Terror of the Peaks

Creature — Dragon

Spells your opponents cast that target Terror of the Peaks cost an additional 3 life to cast.

Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, Terror of the Peaks deals damage equal to that creature's power to target creature, player or planeswalker.

Thank you for your great feedback! It's always appreciated. I did consider Eerie Ultimatum when it was previewed during Ikoria spoiler season. I eventually decided to leave it out of the 99 due to its tricky mana cost in a 5-color deck and, more persuasively, the fact that a suite of mass recursion spells already existed in the deck, like Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding and Rise of the Dark Realms. These spells, of course, return creatures to the battlefield, which Eerie Ultimatum does as well. However, with just 12 other non-land, non-creature permanents in the current 99 of this build, Eerie Ultimatum did not seem valuable enough to squeeze into the deck, and that is considering the potential mana ramp of recurring multiple fetch lands to the battlefield as well (no landfall triggers).

Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm's inclusion into this deck is inevitable. The moment a copy of her becomes available she will become a part of this deck and make it so much stronger. The same can be said for Ancient Copper Dragon, Ancient Silver Dragon and Ancient Gold Dragon. Moltensteel Dragon's presence in this deck is to combo with Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon or Dragon Tyrant for the purposes of one-shotting an opponent, usually a control player or blue mage at the table. Panharmonicon is an interesting card to consider. By my count, in the current 99 of this build, there are four Dragons (Bladewing the Risen, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Scourge of Valkas, Terror of the Peaks), three enchantments (Garruk's Uprising, Dragon Tempest, Temur Ascendancy) and one artifact (Dragon's Hoard) that could benefit from the inclusion of Panharmonicon. That is a total of eight cards from the 99 (8.08%). That does not seem like a high enough percentage of cards to reconcile adding Panharmonicon to the deck. Yarok, the Desecrated would not approve.

Thank you for your comments and your recommendations! I appreciate them and am looking forward to upgrading this deck with several new cards from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate!

What a nicely written Baldur's Gate Update MattN7498!!

When Wrathful Red Dragon got spoiled i also knew right from the start this is gonna be a staple in Dragon Tribal Decks, period. Same goes for Thrakkus the Butcher. Doubling the attackpower of every Dragon you control? Insane. Giving them trample via Garruk's Uprising for example and double strike via Atarka, World Render or a quick The Ur-Dragon trigger into Sylvia Brightspear in addition and we look at a pretty effective Overrun.

I think we still don't quite get how powerful Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm will be in this deck, it's gonna be almost hilarious. Double Terror of the Peaks and Scourge of Valkas triggers are going to make me smile, haha.

I switched Crux of Fate (i know, i know..) for Blasphemous Act as my Playgroup tends to steal my cards, so they use Crux of Fate to wipe the board with all my dragons or i can't wipe their board as they control MY dragons. With Blasphemous Act i make sure everything dies and comes back to MY graveyard, it also serves as a finisher with Blasphemous Act + Wrathful Red Dragon , shoot x times 13 Damage at non-Dragon targets, including life totals, where x is the number of Dragons you control. With Blasphemous Act you also have yet another way to get your Dragons into the Graveyard for mass reanimation spells like Patriarch's Bidding, Living Death, Haunting Voyage or Twilight's Call.

By the way I really like Twilight's Call as you can play it at instant speed which can be a game changer for example when someone tries to exile our graveyard. More often then not did the Foretell mechanic of Haunting Voyage hindered me by ONE turn to win the game and made me loose, which is why i changed it to Twilight's Call.

I wish cards like Old Gnawbone and Ancient Copper Dragon wouldn't be as expensive as they are, as they would also be a fine addition for my The Ur-Dragon Deck, for obvious reasons.

In general, you were a HUGE inspiration for my own iteration of an The Ur-Dragon Deck and i always come back to your Primer when i need some advice or thoughts on cards. So thank you for the write-up!

Some day I would love to show you my The Ur-Dragon Deck, as i would very much appreciate to hear your thoughts on some of my card picks! (I still need to post it on tappedout..)

Cheers!

I accidently removed a comment asking why get rid of Terror of the Peaks. I wanted to put in Scourge of Valkas to make the Ancient Gold Dragon + Dragon Tempest combo tutorable. And Scourge still works with the Bladewing the Risen + Moritte of the Frost combo, so it seemed like a good substitution. Their effect is similar but Scourge does more with the other cards in the deck.

I think it would be good to change the definition of "blink" to a slightly more generalised "ETB matters". This makes allowances for cards Purphoros, God of the Forge or Terror of the Peaks (as well as many others) where the focus of the deck is to trigger a bunch of ETB effects, generally to win the game but also as the main mechanic of a deck to generate value.

I understand that for cards like Brago, King Eternal this might slightly dilute what the deck is trying to achieve (as this is a true blink deck such that the primary combo in the deck doesn't care about ETB triggers and more just uses it as an untap effect), however it allows decks which heavily rely on the ETB mechanic to tag it as such, even if they don't blink the cards.

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.

This deck is absolutely bonkers. I just finished another playtest (not against any players; Just testing to find themes, synergies, combos, curves, etc) and ended Turn 7 with the following:

Along with (according to the screenshot) 58 cards in hand.

I "ended" the turn when I ran out of mana, lolol

To Elasar99,

Thanks for the comment! Honeslty, Goblin Bombardment+Requiem Angel is a viable combo that could fit into this deck. To be trustful, I didn't add this combo because it just didn't interest me. As well, I feel like Requiem Angel needs a sacrifice outlet to be worth it. I do have Evolutionary Leap, but this deck doesn't have any other scarfice outlet. Let's compare Dragon Broodmother. Brood isn't a combo piece like Requiem Angel. However, Broodmother gets out of hand, without supporting cards, if left alone. Maybe a better comparison would be Terror of the Peaks. Both Terror and Requiem will just sit there without support. However, the support Terror needs is much easier to access, creatures entering the battlefield. Again, it's not a bad combo. I'm just not a fan.

Hey there thenewlollipopjam, thanks for your questions.

In my latest update I wrote about most new treasure cards from New Capenna, including Rain of Riches. I am pretty split on that one. You can check my thoughts on all those cards there.

I’ve been asked about Galazeth Prismari before. It’s a cool card that does fit in the deck, but at the end of the day it’s basically half an Inspiring Statuary in this list (which is also a Magda, Brazen Outlaw target). Urza is another better card that does a similar thing. And since both of those cards are better in tapping our treasure for mana, I did not include Galazeth as a third worse option for that effect.

Seize the Spotlight is not a card that really excites me. At best it gives you 3 treasure, which does not compete with most of the other treasure makers in this list. I also have 0 synergies with the steal side of the card (for example, sacrifice outlets to sac the stolen creatures after swinging with them). So I don’t see enough synergy to include it here.

Same is true for Terror of the Peaks. I run only 19 creatures and 0 creature token makers in this list. So Terror of the peaks is just going to sit there on the battlefield and be pretty most of the time. There isn’t enough synergy here to warrant an include.

Hope these thoughts make sense. Again, thanks for reaching out!
