Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund Discussion

Lordeh on ur dragon deck

1 week ago

I Highly recommend Sarkhan, Fireblood as a way of looting and ramping out good dragons early.

One of my personal favorite dragons is Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as a haste enabler and to get back your cards if they get stolen.

Here is a list of other dragons/spells I use in my deck.

Dragon Broodmother + Dragon Tempest or Scourge of Valkas = heaps of damage each turn cycle.

Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire for spot permanent removal.

Dragonstorm because dragons?

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is able to flip into a solid planeswalker.

Savage Ventmaw + Hellkite Charger = 1 mana extra combat steps.

Scalelord Reckoner is good against spot removal

Just some of my favorite dragons. Some are a bit $$$$.

ThePerilousRealm, it looks tempting, however in this deck I need at minimum 20 Dragons so cutting one for similar effect is a little of a nonbo. Maybe in future WotC will create some kind of enchantment with Haste or protection and Double Strike effect like upgraded Duelist's Heritage but for now I'll stick to my winged friend.

NeonEndymion Hey man! Haven't seen you in a while. Recently I didn't change anything here since I'm unimpressed with new sets regarding this particual deck. And speaking of unimpressed here comes the newest Dragon legend... Drakuseth, Drakuseth, why can't you have Haste on your own?

I just think that 6 mana for 7/7 Flying with effect that may or may not work is on similar page with Chromium, the Mutable and as you can see neither of us uses this Dragon. Yes, it might shoot down something (or burn players since it has "any target" clause) but it requires too specific board state and I'd playtest him first to change my mind. As it is I don't know what to cut to make room and for sure it won't be Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire since he has high risk/high reward that we can later turn into low risk/high reward, which translates to constantly upgrading our boardstate while shrinking our opponents'. Removal is removal, I agree, but more often than not we want to shoot down something like Ghostly Prison or Mana Vault and creatures are of lower priority. Besides that to put it simple - potential of cheating into play another Dragon or powerful enchantment vs. burning someone for 4 and shooting down 1-2 or burning other players for 3... I think that answer here is clear.

One more thing - it might be perfect for Atarka, World Render or Lathliss, Dragon Queen , maybe even Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund decks but not for 5-color, where we already have "the best of the best" and where finding place for a new card is harder than finding a safe place in Jund.

Cuickbrownfox1, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is fine to use because you can pick up dragons from other players to make a massive swing against somebody. Of course, it depends the decks of the other players, but it's the same when we talk about the second ability of Dragonlord Kolaghan . Very situational for both cases, but to compare other conditions, you may consider that the Kaarthus has a larger body, and even if it costs more, your mana base bends to Jund, so it's not necessarially a problem (talking about this deck). But yes, you have a good argument. I only consider the playgroup in a generic way, since I usually avoid changing the deck a lot and I hardly see decks as Rat Colony for a long time

Just wondering if you would reconsider on Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund since he costs . Instead maybe add Dragonlord Kolaghan since he only costs . I know that you talk about why he's not in here (his second ability) but his first ability is good enough to excuse running him if only for that. Plus your opponents could be playing a Rat Colony or Persistent Petitioners deck which would mean that his second ability would do serious work. I personally think that Karthus' possible downside is enough of an excuse to not run him but maybe that's just me.

I would get rid of Dragonlord Atarka and replace it with either Dragonlord Kolaghan or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund . This gives you another haste effect to make their less chance that Dragons will die to removal before being able to attack. Also Atarka always seemed kinda weak in alot of situations as far as its ETB effect is concerned. If you are comfortable with the current number of haste-givers then putting in Thundermaw Hellkite will allow you to stop a flying heavy deck from blocking your attacks.

As you might have seen, i based the list on the Commanders Quarters Decklist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFrg_P5fwUs&t=14s with some additional cuts for lower budget. Jumbo Commander https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWzlgMdTrGw has also made a video on Vaevictis. If you are looking for dragon tribal, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund will be a better choice. For Jund in general, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher will be usually the strongest choice. If you want to make Vaevictis work well, you will need a strong ramp and removal package for your deck. To actually use the triggered ability of your commander, it appears that filling your graveyard with Greater Good and lots of dredge cards to then put cards on top of your library should be the most reliable way. For the weknesses of my Vaevictis deck : it is extremely centered around the commander. Therefore, I got crushed by some spotremoval and Unsummon effects and was unable to ever build a reliable board. Good luck with building him, but I simply gave up. I'll just add an additional resource for you here : MTG Muddstah https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG8Yi6I_XYjYtvFgOleqYxg is a channel for EDH gameplay and the players usually run well tuned decks.

Don't quote me on this, but I feel like the cheapest way to upgrade a dragon edh is to get more and better dragons. Some budget upgrades could be Dromoka, the Eternal , Lathliss, Dragon Queen , Intet, the Dreamer and Silumgar, the Drifting Death

Less budget are things like Hellkite Tyrant , Balefire Dragon , Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund and the notorious Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon

Rest of the things I can think of are on the more expensive side, but are fine utilities like Sarkhan the Mad , which essentially gives your dragons to blast with their power twice in the same turn. Then there is Urza's Incubator to further lower the manacosts of your dragons.

Then there are various combos which some are cheap and some not so. Cheapest one is perhaps Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead , though you need some damage dealing instant with X on the manacost, like Comet Storm to do anything with that combo.
