Quote from Shelldell »I think our best bet against UW control is still to out-tempo them with 4x Voice, 2x Gaddock (!), and 1-2x Selfless Spirit backed up by 2-3x Renegade Rallier and 1-2x Blade Splicer, with a spell suite of a few Spell Pierce, Unified Will, Dispel, or Cancel to help push early threats through. In short it’s about having strong 2 & 3 drops rather than splashy come-back cards like Sun Titan or attempting to combo.
Quote from Shelldell »-Rallier's Revolt requirement is awkward with BBE -- you need to pre-emptively crack a fetch when you cast BBE without knowing if you'll hit Rallier, lowering the chances you'll have Revolt when you need it. I used to play Rallier in a CoCo deck (another 4-CMC card that can pseudo-cascade into Rallier) and it didn't sound like a big deal but the drop in consistency was pretty noticeable over several games and eventually put me off Rallier in CoCo decks. There's only so many times you can tolerate cascading into non-revolt or targetless Rallier.
