@ nayaftw I don't know if I would do 4 of them in the sideboard, maybe 3 tops, because then I have to sacrifice something else that I would sideboard in for another deck. Don't get me wrong, for the mirror match, Vandalblast is great, however, there are only a handful of artifacts in the deck that need to be destroyed to cripple an Affinity deck. Cranial Plating for example, if you remove that from an Affinity deck, the whole deck slows to a crawl, although, to make up for that, Arcbound Ravager with some combat tricks can still win the game, or even an Etched Champion with metalcraft. Ancient Grudge was favored because it is a 1 CMC card with flashback, also 1 CMC. I love the fact that Vandalblast is also 1 CMC, but more importantly the wording on it makes it an ideal board wipe in the mirror. My concern is that since I run less mana than a standard deck, that it might take a little but to get to a point that I have 5 mana available to overload the spell. However, if I do manage to, it would be devastating to an opponent. For now, I am playing around with Vandalblast , giving it a fair shot because I'd really like to use it.

Torpor Orb ... But seriously give Courser Jund a spin if you want to see it's place in the Meta. My local meta has about 4 twin decks, 2 pod decks(both Melira) , some UWR, and a couple Affinity decks, and I do just fine when I play correctly. Sideboarding is important, as it can really take you from a decent match up to just blow outs. Torpor Orb , Shatterstorm , Ancient Grudge , Rakdos Charm , Nihil Spellbomb are all really easy to use SB cards that make match ups better, and usually pump Goyf XD!

Jund has a sweet suite of removal, hand disruption, and general answers to the creature based combo decks. It can compete in almost any match up, and it's fun to just sit there in topdeck mode with your opponent. Maybe that's the sadist in me :P. Jund, in my humble opinion, is sitting in a good spot as combo becomes popular.

MindAblaze! I was more thinking using the Tel-Jilad Justice for its scry 2 ability, I do like the ability to flashback the Ancient Grudge , but wasnt to sure where to go.. and without having any cantrips, I was thinking scry may be the way to go...

Ill def test it out thw with grudge and see which works out better, thanks for the input!!

Do you feel Tel-Jilad Justice is better than Ancient Grudge ?

@luigithefourth: I feel that the Joraga Treespeaker s seem to be working out quite well, and the reason I don't use Craterhoof Behemoth s is because when they enter play, my creatures are generally tapped, so it isn't to helpful, but I am definitely considering it! The lifegain is definitely a good idea! I don't play professionally, so I don't get to test out my decks to often, but that is so worth it! Fauna Shaman is nice, but it is a little slow, so I'll MyB it. I'll MyB Ancient Grudge , just because I have no idea what to switch it out for. Torpor Orb is a YES!!! Mindbreak Trap will go to MyB. Same with Heartwood Storyteller . Thanks! :D

Seems to me like the Joraga Treespeaker s are a little slow, so I'd replace em with Voyaging Satyr . It's already been suggested, but Craterhoof Behemoth is the better finisher, I think. Also, one of my alltime favorites, Fauna Shaman would be really sweet to help you find both Craterhoof and Regal force. In other news, if you run into a deck faster than you (burn) you would want some sideboard lifegain in the form of Wurmcoil Engine or Batterskull . Your matchup against Faeries might be not so great too, so maybe a Torpor Orb or three in the side to deal not only with that but anything else in the field. I just realized, though, that that shuts down lots of your stuff. Hmm. Ancient Grudge and Creeping Corrosion are always awesome, especially since you have the mana to pull off the latter. A Rule of Law , Eidolon of Rhetoric , or Mindbreak Trap would pull its weight against Storm.

And since you used an extremely lame excuse to get me to this page, you might want to consider Heartwood Storyteller against control, since it generates some insane card advantage. Hey, that reminds me, you should czech out my deck, since it also has cards in it. Heartwood Thar, Grand Keeper of Fauna

@LineDart That is a possibility, but I don't know if that is ideal with this deck. you say you use it in yours? How consistent has it been? Are you running that as a 4 of in the sideboard? I do like the idea, but I'm concerned it won't be as effect as I'm imagining.

@nayaftw Excellent suggestion, I think I may give that a shot over Ancient Grudge .

@Scorprix LOL, +1 for that most awesome deck list.
