Quote from Mr. Cthulhu »How many stranglers are people on? I'm currently at 3 but have not yet finalized my list post-OGW yet. I could easily see myself dropping them down to 2.
Also, I could use some Sideboarding advice. Unfortunately my local meta makes for a very poor environment for Eldrazi, with Tron, Infect, Boggles, Merfolk, and Affinity all pretty popular. I mean just my last Wednesday modern event saw a turnout of 1 Living End, 1 Burn, and 2 each of Boggles, Merfolk, Infect, and Tron... It's painful at times My current SB is this:

3 Timely Reinforcements2 Celestial Purge2 Surgical Extraction2 Leyline of Sanctity2 Stony Silence1 Ghost Quarter1 Ruin Processor2 Spellskite
With a meta like the one I talked about above, how would you all recommend I adjust my SB to improve my matchups with so many fast decks running around?
Quote from Deurge »How is our Merfolk matchup? I played some games and couldn't win any.
Quote from CapBubble »This is the list Ill be testing online on release. Don't know how much I care for smasher, but Ill test it out. http://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/363459#paper
If I don't like Smasher, Ill go up to 3 Strangler and another warping wail.
Quote from Complex Pants »This is what I am thinking right now. Haven't tested it, but seems good. The board is very much in flux, but I think 3-4 stony will be correct after the twin ban. There will be a lot of affinity and RG tron.
