Decidares on Return Of The Ur-Dragon: A Budget Dragon Primer

1 week ago

Thanks so much for the positive feedback, JRaynor! I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying your time with The Ur-Dragon.

One of the next things I need to do is get upgrade the land base, but it's a relatively big investment for me and this deck which I am trying to keep at least somewhat budget friendly. To this end, I am considering a compromise by only adding the green shock lands (Breeding Pool, Overgrown Tomb, Stomping Ground, Temple Garden) and subbing out some basic land ramp for forest ramp spells (e.g. Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim).

Let me know if anything, and happy hunting!

Hm not a perfect replacement, but Path to Exile is good for removal and can be used to ramp off of exiling a token. Feline Sovereign could be a more budget alternative (not yet released).

PS: Id run a land split more along the lines of 6 forests 12 plains, you could even cut a Stirring Wildwood or a Temple Garden for a plains if you want to be more budget.

multimedia on I'm Mr. Marisi, Look at me!

Hey, you don't have 100 cards, don't need to make cuts just yet ;)

Your deck is missing Marisi as Commander. In the deck editor add the CMDR tag after Marisi text.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil *CMDR*

Doing this will make Marisi the official Commander and show the card image.

Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Eladamri's Call are some staple cards within the budget here.

Goblin Spymaster is another repeatable way to give your opponents creatures. Bedlam makes it so your opponents kill each other with unblockable creatures since they're not going to be attacking you. Mass Hysteria gives all creatures haste. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser and Agitator Ant can be repeatable goad.

The shadow ability is good with Marisi since opponents are not going to have creatures with shadow thus shadow creatures will consistently do combat damage to a player and trigger Marisi.

More flying creatures will also consistently do combat damage to a player to trigger Marisi.

Land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Nice build. You have the Utopia Sprawls, which somewhat mitigates what I’m about to suggest, but I think an adjustment to the mana base could help improve consistency.

Depending on the budget you’ve assigned to this deck, either Windswept Heath or Temple Garden would be ideal. If not, then maybe a simple ETB:Tapped+bonus dual land like Blossoming Sands would work. Whichever you prefer, you’d simply remove 4 basic lands to slot them in. Either way, you’re just an inch closer to always having exactly the mana you need on the turn you need it.
