Chewie’s Karrthus CMDR Decks Video

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund

I present to you my Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund deck!  I’ve always loved me some dragons, beginning (in Magic anyway) with the Shivan Dragon.  That cartoony old Melissa Benson artwork is iconic to my early memories of the game, so much so that I didn’t even have to look up the artist credit.  And if you’re going to have a leader of Dagrons, who better than good old Karrthus?  He’s pretty huge and hasty, he’s in all the right colors, and he’s makes all my other flying lizards hasty too!  Never mind that I happen to snatch all the other dragons that my opponents might have been dumb enough to play!

So yeah, there are dragons.  And things that work well with dragons.  And burn.  I mean really, what’s a dragon deck without dragon fire?  But on top of that, I threw in all the ways I could find to destroy a permanent.  I’ve got removal coming out of my…library.  If it can destroy more than one type of permanent and it’s in my colors, I might have thrown it in here (except you, Naturalize) so I can blow up whatever needs blowing up.  And as we all know, there’s ALWAYS something that needs to be sploded in Commander.  Yay!

Special thanks goes out to Uriah (@CMDRDecks) over at CMDR Decks for choosing this video as the 100th vid on his channel!  I’m honored to be a milestone like that.  Keep an eye out for his 100th deck tech vid, which should be something actually cool.  Also thanks to the roommate and webmaster Scott for filming these vids with his nice shiny expensive camera in HD and all that.  He’s my hero and should be yours too.  Also, who doesn’t love Kermit the Frog?

LIAR!  Now watch the video, it’s awesome.  Gotta love that Phyrexian Food Processor of Mike’s!

    Sweet deck, if you like Dragons…try Zirilian of the Claw, nothing better than tutoring dragons into play…or 2 if you have a Rings of Brighthearth.

    I can’t watch the video yet, since I’m at work, but have you thought of adding Blades of Velis Vel to your deck? It lets you steal any two creatures when you cast it with Karrthus. Also, what was the reason for not including Crucible of Fire?

      You can see the deck in its current form on my TappedOut.net page. Username is ManaPoolChewie.

      Crucible of Fire is in there now. I didn’t own one at the time. I also just found a Bladewing the Risen that needs to fit in there somewhere. The Blades would be a neat trick, but I dunno if they’d be worth including otherwise. And I have NO idea how I missed Hull Breach. I love that card. I probably decided that I had enough “destroy target permanent of some sort” spells in here that there weren’t any more holes for it. Maybe. Needs to be checked out though.

      Thanks Greg!

    Also, if you are looking to destroy stuff, Hull Breach would be a solid inclusion.
