Quote from Raikoben »24 Creatures + 10 Spells + 23 Lands = 57 cards deck
Quote from JaishivaJai »To fix your mana base add Fabled Passage. I run 3 plus one rugged highlands. I'm also at 24 lands too. Without another untapped r/g land at our disposal, you will probably need 23 lands at least.
My list for bo1 Arena. Seems decent, perhaps not as good as in the last meta. Bonecrusher giant is really good, as is questing beast. I'm not sold on Robber of the Rich yet. I think Zhur-taa Goblin may be better.

So I considered sideboarding Massacre Girl and Order of Midnight for slightly less conditional board wipes. But my deck has to choose between W or B and doesn't support both.
Quote from SavannahLion »I've stopped playing 4C Gates for about three weeks. Actually, I stopped playing paper Standard. The meta has gotten extraordinarily gross and I don't feel like investing further in paper cards this close to rotation.
Gold fishing strategies against decks centered around Field of the Dead, Risen Reef and/or Agent of Treachery isn't yielding very good results. If a deck just employs one of these cards, I can find the strategy to beat it. If the deck uses two or three of these cards, then I can't find the strategy without involving a greater degree of luck.
Of course, there are a number of sideboard cards that can be utilized. I just haven't figured out which ones ywt.
