How to Win a PTQ with Dragonlord Dromoka

Dragonlord Dromoka
If you are expecting Esper or the mirror, you need to lay the foundation with Dragonlord Dromoka

“If you’re the guy with the best technology, you’re rewarded by the Magic gods.”
-Top Level Podcast

And last week at least… Mike was the one with the best technology!

For anyone who missed it, Mike won the Salt Lake City RPTQ with a “crazy” Mono-Blue Five-color Dragons list that was born on this here podcast just a couple of weeks ago.

1st Place Utah

In this episode of Top Level Podcast Utah RPTQ winner Mike Flores joins Pro Tour Champion Patrick Chapin to talk about their Five-color Dragons deck. Which is the best dragon? What are the proper play sequences? Why are there so many one- and three-ofs?

Anyway, Mike ended up with “the blue envelope”.

The sad thing is… The blue envelope was just a stack of white papers!

“That’s how they do it nowadays. It’s your choice: You can either have a blue envelope or an invite to the Pro Tour.”

And in now-typical Top Level Podcast fashion, Michael and Patrick put together an all-new all-different build of Mono-Blue Five-color Dragons… Hopefully preserving the good matchups (Esper and Mono-Red) while getting better and more aware of Abzan Aggro and Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver.
