What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

as always, you rate, i rate.

well you either diabolic intent / tutor a tinker for the colossus, or combo the altar and myr retriever to kill them with disciple of the vault.

the tinker colossus is pretty generic, but with the right opening hand:

{1} lay down Disciple of the Vault Buy
{2} lay down Myr Retriever Buy
{3} lay down Ashnod's Altar Buy
sac retriever to the altar, get two mana. disciple burns your opponent for one. lay down a second retriever with the two mana from the altar. repeat steps 4 and 5. every time you sac the retriever it will retrieve the other one for a perpetual combo, the disciple burning for one each time. you can achieve this on turn two with a Dark Ritual Buy.

the Phyrexian Walker Buy/Ornithopter Buy plus Unholy Strength Buy give you a {B} drop 2/4 creature / 2/3 flyer respectively.

i have also been able to achieve a turn 1 colossus with Lotus Petal Buy,Ancient Tomb Buy,Ornithopter Buyor Phyrexian Walker Buy, and Tinker Buy off the draw.

update 6/22/08. finally added the side board. i have been changing it up but i'm pretty sure i got it the way i want it now. if i come up against control i simply swap the sb in and take out the retriever/disciple combo along with a few 1 of 4's, swap 3 swamps for 3 islands to adjust the mana base, and just control the control. simply put, the colossus will always prevail.

the only changes i can think to make now are to add Mox Jet Buy, Mox Sapphire Buy, and a Black Lotus Buy. but i won't until i actually own the cards....
