Probably demolishes any aggro deck, and has some game against Valakut, but i'm not so sure that it can beat Ub control ever.

I think you can say the same thing against a couple other decks... Even against most of mono-red decks that are mostly based on direct damage, UB control as you said and most of control decks that are being played nowadays...

But that doesn't mean that it isn't a nice deck... I can see a lot of trouble to creature-based decks, vampires, maybe boros, etc...

In my opinion this is like that anti-jund decks that some people played sometime ago... Its good against a specific type of deck, but don't have a lot of options when your opponent plays with a different one...

(Luminarch Ascension would be nice with all that creature removals)

Which is probably why Ub control is the most-played deck in the format....

And there's no way this deck doesn't destroy aggro decks. It plays more removal than regular Uw control, which is already a nightmare for aggro decks.

Except Preordain, Squadron Hawk, Spreading Seas, and Everflowing Chalice.

60% of the time, it plays removal or a threat every time!

I like "UW Tap Out" but I hate this list.

You aren't presenting enough threats for UB to "have" to counter a majority of them.

So much spot removal is actually just unnecessary maindeck. Kibler's approach of SB'ing most of it is just better.

Gideon Jura, in no way or form is bad against any deck and should be maindeck over journey to nowhere, which is almost a dead card in the mirror and against UB.

No Ratchet Bomb plus sun titan. Sweet. Also no sea gate or wall of omens which are superior recursion targets with sun titan. Also sweet.

No sunblast angel?!

Yeah, I would suggest just making your own list before playing this one. I would like to think this is metagamed to beat... boros/elves/vampires (although no purge?) etc...
