What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

It's a basic Mill deck, with Laquatus and millstones. It also uses the Traumatize/Haunting Echoes combo.
But it's also got a twist: Meekstones to keep down their big creatures, and Engineered Plagues to get rid of their smaller ones while i slowly mill down their deck. It's got boosting creatures that are under 3 power, but can be boosted, like the Nantuko Shade's. I then have a combo with the Guiltfeeder/Shade's Form to make then lose lots of life after i've milled/traumatized them, and the Scalpelexis th help with the milling. The cephalid constable helps to keep hasty enchantments and/or lands at bay, as do the counterspells, while i either mill them to death or kill them with my boosted creatures. If their deck isn't creature based, then my sideboarded Delusions of Mediocrity keeps my life up while the extra counters get rid of life gain/instant damage, and the rancid earths help against high mana or rage decks.

Any suggestions are appriciated, but PLEASE, NO non-type2 or IPA cards!!
