Grubbernaut, Fade Away is best handled by the Quirion Ranger + Priest of Titania as they can only play it starting on turn 3. if you are playing against blue you have to be conservative anyway, so that matchup doesn't really improve post board.
cohandel09, glad to help out!

How do you deal with Fade Away post-board? Or it just one of those hoser cards you have to watch out for?

Hey Podkomorka, I appreciate the feedback, but just to be clear my goal was never to build a control deck. Goals like that tend to converge on mainstream decks which I try desperately to avoid. My goal here was to build the best deck I could based on Fade Away. And I have to disagree with you about Fade Away. Most pauper decks play low on land and heavy on creatures. Which make them particularly vulnerable to Fade Away. In most exchanges it's a 3-1 card advantage and sometimes (with elves, goblins, stompy, etc) much, much bigger. Alternatively, those that play low on creatures tend to be particularly vulnerable to COPs. So this deck tends to have an answer for everything. In general it only struggles because it has one or two answers and not four or eight answers. So a couple key counterspells or removal spells can cause real problems. But overall it's a good deck nobody sees coming. Having Runes of Protection and other more typically sideboard bound cards in the main deck really wreck havoc in the first game. And frankly, how do you define control? I define control as a defensively oriented deck designed to limit your opponents options and disrupt their ability to pursue their preferred method of attack in a systematic way. This deck checks all of those marks for me.

I'm going to be a little blunt. I think it's cool to really like something and try to make it work. After testing the deck and looking over it I can tell you that your deck is not much of a control deck. You said it yourself, you try not to die and thats it. As it is I would say your deck is just trying to cast Fade Away (which to be honest is pretty bad effect especially if youre trying to play control) just to see what happens. If you're interested in building a true blue whote control deck i would be happy to help you. I would give lots of good card suggestions. As it is now, however, the control viability is almost non existent.
