Deathbringer Thoctar Discussion
2 weeks ago
I think your deck is suffering from a mild case of "I-want-to-do-too-many-things". Focus on what is it that you'd like the deck to do, and try to streamline it a little bit more. Do this by cutting the "win more" cards, that do nothing when you are behind and only help when you are already ahead.
Secondly, I would increase the land count to around 37 and add cheap efficient ramp (preferably on creatures) to at least 8. Farhaven Elf, Yavimaya Dryad, Wild-Field Scarecrow, and Yavimaya Elder will help you find and get more lands out.
A third thing to do is to consider bringing the average cmc of the deck down a little. At four, it's a little high. Try bringing it down to 3,0-3,5.
Lastly, I would increase the number of free sac outlets, and perhaps add another piece to your Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Deathbringer Thoctar+free sac outlet combo to finish the game as a plan D, for the games that are just lasting too long.
These are general guidelines. I run a jund coloured deck as well (it's very different than yours, as I play it as an Aristocrat-style deck) that can potentially offer a source of inspiration for some card choices that may be good for your deck as well (eg. sac outlets, cheap efficient ramp, card draw, etc...). Here's the link:

Deathbringer Thoctar is a blast with Deathtouch

Thanks for the help! I definitely needed to find a way to revamp my land base to support Cultivate/Kodama's Reach. I'm not a huge fan of Rancor for the reasons listed above, and I'm not sure paying 4 is all that different from paying 5 to remove an enchantment. I love Goblin Sharpshooter/Deathbringer Thoctar, they just do so much for so little investment! I haven't really gotten the chance to play much with Aid from the Cowl, it was more of just another card draw engine I threw in because I felt I was a bit short on draw. However, I think it probably just comes down too late, and is often, as you mentioned, a do nothing enchantment for 5.

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast
Defiler of Souls

Well Necrotic Ooze seems like it could help with your overall play style, as it can take advantage of a lot of your creature's abilities while in they in the Graveyard.
As for combos, what about Grimgrin, Corpse-Born/Blasting Station + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Deathbringer Thoctar/Murderous Redcap for infinite damage
Anyway, I feel like you should focus more on taking advantage of Marchesa, the Black Rose's strengths with the +1/+1 Counters with abilities like Undying. Please let me know if you want a look over, besides from that looks like a really cool deck!!!
