Terror of the Peaks

You don't have the dragons for Zirilans' best lines though. On a turn where you have Zirilan available, pass. Tutor a dragon in the end step of the player before you, so it will be in play during your turn. Get either Terror of the Peaks or Scourge of Valkas. On your own turn, tutor Utvara Hellkite. Trigger scourge or terror, deal damage.

Ideally then you want to copy Utvara Hellkite with Molten Duplication, Heat Shimmer, Twinflame, or Cursed Mirror. If you do, you get more attackers AND double the tokens. It's even better if you had a 4-cost dragon before putting out Zirilan.

Then attack with all your dragons. In the ideal case, you create 8 tokens (4 attacking dragons x2 utvara hellkites) Trigger scourge of valkas or Terror of the peaks for each token. For additional triggers, play Dragon Tempest. This will often kill everyone at the table, and leave you with 8x 6/6 dragons (48 power) if they are not dead.

Suppose Scourge of Valkas was your second dragon after some random 4 cost dragon. Its triggers deal 2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12=77 damage from the triggers alone and you are attacking for 4+4+6+6 = 20. So that's 97 damage on turn 6, consistently.

Orthion, Hero of Lavabrink could be really fun in this deck. He can be both a source of token creatures that your other nontoken creatures are able to copy and a potential wincon, depending on what else is in the deck. If you've got something with a good death/etb trigger like Ryusei, the Falling Star or Terror of the Peaks, that could quickly add up to a lot of damage.

It definitely isn't about having non mana payments, since they already have Terror of the Peaks which is formatted in the way you suggest.

The large difference made because of it being "counter unless you pay" instead of a static ability is that it allows other ways of getting around the ward besides paying the mana. I don't know if this was intended, but WotC is obviously aware of this because Long Goodbye was in the same set as Disguise. Benevolent Geist  Flip, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, and Abrupt Decay also provide counter play to Ward. I can't provide you with a "why" since I have no inside information, but the most likely explanation IMO is that it was in fact intended that "can't be countered" can be used to counteract Ward.

First of all, I love your deck choices!

But I believe that Ancient Gold Dragon would be a very good card to add even if he doesn't have haste. First of all he’s a 7/10 good blocker for the turn he comes in unlike Ancient Copper Dragon (6/5) but I understand that it’s slow if you don’t have a way to give him haste. Love Copper Dragon treasures thought <3

Imagine having Dragon Tempest /Scourge of Valkas /Terror of the Peaks out when up to 20 x blue faerie dragons enters the battlefield. The amount of damage each trigger would do.

Also very good with all attack triggers or other cool dragons you have in the deck (Dromoka, the Eternal, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, Old Gnawbone, Silumgar, the Drifting Death,Utvara Hellkite, Wrathful Red Dragon, Defiant Thundermaw  Flip).

You could also potentially draw up to 20 cards if Kindred Discovery or Greater Good is on the battlefield. Puts a good number of counters on Dragon's Hoard also.

I’d love to hear your opinion on why you didn’t include him in your list with all the good synergies!

I think I would probably have to switch Balefire Dragon for Ancient Gold Dragon. Most big problematic creatures have more than 6 toughness so Balefire doesn’t get rid of them it’s only good against Tokens stacking strategies early on. I’d rather get many blockers each turn recurring and like explained you only need 1 of those 3 pieces (Dragon Tempest/Scourge of Valkas/Terror of the Peaks) to do almost the same effect as Balefire but targeting anything.

Hey mate, when you talk about Dragon-Blink, my mind goes like Terror of the Peaks and Knollspine Dragon.

What you think about them?

Thanks for checking out the deck Squidcod. Overall, the priciest cards in the deck are Terror of the Peaks, Goldspan Dragon, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Mana Drain, Cyclonic Rift, Jeska's Will, and the various Shocks and Fetches. The real "meat" of the deck isn't as expensive

You could definitely swap Cyc Rift with Evacuation or Wash Out. Mana Drain could probably get swapped with Familiar's Ruse for some additional utility of taking a creature back to hand. Alternatively, you could also change some of those pricier creature slots into creatures with Ninjutsu, if you wanted a bit of that.

Definitely a game changer! Glad you were able to get a copy! I recently got a Dockside Extortionist and Terror of the Peaks that you had suggested to me a while ago, and I'm lovin it!

ted1 - I like the decklist and the concept! Looks like you are running a decent amount of ramp and flicker with the hope of generating lots of dragon copies/tokens via effects from Miirym, Sentinel Worm, Panharmonicon, etc...

If I may ask some questions and/or provide some thoughts...I am surprised things like Dragon Tempest, Terror of the Peaks, and Ancient Silver Dragon were omitted. Dragon Tempest and Terror of the Peaks are just like Scourge of Valkas and fill a similar roll. If you can get out lots of dragons, Dragon Tempest and Scourge of Valkas are superior but Terror of the Peaks is basically targeted removal when you only can get out a few dragons before another board wipe.

Ancient Silver Dragon I feel like you would need in this deck as it allows no maximum hand size. Given the amount of draw this deck has with things like Elemental Bond and Kindred Discovery, having some stuff like that would be crucial...

I am a little surprised to see Goldspan Dragon. You are only running three dragons with treasure synergy with Ganax, Astral Hunter and Ancient Copper Dragon obviously having some serious treasure production ability in this deck. Just feels like this inclusion with the hope of getting it out with one of those two is low and you could do better by adding a dragon with a different role.

Personally, whenever I run a creature heavy deck, I always include two things: 1. protection for my boardstate and 2. something to bring back my creatures after a boardwipe. Nothing is worse than having your deck explode onto the field and then a Wrath of God get dropped and you blew your load early and have no way to really recover. I would encourage you to try to find some form of both of these and include it such as Deflecting Swat, plus it has a dragon for flair!!!

Lastly, Gratuitous Violence outclassed by Fiery Emancipation...plus it has some dragon flair with the fire :)
