Utvara Hellkite Discussion

Hey there! Thanks for the insights on my list! Here, I'll give some of my own:
-I understand what you mean when you point out that I should have Seven Dwarves on my list simply for the low CMC. But have you thought about using those slots for 1 CMC dwarves? On this deck, 2CMC 2/2's are worst than 1 CMC 1/1's simply because you can curve'em into Magda on T2 and start generating treasures. I'm only trying to remove the seven dwarves from list because I consistently get a 1 drop dwarf on T1 into Magda T2 into a 3 drop (or a 1 drop + a 2 drop) on T3. This way you can often enough get 5+ treasures by T4 (If no one removes Magda, ofc).
-Your list seems to have a lot of payoffs both for Dragons and Artifacts/Equipments. Thats not bad, but you must remember: Magda's abillity is quite strong when you can pop it early. In my experience, if I pop it by T4-5 with the correct tutor I will snowball the game really fast and win the game with 3-4 more activations tops (normally I'll have 1 available per turn by then). My point beeing, with 10-12 payoffs you should be more than ready to kick it off. I, personally, prefered the artifact road since I can play dwarf tribal with a few dragons to bring some value. But if you want to play heavy on two tribes, thats also fine!
What I'd suggest to you is to try at least a few of those 1CMC dwarves and try to take away a few of the payoffs for a smoother mana curve.
A few good 1 drops to look for: Universal Automaton , Dwarven Grunt , Dwarven Trader , Dwarven Scorcher , Bloodfire Dwarf , Dwarven Armorer , Enslaved Dwarf and Liberated Dwarf . Honestly they're all better than Seven Dwarves , even if you manage to have more than one in the board, since you dont care for their size but for how many activations each managed to get from your commander.

Or is this card meant more for EDH or mono decks?

I like using Feldon of the Third Path . He's one of the few decks I have that has survived through years of taking apart decks. His specialty is creating multiples of cards that should not exist in multiple in commander. Thing like 3 Utvara Hellkite or Pathrazer of Ulamog are devastating. My decklist is FELDON EDH PRIMER: FELDON NEEDS SOME LOVE. Boardstates can get ridiculous out of nowhere.

Here's my list for discussion purposes.
The drawbacks you listed are real. But the way I look at it, every deck has some holes baked into their structure, we just want to maximize the benefits. The absolute strongest play this deck can have is an early game reanimation effect, so I'm trying to maximize the chance that I can discard a huge dragon as well as have something in my hand to bring them out way ahead of curve. Animate Dead , Necromancy , and Reanimate are the best at this. However, if turn 2 I cast Wild Guess and discard Utvara Hellkite , and turn 3 I cast dance of the dead, I still have a huge turn 4 attack that will also make bodies. Basically, anyway we can get dragons out ahead of curve is on plan so I'm willing to play some less effective cards with the same effect.
Sometimes it can be more painful to discard multiples with cards like cathartic reunion and you're right tutors are way better. But why not both? Cathartic sometimes lets you discard a dragon and an anger which feels great! Mostly it's just about maximizing the cards I see each game, so I've never had situations where it felt too awful. I usually have at least one dragon and one card I'd gladly trade in like an extra land or something.
Let me know your thoughts, I don't have any sacred cows and I'm always trying to make Bladewing better! He's my absolute favorite commander.

Dragonspeaker Shaman is not Modern Legal. You can change the format to casual if this is just for kitchen table and not for FNM or other events. It looks pretty good. If you are looking for other cards to add, here are some of my favorites:
Atarka, World Render (a bomb if you're willing to splash for the extra color)
