I'll look into it! Do you have a username I should look for?

Out of those, I think Discord is the best option. It's still private, but it's for personal use rather than professional.

I don't have Discord, but I'm game to set up some other channel for communication. This is definitely not ideal. I can look into Discord, but I could do this via Signal, Slack, FB Messenger, etc. as well.

Khunzo Do you have Discord (or similar)? I think that would be an easier method of setting up a time to get a game on XMage, and of communicating in general.

I haven't played with it yet, I haven't had time. Unfortunately, I won't have time tonight. Sorry. The Clover deck does look powerful, and I'm trying to think through the implications for Bant Dance and on the meta in general. I think it was a very good meta snipe.

Hey! I should have some time to mess with XMage tonight if you are interested.

Also, have you played around with the Temur Clover deck that won the Arena open last weekend? It seems crazy fun.

Titus7007 Have you run into any Temur Clover decks yet? Can you tell me how the matches typically go? They look pretty strong, and they run over Azorius Control, which is pretty similar to this.

20 lands is not good enough. You need at least 22, maybe as many as 24. Shock is not good in this meta. You need cheap fast creatures, rather than burn. Light Up the Stage is a necessity, to get you cards when you're running out of gas (so, turn 4-5 with aggro!).

Really, the core issue is going to come down to you not having Embercleave. It's busted, and never is it more busted than in this deck. Use proxies if this is casual, shell out the $100 or so if it's not.

I also thought it was good. A lot of clicks, and I wish my handsize was bigger, but pretty solid overall.

TL;DR: Trail of Crumbs is amazing (four-of), and idk about The Great Henge, but I wouldn't recommend it in Jund Sac. I don't see the efficency in Garruk, Cursed Huntsman either. You're going to be spending a ton of mana on other things (Trail of Crumbs activations), and Garruk is the top of your curve. He's lesser power than Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, and takes up more mana.

I'd encourage you to check out Piotr Glogowski's list from the World Championship (https://mtgazone.com/deck/jund-sacrifice-by-piotr-glogowski-magic-world-championship-xxvi-2020/).

I was pretty slow too. On the default 25-minute timer, I ran out of time and conceded a match.

Okay, I got XMage working. You up for standard on the US server sometime in the next 2 hours?

With mono-red, I think Dovin's Veto is an important card to bring in. It can stop a Stomp, it can deal with those rogue Infuriates, and MOST importantly, it deals with Embercleave.

That is a problem for such a large creature, but the number of times we can use him on an empty board (especially if you regard my theory about Sorcerous Spyglass and Dream Trawler) or use him for the ability is still staggering!

I hadn't thought about draw/discard for setting up dance.

I removed Destiny Spinner because I think Titus is right: it's the big spells getting countered most of the time, not the enchantments. With control back on top, it might be time to give her another try. I do still like Thryx, the Sudden Storm though. He's a threat, he makes Dance and Elspeth Conquers Death cheaper, and he comes out at instant-speed so we can catch control decks off-guard when they use end-step abilities.

The main thing I see is that there's nothing in your sideboard for dealing with mono-red aggro, which is still very much a tier-one deck and something to be aware of. That's the main reason I have Shatter the Sky over Time Wipe. Against aggro, they aren't getting a card anyway. Against slower decks, we have a decent chance of having Narset, Parter of Veils on the battlefield anyway. The cheaper cost on Shatter the Sky also helps with turns where we want to cast two spells.

That is much appreciated, Khunzo! Let me know what you think of the deck and what could be done to improve it.

Ajani, Strength of the Pride's zero ability only sweeps if you have 15 life more than your starting life total, so 35 life total. That puts a huge limit on him, and is why he's not used extensively outside of mono-white devotion.

Doesn't seem to have a lot of keepable hands. In the playtest feature, I rarely get a fast start, some sort of synergy, or enough lands to make anything worthwhile. It's a good deck, but you need cards that work well together. Goodstuff decks are rarely worth it.

I hadn't seen that interaction... Thank you! This is why playing the deck is more valuable than looking at the list alone.

I added the two Alseid of Life's Bountys, but I took out two The Birth of Meletis (since the meta seems to be shifting away from places where an 0/4 is useful), and one Flicker of Fate (I hate to do this, but it seemed the least powerful card I could take out). I also added one T3feri, because after watching Worlds, I am very much convinced of his power.
