What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

Rates returned
building this
competitive build for under 100 - cavern
Inspired by
cavern of souls sucks
can't wait for new pseudo lord needs 2 lords oona and pseudo also loves life gain faeries are terrible blockers use as evasive beats blue black is suicide use counter and mill offsets
choked esterary, watery grave, and sunken hollow better synergy dual lands, a few river of tears i love
glen tribal dual land
faerie conclave is too slow
dropped 1 mimic too weak no evasion
tragic slip filling in for fatal push
sower for tron jund affinity creatures
languish board wipe can kill hexproof
spellshutter soft counter
remand- time walk + vendillion, spreading seas, tec edg, ghost quarter harder removal
oonas blackguard discard evasion pseudo lord
inquisition is the best no life loss and most format is 3 or less
scion of oona lord with shroud
miscreant draw
scion + metallic mimic great lords backing each other
blackguard + mimic or miscreant makes deck rack like
bitterblossom makes tokens synergizes with mimic blackguard and scion makes quick beats helps spellstutter synergy
mana leak creature fix midrange control eliminates burn infect 8 rack
relic is pointless since tron mainly uses ulamog, we have imprisoned in
lost 1 to wanderer thief beat it after I spreading seas controlled mana base
annul for blue moon affinity tron hexproof
lost 2 to warriors needed lords hence the colorless

lost 1 won against elves after I spellshutter sprited it going to drop reality shift or spreading seas with new set

lost 2 to burn added mana leak and dispel
so pad life total up power otherwise go black blue but know it will eat wallet and is all offense


offense 8
defense 9
synergy 8
originality 7
power 7
resilency 9
speed 9
game 1 8
post board 8
consistency 8

used 5 different world championship decks
very amazing hands 90% effective mana
uses 2015 MAC formula of brad nelson
2 time player of the year
the oposite of red white tokens but goes in many more directions
overall great

tried to make more resilent to burn and removal since faeries are weak but very evasive so terrible defense great offense defense wins championships offense wins games so making it more defensive gets me to later be offensive so goal is lack of life loss build defense and play midrange faeries can be aggro but is mostly midrange and control since faeries are so small and weak

languish- tron, affinity, control, hexproof, taxes, and infect
annul- 8 rack, hexproof, affinity, blue moon, hate bears, soul sisters, taxes, storm, codex shedder, artifacts and tron
dispel- burn, control, most modern decks use path to exile and lightning bolt are instants same as lightning helix is instant with fatal push
sower of temptation- tron, jund, taxes, soul sisters, affinity, the non hex proof haymaker in infect
wings of vilis vei- goes against burn since burn is toughness base makes deck faster since tron and control are more prevelent changeling helps it still work, faster against 8 rack, can counter as removal boost defense, goes over bridge in rack
works awesome with counters still discards with blackguard, if played on the turn creature is summoned gets counters from mimic and blackguard, can make mimic a faerie on cip
sword of war and peace for burn, storm, hate bears, jeskai control yol, soul sisters,storm,hexpoof, taxes, white weenie'

bounce counter ok
taxes go to 4 then tax them
blue black pure offense costly

go life gain to pad life total since your creatures are very offensive
conclave ok
ghost quarter great
clique is the best blue creature ever 3/1 flash thoughtseize with flying ok to have 4 cause it dies a lot replaced with archmage which makes lock with new lord
imposter and quickling suck dead draws against removal
remand time walk I love
spreading seas and shadow of doubt blow
bounce too much delay
I love cure and imprisoned more reactive blues too proactive
oona and pseudo lord fun to pump

elixir colorless life gain reminisce

ideal tribal spread 37% creatures 38% lands 25% spells non creature
faeries CIP triggers kinda like spells
so goblins agro
illusions casual
dragons ramp control
faeries need pump life gains removal spells but can make a good MAC shell
used mill dead draw

dropped spreading sea and reality shift for colorless lord need quicker beats and leaks more proactive so much better than reality shift

ghost quarter tech edge spellshutter do enough taxes plus mana leak can tax

aggro wings of vei

mana leak

fatal push
whole sideboard

12 counters
4 removal
all but dispel is removal in sideboard
7 draw
3 steal in sideboard
3 mass removal in sideboard

-3 fatal push
-3 bitterblossom
+3 dispel
+ 3 wings

burn, storm, control
-3 miscreant
-3 mimic
-3 bitterblossom
+3 annul
+3 sower
+3 languish

new tourney killed storm easy 2-0 with latest set inqusition, mana leak, bitterblossomm, land base is awesome and cheap less bitterblossom no thoughtseize or fetch to make more resilent to burn and affinity
