okay so i am a noob. I do know how to play the game and im no stranger to tournaments. But as im new to playing this card game i have some questions.
1. What is so great about delver?
2. What cards are good trade fodder atm. I dont feel like carrying 5 boxes worth of cards to every tournament lol
3. i need help on my deck to make it ready to bring to my local hobby shop. Mostly need sidedeck help but deck suggestions would be nice to



Thanks in advance for any tips or help provided

1) Delver is good because it puts your opponent on a fast clock since it's usually a 3/2 beatstick with evasion by turn 2. That isn't to say that it isn't easy to deal with, but it puts you in a reactionary position if you're playing against it.
2) What is good trading fodder is usually based on what you're willing to trade and what you want. Duel lands, payable mythic like Thundermaw Hellkite and Sublime Archangel, any planeswalker.
3) I would maybe cut two spells and add two land, just to make your land draws more consistent.

If you trade up one or 2 of your red spells for thunderous wrath. They can really tip any game in your favor if you are lucky enough to draw it. Good luck at your next FNM! :p
