Quote from Melves72 »I agree with strinq. 3/4 in the sideboard is a must. Targets also lands, no mana restriction, useful against almost all decks from affinity to tron.
For sure we will see in the meta an increment of GBx midrange decks.
Just to put this in my perspective. I dont think 4 is the way to go. There are two types of considerations when building a SB: Do I want cards to support my game plan (i.e. "combo off" with elves) or do I want to disrupt my opponent?
IMO one intersection of these two considerations is to destroy troublesome permanents like Ensnaring Bridge. In this regard, Rec Sage does the same Job but better and often uncounterable. I mean, what do you want to invest your two mana and 4 cards in that are taking room in your otherwise very consistent and straight deck? Hit a Teferi? Hit an Ugin? I think thats not the route to go, cuz when your opp lands one of those it means lights out most of the times.
Hence, I would rather invest the SB slots for other cards that help me to follow my gameplan. I am not saying, however, that Trophy should not be played (2-of sounds good to me). It's a very strong card.
