Sideboarding is one of Magic‘s trickier aspects, and I don’t pretend to have it down. That’s why I’m constantly experimenting with my sideboards and my sideboarding plans, even with decks I consider myself an “expert” on.
Recently, I’ve been running a singleton sideboard alongside my Grixis Death’s Shadow build, packing one each of fifteen different cards. This setup lets me experiment with a lot of different cards at once and flex my sideboard plan alongside my ever-changing local meta.
Below, I’ll walk you through my sideboard at the time of this writing, as well as some rationale for why each card found its place in my board. This isn’t an exhaustive Death’s Shadow sideboarding guide, but it should give you a good place to start from when tuning for your own local meta (where you’ll likely want to play more than one of some of these cards).
