The Post in Question...

I have two points to make about this deck list. Although the strategy is fine, the tuning of the deck is not. You may find yourself wanting your deck to be different colors when considering your sideboard options even. I looked at your SB and I noticed for Plains. I strongly feel that if your deck can not pack an appropriate sideboard plan with the mana base your maindeck already has than you are taking away valuable options in your sideboard for land slots. You use four plains in your side. That could be four more "Spells" instead with a sideboard tuned to your own mana base before games one and two where your plains come in. You may say that this deck will not suffer from adding plains from the sideboard in games, but that isn't the point. A flaw in magic deck design in my 13 years of playing the game is when I see a player wasting good slots for lands in their sideboard. This shouldn't be an issue. I strongly feel the deck should be tune appropriately to fit the mana you need pre board, otherwise your color options may be out of sync with the decklist itself.

Another thing I see that may need fixing (by may I mean most definitely) is that you run 61 cards. No well tuned deck should ever be running more than 60. This has been a rule of competitive Magic since the beginning and I am sure if you try to adjust your deck accordingly you will see the results instantly.
