  1. Wow, lucky break in game 2. Good call on the alpha strike, although he could have BBE into an Akoum Battleslinger or Path and you would have been dead.

  2. Good stuff, people often say "make your own luck". The ability of jund to do this is clear, people don't give it very much credit and it's true that it's success rate has gone down in recent tournaments but in the hands of a good player, it's definitely a force.

  3. To Clarify: When I say people don't give it very much credit, I mean any more. I feel like the overall community is over eager to dismiss the deck when it's still powerful and shouldn't be discounted. Personally I'm glad there is a relevant deck out there that is available to those that can't or even won't spend the money on Jace. The complaining about Jace has been getting louder and louder. It appears there is a new bad guy in town. Thanks for the vids guys, always good.

  4. Hey Doug I was kind of surprised you kept the Putrid Leeches in v.s. Naya Allies. I thought you would want to mitigate life loss against such an aggro deck.

  5. I'm not positive but I think idea behind it was to have more guys on the field early and leech is nice because he is an early drop that can kill their early drops before or as they get larger. It keeps them from getting in the 5-6 damage in the first few turns that naya decks need. Leech on the board gives jund the time to stabilize.

    I could be wrong though

  6. I think I would have sideboarded out the Sarkans rather than Blast/Siege Gang/Broodmate. It just doesn't have the immediate impact on the board that the other cards do.

  7. I talk like LSV? That is news to me haha. Buddy I keep it in for just what was said, usually he saves me more life than he costs, preventing an ally from attacking for a couple turns until I am ready to trade with him, or chump with him (sometimes he just goes in front of a Bloodbraid for Trades, or a huge ally for chumps, all after holding back a 2/3 for multiple turns)

    As far as the Sarkhan, I should probably consider boarding him out more I agree, I just never board him out because I am completely in love with that card. Probably one of my biggest leaks in MTG haha is I am head over heels in love with The Mad 😛
