lagotripha So this is my sole paper EDH deck; it started with Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip being really strong with Inferno of the Star Mounts in Historic Brawl on Arena: a dependable T4 kill. I put Birgi at the helm because the back side is a nice option and I didn't want the temptation to buy Boros lands, but playtesting it on MTGO for a while it turned out that she sat in the command zone more than not as I went off with Thrumming Stone, which usually works but struggles to finish if they have artifact removal. Syr Carah, the Bold seems to get a lot of hate so I hide her in the 99. I ran into Daretti while tuning and realized he has perfect synergy with what I needed; I think this is finally finished but I am still on the fence about Dragon's Rage Channeler, and 32 Approach wasn't that bad really. To be honest I haven't tested in paper ever, and since cashing out on MTGO I have removed four 2 cmc loot spells and added in ZNR spell lands, Goblin Engineer, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Temporal Aperture, Memory Jar, and Thawing Glaciers.

For a purely casual burn deck, I really love running Syr Carah, the Bold for some card advantage. She plays really nice with Rift Bolt because you will be untapping when rifty-B does it's damage. And this is just me, but I like Needle Drop

Uggh, this makes me want to dust off my burn some draw some Izzet deck. Thanks!

Great list!

Syr Carah, the Bold would be a useful draw option. Treasonous Ogre is perfect ramp, and even helps you enable a Hidetsugu kill.

Have you considered swapping Syr Carah, the Bold as the general? Access to her with the stone potentially changes the odds from 1 in 4 to 1 in 7 cards. This would dramatically lower the demand of approaches needed

I'd like to add to my ideas:

The Prosper build would really benefit from Toshiro Umezawa and especially Syr Carah, the Bold.

Finally, I have no idea if there's a commander that could even do it, but a GX version of Mishra, Artificer Prodigy around cards like Wild Pair and Panglacial Wurm would be pretty wild. Does anyone have an idea for a commander for that?

Might I suggest Syr Carah, the Bold? She's an easy impulse draw even with the potential for more than one trigger per turn. Also, Uba Mask is great with Prosper.

fuhby on PDH(R) - Syr Carah the Bold

Yeah, you're probably right and two focused decks are better than one that is unfocused. However, if you build the deck with Dragon's Approach as a regular EDH deck Pyromancer Ascension and maybe Harness the Storm might do some work, maybe even without dragons.

Your Zirilan Deck looks super fun as well, maybe I get a hand on one someday, but for now I'll go with the cheaper Lathliss, Dragon Queen as commander. But since this is a Syr Carah, the Bold PDH deck I think we should focus on that and not on dragons. ;)
