Thorn of the Black Rose is super sweet, and I'd recommend it -- it fills a similar role to Bob in modern Jund. Plus, it eats 1/1s or can trade for a fatty -- but the monarch token stays! Also good for Burn so you don't have to shock yourself with Night's Whisper.

I like the idea of Wickerbough Elder; probably very meta-dependent. The decks I faced yesterday would almost all have a target, but it's probably better to have Thorn of the Black Rose and a juicy sideboard to get to your hate cards faster.
Updating deck; as long as my LGS has 2x Thorn and 1x Monarch token, I'll play this build Thursday if all my cards arrive by then.

Hi there, i also have been testing a Jund deck for pauper, have you played many matches?
As for the card choices i really liked the Evolution Charm, it has some interesting modes and i was totally unaware of the card... i may also have to start using Shred Memory for tutoring. I also think that 4 Gurmag Angler is a little too much, you want to play at least one each game, but if you end up with 2 or 3 in hand it can be bad because you may not have fodder for all of them...
Other than that i would only suggest that you have Thorn of the Black Rose in your cardpool, the monarch can get handy in card advantage.
If you like you can go and check my deck and leave some opinion or just don't do it at all :D Jund Them All
+1 and keep on junding!!

Hi there, i also have been testing a Jund deck for pauper, if you want take a look at it: Jund Them All.
As you said, Jund is supposed to be built in a lot of diferent ways, so i can only suggest you some of the cards i use in mine so you can add them to your testing lot.
Durkwood Baloth is a card i didn't know about, and i will try it for sure, it must feel good to suspended it turn 1 :D
Apart from that, i just want to suggest a couple of creatures, Thorn of the Black Rose and Wickerbough Elder, monarch is a thing in pauper and card advantage is always good, the elder is mostly a versatile card, if you have a lot of white in your meta, get to hit a Journey to Nowhere while having a 4/4 body left on the field is great.
+1 and just JUND'EM ALL!!!

Okay. it seems like I need a lot more draw, so I'm going to move in the direction of permanents that draw cards, because they work better with malfegor. I'm also getting rid of a bunch more discard spells, and a couple draw cards that I think could be better.

Looks good so far...Here are some quick ideas for you...Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder makes 5 tokens just from casting your commander, if you feel like you run out of dorks too fast. Some more 1 power guys with cool ETB/death effects: Disciple of Phenax, Golgari Thug, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Pilgrim's Eye, & Thorn of the Black Rose. Living Death & Victimize to recover from removal. Some more permanents that will synergize: Gate to the Afterlife, Genesis Chamber, Dark Prophecy, Skullclamp. I'm not sure about a lot of the discard angle the more I think about it, discard can be very hard to make work in multiplayer. You may really have to go all in on that strategy to make it work well. Soldevi Adnate is a lesser known sac outlet that should be awesome. Nether Traitor keeps coming back for more fun. Hope this was helpful, happy gathering!!

Thorn of the Black Rose seems like a good fit here, even if it is just for flavor adding to the 'Tyrant's Choice' theme. It's starting to pop up more established builds, even replacing Gurmag in some cases.
