Here There Be Dragons..(Modern)

If you remember, waaaaay back in September of last year,  I posted our very first deck list, Mono Red Dragons.  It was a pretty fun deck, great for casual games against non-aggro, and tough to handle in the late game.  Well, consider this deck it’s faster little brother.  It really shines in the mid game as opposed to the late, with enough removal to make sure the game gets there.  The basic strategy is to use the aforementioned removal spells to keep the other side of the board clear, play Dragonspeaker Shaman and/ or Dragonlord’s Servant to get Stormbreath Dragon or Thunderbreak Regent out on Turn 3 and 4..and then keep dropping multiple copies of each every turn after.  Don’t be afraid to take damage, the key is to keep your Shaman and Servants alive in order to play dragons faster.  I’ve tested this deck list out against a modern Splinter Twin, a modern Slivers, and a mono green ramp and have seen success.
