So I've noticed a theme to your Orzhov deck names, and I must know, will we ever see the dream Orzhov girl?

Also, half of your 30 creatures could be recycled via Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker for extra value, as well as acting as a lightning rod over your commander.

Also also, with piti-plund and words of waste, geths grimoire is a neat little synergy. If you wanted it to combo, Dark Prophecy or Erebos, Bleak-Hearted would do the trick! Likewise, adding in Waste Not would be immensely helpful. (For the prophecy, if you words of waste before resolving its trigger, you shouldn't lose the life as you no longer draw the card, but i may be wrong.)

Maybe check Bone Miser. Its a $2 creature version of Waste Not.

Okay, this is a really weird suggestion, buuut, a card that maybe perhaps would be really cool and might actually have really neat synergy with the Death's Shadow would be Varolz, the Scar-Striped. Basically, with Varolz out, you can scavenge the Death's Shadow for one mana to put 13 plus 1 plus 1 counters on a creature. And with the way you like to discard your opponent's cards as well as your own cards with stuff like Liliana of the Veil, getting a Death's Shadow into the grave won't actually be that hard to do.

Same goes with Kroxa if you want fast and easy power without having to pay for his escape cost. You get 6 counters for 2 mana effectively.

However, Varloz would fundamentally alter the strategy of this deck, so I just thought he was a neat idea to put on standby.

If you wanna actually go down the discard route in Jund, you can get some cards that have huge payoffs for getting rid of your opponent's hand, like Waste Not, Tourach, Dread Cantor, Dauthi Voidwalker and Quest for the Nihil Stone.

Im not quite certain how you'd be able to balance out the amount of life that you would find yourself nonchalantly throwing away without accidentally killing yourself or leaving yourself open to some lightning bolts. Mana bases in these tricolor decks are definitely not my strong suit. Maybe you can afford to replace some of the dual fetch lands with a playset of Fabled Passage?

This can definitely be a scary deck if you find a particular focus and really hone in on it, but I feel like Im a little underqualified to help make this as competitive as you want it to be.

Thanks for a bit of feedback Dangerwillrobinson79! When I started out this deck I considered putting in Waste Not and Urza's Incubator but decided not to. Also I noticed Consuming Aberration in your deck which was another card I was considering putting in because of how big I might make it and it combos with Undead Alchemist. Another thing I considered as an alternate win condition was Liliana's Contract since there were some other demons I was considering putting in to generate even more value like Indulgent Tormentor, Reaper from the Abyss, or Kothophed, Soul Hoarder to name a few that I think might work well in this deck. Also Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is more of a maybe card since I don't know if I want to keep it in or not.

you have a good brew going. Consider adding Wonder to make them fly. It's pretty easy to get it into the graveyard. I built G&G and it's not my most powerful but it's still my favorite. Spendy cards like Coat of Arms, Waste Not and Urza's Incubator are gross in it. Here's mine for some other card ideas. Gisa & Geralf's nifty little undeath machine

Thanks Junkygoatgibblets! I ordered Waste Not this morning after seeing your list. My maybe board on this is really just any zombie card I find that I think might be fun. I've used several of them. Always trying to make this deck both fun and dangerous. So far, it's usually just fun.

I've considered both and have been trying to figure out HOW to fit it in and what to swap out. Personally I really enjoy Waste not, as it helps with those pesky discard decks, but also if you want to build more towards forceful discard it definitely benefits you. The group I play with is perfect for Waste Not, a lot of people play force draw (making other people draw and discard) so I can usually amass quite a bit of utility out of it.

Beefy! I have a similar G&G build. It's one of my favorites to play but I'm constantly tweaking it. Have you gotten good results from Waste Not I've been considering adding it. This deck would love Dictate of Erebos or Throne of the God-Pharaoh? Both play great in here.
