I've been playing GBW rock for quite some time now, piloted it to a 6-3 record on GP chicago (one win short of day 2). The white gives you acces to vindicate, which is still a lot better then pulse. Also canonist from the side is great for the ANT matchup, as discard just doesn't get there against the EOT mystical tutor draw.

I run a bit land heavy without wastelands, because all the decks needs is to reach the mid-long game and then your cards are just stronger then those off the opponent, and you have removal for every threat he plays.

Counterbalance isn't a problem, because you either make him discard it, you proactively own it with pridemage, or you destroy it with vindicate/deed. Deed is great against cb/top decks, dreadstill and goblins when you're on the play.
The decks main weakness is moon effects and back to basics, but there's a few basic lands in there that you can fetch in advance if you know you're up against a deck running them.
Rock is kind of an allround deck. You can beat any deck, but you can also lose against pretty much anything. Only dreadstill and countertop decks are really good matchups. Zoo and goblins are slighly worse but still winnable.

I think what he's trying to say is you need to have a gameplan, try and be aggressive in the early game or go more for drawn out games.
Dark ritual gives card disadvantage in exchange for temp, while deed and top give you card advantage and quality, but they slow you down. Therefore deed and top should not be played in the same deck as dark ritual.

My deck is more of a slower version focussing on the mid-long game. A deck like that is great for homebrew lists. If you want to play aggresively with rituals and specters just netdeck eva green really, it's pretty much the best aggressive GB list out there.
