I can use the +1 throw away a Lingering Souls or extra emperions, same with Collective Brutality. And yes if they have removal they can kill the emperion, on top of the fact that most people have artifact kill on the side like Ancient Grudge. But it's pretty great if they don't have an answer, and I can always prioritize problematic cards such as Path to Exile with my targeted discard. And if he does die, the souls are there to attack from the other end of the spectrum. Cards that deal with the Emperion easily such as Path don't easily deal with soul tokens, and vice versa for cards that easily deal with Lingering Souls such as Anger of the Gods.

did make a couple changes after some testing, thanks for the advice.

I had to go up from 24 lands because I'm so heavy on 3 and 4 drops. There were too many games where I was missing hitting the Madcap Experiment on time and end up losing to a burn deck that I should have beaten. The Gideon is kind of just a fun of, a protective control element that can also attack for the win if he has to. It works out okay, even if most of the time he's just gumming up the works for them and wasting cards or attacks.

Don't know if anyone mentioned this yet, but hit their Aether Vial. Most D&T players I see will keep a "loose" hand with only 1 land because they have the vial, which means they can still power out their creatures and draw gas, flooding the board with more threats than you can answer. If you can hit the vial with a Thoughtseize, Stony Silence, or Ancient Grudge, there's a good chance they're going to lose that game and snagging those free wins is ultimately the key to winning the match, because sometimes they'll have a god hand and there's just nothing you can do to stop them.
The Aether Vial is what frees up their land for Wasteland and Rishadan Port, which is a key aspect of the deck. Take away the vial and they're spending their lands to cast creatures, and they're just a creature deck at that point. And you can beat a creature deck in Legacy any day. Just throw down a Toxic Deluge and wave goodbye to a board of white weenies.

$100 won't get you a Jund deck in Modern. Don't be intimidated by the card pool. It's a lot to learn up front but the cards don't change like they do in Standard either. Serum Visions is the same card now as it was 5 years ago, as is Thoughtseize. It's actually easier to follow updates to the format once you've learned the staple cards and decks.
The easiest way to do a manabase for a 3 color deck is to count up all they symbols for each of the colors. Write them down if you have to. Then you just balance it like a fraction. If you have 8 blue symbols and 4 white symbols, that means you need 2 Islands for every 1 Plains. Try to avoid double color symbols in more than one color if you can.
