Hopefully we will get recruiter of the guard or the like that you can search your entire library and not just a few deep like the bugler.
Quote from Tempest753 »Hey yriel, long time no see
Is the matchup basically unwinnable without surgical? I ask because I’ve been trying to make do with spellbombs, damping sphere, and Cage (extraction’s price tag is ridiculous nowadays), but I can’t tell if the artifacts are subpar or I’ve simply been getting unlucky.
I took a few months hiatus from magic so my knowledge of the Phoenix matchup is basically null.
Quote from MajorRiot »Jund is probably the worst deck in Modern that is a playable deck, GB isn't too far behind it. I would not recommend playing this deck or any mid-range deck if you are looking for wins or competitive games. I would also not recommend Jund or GB if you suffer from depression or have suicidal thoughts.
Just look at this thread. I scrolled back a few a pages, there is nobody on here celebrating anything. Entire weeks go by without a single post. And when there is a post, it is someone suggesting something new for the deck, that is only immediately shot down, with good reason usually. I've been playing this deck for a long time now, hoping that something would make midrange playable but we are beyond that now. Nobody wants fair games, they want infinite loop or instant kill. Playing anything else, you are just wasting your time. Move on to some other deck, that is easier to play, like Burn or Tron.
Close this thread. It's over.

I have a new project running, which is to convert the primers to my new webpage: https://www.greatnessatanycost.com/
There you can find the Amulet Titan SB Guide!

Quote from FlyingDelver »I think Ishkanah is a great way to stabilize the board, if you get that far to speak. At 5 mana she can of course also rot in the hand.
But I get the idea behind her. One reason for it is that for example Finks, is imo not a great card anymore in Jund. A lot of threats in modern are flying atm, especially since phoenix is a deck. Finks doesn't block at all here. And this observation has led me to the desire of a great flying stabilizing creature, which is actually able to block. unfortunatlely I haven't found any creature that is good enough. Ishkanah is a similar strategy I think. She can block flying threats and provide needed time threough chump blocking. Recurring her also seems valuable.
I personally am a bit higher on PKN though, which has similar purposes. But I like the cheaper cost and the possibility of removing a threat or 2 in addition.

I think I give it a spin just out of fun. Should be that at least.
