Quote from Outcryqq »I splash black, so I have access to Thoughtseize in the board, but that doesn't help you.
I assume you're playing Umezawa's Jitte, maybe Batterskull for your equipment? Those should be coming down quickly and will help you stabilize.
I see Sanctum Prelate in the SB sometimes, that's an option.
Are you running any number of Scavenging Ooze in your main/SB? They are great in that matchup.
You can also use Swords to Plowshares on your own dudes to gain yourself life, maybe target a huge Knight of the Reliquary in response to their spell. You just need to survive against burn - the longer the match goes, the more likely you are to win.
Quote from Outcryqq »Decent list. For trios, it probably depends on what your teammates are running.
Speaking generically, you have a lot of 3 drop creatures (6), that would concern me a bit. With a proper mana base, like what you have, your DRS are great and you probably won't need the Birds of Paradise, I'd maybe consider 1-2 more Qasali Pridemage main, but maybe that's my response to a meta full of artifacts and enchantments. Also, Zealous Persection has been really great lately, and I'd imagine it would just get better in trios, I'd consider adding another 1-2 in the SB. Which matchups are you wanting to bring in Gideon, Ally of Zendikar?
