Quote from Naximandr »How are (RB) people siding for Affinity? I'm struggling with this match-up. We have a number of options that can be relevant, but it's not clear to me how to balance the best options with maintaining our core plan of attack.

What really seems off to me is the Noose Constrictors in this deck. Are they really worth running? Is it thanks to Squee that they work?? My initial impression is that they just seem pretty sub-par but I've been wrong plenty of times before. Squee is a card I love so I'd be interested in trying it, but it does seem a little slow to get value from potentially as well. It seems your games went pretty well overall though! 80% win rate over 5 leagues is pretty good.
