That play must've had some style! I am intrigued by you mentioning Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. My build is very similar to the main one listed here, however, it focuses more-so on boucing lands and includes a higher amount of Trade Routes type effects. I have been playing with the idea of including Sunscorched Desert as a back up wincon... What do you guys think of that card? I for one have read it can combo off with Kodama/Sakashima (Tooth and Nail) or a land bounce effect!

plakjekaas yeah the inconsistency is really bothersome. Like Tooth and Nail is ok? But Coalition Victory isn't? The one requires you to have a two card combo in your deck the other you need to have a very specific board state

Forkbeard on Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm: Double Dragon

For sure, repeatable tutor + Sneak Attack effects are great. Thinking about it further though, you're paying 5 to bring out Zirilan and unless you have a haste enabler, Zirilan isn't tutoring for another turn, giving the table a chance to respond. If someone spot removes Z, you've essentially wasted a turn.

It could be great if the conditions are perfect; I've got Miirym out + Lightning Greaves on Zirilan giving him haste and protection, allowing Z to tutor right away and netting me another token copy of whatever I bring up. That's still an 8 mana investment. To play devil's advocate again, would it not be better at that point to just run something less setup heavy like Dragonstorm or Tooth and Nail for 1 more mana? Not repeatable, but if either of those resolve it's a big problem for the table.

In terms of mana efficiency (funny to talk about mana efficiency in a big derpy dragon deck but we can try), there's the 1 mana creature tutors like Gamble, Sylvan Tutor or Worldly Tutor. So yeah, there's a few options that exist in RUG.

So i’m a bit confused with the direction you’re trying to take here - it feels like you’re making 3 separate decks and trying to munge them together, with elements of ramp, +1 counters, and stompy. I think you need to pick a path and stick to it without deviation.

So, my big suggestion is, to pick a clear path, and then stick to it

Love it, Elves is also my EDH Deck. Any thoughts one running Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede for redundancy?... Tooth and Nail might also be great for tutoring up some key elves too. Regardless best of luck fellow elf player may you draw well!

Guerric on [Primer] Unleash the Dragon! *Updated*

With the addition of a few great new dragons in recent sets, I'm finally posting an update! Thanks for all the input on the deck for those who are playing dragons which have pointed out some great new options.

1) Dragon's Hoard OUT Ceta Sanctuary IN

As much as I love the flavor of hoard, it is generally slow and unreliable card draw, and any artifact-based ramp that costs three mana or more is too much these days, so it's never been great there. Ceta Sanctuary is such a perfect draw spell for this deck. With Scion out it will always draw two cards every turn and discard any one card from our hand, which allows us to filter any dragons we draw into the graveyard where we can get them out more efficiently. Kudos to kookoo for this fabulous suggestion!

2) Scourge of Valkas OUT Lathliss, Dragon Queen IN

Scourge was always good mostly as a Fireball when you could mass reanimate it, and pretty bad in most other situations. If it is on the board and one dragon enters, that's at best doming something for two. In contrast, if Lathliss is out and a dragon enters we get a 5/5 dragon token. What's more to the point, if we mass reanimate Lathliss we'll get tokens for every other dragon, and if we have a haste enabler all of those tokens will be able to attack that turn.

3) Vorosh, the Hunter OUT Scalelord Reckoner IN

Reckoner has always been great, so I'm not sure why I took it out of the original deck. Knowing they'll get reciprocity for removal is always a good incentive for your opponents to leave you alone and try to politic instead. Vorosh was great if you could get the counters, have Scion stick around, and then use him with Skittles the next turn, but this was kind of a slow process with a lot of investment, which can be easily disrupted. Putting six counters on Scion has a way of putting more of a target on him due to the possibility of commander damage alone, so I think reckoner is a better card.

4) Ojutai, Soul of Winter OUT Old Gnawbone IN

Ojutai is a great disruptor and has salvaged a few iffy games for me in the past by freezing down my opponents, but it is in very particular situations that he helps us and in others it's not as good. Gnawbone gets us lots of treasure, and is a great first target for Scion, and can also hoard us resources on the board later in the game. Its just an all-star card that's good in every situation, and I had to put it in.

5) Crucible of Fire OUT Kairi, the Swirling Sky IN

Kairi just has so much utility that she's hard to pass up. She is a third protection target for Scion, which we definitely need, and can also provide great utility on board-wipes. Crucible is good and always better than you expect it to be, but it is the weakest link at this point.

6) Herald's Horn OUT Sakura-Tribe Elder IN

Horn is a great card, but not in this deck. It is best in tribal decks with cheap creatures where you can cast multiple spells a turn at a discount, and draw a card on one and three turns. I'll probably put it in my Trynn, Champion of Freedom and Silvar, Devourer of the Free deck where it will rock the house. Here it only draws a card one in four turns, and we would rather draw other cards than our dragons. As a ramp piece it doesn't help us cast Scion, hard-casting our dragons isn't a focus, and its not likely we'll be casting more than one. Good old Elder gets us a land for two mana, which is where we really need to be on ramp in this deck.

7) Maelstrom Archangel OUT Sylvia Brightspear IN

I've had Sylvia since Battlebond when I pull her from a pack and have always intended to put her in. Three mana to give all our dragons double-strike is a nasty surprise, and cheap enough that we can still activate Scion that turn. The low-end is probably when only Scion is out, but we play her and make Scion into a big dragon for a voltron kill. The high end is we play her when a bunch of dragons are on the board, or put her and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight on the board with Tooth and Nail, and relish our opponents' tears! Maelstrom Archangel is best if we can cast her when a haste enabler is out and immediately put a permanent on the battlefield. She is expensive to cast and a big removal target, and there will be plenty of times we don't have anything good to put on the board with her. I wish she was legendary and could be an angels tribal commander, but Sylvia will be better here.

Your deck is being pulled in too many directions. You have Pili-Pala + Grand Architect (which is not a good combo outside of artifact decks) and Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake, neither of which have any form of redundancy or overlap. You also have waaaaay too many win conditions in the deck. Kenrith is an infinite mana sink, i.e. with infinite mana you win the game through his abilities alone - either forcing your oppoenents to deck out or beating with infinite sized creatures.

Additionally, a bunch of the infinite combos you do run also have zero redundancy or overlap, meaning that you have to get that one other card or the combo is useless.

You'd be much better off focusing on adding more ways to generate infinite that have overlapping parts, since once you have that and Kenrith, you don't need a huge density of win conditions.

For example, if you're going down the lands based mana combos then you should be looking into adding cards like Palinchron/Great Whale, Eternal Witness, Ghostly Flicker, Tooth and Nail etc (as well as adding more land fetching ramp). Hell, with Kenrith you could even look into a repeatable sac outlet, Peregrine Drake and Mirari's Wake (or Nyxbloom Ancient would be better) as yet another loop. Bue either way, now your mana combos are protected so that you can lose any one piece and you're still covered. And you increase the chance of drawing into it since you don't necessarily need to draw a specific card, you have 2-3 different cards that can fit that bill.

I run a Kenrith list (which admittedly has a much higher budget) which focuses on generating infinite mana then going from there. What I have tried to do is to keep the combos to two central themes - one is around tapping mana dorks/rock and the other is around flickering to generate infinite mana. however what you'll see is that all the pieces are designed to interact with each other, providing the deck with many ways to form infinite mana while also leaning on other functions of the deck to do so (in this case mana dorks/rocks). This means that by the simple act of ramping, the deck is setting up its combos.

deck: King me! King me!

Also, I would look at ditching Cowardice - it's only good against expensive beaters that don't have good ETBs.

Grasshoppeh1, I'm so glad you played it. Thanks for sharing your experience with it. I think Dragonlord Dromoka is obviously really good in the deck. I've avoided it because I just personally don't want the deck to create situations where interaction isn't possible. I like Tooth and Nail though. That's a good idea.
