Ziatora the Dragon Liquidator (Sneak Attack/Combo)

Commander / EDH BRG (Jund) Dragons Flying Infinite Combo Reanimator Sacrifice Treasure




Liquidation Google Definition

  1. Formal: The process of liquidating a business. "the company went into liquidation" the conversion of assets into cash (i.e. by selling them).

  2. Informal: The killing of someone, typically by violent means

Ya... that is just about the perfect definition for this Deck. This deck is a Dragon Tribal, Treasure, Sacrifice, Resurrection, Combo Deck with Ziatora, the Incinerator at the helm. The Combo lines in this deck are very dangerous & extremely fun to play. Focusing on Infinite Mana, Card Draw, Combats, & Damage to any target. It can slap down one of these combos out of nowhere making it very hard to read or counter. There is also an infinite life Combo in the maybe board if you desire. The Tutor theme is VERY heavy so building a Combo is very easy. Combined with very strong Ramp Theme & Enchantments like Sneak Attack & Aggravated Assault this deck has turn one/two game winning potential. The Treasure/Dragon Tribal was something I was very interested in building from the start and with a little help and advice from some friends I feel like we have building something very fast & unique in the Dragon Tribal, and Treasure Themes that most haven't seen yet. This deck is very much based around Sneak Attack and is more or less a Combo shell based around getting it down quick and unleashing combos out of nowhere. If this deck has a Secret Commander this is it. Ziatora, the Incinerator just adds fuel to the fire netting Damage and Mana for your Sacrifice. The deck also sports a very heavy Recursion theme so recycling spells and dragons is super easy.

Goldspan Dragon/Korvold, Fae-Cursed King Combo Lines (Infinite Treasure, Card Draw, Treasure for the Win, +1/+1, & +1/+0 until end of turn)

Goldspan Dragon with Crown of Flames or Whip Silk let you target Goldspan making a Treasure and return it to your hand to do again. This makes infinite treasure but won't net extra Mana without other cards out.

Unlimited Treasure Jolene, the Plunder Queen, Xorn, or Parallel Lives

Unlimited Sacrifice/Card Draw/+1/+1 counters Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is awesome with this combo not needing Infinite mana to trigger or get bigger but be very careful with this card as you can Draw yourself to death.

Treasure Win Condition at the beginning of your upkeep Hellkite Tyrant with 20 Artifacts or Revel in Riches with 10 Treasure. These work In hand with Emergence Zone or Sneak Attack on the battlefield letting you flash them out & can make for a very unexpected and sneaky Combo.

Mana Pump Jolene, the Plunder Queen, Genesis Wave, Klauth's Will, Crown of Flames, Bladewing the Risen, Inferno of the Star Mounts, Scourge of Valkas, Steel Hellkite, Aggravated Assault, Hellkite Charger, & Kessig Wolf Run let you take all that Mana & pump it into creatures or spells for combats, bigger creatures, or combin with Ziatora, the Incinerator for a lethal fling. Also combined with Backdraft Hellkite after he attacks can be brutal playing ALL your Instant & Sorcery Spells in your Graveyard.

(Maybe cards)

Unlimited Draw/Life Gain Academy Manufactor Mana Pump Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Skyship Stalker.

Hellkite Charger/Aggravated Assault Infinite Combat Combo Lines (Infinite Mana, Combats)

Hellkite Charger & Savage Ventmaw out with Goldspan Dragon or Jolene, the Plunder Queen. Also Jolene, the Plunder Queen out with Goldspan Dragon or just Aggravated Assault & Savage Ventmaw are some very simple combinations that unlock this. When paired with Sneak Attack they can be very dangerous and unexpected if not game winning.

This works with Goldspan Dragon and his Infinite Treasure Combo as well & Worldgorger Dragon & his Infinite Mana Combo with Aggravated Assault.

Ancient Copper Dragon, & Old Gnawbone can also Combo this given the right situations. (Enough Mana/Treasure to trigger Hellkite Charger effect when attacking or Aggravated Assault after.)

(Maybe Cards)

Grand Warlord Radha acts as a copy of Goldspan Dragon or Jolene, the Plunder Queen when paired with Savage Ventmaw making 7 Mana when attacking with Hellkite Charger to pay for his ability. The Reaver Cleaver is another Maybe that can net enough Mana to activate this ability.

Worldgorger Dragon Combo Lines (Infinite Mana/ETB triggers)

Worldgorger Dragon in your Graveyard paired with Animate Dead in hand or Worldgorger Dragon in hand with Molten Echoes on the battlefield & you have started the chain. If you have Dragon Tempest, Terror of the Peaks, or Scourge of Valkas on the battlefield you will burn your enemies to death. With Aggravated Assault and the right Mana base you can pay for unlimited combat steps.

Mana Pump Genesis Wave, Klauth's Will, Crown of Flames, Bladewing the Risen, Inferno of the Star Mounts, Scourge of Valkas, Steel Hellkite, Aggravated Assault, & Kessig Wolf Run work with this Combo just like the Goldspan Dragon Combo & are even more dangerous with Ziatora, the Incinerator on the battlefield letting you fing something at someone's face.

Unlimited Draw The Great Henge is cool with this combo but can draw you out of cards so you best be careful. You can try and zap it with Klauth's Will or Kolaghan's Command before cards run out.

Unlimited Recursion Eternal Witness, Bladewing the Risen, Phyrexian Reclamation, & Volrath's Stronghold with The Great Henge

Dockside Extortionist can net you loads of Mana as well with this combo.

The Maybe List is rather large but these are some of the best cards to supplement in for redundancy in its themes and allowing for a more budget build with less pricy spell & land cards.
