The best cascade deck I've seen is this one. The guy wins a lot of minis with it. His name on IRC is The_Ocean

Ouch. I like that list you posted the link to. I can just imagine "Enigma Ultimatum":

Enigma Sphinx into
Enlisted Wurm into
Bituminous Blast into
Bloodbraid Elf into

Thanks, do I win yet? Oh, and Sphinx into Identity Crisis sounds sick too.

that list the_ocean with 2 ajani vengeants main instead of the sphinx and a deny reality is solid. Still not a great deck but it probably has a positive matchup with jund

his manabase is horrible tho...why go with fetchlands when you are not gonna do anything until turn 3/4 anyways...more trilands seems better and i think captured sunlight + deny arent those great of cards...why not play something more potent to the actual game state...maybe -4 sunlight -4 deny +2 ajani + 4 maelstrom pulse +2 doj ?? that would look a little closer to my 5c cascade minus a few spells Wink

and as for your dfecklist kinda hard on where to start...once again i dont like captured...the factr it says cascade is whatever cause 4 life is only relevent vs what boros? the jund matchup isnt to difficult due to the fact you have more CA...also the inferno trap and arrow volley seem horrible too...maybe try Terminate / PtE / Pulse. and 6 critters is kind of not a fan of war monks but they seem they would fit nicely here
maybe -4 mind rot -4 inferno trap -2 arrow volley -4 captured +3 pulse +3 PtE +4 War Monk +2 enlisted wurm + 2 doj

id give that a a more controlish aspect...and try enigma sphinx he can be pretty stupid if he doesnt get PtE'd

1 Jungle Shrine
1 Mountain
2 Plains
4 Rupture Spire
4 Savage Lands

Mike Flores' list is good vs. control/random slow decks but horrible vs any kind of creature deck. Not even having DoJ's in sb doesn't make sense, you will want to have atleast 2 main and 2 in sb. Ajani is also good main. Also, it's a good idea to play a few fetchlands. Sometimes games drag on and it's annoying to know that all your expensive spells have been pushed to the bottom, so being able to shuffle your library is nice.
