Vial Smasher in Jund?

Legacy forum

Hey y'all... Just a thought I had. Is Vial Smasher the Fierce a viable include in Jund? She makes all of our spells hurt the opponent which can sort of offset the damage taken from Dark Confidant, and she makes the Grove of the Burnwillows and Punishing Fire combo hurt much more. I feel like a one-of in the maindeck could do work, especially because you could cascade into her through Bloodbraid Elf.

Maybe, I guess? She's pretty slow and you don't run any of the good ways to break her ability (Fireblast or Tasigur, the Golden Fang). It might be worth testing, but I have a feeling she's better in the sideboard against slower decks.

I've considered it and she definitely has potential. Against other fair decks or in grindy matches, she seems like she could close out the game rather quickly. I've considered her in Burn even, but I think decks like Grixis Delver and Jund would make better use of her.

Making every spell you cast into direct damage is quite appealing. I'm going to play with 1-2x main and 1x in the side.

aeonstoremyliver: I saw her first in a Grixis delver list, but I thought she would be good in Jund too. Let me know how she plays for you.
