Whats up my name is John Kassari I top 8'd at San Diego PTQ with the following list:

// Lands
4 [ZEN] Arid Mesa
4 [ZEN] Marsh Flats
3 [WW] Lavaclaw Reaches
4 [M10] Dragonskull Summit
4 [R] Swamp (3)
4 [RAV] Plains (1)
2 [OV] Mountain

// Creatures
4 [WW] Abyssal Persecutor
4 [ROE] Wall of Omens

// Spells
4 [4E] Lightning Bolt
4 [ALA] Ajani Vengeant
4 [ALA] Blightning
3 [ZEN] Day of Judgment
4 [ROE] Inquisition of Kozilek
3 [LRW] Oblivion Ring
1 [ROE] Sarkhan the Mad
2 [ARB] Bituminous Blast
2 [FNM] Terminate

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [ZEN] Luminarch Ascension
SB: 2 [ARB] Thought Hemorrhage
SB: 3 [M10] Celestial Purge
SB: 2 [M10] Duress
SB: 4 [M10] Baneslayer Angel

I went 5-0-2 in the swiss and lost first round vs jund. I blightning'd him twice game 1 and he answered my 2 persecutor and ajani. Game 2 was very top deck intensive and he came out ahead with multipule bloodbraids. I'm trying to tweak it to have a higher percentage against jund.

I tried to tweak the list to 3 Inquisition of Kozilek 3 Ajani Vengeant and add 2 Bituminous Blast. I think now with that new Planeswalker deck 4 Ajani might be better. Any suggestions on what cards can make the jund matchup better?

I tried Tidehallowsculler - It timewalks for 1 turn and they bolt it or terminate it.
I want to try Gatekeeper but he is tripple black and that is rough on my mana.
Consuming Vapors is ok.. I never really tested with it and i'm not sure what it is better than.

I don't see how SugarShark

Its B...W...and R and its controlling in nature...

Nice list. I would go +1 DOJ (allies are murder) and +1 O-ring, since Bit Blast is useless in Polymorph and UW, UWr Control

inquisition is very very good but it's not duress and that seems 100% wrong. duress deals with every sacry card in the format, and all inquisition gives u over that is 1-3drop creatures /care.

yeah inquisition was amazing in that tourney vs jund in the swiss I was on the play with 1 terminate 2 inquisition and ajani turn 2 i played both inquisition to take out 2 blightnings .. and my opponents only play was putrid leech in any other situation i would've been raped imo

edit: I also found inquistion amazing vs mythic.. my opponent was getting destroyed by that card also i think i turn 1 ruined his turn 1 play and the tempo quickly swung into my favor

I think your deck miss some kind of draw engine, and that's is really important for a control, don't matter if you can take care of 10 cards of a jund player, if he has only one that you come in, you're dead . And that's why you are dependent of top deck in some games.

I would atleast replace sarkhan with consuming vapors, it also gets rid of persecutor when you need.

And you know that Inquisition is better vs. RDW? Taking away Geopedes, Ball Lightnings and other stuff can be really important in this matchup.

"Sarkahn is in there because he gives card advantage..."

And Vapors with Rebound doesn't? :O

The deck is really cool, I like it! Smile

Can we get an update on your list? I really like your deck, from playing it I feel the need to fit in another bit blast somehow, and consuming vapors are real good...just not sure what to take out. Honeslty i don't like sarkhan though.


I tried out duress vs inquisition, and inquisition has been better over all for me so far. I still have 4 duress in the side so can always bring them in.

Thanks alot man,


have you been liking duress over inquisition? inquisition has been working better for me... the only thing duress takes that inquisition doesn't is planewalkers really.


and have you been able to get to tripple white reliably? seems really hard.
