my questions would be...

1. how much is it worth? I think a good rule of thumb is if a card is worth as much or more than a pack, it's an auto-pick (not including final tables of big tournaments, obviously)

2. You say you were playing Jund, so I think it would depend on what type of stuff you have to fix your mana base. If you picked up a white/x borderpost earlier, then maybe...

3. Are your dudes 5/x for the most part? If you have a good number of them, this guy is super-stall card while you get to your powerful Jund stuff, And I hear 4 mana 5/4's are good in general as well.

Overall, I think If it isn't worth as much as a pack, it would be better to go with Terminate. Its a perfect removal spell and kills the guy you're thinking of taking. I take that into consideration in a pinch as well.

You take the Shephard because its worth money.

Having said that though if you're rare-drafting at the end or at a GP or something then Terminate is the easy pick. Shephard is nasty on the manabase, fat creatures are easy to come by (gorger wurm) and Triple Reborn is an insanely fast format dominated by 2-drops.

terminate, but not because GW is bad, and certainly not because it has no removal

as lord link says, the format is dominated by nasty 2 drops, and RBG is arguable the best colour combination in the format, and has the most nasty of all the available options (putrid leach), also GRB has the most bombs at uncommon which means you want to establish yourself in the colour asap
