For a couple of days now, the pictures haven't been showing for Tokens.
There is only a black box.
You are able to input all the information you'd like, but you can't see what the Token actually is.
I'm on an iPhone.

Just so we are clear, Friday Night Magic is considered a tournament.
Is that what you have been playing, or just casual games you've picked up at your LGS?
How competitive a deck is partly depends on the meta it is playing in. Every local meta is different.
For example, the one I currently play in has three original brews that do well - Red Combo, Gruul Dinos, and Grixis Reanimator.
You'd need to play and adjust your deck, to see if it can be competitive.
I do like a lot of the ideas you already have. Some clever interactions.

A deck can do well casually but, unless it's in a competitive environment, winning doesn't mean a lot.
Neither does the cost of a deck. When you play Standard, building decks can be very costly.
I certainly didn't build great decks to start with. I started playing competitively right away.
That was a hard way to learn.
I must've built over twenty decks in paper, in my first year of playing. All different types, and colours.
Some copied ideas I had seen my opponents play. Most were original ideas. I just wanted to learn to build decks that could keep up with the top ones in the meta.
Ending a match quickly is one way of winning, but there are many others that are just as effective.
This deck has the bones to be excellent. It does need a few tweaks to get it there.
Sometimes Become Immense is even better.
Keep tweaking and playing this deck, and don't be afraid to play it in a tournament.
Part of building is seeing how competitive your deck is, and adjusting it to make it better and better.

Did you play this deck much?
Are you still playing it?
You've changed it since your first match report, as a lot of the cards you mention are different.
I agree wholeheartedly that Soul-Scar Mage isn't that great. I think people mostly use it against Indestructible Creatures, but it is a slow method of killing them.
I agree that Bomat Courier is extremely handy.
I haven't yet played a match up where I could get the most out of Rampaging Ferocidon although there is a lifegain deck that plays in my local meta.
Interesting to go back and playtest this deck. Feels like a good start.
Curious to see your thoughts on it, now.

She put in into exile, then noticed that she had a Negate in hand, and asked if she could play it.
I said no, because Traxos, Scourge of Kroog was already in exile.
I was talking about this with a friend, who said I was rules lawyering, and they would have let her play the Negate
It would probably have cost me the match.

Thanks for the answers, and apologies for posting the wrong side of the card.
You both brilliantly worked that out!

I think you need some lands that can tap for two different colours. It's difficult to have 2x available to cast counter spells, when needed.
This deck also has 71 cards, which makes it somewhat inconsistent. Can it be cut back closer to 60?
I'd love to see a match report for this. Can you write one for the next tournament you play in?

ElijahCallahan64 I don't think you took a very good look at this deck.
It can create loads of Clues and Treasures.
I never give advice with a budget in mind, unless I am asked to do that.
It is easy to think your deck is better than another, unless you are playing against the person who created the other deck.
Playtesting when you can see both decks isn't the best test. Also, there may be plays you aren't aware of.

I know that she has to activate her ability in order to transform, but am unsure as to whether or not her combat damage is taken into consideration.

If Galazeth Prismari is so essential for this deck, why not run four copies?
That will make it more likely that you will see it in hand and, since your Opponent is likely to get rid of it, you will have a backup copy.
For these reasons I will often run four copies of an essential Legendary Creature.

This seems as though it is Izzet, not Jeskai.
It also feels slightly more like an Artifact deck, than a Dragon deck.
Although a lot of the spells reference Dragons, you only have six Dragons in the Mainboard.
This makes me think that there would be a lot of times where you don't have any in hand, to take advantage of some of your spells.
How do you want this deck to win? Through beat down?
If so, moving Glorybringer to the Mainboard might be a good idea.
Try to work out what exactly you want this deck to do. It feels a little unfocused, right now.
At this stage it is:
Scry and draw
Play Dragons or show from hand
Board wipe the Opponent
These are all good things but, they are pulling this deck in all different directions.
You can't be sure you will be able to do any one thing, when you most need to.

Have you playtested this against any of the decks in this Pioneer folder?
That is a playtesting gauntlet I set up.
Granted, some of the decks are no longer legal, but there are plenty of decks that are currently at the top of the general meta.
