Hello! First off, I think you should add more dual lands like Temple of Abandon or maybe even some Fungal Reaches ? Those are good for mana fixing and ramp.

Second, I think you should remove the following2x Disciple of the Old Ways 1x Duskdale Wurm 2x Lava Axe 2x Verdant Haven 2x Feral Animist 2x Ruination Wurm 2x Act of Treason 2x Volcanic Geyser

And one more thing, definitely add some Mistcutter Hydra

Lightning Bolt over Lava Axe , 5 mana for 5 damage at sorcery speed is pretty bad. Red Sun's Zenith over Devil's Play for cheaper, multiple uses.

Maybe Pyretic Ritual or Desperate Ritual to get out the doom engine quicker.

Possibly some white to protect your artifacts such as Boros Charm and/or Gods Willing

He can't get Lava Axe 'd, but he can get Ban Hammered.

the Lava Axe was considered because I was tired and forgot about the lightning strikes but I edited it and took out the axes.Also Pinnacle of Rage is useful because instead of just dealing damage to creatures it deals damage to players and creatures.

Thanks for the tips,

Lava Axe has no business in your deck, just run Lightning Strike and I'd try Bile Blight instead of Pinnacle of Rage and I'd recommend trying to make a sideboard

Abubroki on The Stress of Their Regard (Vampire deck)

After suggesting tips to TideWakes's deck Let's Vamp Up, I am thinking of adding Proliferate to my deck... but only 5 of my creatures really have counters, as the "gets +x/+x" effect does not imply counters. I could increase Stromkirk Noble to 4x by removing Pulse Tracker , but Pulse Tracker seems efficient because he damages opponent just by being declared as an attacker. And still, my main concern is lacking card draw for early to mid game. Grim Affliction could maybe replace Dash Hopes (though I love the idea of a black Counterspell /Lava Axe ) or Tezzeret's Gambit which would not require blue mana (and I have 6 lifelinkers for the phyrexian blue) but would imply using 3 mana in my main phase...

Any thoughts?

zargaden on GB edh, graveyard

So judging by the commander, I would say you want to do things in the graveyard and pull them back. My favorite way to do this is to work with creatures that have "when this creature enters the battlefield" or "when another creature enters the battlefield" type creatures. This also means I want a lot of sacrifice and reanimating.

Therefore, cheap cards like Abhorrent Overlord , Abyssal Horror , Acidic Slime , Soul of the Harvest , Kresh the Bloodbraided , Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper , Shattergang Brothers , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Archdemon of Unx , Artillerize , Barter in Blood , Harvester of Souls , Zealous Conscripts etc. are amazing additions to your deck. You could probably throw in everything I listed from a card shop or online for less than $8 to seriously improve this deck. Also, get a Rise from the Grave or Torrent of Souls in this deck! You have Attrition , Mind Rot , you could get a rakdos return to stop your opponents card draw, yet the thing you are missing out on in that combo is reanimating your opponent's creature.

If you were really looking to spend some heavier cash, I would use Birthing Pod , Grave Titan , Sheoldred, Whispering One , and more.

In all serious, you don't want Feral Incarnation , Lava Axe , Cone of Flame , Mugging , Traitorous Instinct , Ornithopter , Karametra's Favor , or Siege Wurm in the deck. These things are all fairly detrimental to the style you're playing for one reason or another.

In this Jund style, you really want to overwhelm your opponent with bomb creatures that you bring right back when they die. The only serious control you would need is board wipe for things getting out of control on your opponent's side. For this, I recommend Life's Finale , Bonfire of the Damned , or Perilous Vault . My favorite is the vault because it exiles everything, but If you go with it, make sure you kill as much of your own stuff as you can before you trigger it!
