Sample list...

4 x Putrid Leech
4 x Sprouting Thrinax
4 x Bloodbraid Elf
2 x Siege-Gang Commander
3 x Broodmate Dragon

4 x Blightning
3 x Maelstrom Pulse

4 x Lightning Bolt
3 x Terminate
4 x Bituminous Blast

4 x Savage Lands
4 x Dragonskull Summit
3 x Rootbound Crag
4 x Verdant Catacombs
1 x Oran-Rief, the Vastwood
3 x Forest
3 x Swamp
3 x Mountain

1 x Maelstrom Pulse
2 x Mind Rot
2 x Malakir Bloodwitch
3 x Jund Charm
3 x Great Sable Stag
4 x Goblin Ruinblaster

Strong mid-range game, great card advantage, still the most played deck at tourneys. Any deck that wants to push threw to Tier 1 must be prepared to combat Jund. The decklists vary with some lists running Master of the Wild Hunt or Garruk Wildspeaker and others with ramp in the form of Rampant Growth and sometimes Lotus Cobra. With LSV's R/W/U list coming in 1st and 5th at the Star City Games 5k L.A. Junds numbers are finally starting to decrease, it's still the most played deck in the format but with worldwake looming in the horizon this looks to change soon.

So what does Worldwake offer Jund?

The most obvious choice IMO would be the duel man-lands. Specifically Raging Ravine.....and possibly Lavaclaw Reaches.
But definitely Raging Ravine.

Nothing in Red or Black jumped out at me, but Green had a few worth noting.

Explore could replace Rampant Growth in the 'ramp' version. It doesn't necessarily accelerate you: if you don't have a land in hand than it's a Cantrip for 2 mana, but you're not always paying for it because of Cascade:) But if you do have a land in your hand when Explore is casted than it acts as a better Rampant Growth because the land can be non-basic and enters untapped PLUS the card draw.

The other card could possibly be Canopy Cover. It gives your ground pounders (anything not Broodmate Dragon) evasion and untargability. It's low cost is good for cascade. People are already testing their cmc 2 slot with Rampant Growths and some versions have dropped Putrid Leech, and this card can easily fit in without a serious mana adjustment or loss of tempo to the original deck.

Just some food for thought.
