I need help desiging a side board since I've never used one. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Time to swarm. >:D
Here's how I would build the sideboard, but keep in mind that the sideboard is highly dependant on the metagame and will change as certain decks become popular. This list is based on testing I've done with my own Junk decks like The Art of Decay
3 Wolfir Avenger against zombies/azorius aggro-detain, also hits planeswalkers like Tamiyo pretty hard.2 Pithing Needle against jace/tamiyo control, but also useful against things like Lotleth Troll and card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice2 Sundering Growth . Depends on if you expect Sphere of Safety or Detention Sphere to be a problem.4 Tragic Slip for aggro/midrange. Even though you don't run much black, the instant speed removal will be very important in the early turns, and later you can chump block with a token to get morbid.3 Rest in Peace Highly useful utility card against zombies or anything with Blood Artist , frites/reanimator, and snapcaster control.1 Sever the Bloodline this card can lead to blowouts against decks that don't diversify and can save your butt against Entreat the Angels tokens
Abrupt Decay and Garruk Relentless Flip would both be amazing in here if you can afford it. Also I'd remove Farseek and Increasing Devotion . I run a deck very similar that works incredibly well for me and will be going to FNM this Friday. If you want to take a look here's the link: deck:here-comes-the-flood
after taking a quick glance at your deck here are some cards i think would have synergy with what you have so far. Phantom General for more buffs on your token army. Growing Ranks for more tokens (always a good thing). also i think Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage would do well along side your card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. on the defensive side of things i think some card:Druid's Deliverance , Sundering Growth , and Rootborn Defenses would do nicely. and for more tokens there are also card:Coursers' Accord and Precinct Captain . all in all i think you have a good thing going here. keep it up.
