What's a Sideboard?


How it Works

Constantly tweaked since 2002. You rate I rate.

How it works: Play cheap creatures with vigilance and flying. With Opposition in play, tap an Orb to untap all lands you own and keep your opponents locked down.


UPDATES:

6/28/06

Out:
2x Foil
3x Meloku the Clouded Mirror
1x Moat
1x Opposition

In:
3x Pride of the Clouds
4x Remand

Since this deck is now running a full playset of tutors, I think I can cut down on the enchantments for the more tempo-building Remand.
So the Pride does indeed make it in! Thinking about it, its like a landless Kjeldoran Outpost Buy. Meloku may be fast, but bouncing the lands is quite a gamble.
After this, I might cut out the updates for a while, I'm practically tweaking everyday now!


6/27/06

Out:
2x Counterspell
1x Island
2x Siren's Call

In:
1x Blue Elemental Blast
1x Daze
1x Enlightened Tutor
1x Pithing Needle
1x Plains

No more Counterspells... again... But I wanted to fit in more copies of cards.


6/26/06

Out:
2x Hallowed Fountain
1x Tundra
2x Counterspell

In:
2x Daze
1x Island
2x Plains

I don't know if this will work or not, but I tweaked the mana base in hopes of better coping with Wastelands.


6/24/06

Out:
2x Force Spike
4x Mana Leak
3x Plains

In:
2x Foil
4x Counterspell
3x Island

The return of the staple Counterspell! By adjusting the mana base and rearranging the other counter spells, the original now fits the curve.


6/18/06

Out:
2x Story Circle

In:
2x Ivory Mask

This change was made to better deal with those pesky scepter-chant decks out there.


6/15/06

Out:
1x Blue Elemental Blast
1x Siren's Call

In:
2x Pithing Needle

A good card to take care of land activated abilities, which many seem to exploit these days.


6/13/05

Out:
1x Grand Arbiter Augustin IV
2x Serra Angel

In:
3x Meloku the Clouded Mirror

While it pains me to remove the Serra Angels, Meloku offers three things to this deck: fuel for both Opposition and Radiant, getting more out of Moat when its on the table, and land protection which is much needed these days.

Why Pride of the Clouds Buy isn't in this deck: It doesn't make tokens as quickly Meloku, and doesn't have vigilance like Radiant. Maybe it'll find its way into this deck sometime in the future.


6/12/06

Out:
4x Counterspell
3x Bay Falcon
2x Diving Griffin
1x Island
3x Kismet
1x Plains
3x Skyshroud Falcon
1x Static Orb
3x Zephyr Falcon

In:
4x Courier Hawk
3x Enlightened Tutor
2x Force Spike
1x Grand Arbiter Augustin IV
2x Hallowed Fountain
4x Mana Leak
2x Moat
1x Tempest Drake
2x Umezawa's Jitte

I've decided to have two versions of this deck posted: one for the money rares and the other with a budget. Now to tweak this sideboard...

Out:
2x Arcane Laboratory
1x Island
4x Propaganda
2x Trinisphere
1x Story Circle

In:
4x Meddling Mage
3x Blue Elemental Blast
3x Siren's Call
