Smoldering Egg

Creature — Dragon Egg


Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, put a number of ember counters on this creature equal to the amount of mana spent to cast that spell. Then if there are seven or more ember counters on this creature, remove them and transform this.

Risk Factor maybe? Urabrask  Flip, Electrostatic Infantry, Smoldering Egg  Flip for more creature options maybe. I don't play EDH nor do I have a deck for it so I don't know what type of cards work better in this format so you can ignore me if you want lol. My playgroup has been thinking about it but we just play Modern.

This looks highly entertaining. A few dragons you might consider adding:

Smoldering Egg  Flip - can ping creatures/planeswalkers, and is approachable.

Leyline Tyrant - not losing unspent mana is amazing, period.

Deathbringer Regent - if you have trouble with creatures and need an easily tutored boardwipe.

happy pinging!

Also take a look at some of the lower-cost dragons, like Sprite Dragon or Smoldering Egg  Flip.

Random ideas. Against grave hate side into some spell slinger cards like Smoldering Egg  Flip Guttersnipe

Some comments:

You have nowhere near enough lands, especially considering that you cut all your mana dorks. I'd go up to at least 21, probably 22.

Smoldering Egg  Flip is somewhat of a problem. You have Manamorphose to trigger it which is nice, but its a terrible card everywhere else. Weather the Storm will only trigger Egg once, because copies placed directly on the stack with storm do not count as being "cast". Sarkhan's Triumph is an overpriced tutor, and definitely not worth it since you don't really have a toolbox of dragons anyways.

If you decide to go this spellslinger dragons route (which sounds really cool, just difficult to pull off: I still really hope you go in this direction because it's a lot more unique) I would suggest adding the following dragons. Moonveil Regent draws you a lot of cards, and lets you keep finding gas to flip Smoldering Egg and then consistently trigger it. Plus it turns Manamorphose into free Ancestral Recall. Manaform Hellkite churns out a bunch of small hasty tokens and is more payoff from Manamorphose. Thunderbreak Regent is just a great dragon all around that I recommend you add even if you don't go the spellslinger route. Even if it gets removed you still hit them in the face.

Of course, we can't have too many dragons if you want to go this route, so I'd completely cut Dromoka and Lathliss. Both Leyline Tyrant and Terror of the Peaks are pretty good with the dragons I suggested. Leyline Tyrant + Moonveil Regent means you can collect a huge amount of red mana and keep slapping down spells. Terror of the Peaks + Manaform Hellkite means all your dragon tokens coming down either remove creatures or burn face. Between the two, I'd cut Leyline Tyrant first.

Lastly, we need a lot of instants and sorceries. Playests of Manamorphose, Bolt, and Ending are definitely a given. However, Draconic Roar seems pretty mediocre. Honestly, I can't think of many good instants and sorceries in naya colors for a midrange deck, so this would probably be the toughest part of building it. You could possibly drop white for blue and go the Murktide Route as suggested above.

Yeah, standard is rough right now! Glad to see people aren't all just playing Alrund's Epiphany+Smoldering Egg  Flip though ;)

Latest update gets rid of Arbor Elf and Fertile Ground and introduces Terror of the Peaks, and Lathliss, Dragon Queen as well as Sarkhan's Triumph. The deck is much better at limiting opponents via Blood Moon, and fueling your dragons -- whether that means transforming Smoldering Egg  Flip, or stacking mana from Leyline Tyrant or Sarkhan, Fireblood.

could be very powerful as well so you have better access to card advantage by having access to Consider and Faithful Mending which would help fuel Smoldering Egg  Flip to go along with Dragon's Rage Channeler, Unholy Heat, and Murktide Regent. Unless you wish to go the ramp route of Arbor Elf+Utopia Sprawl, doesnt offer your strategy anything.

BTW Icingdeath, Frost Tyrant is a halfway decent 4cmc dragon to think about.
