Adun's Pact <- the deck in question
So I Know I wanna play Something with some black (I kinda like green and white a little less-so red (unless it's Rakdos)), I like black. I was considering Saskia the Unyielding But I'm not particularly interested in her, Most of the Mardu commanders aren't catching my eye. the same goes for Grixis. So for now I decided on Adun Oakenshield but I feel the deck has no real direction. Adun is kinda vague. My deck has only one kind-of wincon (outside of just swing with random crap), Master of Cruelties / Repay in Kind and some burn/aggro. I'm excited for my one combo for if they poke me out. I just play Platinum Angel which I can combo into Repay in Kind and then Murder. then no one wins. But in the end my deck is just a pain in the butt. The commander is just there, I'm not really that interested in him, I just like the colors and some of the creatures. I've been looking/testing for awhile trying to find something that interests me. Considering my last Commander deck hasn't really impressed me unfortunately.
it's just some allies Ally Commander Rainbow Build (MoonTurtle) Just waiting for my local shop to get some of the cards in the maybeboard to upgrade it. cough cough Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Venser, the Sojourner other than that and maybe some draw power.

So, is your commander going to be a big mechanic in the way the deck plays out? Because right now, you could throw in most any other Jund commander without having much of an effect on the deck's mechanics. You already have a strong +1/+1 counter theme going, Kresh the Bloodbraided could work as the commander in that respect. But would could also work is Adun Oakenshield but may be a bit out of budget. This would not require your commander to even be on the field so you could put in someone else.
Going back to Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper you'll want cards in the deck that are going to bring creatures back from the graveyard consistently. I'd recommend Persist/Undying cards for one: Puppeteer Clique, Furystoke Giant, Cauldron of Souls or Evernight Shade, Undying Evil, Pyreheart Wolf (possible win condition with enough creatures out) and such.
Another option with Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is to use Act of Treason spells combined with sacrifice options. You get a free attacker, if they don't kill it you can sacrifice it and get a 3/1. Removal, attack, and replacement all in one. Your current card options are not set up for this though and would require a big re-work.
Seeing as you focus on big creatures and pumping them up I'm going to say try working in evasion techniques to get those creatures through. Jund can easily give you a lot of Menace, Intimidate, and Fear options in that respect. But another that you did touch on a little in the cards was cards that make your creatures do direct damage to other creatures: Ulvenwald Tracker. Green has a lot of other cards that do this, and if you are pumping creature power then those cards will go a long way in enabling board control.

So I'm building a Jund sacrifice deck around Tana, the Bloodsower and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper from the upcoming commander sets(which is why on the deck's page, I'm using Adun Oakenshield as a stand in, even though he will NOT be in the deck whatsoever). The deck is Ruthless Jund. Keep in mind this is nothing more than a rough draft to get a feel for the main engine; the deck will be subject to change after EDH 2016 releases. The main strategies are bumping up Tana's power/toughness so that she can beatdown, spawn tokens, and gain me life from Ikra Shidiqi; playing strong devour creatures in the late game that can end the game one way or another; combo-ing off of the mass devouring of my field with cards like Stalking Vengeance and Goblin Bombardment(though of course, Bombardment doesn't combo with devour, but you get the idea). Keep in mind also, that too many people in my playgroup run Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact and other such cards that are so painfully common in sacrifice decks.I want this sacrifice deck to revolve around the devour mechanic and sacrificing creatures in order to burn my enemies to close the game. So what I need then, are efficient auras and equipments for Tana, more death and sacrifice combos(remember, looking for Jund-like sacrifice[as in burn and devour], and not that of your common black necromancer), and the most efficient token generators(Tana can only spawn soooo many tokens before she runs out of opponents ;) lol). And if there is any other suggestions, let me know please! I'm new to Jund, and this style of deck, so it's definitely possible I maybe overlooking something!

Also @Lanzo493: Does that work with sundial? Because feldon reads that you sacrifice the tokens at the next end step so even if you skipped your own end step wouldn't they be sacrificed during your opponent's end step?

DeathChant17: Ah, I see.
Right now, I'm leaning towards Xenagos, God of Revels, but I'm concerned that he'll paint a target on my back. Or the aforementioned deck, which will run afoul of the deck rules and the group (forcing me to randomly choose my 99 in secret).
Surrak is ok...I'd sooner go with Intet, the Dreamer and stick Mr. Dragonclaw in the 99. Of course, I wouldn't plan to use heavy top deck manipulation.
Xira is an interesting case. I think of her, and I think of Adun Oakenshield. They're both open-ended, so I would need to gear them towards some direction.

how are Sliver Overlord in the same tier as Adun Oakenshield? i think Sliver Overlord is strong enough to be tier 2, and Adun Oakenshield could be tier 4. i may be wrong about that, but i definitely think that they should be in different tiers.

Ive built an Adun Oakenshield deck that is a blast to play. Its kind of good stuffy but the interactions within it are incredible. If you like I could write up my list and link it

Unfortunately we have at least 5 players that run 0 win con counter.dec. Today messing around I was able to blow people out of the water using jund goodstuff with Adun Oakenshield at the helm (still undefeated) and changed some people's minds. Unfortunately 2 went straight for meren and another went for Nath and was asking about stax. This is unfortunately the type of playgroup I play in. If someone wins everyone jumps on those colors or that general or that archetype and play it until someone else wins.
