Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Discussion

Hey! Love the deck, it's been a huge inspiration for me over the past 6 months or so as I've transitioned my own Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper list into a lands/value hybrid shell.

Have you considered Kamahl, Fist of Krosa? I know it takes some effort to do a mass sacrifice as compared with, say Natural Affinity, but I have great success with him due to the versatility as either a token buffer or land->creature enabler.

DarkStarStorm i had similar ambitions at one point. It is still a thought in the back of my mind. And I think it depends on if you want heavy stax or heavy token generation or something in between those. Other strategies of course work too but those seem to apply the best. I would automatically remove Kresh the Bloodbraided from the list since he wants high power dying and -1/-1 counters hurts that.

In no particular order I think these are the options that work:

Adun Oakenshield- would help bring back your stuff that dies to -1/-1.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher- always great with a token strategy.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- things should be dying a lot and this is another great token producer.

Shattergang Brothers- slow but solid stax strategy.

Wasitora, Nekoru Queen- another good stax commander, not sure it is as good as shattergang though.

Xira Arien- when all else fails draw cards!

Personally I really like the Shattergang Brothers or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper.

I've been brewing The Scorpion God and would always look across the fence and notice that the grass is pretty green for negative counter synergies with Hapatra. Let's get this discussion going! What would be the best Jund commander to tear down the fence and meld the three colors together for the ultimate negative counter deck!?

consider Bone Shredder, Farhaven Elf, Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Grim Haruspex, and Pawn of Ulamog which I play in Meren

I know if I were to build this I'd build it around creatures that like things dying like Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and things that die as part their cost like Bone Shredder and Dawntreader Elk

Nice take on a favorite general of mine! I like that your comboes are not particularly "all-In" - most combo Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper builds, (including my own build!Sek'Kuar, Combo-Grinder) are mostly about the turn-lands-into-creatures and sac for a win build. Yours feels much more "Jundy" which is very cool.

One suggestion that I have had GREAT success with - Dosan the Falling Leaf is an absolute house. Makes comboing off basically a guarantee. It can act as your City of Solitude #2, and can be grabbed by creature tutors which is nice upside.

Happy saccing!

This is a really sick use of Sek'kuar! I like the inclusion of old forgotten gems like Phyrexian Purge! Considerign the inclusion of land animate spells like Jolrael, would inclusing mass land destruction like Boom/Bust not be effective? You get Graveborn tokens, they lose their entire landbase? Fiery Confluence's first mode is the only way I see you dispatching these animated lands.

I brewed a Sek'kuar Shadowborn Apostle deck built around comboing off with Razaketh, the Foulblooded! Here's the link :)

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is an insanely powerful Jund commander when paired with sacrifice outlets... but what really lets my deck go off is the haste he puts onto the board (massing tokens then using spells like Cryptolith Rite to turn these bodies into mana, furthuring our combo). I like the idea your deck is going :)

Kholan95 on Jarad, Golgari Vore Lord EDH

It's funny; I have a similar history in the EDH format as you. I started out (if you can count it) making a stupid mash of my decks/cards to make a Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper with Savra and some weird token generation and a lot of sack outlets. After that night, I decided Golgari was the way to go, and I ordered that Izzet v. Golgari deck, and built Jarad. I think I'm probably a Johnny at heart so as soon as I started using the Dredge mechanic, I found it intriguing, building a Savra stacks Dredge deck with cards like Possessed Portal and Vengeful Pharaoh. It was fun, but hard to win with. I inadvertently created my first infinite combo and realized that's where its at. I went back to Jarad, took a tip or two from my Thraximundar zombie tribal, and Frankenstein'ed my Savra. I stayed with this deck as my main for a while, till Sidisi, Brood Tyrant came out. I saw Dredge as a viable mechanic in EDH and went for it. Iv'e tweaked it a lot since then, but the brother sister combo of Jarad and Savra have always had a place in my heart and decks.
