You are playing Boeken's list of Br Vampires.
You are playing against UW Caw.
Sideboarding you have to decide between arc trial or forked bolt.
Which one you prefer?

neither, as they're both not killing sword of feast or famine.

I'd sideboard manic vandals or smashes in vampires now.

Neither are very good. The Arc Trail is a sorcery so if they can manage to spend the 4 mana to bring out a creature and equip it in the same turn it will have 3 toughness and you are still screwed. Forked Bolt is a little better since it is an instant and you can possibly get 2 Hawks, but if they only have 1 Hawk or 1 Stoneforge out you still going to be behind on card #. Staggershock might be a little better than both of those if you really need some removal.

Overall, I would agree with P4E and SB Vandals or Shatter (maybe even maindeck 1 since so many archetypes use artifacts now--Caw-Go, Boros, WW Quest, Tez).

1) Arc Trail and Forked Bolt are both very bad vs Caw-Go. @Magicman Forked Bolt is a Sorcery too.

2) Manic Vandal and Smash are both unsuitable for Vampires, 2 slow. And bad deals with Tutelage. (Yep, Tutelage is still the winning Card vs Control).

3) Use Crush. Low cmc, instant speed. With Cawblade on top and Tezz Decks following, its the perfect SB-Hate.
