    Interesting list of Jund among 7-1 or better decks: http://www.starcitygames.com/events/coverage/4364_71_or_better_modern_decklists.html.

    No Bob, no Tracker in the md but 4 copies of Grim Flayer instead.

    I could go back to 2x Blood Moon and add 3rd Collective Brutality instead of 3rd Blood Moon but the latter seems at least as good against Jeskai control so I'm not sure about that.

    I agree with cutting Manamorphose from Gerry's list. I've never been a fan of this card in Mardu ever since I've been playing this deck. It has some use but in general I rather have actual cards like threats or removal instead.

    I'm currently on 3x Blood Moon in the main deck, mainly due to the rise of control. I'm not sure if this is correct but I like it so far. I've seen a lot of recent lists playing 0 copies of Terminate, including you FlyingDelver. I understand Terminate is worse against control but don't you feel that playing 1 copy at least is still good against Humans and many other decks? I play 1 copy and I'm afraid going down to 0 would affect my matchup against mentioned decks in a negative way too much.

    My current removal package is as follows:

    4x Lightning Bolt
    2x Fatal Push
    1x Terminate
    2x Dreadbore
    2x Collective Brutality
    3x Kolaghan's Command.

    I could add 3rd Collective Brutality instead of Terminate but while it's good against control it dosn't seem to be that good against Humans, Affinity and similar decks.

    I leave Blood moon in when I'm on Mardu and gets paired against Jund. As Tempest said it can steal a game occasionally or shut down manlands for the rest of the game which can be annoying otherwise.

    Bridge is useless against Tron. It only takes a spot you could use to play something better.

    I would say we are underdog to Burn. Before BBE I consider this a good mu for us (slightly in our favor) but BBE definitely makes this matchup worse for us. I'm also not sure that Affinity and Sotrm are that good, I think we are favored but not like 60/40, I think it's more 55:45. We are definitely underdog against Hollow One. Jeskai and Mardu are also anfavorable but at least Mardu seems very beatable for me (I've lost against Jund when Playing Mardu plenty of times). Titan Shift is much worse than 47/53. This is our worst mu in my opinion and close to unwinnable, sometimes (when I'm in mood) I just concede before the mu even starts, it's just that bad.

    I would mull that hand. No black mana should be easy mull as this hand doesn't really do anything. If there was a Faithless Looting or black mana producing land instead of one of the two lands in hand I'd keep it.

    Personally I wouldn't play more than 2 Kambals too. I'm not even sure we need 2 of them, more likely not, but definitely not 3.

    From what I saw, Blood Moon had won these games against bogles.

    If so, I'm not surprised. Blood Moon always seemed decent against Bogles in my opinion, maybe a bit too slow on the draw unless they have slower hand but other than that it seems good.

    I think that Blood Moon is well positioned right now in general.

    It's nice to see Jund making some results again.

    Also there was Jund in top 8 of the last Modern challenge and Jund in top 8 (lost in the finals) at MKM Series Hamburg this weekend.

    I found Bogles to be pretty tough matchup for us. Sure you can win if you draw any of EE or Wear but otherwise it will be very hard to win. At least these are my experiences against Bogles. Maybe I was unlucky but regardless of that I'm definitely not happy to face it.

    Bogles. I haven't watched it (I will when it will be available on Scg or Youtube) but I've read that he beat Bogles in the semi-finals using Bridge and tokens combination.

    I think that Mardu Pyromancer is the best fair deck in Modern right now that isn't Humans. Regarding interactive, non-linear aggressive decks Mardu is the best. Humans is different kind of fair deck but as long as you want to play grindy midrange Jund sytle deck then Mardu is the way to go although looking at fair deck Jeskai control seems in a decent spot as well.

    #SCGKY Modern Top 8: 2 Jund, 2 Jeskai, Mardu Pyro, Bogles, Storm, Humans

    That's a fairly beautiful Top8. If only we saw this at any GP; especially with Vegas just around the corner.

    It looks great indeed.
