Reanimation engine, thy name is Scion of the Ur-Dragon.

In a dedicated Commander deck, it wouldn't be unreasonable to toss a lot of your Dragons into the graveyard just to bring them all back out with such toys as Debtors' Knell, Immortal Servitude, and Rise of the Dark Realms. Complement those with simpler spells like Beacon of Unrest, Dread Return, and Vigor Mortis. Of course, there's always the tribal option in cards like Bladewing the Risen and Teneb, the Harvester as well.

Long story short, pack some reanimator if you make a deck with Scion of the Ur-Dragon. You won't regret it.

I have this guy as a general in my favorite EDH deck. I find that Dragon Tyrant is just about the best dragon to pull with him!

He's not a shapeshifter because this ability is beyond shapeshifting.

He's an avatar because he is basically the embodiment of all dragons.

Black has awesome combo power with this and Conspiracy. Black can also bring dudes easily back from the dead so investing in black cards with this baby in the deck is a double win.

Guy at gamestore: You play EDH? Who's your general?

The combo doesn't work with Teneb, because when Scion reanimates Teneb he IS Teneb and the legend rule kills them both. He's still an amazing card, perfect in a reanimator deck.

Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.

This card references the Primevals, a cycle of Legendary dragons from Invasion, which include Darigaaz, the Igniter, Crosis, the Purger, Rith, the Awakener, Dromar, the Banisher and Treva, the Renewer. Their relationship to the Ur-Dragon is mentioned on the attendant cycle (Darigaaz's Attendant, Crosis's Attendant, Rith's Attendant, Dromar's Attendant, Treva's Attendant)

The Ur-Dragon is the name for the collective spirit of all dragonkind. This card represents a living embodiment, or avatar, of that god-dragon collective.

It's been said several times, but yeah, the Scion loses his ability to turn into other dragons once his first ability resolves.

Looking at the card, it states you need to search for a dragon type permanent card (Land, Creature, Artifact, Enchantment, Planeswalker) instants and sorceries are not permanents. He does have the ability to get around championing things though.

That's a great idea, I likes me a 2 mana Phyrexian dreadnought with no drawback (among other absurdly large creatures). That or 2 mana graveyard reshuffling with Emrakul, not to mention the Annihilator 6.

First off, love your username, LoT = my favorite General XD. Secondly, yes you may use his ability in response to itself as many times as you have mana to activate it. You'll be able to chuck whatever dragon/changeling permanents you deem fit into the graveyard. Once the abilities resolve, you'll see him glowing funny colors and ch... (see all)

Here's a way to one-hit kill with him the turn after he comes out.

Activate his copy ability twice, and let the first one resolve, binning Moltensteel Dragon. With the other copy ability still on the stack, pay 12 life to give him +6/+0. Then let the second copy ability activate, turning him into Skithryx, the Blight Dragon. The +6/+0 is unaffected by the copying, so you're hitting for 10 infect damage for the win.
