What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

I chose the Sidewinder Sliver Buy for their 1-drop cost plus a little extra ability. Added bonus that the Mirror Entity Buy and Avian Changeling Buy gets Flanking too.

Play small stuff. Use Amrou Scout Buy to tutor your Mirror Entity Buy and swing away. Use the Scout to tutor a Bound in Silence Buy if needed. Works with the Avian Changeling Buy too if you need to kill a flyer or two.

The obvious winner is the Mirror Entity Buy's ability.

Scout's Warning Buy allows you to flash in the Mirror Entity Buy at the end of their turn. You can use it to draw if needed, so that helps too.

Disenchant Buy is self-explanatory, especially with EVERYONE playing Oblivion Ring Buy. Which brings me to...

Oblivion Ring Buy always has its uses.

Skyhunter Skirmisher Buy is as a monster once pumped. Thanks to Netro1992 for this suggestion.

Ornithopter Buy for free extra beaters once Mirror Entity Buy is in play, plus flying for bonus evasion.

Avian Changeling Buy can be tutored by the Amrou Scout Buy for more flier action.

Threw in Preeminent Captain Buy to bring in more changelings, preferably a Mirror Entity Buy, but Avian Changeling Buy works as well.

I replaced the Dawn Charm Buys with Glorious Anthem Buy and am trying to figure out if they're worth it.

Militia's Pride Buy for cheap extra creatures.

Saltcrusted Steppe Buy simply to charge up for that final monumental beatdown.

Added Rebuff the Wicked Buy because the Mirror Entity Buy is so vulnerable and always targeted.

Added Ajani Goldmane Buy for that little extra oomph. He's definitely staying.

Added Windbrisk Heights Buy to possibly get a Mirror Entity Buy in during combat... then use it to pump! Thanks to theOmaster for this suggestion.

Added Swarmyard Buy for regenerating changelings. Thanks to JonkZ for this suggestion.

The deck sputters just a bit in the late game if they keep killing my Mirror Entity Buy, but otherwise it does quite well.

I'm considering adding a Valor Buy or two. Yes/No?
Currently playtesting with Austere Command Buy.

I tried Aven Riftwatcher Buy in place of the Avian Changeling Buy, but decided to go back to the changeling because they simply last longer. Me gaining life doesn't make an opponent lose. Also, once I added the Swarmyard Buy, it was definitely the more logical choice.
