that is one instainclude too]), Toxic Deluge , Fathom Mage , Cavern of Souls , Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Alchemist's Refuge , Pernicious Deed , Phyrexian Dreadnought , Hermit Druid , Rise of the Dark Realms , Reanimate . Those are of the hat that come to mind first when thinking whats missing here. Eldrazis are mainly for counters, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Putrefax are for swinging and Fathom Mage (another zegana) and Bane of Progress are for utility. Also you are in promised land of green ramp so i would take out heavy mana cost artifact ramps and change them to Mana Crypt and green ramp like Birds of Paradise and other 1 mana dorks. And if you want to dig for lands, Nature's Lore and Three Visits are just better Farseek s. Search for Tomorrow is also great. As enchantment ramp i would suggest Exploration , Burgeoning , Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl . I'm more than glad to answer if you have questions.
