Jugan, the Rising Star Discussion

SilentPlague on Breaking Turn Order

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.

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 :)

Ocelot44 on Attack of the Clones

Keiga’s not a bad idea! I still have one leftover from my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck where I used Marchesa’s reanimation ability and Graft creatures to loop him over and over again. My playgroups still refuse to run Homeward Path for some reason, so that could be really fun! Especially if I add back in a sack outlet like Ashnod's Altar or something because right now the only way that I can get rid of my own Keiga is by cloning him, and if someone actually brought out a Homeward Path or some other kind of Brand effect, then I’d want a way to get rid of all the things I stole

Roalesk could be cool in the right build of this deck, but this particular build doesn’t really care about attacking and doesn’t have anything worth proliferating outside of the two planeswalkers right now. Kind of the same reason why I wouldn’t run Jugan, the Rising Star

Stardragon on How to get five color …

1 year ago

So im trying to a deck that ive been wanting to making since i joined MTG back in Journey into Nyx. And that was a 5 color Star Dragon deck that abuses their on death abilities. For a while i though a 5 color copy deck built around the Star Dragons but i didn't work the i want it to. so far are i have for the deck is the bones Jugan, the Rising Star , Keiga, the Tide Star , Kokusho, the Evening Star , Yosei, the Morning Star , Ryusei, the Falling Star , Teysa Karlov and O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as my commander mostly for flavor but i theres a better command that actually helps pls let me know. P.S. I know that Child of Alara exist but I don't want potential artifacts or enchantments that help my deck get blown up as well

vasarto77 on Best mono green commander from …

1 year ago

I have three mono green commanders, and I am pretty sure all three cards are going in my deck. I don't want anything expensive in my deck, this will just be a whatever I got on hand and whatever is cheapest deck. The deck has tons and TONS of high power strong creatures like Thorn Elemental Jugan, the Rising Star Panglacial Wurm impervious slagwurm Pelakka Wurm scut mob ( Potential strong ) Gigantosaurus Verdurous Gearhulk Thragtusk Terra Stomper.

Because of this, I am thinking of going with a Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma or a Ghalta, Primal Hunger

I also have a TON of green mana ramp including Boundless Realms so I am also thinking of using Omnath, locust of mana as my commander. Maybe find a way to give it trample with the Primal Rage I got.

So with that in mind, I also want to throw in Helm of the Host which I think will want to be a major win condition too. I know I don't have any real way to search for it, but I also want the commander to be the best option for that artifact as well.

What do you guys think is the best commander for this deck?
