What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

I mainly put it under the Tournament quality because that is what I want it to become (not pro tour worthy, just local modern play) Basically my deck is controlling their board with my destruction and trying to take them out while their board is empty. Deathrite Shaman Buy is awesome for a bit of ramp and some damage by exiling my destruction cards. Woodlurker Mimic Buy works really well in combination with any of my destruction as well as Dreg Mangler Buy. Vampire Nighthawk Buy are there for the flying deathtouch. Glissa, the Traitor Buy is awesome for killing certain creatures because of first strike deathtouch. Creakwood Liege Buy works really well because most of my cards are both green and black so they get +2/+2 and his worms are a great sac engine for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Buy. Sideboard is in complete (suggestions would be awesome) and right now is to deal with blue control, indestructible and combo decks. I have a copy of my other spells in case an opponents creatures are more vulnerable to one of them.
