Thrumming Stone might be interesting. And Dark Confidant would probably be good.

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!

GrimlockVIII I’d like to keep it Death's Shadow-centric unless there’s a more compelling reason not to. I’m fortunate enough to already own the mana base, goyfs, shadows and 2 of the 3 Dark Confidant. I’d just need a couple odds and ends and I could have the complete package in paper for FNM, which is my goal. I’d like a very interactive Jund deck with a decent chance at answering most of the likeliest threats I’d encounter. I’m no pro, but I’m trying to improve my game and I feel this might be a good way to branch out.

Love the list! Some questions for your thoughts and experiences:

  • 24 lands feels like a lot with W&6 being able to bring them back. Do you feel like this number of lands is required even with a way to replay lands?

  • Notably you don't play Ignoble Hierarch and Dauthi Voidwalker. Any specific reason these don't make the cut?

  • I read through your notable new releases and wanted to ask what you thought of Graveyard Trespasser  Flip and Arlinn, the Pack's Hope  Flip. Arlinn is reminiscent of huntmaster and Trespasser has GY hate + 2-for-1's spot removal.

  • How often do you, if ever, play 2 Dark Confidant in a game? Currently running 1 (especially since I don't have any foil W&6), but I want to run more but I don't know if I can justify getting more than 1 in a game. Like if my life total can even handle it without inherent life gain.

Thanks for your dedication to the list and the page is wonderful :)

This deck looks fun! I love seeing other Meren decks. And no worries, plug away!

If there's just one card to take from my deck, it would be Dark Confidant. Losing life from that can be harsh at times, but it really boosts that hand. Plus, that's what Kokusho is there for and you don't really have high mana costs so wouldn't be that brutal :) I really think you should add Phyrexian Tower as that can be such a great sac outlet. I've never not used the two mana it's provided me. My current set up is brand new and haven't tested it out, but Vindictive Lich really seems like it's going to make my friends sigh which makes me very happy. One more suggestion is getting Vampiric Tutor bc if mike n trike are is your main goal then that add to your tutor possibilities.

I would drop the Dark Confidant. I also have been okay without BBE lately (it just doesn't do enough anymore). I think good additions here could be some combination of Seasoned Pyromancer and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger.

Deck looks super fun. A few suggestions: Dark Confidant, Skullclamp, Bolas's Citadel, Toxic Deluge, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Chainer, Dementia Master, Unfortunately, some of those can be expensive. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Caged Sun, or Gauntlet of Power could really turbocharge the mana base. Hope this helps!

StopShot on Commander Collection Black is hot …

If there was a single card that would have flipped the quality of this it would have been Imperial Seal. As for commanders, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Tinybones, Trinket Thief would have been nice value picks. Heck why not throw in a Dark Confidant or a Grave Pact?
