Quote from SeleneElizabeth »The deck has a big big problem against dovins en cryptic. If you don't win before turn 4 it's often 3 turns later at which point UW control has at least drawn a new counterspell. The MU is really not great.
I think the dodge yard list is a lot slower and less consistent in getting a citadel on the board. I would not see GY hate as a problem, but more: do I get to go off before I am dead, before my opponent can play interaction.
In that respect, my Dodge Yard Hate build is indeed not likely to pierce through Uxy Control's counter wall as long as the first Citadel is countered. I'm not completely convinced any other build wins much more often against Uxy Control, though--the Eggs builds combo off on Turn 3 more often, but countering Faith's Reward is quite punishing, and countering Reshape also bites.
