Hello everyone. It has been awhile since my last post. I've been away since last November I think, for some family matters, and work of course. Didn't buy any cards for like 6 months until recently I got my playset of  Fatal Push (and those are the only cards I bought from Aether Revolt). While I'm away from playing paper Magic, I did pick up Magic Online in Janurary. So today, I'm going to try out something new: to record some videos of my games. And the deck I'm playing today, is the good old Jund.

Jund
Mainboard:
Dark Confidant
Tarmogoyf
Scavenging Ooze
Huntmaster of the Fells
Kitchen Finks
Liliana of the Veil
Kolaghans Command
Terminate
Fatal Push
Lightning Bolt
Abrupt Decay
Inquisition of Kozilek
Thoughtseize
Blackcleave Cliffs
Raging Ravine
Verdant Catacombs
Bloodstained Mire
Wooded Foothills
Overgrown Tomb
Blood Crypt
Stomping Ground
Ghost Quarter
Swamp
Forest

Sideboard:
Leyline of the Void
Thoughtseize
Collective Brutality
Ancient Grudge
Fulminator Mage
Thrun, the Last Troll
Golgari Charm
Damnation
Painful Truths


A brief decktech here. Besides the auto-included  Tarmogoyfs and  Dark Confidants, we have 2 Oozes for a little bit of graveyard hate and life gain. And then 2 of each  Kitchen Finks and  Huntmaster of the Fells for aggro matchups and grindy midrange matchups.

 Liliana of the Veil, no doubt one of the best planeswalker in Magic history. She can do almost everything a Jund deck wants:
1. Deals with opponent's creatures
2. Attack opponent's hand
3. Destroys opponent's board when she ultimates

As for spells, 6 discards is pretty standard, together with the removals package, aim to disrupt opponent's hand and kill everything that the opponent plays. The  Fatal Pushes, the best card out of Aether Revolt is perfect upgrade for black decks in Modern. After some testing, it feels like I want the 4th  Fatal Push more than the 4th  Lightning Bolt in the deck. Will find out more as I test out this deck.


Sideboard wise, I have 1 extra  Thoughtseize and 2  Collective Brutality for the control and combo matchups. Brutality, is also great against burn and aggro decks. 3  Leyline of the Void, I think the hardest to deal with among all the graveyard hates. These leylines are for 2 popular decks in the meeta - Dredge and Gifts Storm.  Ancient Grudge for Affinity and Lantern Control or sometimes I can even board them in against Infect and decks that plays  Ather Vial if I happened to have more cards to board out.  Fulminator Mages, obviously for Tron and Valakut type decks while I sometimes board them in against decks that plays 3 or more colors, on the play, to mana-screw them. Thrun and  Painful Truths, are the best cards in the midrange or control mirror.  Damnation, great against Zoo, Bant Eldrazi and Company decks. And last but not least,  Golgari Charm for some utility.


Alright, lets get to some videos. (For some unknown reason I can't embed the videos in this article, so I'm just going to paste the links here)

Match 1 - Abzan Elves

(The music in this video is probably too loud, or I'm talking to far away from the mic, so please enjoy the music while watching)


Match 2 - Green White


Match 3 - Gifts Storm


Match 4 - Eldrazi Taxes


Match 5 - G/U Infect


Thanks for reading and watching, sorry for the lousy spoken English. Do let me know if there's anything that I can do to improve my videos so that I can make better ones next time. Thanks again and see you all next time!
