Mana: the source of vitality and magic on every plane! It is life in its purest form. It can also inflict incredible amounts of pain if not handled properly. Commanders like Kruphix, God of Horizons and Omnath, Locus of Mana show us how mana can be used to fuel our victory and strengthen our ranks. Abundance is key. However, Yurlok of Scorch Thrash is gluttonous. He overindulges in this vitality and turns it into something monstrous.

The gifts of Jund never come without a price.

The Commander

Yurlok of Scorch Thrash is the ultimate mana burn Commander. Any unspent mana hurts our opponents and his tap ability allows us to be extremely generous. Have you ever been in a game of Commander and had an opponent ask you for some mana? We always want to help out and share but very rarely do we have the opportunity to do so. Well, in these cases, Yurlok of Scorch Thrash is your best friend. However, his generosity comes with a price. This is exactly where we begin our brew. This deck has two ways for us to utilize and maximize the pain we deal off of Yurlok of Scorch Thrash's ability:

  1. Give everyone even more mana, because surely there will be some left over, right?
  2. Control the tempo of the game by giving everyone mana that they have to use at inopportune times (for them).

The More the Merrier

Let's dive into strategy #1! Mana doublers are abundant in Magic, but finding global mana doublers proved to be challenging. The challenge was not their abundance but rather minimizing the benefits we give to our opponents. Yes we need to give our opponents mana for them to feel the burn, but we don't want to give them enough to thrive on. Therefore, this deck only runs four cards that give our opponents more mana than they asked for. Eladamri's Vineyard and Shizuko, Caller of Autumn give every player additional mana at their upkeep, and while these increments seem small, they add up. While they may seem like an early game gift, the mana begins to add up and eventually burn. At their worst, both cards act as a Shock or Lightning Bolt's worth of damage to the face if our opponents can't use the mana.

Belbe, Corrupted Observer pairs extremely well with Yurlok of Scorch Thrash giving them colorless mana equal to those who lost life that turn. This is absolutely glorious!! Thanks to Yurlok of Scorch Thrash, Belbe, Corrupted Observer is able to give a lot of mana to everyone consistently. This yields more damage to everyone and more damage means more mana. The cycle then continues. If played early on in the game, she can seem harmless! Pleasant! It can even entice our opponents to attack one another. However, when Yurlok of Scorch Thrash hits the field, this present turns sour.

Heartbeat of Spring makes it so that lands tap for an additional mana. Because of its low converted mana cost, this enchantment seems like the perfect gift. Mana for everyone, right? As long as they don't look at our commander, our plays will seem like gifts... until they're not.

The Burn

Yurlok of the Scorch Thrash was made to burn. I mean, come on! It's in the name. However, given the nature of his ability I can almost guarantee that he will be a target. He won't last too long out on the battlefield. So what can we do about that? Simple. Let's stuff this deck full of fun ways to burn while our viashino is taking a breather. 

This beauty triggers on upkeep, dealing damage equal to the amount of untapped lands they had at the start of the turn. This enchantment is a fun way to be tricky. With Yurlok of Scorch Thrash, our opponents don't want to tap their lands for mana out of fear that they will have mana floating at the end of their turn. However, Power Surge encourages them to tap their lands out of fear that they will take heaps of damage on their upkeep. Either way, they lose!

Manabarbs, Burning Earth, and Overabundance ping our opponents whenever they tap a land—their spells definitely come with a cost with these enchantments. Tap their lands, take damage, and possibly float mana just to cast a spell or simply do nothing at all while their cards burn a hole in their hands.

The final way for us to Burn our opponents is with my new favorite enchantment: Citadel of Pain. This is the end-step version of Power Surge, encouraging our opponents to tap all their lands out of fear of taking even more damage. However, they better have ways to use that mana or the pain they're avoiding will be inevitable.

Control

When anybody says control, people tend to think of white and blue cards, not Jund cards. While Azorious might have more ways to control games, Jund has plenty tools that prevent opponents from acting the exact way it wants them to itself.

White taxes things and even makes them come into play tapped. However, red is a bit more volatile. One such example of this volatility is Zo-Zu the Punisher. While we want out opponents to float mana, we don't necessarily want them to play any more! Two damage each time a land comes into play definitely stacks up, making our opponents hesitant to play anything.

Another way to control our opponents is by controlling the way they tap their mana. If we don't have Zo-Zu the Punisher out to prevent them from playing lands, we at least have cards like War's Toll and Mana Web. Each of these cards makes our opponents tap all their lands whenever they just tap one. In order to prevent their entire turn from being a huge loss, this makes them float all of their mana which is exactly what we want them to do—any unused floating mana results in mana burn thanks to Yurlok of Scorch Thrash.

Creatures can be pretty pesky. While we may be in colors ripe with removal, we want our main focus to be around mana and lands. So how exactly do we take care of some beefy creatures coming our way? Enter Lethal Vapors, a heinous enchantment that removes creatures as soon as they enter the battlefield. While the way to prevent this may cost 0 mana, the likelihood of an opponent wanting to skip their next turn is minimal. Their options are incredibly minimal. Play a creature and have it die, skip your next turn, or play nothing at all.

The final piece of control I want to highlight is Price of Glory. What's the ultimate form of control if not holding everyone's lands hostage? This enchantment is slotted into this deck to prevent all those blue players from popping off and countering our gluttonous spells. After all, they will eventually see through our ruse once they start taking damage. Is that Counterspell really worth losing two of your lands forever? Odds are probably not.

Mana Sinks

The most important thing to keep in mind regarding Yurlok of Scorch Thrash is the fact that his ability is global, meaning we take damage from unspent mana too. Our mana doublers make this even more dangerous for us. So how do we survive our own commander? Mana sinks! Mana sinks are our saving grace for this deck. Whether they're X spells or repeatable abilities, we are able to use every ounce of our mana to escape our own burn.

X spells are some of the perfect mana sinks because we can dump as much or as little mana we want without the possibility of having any left over. Creatures like Walking Ballista, Apocalypse Hydra, and Hydra Broodmaster are giant threats waiting to happen with the amount of mana we could possibly generate. Whether we want to ping opponents for 1 or simply create an obscene amount of tokens, these sinks are ripe with possibility.

Our next X spells are some of Magic's greatest pains. These spells strike terror into the hearts of those facing them, and with good reason. These spells are, in fact, a perfect example of something worth countering with Price of Glory out on the battlefield—game enders when enough mana is sunk into them. Life is lost, damage is dealt, and permanents are sacrificed thanks to them, making them the deadliest and perfect X-cost mana sinks.

Our final X cost sink is probably one of my favorite spells in Magic. Helix Pinnacle turns our bounty of mana into a passive win condition. If we can't kill our opponents with mana burn, we can at least get something out of it for ourselves. All we have to do is bide our time and dump all our mana until we hit the big 100.

So we've talked about X spells, but what about other sinks? They do have a set number we need to pay, making them less potent. However, they are still integral to us not dying. One such sink is Valakut Invoker. This card was originally added a joke but was ultimately kept because it can bolt any target as opposed to just creatures. Sensei's Divining Top and Staff of Domination are other great ways to cash in some unspent mana. While they are a bit tedious to perform, we look at the top three cards of our library, tap/untapped creatures, gain life, and even draw cards! THAT IS A LOT! Mana sinks allow us to reap what we sow while everyone else pays the ultimate price: their life total.

Big Mana, Bigger Combo

Let's make infinite mana! Infinite mana in this deck means infinite burn, but how exactly do we do this? We will need three pieces! Yurlok the Scorch Thrash, Sword of the Paruns/Umbral Mantle, and Leyline of Abundance. Yurlok of Scorch Thrash is a mana dork that likes to cause pain. His ability makes everyone add BRG to their mana pool. When he is paired with Leyline of Abundance, he taps for an additional green. While that may mean one more mana to give everyone, this is not where our combo ends. When paired with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns, we are able to untap Yurlok of Scorch Thrash as many times as we want. This then generates infinite mana for everyone, killing our opponents on our end step. While this could kill us, if we have our mana sinks out, then we live to see the changing of phases. Talk about a big combo, right?

Mana is lost when phases change. Most commander players think nothing of it. After all, what harm is there in letting some mana slip away? With the introduction of Yurlok of Scorch Thrash, this carefree attitude can create a game loss. This legendary is one of Commander Legends' best because it does something very rare: make our opponents think twice. Legendaries' abilities are usually only geared towards the player playing them—typically it's only us who gets the benefits. Yurlok of Scorch Thrash, instead, makes it so that every player must be aware and cautious, making him a unique and exciting brew.
