Quote from JuanAM8 »What do you guys think is the correct number of SB cards against Burn in an average metagame? I usually run 3 cards (a split of Feed the Clan, Pulse of Murasa and Obstinate Baloth) + 2 Scavenging Ooze + Enchantment hate against Eidolon

Alright. Let me go through the decks you mentioned one by one.
To beat Burn, run Feed the Clan. Looks like you already do. Scavenging Ooze is also great. Run them in the main. Maybe an extra in the sideboard. Sometimes you can pressure them with an Ooze and bait them into Skullcracking you to stop it, at which point you fire off a Feed the Clan in response.
I never play against Bogles myself, so I know very little about it. Hopefully others will offer advice here. I assume that Back to Nature is the dedicated hate plan and Natural State is a good all-round card to have with wide application in other matchups.
To beat Jund, run Evolutionary Leap and Thrun, the Last Troll. An early Leap can singlehandedly grind out a Jund deck.
To beat Death's Shadow (assuming Grixis), I would use roughly the same plan as I do for Jund. Maybe stick a single Blossoming Defense in the sideboard. But unlike Jund, I would play more carefully against Death's Shadow. Once they are below 10 life, try to win in one big swing.
I am not familiar with UR Delver either, but I assume cards like Choke and Eyes of the Wisent are good. I would not devote a lot of cards to killing the Delver itself, beyond the basic 3 Dismember that should be somewhere in your 75. I would just try to be aggressive and maybe stick one strong hate card if possible.
To beat Infect, tell the Infect player that it's not a deck anymore. If that doesn't work, try Gut Shot.
