Cool deck. I run a Naya cycling deck but it looks like black and blue bring a lot to the table.

Suggestions: Fluctuator!, Curator of Mysteries. Nimble Obstructionist, Scion of Darkness, Decree of Silence, Complicate, Grave Upheaval, Limits of Solidarity, Slice and Dice.

Tyrannical Fury!!!

That's my casual build of Karrthus. My mana base isn't too expensive but works pretty well. I highly suggest you run at least 37 lands.

Recommended additions: Wood Elves, Cultivate, Dragon Tempest, Scourge of Valkas

Cards I recommended you take out:

Grave Upheaval -> take this out and up your land count

Crucible of Fire -> this isn't a bad card but I think anthem's are better when you make 3+ bodies per turn that will benefit from said anthem. You have to pump dragons out 1 by 1, making this card to slow imo.

Diabolic Revelation - 6 mana to tutor 1 card? If you can't get Demonic Tutor, run Increasing Ambition over this.

Mogis, God of Slaughter - Mogis doesn't help your dragons and will, at most, be a slight nuisance to your opponents. This could be something like Skyshroud Claim which would help you get your dragons out faster.

Cryptolith Rite - similar to the crucible, I don't think you'll be churning out bodies enough to make this card worth it. How about Farseek instead?

I'll add more thoughts later, got work to do now.

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons

Abhorrent Overlord - generates chump blockers

I recommend leaning in on the reanimator side of the deck: Magister of Worth, Karmic Guide, Victimize, Bladewing the Risen, Grave Upheaval, and Demon of Dark Schemes come to mind.

More manaramp could also serve you well, Mana Geyser always over preforms for me, Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Hedron Archive and Thran Dynamo tend to put in work as well.

Also, Master of Cruelties for the lulz

Added a couple Landcycling cards, because during test Grave Upheaval was recurred enough that it made up for the infantile landbase. I intend to add more removall and modal spells on friday. Ive won a large number of games with swinging with Kess, as the removal keeps the skys clear for her.
