My SB is very diverse because in most matchups we don’t want to SB too heavily to maintain the core of the deck, and thus I felt compelled to pinpoint very specialized cards to help in difficult matchups.
About the Burn matchup... please correct me if I’m wrong, but Meddling Mage and Freebooter should be used to aggressively block Burn’s attackers
Kambal isn’t as good as I though he could have been. Rather than punishing Control (a role Burn takes against Humans) with Kambal, we’re probably better fighting attrition with card advantage (thanks to Militia Bugler).
Mulliganing aggressively to Auriok Champion is probably the way to go.
Should we start thinking about Tajic as a main deck solution in our few flex spots?
Other than that, I can see that we’ll probably have to swap Freebooters for Unsettled Mariners, except that this gives more room for Combo to thrive.
On the 4-Thalia topic: as long as phoenix is one of the best decks (if not the best) in modern you want 4 thalia, I think thats a no brainer.
I think we can beat Hogaak without playing to much gravehate
