Hello my dears, it's me "Betão", today we are going to continue talking about some cards that may help you, PDH player, building your deck. Starting from where we left, lets talk a little more about card advantage, and some cards that help you obtain it.

Card Advantage

This concept is the advantage that a player obtains throughout the game, using cards that make uneven trades in their favor,

having permanents you control drawing you cards,

drawing cards based in your state, in this example as a Monarch,

or forcing your opponent to discard cards, because the less cards a player has in hand, fewer the resources he has, which makes harder for him to answer threats or attempt to control the field.

Here are some good cards that obtain you card advantage: Ninja of the Deep Hours Mulldrifter Thorn of the Black Rose Gush Rhystic Study Okiba-Gang Shinobi Bestial Fury Abundant Growth Capashen Standard

Global Effects

Continuing, let's talk about cards that have global effects, that is, cards that don't work only in a single target, but either affects the target and every other permanent that share a characteristic with it,

or don't have a target, affecting every permanent of a type

These cards are very useful for resetting the game and obtaining advantage out of it. They also work as lifesavers, when one or more opponents are far ahead. Here are some examples of them: Serene Heart Nausea Suffocating Fumes Swirling Sandstorm The third type of cards that we will discuss in this article are the removals. They help you to eliminate threats, blockers, or even combo pieces. There are many types of these, and they can be used in different types of permanents as, creatures, lands, enchantments and artifacts.

Creature Removal

Lands

Despite costing 4 manas, this land removal has an important feature, it can be cast again from the graveyard, paying its flashback cost. Here are some good land destruction: Choking Sands Molten Rain Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Rancid Earth Stone Rain

Counterspells

Counters are also very important. They have the potential to stop combos, wincons, commanders from entering the battlefield, and many other things. They are pretty useful throughout the game and, there aren't only blue counters: Counterspell Mana Leak Negate Memory Lapse Prohibit Dispel Mana Tithe Artifact Blast Avoid Fate Dash Hopes Pyroblast Dawn Charm

Tutors and ramps

Following, lets talk about cards that may help you find something necessary for a specific situation as, combo pieces or spot removals. That's the role of the cards also known as tutors.
