Quote from TheLoneN00b »Are there ways to attack KCI that aren't straightforward? Currently it seems you either need graveyard hate/Surgical Extraction or you just lose.
Burn's just a complete mess, 2 CB and 2 Kambal aren't enough but I can't think of anything else that could tip the scales that much.
Abzan was just a grind

In any case I went 1-4 tonight. Beat storm handily, then lost twice to burn and twice to abzan. Burn's just a complete mess, 2 CB and 2 Kambal aren't enough but I can't think of anything else that could tip the scales that much.
Abzan was just a grind that was so tilt-inducing at the end it killed any thoughts I had at playing in the SCGOpen tomorrow. Siege Rhino is next to impossible to stop, bedlam reveler felt dead super often between pulse, path, Liliana's -2 and goyfs; and when I cut all my discard like the sideboard guide says, they kept all theirs in and I was very quickly stuck in topdeck mode facing down a pair of 4/5s and a lily ready to ult while I only have 3 lands and nothing in my graveyard to flash back.
what am I missing?
Quote from Nahiri the Harbinger »Questioning how good Hazoret actually is? I read only positive things about her here, and on reddit too, but for some reason the big "succesful" lists from large events don't run her at all...
If I go with only 3 Gravehatepieces in the board (2 Nihil, 1 Surgical as you all suggested) instead of 4, I could shove her in. Is she really worth it?
Quote from spawnofhastur »Usually against Abzan, I find Blood Moon strongly restricts their ability to actually... do things. But while I think we're favoured, we're not that favoured.
Quote from FlyingDelver »Was it normal Abzan or Abzan Traverse?
Specifically Abzan Traverse has a favouarble matchup against us, as Leonardo who got second at Sao Paulo claims. Trample is the key here. It seems really weird that your opponent kept all discard and especially LoTV after g1. LotV is really bad against us.
Quote from Brightmist »You're more likely to see Mishra's Bauble if it was traverse. Traverse is 3-of in most lists these days whereas Bauble is always 4-of.

Edit 2: Delver, can you make sideboard plan to spirits, i think is one match wee sse more and more.
