Windgitrogborygnath Vaevic'Kuar

Commander / EDH* elgosu1337


Here's a Lord Windgrace deck that also features ALL the other lands-matter commanders in Jund. This deck is full of creative ways to increase landfall or just straight up get infinite landfall or infinite Dakmor Salvage discard to Borborygmos Enraged with The Gitrog Monster. Titania, Protector of Argoth and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper get really happy when animated lands die, like from infinite Nim Deathmantle sacrifices. It's also a Primal Surge deck with Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire because why not. It's done some really crazy things in playtests so far, but I'm not an experienced lands player, so do share any suggestions for the archetype, especially lands to include.

Thanks DrkNinja! Fresh Meat is an awesome suggestion, since it also counts tokens (unfortunately Caller of the Claw, Ogre Slumlord, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, and Gutter Grime don't), and it adds up all the creatures that died if there were multiple rounds of removal and sacrifice that turn. I definitely have to find a spot for Fresh Meat.

Faith's Reward was already included, with Thrilling Encore as another really good mass recursion spell.

Polybius on Lord of the Flies: Sek'Kuar Lands Primer

Very cool decklist, +1 from me!

I've looked extensively at your and VesuvanDoppelbanger's decklists and I like them a lot! I've run Sek'Kuar for around two years now and have had a lot of success with a more token-centric build, focused around combos. I'm looking to retool my deck to fit somewhere in between where you both are.

Combos like Ashnod's Altar + Cryptolith Rite + Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper + Nether Traitor have put in serious work for me. Making infinite tokens and mana is almost too easy with Sek boi! My main problem is if I don't pull off an infinite combo I get hated off the table or have a bunch of creatures that don't impact the board enough to kill three other players immediately.

What are your thoughts on Obliterate, Sylvan Awakening, and Jolrael, Empress of Beasts? They seem like they could add a lot to a "lands matter" theme.

Also, how has World Shaper performed for you? I have one I could add but I'm iffy on putting him in.

SteelSentry on Are there tiers for multiplayer?

1 month ago

cdkime is pretty spot on with the tier measurements. The commander isn't exactly the best measurement (I have a Jund deck that would probably be the center of attention with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, but I use Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and fly under the radar), but it can definitely be used as a baseline. It's a little difficult if it's a one-off game, but if you play with the same playgroup or the same LGS you can get a feel for the general power level of the group, if not each person individually.

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

I just saw the spoiler for that card. I don't think that it is exactly what we are looking for, but it has the potential for netting a few cards in exchange for sacrificing some unnecessary creatures. My initial impression is to rate it similar to Champion of Wits in terms of overall usability in Animar. It can gain long-term value but the mana requirement for its ability would really slow early-game plays down.

However, the card should find a nice home in the casual Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper deck that I've been intending to build for a while now. I like sacrifice and graveyard shenanigans.

Ever thought about using Tana and Bruse as generals? They might be more effective token generators than Marath.

These cards might interest you too: Green Sun's Zenith, Primal Command, Signal the Clans, Ivy Lane Denizen, Eldritch Evolution, Aura Mutation, Grand Warlord Radha, Druids' Repository, Tendershoot Dryad, and Death's Presence.

You got me thinking... a Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper (Thromok) deck might be cool. Could run things like Lightning Coils, Grim Haruspex, Smothering Abomination, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Abhorrent Overlord, and all those nice black tutors for grabbing the hidden general.

The following cards may be of interest to you: Charnelhoard Wurm, Gleancrawler, Fleshbag Marauder, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Caustic Caterpillar, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Stalking Vengeance. Neat deck! Don't see Adun often. +1 from me

majorappliance on Sek'Kuar, The Meat Master

i think that with Sylvan Awakening it would be hilarious to run Omnath, Locus of Rage since the lands are now elementals. those 2 effects with both a Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and Titania, Protector of Argoth (since the lands are not tokens and are still lands) add a sac outlet and hilarity ensues.
