He can play the 4 colours very easily with his fixing in jund panorama and jundlisk x 2

i think u drop the carrion trash and the thrinax for maybe court archers and the algie gharial usually is good when guys die

u only need to play 1-2 obilisks tho looking at the mana base maybe u could of gone UBRg splashing green for broodmate
Double firefined seems particularary strong

Btw i think you definitely messed up if u went 4-3
if this was a ptq this pool seems like you should breeze to top 8. In anyway Broodmate is splashable and really should be looking at your pool.
Bad players will qual for the PT as Shards sealed i based on bombs and mana a lot more than other limited formats have been in the past

hey yah, looking at ur deck i see that u cud have gone either NAYA or JUND build without splashing the 4th color
here it goes..

Deck:
1 Executioner's Capsule
1 Jund Battlemage
1 Sprouting Thrinax
1 Jungle Weaver
1 Court Archers
1 Topan Ascetic
1 Cavern Thoctar
1 Archdemon of Unx
1 Algae Gharial
1 Elvish Visionary
1 Bloodpyre Elemental
1 Soul's Fire
1 Mosstodon
1 Spearbreaker Behemoth
1 Vithian Stinger
1 Broodmate Dragon
1 Caldera Hellion
1 Goblin Deathraiders
1 Carrion Thrash
2 Obelisk of Jund
2 Bone Splinters
1 Cylian Elf

2 Crumbling Necropolis
1 Jund Panorama
5 Forest
4 Mountain
4 Swamp


basically u run a deck with 16 lands... thats fairly possible since uv got only 2 ON COLOR obelisk in obelisk of jund... no need for panoramas coz the chances of u screwing ur mana is lessend by taking away the white... next u exchange the o-rings with the bone splinters.. splinters would go well with a thrinax, carrion combo ...its not a very good trade but in order to have more bulky creatures ud hav to do so to have full access to the dragon, thrinax and carrion available plus the use of the black capsule... as a rule... if u cud do a good deck with 3 colors/shard try to do so... the 4th color may eat up on ur mana or tempo rendering ur deck less effective.

on hind sight ur deck doesnt really bode the best deck though... its above average as i may say coz u didnt have the planeswalkers and the resoundings to boot. ur pool is good but in any limited deck.. its always the player who makes it work. so more practice sealed for u
