What's a Sideboard?

How it Works



I took a monowhite version of parfait to a tourney and went 4-2 with it, losing to a full powered slavery and a full powered hulk.

I was happy with the result, but the deck really lacked some countermagic to conquer control decks. Adding blue was the consequence and until now I like it the way it is.

Oh no, I decided to add Mr Darksteel Colossus Buy. Now this deck is trivial... Sad

Added 5 P9 proxies for a tourney just to have the decklist ready when I need it

Added 2 Intuition Buy and Mana Crypt Buy, kicked 1 Humility Buy and 1 Goblin Charbelcher Buy since Intuition Buy for Goblin Charbelcher Buy/Goblin Charbelcher Buy/Argivian Find Buy does the job and gives more flexibility.
Thinking about dropping 1 Swords to Plowshares Buy

The idea behind this build is to defend yourself until you win. Winning however is a combination of Land Tax Buy and Goblin Charbelcher Buy with the help of old fella Zuran Orb Buy. It is, at any rate, best to search for those 3 lands if you can. The less lands you have, the better are your draws and the faster you draw into
Goblin Charbelcher Buy. Once you got the Belcher, reveal your entire library to deal a massiv amount of damage. Play it, even if you think someone is holding a counter. If you're lucky, they'll force it, losing 2 cards. You still have some more, you can Tinker Buy them out, you can tutor them out, you can Argivian Find Buy them back...

I changed the sideboard a bit lately, because I'm going to a tourny with proxies allowed, so I expect alot of power.
Stifle Buy was a no-brainer, coz storm-driven combo decks have risen lately. Those decks don't have much except for their combostuff, so once you Stifle Buyd their Tendrils of Agony Buy, Mind's Desire Buy or Brain Freeze Buy, the game is mostly won.
To defend against red aggro I added Chill Buy. One Chill Buy on the board gets Food Chain Buy goblins into big trouble since powering out their whole library is a bit hard if everything costs 2 more ^_^
Humility Buy is so great I actually put it into the mainboard with an additional waiting in the sideboard. Most decks don't consider enchantments a threat for their strategies, so I don't expect too much removal. But look at their faces when Humility Buy hits and their Goblin Welder Buy just got a 1/1 Darksteel Colossus Buy back...


I really enjoyed playing the deck at our vintage tourney and it drew a lot attention onto it ("Oh, your that guy playing this strange reveal thing deck").

I failed at another vintage tourney because I made soo many playing errors. I just was too tired. Still I'm liking it for an unpowered deck.
