Utvara Hellkite

Creature — Dragon


Whenever a dragon you control attacks, create a 6/6 red Dragon creature token with flying.

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.

My version is a bit more artifact focused but have you tried Clone Legion, Dollhouse of Horrors, Mechanized Production, or Utvara Hellkite?

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.

Coward_Token My first thought is big tokens. Utvara Hellkite and Call the Skybreaker can churn through big chunks of your deck. If one out of every ten cards in your deck is an extra turn or extra combat spell, you might be able to get just enough punch to force a win with those two cards alone.

Of course, you need to get to that point, but that's what the rest of the deck is for.

Azoth2099 thanks for the suggestions!

I think I'm more inclined to include rocks than rituals, I am a green player at heart and always prefer continual rather than burst ramp! Thran Dynamo is definitely one I'll be looking at, but I've also considered Heraldic Banner and Throne of Eldraine as solid options. The biggest issue I'm having is generally what to cut for them, the same issue I have for most of these options. Any suggestions there?

Treasonous Ogre isn't one I'd seen before, I'm definitely interested in that. Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip seems more relevant if I'm trying to cast more than 2 spells in a turn, which in most cases I'm not and even then, the payoff seems too small for what the deck does generally speaking, I.E. ramp into Lathliss, then overwhelm the field with every dragon dropped after. Even most of the artifacts and enchantments currently tend to have pretty immediate effect.

I do tend to prefer to have my lands hit the field, though, so Tectonic Reformation seems mostly situationally useful. I tend to need more land draws than action draws with my current high curve, as I'm usually only doing 1 or 2 spells a turn and they're 5-8 CMC. Gamble for sure I'll be looking into, but to be honest I don't regularly find myself looking for any specific cards in the deck, my Sarkhan's Triumph is usually just finding my Utvara Hellkite, so a "win-more" situation generally, but I could see using it particularly for something like Sol Ring early to ramp more consistently. For those same reasons I couldn't really see justifying Fervent Mastery or Reckless Handling. I like being able to plan, and the random discard would be bad enough with Gamble. And yeah, Imperial Recruiter is fantastic but not so much here.

Molten Echoes 100%, I totally spaced that one. Sneak Attack seems good as well but I'd been running in mostly casual circles so I hadn't seriously considered including it before. Mana Echoes=better Birgi? Absolutely interested in this one now, I'd forgotten it existed as well! I'll be honest though, the Underworld Breach+draw spells/wheels is definitely outside of my desired playstyle with the deck, I don't tend to need anything differently than what I have in hand other than making sure I have a good mix of mana/spells in practice. I am running the Blood Moon, mostly because I happened to open the fancy foil one! My playgroups don't tend to justify a Price of Glory and all of my cards tend to be about equal in value, so I don't mind a few getting countered here and there. It tends to be board wipes that are the most impactful to me, or repeated removal of Lathliss, Dragon Queen. Stranglehold does seem good though, I may pick one up.

As far as Universal Automaton, I avoid changelings where possible mostly due to personal preference. I play a lot of tribal decks and it always feels a bit like cheating haha. I use it in decks that want multiple tribes though, like Rin and Seri, Inseparable. I assume you suggest Wandering Archaic  Flip in monocolored to specifically cover what the chosen color can't do? I.E. a red deck and Naturalize? I could see it being good, but also giving my opponents the ability to choose doesn't tend to work out too well for me, they tend to focus fire me no matter the game because I play politics whether I'm ahead or behind.

Thanks again for the suggestions, and if you have ideas for what to take out please let me know!

I was also not sure about Mirror March but I wanted to try it at least one time. Getting more than 1 Utvara Hellkite or Terror of the Peaks is bonkers. Normally I had Gate to the AEther in this spot, which was not strong but leads to the next section:

Gate to the AEther, Guild Feud and Pandemonium are there mostly to make the game more interesting for others too. I add and remove them based on the power level of the playgroup.

Shadowspear is amazing, love the suggestion!

I had a Moonveil Dragon but I never fetched it because I never had more than 3 creatures on board (and if I do I'm often about to win), whereas I often have more than 3 artifacts on board for Hellkite Igniter, and it has helped me get a couple surprise wins.

After looking at your deck I agree with the Mana curve being too high. I'd suggest adding this nice little combo by splashing green. Minion of the Mighty + Scale Up this will allow you to cheat down your Utvara Hellkite. I'd also suggest adding Shivan Devastator as it can be played early and late game. Some good cards that I think you should squeeze in simply because they are amazing are Balefire Dragon Earthquake Dragon A weird way you can also take your deck is Dragon's Approach

I use to run a land destruction version of Kaalia years ago. Since then she’s move to faster kills by bleeding the opposition. Ravages of War is another mass land d card but will cost you $.

I’m surprised you’re not running Dragon Mage as a wonder wheel draw effect. Keen Duelist helps kill your opponents due to your higher cmc while offering increased draw.

Dragon Tempest is a staple for Kaalia and abused by incorporating Utvara Hellkite and Ancient Gold Dragon, amplified with running Terror of the Peaks. I don’t run a ton of dragons so I chose to keep out Utvara as it’s more situational in my deck.

You might find use in Mudslide and Circle of Flame. I run Mudslide and Moat.

Talismans > Signets, try hitting about 10-11 mana rocks. In Archenemy games where you’re the threat, Kaalia is just the decoy for removal while you more easily hard cast your threats. Quicksilver Amulet and Sneak Attack are good avenues around losing Kaalia as well, but have you considered Sundial of the Infinite which gets rid of sneak attacks drawback and opens combat combos and infinite turns to your arsenal? Maybe too much of you want to keep casual.

The Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood aren’t honestly needed in here. Archfiend of Depravity, Wound Reflection, Sower of Discord, Scourge of the Skyclaves, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight,and Heartless Hidetsugu are functionally better choices to utilize and synergize/combo.
