Commander 2017 “Draconic Domination” Budget Upgrade
Welcome back, Magic fans! Commander 2017 has been spoiled and release day is coming up this Friday 28th August, so what better time than right now to jump in and explore the new decks and some BUDGET minded upgrade options! Commander is more of, and you probably already know this, a casual multiplayer style of gameplay. Much different to other constructed and cut throat formats. This means we have a lot of room to have the most fun we can! So lets dive right on in and take a look at the cuts and additions!
Draconic domination is all about a nice steady stream of fire and brimstone, raining from the skies. A sign of the end times, should you let it get a foothold. Though you may want to make sure to keep a few dragons back just in case your opponent wipes your board clean.
YOU WILL LIKE IT IF:
- You like fatty fliers that each have a unique ability.
- You like having access to every colour
- You like creature based abilities
YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT IF
- You don’t like slow stompy decks
- You prefer combo decks
- You’re not a fan of Dragons. HOW COULD YOU! YOU’RE THE MONSTER, NOT THEM!
The Ur-Dragon cometh! Run! Save the women, children and livestock! The Ur-Dragon is like the grand daddy of all dragons. It makes your dragons cheaper, it’s a massive beater and then it comes down from the heavens, any dragon that attacks draws you a card for each and then put a permanent from you hand… wait, I have to read this again. Oh dear, yeah it says to play a permanent. Well, this is going to get rough when The Ur-Dragon drops Ramos down for free or any permanent in this deck.
Out: Time to cut some chaff that’s not on flavour or just not good enough. Please remember that this is just a guide and you will have to make some choices on your own. I say this mainly because the manabases of all the decks could use an overhaul and some mass untargeted removal could be applied.
In: We will be using a basis of $25 USD and Card Kingdom for links to the cards
That’s all for Dragons as we have hit the limit on our budget! So, that means BONUS ROUND! Here are some suggestions not included in our budgeted amount:
