What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

****Fifth Draft****

This is your basic T2 deck, following the L/D strategy with plow unders.

For anyone that does not know the strategy yet, first turn forest and Birds of Paradise Buy.
Second turn land and Vine Trellis Buy
Third turn land, tap out and Plow Under Buy

From there, keep their land under control, play a Ravenous Baloth Buy and let the beating commence. (Recently changed from Troll Ascetic Buy)

My second win condition, just added, is with the Spellweaver Helix Buy, Hammer of Bogardan Buy, and any land destruction spell........ like Plow Under Buy

There are a lot of options i am tinkering with.....

First Ravenous Baloth Buy is in! Third draft is revolving around more defense than usual. I took out the Troll Ascetic Buy, and one Spellweaver Helix Buy, so far so good....... but still having trouble with goblin when they get a piledriver. My third turn Plow Under Buy helps for stalling the bidding, but, i still need suggestions on how to beat goblin with red/green.

I am attempting to find a good balance with the Ravenous Baloth Buy and Troll Ascetic Buy..... any suggestions about how many of each would be appreciated.

-4th draft- I added Wall of Mulch Buy. It helps a LOT against early game attackers. So far, its saved my butt twice from Goblin Piledriver Buy and stopped a Savannah Lions Buy dead in its tracks for 3 turns. Basically, it saves my butt for a turn, and then i can drop a bridge, and just sit back and watch them suffer.

-5th draft- I added Pyroclasm Buy to help with early game removal. So far, so good. I am looking into adding Flamebreak Buy but, if i do it would make me take out Troll Ascetic Buy completely. Suggestions for how i should balance it??

Wall of Mulch Buy also gives me something to do with my Vine Trellis Buy when i am about to Starstorm Buy......... special thanks to NoWingdAngel for this idea.

Also, i am thinking of adding Rorix Bladewing Buy or Silvos, Rogue Elemental Buy for more offense after i Plow Under Buy

Trinisphere Buy seems relly good to me for the deck. If i would put it in, i would have to remove something. It has helped against goblin, but, they still can get 4-5 goblins out before i drop that, and if i drop the sphere, i have to pray there is no seige gang commander , or it will be game real quick.

Finally, the sideboard needs help. Right now it is filled with 7 cards i want to playtest, and then the Flashfires Buy, Boil Buy, and Naturalize Buy.

-4th draft- I added Creeping Mold Buy because its too good to not be included anywhere in the deck, but not useful enough for mainboarding right now.

UW control is my biggest problem, since they usually counter my plow under, and then have bigger creatures like Akroma, Angel of Wrath Buy or Eternal Dragon Buy late game to kill me.

Trinisphere Buy has been decent in testing against goblin, affinity, white weenie, or any other agro deck that speed kills with cheap creatures. After numerous goblin tests with the new version..... it seems to run ok. Need a good way to deal with seige gang commander still.

Any suggestions will be appreciated, and if you want me to rate, then tell me which deck AT THE END OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS (not to be rude, but people do that first and i got yelled at once for forgetting to scroll up and rate the correct deck).
