What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

The idea is to have your Guile Buy in play along with a Chalice of the Void Buy set at {2} then you play your Brain Freeze Buy. The original copy gets countered but the storm count stays on the stack, Guile Buy let's you play the Brain Freeze Buy again you repeat this until opponent doesn't have any cards left. Took some cards out here's the new version.
version 2 update.

-1 Eladamri's Call Buy
-1 Wrath of God Buy too sideboard
-4 Sakura-Tribe Elder Buy

+4 Gifts Ungiven Buy
+2 Eternal Witness Buy
+1 Nostalgic Dreams Buy
+1 Restock Buy in SB replacing Beacon of Immortality Buy

Version 3.0

I playtested this and found that i really like 1 copy of Living Wish Buy in main that can be tutored for with gifts, also added 1 hierarch to sb the wish is good against affinity, because i can fetch my Kataki right away. i've also added a Academy Ruins Buy to SB to stop U/W tron decks

-1 Orim's Chant Buy from sb
-1 Isochron Scepter Buy from sb
-1 Loxodon Hierarch Buy to sb
+1 Living Wish Buy
+1 Academy Ruins Buy to sb

version 3.0 results on mtgo

affinity 6-0
u/w urzatron 5-1
goblins 2-1
ichorid 4-0
dredge 1-0

I've added a single Tormod's Crypt Buy and a Primal Command Buy to help with graveyard hate.

-1 Orim's Chant Buy
-1 Isochron Scepter Buy

+1 Primal Command Buy
+1 Tormod's Crypt Buy

I'm replacing the 3 Wrath of God Buy with 2 Orim's Chant Buy and 1 Isochron Scepter Buy to see how the deck fairs with the gifts combo. on another note the scepter is good with Moment's Peace Buy and on occasion if guild fails a Brain Freeze Buy

-3 Wrath of God Buy to sideboard

+1 Isochron Scepter Buy
+2 Orim's Chant Buy To main

Taking some cards out of SB in place for maybe 1 Engineered Explosives Buy gonna see how it works for earlie game removal.

-1 Aura Mutation Buy from SB
+1 Engineered Explosives Buy to SB

Made alot of changes to deck I took my 4 Chrome Mox Buy out in place for 4 Lotus Bloom Buy just didn't like the mox in this case with my Guile Buy's heavy mana the blooms rule. also added another living wish to main, my opponents always choose to have guile put into grave on a gifts ungiven so I put 1 guile in sb to be tutored for with Living wish. added another sensei's divining top to main and got rid of my dovescape, my orim's chant's and my isochron scepters.
