Consider one card to add to your arsenal... card:Rakdos's Return, my second favorite combo with Chandra, the Firebrand . Works in my jund deck, should work for you. It can discard, or burn, and both. Another good wincon if for some reason they prevent anything else.
Farseek will get me an Overgrown Tomb if one of the three lands has not shown up. card:Rakdos's Return is a later-game card, giving me plenty of time to prepare for it. It is also a card that I don't mind dropping for something, as playtesting shows me what the deck needs.
I definately have, i saw your jund deck which has her in it and i gave her a try. Unfortunately card:Rakdos's Return is a bit of a pain to use right now with all the reanimator and Loxodon Smiter 's hanging around, and whenever im not up against those decks (probably rakdos aggro) then an uncopied card:Rakdos's Return on turn 4 for 3 cards will be just as effective. I would like to be able to put her in though if the meta would permit it.
As for the pinging i prefer to side in Staff of Nin and just bury the opponent in card advantage.
Have you considered Chandra, the Firebrand ? I ran her for a few weeks when I was trying to not net-deck Jund and she was shit-balls amazing. In more than a few games, I started with Farseek turn 2, Chandra turn 3, and a copied card:Rakdos's Return for 6 total on turn 4.
You kinda just win at that point.
If this is a Rakdos deck should it also have card:Rakdos's Return if u wanna keep the black... just sayin.
I have had some success with my Junk Control deck as well. Recently I've been debating on a fourth color but it does well against other control decks and can handle aggro as well the only matchups with my current build. I seem to have trouble against is Jund Midrange with card:Rakdos's Return, G/B zombies, and reanimation gives me some trouble but after sideboard I can usually handle myself no problem. I'm really hoping with gatecrash my deck will get some power boost but I haven't seen anything good for the deck yet.
