Quote from Seravol »What do you think abuot Skarrgan Hellkite?
Is it worth a try?
And maybe just a thought about Tome of the Guildpact...
Quote from Igzex »Glass is overcosted even as a mana rock and a draw engine at the same time.
Skarrgan Hellkite is a standard finisher with little to no application for EDH.
Smothering Tithe might be the closest thing to a possible inclusion to me from this set.
Quote from Gashnaw »what about rhythm of the wild?
Quote from Igzex »I would rank Dragonlord Kolaghan far above Urabrask. Her dragon typing allows her to function as a dragon beater, dragon support, and a recipient of dragon support (dragon discounters, Patriarch's Bidding, triggering Lathliss, Dragon Queen etc.) all at once. Urabrask is actually kinda garbage in the Ur-Dragon. Its additional upside of hindering your opponents a little is not worth being an otherwise non-synergistic fatty in an already top-heavy deck.
My rank is
Rhythm of the Wild
Though I do need to try to see if I can slot in Rhythm of the Wild to try it. If there's one thing that's a pain in the butt about 5 color decks, it's that the 99 cards issue really haunts you when you can run basically anything you want...

Quote from bobthefunnyYup. It doesn't change zones. It simply holds a sign up saying "I'm not here!" if anything comes looking for it.

Quote from hyalapterouslemur »Quote from Seravol »And maybe just a thought about Tome of the Guildpact...
Five-mana rocks need to offer at least two mana (Gilded Lotus is good in some mana-heavy decks, like this one.), or make it "It's also a rock." But you won't be casting as many multicolored spells as you think.
Quote from Gutterstorm »You can get Dragon’s Hoard for 3. Tome is definitely worse.
Quote from Igzex »My general principal for my build is to be very careful about running any sort of ramp that costs more than 3 mana and even then the vast majority should cost 2 at most. A good chunk of the deck is going to be 6+ drops so you kinda need to keep the curve for the rest of the deck as low as you can. The only exception I keep in my deck is Oracle of Mul Daya because she forms some good engines with my Crucible of Worlds, fetches, and Haven of the Spirit Dragon package.
Quote from Seravol »Any thought about Morophon, the Boundless?
It could be another cmc reducer, it's affected by The Ur-Dragon effect (and with Urza's Incubator it costs just 4) and it gives a +1/+1 to other dragons.
And if there's Fist of Suns in play, that means free dragons...
Quote from Gashnaw II »you just necroed a two year old thread.
Quote from Igzex »Fist of Suns was definitely one of the first cuts I made in the precon because it was absolutely pointless. 5 mana is not a discount in a deck of creatures that are largely going to be 5-4 mana anyways. At least though it now has a cute interaction with Morophon. Now give us an actual dragon in Modern Horizons already and I mean one that's actually even remotely good.

Quote from Seravol »Quote from Igzex »Now give us an actual dragon in Modern Horizons already and I mean one that's actually even remotely good.A dragon has arrived... but I don't think he's good enough to find a spot: Ore-Scale Guardian.
Quote from Igzex »Yeah Modern Horizons literally has nothing for the Ur-Dragon to me at this point. Such a largely dull set so far. But at the very least it adds Yawgmoth to my Jodah 5 color Bishonen tribal project. I still can't believe I can actually say Yawgmoth is a bishonen...
