Quote from VexingDevilFTWwhat do people think of using the sideboard to transform your deck.
when i go to game 2 i dont care what my opponents do.
i side in Nivix Cyclops, and artful dodge.
my opponents see im using control game 1, then i throw in 4 cyclops and 2 dodges. All i need is a cyclops a dodge and a boros charm and its game if i save a negate to protect my cyclops.
i have pulled this off 3 times in game 2 on turn 4 for 10 unblockable double strike.
it usually comes in before thragtusk a opposing revelations can go off.
I like to have a more reactive sideboard with cards to beat the big decks I expect to see, but if you wanted to transform the deck out of the side, I'd try to transform it to URW Geist Midrange, not a combo deck that requires 3 cards to win, and relies on them having no removal or prevention or counter. Doesn't seem super likely or consistent and from the perspective of a big tournament, its definitely not going to get you more than a few rounds before someone stops it or you miss a piece.
