I have replaced Darigaaz, the Igniter, Dread, and Death Cloud with Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Ziatora, the Incinerator, and Fraying Omnipotence, because the newer cards are vastly superior to the older cards, and that did, unfortunately, increase the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.92 to 3.95, but those numbers are deceptive, since I would have needed to spend at least 2 mana on the in Death Cloud's mana cost to receive good value from it.

I flipped Chaos Warp off a turn two Jeska's Will once, with no better target than an opponent's Sol Ring. I think I turned it into Emrakul, the Promised End and I have no regrets. That player was my friend for the rest of the game, or at least until I used Settle the Wreckage when it finally had to attack me.

That game still comes up in conversation whenever Chaos Warp is used a tad frivolously in my group. I think I rebuilt my Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire after that, so I can do it every turn :D

Fun fact! Piru, the Volatile was actually the lover of Chromium, the Mutable. There were actually several other Elder Dragons native to Dominaria that have yet to be explored or really depicted in cards such as Marrevia, Ravus, Rubra, and Lividus. They are cousins of Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire!

Anyways, Lore aside, here's my interpretation of Marrevia!

Marrevia-Sal, the Despised

Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon


At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice ~ unless you pay .

At the beginning of your endstep, you may pay X life. If you do, mill that many cards, then return a creature card from among cards milled this way to the battlefield. If it were to leave the battlefield, exile it.

Continued creativity in would be appreciated, more creativity in would be really appreciated & probably will happen considering the direction of the last commanders. My major hope that I keep restating is that does not continue to be 90% sac theme. When they can make do great at a million things that it didn't do before I would think they should have no issue with a different direction on . I wonder too if will have some more Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire destroy/build themes with the description of that family being what it is.

Palladia-Mors and Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner are the worst Elder Dragons, imo. I want her to get better representation...

Palladia-Mors, the Hunter

Legendary Creature - Mors

+2: Palladia-Mors, the Hunter deals 5 damage to target creature or planeswalker. Excess damage is dealt to that permanent's controller instead.

-5: Choose a permanent type. Each player chooses a number they control equal to the number controlled by the player who controls the fewest permanents of that type, then sacrifices the rest.

-14: Creatures you control gain lifelink and indestructible. Each creature deals damage equal to its power to each other creature.

Palladia-Mors, the Hunter can be your Commander


I'd like to see one of the three other Original Elder Dragons made into a Planeswalker-Commander:

Arcades Sabboth / Arcades, the Strategist

Chromium Rhuell / Chromium, the Mutable

Vaevictis Asmadi / Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

TypicalTimmy I did see that. That is part of what I am excited about with that set (exploring some less explored wedges)... Jund's "lands matters" theme fell kindof flat, probably the most exploratory concept I've seen in Jund in awhile was Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire. I am less of a tribal guy, I like sets based on new design space or surprise bangers. Being less of a tribal guy, several of the sets haven't had as much appeal for me lately because they have been pretty heavy on that emphasis.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I was thinking Toshiro Umezawa and Horobi, Death's Wail were made for each other tho I dont think it is a deck people would have fun playing against.

On a similar note Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip would also go quite well together.
