RambIe on Jund vs Mardu

I gota give it to jund but it's really close. I mean Kaalia of the Vast & Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can be pretty aggressive. But it's like asking what's more aggressive gruul or boros. (1) 10/10 or (5) 2/2s your getting 10 to the face either way.

I feel this is a good time to plug my new Commander Variant, and offer some of my favs from that:

Commander Variant: Unlikely Alliances

Some of my favorite unlikely alliances include:

Kaalia of the Vast and Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund dragon tribal

Rafiq of the Many and Uril, the Miststalker enchantress

Omnath, Locus of the Roil and Yarok, the Desecrated elemental tribal

Delina, Wild Mage and Wulfgar of Icewind Dale combat trigger bonanza

Hey Mark3sie, I have a few suggestions. I don’t run Edgar, but I do run Kaalia of the Vast, so I have experience with mardu colors. I am making suggestions regardless of budget since I don’t see the budget tag.

You are a little light on removal. What about Damn (instead of Damnation), Deadly Rollick, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Council's Judgment, Wear / Tear, and Fire Covenant.

Deflecting Swat is awesome as well and has saved me many times.

Jeweled Lotus and Grim Monolith will help you get Edgar out faster.

I concur with Last_Laugh - Reconnaissance would work really well here.

Hope this helps! :)

Golgari Processing Plant

Land (Mythic Rare)

Golgari Processing Plant enters the battlefield tapped.

, Sacrifice another permanent: Add , , or .

, , Sacrifice Golgari Processing Plant, exile your graveyard: Create a 1/1 black and green Worm creature token for each creature card exiled this way, create a 0/1 green Plant creature token for each land card exiled this way, and create a 1/1 black Rat creature token for each noncreature, nonland card exiled this way.


I'd like to see a card which cares about those three creature types. In any way. Elite Inquisitor , Kaalia of the Vast , Power Word Kill , Animal Sanctuary , Swarmyard , and Boldwyr Intimidator / Kargan Intimidator all show permutations of different multi-tribes, for reference.

This looks like lots of fun! I've always had an interest in Kaalia of the Vast , but mostly because I've always wanted an angels deck, and Kaalia just doesn't feel like the right flavor for angels. This seems far more thematically appropriate! Maybe someday we'll get a real good angel commander from WoTC, but I won't hold my breath. I love the alternate win con in Liliana's Contract ! You can certainly kill everyone without it, but its a fun and flavorful option, and even if you don't win with it it it's never a dead card as drawing four cards in Mardu is always a good thing.

Sup lobsternips!

As a baseline, you'll need to add lands, which I'm sure you know. Since you're making Treasure and Gold tokens in this deck you'd probably be good with roughly 34-36 lands, leaning more to the most mana color you'll need, say like a 25/25/50 split if thats what you're going for.

- We'll cover your cards to include by type, so lets start with creatures. I like the Angels, Demons, and Dragons subtheme, if you were considering it I'd try and include Kaalia of the Vast if you can get your hands on one, otherwise just slim down on the tribal stuff, reaching too far into each different theme could result in inconsistencies and clunky play. I've been there, it sucks a lot. (Unfortunately, you can't run Shalai, Voice of Plenty since she has a Selesnya color identity)

-When it comes to your Dragons, I think you hit the nail on the head, nothing I would really change or take out. Allows for Magda, Brazen Outlaw to have a decent outlet if you don't want an artifact.

-Finally, the other things you've got going. Dockside should just be an auto-include, albeit a heavy price tag, but if you can get one you should definitely include it.

  • Dark Impostor , while mana intensive is still a decent mana sink that can function effectively as targeted removal. Definitely keep your edict creatures, they are super useful and trigger Negan, and thats what you want.

  • Starnheim Aspirant is useful if you go super heavy into the Angel theme, but if you skimp on the Angel theme this could very often be a dead card.

  • Storm-Kiln Artist , I like this a lot for this deck, can be a beater, and generates value.

  • Vault Robber , seems bad, and bad to do. Synergizes with Magda and makes Treasure tokens, but thats really it... PLUS it requires you to have a creature in YOUR grave. I'd cut this, but if you have a reason to play it I'm not seeing immediately play it in your deck.

  • Viscera Seer , good card, good sac outlet, not much else to say.

  • Creatures I'd include based on what I've seen: Solemn Simulacrum , Burnished Hart and Mayhem Devil . Some good ramp and a decent damage dealer if you'd like to play a cheap one. Plus the Devil is great at just 3 mana.

First thing I wanna point out is the abundance of them, its good, but its quite a few. I like the variety of them though, from token generation to mana value, all of them are GOOD in a sense.

  • Angelic Renewal is basically a one time effect. While good, there are better recursion spells out there, but this one does fit the Angel theme so thats really cool. :D

  • Land Tax : Definitely play this if you want more inclusions in your deck and want to play less lands, but don't forget to have a focus on more basic lands for the landbase.
  • Luminarch Ascension is subject to removal by other players, and somewhat makes you a target, but with Divine Visitation and your non-Treasure generators make this super useful.
  • Aside from that, I think that's a decent spread of enchantments. Nothing to add really, love the inclusion of the Sagas and Revel in Riches .

    I'm sure you'll add more later, but here are some I'd DEFINITELY include:

  • The three signets for your colors, Arcane Signet as well.

  • Goldvein Pick : hidden tRAESurES!!!
  • Inspiring Statuary for a low mana investment, you can effectively keep your Treasures around, or use your Gold tokens twice(tap it for colorless, then sac it for colored mana).
  • Panharmonicon to double up on edict effects.

  • Not much in this category outside of removal or token generation.

  • Wouldn't run Secure the Wastes strictly because it doesn't put Humans into play, play the sorcery option Martial Coup instead if you want a token creator with some OOMPH.

  • I'd recommend more removal, but with everything else considered I think you're pretty much good here. Really like the Crackling Doom and Vona's Hunger inclusions.

    OOOOkay, lots to look at here.

  • Mortuary Mire : Get that creature back in play!
  • High Market : Useful when Dictate of Erebos is in play.
  • Sanctum of Eternity / Command Beacon : You never know when you might need to use them. Negan can get expensive real fast.
  • That basically does it for my brief review, hope I was of some help!

    zAzen7977 on Building the (Bad) Kaalia

    4 months ago

    Oops, I just noticed you said Kaalia, Zenith Seeker , instead of Kaalia of the Vast , my bad. I have never tried to specifically build a deck around Kaalia ZS, although I did use her as support in my KotV deck at one time. After testing, I realized that she is not that useful since the commander deck is 99 cards, and she only digs through 6 cards. It seems like a big deal, but imho, I’d rather run KotV as commander and cast a cheap tutor to search for exactly what I want. Then you get to take advantage of her built-in Quicksilver Amulet .

    As you perhaps came to realize, Kaalia of the Vast does not cast the creatures she cheats into play. Cards will explicitly mention if a card is being cast ("play" equates to cast, except when referring to lands). Therefore Lavinia, Azorius Renegade will not be able to counter the cards.
