Hey there, I used to play Jund in the past and this looks fairly similar to how the deck used to play. I would suggest adding Bloodbraid Elf since it benefits from your Ignoble Hierarch as well as giving you the huge advantage when you get the cascade into Kolaghan's Command. Death's Shadow is a great way to close out the game but other than self damage from lands and Thoughtseize it seems a bit difficult to justify. Dark Confidant and Liliana of the Veil make this deck want to take a more midrange approach to modern. Cards like Assassin's Trophy are great for getting rid of threats Jund normally can't but does give your opponent an additional mana which goes against the early to mid game plan. I'd recommend cutting 2 of those and maybe putting them into the sideboard to bring it at least 2 Fatal Push mainboard to deal with the heavy aggro approach most modern decks are nowadays. Hope this helps you some and keep on playing Jund!

Thoughts on updating? I'm working on a list now using The Ozolith and Everlasting Torment.

I don't know if I should go heavy with dmgremoval and Soul-Scar Mage or combo out.

I'm also thinking Utopia Sprawl for ramp but Bloodbraid Elf would be interesting.

Black Sun's Zenith and Nest of Scarabs seems insane but I'm also interested in that new The Meathook Massacre

I would recommend Madcap Skills over Ordeal of Purphoros. Gives your creatures a solid bonus plus evasion. Bloodbraid Elf would also be solid here as a finisher.

Clan of Bloodbraided 2

Legendary Enchantment-MR

Creatures you control gain +2/0 and trample

Whenever you creature you control destroys a creatures it gains a +1/+1 counter and than cascades

: Target creature you control fights another creature or planeswalker you don't control (Planeswalker power and toughness are equal to their loyalty)

This is for a Kresh the Bloodbraided Precon. It takes inspiration from both Kresh himself and Bloodbraid Elf in that thier clan gets stronger by killing (Kresh) and can cascade (Elf) but they have to kill other creatures to gain both. This helps Kresh in two ways make your creatures bigger so when they die he get more counters and cascade can add more creatures giving him more bodies and fuel

Using the flavor texts from these cards Burn Bright, Ghor-Clan Rampager, Gruul War Chant, Skylasher make creature called Kroshkar, Gruul Shamen (the flavor text is to help you if need it)

The way Timmy worded it, it would get that extra counter before damage.


Skyshroud Ambush is worded like “when that creature wins the fight” which is the same thing as saying survives.

I think this card is sweet and reminds me of Bloodbraid Elf a little bit, but even better because the removal spell that BBE usually finds is tacked right into the ability!

I also love seeing people’s ideas of planeswalkers before they got their spark

Can we see Elspeth next?!

Hi cyeRunner, thanks for the suggestions.

I have added Bloodbraid Elf.

Personally I think Sedgemoor Witch is gorgeous!! Love the foreground, background, everything! The girl has real presence. Strangely, there looks like something is wrong with her eyes when I zoom ALL the way in (eyebrows to short? to much mascara maybe?). Alway, I still love that one. It's in.

I'm going to let the others go. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni feels like stepping into furries (another short step and descend to crinkling)

Sisters of Stone Death is good art work but I had to stop and read the text to find that the girl is not actually being attacked.

Spellstutter Sprite is... ...can I say lazy. Don't get me wrong, I like different styles and I'm sure this artist has done other great staff but I'm not into this one. The wings are doing nothing, like she is not even in the air. The background is real lazy. Her toes are just a way for the artist to shortcut their work and not even bother. Why are her antenna going through her tiara? Did she drill holes in it? Also nothing original or risk taking in it.

Thanks all the same : )

some thoughts:

  • If you're planning to win the game through self-mill, then it feels like your options to do so are fairly non-optimal. Stuff like Glimpse the Unthinkable, Stinkweed Imp, Gloom Surgeon, Hedron Crab, Altar of Dementia and Life from the Loam all seem to be good options for accelerating you towards emptying your deck.

  • Carrying on from the previous point, your options to win by actually milling yourself seem really limited, just being Jace, Wielder of Mysteries. I would have expected to see some Thassa's Oracle and/or Laboratory Maniac as backup.

  • Modern is a really fast format, and seeing cards costing 4cmc or above is quite rare without running a bunch of dedicated ramp. As an example, a midrange deck like Jund runs just a playset of Bloodbraid Elf, and nothing else above 3cmc. I think you're going to really struggle to cast most of your cards with the crazy-high casting costs they currently have - and I think you should consider dropping all-but 4ish cards at the slots of 4cmc and above.
