The control magic cards are utterly cluch for getting big hitting commanders like Teysa or terrifying enablers like Animar under control.
So i took out the Dictate of Karametra and put in Kiora, the Crashing Wave instead. This jumped the price a little but it is still under $60. I just thought the extra card draw/land per turn was better. I also took out the Retraction Helix for Cyclonic Rift . This made it not theros exclusive but overall a much better deck. Lastly, took out Solidarity of Heroes because it only helped the Mistcutter Hydra and i felt it was wasted. Instead i put in Spell Blast to give me a little more control.
Still looking for a sideboard, which will probably end up being more counters for specific things. not sure yet. advice appreciated.
After a bit of testing, looking, and meta-ing, I've put together a rough draft of sideboard! Here's the rundown:
AEtherling seems like one of the most versatile creatures in standard right now, evades pretty much everything you can cast at it.
Back to Nature will be for BG, UW, and other enchantment heavy/aura based decks. Pretty self explanatory.
Essence Scatter for cheaper counters when facing creature heavy decks, such as U and G devo.
