Quote from VkandisSo you got hit by a god hand -- Duress plus 3 Blightnings--yeah that sucks but that far from proves the power of the deck. Not being able to keep Mind Sludge? One Blightning is not going to force you to lose Mind Sludge. Grim Discovery is your answer to Blightning--pitch a land, and a creature, get them back.
Deathmark out of the side board for Disfigure kills all the green stuff you are worried about even if they are pumped. If Oran is going to be common in Jund builds then add land destruction to the sideboard. Has added use in 5 CC match ups as well as WW which are running Emeria.
Their Oran is not being used prior to T5, if it is then they are slowing down their deck and playing right into your Mind Sludge. They really not going to drop their BBE on T4 so they can drop it T5 with an Oran boost? Better hope they made every land drop--or its headed to the bin. You have Duress as well to protect your Mind Sludge. Sadistic Sacraments Oran away.
And if they are siding out removal to bring in their control cards, then all the better they are making my creatures better. If they side out creatures to bring in control cards then all the better, I have Duress and Sadistic Sacrament post board, plus an additional Mind Sludge.
They use their Jund Charm to remove their graveyard, rather than mine so I can Grim Discovery back threats and land, better for me. Plus they are not using it to pump a creature they have on board or to use as removal if I have some knights and hexmages on the board.
Yeah Jund is not a cake walk. Lamenting about how this deck's game versus Jund is pointless--no deck right now has Jund over a barrel--otherwise everyone would be playing it. This deck has answers to what Jund wants and likes to do. And right now that is all you can ask for.
I have to try sadistic sacrament against jund... I usually side it against control and there it works wonder... especially because every time I draw it I can kick it and win the game...
the reason I'm personally lamenting about performances against jund is mostly because I find the other relevant match ups not beeing such a big problem if they are a problem at all... and therefore it is in that direction that the deck needs to be tuned
I will also try to find place for the grim discoveries since they seems to be so good against that deck
previously I played 2 and was happy with them but when I had to find place for maelstrom pulses I removed both of them... together with the 4th nighthawk and the 4th duress
