Adun Oakenshield is a Jund commander from Legends.
For GRB, you get a 1/2 Legendary Human Knight. Nothing particularly good for 3 mana.
However, his ability is what makes him shine. for another GRB and tap, you can put a creature in your graveyard into your hand.
While this makes him look more like a utility card, it makes him a very powerful combo Commander, being another user of the Hermit Druid Combo in some cases.
The Combo Route:
- Devoted Druid
- Dread Return
- Hermit Druid
- Necrotic Ooze
- Spikeshot Elder
The combo is to use Hermit Druid to mill your entire library by not playing basic lands in the deck at all.
Then, you use Dread Return to get Necrotic Ooze into play, which gets the activated abilities of all creatures in all graveyards: in this case, we’re focusing on Devoted Druid + Morselhoarder + Spikeshot Elder combo.
You can add and remove the -1/-1 counters from necrotic ooze by adding the counters with Devoted Druid and removing them with Morselhoarder to get infinite mana of any colors. Then, using this infinite mana, you repeatedly use the Spikeshot Elder ability to kill every other player at the table.
Aside from that, Adun is just good at getting creatures back, letting you reuse your best creatures over and over again.
