Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Discussion

DrukenReaps on Jund -1/-1 Commander!!

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Vial Smasher the Fierce- This seems like it would be pretty good. Reyhan would give you some +1/+1 counters that you can place on your own stuff to get rid of the -1/-1 that inevitably gets on your stuff depending on how you built the deck. Vial Smasher is just a good card.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- would be my second choice if you can take advantage of the tokens.

Xira Arien or Adun Oakenshield- these two are pretty much all purpose so they work I guess if you don't want the above suggestions.

If you have a consistent play group and they are willing to bend the rules you could maybe treat Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God as though they have partner. Only if you have a consistent play group though.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Nether Traitor, and Phyrexian Altar

  1. Sacrifice Nether Traitor to Phyrexian Altar to add B to your mana pool
  2. Make a 3/1 Graveborn off Deathkeeper (2 Purphoros damage to everyone)
  3. Sacrifice the Graveborn Token to Phyrexian Altar to add B to your mana pool
  4. Because the token hits the graveyard, Pay B, return Nether Traitor to play from your graveyard (2 Purphoros damage to everyone)
  5. Rinse and Repeat

SteelSentry on Anyone Else??

On the Commander side of things, I feel you. My starting deck was the Kalemne precon, which I "upgraded" into a bad Iroas, God of Victory deck. I also made a goblin deck (my favorite 60-card deck for a while), and I still didn't have fun. Currently, my favorite deck is headed by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper. Now I'm trying to find a #2, trying to decide whether to cut my losses with my existing decks or retool them (or rather, its a sunk cost and I need to finally let go).

SteelSentry on Most hell like stack ever?

I used to be all on the chaos deck train, but I've started to shy away from any chaos cards that don't help the game plan (ex. Possibility Storm in Mishra, Thieves' Auction in Zo-Zu, etc). That being said, you can often have fun and crazy stacks even in "normal" games.

Ex. Last week, I was playing Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and there was a 4-color lands deck with The Gitrog Monster and Squandered Resources out. I was saccing things to Phyrexian Plaguelord to try and kill the frog, and we spent a good ten minutes each of us sacrificing permanents for value to get each other, and then he cast Second Sunrise and we did it all over again. It was a bit of a headache to work through how much value we could get, but at least 2 people at that table had fun with it.

If you don't care to be a little janky you could try Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper combo. The main combo would be Sek'Kuar + Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Murderous Redcap for infinite hasty tokens. Or even jankier would be Sek'Kuar, Pawn of Ulamog, Nim Deathmantle, and Ashnod's Altar for the same outcome as the first combo. Or you could just Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead/Necromancy/Dance of the Dead for infinite mana into a fireball effect.

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.

DrukenReaps on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

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.

DarkStarStorm on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

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!?

Here are our options:
