Adun Oakenshield

Commander / EDH B/R/G (Jund) Tokens

Trenwrek Score: 13


Basically a token deck that can grind opponents out of the game. Heads up, I won't be adding Urborg, Coffers or Temple to this deck anytime soon.

You know you have 2 copies of Dryad Arbor in the deck right?

April 16, 2012 8:01 a.m.

Trenwrek says... #4

I think thats just a problem with the way the site formats the decklists. It says there's 99 cards in the deck but the number adds to 100.

It counts the Dryad ArborMTG Card: Dryad Arbor as a creature and a land. Theres really only one in the deck.

EDH decks get really expensive quickly because you take 100 of the best cards for a specific strategy you can find. And good cards = expensive cards.

Also, the BadlandsMTG Card: Badlands, BayouMTG Card: Bayou, and TaigaMTG Card: Taiga together jack the price up by about $180.

Awesome deck. Perhaps I'll one day turn my Lyzolda, the Blood WitchMTG Card: Lyzolda, the Blood Witch into something like this.

I think you need more finishers in general though, less cutesy stuff like Summer BloomMTG Card: Summer Bloom, MulchMTG Card: Mulch, FirespoutMTG Card: Firespout could just be an EarthquakeMTG Card: Earthquake (or Rolling EarthquakeMTG Card: Rolling Earthquake preferably). As finishers, maybe just throw in the red and black Titans, they're certainly efficient. Or perhaps some ways to reanimate the finishers you've got, Animate DeadMTG Card: Animate Dead. ReanimateMTG Card: Reanimate, DeathMTG Card: Death, or even Dance of the DeadMTG Card: Dance of the Dead.

You should definitely have Cabal CoffersMTG Card: Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of YawgmothMTG Card: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Temple of the False GodMTG Card: Temple of the False God in there somewhere.

Again, awesome deck, it's near perfect +1

Thanks for being the first person with something constructive to say Wake :D Of the three (bloom, mulch, and spout) I'd have to say I can only agree on bloom really being cutesy. But when it's good, It's really good. Could see replacing it for something though. Spout gets around Gaddock TeegMTG Card: Gaddock Teeg which I feel is pretty important. As for my win-cons (Avenger, harvest, and awakening) only avenger is reanimatable. But I do have Volrath's StrongholdMTG Card: Volrath's Stronghold and Adun to get him back. Plus Eternal WitnessMTG Card: Eternal Witness, Nostalgic DreamsMTG Card: Nostalgic Dreams, RegrowthMTG Card: Regrowth and Yawgmoth's WillMTG Card: Yawgmoth's Will for him and the awakening. Harvest does a good enough job recurring itself. Urborg/Coffers has never really seemed worth it to me, plus there's always that awkward hand that just has coffers and lacks a good amount of swamps.

"Thanks for being the first person with something constructive to say Wake :D

You're welcome :) Yeah I noticed that, it was the 2nd reason why I had to comment.

Anyways, Urborg + Coffers is spicey and since you're already running Primeval TitanMTG Card: Primeval Titan, Realms UnchartedMTG Card: Realms Uncharted, Crop RotationMTG Card: Crop Rotation AND Sylvan ScryingMTG Card: Sylvan Scrying, you def want some spicy lands to go get imo, up to you though. OH, also you should have 1 or 2 of the Ravnica karoo lands (Golgari Rot FarmMTG Card: Golgari Rot Farm, Selesnya SanctuaryMTG Card: Selesnya Sanctuary, Orzhov BasilicaMTG Card: Orzhov Basilica) and here's why: if you ever have to play a land that cycles (you have all 6 I believe) a karoo land can get it back! Maybe if you ran all 3 you could even cut a land or two.

Real quick, I few more cards I would consider cutting if I were you.BitterblossomMTG Card: Bitterblossom is the worst top deck ever late-game.

Sarkhan VolMTG Card: Sarkhan Vol is a little sketch, it's his haste granting that makes him good, so maybe just run Fires of YavimayaMTG Card: Fires of Yavimaya instead.

Unless you get Worm HarvestMTG Card: Worm Harvest running I'm not sure how good Goblin BombardmentMTG Card: Goblin Bombardment is in general. Then again if you do get the combo it's pretty sick.

Where's Oblivion StoneMTG Card: Oblivion Stone, Nevinyrral's DiskMTG Card: Nevinyrral's Disk, and All Is DustMTG Card: All Is Dust? You need more board sweepers :) evenEarthquakeMTG Card: Earthquake and HurricaneMTG Card: Hurricane are playable in these colors. Two things I like about EarthquakeMTG Card: Earthquake and HurricaneMTG Card: Hurricane: 1 killing everyone including yourself feels like a victory and 2 even when you can't kill everyone, damaging everyone as best you can as a last ditch effort at least hurries the damned game up so you don't have to wait as long for the next one hehehe :)

So yeah, I may have a lot of suggestions but we're talking about 100 cards here. I wouldn't comment at all if I didn't like what the deck was doing so, again, awesome deck :D

Your deck is near perfect. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers and Temple of the False God . Genesis Wave is also a green staple. Maze of Ith is also a good card to have. otherwise, beast. +1

SwiftDeath says... #11

maybe Dragon Broodmother could be a good addition especially in multiplay.

jakerr101 says... #12

[Dark Confidant] seems pretty bad. You could draw an extra card without revealing it for only 1 life per turn with a [Phyrexian Arena]. Also, [Sek'kuar, Deathkeeper] would probably be a better general. That said, I have a Sek'kuar deck and really like yours. It's given me some cool ideas, [Hermit Druid] especially. Since your deck appears to make a lot of tokens, maybe Death Match would be an interesting addition.

jakerr101 says... #13

And card:Land's Edge might be a good way to make sure you have enough lands in your graveyard for Worm Harvest to work

August 7, 2012 3:11 a.m.

Trenwrek says... #14

The problem with Sek'kuar is that most of my creature potential is tokens. And he on triggers with nontokens. Plus Adun's ability doesn't get enough credit, honestly. It's been invaluable on numerous occasions. On Land's edge, I've never seen it before but, I used to run Seismic Assault which I feel is strictly better. Assault just never really did enough.

August 11, 2012 2:38 p.m.

zandl says... #15

Savage Lands , maybe? It's a tapped-land and you can't easily fetch it, but it gives you all three colors nonetheless.

And there's an FNM promo version of it.

Archangel113 says... #16

I swear alot of people put in tons of expensive lands to see how high they can get the price to go. Yes I know alot of them are better than standard land but still.

December 28, 2012 2:31 p.m.

Trenwrek says... #17

These lands all serve a purpose, none are selected for pricing reasons. This is not a competition to see how high I can get this price of this deck. If I could realistically add more basics I would.

December 28, 2012 11:05 p.m.

SIrcoqalot says... #18

maybe you want to add Ob Nixilis, the Fallen it's synergy with all the fetchlands you run and scapeshift can offer you an instant kill. Otherwise looks nice i run a similar deck with Xira Arien as my commander choice

January 2, 2013 11:41 a.m.

Trenwrek says... #19

One thing holding me beck from trying Ob is that he's not green. I had tried Rampaging Baloths for a similar reason. Never quite panned out. Obviously the effects are different but, I feel they'd work out similarly in this deck. Thank you for the input though.

Lhurgyof says... #20

Boseiju, Who Shelters All and the newly unbanned Kokusho, the Evening Star would be good in here.

January 9, 2013 6:01 p.m.

Trenwrek says... #21

Agree with Boseiju, kind of had been over looking it I guess, heh. Kokusho I could see in the board as a Living Wish -able Exsanguinate

January 10, 2013 12:03 p.m.

Survival of the Fittest and Fauna Shaman could be good in here.

Rofelos says... #23

I notice you're running 43 lands, that's way too may. I would suggest playing some artifact ramp such as Golgari Signet , if you have a bunch of artifacts out they can go really well with Death Cloud because you don't have to sacrifice artifacts, leaving you the only one with mana left.

August 9, 2013 2:09 p.m.

Trenwrek says... #24

I don't run artifact mana because it doesn't synergies well with the deck outside of just Death Cloud . Lands fuel my Worm Harvest , Life from the Loam ; Lotus Cobra Crucible of Worlds , Horn of Greed , multiple extra land outlets. I'm not going to cast death cloud if it would put me at a disadvantage and the deck recovers very well from it without artifact mana. Just in general I'd rather be playing a land or have a land in my hand than an artifact in either situation.

I run a similar deck that focuses more on token generation rather than gravedigging...might want to run Burn at the Stake

Well well well, you have taught me a valuable lesson today. I was unaware that off color fetches and duals were legal. Looks like I have 4 or 5 new lands for my deck.

When I first started EDH I made 2 decks. I used Adun, and Mireke. The latter won out because I am a control freak, and she offered a little more of that.

You really seem to have a grasp on your deck, but I do have a few suggestions. Beast Within Can not go wrong with this guy, any permanent removal with one green(and 2 colorless) at instant speed. Vesuva clone land. Lightning Greaves is great to protect Adun or let you beat down as soon as someone comes out. Swiftfoot Boots are along the same lines.

My favorite landfall creature, outside of the crab/cobra, is Baloth Woodcrasher . He is way better then the Rampaging Baloths . That is if you are looking for something like that.

Even thought it costs 4, Diabolic Tutor is still worth it. Also Liliana Vess , and Sorin Markov are awesome. Vess is a tutor, and Sorin brings them to 10 straight off.

Overall, great deck. +1 from me for sure.

Please check out and comment on my EDH deck, it is hard to find people that have played during the same times as me playing this format. I would love to hear suggestions you have.

Didgeridooda says... #28

Holy crap when did Adun go over 30$? I need to think about selling my cards lol.

Didgeridooda says... #29

Sorry for triple posting, but I forgot to add Harmonize . Figured I would send a few suggestions your way.
