What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

Chevy... like a ROCK. Get it?
Powerful Rock with an induction of White.

The main focus is to get rid of any threat your opponent plays, short of burn, by using a strategic deck filled with cards to counter all threats. Creatures like Monk Realist Buy, Nekrataal Buy, and Uktabi Orangutan Buy can clean up opponent's creatures. Pernicious Deed Buy hoses creature and combo decks, and Spiritmonger Buy is there for the kill.

To access these cards are an assortment of tutors and wishes. In fact, the entire sideboard is a list of tactically useful cards that can be recalled through Living Wish Buy and Death Wish Buy.

-2 Duress Buy
-1 City of Brass Buy (sideboard)

+2 Cabal Therapy Buy
+1 Gaea's Herald Buy (sideboard)

I found out the hard way how deadly Cabal Therapy Buy was after losing with one of my decks 0-2 in a tournament because of it. In tournament play, Cabal Therapy Buy is one of the most useful cards there is. Also, odds are that against blue control decks I won't go the normal route. Instead I'll be dropping fatties everywhere. The Gaea's Herald Buy will be the main assist card.

Thanks to Eclectic Magi for the Gaea's Herald Buy.

PLEASE SUGGEST CARDS TO PUT IN AND TAKE OUT. If you do, I will rate the deck of your choice. Thanks.
