This is one of my proudest and most brilliant creations ever, exactly for being so strong while formed in a pretty unexpected way! NEVER would I have imagined I'd be doing a FULL Dragon deck, let alone that I'd be liking it this much! This deck is kind of one of a kind in that it needs to be as close to this form as possible or it fails, yet I absolutely love how it has absolutely every game mechanic or move that I love and can do EVERYTHING!

For starters it has pretty insane mana acceleration but topped with amazing control of it what with mana bounce, indirect playing and grave revival. It has both very strong flat removal but also amazing combat initiation ability, topped off even with big multiple removal combos (Bazagaze) and alternate targeting (Odol, Beethoven). Yet on top of that the defenses are pretty strong too, very harsh attack stoppers, especially in late game when it needs to pull the big moves. After all that it still has glorious luxury abilities which are also close to my heart, best one being very hard anti-removal (I am so happy I finally got to use Infinity Dragon to perfection!) and lots of it, grave to battlefield revival and pretty strong one at that and last but not least MANABURN! The complete shutdown kind also (love to have finally mastered Bajulaterra <3).

The amount of combos, tactics and synergy you can pull from any 2 different creatures is quite amazing, basically any creature gives enormous benefits for every other one and unique combos with different advantages per card.

I went a bit fancy for the posting of the deck, with lots of 1x to showcase some cool stuff, but for maximum efficiency there are several engines that can be used such as 2x Eco Aini or going for Balga Raiser swarm or even just Bajulaterra rush. Or dayum, a Fate Dragon spam abuse (so amazing because Beethoven can take it with his effect)! I also wanted to add Forever Princess for fancy counter effects but she actually kind of went against the deck, but there are lots of other counters and techs one can play in this: Zombie Dragon blockers, Mozart, Ludwig, Wilhelm, Bolbazak EX, Eternal Meteor Kaiser, Deep Purple, Balga Raizou, Scrapper Dragon or Bolshack Superhero, Shadow Sword Yagyuu, Balgazarmas, Bolgress Bazz, Vorse and so forth.

Thanks for all the votes guys! I figured I should reply to your suggestions, let you know my thought process behind it.

I refused Wilhelm on purpose because I went with Viola Sonata. It has the same kill effect which is the core of the play and same creature body but the rest of the effects are clearly so much more powerful and give so much synergy with all the other Dragons. Also it's a lot more dangerous than Wil could ever be since I can swing it with Pixie Life however I like.

Then it's also a problem of mana. I have 9 rainbow cards, which is quite a big amount, I can't really spare more. If you have too many rainbows, especially high cost, your mana placement and topdecking becomes dangerous just when you need to play something for all the mana. You don't want those kind of risks.

Compared to that Wilhelm's mana burn is just a gimmick and I wouldn't really use him over more Viola Sonata. If I want more mana burn I'd just go with more Metal, Mildgarmus or Zalberg or something, because speed is more important in mana burning.

I built this starting with Mozart, then I added Cantaible because I realized I'd be graving myself a lot. But that was before I realized Beethoven also worked from the grave, lmfao! I still decided to keep it purely for the playing from mana, which is something I personally enjoy, my style preference, so if you want Mozart or something else Cantaible can go easy. But by my calculations Mozart shouldn't really KILL enough to warrant his incredibly expensive body that just comes too late anyway, he's the kind of card that you don't use in Dragon builds or slow decks, he's best used with indirect playing and the like.

EX and EMK are good choices, but only because they can counter-attack very well and EMK really shuts down attackers. I'll consider them but yeah, there are lots of variations this deck can have on top of the 30+ really mandatory cards, the changes just depend on what the meta is. But EMK can only go at 1 maximum, and if I want more Balga Raiser is better.

I forgot to mention them in the list, so I added some more stuff now.

This deck seems lacking in some areas, but I'll reserve judgment until I decide to try it in on DMvault. Considering I'm addicted to League of Legends right now, that might not be for a while.

Nah it kind of, but that's because you can only add so much in any one deck anyway. The idea is naturally limited, not much can be done. That's because it relies very deeply on full Dragon synergy, with Mendehelsson, Infinity Dragon and Bajulaterra especially. Not to mention great, constant support with Viola.

From what I can tell so far, early game is the only real offender, you depend a lot on that T2 mana accel and a T4 followup, especially Mendehelsson. But there's nothing that can really be fixed about it.

I always thought it was a Tier 2 deck with power boost depending on matchup, but in any case I built it mostly for the cool theme and synergies than just raw practicality. I really enjoy it when I can make very functional theme decks.

A few months ago,i came across "Lugia's Legions" and i was like "WHOA!".So i decided to do a little digging into your decklist.Imagine my surprise when i saw Symphonic
I've learned SO much from this deck,and the whole Advent Draconis trilogy is a small portion of that.
Viola Sonata is a BEAST.Personal experience withstanding,it's got incredible synergy with the entire deck.Infinity Dragon could not have found a better seat and the mana accel issue that looms ever so slightly,isn't much of a problem in most cases.Although,i must admit Babelginus & Yabasgil Skill make pretty darn good additions to the fray as well.
And Storm Kaiser XX just whoops major behinds with this framework [Note : I kinda' added Storm Hole & him ].
I could go on and on,but i'll stop at another Thank You and this
