Quote from chaos021 »So I've been lurking a little bit in these forums, and I haven't really seen a whole lot of talk about the Death and Taxes matchup. I find it to be horrible. Is there a particular way I need to line up my removal? Should I play aggressively? I just need to be pointed in the right direction and would greatly appreciate any help.
Quote from Scry_me_a_river »Hey!
How did it turn out in Prague for those of you who piloted Jund?
I went to Prag myself and finished 9:3:3 making my first Pro Point:-D
Quote from Scry_me_a_river »I streamlined my list playing the full playset of Groves and Fire and cutting down on the bolts. I have never missed them - not even against all the delver/deathrite decks. Decay and Punishing Fire are usually enough to handle the relevant threats and these cards are much more versatile (in case of Decay)/grindy (in case of Punishing Fire). Pulse is good against Planeswalkers, Eldrazi, Token Strategies, Angler and Tombstalkers, Batterskulls and Random Stuff. Kolaghan's Command is also a very flexible choice that generates massive card advantage.
Quote from Scry_me_a_river »Regarding the SB I jotted down some remarks. The most impressive cards werde Life from the Loam and Slaughter Games. The latter one caught my Miracles opponents two times off guard.
Quote from hancoxdj »Hi guys, been keeping an eye on this thread a little but wanted to hear anyone's opinion on the Eldrazi match up.
I'm certainly not the most experienced Legacy player, but on the surface it strikes me as a really tough match up.
Have people found this to be the case? And also, what cards are players side-boarding in preparation for the match up? I've been considering Blood Moon, it can mess us up a tad but has to be worth it for the effect it has on Eldrazi (and Lands)?
Has anyone made any subtle changes to the main deck also? Trimming a bolt or two for example?
Quote from CorwinOfAmber »Quote from dwchang »Wanted the Goblin Warchief promo so I played in another Legacy FNM tonight and went 4-0 again. I'm on a roll with this deck (won FNM three times in a row and went undefeated each time). Beat OmniTell (2-1), Miracles (2-0), Grixis Delver (2-0), and Burn (2-1).
could you post your decklist please?

Quote from CorwinOfAmber »thanks for your reply dwchang. well, another way to beat burn is a T1 IoK into T2 hymn and Goyf race them. but both scenarios requires a perfect opening hand... (and fetching basics and keeping Wasteland untapped and stuff). Vortex is a bad card, but we can Decay it. i was thinkig about Kitchen Finks and Feed the Clan (Goyf can easily grow with some dead Eidolons or Vortexes), but these cards ain't that strong in Legacy as they're in Modern... they don't see any legacy play, right?
Quote from CorwinOfAmber »hey guys, what's your plan against Burn? there's always a space for one Jitte, but will it be enough?
Quote from pzbw7z »I just can't stand the artwork on Chains of Mephistopheles so I am absolutely not going to have it in my side-board. What would those of you who do include it put in it's place if you had to replace it?
Quote from HateKnuckle »I'm wondering about our Matchup against lands. In my are a there are two lands players and one will destroy me but the other one just loses to me. Do we just hope to remove their Loams? How do we fight such a resilient strategy?
Quote from pzbw7z »I'm interested in adding the bits to be able to play Jund in Legacy. Is the primer up-to-date? I don't fancy reading all 50+ pages to see what's up.
Quote from Jori, The Splashy Puddle »Good Sideboard cards against Stoneblade and other controle/midrangy decks?
Red blast, choke, pyroblast..what else?
Quote from s3raphix »I think Jund is genuinely underplayed relative to its strength. People shy away from it because it doesn't have Brainstorm and Force of Will, but its one of the most consistent and powerful non-Brainstorm decks out there. Almost every time I'm deciding on what to play at a big tournament I roll with Jund simply because it matches up well against a lot of popular decks.
Delver decks? Check.
Death & Taxes? Check.
I could see this changing depending on how popular Eldrazi gets and to what degree the meta warps around it. While discard + Tarmogoyf has been a great recipe for stomping stompy decks, I'm a bit concerned about the inadequacy of Decay and Fire against them. I haven't played this matchup, so I can't say for certain yet.
