Jarad's Orders Discussion
4 days ago
The mana curve seems high given the general cost of the creatures in this deck. Access to them comes relatively cheap through cards like: Animate Dead, Necromancy, Survival of the Fittest, Entomb, Reanimate, Victimize, Zombify, Epiphany at the Drownyard, Grisly Salvage, Buried Alive, Chill of Foreboding, Commune with the Gods, Dread Return, Dread Summons, Gather the Pack, Jarad's Orders, Life from the Loam, Endless Obedience, Boneyard Wurm, Dimir Doppelganger, Fauna Shaman, Ghoultree, Golgari Grave-Troll, Dakmor Salvage, Hell's Caretaker, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Lotleth Troll, Mortivore, Necrotic Ooze, Nemesis of Mortals, Prized Amalgam, Splinterfright, Tarmogoyf.
If you look at all these cards you'll realize that this deck is designed to run on 4 - 5 mana, at most. Which I've never had a problem getting onto the field. Mana rocks and lands just take up space that I could use for more destructive entities.

@paradox23 Yea, I never use koko anyway, and the same goes for Windborn Muse. They will get replaced.
What would your opinion be if I just went all in with the swaps and did this?
Also, Magister of Worth has proven to be way more useful than I first expected. The vote seems that it never goes your way, but more than often is a board wipe you can just pull from the yard for 6 mana over and over again.

Here's what I think. Out: Kokusho, the Evening Star, he's not really there for anything but making people hate you and can be replaced with bigger and better things; Magister of Worth,If the vote doesn't go your way what happens? You could spend this slot with a more useful card; Windborn Muse, Get rid of this garbage that you're not realistically going to want to cast if you have a spell in your hand; Murderous Cut, can be really good, but I don't thin you need the extra creature removal; Jarad's Orders, I think there are better creature tutors but I could see this one being good enough for the deck if you want to all-in combo every game; Liliana Vess, I know our playgroup and if you tutor with this and the board isn't empty you will die. In: Living Death, Put it in; Eladamri's Call, this is the better creature tutor; Hermit Druid, spills cards faster that anything else you have and "tutors" your combos into the grave; Meren of Clan Nel Toth, the best green-black graveyard-matters creature I can think of; Unburial Rites, for when you spill that Iona or Elesh Norn into the graveyard, can be cast twice for double the fun; Dread Return, it's banned in modern for a reason, it makes graveyard decks way too good. I also think that if you can find room for a Cultivate, a Golgari Grave-Troll, or even a Path to Exile that you should put them in.

I can't imagine your reasoning for putting in all the fetch lands. You don't have Titania, Protector of Argoth, nor do you have Centaur Vinecrasher or even a Crucible of Worlds. You only have 2 non basic lands that is eligible and they're Overgrown Catacombs and Bayou; and Dryad Arbor (which is effectively worse than a basic land due to summoning sickness). Otherwise, you'll just be getting basic lands which at that point you're just as well using Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, and Myriad Landscape. Thespian's Stage and Vesuva can work their way in here. Having 2 copies of a Cabal Coffers can really amp up the mana. Black Market also should be in here due to how many creatures will be dying all the time.
You certainly have a lot of mana dorks in here. I don't know why though. Late game they become more and more useless. You don't have an Exsanguinate, a Death Cloud, or a Helix Pinnacle to sink the mana into. I would suggest removing most if not all of them for better utility cards and mana ramping spells.
Primal Growth works very well with Meren. And the lands enter untapped.
As jaeger_Konig brought up, how do you expect to win if someone rids you of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Triskelion? I see no other combos or beef cards aside from terastodon, which by himself isn't that intimidating.
Caustic Caterpillar is a much better choice than Reclamation Sage. Don't let his little body fool you, it's a 1 drop, and then instant speed removal by sacrificing. Which ties into your commander's ability. Spore Frog is another little guy that shouldn't be overlooked. Another 1 drop that can repeatedly protect you until you're ready to go off.
I'm not sure why Smokestack is in here. I don't see any token generators in here aside from Terastodon, but I doubt you'd be blowing up your own permanents. Smokestack will get out of hand for you if you don't have tokens to contain it. Yes you can recur creatures with Meren, but the Smoke will outrun you quickly. Abhorrent Overlord, Ghoulcaller Gisa, and Avenger of Zendikar are all great token generators for stax effects.
Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos, and Grave Pact should all be in here. With your lack of mass board wipes (aside from Massacre Wurm which doesn't quite count), you could be easily overrun with creatures.

I understand why you have Blisterpod, it's two sacrifice fodder creatures in one card, but perhaps consider Genesis Chamber, Relentless Dead, Sanitarium Skeleton and/or regenerating skeletons instead as easy ways to ramp up experience counters in a couple turns.

words cant describe how much i love the idea of this deck.... but... I can hear the deck scream .. 'this isn't even my final form' so befor its over 9000 please check the folowing points...I see most of your cards are budget so i try to give you some good budget advices.I think you are very vulnerable to maas removals.try Phyrexian Reclamation to get access to your dead creatures.or Living Death ... lots of your creatures in graveyard? No problem!I also think you need some card draw. This deck is very mana hungry and creature based... so congratulation that wizards printed Zendikar Resurgent this is defnetly a win option for this kind of deck.since nobody likes you Well of Ideas is the perfect card for you :PCards you can also think about:Lightning Greaves (comander protection and haste for some of your awesome creatures)Eerie Interlude !!! :P Eldrazi Displacer if its not to hard that your mana base does colorless mana.and cards that no 5 color comander deck should miss in my opinion. Sword of the Animist , Kodama's Reach and Cultivate . for additional ramp play Manaweft Sliver instead of ScuttlemuttI would defnetly cut:Planar Portal , [words cant describe how much i love the idea of this deck.... but...

(not the ons that make green mana) 39 lands is very much. and Greatbow Doyensory for the crapy formatation of this post.. hope it helps :) regardsSpulverin

... Also, if you add a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, you can completely decimate everyone elses board with your Woodfall Primus, Ashnod's Altar and Grave Pact. It seems like an unattainable combo, but it really isn't when you can tutor with Jarad's Orders and Buried Alive
