I feel like you may be a bit too all in on cards like Poison-Tip Archer. It really feels like you're trying to play aristocrats, but Jund just isn't the best combo for it. Your deck can make decent amount of tokens, but most of these death triggers require actual creatures to be dying and you only run 26, most of which are cards you don't actually want to sacrifice. You also aren't even running nearly enough sacrifice outlets, certainly your commander makes a good sacrifice outlet, but 3 mana is a lot to pay if you plan to do so repeatedly across the course of the game, and this commander is fragile to removal and will get costly quickly.

I'd likely cut down on cards like Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith, Anax, Hardened in the Forge, and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper. Then focus more on value generation, cheap cards that generate more resources. Such as Mycosynth Wellspring, Ichor Wellspring, Goldspan Dragon, Tireless Tracker, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, and Courser of Kruphix.

Thanks!

Its not just centered around Fynn. Fynn has a big part of the team but thats why I have, Triumph of the Hordes or Blightsteel Colossus to keep the infect team up and running. Incomming cards are lands such as Inkmoth or Quagmire and Dryad and thinking of switch or put in Eldritch Evolution too.

The artifacts are not the main focus with Glissas trigger just an helpfull way to brig them back, when death triggers comes around. And shes a helpfull offensive/defender with her first strike, deathtouch. And theres more ways than just Fynn. For example: Finale of Devastation or Poison-Tip Archer.

I like your input, and I was thinking of making it Green from the start, but wasnt happy with my ideas and though Glissa did a better work making it harder for my playgroup with blocks or atks against me.

Lotus_elise Lathril was my first commander deck and intro into Magic so it’s hard for me to part with her and this build lol. I have seen Meren played and it’s nasty with those experience counters. My new favorite addition to this Deck was the Damnation being used with Poison-Tip Archer. With enough tokens it can become lethal.

Thanks goodair for the suggestions! Chatterfang, Squirrel General, Pitiless Plunderer, Poison-Tip Archer, and Liliana, Dreadhorde General all seem fantastic. Any ideas on what to cut? Not too sure about bastion and garruk for this deck.

Hey, good to see another player building around -1/-1 counters!! I’ve got my own build here, which has gone done quite a different direction, but i’ve tried to detail the archtypes problems and solutions there.

For your deck, i have the following suggestions:

  • Devoted Druid is better than Channeler Initiate , in that we are guaranteed to get two counter-triggers, and it can provide a lot of fast ramp for a big play on turn 3.

  • Even with a mana dork, I think your land count looks a little too low. Your deck has a lot of 3 & 4 drops, so i’d expect 23-24 lands?

  • Beseech the Queen feels super slow. This archtype is already one that struggles to keep up with the modern meta, I really don’t think we have time to be going off looking for a specific card for the entirety of a turn.

  • I’m suprised you’re running Poison-Tip Archer and Might of the Masses , because they dilute the main plan of profitting from the counters.

  • imo i’d run more Black Sun's Zenith instead of the Blowfly Infestation . The enchant is slow and can backfire, while Black Sun’s can pretty much win the game on the spot if a Nest or Hapatra is in play.

  • I feels like you’ve got too much focus of managing counters on your own stuff, instead of inflicting misery on your opponent. The bug pull for this archtype is enacting our plan sets the opponents plan back - if we’re not actively disrupting we lose some of our benefits. I’m surprised to not see stuff like Fume Spitter , Grind , or Skinrender here.

Hi DarthVincentius, nice build! You have Scurry Oak in your list, you might want to add Ivy Lane Denizen , to top that off Poison-Tip Archer for the win, saccing the squirrels.
