  1. Jimmy is playing Simon Goertzen’s Pro Tour decklist, verbatim. That’s two tournaments that list has won in a few weeks!

  2. For the record, my deck list wasn’t all that close to the stock Naya list that got posted to the website, which on the one hand is pretty nice considering people will never know what was really in my deck…

    1. Your list has been updated. Although the sideboard was correct, the few tweaks to the mainboard were corrected. 4 cards off isn’t exactly off by very much though. 😉

  3. People keep asking what I played, then I tell them, then I look at what’s posted and they don’t line up, so then people ask me again… o the cycle. Thank you for breaking it

  4. Garrett Johnson

    8 Naya, 9 Jund, 4 UW. Interesting. Well my sideboard did well in this 5K because I was expecting alot of decks with Red and Black. Not sure what I would take out but I think I’d want to make room for Dauntless Escort seeing as that would have saved me so many times in my match against Josh.. Anyone have any idea’s looking at my list what they’d take out to put in the Dauntless Escorts? Also consider my meta is heavy with Jund

  6. thanks for the coverage CF! anyone have any idea what is the sb plan of jund vs the u/w deck?

    looking at the featured video, it appears that the jund mage does something like this:

    take out broodmates, bolts, rampant growth, add the needle, pulse, then stags and deathmarks

    the only thing i am missing though is to cut 3x broodmate, 4 bolt, and 3 rampant is -9, and we are adding in 4 stag, 4 deathmark, a pulse and a needle, so we add back 10

    or i could be way off base anyway lol!

    anyone know?

  7. Josh Utter-Leyton’s list is 61 cards? Matt Nass’ list is 62? Could that be double-checked or something?

  8. lol no vamps has a hard time with jund and theres not alot of good matchups like red and u/w around to make it worth it
