Quote from skybug12 »The more I play my deck, the more I end up bringing it closer to yours. People always say that aggro isn't good in EDH, and im seeing it first hand. It's too hard and too mana intensive to plow through with dragon hordes, especially against all the Dueling Grounds and silent arbiters in my group. Hopefully Fate Reforged and Dragons of Tarkir give us some nice toys.
How has the crucible of fire cut been for you? Ive been kind of on the fence with it, but when you recur Utvara Hellkite with Crucible + pandemonium, that extra +3 on every dragon adds up.
Quote from skybug12 »yeah those are my 2 includes as well. Im hoping for some warstorms in Dragons of Tarkir
Quote from Trabant777 »What no Balefire Dragon? I'm pretty amazed you don't have a copy of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in here. He's an absolute star in my deck. Two of any of your big dragons coming in the same turn is often lethal (especially Utvara Hellkite. And the end effect being sacrifice is excellent. Mimic Vat plays a similarly amazing role in my deck. Also I think Malfegor might surprise you if you playtest him. He's a bit situational but when you need to clear out the field for that big swing he's my go to guy. Scourge of Kher Ridges is a bit mana intensive if you have to cold cast him but hey most of the time you don't. I've never been disappointed with his performance when he gets out there and does his thing. Plus in a pinch he can kill off your own guys so that you can bring em on back. I'm assuming that you aren't running Sorin Markov for meta reasons, but if this isn't the case then you should seriously consider adding him in. Lastly Sarkhan the Mad can be an excellent finisher when the time comes.
Quote from Wildfire393 »If you're interested to go more hardcore combo with this list, I might suggest the following cards:
Feldon of the Third Path
The reason being is this: if you ever make a token copy of Bladewing, you can immediately loop his recursion effect an unlimited number of times, triggering Scourge of Valkas, Pandemonium, Dragon Tempest, Warstorm Surge, Outpost Siege, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Goblin Sharpshooter, or any other similar effects you run, each time. (Sadly, this does not work with Kiki-jiki, Mirror Breaker, as he cannot target Bladewing, being legendary)
How, you ask? Simple, we just use Sharuum's tech. When you create a copy of him, the token's ETB ability will trigger and go on the stack. BUT, before it can, you have to handle any state-based effects, which includes the legend rule, allowing you to immediately put Bladewing into your graveyard, where he can then be used as the target for the ETB ability. This returns him to the battlefield, triggering another ETB dragon-reanimate, but again forcing you to put one of your two Bladewings into the graveyard before it even goes on the stack. You can thus loop Bladewing coming in and dying as many times as you want, triggering any of the above effects each time.
Quote from hippohugger »Bro, why no Sarkhan's Triumph? I know you are running black, but I know that you personally cannot give up the flavor potential of a draconic tutor.
Quote from MightyPox »Hi skorchdnite!
With your overall strategy I think Wound Reflection might work well in your deck.
Quote from mageslay3r »man your missing worldgorger dragon bs necromancy + worldgorger dragon is great infinate mana.
Quote from D3ad 2 R1ght5 »Not sure if you have seen Balthor the Defiled but I think it might be a shoe in for this deck as it does exactly what you want your deck to do
Quote from Macabre »Love that you are keeping this updated!
Bladewing is one of my favorite commanders and is the pilot of my pimp'iest deck. My take although is more of a casual route, running silly mass reanimation effects like necrologia early and digging/tutoring for an early living death, and a random worldgorger dragon combo like mageslay3r mentioned.
A big recommendation although, because i see you've added Dragonlord Kolaghan to the party, is dragonstorm. Most dragonstorm decks want to run blue so they can do cheap cantrips or EOT quicken on the opponents turn and have a pile of ready-to-attack dragons, but with Dragonlord we have a haste-enabler that we can add to the storm tutor. In this sort of build you really only need a storm count of two to three to make a lethal board.
