On the chopping block:

Made some changes according to what I could get my hands on. For the time being, removing everything in my "Maybe" list.
Added in Rekindling Phoenix , Squee, Goblin Nabob , Feldon of the Third Path , Lightning Greaves , Bloodhall Ooze , Reassembling Skeleton , Bloodcrazed Paladin , Mastermind's Acquisition , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Second Harvest , Casualties of War , Spore Frog , Gluttonous Troll , Cinder Barrens , and another Swamp. My mana base still favors red a bit but with my mountains so low, I think it will work. I should be able to play the deck for the first time next week!

So when demolishing my Judith deck and going thru the Ghired precon, I did come across some gems that I thought might go well in here. Some of the cards in the list above, I don't actually own yet and are a bit pricey. So here goes.
Second Harvest Bloodhall Ooze Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Eliminate the Competition Liliana, Dreadhorde General Defiant Salvager Mayhem Devil Fireblade Artist Mastermind's Acquisition Mirror March Bloodcrazed Paladin Field of the Dead Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin Reassembling Skeleton Mortuary Mire Bolas's Citadel

Deck link? I assume you mean Ooze Jund though?
I actually have an Ooze-centred deck (Classic Jund-er!) and while it's not super competitive I've got a few thoughts based on my own experiences. First, I'd drop Cryptbreaker : you've got no cards that benefit from being discarded, and only two that utilise the cards once they're in the graveyard. Playing on the counters theme are Corpsejack Menace and Winding Constrictor . The latter is the perfect follow-up to Bloodhall Ooze as they give it four counters a turn regardless of anything else on the field while the former is really just a win-more that will see your counters getting out of control very quickly. Neither play well with Devoted Druid but I'm not convinced you need him anyway as your mana base is pretty strong, if lacking Raging Ravine and perhaps a basic Forest or two. Speaking of, if you think you can handle the triple green you might want to think about Predator Ooze as a one or two-of. Next, are Doom Whisperer or Morselhoarder contributing meaningfully to your game plan? Considering the the theme, I would suggest replacing the higher-end gribblies with a more synergistic payoff such as Biogenic Ooze as well as including a fourth Walking Ballista . Acidic Slime is very versatile as well but probably not worth the main board, perhaps it could replace Wickerbough Elder ?
Other than its creatures, Jund's main strengths are all about being interactive. First is hand disruption, so including some discard spells is practically obligatory. Whether you want to go with any of the first turn options ( Duress et al) or the retro Blightning is up to you, but the former is probably of more value for this deck and gives it a strong opener that sets back your opponent while giving you information. On the removal front I would cut Font of Agonies because you simply don't have enough ways to repeatably pay life consistently early on and is a dead draw later. The fact that it is also an enchantment that your opponent knows you have and can play around or simply destroy once you get to three counters really puts the nail in its coffin. The truth is that Jund is spoiled for choice when it comes to destroying anything, even on a limited budget you've got access to Lightning Bolt , Putrefy and Terminate . Then if you want to upgrade you can look into Fatal Push , Abrupt Decay / Assassin's Trophy , Maelstrom Pulse and Kolaghan's Command . Vessel of Nascency also feels very sub-par and is rather mana hungry: Jund in all its flavours is about that Dat Walue and three mana for one card doesn't feel like a good deal. Especially when, again, you've no Tarmogoyf s or other things that want a graveyard stacked with different card types. Both oozes looking in that direction prefer a creature-based diet, so focus on attacking, making aggressive trades and simply blowing up any creatures your opponent brings out.
Sideboard I'll avoid commenting on unless you have a specific question because it's pretty meta-dependant, though four Pithing Needle s seems like a lot. Any card in particular giving you trouble? Anyway hope that helps, or at least gives you something to think about.

Thanks for the support keinsteinkenten! I used a style sheet. (See the bottom of my [[Primer]] - Jund Midrange and be careful) There is also an easy way to do it if you're not up to it yet by using this code at the beginning of your deck description:
Followed by a style sheet such as this one to make all the boxes transparent:

Hope that helps.

And yes. I played this deck for the first time at my LGS and had an absolute blast. Aether Hub got some funny looks as did almost every other card in the deck. Even got Bloodhall Ooze up to 13/13. It was so refreshing to play this deck against the current meta. Of course it struggles against Burn like most slow decks do. But the potential to swing for big damage with Bloodhall Ooze drew the attention of plenty of bolts .

When you see "budget" "jund" and "$$$$" all in the same deck. Jund in a nutshell. I guess bloodbraid being introduced made it easier, $250 is pretty good for jund.
That card that made me want to build budget jund was Bloodhall Ooze , but I gave up because it was too hard. I admire your work. +1

Trust me PlatinumOne. Once you see how many counters Bloodhall Ooze and Managorger Hydra get you’ll understand the choice over Skinshifter . A T3 5/5 Bloodhall Ooze is one of my favorite ways to win a game.
