[Video] School of Jund, #1

FirstFrame

Jund takes a lot more skill than people think to pilot and Doug has decided to do a few more videos to display that fact. Just because you have 4 mana does not mean you should be auto-playing a Bloodbraid Elf. Doug P hopes followers of Mana Deprived can appreciate this series.

[Video] NLB with KYT – Random Thoughts

FirstFrame

Jon Medina requested some nuggets of knowledge from me as he plans to sleeve up NLB for a PTQ tomorrow.  I top 8ed with Next Level Bant a few weeks ago and today, I finished 5-2 at a PTQ.  I am nowhere near Kibler in terms of player strength, but hopefully, I can be of some help to those looking forward to playing NLB in the near future.  This video will be really messy in structure because I only had a small window of time to complete it.  I hope you all enjoy what I could muster up.
