- Sneak Attack/Sundial of the Infinite interaction question
- If I cheat in a creature with Sneak Attack, can I copy it with Riku and have the copy not leave the battlefield at end of turn?
- Do I have a window of time to destroy Shivan Phoenix in the graveyard before it returns?
- sneak attack, sigarda and harmless offering
: You may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. That creature gains haste. Sacrifice the creature at the beginning of the next end step.
Sneak Attack Discussion

You might be right about switching to Scion of the Ur-Dragon for a more competitive build, however, I can't do that since I want The Ur-Dragon as a commander so I want to include as many on-theme powerful spells and interactions as possible. Sure it won't be as powerful but might be enough at 80-90%.
As for card draw I'd love to see more cards like Harmonize but with 2-3 CMC because I could just add Hunter's Insight or Rishkar's Expertise but they're reliant on you having a boardstate (or at least that 1 creature with power 4+) and this particular strategy needs mostly early card advantage to start.
And as our discussion went more towards the playstyle and core of the deck... Maybe we should become more graveyard-reliant to get huge amounts of Dragons into play? Like with Kokusho, the Evening Star + Sneak Attack or something like that? That still means we ramp and cast them "the fair way" but we are more prepared to shift gears into more powerful plays depending on the playgroup power level :)

I would highly recommend using Torbran, Thane of Red Fell over this legend. Though she can give you a lot of cards, it's not permanent. I'd also consider adding enchantments like Circle of Flame and Rite of the Raging Storm to discourage people from attacking you. I also just think that there isn't a lot of cheap red cards which can really win you the game outside of Sneak Attack into some crazy combo.
Either way, seems like an interesting deck with maybe some storm potential. Good luck!

I like the deck so far, the birthing pod line is very efficient and I will probably play test it in my list. Currently I think the biggest issue in the deck is speed which comes down to two things, ramp and redundancy.
First off is ramp, I would highly recommend running Dryad Arbor as it is absolutely insane in the right setup. First off at its worst its a summoning sick land, at its best its a turn one ramp spell off Green Sun's Zenith . It has insane synergy with Natural Order , Eldritch Evolution , etc. Additionally you could consider some fast single turn ramp with cards like Lotus Petal , Elvish Spirit Guide , Simian Spirit Guide , Rite of Flame , Seething Song With the spirit guides you also have the added benefit of being able to Survival of the Fittest / Fauna Shaman them for your combo pieces.
Now onto redundancy, especially with different typing. First off I think you could use redundant sac outlets, the best of which would be Thermopod who is a creature tutorable Phyrexian Altar (only for red) which doesn't seem all that good but just the creature typing and mana ability makes him worth it, especially with Lesser Masticore who at least in my build is by far the most efficient way to win. Cards like Thunderblust Protein Hulk also help redundancy but aren't fully necessary due to their inefficiency but can be pretty good with Sneak Attack and Elvish Piper . I also would highly recommend Ashnod's Altar as an additional sac outlet.
A few minor issues I had play testing this deck: Frequently getting mana screwed when trying to use Blood Moon effects. They are insanely good stax effects if dropped early, however you would probably need to drop some utility lands to use them efficiently.
Goblin Engineer lacking an artifact to sacrifice. This is an issue I had in my deck as well and hasn't gotten better and 6 artifacts just isn't enough to consistently use it.
Not having a wincon with Greater Good . This one is easily remedied yet again by adding fast mana. the issue is that drawing your deck off greater good does not always yield enough mana to play an actual wincon such as Goblin Bombardment . This issue happens when Mana Crypt is already in play.
Overall a very good shell but it just needs to increase the speed or go deeper into stax to really create value out of the combo. Hope this helped a bit.

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a wonder for you, a way to lower your life total, sac creatures to draw cards and a way to proliferate

Something to think about
- Angrath's Rampage : I 4 mans commander udvikler boardet sig meget, hvilket vil betyde at dette kort vil blive et dødt kort i hånden, brug din Kolaghan's Command eller Terminate i stedet.
- RAMP! Hvis du har et dyrt deck i mana er ramp og/eller mana rocks et must. I 4 mans commander er det oftest det bedste valg at rampe i starten - der er tid til det, da Vi spiller casual og ikke competitive. Kig efter 2 cmc mana rocks, da 3 cmc rocks er for langsomme ( Chromatic Lantern og Dragon's Hoard er dog gode). Umiddelbart mener jeg at finger reglen er at man kan erstatte 1 land med 2 mana rocks. Overvej også Kodama's Reach og Cultivate .
- Sneak Attack : Rigtigt stærkt kort med dyre creatures! Den er rigtig besværlig at spille imod. Hvis du har nok draw i forvejen, så er den næsten et must include.
- Lidt mere draw. Du kan erstatte nogle af dine lande med draw cards (måske noget graveyard retrieval?), e.g.: Rhystic Study , Mystic Remora , Ponder , Preordain , Soul Manipulation , Search for Azcanta Flip...

I like the deck very flavorful. Have you thought about adding Cavern of Souls it's a bit on the pricey side but ensures your dragons stick. Additionally, something like Quicksilver Amulet and maybe Sneak Attack to pump out a kill at someone that's made you made all game =)

Skydaddy I've never heard of Mafegor actually, but that also means I've never really seen him used yet. Look pretty interesting though!
As for Torment of Hailfire, I've been testing with Kokusho, the Evening Star in that slot instead. Not sure if this deck can sustain a Kokusho loop for very long, especially with only 1 sac outlet, but I want to test out the dragon a bit more with Sneak Attack before I revert any changes. Hailfire was honestly getting pretty boring to resolve, but it's still highly effective and useful to have around. Might come back in, especially with Vedalken Orrery in the list. Cheers, and I'm glad you're liking the changes! =]
