Stardragon on Feisty Gruul Mother

Crucible of Fire, Obelisk of Urd,Vanquisher's Banner or Jugan, the Rising Star to buff your dragons and give you more card draw, Gruul War Chant or Goblin War Drums to give them even more evasion Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors and Warstorm Surge for more ETB Burning, Balefire Dragon for massive field clearing potential (the bigger it get the damage it to the field) Moonveil Dragon for a field firebreathing effect, Dragon Broodmother for big tokens, while not dragons Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and Neheb, the Eternal both ramp you very well, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Star of Extinction, Savage Twister, Starstorm and Blasphemous Act for board wipes. Red rituals like Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Mana Geyser or Battle Hymn quick mana and Braid of Fire for steady ever increasing mana. Can't go wrong with the Bird duo of Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose for mana nor is Archetype of Endurance bad for protection Gratuitous Violence and Fiendish Duo are both one sided Furnace of Rath. Fervor or Fires of Yavimaya make dragons hasty, and Glorybringer and Combat Celebrant can be massive boon and if you Seedborn Muse you can alway have them untapped as exerted creatures only don't untapp during your phase but since seedborn untaps during opponents turns they also untap so you can get 4 free damage and an extra combat step ever turn. Savage Beating + Spellbinder can give free extra combat and if you use this combo the entwine also happens so you get both Savage Beating's effect's each time it goes off.

What about Jugan, the Rising Star to represent Haku from Spirited Away? =)

PhotogenicParasympathetic on REBIRTH OF THE STORM!

3 years ago

Hello friends!!!

Way back when, I built a mono-green storm deck, based around Jugan, the Rising Star - the deck required Paradox Engine to go off, and so was broken when the Engine was banned.

But guess what? Now, with the printing of Kodama of the East Tree, I think mono-green storm can be reborn!! Will it be good? Probably not! But will it be hilarious when it goes off? Absolutely!!

So here's what I've got:

I need a mana dork that taps for at least seven (I'm thinking Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Gyre Sage, Viridian Joiner, or Marwyn, the Nurturer) in play.

I need Quirion Ranger/Scryb Ranger in play.

I need Ambush Krotiq in hand.

I need Invasive Species in hand.

I need Paleoloth in play.

I need a sacrifice outlet in play.

And I need Kodama of the East Tree in play.

Tap the Mana dork, pick up a forest with the Ranger to untap, tap the Dork. 14 mana.

Use six to cast the Krotiq, putting the Invasive Species into play with the East Tree. Krotiq bounces the Quirion Ranger, Species bounces the Krotiq. Pick up something random with the Paleoloth.

Sacrifice the Species.

Recast the Quirion Ranger, put the forest into play with the East Tree. Untap the Mana dork, tap for seven, recast Krotiq.

With East Tree trigger on the stack, pick up Species with Paleoloth, then put Species into play off the trigger, bounce Quirion ranger and Krotiq.

Repeat for infinite mana (if the dork taps for more than seven), infinite storm, and infinite (whatever my sacrifice outlet does).

What I need from you all: 1) Praise. 2) Help. What other things can help refine this combo? What could serve as replacements for parts of it, in case of enemy removal?

I'm also tagging ThinkJank, as the originator of the Jugan combo, hoping they can help me out here.

I feel like Jugan, the Rising Star could've been more legendary in flavor...

Jugan, Star of the Champions

Legendary Creature - Dragon Spirit


When Jugan, Star of the Champions dies, for each +1/+1 counter on a creature you control, put another +1/+1 counter on that creature.


I'd like a common or uncommon dragon mono red

Was thinking to definitely remove Satyr Grovedancer. I think you are right about Jugan, the Rising Star as well. I would even consider removing Polukranos, World Eater as well. If I get constant counters, any creature should pretty much be fairly beefy. The Whispersilk Cloak was more for Gilder Bairn so I would have a way to untap it and use the ability or for an end game. No real intention of playing it on any creature I wanted targeted. However, Hardened Scales seems way more useful in the long run. Replacing one of each basic land is an easy sub. I like the plan right now and will work on updating this deck later today. Then I'll empty my acquire board after the order. Hopefully this deck makes me well hated on game night once it is completed.

Honestly Jugan, the Rising Star and Satyr might be able to go. Jugan, the Rising Star is a super high mana card and forgotten ancient has the easy potential of being able to distribute more counters for 4 mana. Satyr is ok, but just one counter one time. Ozolith can replace one of those creatures as well. I would use only one. For this deck I would say 2 Karn's Bastions and just replace one of each type of basic land. One thing about Whispersilk Cloak is that shroud makes it so YOU can't target your creature either. Also instead of a doubling season, Hardened Scales is a good cheap alternative. You should take a look at my deck +1/+1 Counters, and use the playtest feature to see how things work.

StefanKaminski on $20 Ryusei's Clone n' Clear Carnival

Hey JaceGoBoom :)

Just wanted to let you know that I really like your deck...

Well actually, it’s not only that:

When I started playing EDH I decided that I only wanted to have legendary dragons as commander. After building the easier ones I’m now at the point where I go for the „un-build-able“ and yeah, four of the Kamigawa Dragons appear to be at least a challenge because you always have to jump through so many hoops to get the when it dies trigger. After making Keiga, the Tide Star and Jugan, the Rising Star work I thought that’s it, I will never find a way to make Ryusei, the Falling Star into a deck and that’s when I found your list. And you did it! And your solution is so simple and therefore brilliant: Clones! And you also did it on a budget which is just super impressive :)

What I perhaps like the most is the sub-theme with Mogg Maniac and Coalhauler Swine. I like it so much that I’d like to suggest adding Spiteful Sliver and if you ever want to build it non budget Repercussion.

Not sure if it will stay budget but Molten Echoes could be an additional clone maker and for your potential upgrade paragraph I would suggest Kindred Charge as well as Feldon of the Third Path.

The last card that might be of interest is Weaponize the Monsters for Makeshift Munitions. Although it costs more to activate it deals more damage and also lets you shoot any target which could be an upside.

That’s it from my side. Thanks again for your deck building effort, description and especially charing it with the rest of the world :)
