This whole thing is kind of ridiculous. I have two very similar B/W Tokens decks on here and it says one is 85% casual; the other 100% competitive. WTF

1) I tested Hidden Stockpile shortly after it was first spoiled. It's one of those cards that unfortunately doesn't live up to its apparent potential in practice. Too slow/clunky/inconsistent.
2) Most competitive BW tokens decks run 23 land. This build is a little different in part because of the sheer number of 3-drops (11!) and the importance of getting to that 3 land mark, but also because of the complexity of the mana requirements. It's not entirely infrequent that I will want to play both Spectral Procession and Liliana of the Veil before my fourth land hits the board, but that is only an extreme example representative of a larger issue that this deck attempts to overcome with a complex and highly tailored Land Base.
Land flooding happens from time to time, more frequently at 24 land than 23, of course, but I found myself wanting for land more frequently at 23 than I am flush with it at 24. If I could run 23.6 land, I would be haha.
It's funny that you bring this up, because the 23 vs. 24 land debate has been going on for so long now that it's almost a running joke. I am looking at this swap for my next change to the deck:
-1 Spectral Procession
+1 Legion's Landing
+1 Path to Exile
...which kind of splits the difference between 23 and 24. Looking forward to testing it out at any rate.
