Darkshadow327 on LGS has Japanese Dark Ascension ...

So I was able to visit my LGS earlier this evening and get 2 packs, this is what I got (you would be interested in this DiverDown):

Overall opening this pack was pretty cool. It was suspenseful too since I didn't know what most of the cards were (I did recognize a few by art).

Initial thoughts: Your curve is very 3 mana heavy, this is good and bad, means you can flood early, but leads to some dead draws late, assuming good draws, this will be fine.

With a curve so low, you may not need high mana manarocks like Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron etc. Orzhov Signet and other 2 mana rocks may be better in its place.

if you have Soul Warden you'll want her sister, Soul's Attendant

You have a lot of ETB effects. Maybe you should have some flicker cards, or ETB abuse cards like Panharmonicon Eerie Interlude SkybindAngel of Condemnation Vizier of Deferment

For the amount of life you gain, Rhox Faithmender may be good in this deck. Big emphasis on may though.

For the amount of recursion you have, you need more sacrifice outlets. Diamond Valley Miren, the Moaning Well Phyrexian Tower Innocent Blood Vampiric Rites maybe even Carnage Altar Diabolic IntentDisciple of Griselbrand Hidden Stockpile Skirsdag Flayer Ashnod's Altar Attrition Bontu the Glorified

Oh, you sorta require Grave Pact I know it has a HUGE black requirement, but it's very much required in this sort of deck.

Some cards I'd consider cutting:

Arashin Cleric not good enough.

Cruel Tutor why not Imperial Seal or Vampiric Tutor?

Greed you already have Erebos, God of the Dead you may as well replace with something better like Yawgmoth's Bargain Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip that being said, you need more card draw. So maybe grab Necropotence or some of the other draw cards I've recommended here.

Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron for what was already said above

Some misc cards/tings (boom) you may want to consider:

No Rest for the Wicked Renounce Selfless Spirit as boardwipe hate

Doomed Necromancer Pious Evangel  Flip

Enchantment tribal? Constellation is a fun mechanic.

You can eliminate a couple of cards, maximize a few others, and make this deck work a lot better. I would remove Diabolic Tutor, Elder Cathar, Skirsdag Flayer, and Skirsdag High Priest. That gives you 6 spots for maxing other cards. I would add 1 Champion of the Parish, 3 Ravenous Demon  Flip, and 2 Grand Abolisher. I like your deck and have a similar one.

UnleashedHavoc, Human sacrifice tribal is probably possible in Jund colors, though I expect it'd be weaker without W. Deranged Outcast, Obsessive Skinner, Tooth Collector, Skirsdag Flayer, Falkenrath Aristocrat, off the top of my head. Anything Skirsdag, really. And there are probably plenty of human warriors, too. You could add to that by putting in demons like Ravenous Demon  Flip, I think. Does that sound like a direction you're leaning? It's less of a go-wide, and more of a "buff up individual creatures really really big". Which is still valid, for sure.
