Quote from zemanjaskiThey want to expand reds slice of the pie. They never said they want red to be competitive.
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »At the end of the day jund and death shadow jund are way better in nearly every way in th3 format
Quote from kozzy1990 »anyone think doing a 2/2 split of terminate and fatal push okay in an open field? or just doing 3 terminate 1 fatal push?
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »I just realized something this week. I own a majority of the huge staple cards in the format. Why?
I played abzan company in Philly for the first time this week, I went undefeated with junk last week, I started off 0 and 2 this Monday and just dropped, feeling pretty crappy over a fun hobby.
You know, I'm thinking about it a lot, I'm beginning to think I'm just going to stick with the Gbx archetype. I can keep burn in case my wife ever wants to get into the hobby with me, or there'd ramp and I need to shore up a weakness
I have affinity, I have the blue staples, and I don't do anything with them. Affinity is an amazing deck but I don't click with it. I played like crap with company, I hated tron and played like crap with it
I was looking into getting eldrazi or eldrazi tron, but why? So I can meta with a deck I won't even like much, and won't get better unless I devote to playing the deck a lot when I'd rather play gbx?
Barring a splinter twin unban, blue has felt unimportant to me. I'm not discussing a ban here by any means, please don't comment or respond to that part.
What I'm getting at is when it comes down to it, I really love playing jund and the Gbx archetype, I've had the most success with it. Modern is very much more about what you enjoy playing and how long you've been playing it, not just playing to the meta. If you're a world class player, that may be a whole different argument where they can meta the format and play every deck
I'm ranting, but what I'm basically getting at is jund has been so consistent. It's been a fantastic choice, and as mtg keeps coming out in standard, it just stays just as good or better.
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »A lot of my jund deck is foiled. I regret getting the expeditions though, should have gotten the OG foils

Really? I think those expeditions should rise in value over time quite a bit. Its good investment for sure.
Quote from FlyingDelver »I generally agree that you can run 2 terminates, however, I would be very careful about it. If my meta would allow it, then sometimes Push just is a cheaper Terminate. But triggering revolt is absolutely no guarantee and if there are delve creatures or creatures with CMC higher than 4 in a given meta, I would advice against running only 2 Terminate. I absolutely think we should have at least 3 terminate like effects in our deck, and if Fatal Push effectively acts as a Terminate (due to the prevalent meta) then its fine to cut one terminate for Push (same kinda goes for cutting one terminate for Slaughter Pact).
