Phyrexian Purge Discussion

If you want a secret that I've never seen anyone else use, but found in my attempts to memorize every card from 1993-2016 (I started and memorized every card 2017-onward since that's when I came back):

Hey, Treasonous Ogre is a source of life lose that's also ramp. Necropotence, pay any amount of life and put that many cards into your hand. Heartless Hidetsugu, each player loses half of their life for a huge Greven attack that will most likely kill an opponent. Phyrexian Reclamation pay life to recur creatures. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, pay life to draw cards and Temple of Aclazotz is Diamond Valley.
Manabarbs players lose life when they tap lands. Phyrexian Purge, pay life to target and destroy potential blockers. Bolas's Citadel, lose life to cast cards. Dreadhorde Invasion, lose life for token that can grow in power to sac to Greven. Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper and Read the Bones, lose life to draw cards.
Good luck with your deck.

Wow, thank you for the well thought out response NV_1980! I really appreciate the input! I hadn't thought of Retribution of the Meek, that seems great in this deck as it gets rid of most really scary stuff and for the most part leaves my board alone. Admittedly it doesn't do much against token decks but I think that might be a good option for me especially as it is so low on my mana curve. It also got me thinking about maybe considering Fire Covenant or Phyrexian Purge. both cost me some life but can deal with a lot of threats and hopefully give me the turn I need to win. I do also really like Supreme Verdict as it can't be countered and doesn't stop me from regenerate my team, but again I'm just a little nervous about the double white in the cost. However, that's probably silly with the amount of fixing I run. I'm thinking retribution and one other card might make it into the deck but now I need to try and figure out what to cut (which is always the hardest part haha). Thanks again for the thoughts!

Arcane Signet is a strict upgrade over Fellwar Stone . I’ve also been trying to run Urborg , Vault of Whispers , Cabal Pit , etc. and other come into play black lands plus 1 snow covered swamp to make tainted pack for sure get what you need. I also like Fire Covenant and Phyrexian Purge over Toxic Deluge . They both dodge your Grenzo and kill problematic hate bears. They both imprint on chrome mox for red and black which comes up a bit when it’s a race to combo.

Aye, Jund Hate is a very fun deck type. I have a Jund Hate deck as well using the orignal Vaevictis. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/legend-legends-dragon-king-vaevictis-asmadi/ I recommend checking it out to give ya some ideas.
First thing Yawgmoth Bargain and Strategy, Schmategy is banned in commander so you can't use that.
So the actual first thing, Jund is an actual good color for nonbasic land destruction. So if you want you can go all basic lands and use some powerful nonbasic hate like Destructive Flow , Ruination , and Magus of the Moon is pretty solid cards. Also because jund has access to a lot of solid green ramp spells. So you can get your mana fixing through ramp spells. I never really had an issue in my Vaevictis deck which goes all basic.
I hope some of these ideas help out. But overall it seems like a really cool deck. Hope ya have fun playing with it.

I'd consider adding Zealous Conscripts and even Conquering Manticore if you feel like a throwback. I feel like Final Parting is also a must. I don't love Bolas's Citadel or Fire Covenant but I could be wrong. I like the pay life mechanics you have, but they do rely on Grevan attacking to be useful, and if hes killed in response to them it can be costly. Same with Phyrexian Purge I worry you have too much draining yourself to last in a multiplayer game. Withh all your card draw, you could probably cut 1 or 2 lands, and maybe even Ancient Craving but that is up to you. Cauldron of Souls could also be a good add, as the persist is kinda nice.

What a fantastic build. I'm happy to see you've evolved it beyond it's beginnings. Your depth of explanation in choices and strategy really brings this list to life.
Since you've been through my list, rather than recommend cards, I'll just point out that in my own meta, a few under-sung cards really shined through:
Descent of the Dragons - being able to blast a few problem creatures out of the way in addition to hitting my own land is nice.
Phyrexian Purge - 3 life per target doesn't matter much when you've got an army.
Xenagos, the Reveler - The +1 while lands are animated pretty much lets me drop whatever is left in my hand.
Happy brewing, neighbor!
