Not Your Grandfather's Jund Deck, It's Zoomer Jund!

Reddit

Jund is a deck that's existed in Modern pretty much since the format's inception.

Thoughtseize
Lightning Bolt
Tarmogoyf

It's seen the banning of Deathrite Shaman and Bloodbraid Elf (which would eventually be unbanned), as well as every deck and format shift along the way. There have been times when it was the best deck in the format and times where it has been hopelessly outclassed, but it has always persisted.

Well, Jund is still here, but with Modern Horizons 2 around it's now got that zoomer flair!

Match 5 - 01:20:13


You can't play Modern without Lurrus of the Dream-Den, which means that poor Bloodbraid Elf and Liliana of the Veil have to sit on the bench. But in their place enters a trio of Modern Horizons 2 cards that have almost completely upended the format.

Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer
Dragon's Rage Channeler
Unholy Heat

While Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer may look like the best Jackal Pup of all time and Dragon's Rage Channeler may look like a prowess card, the truth is that they're both just excellent Jund cards in that they don't require anything special to be good other than just playing normal Magic. This is much in the same way as Tarmogoyf, which at first looked like a graveyard synergy card until you realized that cards just normally go to the graveyard in a game of Magic and you didn't need to do much to make it good.

Wrenn and Six
Kolaghan's Command
Inquisition of Kozilek

When you add this trio onto the best cards from the classic Jund shell, as well as the Lurrus plus Mishra's Bauble engine, you've got quite the midrange deck. With the ability to get on the board with a must answer threat as early as turn one, this is not your grandmother's Jund deck.

If you're looking to play fair in Modern, this is a great place to start!
