AFAIK all cards are spoiled now.

The set managed to get me surprisingly hopeful by including Pirates in the Outlaw batch, only to make me disappointed. At most, the new Malcolm can replace a french vanilla flier in my Admiral Beckett Brass deck. At least Cactus Preserve can do some work with Ghalta, Primal Hunger.

Felix Five-Boots and Vihaan, Goldwaker are pretty neat

Some ideas:

  • Dense Foliage: a hug option. If you aim for everyone's monsters (including) yours to die in glorious combat, it wouldn't do if someone could off them with spells.
  • Dictate of Karametra: more hug. Everyone has plenty of mana to cast their big creatures.
  • Fecundity: aaaaand more hug. Ensures that the death of any creature results in more opportunities to cast other big creatures.
  • Heartbeat of Spring: more mana for everyone!
  • Ghalta, Primal Hunger: seems to make sense in a green BC-deck.
  • Soul of the Harvest: such great draw in a deck featuring this many creatures. And a nice beat-stick to boot.
  • Vigor: opposing creatures can't hurt your creatures anymore; they can only strengthen them!
  • Zopandrel, Hunger Dominus: ensures the strength/toughness of your BC's beat those of the opponents' BC's.

Have fun with the brew!

Yes, I’ve looked at it before. It doesn’t do enough in my opinion. My baseline for justifying a beefy creature is Primeval Titan which is capable of chaining itself into more (essentially goes off at 7 mana most of the time) and swinging same turn it comes into play.

Ghalta, Primal Hunger is a creature without any protection that costs ~10 mana unless I am already super far ahead. If I am already far enough ahead that it is a comparable cost to Primeval Titan I’d much rather have something that does something the turn it comes down to help win that turn. If my board isn’t already big, I probably can’t cast it.

It’s unfortunately a win-more card, and a less impressive one than something like Mosswort Bridge or Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion is due to the tutorability of lands in the deck.

Have you ever thought of adding Ghalta, Primal Hunger?

Hey UltimateRoxas40!

I had the same thing, I just kept looking for that Jund deck that could scratch my graveyard itch. I tried Ziatora first but it was a bit lackluster, though in this deck it's an absolute beast. The deck has been an absolute blast to play since it just works out differently every time. The other day I killed the table with 18 damage from Cavalier of Flame dieing. Another game I won with the classic Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Lord of Extinction doing 48 damage. And another I just won with Bladewing, Deathless Tyrant and zombie tokens swarming the board.

Like it says in the primer my group has kind of avoided infinites for the most part. I've even ended up cutting Dockside Extortionist since it almost always could go infinite when it appeared. But if you intend to run some infinites I'd pitch Dockside Extortionist, Sprouting Thrinax, Pitiless Plunderer, Ruthless Technomancer and maybe also include Ashnod's Altar in addition to Phyrexian Altar(Which is already in) for infinite mana. Though for infinites I'd almost lean more into an aristocrats build rather than the stompy creatures since there's so much value to be had there.

I've considered Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip briefly but it never made the cut because stealing wasn't something I was after with this deck (I already have 2 decks with quite a few steal effects in them) and I felt that the flip cost was too expensive compared to throwing in something big and dumb like Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Though admittedly I might give Etali a look again because Ghoulcaller Gisa has been kind of dissapointing, so the new Etali might get to fill that slot instead.
