Sam Pardee breaks down the nuances of the aggro matchup against control on this week’s episode. You’ll learn how to change your plan of attack against your control opponent based on the specifics of each player’s deck. We’ll also cover the complicated art of playing around sweepers and countermagic, cards that your control opponents are sure to be playing and about which you’ll need to make tough choices to play into. Finally, we’ll dive into how the matchup can change with the introduction of the sideboard. The episode is full of examples from current and past Standards, Modern, and even a bit of Legacy!
