Jund Shard Devour Deck

After drafting a Black/Red/Green deck (called the Jund Shard in the Shards of Alara block) in the tournament last week, I was intrigued by the potential of some of the cards and mechanics, especially the combination of very hungry creatures (Predator Dragon) with creatures that like to be eaten (Sprouting Thrinax).

After studying a number of Devour deck ideas online I feel pretty good about this one:

Creatures (28)
4 Safehold Elite
4 Kitchen Finks
4 Sprouting Thrinax
4 Sarkham Vol
4 Nantuko Husk
4 Caldera Hellion
2 Mycoloth
2 Marsh Flitter

Spells (8)
4 Goblin Assault
2 Rite of Consumption
2 Torrent of Souls

Lands (24)

This is a version of Steve Gargolinski's Supper's Ready deck, edited slightly for personal taste and to save a little money. I like the directions Steve goes with this deck and the many synergies present here compared with the rest of the devour type decks out there. I looked through all the new Conflux cards to see if anything would update this design, but nothing has jumped out at me so far.

Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow to post about some of the interactions between the cards in this deck.
