Hellkite Charger could replace Skanos Dragonheart? Both these Dragons want to attack to trigger abilities, but Skanos needs other Dragons to make it good, Charger doesn't. Skanos can't pump itself and doesn't have evasion, Charger can be part of a combo Skanos can't. Thrakkus the Butcher is a better five drop Dragon with trample who pumps itself as well as all other Dragons you control.

There's another combo you could add that creates infinite Dragons with Astral Dragon and the enabler Cursed Mirror provides a wincon, haste to attack. Could of course have other wincons: Scourge of Valkas, Dragon Tempest or Warstorm Surge. Mirror is a good card, you wouldn't just be adding it for the combo, it's a mana rock that if it becomes a Dragon when it enters then Miirym can copy it.

When you control Cursed Mirror that's not a creature have Astral Dragon enter and copy Mirror. The Mirror tokens then enter as Astral and copy original Mirror that's not a creature and repeat. This creates a loop of Astral and Mirror making copies of each other, each copy of Mirror is a 4/4 Astral Dragon with haste. To break the loop stop copying Mirror with Astral, copy something else.


Sarkhan Unbroken would be another fine upgrade, but not when on a budget. $25 for a nonDragon creature card when on a budget seems not a good use of funds. For $25 you could improve the manabase with many land upgrades Reflecting Pool, more Pain lands (Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef), some Bond lands (Spire Garden), some Filter lands (Flooded Grove) or some Check lands (Sulfur Falls, Rootbound Crag). In my opinion when on a budget allocating some of the budget for good lands is more important than adding flashy cards such as Sarkhan.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is less powerful than Sarkhan, but it's also less than $2. Kiora can still do much work as another Temur Ascendancy draw effect as well as give you 7 turns of ramp that can untap any permanent including Sol Ring or an Orb.

Shamanic Revelation could be a cut for some lower mana cost draw since you're more likely to have a higher power Dragon then that same number of Dragon creatures. That's what makes Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise good draw with Dragons is they have high power. Revelation is better when playing little tribal creatures such as Elves which tend to have quantity of creatures rather than single creature with high power.

I would suggest running shocklands in place of Cascade Bluffs (awkward to use, non-fetchable), Mountain (generally basic lands are for blood-moon protection. Mountain then becomes a redundant land), and Sulfur Falls _(non-fetchable, awkward etb requirements).

As a side, i think part of your problem is the quantity of lands you’re running. 23 (incl. Glasspool Mimic  Flip) feels really low for what you’re trying to do here, and 25 might instead serve you better.

This was an idea I wanted to try for a little while now; A tri-color checkland.


Mountain Fang Peak

Land

Mountain Fang Peak enters the battlefield tapped unless you control two or more lands of the following types: Island, Mountain or Plains.

: Add , or .


So, like Sulfur Falls, you need to control specific land types. But unlike Sulfur Falls, rather than just one land type, now you need two.

And if all you control is an Alpine Meadow, no Mountain Fang Peak will not ETB untapped. While you do have two subtypes, you need two different permanents. Alpine is just one permanent, ergo ETB tapped.


It bothered me that we have Jade Orb of Dragonkind as well as the blue and red ones, but not the white and black ones. I'd like to think that white would gain you life equal to that Dragon's power and black would have an opponent ̶d̶i̶s̶c̶a̶r̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶a̶r̶d̶ mill cards.


Quartz Orb of Dragonkind

Artifact

: Add . When you spend this mana to cast a Dragon spell, you gain life equal to its power when it enters the battlefield.


Onyx Orb of Dragonkind

Artifact

: Add . When you spend this mana to cast a Dragon spell, target opponent mills five cards.


Rineraz, the Covetous

Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon

Flying, Ward X where X is the number of nontoken artifacts you control.

Rineraz, the Covetous can only be cast by mana produced by artifact sources you control.

When Rineraz, the Covetous enters the battlefield, gain control of target artifact each opponent controls until Rineraz leaves the battlefield or you lose control of him. Untap those artifacts, they gain haste until end of turn. If you lose control of Rineraz, the player who gained control of him also gains control of all artifacts you control but do not own.

8/8

(He is an 8/8 because I recognize not only how difficult it will be to cast him only using artifacts, but that it will become increasingly more difficult with commander tax - and a simple bounce or artifact wrath shuts him down, entirely.)


Are there any "unfinished sets" or other ideas that have bothered you, that should have been finished or changed? If so, here's your chance to correct / amend it or them.

TypicalTimmy on DragonForce - Through the Fire and Flames

I just resolved a Turn 5 win thanks to the Godhand of Ancient Tomb, Mana Crypt and Simic Signet all in the opening. Got Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm on the battlefield T3, after I dropped a Sulfur Falls on T2 and played Temur Ascendancy. Got Garruk's Uprising and Mirrym out T3. T4 I landed a Dragonborn Champion and drew an insane amount of cards between 2x ETB effects for Temur Ascendancy and Garruk's Uprising, as well as the 2x 5+ damage trigger when Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm connected.

Turn 5, I got Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient in play and, with haste, swung for 28 total damage power between those two and my Commander. Each Klauth drew me 1 card for Ascendancy and Uprising, or 4 cards in total. Then, when Miirym connected, I drew an additional 2 cards, one for each Dragonborn Champion.

I tapped my remaining two sources of mana and floated 30 in my post-combat main phase since Klauth doesn't have mana empty as steps and phases end.

With 30 mana and a stupid amount of cards, I cast and resolved (since Temur Ascendancy makes my creature spells unable to be countered), Adrix and Nev, Twincasters.

From here, Terror of the Peaks, after a Flameshadow Conjuring. What ended up happening is the OG Peaks ETB and Miirym makes a token. Twincasters doubles this. With all of my draw and damage on the stack awaiting to resolve, I put Flameshadow Conjuring on the stack, making a token copy of the OG Peaks, that Twincaster then doubled - again.

So, the last two Terror of the Peaks each draw a card for Garruk's Uprising and Temur Ascendancy. That is 4 cards in total.

Next up, these two Terror of the Peaks see each other ETB, and deal damage equal to the other's power to any target. That is 5 damage that Token A deals because it sees Token B, and 5 damage that Token B deals, because it sees Token A.

Well... 5 or more damage was dealt. So, Dragonborn Champion now draws a card for both Token A and Token B. But then, the Dragonborn Champion TOKEN also draws a card. So, 4 cards in total.

Now we move to resolve OG Terror as well as Token 1 and Token 2 that Twincaster made.

All 3 of these saw the Token A and Token B ETB. So, each of these 3 are doing to deal 5 damage for Token A, as well as 5 damage for Token B.

That's another 2 draws each. So OG Dragonborn Champion sees OG Terror of the Peaks deal damage, Token 1 and Token 2 deal damage. Each, for Token A and Token B. That is a grand total of 5 draws.

But then recall, Dragonborn Champion token also sees all of this, so 5 more draws.

But my friends, it gets so much worse. Because since OG, Token 1 and Token 2 all ETB at the same time, they will all see each other, as well. So OG deals damage thanks to T1 and T2. T1 deals damage thanks to OG as well as T2. And lastly T2 deals damage for OG and T1.

And yes, more draws for Dragonborn Champion, as well as Temur Ascendancy and Garruk's Uprising.

Now that I have 46 total cards in hand, I still have something like 16 mana left. So I cast Scourge of Valkas and aim to copy the OG with Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm, Adrix and Nev, Twincasters and Flameshadow Conjuring.

At this point, there's no need to get into the insane amount of draw anymore because I can stack it such that the Valkus mirrors close out the game, if the five Terror of the Peaks didn't already.


Yup, guys I have a new favorite deck.

multimedia on Pirates a'hoyyyyyyy

Hey, nice version, but where's Glint-Horn Buccaneer? I saw your deck in the featured decks ad.

You can improve on balancing card quality since you have some amazing cards here, but also quite a few lackluster ones that are much lower on power level compared to the others. An example is Scalding Tarn which is excellent, but not playing a dual land that Tarn can search for... Steam Vents could replace Izzet Guildgate and Volatile Fjord could replace Highland Lake. Other Izzet dual lands to add in place of some basic lands to improve color fixing from lands: Training Center, Cascade Bluffs, Sulfur Falls, Stormcarved Coast and Frostboil Snarl.

I don't think I've even seen Armillary Sphere in the same deck before that also has Mana Drain, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Jeweled Lotus, Dockside Extortionist, Goldspan Dragon, Jeska's Will and Urza's Saga. Sphere is really out of place power wise. Consider cutting Sphere for Arcane Signet? The Diamonds are also subpar, considering cutting both of them for Talisman of Creativity and Izzet Signet? These are not expensive changes, but can make a big improvements on ramp.

Another example of card quality balance are the counterspells. Mana Drain, Counterspell, Pact of Negation, Negate are great thus you don't also need to play Hornswoggle, Admiral's Order and even Lookout's Dispersal because these are not as good.


Some more one drop/two drop flying Pirates and unblockable Pirates can more easily trigger Malcolm and Breeches. Spectral Sailor, Warkite Marauder, Departed Deckhand could replace some higher mana cost Pirates such as Captain Ripley Vance, Deadeye Quartermaster, Prosperous Pirates and Sailor of Means. You have Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Dockside Extortionist, Goldspan Dragon and Corsair Captain which are all excellent thus you don't really need to play other Pirates that create treasures when they ETB because those cards are not as good.

Wonder and Anger are powerful with Pirates, but they need help to get them into your graveyard because you don't want to ever cast them. Expanding with more loot can help to draw/discard them that also adds more draw to your deck. Faithless Looting, Windfall, Mask of Memory and Frantic Search could replace Mutiny, Hornswoggle, Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Admiral's Order. These changes are also not expensive and improve card quality.

Good luck with your deck.

Something like Swiftwater Cliffs would be better than Izzet Guildgate if you’re going to stick with a tap land. Otherwise, something like Sulfur Falls isn’t too pricey and is an upgrade to consider.
