Quote from ekienhol »Starting to get ready for the RPTQ next month... I'm seeing a lot more graveyard decks around my area, thinking about hedging a bit for those strategies for the event. I'm cutting Sentinel for Striking in the main, should help with both dredge and humans. Worried about cutting too much for other matchups by making changes, Tron and Control are still out there in copious amounts, tron not so much around here...
I think the best strategy against graveyard aggro (aka Dredge) is to fight them on the battlefield.
I found that overfocus on graveyard hate usually tends to delay us too much for the benefits. Also, they tend to recover quickly.
Using lords and striking to check their creatures, and Diffusion to keep our party from Conflagrate, could be of more effect, as we progress in our primary beatwdown plan.
Combo graveyard decks (Storm and friends) are usually so bad matchups, that I dropped them almost entirely.
Due to this reasons, I usually have no graveyard hate in side.
So, if I were you, I will not dedicate too much side to dredge, and focus more on even matchups (BGx Midrange, control, and the rest of fair decks).
(If in doubt, a little testing in MODO or Cockatrice will always be of help)
