Adun Oakenshield Discussion

DrukenReaps on Jund -1/-1 Commander!!

3 months ago

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Vial Smasher the Fierce- This seems like it would be pretty good. Reyhan would give you some +1/+1 counters that you can place on your own stuff to get rid of the -1/-1 that inevitably gets on your stuff depending on how you built the deck. Vial Smasher is just a good card.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- would be my second choice if you can take advantage of the tokens.

Xira Arien or Adun Oakenshield- these two are pretty much all purpose so they work I guess if you don't want the above suggestions.

If you have a consistent play group and they are willing to bend the rules you could maybe treat Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God as though they have partner. Only if you have a consistent play group though.

I was wondering if you'd considered doing something similar with Adun Oakenshield? I've been trying to find some sort of competitive line with this commander.

DarkStarStorm i had similar ambitions at one point. It is still a thought in the back of my mind. And I think it depends on if you want heavy stax or heavy token generation or something in between those. Other strategies of course work too but those seem to apply the best. I would automatically remove Kresh the Bloodbraided from the list since he wants high power dying and -1/-1 counters hurts that.

In no particular order I think these are the options that work:

Adun Oakenshield- would help bring back your stuff that dies to -1/-1.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher- always great with a token strategy.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- things should be dying a lot and this is another great token producer.

Shattergang Brothers- slow but solid stax strategy.

Wasitora, Nekoru Queen- another good stax commander, not sure it is as good as shattergang though.

Xira Arien- when all else fails draw cards!

Personally I really like the Shattergang Brothers or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper.

I've been brewing The Scorpion God and would always look across the fence and notice that the grass is pretty green for negative counter synergies with Hapatra. Let's get this discussion going! What would be the best Jund commander to tear down the fence and meld the three colors together for the ultimate negative counter deck!?

Thanks for the suggestions dbpunk. I originally had Meren of Clan Nel Toth in here but she is surprisingly difficult to find so I gave up haha. Adun Oakenshield actually plays a very good impersonation of her, though not quite as good.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest doesn't really fit the what the deck is trying to do though. Yes I plan to be sac'ing numerous creatures, but in most cases when I start sac'ing creatures it is to combo out or in response to a board wipe so his ability doesn't really do much in this deck.

Ambush Commander is an interesting idea, though I would probably use something like Rude Awakening in stead. I have found at times that I have a TON of lands with not too much action in my hand, so a card like that might be helpful. I'll see how it plays in the deck.

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.
