Noble Hierarch Discussion
18 hours ago
The first thing I notice is that this deck lacks 1-drops. Since you're trying to be aggro, you pretty much have to play 1-drops or you'll be left behind by every deck in the format. Noble Hierarch and Aether Vial are the 2 best, however they're prohibively expensive. I'd recommend 4 Birds of Paradise and 4 Dryad Militant.

Without a description, I can't see your thought process behind some card choices, but as an Infect player myself I can make some suggestions. The full set of Inkmoth Nexus is an absolute must. This card is so good against any matchup, except maybe hyper agressive strategies. 4 Blossoming Defense is necessary because in this day and age with Fatal Push running amok you need as much protection as possible, and it is versatile and doubles as a pump. Might of Old Krosa should be a 4 of because +4/+4 for one Green is too good to pass up. 21 lands is a lot for this deck, I run 19 personally. There's some finicky stuff with your spells I don't really agree with, but i'm assuming you're on a budget so Noble Hierarch and Fetch Lands and stuff are probably out of the question. If you want, here's my deck.

In spite of having more effect, Oracle of Mul Daya is not as good as Courser of Kruphix. It has a lot smaller body (dies to Lightning Bolt) and higher casting cost (can't be cascaded by Bloodbraid Elf).
I'm not really believing in mana dorks either - imagine cascading for something with impact, and coming up with Elvish Mystic. Not really what you'd want. Noble Hierarch at least has the exalted ability going for it, but its mana is off-color. Also, it has a pretty heavy pricetag, more than most fetch or shock lands.
I don't think there's any reasonable way to get to play your top-library card for free. But just to get more card advantage, you could perhaps play Dire Fleet Daredevil - a lot of match-ups could really turn around on that one. In others it would probably be rather irrelevant and just wait to be boarded out.
I don't think you should play a passive card like Crown of Convergence; a scenario with plenty of creatures on your side, working magic on your topdeck is nice, but drawing it and playing it on an empty table is bad.

Just putting in my two cents here.
I personally think that Path to Exile is severely overrated. Sure, the land might not matter in some matches, but it WILL in most, especially with so many low-curve decks these days that would love a free land, like Death's Shadow decks, Young Pyromancer decks, and Affinity. It's also often necessary to kill mana dorks that come down turn one these days, and it's getting more important than ever before thanks to the threat of a turn 3 Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Path simply does not kill mana dorks, in an era when they are more common than ever. I accept it when there is no other reasonable 1-mana option besides things like Dismember, which I am fond of, but I see you are running Fatal Push as well. I would remove 1 Path to Exile to add a fourth Push. It still hits most of the meta: Tarmogoyf, Noble Hierarch, Death's Shadow, Dark Confidant, the aforementioned Pyromancer, and revolted, which is easily achieved by adding one or two more fetchlands, hits the new Bloodbraid Elf. I do recognize that Path is still the better option against Tron, Breach, and other go-over-Jace decks, and so I would add one in the sideboard, removing a Disdainful Stroke which serves the same purpose, but is one more mana.
Again, this is just my opinion and I recognize that you have had far more experience with the deck than I have, so if these are just the ramblings of a confused player, feel free to ignore this.

Secondly, I'm still on the fence if Blood Moon should be in the main or in the side. Personally, I like it side because you would like your colors even after Blood Moon is out, which forces you to have at least 1-2 Swamp and one Forest, which restricts your early game, but hey... let's work with this!
As for the mana-base, I would say:
2x Bloodstained Mire (possibly flip numbers with Foothills depending on cuts)
3x Forest (possibly lower depending on cuts)
1x Overgrown Tomb (2 if you move moon to the side)
1x Blood Crypt
so that is 24, which, with 4x 4-drops, is right around where you want to be.. Even though you are playing Blood Moon, you are going to want a decent amount of Man-Lands as, with typical Jund fashion, you will probably be top-decking later in the game, and will want to push damage if you don't hit the Blood Moon. With that said, we need to cut 2 from the main going form 22 -> 24.
Now let's talk about Noble Hierarch. Personally, I say cut it, as it seems underwhelming if not in your opener, and cascading into it is meh (it does give Exalted though...), but if you do keep it (because a T2 Lilly into T3 BBE is BROKEN), make it a 4-of and possibly cut a land to 23. If you cut it, maybe add another Grim Flayer or another Liliana of the Veil to make up for the one extra cut.
Let me say, Grim Flayer is ridiculous with Bloodbraid Elf, so maybe make that a 4-of and move Tireless Tracker to the board. I get it is color intensive, so the decision is, as always, ultimately up to you.
Let me also say that discard and conditional removal seems to be going down in priority with Bloodbraid Elf, so I wouldn't be opposed to going to 4x discard and maybe 2x Fatal Push for another Terminate or Dreadbore or Abrupt Decay (ehhhhh). Plus, that frees up your reliance on Swamp so earlier Forest doesn't seem that bad (to get there with BBE through a Blood Moon).
The sideboard - SPICY. Personally, i say cut the white and have more sideboard slots for what you really want to do, but I cannot say the BBE into Lingering Souls isn't tempting. Id remove the Surgical Extraction and add another Nihil Spellbomb and one Grafdigger's Cage because I feel that combo is low in priority right now, but that depends on your meta. Anger of the Gods also feels outclassed by Damnation, but I cannot argue against the Exile part - once again, meta dependent.
All in all, this seems to be fun! if you want to check out my BBE deck for some explenations, feel free... Junding Them w/ BBE... Good Luck!

i run Utopia Sprawls to be able to have 4 mana on turn 2, wich allows me to play the 4 mana core creatures. but having them on top isn't that bad since we're almost always able to shuffle via fetchs

Wouldn't Noble Hierarch be better than Utopia Sprawl? You wouldn't run into that problem of stopping if a Utopia Sprawl is on top, and its a T1 mana ramp as well. The only negative synergy I can see is not getting 2 mana from Kiora's Follower untaps.
