Removed Consecrated Sphinx and replaced with Kitchen Finks to continue to lower the overall curve.

I switched out Meddling Mage for Squadron Hawk to up the speed of the deck but not the cmc. I took Reflector Mage out for Kitchen Finks from the original SaffronOlive build because I think Finks is strictly better especially with the Resto Angel interaction.

I feel like this deck is missing Eldrazi Displacer as like a 2 of. It's such a great card. Maybe test 2 of them in place of 2 Resto angels

I don't think you need 4 Knight of Autumn in the main, but that may be a meta call for you. 2main 1 side Not sure where you'd fit it but Aven Mindcensor is also a good card to consider.

Kitchen Finks is also a great card for D&T sideboard if you can fit 1-2

@ Turtle338872 I was actually considering Knight of Autumn to add to my deck but am not quite sure what I would get rid of to do so. If you could "choose 2" with her ability it would be a no-brainer, and while I do like her flexibility, running 4 Qasali Pridemage currently feels like enough when it comes to enchantment/artifact hate, as well as a playset of Kitchen Finks to help with the life gain. Her ETB-only ability makes her a little limiting in my opinion.

First of all if this is for modern I just realized, you'll have to replace Trench Gorger as it isn't modern legal. (It was only printed in a commander set, which is a 'supplemental product'. Cards that are only printed in supplemental products aren't modern legal).

Now, there's two roles any sideboard card can fill: Fighting the Meta, and Fighting your Bad Matchups. Bonus points if the card hits both of those categories.

For the Meta, you can run Damping Sphere or Ceremonious Rejection vs Tron. Sphere is also very good against Storm. You're good against blood moon so you don't need to worry about that. Mardu Pyromancer and Burn are both prevalent, so lifegain may be a smart idea. The best you have access to is likely Kitchen Finks. Lingering Souls, Snapcaster, Tarmogoyf, Kolaghan's Command, and all sorts of other high-power graveyard shenanigans are popular right now so you'll likely want some graveyard hate. Relic of Progenitus is the best option in your colors that comes to mind. Grafdigger's Cage doesn't stop the delve threats or goyf but it does have the advantage of stopping Collected Company and Chord of Calling, so you could consider that instead. Azorius control is huge right now - a couple Negates to hit their planeswalkers and fight back against their counters/removal can go a long way. Combo decks are not exactly prevalent but they are very powerful - Negate is good against most of them. Instant speed removal can be good at disrupting their combo too, of which your best options are probably Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within. Vapor Snag is an option too but it may not even stop the combo depending on what it is.

Now, for things you're weak against - Burn will kick your ass, and HARD. Kitchen Finks will be invaluable in that matchup. You could also consider Leyline of Sanctity, but those are pricy and you'd be relying 100% on them being in your opening hand. Affinity and Boggles are like burn's weird cousins, and both of them are weak to effects like Nature's Claim and Naturalize. Control decks are probably going to be hard for you since your plan is clearly telegraphed and easy to interact with. Negate is good like I mentioned, and you might even consider Heroic Intervention to avoid wraths blowing you out. Combo decks (Ad Nauseum, KCI, Amulet Titan, etc) are all going to be very hard for you since you have no way to stop them from going off. Negate is great here, and some of that instant speed removal I mentioned can help too. Naturalize effects can snipe combo pieces in a lot of decks, too. But above all, the thing I think you're going to struggle the most against is targeted discard spells. Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtsieze, Kitesail Freebooter, and other similar cards are played far and wide across the format, and they'll pick your deck to pieces. I really like what you've constructed here but a well placed discard spell or two can turn this rumbling tank of a deck into a pile of uncastable and useless cards. The only real 'good' answer a deck like yours can have to that is Leyline of Sanctity. Barring that, I suppose you could try Noxious Revival or Wildest Dreams type effects? They won't be very effective but it'll be better than nothing.

I know that's a lot to throw at you, but above all remember that the most important part of building a sideboard is knowing what your local environment is like. If there's 20 Tron players in your store, you'll want as many anti-Tron pieces as you can pack. Conversely, if there's no Tron players then you won't want to run any anti-tron pieces.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun! :)

There are some older primers on G/W beatdown- Its been a solid teir 2.5 deck for a long while. Think there were budget 'little kid' G/W lists floating around intended to be an introduction to the format, and more recently there are devastating midrange/combo hybrids, as well as the infamous troll worship.

Take a look at sideboards to support it and It'll compete for FNMs in all but the most cutthroat metas.

Bant Sureblade/Naya Hushblade is traditional in new alara lists.

You can run an older hatebear style list built around Gaddock Teeg, and he's a devastating sideboard option in many matchups, even if he is substantially less format warping that in the past.

With the meta-move to use Kitchen Finks and the like for combo, its worth considering Solemnity or Worship/Troll Ascetic interactions.

Additionally, Glittering Wish/Congregation at Dawn is in these colours.

In terms of more recent cards its things like Renegade Rallier, Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Knight of Autumn and Oath of Ajani, although each points to different strategies and support cards.

I'd steer clear of Wayfaring Temple, Unflinching Courage and Mercy Killing- while they sound good in theory they play very poorly.

Pheardemons on Abzan Vraska, Queen of Modern

Would a couple Flagstones of Trokair be worthwhile? Because of the wording, you can get your shocklands after upticking Vraska, Golgari Queen. Obviously the problem is that Flagstones of Trokair isn't fetchable, and is legendary.

I'm curious as to your reasoning for Captured Sunlight. Of course it has the possibility to hit a free kill spell, but it can't hit Vraska, Golgari Queen and it only gains you four life by itself. Wouldn't more Kitchen Finks be a better replacement here since it would be another good fodder trigger for Vraska's uptick? And unless it is Path to Exiled, it also gains you four life.

Do you really think you need four Qasali Pridemage mainboard? It seems like 2 or 3 of them can be in the sideboard against decks that don't use rely on artifacts or enchantments heavily.

You have A LOT of graveyard hate in the forms of Scavenging Ooze, Dryad Militant, Relic of Progenitus, and Surgical Extraction. Something to consider would be to buckle down on one type of graveyard hate that does everything you need. Maybe Grafdigger's Cage or Leyline of the Void if you have the budget for it. Relic of Progenitus is really good as well, maybe just up it to four to make room for other stuff.

Lastly, I have many friends that get great use out of either Gaea's Revenge or Carnage Tyrant in the sideboard against control. Hexproof and uncounterable are just major powerhouses that control tends to not be able to deal with (admittedly miracles can deal with them a little easier with Terminus). Choke is definitely great if it lands, but that's a big "if" with control.

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.

I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Isamaru, Hound of Konda and Bushi Tenderfoot with Mox Amber seems playable, and suitably low to the ground.

My other thought would be to pack in card advantage and token creation while threatening Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with Kitchen Finks/.

Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.

Speaking of tokens, consistant token generation is great, but there is also Raise the Alarm and Timely Reinforcements out there.

Militia Bugler/Thraben Inspector/Ghostway might be nice. There are some decent soldier etbs out there.
