neses on Jund Midrange Aether Revolt

3 days ago

Thanks DestinySide!

The Aether Hubs are there to provide me some early color fixing while also providing a colorless source for the Reality Smashers in the sideboard. I can see cutting some of them for the Evolving Wilds, but I think the access to an untapped source of any color of mana in the early game is too good to pass up. I'm not completely worried about triggering revolt, as we have plenty of ways of killing creatures into turns 3,4 etc. Its just the early turns that I'm trying to shore up a bit.

With regards to the Foreboding Ruins I agree, I honestly don't see them often enough in the early game for them to be worthwhile.

I kept the one-of Grapple with the Past so that in the late game I can buy back a Distended Mindbender or Noxious Gearhulk to close out the game, but I can certainly see arguments to cut it so I'll playtest without it. Any recommendations of killspells to replace it?

The main reason I like Chandra, Flamecaller is that she is guaranteed to do something beyond her literal presence when she hits the board; whether that is a minor board wipe, card selection, or aggresson. I really dont like Combustible Gearhulk as it both gives the opponent the option to pick what happens and/or can just completely miss and be kind of a bust in my opinion. As always though I am open to the suggestion, so I'll try out your reccomendation.

Those decks are mostly dead after the ban, testing against them now does nothing.

Also while most of your creatures are at 2 mana, most of the cards that will actually allow you to win games are at 3 or above. Especially since Fatal Push kills most of your deck without Revolt.

Traverse the Ulvenwald isn't a card to bank on for fixing. What happens when you mulligan to 4 or 5 and have a Foreboding Ruins and a Traverse? Your deck is predominantly black and it'll mess you up in real games more often than you think.

Final note: goldfishing =/= testing and Tier 1 refers to popularity not power level despite common misconception. Until you've sleeved a deck up, testing isn't a true representation of what a deck will do. The Paradox at Greenbelt tested extremely well until I sleeved up some proxies and tested against real people. Then I found out the deck wasn't as good as I first believed.

Auntie's Hovel, Blood Crypt, Dragonskull Summit, Foreboding Ruins, Smoldering Marsh. Those are some of the most budget ones, depending on your opinion. I feel what you mean by needing to play cheap, unfortunately I tend to build bigger than I play. Sorry if I can't be too much help for good Rakdos Synergy, it's probably my least played guild next to Simic. However, for a different view on token slaughter for damage, check out this deck of mine: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mardu-alchemy/

I built something very similar from a Grixis Control deck and a Mono Blue Metallurgic Summonings deck. I have play tested your deck against a variety of decks. I pitted this against G/W Humans, R/B Hell-bent Vampires, Red Burn, R/B Burn, G/W Tokens, U/R Fevered Visions, and R/W Vehicles (before the ban). I figured aggro decks would present the biggest challenge for this deck, but the deck didn't faulter. My only critique would be this: I'd consider revamping the land base, maybe run a few of the check lands like Choked Estuary and Foreboding Ruins over the tango lands. Other than that, this is an amazing build.
