Notes for the sideboard:
Dismember: is good against a lot of things (twin, siege rhino's, spellskite's ect) and helps lower overall life total. Excellent card
Nihil spellbomb: helps to take care of griselbran reanimator as well as Grixis control/delver decks
Lightning bolt: comes in to replace thoughtseize against other "all-in" style decks such as burn, affinity or infect - spellskite is another excellent card for these match-ups
Twin can be race'd or the use of vines of vastwood/spellskite can stop Splinter Twin from resolving
Finally pyroclasm is just absolute destruction against affinity. You were looking for good sideboard tech vs affinity? This is it.
Burn is still the toughest matchup but leyline of sanctity takes up too many SB slots and can be drawn into making it horrible. Spellskite is an all-star here and lightning bolt comes in to replace the wraiths. Also death's shadow is actually amazing against burn as they can't do anything against it except for Path which we already have an answer to. I would say it's generally a 50/50 matchup post board.
Thoughts on the overall deck/SB strategy? We're not sure about faith's shield or hooting mandrills.
