Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Scion of the Ur-Dragon EDH Deck Commander
It has taken me long enough, but I am finally here with my first EDH deck article. I love this format. EDH, is, in my opinion, the most accessible format in MTG, and the one that can be tailored to fit the competitive nature of any play group. Standard is fun and exciting with the new sets, constant push for deck superiority, and the ever evolving meta, but what most people that do not play EDH do not understand is that EDH has all the same perks. As I was watching the new spoilers come up my opinions were two fold; one was that as a standard player, and frequenter of FNM, what was the new meta going to be like and what pieces from the Ravnica block would fit well with this one, and two what new bombs and utilities can I work into my various EDH decks. This was my first EDH build, and largely the one I pull out to just goof around and have fun with. My commander is Scion of the Ur-Dragon and while most Scion decks focus on commander damage, I built this to be more versatile. If need be I can simple play dragons and dominate the board without Scion.

Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Creatures (22)
Spells (20)
Artifacts (15)
Planeswalkers (4)
Lands (36)

As I said at the start of the article this deck offers a great deal of versatility when it comes to the win condition. I can either use Scion and go for commander damage which usually goes the way of Nicol Bolas to Shivan Dragon to Dragon Tyrant. The other option is to use all my Ramp and Mana fixing to just cast tons of dragons and go for a general damage win.
