Davinoth on Orah's Cleric Hysterics

     Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you on this! I like your build but I do have a few questions and suggestions. =)

     I assume not running Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar is part of the pursuit of making this a 'fair' deck? I think I'd still recommend a few sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer or maybe Altar of Dementia.

     Do you feel like you're getting good value out of Herald's Horn? I used to run Edgewalker and Urza's Incubator in my build but eventually cut them as I didn't feel my creature package had a high enough average CMC to make them worthwhile. If you like the extra card advantage from it then I wonder if Phyrexian Arena would be a better fit in this slot for you?

     I also cut Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes in favour of Benevolent Bodyguard and Vigilant Martyr as I really felt like I needed creatures I wanted to kill.

     I kind of disagree with your inclusion of Containment Priest, Athreos, God of Passage & Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, as Orah wants things in your graveyard. And his trigger will cause Containment Priest to exile whatever you return to the battlefield. If you're looking for wipe protection you may get better value out of Faith's Reward or Akroma's Will.

     Only other suggestion is more lands! Especially if you're not willing to run the mana Altars. Thirty-two lands is simply too few without significantly more card draw.

     I hope I was helpful, and thanks again for checking out my build! =)

I originally had more two-drop rocks, but went away from them to go with more land ramp. I'm actually considering dropping some more of the artifacts I have, but have not convinced myself to do so yet. Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn are good, but once I get Gishath out, they tend to not be quite as useful with Gishath doing all the work to get dinos out. I've been keeping them around because I know there will be times when my Commander won't be an option.

My mana base is pretty good, so I won't be adding Terramorphic or Evolving Wilds. If I didn't have the mana base I have already available, I would probably run them.

Regal Behemoth is out of budge, as is The Great Henge. I own a copy, but it's in another deck for now. The Tarrasque's fight ability could be useful, but it probably won't ever have Ward 10 in this deck. I'm on the fence about it. Rampaging Brontodon is easy beats, for sure.

Thanks cows5467! It used to be much more tribal oriented (was running Urza's Incubator, Vanquisher's Banner, etc.) but the pods I've been in with lately have "forced" me to punch up a little bit.

Stardragon on First Dragon Commander Deck

Great first deck but i fear you may not have the mana you need to make it work i would cut some lands like for some more basic lands and get a few more land ramps

Crucible of the Spirit Dragon for a Basic Mountain, Crucible is fine but slow as it only taps for colorless and you have to pay mana to get colored mana, this is the biggest maybe I've never like storage lands personally.

Gateway Plaza, Archway Commons and Rupture Spire one or two of these can be cut for another mountain and a Darigaaz's Caldera

I would also trade Opulent Palace for Savage Lands since Jund () are your main colors

I would also rearrange some of your basic land numbers try 5x Mountains, 4x Forests, 3x Swamps and 2x Plains and Islands and i would cut Underdark Rift, Treasure Vault, Rogue's Passage and Prismari Campus for the basic lands

Would also try to get some cheap basic ramp cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Farseek and Sword of the Animist for basic land ramp and things like Hour of Promise, Tempt with Discovery, Pir's Whim, Explore and Growth Spiral for non basic ramp.

Now that I told my thoughts on your mana here are some other cards to help your dragons not sure your budget so i categized them. These price are based off of TCGplayer.

$10-$19.99- Scalelord Reckoner $13, Vanquisher's Banner $12, Sarkhan Unbroken $15,Sarkhan, Fireblood $11,

$20 and over-Terror of the Peaks $25, Dragonlord Dromoka $25, Balefire Dragon $30, The Great Henge $50, Urza's Incubator $40, Sarkhan, Dragonsoul $27, Chromatic Orrery $20

@wayward, I strongly disagree with that. Semblance Anvil reduces the cost of over 50% of this deck, and it keeps being good after you cast your commander. If I was really worried about Semblance not helping me with my creatures, like my commander, I would just run more creatures. The most optimized pick you can get with Semblance Anvil is an artifact creature, since that will reduce both types, but I'm usually content with just an artifact.

I don't think Urza's Incubator belongs in this deck, frankly. It just does nothing with too many hands. Anvil can be clutch with certain hands, but Incubator is more like to just sit there and be a generic rock that doesn't help you cast the majority of stuff in your deck. Sorry if my response is too thorough than required, but I really like to lay out all my argument at once.

I'd suggest pulling Semblance Anvil since it has few targets and replacing with Urza's Incubator or another rock maybe

Really fun looking deck. I'm sure you know about Urza's Incubator but I've found it to be really good in my dragon deck.

Hello NV_1980!

I've been considering Urza's Incubator and it was in the maybeboard until recently. I go back and forth on it simply because it's not the most exciting card for me to play despite it's powerful effect. It is out of my price range but I happen to already have a copy, so it may very well end up in the deck

You are absolutely right that I need more card draw. I don't love Underworld Connections because it can only be used once a turn (at least in this deck).

I've been a little paranoid about Phyrexian Arena ever since I saw someone die to it. I know it's a little silly, but I like having full control over if/when I spend life which is why, even if they cost more life, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Greed are my preferred card draw sources that I need to make room for. I'm just agonizing over what to take out to fit them in.

I already have some idea what I should remove, but first I want to playtest more and I haven't been able to play MtG in some time.

Twilight Prophet is an amazing card and should be in this deck yesterday, but it is rather expensive so I am waiting for a day it will hopefully cost less.

Thank you for commenting!
