Then there is the tried and true Fulminator Mage.

You might want 1 Anger of the Gods in the sideboard but other than that I think you have a good deck here!
March 2, 2017 2:59 p.m.
Crumble is a good card too, you could go 1 of each of those.
March 2, 2017 3 p.m.
GreenisGod I've been playtesting the deck with -2 Grim Flayer, +1 Faithless Looting, +1 Griselbrand and I'm getting Vengeance into Griselbrand early more consistently. So there's a tradeoff of early pressure but I just don't get the +2/+2 proc early enough on flayer anyway since I don't have nearly enough discard for that.
March 3, 2017 8:22 a.m.
Yeah you also only run 4 spell types so it's kind of difficult to get the flayer off, you may want to try bloodghasts instead
March 3, 2017 9:02 a.m.
I don't know how much I like bloodghast as only a 2 of here compared to my ability to fire off griselbrand early more consistently
March 3, 2017 9:10 a.m.
Yeah you would probably want 4, not worth it, that's why I passed on him in mine too, at least for now. I like the look now, you may find that you need more hand disruption but I think you have a good deck here. You could go to 23 lands for another Inquisition or a Thoughtseize, Kolaghan's Command has been one of my best cards because of its utility.
March 3, 2017 9:41 a.m.
March 3, 2017 9:46 a.m.
Yeah I forgot about it earlier but it saved me last night, such a good card.
March 3, 2017 10:20 a.m.
I can see why, I'm gonna playtest with 3 commands and 1 fatal push. Gonna see if I get more utility out of that.
March 3, 2017 10:46 a.m.
It all depends on your mana curve, I think you have a low enough one that you could afford to put 3 in there. Its just a card that when its in your hand, you feel a little safer.
March 3, 2017 11:31 a.m.
I agree, it has much more utility than Fatal Push so better versatility for different situations.
March 3, 2017 12:54 p.m.
You could probably go down to 3 faithless lootings and keep 2 fatal push. Looting has flashback so you really don't need 4, especially since you have other ways to rid yourself of Grisel. Fatal push is so damn good, especially when you have so many fetches, you can always hit that revolt.
March 3, 2017 12:59 p.m.
GreenisGod what did your friend say about the deck?
March 4, 2017 1:59 a.m.
Same thing he said he with my deck, make sure you have enough hand disruption. The best of which is lili of course, but you could run a few thoughtseize for sure. The issue is, where I don't need anything like goryos to get my offense going, because I play pyromancers for a lot of my offense, I need more instants and sorceries than you. After modern masters forces Lilis price down, we both need to find room for her, she wins games on her own, just too good to not have 3 of her at least.
March 4, 2017 2:38 a.m.
I agree with you both, I really wanted her in the deck at any number, price isn't an issue for me. I say we work on finding a spot for at least a 3 of.
March 4, 2017 10:13 a.m.
-1 Grisel, -1 Kolaghan's. I'm not sure what else, but that's 2 spots at least.
March 4, 2017 11:46 a.m.
March 4, 2017 1:08 p.m.
If I do it how you suggest I would remove 1 Goryo's Vengeance as well
March 4, 2017 1:09 p.m.
March 4, 2017 1:12 p.m.
Maybe keep one surgical extraction, you never know when that card is gonna be super useful. Like against Snaps or Geist, or Bloodghast.
March 4, 2017 1:15 p.m.
Yeah I think you can afford to go down to 3 Grisels, the last thing you want is your hand to be flooded with an 8 cost creature, that's bound to happen if you have 3.
March 4, 2017 1:16 p.m.
I agree, I think I'm pretty solid here with the board I have.
March 4, 2017 2:54 p.m.
I love this deck idea. I played around with a jund variation of griselbrand but it was not working for me. So i revamped my deck into a Grixis Griselbrand with Jace Vryn Prodigy. Since then It has been doing wonders. Love this deck plus 1 for sure. Check out my grisel decks
March 7, 2017 7:52 a.m.
Hey I was originally running Jace Vryn's Prodigy but I swapped out the blue for red
March 7, 2017 12:24 p.m.
March 8, 2017 1:25 p.m.
Love the Safe Haven addition! That'll be a great combo with your Grisel. Life from the Loam is also a great card and works perfectly with the combo. I'm not as sure about Borborygmos, yeah he has trample and combos with your stuff but I think it might take away from the consistency. I'm not sure, I guess I would have to see it in action, I'm just a little skeptical, I think there are cheaper mana cost options that do similar things. I would just much rather have a 4th Lili than a big 8 cost Cyclops. You could even run Primeval Titan if you're going heavier on the land combos.
March 8, 2017 1:41 p.m.
March 8, 2017 1:48 p.m.
Probably another Loam will be best for consistency. Lili isn't gonna help your combo as much. It could go either way though, maybe start with Loam and if you don't like it then go full on Lili playset.
March 8, 2017 1:52 p.m.
Yeah I went a second Loam already, help to grab one early and get mana/graveyard interactions going faster.
March 8, 2017 1:56 p.m.
GreenisGod woohoo 1409 views and top 8 rank! Going for number 1!!! All in the first week too!
March 9, 2017 9:36 a.m.
Nice dude! Its come a long way in that short time lol
March 9, 2017 10:10 a.m.
Yessir! I wasn't expecting it to break the top 10 on the site but here we are! I'm super stoked right now! I'll be ordering the deck next week and I'll post tournament results as they roll in!
March 9, 2017 10:44 a.m.
Thank you for all your help, this deck wouldn't be herewithout your advice and input!
March 9, 2017 10:45 a.m.
This deck has some surprising similarities to my Jund Seismic Frog deck. Although mine is focused far more on the reanimation and land aspects, and is less jund goodstuff'ish.
Maybe you could get some inspiration! For instance, Raven's Crime is one of the best cards with Life from the Loam. Against a control matchup, getting Raven's Crime + Life makes the game pretty much unwinnable for your opponent.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. It seems better than inquisition here in my opinion.
March 10, 2017 9:21 a.m.
Yeah you may not get to choose a card but combined with Lili it won't matter, they won't have any cards
March 10, 2017 9:31 a.m.
Exactly. Ill just keep their hand dumped out at all times once I hit loam and crime
March 10, 2017 9:42 a.m.
March 10, 2017 4:16 p.m.
Love me some Ewit, you may find that you want bolts though. It's the most used card in magic for a reason. Maybe sideboard the scoozes instead?
March 10, 2017 10:11 p.m.
Fatal Push > Bolt
Don't need to hit people in the dome in jund.
March 10, 2017 10:14 p.m.
Oh, and an excellent alternative to Eternal Witness is Noxious Revival.
Sure, it puts it on top of your library and isn't a body, but it's instant speed and 0 mana can make up for it.
You might want to remove one Safe Haven or at least add one other land to your list though. They don't tap for mana, so currently you are running effectively 21 lands, too few for Jund! I'd go for 23 (+ safe haven making it 24)
If I were going to cut any cards for lands, it would probably be Terminate (as Fatal Push kills most stuff that scares us).

Jeezus, Fucking, Christ man! if i had an extra $1500 i'd build the shit out of this! i love me some Jund, and this is pretty epic! I LIKE WHAT YOU GOT! GOOD JOB!
March 11, 2017 8:58 a.m.
no problem man. I'm a homebrewer so i love seeing interesting decks and not just the same ol' thing. Check out my Phyrexian Obliterator deck. Granted I altered it from another build I saw, so it's not entirely my own making, but it was quite the investment...not nearly this much, but im very impressed with this deck.
March 11, 2017 9:15 a.m.
Will definitely check it out! Obliterator is nuts im about to build a bg draw reanimator around him myself!
March 11, 2017 9:29 a.m.
It also Looks like this deck while still pretty consistent, will have some akward draws where you draw Griselbrand without Faithless Looting to ditch him, resulting in Card disadvantage, or Goryo's Vengeance without the big dude in the grave.
I would think about reintroducing 1-2 Collective Brutality. Raven's Crime is good but its still not targeted. brutality offers another discard outlet if you draw Griselbrand and is really powerful against a bunch of decks. you can also ditch Faithless Looting for it and Flash it back for later value.
this deck has incredible flavour!
March 11, 2017 4:16 p.m.
TheAlexGnan thanks for the suggestions I've been reconsidering Fulminator Mage for that very reason, Collective Brutality has been discussed but it doesn't provide as much value as the Raven's Crime + Life from the Loam + Liliana of the Veil. And I rarely run into Gris without a discard option early. If there isn't onein my opening hand I have enough control options to draw into one within a few turns usually.
March 11, 2017 4:34 p.m.
but Fulminator Mage. in some very fringe cases Molten Rain is better because it hit Basics (the only Scenario i can think of is against rg ponza, killing an equipped Basic land). But generally speaking, fulminator is a ton better. he can swing or block if you Need him to, and of Course, Kolaghan's Command.
I would say the choice is very clear between those 2 land hate Options.
March 11, 2017 4:44 p.m.
March 12, 2017 11:58 a.m.
Yessir, unfortunately we only topped out at rank 4 though
March 14, 2017 4:43 p.m.
GreenisGod deck is ordered will have it by the end of next week!
March 14, 2017 8:22 p.m.
This looks a lot like Grishoalbrand
If you'd like, you could use Griselbrand's draw ability to draw through your deck, discarding Worldspine Wurm to Nourishing Shoal, then hucking all of your lands at your opponent's face with Borborygmos Enraged, but I also really appreciate this build. It looks really fun and good.
March 20, 2017 4:10 p.m.
I would say add some may deck artifacts mishras bauble and tarfire/ seal of fire will make the goyf be even bigger :)
March 20, 2017 4:11 p.m.
Oh jesus that would be a major overhaul on the deck to go that route. Not sure what I would even swap out for the shoal wurm combo. I'll try it out on xmage and see what I think though. And I've considered adding a one of enchant and artifact for the goyf but haven't found anything worthwhile. I'll check out your suggestions though thank you!
March 20, 2017 4:23 p.m.
I'll just Point out that those changes would make this deck Grishoalbrand, a Combo deck thats really quite old. At that Point, it would kinda stop being your creation and become an Iteration of a known archetype, and in a way loose its purpose, which is to be a phenomenally cool homebrew in jund colors ;)
March 20, 2017 5:28 p.m.
2 slight tweaks, -1 Eternal Witness -1 Kitchen Finks +1 Courser of Kruphix +1 Solemn Simulacrum. Need to playtest when I can, will update after. Both the swaps help the progression of the deck, getting lands out of the way to draw value. They also serve to beef Tarmogoyf as they will no doubt hit the yard.
March 20, 2017 9:29 p.m.
Deck seems sweet outside of the 1.5K price tag. But I guess that is the price you pay for Goyf and that sweet mana base.
