Sideboard (15 cards)

Sorceries (1)

Instants (5)

Enchantments (1)

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

Well, this is my take on one of the grindiest decks of the format, so grindy in fact that it often runs 0 creatures and wins with tome or justice.

I have given it my own spin of course, not that there is ever going to be one best way to build a toolbox deck.

First of all, 0 creatures in the maindeck. This is both an amazing strategic move and imo also the best way to build the deck. The benefit is that your opponent will have a ton of dead cards in the first game, and in the second you'll just board in 3 anglers and yell GOTCHA!

The removal is a reflection of my meta, Hexproof is abundant, so is monarchy, so is delver. I also like to play Think Twice instead of Accumulated Knowledge when in a tournament, due to everyone knowing I will play something that will make at least 2 SB spots worth dedicating to GY hate.

How to Play

You just grind them out! Unless they are playing TE, in that case you hope you'll have a counterspell for every Tortured Existence and well, you might not, and you'll die...

In general though, you just play not to lose until you get a tome or a double-talisman-evincar going. From this point, you are winning just about all the time as you have all the asnwers all the time thanks to Mystical Teachings
