Description

Jund Midrange is the most versatile deck in Magic the Gathering. Goyf, LotV, and Bob join forces to strip your opponent of their resources and their best intentions. This powerhouse refuses to die with Goblin Rabblemaster joining the team to get in and hit hard with an army of Goblins pumping him to victory. Well, ..... That's the plan anyways. Kill everything in sight until there is nothing left in the way and then run them over with Raging Ravines and efficient threats.

I've done my best to highlight the key cards in the deck and the Jund package in general. There are a handful of flexible slots in the deck list and infinitely many ways to Jund 'Em Out. Give it a go and Happy Junding!

Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated. +1 Upvote If you like the deck!

Abrupt Decay (1-2): Hits most of what the creature removal package doesn't. Enchantments, Artifacts, and a handful of annoying planeswalkers. Also, great against Merfolk as it kills Kira, Great Glass-Spinner since it can't be countered. Don't forget about Blood Moon

Fatal Push (3-4): Great removal, especially in conjunction with all of the fetch lands. Hits 90% of threats in modern. I don't feel a full playset is necessary especially since we're in red. We have acces to Terminate and Bolt so 3 seems like where we want to be with Push.

Terminate (2-3): Great for killing off a big creature like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or big eldrazi.

Damnation (0-1): Board wipe for anything going wide.

Slaughter Pact (0-1): Protects Liliana of the Veil, general catch all for when tapped out. This card is not run in most builds but is very meta dependent. Good against burn.

Lightning Bolt (2-4): The reason Jund plays red. One mana burn that can close out the late game or burn out a creature/planeswalker early on.

Kolaghan's Command (1-2): Great against artifacts and often gets back a Dark Confidant or Tarmogoyf once stabilized.

Maelstrom Pulse (1-2): Catch all removal for tokens, planeswalkers, and any problem permanent.

Kozilek's Return (0-2): Instant speed board wipe against anything going wide.

Tarmogoyf (4): Easily a 4/5 or occasionally a 5/6 by turn 3. Out sizes most large creatures late in the game.

Goblin Rabblemaster (0-2): In the current meta, Rabblemaster is a fast clock and gives the deck a bit of an aggro side.

Raging Ravine (3-4): Can be a win condition all on its own if the board state is controlled. Also helps keep hands that are a little heavy on lands.

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip (1): Gains life and an extra body when he enters and interferes with bounce or flicker strategies. Also, helps stabilize against aggro decks in general.

Scavenging Ooze (2): Can get really big late game while gaining back life as needed. Removes targets for Kolaghan's Command and Snapcaster Mage. Extra green mana sources to feed it.

Dark Confidant (4): Helps grind against other Midrange decks like Abzan, Grixis, and the mirror.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (1): Great stabilizer. Builds zombies whenever we kill something, (Happens a lot) and gains a substantial amount of life back. Can be underwhelming against big creatures without removal. Pairs up perfectly with Dark Confidant

Tasigur, the Golden Fang (0-1): Can act as a 5th Tarmogoyf.

Grim Lavamancer (0-1): Great for getting damage through when nothing else will. Consistent burn that must be dealt with.

Inquisition of Kozilek (3-4): Turn one is all about disruption. Great for early threats that you can't deal with otherwise.

Thoughtseize (2-3): Redundancy for IoK. Gets bigger targets than IoK. The life loss needs to be a balancing act between fetch/shock lands and Bob, paying 2 life for discard adds up quick.

Liliana of the Veil (3-4): Locks out the opponent once you've stabilized. Discard and removal in one package that needs to be answered.

Liliana, the Last Hope (1-2): Flexible planeswalker. With the rules change you want both Liliana's out together to control the board state.

While none of this is final in any way, I've tried to come up with SOME attempt at a sideboard guide based on some decks I can think of in the current meta. Any suggestions for sideboard would be greatly appreciated.

So I had high hopes for this event.
I faced Jeskai Through the Breach round one and literally had no chance. I didn't find my discard spells and turns 1-5 I couldn't stick anything on the board. He Through the Breached Emrakul and that was game. Game 2 was pretty much identical.

Round 2 I was still thinking positive hat I could finish 3-1. I played Bant Knightfall and held a pretty good game. Game one he hit his combo and game two I took with ease. Game three was pretty low action on both sides. I made a bad choice with Thoughtseize taking Courser of Kruphix instead of Retreat to Coralhelm. That decision came back to haunt me. I also, cracked my Nihil Spellbomb a few turns before he went off. "That's the first timed I've hit the combo twice in one round." -_- Thanks.

Round 3 I literally didn't have time to get to the front counter and drop out so Round 3 was game on. I had to win something.
I played Abzan Company. One of the matches I had tuned my deck for. Game 1 turn 2 Grafdigger's Cage. Man that felt good. We traded back and forth games 1 and 2. Game 3 was a blow-out. I had so much removal that game and he just couldn't stick anything on the board. He was Junded.

Finally.

Round 4: Standings went up and I was in 9th. Prizes went to Top 8 (A mere 16 people showed up so it wasn't great. But still...).I sat down for the final round before Top 8 and Turn one thoughtseize reveals Jeskai Through the Breach. He got there by Turn 6 or 7 and I scooped them up and went home.

It was a learning experience for sure but all in all I went 1-3 for the day. A lousy showing for this deck. I will be back to FNM for a while and I will put an update out when I have some more data to see if Jund can be salvaged in the current meta. I have some ideas up my sleeve that might make it work.
