Game #222: Scion of the Ur-Dragon 2.0
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Radha, Heir to Keld; General Tazri
Result: Neutral Loss
Some Highlights (as I am writing this almost 7 months after playing the game).
- This is the first game to be recorded in the “Book of Simic” (my second moleskine in this project).
- I got to Deathrender in a few dragons, and Tasigur.
- Radha had a turn 6 Kozilek, and did a Scourge of Valkas/Dragon Broodmother
- Mid game, I traded my non-Japanese Scourge of Valkas for Radha’s Japanese one.
- I did cast Scion at least once, and it became a Scourge of Nel Toth (but I died that turn). I was at 1 life.
About the Deck
This is a Dragonlance Chronicles theme deck. Scion has a cool Takhisis Proxy (though I might just use the Ur-Dragon once this year’s Commander decks come out). It has:
- 3 mono-colored dragons of each of the five colors.
- 5 Viashino (1 one of each color) as “Draconians”.
- Several Black Knights (Knights of Takhisis) and Ihsans Shade (“Lord Soth”)
- 5 B/x Legends as the “Dragon Highlords” (Sivitri Scarzam, Grenzo, Tasigur, Teysa (new), Vhati-il Dal)
- A few other little things
