This list and the other lists that are linked on the page are pretty good. Although, you should note that they use data from decks entered in the website, so some cards listed aren't necessarily staples for the format in general (like Lightning Bolt ) but are played in every deck of a popular archetype; for example, Nature's Claim is in the top 10 most played cards but is only up there since it's a 4-of in every Tron sideboard, not every green deck like how Bolt is played in almost every red deck. Basically there's some mix-up with the general staples and the specific archetype staples, but it's accurate enough.

Path to Exile , Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , and Lingering Souls are the staples you need to know of, the first 4 being the most necessary includes in your deck. Wrath of God / Damnation / Day of Judgment are control staples that could be useful for you as well. If you want any more specific advice just ask.

Hey there,

I probably already know the answer for this but I want to make sure. If my opponent cast something like a Fatal Push on a creature that I control and I cast something to trigger the amulet to give my creatures hexproof, If creatures enters the battlefield after the trigger resolves, those will not have hexproof right?

Looks good! Wish I had money for Mesmeric Orb , Surgical Extraction and the fetch lands. Would definitely use Fatal Push if I had those.

I think you should add 2 or 3 copies of another mill spell, like Breaking or Mind Funeral . If one surgical extracts or extirpates your orbs, you won't mill that much. At least consider it for the sideboard

Hi Wallisface,

Thank you for your comment and point of view. I think ditching Mind Grind would indeed be a wise choice as well as Pilfered Plans . Concerning killspells/removal I will have to see what I have in stock (I sadly do not have any Fatal Push ).

Would you have any revommendations ?

Yes Keranos, God of Storms comes in against control matchups as well as most midrange type decks. The reason for this is that so-many decks are running Surgical Extraction (though the meta is shifting a little bit) so a plan B option in the sideboard felt like a necessary development (not being prepared for the multitude of Thoughtseize decks can be bad especially if you expect them to be out in force). Of the possible plan B's (most of which are listed in the primer above) Keranos, God of Storms is my personal favorite hence why he is included; this does not mean that he is the best option, that would probably be either Godhead of Awe or Dragonlord Dromoka right now looking at recent meta data, Crovax, Ascendant Hero may also have an outside chance if you are looking to play a plan B in the side. Honestly I'm thinking of making that slot a Boseiju, Who Shelters All as Dovin's Veto is a bit scary but I don't have enough data to gage how often I need to worry about that card. Otherwise the slot can be used for an extra Fatal Push / Path to Exile or as a flex spot.

As for Slaughter Pact I have always been a fan of it simply for its flexibility, it more reliably can answer certain problem cards such as Eidolon of Rhetoric than Fatal Push or it can buy a turn against decks like Amulet if things aren't going well. It also provides for some interesting scenarios with the math to win being free, most notably in the Humans matchup allowing us to beat a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben with 7 available mana, or remove something like Meddling Mage naming a combo piece for free and win at instant speed on time. Before putting in the plan B with Keranos, God of Storms I was actually on 2 Fatal Push and 1 Slaughter Pact and was happy with the results for a long time, when it came down to cutting one of those, I prioritized the Humans matchup where Slaughter Pact can be the difference, and at the same time allowing myself to have a removal spell for a quick Gurmag Angler or larger threat that push can't deal with as efficiently.

If you feel like you want Fatal Push (and I recommend it; that’s one of the biggest draws to playing B/W), I might take out one or two copies of Spectral Procession because the triple-white cost seems tough in a dual-color deck

The sorcery speed discard stuff seems weird in a deck that wants to run at instant speed and is chock full of counterspells anyways. I'd cut all of it and throw in 2 Celestial Colonnade as well as one more Supreme Verdict and one more Fatal Push . 23 lands also seems super greedy so even if you don't drop the discard spells that definitely needs to be fixed.
