itachi45, a previous version of this deck ran those cards actually. What I found was that Mayael's Aria and Mighty Emergence became a "win more" condition rather than helping the consistency. Where Ancients Tread I had taken out because I felt it was too mana expensive. But I haven't tried it with Enlisted Wurm , which could cheat it out. Thanks for the suggestions!

Mayael's Aria seems doable. Also, Where Ancients Tread and Mighty Emergence are pretty fun.

I am a very simple human being: I see a alt-art of Tohru and I click on the deck. Pity you do not have alt-arts of Fafnir, Locula and Khana. Would have loved to see that! I do have a few suggestions for the deck. Wild Pair would be a good addition to the deck. Boltwing Marauder is a pretty good dragon. Crucible of Fire gives a boost to every dragon. Lathliss, Dragon Queen should have an honourable place in this deck. Dragon's Hoard is fun and on theme. Where Ancients Tread is a maybe but it is thematic. You may want to consider Living Death as some recurrsion.

I hope this has helped!

Some suggestions from a fellow Scion of Ur-Dragon EDH player:

Mana rocks that fix colours are your friend in a deck that can run such high mana costs! Stuff like the Ravnica Signets can do a significant amount in fixing your colour bases in the early game. I put all 10 into my deck and I have never regretted it.

You're on the right track with finding means to lower the costs. Things like Urza's Incubator , Urza's Filter , Elvish Piper can add a lot of redundancy to the deck along with the ones you already have in there.

What do the Nicol Bolas walkers do in the deck that are vital to the strategy? Personally I find Sarkhan (The Mad especially) does a lot more when it comes do a dragon heavy deck.

Things like Where Ancients Tread can do a significant amount of damage as well just by you playing your Dragons.

Overall it looks like a decently solid EDH deck.

Hey, great start really well made deck :)

Cards to consider adding:

Gamble and Chaos Warp are fantastic cards because their effects are outside red's color pie. Their staples for red because they're unique and powerful. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing being either ramp, draw or removal. Tectonic Reformation and Endless Atlas can be sources of repeatable draw.

Feldon of the Third Path can be repeatable reanimation with haste of Dragons which is a helpful effect to have since Dragons are going to die. He'll make a token copy of a Dragon which doesn't trigger Lathliss, but that's fine because the tokens trigger any ETB abilities or attack triggers the creature has. Feldon is good to take some advantage of Avaricious Dragon and Dragon Mage . He's also very good with Solemn Simulacrum to create a mini land ramp and draw engine for red.


Cards to consider cutting:

golgariizzet on Marath, Beast of Parties

i love marath he was my commander forever for my beast tribal deck but then i decided to go with Samut, Voice of Dissent because it functions a little better for me. i see you have Where Ancients Tread why not Warstorm Surge instead or both but if you only want to run one i would go with warstorm it does not limit you on size. instead of planar cleansing how about Phyrexian Rebirth it's a good wipe and a little cheaper also there is Wrath of God which is great Decimate is good also and Nevinyrral's Disk . A good tutor would be Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith i think chord is a little better though. i see you have primal vigor but what about Parallel Lives and Doubling Season and Anointed Procession are super good but doubling season is a little costly. just some thoughts like the deck here is mine even though i don't run marath anymore Beastiality (beast tribal)

Bitte ändere den Decktyp mal von Standard zu Commander. Ansonsten bekomme ich immer eine Warnung für jede Karte, die ich empfehlen will, die aber in dem Format nicht legal ist

Hier noch einmal ein paar Kreaturen, die ich eigentlich sehr geil und günstig finde - besonders, wenn dein Commander sie noch mit Trample ausstattet: Altered Ego , , Zameck Guildmage Gruul Ragebeast (nette Kombo mit Foe-Razer Regent ) , Ravager Wurm , Stonebrow, Krosan Hero (die Kombo ist wohl offensichtlich)

Progenitor Mimic , Simic Sky Swallower sind sehr solide. Gerade Hexproof/Shroud finde ich unglaublich wichtig.

Vessel of Endless Rest warum willst du das spielen? Wenn du Mana-Ramp willst, gehe am besten gleich zu den Signets: Gruul Signet Simic Signet Izzet Signet . Dann gibt es auch noch die Cluestones: Gruul Cluestone Simic Cluestone Izzet Cluestone

Deine Kreaturen sind teilweise recht teuer. Du musst natürlich austesten, wie das Deck läuft, aber ich würde zumindest zu Anfang die Daumenregel nutzen, dass man 38 Länder und 6 - 8 Mana-Artefakte spielt. Ich würde bei den teuren Kreaturen lieber mehr Mana als weniger spielen und dann vielleicht noch Karten spielen, in die du überschüssiges Mana pumpen kannst, wie River Hoopoe (nur als Beispiel, dass mir gerade einfällt). Ansonsten finde ich Hydras recht cool. Die kann man mit viel oder weniger Mana spielen und viele freuen sich sehr über das Trample, dass Surrak ihnen gibt. Außerdem kann man in viele Hydras auch später noch Mana pumpen. Schau mal hier: https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=type%3Ahydra+commander%3AURG

Wenn du mit Paleoloth ein wenig in die "Power Matters" Schiene möchtest, wären vielleicht folgende Karten eine Sichtung wert: Drumhunter , Exuberant Firestoker , Mossbridge Troll (Wenn du Kreaturen mit Wachsamkeit nutzt, wird der völlig absurd), Mouth , Shamanic Revelation , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Where Ancients Tread .

Was mir auch aufgefallen ist: Du hast kein Removal. Ja, im Mehrspieler ist es immer besser, wenn man die anderen Spieler dazu überredet, ihr Removal zu nutzen, aber du wirst selber was brauchen um Bedrohungen die nur dich angehen zu beseitigen - oder einfach, um etwas zu tun wenn keiner der anderen Removal auf der Hand hat: Klassische Karten: Acidic Slime , Artifact Mutation , Beast Within , Blue Elemental Blast , Decimate , Krosan Grip , Manglehorn , Meteor Golem , Natural State , Nature's Claim , Pongify , Thrashing Brontodon Meine Geheimtipps: Bramblecrush , Broken Bond , Cindervines , Hull Breach , Hoard-Smelter Dragon , Descent of the Dragons (Damit kannst du auch deine eigenen kleinen Kreaturen zu Drachen machen), Unstable Obelisk (völlig unterbewertet), Storm the Citadel (deine Kreaturen haben Trampel, was ziemlich vernichtend sein kann)

MokraMrkva on Dragon gates

Thanks for suggestions. Did not put Wild Pair because it costs lots of mana and that slows the deck down. Dragon Tempest , Where Ancients Tread , Warstorm Surge , Spit Flame and Crucible of Fire seemed unnecessary to me because I won't have more than a few dragons on the battlefield. If you have more than 3 or 4 dragons out at the same time, you have practically already won. Living Death is very nice, but I put it in another deck so Primevals' Glorious Rebirth kinda replaces it. It's full of flavor if nothing else. Did not include Grow from the Ashes because i needed ramp that searches for gate lands because of my alternate win condition. Fist of Suns also seems too slow for me. You can't use it at all untill you have 5 different mana, so simple mana rocks have greater potential, I think (you can turn 5 ur dragon with mana rocks AND you can use them before that turn for other things). But thanks for ideas anyway, some cool cards i didn't know about.
