I'd run Adaptive Automaton and Crystal Shard . Blasphemous Act as well. Unclaimed Territory is a must and I like Tarnished Citadel . Living Death could be kida killer if you let the king go to the graveyard, and given his cost it isnt a bad idea. I think Firemind Vessel is actually really good here. Cauldron of Souls could also be interesting. I don't love Nim Deathmantle never have. I really don't like Cover of Darkness .

Here are some cards that just get the ball rolling a bit faster:

Cryptolith Rite turns all your tokens and GrumGully into mana dorks to power out spells faster.

If you really like the "army in a box" creatures like Seige Gang Commander then you may want Avenger of Zendikar , Deep Forest Hermit , or Deranged Hermit . If you combine these cards with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's altar you can make infinite bodies by eating a token and the actual card to generate the 4 mana to pay for the mantle's trigger to recur it immediately. If you REALLY likes these effects I'd also suggest Panharmonicon to double up on the ETBs. Panharmonicon also doubles up Purphuros/Impact Tremors triggers.

Decimate is the best removal spell printed in Gruul right next to Hull Breach so use them.

Heroic Intervention , Lightning Greaves , Vexing Shusher , and Aspect of Mongoose are decent protection.

With your commander being able to pull artifacts out of your graveyard maybe some mana rocks that have sac abilities attactched to them could be good. Ones like Mind Stone , Hedron Archive , and Commander's Sphere

Maybe also a Tendershoot Dryad to build up a big army fast could also be good to have.

I would probably also include Nim Deathmantle to be able to bring back one of your creatures when they die.

Thank you. I have Grumgully, the Generous and Catacomb Sifter in a binder. Definitely putting those in. I'm going to go pick up Nim Deathmantle and Murderous Redcap tonight. I'm also thinking about Furnace Celebration , maybe Triskelion .

Hey there,

Going infinite in Jund is easy and fun. Any of the persist creatures (e.g. Murderous Redcap ) go infinite with Bad Mike or Grumgully, the Generous . All you need is a free sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar .

The altar creates an infinite loop with Nim Deathmantle and any creature card that brings two bodies to the field like the aforementioned persist dudes or others like Catacomb Sifter .

You can take a look at my Sek'kuar deck here for some inspiration.
