Darigaaz Reincarnated

Legendary Creature — Dragon

Flying, trample, haste

If Darigaaz Reincarnated would die, instead exile it with three egg counters on it.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if Darigaaz Reincarnated is exiled with an egg counter on it, remove an egg counter from it. Then if Darigaaz has no egg counters on it, return it to the battlefield.

Darigaaz Reincarnated Discussion

If I don’t discuss a card, it’s because that card didn’t feel like a card I’d want to play, or I didn’t think it was a viable commander. If I miss any really good options for my commander or leader, please let me know.

Adun Oakenshield TL?

Bartel Runeaxe

Darigaaz Reincarnated

Darigaaz, the Igniter

Gyrus, Waker of Corpses TL???

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King

Kresh the Bloodbraided

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper

Shattergang Brothers

Thantis, the Warweaver

Vaevictis Asmadi

Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Wasitora, Nekoru Queen

Xira Arien TL?

Honestly, looking through this list, most of these cards don’t appeal to me. That said, there were a few that could work if I really felt that I needed to go with Jund. First, Gyrus, Waker of Corpses is really interesting to me as a leader. I could use it as my commander, I guess, but it just isn’t that interesting as an effect to me. I want my commander to have more of an impact on the game than being big, and allowing me to reuse creatures for a turn. I like how it allows me to essentially dash in creatures from my graveyard, retriggering any enter the battlefield effects they may have, and another cool feature that Gyrus, Waker of Corpses has is that it doesn’t really lose value when I recast it from the command zone. I’d much rather spend 9 mana on an 9/9 than spend 12 mana on a 6/5 that’s only really worth 6 but I’m looking for a bit more in a commander, especially since I’ll probably be able to shuffle my graveyard into my library multiple times throughout the game. If I were to use a Jund commander, Gyrus, Waker of Corpses is there, but I know that there’s better commanders for me to choose from. As a leader, however, Gyrus, Waker of Corpses seems awesome. For one thing, he kind of breaks the 3 mana limit by having X in his cost, and bringing cards back from the graveyard is much more useful in a format that doesn’t have any Twilight's Call or Aphetto Dredging in it. For now, I think I’m going to move on, but I may come back to him later when I’m searching for my leader.

Kresh the Bloodbraided intrigues me. I can just imagine… Kresh the Bloodbraided is on the board. I also have a Dread Shade , and a Urabrask the Hidden out. My opponents have full boards with 4+ creatures each; the collective power of all my opponents’ creatures is something like 45. It’s my turn. I draw. GASP! In my hand, I now have Plague Wind . I cast it. SUDDENLY, all of my opponents’ creatures are gone except for one Seraph of the Suns (dang) and I have a 44/44 legendary human warrior, my 3/3 shade, and a praetor that makes all my opponents’ creatures enter tapped. Those are the kind of game-changing plays that I like. Kresh the Bloodbraided is definitely an interesting commander, but I really doubt that I’ll be using him, because besides Plague Wind and In Garruk's Wake , there aren’t any cards that really use him to his full potential. Unless there’s some way to destroy a lot of creatures in a short amount of time, he’ll never get very big, because a 10/10 is a threat that most players can kill and will kill before it becomes much bigger than that. So, Kresh the Bloodbraided just won’t be a very good commander 97.9% of the time (I calculated it) and, in the other 2.1% of games, I have the potential to dominate for a few turns until someone kills Kresh the Bloodbraided through literally any means other than damage, because Jund doesn’t have any decent counterspells besides Avoid Fate , and Regenerate isn’t a very good answer to Murder .

I like the sound of Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , but without much mill in these colors (besides Altar of the Brood , Waste Not , and Dread Summons , but 3/99 cards isn’t enough to make a mill deck), I don’t see much of a reason to play it. Sure, if one of my opponents plays a Sensei's Divining Top , I can get rid of it and hope that they don’t draw their Paradox Engine , but aside from getting rid of douchey cards I don’t see much of a purpose in playing Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire .

This concludes my exploration of Jund commanders, and since the only options for a Jund leader, besides Gyrus, Waker of Corpses , are Adun Oakenshield and Xira Arien , I don’t think I’ll be using these colors unless I decide to use Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder as my commander, and Gyrus, Waker of Corpses as my leader.

Hey you seem to have a little oversight. Darigaaz Reincarnated requires green mana but you have no source of it in your deck. Although Ilharg, the Raze-Boar and Sarkhan, Dragonsoul can both theoretically cheat it out you only have 1 of each so 9 out of 10 times it will be a dead card.

About that - main problem here is that you want to have too much high CMC cards that make 'cool things' but it's better to settle for less and actually get there. Playing Dragon tribe already fills your high end of the curve so we need to focus on lower CMC interaction/ramp/draw to get to cast as many of the mentioned creatures as possible.

That's why Crucible of Fire and Sight of the Scalelords are bad but you seem to discover another way to win besides fight with big beaters - it's reanimator strategy. So I'd rather get 4/4 or 5/5 Dragon with Animate Dead for AND do something else than cast one of those enchantments and pass, hoping that it survives on board. I personally use reanimation with Dragon Tempest as a secondary strategy to kill as many people as possible with damage from dragons coming back and then smash the rest with them, since they get haste.

Abrupt Decay has that advantage of hitting NONLAND permaments... so creatures, enchantments, artifacts, planeswalkers all go down. While Vraska's Contempt is overpriced Path to Exile in black since planeswalkers can be overrun with Dragons and 2 life gain is negligible. It's not about hitting someone's Craterhoof Behemoth or in your case Hellkite Overlord it's about dealing with Sylvan Library / Phyrexian Arena , Chromatic Lantern or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard that get them there. And that's the lesson that I learned few months back and made drastic changes to my deck - Bow before Draconic King!!! | *WAR* Update. It's still a Dragon deck but has everything that early game requires so I can still compete with better tuned decks of others.

That's why for changes I'd propose:

I think that's it for now, it's mostly about getting as much during your turns for as low cost as possible. I'd also rethink these cheap mana doublers but that's me and I don't like helping others, since they can and they will gain advantage of that and beat me. Early dorks/rocks actually can feel like mana doubling and work only for you.

If you want to know more about getting better at EDH I'd recommend checking out CMDR Central and EDHRec podcasts on youtube - https://articles.edhrec.com/commander-central-ep75-settling-for-less/. Also EDHRec page has great articles posted daily, one of them is about Evolving Wilds: https://articles.edhrec.com/in-the-margins-evolving-wilds-terramorphic-expanse/

Baral's Expertise doesn't allow you to cast cards with a CMC greater than 4, meaning that you can't cast cards like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer or Darigaaz Reincarnated off of it.

Flooremoji: i wouldn't really say grixis is the "best" color combo for dragons. bolas is really the only thing blue has to offer for a dragon deck, which is pretty unimpressive imo if you can't flip it. i myself prefer a jund deck with Darigaaz Reincarnated and Assassin's Trophy

Love the jund midrange list! +1!

However, this list is missing a few main pieces. To start, Circuitous Route , Darigaaz Reincarnated , Electrodominance , and Awaken the Erstwhile all pull the rest of the deck away from where I think it wants to be, with a number of efficient threats and removal.

The landbase is a little weird, mainly for the gates for C-Route, but I'd drop all of them, 1x Swamp and 2x Mountain for 4x Rootbound Crag , 4x Dragonskull Summit , and 1x 2x Woodland Cemetery . This puts us one over, at 23 lands, which is where I think the deck wants to be.

Otherwise, dropping Darigaaz Reincarnated s and Electrodominance s entirely, slotting in the last of the lands and a pair of Lava Coil , a 1 of Cast Down , and a Assassin's Trophy , dropping some Gruul Beastmaster s and Circuitous Route s for Llanowar Elves and more Bedevil s, and I think this would be amazing!
