So there are some things you could do, but not really just in terms of card draw:

First of all, you have a lot of kinda suboptimal pirates here. I think maybe giving up the pirate them might be best.

Maybe switch them in for a lot of sacable creatures or death effects?

Also, card draw in Jund has some interesting choices

Had an altar in before. It’s not bad but Greater Good fits better

_Delta_ you're right the spoiler from Guilds of Ravnica are just amazing. I will test sosme of them surely.

Scytec : thank you very much for all the suggestion, I really like 3 of them Ramunap Excavator, Nighthowler and Greater Good. I just need to figure out what to remove. For all the milling suggestion i not a really big fan of that kind of strategie. I know it's more like a alternate winning condition but I prefer a lethal with Nighthowler on Meren.

For Triskelion and gravepact I have other deck that use them so i tried to have diversity among my deck that why a use Walking Ballista and Dictate of Erebos .

Dark Depth it'S a bit expensive and i very satisfy with Westvale Abbey  Flip and the interaction with Awakening Zone and From Beyond.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip it's a big diaspointement because she always obliterated before i have a chance to use her. hope you have better luck. I'l probably try Vraska, Golgari Queen instead.

Rushwood Herbalist is good for returning creatures from the graveyard and putting even more in. Crawling Sensation + Crop Sigil is are good to mill the top of your libary. Ramunap Excavator is good for when accidently mill your lands. also more fetch lands can be good. plus you can sacrafice stuff with Greater Good and bring it back while drawing cards off of greater good and getting those etbs ( enter the battlefied triggers) all over agian.

Metachemist on Xenagos all out to kill

Swap Atarka, World Render with Xenagos, God of Revels as the Commander. She is way scarier as a source of Commander damage, especially if you get Xengos on the field, as she then becomes a one shot one kill Commander.

I'd also add in some ways to crack back against board wipes. Altar of Dementia is a personal favorite of mine. Oh you cast Rout at instant speed in my combat, cool lemme sack my board to the Altar and you can mill 30+ cards. My personal best is making some mill 78 cards using it. Greater Good is also fantastic for this as it gives you card draw. On a related note of card draw Lifecrafter's Bestiary would be a good fit here as well.

WiredTiger on My academy rector vs opponent's ...

1 week ago

This happened last week, but I like to know the specifics so I can have a better understanding of the game. The other day, my friend and I, were playing each other one on one with our commander decks. I was using my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck and he was using his Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck.

My board state had Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Weathered Wayfarer, and Academy Rector in play. During my friends turn he had Mimic Vat and Greater Good in play, he casted Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, and then past the turn. In response I sacked my three creatures to Teysa's ability to exile his commander. He says that everything should've gone on the stack in a way where he could put the Academy Rector under the Mimic Vat and then sac his commander to the Greater Good so that he prevents the Academy trigger and have his commander imprinted on the Mimic Vat. I've looked into it, but couldn't find a direct answer, but I believe the stack should've been put on the stack like this:

  1. Teysa's ability
  2. Mimic's ability
  3. Academy's ability

Then I would've had priority to play any instants then pass, my friend could do something, and then the Academy's ability would resolve first. Do I have a proper understanding or is my friend right?

Thanks Voke1012.

Greater Good is already in the deck since the beginning. Crop Sigil might be worth testing.

really good deck. I find that Crop Sigil and Greater Good are really good espically early game and still holds value later on.
