BW Tokens is a midrange attrition deck that includes aspects of aggro and control allowing it to be exceptionally versatile and adaptable. Using efficient discard and removal effects such as Inquisition of Kozilek and Path to Exile to disrupt and respond to opponents, and by relying on token creatures which are functionally identical the deck nullifies the benefits of one for one answers that are prevalent throughout Modern.

As a general rule BW Tokens is favored against Affinity, Burn, Delver, Jund/Junk, as well as most other control/midrange decks.

UG Infect is a fair matchup but relies heavily on seeing disruption.

Dredge, Elves, and Merfolk are unfavorable but not unbeatable. The same is true for combo decks such as Abzan Company, Ad Nauseum, and Living End.

Eldrazi and Valakut decks are very unfavorable and difficult to beat even post board.

Tron is horrendous and as the changes needed to beat Tron are in most cases detrimental to the every other matchup the accepted practice is to accept this and not run Tron specific hate cards.

BW Tokens is inherently a "Meta" deck and no two lists will be identical due to the need to customize and tune the deck for the meta it will be played in. Sideboard choices should in general avoid narrow answers for specific decks/cards. Instead focus on broad catch all type cards that have applications against a variety of decks/archetypes. This allows the deck to be as flexible as possible which is especially useful when playing in an unknown or large meta such as that of an Open or Grand Prix type event.
