Unlife on Death to the Touch

I’ll be honest, I was just messing around trying to find a new jund commander. It’s either this or lands, but I’ll try to keep updating the decklist at least.

bogtrog those are both things I did not consider, I’ll defiently add them in. Probably cut Basilisk Collar and Quietus Spike for them

gwumbelbehr it’s an unfinished deck based on a quick look through gatherer. Memorial and muse both need a spot and I love Angel's Trumpet, never seen it before and now I need it for this deck. I may throw an Arena in but I’m not as interested in fight cards. Paradox Engine is nice but it’s also gonna paint a huge target on an uncompetative deck. Any ideas what to cut for muse, memorial and trumpet?

Gleeock garruk is already in there but I think another planeswalker could help. Any ideas which? I’m trying to have ones that make Deathtouch creatures or maybe give creatures Deathtouch

As a general question, should I add some mass doublestrike effects? First strike and Deathtouch is deadly

run a Quietus Spike, Helm of the Host, or Blade of Selves if you want to be filthy with virtus the veiled

Skull Storm upsets me. Thats way to much mana for a that kind of effect.

Board whips 4-5 mana. Half someones life isnt that hard or expensive Quietus Spike, Heartless Hidetsugu, Havoc Festival, and Raving Dead all do this for 6 or less. I get its a sorcery but eh... Do or Die would have been a far better reprint. That card is probably only going to be a Barter in Blood most of the time.

I know this page isn't up to date but here's what I'd do:

I would add Mind's Eye 100%. I think a Sun Titan and Armageddon would be worth it. The expensive Equipment cards become better with more focus, like Puresteel Paladin. I'm not sold on Leonin Shikari for such a creature-light deck.

Speaking of which, Relic Seeker might be worth it to quickly get the boots or Hammer of Nazahn or something.

Maybe swap Disenchant with Forsake the Worldly in case you need the draw? Return to Dust is the obvious upgrade. Duelist's Heritage is nice because it isn't an aura and has funny political value on other peoples' turns.

I'm thinking that you should perhaps plan on a more late-game strategy--i.e. more expensive Equipments with bigger bonuses. Seems that the quick win is only viable in 1v1. Perhaps you may want to keep the deck 1v1 only?

I might add Prowler's Helm, Blackblade Reforged, Darksteel Plate (cheaper than ever--I don't think you can get enough Indestructible), maybe a Basilisk Collar or Quietus Spike.

I would say drop Armored Ascension, Ethereal Armor (maybe), Serra's Embrace, Unquestioned Authority, Mesa Enchantress, Umbra Mystic, Helm of the Gods. That should open up room for more artifact synergy or more interaction (removal). I'm not sold on Piston Sledge, Hero's Blade, Vorrac Battlehorns, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Ring of Thune.

Highland Lake also run more then 33 god damn lands, Pyromancer's Goggles can come out, Bident of Thassa can come out for a deck like this you want competetive cards thats not it, Hammer of Purphoros trade for Lightning Greaves i'll get you a pair, Overwhelming Denial is not a good counterspell, Quietus Spike trade for a Basilisk Collar.

I'm thinking of building this deck for a fun low budget deck. You should consider adding high powered equipments that don't add power or toughness such as Quietus Spike, Captain's Claws, and Bloodforged Battle-Axe.

Honestly, I would run just a few more equipments. Maybe Quietus Spike and the other sword. But the rest should just be control. Esper is pretty good at that. All in all, I kinda like it.
