Jamminmagician Deckling

I really need some help on my 3 decks if you want to take a look and maybe give a few suggestions then that would be awesome! I'll also be checking out your decks too and I'll try to comment some suggestions on yours in return.

I second MadDogLai, Karthus is a way way too risky play in Dragons that gives you minimal benefit without a sarkhan ultimate. You also have dragonlord kolaghan in the deck for exactly that purpose.

VexenX this deck isn't super heavy in double green and skyshroud claim requires you to have green already, as well as 4 mana. I'd rather be using a turn 3 ramp spell which also helps to get around a later blood moon player as well. Skyshroud claim is great in 3 or even 4 colour decks especially if they're green heavy, but I wouldn't love it here.

Would say Whispersilk Cloak is better than General Kabuto helm?

Athraithe spawnsire of ulamog does not pull from a sideboard, it technically pulls from the "wishboard" which is more or less a previously agreed upon list of cards outside of the game that you have to call on when an effect asks for cards in that zone.

Cards I think are still bad here:Sarkhan Unbroken is just for lols, he's fine if you have a board to support him but he basically just says "here I am attack me till I die" and in EDH that's not doing enough I don't think.

Karthus is still a terrible card to play. There are enough reanimator effects, clone effects, steal before resolution effects etc. etc. that the second he's out of your hand and library he's a liability to you ever winning the game. Would not play.

Deathbringer Regent is slow and conditional for a wipe. Why not play Damnation or literally any wrath spell. Heck for a 6 drop you could be playing Akroma's Vengeance to wipe everything or Austere Command for versatility or Catastrophe as a spell that locks you into a winning position, or Deadly Tempest to stay in colour but add a face-beating to your opponents who are going wide, and on and on. There are WAY WAY WAY better options than this sub-par beater who plays into tribal theme.

I think Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is kind of a win-more card here. I guess it trades for one removal but I don't think it will win you games with its infect ability, and it's other abilities keep you very heavy in black which you're already dipping to with reanimator.

Fist of Suns helps you to cast 8 cards in your deck, and not by much; also requires you to have perfect 5c fixing whereas you are leaning towards having a heavier jund theme. I'd cut for a straight up rock or tribal profit card so it is dead less often. Does NOT remove commander tax (I.e. it cuts cost of your commander by 4 but realistically you're ramping so hard and have other cheapening effects that do it already, playing your commander is the purest form of gravy in magic I've conceived of. "Oh do I already have stupid mana and a field of dragons? Guess I'll dump 9 in all 5 colours to draw 5 cards and use an omniscience one time, plus have lethal in 2 turns"

Not sure why you took out Wasitora, Nekoru Queen because forced sacrifice is great against voltron and incidental large tokens which are fucking cute are pretty nice. She's a political powerhouse, in your theme colours and comes out fast, dodging indestructible, hexproof, etc. etc.

Mana base can still be corrected, there are individual cards that have purely better replacements (and I don't mean duals for shocks, you're fine there) like Murmuring bosk, which is a nice card in that it taps for 3 colour, but it will ALWAYS come in tapped and then hurts you to produce its two colours beyond green. I guess it's nice that you can search for it as a forest? I would rather just be playing more dual types that don't hurt me or sandsteppe citadel honestly.

xstuffstuffstuffx while it may be true that a budget-unlimited scion of the ur-dragon deck does better in a competitive mindset, or perhaps even a casual meta, that's not what this deck is built to do at all.
Your second point is just absolutely false, the ur-dragon as part of the 99 is just a one-time super high cost card you have to get to combat with to do anything with. I guess if you switched to a scion super-reanimator strategy then he's a reasonable include but he's definitely not a card who shines in the 99, none of the emminence commanders are they are intended, just like Oloro, to be played AS commanders. The Ur-dragon wants to put lots of beaters on the board, not play tutorable combos.
