nice bit blasts


by Mykrob56 on 2010-03-13 04:47 CET

Alot of jund players are cutting Blasts down or out completely. Only seeing two of them in those lists isn't surprising to me...


by Super_Prep on 2010-03-13 05:28 CET

I see, so Weedmonkey can still play magic?

This top 4 is kinda familiar.


by mrwegle on 2010-03-13 05:47 CET

OBW jund will when your deck is 70-30 vs it, but u play vs deck that playes 4 herdon crab.

you're an idiot

I like Weed's deck.

Equip the Basalisk Collar to a Nightwak to give it double deathtouch AND double lifelink. WICKED TECH!


by maximiliano on 2010-03-13 07:35 CET

go go Brazil!!!!!

If only that still worked. As static abilities, multiple instances of them are redundant.


by Weedmonkey on 2010-03-13 08:33 CET

I still need to figure out an effective SB plan for Jund. There's 14 cards i find myself trying to bring in (everything bar the second Collar) but it feels excessive. As it stands the matchup with a proficient Jund pilot comes down to a draw-off, although a mediocre player will get blown out of the water.

Other than that, I like the feel of the deck :D


by Krastino on 2010-03-13 10:36 CET

Pegacrhis, why didn't u play Cancel md and played 4 Flashfreeze and 4 Negate? You risk to have a lot of dead cards in some situations...I still prefer the Chapin's approach....
And what about Baneslayer? Where they good in the maindeck? And Relic seems a lot useless...


by Krastino on 2010-03-13 11:30 CET

Maximiliano, were the persecutor any good? I mean, in the mirror is better to have them or Siega gang? and vs other decks? would u play them again?


by Mengu09 on 2010-03-13 11:33 CET

krasto i tested that deck since chapin played it, the best version is his with -1 purge +1 pte.

maybe the sb is very 1x.

obv baneslayer sb vs aggro he sided out removal and u win with those.
relic are obv a shit as cancel not md.
cancel best counter in t2 actually how can't u play it in a counter deck.


by Lynolf on 2010-03-13 11:48 CET

If only I had more time to play the trial, I would have crushed these Jund decks so badly... Oh well.


by maximiliano on 2010-03-13 15:03 CET

persecutor is very good vs controls because is very fast card and powered vs mirror is good too


by Krastino on 2010-03-13 15:04 CET

so are u saying that is better than Siege Gang? Could it be the card the makes the difference in mirror?


by maximiliano on 2010-03-13 15:25 CET

yes makes diference 6 damage fly makes diference..


by OldBear on 2010-03-13 15:30 CET

Bit blast was removed from jund decks at the pt as a nod to the uw control deck, which they were next to dead against. Always good idea to meta your deck to be stonger vs control at a pt as pro's just love control.


by SUPER_X on 2010-03-13 16:17 CET

go pili pala go

as you can see from finals, Persecutor really made the difference in the mirror!

Long Post:
First of all I'd like to point out I only lost to time, even though I was ahead when it was called. I didnt say anything cause the game was close to ending and i was just gonna let it play out but then next turn he attacked me then pulled the time card on me. It was my mistake and no way should I have lost. Also he got really lucky g2 when i had 7 1/1s on field with lethal next turn and he plays BBE and flips his 4th pulse for them and he wasnt nearly half way through his deck yet.

But anyways back to your questions I take a different approach to UW. Instead of just netdecking, I do and test what I feel is best. Instead of just stalling for either jace or iona win, I added 4 baneslayers main and can scrub out wins with it if needed. If they kill one so be it, I'll just play another. It cost 5 and already can win the game. Also this deck can lose life fast so I like the baneslayers to get out of kill range.

And so for added protection for them i put 4 negates and 4 flashfreeze. I find Cancel to be very overrated. I have alot of options for creatures anyways plus with 4 baneslayers I have more control over the board. So I'd rather have my counters to maximize on non creatures spells. And 4 flashfreeze is for the meta. Its even better in a tournament setting where your expecting Jund and the like. And flashfreeze is only dead to a few decks really anyways and I would just side in cancel for it when needed. I'll admit I was considering going 2 cancel and 2 flash but honestly Jund is the only matchup I'm really worried about. Everything else is pretty easy even the mirror when I have 4 baneslayers main.

And last point the 3 relic side were last minute. I admit it might seem iffy but last trial I scrubbed out first round to Crypt. So I didnt want to lose to the random graveyard decks. At first i had 1 O ring and 2 relic but I felt 4 O rings was a bit overkill so I took it out for 3 relics.

Also btw the Persecutors were nothing. Although I killed the only one I saw, I could have just as easily kept it on the field and just countered any of his removal for it with 4 negates and 4 flash main. Also it would get hate away from baneslayer too.


by Pegachris on 2010-03-13 16:34 CET

sorry for the wall of text :) I hope I was able to shed some light.

The joke ---->

Now you can also give targets for their removal. GJ!

No baneslayers MD is clearly right with the abundance of md removal in standard decks nowadays.
Also whining cuz he had 4 pulses vs UW CONTROL is laughable at best.


About jund: less than 4 sgc is just wrong atm :(


I won't comment on weed's deck cuz I don't want to make him sad :P


by Pegachris on 2010-03-13 17:01 CET

Its not that he used 4 pulses OBV, it was that he got them all really early. I think he played 3 pulses by his sixth turn maybe. And he flipped up the last one with elf which was his ONLY out to not getting 2-0ed.

Shooter, I don't think that Weed's deck is too bad, it's just that it's needs more direction, I think... The numbers seems strange to me. 3x baneslayer? 3x persecutor? 3x gatekeeper?mystic package with sigil of distinction? This deck needs to be streamlined a bit more I think. Almost everyone playing a mystic package nowadays is either playing a sparkmage package or a kor package. The mystic just doesn't seem to fit in this deck. I would take it out, and fit in the cards that need to be 4 ofs. Also, some good card advantage would be nice... Like sign in blood, which is almos like draw 2 cards for BB without a drawback in this deck, because of all the lifegain... So shooter, maybe Weed's deck isn't that bad, it's just needs a little push in the right direction.
