Amonkhet Brews, pt. 11 – Jund Toad

I’ve seen some versions of this deck out there, but here’s mine anyhow.

[card]The Gitrog Monster[/card] has a nice symmetry with the cycling lands, so why not run with that.

  1. in place of sylvan advocate, why not grim flayer? can get you draws with gitrog, and is usually a 4/4 trampler… sylvan may never become a 4/5 with vigilance if you constantly sac your lands, also the new 5 drop lily can get you a 2/2 and possibly draw cards with gitrog in play

  2. There’s a strong chance the new Liliana hadn’t been spoiled yet when I wrote this. I’m not sure. Anyhow, putting in too many five-drops might not be a good idea, although she can also return the toad to the battlefield without extra cost, maybe after a Voice or Sin Prodder trigger has put it into the graveyard.

    Grim Flayer, on the other hand, does bring its own deckbuilding constrictions. I’d like at least a few enchantments and/or artifacts to back the delirium. I’d also be worried about the chance that I’d never have enough lands in play, but I think I’d still rather have the 2/3. I would like to see where the format goes before deciding either way. Another possibility could be [card]Glint-Sleeve Siphoner[/card], for example.
